A Life Alone 08:13
Like a flower from a grave I stole your grieving heart away I drained the life and soul The very breath from your gasping mouth A simple act of choice Like a single drop of rain The sound of your voice Comes haunting me again Dearest love, It wasn't supposed to turn out quite like this Pressed against the stone The carvings reveal you died a life alone A simple act of choice Like a single drop of rain The sound of your voice Comes haunting me again Somehow in the dark You reach out and sing to me Of the life I've yet to live Of the life I've left behind I'm screaming at your side Please, God, why was it here? You burned the light from my eyes And left me stranded on the shore I'm screaming at your side Please, God, why was it here? I have seen the stars that blind From souls when they expire

People say how much I've changed But I'm the same man who's always loved you But now you don't even know me Can't recall my face I can't stand to watch you fade away I'll say goodbye while I watch your light go out I can't stand to watch you feel such pain I still love you but I have to end it now You can't control your functions any more And I can't keep on cleaning up So now it's got to end Forgive me while I find the strength I can't stand to watch you fade away I'll say goodbye while I watch your light go out I can't stand to watch you feel such pain I still love you but I have to end it now It's been forty years since we met If I didn't love you I couldn't end your life And when it's over, look for me in the stars We'll join together and share our love again Share our love again In the stars
4.
I don't want to go to sleep tonight I don't want to wake up alone I'm afraid to wake I can't face a day without your love Stays with me while the blood runs through my veins I'm afraid to wake I'm afraid to wake Yes, I'm afraid to sleep I might not see the morning with my eyes I'm afraid death Yes, I'm afraid of life I might not see the morning with my eyes The very moment I knew your heart was mine I felt your breath letting go I'm afraid to wake I'd held you too tight, too hard And now I must live with this regret I'm afraid to wake

Out Of Reach 10:44
6.
You spend your whole life Wanting things you cannot have The fancy cars and girls A gold-plated bath We've all had days like these When it seems so out of reach Its a question of waiting A question of belief Living in the shadows Haunted by your ghost I cannot hide the feelings I need to be the host The girl you want the most Is in the arms of someone else She's as distant as the sun But feels closer than the rain On the road to heartache Lies another armchair suicide Another lonely victim of the feelings kept inside She's finally your girl But still, you look around Another empty heart lies broken on the ground You realised your dreams Though the years have passed you by Was it worth the pain? What did it take to make you cry? The tears that lead to your door Line the inside of your soul These are the remnants Of a man who lost control Love, loss & desire They're all we know Living a life so full of sadness Love, loss & desire Love, loss & desire
7.
I know it's against the laws of nature and man We're struggling with feelings we don't understand Biology is one thing but love is quite another I'll cling to you like flesh Like a shadow from a palm In a moment of clarity, I saw you for what you are I saw you without your skin And it made me feel afraid I stood by the side-lines While I watched them tend your wounds I cried as my reflection sighed in disbelief They undid your clothing To feel your heartbeat But that which is broken Can never be repaired What price our misdeeds? How do you reconcile the hurt? I've watched you slip away And I've only myself to blame

about

Released in 1999, this powerful and emotive album features Ken Senior (Evolution, Parallel or 90 Degrees) on Vocals.

Filled with thoughtful and thought-provoking lyrics and stunning guitar work, this is a must-have release!

Featuring 5 songs and 2 instrumentals, this is sure to please every fan of quality rock music. You want heavy rocking Hammond thrashing? Do you want lush orchestral ballads and complex epics? You got the lot on this magnificent opus.

Featuring guitar as the dominant instrument, this album has too many highlights to mention. Ken Senior once again does a marvellous job, delivering some lyrically difficult material with sensitivity and panache.
