Somehow I walked into a catastrophe Is this really happening, I ask myself Someone broke into my safest memories And took a piece of me, I can’t get back Well I’m more than what I have, the less that I become Am I bigger than this, I’ll ask before I start again Well you can take everything, please just leave my friends Picking up the pieces to this broken place Where nothing stayed the same, neither have I Is there any justice in the turns of fate I’ll take my turn and wait, for better things to come Well I’m thankful for what I have, I don’t require so much And I’m better with less, much less, but this I can’t pretend Well you can take everything,please just leave my friends Tell me how you measure one’s true happiness Tell me how you gauge one’s success When there’s nothing left to use, that isn’t broken or bruised May you have someone to love and someone who loves you Well I’m more than what I have, the less that I become Am I bigger than this, I’ll ask before I start again Well you can take everything, please just leave my friends

Why are you still waiting, what is it you’re waiting for This anchor you’ve become I don’t recognize anymore Excuses that you never seem to mind Watching you is watching time go by If you can run, then run If you can run, then run Nothing ever stays, as it was before The fears that you own are the fears you can't ignore Pinning pictures up against your wall Places you wish to see but never go If you can run, then run If you can run, then run Whenever you can , however you want If you can run , then run If this were not true, i would have told you so I always believed in you, just thought you should know If you can run, then run If you can run, then run Whenever you can , however you want If you can run , then run

Lucky 03:43
Born into the bones, you were made this way Maybe raised this way, who could tell Did anybody teach you how to stand up straight Learn to act your age, well you might as well Throw me your life line, show me that big grin Tell me i’m lucky, tell me i'm lucky So glad that you’ve made it, when I never even make it Tell me I’m lucky, tell me i'm lucky An unbearable witness to the best laid plans A victim of circumstance caught in the undertow Well beyond the reach and so far below Hey stick with what you know, yeah stick with what you know Throw me your life line, show me that big grin Tell me i’m lucky, tell me i'm lucky So glad that you’ve made it, when I never even make it Tell me I’m lucky, tell me i'm lucky And everybody's luck can always change

I'm a slow spinning wheel moving along in this life With dreams of my own that puncture the night like the starlight A drop in the sea, it's all by degrees , measured by the heart Continuing my slow march I'm a slow moving train everyone writes on my side Travel alone, beneath the night sky When it's all that you know, steady as she goes, bearings of the heart Directing me, my slow march Tra la la la, me my oh my What a promising start Here I go again, my slow march
5.
Well you can tell me about the sunrise side The early risers and the right on times But I prefer the slower slide of the sun I’ll watch you closely Descending without a sound Colors streaming sideways And its only for a moment and you don't dare turn around When the sun turns down Wouldn't have it any other way Couldn't drag me to another place It's here where I will stay I will stay I’ll watch you closely Descending without a sound Colors streaming sideways And its only for a moment and you don't dare turn around When the sun turns down

Some Company 03:26
Two birds sing in a summer tree, declaring what they already know Better to sing with someone, then having to sing alone Call and I’ll answer you, no pause or delay Maybe you could use someone to pass a few hours away Don't mind if i follow you I have nowhere else to be I promise not to slow you down Maybe you might find that you could use Some company Everyone can use a passenger, someone to share the view Someone to entertain, someone to be amused Travel down an unmarked road, destination we don't know Power lines and empty skies, comfort in tales already told Don't mind if i follow you I have nowhere else to be I promise not to slow you down Maybe you might find that you could use Some company Don't have much to offer you, that you don't already know Direction i don't need to know, i'll go wherever you go Don't mind if i follow you I have nowhere else to be I promise not to slow you down Maybe you might find that you could use Some company

If You Could 03:52
Tell me how we get back to where we started Seems like such a long while ago Right after the kiss, long before the breakdown Tell me how you reap what you sow Only if you could If you could If you could Well you know I will Tell me that the stars will always keep on shining And hers will be the brightest of them all Even though we know it's only from the dying Long after the stars already gone Only if you could If you could If you could Well you know I will You and I , it's never been the easy way It's never been the easy way, for you and I This worlds not meant for us When it's you I love Forever always, forever always Silence pressing down with the weight of starting over The circle breaks and were undone Were undone

Misery enjoyed my company, but I've already stayed too long Tell the other that I'm leaving What a gracious invitation, now it's time to say goodbye If you should ever need to find me Look on the brighter side I don't even know which way to go Its so unfamiliar to me Now i'm off and i am moving I never saw it coming, imagine my surprise If you should ever need to find me Look on the brighter side Now i'm off to where the sun shines bright And I know that you're always close behind Well this misery enjoyed my company But i really must be moving on And you know i can't forget you, forget you Remembering your face and what hopes left in your eyes If you should ever need to find me, look on the brighter side

Love Someone 04:07
f love was easy it would come in twos One love for me and one for you And this would last and it would have no end No date of return, no loss to learn With the empty rows, as the last song ends And there's noone left to console you Are you strong enough Are you hard enough Are you brave enough To love someone Love is patient and it takes all kinds The more that you give the more you find Nothing stops this world from spinning around For every love lost, one is found And flowers you lay, on a cold march day Against the dirty snow and a sky so gray Are you strong enough Are you hard enough Are you brave enough To love someone

Want You 03:38
Well you're quiet in this crowded room Doesn't mean you're insecure Attention can be hard to hold When you’re easily misunderstood Far from you to say anything I know, never one to complain So funny, so funny how Everyone wants you now Everywhere you should belong Patient waiting to begin The view is never quite the same On the outside always looking in Far from you to say anything I know, never one to complain So funny, so funny how Everyone wants you now They want you They want you now They want you For every downturned eye Every time you hold your breath When there's no replay To the letters you so carefully send To the letters you so carefully send Far from you to say anything I know, never one to complain So funny, so funny how Everyone wants you now They want you They want you now They want you
