Verse 1
You place your hand on my thigh, it drove me wild inside
I thought we were on the same page, sparks between us flying high
Until you hit the brakes saying it was an innocent mistake
I thought we’d be hand in hand, but then you called me just a friend

Chorus
Trapped here in no man’s land no one can my call
Stranded in baron land no one to call my own
Searching for a way out, but I only find dead ends
Holding this candle for you only burns my hands

Verse 2
You’re torturing me I’ve been caught up in this spell you weave
But you don’t realise the power you hold over me
I hope that someday you’ll change your mind and walk in my direction
I can be standing right in front of you but you can’t see the truth

Chorus
Trapped here in no man’s land no one can my call
Stranded in baron land no one to call my own
Searching for a way out, but I only find dead ends
Holding this candle for you only burns my hands

Verse 3
As I walk in the room my eyes search for you
Finding you in another arms broke my heart in two
You think you’ve found your leading man
But I know he won’t even make it the end of act one

Chorus
Trapped here in no man’s land no one can my call
Stranded in baron land no one to call my own
Searching for a way out, but I only find dead ends
Holding this candle for you only burns my hands

Verse 4
Broken hearted you knock on my door
Even with your tear stained face you still look beautiful to me
As I sit there at your side I know you still don’t see
I could be the one you need but won’t take a chance on me

Chorus
Trapped here in no man’s land no one can my call
Stranded in baron land no one to call my own
Searching for a way out, but I only find dead ends
Holding this candle for you only burns my hands

Final Verse
Then one day I see you in the street as I pass by
Introduce you to the person who I was meant to meet
I’m no longer stranded, left alone outside in the cold
Broken free from no man’s land, I finally found the one

No Man’s Land

Verse 1
Everyone starts out with a blank page, story is written as we go
But with every dark twist and turn the page is creased and pieces torn
Some words can’t be erased they always will remain, etched into your skin
A crumpled piece of paper can’t be new again

Bridge
Words can cut real deep, weaponised they wound and bleed
Sticks and stones are thrown to bring others down on bended knee
But firing an arrow first doesn’t mean you’ll win the war
Bringing someone else down will never build you up

Chorus
Hold each other up, make each other smile
Become better, only say things that are worthwhile
Give each other strength, show each other love
Make this world all that we dream of, its starts by choosing your words

Verse 2
A vase sits on the counter from a distance you wouldn’t know
It’s been glued back together piece by piece painfully slow
And if you look real closely you can see the damage that has been done
It will never be the same again

Bridge
Words can cut real deep, weaponised they wound and bleed
Sticks and stones are thrown to bring others down on bended knee
But firing an arrow first doesn’t mean you’ll win the war
Bringing someone else down will never build you up

Chorus
Hold each other up, make each other smile
Become better, only say things that are worthwhile
Give each other strength, show each other love
Make this world all that we dream of, its starts by choosing your words

Verse 3
A doll left out in the rain, dress is torn and covered in stains
Her features they are fading minute by minute and day by day
She taken back inside but the damage will remain
She’ll never be brand new again

Bridge
Words can cut real deep, weaponised they wound and bleed
Sticks and stones are thrown to bring others down on bended knee
But firing an arrow first doesn’t mean you’ll win the war
Bringing someone else down will never build you up

Chorus
Hold each other up, make each other smile
Become better, only say things that are worthwhile
Give each other strength, show each other love
Make this world all that we dream of, its starts by choosing your words

Verse 4
And with every heartbeat, show the world who you can be
Share kindness and love and walk in the light
Don’t be tempted by the shadows that try to pull you in
Think twice before you speak out of turn

Bridge
Words can cut real deep, weaponised they wound and bleed
Sticks and stones are thrown to bring others down on bended knee
But firing an arrow first doesn’t mean you’ll win the war
Bringing someone else down will never build you up

Become better, only say things that are worthwhile
Give each other strength, show each other love
Make this world all that we dream of, its starts by choosing your words

Choosing Your Words

Verse 1
You gave me roses on our very first date
Twelve long stemmed promises you made to me that day
Said there’s a flower for each time I crossed your mind
Hand in hand you walked me home and gave me a kiss goodnight

Chorus
And with a new day dawning I found to my surprise
You’d left flowers, flowers on my window sill
Brightened my morning and gave me a thrill
Made my heart smile knowing I’d been on your mind
All because of those flowers, flowers on my window sill

Verse 2
You picked me tulips when we walked in the park
We took a boat out and you fell in the pond
Reaching out I tried to pull you back in but the boat rocked to and fro
You dragged us both in and I laughed ‘til tears streamed from my eyes

Chorus
And with a new day dawning I found to my surprise
You’d left flowers, flowers on my window sill
Brightened my morning and gave me a thrill
Made my heart smile knowing I’d been on your mind
All because of those flowers, flowers on my window sill

