Track Name: I Know
Gotta gotta be free – Taking time from my misery
I know I know I know you know
Living life aint easy – Backing tracking everything I believe
I know I know I know you know

I said love I said love wont you please come and pick me up
I said love I said love wont you tell me that I’ve had enough

Faking smiles for free – Make believe that my life is me
I know I know I know you know
Running round is easy – If you feel you have nowhere to be
I know I know I know you know

I said love I said love wont you please come and pick me up
I said love I said love wont you tell me that I’ve had enough

Ohhh I’m going scared and take no more
Ohhh I feel like I’m there I can’t breath for sure
Life has wondered me here I can’t find the door
Ohhh I’m going scared and take no more
Track Name: Hourglass
They say, life is just too short - I never believed them but now I understand
Last year, feels like just one week – I closed my eyes open up now here I am

Days go by – Time oh how it flies and the memories keep flashing through my mind
All the tears we cry – though all the bumpy tides
I promise love one day I’ll fly
Before the hourglass runs dry

They say live for just one dream – but I got 3,4,5 6 hell I don’t know
I guess we only get one chance – we only have one life so hold on tight lets go

To me there is only one of you but there’s a thousand other boys like me
And we’re still young our times not done I promise you will be happy
As long as you are by side

Days go by – Time oh how it flies and the memories keep flashing through my mind
All the tears we cry – though all the bumpy tides
I promise love one day I’ll fly
Before the hourglass runs dry Love I promise I will be right by your side
Track Name: Like Always
Like a lovely little game___ You playing me just the same___
Oh like always_____ I wonder could it change
Like a spooky little dream___ I’m speculating what it means____
Oh like always____ It always means the same

And love I can only imagine your voice shouting down to me oh boy you better make a choice
Dreams they are only what you make of them so why don’t you stop your lies there no need to pretend
That you alive______

Like a mind that can not think____ My life can’t ever seem to be in sync___
Oh like always____ I’m too afraid to blink
Waiting patiently to shake_____ Wondering how much more I can take___
Oh like always___ my body seems to ache

And love I can only imagine your voice shouting down to me oh boy you better make a choice
Dreams they are only what you make of them so why don’t you stop your lies there no need to pretend that you alive

I say won’t you please just let me go___ Then I will start grow

Like a man ridden with shame____ I fear I’ll never be the same___
Oh like always____ I’ll always be the insane
Track Name: Rain
Take a walk take hike take a deep breath and sigh lets think it over
Wanna scream wanna shout want to yell you start to pout I loose composure
Now time flows out the window as the light bulbs starts to flicker
Do I stay should I leave not sure it changes anything now
Life can be cold matter-of-factly
Plans don’t work out smooth or exactly

We analyze cant compromise feeling like ours minds have been ran over
Let’s modify and organize sort through our thoughts and just be closer
Now time flows out the window as the light bulbs starts to flicker
We could be stop to see everything that we need can be right here
Life can be cold matter-of-factly
Plans don’t work out smooth or exactly

Rain on me I’ll give you the strength you seek promise the love I need and I’ll give you more
So rain on me wash away of everything fix all the wounds that sting there’s so much more for us
Track Name: The Life (Fall On Me) -Acoustic-
I can’t buy you the life
That you think you need that you think you need
But I can promise you my life.
You can have all of me I’ll give you everything

I said the money don’t matter if we aint got love
Time don’t mean much if when it’s all used up
So baby say to me
A thousand miles traveled how about a few more
Hop in the car away we roll where we need so please
Fall on Me

Come and lay with all night
And disappear from all we fear
I promise I will treat you right
Just hold on tight lets live the life

I said the money don’t matter if we aint got the love
time don’t mean much if when its all used up
So baby say to me
A thousand miles traveled how about a few more
Hop in the car away we roll where we need so please
Fall on Me

I say we do baby I got you and you got me to so come baby please.
Track Name: Waste
I can’t take no more
Our delusions come unfold when we’re waiting like we do
Stop and think tonight
I’m holding time to tight when I’m waiting like I always do for you

Love I will waste my life with you
Love I will waste my time for you
Love I will waste my life with you
Cause you know that I do

Common ground tonight
Seem so out of site when I’m waiting just for you
So close my open eyes
Take breath outside when I’m waiting like I always do for you

Love I will waste my life with you
Love I will waste my time for you
Love I will waste my life with you
Cause you know that I do

Wasting time’s alright by your side by mine
I’m feeling just fine wasting time with you

Love I will waste my life with you
Love I will waste my time for you
Love I will waste my life with you
Cause you know that I do
Track Name: Which Way I'll Go
The duration light is buzzing
And somebody is calling me home
Fixated on the bottom
Confused about the outcome don’t know which way I’ll go
But I got to fight be tough

