Track Name: raise the blinds
I need to raise the blinds
let in some light
it's all a state of mind
it's all a lie
and if you raise my blinds
the dawning day
will shine its light upon
the ruins and decay

I need to focus on
the brighter side
the only part of me
that won't collide
with the guiding lines
the rules apply
to everyone
still living in denial

I need to hold on to you
I need to I need to
will you be dancing in my light
I need to hold on to you
I need to oh I need to
will you be dancing in my light
for both of us tonight

And suddenly the words
fell from your eyes
it's in your state of mind
it's in your kiss

so if you raise my blinds
I won't chase you away
just shine your light upon
the ruins and decay

I need to hold on to you
I need to I need to
will you be dancing in my light
I need to hold on to you
I need to oh I need to
will you be dancing in my light

I need to hold on to you
I need to I need to
will you be dancing in my light
I need to hold on to you
I need to oh I need to
will you be dancing in my light
(for both of us tonight)
Track Name: she is leaving
I want to be
whatever she wants me to be
I want to go
where she wants me to go
I will sing
every song she prefers
and even dance
to her favourite tune

Now its gettin late - why won't she stay
Its getting late - why wont she stay, stay, stay

Its better this way
Its better this way
Its better this way
She's leaving, She's leaving, She's leaving
She's leaving, She's leaving, She's leaving
She's leaving, She's leaving

I want to see
what she wants me to see
Still I don't know
where it's taking me
I can shine
for at little while
in her light
but never in her eyes

Now its gettin late - why won't she stay
Its getting late - why wont she stay, stay, stay

Its better this way
Its better this way
Its better this way
She's leaving, She's leaving, She's leaving
She's leaving, She's leaving, She's leaving
Track Name: distance
Distance

If the only thing between us now
is distance
Then sweet New York
it's time to say goodbye

We've been blessed with
memories for a lifetime
seems like only
yesterday to me

I was at your door
- once more - with feeling
Sleeping on the floor
I saw - you leaving

Now the only thing
between us - is distance
I've been out of tune
with you too long

We have strayed in
different directions
Holding on was never
in our cards

When I was in your eyes
I tried to tell you
It came as no surprise
when all hell broke loose

Bridge

If the only thing between us
- is distance
Sweet New York it's time to
say goodnight

We've been blessed with memories
worth a lifetime
I sometimes wish
I could just forget

That I was at your door
- once more with feeling
Sleeping on the floor
I saw you leaving

I was at your door
- once more with feeling
Sleeping on the floor
I saw you leaving

Goodbye New York
