Track Name: Come home to me
Come home to me

It's been a long road
worn my feet out to my soul
and it's been a long road
and this time I've walked it alone

I feel better when you're here
you've helped me find myself
and made it all so clear

It's taken time
but now I see
that lord I've made mistakes
I've made mistakes- but these mistakes don't make me

and I feel better when you're here
you've helped me find myself
and made it all so clear

I'll be better now
I'll make it up to you
I'll make it some how and you'll see
come home to me

I've done so many wrong
now it's time to make things right
because what I wouldn't give
for you to be here with me tonight

and I feel better when you're here
you've helped me find myself
and made it all so clear

I'll be better now
I'll make it up to you
I'll make it some how and you'll see
come home to me
Track Name: Halifax
Halifax

Let's not get wasted
cause my body's numb
I'll pick up these pieces
when I am done
give me a break here
cause I'm feelin' ill
I'm tryin to do the best I can

seems like we've got ourselves
in a sticky little mess
that's what you and I
do best

Halifax I've got your back
and I've been lonely too
it seems this city's just not
big enough for you
and if you'd say you'll leave today
well I'd be leaving too
cause when you fall
you fall
I fall
we fall
and that's just what we'll do

Let's not get stupid
cause my body aches
I've been breakin' hearts
makin mistakes
give me a reason
cause I can't explain
why these fiery skies have all turned grey

seems like we've got ourselves
in a sticky little mess
that's what you and I
do best

Halifax I've got your back
and I've been lonely too
it seems this city's just not
big enough for you
and if you'd say you'll leave today
well I'd be leaving too
cause when you fall
you fall
I fall
we fall
and that's just what we'll do

cause when you fall
you fall
I fall
we fall
and that's just what we'll do
Track Name: Tear you apart
Tear you apart

the world is sleeping
as I lie here wide awake
so many sleepless nights I've spent with you
lying here for your sake
I'll lie here undercover
cold as you sweat to death
you wrap your arms around and hold me
but I'll just hold this cigarette

and you say
please don't go changin'
but I couldn't if I tried
let's go back to basics
you and I

I wanna tear you apart
come on take it slow
show it to me in the dark
I wanna tear you apart
come on baby go and break my heart

your world has ended
mine unaffected remains the same
you needed me while you were hurting
but I just needed space
we'll lie here together
a warm body to embrace
you look me in the eyes and say you love me
I'll just smile and turn away

and you say
please don't go changin'
but I couldn't if I tried
let's go back to basics
you and I

I wanna tear you apart
come on take it slow
show it to me in the dark
I wanna tear you apart
come on baby go and break my heart
Track Name: To be free
To be free

Darlin darlin I'm goin away
like the leaves and the snow
when the seasons change
all the words we exchanged that lead us to break
finally free
I'm leavin I'm leavin
I'm leavin today
I'll be chasing these hopes
and these dreams that I've made
some with you
some without but I'll make due

and you told me
not to trust a man
who couldn't get past my eyes
and you said never settle
never compromise
and I won't

sing out sing out sing out
be bold be bold be bold
give in give in give in
to your soul your soul your soul
sit back relax and have faith|
accept and learn to embrace
all the things in life we don't understand
and the things we cannot change

It's time to be free...

We're fading fading
we faded out quick
I'll miss the warmth of your touch
with your hands on my hips
and the way you'd look at me and say
"babe you have the music"
I remember the times when we barely got by
we could just make our rent
and we worked to survive
we smoked cigarettes we drank a lot
and yeah we got high

and you told me
not to trust a man
who couldn't get past my eyes
and you said never settle
never compromise
and I won't

sing out sing out sing out
be bold be bold be bold
give in give in give in
to your soul your soul your soul
sit back relax and have faith|
accept and learn to embrace
all the things in life we don't understand
and the things we cannot change

It's time to be free...
Track Name: This city's dead
This City's dead

This city's dead, he said
It's only nine o'clock and they're rolling up the side walks
a big box town
it's hard to get around
you are my source of disappointment
where the dreamers all burn out
blue collar working for his dollar
tryin to get ahead
but he'll just gamble it instead
there's too many hurting for a penny
trying to live a life
where they work just to survive

I've been walkin
past these parking lots
and painted metal trees
you've been pacing
but I'll keep chasing
these unrealistic
big city dreams

