Taken By The Sea lyrics - Darren Hayes

love, lay me down
slay me with whispers
reassure me that it’s alright
I, I hit the deck, I hit rock bottom
but you saw me, then you caught me
shining like a ray of hope
swift like a turning sea
angel to comfort me
cradling my head in your hands
I looked up at the sun
and the fog cleared, I saw you

and I want you and that’s so terrifying
and I want you to help put out the fire
cause I am an island, you are the ocean
and all of my sadness taken by the sea

fall, I took a fall
I took it easy
on the surface I was perfect
but down, way down below
I started believing
I deserved it
was I worthless
sinking like a rescue boat
washing right over me
vessel is struggling
waving both my hands in the air
then the blindness of love
then your arms all around me

and I want you and that’s so terrifying
and I want you to help put out the fire
cause I am an island, you are the ocean
and all of my sadness taken by the sea

and I want so much to believe
that I won’t disappear in the water
that I won’t always be swimming against the tide

and I want you and that’s so terrifying
and I want you to help put out the fire
cause I am an island and you are the ocean
and all of my sadness taken by the sea, the sea
I am an island, you are the ocean
all of my sadness taken by the sea



Don't Give Up lyrics - Darren Hayes

It's six o clock and I'm wide awake and dreaming
I'm thinking back to a time before our separate lives
A time where I could make you mine oooh
I made a promise I was never gonna hurt you
I wrote a letter and divided all the words in two
half for me and half for you oooh

Now I'm sending out a searchlight along latitudes and satellites

Don't give up don't give up don't give up on our love story when you can't go on
Don't give up don't give up always dark before the morning when you can't go on
you be a brave heart I'll be a lion's roar
and love surrenders to win the war

In the silence I hear every word you're thinking
Like the shimmer of a far away and distant star
Guess love could never travel that far no
And I can't believe it's come to this
all our secret codes and battleships

Don't give up don't give up don't give up on our love story when you can't go on
Don't give up don't give up always dark before the morning when you can't go on
you be a brave heart I'll be a lion's roar
and love surrenders to win the war

And I wanna run away from this but I never leave a sinking ship no
without you in it there's no point to our story oooh

And I can't believe it's come to this
all our secret codes and battleships no
without you in it there's no point to our story oooh

Don't ever let me go no no no
Don't ever let me go
Don't ever let me go
Don't ever let me go



Nearly Love lyrics - Darren Hayes

In my eyes
Well your gaze always ends up there
There’s a touch of the insincere
But you can always tell I’m lying

Fighting words
Well nobody is keeping score
But we’re winning a cold, cold war
And I feel so cowardly

And now I love you, love you
Only slightly less than I loved you, loved you
And it’s hard to confess but my nearly love is not real enough
To be the one
To be the one

In your touch
Well your body can move in close
But my heart is a lonesome ghost
I’d never feel you anyway

And now I love you, love you
Only slightly less than I loved you, loved you
And it’s hard to confess but my nearly love is not real enough
To be the one
To be the one

And now I love you, love you
Only slightly less than I loved you, loved you
And my heart’s in a mess cause my nearly love is not real enough
To be the one
To be the one

Love you, love you
Only slightly less than I loved you, love you, love you
And it’s hard to confess but my nearly love is not real enough
To be the one
To be the one

And now I love you, love you
Only slightly less than I loved you, loved you
And my heart’s in a mess cause my nearly love is not real enough
To be the one
To be the one



Black Out The Sun lyrics - Darren Hayes

No turn off the sun
Take down the moon
For I don't need them anymore
Go switch off the stars
And paint the sky black
Love isn't ever coming back
There is no use in imagining a world without you
Your love was like a drug I was addicted to

[Chorus:]
Cause there is nobody else who could hurt like you hurt me
I don't want to be lonely
And there is no other way
There's no joy
There's no meaning
Just this hollowed out feeling
Now all the loves gone
And nothing grows here
And I just feel wrong so black out the sun
And all that we shared will slowly disappear
There's a hole where my soul used to grow
So just black out the sun

No stop all the rain and poison the ground
Love doesn't want to hang around
Go turn all the fruits into bitter wine
It was only sweet when you were mine
There is an emptiness inside of me
Since you been gone
All the world has lost it's meaning
All my colors run

[Chorus]

And nothing compares
How could it even dare
Cause now that love's gone I want to black out the sun

[Chorus]


Talk Talk Talk lyrics - Darren Hayes

I know you keep your silence.
I know that secret better than you.
Sometimes all the matters of the heart
Are the chaos and the cowardice that keep us apart.
I know you want to shut down.
I know you think we're better alone.
Sometimes all the words are unsaid,
But you listen to them argue every night in your head.

