Track Name: Who Follows You
And I think the enemy
is the one who follows me...

I stare at my ceiling

and wish that i could sleep

but i cant shake the feeling

theres someone who follows me

and its there in the air in my chest as i breathe

and sometimes it takes over me

I stare out my window

and look out on the street

at the kids playing kickball

remember that was me

normal lives say goodbye cause its not that for me

and sometimes it takes over me

[prechorus]

so bring on the rain,
we both know what happens till i sleep

and the world fades away~

[chorus]

I cant breathe now baby, maybe I need help to save me
on my own can't take it, I need her arms to make it

and I think the enemy
is the one who follows me

I stare at my mirror
and wonder if its me
who brings me nearer
and closer to defeat
and i will, will myself but i guarantee
that sometimes it takes more than me

[prechorus]

[chorus]
I cant breathe now baby, maybe I need help to save me
on my own can't take it I need her arms to make it
take me home im lost here lets get alone and nowhere
lets go down and away maybe they'll find us some day

I can lie to myself
and say that youre all that I need
‘you're all i need in the world’
instead of fixing myself
you can fix it for me
all that i need, you're all that i need
and i know I'm naive
but youre all that i need
and each place that i leave
its the same shit to me

and I think the enemy
is the one who follows me

I cant breathe now baby, maybe I need help to save me
on my own can't take it I need her arms to make it
take me home im lost here lets get alone and nowhere
lets go down and away maybe they'll find us some day
Track Name: Marianne
Marianne...
you just sit there and stare at your thread
why don’t you use it instead?
why don’t you make something
meaningful and wonderful and
beautiful just like Marianne,

Beautiful Marianne
don’t you feel theres something in the air?
don’t you feel theres something so
frightening yet wonderful
inspiring for us to share

keep this blanket as my home
cause it warms me to the bone

and I'll show you everything
about me there is to know
and I'll take this heart away
cross the mountains and to your home


Marianne...
Don't you know you're my best friend?
Don't you know I'll love you till the end?
Don't you know I'll love you
till the end of our lives
and probably some time
after that

Beautiful Marianne
Why don't you take my hand?
I'll take you anywhere
You wanna go do the things you wanna do
All for you

keep this blanket as my home cause it warms me to the bone

and I'll show you everything
about me there is to know
and I'll take this heart away
cross the mountains and to your home
Marianne you fragile thing take the quilt and stitch and
sew this new love a place for me, you and I for-ever more
Track Name: Runaway I
2 am thinking about you
gone to long here with you
how long has it been

cant fall asleep
nothing i can do
and i think it be true
it might be…

awhile
before I see
I see your smile
so I’ll
call you up and say
‘hey,
are you awake?’….

cause I need those eyes
when they meet my gaze
with a blue sunrise
to start all my days

it's 3 am and I cant stay
I think I have to runaway
I open the door and I step outside

into the night
I watch the stars
theyre in your eyes
like all these city lights

and I walk
to meet you
at the corner store
I wait
to greet you
and say
‘I'm glad you came’

cause I need those eyes
when they meet my gaze
with a blue sunrise
to start all my days
we can change our minds
we can runaway
or stay right here, babe
but I'm glad you came

we can run away…

5 am, sipping coffee
we watched the sunrise
over the city
and I'm still thinking about you
it's good to see you
how long has it been?
Track Name: Lion's Den
[Verse 1]
You may think I'm insane
but venus is in flames
so pull back the reigns
and tell me you're okay

Like you'd do for me
I want you to be happy
but this gentle sea
comes crashing around me

[Pre-Chorus]
I don't want this all to end
Im in the lion's den
But id do it all again
Id do this again

[Chorus]
So show me your sorrow
I'll be there tommorow
Wherever that you go
Just go there i'll follow you

[Verse 2]
On this starry night
i cant tell whats wrong and right
Only held back by fright
and blinded by this light

I melt in the breeze
but let go and i'll freeze
a blueberry lipgloss tease
that makes me weak at the knees

[Pre-Chorus]
I don't want this to end
I'm in the lion's den
But id do this again
I'd do this again

[Chorus]
So show me your sorrow
I'll be there tomorrow
Wherever that you go
Just go there i'll follow

So show me your sorrow
I'll be there tomorrow
Wherever that you go
Just go there i'll follow you
Track Name: Take Your Time
I was lightning rod
you were the shock to my system
I dont know what went wrong
but you never showed that this would come

turn on the lights
let's talk through this storm
(I'm) tired of these nights
alone in your arms

[prechorus]
but you turn away
just like everyday

so just take, take, take your time
tell me what is wrong
you break, break, break my heart
when I loved you all along...