I'll be
something some day
you'll see
my face and you'll remember me
and the life I chose instead
"don't go chasing what you don't know"
you said "I'll miss you so.."
so remember what you said?
that "this city's dead."
this city's dead.

this city's cold I know
I'm walkin down the street
with people walkin right through me
there's too many hurting for a penny
trying to live a life
where they work just to survive

I've been walkin
past these parking lots
and painted metal trees
you've been pacing
but I'll keep chasing
these unrealistic
big city dreams

I'll be
something some day
you'll see
my face and you'll remember me
and the life I chose instead
"don't go chasing what you don't know"
you said "I'll miss you so.."
so remember what you said?
that "this city's dead."
this city's dead.
Track Name: For you
For you

I'll try and pretend
like I'm not made of glass for a moment
I hope this moment lasts all day
cause I can see in your face
when you're in pain
and I'll try not to break
oh god give me strangth
and I'll try not to break for your sake

I wanna be like you
I wish that I could be strong too
cause you are
you are

you are the reason I am who I am today
and when I come home you make me feel- just like
I've never gone away
you are the reason I am who I am
who I am today

Don't try and pretend
like you don't see the elephant inside this room
we both know that it's there
and we're both quite aware
of all the damage it's caused
and the time that it's been
I'd give myself away
just for you to be okay

I wanna be like you
I wish that I could be strong too
cause you are
you are

you are the reason I am who I am today
and when I come home you make me feel- just like
I've never gone away
you are the reason I am who I am
who I am today
Track Name: Just to know you
Just to know you

It's been a long time
since I've seen you smile
and I can't remember last
when we could be happy
without a care in the world
our days became numbered
and although I know
you must leave
I'll still stay until it's over

and this road ahead
it only gets harder
because when that day comes
I won't be ready
I don't want you to leave

cause my heart
yes my heart
only beats for you
and you my love
yes my love
will live on forever because
it's true what they say
that it's better to fall
from falling in love
then not to love at all
and I'll stay here until you must go
because it's been worth all this pain
just to know you...

I'm trying to keep
yes I'm trying to keep smiling
it's just so hard
when Is see you crying
I've seen you live I've seen you laugh
and now you will be taken
and even though I know
you must leave
still my heart is breaking

and this road ahead
it only gets harder
because when that day comes
I won't be ready
I don't want you to leave

cause my heart
yes my heart
only beats for you
and you my love
yes my love
will live on forever because
it's true what they say
that it's better to fall
from falling in love
then not to love at all
and I'll stay here until you must go
because it's been worth all this pain
just to know you...

and you push me away
so I don't see you
falling apart
but it's here
that I'll stay
even though it's killing me
it's breaking my heart
I'd do anything anything
just to have you stay with me
isn't that what love is?
being with you
after knowing...

and this road ahead
it only gets harder
because when that day comes
I won't be ready
I don't want you to leave

cause my heart
yes my heart
only beats for you
and you my love
yes my love
will live on forever because
it's true what they say
that it's better to fall
from falling in love
then not to love at all
and I'll stay here until you must go
because it's been worth all this pain
just to know you...

my love.
Track Name: Shutter Speed
Shutter Speed

You came and cured my loneliness
I'd been walkin around
with this hole in my chest
the drought was long
all my love was gone
I'd been down to the bottle
and somewhere far beyond

in this world of only night
you were there just to light up mine
and I'll be with you until you take flight
and maybe I'll sleep tonight

here we go
you've got my heart racing shutter speed
like whoa
you've got me right down to my soul
and I just thought I'd let you know
that I've been
shuttering
shuttering
since you took hold

you rid me of my tendencies
in the time I was blind
you only led me to see
that my guards were up
but you called my bluff
and you broke em down
and you showed me love

in this world of only night
you were there just to light up mine
and I'll be with you until you take flight
and maybe I'll sleep tonight

here we go
you've got my heart racing shutter speed
like whoa
you've got me right down to my soul
and I just thought I'd let you know
that I've been
shuttering
shuttering
since you took hold
Track Name: Cocaine

and soon we won't have slept for weeks.

in the city sky
and some how you've made me feel
like there's only you and I
by the way you touch me slow
and the way you make my heartbeat go

I'm bound to your city streets
and with you pressed against my skin
