Track Name: This Time
(lyrics)

Outta sight
Didn't put up a fight
Now I wonder if you're right
This time

Down and out
Now I'm found out
Another Saturday night out
Wastin' time

Now I'm complicated
But I'm not quite elated
To hear your point of view
I guess I'm going to
I'll take a seat
I won't make you repeat
What you want to say
I know you've got a lot to say
I know you've got a lot to say
This time

Come and go
Now the true colors show
Feelin' left out of the know
Time after time

Break it down
Out on the streets of this town
Gonna take another round
Can ya do the time

Now I'm complicated
But I'm not quite elated
To hear your point of view
I know you really want me to
I'll take a seat
I won't make you repeat
What you've come to say
I know you've got a lot to say
I know you've got a lot to say
This time
I know you've got a lot to say
This time

Track Name: Came To This
(lyrics)

You watch the telephone so patiently
And I leave you quite alone, that's kind of me
I'm having trouble lately remembering my name
Wish I could forget the rules of this sad game

I would like to know
I would like to know how
How it ever came to this
How ever did we miss

A life made of memories and photographs
Those were the days and we could always laugh
I'm having trouble lately knowing who I am
Wish I could remember if I gave a damn

I would like to know
I would like to know how
How it ever came to this
How ever did we miss
I would like to know
But I will never know how
How it ever came to this
And is this happiness

Follow a dream into the deep sunset
These are the days that we must not forget
I'm having trouble lately knowing what to say
How can you turn back when we've come all this way

I would like to know
I would like to know how
How it ever came to this
How ever did we miss
I would like to know
But I will never know how
How it ever came to this
It ever came to this
We never wanted this
We never wanted-

Never wanted this
Never wanted this
Never wanted this
Never wanted this

Track Name: Another Life
(lyrics)

Darling
Can I thank you for the warning
We'll pick up pieces in the morning
And I guess I'll have to find you in

Another life
Where I'll be just what you wanted
We'll be just gettin' started
Maybe in another life
We'll be happy to be there
We won't have even one care
And nothing left to prove

Darling
Now I see how I've been blinded
Now I need to be reminded
And I will be waiting for you in

Another life
Where I'll be just what you wanted
Where we can never be parted
Maybe there's another life
We are willing to wait for
I am dying to live for
With nothing left to prove

Darling
There's no use in our pretending
And it's alright to reach an ending
'Cause I know I'll find you in

Another life
Where I'll be just what you wanted
We'll be just gettin' started
Maybe in another life
We'll be so happy to be there
We'll find the answer to our prayers
And nothing left to prove

Track Name: Set Me Free
(lyrics)

I don't know where I'll be tomorrow
My world is torn apart
I watched you walk away from me
Watched you end it by degree

Well you will never know how much
You hurt me
But you will know how cold
A heart can be
You'll never know the love
The love that sets me free
Well it sets me free

Walk along this road to nowhere
I feel your presence close and dark
In the distance are you calling out
Is this how you hoped it would turn out

Well you will never know just what
You were to me
But you will know how cold
This world can be
You'll never know the love
The love that sets me free
Well it sets me free

I don't know where I'll be tomorrow
Our world is fading away
I'm hanging on each word you said
Hold on 'til this love is dead

Well you will never know how much
You hurt me
But you will know how cold
A heart can be
You'll never know the love
The love that sets me free
Well it sets me free
Set me free

Track Name: Ordinary Way
(lyrics)

Would it complicate matters
If I missed your smile
My life is still the same
After all this while
Ordinary days, ordinary ways
Of wanting you

Could it be any sadder
When you hide your tears
Has nothing really changed
After all these years
Ordinary days, ordinary ways
Of wanting you

And you never had a clue
Or gave a second thought
Love can't find you where you are
That's not what you were taught
But you never take the chance
Always too much to lose
It's easier to make amends
And never have to choose

But I won't wait any longer
Just to feel your touch
I never ever guessed
It would mean this much

