Track Name: Fallen [Alternate Version]
these times are trying
but who says that i'm not

the wind to my back
sees me walking down a different path

on my way back home
i've fallen, on my knees
down a path unknown
i've stumbled, to my feet
i've fallen down a hole
climbed out, and carried on

these nights are getting longer
and thats when, when i roam

stars are my compass
they tell me which way to go

on my way back home
i've fallen, on my knees
down a path unknown
i've stumbled, to my feet
i've fallen down a hole
climbed out, and carried on

in a world full of questions
i can't find the right answers

if love is just a feeling
then why am i all torn up?

on my way back home
i've fallen, on my knees
down a path unknown
i've stumbled, to my feet
i've fallen down a hole
climbed out, and carried on
Track Name: Raining Heart
babe, how can i love you?
if you,
if you still love him
i can't be true
true to your heart babe
i'm sad and blue

babe, these tears i'm cryin' (cryin')
for you
for you my heart sings,
like the rain
but the rain keeps on falling
all over me

hold on, oh i can hold on
dream of, yea i can dream of
your kiss, but i've yet met your lips

babe, the way you keep looking
at me
at me you're not seeing
but him
but him you are thinking of
and that's what wrecks me

babe, the sun keeps on shining (shining)
over you
over you, i am trying
so i
so i must be moving on
i won't forget you

hold on, oh i can hold on
dream of, yea i can dream of
your kiss, but i've yet met your lips

babe, i'm thinking of you
and i know you are too
Track Name: Walking Away From a Sunset
walking away from a sunset

never knew how long it would take
never knew how much i'd break
these feelings they came so quickly
these feelings were received directly

I'm walking away from a sunset
I'm walking away from you
I'm walking away from a sunset
that leads me back to you

how simple a few words can be
how simple it is to ignore me
these days go by so slowly
these days go by without ever knowing

I'm walking away from a sunset
I'm walking away from you
I'm walking away from a sunset
as pretty as you

the wind can blow a flower
the wind can't slow all these hours

I'm walking away from a sunset
I'm walking away from you
I'm walking away from a sunset
that leads me back to you

I'm walking away from a sunset
I'm walking away from you
I'm walking away from a sunset
as pretty as you
as pretty as you
as pretty as you
Track Name: Love, Hate Kind of Thing
Love, Hate Kind of Thing

She met him in the city where business wont rest
Started out as nothing until it progressed
Into something that only he could obsess
The truth was just too hard for him to confess

Months had gone by without a reply
All he wanted for her was to satisfy
Still he shook it off and kept his course
Not thinking of any remorse

It’s a love-hate kind of thing
It’s a love-hate game we play
It’s a love-hate kind of thing
It’s a love-hate game…

Then one day she finally opened up
Took his hand and said, “hey, start looking up”
Never did the boy feel the same since that day
He drove around in circles not knowing what to say

He dreams about her each and every nite
Thoughts of her beauty remain his only sight
Walking around the city thinking of his pseudo-lover
Matching each cloud to a memory of her

It’s a love-hate kind of thing
It’s a love-hate game we play
It’s a love-hate kind of thing
It’s a love-hate game…

Now she comes back with a new way to live
Asking him for something that he will always give
It seems that the tide is finally gonna turn
Only to be slapped in the face and burned

It’s a love-hate kind of thing
It’s a love-hate game we play
It’s a love-hate kind of thing
It’s a love-hate game…
Track Name: Hard Times
hard times

it ain't so easy
landing on your feet
trudging thru the mud
when you're in so deep

trying hard to keep
my feet upon the ground
struggling to find
some piece of mind

i see a friend of mine
hit some hard times
trying to make a dime
and eat a meal

left a broken heart
out in the rain
now it don't beat
to the song the same
to the same old song

and if you fall
on hard times
and if you fail
to see the signs
that the wind has blown
that your mind has known
just keep on down

took a big fall
got some wounds to heal
don't know what to feel
anymore

know this in life
don't matter who you are
don't matter where you been
it's all within

