I thought I knew what I wanted,
How my life would be.
I dreamed about a future bright
In a land of you and me.
We'd walk that land, hand in hand,
And life would be all we had planned,
When all was said and done,
You and me, we'd be one.

Your smile would light my darkest day
Just like it should be.
And hand in hand, we'd run away
To the land of you and me.
But I'm just a humble man
And I built that land on shifting sands,
When all was said and done,
You were not the right one.

Now I thank the stars in the dark, dark night
That the land I built has gone from sight,
And things never happen the way they might
After all is said and done,
After all is said and done.

I thought we'd be together
Bound by a golden ring,
We'd walk off into the sunset
Never want for a thing.
But I'm just a humble man,
And I built my dreams on shifting sands
And when all was said and done,
We could not have won.

For when all was said and done,
You were not the right one.
After all was said and done.

After all is said and done

I really can't see where it's leading to,
This endless suspicion I get from you
Those looks that you give every word that I say,
The way you demand each detail of my day,
No, I can't see what you're leading to.

And I really can't see
If you loved me
You'd think I could be
Untrue

So what is this leading us to?

I don't really know how to cope with you
And this torture you're putting me through,
The way you lose it if someone says hi,
Acting so jealous, and I can't see why.
No, I can't seem to get through to you.
Can you really not see
The way you hurt me
Will push me away
From you?

That's what you're leading us to.

~

Don't push me away
Help me to stay
Don't push me away
From you

Please, what are you leading us to?

Where are you leading us to?

You said trust me, that's when I should have run.
Risking my heart's the last thing I should have done.
It's such a crying shame
When you see it as a game,
And when the dust is settled, the trust will all be gone.

When you smile that crooked smile, I don't know night from day,
You put my heart on trial and I want to run away.
You're messing with my mind,
When you're being so unkind,
Leaving me to wonder why I want you to stay.

Lying, fallen angel, lies upon your tongue,
Everything about you, is wrong.

You look like you're from heaven, you made your home in hell,
Bring misery into the world with all the lives you tell.
You took my tender trust
And ground it into dust,
Fallen, lying angel, you play your part so well.

Lying fallen angel, lies upon your tongue,
Everything about you, is wrong.

You cracked open my heart (This is gonna hurt)
Cut through the firewall (Are you just a flirt?)
Your malware installed. (Hacker, Hacker alert.)

Took command of my keys (Hacker alert!)
And brought me to my knees (Kneeling in the dirt)
Not a thing I could do (This is gonna hurt)
To stop you getting through. (Hacker, Hacker alert.)

Yet still I’m infected. (This is gonna hurt)
No longer secure (Are you just a flirt)
And there isn’t a cure. (Hacker, Hacker…)

A minute ago, you were there.
We had our whole lives to share.
The future looked so bright,
Everything was all right,
With love and laughter, and joy and song,
And in a minute, it was gone.

You were there, you were mine to hold,
Each day you were here was gold.
What should've been forever
Has turned into never,
The laughter crashed, and silenced the song,
And in that minute, you were gone.

A minute ago, we were together
A minute ago, life was forever.
A minute ago, my greatest treasure,
Here in my arms, forever, and ever, and ever...

A hollow wind now howls through me
Ice cold, where you used to be.
The sorrow breaks my heart,
Tears my soul apart,
The searing agony shoots me down
And I remember you are gone.

There was love and laughter, and joy and song.
And in a minute, it was gone.
In that lost minute, you were gone.

In a Minute

In the summer days with golden skies above me
You said that you loved me,
Do ya?

We danced away the night and rocked away the days and
You said that you loved me,
Do you love me?

Do you love me now the winter's here?
Can love still survive in the icy air?
Was it just the sun that made our hearts so clear?
Hold me, make me warm, drive away my fears.

Summer days and suntan, beach and fresh sea air were
Meant to make you love me
Do ya?

What about the memories, dreams we made together
You said that you loved me,
Was it just the hot sun made you love me?

Do you love me now the winter's here?
Can love still survive in the icy air?
Was it just the sun that made our hearts so clear?
Hold me, make me warm, drive away my fears.

Do ya?

Once more, baby, you're walking home alone.
Once more, baby, I see your bird has flown.
But you don't care,
You've been through it before.

And it really doesn't matter
What they think or say
You know that tomorrow's
Always a brand new day.
And another chance,
For a new romance.

Once more baby, I saw him, I heard him say goodbye.
I saw the pain across your face but I didn't see you cry.
Now you're walking with your head down, you need time to think,
But you're the one who told him, you don't expect a thing.
Nothing's what you hoped for, so nothing's what you get,
If there's a someone out there, you haven't found him yet.

And you don't care,
You've been through it before.

And it really doesn't matter,
What they say or do,
I see you've put your mask on
So they can't see you.
But it gets you down,
When you're brought to ground.

Now, once more, baby, I see you shut the door,
And once more baby, I can say for sure
It's a true art
The way you hide your heart.

Once more, baby, you're walking home alone.
Once more baby, the love you had has flown.
Once more, baby, you're losing once more.
Maybe the last time baby, baby, just once more.

Once More, Baby

Cool dude, iced love, you know what you're doing.
You're here and your sweet love is leading me to ruin.
I know your honey words don't mean what they say.
I know you'll have gone from here before the coming day
And I don't care.

When I get back to day-to-day, I'll leave all this behind.
You and I mean nothing, just a dark night out of time.
The pain will fade, it always does, the bruised heart always heals
And till it does, no-one will know the way it truly feels.
A smile can paper over cracks
Pride steps in to take the slack
Walk away, and don't look back,
And never care.

Cool dude, iced love, I know what you're doing.
Warm love to keep me safe from the storm that's brewing.
The kisses on my skin, the wanting in your eyes,
Are all part of the spell you conjure with your lies,
And I don't care.
