about

The follow up to 2016's "Time Is My Worst Enemy", "A World Away From You" largely deals with the dilemma of being separated from the people you love and care about, as well as the desire to get out and see the world before it's too late.
These songs are the most personal I've ever written
"Even Heroes Have Bad Days" dedicated to Chester Charles Bennington, 1976-2017.

Track Name: A Million Miles Away
I only get your voice most of the time
I never get to feel your hand holding mine
'Cos you're a million miles, you're a million miles away

I never see your face, not in the real world
I've only got eyes for you but you're not my girl
'Cos you're a million miles, you're a million miles away

No, you don't make it any easier
Easier to fall in love with you
I know the words you've been wanting me to say
But you're a million miles away
A million miles away...

I don't know where you are now, where you might have been
The nights that I need you, you're nowhere to be seen
'Cos you're a million miles, you're a million miles away

No, you don't make it any easier
Easier to fall in love with you
I know the words you've been wanting me to say
But you're a million miles away
A million miles away...

They say it don't matter if you're here or there
But they don't like someone who's a million miles away

No, you don't make it any easier
Easier to fall in love with you
I know the words you've been wanting me to say
But you're a million miles away
A million miles away...
A million miles away...
Track Name: Across The Runway
Your face looked a lot like another
I knew many years ago
Your smile made me melt like a young boy
Finding love for the first time

In the rush I lost you
So many people running inside
Just when I had given up
I saw you wave from the other side

Maybe a reason to leave it all behind
Maybe I should have tried harder that day
I saw you smiling at me from the other side
Maybe your love was waiting across the runway

I spent so much time talking to you
That long hot December day
Waiting together for hours
And never short of things to say

I was too caught up in your beauty
I never thought to ask your name
I wanted to see you another time
Were you thinking the same?

Maybe a reason to leave it all behind
Maybe I should have tried harder that day
I saw you smiling at me from the other side
Maybe your love was waiting across the runway

Lights went down, noise came up
A sea of people came alive
And I never got another chance
To see you wave from the other side

Maybe a reason to leave it all behind
Maybe I should have tried harder that day
I saw you smiling at me from the other side
Maybe your love was waiting across the runway
Across the runway...
Across the runway...
Across the runway...
Track Name: The Night I Lost You
You gave it away, there was no smile
You said I hurt you and you'd been hurting for a while
You gave it away, I saw you cry
Your eyes full of tears and I was tearing up inside

Asked you to give me another chance
But you wouldn't let that be
My bed feels too big now
It's empty where you were beside me

On the night I lost you
I saw the brightness turn to blue
And all my dreams, they wouldn't come true
That was the night I lost you

You left me that night as rain came down
Had to be alone, alone is what I am right now
You left me that night to be on your own
My heart was empty, it's an empty feeling when I get home

On the night I lost you
I saw the brightness turn to blue
And all my dreams they wouldn't come true
That was the night I lost you

I can't live with you, 'cos you won't try
I can't live without you, every minute I wonder why
Why?

On the night I lost you
I saw the brightness turn to blue
And all my dreams they wouldn't come true
That was the night I lost you

On the night I lost you
Nobody told me what to do
And you don't know what I went through
That was the night I lost you
Track Name: Euphoria
Our dreams come alive tonight in a faraway place
I can see the joy in your eyes and the smile on your face
Take my hand, run across the sand, it's great to be alive
Everybody needs euphoria
Well I know I do...

It's the time of my life with you by my side... in this other world
I took a picture of you with the sky so blue... in this other world
A sunny day by the sea, we are feeling free... in this other world
Because here, the bad times disappear

Our dreams come alive tonight in a faraway place
I can see the joy in your eyes and the smile on your face
Take my hand, run across the sand, it's great to be alive
Everybody needs euphoria
Well I know I do...
I do...

It's taken so many years to get past my fears and I'm glad I have
Yeah it's been so many years finding my way here and I'm glad I have
Because here, our love will only grow
Don't wanna leave, I wish that we could stay
Can we stay?

