Big thanks to Melinda, Julee and Jane for providing these lyrics. You girls rock!

Satellites

Someone give me hope
Something I can see
Something I can touch
Something I can breathe

Someone give me heart
Something I can beat
Something I can hear
Something I can hold

Give me all your satellites and all your stunted cigarettes
Give me life and give death and give me all your worry lines
Give me ups and give me downs, it don’t matter how you do
As long as you believe in me and you

Does the home fire burn.
Do you think it’s cold now.
Do you think it’s cooled down.
Will you write it off now?

Give me all your satellites and all your stunted cigarettes
Give me life and me death and give me all your worry lines
Give me ups and give me downs, it don’t matter how you do
As long as you believe in me and you

Someone give me hope
Something I can see
Something I can breathe

Bet On You

You dealt me hope when my cards were stacked
I needed aces you gave me jack
Now girl, since you came along
Since you came along
It all went so wrong
Now go

You built me up when the chips were down
You spun the wheel all the way round
Now girl, since you came along
Since you came along
It all went so wrong
Now go

I took a chance on you
And this is what I get
Nothing but heartache, pain and regret
I put it all on you
And this is how I lose
Lovin’ was a gamble when I bet on you
Lovin’ was a gamble when I bet…
I bet on you

You pushed the button and matched all three
Lady luck she cheated on me
Now girl, since you came along
Since you came along
It all went so wrong
Now go

I took a chance on you
And this is what I get
Nothing but heartache, pain and regret
I put it all on you
And this is how I lose
Lovin’ was a gamble when I bet on you

You smelt of roses even though you’re full of it
I know that perfume was a scent that would not quit

I took a chance on you
And this is what I get
Nothing but heartache, pain and regret
I put it all on you
And this is how I lose
Lovin’ was a gamble when I bet on you

I bet on you
It’s win or lose
I bet on you
And now I’m a fool

I took a chance on you
And this is what I get
Nothing but heartache, pain and regret
I put it all on you
And this is how I lose
Lovin’ was a gamble when I bet on you
Lovin’ was a gamble when I bet…
I bet on you

Love & War

You used to say I was your warrior,
and that my armor was your barrier
when I would hear the sound of your alarm,
I’d take a bullet keep you safe from harm.

But now your saying that it’s over,
and you don’t want me as your soldier.
How can you leave me on the battlefield,
without a weapon or without a shield.

For tonight I’ll fight for you,
I’ll wage a war for two.
I’ll wage a war with the world till there’s nothing left to lose.
I’ll wage a war with the world till there’s nothing left to prove.

Because all, all’s fair, in love, in love and war.
I said all, all’s fair in love, in love and war.

You used to say I was your white knight,
and we would ride into the twilight,
and there would always be a me and you.
In a world that was built for two,
and now you’re saying that it’s over,
I can’t accept we won’t recover

It’s not a question of black and white,
with me and you it was always right.

For tonight I’ll fight for you
I’ll wage a war with the world till there’s nothing left to lose
I’ll wage a war with the world till there’s nothing left to prove
Because all, all’s fair in love, in love and war.

I said all, all’s fair in love, in love and war.
I said all, all’s fair in love, in love and war.
I say all, all’s fair in love, in love and war.

I’ll wage a war with the world till there’s nothing left to lose
I’ll wage a war with the world till there’s nothing left to prove
Ohh, ohh
Because all, all’s fair in love, in love and war.
I said all, all’s fair in love, in love and war.
Cuz all, all’s fair, in love, in love and war.

Crash & Burn

I believed I could fly, pluck the stars from the sky
I believed I would learn
But we live and we learn when we crash and burn
Every fight I was in, I believed I could win
I believed I would learn
But we live and we learn when we crash and burn
When I’m falling, you pick me off the ground
When I’m crawling, from the wreck you pull me out
Oh yeh we live and we learn, we crash and we burn,
I believed I could run, before hearing the gun
Yes, there is no return
But we live and we learn when we crash and burn
Better to learn the lessons before you die Better to learn the lessons than not try

See those fireballs rain down from the sky? Each mistake I make cuts off my high!