Ordinary days, ordinary ways
Of wanting
Waiting for the day, believing in the way
I'm wanting you
Ordinary days, ordinary ways
Of wanting you
Wanting you
Wanting you

Track Name: Good Again
(lyrics)

You were one in a million
I was ready to kill you
With your borderline type personality
I was caught in the middle
In a world of trouble
Couldn't face a life outside these walls
Replay each unanswered call, but I'm

Startin' to feel good again
Didn't know if I had one single friend
I'm ready to take you on again
We'll start a brand new day

I was taking for granted
Thought the world was slanted
I was losing touch with some reality
And I already know you
I've been meaning to show you
I just need some time to sort things out
Do you think you might help me out, 'cause I'm

Startin' to feel good again
Didn't know if I had one single friend
I'm ready to take you on again
And maybe learn this lesson in time

Startin' to feel good again
Startin' to feel
Startin' to feel good again
Startin' to feel

Track Name: All Over Town
(lyrics)

You've got a lot on your mind
And I'm not the dangerous kind
You bring me down to my knees
You shatter my world with ease

Well it's all over town
How your love broke me down
It's all over town
And I know how you love the sound

You come apart at the seams
You're following pipe dreams
There's a benefit to the cost
And you're writing off what you lost, what you lost

Well it's all over town
How your love broke me down
It's all over town
And I know how you love the sound

Love the sound
Love the sound
Love the sound

You're never right for the part
And your life won't imitate art
But you bring me down to my knees
Your love is like a disease, my disease

And it's all over town
How your love broke me down
It's all over town
How your love broke me down
And I know how you love the sound
Love the sound
Love the sound
Love the sound

Track Name: Forgiven
(lyrics)

You and me
Want to be
Forgiven
You and me
We all want to be
Forgiven

So take me there
Take me to the place where I'm not the only one
To the place where the things I've done
Are erased
And forgiven

Here and now
Is only doubt
In living
Here and now
We go without
Your blessing

So take me there
Take me to the place where I am not alone
To the place where I can be known
At last
And forgiven

All around
Is only time
And silence
Crying out
Into the night
Your penance

So take me there
Take me to the place where the rivers flow
To the place where we all must go
Released
Forgiven

Track Name: She'll Come Around
(lyrics)

Don't keep runnin' away from trouble
Got your head in the sand
Don't you know it can only double, won't you
Won't you show your hand

Don't you think you should talk about it
You're gettin' nowhere fast
So she's havin' her doubts about it, don't you
Want your love to last

Well you don't have to be sad and lonely
Don't have to lose what you found
Just take a little advice go slowly
In the end she'll come around
In the end she'll come around
In the end she'll come around

You've been runnin' in place forever
But you've run out of time
And you pick up the pace together, then she
Stops it on a dime

Well it's just part of the process baby
You're gettin' used to the sound
Just try to open your heart and maybe
In the end she'll come around
In the end she'll come around
Don't you let your love die down
In the end she'll come around

Don't you think you should talk about it
You're gettin' nowhere fast
So she's havin' her doubts about it, don't you
Want your love to last

Well it's just part of the process baby
You're gettin' used to the sound
Just try to open your heart and maybe
In the end she'll come around
In the end she'll come around
Don't you let your love die down
In the end she'll come around

Track Name: Love Comes Down
(lyrics)

Clinging to something sane
It's all you can do
Find your way through the pain
That's inside of you

Purge the poison from your veins
More than you knew
Turn your face up to the rains
They'll wash over you

When love comes down from so far away
And leads you out of your darkest day
There's no more obstacles in your way
Don't fight it
You never will deny it
Don't let it go

Open your heart and let it in
And love will take hold
Give in to your only sin
Your chances are sold

When love comes down from so far away
And leads you out of your darkest day
There's no more obstacles in your way
Don't fight it
You never will deny it
Don't let it go

Purge the poison from your veins
More than you knew
Turn your face up to the rains
Let them wash over you

When love comes down from so far away
And leads you out of your darkest day
There's no more obstacles in your way
Don't fight it
You never will deny it
Don't let it go
Don't let it go
Don't let it go
