Track Name: Day Became You
DAY BECAME YOU Ian Roland 31/05/2016

INTRO
HOT COALS WERE IN YOUR EYES, BURNING OUT ALL GOODBYES
AND THE DAY BECAME YOU

VERSE 1
SPIN AROUND ONE MORE TIME, YOU CAUGHT THE LIGHT FROM THE FIRE
TOOK THE FLAME AWAY WITH YOU, MADE THE TRUTH BE YOU
HOT COALS WERE IN YOUR EYES, BURNING OUT ALL GOODBYES
AND MY DAY BECAME YOU.
AND THOSE MEALY WORDS, THE ONES WE THOUGHT WE BARELY HEARD
THE HIDDEN THREATS AND OPEN SORES, WOUNDS WE STRUGGLE TO IGNORE.
I SAT DOWN, COULDN’T THINK, TURNED TO YOU AND SAW YOU BLINK
AND MY DAY BECAME YOU.

CHORUS
YOU MOUTHED SOME WORDS, I COULDN’T HEAR
YOU MOUTHED SOME MORE, I COULDN’T HEAR
YOU TOOK MY HAND, I COULDN’T FEEL
THERE WAS A DEATH ABOUT ME STILL.
YOUR EYES SAID SOMETHING TO MY HEAD
BREATHE IN, BREATHE OUT, BREATHE IN YOU SAID
I REACHED UP AND CAUGHT YOUR HAND
AND MY DAY BECAME YOU, (THE) DAY BECAME YOU

VERSE 2
SURROUNDED BY THE TAKE, TAKE, TAKE
DIDN’T UNDERSTAND, THAT’S MY MISTAKE
SHOULD HAVE FORESEEN THE ENSUING DISASTER, MY LEG IN PLASTER
SAW THE SUNLIGHT CATCH YOUR HAIR, AS I WAS FALLING DOWN THE STAIRS, AND MY DAY BECAME YOU.
(AND) THE UNDERCURRENT DRAGGED, IT PUSHED FORWARD, I PUSHED BACK
AND ALL THOSE HATEFUL THINGS, BEGAN TO GATHER IN A RING
JUST FOR A MOMENT I THOUGHT I SAW, YOU AND ME WALK THROUGH A DOOR, AND THE DAY BECAME YOU

CHORUS
INSTRUMENTAL VERSE, CHORUS
Track Name: Shooting Star
SHOOTING STAR Ian Roland 12/08/2013

VERSE 1
SHOOTING STAR HIT THE SEA
WHEN ANNIE HEARD THE VOICE THAT SAID HE LOVED HER
A MILLION HEARTS ROSE TO SEE
LOVE’S HUSHED FIRST KISS FOR ANNIE
THE CURTAIN CALL WAS OVER, PERFORMANCE ALL LAID BARE
ANNIE STOOD UP SMILING, HER SPIRIT STANDING THERE
THE LIGHTS OF LOVE AND LAUGHTER, ALL CAME RUSHING BACK
THE LIGHTS OF LOVE AND LAUGHTER, ALL CAME RUSHING…

CHORUS
ANNIE KEEP THE COLD OUTSIDE
AND WARM OUR HEARTS SO LOVE WON’T DIE
KEEP YOUR HEAD SO YOU KNOW BEST
WHAT LOVE CAN DO
WHAT LOVE CAN DO

VERSE 2
FEAR BOUNCED OFF THE MOON
WHEN ANNIE FELL A HUNDRED FEET FROM THE HIGH WIRE
THE TEARS OF THE LOVE-STRUCK FILLED THE ROOM
SEEING ANNIE CAUGHT THROUGH FIRE
EACH GASP LET OUT DISASTER,
EACH SCREAM EXPOSED DESPAIR
EACH FALLING MOMENT THEREAFTER FILLED THE LIVING AIR
ARMS REACHED OUT TO CATCH HER, ‘COS LOVE WILL NEVER END
HOPE FOREVER AFTER GOT TO ANNIE…

CHORUS
OUTRO

SHOOTING STAR HIT THE SEA
WHEN ANNIE HEARD THE VOICE THAT SAID HE LOVED HER
AND THE LIGHTS OF LOVE AND LAUGHTER,
ALL CAME RUSHING BACK
THE LIGHTS OF LOVE AND LAUGHTER, ALL CAME RUSHING BACK
Track Name: Gravity Inside
GRAVITY INSIDE Ian Roland 19/07/2016

VERSE 1
THERE’S A GRAVITY INSIDE, PULL ME UP DON’T LET IT SLIDE
LET THE ASTRONAUT IN VIEW, BE ON A MISSION TO SEE IT THROUGH
‘COS THE GRAVITY INSIDE, CAN MAKE A BLACK HOLE OPEN WIDE
FIND ME SOME SPACE, FIND ME SOME TIME
FIND ME SOME SPACE, FIND ME SOME TIME
AS EVERY SINGLE ORBIT GOES, OUTER SPACE CAN TAKE ITS TOLL

VERSE 2
SHUTTLE IN, SHUTTLE OUT, WALKING IN SPACE IS VERY LOUD
LITTLE TIME TO SIT AND PONDER, SUCK IT DRY ‘COS IT’S EASY TO SQUANDER
EVERY LITTLE PIECE OF ME THAT’S HERE
DANCES WITH YOU IN OUR ATMOSPHERE
FIND ME SOME SPACE, FIND ME SOME TIME
FIND ME SOME SPACE, FIND ME SOME TIME
AS EVERY SINGLE ORBIT GOES, OUTER SPACE CAN TAKE ITS TOLL

VERSE INSTRUMENTAL

VERSE 3
HOOPLA, HOOPLA, WE CAN BE OUR GUIDING STAR
HOOPLA, HOOPLA, 10 TO 1 THE COUNTDOWN STARTS
(‘COS/YES) THE GRAVITY INSIDE, CAN MAKE A BLACK HOLE OPEN WIDE
FIND ME SOME SPACE, FIND ME SOME TIME
FIND ME SOME SPACE, FIND ME SOME TIME
AS EVERY SINGLE ORBIT GOES, OUTER SPACE CAN TAKE ITS TOLL

BUT THE MOON SHINES BRIGHTER, WHEN YOU’RE STANDING HERE
SHARING THIS SPACE, KNOWING YOU’RE NEAR
BUT THE MOON SHINES BRIGHTER, WHEN YOU’RE STANDING HERE
SHARING THIS SPACE, KNOWING YOU’RE NEAR
BUT THE MOON SHINES BRIGHTER, WHEN YOU’RE STANDING HERE
SHARING THIS SPACE, KNOWING YOU’RE NEAR
