"The Spectrum" (2017)




Selfish lyrics - Daley

Think it's time to admit a few things
I've been feeling some way
About the cynical man I've become
Love can be such a difficult thing
And the pain that it brings
Can be confusing and leave you undone

And I'm here, but I'm gone
Just a space where I was
So I think that I'm done
But you should know that you did nothing wrong

You maybe wondering why I seem cold
I'm just being selfish, yeah, I'm on hold
I need to be cruel to be kind
And tell you what's on my mind
I need to be selfish
I, I need to be selfish
I need to be selfish

So, tell me please that this all makes sense?
Say that somehow this puts your mind at rest
'Cause this isn't me, who I wanna be
I'd never act so indifferently
But I can't even say that I'm sorry

That I'm here, but I'm gone
Just a space where I was
So I think that I'm done
But you should know that you did nothing wrong

You maybe wondering why I seem cold
I'm just being selfish, yeah, I'm on hold
I need to be cruel to be kind
And tell you what's on my mind
I need to be selfish

And it might be more than a minute that I need to take
It would be wrong for me to ask you to sit and wait
That would be selfish
No it's not like I'm calling this off for anybody else
No other reason, I just need a moment to myself
I need to be cruel to be kind
I need to be cruel to be kind

You maybe wondering why I seem cold
I'm just being selfish, yeah, I'm on hold
I need to be cruel to be kind
And tell you what's on my mind
I need to be selfish
I, I need to be selfish

Temple lyrics - Daley

Somewhere inside us
There's the desire to believe
Looking for guidance
Seeking some kind of relief

Tell me you're tired
Searching for comfort in vein
Lose all your idols
Find a religion in me

'Cause I know a place
(No church, still worship the same)
To find our faith
(Your love's all that's sacred to me, so...)

Meet me at the Temple
Meet me at the Temple
Meet me at the Temple
Meet me at the Temple
Meet me at the Temple

Behind the stone walls
We paint the wonders we need
As the gods of our own world
No love we make is a sin

Still, you better pray, you better pray
You better pray, you better pray, beside me
(Undress all your secrets with me)
'Cause a brighter day, after we lay, is promised
(Only if you worship with me)

Meet me at the Temple
Meet me at the Temple
Meet me at the Temple
Meet me at the Temple
Meet me at the Temple

(So meet me) at the Temple
Meet me at the Temple
Meet me at the Temple
Meet me at the Temple
Meet me at the Temple
Meet me at the Temple

(So meet me) at the Temple
Meet me at the Temple
Meet me at the Temple
Meet me at the Temple
Meet me at the Temple
Meet me at the Temple

Slow Burn lyrics - Daley

Maybe you've had your reservations
Or maybe it's all in my mind
Ohh I, I understand the hesitation
But give it some time

You can keep on playing your games with me
And I'll play them back to you
But if we keep beginning endlessly
That's all we'll ever do

We're turning an ember into flame
And I believe it's worth the wait
We're looking at a slow burn (slow burn)
It'll be hard I won't pretend
But I will be in it 'til the end
It's gonna be a slow burn (slow burn)

This is an epic in the making
A story that's never been told
So turn the page, don't be afraid
To let the inevitable unfold

If you're always chasing memories
Then we may not make it through
And if we keep beginning endlessly
That's all we'll ever do

We're turning an ember into flame
And I believe it's worth the wait
We're looking at a slow burn (slow burn)
It'll be hard I won't pretend
But I will be in it 'til the end
It's gonna be a slow burn (slow burn)

We don't have to rush to the end of this road
Take it slow
We can make it last in this fire we make
If we let it burn (if we let it burn)
If we let it burn (if we let it burn)

We're turning an ember into flame
And I believe it's worth the wait
We're looking at a slow burn (slow burn)
It'll be hard I won't pretend
But I will be in it 'til the end
It's gonna be a slow burn (slow burn)

We're turning an ember into flame
And I believe it's worth the wait
We're looking at a slow burn (slow burn)
It'll be hard I won't pretend
But I will be in it 'til the end
It's gonna be a slow burn (slow burn)

