Track Name: Lost
Walking through these streets again,
I don't know where to go,
The sands of time are calling me
Back to what I know

Which direction should I take
North, east, south or west,
If only I could turn to you,
you always know best

Something I should tell you
Something you should know
Never doubt my feelings
I won't let them go

Dice is rolled it has begun,
I have no coin to place
I have no where else to run
No shadow without sun..

Something I should tell you
Something you should know
Never doubt my feelings
I won't let them go

Never doubt my feelings,
I won't let them go,
I will always love you
I won't let it show..
Track Name: Mixed Emotions
I can't explain exactly what I'm feeling,
It's not the same anymore,
Everyday is an uphill struggle,
thinking I'm so close,
but yet so far away,

Chorus:
I can't help from feeling this way,
It's driving me insane,
but there might be a way,
to get beyond, to get beyond,
to get beyond these mixed emotions

Every time I pull a smile,
for every time I shed a tear, it confuses me
For every time I get annoyed,
For every time I get bemused, it confuses me

Chorus:

I fight an inconceivable battle
I can never win,
there's no point in even trying
You don't like me, the way I like you

Chorus:
Track Name: " You Gave me Life"
Tell me your story,
what lies behind those eyes,
I'll Form no opinions and I'll, fear no surprise,
We all carry are secrets,
We all hide our lies,
It's how we confront them is our,
strength or demise


I know we've only met just a short time ago,
but I already feel that your the one
What comes as a great surprise is the look in your eyes
cause I've a feeling you already know

We'll be together,
I won't ever let you go,
I give you my word,
I give you my soul
as you gave me life

We'll have hard times ahead but I want you to know
I'll always be standing by your side,
I won't regret my words and I'll never look back,
cause I'll always be standing there with pride,

We'll be together,
I won't ever let you go
I give you my word
I give you my soul
As you gave me Life
Track Name: "City Lights"
I look down at the city,
feel the streets expose a breeze,
as the lights light up a darkened evening,
I see a sparkle in their eyes

Now I know,
Beauty lies within,
Now I know,
I've found the peace within

Sun shines down upon awakening,
stirs my restless soul,
shadowing all diversities,
each becomes a whole

Now I know,
Beauty lies within,
now I know
I've found the peace within

I ever so slowly walk away,
scared to turn my face,
as pictures can last forever,
though perception seems to change.

Now I know,
beauty lies within,
now I know,
I've found the peace within
Track Name: "Knocking at my Door"
Every time I walk with you,
I just get that feeling,
When I look you in the eyes,
I wanna crumble.

I wanna tell you,
Exactly what I'm feeling,
that I long to have you constantly
just knocking at my door.

Every time you smile it drives me crazy,
I just wanna make you laugh,
everytime I do it's just like lightening,
running through my mind.

I wanna tell you,
exactly what I'm feeling,
That I long to have you constantly just
knocking at my door
Track Name: " Where do we go from Here"
You sneak up on me by surprise,
and my heart it skips a beat,
You look up with playful eyes,
It nearly knocks me off my feet.

Where do we go from here,
Where do we go from Here

You walk past me in the street,
I smile at you you smile at me,
You walk away and I look back,
Thinking of what I should have said.

Where do we go from here,
Where do we go from here.

Now that I've shown you just how I feel,
Show me your love for me is real.
Now that I've shown you just how I feel,
Show me your love for me is real.

Where do we go from here,
where do we go from her.
Track Name: "Wait & See"
I look out my window and what do I see,
It's getting dark it looks like rain,
Then you come knocking at my door,
and the clouds they fade away, they fade away...

Why don't you just stay a while,
You know that you just make me smile,
Why don't you spend the night with me,
Wait & See...

I look out my door and what do I see,
Your walking the street, you wave at me.
I call you over and you come on in,
you help yourself in,
come on in..

Why don't you stay a while,
you know that you just make me smile.
Why don't you just spend the night with me
Wait & see...

repeat..
Track Name: "Free"
Sitting waiting for the phone to ring,
but that phone call never comes.
As I sit here thinking to myself,
of all the things you've done.

I'm in awe of what you showed me, I could't ask for more,
you gave me strength and took my weakness, made me stronger than before,
Now I'm drowning in the shadows,
you made me realize..
Standing looking down at all these faces,
for the one I recognize,
And as I stand here thinking to myself,
That that face cannot be found.

I'm in awe of what you showed me, I couldn't ask for more,
You gave me strength, you took my weakness made me stronger than before,
now I'm drowning in the shadows, you made me realize...

Lying, thinking back to times we had,
Not all of it was fun,
as I lie here thinking too myself,
there was never damage done..

I'm in awe of what you showed me, I couldn't ask for more,
You gave me strength, you took my weakness, made me stronger than before,
Now I'm drowning in the shadows, you made me realize,

I'm in awe of what you showed me, I couldn't ask for more,
you gave me strength you took my weakness, made me stronger than before,
Now I'm drowning in the shadows, you made me realize...

I am free....
you are free....

I'm in awe of what you showed me, I couldn't ask for more,
you gave me strength, you took my weakness, made me stronger than before,
now I'm drowning in the shadows,
you made me realize, you made me realize,

you are free...
you are free...
Track Name: "What have I done"
Lying on my bed,
my own little world,
watching as time goes by,
asking myself why..

What have I done,
What have I said to make you cry,
No I din't mean for to hurt you,
no I didn't mean to cause you pain,
So please forgive me..
for anything I've done wrong
So please forgive me..
I'm used to you in my life..

What have I done....

Thinking back to the tragic day,
hoping to hell I'd be able to stay,
looking into your tear filled eyes,
watching as I wave goodbye..

What have I done,
What have I said to make you cry,
No I didn't mean for to hurt you,
no I didn't mean to cause you pain,
so please forgive me..
for anything I've done wrong..
so please forgive me
I'm used to you in my life...

What have I done..

Lying on my bed,
my own little world,
watching the passerby,
asking myself why... why...

What have I done,
What have I said to make you cry,
no I didn't mewan for to hurt you,
no I didn't mean to cause you pain,
so please forgive me,
for anything I've done wrong,
so please forgive me,
I'm used to you in my life..
What have I done..
Track Name: "Stop Saying your Sorry"
Never mind how you cried on my shoulder, that's ok, I understand..
Just one of those days where you want to be by yourself, that's ok, I understand..

Stop saying your sorry, nothing you have done to do me wrong, I know how you feel,
Stop saying your sorry, there's nothing you have done to do me harm, I know where you coming from.. stop saying your sorry...

You say, will you refill my glass and that's ok.. I understand.
You say.. make that one my last and that's ok.. I undeerstand...

Stop saying your sorry.. nothing you have done to do me wrong.. I know how you feel..
Stop saying your sorry there's nothing you have done to do me harm.. I know where your coming from..
stop saying your sorry...

ok so I got a little drunk and that's ok.. you'll understand...
ok.. so I talked a little bullshit that's ok.. you'll understand..

I won't say I'm sorry.. nothing I have done to do you wrong.. you know how I feel..
I won't say I'm sorry, nothing I have done to do you wrong.. you know where I'm coming from...
I won't say I'm sorry...