Verse 3
You chose my bouquet I held walking down the aisle
Yellow sunflowers chased the sun, led me to you, right by your side
Holding your hand I knew beyond any doubt
Vows everlasting, intertwined with love for the rest of our lives

Chorus
And with a new day dawning I found to my surprise
You’d left flowers, flowers on our window sill
Brightened my morning and gave me a thrill
Made my heart smile knowing I’d been on your mind
All because of those flowers, flowers on our window sill

Bridge
When you want to make me laugh, a tulip is the only choice
When you want to reminisce, a red rose reminds me of our first kiss
When you want to be romantic, a sunflower reminds me our vows
And each flower holds a memory, tells a story of who we are

Final Verse
And still even now when we’re old and grey
You still surprise me with the dawning of a brand new day
With flowers, flowers on our window sill
Brightened each day, made us both smile
All because of you and those flowers, flowers on our window sill

Flowers On My Window Sill

Verse 1
She cherished every moment that she spent with you
Even when the sleepless nights took their toll
From your first steps to your first words
You always kept her on her toes

Chorus
But what you don’t see
Are the sacrifices she makes to keep that smile upon your face
Mistakes she’s made or the lesson’s learned the hard way
And when you’re crying she’s holding back her tears to dry your eyes
But you’ll never know, she’ll keep you blind to all the sorrow

Verse 2
On your first day of school she was brave for you
Pulled you in real tight like she was kissing you goodnight
You still clung to her leg and begged her to stay
Yet it wasn’t long before you didn’t look back to wave goodbye

Chorus
But what you don’t see
Are the sacrifices she makes to keep that smile upon your face
Mistakes she’s made or the lesson’s learned the hard way
And when you’re crying she’s holding back her tears to dry your eyes
But you’ll never know, she’ll keep you blind to all the sorrow

Verse 3
There are times when you drove her mad
She’d take away your toys and send you to bed
When you’re tucked up asleep and down for the night
She’s still misses you, you’re still on her mind

Chorus
But what you don’t see
Are the sacrifices she makes to keep that smile upon your face
Mistakes she’s made or the lesson’s learned the hard way
And when you’re crying she’s holding back her tears to dry your eyes
But you’ll never know, she’ll keep you blind to all the sorrow

Final Verse
She’s been your shield and sword since you were born
Exhausted and injured she would still carry on
She’ll pull you back up when you’re knocked down
To turn your world back up the right way around

Chorus
But what you don’t see
Are the sacrifices she makes to keep that smile upon your face
Mistakes she’s made or the lesson’s learned the hard way
And when you’re crying she’s holding back her tears to dry your eyes
But you’ll never know, she’ll keep you blind to all the sorrow

What You Don’t See

Verse 1
Could tell you were different, no games or chat up lines
We were both nervous, awkward and kind of shy
But you kept your cards too close to your chest
I couldn’t sneak a peek and I couldn’t read your poker face

Chorus
Find the courage and find the strength
To show your heart, reveal your hand
To take a leap and take a chance
So I can see, the man you could be

Verse 2
Like a fire burning low, enough warmth but no flames before my eyes
I can see you’re holding back, I don’t know why, unsure if I should ask
So many questions marks and no answers given
Why won’t you show me who you are? Why won’t you let me in?

Chorus
Find the courage and find the strength
To show your heart, reveal your hand
To take a leap and take a chance
So I can see, the man you could be

Verse 3
I wish I could amplify the echo of what’s going on inside your mind
You walk with me but I still feel like I’m steps behind
Your walls are still high and I can’t climb them alone
Shut out in the cold but it’s not warmer where you are

Chorus
Find the courage and find the strength
To show your heart, reveal your hand
To take a leap and take a chance
So I can see, the man you could be

Bridge
Maybe your hearts been broken, are you keeping it safe?
Maybe your mind is a battlefield between love and hate
Maybe you don’t know how to tell me how you really feel
But I sense we are the missing pieces, we’ve been looking for

Chorus
Find the courage and find the strength
To show your heart, reveal your hand
To take a leap and take a chance
So I can see, so you can finally show me, truly, the man you could be

The Man You Could Be

Verse 1
A flightless bird she fell from high above
With a guiding light she landed softly to the ground
She came to earth to save another soul
Pass on her wings to someone, no longer meant for this world

Chorus
She’s a fallen angel, she’ll find you when you need her most
Listen real closely she’ll answer your call
She’s the northern star, she’ll guide you to the sky
She’s our fallen angel, sent by the grace of God

Verse 2
She walks amongst us an angel in disguise
Acts of kindness she leaves, as she passes by
She seen so many faces, changed their tears to smiles
Some think she’s stolen futures but even she can’t change the hands of time

Chorus
She’s a fallen angel, she’ll find you when you need her most
Listen real closely she’ll answer your call
She’s the northern star, she’ll guide you to the sky
She’s our fallen angel, sent by the grace of God