Our dreams come alive tonight in a faraway place
I can see the joy in your eyes and the smile on your face
Take my hand, run across the sand, it's great to be alive
Everybody needs euphoria
Well I know I do...
Yeah I know I do...
Track Name: Come Home
You needed me most that day
I was a thousand miles away
I could hear your voice but
I couldn't touch you

You cried to me on the line
Could feel your tears run with mine
I could feel the love but
I couldn't touch you

Having the time of my life
But feeling incomplete
You knew I was missing you
And that's when you said to me...

Come home, come home
Baby come home, it hurts when we're apart
Come home, just come home
Take me in your arms again, heal my aching heart

Some people are meant to be
And you were the one that melted me
When someone would let me down
I'd know you would be there

It's always a lonely day
When your lover's half a world away
But when I'd dream at night
I'd know you would be there

Having the time of my life
But feeling incomplete
And though you were far away
I smiled when you said to me...

Come home, come home
Baby come home, it hurts when we're apart
Come home, just come home
You don't even know how much I miss you now

Come closer
Oh, let me take your hand and bring you home tonight

Come home, come home
Baby come home, it hurts when we're apart
Come home, just come home
You don't even know how much I miss you now
Track Name: The Death Of Me
I was walking home with you that summer night
It was then I knew that I was living a lie
I didn't wanna break another's heart
But from your smile I knew that something was on your mind
And the mischievous look in your eye...

You told me I made you smile
You stayed with me for a while
That night I lived dangerously
Oh love, you'll be the death of me!

You're gonna, gonna, gonna be the death of me

I was drowning in a sea of alcohol
And the room was spinning right before my eyes
Don't wanna go to hell for my bad ways
So I said to you "this would not be wise"

You told me I made you smile
You stayed with me for a while
That night I lived dangerously
Oh love, you'll be the death of me!

You're gonna, gonna, gonna be the death of me

As I watched you walk away that summer night
I was sure I would be hearing from you again
Will I then be a weaker man?

You told me I made you smile
You stayed with me for a while
That night plays in my memories
Oh love, you'll be the death of me!

You're gonna, gonna, gonna be the death of me
Track Name: Even Heroes Have Bad Days
That morning I woke up to the worst news in the world - you'd gone
I couldn't believe that you would never sing again, oh no

That morning I broke down, didn't want to face the day alone
I couldn't believe that you had been in so much pain, oh no

You can fight against your demons but sometimes you can't win

Sometimes we cry
And there's no one to hold us, hold us close
Sometimes we fall
And there's no one to pick us up and help us on our way
Sometimes we're lost
And there's no one to guide us, guide us home
Sometimes we need help
Even the best of us, the best of us
'Cos even heroes have bad days

When I was feeling down I'd find myself listening to you
You'd lift me out of my haze and give me a reason to smile again

When I had lost myself your words would be in my mind, so true
I know you had lived your life trying to fight the hurt inside

You can save so many people, but sometimes not yourself

Sometimes we cry
And there's no one to hold us, hold us close
Sometimes we fall
And there's no one to pick us up and help us on our way
Sometimes we're lost
And there's no one to guide us, guide us home
Sometimes we need help
Even the best of us, the best of us
'Cos even heroes have bad days
Track Name: My Last Summer
You tell me it's not too late to change - I would like to believe
I've still not found my place in life, maybe now I can

Dark times may come along
But right now they're not around
I don't think about yesterday
I won't think about yesterday

Time catches us all
I never jumped, I was afraid to fall
But I don't want to look back any more
This is my last summer

I've tried my best to be beautiful in body and soul
I've seen the colours I wanted to see, just a fleeting glimpse, and
I've felt the love I wanted to feel, all too quickly

Time catches us all
I never jumped, I was afraid to fall
But I don't want to look back any more
This is my last summer

I've tried not to be invisible
I've tried hard to make it in this world
I don't think about yesterday
I won't think about yesterday

Time catches us all
I never jumped, I was afraid to fall
But I don't want to look back any more
This is my last summer

