It's the wave I ride
That won't ever reach the shore
Overwhelmed by the tide
And wanting nothing more tonight
Than to take this time
And make it all mine
It's coming around again
Every now and again sometimes
She says to me
My hand in her way
She approached it sweetly
It's enough when I see that look in her eyes
It's enough for me to paralyze
Whoa, I'm waiting for the breakdown
Well nothing feels good being under the count
Whoa, I'm waiting for the breakdown
The world is ending, Don't you even know?
Well how did evolution get so slow?
The grass don't even grow.
You buy and sell and throw it all away.
And hope it never gets to you too late.
This planet is gonna blow.
Everything is better,
And everything is right.
Mistakes We Knew We Were Making
We made plans to be unbreakable,
Love was all we knew.
No insurance for the unthinkable,
Blindly get us through.
We've been searching for a lifetime,
Short as it may seem.
Riding on the fumes that spark us,
While igniting dreams.
Mistakes we knew we were making.
The sun was barely coming up,
My heart was all but slowing down.
But I could barely make out the sound.
It was my personal symphony.
Striking the chords for only me.
There was a coursing all through my veins.
Another chance to get away, oh!
Until this empty place is filled, I'll keep pretending.

Ready And Waiting To Fall
Drowning just as fast as I can
But don't throw me a line
Don't reach out your hand
Cause I'm on the brink of something beautiful
And I want to sing about it
But I don't know where to begin
Write a letter
But the words don't come out right
Try and explain how nobody can do me like
You don't understand how helpless I can get
Someone Else's Arms
Two days and I've not slept a wink with these thoughts that I've been thinking. This is
The mark I aim to miss (again). You toss and turn, I lie awake. Who knows what I've been
Drinking. Another cheap, meaningless kiss (to give).
From the beginning, dulled down and lost with all it's charm. I just want to wake up,
Wake up in someone's... I just want to wake up. I just want to wake
Up. I just want to wake up. I just want to wake up.
Six days and I can see the same brown eyes in this reflection. Is this man you say I'll
Be (become)? You toss and turn, I lie awake. Into the sand we're sinking. Holding us back
Lately I'm alright
And lately I'm not scared
I've figured out,
That what you do to me feels like
I'm floating on air.
I don't need to know right now
All I know is I believe
In the very thing that got us here
And now I can't leave.
The Sun And The Moon
I cannot say that I was ready for this.
But when worlds collide,
And all that I have is all that I want.
The words seem to flow
And the thoughts they keep running.
And all that I have is yours.
All that I am is yours.
This Is The Countdown
Are you getting tired?
I think we’ve gone, and lost the fire.
But I don’t wanna fight anymore,
I’ve had enough, of this town.
I can see the signs,
And I can read between the lines.
But I don’t know what we were fighting for,
I’m just trying, to breakout.
We're So Far Away
Remembering, every thing about my world and when you came. wondering if the change you'd bring means nothing else would be the same.
Did you know what you were doing?did you know?did you know how you would move me? Well, I don't really think so. but the night came down and swept us away. and the stars, they seemed to paint the most elaborate scene to date.
How could we know? that song, this show. we'd learn so much about ourselves from toledo to tokyo. the words were scribed on every page and now there's books up on our shelves.
Did you know how you would move us? did you know? when the lights came upon us and we saw the everglow. and the moment's magic swept us away. and a young man's dream was almost seen so plain.
When was the night that showed us the sign? revealed in the sky to leave all behind. but where to begin? throwing caution to the wind, we reached for the stars. everthing was now ours.
