Track Name: This Night
I've been waiting to uncover
Every vacant memory of you
In this still room I'd start over
Waiting for you and everything we know

Lost in silence through your whisper
But I'm careful to never fall asleep
Sleepless sunrise lasts forever
Through these wires I'll never let you go

One more reason that I’d fall for you
But it’s all I need to make myself believe you
This time, while we share this night
But you’re all I need and someday I will find you
This time
Track Name: Sunday Morning Train
I met her on a Sunday morning train
Rolling from the river banks to the empty shore that laid
In my mind

As everybody gathered aimlessly
Staring out the windows only to fear that they would see
Their broken dreams

As everyone departed from their seats
Our shadows ran ahead of us to reveal the painful days
We would feel

I saw her crying while she looked at me
Only cos she knew that I would remember everything
I had seen

Won’t you save me
I would ask her, she would reply
No, this is why you’re here
We can’t leave now, it’s your time to die
Track Name: Without You
One night was all I wanted
One night with you was all I wanted
I’ll never be alone my love
I’ll never be without you in my dreams

I’ll always remember what you felt like
I’ll never forget you that’s what she said

Hold on cos I’ve been waiting
Now that you’re gone I need you closer
My heart will beat for you my love
I’ll always be without you, but it’s alright

I’ll always remember what you felt like
I’ll never forget you that’s what she said

I’ll always remember just how you loved me
I’ll never forget you that’s what I said
Track Name: In the Meantime
In the meantime let us fall apart
Empty reasons fill me up inside
We never belonged here
And now I know why
We’ll never belong here
And now I know why

Distant voices keep me far from you
Useless tension breaks you down inside
We never evolved here
And now I know why
We’ll never evolve here
And now I know why

Now that you know what you’ve done
And you know what you’ve done

I don’t believe in what you said
Nothing has changed it’s all the same
I think we should leave and go our way

Now that you know what you’ve done
And you know what you’ve done

Now that you know what you’ve done
And you know what you’ve done

I don’t believe in what you said
Nothing has changed it’s all the same
I think we should leave and go our way

Now that you know what you’ve done
And we’ll move on cos we’re done
Track Name: Silhouette
I see you standing outside
You’re staring up at the lonely night
I’ll keep my distance inside
I’ll make a move when I feel it’s right

I’m scared that I don’t know how
I see that you’re leaving now

The moment’s passing me by
Another night that I haven’t tried
I’d almost rather I lie
Convince myself that I’m out of time

It’s you that I haven’t found
I fear that it’s over now

And you will never know
What I’d do just to be with you
And you will never know
Everything that I’d do for you

The longer I stay awake
Another chance I should take
A view from my window shade
Something I wouldn’t change

I finally made up my mind
I’ll make it through to the other side
My shadow walking in line
Your silhouette leaving me behind
Track Name: Conquer and Rise
I’d sacrifice myself to have you stay
To keep you here to keep you well always
And I only want for you to be yourself
And when you feel down I just need you to hold on

The days behind have left me scarred remains
With all the strength I need to live each day
With all of the anxious appointments we fall
And when I depart you won’t fight this alone

You will conquer and rise

Leave this behind
Move forward with your life
You will survive
I need more time

You will conquer and rise

Hold on
Track Name: Distance
You walked in my life unexpectedly
But knowing that you would be leaving me
I cannot replace how I used to be
Tonight

If only you left on another night
But now that you’re gone I have all this time
You’re all that I want in this desperate life
Tonight

Everything that it’s supposed to be
Would drive me crazy
But if it’s meant to be despite this distance we
Can make it right for you and me

Will we become just another trend
Is this a dream coming to its end
Help me believe while I wait again
Tonight

Everything that it’s supposed to be
It drives me crazy
But if it’s meant to be despite this distance we
Can make it right for you and me

For you and me
Track Name: Under the Stars
I dreamt about you last night
Laying under the stars
I held you closer to my heart
Before you said goodbye

The moon was shining in your eyes
The world was asleep...
As you left you smiled at me
Knowing it was goodbye

I kissed your lips for the last time
Hoping someday that I would know
What it feels like to be with you again
Track Name: Spin
(Instrumental)
Track Name: If Only
The sky opened up
When it had enough
But will it shine on me

And as the wind blows
Still nobody knows
What lies ahead
Is this the end

Someday we’ll know
We’ll have to move on
If only you’ll stay
When everything’s wrong
Everything’s ok

Someday
Track Name: Faded Signs
We said we’ll never change
We’ll always be the same
And live our lives this way

I left it all behind
To start a brand new life
Instead of wasting time

It’s been a long and lonely road
For us to feel this way
Don’t recognize me anymore
Remember faded signs

You walked alone and said
We’ll never be the same
But everything’s ok

I haven’t since returned
From many lessons learned
I left, but you still hurt

It’s been a long and lonely road
For us to feel this way
Don’t recognize me anymore
How did we get so far
From everything we used to know
It made us fall apart
When nothing seems to be the same
Remember faded signs
Track Name: Letting Go
I never felt this way before
So insecure I’ve never known
With all the echoes in the world
I’ll learn to fade away and let you go

And all the things we used to be
Were only dreams and only lies
I’ll fill the void you left for me
Cos now I know you had your reasons why

We fell in love now you don’t need me
I’ll leave today, make my way to the moonlight

When everything beneath me falls
The ocean waves will guide me home
I’ll lie between these empty walls
And find away to pass the time alone

We fell in love now you don’t need me
I’ll leave today, make my way to the moonlight

All of these faces
Staring back at me
I’ll finally listen
Oh I will, I will

We fell in love now you don’t need me
I’ll leave today, make my way to the moonlight

We fell in love now you don’t need me
I like the way you look tonight in the moonlight
Track Name: It Came to an End
I woke up today excited, but scared
I knew that I came, I came unprepared
To hear what you’d say right from the start
You said that I came, I came here too late

The distance between was too hard to take
I knew I’d return and see you someday
But as time went on so did your love
You said that I came, I came here too late

It’s only you

I needed you more, you wanted us less
I couldn’t hold on to this emptiness
Was this the way it’s meant to be
It came to an end before it began

Help me believe it’s only you

I needed you more, you wanted us less
I couldn’t hold on to this emptiness
Was this the way it’s meant to be
It came to an end before it began

I woke up today excited, but scared
I knew that I came, I came unprepared
To hear what you’d say right from the start
You said that I came, I came here too late