Just breathe in and out.
'Cause all I want to do is just talk talk talk to you.
Please hear me out.
'Cause all I want to do is just talk talk talk to you.

I know that you've been pushed down.
I know you think we're better as two.
Sometimes, well, the miracle of love is meaningless
And clumsy like the beating of a heart.

Just breathe in and out.
'Cause all I want to do is just talk talk talk to you.
Please hear me out.
'Cause all I want to do is just talk talk talk.
Calling out-
Got to hear an echo got to get to you.
When I'm walking out-
All I want to do is just talk talk talk to you.

Well you can hide away your feelings.
And burn your bridges in the dark.
But I know you want to break through.
But we're worlds apart.

Just breathe in and out.
'Cause all I want to do is just talk talk talk to you.
Please hear me out.
'Cause all I want to do is just talk talk talk.
And I'm calling out-
I've got to hear an echo; got to get to you.
When I'm walking out-
Well all I want to do is just talk talk talk to you, yeah.



Bloodstained Heart lyrics - Darren Hayes

Love, you're in pieces
There's no one left to lay you down
Or say it's okay
On the worst night, of the worst year
Though we might fall, we'll go out punching

You hit me like a subway train
And I will never be the same
And darling I'll follow you down to the ground
Even when you fall apart, I'll pick up your bloodstained heart
And darling I'll follow you down to the ground

In the gutter
Where you're starless, and blind to dreams
We can dream each other
To a new day
Where the good guys always win
And heaven still means something

You hit me like a subway train
And I will never be the same
And darling I'll follow you down to the ground
Even when you fall apart, I'll pick up your bloodstained heart
And darling I'll follow you down to the ground

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Love, when you're in pieces
There's no one left to dry your eyes

You hit me like a subway train
And I will never be the same
Oh darling I'll follow you down to the ground
Even when you fall apart, I'll pick up your bloodstained heart
Ooh darling I'll follow you down to the ground, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh [to end]

God Walking Into The Room lyrics - Darren Hayes

You and I
We got splintered
Cut in two like earth and the sky
I say a prayer in the distance
That my faith in love will survive

My friends tell me I should look around for somebody new
But they don’t know you
They don’t understand the gravity I’ve fallen into
‘Cause I still feel you

‘Cause you bring me love
You lift me up
And every time we kiss is like God walking into the room
Forgive me, love
Can’t give you up
Every time we kiss is like God walking into the room

Can I make
A confession?
I’m lighting candles for you and I
I pray for a love resurrection
And all the things we lost in the fire

Oh, my friends tell me I should look around for somebody new
But they don’t know you
They don’t look into your eyes or tremble like I do
Every time I see you

‘Cause you bring me love
You lift me up
Every time we kiss is like God walking into the room
Forgive me, love
Can’t give you up
Hand upon the Bible
Your love is survival I tell you

I’ve never felt this before
My soul never falls to the floor
You look right to me
Like God walking into the room
Like it’s meant to be

You and I
We were splintered
Cut in two like earth and the sea
I say a prayer that in the distance
My faith in love will bring you back to me

You bring me love
You lift me up
And every time we kiss is like God walking into the room
Forgive me, love
Can’t you give up
My hand’s upon the Bible
Your love is survival, I tell you

I’ve never felt this before
My soul never falls to the floor
You look right to me
Like God walking into the room
Like it’s meant to be


Hurt lyrics - Darren Hayes

If you want something broke you better give it to me
Got a way of disappointing that you wouldn’t believe
I can take a good intention and turn it on its head
I can make you pray to God and wish we’d never met

Nobody knows where this razor has been
If you want something broke you better give it to me

Because I can make you hurt
I can take you down so low I’ll make you want to cry
I can make you say goodbye
I can make you hurt
I can take you down so low and then you’ll know that maybe
You’d be better off when I’m not around

You’d be better off with somebody else
So put me back on the shelf

See I’m the kind of person who can barely be loved
I solve every equation with a push and a shove
Now that I love you I’m afraid it’s too late
If you get too close I’ll only push you away

I can make you hurt
I can take you down so low I’ll make you want to cry
I can make you say goodbye
I can make you hurt
I can take you down so low and then you’ll know that maybe
You’d be better off when I’m not around

I was better lost before I was found
I’ve got a history of misery so baby listen to me
Put me back on the shelf and give this pain to somebody else

Cause I can make you hurt
I can take you down so low I’ll make you want to cry
I can make you say goodbye
I can make you hurt
I can take you down so low and then you’ll know that maybe
You’d be better off when I’m not around

I can make you cry
I can make you say goodbye
I can make you hurt
I can take you down so low and then you’ll know that maybe
You’d be better off when I’m not around





Roses lyrics - Darren Hayes

What if I told you that your time was up,
That as every second passes there's a moment gone,
And in twenty three hours the sun is gonna set, forever.

