MICK HART – AWAKE album lyrics

 

Peaceful Nest

So as we wait here
There’s nothing going,
there’s nothing going wrong
Like in a daydream
Nothing but sweetness,
nothing but sun and moon
Then comes a dark cloud
Like out of nowhere,
like out of nothing else
Don’t let it throw you
We’ll be ok here, we’re in the peaceful nest

Here in the silence
So let it calm you, so let it calm you so
Here now a soft breeze
It’s here to touch you, it’s here to comfort you
But when the rain comes
Like out of nowhere,
don’t let it weigh you down
No need to worry, we’ll be ok here
We’re in the peaceful nest
We’re in the peaceful nest

3am or Anytime

Now as I lay beside you baby
Feels like I’m floating with you
Just like the calmness of the ocean
My arms are here to cradle you
And in the peacefulness of morning
The breeze is gently blowing
And now the sun peeks in my window
All here to guide and light your way

You can steal my blanket anytime
You can drink my last full glass of wine
You can wake me for help at 3am or anytime
You can take my heart because you’re mine

And now the birds are softly singing
A so sweet lullaby for you
And as you slowly start to wake up
My tender touch will follow you

You can steal my blanket anytime
You can drink my last full glass of wine
You can wake me for help at 3am or anytime
You can take my heart because you’re mine

Now as I lay beside you baby
Feels like I’m floating with you
Now as I lay beside you baby
Feels like I’m so in love with you

The Way It Is

Caught up in the reason
Caught up in the prize
Caught up in the questions that rattle inside
Drawn in by the story
Drawn in by the eyes
So fooled by the touch and the negative mind

You don’t owe me nothing
There’s nothing more to this
I don’t owe you nothing
That’s just the way it is

Caught out with the sweetness
Tricked up by the smile
No sign of the flipside and what was behind
Can’t help with the unknown
Can’t undo the time
We can’t agree on the meaning
and all that you hide

You don’t owe me nothing
There’s nothing more to this
I don’t owe you nothing
That’s just the way it is

Can’t help with the unknown
We can’t undo the time
We can’t agree on the meaning
and all that you hide hide hide

You don’t owe me nothing
There’s nothing more to this
I don’t owe you nothing
That’s just the way it is

Light My Way

I got my mind now working,
no you won’t fool me anymore
I got no time for faking,
so you can leave it at the door
I’ve had my share of bad luck,
but no won’t let it rule my way
I’m on the road to good things,
now I can see the brighter day

Got the heat in my hands
Got the instinct to understand
Like a new flame from above
Like a fever burning up
To light my way

Was in an endless bad dream,
no way to find the wishing well
Caught up in empty reason,
like in some so cold voodoo spell
But then the sun came shining,
like in this fine fine day
Melted away my demons,
melted away my pain

Got the heat in my hands
Got the instinct to understand
Like a new flame from above
Like a fever burning up
To light my way

To light my way
To light my way

Keep Hold

There once was a time
when the sun it did shine
Warm on my face like the comforting kind
But those days have slipped
now to darkness and rain
Still I try… to keep hold of the line

Here on my own with this delicate mind
Is this the cause of why I fell so behind?
I gave and I gave but got used up and broke
Still I try… to keep hold of the line
Still I try… to keep hold of the line

Too many days in the unknown
Waiting for something to rise
Now all of the answers are probably gone
Still I try… to keep hold of the line
Still I try… to keep hold of the line

I’ve wrestled the pain like a war in my head
I’ve reached out for reason
but got silence instead
Now all that I’m feeling is ache in my bones
Still I try… to keep hold of the line
Still I try… to keep hold of the line

Too many days in the unknown
Waiting for something to rise
Now all of the answers are probably gone
Still I try… to keep hold of the line
Still I try… to keep hold of the line

Escape

Caught inside a maze, looking for another way
Staring at the sun,
waiting for the sky to change
Repetition road, on and on it’s all the same
Nothing’s really clear,
when everything’s an endless game

But when the day is done
We will feel more calm than now
When the race is run
We will find escape somehow,
we will find escape somehow

Stirring in the night,
haven’t slept for days and days
See a distant sign, blurry in the foggy haze
This is how we heal,
this is when the moment comes
This is when it’s real,
this is when it’s all or none

When the day is done
We will feel more calm than now
When the race is run
We will find escape somehow,
we will find escape somehow

Falling, falling out, falling out of line

So where are we now?
Are we at the final bend?
So where are we now?
Is this where the journey ends?

When the day is done
We will feel more calm than now
When the race is run
We will find escape somehow,
we will find escape somehow
We will find escape, we will find escape

Inside of Nowhere

Lost inside his room
Spinning out of control
Voices in his head
Just won’t leave him alone

And now he’s lost in there and then
With no way to get back
to when it all made sense
Yeah now he’s lost in there and then
Still trying to get back
to when it all was better than this

And it’s all wrong

Like a moment stuck in time
A replay in his mind
He can’t seem to understand
All the other good that’s in his hands

And now he’s lost in there and then
With no way to get back
to when it all made sense
Yeah now he’s lost in there and then
Still trying to get back
to when it all was better than this

And it’s all wrong

Stuck in the misery, stuck in the misery

Inside of nowhere now
he’s lost in there and then
With no way to get back
to when it all made sense
Yeah now he’s lost in there and then
Still trying to get back
to when it all was better than this

