Track Name: In the dark
In the dark

What are they trying to do?
Why are they lying to you?
Where does your mind lay?
In the dark
In the dark

When its dark, I’m feeling down
When you try, no ones around
When I cry you laugh at the sound
When I die, In the dark
In the dark

I don’t know where to turn
I couldn’t tell anyone
Our little secret, I’m told
I’m in the shadows
And I’m on the run

When your dark, no one knows
How could I say let me alone
I wanna scream what no one knows
When I cry you make sure we’re alone

In the dark
Your poison heart
When your eyes kill
And your mind tears
I feel so cold

When it hurts you do it all the more
How could you want me this way
If I could would I walk out the door
If I told, what would I say
About the dark
Track Name: d d colvin - Lost and found
Lost and found

Here I go on my own, looking in from the cold
Feeling old, exploding inside with no place to hide

You stripped me bare, there’s nothing left,
just flesh and bone, a hollow soul, no place to go
I’m like a fire, beginning to grow

Was it something I said? Am I loosing my head?
Is it something about me?
That makes you wish that you were free
And I… Dead

There we go again, lines are drawn on the battle ground
Of the lost and found but no ones winning
Is that the price you pay?

So off you go again with the same old song
I did you wrong, but your strong so it won’t be long,
before I’m learning. You think I’d crawl back to you?

Was it something I said? Did it stick in your head?
Because there’s something about me
That makes you wish that you were free
And I … Dead

Here I go, to the very end standing firm on solid ground
Were the lost are found, they sing a new song, and sing it out loud

You stepped on me so many times, times I lost, lost my mind,
Now I find I’m happy outside, I need you no more!

Was it something I said? Am I loosing my head?
Because there’s something about me
That makes you wish that you were free
And I dead.

Stand by me, truth will set you free
Open your mind, love is lost inside

Was it something I said? Did I make you see red?
Because there’s something about me
That makes you wish that you were free
And I… Dead.
Track Name: Sunshine
Sunshine

The first time I saw you I was in love
Sunshine, sunshine

I looked at your eyes and I was mesmerised
Sunshine, sunshine
I held on to your hand, you held on to mine
Sunshine, your divine

And now I know you’re here in my life
Everything’s right, you brought back the light
I held back the tears, for the first time in years
When I saw your face
We named you Grace

These were the proudest days of my life
Sunshine, sunshine
They restored faith back into my heart
Sunshine, your mine

And now I know you’re here in my life
Everything’s right, you brought back the light
I held back the tears for the first time in years
When you took your first breath
We named you Seth.

Sunshine….
Track Name: Sojourn
Sojourn

Turn the key, unlock this door
Don’t be afraid to ask for more
For I will walk this lonely path
For I will stand against the wind

Turn this life that’s made from stone
Turn those eyes and see how you’ve grown
For I will stand against this wrong
And I will fight for freedom now

Open your mind, remove the veil
That blinded your heart and made you stale
Sojourn.

All of your life you’ve been waiting
Watching this evil grow
The hate and anger, the knife in your hand
And the blood on the streets stains your soul

Turn your mind into gold
Don’t be afraid to set it free
For we will walk this lonely path
And we can stand against the wind

Hold my hand as hell breaks loose
Hold your nerve as the devil breaks free
For we will stand the fires of hell
And we will see justice served

Turn the life that you’ve always known
Turn from the shroud that you’ve outgrown
Sojourn
Track Name: d d colvin - Feels like dying
Feels like dying

Did you ever think how my life would be?
Have you ever wondered where I am now?
Somewhere inside me there’s a wound so deep
It was caused by the ones that I needed the most

Do you remember me? Or was it too long ago?
Did you tell me you loved me, but had to go?
Do you remember the child you left that night?
Do you ever think of me now I’m out of sight?

