IN THE DEAD OF NIGHT
If you don’t want me then that’s alright but don’t leave me by a silent phone
You never call when you say you will and I end up alone
Every time we kiss goodnight and all the world seems fine
Then you vanish in total darkness leaving me behind

Then you call me up in the dead of night
Still waiting for you
I try to sleep but it may as well be light
In the dead of night

For a while I’m in your life then you cut me clear to the bone
Sick from all the damn medication, pulling me through mind zones
I’m sick of you and I’m sick of hearing promises you don’t keep
Why don’t you just leave me dear so I can get some sleep

Then you call me up in the dead of night
Still waiting for you
I try to sleep but it may as well be light
In the dead of night

I’d be through, through with you if you’d just let me go
And if you stay, that’s okay, but you gotta let me know

I’m sick of you and I’m sick of hearing promises you don’t keep
Why don’t you just leave me dear so I can get some sleep

Then you call me up in the dead of night
Still waiting for you
I try to sleep but it may as well be light
In the dead of night

SOMEONE ISN’T ME
There’s a weight upon you and the body’s tense
And there’s no time now for makin’ pretend
You’re digging through the mire that is our love
And all the time you knew there were other places I could’ve run to

All I need is a chance to break free of this mess you left behind
‘Cause I’ve run out of patience so you’ve run out of time
So now don’t you worry ‘bout who the next someone will be
All I know is someone isn’t me

Longing to remember, lost in memory
But, it’s the only thing I got that I can hold onto
You’d make it last forever until you drained me dry
And all that’s meant to last forever now has to end

All I need is a chance to break free of this mess you left behind
‘Cause I’ve run out of patience so you’ve run out of time
So now don’t you worry ‘bout who the next someone will be
All I know is someone isn’t me

Oh, I remember you
Now, I’ll never, never, never forget

All I need is a chance to break free of this mess you left behind
‘Cause I’ve run out of patience so you’ve run out of time
So now don’t you worry ‘bout who the next someone will be
All I know is someone isn’t me

Isn’t me
Someone isn’t me
Isn’t me
Someone isn’t me
Someone isn’t me
Someone isn’t me

PROMISE ME A NEW START
Maybe I tried too hard
Maybe I didn’t try hard enough
Things I could’ve done
Things I didn’t notice much

I coming back again
Mind’s made up, you’re where I wanna be
Yeah, I coming back again
Try to work it out together baby, you and me

Say what’s on your mind
And I’ll try to say what’s in my heart
I need more than words
I need a promise, so promise me a new start

I coming back again
Mind’s made up, you’re where I wanna be
Yeah, I coming back again
Try to work it out together baby, you and me

Went out searching but something went wrong
Where was the love I missed?
Ending up hurting and nights were so long
Can’t go on living like this
Well, I made it through the darkest night when things were all out of reach
And I’m still holding on

Maybe we can take it easy
No sense in coming on too strong
Maybe we can take our time
Get things right before we get ‘em all wrong

I coming back again
Mind’s made up, you’re where I wanna be
Yeah, I coming back again
Try to work it out together baby, you and me

I coming back again
Mind’s made up, you’re where I wanna be
Yeah, I coming back again
Try to work it out together baby, you and me

WHEN I’M AWAKE
Throw me a line, throw me a weight
Left there to drown while you laugh on the beach
All that I give you, and all you could take
All the forgiveness, and all the mistakes

Love me, hold me
Love me, hold me

Live through the good, fight through the bad
You tell me to run, but there’s nowhere I can
Hopelessly flawed and hopelessly rash
Walking the wire like a drunk acrobat

Love me, hold me
Love me, hold me
Love me, hold me

I can’t be with you when I’m awake
I’d sleep forever if that’s all it takes

But things that I hope for and things that I dream
Mean nothing without you, I know and it seems
That only two people of such different castes
With nothing in common have nothing to last

Love me, hold me
Love me, hold me

Look at me once just to see who I am
Maybe there’s something we’d both understand

Love me, hold me
Love me, hold me

I can’t forget you, I can’t even try
but I can keep dreaming the rest of my life

Love me, hold me
Love me, hold me

PRAY FOR RAIN
The first thing I remember of all the times before
Was watching you walk out on me while I stood in the door
You in your favorite dress dragging our old suitcase
And IU just prayed for rain to wash it all away

Anyway I’ll wait
Try to get on with the day
Then tonight I’ll pray for rain

Another time this friend of mine stabbed me in the back
Sold all my possessions and all the time he laughed
He used to his advantage the friendship we had made
And i just prayed for rain to wash it all away