take it as it comes
roll along the way
see it my way
and i'll see it yours

and if you fall
if you fall hard
get yourself up
and move along

and if you fall
on hard times
and if you fail
to see the signs
that the sun has shown
that the threads have sewn
just keep on down
Track Name: Wash Me Away
Wash Me Away

i've been up and down
been turned around
i've seen the faces
that've never frowned

i've heard the sound
stood on solid ground
been to the places
that've never been found

and i'll wait...
for your return
and i ache
for your heart
down by the water
and i will wait
for your love
to come back
in my arms
once again

i've heard the lies
memorized 'these eyes'
i've seen mountains
that grow in size

been on the run
searching for that sun
one day i'll find it
some day real soon

and i'll wait...
for your return
and i ache
for your heart
down by the water
and i will wait
for your love
to come back
in my arms
once again

ocean, take me away
won't you wash me away
Track Name: Never Say Never
never say never


i wait for an answer or even a call
but the way you've been dialing
it's as if the line's gone dead

i look for your face, or even a sign
in a crowded bar room
or a familiar place

the last thing you said, still rings in my head
you said 'never say never'
a 'chance' is what i read

the days went past, the hours did crawl
where the fondness in my heart
became a funeral song

why why why?
was it you, you, you
that broke this poor boy's heart
no no no
it was i, i, i,
that let you stab the knife


i hear that you're leaving, i hear you're moving on
and i'm waiting by your train
but you've already gone

and maybe i'm crazy, and made it up all along
but i swear you felt it
and strung me along

why why why?
was it you, you, you
that broke this poor boy's heart
no no no
it was i, i, i,
that let you stab the knife

and maybe i'll see you, on some distant day
and say that you'll call me
but you'll forget my name
Track Name: The California Dream (Isn't What It Seems)
The California Dream (Isn't What It Seems)

you'll meet a beautiful girl and fall in love
then get crushed and fall apart
you'll see the ocean blue and never want to leave it
and then go broke and drive back home
you'll make new friends and you'll feel so welcome
but when you're down they'll say see you later

so this is what it means to be
alone, surviving up in your tree
far from home, living comfortably
escaping harm, seeking harmony
but you'll
you'll learn fast
cuz it won't
no, it won't last
the california dream
isn't what it seems
it's not what it seems

you'll build up hope and dreams that are way too big
for the room you never leave isn't big enough
you'll forget your name in the hopes of love
until she breaks you and knocks down your wall
you'll run away from impending doom
when the answers are right in front of you

so this is what it means to be
alone, surviving up in your tree
far from home, living comfortably
escaping harm, seeking harmony
but you'll
you'll learn fast
cuz it won't
no, it won't last
the california dream
isn't what it seems
it's not what it seems
Track Name: Count Your Lucky Stars
count your lucky stars

load up the kids, take 'em outside
all in the car, we're going for a ride
just as they leave, chaos ensues
the rearview is red, there's blood on the ground
cars overturned, fire all around
as you turn the corner, and you come out
unscathed

so count your lucky stars, tonight
cuz you don't know what you have, til it's gone
it's gone, gone away, so gone, gone

home all alone, you get on the phone
call up a friend, and he recommends
get out of the house, and get some air
you step outside, take a deep breath
the smell of gas, engulfs the air
a sudden explosion, as you dive out
of the way

so count your lucky stars, tonight
cuz you don't know what you have, til it's gone
it's gone, gone away, so gone, gone
Track Name: I Need You
i need you

looking past these rainy days
searching for another way
in the form of an angel
is how i found you, i found you

you were sitting all alone
waiting by the telephone
you looked up and your eyes met mine
and then i knew it, i knew it

ohhhhh
i need you, baby
baby, i need you
in my life

smiling eyes and a glowing face
a memory i won't replace
took all of my breath away
and i want you, i want you

talk to you each and everyday
have so much that i want to say
i hear your voice and break a smile
cuz i like you, i like you

ohhhhh
i need you, baby
baby, i need you
in my life
ohhhhh
i need you, baby
baby, i need you
in my life

wait, give me your hand
i want to show you, that i understand
wait, give me your hand
i want you to know, that i'm your man

looking up to sunny days
i know this aint a passing phase
cuz with you it'll always last
forever, forever...
Track Name: Life Will Let Me Know
Life Will Let me Know


I met you in the bar
where love is never far
fell for those brown eyes
a fool for you, but wise...

