Track Name: I'm Fine
The world is changing, so am I.
It makes me feel like I could cry - I’m fine.
I was awake, but with closed eyes.
I opened them what a surprise - I’m fine.

That’s not all. I’m not through.
I’ve got more to say to you.
I understand, and I’m not scared,
If anything just more prepared.

Desperate times make desperate people.
I’m just trying, I’m not evil- I’m fine.
It’s hard to breath and sleep at night.
I toss and turn without the lights - I’m fine

That’s not all. I’m not through.
I’ve got more to say to you.
I understand, and I’m not scared,
If anything just more prepared.

I’ve been running for so long,
But still I can’t keep up with you - I’ve tried.
I’ll take ahold of this new road,
Until there is nowhere to go - alright?

That’s not all. I’m not through.
I’ve got more to say to you.
I understand, and I’m not scared,
If anything just more prepared.
Track Name: People, Living
Lying in the wake of an explosion that shook the world,
I couldn’t look away.
I wondered if the stars might see me, but the sky it couldn’t read me.
It told me just to play.

We went to lie down on the sidewalk,
Right by the street.
To lay our heads where we could hear the people walking,
And hope to fall asleep.

Living on my own was not a problem ‘til you arrived
And showed me how to dream.
I love the way you feel beside me. I love the way your eyes
Invite me just to stay.

Refrain:
Then the whole village
Joined themselves among the fallen shelves
To talk for hours about triumph and struggles,
And never to say a word - no never to say a word!

Away, out of the ashes, I watched you go,
I heard your steps.
I saw the road you take but quickly turned away.
I couldn’t go.

I’ve changed. I find myself a faint reminder
Of what I used to be,
But still I need you right beside me, to guide me, to love me
Or so it seems to be.

We spend our time living out stories
We write for ourselves.
We laugh so hard, but it’s not funny, or is it funny?
I’d rather not say.

Refrain

Turn around, see, this world is beautiful.
Now, I’ve found, we’re just people.
Take my hand, let’s be people
Living…

Refrain

We’ll never say a word. Our vision was so blurred. We’ll never say a word.
Track Name: Can't You See
Colors dancing ‘round me in my head.
Sitting on the sofa looking dead.
Don’t mind me, I’m in my paradise.
Can’t you see that we’re as good as dead?

Used to watch the cloud float through the sky.
Now I sit outside and wonder, “Why?”
No one else around me seems to care.
Can’t you see that something isn’t right?

Refrain:
Open up your eyes.
They’re beautiful like mine.

Standing in the kitchen, feeling mean.
The food around me isn’t fit to eat.
Walk back out and sit down in my chair.
Can it be there’s nothing here for me?

But the colors dancing ‘round me in my head.
Entertain me if I’m looking dead.
Don’t mind me, I’m in my paradise.
I’ll sit right here, enjoy the ride instead.

Refrain

Walk outside and put my rain boots on.
So beautiful that nothing can be wrong.
The birds outside wake up, sing to me.
Can it be, I somehow know their song?

So, take my hand and come into my head,
Or I can change your mind for your instead.
Come with me, into my paradise.
Can’t you see that we’re as good as dead?

Refrain
Track Name: Left Behind
Left behind.
I feel like I’m left behind for the last time.
It crossed my mind. You crossed some line.
I’m left behind for the last time.

What’s this all about anyway?
Don’t really know. Can’t really say.
Who can say?

Left behind.
I feel like I’m left behind for the last time.
It crossed my mind. You crossed some line.
I’m left behind for the last time.

Why should we both waste another day?
Should I go or should I stay?
Come away…

Left behind.
I feel like I’m left behind for the last time.
It crossed my mind. You crossed some line.
I’m left behind for the last time.

Ooo, ooo… Ooo, ooo…
Ooo

Left behind.
I feel like I’m left behind for the last time.
It crossed my mind. You crossed some line.
I’m left behind for the last time.
Track Name: Six Twelve Song
If I could stand up tall for once in my whole life,
I think I’d be alright.
I want to talk to you. I’ve just always been so shy,
Can’t even lift my eyes.

I look straight ahead, refuse to shut my eyes.
I’m gonna live my life.
I look straight ahead, refuse to shut my eyes.
I’m gonna live my life.

