‘Clouds with Silver’ Lyrics

Lisa Redford 'Clouds with Silver' album cover

Come Back Down

You’ve been waiting
For something that you’ll never find again
In everything you do, you know it’s up to you to make it work, this time
So much sorrow, you’ve set your sights too high once again
When you were standing tall, you know you’re bound to fall and that’s a fact

You’ve been holding
On for too long
Lost all reason in your mind
All the feelings
Lose their meaning
Don’t you think now that it’s time
You come back down again
You come back down again

They’ve been saying, ‘don’t you think it’s time that you’ve moved on’
But when you look inside, an emptiness is all that’s left behind

You’ve been holding
On for too long
Lost all reason in your mind
All the feelings
Lose their meaning
Don’t you think now that it’s time
You come back down again
You come back down again

Come back down again
To where you were before
You’ll be fine and then
Find what you’re looking for
Oh oh oh

You’ve been holding
On for too long
Lost all reason in your mind
All the feelings
Lose their meaning
Don’t you think now that it’s time
You come back down again
You come back down again
You come back down again
You come back down again…

New York Song

Been walking these streets, been heading downtown
Been full of regrets, too late for them now
And though I may say I’m alright, from time to time
Still hiding the pain I’ve been feeling inside

I’m here on my own
Alone in the night
Know that I’ve grown
And I’ll be alright
I’ll never know why it went wrong
I’ll just keep singing my new york song

Stopping at Steinway, meeting my friends
Too late to go back home, to make amends
I know that I’ll miss you sometimes, in my mind
I’m trying to get lost in this perfect sky

I’m here on my own
Alone in the night
Know that I’ve grown
And I’ll be alright
Will never know why things went wrong
I’ll just keep singing my new york song
I know that I changed
Go back if I could
Words on the line were misunderstood
Finding a place where I belong
For now I’m singing my new york song

Doesn’t matter where I go
Doesn’t matter what I do
And though I may say I’m alright from time to time
Still hiding the pain I’ve been feeling inside

I’m here on my own
Alone in the night
Know that I’ve grown
And I’ll be alright
Will never know why things went wrong
I’ll just keep singing my new york song
I know that I changed
Go back if I could
Words on the line were misunderstood
Finding a place where I belong
For now I’m singing my new york song

Call Me

Do you wish there are things that you could change?
Couldn’t find it in your heart to feel the same
The light is fading now behind the trees
It’s when a loneliness drifts over me

Are you on your own tonight then call me
Are you on your own tonight then call me
Are you on your own tonight then call me
Then call me

I know it doesn’t mean that we’re in love
But just your touch tonight would be enough
Don’t wanna talk about the past
And all the things that never last

Are you on your own tonight then call me
Are you on your own tonight then call me
Are you on your own tonight then call me
Then call me tonight
Then call me.tonight..

Makes Your Heart Sing

Is there someone that you long for
Now that someone isn’t me
Got to try and stop believing
If it wasn’t meant to be

And I’m trying so very hard to be so very strong
Now I’m not the one who makes your heart sing

Is there someone that you’re holding
When the night falls, keeps you warm
Is there something that you’re hiding
Deep inside you, keeps you safe from harm

And I know it’s been so long but time don’t mean a thing
When you’ve lost that one who makes your heart sing

Do you listen to the same shows that we used to on the radio
When you’re driving down the same streets, all the places we used to go

And I hope I’ll be alright
Now that love has gone
Then I’ll find the one who makes me heart sing

And I wish you all the love in the world, for all time
And I’ll miss all of those days more than I did when you were mine

Never Was a Yesterday

Yeah ok, I will act like we never met
Yeah ok, I will try hard to forget
Yeah ok, we don’t have to talk about it now
Yeah ok, cos I’ll be moving on somehow

Like there never was a yesterday
Like there never was a smile upon your face
Like there never was a yesterday
Like there never was a heart that had to break
Like there never was a yesterday
Like there never was a price we had to pay
Like there never was
Like there never was
Like there never was a yesterday

Yeah ok, I will act like you never cared
Yeah ok, there were dreams that we never shared
Yeah ok, I just find it hard to let it go
But ok cos I guess that you’ll never know

Like there never was a yesterday
Like there never was a smile upon your face
Like there never was a yesterday
Like there never was a heart that had to break
Like there never was a yesterday
Like there never was a price we had to pay
Like there never was

Something real, something true
That felt so right
I guess all the time, I’d been living life
Like there never was
Goodbye
Goodbye
Goodbye
Oh

Like there never was a yesterday
Like there never was a smile upon your face
Like there never was a yesterday
Like there never was a heart that had to break
Like there never was a yesterday
Like there never was a price we had to pay
Like there never was  a yesterday…

When You Come Home

You followed a path
You travelled the world
Losing sight of who you were
You did as you please
Although you were ‘owned’
Dismissing those who cared the most
But you forgot that luck can turn
You forgot all those you hurt