Anyway I’ll wait
Try to get on with the day
Then tonight I’ll pray for rain

And I never, I never wanted for this life to bring me so far down
‘Cause it’s never right, it’s never right so let the rain come pouring down

When I’m dreaming and laying in my bed
I think about the things I should’ve done and should’ve said
And each scenario runs on like a play
And I just pray for rain to wash it all away

The last thing I remember of all the times before
Was saying goodbye to all the world outside my door
It’s safe inside here, I’m an outcast anyway
And I just pray for rain to wash it all away

Anyway I’ll wait
Try to get on with the day
Then tonight I’ll pray for rain

PICTURE ON MY WALL
I want to tell you girl
Say everything ‘cause you don’t know
Sweet angel of my dreams
I’m wanting you to be with me

Do you notice me when we’re together?
Do you think of me when we’re apart?

I got your picture on my wall
Cause you’re the only one I at all
I tell it of the things I wanna do
When I find the courage I’ll find you

Oh, honey rescue me
From everything that I don’t know
And learn to love me too
Just like the way that I love you

Do you notice me when we’re together?
Do you think of me when we’re apart?

I got your picture on my wall
Cause you’re the only one I at all
I tell it of the things I wanna do
When I find the courage I’ll find you

I hear a symphony whenever you walk by, even in a crowd
And when you’re away from me
I wanna call your name out loud …scream it out

Don’t walk away from me
Give me a chance, you never know
Come out and play with me
Let’s do the town, come on let’s go

Do you notice me when we’re together?
Do you think of me when we’re apart?

I got your picture on my wall
Cause you’re the only one I at all
I tell it of the things I wanna do
When I find the courage I’ll find you

I’ll find you
I’ll find you
I’ll find you

PICK UP THE PIECES
When sadness comes creeping as the clouds unfold
Carries with it the allure from days of old
I’ll be sitting in the station coming in from the cold

When your heart is empty and you’re all on your own,
Need the touch of someone who captures the old
A spark, a thought, a feeling to latch on and to hold

If you feel like you’re losing your mind one day at a time
When life has treated you so wrong and so unkind
I’ll be there to pick up the pieces one more time

All things come full circle, back and forth we go
And we learn much more than we were ever told
But something brings us back there to things we never figured or resolved

If you feel like you’re losing your mind one day at a time
When life has treated you so wrong and so unkind
I’ll be there to pick up the pieces one more time

Like a mystery running wild that I long to solve
But it feels like we’re the only ones involved
And the road that leads me back there looks different now that you’re gone

If you feel like you’re losing your mind one day at a time
Well just hold now, it’s gonna be alright
I’ll be there to pick up the pieces one more time

MAKE IT ON OUR OWN
The purple sky and bluebirds in the trees
Looking down on you and me
Under a roof shaded from the sun
We’ll live our dream

And whatever may come our way
We’ll stare it down and walk away
You’d better leave us alone
We’ll make it on our own

Speeding on a highway to the sun
Just the chance to be as one
On a road to nowhere fast
We’ll live our dream

And whatever may come our way
We’ll stare it down and walk away
You’d better leave us alone
We’ll make it on our own

If they try to build a wall between us
Divide us into pieces
Oh, why can’t they just leave us alone?

We’ll fight until the final round and see
It will still be you and me
We’re the ones who would do anything
We’ll live our dream

And whatever may come our way
We’ll stare it down and walk away
You’d better leave us alone
We’ll make it on our own

We’ll make it on our own
We’ll make it on our own
We’ll make it on our own
We’ll make it on our own

LOSE IT ALL
Hey, why you make us wait?
We got our bags all packed and the man’s been callin’ our name
Wait, gotta feed my brain
‘Cause everybody knows we may never be around again

So we pushed up against the wall
And we tried to make it fall
And as the mortar fell around us we were ready then to lose it all
And as the days fell into night
And the fires cast their light
We knew that in the morning we’d be ready again to lose it all

Hate, why you make us hate
You take until there’s nothing to take and then you take some more
Shame, you got yourself to blame
And we’re leaving you with nothing and that’s exactly what you had before

So we pushed up against the wall
And we tried to make it fall
And as the mortar fell around us we were ready then to lose it all
And as the days fell into night
And the fires cast their light
We knew that in the morning we’d be ready again to lose it all

‘Cause there’s no Cinderellas here or any day
And we aren’t asking this of you
But there’s a reason and you are right here anyway
So now the guesswork’s over
So now the guesswork’s over
So now the guesswork’s over
Overwrought and over you

Great, that’s all there is to say
You can talk until you’re blue in the face and nothing’s gonna change
Shame, you got yourself to blame
And we’re leaving you with nothing and that’s exactly what you had before

So we pushed up against the wall
And we tried to make it fall
And as the mortar fell around us we were ready then to lose it all
And as the days fell into night
And the fires cast their light
We knew that in the morning we’d be ready again to lose it all

NOW FOR GOOD
Where do we go from here?
Lie and tell me it’s all right as we hold each other tight

Is it just a fear of love?
Are you scared to death like me wondering how it’s gonna be?

