Track Name: Alright
How can you know somebody
When everyone's playing those games?
Selling you the face of somebody
And giving you a stranger's name

I know it's hard to wear your life on your sleeve
But let go and try to believe that...

It's alright
To bring it down
I'm gonna shine some light
It's your time to feel it now
This is where wrong turns right

Where did we get the idea
To doctor up the tale we tell?
Trying to pretend the idea
Will put us in a world of wealth

I know it's hard to trust that you are enough
But letting go is not giving up 'cause...

It's alright
To bring it down
I'm gonna shine some light
It's your time to feel it now
This is where wrong turns right

Couldn't we be so much better
Than dueling lies?
Nothing brings our lives together
Like honest eyes and sparing words

It's alright
To bring it down
I'm gonna shine some light
It's your time to feel it now
This is where wrong turns right
Track Name: We Are Why
Headway through changes
More answers still left to know
They're calling our name

Last year weighs heavy
Seems there's a long way to go
For you and me

Don't you stop now
There's a ­­­­­love coming down
It brings us closer every try

You and I
We are why

Scared of forever
Distraction keeps moving on
It's pulling at her

Lost in confusion
Words keep us busy till we're gone
And nothing done

Bring your heart back
There's a love we can match
It brings us closer every try

You and I
We are why

Don't you stop now
There's a ­­­­­love coming down
It brings us closer every try

You and I
We are why
Track Name: Bring Love Alive
I need to know she's here
Beyond the broken years flying by
This lonely man

If I believe in trust
Is it enough for love to believe
In who I am?

I look for faith in an empty room
Let me find you
'Cause I need her hand
To make this dream breathe again

Bring love alive
Bring her tonight
I'm on my knees
Keep love alive
Keep her in sight
I'm on my knees

I've gotta hold some ground
Or I will surely drown in the wake
Of falling tears

If I can turn from doubt
Maybe I'll hear the sound of her voice
Erasing fears

I look for hope in a rhyme of words
Let me find her
'Cause I need her hand
To make this dream breathe again

Bring love alive
Bring her tonight
I'm on my knees
Keep love alive
Keep her in sight
I'm on my knees

A soothing smile
A brush of skin
A whispered why
Lets a spark back in
To kindle the fire again
And bring love alive

Bring love alive
Bring her tonight
I'm on my knees
Keep love alive
Keep her in sight
I'm on my knees
Track Name: Losing You
I made a mistake
By losing you
I close my eyes
And see the truth

I played in your game
To be with you
Dried my eyes
And dared to choose
I walked outside
And dared to lose

But losing you
Is the way back to me
And knowing who I'll be
'Cause losing you
Is the way to truly be
The man who you need
You'll see

I made a mistake
Believing you
It took some time
To break in two

I thought I was safe
In trusting you
Opened my eyes
Lies came through
With no disguise
I saw you

But losing you
Is the way back to me
And knowing who I'll be
'Cause losing you
Is the way to truly be
The man who you need

You'll see
That love can be
A chance to lose your fear
And give into the here and now

But losing you
Is the way back to me
And knowing who I'll be
'Cause losing you
Is the way to truly be
The man who you need
You'll see
Track Name: Angel Moon
When the sun decides to hide
I begin to wonder where you are
Such a sweet and tender light
Drawing my attention from the start
That's you, pulling on my heart again

If I could wake up in your arms
I would find a home inside your eyes
Lose the taste for falling stars
Say goodbye to dark and cloudy skies
That's you, pulling on my heart again
That's you, telling me to try again
Angel Moon

You spin me 'round
Passing by just out of reach
I can't help trying
To stop the world and bring you down to me
A simple dream to love you, Angel Moon

I know I have to brave the days
To earn the time I spend in your view
A patient passion for your face
Giving me a lonely year or two
That's you, pulling on my heart again

When I have mended all the cracks
Maybe it will stay a clear night
Till then I'll give all I have
Just to catch a whisper of your light
That's you, pulling on my heart again
That's you, telling me to love again
Angel Moon

You spin me 'round
Passing by just out of reach
I can't help trying to stop the world
And bring you down to me
A simple dream to love you, Angel Moon
Track Name: Hold Out
You give me up and run
When what you fear has won
No time to trust anyone

I see what's coming now
The heavy load crashing down
It's not our first time around

Must be this
You're scared of moving on
Without a certainty of bliss
Doubt is strong

If we can hold out
For more than surrender
Then we can hold on
To right now, forever
Don't let go
Just listen to the silence
Hear we know, again

You know me now and yet
Deny the truth instead
Of finding love you can mend

I feel you breathing out
Impending breakdown
If giving in carries on

It's still the same
You're scared of moving on
With all the suffering and pain
Doubt is strong

If we can hold out
For more than surrender
Then we can hold on
To right now, forever
Don't let go
Just listen to the silence
Hear we know, again

Must be this
You're scared of moving on
Without a certainty of bliss
Doubt is strong

If we can hold out
For more than surrender
Then we can hold on
To right now, forever
Don't let go
Just listen to the silence
Hear we know, again
Track Name: Behave
Why don't I take my time
And get to know her?
My younger years don't lie
Too fast, you get hurt

Why do they always feel so right
Then go wrong?
Maybe this time I'll leave the brakes on