Verse 3
She takes the pain that others face
Holds their hand and will never let go
She’s paid the price which others can’t pay
Strong and brave she’ll never tires, strives to save more souls each day

Bridge
She was once like you and I, lived a long and happy life
Until an angel greeted her one day
She knew the journey was over and a new one was about to begin
Reaching out she grabbed both his hands and she would do it all over again

Chorus
She’s a fallen angel, she’ll find you when you need her the most
Listen real closely she’ll answer your call you’ll never be alone
She’s the northern star, she’ll guide you to the sky
She’s our fallen angel, our fallen angel,
Sent to save us all

Fallen Angel

Verse 1
He’s been paying the price since the day he was born
As a baby he was left alone in a basket at a closed door
With no explanation he’s never known unconditional love
Lived at lots of addresses but never had a place to call home

Chorus
They say he’s a failure, but truth is we failed him
They call him a quitter, but truth is we quit on him
They call him bad news, but he is just misunderstood
They call him a lost cause, but he’s just our lost boy

Verse 2
He learned how to fend for himself from a young age
Always covered in bruises due to boys who called him names
The orphan boy that’s all they could see
Then one night he left when everyone was fast asleep

Chorus
They say he’s a failure, but truth is we failed him
They call him a quitter, but truth is we quit on him
They call him bad news, but he is just misunderstood
They call him a lost cause, but he’s just our lost boy

Verse 3
He sits bundled up on the street late at night
Howling wind teases the flame of his candlelight
No one came looking for him or mentioned his name again
Just another empty bed now sleeps another boy like him

Chorus
They say he’s a failure, but truth is we failed him
They call him a quitter, but truth is we quit on him
They call him bad news, but he is just misunderstood
They call him a lost cause, but he’s just our lost boy

Verse 4
People ignore him as they walk on lost in their own lives
Don’t think of him as a poor soul who might not survive
Thinks he deserves it or brought it upon himself
But he’s not guilty even though he is condemned

Chorus
They say he’s a failure, but truth is we failed him
They call him a quitter, but truth is we quit on him
They call him bad news, but he is just misunderstood
They call him a lost cause, but he’s just our lost boy

Verse 5
His footprints in the snow begin to fade
Proof of his existence vanished and gone away
Never known love since he stepped into this world
But now he walks with angels and finally knows his worth

Bridge
It was never his fault he never choose to be left behind
And now he’s gone some say good riddance but they never realised
He could’ve changed the world if he’d only been shown love instead of hate
If he’d been found instead of lost along the way

Final Verse
They said he was a failure, but the truth was we failed him
They called him a quitter, but the truth was we quit on him
They called him bad news, but he was just misunderstood
They called him a lost cause, but he was our, he was our lost boy

Lost Boy

Verse 1
They say out of sight is out of mind
But when it comes to you, I know that isn’t right
I never chose to leave you, still long to be by your side
Might not be there in body, but I am there in mind

Chorus
It’s like sailing across the desert or flying in the sea
People they don’t understand, what you mean to me
Miles apart or side by side our love will never change
And my desert wings will carry me home to you

Verse 2
I’m the wanderer I never sought to be
Up in the sky and over the seas
Writing letters with post marks from everywhere I’ve been
Sealed with a kiss and promises of things we will do

Chorus
It’s like sailing across the desert or flying in the sea
People they don’t understand, what you mean to me
Miles apart or side by side our love will never change
And my desert wings will carry me home to you

Verse 3
You’re the beginning and the end of each letter that I send
Raising the white flag I surrender myself to you
You’re the guiding northern star, I’ll follow wherever you are
I’m coming home to you, I promise you

Chorus
It’s like sailing across the desert or flying in the sea
People they don’t understand, what you mean to me
Miles apart or side by side our love will never change
And my desert wings will carry me home to you

Verse 4
Reading your tear stained letters
Picturing you there by my side
The battle is over and the war has been won
The last letters sent, I’m on my way back home

Chorus
It’s like sailing across the desert or flying in the sea
People they don’t understand, what you mean to me
Miles apart or side by side our love will never change
And my desert wings will carry me home to you

Verse 1
Everyone starts out with a blank page, story is written as we go
But with every dark twist and turn the page is creased and pieces torn
Some words can’t be erased they always will remain, etched into your skin
A crumpled piece of paper can’t be new again

Bridge
Words can cut real deep, weaponised they wound and bleed
Sticks and stones are thrown to bring others down on bended knee
But firing an arrow first doesn’t mean you’ll win the war
Bringing someone else down will never build you up

Hold each other up, make each other smile
Become better, only say things that are worthwhile
Give each other strength, show each other love
Make this world all that we dream of, its starts by choosing your words