Hold Me There

Sometimes
the weather takes a turn
and darkens the sky
try to find the shelter
to keep ourselves dry
sometimes

All I ever really wanted was to share my rainy days with someone on the inside
Sometimes

When you hold me there,
the sinners and the saints collide,
And I’m aware,
I’m inside breathing out,
and nothing can compare,
to the love we share
When you hold me there
This life, the path we choose to travel, offers some strife, I’m standing on a cross road, I hope I choose right, sometimes
Held fast, to what I thought I needed, no it won’t last, our hopes and dreams explode when there’s a bomb blast, sometimes

True Love’s Arrow

V1 You got a good aim
Took the shot, I didn’t know where it came from,
Until I felt pain, hit the spot, knock the wind outta me

V2 And now I’m crawling
And I need, a place where I can recover,
My pulse is fading, I can’t breathe and I bleed because

C1 True love’s arrow,
kiss my lips, don’t me let go
True love’s arrow,
pierce my heart
and let the blood flow
Cupid’s arrow,
I’m on love’s death row

V3 Now I’m calling,
for reprieve,
Calling
My faith is failing,
My belief,
Falling
And when it’s over,
on my knees,
I will grieve because

Home

Home is where you left me.
Bent and broke in misery
Oh (skip) I just can’t get a grip without you here
Coz every time I get hold you disappear

I’m afraid to turn around for every noise and every sound
Coz I’ll lose you all (breath) over again (breath)
This old house is not a home without you in (cracked)

These four walls are crumbling,
these four walls are caving in,
And the truth is that I am dying without you here
And the lie is that I’m fine without you near

I sit and wonder why, no matter how I try
To build these walls back up again,
That this old house is not a home without you in

Time is all you left me,(breath)
it’s funny how time’s what’s slowly killing me
Oh (skip) I tried to keep a fire burning tall
So I can dance with your shadow on the wall

At a certain time of day (breath)
the sunlight draws your face
But the night time takes you back again
This old house is not a home without you in

Everything we’ve ever known, is everything we’ve set in stone

And I’m chasing after shadows in this place
I draw a picture your face,
in the dust that fills this place
I draw a curtain to blind the memory of face
And the hope can’t get a grip without you here
And the fear has taken hold without you near
As I sit here all alone, in a house that’s not a home
For every room that you’ve been in,
I’ll build these walls back up again

Little highs and bigger lows,
why you left me,
Heaven knows.
Lights gone out, I’m left alone.
This old house is not a home.
This old house is not a home without you in
I sit and wonder why, no matter how I try

Shelter

Don’t you know outside
see you in the sky
in a single night

Your star shines bright
I move towards your light

From the rain looking for shelter
Can you be my shelter from the storm
Can you be the roof over my head
to keep me warm
Will you be my shelter from the storm
Take me into your arms until the dawn

Don’t you know your light
see it in your eyes
in a single night
Your love is true

I’ve put my faith in you
Coming out in the dark
Coming in from the cold
Givin’ me shelter

From the rain looking for shelter
Can you be my shelter from the storm
Can you be the roof over my head
to keep me warm
Will you be my shelter from the storm
Take me into your arms until the dawn

Let me stay here tonight
Let me see your eyes
Let me stay with you just for the night
Let me lay by your side and keep you warm

From the rain looking for shelter
Let me be your shelter from the storm
I can be the roof over your head
to keep you warm
Let me be your shelter from the storm
Take you into my arms until the dawn

Fall From Grace

Turn off the roar of the headlight cuz I can’t hear it anymore.
Cross out the meaning for the last time cuz I can’t read it anymore

From zero to hero
Go as far as we go

Tears fall down stainin’ my face
Rain and clouds fall from grace
Fall from grace
Fall from grace

Give my dreams to the next man
Coz I don’t need ‘em any more
Circle the arrow with your left hand
Coz I don’t need ‘em any more

From zero to hero
Go as far as we go

Tears fall down stainin’ my face
Rain and clouds fall from grace
Fall from grace
Fall from grace

Tears fall down stainin’ my face
Rain and clouds fall from grace
Fall from grace
Fall from grace

Fall from grace…
