Track Name: Heart
Beat, beat, steady now
Like our feet walking down
The cold, damp street, glistening with light

Your pulse, steady
How I can feel the in and out
And as it nears, whispering in rhyme

And when it's close to mine
They seem to beat in time
And when you're right beside
My world dances
So when the rhythm fades
We won't be afraid
Because the music will never die away

Breathe deep, slow it down
Don't try to speak — just hold me now
And feel our beat echoing in time

Your pulse, steady
How I can feel the in and out
And as it nears, beckoning in rhyme

And when it's close to mine
They seem to beat in time
And when you're right beside
My world dances
So when the rhythm fades
We won't be afraid
Because the music will never die away

No, the music will never die away
Track Name: Promises
Promises are made to be broken
Promises are made for the weak
You utter words not made to be spoken
Without the hopes and fears of a dream

You fall in love, you fall in love
And you fall in love with a home you'll never see

Keep the memory of the unspoken
Take the touch and breath you need
Hold him tight till you feel he's choking
Clench your fists and drop to your knees

You fall in love, you fall in love
And you fall in love with a home you'll never see

Does he dance the pain away?
Does he rock you till you break?
Does he slip inside your head and leave his memory there instead?
Is he all that I can't be?
Does he hold your every dream?
And are we nothing but a hope without a home?
Come take me home

Play my heart just like a token
Play my song and steal the beat
Wrap this rhythm around another
Sing these words till you find peace

You fall in love, you fall in love
And you fall in love with a home you'll never see

Come take me home
Track Name: Happy
You — you should just be here
Then it would be clear
Who was right

They — they don't know how to make the stars fall
They don't know how to make my skin crawl
They don't know how to make me fight

And we — we could just be happy
If we, we could just be happy

Wait, wait for the sunrise
Wait for the right time
Or till the right time's gone

Cause we — we could just be happy
If we, we could just be happy

I'm running in circles
Chasing this tale
A lover's last fight
We are going nowhere
But if we don't care
I'll be yours tonight

Love, there is no ending
No new beginning
That could make this right

Cause we — we could just be happy
If we, we could just be happy

I'm running in circles
Chasing this tale
A lover's last fight
We are getting nowhere
But if we don't care
I'll be yours tonight

And time tries not to hide
The wrinkles in your mind
It's we that build the wall
And it's we that make it fall

I'm running in circles
Chasing this tale
A lover's last fight
We're not going nowhere
But if we don't care
I'll be yours tonight
Track Name: Learning to Lose You
Pull the plug, loose your grip
Find my soul at your fingertips
Let me go, let me lie
In the grave of your mind

I will fall, I may drown
But feel my feet never touch the ground
I will soar, I will fly
But hear the beat as my heart cries...

You and I — we were made together
But you and I couldn't last forever
Now it's you and me, and honestly
I'm learning to lose you

Tip the scales to your side
Feel the weight fall from mine

I want to run and not look back
But I lose my feet to your heart's attack

You and I — we were made together
But you and I couldn't last forever
Now it's you and me, and honestly
I'm learning to lose you
Track Name: Try
Call me the beggar
You once called me the one
Now my calls go unanswered
And our song is unsung

Your love is another's
Your touch is his too
But do you ever remember
When our love was all that you knew?

All you had to do was try
All it would've taken was a moment of your time
All you had to do was try
And in your arms is where I'd die

You say you don't need it
You say that it's through
Yet you gave what I asked for
To every love that was new

All you had to do was try
All it would have taken was a moment of your time
All you had to do was try

But you took the easy road
Left me alone and cold
Tied to a million things
Things that we might have been
Disassembled your heart
Taking our love apart
Reinvented your mind
Telling yourself all the blame was mine

All you had to do was try
All it would've taken was the rest of our lives
All we had to do was try
And in your arms is where I'd die
Track Name: San Francisco
Your face 'round every corner
Your ghost I try to find
Corner of Grant and Sutter
Miles and years behind

When will I ever forget
All of the moments we spent
Chasing each other's shadow
From here to San Francisco?

Your touch was warm in winter
The city ours to take
But your words melt in the summer
When laughter fades to pain

When will I ever forget
All of the moments we spent
Chasing a love we let go
Through streets of San Francisco?

From here to San Francisco...

You haunt me down the highway
Rolling across the bay
Still running from my regret
I wish you'd made me stay

When will I ever forget
All of the lifetimes we spent
Chasing each other's shadow
From here to San Francisco?

