Track Name: Fade Away
Fade Away

Sometimes I feel like I should fade away
Make sure I’m never followed
Blow out the candles and just pull the shades
On a life less spent than borrowed

Just turn around
Not make a sound
And just fade away
Fade away

Sometimes I love and I just pull away
Guess I’m afraid of bein burnt
Sometimes I handle almost anything
Sometimes I crumble at a word

Just turn around
Not make a sound
And just fade away
Fade away

Sometimes I wish that I would walk away
Make sure I’m never followed
Blow out the candles and just pull the shades
On a life less spent than borrowed

Just turn around
Not make a sound
90 degrees
And I will be free to just…

Fade away
Fade away
Fade away
Fade away
Track Name: Open Road
Open Road

Snow falls heavy on the hills
Making our way back and the morning's still
Wondering if we'll ever be free
Trying to remember the dream

Which way to the open road?
Which way the forsaken go?

Wondering what it is you had to say
Couldn't explain the rains fell on that day
You're wearing that dress again
Comes off in the end

Which way to the open road?
Which way to the great unknown?

Which way to the open road?

Take on your world, honey don't back down
Take all you've known, we'll turn it upside down
Take all your fears put them far behind
The road ahead will pass in time

It's all in your head
Everything that had to be said
Never looking back again
Oh, breathe deep and we're far away

Wondering if it's all a dream
Looking at the places we've been
It's all in your head
But it's full of regret

Which way to the open road?
Track Name: Stars Appear
Stars Appear

Waiting, on borrowed time
Strung up, out on the line
If you could take one minute from the past
Make the right decision from the start

Long slow fall into a veil of tears
Looking up you see the stars appear

Counting, up the cost
Break even or you’re lost
You can never pay for what you've done
All your debts are rolling into one

Wading down into a veil of tears
Looking up you see the stars appear

Wading down into a veil of tears
Looking up you see the stars appear
Track Name: Learning
Learning How to Take it Slow

Waking up
Another day will soon be racing
Nothin
Seems like nothing’s everlasting
Passing time
I've been trying not to waste it on getting you high
Changing
Seems like everything is changing and it's passing us by

Chorus
Learning how to take it slow
Got a long way to go
Learning how to take it slow

Patience
I gotta learn to have more patience
Something
Something’s gotta give and i know that the time will come
Working
It's like we're working hard only to be getting put down
Sleeping
Seems like the whole wide world is sleeping
and we're out on the town

Chorus

Facing up
Feels like forever we've been facing up to everything
Fighting
I'm so tired and done, but it's time to get back in the ring
You and I
We've been through it all, but now we've gotta start it for real
Living
Time keeps hitting hard, but we just got to live what we feel

Chorus
Track Name: Bury My Bones
Bury My Bones

Bury my bones In the cold ground
Bury my bones In the damp earth
Bury my bones Deep
Bury my bones Where the angels weep

As the blood fell,
And breathe froze,
I dreamt you close

Bury my bones Where my heart lies
Bury my bones Where my love cries
Bury my bones In the dark soil
Bury my bones Let my Gods toil
And let me go, let me go

Bury my bones Near the deep swell
Bury my bones Where the good fell
Bury my bones In the dark grass
Bury my bones Let my soul pass
And let me go, let me go

And when we die, and tears fall,
What will be then?
And when we rise, and fears gone,
There'll be an end
Track Name: Homesong
Homesong

Situations let me know that all things gotta change
Time lets me know that all things go
Never understood the way some people see another side
Faith is hard to hold onto

But it's all right, here now
It's alright here now

Sky is getting darker as the day begins to fade
Sun shines on your face just one last time
The night ahead will be the hardest
We've ever known

But it's all the same in the end
We're all the same in the end

The hardest thing i ever had to do was say goodbye
This home seems colder now you're gone
But the place i know, the place i love,
The place i wanna be, is right here

And it's alright, time's gonna fly
And it's alright, we've all got to cry
And it's alright, your light still shines for me now
Track Name: Beaming Out
Beamin Out

Beamin out of your radio
Something’s growing but you’ll never know
Cos it sounds so pretty and it sounds so sweet
But its cold and dark and so obscene

I’ve been troubled Big boys playin with their guns
I’ve been troubled Countries going one by one
I’ve been troubled Media knows what to say
I’ve been troubled You can’t feel it slip away

Night and day i keep hearin
Words from the godfearin
Stay at home and lock the doors
And all your fears will be catered for

I’ve been troubled Big boys playin with their guns
I’ve been troubled Countries goin one by one
I’ve been troubled Media knows what to say
I’ve been troubled You cant feel it slip away

First you had the red demon
Then corporations got to thinkin
Now there's terror and we're buildin walls
While markets rise and markets fall

I’ve been troubled Big boys playin with their guns
I’ve been troubled Countries goin one by one
I’ve been troubled Media knows what to say
I’ve been troubled You can’t feel it slip away

I’ve been troubled Big boys playin with their guns
I’ve been troubled Countries joinin one by one
I’ve been troubled Media's told what to say
I’ve been troubled You can’t feel it slip away
Track Name: Sweet Sarah Belle
Sweet Sarah Belle

You're mine and i've lost myself
In a new kind of beauty and wealth
The day that you came
The world seemed the same
But everything in me changed

You're mine and i hope you know
I'll never let you go
Your smile lights my day
In a delicate way
And i hope it will always stay

Your eyes they burn bright and new
A pureness inside shines through
As you make your way
In this world today
Let goodness remain in you.

You're mine and it seems absurd
But you cling to my every word
I know this wont last long
Some day you'll sing your own song
I hope every word is heard

Time is no friend of mine
It empties like this bottle of wine
Days go quickly by
In the blink of an eye
And soon from the nest you'll fly

I'm yours and you should know
No matter how far you roam
Sweet Sarah Belle
Let your dreams guide you well
And know that i love you so
Track Name: Approaching Rain
Approaching Rain

Waiting on a sign that leads to somewhere
I can recognise,
Took the wrong turn somewhere
Now I'm driving out of time

You could jump out any time you like
But you’re still here, by my side

Rain falls on horizons, drawing patterns
In the sky
Clouds formed on the ocean, casting shadows
On our eyes

You could jump out any time you like
You’re still here by my side
Track Name: That Voice
That Voice

Well, I remember seeing you
Standing calm beneath the light
As it bathed you in blue
And you sang into the night

And your sound it echoed out
And it filled the room
Raised my spirits high
Raised me from the gloom

Sing me a lullaby
A song to end the day
Sing me a lullaby
And send me on my way
With that voice

Well i feel like I’ve been searching
For that feeling once again
But times fading now
And the search it has no end

Chorus

Echoes in my heart
Can tear my soul apart
Lingers on and on
In the beauty of your song
Track Name: All The Love
All The Love

All the lies that you retell will
One day come around
And the love that you hold back will
One day come around

Chorus
All the love that you resell, well it
Brings back my memories
Of a time that you meant well, and meant
Something to me

You don't know but it's said that
You will never change
You'll find words they mean nothing
You'll just stay the same

Chorus
Chorus
Track Name: Time
Time

All you see and, all you hear is time
Time’s wasting away
All your life you, you’ve been standing in line
Time wasting away
Time wasting away

Left school early, you were waiting to shine
Time wasting away
Got a job then pushing nickels and dimes
Time wasting away
Time wasting away

You’re frustrated, I can see it in your eyes,
And time’s wasting away
You’re just watching, your life passing you by
Time wasting away
Time wasting away
Time wasting away

Time, time wasting away
Time wasting away
Time wasting away