Baby, said you got me waiting
Waiting for you now
Is it true you love me now for good?

We’d meet at morning’s light
Watch the day turn into night, never thinking of goodbye

You know I’ll always have a hand to lend
That’s why you’re always gonna be my friend that I love until the end

Baby, said you got me waiting
Waiting for you now
Is it true you love me now for good?

And our waltz plays on and on
So neither has to say what words fail to convey

Baby, said you got me waiting
Waiting for you now
Is it true you love me now for good?

Darling, are you really staying?
Staying with me now
Is it true you love me now for good?

Baby, said you got me waiting
Waiting for you now
Is it true you love me now for good?

IN THE NAME OF LOVE
A handful of moments dance in time
Reflections on the water ripple the sky
All’s well in the moment, so sublime
Acting on a foggy notion of what’s right

We just act and never stop to think of
The consequences of just who we have become
And what we do are the worst things in the name of love

Never stop to wonder or ask why
We hurt the ones we love most every time
Deciding in the moment, without design
Acting on a foggy notion of what’s right

When we learn what once was truth is just a lie
Meant to build you up, then tear you down to size
And what we do is to learn to live with alibis
Never stop to wonder or realize
To forgive the ones we love most every time

In the end what is left for us to see
We blur the lines of fiction and reality
And what we do is just to side with what we most believe

RELEASE ME (Baldrachi)
How many more times should I call?
How much longer can I wait?

She said, “Release me and let me go”
Release me, release me
And let me be alone

Oh mother what should I do?
I have been such a fool
Don’t take no pity on me
Don’t feel sorry for me
I’ve built a wall around us all

Release me and let me go
Release me, release me
And let me be left alone – alone

Underneath the sycamore tree
I plot out my destiny
I’m chasing my dreams
Though the journey has left me tired and empty

She said, “Release me and let me go”
Release me, release me
And let me be alone

SOLID GROUND
I’m looking for a place to speak my mind
In a haze under atomic light
I just wanna, I just wanna, wanna be me
To share it, to take it, to have it all eternally

But I can’t give up and I can’t slow
I keep my feet on solid ground
Where it begins and wherever I go
And where I land nobody knows

If I could only change what’s in my head
I might decide what outta be said
Am I steady, am I strong enough to clear my head
And take what’s coming all the way to the edge

But I can’t give up and I can’t slow
I keep my feet on solid ground
Where it begins and wherever I go
And where I land nobody knows

Someone tried to tell me something
About the world around us
Try to paint a mental picture
One that will last forever
But now you take your first steps
With nothing to hold onto
What makes it seem so dangerous?
What makes it seem so different now?

Complications and frustrations have taken hold
Everyone’s a victim or so I’m told
Feeling good about the steps that I’m gonna take
Remember all the good things in their wake

But I can’t give up and I can’t slow
I keep my feet on solid ground
Where it begins and wherever I go
And where I land nobody knows

A BETTER PLACE
My dear, things ain’t really clear
All the promises you make when you whisper in my ear
Well, I stumble and I’m running out of luck
When I ask her for an answer she says, “my heart’s in flux.”

Wipe the mascara from your face
Oh God there’s gotta be a better place

Now you wonder and you ask yourself
Are you happy with your lot or with your circumstance?

Sit around and think about the past
The things you left behind, the things that didn’t last
The things that didn’t last

She said, “I’m feeling lonesome like I always am.”
Oh, let me take your hand

My dear, things ain’t really clear
All the promises you make when you whisper in my ear

Once outside you still hang on
Too scared to let go, too scared to live alone

Too scared to live alone
Too scared to live alone
Too scared to live alone
Too scared to live alone
Too scared to live alone
To live alone

BREAKDOWN
I gotta keep steady dealing with this heartache
Though my mind’s at rest, my heart is a mess
Can’t you see I’m trying to get through to you
Every waking moment, yeah my heart is hellbent
Though I don’t make a sound, let’s meet on common ground
Can’t you see I’m trying to get through to you

