Track Name: Mantra Song
We wait for days that may never come around
We run for miles but are we making ground
We only see what we choose to
There always will be love surrounding you

It's clear as the water raining from above
As soft as the mantra song
As clear as the water raining from above
As soft as the mantra song

We make our plans and life will play its games
We take our chances before they slip away
We only believe what we choose to
There always will be that shine within you

It's clear as the water raining from above
As soft as the mantra song
As pure as the water raining from above
As soft as the mantra song

We live, we learn
We laugh, we cry
We rise and fall
In this one life
We give, we take
We build and break
We fall and rise
In this one life
Track Name: Rescue
Can you see me now
Hanging on by a thread

Are you coming to my rescue
Will you be the one to save me
Are you coming to my rescue
Are you... Are you gonna save me

Can you hear me now
Hanging on by a thread

Are you coming to my rescue
Will you be the one to save me
Are you coming to my rescue
Are you...

Are you gonna save me
Are you gonna save me
Are you gonna save me
Will you be there waiting

Are you coming to my rescue
Will you be the one to save me
Are you coming to my rescue
Will you be the one to break me
Are you coming to my rescue
Are you... Are you gonna save me
Track Name: The Truth is Out
So begins a new day
The truth is out
The truth is out
So begins a new life
It’s all for you
It’s all for you

Are you strong enough to hold together
Is it real enough this time around
The truth is out

So we learn the hard way
Let it in
Let it go
So begins your new life
It’s all for you
It’s all for you

Are you strong enough to hold together
Is it real enough this time around
The truth is out

We will see what tomorrow brings
Unraveling somehow
What will be begins with a dream
Remember be here now
The jury’s in, the truth is out

Are you strong enough to hold together
Is it real enough this time around
Are you big enough to face the mirror
Have you seen enough this time around
The truth is out

So begins your new life
It’s all for you
It’s all for you
Track Name: Burn
I said goodnight but I couldn’t sleep
All I could think about was you
I said goodbye but I couldn’t leave
All I wanted was truth

Now all I can do is hope
That you know how I feel about you
All I can do is watch our bridges burn

We took a ride
And somehow we crashed
I still remember the flash
I took advice
Turns out was bad
All I want is to come clean

Now all I can do is hope
That you know how I feel about you
All I can do is watch...
Yeah all I can do is hope
That you know how I really feel
All I can do is watch our bridges burn
Track Name: Still Here
Would you kiss me now that I’m gone
Would you miss me if I was still here
Would you kiss me now that I’m gone
Would you miss me if I was still here

The strangest thing is happening now that I’ve let go
A beautiful unravelling of everything I’ve known
It doesn’t need to be complicated anymore
No it doesn’t need to be…

Would you kiss me now that I’m gone
Would you miss me if I was still here

A familiar thing is happening playing out for the first time
I’m at the shore of forgiveness, staring up through the water
The wind is howling overhead but I can’t hear a thing
The trees are bending, the leaves are waving at me

Would you kiss me now that I’m gone
Would you miss me if I was still here
Would you kiss me now that I’m gone
Would you miss me if I was still here

Still here…
Track Name: Are You Happy
Out of nowhere you arrived
So beautiful, full of life... oh yeah

Are you happy, like a bird sings
Are you happy now

We had something more than a spark
So beautiful now it’s dark... oh well

Are you happy, like a bird sings
Are you happy now

It’s alright I don’t know you anymore
It’s alright I don’t owe you anymore

We had something more than a spark
So beautiful now it’s dark... oh well

Are you happy, like a bird sings
Are you happy, like a bird sings
Are you happy now
Track Name: Blackbird
Blackbird singing in the dead of night

Take these broken wings and learn to fly

All your life

You were only waiting for this moment to arise

Blackbird singing in the dead of night

Take these sunken eyes and learn to see

All your life

You were only waiting for this moment to be free

Blackbird fly...

Blackbird fly… 
Into the light of the dark black night

Blackbird singing in the dead of night

Take these broken wings and learn to fly

All your life

You were only waiting for this moment to arise

Blackbird fly…

Blackbird fly… 
Into the light of the dark black night
Track Name: I Never Said
I never said that I was perfect
Even though I just did

I never said that you were special
Even though I just did

I never said I wanted to hurt you
Even though I just did

I never said I wanted to lose you
Even though I just did

In the spaces there are places we never go
In there lie traces of all the things I never said

I never said I wanted to hurt you
Even though I just did

I never said I wanted to lose you
Even though I just did
Track Name: This Life
There’s something you can say
To make this feeling fade away
There’s I can do
But I’m terrified to see it through

I want to live this life
I want to live this life
I want to live this life... now

There’s something you can say
To make this feeling drift away
There’s I should do
But I’m terrified to see it through

I want to live this life
I want to live this life
I want to live this life... now
Track Name: Beautiful Day
The heart is a bloom
Shoots up through the stony ground
But there's no room
No space to rent in this town
You're out of luck
And the reason that you had to care
The traffic is stuck
And you're not moving anywhere
You thought you'd found a friend
To take you out of this place
Someone you could lend a hand
In return for grace

It's a beautiful day
Sky falls, you feel like
It's a beautiful day
Don't let it get away

You're on the road
But you've got no destination
You're in the mud
In the maze of her imagination
You love this town
Even if that doesn't ring true
You've been all over
And it's been all over you

It's a beautiful day
Don't let it get away
It's a beautiful day

Touch me
Take me to that other place
Teach me love
I know I'm not a hopeless case

What you don't have you don't need it now
What you don't know you can feel it somehow
What you don't have you don't need it now
Don't need it now

It’s a beautiful day
It’s a beautiful day
