Track Name: No Time for Worrying
Please go away, I'm sad and I want to stay that way
I'll never change and I know you'll tire of me one day
Each night of bliss leaves me aching for another kiss
What have I missed? I don't think I'm strong enough for this

Maybe I'm wrong, maybe you'll always hold on
Or maybe tomorrow you'll be gone

Moving so fast, I rip out the pages of my past
Still they grow back, they're covered in questions you shouldn't ask
And silence tells all yet I keep on trying to stand tall
My heart is so small, a cipher there is no way to solve

Maybe I'm right, maybe the end is in sight
Or maybe all that matters is tonight

There are no guarantees and prayers promise only bruised knees
No way to be sure what tomorrow brings
All that we have is now, and nothing else exists at all
Don't waste our time on abstract things.
No time for worrying.

Drifting away, I don't have the will to stay awake
Dreams will escape, the pain will come back for me one day
I'm riding the line of fantasy and what's happening
I will be fine. I'll keep you locked up in my memory.

Looks like I was wrong, because heaven's been here all along
In every breath and every song

There are no guarantees and prayers promise only bruised knees
No way to be sure what tomorrow brings
All that we have is now, and nothing else exists at all
Don't waste our time on abstract things.
No time for worrying.
Track Name: Anyway
You're putting up those walls again
I can't say that I blame you
I really want to be a friend
And I don't want to shame you
I know that I seem brighter
When you're standing far away
Because up close you can see the mask
I use to hide my face

So please do what you've got to, I'll be okay
I'll be a little sad, but don't feel bad
Some loneliness might do me good anyway.

Well things got complicated
I guess they always do
I feel like half the time I'm hated
And half in love with you
I think that it's the way your eyes glow
When you think there's a chance
That we didn't meet by accident
Or just mere happenstance

So please do what you've got to, I'll be okay
I'll be a little sad, but don't feel bad
Some loneliness might do me good anyway.

Today you met a pretty girl
Who isn't such a mess
Maybe she'll let you call her "Darling"
Maybe she'll stay and make you breakfast
I'm craving your attention
But can't give you my heart
I've got to let you go now
So you can give this love a chance to start

So please do what you've got to, I'll be okay
I'll be a little sad, but don't feel bad
Some loneliness might do me good anyway.
Track Name: Messed It Up
You let me down and I don't want to come up for air
You let me see your heart and I will strip it bare
You say that you can tell that these days I don't really care
You say that I'm cold and that my love for you is no longer there

Baby I just want to grow a little stronger
So I can hold you up
Maybe I can tell you're really no wiser
Than you were when you first messed it up

Now I can see that you are crying, I know you are scared
You just don't know how hard I am trying to keep things fair
I know that if I give in to you, give you everything
You'd hold on so tight that you'd choke me until I couldn't breathe

Baby I just want to grow a little stronger
So I can hold you up
Maybe I can tell you're really no wiser
Than you were when you first messed it up

Is it so wrong for me to want to stand up on my own
I promise I will not forget you or the love we have known
It's just that I'm so tired of being helpless, broken at the knees
And I would like a chance to show you there's still more to me

Baby I just want to grow a little stronger
So I can hold you up
Maybe I can tell you're really no wiser
Than you were when you first messed it up
Track Name: Always With You
Well I think my shoes might be too small
But that don't bother me at all
It's too nice outside today
And it seems that I have gained some weight
The radio's playing that song I hate
But it's okay, it's beautiful today

For months and months I've waited for the sun
Rainy cloudy days just aren't as fun
Oh why can't the sky always be this blue?
And why can't I always be with you?

It's Wednesday and I overslept
I think my boss would be upset
But it's too nice outside today
And there's some gum stuck to my shoe
And now it's in the carpet too
But it's okay it's beautiful today

And I will not forget how good you feel
For now I'll dream of you until its real
Oh why can't the sky always be this blue?
And why can't I always be with you?

Now I've found my stockings have a hole
My phone fell in the dog's water bowl
But this won't bring me down today
Everybody knows that life is hard
And everyone's got there share of scars
Forget it all and seize the day

I miss you oh so much you're so far away
And when you get back home in my arms you'll stay
Oh why can't the sky always be this blue?
And why can't I always be with you?
Track Name: My Friends
When you are near I forget all my fears
Memories of pain slide away from my brain
And one day we may go our separate ways
But I hope that won't ever be the case
When I am with you the darkness is erased

You seem so happy like you're living a dream
And sometimes I'm jealous because my scars go unseen
I try so hard not to seem far away
Or to fall into some silly game
I want to be with you all of my days

And I don't want this reverie to ever end
And I know there's so much that's broken that I need to mend
I'm just so glad I can call you my friends

The space that we occupy is so small
Seems like there's hardly room to move at all
I must admit that I like it that way
Because you seem like you'd never let me fall
But I know that is not your job at all