This is a hurricane
but you are the calm before the storm
Things might not be the same
but I'll always love you like before

Turn out the lights
Im sick of this game
in my sleep tonight
maybe you'll love me again

[bridge]
but my dreams float on
'cause you proved me wrong

[chorus]
so just take, take, take your time
tell me what is wrong
you break, break, break my heart
when i loved you all along...

and I'll keep trying
to stay strong

[chorus]
so just take, take, take your time
tell me what is wrong
you break, break, break my heart
when i loved you all along...

all these nightmares, i'm waking up
its hard to face this truth alone
you weren't trying all along
you can your time, but i wont take this anymore~

so just take, take, take your time
'cause you've taken way too long
and I'm wake, wake, waking up
wake, wake, waking up
and I'm done trying
yeah I'm done trying
though I've loved you all along

I've loved you all along
Track Name: What Happens
I'm breaking all the rules tonight
Cause I don't know how the time slipped away
I watched as it circled around the drain
Just cause i know it doesn't mean I can change
Just cause i know it doesn't mean I can
change my mind
or wipe these tears
away and all along it was
just what i feared
that i don't have a say
in what happens in my own head
so im running in circles again

Im biting on my tongue tonight
Cause we both know what happened last time, yea
and im only worse off for the wear
is there anyone out there who even cares?
is there anyone out there who even…

is there anyone out there?
who even cares?

I'm breaking all my rules tonight
cause I don't know how the time
I'm biting on my tongue tonight
cause we both know what happens, we both know what happens
I'm breaking all the rules tonight
cause I don't know how the time slips away
I'm biting on my tongue tonight
but we both know what happens, we both know what happens
Track Name: Get it Right
[chorus]
where have you been?
I haven't seen you in a while
but I’ll take you back
cause you change my mind
with those beautiful eyes
and that wonderful smile
so lets do this again
but this time we will get it right

I never thought id see you coming back, yea, running back here
I never thought id get to, take you back I’ll take you back
I didn’t want to see you, crying baby crying those tears
I didn't want you sad but that doesn't mean it'll change my mind

you left here running saying you wanted something more
but I’m always happy to see you knocking at my door

[chorus]

I always missed you babe i wished that i could kiss you once more
I always kicked myself i let those thoughts get the best of me
I thought i messed up and i lost the one thing that i adore
I thought i wouldn’t get a shouldn’t get a second chance

you left here running saying you wanted something more
but I’m always happy to see you knocking at my door

[bridge]
yea I’ll take you back...
after all this time
cause you made your choice
and I didn’t make mine
cause I’m pathetic
and I don’t have a spine
cause you made your choice
now I’ll make mine

This time
This time I’ll get it right
Track Name: The World Fades
it was the last night of a summer gone
we watched the daylight fade and the stars come out
We left the subway so I could walk you home
it was a darkened way I couldn't leave you all alone

as our hands come closer I look down
Constellations light up this sacred ground
And we talk of high school memories
we were young hearts broken up by the breeze
And you tell me maybe we had a chance

but I've moved on now...

but the world fades
around your face
when you hold me
yea its toxic
If it all changed
and I rearranged
but lets not go there
these thoughts are toxic
Yeah, its toxic


It was a winter night with a cloudy sky
I watched the snow fall and the time roll by
I saw your footprints just ahead of me
I Followed closely down the darkened street


Saw you come over and I looked up
oh your face was glowing I was starstruck
So we walked together in the cold breeze
we were young hearts tender but not free
And you tell me maybe we had a chance
But I've moved on now...