Sunny days, amazing nights
This is my last summer
Sunny days, amazing nights
This is my last summer
Sunny days, amazing nights
This is my last summer
Track Name: Ethan Davis (feat Joshua Harris & Glen Gearing) - This Time Of Year
I hold you in my arms, it takes away all of our fears
And hear those special words as they are whispered into my ear
We only get to feel each other's touch this time of year

Our love is magic, together in this place
Our love is real, it will never die
Our time is short but filled with happiness
And beautiful memories

I spend these sunny days with the one girl I hold dear
And hear an angel's voice that only sings this time of year

Our love is magic, together in this place
Our love is real, it will never die
Our time is short but filled with happiness
And beautiful memories

We're far from home
I don't wanna go home again
I just wanna stay with you
Stay in this time and place and spend eternity
Not just this time of year
Not just this time of year...

Our love is magic, together in this place
Our love is real, it will never die
Our time is short but filled with happiness
And beautiful memories

And as you disappear, my love, I know I'll shed a tear
But I will see again the love in your eyes this time of year
This time of year
Track Name: Never Alone
I'd hold your hand as you screamed it wasn't fair
I'd hold your hand as you cried that no one cared
I would say it was all right
But that was me telling lies

I'd watch you hurt, spirit fading by the day
I'd watch you hurt, didn't know what words to say
The look of defeat in your eyes
Grew stronger as weeks went by
Why didn't I cry?
Why didn't I cry?

You were never alone
You were never, ever alone
All through the good times and the bad
You were never alone

I'd watch you hurt, saw the rage inside of you
I'd watch you hurt, didn't know what I could do
To make your pain disappear
Now it's you that's disappeared
Why couldn't you stay?
Why couldn't you stay?

You were never alone
You were never, ever alone
All through the good times and the bad
You were never alone
You were never, ever alone
And now it's too late, I have watched you slip away

So I miss you now as I fall to sleep
That precious time in your company
Left alone with only memories
Once again I miss you now

You were never alone
You were never, ever alone
All through the good times and the bad
You were never alone
You were never, ever alone
And now it's too late, I have watched you slip away

Never ever, never ever
You were never ever alone
Track Name: Auckland (Far From Home)
My home is to the left of me
It's never been so far away
I like it, I like it, part of me wants to stay

Unknown people smile at me
So courteous, so friendly
I like it, I like it, part of me never wants to leave

You can dream or you can take a chance today
Don't hide in the dark, pack your bags and fly away

Hey now
I'm very far from home now
I'm glad I'm not alone now
There's a whole other world
A world that I've been hiding from
A world of dreams
A world that I can get out and see

Tonight I think I'll go explore
See what new sights I can find
I'm leaving, I'm leaving inhibitions behind

Skyline, a city lit up at night
A country boy will miss this view
I'm leaving, I'm leaving, enjoyed this time with you

Don't let every day slip away

Hey now
I'm very far from home now
I'm glad I'm not alone now
There's a whole other world
A world that I've been hiding from
A world of dreams
A world that I can finally see

Hey now
I'm very far from home now
I'm seeing a new world now
A bigger, better world now
Wanna come with me?
Track Name: Don't Wait Forever
The thrill of the chase is all you've known
The thrill is what you've been living for
It's killing you

You know you are feeling incomplete
You know it's how you've always been
And it's killing you

But maybe you can find someone to love and look after you

No, don't wait forever
Forever's a long time when you're alone
No, don't waste your life
Just don't

The tick of the clock is what you hear
The tick that's getting faster now
It's haunting you

The lines on your face are what you see
The lines that mean your youth is gone
And it's haunting you

But maybe you'll wake up and change your ways before it's too late

No, don't wait forever
To find someone who isn't real
No, don't waste your life
Trying to work out how you feel
No, don't wait forever
The years are flying right by
No, don't waste your life
Just to die all alone
All alone...

No, don't wait forever
Forever's a long time when you're alone
No, don't waste your life
Just to die all alone
