Track Name: 01. On and On
lost inside your head
it couldn’t last just like they said
the moments left feel like they’re dead
filling your empty bed

i’ve given all i got
but somehow life’s not what i thought
my ears are ringing with the shot
you were near and now you’re not

on and on…

life still moves along
trees in bloom now winter’s gone
it feels like most moved on and yet
i’m here to place my bet

that we still live in fear
of losing all that we hold dear
as one plays god deciding fate
am i the one that’s late

on and on…

you’ve given up on all i’ve had to offer you
but still i’ll haunt you, still i’ll haunt you
this side of truth that i have lived right next to you
that’ll haunt you, that’ll haunt you
ohh…

can’t find what went wrong
i’ll just keep on moving on
every moment makes me strong
‘cause i’m sure now that you’re gone
Track Name: 02. My Soul Awaits
the dust blew off
and under that wooden top
i found my soul
seemed hidden for years
in picture and written word
in this dark hole
it cast me away
into a distant land
as i watched unseen
but time wouldn’t stay
though i really wish it had
we all grow old

i ran through the trees
from problems that wouldn’t cease
but they weren’t there
made love out to be
an endless sea
i just couldn’t bare
you taught me so well
but some things you need
to find on your own
as i look back
you’re the only one
i’ve ever known

ohh…

my soul awaits…
Track Name: 03. Diamonds
the raging water washed over her feet
revealed the sand covering the trees
and for that one moment it was like
it’s just her and me
why couldn’t we stay right there forever and ever
it’s like it was just yesterday
and now here you are with tears in your face

she looked up and saw diamonds on the side of her hair
so beautiful - those years led, her life fully bare
broken down - on her knees now, she’s already there
then she looked up, and saw diamonds - saw diamonds

well i’m struggling so mightily with this cancer deep
as it flows right through her head
and in these days my thoughts have been so selfishly on me
but i see the strength in her eyes no compromise
it’s like it was just yesterday
now you’re holding me

under the city lights, the smell of smoke, and bloodshot eyes
we watch in awe of all that we hear them say
in all the stories told, of where they turn
it’s almost like a grand machine that’s moving everyday
and as we’re all alone, we’ll take a drink and toast the night that
gave us life and chased all the storms away
because i know right now, we’ll stay awake, as we’re face to face

she looked up and saw diamonds on the side of her hair
so beautiful - those years led, her life fully bare
broken down - on her knees now, she’s already there
then she looked up, and saw diamonds - saw diamonds
then she looked up, and saw diamonds...
Track Name: 04. Wonder
i wonder if she lied
i wonder if she cried
i wonder if i meant nothing at all
through the crooked glass
of broken hearts and dreams
it’s as if life isn’t quite as it seems

i wonder if i’d shown
i wonder if you’d known
i wonder if that would matter at all
what other people see
is that the heart of me?
or do i live what you wish i would be

i wonder if i would
i wonder if i could
i wonder if i’ll stop running at all
searching for your love
circling above
yet i feel like you’re hiding from me

i wonder from the start
did you have my heart
or did things change as we moved far apart
looking at the past
just wanting it to last
i guess i missed what i thought i could see

breaking down these walls
running out to sea
breathing the air that seems so fresh to me
to live for right now
someone please show me how
so i can live what i wish i could be

i wonder if i would
i wonder if i could
i wonder if i’ll stop running at all
searching for that love
while circling above
amidst the old truth that life’s chasing me

i wonder for the truth
i wonder for this life
because i know that it’s only begun
searching for a love
circling above
and now i’ll go - just don’t stop hearing me
and now i’ll go - just don’t stop hearing me
and now i’ll go - just don’t stop hearing me
Track Name: 05. Love Who's In Your Arms
frozen arrows - from the earth below
pierce the sparrow - death in cold dark snow
so this is who you are?
tell the story - of our empty past
as you hold me - know this time won’t last
so this is who we are?

you love who’s in your arms
so love who’s in your arms

looking forward - breathe let it begin
smile though empty - so they won’t get it
so this is who i am?
love we’ll cherish - love will find a way
though we’ll perish - at least we didn’t say
this is who we are

you love who’s in your arms
so love who’s in your arms

i couldn’t feel it this love in your arms - love in your arms
i couldn’t leave it this love in your arms - love in your arms

you love who’s in your arms
so love who’s in your arms

love we’ll cherish - love will find a way
though we’ll perish - at least we didn’t say
this is who we are
