Track Name: Alliance
Slivers of the moon
Seek alliance with the stars
Shrouded and adorned
Extrovertly shy
Your essence fills my sky.

Voices on the air
Seek refuge in my ears
Screamed within a whisper
Powerfully still
Your words always fulfill.

Lessons from the past
Rest sweetly by my side
Hanging from the strongest thread
Silent in delight
The future taking flight.

Slivers of your smile
Seek alliance with eyes
Hiding yet exploring
Gracefully reclined
You never leave my mind
You never leave my mind.
Track Name: Drifters
Leave my side
Follow the storyline
You denied
Love was in steep decline.

Save your lies
I need no charity
Truth will rise
Higher than you can see.

Every sky reveals the scars
Legacies of long dead stars
Light the dreamer’s fire
Worry not when love has gone
Fan the flames and carry on
Ready yourself for flight
Drift into the night.

Heavy sighs
Watching the curtain fall
Dry your eyes
You made the early call.

High above
The message is now clear
We break love
When we give into fear.

Let us find a loaded gun
Take these stars out one by one
This is our goodbye
You go your way, I’ll go mine
Maybe we don’t get to shine
Lovers in sweet demise
Drifters in the skies.
Track Name: Rhetoric
Fly
Fly

Hey, can you hear me up there?
Don't you know you've got me dreaming?
Can you see me through your blinding stare?
Do you even know I'm there?

What a fairytale you're showing me tonight
As the moon glows softly in her light
And the stars in a necklace across the sky
It's a story of two lovers who long to fly.

Fly
Fly

All the reasons that you're calling me tonight
Don't you know why you've got me thinking?
How many times can you take your toll
Running wild inside my soul?

What a fairytale you're showing me tonight
As the moon glows softly in her light
And the stars in a necklace across the sky
It's a story of two lovers who long to fly.

Fly
Fly

Stay low and let your feelings flow
Stay low and watch the fire grow
Stay low and let your feelings flow
Stay low and watch the fire grow
Stay low and let your feelings flow
Stay low and watch the fire grow

Grow
Grow
Track Name: The Garden Path
I followed you down the garden path
Tempted by your smile
Sheltered for a while.

Tracing your words into the past
Why must I be last
Last to find that
Peace of mind has many colours.

Oh the lies we tell
Why make out the fire feels the same
Then douse the flame?

I followed you down the garden path
Light began to fade
On promises you made.

Watching your shadow disappear
How did I get here
When every piece of me believed
You walked beside me.

Oh the lies we tell
Why make out the fire feels the same
Then douse the flame?

Then douse the flame..
Then douse the flame...
Track Name: Where we Need to Be
This time gotta let her go
She gets confused but she knows enough to know
She must go her own way.

Today gotta let it show
The pain gets tough and the tears begin to fall
I'm not standing so tall.

Lie underneath the shade of a tree
Catch your uncertainties
I will believe, when I see
Where I need to be
Where I need to be.

Sometimes I run and hide
Face the truth that's burning inside
Solitary resolve.

But tell me what are you to do
When the love you give isn't coming back to you?
Tired of playing the fool.

Rise up and leave the shade of the tree
Capture your dignity
Kick through the leaves
And set yourself free
Where you need to be
Where you need to be.

Mr. Conclusive
Why so elusive?
What if we collided in different time?
Hypotheticals were never a friend of mine.

This time gotta let her go
I got confused but I know enough to know
I must go my own way.
Track Name: Circus Clown
I need some patience tonight
My mind is picking a fight
Good thoughts are starting to slide
There's nowhere left to hide.

I'm reaching out for your touch
You know I want it so much
Distance is dragging me down
I am the circus clown.

I hide my heartache
Behind a painted face
Smile wide and fake it all
Too many lines I must recall.

I need some patience tonight
My mind is picking a fight
Good thoughts are starting to slide
There's nowhere left to hide.

I've got to turn this around
Be grateful for what we found
I'm tired of losing the night
I'm tired of chasing the light.

I need some patience tonight
I need some patience tonight.
Track Name: Hungry for Love
Started as lovers, right to the end
You were a stranger to me.
Too many words, too little time
To just understand what we'd seen.

I could have been the one you needed
But I wouldn't have been myself
No I wouldn't have been myself.

We never listen to those voices
Telling us we should slow down
Love doesn't give us any choices
Sweeping our feet off the ground.

Woke in the morning, struggled for breath
Choking on things that you said.
No more pleading crimes of passion
How about sorry instead?

I couldn't have dreamed a different ending
This is the way it should be
This is the way it should be.

We never listen to those voices
Telling us we should slow down
Love doesn't give us any choices
Sweeping our feet off the ground.

So pack your bags and put them outside
Go take a walk in the cold
I may be in rags but I am shining
You know the riches I hold

And we'll wait for those who'll feed us
When we are hungry for love
When we are hungry for love.

We never listen to those voices
Telling us we should slow down
Love doesn't give us any choices
Sweeping our feet off the ground.

We never listen to those voices
Telling us we should slow down
Love doesn't give us any choices
Sweeping our feet off the ground.

We never listened to those voices
Love didn't give us any choices.
Track Name: Scorch the Past
Hold on, let go
Too fast, too slow
Colours losing their way.

Silence leads me
Closer to thee
Where my shadows can play.

Fear not the darkness
Pacing the night
Birds will be singing
Long before light.

Old scar, new bleed
Cold ground, new seed
Shadows biding their time.

Hearts so swollen
Beats are stolen
Who will punish this crime?

Dancing reflections
Swiftly denied
Gaze out your window
Turn to the side
Anything but look me in the eye
Speak your truth and take to the sky.

Carve the confusion deep in my mind
Feels like I'm losing more than I find..

Oh solitude brings clarity
Ghosts lining up to take on me
Fires buring through my memories
Scorch the past
Release me.
Track Name: How Sweet
How sweet
How sweet it could be
Just to set myself free
And fall for you.

I feel
You piercing my skin
Your smile is a sin
I love to forgive.

Oh it's beautiful
I sink inside
I'm told it's incredible
Why do I hide?

How sweet
How sweet it could be
Just to cut myself free
And share with you.

Oh it's beautiful
I sink inside
I'm told it's incredible
Why do I hide?

Every time you come along
I lie to myself
That you don't belong
I wanna try to give you more
To have it all but I
Can't help but hide.
Track Name: Time and Tide
We live under a spell
Hoping that time will tell
But time has no designs on how we feel
We must load the deck before the deal.

Blindly resigned to fate
Our dreams will soon stagnate and
Dampened by the stormclouds of our fears
Passion fades until it disappears.

The thorn in my side sinks deeper
But to swallow my pride is too much to concede
I'd much rather bleed, tonight.

And so the scars remain
Upon the shores of pain
Eternal are the lessons learned this way
No tumbling tide shall ever wash away.

A delicate mind seems bleaker
So flash me a smile as I'm starting to slide
The dark will subside, tonight.

Lights in the sky bring healing
Blankets of stars dance in time with the moon
My heart falls in tune
Knowing that their love will reach me soon.
