Track Name: Small Lapse Of Silence
A small lapse of silence
I'm laughing again
My eyes caught your fire
The heat from within

Our little secret
They don't know about
I'm stuck with this feeling
That wants to get out

Won't you show your smile?
We will dance by the fire
It may last a while;
This feeling inside

Keep your eyes wide
and shine through the night
We will rise
I'm surprised
You and I
A loving life
Together

And now that we're older
We know what it's like
Our hearts will grow stronger
The lust and desire

Won't you close your eyes
Take my hand
We'll start a fight
A little lullaby
A morning sunrise
Yeah

And tonight
We'll arrive
You and I
A morning light
Dry your eyes
Take my hand
We'll start a fight
Together
Track Name: Memories
I don't know why
But I never dared to look you in the eyes
Still, I believe
It was for the best, I'd never stand a chance

I didn't know what to say
So I ran away, to hide from all the pain
Please tell me what to do
Won't you?

Oooh

Once I found the guts to say
These words I used to dream of every day
I sat down next to you
We were all alone, while everybody knew
And as I tried to say your name
I stumbled and you let me feel the pain
And with nowhere left to go

I ran and I cried
I hoped and lied
'Cause no one tells me I'm not the same
A childhood dream is not a game
Oooh x4

And once I knew the truth
I quickly got back up and understood
Our life means so much more
Than to constantly keep hitting the same walls
Though I tried to do my best,
I needed to break to get back up again

And after all these years,
I don't think I could ever love you, dear
Track Name: Wanderers
I've never seen the smile of an angel,
but they say it's very nice
I'm wandering all by myself through this town
There's nothing on my mind
There's no one left to save me
I've got no one to rely on
You're coming home to see me but I
Left my bags behind

Oooh x4

There's people around me, they're smiling, loving,
and taking what is left
My vision is blurred, there's a reason I'm hurt
There's no way out for me
I'm crumbling, stumbling, come on people
Show me what it's like
I want to get out, there's no reason to doubt
It's slowly killing me

Why the hell am I still trying to be
Someone I don't like
A mishaped person, with fantasies
A dream of shattered lies

Why the hell am I still trying to be
Someone I don't like
A mishaped and lonely entity
A slowly wasted life
Why the hell do you still want me to be
Someone I don't like
A perfect spirit, unfortunately
Broken by your lies
Oooh x4

I've never seen the smile of an angel and I
Don't care what it's like
You promised the world to me, unwilling to believe
Nothing felt quite right
These people around me were already doubting the
essence of my life
I'm already sorry for you to be worried, I'm
Leaving you behind

I've always been afraid of stranger things, but I've
Come to realise
I'm perfectly able to work my way out
the comforts of your lies
The angels they're talking of slowly become
Monsters in disguise
My perfect escape, my oddyssey
I've dreamt of all my life
Track Name: Drifting
Instrumental
Track Name: Counting Years
I've seen you passing by
Off the beaten path
And just when I lost the fight
Oh, you found my heart

Why was I the only one
Searching for the dark
Where love and hate are meaningless
You take me to the start

Just fly high
Fly high

We are looking at the skies
Watch the sun rise
Dreaming of a better life
You tell me it's all right

Just fly high
Fly high
Oooh x4

While everything seems to dissapear
I'm still counting all the years
Since you and I first kissed

Oh, we can fly
Far away from here
And we could cast away those fears
Oh, please just show me the way home

Oh, take me home
Won't you please just show me the way home
Track Name: The Way We Live
Waking in the middle of the night
Staring at the ceiling, waiting for a change to come but
All the things I ever said and done,
they make me wanna jump back to the start

Life is short, we know it
There's nothing in this world we can do to make it all worthwhile, but
When I hold your hand it feels like time stops moving, and
is that not what we're all living for?

I'm just trying to change
I'm simply trying to change the way we live
The way we live

We don't know what's out there
Our world is filled with wonders and places to lose track of time, well
What are we all doing with this chance we're given
It's a simple life we're trying to live

Oh, and ignorance is bliss, they say
Then why do I feel sorry for the lives that are all the same
Where most of us are blinded by the comforts and care of the
people that we've accidentally met one day

I'm just trying to change
I'm only trying to change the way we live
The way we live
Track Name: It's Okay To Cry
Don't you wanna go now?
Go home tonight
Dry your eyes, we'll meet another time
And as the waves roll by
And roll down my spine
You hold me tight, and tell me it's alright
We had a wonderfull time
We had a wonderfull time

We had a wonderfull time
Yeah, you and I
Take my hand, and look me in the eyes
And as I pack my bags, and say goodbye
The rain comes falling from the sky

Oooh x4

I don't want to lie
It hurts to say goodbye
There's no thing that I
Will keep from you tonight
'Cause it's okay to cry

Don't you wanna know why?
You shouldn't hide
'Cause somewhere, you're on someone's mind
And every step you take, and hand you shake
Will lead you to the half that fits you well

But I don't want to lie
It hurts to say goodbye
There's no thing that I
Could keep from you tonight
'Cause it's okay to cry

But I don't want to lie
It hurts to say goodbye
There's no thing that I
Could keep from you tonight
'Cause it's okay to cry
Track Name: Coming Home
I wake to find my
Lover Crying
Underneath the
Misletoe

Where have I been
All this time, I'm
Coming home to
Be alone

Coming home to
Be alone

Coming home to
Be alone
Track Name: Mysteries
ometimes I think of
Ways to relieve and
I sing myself a song, sing myself a song

No one wants to talk to me
My birthday is a mystery
There's no one to deny, no one to deny

'Cause it's the end of the day
I'm feeling afraid
I just want you, I just want you

'Cause it's the end of the day
I'm feeling ashamed
'Cause I just want you, I just want you
to know

That I don't know why,
With the sun in the sky,
I'm feeling alone
So far from home

It's not been the same
I'm wasting every day
Got nothing else to do
But thinking about you
But it's over
And it's over, now

It's the end of the day
I'm feeling afraid,
'Cause I just want you, I just want you

And it's the end of the day
I'm feeling ashamed,
'Cause I just want you, I just want you
to know
Track Name: Coloured Dreams
Under stormy nights
You wallow in the deep
She knows just where to find you when you're
Running out of sleep

She takes me by the hand
As simple as it seems
You don't even look back when she's
Colouring your dreams

She's the one who shows you when you're in a quiet stream
Or underneath the covers, when you're in a bad, bad dream
I guess I'm growing older, it's hard to know that this ain't real
I don't care what's out there, no ones gonna find me here
