Running 04:11
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

The One 03:27
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

Lost 03:47
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

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
5.
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

Fall In Love (free) 02:20
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

From Whence I Came (free) 03:59
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

Happy 02:58
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

Pale Yellow Moon (free) 02:59
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
10.
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
