Lyrics from Still Life

Lie To Yourself

(Dayve Dean)

Ten lovers no substitute
You can't find a way out
Stop feeling it's absolute
You'll always find there's some way out
Ten players sing out of tune
You still want their autograph
All finishing way too soon
Why do you always

Lie to yourself, cry to yourself?
You know that I want no more
You know that I can't take no more

Sometimes the battle is nearly won
You feel you're not really there
You think everything's just begun
When you're not even there
Ten murders and just for fun
Is all this just a joke to you?
You've got the service of everyone
Still you always

Lie to yourself, cry to yourself
You know that I want no more
You know that I can't take no more

It's not like it's supposed to be
You can't help feeling it's wrong
There's ten reasons that you just can't see
And always there - so why do you feel you must always

Lie to yourself, cry to yourself?
You know that I want no more
You know that I can't take no more
You always lie to yourself, cry to yourself
You know that I want no more
You know that I can't take no more

If You Don't Trust Me

(Dayve Dean)

I've been around. You've been around, round in circles trying to find
That special someone who'll take you to that certain paradise
I'm not that person and I don't want to be right by your side where you want me
We've been through this over and over again. I can't stay, I just wonder

If you don't trust me how can you know me?
If you don't trust me how can you love me?
We've been through this over and over again
I can't stay if you don't trust me

Think two years on - would you still want to be right where you are, here with me?
It's not what I want. I just think that it's time to move on
We've been through this time and time again. I can't stay

If you don't trust me how can you know me?
If you don't trust me how can you love me?
We've been through this over and over again
I can't stay

So many things I still want to see but I know you won't see them with me
So many things I still want to be but you won't let me be if you don't trust me

If you don't trust me how can you know me?
If you don't trust me how can you love me?
We've been through this over and over again
I can't stay if you don't trust me

I've been around. You've been around, round in circles.

Innocent

(Dayve Dean)

I never proved you were innocent
But still you expect me to, but first
I've got to prove my own innocence
Before I can think about you, it seems
Running away doesn't cut it now
But it served its purpose for me, and now
You want me to prove you were innocent

It's been a long, long time since I thought of that place
You know that I never wanted to go
It's always perfect 20:20 when you view in hindsight
Things from a long, long time ago

You want me to prove you were innocent
But it's not that easy to do because
You want it all, and you want it all
Without even a conscience in you, that's why
I knew from the start I should run away
Hanging on like the fool that I knew I was
So I never proved you were innocent

It's been a long, long time since I thought of that place
You know that I never wanted to go
It's always perfect 20:20 when you view in hindsight
Things from a long, long time ago

I know that you didn't want me
You were just using me
So I never proved you were innocent
And I'll never prove it

I'll never prove you were innocent
I'll never prove you were innocent
I'll never prove you were innocent
I'll never prove it
It's been a long, long time since I thought of that place
You know that I never wanted to go
It's always perfect 20:20 when you view in hindsight
Things from a long, long time ago

I never proved you were innocent...

Like Jimmy Did

(Dayve Dean)

Appearances can be deceptive
Why must we follow the lead?
We don't do as we're expected
Still trying to find the need

I know we need a role model to get us in the scene
I need someone to look up on and that's where he fits in

I think I'm seeing the world like Jimmy did
I think I'm playing with girls like Jimmy did
I think I'm seeing the world like Jimmy did
I think I'm starting to fall like Jimmy did

We knew a long gone hero
The style never fades
It's not a perfect de nouveau
To make us live again

I think I'm seeing the world like Jimmy did
I think I'm playing with girls like Jimmy did
I think I'm seeing the world like Jimmy did
I think I'm starting to fall like Jimmy did
I don't know (I've got to be there I feel)
I feel close to him tonight
I've got to follow (I've got to follow I know)
I know it's right

I think I'm seeing the world like Jimmy did
I think I'm playing with girls like Jimmy did
I think I'm seeing the world like Jimmy did
I think I'm starting to fall like Jimmy did

The Beginning of the War

(Dayve Dean)

Another child is born in this land of holy reunion...

