Track Name: Maybe
I look to myself to find the answers, but there’s nothing inside
The sun has set and I’m left as the evening sea subsides.
The lightness reflects the darkness that sent me into hiding
And my heart swells up with the emptiness that makes it harder.

The anchor’s in place
Nothing here is safe
There’s nothing left to chase now.

Maybe I will live to find another dream inside my mind
And if I could see through someones eyes besides mine, I’d be all right.
Maybe it’s not anything that I can do
Or maybe it’s something that’s more than me and you
Or maybe it’s something that I should have said
Or maybe it’s something that I will never get right.

I look to the sky to find protection, but the rain clouds my mind
And the morning comes and I am numb and there’s nothing left to hide.
You can’t forget the defining moments in your life
And the art in your eyes, will never be anything that I like.

The anchor’s in place
Nothing here is safe
There’s nothing left to chase now.

Maybe I will live to find another dream inside my mind
And if I could see through someones eyes besides mine, I’d be all right.
Maybe it’s not anything that I can do
Or maybe it’s something that’s more than me and you
Or maybe it’s something that I should have said
Or maybe it’s something that I will never get right
Right, I'll be alright, I’m fine, fine, I’ll be alright, I’m fine.
Track Name: When I Could
I believe in memories and the dreams that are in my heart
And you can say that everything is better from afar.
But when you listen to yourself, you find out what it is that you want,
And I know it will be okay.

Will I ever see you again? ‘Cause I’m stuck here, remembering
And I can’t find anything to hold on to
And I think about the things that were said, and I know we all have regrets
I tried every day to let you know when I could.

I believe in doing what you choose and how to make your mark
And people say with anything that you won’t know unless you start.
Would you listen to yourself, you’ll find out what it is that you want
I know it will be okay.

Will I ever see you again? ‘Cause I’m stuck here, remembering
And I can’t find anything to hold on to.
And I think about the things that were said, and I know we all have regrets
I tried every day to let you know when I could.

Life can go round and round again
And you don’t know until it ends
And everything happens for a reason, you say.

Will I ever see you again? ‘Cause I’m stuck here, remembering
And I can’t find anything to hold on to.
And I think about the things that were said, and I know we all have regrets
I tried every day to let you know when I could.
Track Name: What We Were
I’ve been working from 9 to 5 now, some days I work until 10.
And I don’t know what I’m gonna do if I have to go through a day like this again
I got my Johnny on the counter, it’s been helping me here for weeks.
You can always find me in the dark out back ‘cause I always go there just to think
About us and what we were, I think about us, when it was.

So maybe tomorrow I’ll go walking in the rain
‘Cause I don’t need somebody to tell me it’s okay.
And if love is nothing more than a word we said
I will always think of you, anyways, anyway.

I know it’s not forever, at least that’s what I said
And I really thought that it was true, but all this time has seemed to pass.
You started looking to another, to get you through the weeks
But you can still find me in the dark out back, ‘cause I always go there just to think
About us, and what we were, I think about us, when it was.

So maybe tomorrow I’ll go walking in the rain
‘Cause I don’t need somebody to tell me it’s okay.
And if love is nothing more than a word we said
I will always think of you, anyways, anyway.

Thinking about what we were, whatever it was
Track Name: Let It Go
Sometimes I think of my dreams

and I get caught up in the things I want to be

and sometimes I need to step back

and let these things up on my head roll off my back.


So meet me on the corner in 10

and we can walk on through those city streets again.

Meet me on the corner in 10

and we can walk on through those winding roads again.



‘Cause in my life there’s wrong and right

seasons change and time goes by

and there were nights we all realized

the way we lived was not real life.

But who am I to remember

I need to know, I need to know for sure

maybe I should surrender,

just let it go for good.


Sometimes I think that it’s me

‘Cause no one out there sees the things I dream.

And sometimes I think it won’t last

I don’t want to lose the things I know I won’t get back.


So I go to that corner at 10 and I hope that I can find my way again.

I go to that corner at 10 but I know it will never be the same again.


‘Cause in my life there’s wrong and right,
seasons change and time goes by.
And there were nights we all realized
the way we lived was not real life.


But who am I to remember?

I need to know, I need to know for sure.

Maybe I should surrender,

just let it go for good.



Lying in the dark one night I tried to find my way back

But I lost myself inside those streets,
I never thought I’d say it

Can you help me now,
am I too far gone, do you think I’m gonna make it back home?

I don’t know, but I hope, but I don’t know.

Track Name: It Takes Time
I was making my way to the New York line,
Trying to forget what I left behind.
When there are too many things that are on your mind
You know what you know and you don’t ask why.
‘Cause it takes time, time, time, it takes time to get it right.

There are all these places I’ve called home,
Many of them I don’t think of no more
And there are all these people that I once knew
And I didn’t know what to say when I saw you, no

It just takes time, time, time, time. It takes time to let them know.

‘Cause it’s love we should be living for, you never know ‘till its gone for good.
And it’s life we should be living more, we can’t keep go on going as we were.