Would you hug a little tighter, would you let go first,
Would you focus on love and then forget the hurt,
Living the moment and wish your life away.

How would you spend your last night on earth,
Would you kiss your enemies say sorry first,
Would you take enough time to say your last goodbyes.

All the little battles that you never won,
All the music in the opera never sung,
Emotions that were silent all these years,

You can't smell the roses when you're gone,
You can't smell the roses, no it's not a rehearsal,
You only get one life so make it right,
You can't smell the roses when you're gone,
So live every moment like it's the last night on earth,
Cause this is the last night on earth.

What if I told you that I had regrets,
I would trade in all my happiness for one last kiss,
For a minute or two lying by your side.

What if I chose over nobody more,
If I uttered only promises with empty talk,
If I knew back then the things that I know now.

I would tell you that I love you then we'd all get low,
There are peaks and there are valleys, you've got to have known,
A second chance, it rarely comes around.

You can't smell the roses when you're gone,
You can't smell the roses, no it's not a rehearsal,
You only get one life so make it right,
You can't smell the roses when you're gone,
So live every moment like it's the last night on earth.

If I could have my time again,
I would make sure you knew just how I feel,
Somewhere I wait for much too long,
And the seasons change without me.

You can't smell the roses when you're gone,
You can't smell the roses, no it's not a rehearsal,
You only get one life so make it right,
You can't smell the roses when you're gone,
So live every moment like it's the last night on earth,
As if it's the last night on earth,
Cause this is the last night for love.



Stupid Mistake lyrics - Darren Hayes

I don't wanna love and
I don't want anybody else
Anybody else to either

I don't want faith
I don't wanna start another war
A kingdom for my crowd of believers

Did I lose my calling
Did I lose you
Don't lovers always get what they want?

[Chorus:]
I made a stupid mistake
And my world crashed down
All around me oh oh
I made a stupid mistake
And I threw it all away
Threw it all away
I got lazy on the wrong side of love
Now I'm searching every face
Every crowd for you for you
For you for you

I don't wanna stain
I don't want your love upon my hands
But I don't understand what I'm leaving

I don't wanna pray
I don't want a forgivenss from above
When none of this was of my believing

Did I choose to fall down
Did I lose you
Don't lovers always get what they want

[Chorus]

I've been walking around with my head in the dirt
I've been stripped of everything that ever made me converse
I've been lonely
I've been searching
The crowd for you for you
For you for you

I got lazy on the wrong side of love
I was stupid sold my kingdom for a war with you
Oh with you oh oh oh oh oh oh

[Chorus]

You don't want love
You don't want anybody else to either



Cruel, Cruel World lyrics - Darren Hayes

I don't know how I'm supposed to feel
Without my tiny little pills
Sudden emotions
I have awoken
I'm wet behind the ears
To find myself in such a cruel cruel world
And nobody gets me
Nobody gets me
Nobody gets me like you
And everyone left me
Everyone left me
Everyone left me but you
You're the only one
The only one
The only who gets through
And when my hope is gone
I'm feeling numb
The only one I let though is you
You
You get me through
You get me through this cruel cruel world

It's been a battle for too long
And all my happiness has gone
Kindness erases a city of strangers
Deep down in my bones
All I wanna do is crawl back home to you
Cause nobody gets me
Nobody gets me
Nobody gets me like you
Everyone left me
Everyone left me
Everyone left me but you
And you're the only one
The only one
The only who gets through
And when my hope is gone
I'm feeling numb
The only one I let though is you
You
You get me through
You
You can get me through this cruel cruel world
This cruel cruel world

Ooooh

Cause you're the only one
The only one
The only one who gets through
And when my hope is gone
I'm feeling numb
The only one I let through is you
Is you
You
You get me through
You
You can get me through this cruel cruel world
This cruel cruel world