It's never difficult to see where the problem is
When you're not living the dream
There's always something wrong to which they're oblivious
And it always seems so obvious to me

Start the argument, raise the continent
Bring people together again
Still searching for something to strike out like a miracle
The beginning of the war

Another child is born in this land of holy reunion
Taking sides and telling lies will not end all this confusion
Seeing all the seven wonders they search for a solution
But they know that they're not going there at all

When two people locked in battle stand staring face to face
It's never what it seems to be
They tell each other lies then laugh to give the game away
But still they all believe

Brave the consequence, feel the confidence
To bring people together again
Still looking out for some way they can place the blame
On the enemy - but i don't think that you killed anyone

Another child is born in this land of holy reunion
Taking sides and telling lies will not end all this confusion
Seeing all the seven wonders they search for a solution
But they know that they're not going there at all

What must it be like to be in there?
What must it be like to be so bitter?
Start the argument, raise the continent
Brave the consequence, feel the confidence
To bring people together again
Still searching for something to strike out like a miracle
The beginning of the war

Another child is born in this land of holy reunion...

Still Life

(Dayve Dean)

Snow is falling from the winter skies of grey
Shattered streetlamps from the forties guide my way
As I walk through this crowd of neverending sadness
One voice calls out to me and says "Make it better..."

Still life is what we're made of
Still life is what we're made of
Still life

Not a moment passes where I don't feel ashamed
look at the people and wonder who's to blame
What would it take to set this perfect nation free?
Look in the mirror, no-one looks back at me

Still life is what we're made of
Still life is what we're made of
Still life

And it may be when your time has come
There's nothing left to find
And it may be when your time has come
There's no place left to hide
Still life is what we're made of
Still life is what we're made of
Still life, what we're made of
Still life is what we're made of
Still life

End of the Day

(Dayve Dean)

Oh Lord, oh Lord, do I have to say I’m sorry?
Do I have to pray forgiveness now, oh Lord?
Oh Lord, oh Lord, you know everyone has a weakness
Do I have to confess my sins now, oh Lord?
I’m coming to the end of the day.

People change in the world
I’ve been changing
Changing the way I feel.
I know I’ve done things
I may not live to regret
What does it really matter
When I’m coming to the end of the day?

It’s never what it seems
When it’s seen from a new perspective
It’s changing the way I feel.
And even stars will fade
When they’ve played out their objective
It’s not what I expected
But I’m coming to the end of the day

Oh Lord, oh Lord, do I have to say I’m sorry?
Do I have to pray forgiveness now, oh Lord?
Oh Lord, oh Lord, you know everyone has a weakness
Do I have to confess my sins now, oh Lord?
I’m coming to the end of the day.

Waiting in the wings
Anticipating
And changing the way I feel
My final curtain call
My floodlights have all faded
There’s no-one stayed to hear me
But I’m playing to myself anyway.

No finger placing blame
No chip upon my shoulder
Is changing the way I feel
I feel my eyes grow dim
Searching for the horizon
Waiting for the confession
And the signal it’s the end of the day.

Oh Lord, oh Lord, do I have to say I’m sorry?
Do I have to pray forgiveness now, oh Lord?
Oh Lord, oh Lord, you know everyone has a weakness
Do I have to confess my sins now, oh Lord?
I’m coming to the end of the day.

People change in the world
I’ve been changing
Changing the way I feel.
We have all done things
We may not live to regret
But what does it really matter
When we’re coming to the end of the day?

