Track Name: Signed with Love
These four walls
Move in closer
It's so easy to see
The ending to the story

But no one thinks that he's the villain
We all have out reasons
Remind yourself
Of all the things left said and unsaid

Can you close your eyes
And not relive it
Does it surface cold and colder
My heart beats
So close so far away
The last word and then the silence
Signed with love

Let's not forget, you chose
Every battle that you lose
Life goes on and on and on
Outside these four walls

But everyone thinks that they're the victim
We all have our reasons
Remind yourself
Of all the things said and unsaid

You paint a clean escape
On your spineless page
It's just a lame attempt
And it's not your first wreck

Signed with love
love, love, so far away
Track Name: Midnight Eyes
I never know just where to begin
Thoughts of you and me
They kaleidoscope Inside my head and I
Never know just what to say around you
But your hands on mine
Feel like some kind of truth and

Here we are, between the lines
And I can't think of a better way
To say that I'm taken in by you
Lost in your midnight eyes

Where do I begin
You have this habit of unraveling me down to the strands
And you can see every truth behind
These lines I right so

Here we are, between the lines
And I can't think of a better way
To say that I'm taken in by you and yet
Here you are, half way through
Ten years of my solid defenses
I never cared for consequences
I'll stay here lost in your midnight eyes

So unravel me, unravel me
with your midnight eyes

Maybe I'll just stay here for a while
Take this all in
And let these thoughts of you and me
Collide inside my head
Track Name: Heart of It
Brace yourself we're letting it out
Of the cage, it was bound to break away
Breach the heart and shatter
Letting go of the old familiar phrase

Spiral down the lightless path
And repeat the cycle like you do
Bear your heart and hands
With palms open and out
Let the world read it out loud
But you've got to find your breath deeper in
It goes on and on and on

Get down to the heart of it
Just, break down there's nothing left to lose
Barely breathing in now
Get down to the heart of it now

Wave on wave of past regret
Swallow whole the heart ache like you do
Your hands on the surface of
The slow motion disaster
You hold onto
But you've got to find your breath deeper in
It goes on and on and on

Get down to the heart of it
Just, break down there's nothing left to lose
Right down to the heart of it
Just, get down to the heart of it now

So hold on, it goes on and on and on

Feel the walls crack and splinter
It's not so slowly creeping in now
Brace yourself, brace yourself
It was bound to break out
Brace yourself, brace yourself
It all works out in the end
Track Name: Romancing the Ordinary
The circus is closed tonight
And our heroine is down tonight
On the floor

Center stage is empty tonight
The trapeze swings silent
With her corset unlaced
Painted smile on her face
Silence embrace
Out goes the spotlight

On her own, feeling rather low
Holding on, beneath the street light glow
Could you stay, just stay close tonight
No more, no more romancing the ordinary

The city freezes tonight
And our heroine can't sleep tonight

Away from the crowd
The sight and the sound
Runaway train
Caught in the blaze

She comes and goes
Leaving prints in the snow
She's played her role
No more pretending

It's a long way down
And I just can't let them watch me fall again
The crowd is calling, I don't care
There's no show to see up here

The circus is closed tonight
Our heroine, she's down tonight
Smile erased, her reality in place
All feels the same
It all feels the same
Track Name: Find Beauty
Oh I'm at the bottom of the barrel again
Counting the scars
But some day, I'll walk out of these halls
Some day the windows won't seem quite so far away
I'll feel the sunlight drown the rain

Oh you've been searching for so long
Wake up dear, wake up
And find beauty again
You will find beauty again
It's too much lately
Too much lately

Oh I'm lying faintly below the surface again
Ambitions wasting away
But some day, I'll step out of the maze
Some day the surface won't seem quite so far away
I'll feel the sunlight drown the rain

I'm so sick and tired of holding it all back
I'm so sick of this traitor heart of mine
That keeps me from feeling
Feeling alive

It's time to wake up dear
And I can feel, feel the sunlight drowning the rain
Track Name: All in My Head
Don't think I made back it
From the world beyond the glass
Must still be lying dreaming
Cause I don't feel the way I ought to

Feel like the hero
Who makes it through the dark
And not the child who counts her failures
I don't know where to start
To make this right

Just say it's true, I'll believe I need you
Oh I need you to tell me it's alright
It's all in my head, I'm just fine