I’m getting older now, with children of my own
I love them with all my heart; I’ll never let them go

So how could you leave, the three year old boy
That loved his daddy he never got to know
I’m not so hard to find, if you want to look
Cos this feels like dying, the road you took

How can I tell you that I missed you so?
I wished you had been with me to watch me grow

You hung us out to dry with no way out
Removed our memory from your heart
Do you ever care about the years gone by?
Or is your life complete, no time to cry?
How could I love you after all these years?
Because the wound inside me will never heal
Track Name: d d colvin - Christmas lights
Christmas lights

The cold, damp rain
Falls from the grey winter’s sky
The dark night creeps in
Like the chill in my eye

The exaltation to the glittering lights
Like the moth is drawn to the flame
The shops open late tonight
Hoping to draw you in

And yet I feel so alone
Among the crowd in the night
This chill reaches through to my bones
There’s no warmth from these winter lights

All the years of love together
Till the last breath you took that night
Your hand slipped away from my hand
In the twinkling of Christmas lights

Now there’s no one to share my dreams with
No gifts to leave by the tree
Just the memories left in my heart
Of the joy and pain Christmas can bring

For all the forgotten people
That have no-one with them to say
May the good Lord bless you this Christmas
And not take your true love away
Track Name: d d colvin - Changing tide
Changing tide

Do you think that you’re the only one?
Mother Nature’s lost, forgotten son?
Am I just a stubborn guy
Learning to fly outta here?

Past walls of fear
With nothing to lose

The light in my eyes
And the fight in my heart
Is fading fast
But I’m not finished yet

You’re not the only one
You’re not alone my son

Can you see a glimmer of light?
In this the blackest night?
Reach out and touch the sun
Get out of bed and run

Cos this may be your last chance
Don’t let it be the last dance

Make your own path
Don’t follow the crowd
Don’t be a fool go have some fun
Learn to live and love someone
Before you rot away
Catch the waves in a changing tide
Track Name: d d colvin - Cry for help
Cry for help

Deeper I keep falling into a living hell
Is there no one who will help me?
Is there no one I can tell?

But I still call your name
My head hung in shame
I look at the empty faces
But there’s no one I can blame today.

Slowly I keep sinking I’m struggling to breathe
The walls keep getting higher my senses take their leave

But I still call your name
My head hung in shame
I look at the empty faces
Still there’s no one I can blame it on.

Can you see me now? Can you hear me call?
Do you recognise I’d given it my all?
Will you walk away? Turn your back on me?
If only you would say, I’ve come to set you free
I’ve come to set you free

My heart keeps pounding faster my throat is getting dry
I’m heading for disaster unless I change before I die

But I still call your name
My head hung in shame
I look at the empty faces
But there’s no one I can blame for this

Can you see me now? Can you hear me call?
Do you recognise I’d given it my all?
Will you walk away? Turn your back on me?
If only you would say, I’ve come to set you free
I’ve come to set you free

Can you hear my cry for help?
Can you hear my cry?
Oh Lord
Track Name: d d colvin - Torn
Torn

If you knew me, like I know you we would be just fine
We would pass the time, we would be inclined to love again

If you could see, what’s in my mind life would be okay
You would understand I’m just a boy trapped inside the man

I know we said some silent words that tore the cloth
That stitched us together, wrapped us up, but now that’s gone

So hold on, reach out and hold on me
Shout out, open your heart and set yourself free
Can’t you see?

Life is just a game, caught out in the rain
Trapped inside a cage holding back the rage
Memories to blame, driving me insane
No turning back the time, you know it was a crime
To me you were so cruel, treat me like a fool
I’m not just anyone, you know I was your son
Down the river I go.

If you could feel, the pain I feel you would emphasise
You would hear my cries you would see the lies that surround your heart

If you loved me unconditionally, I could breathe again.
I would smile once more; I would see the sun shine down on me

But I know we said those silent words that tore the cloth
That stitched us together, wrapped us up but now that’s gone

So hold on, reach out and call on me
Shout out, open your heart and set yourself free
Can’t you see?
Track Name: d d colvin - Chambers of hell
Chambers of hell

''we have carried out this most difficult task for the love of our people and have taken no defect within us in our soul or in our character"
(Heinrich Himmler, 1943)


Tears were falling for you my friend
A lost frightened child on a train to hell
The last stop of life, approaching the gates
As the hounds with their guns took your mother away

Where was God in that dark desperate night?
When you were dragged from your bed
Your heart filled with fright.
And how could your neighbours treat you this way?
To the Devil they sold you as you were taken away

How could they look in your eyes and not feel a thing?
At the lost frightened child in the chamber of hell
You were naked, forsaken, stolen, in pain
As the hounds with their guns took your life away

For those who survived the hunger and the pain
Can still hear the cry in the chambers of hell
So hold out your hand, stand in tyrannies way
For the children keep singing, let love find its way
