about

Gentle One is a story of the demons within us, and how they affect the ones we love most with the greatest tenacity. It is testimony to the ongoing struggle of many of us to do better throughout our lives and how the anti-hero twin inside emerges at times to wreak havoc, riding its dark horse.

lyrics

Gentle one
How will we keep from sinking
I know you've been thinking
Our love is on the line

I dreamt last night
That all the world was fleeting
Our bodies receding
Just shaking in the blight

Oh love could never live
In a place like this you said
All that I can give
Is just not enough for you

Gentle one
I know I'm half the man that I should be
I look into the mirror
I don't know who looks back at me

Gentle one
We've got to make it bright tonight
To free the chains from every mind
To keep the dream alive

I want you
I need you to mesmerize
To drown me in bedroom eyes
Until the morning comes

Oh love could never live
In a place like this you said
All that I can give
Is just not enough for you

Gentle one
I know I'm half the man that I should be
I look into the mirror
I don't know who looks back at me

I think I'm sick
And you're just trying to help
Am I perpetually thick
Am I just living in hell

Oh love could never live
In a place like this you said
All that I can give
Is just not enough for you

Gentle one
I know I'm half the man that I should be
I look into the mirror
I don't know who looks back at me

Gentle one
I know I'm half the man that I should be
I look into the mirror
I don't know who looks back at me
