New Young Guns album lyrics

'Bones', Young Guns second album, is due to be released on Monday 6th February 2012.


Although I desperately want to share this amazing album with you all, I don't want to upload the tracks to youtube for two reasons:

  1. People will just use their youtube converters to illegally download the songs, resulting in the band losing money and the possibility of placing in the album charts.
  2. Youtube will undoubtedly delete the videos due to copyright grounds soon after posting it.
I've written up all of the tracks lyrics however (which are amazing) and have decided to share that with you instead.

Enjoy!

I Was Born, I Have Lived, I Will Surely Die

I was born, I have lived, I will surely die
Facing defeat I'm still holding my head up high
Been decieved into thinking that it's alright
I just needed a reason to reach for the light
Now I've opened, opened, my eyes, now I see it
The light, and I need it

There's no doubt you can get yourself out if you want to
Don't turn away, don't be shy, you've got questions, so do I
Every day is a chance to change the story

Don't run away, take a shot, give it everything you've got
Without pain, tell me what's the point in glory?
Yesterday just a boy, now I stand a man
I'm out on the edge feathers clutched in my hand and I know
That a time will come when all is done

Nothing will remain and so it goes

There's no doubt you can get yourself out if you want to
When you're out on the edge, if the current calls you
Then jump 'cos to fall is beneath you, don't turn away, don't be shy
You've got questions, so do I
Every day is a chance to change the story
Don't run away, take a shot, give it everything you've got
Without pain, tell me what's the point in glory?

Dearly Departed

Oh dust and bones
That I have left behind
Are monuments to those I used to know

At least I know where I am on my own

I wanna be the last thing that you see
Be my dearly departed
Back to when you were the only thing
I need
Before I gave up, my dearly departed
Gave up, my dearly departed

Your sticks and stones, are all that I've ever known 
I'm bruised but I'm not broken and I know

At least I know where I am on my own

I wanna be the last thing that you see
Be my dearly departed
Back to when you were the only thing
I need
Before I gave up, my dearly departed
Gave up, my dearly departed

None of the people who tried to could make me feel this way
I'll gladly do my time, I found you, unbound you, and tried to
Explain the only way, that I knew how to say

I wanna be the last thing that you see
Be my dearly departed
Back to when you were the only thing I need
I wanna be the last thing that you see
My dearly departed
I wanna be the last thing that you see
My dearly departed
I wanna be the last thing that you see
My dearly departed
I wanna be the last thing that you see
My dearly departed


Down under the night sky
I lay in wait
Pray to whoever  would listen to me
I'd fashioned my own cross
Been crushed by its weight
There's no stronger message 
Than dirt in your face

I've seen down the end of the road
Now I deal in a different story
And I will never go back again
I feel it in my bones, I feel it in my bones
I'll do this on my own

They say the spirit's willing, but the flesh is always weak
Well I found everything I needed, underneath my skin

I've seen down the end of the road
Now I deal in a different story
And I will never go back again
I feel it in my bones, I feel it in my bones
I'll do this on my own

We're all architects of our own private hell
No-one can hurt us like we hurt ourselves

I've seen down the end of the road
Now I deal in a different story
And I will never go back again
I feel it in my bones, I feel it in my bones
And I know I'm not alone

Towers (On My Way)

Hello again, my dear old friend
Is it that time again, is this the end?
The beat goes on and on, with such sweet grace
But I'm just out of time, I'm out of place

I found rebellion in self destruction
I need to find a place to lay my head
I walk then I crawl, I'm thankful to be moving at all
Considering all the place, I've been on the way
Some people build towers, I just dig holes
On my way down again, hey

On my back in the gutter and I've seen this place before
How do you make it look so easy when the wolves are at the doors?
Contrition is, a bed fellow of mine, in my defence
I'm wasted, the beat goes on and on and on
I couldn't stop it even if I tried

I found rebellion in self destruction
I need to find a place to lay my head
I walk then I crawl, I'm thankful to be moving at all
Considering all the place, I've been on the way
Some people build towers, I just dig holes
On my way down again, I walk then I crawl
I'm thankful to be moving at all, considering all the places
I've been on the way

A Hymn For All I've Lost

Can't feel my faith held in
Keep my mouth shut anymore
Oh it's impossible

Where do I fit in
When no matter where I stand I still fall?
I'm on the outside looking in

Can't keep my mouth held shut
Keep my tired eyes open anymore
Stuck on the outside looking in

I sing the same old song
A hymn for all I've lost

You Are Not

Lonely, lonely, undefined
You say you take your time, I say you hide away
Lonely, lonely, hard to shine when they don't notice you at all
Sink further every day

You're only, so lonely
And I never had a doubt, you don't even know me
Still you pass your judgement out, when you belong
You're just a face in the crowd, You're only
Lonely, so lonely, like everybody else

Lonely lonely, little fly, you say they pay no mind
I say there's no better way, you hang yourself in your web
Drawn and quartered out, there more you hurt
The more you heal, the more you'll figure out 