Cause people change in the world
I’ve been changing
Changing the way I feel
I'm coming to the end of the day

Heaven

(Dayve Dean)

Heaven comes to all of us
Heaven's cast its spell on us

You wouldn't notice what you were doing to yourself
You couldn't realise that you were killing yourself
She took you in
Said you'd get even one day
And you were so proud
But you crawl away

Heaven comes to all of us
No matter if you want it to
And heaven's cast its spell on us
It's gonna do the same to you

You wanted freedom
You didn't know it was sold
You were so wrapped up in yourself
You lost everything that you owned
She took you in
Held you in her arms like a child
And still you're so proud
But you crawl away

Well heaven comes to all of us
No matter if you want it to
And heaven's cast its spell on us
It's gonna do the same to you

Heaven comes to all of us
No matter if you want it to

It seems like you misrepresent
The feelings you should honour
Some day you'll get your recompense
With something that should happen a long, long time from now

Heaven comes to all of us
No matter if you want it to
She took you in
Said you'd get even one day
And still you're so proud
When you crawl away

Well heaven comes to all of us
No matter if you want it to
And heaven's cast its spell on us
It's gonna do the same to you

The Same Road

(Dayve Dean)

Well I don't care what you're made of
But I care what you're saying about me
And I don't care what you think of it
But there's some things you've just got to see

You see that I just don't give a damn about you
And I don't care how you're wasting your life
But you should try to remember the time
When everything wasn't quite paradise

I don't want to go down the same road as you
I've seen the mistakes you made
And I'm doing my best to avoid them
Your everything is wrong

It's a shame 'cause you could've been someone
Instead you're wearing the dissipate crown
And although you had everything chance in this world
There's no way you'll get out of this town

I think you know that now but you just can't accept
There's no way you'll survive on your own
And though you'll look back in time
And you'll think you're a winner
You'll find that you're always alone

I don't want to go down the same road as you
I've seen the mistakes you made
And I'm doing my best to avoid them
But now it seems to me that they're moving
Like spaceships and aeroplanes
Your everything is wrong

It's an illusion that you made for yourself
And nothing about it seems right
An illusion that you made for yourself
And you're not in a worthy position to give out advice

I don't want to go down the same road as you
I've seen the mistakes you made
And I'm doing my best to avoid them
But now it seems to me that they're moving
Like spaceships and aeroplanes
And all the time you'll see that
They're doing their best to avoid you
And everywhere you go
You'll feel like you're desperate and diligent
Your everything is wrong

Out of my Hands

(Dayve Dean)

You're never right where you wanted to be
It'll make you turn around backward but still you don't see
Your foolish thinking ain't working on me
Won't make it happen

You'll never walk down that road to your dream
Just so long as you stay where it's just out of reach
And nothing is as bad as it seems
I can always find you

You took the words right out of my mouth
You took the world right out of my hands

There's no way you could ever look back
Sometimes you'll think about running but you'll always attack
And I can't take the blame for the weight on your back
That's always been there

So you'll stay where it's just out of reach
Too many people to see when you're feeling so weak
Innocence was always so bleak
To be really happy

You took the words right out of my mouth
You took the world right out of my hands

Your insolent ways will not help you
So much of what you're saying's wrong
But they won't help if they can't hear you
They've kept you holding out for so long

You took the words right out of my mouth
You took my hands and you figured it out
You touched my world now there's no getting out
You took the world right out of my hands

Dream

(Dayve Dean)

I wonder if you know how I feel for you
I guess it's hard but I'm glad you understand
You make me laugh, you make me cry
And all the time I'm left behind
You told me about your love for someone else
And though I smile it burns inside
I know that I could never have you
I guess I'll dream over you

The days come and go, I don't feel alone
I'm the only one who won't let you go
They say I'm wrong, that I can't see
All that is gone when it's you and me
I feel like I never talk with you
The words come out but they mean so little
And now I'm worried that you'll go away
So I'll just dream over you

Your dream isn't what I want
Your life isn't what I've got
This dream isn't what I want
Cause I want you

You told me about your love for someone else
I guess I'll dream over you
So I'll just dream over you
Yeah, I still dream over you
I know that I can't have you
I guess I'll dream over you
Yeah, I still dream over you
I know that I can't have you
So I'll just dream over you
Dream over you
Dream...