Skin’s so thick. Spent years building up this wall,
Not ready for it to fall.
‘Cause this is it. In a second you’ll walk by,
Can’t even catch your eye.

I look straight ahead, refuse to shut my eyes.
I’m gonna live my life.
I look straight ahead, refuse to shut my eyes.
I’m gonna live my life.

Wanna be like you. You’re so brave, I have to try
To prove that I’m alive.
Just because I’ve let years pass me by,
Still time for me to try.

I look straight ahead, refuse to shut my eyes.
I’m gonna live my life.
I look straight ahead, refuse to shut my eyes.
I’m gonna live my life.

Got to be brave. I know I can be.
Can’t always run away from everything- yes indeed.

I look straight ahead, refuse to shut my eyes.
I’m gonna live my life.
I look straight ahead, refuse to shut my eyes.
I’m gonna live my life.
Track Name: On Being Free
I’ve been hiding for some time, behind facades of simplicity,
While the world sits back and laughs at me, to the tune of some other guy’s song.
But I think I’ve come to know me, to feel the grip of my own hand.
Not just to know, but to understand. Now why did it take so long?

I’m not so bad, you see. Just wild and free.
You’ve been a fool trying to chain me. I’m destined to be free-

Ooo… oo oo. Oooooo.

Can you forget your fears and come outside and play with me.
Instead of always running away from me. I promise I’ll show you some fun.
You’ve got a lovely mind, and I’ve been a dreamer too.
Can I just stand right next to you? I think that we both could be one.

I’m not so bad, you see. Just wild and free.
You’ve been a fool trying to chain me. I’m destined to be free-

Ooo… oo oo. Oooooo.
Track Name: Stories
Today’s the perfect day for catching stories from the wind,
And when I catch the seven wonders, a story I will spin.
I’ll write of singing birds, whispering trees, and how it all begins.
Then I’ll sing it back to you and hope that you will be my friend:

La la la la- la la la la la-
La la la la, la la- la la, la la.

I’ll catch exotic birds, learn their words, how they throw them at the sky,

And when their words inspire change, everyone’ll wonder why,
Cause it’s nothing I’ve not heard before, you can hear it in their cry.
They say, “This world’s a lovely place and we don’t have to die.”

No, we’ll never, never die-
La la la la- la la la la la-
La la la la, la la- la la, la la.
Track Name: Steps on Concrete
Love, makes us take up swords,
Makes us forget our words, like I regret mine.
Your love, lift my hands to take it in.
Try to catch it again and again. I won’t let go.

But my steps fall hard on the cold concrete
For the hundredth time in my life.
That we got this far is a mystery.
Everything I see reminds me of you.

Ah, love, can’t they see it in my eyes?
They just missed it? No surprise. I’ve heard that before.
Our love, they say that it is here to stay,
But why I always push you away, I’ll never know.

But my steps fall hard on the cold concrete
For the hundredth time in my life.
That we got this far is a mystery.
Everything I see reminds me of you.

Love, I’m a fighter now for you.
Yell and scream ‘til I turn blue again and again.
Because I’d take a bullet or two for you
If that was all that I could do, so let’s just stay friends.

But my steps fall hard on the cold concrete
For the hundredth time in my life.
That we got this far is a mystery.
Everything I see reminds me of you.
Track Name: What Have I Done
A dented spot there on the door,
Not the way it was before.
I knock and hope you’ll let me in.
When you don’t answer my head spins.

What’ve I done? What’ve I done?
I wish I had someone. Wish I had someone…

You pull your car into the drive,
And I cover my surprise.
I see your face look through the glass,
The look of pain that your eyes flash.

What’ve I done? What’ve I done?
I wish I had someone. Wish I had someone…

I came to offer up my tears,
And reassemble all the years…
‘Cause after all-

What’ve I done? What’ve I done?
I wish I had someone. Wish I had someone…
Track Name: After You've Gone
After you've gone and left me crying
After you've gone, there's no denying
You'll feel blue, you'll feel sad
You'll miss the dearest pal you've ever had

There'll come a time, now don't forget it
There'll come a time, when you'll regret it
Some day when you'll grow lonely
Your heart will break like mine and you'll want me only
After you've gone, after you've gone away
