Track Name: City Skyline
When I see the sunrise on this town
It’s going to be a perfect fall day
We’re all packed up and nothings left
Oh times have really changed

Waiting to leave this tiny space
It’s been my home now for a while
No looking back I’m leaving here with a suitcase and a smile

Close the door I want to feel
Drive away, away from here
‘Till I see the city skyline

Now that I finally have an answer
I will hold it close inside
And take that drive down Wilson Street
Cross the bridge I’ve crossed so many times

Close the door I want to feel
Drive away, away from here
‘Till I see the city skyline

Everyday I see something new
That’s the beauty of me and you
Letting go and losing all control

Close the door I want to feel
Drive away, away from here
‘Till I see the city skyline
Track Name: Don't Hide Away
I don’t question why you push
Respect the silence you ask of time
So concerned that no one knows
No one has ever tried

I’m reaching out but your reaching in
Let go of guilt and let your life begin
Take comfort in all you can
The calm only masks
What lies beneath you soul

I hold a mirror in my hands
Time will help with what you seek
But silence will delay your peace

It’s fear that drives you to this solitude
It’s not your destiny
Don’t deny the thoughts that hold you back
Don’t hide away from me

This endless slumber angers
How long till you awake
I’m lying here beside you
The place from which you ran

Patience is my enemy
It’s a long way back from where we began

It’s fear that drives you to this solitude
It’s not your destiny
Don’t deny the thoughts that hold you back
Don’t hide away from me

Silence won’t erase what brought you here
Will you remember me or hold the hand of fear
We may stumble in this life
But living it will bring you out

It’s fear that drives you to this solitude
It’s not your destiny
Don’t deny the thoughts that hold you back
Don’t hide away from me
The place from which you ran
Track Name: I Know
These tiny frames inside my head
Capture memories of the life that we share
I am overjoyed by these things
They fill me up just like a never ending sea

And I know that you’re the one I think of in the night
And I know the darkness fades when you are right beside me
And I’m waking and I’m finding out it’s real

It sometimes feels just like a dream
To see the place where I wanted to be
Where flowers bloom inside the fences
I wander in and find you waiting there for me

And I know that you’re the one I think of in the night
And I know that darkness fades when you are right beside me
And I’m waking and I’m finding out it’s real

And when a new day has come
I will open my eyes
To the colours that surround you
To the warmth of your smile

And I know that you’re the one I think of in the night
And I know that the darkness fades when you are right beside me
And I’m waking and I’m finding out it’s real
Track Name: Waverly
As I sit by the light of the moon
I’m reminded of the life that I knew
The good life they call it I guess
But I tired so quickly in my loneliness
And it’s me in Waverly tonight

Memories of the parties I threw
The champagne, I had more than a few
When the night ended I was alone
I could hear my own heart and it ached for a home
And I’m here in Waverly tonight

With some good friends who know who I am
We’ll escape by the bonfire we have on the land
And I’ll sleep on my front porch
Here in Waverly, where I found myself

My friends would say let’s go dirt road
And we’d drive for miles. It would never get old.
Like the promise I made to myself
On that day in the city when the world fell apart
And it’s real in Waverly tonight

With some good friends that know who I am
We’ll escape by the bonfire we have on the land
And I’ll sleep on my front porch
Here in Waverly where I found myself

Yes these good friends they know who I am
We’ll escape by the bonfire we have on the land
And I’ll sleep on my front porch
Here in Waverly where I found myself
Track Name: Through The Mystery
The water feels cool on my face
As it falls from above
Telling me I belong
Telling me that the sky won’t fall

I’m waiting for something greater
And I’m trying to be strong
I just feel so small
Sometime so unable

So come and take these chains that surround me
Help me find my way through the mystery

I just don’t know why
I am feeling so blue
I’ll just close my eyes
And all I see is you

So come and take these chains that surround me
Help me find my way through the mystery

And when I am cold
You warm my heart
You pick me up to the place where I needed to be

So come and take these chains that surround me
Help me find my way through the mystery
Track Name: Sign of Life
Staring out the window
Waiting for a sign
To find the things I want to say
To feel alive inside

The making of a memory
The moments that we share
Finding time to walk outside
To take in the fresh air

Colorado River take me far away
Loving every minute
Living every day
This is my sign of life

The beauty of a sunset
The sharing of a dream
The way you look into my eyes
It all makes sense to me

Life’s crazy little turns
That take you for a ride
Makes the person you become
Makes who you are inside

Colorado River take me far away
Loving every minute
Living every day
This is my sign of life

Looking at the mountains
Finding peace and strength
Finding what I want to say
Because I’m feeling
Yes, I’m feeling a live

Colorado River take me far away
Loving every minute
Living every day
This is my sign of life
Track Name: Cold Rain
Baby I’ve got your number
Baby it’s plain to see
What you want with all this time
I can’t understand but I’m not right
Now that I’ve got to get through
Now that you’re making me
It’s so hard when you’re not sure
Which path to cross, which way to turn