Standing in the open
But feeling like I’ll never be known
The reflection from the surface
Fails to show a purpose - Don’t know which way I’ll go
But I got to fight be tough

Don’t you ever feel like I do
Can’t stand to be alone just like you

Alone and I can’t find you
Feeling like my minds came unglued
Situation defines us
But at time it might blinds us - Don’t know which way to go
Track Name: Where We Are
I got it all though it seem between life and all my dreams
Standing tall but I fall and I’m caught just right between
Where we are – do we wander through this life
All alone – or will you stay right by my side

Take a photo take a snap shot of our lives
Crop it down edit all that you don’t like
Where we are like where you want to be in life
Wanna go I will you stay right by your side

You got everything I need - Could we finally start to see
We got all the love we need - But the mind plays tricks it seems

We got to try to fail to know we gave it everything
Stuck inside four walls complain about what we need
Here we are do we stand up do we fight
Like a star do we shine on thought the night

You got everything I need - Could we finally start to see
We got all the love we need - But the mind plays tricks it seems
Bridge
That all we got to do – Is just believe in us

You got everything I need - Could we finally start to see
We got all the love we need - But the mind plays tricks it seems
Track Name: Wake Up Love
Wake up love it’s time to let it go
Feeling like the mind has lost control
We are young and we’re afraid
We have falling from our grace

Wake up love listen to your soul
Hear the words they’re quite but they’re bold
Absorb it all

Life just goes and I guess you just got to say
Why do we bleed and how do we wash away
Why do I need why cant I seem to say
I guess things are fine but nothing is every okay

Wake up love so you can hear me say
I’m trying hard to find those better days
We can go we can be
We can fight why we can’t believe

Put it down so you can let it go
Free your mind from all that we’ve been told
Forget it all

Life just goes and I guess you just got to say
Why do we bleed and how do we wash away
Why do I need why cant I seem to say
I guess things are fine but nothing is every okay
I wish I could scream I wish I could finally figure out what its about
I want to believe I want to never have a doubt what its about

Wake up love
Track Name: Beautiful Day
Hide between the lights that you shine
Within your glow no one can find
The day seem so far and behind
You wonder where has gone the time
I promise you I will see it through


Love such a beautiful day
Lets forget all the things they say
Love even if it starts to rain
Follow me through the storm we brave together

With all of the choices we make
It still seem like we make the same mistakes
But learn as we live like we should
Life we show you its good
I promise you I will see it through


Love such a beautiful day
Lets forget all the things they say
Love even if it starts to rain
Follow me through the storm we brave together

If your lost and can’t be found and need someone around call me love you know that I’m down
I don’t fly but I can drive so if you need a place to hide call me love I’ll be right by your side
Track Name: Blind My Life
Stop and go everywhere - tell me that I never cared to be
I Blind my life from all I see – blame it on the failed attempts by me
Oh I still believe – But leaves fall from my tree
Do you agree – We all can’t see

I Wanna be everything – but maybe life gots other plans for me
Screaming loud inside my head - making sure all my thoughts get said
Oh I still believe – But leaves fall from my tree
Do you agree – We all can’t see

What you wanna do___ Do you think that I am real or should you just pass through
What you wanna be___ Is there a chance you can finally set me free
Track Name: Around We Go
Life we know – It is such a miracle
But it feels like a merry go round and round we go
Love I know – I could be your stereo
Singing every song you know around and around we go

Don’t know if I could be
Everything that you might need - But around we go

So love you know – I know that you’re beautiful
Feeling like I lose control around and around we go
So come unfold – Pull the ribbon from the bow
And findout what I’m wishing for around and round go

Don’t know if I could be
Everything that you might need - But around we go

Love I’m tell you all that I could just need - is your heart
So I’m falling down to my knees just beggin you please - can we start
I know that we can be so let just go around we go

Don’t know if I could be
Everything that you might need - But around we go

So love lets hold - On to all the things we know
Life can be so beautiful around and around we go
Track Name: Within My Thoughts
Fall on me so I can feel love I’m always in misery
Verse 1
Fall, on me together we fall but maybe one day succeed
So spread, your wings catch me before I'm falling into my sleep
Chorus
Now I don't know if you could save a life for my good.
Open up my secrets to find out what's my weakness
They lie beneath the corners of the cracks where I could hoarder
All my thoughts, well that's what I've been taught to do
Well that's what I've been taught to do

So lie to me so I can feel love I'm always in misery
And say those things even if I am wrong please make my mind believe

Now I don't know if I could, hide my pride like should
Just shout into the darkness, until I’m feeling harmless
I'll never understand this life until feel the pain I fight
Deep inside well that's what I've been taught to do

Well I guess I’m getting old and life is feeling so short
And I feel invisible like I could never be sure so say that you see me

So stand by me together we're tall, apart I would cease to be
And lay your hand hold it against my chest I know you could help this mess
