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.

Anyway 04:02
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.

Messed It Up 05:07
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

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?

My Friends 04:32
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

At Peace 03:51
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

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

Mirror World 03:24
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

Find Me Now 04:23
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

Stay With Me 04:09
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

Tangled 04:35
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