And it’s all wrong, Yeah it’s all wrong

Fading out

Help me now, help me now
I’m wearing thin, I’m fading out

Oh to free the complications in my mind
Just to separate today from troubled past

Help me now, come for me now
Help me now, I’m fading out

I’m all a mess, I’m all apart
This mud is deep, don’t let me drown
As I’m wrestling with these
demons down and dark
Still I’m searching for the light to make a start

Help me now, come for me now
Help me now, I’m fading out

So here it is, so here we are
What life is this without a spark?
As I drag myself along this empty street
I know I must keep holding on to find my feet
And as I greet the morning light,
I reach for something more than this

Help me now, help me now
I’m wearing thin, I’m fading out
Help me now, come for me now
I’m wearing thin, I’m fading out
I’m fading out

Real Thing

The way that you hold me
I’m melting away beneath your touch
Floating and falling
Deeper and deeper in this love
This is the real thing

This is contagious
The moment your lips press to mine
Lost in your sweetness
Without any clue or sense of time
This is the real thing
This is for always

Falling, falling
Into your blissful comfort
Skin to skin here under this raindrop sky
And it’s so right

Falling, falling
Into your deep love embrace
Skin to skin beneath this moonlit night
And it’s so right

The breath of the morning
Drifts in as I gaze your honey smile
Heavenly feeling
And beautiful light within your eyes
This is the real thing
This is for always
This is the real thing
This is for always

Just Like It Was

Here before
Here before these eyes
Sudden pain
Painful but no surprise

And I wait for you to come undone
And I wait for anything new to bring it back

Just like it was
Just like it was
Fallen days without us

We walk
We walk in two
Tied in chains
Tied in hopes of happiness

And I can’t forget the detail lost
And I search through hopelessness
for moments to bring it back

Just like it was
Just like it was
Fallen days, fallen days without us

Open, awake to the face
Breathing,
but now it’s too late for remembrance
For anything

Just like it was
Just like it was
Fallen days, fallen days, fallen days without us

Endless River Song

Drifting for too long, reaching to belong
Weary from the road
There’s no way back home

Differently we tread, questioning our heads
Gone beyond the roam
There’s no way back home

Dreaming slow, so it goes
Nothing clear
Still we wait and wait

All inside has changed, paths all rearranged
Chance can leave you cold
But there’s no way back home

Dreaming slow, so it goes
Nothing clear
Still we wait and wait

Drifting for too long, endless river song
Life is growing old
There’s no way back home
There’s no way back home

Star Bed

All this time there was something missing,
there was something more to come
For so long there was a haze,
drifting in the endless roam

Then it came, then you came along
and just like the sweetest song
There you took my breath away
With your beauty and
your sway before my eyes
Like a star bed in the sky

Now as you lay your head on my pillow
Let your body warm into my arms
Let all your fears now float on away
Coz it’s you the stars are shining on

And I know, yeah I know you feel the same
It was not until that day
Yeah from the day you held my hand
That the sunlight cleared
the sand before our eyes
And all magic came alive

So lay your head on my pillow
Let your body warm into my arms
Let your dreams come and take you away
Coz it’s you the stars are shining on

Like the tender tickle of the breeze
and the whisper of the birds among the trees
There’s a gentleness of light inside my soul
while you’re smiling next to me

Now lay your head on my pillow
Let your body warm into my arms
Let all your fears now float on away
Coz it’s you the stars are shining on
Coz it’s you the stars are shining on

All Then None

You want it, you got it
You take and then you leave it
You’re willing and reaching,
with nothing in-between
And now you question the meaning
of everything before you
The realness is fleeting

Hell with the waiting,
hell with the all then none
You’re not the money,
you’re not the only one

Beside me you’re smiling
and taking taking taking
The drinking and talking
and faking faking faking
Now you speak of desire,
your list of all you’re needing
But the greed is never ending

Hell with the waiting,
hell with the all then none
You’re not the money,
you’re not the only one

Taking and taking
Question the meaning
Faking and faking
Just keeps on going

Hell with the waiting,
hell with the all then none
You’re not the money,
you’re not the only one

Time for the New

Confliction in myself, this is no way to begin
Fighting within myself,
no way to live with this fear
So good so good it was,
but now nowhere to be found
So fast it turned so bad,
feel like I’m starting to drown

Let me go
Need another way out of here
Let it go
Time for the new to begin
Time for the new to begin, time for the new

Too many questions here,
when did the doubt all arrive?
In hesitation and pain,
too much to ever surprise
Can’t find the fix that I need,
can’t find an answer to why
Can’t feel it like it was,
but so hard to say now goodbye

Let me go
Need another way out of here
Let it go
Time for the new to begin
Time for the new to begin, time for the new

Can’t find the fix that I need,
can’t find the fix that I need
It’s time to turn now the page

Let me go
Need another way out of here
Let it go
Time for the new to begin
Time for the new to begin, time for the new

Back to the Start

All this waiting
All this waiting
Is making me cold
Coz I can’t take hold
Of what I don’t know

Show me somewhere to go
Take me back to the start
Coz I can’t go on here in this place
When I can’t see the way
When I can’t see the way

All has been spoken
All has been spoken
But still I don’t know
Where I belong
And I’m losing hope

Show me somewhere to go
Take me back to the start
Coz I can’t go on here in this place
When I can’t see the way
When I can’t see the way