The Siren's Call lyrics - Darren Hayes

Tie me up against the mast and shield the sunlight from my eyes
I no longer can resist the haunting of her cries
They call me from the jagged rock
It was the sweetest melody
Like gold and honey dripping from the fingertips of God
I feel the wind against my face from the flapping of her wings
I feel the black and silky tenderness all choking me

But I can almost taste happiness
It's such a long way off
But I can almost feel your embrace
Above the siren's call

Now it's not beautiful or pure
But it exists beyond the shore
It struggles to be heard above the screeching of her call
Beneath my feet a rumbling
A hundred demons clambering
They chase away my harmony and make love afraid to call
They grow forever restless and as our ship sets out to sea
No they will not be silenced
Never for you or me

But I can almost taste happiness
It's such a long way off
But I can almost feel your embrace
Above the siren's call

And I've seen a hint of it
This happiness
This bliss
Just knowing it exists I know that I must try
And I've caught a glimpse of it
One moment just one kiss
From the corner of my eye
Of better days gone by

But I can almost taste happiness
But I can almost feel your embrace



Explode lyrics - Darren Hayes

You and I, we're falling over straight lines
Straight ahead, ignoring all the danger signs
And it's something that I knew before
I knew before, oh
In the dark, a supernova can't keep
A burning sun from changing into something new
And it's for the best, but the best for who?
I wish I knew, oh

This is the sound of my heartbeat falling
This is the sound of my love recalling
This is the sound of the dogs, they're howling
Calling to the moon

Can we explode
And come back together like the rising sun?
We'll be as one
Can we explode?
We'll rearrange the pieces in a different light
We'll make it right
Can we explode?
And take the total sum of us and make it one
Thy will be done
Can we explode?
All the missing parts of me are parts of you
We'll make it through

You and I, we hurt each other so deep
The track lines
The finger nails are down my spine
Has it got so hard we have to sew it up?
Oh, give it in
Oh

This is the sound of my love imploding
This is the sound of the years dissolving
This is the sound of my love hound howling
Calling to the moon.

Can we explode
And come back together like the rising sun?
We'll be as one
Can we explode?
We'll rearrange the pieces in a different light
We'll make it right
Can we explode?
And take the total sum of us and make it one
Thy will be done
Can we explode?
All the missing parts of me are parts of you
We'll make it through.

And all the pieces of love will find one another
And all the words left unsaid will say one another
There's a fire in me and a flame in my brother
From a tiny little spark to love

Can we explode?
Can we explode?

This is the sound of my heartbeat falling
(This is the sound)
This is the sound of my love recalling
(Oh, this is the sound)
This is the sound of the dogs, they're howling
(Oh no)
Calling to the moon

Oh, can we explode
And come back together like the rising sun?
(Like the rising sun)
We'll be as one
Can we explode?
We'll rearrange the pieces in a different light
We'll make it right
Can we explode?
And take the total sum of us and make it one
Thy will be done
Can we explode?
All the missing parts of me are parts of you
We'll make it through
Oh, can we explode?


Perfect lyrics - Darren Hayes

Your love is a sonnet written on an empty shore
Sealed into a bottle and lost at sea.
Your love is an army trying to apologize
Your love is a soldier tired of war.

And all it could have been is like a symbol in the sand
And all our wasted love is like a language I don't understand.

But our love was perfect.
Pieces of a puzzle lying on the floor.
Beginning and ending
A story that continues never, evermore.

Your love is a whisper trying to become a roar.
Your love is a child crying out for more.

And all it could have been is like a symbol in the sand
And all our wasted love is like a language I don't understand.

Cause our love was perfect.
Pieces of a puzzle lying on the floor.
Beginning and ending
A story that continues never, evermore.

Cause I felt it
It cut deep.
It left a scar in my memory.
But your love was burned into me.

You've been hiding away
You've been hiding away.

And all it could have been is like a symbol in the sand.
And all our wasted love is like a language I don't understand.

But our love was perfect.
Pieces of a puzzle lying on the floor.
Beginning and ending...
A story that continues never, evermore.
(Never, evermore.)
Cause our love was perfect.
Pieces of a puzzle lying on the floor.
Beginning and ending...
A story that continues never, evermore.

(Oh...)
Our love...
(You've been hiding away)
Perfect.
(You've been hiding away)
Our love...
(You've been hiding away)
Perfect.
(You've been hiding away)
Our love...
(You've been hiding away)
Perfect.
(You've been hiding away)