Sympathy lyrics - Daley (feat. Swindle)

I made it back to life
After a while recovering
When someone burns your pride
You know an ego's hard to mend

Was only tryna be nice
Took me all night to work the nerve
No need to patronise
I won't take less than I deserve
If I can't have it all don't give me

Sympathy, sympathy
I never asked for pity from you
Sympathy, sympathy
Cut me loose, don't be so cruel, oh

I know you mean no harm
And let me down so easy
Still to reject my charms
It's hard with no good reasoning

But don't worry it's cool
Just need to make you understand
That there's no substitute (no substitute)
Can't crush my heart then hold my hand
You can turn me down, just don't give me

Sympathy, sympathy
I never asked for pity from you
Sympathy, sympathy
Cut me loose, don't be so cruel, oh

Oh, you treat me so cold
You might as well go
I'd be better alone
Yeah, can't play with my pride
Then throw me aside
I'm here asking why

Oh, you treat me so cold
You might as well go
I'd be better alone
Yeah, can't play with my pride
Then throw me aside
I'm here asking why

Oh, you treat me so cold
You might as well go
I'd be better alone
Yeah

The Only One lyrics - Daley

Had your heart broken
You lost it all
Now you're afraid to climb down from the shelf
'Cause you're scared you'll fall again
How long can you live that way?
You're holding back, it's driving me away

It's fair to say some give and take is what we need
We both have stress in our lives and I'm dealing with mine
Well I'm trying, so don't take it out on me

'Cause you're not the only one, the only one
The only one with shh... on your mind
The street runs both ways, we've all had those days
And if you don't see my side, then I don't feel to try
'Cause you're not the only one, the only one
The only one who struggles sometimes
You're so full of yourself, but you won't get no help
'Til you realise, you're not the only one

You make it hard, so hard, difficult to the end
Why should I break my back?
When you refuse to bend your rules
I wanna make one from two again
But it's just so hard to do it, yeah
When you're not playing fair

So it's fair to say some give and take is what we need
We're all messed up in our ways, but I'm trying to change
Can you say the same?
Well don't take it out on me

'Cause you're not the only one, the only one
The only one with shh... on your mind
The street runs both ways, we've all had those days
And if you don't see my side, then I don't feel to try
'Cause you're not the only one, the only (one)
The only one who struggles sometimes
You're so full of yourself, but you won't get no help
'Til you realise, that you're not the only one

Oh no, so don't take it out on me
On me

The only one with shit on your mind
You're so full of yourself, but you won't get no help
'Til you realise, you're not the only one

On Fire lyrics - Daley

Taking about a thing you can't define
I'm so enamoured, with your mind, yeah
I really find it hard to keep away
Now it's too late to play it safe

You can't keep a moth away from a flame
'Cause I feel the heat the truth when I'm with you
Ends up being something more than just a game
I'm aware nobody does it like you do, is it only me

You set me on fire, you set me on
You set me on fire, you turn me on
You set me on fire, you set me on
You set me on fire, fire

So let me burn
It makes no difference, I never learn
Now all the other flames I used to know
I couldn't keep them, they had to go
I had to tell them all to stop, drop and roll

'Cause I feel the heat, the truth when I'm with you
Ends up being something more than just a game
I'm aware nobody does it like you do
Is it only me, yeah?

You set me on fire, you set me on
You set me on fire, you turn me on
You set me on fire, you set me on
You set me on fire, fire

So many summers passed tonight for you and I
Held in a daze our love emblazoned into time
Now it's begun, expand the sun, envelope me
You take me through, I burn for you
(You, you, you)
Oh I, I burn for you
(You, you, you)

Oh, you set me on fire, you set me on
You set me on fire, you turn me on
You set me on fire, you set me on
You set me on fire, fire

Set me on fire, set me on
Set me on fire, set me on
Set me on fire, set me on
Set me on fire, fire

Set me on fire, set me on
(Summers passed tonight for you and I)
Set me on fire, set me on
(In a daze our love emblazoned into time)
Set me on fire, set me on
(It's begun, expand the sun, envelope me)
Set me on fire, fire
(Take me through)

