Track Name: All The Way
Lonely I did lie
And wait for you tonight
Hold your body close
Rest my weary bones

Bound about my hands
While life laughs at my plans
I can find a way
If I can see your face

If nobody waits for tomorrow
And everyone lives for today
Time as it flows in my hollow bones
She takes me all the way

Down upon my knees
Your light it shines on me
Nevermore alone
Come and take me home

Burning in my heart
And you ignite the spark
Aching all the time
To feel your lips on mine

If nobody waits for tomorrow
And everyone lives for today
Time as it flows in my hollow bones
She takes me all the way

Standing at the gate
The hour drawing late
My love I do implore
No waiting anymore

If nobody waits for tomorrow
And everyone lives for today
Time as it flows in my hollow bones
You take me all the way
Track Name: One By One
Four years pass like it was yesterday
I can't take it in, for it was Saturday
Even those times when we sat down and talked
I can't take it in, I need to walk

Forgotten those times when you can't be here
I can't take it in, you must be near
Secretly wishing you could hear myrhymes
I can't take it in, so I stop those lines

Watching the world go by, I question why
Watching the world fly by, I wonder why

Counting the days of diminished years
Can't distinguish the dreams
Thinking of things he used to say and
I know that I'll be saved
One by one

Feeling the prayer from the stars above
I can't take it in, I know it's your love
Holding my breath in he darkest rooms
I can't take it in, it feels so cruel

Watching the world go by, I question why
Watching the world fly by, I wonder why

Counting the days of diminished years
Can't distinguish the dreams
Thinking of things he used to say and
I know that I'll be saved
One by one

Watching the world go by, I question why
Watching the world fly by, I wonder why

Counting the days of diminished years
Can't distinguish the dreams
Thinking of things he used to say and
I know that I'll be saved
One by one
Track Name: These Old Fires
There's a tie that's between you and I
Like a siren that sounds, like a bell that's ringing in the night
Now your hurt put your heart on a shelf
But you gotta let go, there's some things you owe to yourself
There's some things you owe to yourself

I recall all the ways we would sing
But you bartered that gold for a silence like a living thing
If I float all the hopes of my life
Would you scuttle that boat, would you burn it to the waterline?
Would you burn it to the waterline?

But these old fires, they still burn
And this old wheel, how it still turns
The things we lost, the things we learned
But these old fires, they still burn
They burn

Keep the embers aglow in your heart
Stake a place in this world, plant a flag and there we make a start
You could help all my doubts to assuage
Just a look in those eyes and my life would never be the same
And my life would never be the same

But these old fires, they still burn
And this old wheel, how it still turns
The things we lost, the things we learned
But these old fires, they still burn

They still burn
They still burn
They still burn
They still burn

But these old fires, they still burn
And this old wheel, how it still turns
I gave my all, I gave my word
But these old fires, they still
Yeah these old fires, they still

These old fires, they still burn
And this old wheel, how it still turns
The things we lost, the things we learned
But these old fires, they still burn
They burn
Track Name: Every Passing Day
Waiting in line at the railway station
Got a ticket for me and my destination
Everybody seems to think they know the way

Heading for Chicago, written in stone
It's gonna be fine when I get you home
Everybody wants to know if you're okay

And the lights go out on 'Frisco Bay
And the feelings come and they go away
And I'll miss you more with every passing day

Riding with the top down to the West Coast
Discarding the things that we need most
Everybody knows the journey is a race

Carrying the weight that grew in your heart
Since things fell apart in Central Park
Everybody says it's time to walk away

And the lights go out on 'Frisco Bay
And the feelings come and they go away
And I'll miss you more with every passing day

And I thought I had the world at my feet
But I didn't have a clue
And I thought I had all I would need
But I did not have you

Waiting in line at the railway station
Got a suitcase full of our obligations
Everybody wants to be the one to say

Waiting for the wind to carry us home
And hope it's all fine when we are alone
All I want is you to tell me it's okay

And the lights go out on 'Frisco Bay
And the feelings come and they go away
And I'll miss you more with every passing
Miss you more with every passing
Miss you more with every passing day
Track Name: Song About Tomorrow
When I look back I see it clearly
The day I first saw you on your father's arm
But I am a poor man and not nearly
Fit for the daughter of the richest man in town

But we had our love, we had each other
With need of no blessing in our hearts
So we'll run away now to the ocean
Setting our sails straight by the stars

So we sit here in the bow lines
As the light begins to fade
Singing songs about tomorrow
Singing songs of yesterday
If I gave you all my sorrows
Would you carry them away?
My love

So out on the high seas we live freely
Beyond the horizon a fresh start
We'll build a new life here and ideally
Be ever together, not apart

So we sit here in the bow lines
As the light begins to fade
Singing songs about tomorrow
Singing songs of yesterday
If I gave you all my sorrows
Would you carry them away?
My love, my love, my love

Now here on our island, life is dreary
With only each other and our flaws
The sight of your face now makes me weary
If only you'd left me where I was

So we sit here in the bow lines
As the light begins to fade
Singing songs about tomorrow
Singing songs of yesterday
If I gave you all my sorrows
Would you carry them away?
My love, my love, my love, my love

So we sit here in the bow lines
As the light begins to fade
Singing songs about tomorrow
Singing songs of yesterday
If I gave you all my sorrows
Would you carry them away?
My love, my love, my love, my love, my love
Track Name: Goodnight Sun
Rain falls down onto my nose
Dampens my heart to a frown
Sun gleams through the dusty pane
To my eyes it keeps me sane

Goodnight, goodnight sun
Goodnight, goodnight sun

This orange moon I've seen before
Makes me feel very very tall
Sun gleams through the dusty pane
To my eyes it keeps me sane

Goodnight, goodnight sun
Goodnight, goodnight sun

Watch those birds, no care at all
Watch me here until I stall
Watch those birds, no care at all
Watch me here until I stall

Goodnight, goodnight sun
Goodnight, goodnight sun
Goodnight sun
