Track Name: Life's Forgotten Dream [feat. Emzae]
A star shines somewhere in a lonely room
Behind a door where no-one can see
I know it wasn't meant to be this way
But sometimes the light can fade so easily

To disappear in forgotten dreams
And leave tomorrow behind

Scars are only seen if we show them
But was there a glimpse that something wasn't right
You took yourself all over London
Then disappeared again into the night

To be lost in a forgotten dream
And leave the future behind
So disconnected from the city life
As he wonders where you've gone this time

The TV's on, the curtains are drawn
Christmas presents litter the floor
Distant laughter comes through the neighbours wall
But you're not there to hear it anymore

To disappear in forgotten dreama
And leave tomorrow behind
Disconnected from the city life
But you'll be remembered in time
