Do I shield my face from the light? Do I live my life as a lie? Do I have time to rectify the wrong to right? Tonight, I don't have time for this It's easy to hide your shadow in the dark of night But daytime comes and brings everything to light Do I hide my face with a lie? Do I live my life in the light Do I have time to rectify the wrong to right? Tonight, I don't have time for this

Taken down for a spell Something doesn't quite make sense Squinting to get focus Hedge your bets and climb the fence I've never been here before But I could get used to this Been knocking at your door Looking for some kind of bliss It never gets old Putting up with myself Something to get used to Do not rest here Buckle up and pass right through Can't find the shift to cruise to control Can't get off, can't turn it round Lose the world and gain my soul

You call yourself a decent friend Always with an ear to lend Giving me a helping hand You said you'd always understand And I don't know what I'm supposed to have done And I don't know what I'm doing here And I don't know how it came undone No I don't know Something isn't making sense Things are getting too intense Ok I think I catch your drift It wasn't meant to be like this

So here I am again Same everything Staring at the same walls and putting down my thoughts Is this home? Is this where I am meant to be? Another day in the role of me Wondering what to do with myself I know there's a reason But only time will tell Social rings closing in Although it's early days Drinking, flirting with who's near Candles light the space Staring away Trying to think what to say Sitting on my own On the outside looking in Some ask if I'm alright Some just say goodbye And it's all so amusing Seeing just the same again If you could see through my eyes You'd be smiling inside

Fade away Efforts futile playing games It stays the same Don't know why but I still feel like You're to blame You promised me that you'd be there I hide the pain It all falls down and finally I see I don't know where to go Don't know what to do with myself Let it go It all falls down and finally I see Another day Empty, lonely, gone astray More of the same I start to see that in the end I am to blame I'll follow you through thick and thin It's not a game I give it all to you and now I I won't feel this way All alone I was blinded by my own hand Goes to show You should look a little harder as you go

And now you've got me all sussed out Oh you're astute I do not doubt Didn't even think you might be wrong And now the star of your own song Get off my back give me some room, I need some breathing space You knock me down leave me for dead I'm not dead yet Somehow you've got me all uptight I won't go down without a fight You will not have the best of me Give it a go just wait and see

Was gonna make my way through all this fog Pretty sure I was headed the right way way back there And I thought I knew just who I was But you're not supposed to be able to drown in thin air I have no choice but to go on Barely strength enough to sing this song I have no inspiration, just left with desparation I am a stranger in my head And now the light is playing games The shadows shift fake landmarks everywhere And I thought I knew just who you were Through it all all I wanted was to hear you scream my name I want to fly You're gonna fly

Pacing forwards A battle in my mind I'm fighting a battle in my life Held back the tears so many times There must be a river inside Help me I'm running away from You And I don't even know I didn't Know that I'm so tired Of what I see in me Pacing circles A battle for my mind I'm losing a battle for my life I've cried so many times The river must run dry In fear I crawl to the shadows of my mind I live a secret, live a lie So why do I tremble in the dark? When I've got nothing to hide See me I'm beautiful to You Beautiful right through And You You always let me know You always tell me so I'm beautiful

I am the king of the laissez faire I could change my mind but I don't wanna go there I want you close I want you out of my hair Every word you speak lays my intentions bare And it's always You Here's your chance to come and listen in If you don't know what to say you can fake a grin I have every intention of acting on the slightest whim I can't believe your patience isn't wearing thin And it's always You So many things I do turn out paper thin I had no idea that this was sink or swim I'm praying against this tendency not to care Gonna make it this time, this time I swear And it's always You

You wasted all your time Sat there thinking about her She wasted all your time Couldn't think of anything Better to be doing So you sat and dreamt your life away And oh, it goes on Sit back and comprehend This is how the story goes Ten years on from now you'll be Wishing all the time That it didn't have to be Such a part of you And oh, it goes on There's a million other people With exactly this complaint I don't claim to be unique But for all the cautionary tales That have been told There'll be another right along And oh, it goes on and on and on Good memories Built a dream and then it died Let it go, let her go He will give you something better

How 'bout this now Turn around another day More to do but fear just gets up In my face and in my way It's the fear that leads me on There to push me on It needs to be there But I cannot move 'cause now I'm scared I can't do this on my own You should see it from up here I can see for miles around You should be the one up here It's a whole new world now Debilitating Is this the reason for today I'm lost without a trace but should I Make it something worth the pain I have a tendency to fall Not the will to learn The inch I give does not Deserve the mile I get returned How 'bout this now The situation's do or die I'm bereft of all that's left it's just This thorn that's twisting in my side It would seem my best laid plans Have seen better days Well, oh well, what the hell Let's give it some now anyways

Monday you're more than I can bear And I don't even know You're there M'aidez no thoughts to see me through And I don't know what I can do Will I put my trust in You Wednesday more feelings of despair And I don't even seem to care Today was more than I could bear And I'm starting over again I remember way back when Waiting for God to get me through M'aidez no thoughts to see me through Jesus is my hope Jesus my only hope

about

strangeday England, UK

We're strangeday, a rock band based in Kent.

We've been together since 2000 and we've had an interesting journey, with pauses for various things like university and family along the way.

Recently, though, we've been finishing 10 songs which we are releasing one at a time in 2013. We think they're the best work we've done yet and would love as many people as possible to hear them.
