Acoustic Rock Lyrics

Words and Music – Derek Eyden

ON THE OUTSIDE

Slow motion pictures in wire frames
Broken shattered playing games
Time and time again
you need assurance

In your heart
you say it’s surreal
Frightening
So easy to feel
Well can you call out and tell me what you’re thinking

Cos every time you find your way
You close it off, forget the day
Simply forget to acknowledge life

Dreaming, on the outside

Held captive in an open mind
Fractured hearts cannot unwind
Oh bless us for the actions that we follow

For there are pebbles, sand , with rock and stone
We’re falling over, finding home
Slightly happy, seldom in control

Cos every time we find our way
we close it off, forget the day
Simply forget to acknowledge life

Dreaming, on the outside

If you don’t know who you are
How will we ever grow
Some things I’ll never know

Slow motion pictures in wire frames
Broken shattered
I’ve been playing games
time and time again I need assurance

Held captive in my open mind
My fractured heart cannot unwind
Oh bless me please
I have no one to follow

Cos every time I find my way
I close it off, forget the day
I simply forget to acknowledge life

Dreaming from the outside

YOUR MOVE

Say you’re sorry
Say you love me and I’ll
Feel for your hand
Sing you songs through the night
All night

Sorrow torments my heart
Bleeds it dry
Doubt foments my sadness
Leaves me cold inside

So say you love me
Say you’re sorry tonight
Pull me nearer
Press your heart up to mine
Oh my

Solitude will only
Feed the pain
Harmony entices love
To become again

If you say you’re sorry
I’ll never let you go
If you really love me
Please just let me know

IN YOUR HEAD

It’s ok
You don’t have to explain, I understand
Please don’t patronise me
There’s no need to hold my hand
The only thing I was born with was time
So please excuse me now
I’d like to take my leave
So you can stop wasting more of mine

Why did you come today
Only to say goodbye
You could have messaged me your heart-felt feelings
Now I have to sit and watch you cry
What else am I to say
If these emotions aren’t realised
If I could fill all the dreams in your head
Would your demons be exorcised

Or would you stand there
Hand on knife

You call time
On the fear you’re afraid you might find
And the words that you use
Only cloud and confuse
All the doubt that you left behind
But I know who you are
And I’ve fallen too far

Why did you come today
Only to say goodbye
You could have messaged me your heart-felt feelings
Now I have to sit and watch you cry
What else am I to say
If these emotions aren’t realised
If I could fill all the dreams in your head
Would you demons be exorcised

You stole the moon and stars
And disappeared with the morning sun

It’s ok, I understand
But it’s not ok and I don’t understand

MORE THAN I SHOULD

Does the ever-glow of an afterlife
Filter through the centre
Through the eye of your heart
Do you call it love
Is it really light
Does it emanate from a source
We might know as God

Are there messages written in the stars
Is it all foretold
Or are we just stumbling along
On an unmarked path of discovery
Disparate
Contradictory
In a world without meaning
(Lost in a world without meaning)

Well, I don’t know
I can’t say
I see signs along the way
Formulas
Hints and clues
Enough to encourage
But not enough proof

If I don’t keep going
Will I lose my way
Can I make a difference
Does it help to pray

Simple random questions I have everyday

IF YOU DARE

We opened the door to the wind
and it blew us away
oh it changed the tide
Answers are seldom clear
There’s no way to love
We should know them all
We’ve tried

Love me at least
If you dare
You might hurt me love
But I’ve moved on from there
Playing it out in my head
I still need you love
Though I don’t always show
I really care

Love me if you dare..
