Track Name: Lay Down
I watched you close your eyes and sleep
another day slips away I watch you leave
and these old things they're just paper wings
and never could take me far away

and who will be my hero now
when you are the villain here

lay down to the river
lay down in my darling's arms
I was never that good at being in love
and I suppose that this is just the way it goes
but why'd it have to hurt so bad

this old love I guess it's done it's part
the fading light the quiet night it breaks my heart
you lay so still and you lied so well
and I watch the morning touch the window sill

and who will be my hero now
when you are the villain here

lay down to the river
lay down in my darling's arms
I was never that good and being in love
and I suppose that this is just the way it goes
but why'd it have to hurt so bad

lay down to the river
(I suppose that this is just the way it goes in love)
lay down to the river
(I suppose that this is just the way it goes in love)
lay down to the river
(I suppose that this is just the way it goes in love)
lay down

lay down to the river
lay down to the river
lay down to the river
lay down
Track Name: Someday
someday yeah I will not reach you
and time will not tell you again
I stayed, just to hear that you loved me
but oh how you hurt me I guess I did love you the same

and so we whisper this pain to the wind
take away what time cannot rid
and love oh won't you go easy on me
I gave all I could give

oh no something is bound to go wrong
yes the night's already done
too long too long I have waited alone
and I waited for none
but don't go oh we can do better than this
I'm broken I'm broken I'm broken and cannot be fixed

and so we whisper this pain to the wind
take away what time cannot rid
and love oh won't you go easy on me
I gave all I could give

oh no something is bound to go wrong
yes the night's already done
too long too long I have waited alone
and I waited for none
But don't go oh we can do better than this
I'm broken I'm broken I'm broken and cannot be fixed

Nothing nothing is wrong
yes the day's just begun
No more no more will I wait here alone
I am already done
But oh no he leaned in for just one last kiss and whispered
I'm broken I'm broken I'm broken and cannot be fixed
Track Name: Moon and the Sun
you're breaking your promises
I'm finding my loneliness
somewhere I left it long ago
and I keep getting caught up on hope
I guess it keeps me afloat
when I am far below

every trouble yesterday had left behind has come again
and I don't know where my love's gone

these days settle in to night time but something is amiss
tell me now what have I done
these nights settle in to morning and was I ever his
or did the moon forget the sun
we just keep going round and round until we find what we have lost

we're just a leaf in the wind
we just got caught on a whim
where will we settle back down
these days arrive and they've got
tears in their eyes
and my heaven is empty now

every trouble yesterday had left behind has come again
and I don't know where my love's gone

these days settle into night time but something is amiss
tell me now what have I done
these nights settle into morning and was I ever his
or did the moon forget the sun
we just keep going round and round until we find what we have lost

you're breaking your promises
I'm finding my loneliness
somewhere I left it long ago
and I keep getting caught up on hope
I guess it keeps me afloat
when I am far below

every trouble yesterday had left behind has come again
and I don't know where my love's gone
Track Name: White Wings
there he is in the deep end of the sea
with no breath to bring him back
with these stones upon his feet and touch the ground

never could I love as much as he
like a whisper in the wind like the truth within the sin
we're never found

oh you love me no more
white wings upon the wind will always break your fall
oh won't you knock on my door
and there will be an answer to your darkest call

oh love you only let me down
took away what mattered most
what you left was not the lover but the ghost

and I want to feel that there is something more
so I reach for what I see just to find
that there is nothing there at all

oh you love me no more
white wings upon the wind will always break this fall
oh won't you knock on my door
and there will be an answer to your darkest call

you'll come back yes you'll come back to me
though these trouble weigh you down
leave these troubles at the bottom of the sea

and I promise you've go some place left to be
where somebody listens in to the whisper of the truth
and not the sin

oh you love me no more
white wings upon the wind will always break your fall
oh won't you knock on my door
and there will be an answer to your darkest call
Track Name: Told Me
said he'd give up all these things,
just to hear that sound of angels wings
oh carry me away from here

and we were just unraveling like sleeves
and falling softly just like leaves
I couldn't find my comfort there

slowly life unfolds
til all your stories have been told
but all the while nobody heard
like a flightless bird we wait for this curse to break

cannot find a shadow in the dark
still we hide behind these walls of glass
and hope this secret's safe

still he's asking why
and still another day arrives
oh do no miss your second chance

I cannot stop the doubt from sinking in
it comes and goes but always wins
oh trouble do not trouble me again

if there's no need for me
then I will gladly take my leave
but I cannot stand the way it burns
but in the wind in the wind we'll turn

cannot find a shadow in the dark
still we hide behind these walls of glass
and hope this secret's
just a shadow in the dark
still we hide behind these walls of glass
and hope we will be found
Track Name: Gone
you've been a long time leaving
you've been a long time gone
I've spent a long time dreaming
and it's been too long

it takes time til time is done
it takes courage but we have none
it takes two but love's not to blame
it takes two but one's just easy

do do do do do do

but why'd you go and have and do a thing like that
don't tell me you are hurting oh it's not that bad
don't cry don't worry i'm not leaving
i'm just gone

You love and lose the only one you had
well why'd you go and do a thing like that
misery needs company they say
how'd I ever let you get away
(how'd I ever let you go)

but why'd you go have to do a thing like that
don't tell me you are hurting on it's not that bad
don't cry don't worry i'm not leaving

but why'd I go and have to do a thing like that
don't say it's hurting it's not that bad
I cried i'm sorry i'm not leaving
I'm just gone