Oh no, here it comes again, Oh no, I’m gonna breakdown again
Oh no, here we go again, Oh no, we’re gonna breakdown again

I know this ain’t easy, but do you believe me?
Well I hope for the best, but should we settle for less?
Can’t you see i’m trying to get through to you

Now that you know me, I’ll show you what could be
If you give me the time, well, things will be fine
Can’t you see I’m trying to get through to you

Oh no, here it comes again, Oh no, I’m gonna breakdown again

YOU’RE GONNA MISS ME SOMEDAY
If you walk, then I’ll run
You’re feeling weak, but I’m strong
When I call, you’re not these
You want more, but what is fair?
When we’re alone sometimes

When I talk, you don’t hear
You’re so far, when I’m near
We all change over time
You’re gonna miss me someday

When I bleed is when you heal
When your numb is when I feel
Every time that I walk away

When I talk, you don’t hear

WAIT IN VAIN
She, with a smile on her face masks the devil that is inside
She, sits alone in her room contemplating what is right
Give it some time
So much time ahead of you don’t you realize
Everything will come in time

Give it some time
Show ‘em what’s right
You wait in vain
You’re waiting outside
Everything you want is inside

Well, you better, better heed my voice
Don’t let them fool you into something you don’t want
Give it some time
Show ‘em what’s right
You got the time
Show ‘em what’s right

She, leaving for another place after such a real short time
She, making sense of her own world, making sure she’s doing right
So much time ahead of you, you don’t realize
Everything will come in time

You wait in vain
You’re waiting outside
What you need will come in time
Give it some time

You’re waiting outside

ROUND AND ROUND
As time goes by, these images flash before my mind
Of someone who is here today and gone tomorrow and left to die

Until they knock me to the ground
I’m riding on a merry-go-round
And round and round until I fall
I gotta know if it’s the call
Round and round and round

If not for me than for me, there’s so very few that I’ve enlisted
The ones who stand by me with great direction and good advices

Until they knock me to the ground
I’m riding on a merry-go-round
And round and round until I fall
I gotta know if it’s the call
Round and round and round

Time slowly catches all the heartaches and failed reconstruction
If not for you than for my head
More fun than playing dead, I’m hanging by a thread

Until they knock me to the ground
I’m riding on a merry-go-round
And round and round until I fall
I gotta know if it’s the call
Round and round and round

This is where it gets good, where everything pays off
And now you start to realize at such little cost

Start it up again, Start it up again
Tough as it may be, a fool could figure why

MAKING SENSE OF NOTHING
Never found a reason to tell me why
Always vacant, wrapped in your disguise
You’re like a flower that never blooms, growing old too soon
But you never wanted to be that way again

Never found an easy way to lie
Always shrouded hide behind your eyes
You’re like a love that never grows, alone and no one knows
But you never wanted to be that way again
No, you tried so hard to rearrange everything you said
And you can’t let go, no you can’t let go, no you can’t let go

I watched you fall, I watched you try
And you’re making sense of something that just makes no sense at all

You’re like a love that never grows, alone and no one knows

(ARE YOU SURE THAT) WE BELONG?
Feeling good about the times ahead of me
And I’m feeling good cause I know they’ll last
Leave behind the things you left at my door
Do I make sense of the pieces of you?

But you never stop at all
You’ve been moving too fast for too long
Are you sure that we belong?

Like a charade, dare to remember, my crooked face, hearts beating faster
Secrets in time, the truth will come out
Chilled to the bone, strong as a feather, given some time, come to an answer
Pretending that we don’t mean a word we say

But you never stop at all
You’ve been moving too fast for too long
Are you sure that we belong?

Summer comes and not too fast for everyone
The sunlight feels good when it hits my face
Think about the future plans we’ve left undone
Now, think about the words never said
But you never stop at all
You’ve been moving too fast for too long
Are you sure that we belong?

A field of dreams, froze in December, rise from the dead, up from the gutter
Secrets in time, the truth will come out
Plotting a scheme, your simple torture, given some time, come to an answer
Pretending that we don’t mean a word we say

But you never stop at all

WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME?
Never figured out how hard it’s gonna be
But you tried to comfort me in my time of need
Tried to find a way and learn to figure out or just stay and work it out
Oh, just one more time

Don’t you want for me to say what’s wrong?
Don’t you want for me not to stand alone?
Don’t you want for me to be like you?
Don’t you want for me to see it through?

The things that seem so easy never are that clear

Don’t you want for me not to stand alone?
