Mantra Song 05:22
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

Rescue 03:24
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

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

Burn 03:16
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

Still Here 03:52
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…

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

Blackbird 02:02
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

I Never Said 03:42
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

This Life 03:43
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

So Close 04:58

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