A vase sits on the counter from a distance you wouldn’t know
It’s been glued back together piece by piece painfully slow
And if you look real closely you can see the damage that has been done

Twelve long stemmed promises you made to me that day
Said there’s a flower for each time I crossed your mind

But what you don’t see
Are the sacrifices she makes to keep that smile upon your face
Mistakes she’s made or the lesson’s learned the hard way
And when you’re crying she’s holding back her tears to dry your eyes
But you’ll never know, she’ll keep you blind to all the sorrow

Verse 3
There are times when you drove her mad
She’d take away your toys and send you to bed
When you’re tucked up asleep and down for the night
She’s still misses you, you’re still on her mind

Chorus
But what you don’t see
Are the sacrifices she makes to keep that smile upon your face
Mistakes she’s made or the lesson’s learned the hard way
And when you’re crying she’s holding back her tears to dry your eyes
But you’ll never know, she’ll keep you blind to all the sorrow

Final Verse
She’s been your shield and sword since you were born
Exhausted and injured she would still carry on
She’ll pull you back up when you’re knocked down
To turn your world back up the right way around

Chorus
But what you don’t see
Are the sacrifices she makes to keep that smile upon your face
Mistakes she’s made or the lesson’s learned the hard way
And when you’re crying she’s holding back her tears to dry your eyes
But you’ll never know, she’ll keep you blind to all the sorrow

What You Don’t See

Verse 1
Could tell you were different, no games or chat up lines
We were both nervous, awkward and kind of shy
But you kept your cards too close to your chest
I couldn’t sneak a peek and I couldn’t read your poker face

Chorus
Find the courage and find the strength
To show your heart, reveal your hand
To take a leap and take a chance
So I can see, the man you could be

Verse 2
Like a fire burning low, enough warmth but no flames before my eyes
I can see you’re holding back, I don’t know why, unsure if I should ask
So many questions marks and no answers given
Why won’t you show me who you are? Why won’t you let me in?

Chorus
Find the courage and find the strength
To show your heart, reveal your hand
To take a leap and take a chance
So I can see, the man you could be

Verse 3
I wish I could amplify the echo of what’s going on inside your mind
You walk with me but I still feel like I’m steps behind
Your walls are still high and I can’t climb them alone
Shut out in the cold but it’s not warmer where you are

Chorus
Find the courage and find the strength
To show your heart, reveal your hand
To take a leap and take a chance
So I can see, the man you could be

Bridge
Maybe your hearts been broken, are you keeping it safe?
Maybe your mind is a battlefield between love and hate
Maybe you don’t know how to tell me how you really feel
But I sense we are the missing pieces, we’ve been looking for

Chorus
Find the courage and find the strength
To show your heart, reveal your hand
To take a leap and take a chance
So I can see, so you can finally show me, truly, the man you could be

The Man You Could Be

Verse 1
A flightless bird she fell from high above
With a guiding light she landed softly to the ground
She came to earth to save another soul
Pass on her wings to someone, no longer meant for this world

Chorus
She’s a fallen angel, she’ll find you when you need her most
Listen real closely she’ll answer your call
She’s the northern star, she’ll guide you to the sky
She’s our fallen angel, sent by the grace of God

Verse 2
She walks amongst us an angel in disguise
Acts of kindness she leaves, as she passes by
She seen so many faces, changed their tears to smiles
Some think she’s stolen futures but even she can’t change the hands of time

Chorus
She’s a fallen angel, she’ll find you when you need her most
Listen real closely she’ll answer your call
She’s the northern star, she’ll guide you to the sky
She’s our fallen angel, sent by the grace of God

Verse 3
She takes the pain that others face
Holds their hand and will never let go
She’s paid the price which others can’t pay
Strong and brave she’ll never tires, strives to save more souls each day

Bridge
She was once like you and I, lived a long and happy life
Until an angel greeted her one day
She knew the journey was over and a new one was about to begin
Reaching out she grabbed both his hands and she would do it all over again

Chorus
She’s a fallen angel, she’ll find you when you need her the most
Listen real closely she’ll answer your call you’ll never be alone
She’s the northern star, she’ll guide you to the sky
She’s our fallen angel, our fallen angel,
Sent to save us all

Fallen Angel


About Me

Bio

Hello, I'm a lyricist who's been writing for many years who loves to tell a story.

I'm open to a collaboration so feel free to send me a message.

If you are interested in a lyric but don't think it fits into the genre I've selected then please get in touch as I'm sure we can come to an arrangement. This also applies to the price, I'm open to negotiate.

CV/History

Music is something that has always been a constant in my life and so is writing. I love expressing myself and creating stories and characters. I draw on personal experiences but I also have ideas that are very random and surprise even me.

Just now I feel like my lyrics could be a good starting point. Just now they are only the heartbeat of the song but it's far from being truly alive but I'm hoping that on here they might get the jumpstart that they could use.