Behave
Just hold your tongue now
Don't let love slip out
Behave
You're worth the time now
To figure love out
Behave
There's room in life for here and now

I'm gonna find that place
Between love and lonely
Where I can stay the same
But travel slowly

Why do I always give so much
For love gone?
Maybe this time I'll leave the brakes on

Behave
Just hold your tongue now
Don't let love slip out
Behave
You're worth the time now
To figure love out
Behave
There's room in life for here and now

Why do I always give so much
For love gone?
Maybe this time I'll leave the brakes on

Behave
Just hold your tongue now
Don't let love slip out
Behave
She's worth the time now
To figure love out
Behave
There's room in life for here and now
Track Name: I Don't Want It
I lift you up
You put me down
I gave you trust
But you didn't know how

I took your hand
You let me go
I changed my plans
But you'll never know

Giving me that look
Trying to push, push all the time
All those things you took
Still you push, push over the line on me but...

I don't want it
I don't want what you need
No, I don't want it
I don't want it for me
You know that I don't want it
I don't want what you see
Save your dream for someone else
I don't want you living for me

You send me pain
I make it mine
You want my name
I still wonder why

You find my flaws
I make it right
You say I'm wrong
I start to question this fight

Giving me that look
Trying to push, push all the time
All those things you took
Still you push, push over the line on me but...

I don't want it
I don't want what you need
No, I don't want it
I don't want it for me
You know that I don't want it
I don't want what you see
Save your dream for someone else
I don't want you living for me

I could have loved you if you'd only let me be myself
Instead you broke me down and cried when I wouldn't help
I thought I heard that love can heal it if you just make time
But the signs of fading love means it's time to say goodbye

You know that I don't want it
I don't want what you need
No, I don't want it
I don't want it for me
You know that I don't want it
I don't want what you see
Save your dream for someone else
I don't want you living for me
Track Name: Heart
She had me spinning
And fighting for air
A losing battle
And no time to spare
There's no right answer when you
Have her past to bear

I couldn't do it
The fight was too hard
My mind was breaking
And I fell apart
It's second guessing that'll question
Who you are

And who are you
When no matter what you do
It's pain you choose?

My heart has a lot to do
Before I fall into
My heart's gonna have to wait
Before a love can stay

The fog is clearing
I'm feeling the light
The sign's in focus
So I start to drive
Yeah it's a long one but a
Road I have to try

I'm finding pieces
And showing them how
I go together like a puzzle now
Too many heartaches and you
Take to breaking down

My heart has a lot to do
Before I fall into
My heart's gonna have to wait
Before a love can stay

I'd have sent you a message
But I couldn't find your number
To tell you that you'd lost your way
It's the wrong ones that lead us
To a better feel for home
But a heart has gotta heal right
Before new love can stay

My heart has a lot to do
Before I fall into
My heart's gonna have to wait
Before a love can stay
Track Name: Same Situation
I went and I broke my love today
Opened my hand and dropped away
I wish that I knew which way was real
And which way wouldn't let me heal

It figures I'd walk this road again
It's part of the lonely man I am
Waiting for traffic lights to change
And bring this love home today
A foolish rhyme to say
But half of why I sing this way

It's the same situation
That's teaching me how to fall
I need a new revelation
To keep me going through it all

I thought that I gave up feeling down
Closed up shop and left this town
It's funny how a girl can pull the strings
And send me back to giving in

One of these days the game will end
And I will be holding on instead
Till then I can only open doors
And hope that love can show me more
Than where I've been before
And why I should believe anymore

It's the same situation
That's teaching me how to fall
I need a new revelation
To keep me going through it all
It's the same complication
That's showing what I haven't learned
I need a new resolution
To keep my love from getting burned again

Don't take for granted
These chances to try
Sometimes our weakness
Is what keeps us alive
Tear off your armor
Let your heart take its place
And love today

It's the same situation
That's teaching me how to fall
I need a new revelation
To keep me going through it all
It's the same complication
That's showing what I haven't learned
I need a new resolution
To keep my love from getting burned again
Track Name: Who's Gonna Save You?
We play
Tempting fate
Without wearing other shoes
Selfish stays

But in time
You and I
Will have fixing up to do
And eyes to dry

We can see
The signs are there
But nobody wants to read
We can feel
The wind will change
Forget how you want it to be
One day blinded minds will break

Who's gonna save you?
When the sky takes to falling
And nobody's left but you
Who's gonna save you?
When the truth is calling
And there's nothing left to do
Who's gonna save you?

We try
Try to hide
From those hurtful blows we deal
And act surprised

But you can't
Fool a man
Who's been beaten down and still
Takes a stand

We can feel
The wounds are there
But nobody wants to bleed
We can see
The path we make
Forget how you want it to be
One day hollow choices break

Who's gonna save you?
When the sky takes to falling
And nobody's left but you
Who's gonna save you?
When the truth is calling
And there's nothing left to do
Who's gonna save you?

We've only got ourselves
When things are at their worst
No one else will help
When they're the ones you hurt
Deep down you know

Who's gonna save you?
When the sky takes to falling
And nobody's left but you
Who's gonna save you?
When the truth is calling
And there's nothing left to do
Who's gonna save you?
