Track Name: We Were Walking
I was standing in the spotlight, of the quarter moon
We were dancing, dancing all too soon
In this big wide world we live in, see only one side
And decisions decide, for us our lives

Walking, talking, and breathing each other in
Straying, falling always wondering
While we walk

I wanted to be a bird, I wanted to fly from home
But now I am lost, lost beyond belief
I thought I was going somewhere, but I’m not moving
Because I can’t help, from choosing

Walking, talking, and breathing each other in,
Straying, falling always wondering
While we walk

Where am I? Where are we? Are we stuck in between?
I don’t know, I’m not sure, there’s nothing left in my dreams
There is nothing I am certain of, except the fact that
I’m not home

Walking, talking, and breathing each other in,
Straying, falling always wondering
Walking, talking, and breathing each other in,
Straying, falling always wondering
While we walk
Track Name: Too Much
I think I think too much
I think I drink too much
I think I fight too much
But I don't, walk enough
I think I wait too much
I think I daydream enough
I think I talk too much
But I don't, live enough

And it's time I give it up
The waiting and the talking
About everything, I ever wanted to do
And if I wait much more I might as well just sleep
With my dreams, in the night

I think I look too much
I think I feel too much
But I'm numb enough with you
And I think I'm high enough
To dream of her
But I dream too much to pull
Myself through

And it's time I give it up
The waiting and the talking
About everything, I ever wanted to do
And if I wait much more I might as well just sleep
With my dreams, in the night

I think I look too much
I think I feel too much
I think I talk too much so I'll stop
Track Name: Write It On My Skin
Write it on my skin, it's there forever
And this ones soon to get you
As long as you are waiting
I can't drink no more, I can't drink no less
May not seem the best, but who's to judge the rest

I can't say stop, don't go
I can't say stop, don't go

You give me that foreign page
And say now who'll be saved
I don't want to forget, cos everyone forgets now
And say that we'll stop and see
What's good for her and good for me
What's good for me?

Write it on my skin, and I read it every day
It's nowhere, it's nowhen
Seems like from before, it seems like time
Has played it's trick on me
I wish that I had seen

I can't say stop, don't go
I can't say stop, don't go

Can't help but go back in time
And take what should've been mine
I don't want to forget, cos everyone forgets now
And say that we'll stop and see
What's good for her and good for me
What's good for me?
What's good for me?

I don't want to be, apart, from you
Track Name: Time Is The Enemy
Those days that felt like weeks
Just being alive
They ran out on you quick
It's a pity you're a prick
There's no time tonight
But I still feel bored
The walls have nothing to say
They're empty with the day

I was never the one to, try or try my best
I was never the one alone in the nest
But since then I've found that it's time
Since then I've found that it's time
Time is the enemy

I never had this before
I never get alone
And routine is killing me
Now I'm stuck in between
The voices through the walls
Are going through my head
I know what I've got to do
Kill the routine

I was never the one to, try or try my best
I was never the one alone in the nest
But since then I've found that it's time
Since then I've found that it's time
Time is the enemy

I was never the one to, try or try my best
I was never the one alone in the nest
But since then I've found that it's time
Since then I've found that it's time
Track Name: Waiting
Waiting around to be told I'm second best
The rest of the time I seem to be behind
Waiting for the judgement to come
I'm not expecting it to be ok
But I'll still stay and try not to drift away

I just waiting, waiting for you to tell me
I'm waiting, waiting for you

And so the time has come
I see it in your eyes, you just want to run
Run away from all of this
You don't want to say it but you must

I just waiting, waiting for you to tell me
I'm waiting, waiting for you
I see it in your eyes, you just want to go
I see it in your face, your speech has gone slow
I hear it in your voice, you're shaking, you're breaking me
I feel it in the air, you're walking away from me

I'm waiting, waiting for you to tell me
I'm just waiting, waiting for you
Track Name: Up In Flames
Why am I here?
What changes from year to year?
And what makes that voice, so hard to hear?
From hot to cold, this time I'm really getting old
And I'm running out of lions gold
And watching the folds

The distance is unchanged
Between me and home just rearranged
All the while there's me to blame
I watch it all go up in flames
I watch it all go up in flames

I wish I knew
How to live and what to do
But instead I'm here without a clue
I want to see it written down
Not fading away, behind the clouds

The distance is unchanged
Between me and home just rearranged
all the while there's me to blame
I watch it all go up in flames
I watch it all go up in flames

It's not, that I can't change myself
It's just that sometimes I need someone else
Every time I think that I'd grown
I realize I can't do it on my own, my own

The distance is unchanged
Between me and home just rearranged
All the while there's me to blame
I watch it all go up in flames
The distance is unchanged
Between me and home just rearranged
I watch it all go up in
Up in flames
Track Name: The Wolves
What happened for this to change so much?
What happened to us to change so much?
I know we're the same people in our own little way
I love you more now than I ever have before

So please, don't be afraid
So please

I hate to see you cry
When I'm not the one who can help
I hate to sit and watch
The wolves tear you limb from limb
I watch you still

I didn't know, that we would change and we would be
In this time and place, you and me
We'll light the candles, close the doors
Separate in our own little world
I'd watch your eyes, all the long miles

I hate to see you cry
When I'm not the one who can help
I hate to sit and watch
The wolves tear you limb from limb
I watch you still

There are things that I miss
But nothing is better than
Being with you
