about

This is my first ever release and I am very flattered that you have taken the time out to listen and download. It really means a lot to me. I put a lot of effort and love into this record and I just want to share it with as many people as possible. Its been a tough journey and I've spent a lot of hours in makeshift recording studios, but I feel very privileged to be able to share it with you now. Please don't hesitate to tell your friends and family about me and the record, it would mean the world!

Thanks again,

William Stead

Track Name: St. Christopher
He stands out in the rain
Whilst his clothes cling to his frame
He holds his chain in his hands
As they tremble, as they tremble

He shouts to St. Christopher
Protect us from the pain
He feels nothing
His pupils dilate

With St. Christopher in his hands
Hanging from the chain
He falls to his knees they bleed
his fingers in the dirt

Hes lost from his home
With nowhere to go
He hopes for some guidance
From st Christopher

His cigarette stained fingers
Hold St. Christopher tighter
His filthy nails mark his palms
As he grasps

The book by his feet
Soaked through from the rain
Is his safety net from the world
It is all he really knows

With St. Christopher in his hands
Hanging from the chain
He falls to his knees they bleed
his fingers in the dirt

With St. Christopher in his hands
Hanging from the chain
He falls to his knees they bleed
his fingers in the dirt

St. Christopher protect us
St. Christopher Protect us
Track Name: The History
What,
am I looking for
I can’t seem to think what’s
through that door

the words
escape me
but I know they’ll come back
eventually

my days
are getting shorter
my life is
going nowhere fast

im trying
to save myself
by bringing my
happiness back

The nights are long
The days are short
You and me know
what’s in store

I find
Myself growing
Older and older
Without even knowing

I need
Something new in my life
To help me
Pass the time

The nights are long
The days are short
You and me know
what’s in store

So grab a coat
And come with me
We will re-write
The history

Come closer x4

The nights are long
The days are short
You and me know
what’s in store

So grab a coat
And come with me
We will re-write
The history
Track Name: One Last Dance
Wherever I go
The sun never shines

This dark black cloud
Looms over my head

All my thoughts
Travel with me

My soul begins to fade
Theres nothing for me

Only you can keep me together
My eternity is in your hands

All I ask
To give me one last dance

Just one more time
Forever you and I

Only you can keep me together
My eternity is in your hands

You and me, you and me

Only you can keep me together
My eternity is in your hands


Only you can keep me together
My eternity is in your hands
Track Name: Fade Away
The flashing lights fly past through the city streets
I never want this night to end
The sunlight rises, it covers the rooftops
Today turns tomorrow

All my troubles fade away
I realise I've got you and everything's OK

All my troubles fade away
I realise I've got you and everything's OK

As we drive past the buildings on the city streets
The night will not cease to fall
The moonlight guides us
As we find ourselves
The dawn brings reality

All my troubles fade away
I realise I've got you and everything's OK

All my troubles fade away
I realise I've got you and everything's OK

I feel on top of the world
When I'm lying here with you

All my troubles fade away
I realise I've got you and everything's OK

All my troubles fade away
I realise I've got you and everything's OK
