Track Name: Those Days
Verse 1:
We used to share words
All of those messages
But I feel like it's been ages
And all of this is just absurd

Chorus:
Yea, I guess we're still friends
But it's not the same anymore
Why can't we just go back
To the way we were before

Verse 2:
I remember the first time
At first it was all words
Nothin' more than the single time
It was like a second birth

Chorus:
Yea, I guess we're still friends
But it's not the same anymore
Why can't we just go back
To the way we were before
Track Name: Losing You
Verse 1:
If you ever need someone
If you need someone like me
Move on
Cuz I've been waiting all my life for a girl like you
But now your gone
Now your gone

With no amount of wishing
Will it ever be the same
But I remember when your eyes
Sparkled like a flame

Chorus:
The suns losing this battle
Whoah-whoah-whoah
And the sky is turning grey
Please stay with me
For just another day

Verse 2:
So I pack my stuff and leave
I'll never go back again
I'll never go back again
You said we were through
And I'll never go back to you
I'll never go back to you

With no ammount of wishing
Will it ever be the same
But I remember when your eyes
Sparkled like a flame

Chorus:
The suns losing this battle
Whoah-whoah-whoah
And the sky is turning grey
Please stay with me
For just another day

Bridge:
I'll hold you close to me
No matter where you are
You've shown me what it
means to live
You'll never be to far
You'll never be to far

With no ammount of wishing
Will it ever be the same
But I remember when your eyes
Sparkled like a flame

Chorus:
The suns losing this battle
Whoah-whoah-whoah
And the sky is turning grey
Please stay with me
For just another day
Track Name: Achin'
Verse 1:
All the thing they throw my way
All the hurtful words they say
Why do they seem to hate me
Then I looked up and saw your face
You waved at me time stood in place
Who's soul was set free

I laughed and smiled and sang with you
Did everything you wanted to
I loved you more than you could know
You slipped away and now I'm hurt
But I don't let it show

Chorus:
Here I lean against the wall
Trying to make sense of it all
My heart is achin
These times are oh so bitter sweet
And I just can't take the heat
My heart is achin

Verse 2:
As tears stream down my face
I've traveled to a special place
But I'm still crying
Thinking about when I was flying
But I've missed my chance
I've paid my price
And now I watch as you
Now I'm dying

Now I'm hurting even more
I lie your face into the floor
The way the rain falls on your head
I try to shut it out
But there's still something said

Chorus:
Here I lean against the wall
Trying to make sense of it all
My heart is achin
These times are oh so bitter sweet
And I just can't take the heat
My heart is achin

Bridge:
When I see your eyes
I want to be there by my side
He stepped in and claimed you
It struck me and went straight through
When I spot your face
It puts me in my proper place
I thought you could be my girl
So go ahead and give it a whirl

Chorus:
Here I lean against the wall
Trying to make sense of it all
My heart is achin
These times are oh so bitter sweet
And I just can't take the heat
My heart is achin
Track Name: Crying Next To Me
Verse 1:
Storm passes by
I'm still waiting by the phone
I'm so tired of this
I used to see you lying next to me
But now all I see is myself cryin'

Chorus:
I miss you
Why'd you leave
How could you move on
I miss you
Why can't you stay
Stay with you forever
Till I lay dyin'

Verse 2:
I watch as my life fades away
Without you here beside me what's the point in livin'
I used to see you cryin' next to me
But now all I see is myself dyin'

Chorus:
I miss you
Why'd you leave
How could you move on
I miss you
Why can't you stay
Stay with you forever
Till I lay dyin'

Verse 3:
The storm passes by in the middle of the night
I realize I'm still waitin' for her
There is nothing to say anymore
Just old memories all lies and new regrets

Chorus:
I miss you
Why'd you leave
How could you move on
I miss you
Why can't you stay
Stay with you forever
Till I lay dying
Track Name: I'm Done
Verse 1:
I step outside into a dark cold world
I can't see anything but you
You were my light, you were my love
You were my angel from above
I hope you know that I loved you

And in this race that I have lost
Done with being number two
Hope you know it was all for you
All the nights I cried thinking of you
Only in my dreams am I with you
Now I'm done they won't come true

Chorus:
You were my light you were my love
You were my angel from above
I hope you know that I loved you

Verse 2:
I can't stay you've go to go
My life was high but now it's low
Don't worry you'll find someone new

All the nights you cried thinking of me
And the way that our lives used to be
Just remember that you were the key
To the best of all my memories
Memories!

