No More Apologies Lyrics

Start

I... I can't see why
I'm biding my time wondering why
I still can't see why
The harder I try
I'm unsatisfied

You make me see that
That I should be
Thinking much more positively
When I ask why
You just reply

That this is only the start

I... I realize
That my life
It's not even mine
If what I do is worthwhile

And now it feels that there's so much energy
And you'll never know how good it feels to be
Back on form
Back in the front

(chorus)

And I'm never looking back again
I am never going back again
This is this is this is
Only the start
Only the start
Only the start

Into The Light

I can feel something running in my veins
I cannot feel pain
Clogging up my arteries
Straight into my heart
Causing it to beat
Faster than the speed
Of an engine screaming

Making me proud
Making me brave
There's nothing I can do
Even if it means
Losing you
I'm getting closer, closer
I can feel it
Brighter, brighter
I can see
I'm going into
I'm going into the light
I'm going into
I'm going into the light

Now I am talking
Talking to the Lord
I do not feel bored
I feel nothing
Can hurt me anymore
Now I believe
I am not deceiving you
I am just leaving

(chorus)

You know I hate to say, I hate to say
I hate to say goodbye
Don't cry
I hate to see, I hate to see
I hate to see you cry
So smile
I love it when, I love it when
I love it when you smile

I'm going into
I'm going into the light
I'm going into
I'm going into the light
I'm going into
I'm going into the light

Cry Easily

Dress me up
Take me out
I'm everything
To everyone
I am fun
I am strong
I'm someone
Who's never wrong

I will always be around when
When you need me
To calm you down
What about me
The way I feel
Do you stop to think
You don't know me
You don't know me
You don't know me

Cos I cry easily
I cry usually
When I'm on my own
I cry easily

When I'm on my own
If you take
Take the time
Time to look
To look behind
This disguise
You will find
You will not
Believe your eyes

I am not what
I appear to be
Do you want me
Do you still love me
Still adore me
Will I end up boring
You don't know me
You don't know me
You don't know me

(chorus)

After all this time you think you'd know me
All this time you think you'd know me
All this time you think you'd know me
All this time you still don't know
You don't know me
You don't know me
You don't know me

(chorus)

No More Apologies

I'm sick and tired
Of making apologies
I'm sick and tired
Of making excuses for me

If I said it I must have meant it
If I felt it I must have believed
No more apologies
From me
No more "Sorry"s
From me
No more "I used to be"s
No more apologies

I'm sick and tired
Of making apologies
I'm sick and tired
Of waking feeling guilty

(chorus)

No more apologies
From me
No more "Sorry"s
From me
No more "I used to be"s
No more apologies

My Sweet Life

The days, they seem endless
You think of what you should and could have done
You wonder if it's too late to try again

If you ever
If you ever get one chance
You should grab it
You should grab it with both hands

And now the time keeps passing
Much faster than you thought possible
So

(chorus)

So that you

Can hold on to
Your sweet life

And now you're getting older
You're wearing the good years very well
But you know you
You know you have had your chance
And you've watched it
Slipping right out of your hands

Now that you
Can't hold on to
Your sweet life
It slipped right out of your hands
And now you want one more chance

(chorus X4)

Sisters Song

This is a song for her
My sister
All the years I've known her
I don't know her
I did when we were younger
I knew her
But as we get older
We're no closer
Now I wonder is it
The distance
Or is it
Our indiffernce

I know
I could have been more
I know I should have been more
To her
Sister

I have often thought
Of helping
That is just to ease this
Guilty feeling
I have seldom done
Anything
To try and help this situation
Maybe we are
Too different
Are we unalike
Or unwilling

(chorus)

Twist And Squeeze

I heard you that my life would be over
When I'm 30
Did you hope I'd fail
And I'd be unlucky

And you're only happy in begrudgery
Yes, you're only happy in jealousy
Did I see you smile
As you twist the knife
As you squeeze the life
As you're twisting the knife
On yourself

You would always hang with the hard men
When you were younger
An impressionable fool they were your friends then
But now you're older

(chorus)

You, you, you were the last to say die
You, you, you spend your time wondering why
You, you, you used to be so full of life

(chorus)

Love Is...

