Alliance 02:36
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.

Drifters 04:29
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.

Rhetoric 03:49
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

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...

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.

Circus Clown 02:42
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.

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.

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.

How Sweet 05:19
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.

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.