I met you in the park
it was more than just a spark
a subtle second glance
and now we're holding hands


and whichever path you choose
I will wait for you
and if doubt shadows your heart
let my love shine thru
and if your heart becomes free
life will let me know


I met you in the hall
where the colors paint the wall
you fell into my arms
i'll keep you safe from harm


and whichever path you choose
I will wait for you
and if doubt shadows your heart
let my love shine thru
and if your heart becomes free
life will let me know

and whichever path you choose
I will wait for you
and if doubt shadows your heart
let my love shine thru
and if your heart becomes free
life will let me know
Track Name: Tornado
tornado

every night i have the same dream
where i'm with you and you're with me...
but i know it won't last

i follow you, and you follow me
i wonder if we'd ever be...
alone in the dark again

you look at me, and i look at you
i wonder if it could ever be true...
but i know the answers now

all these feelings like a tornado
come rushing thru my rear window...
it was over before you know

i think of you, and you think of me
you always wanted to be free...
but i know you'll never be

i'll see you, and you won't see me
i'll wonder how we'll never be...
old in our arms again

every time i see your face, it's something that, i'd never replace
loving you was all i knew, to do when, you gave your heart to me

every night i have the same dream
where i'm with you and you're with me...
yes i know it didn't last

i followed you, and you followed me
i wondered if we'd ever be...
alone in the dark again

you look at me, and i look at you
i wonder if it was ever true...
but i know your reasons now

every time i see your face, i know that, i can't erase it
but now i'm standing like a fool, as you walk, on by me...

every time i see your face, it's something that, i'd never replace
loving you was all i knew, to do when, you gave your heart away

you gave it all away... when you gave your heart away...
you gave it all away...
Track Name: Silent City/Peace of Mind
silent city


wave goodbye, to yesterday,
my mind is still, like the night

silent city, comes to wake,
as i part, and take my leave

all these years, they go by,
like a train, into the night

forgotten tears, remember you,
at your most, lifted state

lets take a ride, away from here, no one will know
the air blows by, with windows open wide, before sunrise
the skyline fades, into a morning haze, we'll take that ride
...one more time

and the morning breaks, to a silent city,
i break away, into a silent dream

this place can take, a piece of me,
each breath i take, is lost in here

it's time to go, we've said too much,
your eyes are tired, but i'm wide awake

i'm passing cars, changing lanes,
i'm looking back, in my rearview

lets take that ride, away from here, to relive
those memories, the wind has blown, across the sky
so many times, we'll remember, and always will...
...one more time

now i leave you, cold and gray
but i'll return, old and frail

Peace of Mind:

If I leave this city behind, will i find some peace of mind?
If I leave it all behind, what will i, really find?
Track Name: You Found Me

Track Name: Thursday
Thursday


this burning feeling inside of me
that's longing to belong to you
i just want to hold you
hold you in my arms

the smile that lays upon your face
is etched in my mind and retraced
i just want to kiss you
kiss you on your lips

your gentle laugh and subtle kiss
a moment that i wouldn't miss
i just want to be here
to be here with you

and you, could be, the one, for me, in my, life
And I, will be, yours to keep, for-ever, and more


your words they flow like an expensive red
I drink them down and eat 'em up
I just want to hear you
to hear you sing 

this burning feeling inside of me
that's longing to belong to you
i just want to hold you
hold you in my arms

and you, could be, the one, for me, in my, life
And I, will be, yours to keep, for-ever, and more
Track Name: The Last Chivalrist
The Last Chivalrist

take my hand down the steps you walk
i'll be an ear to your voice as you talk
come on through, i'll be holding your door
paying attention to things that most ignore

look into my eyes
what you see is real
i'm staring back
with all the love that i, have for you