If I were rain
You could watch the colours bleed
If I were time
We could go to where we're happy
If I were tease
Every evening we'd die laughing

I am love
I am love
Love is not not good enough (love is..)
Love is not not good enough (love is..)
Love is not not good enough (love is..)
Love never is

If I were words
I would turn a phrase of you
If I were star
The sky-like eye would open
If I were the sea
A wave from you might drown me

(chorus)

Love, love is everywhere
Every day
Every way
She's got a mind of her own
Love is bigger than me
Bigger than you so
Just let in in and stop thinking to yourself that

(chorus)

Without Dreams

I was only joking when
When I said I want for nothing
Are you only laughing because
You think I am serious

I am just like everyone
Who wants to be
Someone they can never be
Someone so that eveyone will want to be like me
Someone who while swimming in the sea
Comes out dripping money
An entourage of hangers-on waiting for me

Without dreams you might as well
You might as well just lie down
Without dreams you might as well
You might as well just lie down

Close your eyes and wish for something
I hope your wish will be good to you
As you're only sleeping lightly
I'll be careful not to wake you
As you dream your dreams you get to realize your fantasies
And that's what helps to keep you alive
And helps you to survive
And keep a youthful look in your eye
As you try to get by and make something of your life

(chorus x2)

And die

Just Because

Just because my world is different to yours
My hopes and dreams are just what they should be
Just becasue my thoughts are different to yours
I can hear you
Talk about me
Laughing at me
I have nothing to be ashamed of

Just because my love is difficult for you
How long will it take
For you to understand me
Just because your life is uninspired to me
You won't hear me
Talk about you
Laughing at you
I have nothing to be ashamed of

Ashamed of
Ashamed of

I Can't Change

I am lost
I have found
When you're too far underground
That you would reappear
If things were not so unclear

Circles do what they're supposed to
They go round when everything else seems to be
Working its way back down underground

I can't change
I can't change
I can't change
You know I can't change
I can't change (you know I don't want to)
I can't change (why should I have to)
I can't change (why do you want me to)

I need light
I need love
I have to be understood
I need you to reassure me all that I feel is insecure

Roses do what they're supposed to
They grow wild when they are left untouched by hands
Who have to shake them
Who have to make them unnatural

(chorus)

You know I've tried before
But it couldn't work because you expect too much of me
Can't you see
I'll never

Clotheshorse

You're a clotheshorse
You were good once
God loves you
God knows I do
And you've tried hard
And I've seen you cry
And I've wondered why
I'm watching you die

Now the beauty's gone
And so is the fun
What's the point in going on
Absolutely none

You're a clotheshorse
You were flawless
Sheer perfection
You were faultless
For your thinking
That this could last
But time moves so fast
And now yours has passed

(chorus)

But you'll try
Yes you'll try
And you'll break your heart
For what you call art
But it will mend
As soon as you
Can admit that all good things
Things must end
And end they do
There's nothing you can do
You must give in graciously
Before everybody sees

(chorus)

My Mind

My mind is a delicate thing
My mind is a delicate thing
And it's all fucked up on you
My mind is a sensuous thing
My mind is a sensuous thing
And it's all fucked up on you
So please stop torturing me
My mind is a sensitive thing
My mind is a sensitive thing
And it's all fucked up on you
My mind is a curious thing
My mind is a curious thing
And it's all fucked up on you
So please stop torturing me
So please stop torturing me
So please stop torturing me

Broken

I have been unlucky in love
I have loved so many times
Sometime it feels like there is Heaven
Sometimes it seems there's only Hell

All I want is all there is
And I won't take less
All I know is I won't be broken

I have found someone to love
Making my life seem complete
Sometimes it gets so I can taste it
Sometimes the taste gets too sweet
I don't know what I would do if it were untrue
All I know... I won't be broken

A Happy Ending

As the World turns around
I love you
There's not a sound
I love you
I have found
That you can do
Most anything you put your mind to
I have found
That there's a happy ending
A happy ending
A happy ending
Sometimes this World can be so cruel
Sometimes this World can be so cool
