Track Name: Bring You Back
Do you feel that all the best days are gone? If we went back would you play along?
Or will you wait for something new?
One small thing and the day's not the same.
If I lose interest, then I am to blame
I'll never change the way I feel

When it seems that no one else is around, I will bring you back. I'll take you home

You'll never suffer if i compromise
Find relief if we both decide that hopefulness is all we need

When it seems that no one else is around, I will bring you back. I'll take you home
Track Name: Parade
If I have something unique to say, then I'll find a way
to raise my voice and make myself heard
but when all the words get lost, I'll write you a song

Feel I have all these dreams to discover
It's a weakness that brings me to you

Why don't they give me some space to breathe, to find my own thing
despite the noise of this endless parade
But whether they're here, or not, just write me a song

Feel I have all these dreams to discover
It's a weakness that brings me to you
Track Name: Ghost
See how all the smoke rolls out through the window
She sits on her own, one tiny spark lit up in the dark

But what would you do, if you couldn't run?
If everyone knew about all the things that you'd done
The things that you done

They say that she looks old. They even say she drifts like a ghost
Nobody near, nobody here

But what would you do, if you couldn't run?
If everyone knew about all the things that you'd done
The things that you done
Track Name: A Hundred Words
This is how I feel. I didn't mean to disappoint you. I tried so hard today
The lights are shining through the trees as darkness falls
I miss you more every day

If I felt much better then I would find a hundred words
Instead I feel there's nothing I can do but repeat them back to you

All it takes now you're gone is one small thing, I'm back to where I started from
There's nothing more that I can say, but this is true. It's hard for you.

Would it make a difference if I had a plan and held it up and reached for it ahead?
It might feel exciting but it's temporary brightness until the night returns

If I felt much better then I would find a hundred words
Instead I feel there's nothing I can do but repeat them back to you

All it takes now you're gone is one small thing, I'm back to where I started from
There's nothing more that I can say, but this is true. It's hard for you.
Track Name: All That I Want
All that i want is in this room.
All my thoughts lead back to you.
There is no limit to the things that you do.

When the walls fell apart I couldn't breathe
There was nothing left for me.
Just the frustrations of the daily routine

If I tell you the way I feel it gets better
But I'm still thinking of all the days I can't get back

Moonlight upon the empty square
I could spend the whole night there
Feeling so many things, different and new

If I tell you the way I feel it gets better
But I'm still thinking of all the days I can't get back
Track Name: Can't Find A Way
Further away from all the things i used to know
Turning around to face the way I hope to go
If I find a way to leave this behind
then I'll go tonight

Could I escape there without someone like you, guiding me through and taking me there?

Plans that I make, things that I'll save until something has changed

Things I said yesterday made no sense today
Words spinning round and round again inside my head
is there something that you've always wanted to say but can't find a way?

And if you've felt that something was missing before, that you wanted more, then I'd understand

Plans that I make, things that I'll save until something has changed
