Track Name: Buried Cold
tonight it's buried cold
tonight it's your hand in mine
and it doesn't fit and it doesn't feel right
tonight it's out of control
tonight it's me screaming inside my skin
and it doesn't fit and it doesn't feel right

I'd give anything to feel numb again
I'd give anything to feel you but I
I can't let go of the smoke screen that keeps me
from falling apart

how can I say it so you'll understand
I'd scream it until it hurts but it'd be of no use
cuz I don't mean much more to you than that passive smile on your face
and in every empty glass
I start to see reflections of you inside
and I know you see through me
I've known every step of the way

I'd give anything to feel numb again
I'd give anything to feel you but I
I can't let go of the smoke screen that keeps me
from falling apart

I'm falling apart
it's the only thing that keeps me
don't take it, don't take it away
I'd give anything I'd give anything
I'd give anything to feel numb again
I'd give anything to feel you but I
I can't let go of the smoke screen that keeps me
from falling apart
Track Name: Take Me Away
Its just this one time I say to myself
its just this one thought but I could if you would
and the moon is high tonight
still holding me in its stillness
its just this ache for you again in me rising
its just a thought of you
my muse my love still takes my breath away

I don't care where we go
I don't care if we ever find home
we're half way to the sky
its enough to hear you say take me away,
take me away from here love
and maybe that's half way to nowhere,
maybe it's half way somewhere closer for me
and it's so careless of you to steal me heart away,
you steal my heart away

it feels like only yesterday,
two strangers caught in chances way
from that moment with you staring into me
and the lightening caught the sky
and we just sat there staring in the pouring rain
if the rain would fall down right now,
it would call me to the window pane and I'd see you
standing alone with your arms open wide
and I'd say take me away take me away from here love

I don't care where we go. I don't care if we ever find home.
maybe it's half way to nowhere, maybe its half way somewhere closer for me
and it's so careless of you to steal my heart away. You steal my heart away

you take me away
I don't care where we go. I don't care if we ever find home.
its enough to hear you say take me away, take me away from here love
and maybe that's half way to nowhere,
maybe it's half way somewhere closer for me
and it's so careless of you to steal me heart away,
you steal my heart away
Track Name: These City Lights
Hold on two rounds to go
keep your feet up keep your hands up blocking you
can you see the light
from the window will you
still be waiting still be
wide eyed child coming back to stare at me

Well close the door on your way out
don't catch this drift, don't catch this cold
seeping into me from you
I know what have these city lights put you through
keep your head up keep your chin up
smile that smile they'll say
but go ahead let your scream out into the sky and I will find you
let me find you let me find you
just let this storm in your head pass through

hold on hold on hold on hold on
two rounds to go
keep your feet up keep your hands up blocking you from me
and can you see the light from the window will you still be waiting for me
still be waiting wide eyed child coming back to stare at me

Well close the door on your way out
don't catch this drift, don't catch this cold
seeping into me from you
don't turn away, tell me what you’re feeling
tell me how I'm hurting you
well tell me how, tell me how to win you back
tell me how to find your heart again
tell me what these city lights have done to you
what they've put you through and I will find you
I swear to you I'll find you.
Track Name: Under the Picture Frame
I've got to get out of this place
it's like I wake up just to pick the repeat
like I'm the one who's been swept up and out of place
like I'm under the picture frame kept hidden
tying but failing it's so hard to be heard above the noise

You stay beautiful, hiding under the picture frame
oh I used to be
take a good look at me
smiling under the picture frame
oh my colors fade to gray
am I, am I slowly fading away

I've got to bring my head above the surface
like I'm the one who caught your eye this time
glad I could make love tidy
beautiful cellophane, beautiful you remain
like I'm under the picture frame kept hidden
trying but failing to be heard above the noise

You stay beautiful, hiding under the picture frame
oh I used to be
take a good look at me
smiling under the picture frame
oh my colors fade to gray
how could you not see me slowly fading away

