What Tomorrow Brings

Lyrics and concept: T. Grose   /   Music: T. Grose / T. Yatras

SOLO: LT

And so I stand here so empty
Cool wind on my face, I’m alone
I stand on this ledge
The cars and the street far below

I feel I’ve reached the end
No life inside
How has it come to this?
I cry

So long ago I was filled with hope
My life laid out before me
How could it all go so wrong?
I remember how it all began…

“You’re going to have an amazing life.
You’ll grow up to big and strong and smart.
You can do anything, be anything you want to be.
Live and love and follow your dreams.
And I’ll be so proud. I’ll always be so proud of you.”

From the day that I was born
Surrounded by people who cared
Hopeful eyes of innocence
Spared from the darkness and free from despair

No stranger to love, a life far from rough
All hope for the future
A child free from harm, the world in my palm
Excited to see each day

And fumbled through those teenage years
The tears, the laughter and pain
Oh, like most everyone, when all’s said and done
I stumbled but found my way

It’s a journey
We see the whole world open wide
Ever learning
To be the best I can, my choices wise

The road that we walk down is our own
Life’s what we make of it
With open eyes we face the unknown
What tomorrow brings
The path than we choose is ours alone
A personal journey
Trust in fate, for which way to go
What tomorrow brings

SOLO: LT/MARK/LT/MARK

Then she came into my life
And I see the world in a whole new way
And she gave me so much more each day
I see the truth and now two are one
I’ll never walk alone again

SOLO: LT

We find a brand new way
Now three
Grow stronger day by day

And she I recognise
I look into my own eyes

SOLO: LT

In my memories I’m falling
A twisted scene of twisted steel, of blood and bone
I lie awake in sweat, a darkened ward, an empty bed
Wife and child are dead, how can this be real?

I’ve lost my life
My wife, my child
Why should I survive?

SOLO: LT / MARK

I survived, but now I’m dead inside

SOLOs: LT

And so I stand here so empty
Cool wind on my face, I’m alone
I stand on this ledge
The cars and the street far below

I feel I’ve reached the end
No life inside
How has it come to this?
I cry

So long ago now I lost all hope
One step to choose my fate
Say goodbye or turn and rebuild my life
Clawing my way to the light

It’s a journey
That leads to this single point in time
And I’m turning
One last step, the choice is mine

The road that we walk down is our own
Life’s what we make of it
With open eyes we face the unknown
What tomorrow brings
The path than we choose is ours alone
A personal journey
Trust in fate, for which way to go
What tomorrow brings

This was a monster of a song to do, and I explain a bit more about how it all came about on the RELEASE PAGE.


Haunted

Words / Music: M. Furtner

A mirror tells a tale true, of lost and broken dreams
The fear is etched across your face, in dark and dreary seams
A wailing from within your soul, an inner forlorn burn
Melancholy wasteland, never to return

Endless cry, an aching hearts desire
Forever screams in the night
Tear filled sigh, long lost loving fire
Unending pain takes his life

Torn asunder evermore, a haunted mind remains
To carry on devoid of light, wandering in the rain
Agony enveloping, a mesmerising hold
Screaming at these demons sent, for death but shall grow old

Endless cry, an aching hearts desire
Forever screams in the night
Tear filled sigh, long lost loving fire
Unending pain takes his life

Falling through this bleak abyss, crushing silent woe
Battling these sombre thoughts, perdition all my own
Time drifts by yet still I mourn, tormenting misery
Resigning now unto my fate, nightmare reality

SOLOs: Mark

Endless cry, an aching hearts desire
Forever screams in the night
Tear filled sigh, long lost loving fire
Unending pain takes his life

This song was originally written and recorded during the Digital Lies sessions but we held back because we already had a full album of songs. It had a very limited release as a free gift to people who bought items from our store in 2014 and we decided to finally give it a full commercial release for the general public as a bonus track on this EP.
