Track Name: Burn
Oh, where's that fire in your eyes?
Can you see it mine, can you see it?
Oh, it's like you've never even tried
Never even been untied from this life you've been living
If I throw you this rope, will you promise to hold extra tight and just go?
Run away with your dream, steal this rope and run away

You hold the match, just light the flame, make the sparks fly today
You hold the match, just light the flame, make the sparks fly today
Set your world afire and burn, burn

Now is your time don't deny that you are falling behind..you are falling behind
How do you think you'll get by?
You can't live on just lies
If you want to get out, you must fly

You hold the match, just light the flame, make the sparks fly today
You hold the match, just light the flame, make the sparks fly today
Set your world afire and burn, burn
Track Name: Hey, Mr. Paul
Hey, Mr. Paul, Mr. Paul
Hey, Mr. Paul, Mr. Paul
Do you remember my name?

Catch me if you can
Call me all but a man
Spite me if you will
Cause' I will fill your mind with all these images

Hey, Mr. Paul, Mr. Paul
Hey, Mr. Paul, Mr. Paul
Do you remember my name?
Hey, Mr. Paul, Mr. Paul
Hey, Mr. Paul, Mr. Paul
Do we all have the same face?

Did I ever have a chance?
Was I doomed on first glance?
Mock me if you will but know that
I'll just be one of the many to come

Hey, Mr. Paul, Mr. Paul
Hey, Mr. Paul, Mr. Paul
Do you remember my name?
Hey, Mr. Paul, Mr. Paul
Hey, Mr. Paul, Mr. Paul
Do we all have the same face?
Track Name: Miss You
I've been countin' the days since I last saw your face, oh it's been so long
I've been countin the days since I last saw your face, oh it's been so long
But this is the only thing I still can find myself writing about
And writing is the only thing that can keep me from crying out loud

Cause' I miss you like hell oh I miss you

I've been countin' the days since our love went away, oh it's been so long
I've been countin' the ways that I've been left and betrayed of this feels so wrong
Oh this just keeps happening, what have I done to deserve all this shame?
But I couldn't be more wrong to think that I shouldn't take a piece of the blame

Cause' I miss you like hell oh I miss you

Cause' I miss you like hell

I miss you always, miss you for days on end
Miss you guiltily
I miss that feeling that you always gave me
Miss you painfully
Track Name: As We Were
We’ll never be the same as we used to be, we’ll never be the same
We will never be the same as we used to be, we’ll never be the same
You will never be the same as you used to be, you’ll never be the one that i die for, I'd die for, I'd die for you

Now if this were all up to me
Now if this were my turn to speak
Now if this were all up to me, i could never go back to you
No, no

As we were, as we were, as we were

I’ll never be the same as i used to be, i’ll never be the same
I will never be the same as i used to be, i’ll never be that weak
We’ll never be the same as we used to be, we'll never be again, again, again

Now if this were all up to me
Now if this were my turn to speak
Now if this were all up to me, i could never go back to..

As we were, as we were, as we were

Do you even remember it anymore?
Do you even remember us anymore?
Us anymore?
Track Name: Feed
Bring on the chills
'Cause i need them to keep feedin’

Feedin’ my soul

Play me something can walk to
Play me something i can feel
Play me something i can walk to
‘Cause i need it just to heal this
Cause’ i need them to keep feedin’

Feedin’ my soul
Track Name: Fine
I know you’re fine
I know you'll find him
I know you’re fine
I know you'll find him

Oh i can't help to think if you still ask
Oh i can't help to wonder if you still care

I'm not so sure
I'm not so sure i'll find her
I'm not so sure
I'm not so sure i'm fine

Oh i can't help to think
Oh i can't help but wonder
I can't be helped
I'm going under
Track Name: Happy Birthday
He and her and she and him will all, walking through the halls today, wish you happy birthday
But I, so many miles away, have nothing left to say, not even on this day.

Happy birthday, love, happy birthday
You will not hear from me today but happy birthday

Two years ago today i said it all, all that I could offer, all that you wanted to hear
But last year i did not say a thing, I could not bare to speak to you, not even on that day

Happy birthday, love, happy birthdayYou will not hear from me today but happy birthday
Track Name: Out On My Own
I'm out on my own, out on a whim, no one to guide me
Swollen, i cringe at the pure thought of socializing
I can not endure this wave of nervous inhibition
I am drowning in all these warning calls
I haven't a clue where to start

So tell me your favorite story, tell me of your favorite place
Tell me your favorite story, baby
Cause’ i suppose that's what i'm supposed to ask

Out on my own, out on my own

I'm out on my own, out in this mess no love to shield me
from all these insecurities i've hid so long beneath me
I cannot endure this wave of hopeless paranoia, I am drowning

Out on my own, out on my own

So tell me your favorite story
Tell me of your favorite place
Tell me your favorite story, baby
Cause’ i suppose that’s what i'm supposed to ask
Track Name: Sweet Dreams
Whisper gently into my ear
Whisper gently, tell me you're still here
Whisper gently into my ear
Just whisper, to me.

You're still here, with me.

Lay here with me for awhile
Just lay here for awhile
Sleep here with me for awhile
Just sleep here, with me

You're still here, with me
You're still here
Track Name: It All Comes Back
I saw a light, i saw a light, i saw a light on, i saw your light on tonight
I passed as fast as i could glance, oh i had to pass that old place once more
I sucked my pride, hid in the night, oh i would fold at the pure sight of you I told myself it'd be the last time..oh this has to be the last time I,
Be the last time that i pass you by, i pass you by.

It all comes back. It moves so fast

You felt so close, you felt so close, you felt so close but i felt so far from you
I won't be back, i won't be back, i can’t be back to that place or i'll lose it Though you won't know where i will go, i will go as far as i can make myself
I've told myself it'd be the last time, oh this has to be the last time
Be the last time that i pass you by, i pass you by

It all comes back. It moves so fast

[we fell, and loved, and lived, and crashed. Around, around, again and back. And all we hid and never said, it all exists, it all comes back]

It all comes back. It moves so fast
Track Name: P.S.
I, i'm not the same
I am not supposed to sound this way
But without you in my head, without you in my bed
Without your heavy presence, i am dead
I’m not the same
