Track Name: Breakthrough
You close your eyes for one moment, begging for a change
You open them again, and everything's the same
As the tears start to blur everything in sight
Your eyes grow heavier. Can you make it through the night

Can't somebody break my fall
Will somebody listen to my call
Or is there no one left here at all
Maybe it's my fault after all

I was the one who fought for you, begging you to stay
You were the one who fought with me, pushing me away
You were the one who kept everything inside
Now I am the one who's leaving you behind

Can't somebody break my fall
Will somebody listen to my call
Or is there no one left here at all
Maybe it's my fault after all

If only I had white crescent wings
and a golden ring on my head
I'd soar through the atmosphere instead

But if you want to stay alive
But if you want to make things right

Run for your life, 'cause everything's on the line
Run for your life, you're running out of time
Run for your life, 'cause everything's on the line
Run for your life, you're running out of time
Track Name: The World: U C
One thing after another you destroy me
Take a soul, corrupt it to the core
You will never go away as long as I'm alive
I will be forced to sit under your watchful eye

And I'll never fly
I'll never fly

You take the best of me and drop the bar
A happier place, observed from afar
Sitting alone, too weak to try
While the world soars by

I'll never fly
I'll never fly
I'll never fly
I'll never fly

I can complete this journey, but the leash is short
I can feel the beating, but I can't see the heart
I can touch the door, but it overlooks me
No stars in the sky

And I'll never fly
I'll never fly
I'll never fly
I'll never fly

Take the best of me and carve your name
Leaving nothing but anger, hunger and blame
Too afraid to say goodbye
The world will dry its eyes

And I'll never fly
I'll never fly
I'll never fly
I'll never fly
Track Name: I Can't Handle Myself
I can't handle myself
I can't handle myself
The things I make me do
The things that I do for you

I can't handle myself
I can't handle me
Whenever I get to thinking
Thinking gets to me

I can't work with this
The pain that I dismiss
I can't handle myself
The voice of dismay

I can't stifle myself
I can't rise above myself
The things that I see
Will never convince me

I can't lie to myself
I can't cry to myself
I sigh to myself
Don't walk away

I can't just fake
The jumps I'll never take
I can't handle myself
But neither could you
Track Name: If You Don't Know
Take it from me babe
I'll tell you the truth
I'm done trying to get
Back to you

A long time ago all I wanted was something
Something that wasn't there
It would eat at me each and every day
I would sit on the floor and stare
How could I make it work
How could I show my hurt
How could I get back to you

This really is not good for me I know this to be true
So I make myself forget all about the sad tune
'Cause I know what I want I'm just waiting on you
Until that day comes I'm gonna do what I gotta do

If you don't know then I don't care
We're on a road that's going nowhere
Say what's up or say fairwell
Make up your mind or you can go to hell

Now it's time I talk to you
And find out how you feel about me
You tell me you don't know, ask me why I care
But I just want to make you see
The way we act, the way we talk,
Even the way we know it's wrong
All I want is to make you see
The message in this song

If you don't know then I don't care
We're on a road that's going nowhere
Say what's up or say fairwell
Make up your mind or you can go to hell

If you don't know then I'm not there
Leaving me in the dark just isn't fair
If you wanna say something let me know
If you gotta think then I gotta go

If you don't know then I don't care
We're on a road that's going nowhere
Say what's up or say fairwell
Make up your mind or you can go to hell

Make up your mind or you can go to hell.
Track Name: Give It To Me
Everybody's running
Jumping like it's nothing
Knows exactly where they are

While I'm just sitting
Very very dizzy
And I'm missing
Never wandering far

Don't know where to go
Don't know what to do
I just can't find my way

This road's way too dark
Not a street sign in sight
So I'll just sit and stay

Give me a map I don't know where to go from here
Give me a map I'm lost on this dark, winding road
Give me a map I don't know where to go from here
Give me a map so I can find my way

Seems like every time I come up with a plan
Everything falls through

Everything keeps changing, don't know if I'm ready
It's happening way too soon

Don't try to keep in shape
Don't try to keep up
Don't wanna waste my time

I'll just sit and play guitar hoping something will come
Something that's sublime

Give me a map I don't know where to go from here
Give me a map I'm lost on this dark, winding road
Give me a map I don't know where to go from here
Give me a map so I can find my way
Track Name: I Need You
I need someone to look in my eyes
And tell me, nothing is fair
I need someone to stare up at mars
And ask, why should we care

I need someone to turn off the lights
Remind me nothing is clear
A life is a life is a life
And there is no reason for us to be here

I need a friend who can help me forget
All the places I've never been
I need a guide who knows
There's nowhere to hide and no way to win

I need you
To see the truth
You need to know
There is no truth

I need someone to close my eyes
And show me what is real
I need someone to turn off the lights
Remind me there's nothing to fear

And I need to take a long, long walk
Off a short, short pier
I'll take my time and won't open my eyes til you're here

Do you accept the pain
Of a fool who can't find a name
In these creatures of love who are all the same

Or will you follow your heart
In a battle you never thought would be fought
On your own you can make the change

We're not all the same
Track Name: Secondary
As slow as time seems to go
A beat is always too quick for the tune
And time can be a tricky thing
When you don't want to miss a thing
And nothing's got enough time for you

And when we need to let go
And watch the distance grow
In my eyes it's always too soon

When I watch the night fall
There are always too many stars
Between the sun and the moon

And every week makes me weaker
When every hour isn't ours

So now we might as well forget
All the things that we regret
And we may have some hope yet
We must stay strong

And when the world comes crashing
Down into a forgotten valley
Our world will stand resolute