When you come home what will you do
Now that your friends are gone there’s noone you’re talking to
And when you cry noone will hear
Now there’s nowhere to turn and you’re left standing here
When you come home, when you come home
When you come home, when you come home

Consumed in a world
That just didn’t care
Illusions fade and dreams can disappear
And there were so many you left behind
Now it’s too late to try and put it right
You forgot that looks can fade
You forgot the plans we made

When you come home what will you do
Now that your friends are gone there’s noone you’re talking to
And when you cry noone will hear
Now there’s nowhere to turn and you’re left standing here
When you come home, when you come home
When you come home, when you come home

You forgot about your peace of mind
Now there’s nothing left, nothing more you can hide behind
When you come home

You forgot that luck can turn
You forgot all those you hurt
When you come home what will you do
Now that your friends are gone there’s noone you’re talking to
And when you cry noone will hear
Now there’s nowhere to turn and you’re left standing here
When you come home, when you come home
When you come home, when you come home

Live Your Life

You hold onto something
Though you know it’s not right
Before you know it, forever’s flown by
And scared of the future
And all that it brings
You tiptoe through life and lose everything

But nothing is as it seems
Don’t ever stop chasing your dreams

Live your life
Don’t ever choose to hide
Don’t let nothing stand in your way
But take your time
All that you long to find
Could be out there and be yours someday

Promises broken
You take thing to heart
You want to move on but don’t know how to start

Failure is nothing new
You can’t control all that happens to you

And don’t you care
We all know life’s unfair
Sometimes, but just let it go
And don’t you cry
Or let your life pass by
Too fast, it’s all you have

Live your life
Don’t ever choose to hide
Don’t let nothing stand in your way
And don’t you care
We all know life’s unfair
Sometimes but just let it go

Here Alone

It’s a dark and lonely sound
That I hear, when noone’s around
It’s a world I left behind
It’s the peace I cannot find

It’s the words I couldn’t say
Can’t believe it turned this way
There’s a light you’ll never see
Now you don’t have the time for me

I know it all takes time
To let go of what was mine
And now it seems to me
I’ll always be, here alone
Here alone

It’s the fear inside of me
Takes my soul and never leaves
There’s a wound that doesn’t heal
From a touch I cannot feel

I know it all takes time
To let go of what was mine
And now it seems to me
I’ll always be, here alone
I’ll always be, here alone
Here alone
Here alone

The Boy Who…

He ain’t nobody special
He ain’t noone you’d know
He ain’t even around here now
Playing his one man show
But I just can’t forget him
No matter how hard I try
They say that time is a healer but
It passes slowly by
Passes slowly by

He’s just the boy who broke my heart
Just the one who tore it apart
Just the one I thought I’d be loving for life
He’s the just the boy I see at night
When I lay down and close my eyes
Just the boy who broke my
Boy who broke my heart

Every night is the same dream
And I can still see his face
Lost in the eyes that were searching mine
A love I can’t replace
It’s a love I can’t replace

He’s just the boy who broke my heart
Just the one who tore it apart
Just the one I thought I’d be loving for life
He’s the just the boy I see at night
When I lay down and close my eyes
Just the boy who broke my
Boy who broke my heart

Wake up every morning to the sound of his voice oh
And though I’ll never see him again, it’s like I have no choice

He’s just the boy who broke my heart
Just the one who tore it apart
Just the one I thought I’d be loving for life
He’s the just the one I see every night
When I lay down and close my eyes
Just the boy who broke my
Boy who broke my heart
Oh oh oh oh

He ain’t nobody special
He ain’t noone you’d know
He ain’t even around here now
Playing his one man show

New Years Day

You walk on winter’s frozen ground
The trees are bare, a storm surrounds
Thrown away all that you had
See the frost on mistletoe,
The burning embers watch them go
Believe that good comes out of bad
And don’t you feel sad

And chase the demons from your mind
You can leave them all behind
You don’t have to feel this way
Just believe you will be fine
Take my hand on New Years Day and say – you’re gonna change

And so another year has passed
These hollow feelings will not last
Give them up now you should try
Pain is something you don’t need
Lose yourself in errant dreams
Close the wounds and leave to dry
Cos you can’t turn back time

And chase the demons from your mind
You can leave them all behind
You don’t have to feel this way
Just believe you will be fine
Take my hand on New Years Day and say – you’re gonna change

Pull away the layers, see what lies within
You can try and reinvent, be somebody new
Don’t waste your time, on answers you can’t find….

And chase the demons from your mind
You can leave them all behind
You don’t have to feel this way
Just believe you will be fine
Take my hand on New Years Day and say
It’s New Years Day just say – you’re gonna change
You’re gonna change
You’re gonna change
You’re gonna change

Time to Grow

She said, I need time to grow
And this, this is all I know
I’ve been racing through the alleys
Racing through the fields in my mind
This is all that I have done today, but it’s enough

She said, life isn’t all I planned
Sometimes life is out of your hands
We’re all racing through the alleys
Racing through the fields in our mind
This is all that we can do today, but it’s enough

But it’s enough…