When will I ever forget
All of the love that we left?
I still can hear it echo
Through streets of San Francisco

From here to San Francisco...
Track Name: Dreams
Lover, throw your cares on the fire
See how they burn
There is nothing you might require
That I cannot learn

Lover, throw your clothes on the wire
Watch as they fall
Darkness drapes your skin with desire
An irresistible call

So we run, run till the dawn
In the night's light, we are young
And we soar till the sun
In our last breath, we've begun

Eye and ear alone do conspire
Delicately
Touch will take us higher and higher
Till we cannot breathe

Not a soul will know what transpires
Fall into me
Lover I will be your attire
Effortlessly

So we run, run till the dawn
In the night's light, we are young
And we soar till the sun
In our last breath, we've begun

Though the stars fall to the sea
I will hold you tight to me
As the world falls fast asleep
I will be your every dream
Track Name: West
Sunrise on city sights
The tempest of the morning light
I find me tangled up in you

Quick feet on a stony walk
Cold hands and colder talk
I can't afford to see this through

I will leave you here, believe me
Even for all of my deceiving

I am not broken
But I am not confident
This is my hope and
This is all I can be to you

Long days and longer nights
True love on a westward flight
And true, still, a love I never knew

I don't mean to leave you bleeding
But my heart must keep on beating

I am not broken
But I am not confident
This is my hope and
This is all I can be to you

And you — you're falling to your knees
For all the lives we'll never lead
And as for them — they'll give until they bleed
But as for me — I love and then I leave

I am not broken
But I am not confident
This is my hope and
This is inconsequent
Cause I am not broken
I am not confident
This is my hope and
And this is all I can be to you

I'm giving up — I gave it all, and where's it gone?
For a love that will last, I long
And to the ones that are still holding on:
There is hope at the end of it all
Track Name: Texas
Baby, drive down to meet in our city
Baby, drive down tonight
You know I just miss those pretty,
Pretty little bright eyes

Cause lover, we can't stop tomorrow
But we can give everything today
So baby, drive down to be mine
Baby, drive down tonight

Cause all that we were is over and done
And darling, your love has already won
And I cannot say what is to come
But run to my arms, and I'll be the one

Fifty miles to the nearest city
Running to the state line
Windows down with the cold wind whipping
And Texas on your mind

Cause lover, we can't stop tomorrow
But we can give everything today
So baby, drive down to be mine
Just come home tonight

Cause all that we were is over and done
And darling, your love has already won
And I cannot say what is to come
But run to my arms, and I'll be the one

Baby, drive down to meet in our city
Baby, drive down tonight
You know I just miss those pretty,
Pretty little bright eyes

Cause lover, we can't stop tomorrow
All we can give is today
So baby, drive down to be mine
Baby drive down tonight

Cause all that we were is over and done
And darling, your love has already won
And I cannot say what is to come
But run to my arms, and I'll be the one

I'll be the one...
Run to my arms — I'll be the one
Track Name: Drive
Everyone's got a secret
Everyone's got a lie
So baby, tell me — was he worth it
This time?

And everyone's got a reason
Just to make it through the night
But if you can't see it working
Then who am I to ask why?

And so run away and don't look back
Cause the love you take is all that I had
And it'll be ok if you're the best I can have
Cause every heart you'll break will only drive you back
It'll drive you back

You take off for the country
Apart but not alone
And set your sights on someone
Whose heart can be your home

But lover, just remember
The last night that we had
Cause nothing else can hold you
The way these arms can

And so run away and don't look back
Cause the love you take is all that I had
And it'll be ok if you're the best I can have
Cause every heart you'll break will only drive you back

It'll drive you back

And so run away and don't look back
Cause the love you take is all that I had
And it'll be ok if you're the best I can have
Cause every heart you'll break will only drive you back

So run away and don't look back
Cause the love you take is all that I had
And it'll be ok if you're the best I can have
Cause every heart you'll break will only drive you back

It'll drive you back...
Track Name: Rescue Me
Let's turn back our hearts
And get lost in conversation
Is it all that we can be?

Moments from the start
Far from all this consternation
We were all that we could see

But if time is all we're hoping for
And if time is all we need
Will you one day show up at my door
Will you come and rescue me?

Rescue me, love
Come and rescue me...

Continents apart
Infinite, it seems, the distance
Still too close for me to breathe

Compliments to heart
Words do fall with such arrangement
As to hide our misery

But if time is all we're hoping for
And if time is all we need
There will never be a moment more
When your touch can rescue me

Rescue me, love
Come and rescue me...

Night may fall like rain
But light will crawl upon your face
And you'll remember me say
You'll remember me say...

Rescue me, love
Come and rescue me
Rescue me, love
Come and rescue me
Rescue me, love
Come and rescue me
Rescue me, boy
Come and rescue me

Night may fall like rain
But light will crawl upon your face
And you'll remember me say
It's too late
Track Name: Yesterday
Over and over again
Lover, it's over again
Touch me and breathe me in
Proving it's nothing but sin

And time goes on — we're getting older
The weight that's on your shoulders
Is breaking your back now
And love drags on, colder and colder
The embers that smolder
And smother your life out

So let's turn it back today
You always found a way into my heart
Into my heart
And love, let the record play
Our song from yesterday, and sing it loud
Let's sing it loud

Winter is passing us by
Dancing in soft lullabies
Holding a taste of us tight
Stolen by years of vain summer nights

And time goes on — we're getting older
The world that's on my shoulders
Is breaking my back now
And love drags on, colder and colder
The embers that smolder
And shutter the night out

So let's turn it back today
You always found a way into my heart
Into my heart
And love, let the record play
Our song from yesterday, and sing it loud
Let's sing it loud

Over and over again...