You're only, so lonely
And I never had a doubt, you don't even know me
Still you pass your judgement out, when you belong
You're just a face in the crowd, You're only
Lonely, so lonely, like everybody else

You are not a diamond, you are not a shining star
Doesn't mean that you're not perfect, exactly as you are

You're only so lonely, and I never had a doubt
You don't even know me, still you pass your judgement out
When you belong, you're just a face in the crowd
You're only, lonely, so lonely
Like everybody else


Got my head out of the window
I can taste the summer air
Hangs heavy with the promise of nights beyond compare
We start ,we stop, we break and then we mend
What's a little bit of blood loss between friends

You say you don't need love, I say you ain't so tough
Come on and let me in

Brother in arms
Together we, spill our blood, on foreign streets
Worlds apart, and in too deep, my brother in arms
I wouldn't change a thing 

We celebrate our sickness as it starts to spread
Cut my heart out it's not over until you take my head

You say you don't need love, I say you ain't so tough
Come on and let me in

Brother in arms
Together we, spill our blood, on foreign streets
Worlds apart, and in too deep, my brother in arms
I wouldn't change a thing 

All hands on deck we live or die, together, no matter
How far we fall apart, we bleed together
Brother in arms
Together we, spill our blood, on foreign streets
Worlds apart, and in too deep
My brother in arms
I wouldn't change a thing 


I
Am a wavering candle light
I remain but I'm ever slight
Through all my years
I sit in my room in the fading light
Righting back all my wrongs tonight
Cos I'm still here

Boarded up all the doors
And I swallowed all the keys
I'm still haunted by
All the things I'll never be

To live
Is to learn
Oh the heart's a heavy burden
So I take
I don't wait
Nothing ever is for certain
And I hold my hands up high
On my knees tonight
I'll take
Won't wait
I will live and learn my lesson here tonight

Never knew it could be so cold
But I burnt all the things I used to hold so dear
Still I fight
With my pen in my hand held tight
Writing protest songs tonight cos I'm still here

Boarded up all the doors
And I swallowed all the keys
I'm still haunted by
All the things I'll never be

To live
Is to learn
Oh the heart's a heavy burden
So I take
I don't wait
Nothing ever is for certain
And I hold my hands up high
On my knees tonight
I'll take
Won't wait
I will live and learn my lesson here tonight

I'll get off my knees and fight
Kick down the doors let in the light tonight
Tonight

Everything Ends

I had a conversation with a dying man
He said "Son, make sure you live while you still can
Though I could write down the rules of war and
I could swim the seas" he said "Boy
Oh you know not what you have"

Now I lay on my bed waiting
Those words resound in my head
Well I remember he told me
"You'll see when everything ends"

I had a conversation with a dying man
Said "Life passes by in the blink of an eye
The gold will rust, and empires will follow
Swallowed by the sea, do you sleep sound?
Well, enjoy it while you can"

Now I lay on my bed waiting
Those words resound in my head
Well I remember he told me
"You'll see when everything ends"

Here I lie, falling asleep on my death bed
And I don't think they're worthless anymore

Now I lay on my bed waiting,
Now I remember he told me
"You'll see when everything ends"

I had a conversation with a dying man
He said "Son, make sure you live while you still can"

Headlights

Yeah I need meaning
As much as I need air to fill these old lungs of mine
I didn't notice but I've been holding my breath as long as I've been alive

The shots behind my eyes they glitter in the dark
As they get closer they illuminate their mark

Everybody stares into the headlights bearing down
But we don't care, standing in the glare
We didn't see them coming, headlights closing in

Everybody stares
Through my fingers everything was monotone and weak
Now all the colour brings me to my knees
I was so afraid of repeating myself
That I never said anything at all

The shots behind my eyes they glitter in the dark
As they get closer they illuminate their mark

Everybody stares into the headlights bearing down
But we don't care, standing in the glare
We didn't see them coming, headlights closing in

I found you, you give me meaning
In everything you do, I found you, now I've discovered
What I have got to do, I'm broken and I'm bruised
I'm beaten black and blue, split at the seams but so are you
If you take me as I am, better and bland
I'd face the headlights, side by side with you

Broadfields

I used to hear the melody, the voice of the unknown
The rhythm in the rain beating down my window
Now it's clear to me, and I can see
Through each and every pane, that I grew up
And I forgot to feel that way again

I've been lost by the city, drowned by the sea
I've been up on the rooftops, still I'm caving in
You can scream bloody murder, loud as you want
I'm not listening now

Sing me something, to bring me down
'Cos I can't find anything like that sound
I don't need it any more

I left my heart back in the broad fields

Used to look between the fences, my hands out to the breeze
I swore that I would understand the whispers in the trees
But the older I got, the more I found I lost
Now I'm run through with rot, covered in frost
I have wondered so long, and now that I'm here
I just want to go home

Sing me something, to bring me down
'Cos I can't find anything like that sound
I don't need it any more

I left my heart back in the broad fields
Rain, rain, rain, carry me home
Wash away the pain, blame, shame, that I've come to know
I think that it's time
Yes I think that it's time
That I went home