And when the sky is falling
We need not ever worry
We'll be amongst the stars soon

And all the lonely days are over
And we've created our own world

So now we've gone and we've lost
All the things we used to trust
And now we walk away untouched
And we are free

So now we might as well forget
All the things that we regret
And all the people that we've met
WIll hold us back

And every minute is too minute
Each moment too momentary
Every second is secondary
To just one second with you
Track Name: Smile
When you smile I feel no pain
When you laugh I can't turn away
In my life there's not a day
That I wouldn't love to see your face

So smile for me babe
Make the darkness go away
'Cause I've never felt as brave
As when you're smiling for me babe

If my sunny sky turned grey
And I just couldn't get away
I would just look at your face
Embrace the cool, cool rain

So smile for me girl
Shine a light into my world
All my sadness is a blur
When you're smiling for me girl

So smile for my babe
Don't you ever be afraid
I will never go away
As long as you're smiling for me babe
Track Name: Headlit
Can you sense a little danger
In the peaceful air tonight
Have you ever seen a star
Shine a little too bright

Would you like to close your eyes
And I could be your guiding light
Because the world is on your side tonight

Have you ever won a battle
That you never hoped to fight
Do you run away from darkness
Into the comfort of a headlight

Do you feel that you are mighty
When your shadow engulfs the night
And the stars inside your eyes ignite

If you don't know what it's like to know you
I think I can show you
That you've got so much
And you don't need someone
To make you feel loved

And under the skin
That we were forced to live in
There's a light that will never dim

So don't waste your time
Rehearsing lines

You don't know what it's like to know you
You don't know what it's like to know you
You don't know what it's like to know you
But I hardly think I know you at all

Can you sense a little anger
In the blissful air tonight
I can see it in your eyes
That it's coming though in mine

Has it ever felt so clear
That this love would soon subside
And that everything must end in time

If you don't know what it's like to love you
I think I can show you
That you've got so much
And you don't have to run
From the ones that you love

And under the skin
That we were forced to live in
There's a light that will never dim

So don't waste your time
Wasting mine

You don't know what it's like to love you
You don't know what it's like to love you
You don't know what it's like to love you
But I hardly think I love you at all
Track Name: Falling
Eyes open wide, I watch a storm approach
Falling hard
But you won't see it
Not til’ it’s come and gone
“Look up!” I yell
Falling hard
On deaf ears
And then you’re gone

I can show you a clearer sky
And I won't rain on your parade
I want to be the full moon reflecting off your eyes
And I won't leave you in the rain

Thighs open wide you lie to yourself
Falling hard
But you won't hear it
Not till he’s come and gone
“I’m happy!” you cry
Falling hard
Falling hard
Falling hard

I can show you a better time
And I won't hurt you, I won't hurt you
I'll be there when you’re left behind
And I'll never go away

I can show you a clearer sky
And I won't rain on your parade
I want to be the full moon reflecting off your eyes
And I won't leave you in the rain

Eyes open wide the truth is told
Falling hard
But you won't hear it
Won't want to believe it
“Everyone falls,” I'll whisper
Falls hard
Falls hard
But you don't have to
'Cause I will catch you
And you’ll never have to fall again
Track Name: Stick Around
If anyone could let me know how
I've been sticking round
How I’ve been keeping up, now
I've been staying sane

If anything could just feel right now
If I could see the light now
I would make it right now
I would find a way

And if you could walk a mile
In my blues
You'd lose me too
And if I could make you smile
I might choose
To stick to you

If anyone could let me show how
I've been pushed around
How I’ve been getting beat down
Cursed by my own fate

Not one more day, now
I gotta get away now
Find me my own place
My way-too-late escape

And if I could run for miles
Into the blue
Far from you
And if I could break the tiles
Blow the roof
Fall right through

If anyone could let me go

You’ll never let me go
You’ll never let me go
I tried to take it slow
But now its time to fly
And say my first goodbye
As hard as you may try
I can't just sit and sing
I know how it might sting
The loving that you bring
Piles on top of me
Piles on top of me

Its time to let me go
Its time to let me go
I tried to take it slow
But now its time to fly
And say my first goodbye
As hard as you may try
I can't just sit and sing------- (If you’re not gonna kill me)
I know how it might sting---- (At least give me the strength)
The loving that you bring---- (Im running for my life)
Piles on top of me------------ (There’s no more time to waste)
Piles on top of me------------ (I wont let myself fall again)
Piles on top of me------------ (I will rise above)
And now that I'm set free---- (Each week makes me weaker)
Its time to let me be---------- (All that is left is love)
All I need is a hero------------ (And I don’t need a map)
And that hero is me---------- (No roads can take me there)
I see across the ocean------- (I’ll dive into the ocean)
Far from all the pain--------- (Into a world of change)
I’ll outrun the sun------------ (I will outrun the sun)
And I'll follow the rain------- (And I will follow the rain)
Track Name: Luau
Lei around your neck
Flower in your hair
Can you feel the vibes throughout the air

You've been sailing from far away
Searching your whole life
Welcome to your island paradise

So hula
Come dance with me and
Hula
Flow with the sea and
Hula
Let your soul be free

Come now
Come and enjoy the
Luau
Come take my hand you'll
Learn how
We all live in harmony

We'll watch the sunrise
High above the tide
Keep your head held high and you'll be fine

And when the sunsets
Gather round the flame
Light your torch and
Give yourself a name

So hula
Come dance with me and
Hula
Flow with the sea and
Hula
Let your soul be free

Come now
Come and enjoy the
Luau
Come take my hand you'll
Learn how
We all live in harmony
