Track Name: Go
Wake up let's grab the car
I know that we can make it far
We'll drive out until we see new stars
we could

Talk as we drive for days
The music won't stop, it always plays
The soundtrack of our life has just begun

See state signs will pass away and
Highways they are always changing
From town to town we say goodbye
We will say goodbye

Tall mountains capped with snow and
Clear rivers that flow and flow
The sun beats down and we all feel alive

A mist that envelopes towers
A rain that falls for hours and hours
But we can stay inside and dance 'till day

Lakes, rivers, bays and oceans
Time flies by, there's no slow motion
If we stay out here will this be home
If we stay out here will this be home
Will this be
Home

Cars, trucks, vans, bridges, highways
Boats and planes, they all deserve praise
But it's life that takes us where we will go
But it's life that takes us where we will go
Where we will
Go
Track Name: Begin The Day
Begin the day as if the night had not occurred
Forget the way your heart pounded, oh how it stirred

Take the train cause that's the only way you know
Just walk away cause you're so scared of what you had

Lose your heart
Lose your heart
But keep your mind today

Lose your heart
Lose your heart
But keep your mind today

You won't turn back 'cause the fear just drives you on
You'll chose a lane the one that assures you of the less pain

Lose your heart
But keep your mind today
You'll lock your heart away
Lock your heart away

You reach your home glad to see it's all the same
But it feels all wrong you realize you're the one that's changed.
Track Name: Dreams
Sit in the grass and wait for me
Searching for roses up in the trees
I'll draw you this world so the two of us can dream

I wonder if I should get away
I wonder if I should stay

Clouds on the sea surround our boat
We share a lamp that lights our way
Gaze at the stars that are calling us to dream

I wonder if I should get away
I wonder if I should stay

Snow falls lightly upon our head
We'll make a fire just for the two of us and dream
Yes we will dream

I wonder if I should get away
I wonder if I should stay
Track Name: The River
Water rushes
The current is pulling us away
Away

I know that we are falling
I know that we are fallen
I know that we are falling
I know that we are falling

Down the river
All my words they all just wither
I feel my heart it sinks besides her
We're going down down down down down

Breathe while we have a chance
And I see the end of it
It's near I fear
I know that we are falling

Down the river
All my words the all just wither
I feel my heart it sinks besides her
We're going down down down down down
We're going down down down down down

I know that we are falling
I know that we are fallen
I know that we are falling
I know that we are falling

Down the river
All my words they all just wither
I feel my heart it sinks besides her
We're going down down down down down
Track Name: Alone
Walking up the dark stairs to our room
Walking up the dark stairs to our room
Touch the door and crumble in front of it
Touch the door and crumble in front of it
'Cause I heard you
I heard you
That you were not alone
You were not alone

I spent years of speaking but you don't hear
I spent years of speaking but you don't hear
I do not know where I'll be running to
I do not know who I'll be running to
But it's not you
It's not you
Now I'm really alone

I don't know why but I'd do it again
Now I'm really alone
I don't know why but I'd do it again
I'm really alone
I don't know why but I'd do it again
I'm really alone
I don't know why but I'd do it again

Your silence
It's killin' me
Your silence
It's killin' me
It's killin' me
It's killin' me

Your silence
It's killin' me
Your silence
It's killin' me
It's killin' me
It's killin' me

And you think I'm alone

You think I'm alone

I think I'm alone
I don't know why but I'd do it again
I think I'm alone
I don't know why but I'd do it again
I'm really alone
I don't know why but I'd do it again
I'm really alone
I don't know why but I'd do it again
I don't know why but I'd do it again
Track Name: Broken Youth
No regrets how about now
No regrets how about now
How about now

Running through the field in the night
Running scared running naked with no light
By the banks we were young
Fighting hard fighting fast but we were not strong

No regrets how about now
No regrets how about now
How about now

You could hear our lives with each breath
Our hearts were fractured this is whats left
A broken half with no other whole
A searching man with a bitter soul

And I don't want to be here no more
And I don't want to be this no more

Never look back
Never look back
Never look back why can't I go
Why can't I go

Oh I wondered what I could see
And I wondered what I could be

Broken Youth

No regrets how about now
You said you loved me how about now

No regrets how about now
No regrets how about now