After everyone has come and gone, and I think about you as I head home,
I hope you know that you’re not alone.
Next time I won’t let it take so long.
Track Name: By My Side
Every time, I look to you
When I don’t know what to do
And I hope, that you know

When I’m thinking about what could have been
When I’m thinking about everything
And I know, that I don’t

When the world around me seems to change
When it does those things we can’t explain
You always keep me going.

When I’m stuck inside that same old place,
You see that look on my face
When I just can’t let it go

That’s when you say you love me again
And that you’re on my side
And I’ll be alright.
Tell me again, that there’s no place I should hide
When you’re by my side.

With everything that I go through
Every time you go there too
And I know it gets hard

You can hear the sound of my voice
From a room away, change its course,
You know, when something’s wrong.

Life finds a way to take its toll
We all have nights we feel alone
But please, don’t let go.

We’ll take each day as it comes
The road is long, we’ve just begun.
I’ll always look to you.

That’s when you say you love me again.
And that you’re on my side,
And I’ll be alright.
Tell me again, that there’s no place I should hide
When you’re by my side.

With this love you’ve given me, more and more each day,
I find a way, to make it through the day (today)
With this love I’m giving you, more and more each day,
I hope you always find a way to stay.
Track Name: Untitled
When you went away, I never lost your face.
They tell me time will heal, but I’m still about to break
And you don’t seem to care, maybe I care too much
But I was counting down the days until I could see you again.

So what do you do when you’re all alone in life?
There’s nobody out there to make you feel alright
And time keeps slowly slipping away, it’s moving to slow
And I can’t wait for you.

It’s hard to let you go, but why should I wait?
It’s like you don’t even know that I was waiting here
Maybe it’s just me and I worry way too much
And I can’t change my mind cause I don’t need this.

So what do you do when you’re all alone in life?
There’s nobody out there to make you feel alright
And time keeps slowly slipping away, it’s moving too slow
And I can’t wait for you.
Track Name: Life Goes Around
Love is not a game you should play with anymore
Because it came and it went, and now you’re left like before.
Every time you say its okay, move along
But you’re in a place, you see a face, you think of her, and it’s gone.

Would you let me in, if only for the night?
You can tell me again, everything that’s going through your mind.

‘Cause life goes around, goes around and around
And sometimes it will get you down
And I should know, and you should know by now,
We’re never ever gonna give up, we’re gonna make it out.

Life is not a game we can play with anymore
‘Cause in a day, it can change, and leave you left on the floor.
And everyone has said, it’s not the same, we’ve heard before
Either way, I’m gonna say that I love you, even more.

Would you let me in, if only for the night?
You can tell me again, everything that’s going through your mind

‘Cause life goes around, goes around and around
And sometimes it will get you down
And I should know, and you should know by now,
We’re never ever gonna give up, we’re gonna make it out.
Track Name: Make It All The Same
Take a walk on down the road
Where I’m going I’ll never know
Maybe tomorrow we can go.

Somewhere across the midnight sky
I look at the stars, the city lights
So far away from what’s felt right

So I breathe, ‘cause I know that we made it okay
And tomorrow will bring a new day
And some things will never change.

And everything’s lost from way up here
We walk for miles to disappear.
But how do we find our way back there?

Staring down the world below
There are too many things I still don’t know.
Don’t think I’ll ever let them go, just let them go.

And I breathe, ‘cause I know that we made it okay
And tomorrow will bring a new day
And some things will never change.

And even if you don’t think of me, I’m thinking about you
And every time it pulls at me, does it pull the same at you, too?
Every time I go away there’s the thought of some place
But I know I’m not that far away far away far away from you
Far away far away far away from you
Track Name: Tonight
Tonight just lay here with me, we don’t have to sleep.
Let’s talk all night and leave everything behind
And I feel you next to me, like the wind blowing in the trees
That sound puts me at ease.

And it’s not that I’m afraid, I just want to stay
And lie here next to you, please don’t make me move.
And you were there for me, and I was there for you
And I’ll stay until you sleep, I’ll be the one to watch over you,
Tonight.

And I’m trying to leave, as you lay next to me
And I’m trying to be quiet, so I can let you be
And I walk home in the dark, I take the path near the water
And now you’re far away, don’t worry, I’ll be okay.

And it’s not that I’m afraid, I just want to stay
And lie here next to you, please don’t make me move.
And you were there for me, and I was there for you
And I’ll stay until you sleep, I’ll be the one to watch over you,
Tonight.

Tonight, just lay here with me, we don’t have to sleep
Let’s talk all night and leave everything behind.
Track Name: Until The End
Every time you look into these eyes, what do you see?
See, I don’t believe that there’s nothing there that shouldn’t be.
And from the other side is a troubled mind in front of me
In a different life, tell me how you wish it would be.

‘Cause love to me, you blow me away
And I wish that you could see

That I can pick you up when you’ve fallen down
When you need help from a friend
When you’re too far gone and you don’t know how
I’m going to be there with you until the end.

Every time we talk, I don’t know how or what to say
And I don’t know why, sometimes life has to be this way.
But I’m here tonight, here tomorrow, here every day
So dry those eyes, I promise it will be okay.

‘Cause love to me, you blow me away
And I wish that you could see

That I can pick you up, when you’ve fallen down
When you need help from a friend
When you’re too far gone and you don’t know how
I’m gonna be there with you until the end.