so the world fades
around your face
when you hold me
yea its toxic
If it all changed
and I rearranged
but lets not go there
these thoughts are toxic

You loved me then but you tell me now
I loved you then but you tell me now
You loved me then but you tell me now
Now that I've moved on
to…
be brand new…

you- grab my arm and lead me through
and i have the strength to
carry on and on you take me
through the night we were awakened
and. the memories that i had
they were lost in grains of
sand and all the love that i had
pulls me back whenever i see you

And the world fades…
Track Name: Runaway II
hush now
don’t let out a sound
cause I got you now
you think you got it figured out?
well you don’t, babe…
and when the walls come crashing down
you’ll be afraid
yea it seems theres no way out
so just hush now
close your weary eyes
and let me sing
your anti-lullaby

when the cobbled stone street
lays broken at your feet
and the bridges over troubled water
are out hold onto me
it's the fact that we are going
not the paths on which we stay
so if you feel you’re going nowhere
cut your ties and run away

open
your eyes and look around
at this mess you’re in
you got nothing figured out
well you can run away
and watch the world change
as fast your feet can take
you down out and away
so break down
burn your bridges cut your ties
and let me sing
our anti lullaby

when the cobbled stone street
lays broken at your feet
and the bridges over troubled water
are out hold onto me
its the fact that we are going
not the paths on which we stay
so if you feel you’re going nowhere
close your eyes and run away

cause I need those eyes when you meet my gaze
with a blue sunrise to start all my days
we can change our mind we can runaway
or stay right here baby

but im glad you stayed

when the cobbled stone street
lays broken at your feet
and the bridges over troubled water
are out hold onto me
it's the fact that we are going
not the paths on which we stay
so if you feel you’re going nowhere
close your eyes and run away
Track Name: Don't Call Me Tonight
you call him up again
distract him as its sinking in
this end was long coming
and i cant stop it

bittersweet life we live
trapped in an amber prison
this world is sink or swim
i was born underwater

these walls are wearing thin
the roofs are caving in
his knights that hide within are
lost and alone

He has those dreams again
old nightmares and waves of sin
razors might break the skin
but they wont tear the soul

So break
the rules have shown
and take
take me home
i know
that I don't know
oh no
just please, take me
home

The gates are crashing in
the lonely king is giving in
nightmares surrounding him
he falls to the ground

he sits on knees and grins
he's sick, that fuck, wont understand
pills in my shaking hand
its hard to swallow…

So break
the rules have shown
and take
take me home
i know
that i don't know
oh no
these pills will take me
home

You can lie to yourself
and say things are
or make what you say come true
and so don't tell me
it'll be okay
theres nothing you can do,
baby
don't call me up tonight
cause you wont like what you find
and i know you want me by your side
broken hearts inside this fragile mind
but you wont stop waking me up
and i cant when i look in those eyes
come find a way to hold me
dawn after the darkest night

and though i know, cant let this go-o
for sure, as long as you're not here
and even so with your hand in mine
i fall into another night
come find a way to hold me
dawn after the darkest night
cause i have my heart
but i still don't have my mind
Track Name: Amber Prison
Electric blue reflecting dim white lights;
this lonely bus gets me through the dark night
the 
orange glow on the city roads,
empty people in shadowed homes
Seeing hundreds, knowing few; 
I'm just glad that I know you

Whole worlds live outside our mind; 
in the eyes of others a thousand times 
Making marks outside our lives,
only happens with guns and knives

A word: a whisper,
lost the way
never rising
above the fray

I'm stuck in an amber prison, 
frozen in the sweet sap
trying take fact from fiction 
and fiction from fact

I have a rope 
and im holding on tight
but i don't know where it goes 
cause theres no end in sight

I went to the beach 
and must have fallen asleep
cause the tide rolled in 
and now im lost at sea

I walk these streets alone at night
my dark thoughts lifted by the moonlight
it was up to me to make things right
so..
i made them right

You can lie to yourself and say things are,
or make what you say come true.
So I'll tell you, its okay
as long as you think so too