But you had your chance and you're not welcome to look this time
Like I'm under the picture frame kept hidden
trying but failing to be heard above the noise

beautiful, hiding under the picture frame
oh I used to be
take a good look at me
smiling under the picture frame
Oh I used to be
Track Name: Wrong Side of the Sky
I feel the board sink beneath my feet
and I can't help but feel
it's all lost integrity

you play your part and I'll play mine
like two figurines in love
we'll be settling for candy coated shells
they were meant to be torn apart

and we weren't meant to be lover
we were meant to be on the wrong side of the sky
because she doesn't come apart
she doesn't bleed out quite like me

no need to worry lover
you were right when you said
love is a moth in a flame
but you can't feel anything
lover, just say it
you don't feel anything

you play your part and I'll play mine
like two figurines in love
we'll be settling for candy coated shells
they were meant to be torn apart
they were meant to be torn apart

but we weren't meant to be lover
we were meant to be
on the wrong side of the sky
because she doesn't come apart
at the seams
oh she doesn't bleed out quite like me

it's all lost integrity
and I don't feel anything lover
I don't feel anything
Track Name: Little Known Truth
the light doesn't fall evenly on your face
its okay you say, it doesn't half to anyway
and you know I prefer breathing with you in the shadows anyway
love was never spoken so clearly
when it comes from you it leaves your eyes
and I 'll know where to find it, know where to take it
and if it's you and me
Oh wait for me, don't let me walk away
there's a truth here that's only you and me
there's no wasted breath you say there's no wasted time you say

and seasons break outside
it's okay you say, you don't have to invite them in anyway
and oh, it feels like I'm half way down that path leading away from you
never spoken so softly when comes from you
Oh wait for me, don't let me walk away
don't let me push you away
if it's only you and me I don't mind

don't look at me like that
makes me feel like, I'm going crazy, I'm going crazy, without you crazy
Oh wait for me, don't let me walk away
don't let me push you away
if it's just me and you
I don't mind if only you and me
Track Name: Lifeline
Your lifeline abandoning you
the sky's growing darker there's no one coming to rescue you
with your empty hands you've been reaching out to nowhere
what does it all mean you ask yourself the question we all seem to bleed

if you're not breathing life into you
doesn't matter what the person next to you is feeling or doing or saying
hiding and broken I know it's painful inside trying to find

misery is comforting you
no expectations keep your hand on the off switch
that's comforting too
with your empty hands you've been reaching out to nowhere
what does it all mean you ask yourself the question we all seem to bleed

if you're not breathing life into you
doesn't matter what the person next to you is feeling or doing or saying
hiding and broken I know it's painful inside trying to find pieces of themselves
and they can't find it so they look for it inside of you
and they take without even asking, take it without even knowing
oh they take it without even trying

silent shades of gray become you and me become you and me
if you're not breathing life into you
doesn't matter what the person next to you is feeling or doing or saying
hiding and broken I know it's painful inside trying to find
What are you trying to find
Track Name: Lucid Dreamer
I'm so tired of being the shadow lining the wall
watching every memory of you departing from me
searching windows and corridors for traces of me
I get lost inside this dream again
it's all too familiar ghosts of you pass me by
it's back again just like before I find myself at your door
it's back again and there's no way to dissolve this
I can feel your breath, behind me, inside me

I can't wake from this dream
it's tortuous and torrid
these fantasies again
where I can't breathe without you breathing into me
you lead me through these empty corridors again
doesn't matter how my body shakes I can't get you out of me
Oh it's back again
there's no way to dissolve this
I can feel your breath, behind me, inside me

I can't wake from this dream
it's tortuous and torrid
these fantasies again
Oh can I breathe without you breathing into me
you lead me through these empty corridors again
lucid dreamer release me
lucid dreamer release me
Track Name: Hesitation
You've carried me so far out
the shoreline's all but nothing now
and every direction I turn to leads me back to you
but it's nothing I expected
nothing I couldn't handle I thought the rules were simple
and there's a piece of me that wants you to close that door
but is it too much I'm asking is it too much for me to want you to stay, stay
it's cruel that everything I feel means nothing,
to you everything I've said means nothing
still I'll feel you when you're nowhere near me
too long have you haunted me

Darling there's no solid ground to hold onto it all falls so softly away
left over pieces are not enough,
enough to keep me together I can't stop
the water from rising
is it too much I'm asking, is it too much
I need you to stay, stay
it's cruel that everything I feel means nothing
to you everything I've said means nothing
still I feel you when you're nowhere near me
too long have you haunted me

I walk alone in hesitation
it's blindly scarring me
it's too much, too far, too long I don't think I can take this
and when it all falls away
I'll still feel you when you're nowhere near me
oh why, oh why
do I walk alone
why was it never you and me
and I walk alone
