Track Name: New Life
What i know, what if you knew what i know
the secrets out before displayed in show windows
keep keeping up my hopes there's no holes
allowing light to shine when only shadows grow

there is no connection don't be shallow
the rising waters beg for light like shadows
can't help but sit here talk for hours
the worst part's knowing only drowning hovers - lighting showers

new life, i'm seeing in new light
no longer is dead the night
hunger's making it so i can no longer go
take dreams, make real all your fantasies
taking note of life's mysteries
and the worst part's the first - it no longer works

walking away from this
don't beg me to stay cuz i will
never return - always on the run
now i'm stuck in this new life
Track Name: Elevate
if you want to stay awhile but you’re 
begging for a break
baby please don’t hesitate and stay
i might be the first to be the last to exclaimate
babe giver me a chance ill show the way

been around the block before
was never quite this sure
now the time seems stopped
every moment wanting more
okay
now it’s off my chest i fell i dropped

can’t you recognize know you’re not blind
i’m yours to take
i love you let’s get up and out this place

i won’t compromise this time
refuse to toe the line
it must be the real we can’t define
and nothing else we’ll take

i want you to want to stay awhile in my embrace
don’t leave me - but baby don’t you tease me
don’t you deceive me
just stay and we’ll be great
stay and we’ll elevate
just stay and i’ll love you always
Track Name: New Skin
yesterday - not so great
the past keeps pouring into present tense
that’s not me, that’s not me!
anymore, anyway.
don’t swallow so the medicine’s won’t take
this is me, what do you need?

don’t wait for the day, for life to take its shape
please don’t go away

a cause for grief
the apathy apparent in your speech
it’s not everyday - affects me this way
please have mercy on me
the arrows gone and cut me down to size
should be no surprise cuz this is your life, your life
this is my life

don’t wait for the day, for life to take its shape
please don’t go away

let me begin, i’ll shed old skin
let new days begin
let’s take a ride, up life’s sky-rise
retire in the sky
Track Name: No Other
been left in the dust - leaves me
stuck in a rut
baby, please dig me up
i’m so done with being a bust

“soon enough” leaves
so much to trust
being, somewhat a must
maybe ill be too much
no way - this is sane

this is love
there’s won’t be another
cool comforting sounds will smother
every doubt, every bout that comes our way

been caught up in past demons
of with which have zero meaning
i beg let them stay as a yesterday

this is love
there’s won’t be another
cool comforting sounds will smother
every doubt, every bout that comes our way

give us time and we’ll soon uncover
your light stokes the stars we sleep under
let this be oh baby please!

i told you from the very first time
since this is love i want you in my life i’m gonna lie
well you’d never believe me
when i said this isn’t a dream

this is love
there’s won’t be another
cool comforting sounds will smother
every doubt, every bout that comes our way

give us time and we’ll soon uncover
your light stokes the stars we sleep under
let this be oh baby please!
let this be
Track Name: damn you (no - damn me)
how long before i beat myself to death?
the sweetest dreams cannot pretend to kill unrest

mind’s shaking
a lifetime worth waiting itching for a break
take pride in your powers
you me and the our’s
and melt shame down the drain

shut down ill never speak another word
found solid ground up on my feet no longer hovering above the earth

mind’s shaking
a lifetime worth waiting aching for a break
take pride in your powers
you me and the our’s
and flush shame down the drain

i’m not about to be blindsided
Track Name: The Change
when living just seems right
cut out all the little lies
found meaning in your life
getting better all the time
standing up and showing fight

i’ll make the change for you

you kiss my little cuts
make the damage turn to dust
this life’s hard enough when stuck in ruts
why must i be making such a fuss
when your touch just fills me up enough

i’ll make the change for you
believe me ill pull us through
i will remain with you
whenever there’s too much “too”

just call me and say that you’ll stay
we won’t be better if you choose to stray
time will demonstrate how the choices we made
please don’t forget who we are
forget what we said
i feel like you’re feeling your feelings dead

i’ll make the change for you
i will remain with you
Track Name: In Between
tired of the games just to relate
to love is to want make all go away
a moment away hate separating
got no defense make feeling life days

since i've been asking for a lot more laity
oh my god how i’ve changed
caught a feeling - finally a meaning
that to become one is what we’ve now done

while trying to separate all i’ve known
gravity pulled my head to my toes
what good is belief if not for sure?
reality checked in the room is now full

follow the footprints this is elementary
cracked the case now it’s closed
look what i have done
two could’ve become one
tears now melt the sun
afraid to fall and falling’s won

since i found love, nothing fits in between
since i found love, a fine line falls fast asleep
since i found love, nothing fits in between
i’ll fuck this up, a fine line won’t last to see
Track Name: That Ain't Bad
i’m a bit afraid
just take a look while i demonstrate
i’m not making the same mistakes vie made
like taking back promises before they break

ashamed
we never cleaned up the wreckage to drain
all the unspoken words that were never exchanged
i’m naming the blame that’s the way this game’s played

be strong, so long!
i don’t miss you now that you’re gone
it’s too bad and you can bet your ass
i’ve got no sadness and that ain’t bad
so long

this road’s eerie like a picture
i’ve been here before
and whether its with or without you
i walked alone
this constant taunting brings me down
my conscious can only hold so much

be strong, so long!
i don’t miss you now that i’m gone
it’s too bad and you can bet your ass
i’ve got no sadness and that ain’t bad
Track Name: A Life Worthwhile
one big lie
while trying to find peace of mind
done and did split my side

but not the laughing kind
the sort when one falls behind
and fails to live a life worthwhile

so what's with the fuss?
it's only mind games and such
and rearranging i must make or bust

when i've died (i'm good as gone)
can only hope left behind
a legacy not to be denied

one big life
hypocrisies far and wide
i'd rather live and look better behind