Each path I take comes back to
Another point that won't make sense
Must still be lost in the middle
Cause I don't feel the way I ought to

Feel like the hero
Who figured out the clues
And not child lost in the fairytale
I don't know what to do
To make this right

And when the nonsense starts to make sense
It's time to leave
Well I'm giving up
And I've had enough
Someone show me the door out of Wonderland
Track Name: Happiness
I thought I felt connected from the start to you
Unquestionably I see now a different truth
Oh darling your eyes, they say it all

I wish I didn't see it
So clearly now

I'm sure you're happy now
With all your pieces all laid out for you
Are you happy now

Well if you wanted to master the game of cat and mouse
Congratulations you've won the final round
Oh but darling your eyes, they say it all

I'm sure you're happy now
With all your pieces all laid out for you
Are you darling
Are you happy now

Oh things seem to fit so perfectly
On the edge of this knife
You're walking a thin line
Darling, darling are you happy this time

So now that it's passed you by
Don't you think maybe it could've been something
So now that it's passed you by
Are you happy this time
Track Name: Beautiful Machine
Blink once, twice
Is there anybody there
Is there anyone who cares that I've
Torn out the inside

Is there anybody there
Is there anyone who knows that I'm
Stained in lies

Hold my hand in your hands
It clears the darkness out
Such a beautiful machine
Wish I could
Love the way you do

Breathe once, twice
Sitting porcelain pretty
Can't convince myself that I believe
No matter how I try

Do you ever get the fear
That the premise you are standing on
Will fall away

If you stay close to me
You can make the storm fade

You're a beautiful machine
Wish I could
Love the way you do

If you stay close to me
You can make the storm fade away

I want out, I want out
Beautiful machine
I want out, I want out
Take the darkness away
Track Name: Laced in My Skin
Red dawn
A new day rising on
Just empty sheets
And empty stairs left behind
I feel the same
Nothing has really changed
Except the loss
The loss of my only way

The future swells
The memories fade
These feelings come
And quietly go away
And to this day
I never learned what went wrong
I don't know
But I'll never feel quite at home without you

I'm alone I wish I could hate you
I'm alone I wish I could blame you
I know the way, I've never been so scared

You're laced within my skin
Track Name: Carried Away
Time to put the pen away
I don't want to recall
How I've said all the wrong things
At the right time

And as I turn this page
It seems a little forced
A little strained

I can't explain the blank
I am drawing from
But it's a scene between you and me
That plays over and over again

I'll just get carried away
Don't let me get so carried away

It's not an easy choice to make
Say goodbye or do I stay
When the music changes
I think that you should know
I'm not the same
My heart is not the same
It's not the same

As I'm driving the road
A single cloud in the desert sky
I know what you'd say
If I told you what scene I saw it in
It was of you and me
It plays over and over again
Track Name: Spinning the Room Around
String of lights, a thousand eyes
Shifting in the crowd
Frozen in my place on the stage
It doesn't take too long
To find you there

One pair of haunting eyes
I'm drawn to your light
You're that moment
The world went silent
The room in motion

I hear the sound, it's drowning out
How can I think straight when you're spinning the room
Feeling the weight of the endless debate
How can I see straight when you're spinning the room

One small movement your hand in motion
They fall on her hands
Heart hits the floor my knees follow course
It doesn't take me long
To read in your stare

One pair of haunted eyes
My lungs are caving
She's that moment
The world is silent
The room in motion

Now you move in so close
Please stop, don't watch
I'm pretty sure I've stopped breathing
I can't speak when you're digging the knife
So deep, so deep
Track Name: Distant Shores
I don't know where this fear comes from
In my head
Sometimes it were dead
And it would stop haunting me

I don't know where I come from
It's far from here
But I never went back to there
Cause they had nothing for me

And I never went home too much
I didn't know
They didn't want me there
I don't know what I am meant for now

Starlit hillside
Distant sunrise
Shadows in disguise

I close my eyes and you're standing there
Hand in hand your distant stare
I remember what you said to me
Every day I try to find
Something simple in my mind
I don't know what I am searching for now

You don't remember me
But I remember you
Every where we went in June
It was so peaceful

I've always felt so alone
It's hard to be
Anything but lonely
After so much time

On the edge of
Night and day
Two heatbeats sound the same

You don't know me but I know you
We met on distant shores