Cause your keeping me here
In this cold cold rain
There’s a fire that burned inside
And it was a flame

Trying to find an answer
Looking inside of me
There’s something more than this half glass
I’ve got to believe this too will pass

Cause your keeping me here
In this cold cold rain
There’s a fire that burned inside
And it was a flame

I’ll go down to the water and put my feet in
I’ll go down to the water and breathe in again
I’ll go I’ll go and I’ll believe
Yes I’ll believe
That you’re not keeping me here

In this cold cold rain
There’s a fire that burns inside
And it’s still a flame
So don’t be keeping me here
In this cold cold rain
There’s a fire that burns inside
And it’s still a flame
Track Name: Forget October
All of these cuts that I bear from the pain
Of my past haunting me into the night
How my skin crawls from this place
Will I ever get out of here

I’ll be okay for another day
Maybe more, maybe I’m at the bottom this time

I wake up inside from the light
Following down like the sound of a drum
Beating into my mind like it’s on fire
And all the screams become silent
As I lay sleeping tonight

But I’ll be okay for another day
Maybe more, maybe I’m at the bottom this time
I wake up inside from the light
I’m so far away

Can you hear what I say
Don’t be mad, please stay
Don’t be mad

I’m like a child and if these walls could talk
They’d ask “daddy what have you done to me now”
I’m all alone and your face is all that I see
I want to die

But I’ll be okay for another day
Maybe more, maybe I’m at the bottom this time
I wake up inside from the light
Track Name: Sweet Irene
All of these cuts that I bear from the pain
Of my past haunting me into the night
How my skin crawls from this place
Will I ever get out of here

I’ll be okay for another day
Maybe more, maybe I’m at the bottom this time

I wake up inside from the light
Following down like the sound of a drum
Beating into my mind like it’s on fire
And all the screams become silent
As I lay sleeping tonight

But I’ll be okay for another day
Maybe more, maybe I’m at the bottom this time
I wake up inside from the light
I’m so far away

Can you hear what I say
Don’t be mad, please stay
Don’t be mad

I’m like a child and if these walls could talk
They’d ask “daddy what have you done to me now”
I’m all alone and your face is all that I see
I want to die

But I’ll be okay for another day
Maybe more, maybe I’m at the bottom this time
I wake up inside from the light
Track Name: Waiting
Well, here we are in this sadness we find
And I can’t see any longer what we are

Oh how the days are so long
And the nights I am cold and alone
While I’m waiting

My heart breaks from the silence of this room
What happened here we were happy and in love

But oh how the days are so long
And the nights I am cold and alone
While I’m waiting

Waiting for you
waiting for me
Waiting for love
To come and set us free

And oh how the days are so long
And the nights I am cold and alone

Oh how the days are so long
And the nights I am cold and alone
While I’m waiting
Track Name: Keri
In the pages before me the story was told
Of a young brilliant angel who was left in the cold
And her black & white life turned all shades of grey
Her eyes clouded by the promises that never came her way

So she sailed to the shoreof safety
And collasped in the arms of a dream
The fairy tale life looked good from the outside
But inside she was crying for relief
Yes inside she was crying for relief

Keri I know you’re listening
Can you hear me please
Don’t close your heart out from the world
Don’t forget who you wanted to be
Keri, Keri don’t

Like a thief in the night she was put in a cage
As the spectators watch with their silent rage
And the story continues, the stars dance in the sky
And the angel remembers why she wanted to fly

In the silence of the dark night
The wind it would gently brush her face
To remind her of her quiet desperation
To bring her to another place
Bring her to another place

Keri I know you’re listening
Can you hear me please
Don’t close your heart out from the world
Don’t forget who you wanted to be
Keri, Keri don’t

Fly away, use your wings and fly
Fly away, use your wings and fly
Fly away, fly

Keri I know you’re listening
Can you hear me please
Don’t close your heart out from the world
Don’t forget who you wanted to be
Keri, Keri don’t
Track Name: She Hear's A Train
Wasting away so many days
Waiting for her ship to come in
She looks in the mirror and counts her teardrops
Each one that falls on her face

And she hears a train in the background of her mind
Saying roll on out of here, don’t ever look back

Tired of fighting she closes her eyes
And wishes she was somebody else
This horrible image of the person she thinks she is
Just won’t get out of her sight

But she hears a train in the background of her mind
Saying roll on out of here
Don’t ever look back

So she looks at the clock
Picks up a rock and throws it as far as she can
Time keeps on moving she just keeps feeling
She’s never getting out of this place

But she hears a train
In the background of her mind
Saying roll on out of here
Don’t ever look back

Yes she hears a train
In the background of her mind
Saying roll on out of here
Roll on out of here
Roll on out of here
Don’t ever look back
