Track Name: Running
Wait for me
I keep running towards, keep on running towards
the same sad dream from the night before, from the night before
clipped my wings left my body sore, left my body sore

Chorus:
I'd really love to sleep
I'm finding it hard to tell you what I need

I fled my world, all I've known before, all I've known before
and chased my dreams the life I'm longing for, life I'm longing for
filled my needs. Kept me running towards, kept me running towards

Chorus:
I'd really love to sleep
I'm finding it hard to tell you what I need
I'm finding it hard to let go
of everything I've ever known

I'm breaking it!

I'm shaking off this life I've left behind
and facing all the pain that's left inside
I'm shaking off this life I've left behind
and facing all the pain that's left inside
Track Name: The One
You were the one when the dark tried to take me
You were the one from the start
They never saw, but I saw how you saved me
You were the one from the start

When I was young and life was lonely
I traveled each unlucky road
I begged for time but time came slowly
I battled deep, more than you know

You were the one when the world overwhelmed me
You were the one with my heart
They’ll never know, but I know how you saved me
You were the one from the start

When I was young and life was lonely
I traveled each unlucky road
I begged for time but time came slowly
I battled deep, more than you know

I never knew what I felt inside
So blind to the breaks in a fallout shelter
Slow revelry of the parting marches on
From the brave to the dark

When I was young and life was lonely
I traveled each unlucky road
I begged for time but time came slowly
I battled deep, more than you know
Track Name: Lost
This is why we shade the darkness from our eyes
This is where it starts
This is when the fools believe that lovers never part
And I feel lost

This is why we always hurt the ones we love
We never find the gray
We only choose to close our minds and turn and run away
And I feel lost
I fell the roots of sadness twisting up to take my place
And I fear I can’t repair

This is why there’s nothing gained without a cost
I’m trying to let go
I try to let the armor down and feel the breeze blow
This where it hurts and this is why it aches
When you chip away at love the bough begins to break
And I feel lost
I feel it in the moments it’s so hard to open up and I retreat
And I feel lost

This is how it starts, this is where it ends
We go back and forth and backwards once again
This is how it starts, this is where it ends
We go back and forth and backwards once again
Track Name: I Saw A Light
I spent the nights with the alcoholics
I took the money with a Judas kiss
I was in love before and all it promised
But it was never like this, it was never like this
Something took a hold, pulling me on for tomorrow

Chorus:
I saw a light above your head
And felt the waves beneath your bed
I saw a light above your head
I reach out, I’m home

I watched the years disappear in sadness
I felt the knife and the same mistakes
I was in love and thought there’d be no other
I wasn’t counting on this
I never counted on this
Something took a hold, pulling me on for tomorrow

Pulling me on, yes you're pulling me on
Pulling me on, yes you're pulling me on
Something took a hold, pulling me on for tomorrow

Chorus
Chorus
Track Name: Katie's Waiting
Still I cannot find
Still I cannot find my home
And there’s no place left for me
No place left where I can go
So it’s one more sad goodbye
One more sad goodbye from me

And it’s hard when you discover that
Hard for you to sit in my place
It’s so strange
It’s hard when you discover that
Hard for you to sit in my place
When Katie’s waiting

Still I cannot hear
Still I cannot hear my heart
And it’s crying out for me
But the distance now has grown too far
And the silence in the night
The silence just won’t let me be

And it’s easy when you compromise
Easier to sit in your place
It’s so safe
It’s easy when you compromise
Easier to sit in your place
When Katie’s waiting

She’s waiting
She’s waiting
Katie’s waiting
Track Name: Fall In Love
There’s nothing left to say
There’s nothing in your way
There’s nothing left for you to think upon and on

There’s nothing left for you
There’s no one else to choose
There’s nothing left to do but fall in love

There’s nowhere left to hide
There’s no more asking why
There’s no more ways to think about it one more step come on and shout

There’s no more master plan
There’s no safe place to land
There’s nothing left to do but fall in love

A leap of faith no doubt about it
Words won’t save you now, anyhow

There’s nothing left to say
There’s no more great debate
There’s nothing left to do but fall in love

A leap of faith no doubt about it
Words can’t save you now, anyhow

There’s nothing left to see
There’s no more make believe
There’s nothing left to do but fall in love
Track Name: From Whence I Came
I’m home again
From whence I came
The night is still
But the hurt remains
I open the door
And step inside
The fire’s still lit
But the flame has died

Chorus:
Once I hid away my hopes and dreams
‘Til I had to say goodbye
I felt a little like a drowning man
So I had to say goodbye
I had to say, I had to say goodbye

I’m counting up
The reasons why
The balance shifts
Between truth and lies
I hold in my hand
Our faded dreams
They’re withered and torn
But they never leave

Chorus:
Once I hid away my hopes and dreams
‘Til I had to say goodbye
I felt a little like a dying man
So I had to say goodbye
I used to find it hard to be myself so I had to say goodbye so I could fly, I could fly
Track Name: Happy
Happy. I’ll never be happy
I’m telling you please don’t come my way
Sorry. I’ll always be sorry
I begging you please don’t come my way

Chorus:
I know you’ll never understand
I know you’ll never understand
I try to fight it but the truth don’t lie
There's too much darkness in this heart of mine

Tempted. I’ll always be tempted
I’m hurting you please don’t come my way
Lonely. I’ll always be lonely
I’m saving you please don’t come my way

Chorus:
I know you’ll never understand
I know you’ll never understand
I try to fight it but the truth don’t lie
There's too much darkness in this heart of mine

I swear. The wind has carved upon the cliffs
A picture of the night we kissed. Now it’s gone

Chorus:
I know you’ll never understand
I know you’ll never understand
II want redemption but the truth don't lie
There's too much darkness in this heart of mine
I know you’ll never understand
I know you’ll never understand
I know you’ll never understand
Track Name: Pale Yellow Moon
I was lying awake under pale yellow moon
I was holding you close as the stars collide into view, there for you

Every instrument said I was heading for you
Every memory full of a life that I hoped would come true, here with you

We were sailing away under Pale Yellow Moon
Leaving all this behind with shackles of youth
And the bold melody of the heart breaking free always playing

There were days when I felt I’m too shattered and bruised
Had my heart re-arranged feeling tied and twisted In two, then I found you

We were sailing away under Pale Yellow Moon
Leaving all this behind with shackles of youth
And the bold melody of the heart breaking free always playing

And I do know, and I do know, and I do know
And I do know, yes I do know, and I do know
This is our time
Track Name: This Long Goodbye
I never thought this day would come
When the sky has separated from the sun
And the trees cry out their saddest melody
And this long goodbye has me driven to my knees

I'm afraid to turn to the Bible because I'm liable to be cursed and blood stained
I'm afraid to look in the mirror
It would make things clear and I'd have to face the pain

I've long since lost my way back home
And the scattered leaves hide the footpath to my soul
As the lonely waves are mourning for the sea
I will try my best to find what lies beneath

I'm afraid to turn to the Bible because I'm liable to be cursed and blood stained
I'm afraid to look in the mirror
It would make things clear and I'd have to face this

I'm afraid to turn to the Bible because I'm liable to be cast in the flames
I'm afraid to look in the mirror
It would make things clear and I'd have to face this long goodbye
This long goodbye

This long goodbye
I know that it's over now but I can stop trying
This long goodbye
Making things clear now and I'll have to face this long goodbye

I know I'm a sinner for of doubt and ashamed
Long goodbye
Making things clear now and I'll have to face this long goodbye
This long goodbye
