Track Name: Run
Stay — just another night
I want to hold you tight
I want to just pretend

Love, once we were just friends
Now we're at the end
Now it's just a game of last mistakes

Cause I want a broken heart again
I just want to feel the knife dig in
I want to see my world collapse into the sea
And feel the weight fall from me

Once, all we had was us
And it was enough
But somehow we lost touch

Run — far as I can go
Leaving all I know
But knowing you will always be a part of me

Cause I want a broken heart again
I just want to feel the knife dig in
And I want to see my world collapse into the sea
And feel the weight fall from me

So when you see me running
You'll know the reason why
And if you see me crying
Just know I'm on your side
I know your heart is breaking
But get up off the floor
This ain't a love worth saving
This isn't love anymore

Cause I want a broken heart again
I just want to feel the knife dig in
And I want to see my world collapse into the sea
And feel the weight fall from me

So when you see me running
You'll know the reason why
And if you see me crying
Just know I'm on your side
I know your heart is breaking
But get up off the floor
This ain't a love worth saving
This isn't love anymore
Track Name: The Beauty and the Fire
You are the beauty and the fire
And dear, I have but one desire —
To see your face light up with light
To hear your heart beat on through the darkest night
But all we have is just a little time
All we have is just a little time
All we have is just a little time

But I can see your light is fading
And now it's place a fear is taking
Of all the loves and lives you've lost
Of all the countless tears and the tolls they've cost
And so you hang your hopes till your heart has stopped
Track Name: Awake
Ain't nobody gonna turn me off
From your touch
Ain't nobody gonna break me up
From this love

I'm dreaming of us
But it's not enough
Cause I miss you so much
I'm breathing for two
Can you try to?
Cause I need you to wake up

Ain't nobody gonna steal my eyes
From your gaze
I'll be living in your last twilight
All my days

I'm dreaming of us
But it's not enough
Cause I miss you so much
I'm breathing for two
Can you try too?
Cause I need you to wake up

Cause you were a fool to be brave
When the world's so cruel to the kindest face
But I'm lost, and I'm amazed
I could let you take this love to your grave

I'm dreaming of us
But it's not enough
Cause I miss you so much
I'm breathing for two
Can you try to?
Cause I need you to wake up…
Track Name: Stay
What is wrong
With these wide-eyed dreams
Of the simple things
Of all the ways that
You and I
We would fight so long
Until our words were gone
And we were enough

Cause dear I am the prodigal
And now our fate's entwined
This love is pathological
But darling I don't mind

Cause you don't have to be alone
And you don't have to be the one who's so strong
And I don't have to run away
All you need to do is tell me to stay

Lost again
Where did you go, my friend?
Why do you long for the end?
Why won't you take my hand?

Cause you don't have to be alone
And you don't have to be the one who's so strong
And I don't have to run away
All you need to do is tell me to stay

And we don't have to wait
For the end to come
Before we regain our faith
Before we learn how to love

Cause you don't have to be alone
And you don't have to be the one who's so strong
And I don't have to run away
All you need to do is tell me to stay

Tell me to stay…