And I don't want this reverie to ever end
And I know there's so much that's broken that I need to mend
I'm just so glad I can call you my friends
Track Name: At Peace
Little illusions fall by the wayside
Nightmares reveal what hopes can no longer hide
Help me keep my eyes open, I don't want to see
The pictures that my mind paints for me

I wandered through winter, I sank in the snow
I found you in springtime but I was still cold
Summer passes so quickly and with the turning of trees
The long warm days turn in to memories

But if I let myself cry I'll be no better off
And if the tears sting my eyes then the pain just won't stop
So instead I'll remember to just be at peace
I hope I figure out what that means

I wish that the rest of my heart would grow back
It's shrinking in silence and fading to black
It's growing so heavy and it's growing so numb
So I'll just smile and food everyone

I'll keep it together I'll keep going strong
I'll keep right on singing and I'll try to hold on
I think you might love me and I might love you
Just wish I could see me as you do

But if I let myself cry I'll be no better off
And if the tears sting my eyes then the pain just won't stop
So instead I'll remember to just be at peace
I hope I figure out what that means
Track Name: On to Something
Open my eyes to possibilities
Put them on a board with all your favorite dreams
You've got to let it happen when it does
You've got to let it happen when it does
Awaken at noon to the sound of birds
They're making too much noise and my head hurts
Maybe last night we drank too much
Maybe last night we drank too much

And I don't regret a thing
Wouldn't it be great if we were on to something

You say I'll probably be the death of you
I nod my head and confirm it's true
Can you think of a better way to go?
Do you think I'll say "I told you so?"
And I will keep trying to make you laugh
And I will try to take on too much too fast
I've got to let it happen when it does
I've got to let it happen when it does

And I don't regret a thing
Wouldn't it be great if we were on to something
Track Name: Mirror World
Baby won't you take my hand
We'll find a way out of this land
Let's go somewhere the sun still shines
And leave all of this behind
We wouldn't have far to go
Just place a call to a guy you know
He'll bring our ticket to that place
Don't be mistaken it's not a waste

In the mirror world, we've still got whole hearts
In the mirror world, you don't see my faults
In the mirror world, your love for me is strong
Let the light come in, filter out the pain, hit the bong

Some say it's just an escape
I call it a welcome break
Sometimes life's hard to bear
Sometimes things just don't work out fair
And I know things may still be rough
I know I try to act so tough
But I need you to know I care
Take a deep breath and meet me there

In the mirror world, we've still got whole hearts
In the mirror world, you don't see my faults
In the mirror world, your love for me is strong
How can something that seems so right be so wrong?

So baby come and take my hand
I think we finally understand
What we must do to make things right
And let all our dreams take flight
Life's too short to wait around
And rot away in this rainy town
The rising sun waits for us there
We'll find adventure if we dare

In the real world there's a brand new start
In the real world I won't break your heart
In the real world we'll make each other strong
And we'll find we had it inside ourselves all along
Track Name: Find Me Now
I went outside to greet the sun today
But it wound't even look my way
And I couldn't help but feel so alone
They say you've always got to seize the day
And keep all those nasty thoughts at bay
But self-indulgence is the closest comfort I've known

What do I do? I'm so far from you
I am lost and I can't find my way

Find me now, climb that mountain, cross the ocean
You always said you would
Please somehow find your way back into my arms
I thought you understood
Find me now

It seems that I've become invisible
I didn't know that was possible
And every mark that I have made has been erased
I know I shouldn't really crave your touch
I know I think about you way too much
I also know you can break any walls I raise

What do I do? I'm so far from you
I am lost and I can't find my way

Find me now, climb that mountain, cross the ocean
You always said you would
Please somehow find your way back into my arms
I thought you understood
Find me now
Track Name: Stay With Me
I remember a night long ago
By the fire, how could we have known
The kind of love that we would feel
And the bitter pain to prove that it's real
No questions in your eyes as you leapt from the window
To show me just how much you did not want me to go

Stay with me, you'll be alright
I'll hold you close all through the night
Stay with me you serenade
There's so much music to be made

Another summer another spring
If it's not one, then it's another thing
And I can tell your patience has run out
How did we get here, and how do we get out?

You turn to look at me we hold our breath forever
Please let me prove to you we'll make it through together
Stay with me, you'll be alright
I'll hold you close all through the night
Stay with me, don't be afraid
There's so much music to be made
Track Name: Tangled
You come in at too steep an angle
You're chasing me like you're a plane
I try to run but my legs get tangled
I'm falling on my face again

Now I've got bruises on my back
From where your wheels have scraped
Again and again with your fast attack
Too sudden for me to escape

Why don't you bail out now before it's too late?
Why don't you bail out now while you still can escape
Before it's too late

Today I bought a big ol' gun
I'm going to shoot you down
I won't regret what I have done
And I won't stick around

I'll leave you laying in the dust
My footprint on your face
It's quick and it's dirty, but it's just
And you will be erased

Why don't you bail out now before it's too late?
Why don't you bail out now while you still can escape
Before it's too late