take your time, i've got nowhere to go
extend your hand, cuz it's yours i want to hold
i smile at you and take you in
you laugh and i know it's about to begin

hold you in my arms
it's love i feel
i won't let go
till we both wa-a-ake up, from this dream

take my hand down the steps you walk
i'll be an ear to your voice as you talk
come on through, i'll be holding your door
paying attention to things that most ignore

look into my eyes
what you see is real
i'm staring back
with all the love that i, have for you

cuz what you want,
i will give
cuz what you need,
i will bleed
for you, my heart,
will carry on
Track Name: Fool
fool

this noble fool, speaks
ill-fated words
towards soft-lipped charmer, he
begs her forgiveness
with sincere regret, and
rambles of desire

whispered lullabies
last thru the night
a look, a linger, a
motion stops in fade
the first sight, a
subtle touch of fate

now i'm a fool
you know for you

the waiting hour
the painful daze
of knowing nothing, and
feeling everything
all to watch it burn
in an instant blaze

tranquility
sinks deep in veins
a lucid dream,
built upon faded memory
all is lost and love is
strangely just a myth

now i'm a fool
you know for you

reach out, for the truth
reach out, before it's gone... gone

(repeat verse 1)

now i'm a fool
you know for you, for you, for you, for you...
Track Name: Loose Ends
loose ends


and as we're waiting here
for the skies to clear
i take, my, own, time, now

but who am i to see
i would never be
one who takes another down

and who am i to say
that love will find a way
i am not so alone


in which we might not be
the stars on t.v.
dreams have found a place

up here inside your mind
don't know what you'll find
the past is not far behind

the rivers run their course
running from the source
lead me not this way


and i wanna see you run with me
and i wanna let the waves lift me
and i wanna feel the sun hit me
and i know.... i know
nothing's gonna let me down


upon this moonlit path
amongst the waves i sat
i ride my way back home

in what seemed out of sight
the elegance of night
has brought me to my knees

you can sing a song with ease
if you find a melody
sing it loud and clear


and i wanna see you run with me
and i wanna let the waves lift me
and i wanna feel the sun hit me
and i know.... i know
nothing's gonna let me down
Track Name: Fractured
Fractured



and when the light stops shining thru
your feelings harbor in this reservoir
you build the pain up furthermore
a guilty mind is all you can procure


and when the sun refuses to shine on you settle up
and when the wind has blown your promises away
and when the world has got you down on your knees
and when the hope you're reaching for it disappears
so hold on
because we're all just fractured human beings

When you need a friend but you're only bringing grief
and that open door shuts in your face
the one who held you up has been replaced
by an empty dream that was never real


and when the sun refuses to shine on you settle up
and when the wind has blown your promises away
and when the world has got you down on your knees
and when the hope you're reaching for it disappears
so hold on
because we're all just fractured human beings


when you're staring out a train window
and the saddest thoughts encompass you
a mirrored reflection shadows you
a thousand voices can go unheard

and when the sun refuses to shine on you settle up
and when the wind has blown your promises away
and when the world has got you down on your knees
and when the hope you're reaching for it disappears
so hold on
because we're all just fractured human beings
Track Name: Lesson (Learned) [Alternate Version]
lessons (learned)

i know, with time, these wounds, will heal
i took, my heart, so full, with love
i layed, it out, so bare, for you
i learned, that day, that love, is real

and he can't help the way he feels about her
and she don't know just what's in store tomorrow
and he can't help the way he feels about her
and she won't know, just what life holds tomorrow

i see, this place, so far, away-hey
it sings, in verse, to my, whole life
i will, take part, some day, real soon
i learned, that day, will have, to wait

and he can't help the way he feels about it
and he don't know just whats in store tomorrow
and he can't help the way he feels about it
and he won't know, just what life holds tomorrow

she knows, in time, her heart, will break
she takes, her time, to know, for sure
she waits, for him, to come, back home
she learned, that day, that he, is gone

and she can't help the way she feels about him
and they don't know just whats in store tomorrow
and he can't help the way he feels about her
and they won't know, just what life holds tomorrow

no, no, no...
no, no, no...
no, they don't
