Where do I see myself five years from now Pontiacs and Cadillacs driving round somehow Conductor without orchestra, actor without the bows My fifteen minutes filled with why, when and how? I want to see my name in lights on the silver screen Rubbing shoulders with royalty and what might have been Faking at being famous, recognised at being both Lonely souls sold on my TV screen Do you hear me calling You're curious to see A chaotic conscious mixed with a misery I'll keep on talking to every magazine It don't make it right For you and me I'll have a TV show that follows me night and day My considered opinions have nothing worthwhile to say You can see me in meltdown for a season or so But I might get asked to leave if my vote count gets too low Why can't I say you're great without falling to bits Is it that I have Celebrity Blues and with it all the kicks Do you hear me calling You're curious to see A chaotic conscious mixed with a misery I'll keep on talking to every magazine It don't make it right For you and me

Follow 04:20
If I say to you Through the darkness I will follow And I will not lose sight of you To unburden you Of your loneliness and your sorrow And I will lift this load from you As I have felt this way too In your head (In your head) are plans to destroy and to damage In your heart (In your heart) I won't let you fade to black In your soul (In your soul) there is light beyond the shadow In your heart (In your heart) I won't let you fade to black If I say to you I will follow through the darkness And I will steer your storms for you

Oh my baby don't you cry 'Cause now you got a tear in your heart and in your eyes With those stupid games you play But without hope how would we cope anyway Oh anyway, anyway So look behind my mind Where thoughts breed so unkind Oh those pretty pictures that you paint In your head Oh my baby can't you see Being a bitch doesn't work that way with me I won't be coming back to beg 'Cause now I'm going to get on with my life instead Anyway So look behind my mind Where thoughts breed so unkind Oh those pretty pictures that you paint In you head

Sonatine 1 03:21
I saw the papers Were you pushed or you jumped Were you pushed or you jumped I heard you were headed on the up When they found you Your head was hung down Your head was hung down What makes the man  Leave all he loves? We all fall down I heard the broadcast  The girl was alive The girl was alive But it wasn't to be  And the hacked celebrities In the name of the news In the name of the news What makes the people Screw with other peoples lives? We all fall down All the people are far away, far away from the hell that they've made

Sonatine 2 06:06
News in my head Get out, I write on the run Read all about it through the magazines Nobody's with nothing to say As we plough through time I'm burning up with the speed of things Cling to myself but I left him behind A conscious effort to remember all things We all fall down waiting for all things We dumb it down without the need to think We all fall down waiting for all things We dumb it down without the need to think Read no words Pictures showing us what to be We all get bored, we are the dead It's all about you don't you see When you take him out The good in you is slipping away We all fall down waiting for all things We dumb it down without the need to think We all fall down waiting for all things We dumb it down without the need to think

Station 03:39
Waiting at the station For the girl to call Lost in this location Detached and drawn to the heavens, part of it all In open skies heavens shine out of the city A clear night reveals all views Orion's stars travel to me Illuminates my way to you There's no centre of the universe But 200 billion stars We'll watch the suns expire And expand beyond our skies Don't you know that my love is like a comet Circulating round your sun But it keeps that perfect distance I'm unraveled, I'm undone
7.
Staring out from a North London Hill My moment of clarity Next to her my soul starts to soar A life without gravity She came to me and I know All that I am, I give to you One life to live I do for you Blue and gold, my soul was sold One heart to give For you, I do She's slender in her embrace A strength that can't be undone I'm slight in her fairness My prize to be won She came to me and I know All that I am, I give to you One life to live I do for you Blue and gold, my soul was sold One heart to give For you, I do All the time Love would fade away But not with you

about

Out Of The City I Can't Sink is Stephen Wheel's second album. Eclectic, cinematic and composed, it's about love, loss, fleeting fame, assassination, disillusionment, and inner peace, and made entirely in Wales.
