"You Only Hide..." as written by Paul Anthony Dempsey, Stephanie Ashworth and Clint Wesley Hyndman....
So I keep watch
And you keep breaking
Breaking formation to become
Someone else
And your eyes become corridors
Where I wander with a candle
Calling out to you

and you only hide
Because you know I'll find you

you say you just want to feel
The way you used to feel
The way you should feel
And I wander through
The lost city of you

and you only hide because you know I'll find you

    General CommentThis song relates to the games people play with one another. People go into hiding in the hope someone will seek them out so they feel loved and needed. Everyone has done it at one stage or another.

    General CommentThis song is just about being loved. if you've ever felt like your alone and need someone to be there for you but you just dont know who to turn to...youv'e always got this song."I wander through the last city of you" the last city being your inner soul? the place were only close people can ever get to..

    General Commentthis song is played on neighbours too much, like the entire pete murray album

    whenever i see this song live, i can feel such emotion coming from paul but, it seems like a whole different level

    General CommentI think it's maybe about being insecure about themselves or the relationship they are in, not that that is a necesarilly a good thing. But one person needing their partner to tell them they are loved, and testing them to see how genuine they are.

    And I may be wrong, but i think the real lyrics are "the lost city of you" not "last", it just sounds like last. Makes much more sense that way anyway, and dempsey's not one for imperfection in writing!

    General Commentto add to that, i love this song because it's somwhat different in style to his other songs. The other songs could be considered to be more metaphorical as apposed to this being simple. The song could even be about himself, and us finding him. Ironic considering the somwhat complexity of his lyrics.