Chorus:
You were my light you were my love
You were my angel from above
I hope you know that I loved you
I'm sorry babe but now we're through
And I'm done, done with you
Track Name: Believe Me
Verse 1:
You and me
Should run away together
I'd hold you in my arms
To keep you safe forever
We could sit by the shore of the ocean
And stare up at the stars
Girl i want you so bad
You bring me back from mars

I thought I lost you
But I'll never let you go now--
You know you've got to

Chorus:
Believe me! Believe me! (and you know you've got to)
Believe me! Belive me! (and you know you've got to)
Believe in me, believe in me

Verse 2:
Holding hands
Walking along the beach
Anything you want
To keep you close to me
I hurt you
You said move on
I broke your trust
And I lost you

I thought I lost you
But I'll never let you go now--
You know you've got to

Chorus:
Believe me! Believe me! (and you know you've got to)
Believe me! Belive me! (and you know you've got to)
Believe in me, believe in me

Bridge:
Believe in me
Believe in me
Believe in me
Believe in me

Chorus:
Believe me! Believe me! (and you know you've got to)
Believe me! Belive me! (and you know you've got to)
Believe in me, believe in me
Track Name: Suffocating
Verse 1:
You're on my mind
Just sitting here everything is fine
Nothings good without you
Now I'm stuck here counting my tears

Chorus:
And I'm just suffocating
And I'm just here singing
This chorus is for you
And I hope you love me too

Verse 2:
I love the way you smile
Keeps me going for a while
With you here I'm not blind
You blow my mind

Chorus:
And I'm just suffocating
And I'm just here singing
This chorus is for you
And I hope you love me too

Bridge:
I don't know why I'm sitting alone here
Just watching the clock, the clock spin

Chorus:
And I'm just suffocating
And I'm just here singing
And I'm just suffocating
And I'm just here singing
This chorus is for you
And I hope you love me too
Track Name: Road to Nowhere
Verse 1:
Walking on the road to nowhere
Trying to find my way back home
Watching the cars pass by
Searching for god on this road to nowhere
Looking up at the sky
And I look down at the road
But I can't see anything but darkness
So when the room fades

Chorus:
I waited and waited, but you never came
I waited and waited, but things are still the same
I waited and waited, but you never change
I waited and waited, but things are still the same

Verse 2:
Right now I need to know
Do you care about me?
Would you be by my side
Like I wanna be with you
I would change for you
Would you change for me

Chorus:
I waited and waited, but you never came
I waited and waited, but things are still the same
I waited and waited, but you never change
I waited and waited, but things are still the same

Bridge:
I've been waited
For things to be different
I have been waiting
For things to change
I have been waiting
For things to be different

Chorus:
I waited and waited, but you never came
I waited and waited, but things are still the same
I waited and waited, but you never change
I waited and waited, but things are still the same

Outro:
And I'm still walking on this road to nowhere
And I will wait...
Forever and ever...
Track Name: Her Song
Verse 1:
Listening to your voice
Havn't heard in a while
So when I'm gone
I miss you I miss you!
When I see you smile
It puts me back in place
Just like those days
We can't replace

Chorus:
We were under the limelight
Of the spotlight of the world
You were my sunshine
On the dark days of my life
You were the light at the end of the tunnel
The tunnel
You were my only hope to survive

Verse 2:
I like the way you make me feel when we're together
So when I'm gone
I miss you! I miss you!
For the longest time you've been on my mind
And I'm so glad
I found you! I found you!

Chorus:
We were under the limelight
Of the spotlight of the world
You were my sunshine
On the dark days of my life
You were the light at the end of the tunnel
The tunnel
You were my only hope to survive

We were under the limelight
Of the spotlight of the world
You were my sunshine
On the dark days of my life
You were the light at the end of the tunnel
The tunnel
You were my only hope to survive

To survive
To survive
To survive
Track Name: Future @ Risk
Verse 1:
Darkness filled the city
The clouds covered the day
The rain provided delay
God was being witty

Chorus:
Darkness filled the sky
There was danger in our eye
Our future's at risk
The lights began to fade
And now there's only shade
Our future's at risk
Our future's at risk
Our future's at risk

Verse 2:
We should of handled this with care
Now all we can do is stare
There's blood on the ground
And it's all around

Chorus:
Darkness filled the sky
There was danger in our eye
Our future's at risk
The lights began to fade
And now there's only shade
Our future's at risk
Our future's at risk
Our future's at risk
