{ words & music by Simon Spire }

All this time

All my life

Waiting here for you

Never knew it, only now

Didn’t, but I hoped somehow

I’d find something true

All these days

All these ways

Whispering of you

Don’t know if you’ll remember me but

I know I will remember you

I always do

*

I’ve tried to fight my way

I’ve tried to hide but only your eyes I find

Only you I find

*

All these years

All my fears

Everything I knew

It was another life that

Dreaming, half-awake I

Fell into

*

I’ve tried to run away

I’ve tried to lie but only your eyes I find

Only you I find

*

All this time

All my life

Waiting here for you

I only see it now

In every moment how I

Somehow knew

Have your way

Erase my name

Nothing else remains

It’s never been so clear

Every sound I hear

Has so much to say

*

I’ve struggled all this time

I’ve fought the fight but only your eyes I find

Only you I find

Lyrics – The Blue Pill »

{ words & music by Simon Spire }

I’m too honest

I’m too honest

*

Maybe now it’s about time

I start telling myself some lies

And living in disguise

‘Cause I’m too honest

*

And honesty hurts, it’ll burn

It’ll cause a lot of trouble

Why don’t I tell a lie,

And live inside a bubble?

*

You know it’s easier to never know what you’re missing

So when you hear me say ‘only truth matters’

Well don’t listen

No don’t listen

*

Throw your inspiration out the window

And drive along the streets that you already know

It only ever made your life difficult

So just stop listening – yes, you can do it!

*

You’re just too honest

You’re too honest

*

And one day you will finally see

That you don’t really want to be free

So much nicer instead to be happy

So why bother?

*

Yeah, maybe I’d rather laugh at my heart some day

And all the silly things that it used to say

And maybe now’s the time I’ll start telling some lies

*

‘Cause I’m too honest

I’m too honest

*

Maybe now it’s about time

I start telling myself some lies

Lyrics – Today »

{ words & music by Simon Spire }

There’s more to today than it seems

There’s more to a life than it dreams

And I’m not gonna run away from here

There’s more to today than we know

There’s more to today than it shows

And I’m not gonna run away from here

*

And if the sky falls down with a crumbling sound I won’t go, I won’t go

And though I might wish it hadn’t all come to this I won’t move, I won’t move

I’ll stay right here, I’ll stay right here

*

There’s more to today than we know

There’s more to our world than it shows

If we only hear an echo of a future that is born today

*

And if the sky falls down with a crumbling sound I won’t go, I won’t go

And though I might wish it hadn’t all come to this I won’t move, I won’t move

I’ll stay right here, I’ll stay right here

I’ll stay right here, I’ll stay right here

*

Stay with me stay with me while the center of it all unfolds

Uncovering what’s whole

Every moment, every random happenstance is part of this, somewhere we know

*

The world is waiting for the hero under every face

To come alive and see with open eyes our rightful place

*

There’s more to today than it seems

There’s more to a life than it dreams

*

And if the sky falls down with a crumbling sound I won’t go, I won’t go

And though I might wish it hadn’t all come to this I won’t move, I won’t move

And if the sky falls down with a crumbling sound I won’t go, I won’t go

And even then I’m waiting here right until the very end, and I won’t move

I’ll stay right here, I’ll stay right here

I’ll stay right here, I’ll stay right here

Lyrics – Light Survives »

{ words & music by Simon Spire }

I could never have seen

What love would mean oh no

I could never have known

The price would be total, no

I would never have thought

I’d choose to surrender

I would never have known

That love is a fall that goes

*

On and on and on, never leaving here till you’re gone

Leaving everything of me behind

Take a little more, go ahead you can melt it all

And nothing but your light survives

*

There’s nothing else to do

But let you have me

I can’t run away from you

It’s already ridiculed everything I knew

I’m starting to feel love is

Hollowing me through

So much bigger than me, it goes

*

On and on and on, never leaving here till you’re gone

Leaving everything of me behind

Take a little more, go ahead you can melt it all

And nothing but your light survives

On and on and on, never leaving here till you’re gone

Leaving everything of me to die

Taking all I got, taking all I am, till it’s gone

There’s nowhere left to hide

*

I’ve been holding on

I’ve been holding on

I’ve been holding on until I cannot stop the fall

*

Into the heart of it all, there’s nowhere left to hide

Into the darkness I fall, and leave myself behind

Love doesn’t wait till it’s safe, to blow it all away

Leaving itself in your place, and nothing else remains

*

On and on and on, never leaving here till you’re gone

Leaving everything of me behind

Take a little more, go ahead you can melt it all

And nothing but your light survives

I had it all together before love, yeah, I, had it all down and wise I was but,

The deeper it goes, the deeper it hurts, the deeper it shows – it shows

*

And I’ve been holding on

Lyrics – Knocking On An Open Door »

