Sometimes I see three in the morning Sometimes I dread a new day dawning It's just the moon catching up with me Catching up with me (Catching up with me) Sometimes I see four in the morning Sometimes I see a star falling It's just those shooting star wishes catching up with me Catching up with me (Catching up with me) I'm not, no I'm not afraid of the dark No I'm not, I'm not afraid of the dark, no no It's just sometimes, it's just sometimes the darkness It catches up with me Oooh catches up with me Sometimes I see five in the morning Sometimes I hear a tui calling It's just a haunting melody catching up with me Catching up with me (Catching up with me) It's just a haunting melody catching up with me Catching up with me (Catching up with me)

Was it naïve of me to believe, There were facets of you that could still catch the light? I should have known deep down in my bones Still I held onto you white-knuckle tight I didn't stand a chance I didn't stand a chance, no I didn't stand a chance I didn't stand a chance I didn't stand a chance Close your eyes dear - and block your ears These things we talk about are well beyond your years I'm warning you child, please listen to me I don't think you know through clouds you can't see I didn't stand a chance I didn't stand a chance, no I didn't stand a chance I didn't stand a chance I didn't stand a chance

Heart Full Of Dirt At first it was easy, spending all my dough and having nothing left at the end of the day You'd tell me 'We're out of beer, thought you like to know' But I'd just laugh and brush it away But then you started rough, you'd push and you'd shove You'd leave me feeling broken and hurt Oh you took that shovel and you dug and you dug And left me with a heart full of dirt You left me with a heart full of dirt ooh ooh You left me with a heart full of dirt Oh you took that shovel and you dug and you dug And left me with a heart full of dirt You were out all day and up all night Never ever lending a hand Oh you'd take my loving and throw it away Never caring where it might land So I said to myself 'What am I gonna do?' And a small idea started to grow in my head I can't spend my life getting beat down by you I'd love you so much more if you were dead Oh I'd love you so much more if you were dead ooh ooh Oh I'd love you so much more if you were dead I can't spend my life getting beat down by you I'd love you so much more if you were dead So early one morning, you stumbled in And passed out in the middle of the hall I whispered 'Please forgive me, for I'm about to sin' And kicked your head into the wall Oh now you've got a heart full of dirt ooh ooh Yea now you've got a heart full of dirt Oh I took that shovel and I dug and I dug Yea now you've got a heart full of dirt

When the night falls and the cold creeps in When the night bird sings and your clothes litter your floor Your bed gets that lived in feeling and the day gets left behind That's when I'll be waiting That's when I'll be waiting That's when I'll be waiting That's when I'll be waiting When the day calls and you fight to let it in When day continues to spin outside your door Your whole house gets that lived in feeling and the mess you don't seem to mind That's when I'll be waiting That's when I'll be waiting That's when I'll be waiting That's when I'll be waiting When the day calls and you fight to let it in When day continues to spin outside your door Your whole house gets that lived in feeling and the mess you don't seem to mind That's when I'll be waiting That's when I'll be waiting That's when I'll be waiting That's when I'll be waiting Oooh...