Second To None lyrics - Daley

Everybody's out of line, telling me what I need
Well I'm not blind, I see fine
Yeah, I'm where I'm supposed to be
A million things I have to do
But this distraction's really all I need
'Cause can't nothing compare to my number one priority
And if this ain't what we're here for then tell me what is

Maybe I'm wrong, maybe I'm foolish
A lifetime is a long time
So I might be crazy, but I don't put nothing before you
Without you to hold, this life don't mean nothing, no
And nothing comes close to being with you
'Cause you come second to none
Baby, second to none

I'm sleeping too late, never on time
You give me bad habits but it's alright
I give you all my days, ooh, and nights
To make it all good I'd give you my life
'Cause I'm caught up in a feeling that I can't escape
Losing my focus getting carried away in thoughts of you
Now everybody else I gotta put on hold
You're the only one you know you run the show
Yeah you're the one that I choose and
If this ain't what we're here for then I don't wanna know

Maybe I'm wrong and maybe, maybe I'm foolish
But a lifetime's a long, oh it's a long time
So I might be crazy, but I don't put nothing before you
Without you to hold, this life don't mean nothing, no
And nothing comes close to being with you
'Cause you come second to none

And I could have all the money in the world but
I might as well be dead broke
If I can't spend my time on you
'Cause there ain't nothing else I want
No, there ain't nothing worth all my intentions to you
I got a one-track mind you're the first in line, it's true

Maybe I'm wrong, maybe I'm foolish
A lifetime is a long time
So I might be crazy, but I don't put nothing before you
Without you to hold, this life don't mean nothing, no
And nothing comes close to being with you
'Cause you come second to none
'Cause you come second to none
'Cause you come second to none
'Cause you come second to none
'Cause you come second to none

True lyrics - Daley

I may not have what you need
But I could get it for you
It may not be all you expected
But what you get it will be true
And I won't try to impress you
'Cause you'll see everything in the end
No I won't try to undress you
'Til there's no doubt that I'm a friend

We're only here for one minute
Just a drop in oceans blue
So in my time while I'm here
I wanna spend it being true
I wanna spend it being true

So, lift your eyes up from the wheel
Take some time to catch that view
Before it passes you by now
'Cause moments lost you can't undo
Show me only your soul
Shed your layers not your tears
It's in our hearts to evolve
But we don't have a billion years

'Cause we're only here for one minute
We're a drop in oceans blue
So in my time while I'm here

I wanna spend it being true
I wanna spend it being true
Spend it being true
To this moment, be devoted

'Cause we're only here for one minute
So in my time while I'm here
I wanna spend it (I wanna spend it)
I wanna spend it (I wanna spend it)
I wanna spend it, spend it being

Distance lyrics - Daley

You can't climb a mountain range
And not look over the edge
You can't run half of the way
And not finish off the race

There is something incomplete
When our love is out of reach
We should elevate this feeling
Traverse all the in between

I want you in this life
I wanna know what it feels like
We've come too far to give up
I wanna go the distance

One day we'll look back on all of this
Realise we had all we ever needed
And we'll wonder why we were worried about the things
That never really mattered to be begin with

What if we could grow old together, mold together?
Stay bold together, through whatever?
That would be so sweet

I want you in this life
I wanna know what it feels like
We've come too far to give up
I wanna go the distance

And since there's no guarantee the future's on our side
We should embrace the love we feel
'Cause we run parallel through life
This could transcend space and time
If you take the leap with me

I want you in this life
I wanna know what it feels like
We've come too far to give up
I wanna go the distance

In this life, this life, this life
I wanna know what it feels like
Give up
I wanna go the distance

The Fabric (For Richard) lyrics - Daley

What is this feeling? It's strange to me
Hard to believe it, that you're no longer here
To guide and teach me
I thought there'd always be more time

For understanding to overcome
Our circumstances and make time for all the things
We took for granted
Before we lost you to the skies

But in the long run, you'll be alright
This is one front, in space and time
Wherever you go, feel peace my friend
'Cause you're loved everlasting
And you'll live on in the fabric