{ words & music by Simon Spire }

I’ve tried to fill the hole in my heart

But each time wound up at the start

*

And oh, what’s whole, is whole, that’s all

That is all

Nothing’s wrong

*

And I have had so many names, I watch them fade away

‘Cause I have searched so many worlds, afraid I was too late

And I have told so many lies, but mostly tried to fool my own eyes

And still everything I cried out for, well I was knocking on an open door

*

And oh, what’s whole, is whole, that’s all

That is all

Nothing’s wrong

*

And all this sound is singing out and echoing in everything

And even though I’ve run forever still I find it waiting for me

And all this sound is raining down and I cannot say what it is for

But I’ve been knocking on an open door

That is all

*

Freedom’s like love on Halloween

Dressed for a horror scene

Waiting in the deepest dark, to tear apart

Everything we know

*

And oh, what’s whole, is whole, that’s all

And oh, what’s whole, is still whole, that is all

That is all

Nothing’s wrong

That is all

That is all

Lyrics – A Four-Letter Word »

{ words & music by Simon Spire }

Sky elevators

A four-letter word

Lie by the pavement

Down here on earth

Half-finished castles

Blueprints for change

We’ll leave them behind here as we

Forget our names

*

If I could fly I’d take us only where the light is found

And never come back down, never have to hit the ground

*

Would all of the planets

Spin twice as fast?

And would all of the boundaries

Shatter like glass?

*

If I could fly I’d take us only where the light is found

And never come back down, never have to hit the ground

If you believe then I’ll believe in what we’re fighting for

(All the waiting stars will sing out)

That this is real, not a dreamer’s world anymore

(Shining just for you and me now)

*

And we would fly for all the world, show them how

And nothing more would keep us here on the ground

For every voice unheard

Live a four-letter word

A four-letter word

*

If I could fly I’d take us only where the light is found

And never come back down, never have to hit the ground

If you believe then I’ll believe in what we’re fighting for

That this is real, not a dreamer’s world anymore

*

Sky elevators

A four-letter word

Lie by the pavement

Down here on earth

Lyrics – Turn Away »

{ words & music by Simon Spire }

I dreamed I saw your face in another place

And all our words lit the sky

And on them we could fly

We found a burning light

And saw beyond any horizon we had ever known

And it had just begun

And all our chains lay shattered far behind, out of sight

*

Why’d we have to throw it away?

Why’d we have to throw it away?

Why’d we bust our way through the gates, just to turn away?

*

We saw a scarlet bird

And then a second and we soared as we watched them dance

Then – gasp –

They grew twice our size and, scared,

I pushed you safe behind

And wrestled with magnificence

And battled innocence

We fled and tripped and fell our way back down, to the ground

*

Why’d we have to throw it away?

Why’d we have to throw it away?

Why’d we bust our way through the gates, just to turn away?

*

Why’d we have to burn alive the only thing that ever shined?

*

I dreamed I saw a world

Where freedom rose above the shadows of our history

And all were listening

To stories of the chosen ones

And how it had begun

With throwing off the shackles then refusing to pretend

And all the walls to which we once had bowed, hit the ground

*

Why’d we have to throw it away?

Why’d we have to throw it away?

Why’d we bust our way through the gates, just to turn away?

Lyrics – Liberate Your Love »

I have seen the centuries of

Glimmers soaked in frightened dreams

Of stooping underneath the rooftops

Hiding beneath the canopy

*

To block out all the light, easier to close our eyes

Live and die in the shadows of night

And tie down the mystery in the name of certainty

But tell me, when do we decide to shine?

*

Do we even know what this light is all for?

Do we even know that this time is all ours?

I know how to fly and I know how to fall I can’t

Bear to deny it anymore

*

And I have watched the wasted years of

Walking within the city walls

Of enemies and cannonballs

Never to fly for the fear of falling

*

But we have waited too long in the shadows

All the safe rides never going where we belong

And I’m gonna let my song fly in front of me

And if I fall it won’t be in the place I was born

*

Do we even know what this light is all for?

Do we even know that this time is all ours?

I know how to fly and I know how to fall I can’t

Bear to deny it anymore

*

So liberate your love

Obliterate it all

Open up your eyes and see

Become who you were born to be

Liberate your love

Turn it all to dust

Step out of the shadows

Nothing else is needed but the moment we can sing it out

*

Do we even know what this light is all for?

Do we even know that this time is all ours?

I know how to fly and I know how to fall I can’t

Bear to deny it anymore

Lyrics – Whisper From The Dark »

{ words & music by Simon Spire }

*

Sorry I’m too late for you

It’s taken all this time to move

And how long have you waited here, but I never heard my name

Lyrics – No Solid Ground »

{ words & music by Simon Spire }

*

Is there a place where the ground won’t move?

A carefully organized, single room

I’d search every corner, exposing my lies

So nothing is left as a nasty surprise
