"On A Wire" as written by Gareth Davies, Matthew Davies, Ryan Richards, Kris Roberts and Darran Anthony Smith....
I'm on fire
Close to the water
And I'll be saved again
Staring at the ocean, over and over
Will I ever see them again?

Why believe SOS?

Find a way to bring me home
I'm wanna be alone again, again
Find a ship to take me home
I don't wanna be alone again
Not again, not again, not again, not again

I'm on a wire, over the border
And I'll be saved again
Living on an island, over and over
I don't think I see them again

Why believe SOS?

Find a way to bring me home
I don't wanna be alone again
Not again, not again, not again, not again

As the daylight fades (daylight fades)
I am a broken man, all alone
As daylight fades (daylight fades)
And I'm just a broken man
All alone, with no home

Find a ship to take me home
I don't wanna be alone again
Not again, not again, not again, not again

Find a ship to take me home
I don't wanna be alone again
Not again, not again, not again, not again

    General CommentA good song, obviously refering to the hours after the boat has sunk...

    General CommentHold up...
    There's a mistake in those lyrics.

    The line before the chorus is in fact;

    "Why'd they leave so soon"

    Well.. according to the 'Tales Don't Tell Themselves' booklet.

    General CommentAh, yes, sorry about that. I had trouble figuring out what was being said here, I was typing at the same time as listening to the song on FFAF MySpace. Listened to that bit over and over, but the best I could come up with was the "Why believe sos" as in why believe the s.o.s call will save us? ... but I was wrong. When you listen to it again knowing the correct lyric, it is still hard to pick out, but is definately there.

    General CommentYeah.

    Matt sings the "soon" part with a high pitched voice.
    It was hard to spot.
    I thought it was just backup vocals.

    General CommentI think this is one of the best songs of the album.. Too bad it doesn't touch me that much as Hours did.
    Kinda changed again, I like it, but I like the old FFAF better.