Within the threads of our lives
Woven your magic, through your absence you will guide
Still no less tragic we have to say goodbye
And still we grieve, and still we cry

But in the long run, we'll be alright
This is just one test, we have to try
And when it's all done, we'll meet again
And we'll be one in the fabric
Yeah, we'll live on in the fabric

How do I begin to say thank you for all that you've done for me, for me?
Now we love harder because of you
You're part of everything we do, in the fabric
Forever part of the fabric
Forever part of the fabric
Forever part of the fabric
You are, you are forever part of the fabric
You are, you are forever part of the fabric
You are, you are forever part of the fabric

Careless lyrics - Daley (feat. Chiiild)

So much time, spent telling me lies
I was blind enough to believe
All the signs, led me into denial
Far from the reality

There's no disguise, that could cover this up
You're reckless in the way you love
So it's time, now the damage is done
It's clear you never cared enough, so

So, don't tell me things you don't mean in the night
Wake up the next day and tell me you lied
I'd never let myself do you that way
Play with your feelings then throw them away

I guess I could if I was careless
If I was careless
I guess I could if I was careless
If I was careless (less)

So much time, spent telling me lies
I was blind enough to believe
All the signs, led me into denial
Far from the reality

There's no disguise, that could cover this up
You're reckless in the way you love
So it's time, now the damage is done
It's clear you never cared enough, so

So, don't tell me things you don't mean in the night
Wake up the next day and tell me you lied
I'd never let myself do you that way
Play with your feelings then throw them away

I guess I could if I was careless
If I was careless
I guess I could if I was careless
If I was careless (less)

Play with your feelings then throw them away

I guess I could if I was careless
If I was careless
I guess I could if I was careless
If I was careless (less)

"Days And Nights" (2014)




Time Travel lyrics - Daley

They say live within the moment
Cause there's nothing else but now
But I'm sleepless and it's over
So somebody show me how

I can get back to a feeling
That existed in the past
Find somebody with some meaning
Try to equal what we had

I wanna go
All the way, all the way
All the way back...
All the way, all the way
All the way

All I really need
Is time travel and you
Don't know what this is
We're travelling through
All the memories
Unravel with you
So all I really need
Is time travel
And you...
And you...

It's the silence that will save us
Now all too much has been said
We no longer know the people
That we cling to on the bed

Is it beyond reparation?
Does this have to be the end?
In an alternate dimension
Maybe we could start again

I wanna go
All the way, all the way
All the way back...
All the way, all the way
All the way

All I really need
Is time travel and you
Don't know what this is
We're travelling through
All the memories
Unravel with you
All I really need
Is time travel
All I really need
Is time travel
All I really need
Is time travel

Look Up lyrics - Daley

I know, I know, I know
That you're not happy here
You don't need to say it
It shows, it shows, it shows
It's all over your face
You can't erase it no

I wish that we could face
The things that hold us back
Before we fade to black
Instead we choose to chase
The things we know won't last
There's so much we lack

But something keeps me hanging on
Yeah some feelings they never go, so

Look up...
And if the stars should fall from the sky
I will put them all back in time
So you know that when they shine
They shine for you
Oh oh, yes they do, they do

Those words that we don't say
They make the biggest sounds
They call us out, yeah
Cause there are quiet truths and pains
And we both feel them now
But still we love somehow

I wish that we could face
The things that hold us back
Before we fade to black
Instead we choose to chase
The things we know won't last
They never last

But something keeps me hanging on
Yeah some feelings just never go, so

Look up...
And if the stars should fall from the sky
I will put them all back in time
So you know that when they shine
They shine for you
Oh oh, yes they do, they do

Believe me
I love you in my way
Ooh, what more can I say
It's constant as the stars
Although we're lost in space
So if separate ways we go
I hope somehow you'll know
Whatever circumstance
You will be in my soul
(You will be in my soul, in my soul)
In my soul

And if the stars should fall from the sky
I will put them all back in time
So you know that when they shine
They shine for you
Oh oh, yes they do
