Track Name: I Will Wait
how long do you need?
however long I understand
Whatever it takes to believe
I will wait in vain if I must

and I will wait til the end of time
and I will wait thousands of years so show me a sign
I need you surrounding me here holding my hand
and I will hold my breathe till I know that you understand
and I promise that I will wait

just outside your door
so let me in and lets begin
to end the pain that's come before
and in-spite of love in-spite of fate
I keep holding on through the lonely day
for without you I have nothing

so here I wait til the end of time
and I will wait thousands of years so show me a sign
I need you surrounding me here holding my hand
and I will hold my breathe till I know that you understand
its a promise that I will wait
I promise I will wait
and I promise that I will wait...

I will wait for my for my love for a life time
I will wait for you here
I will wait for my for my love for a life time
I will wait for you here and now
I can feel you're closer now
I can feel you're closer now
I can feel you're closer now
I can feel you're closer now

I can feel you're closer now
so hold me close don't let me go
Track Name: Walls
tell the world that I have a reason
to see the love that I have not fail
let it go remember to breathe in
the WALLS come down

see a world where LOVE only matters
take a breath and hold it in deep
break away from things left in tatters
the walls come down
and the walls come down

and my hands unbound
and the world it wants release
and the walls come crashing to the ground
they fall with out a sound

My father told me long long ago
to live and witness all the LOVE there is
endless LOVE and passion if found
where the walls come down

hold a hand and LOVE when it matters
witness hope when all seems in doubt
feel the weight that lifts from your shoulder
the walls will come down
as the walls come down

and my hands unbound
and the world it wants release
and the walls come crashing to the ground
gone without a sound

to live and witness all the LOVE
all the Love that we can find
we can finally rise above
above the prisons in our minds
Track Name: Tug of War
you took the world as it came and went
and never let the rope burn your hands
in this tug of war

you saw the world as colors only in bright
then we lost this boy
and the world it cried
you said…..

its a TUG OF WAR
so hold on tight
its a tug of war
don't let them pull you over the line

sometimes I have to check my self
cause you taught me to cherish every moment that we have
to embrace this life
even if it burns our hands
and dig your feet into this earth
its a tug of war that we fight

its a tug of war
so hold on tight
its a tug of war

this was a war you should have won
still you showed only grace
and you embraced the end
you said…..

its a tug of war
so hold on tight
its a tug of war
don't let them pull you over the line

sometimes I have to check my self
cause you taught me to cherish every moment that we have
to embrace this life
even if it burns our hands
dig your feet into this earth
its a tug of war that we fight

its a tug of war that we fight
its a tug of war
so don't let them pull you down
don't let them pull you over the line
just live this life
Track Name: Carry On
across the river across the sand
we're moving on again
forever changed
before tonight before too long
as the lights are fading down
I can see them fall

but I will never forget
that the LOVE in this place
it carries on, it carries on
and we will CARRY ON
we will never forget
this moment will never change
but carry on, carry on
this LOVE will carry on…

we understand
we understand
we say goodbye
but this moment never dies

across the river, across the sea
this new LOVE can set us free
and I can feel it rise

but I will never forget
that the LOVE in this place
it carries on, it carries on
and we will carry on
we will never forget
this moment will never change
but carry on, carry on
this LOVE will carry on…

we understand
we understand
we say goodbye
but this moment never dies

this moment it never dies
this will never die but carry on
this LOVE will carry on
Track Name: Gorgeous
you are grace
a silhouette lost in perfection
unbreakable and beautiful
and all I want is you

you are GORGEOUS for all the world to see
she is gorgeous for all the world to see
she is gorgeous

take me home
to a world of hope, the taste of wonder
your lips of gold will they wait for me
for I’m lost here without you

you are gorgeous for all the world to see
you are gorgeous for all the world to see

put your hands into the fire you won't burn
you broke my silence and all my instincts they’ve return
you rule this world with such an elegant embrace
a queen inside your beauty holds us all in place

you are gorgeous for all the world to see
she is gorgeous for all the world to see
you are gorgeous
you are gorgeous
for all the world to see
Track Name: The Hope For Better Days (Cold War)
you can't go home - you can't believe or imagine anything
the taste of hope and insanity was sweet and maddening
and the chords you’ve learned they don't ring the same
suddenly, it was gone

we are - trapped behind the lines in this cold cold war
behind the enemies lines what are we fighting for?
we're trapped behind the lines in this cold cold war
and we HOPE FOR BETTER DAYS
for better days to come
the hope of better days to come

its so cold here - the words are a mist not a meaning
explosive and loud - the grass has died from all the screaming
so many hands reach up from the wreckage of time
can we comfort all the ones that are still trapped inside

trapped behind the lines in this cold cold war
behind the enemies lines what are we fighting for
we're trapped behind the lines in this cold cold war
where we fight among
we fight among ourselves

we can't go on - we can't believe, imagine anything
still we kill the king of beasts just for a photograph
will the chords we sing ever ring the same?
where suddenly the cold is gone
with better days to come.......
with the hope of better days to come
with the hope of better days to come
with the hope of better days
Track Name: Mortals
here we are stranded in time
cut a drift, floating with the tide
we are no where to be found
can I find any time?
cut the ties with the lies
find a way to leave this battleground

doing this can lift you up until you break
but I won't stop and I won't come down
and in my dreams
we are standing out on the edge of the Earth
as we break the surface and the sound

I try to be strong
I'll try no to break
I'm not made of brick I'm not made of stone
there is blood inside these veins

we are all MORTALS
we are all mortals
we are all... (we are all fragile)
we are all mortals
we are all mortals
we are all... (we are all fragile)
and I will give, I will give
but I won't give in
these waves of regret are now waves of joy
we are all mortal

here we are standing with fear. he's a liar
hoping to convince the world
the courage can't found
But in my dreams
we have overcome all the fear in the Earth
as we learn to reason… from love comes joy.

and I will be strong
I will not break
though I'm not made of brick, I'm not made of stone
there is LOVE inside these veins

we are all mortals
we are all mortals
we are all... (we are all fragile)
we are all mortals
we are all mortals
we are all... (we are all fragile)
and I will give, I will give
but I won't give in
and I will give, I will give
but I won't give in
these waves of regret are now waves of joy….
they are waves of joy
there is LOVE inside these veins
I won’t give in
these waves of regret are now waves of joy
and we are all mortal
and I will give
but I won’t give in
Track Name: Come To Tears
and I surrender
to the loneliness the rain
all the voices
are coming back again
and I'm forever lost in-between

I'll surrender
to the dark inside of me
I have my reasons
I'm the monster in this dream
so forever from me I will run

"I see you"
the devils sing to terrify
so all my Angels run
to the dark side soon now all the LOVE is gone
can I carry on?
or shall I run and hide away?
run away tonight

I'll surrender
to the shadows on the wall
it seems to reason
that so many tears must fall
I am unwell and afraid..

"I see you"
The voices sing to terrify
as my angels run
in a mad place far away the LOVE is gone
and now everyone
has run away from me
run away tonight

uh oh my world is gone
and I can not be seen
uh oh its come to tears
and now I'm in-between
uh oh who I am is gone
when will I be free?
Uh oh uh oh
will I ever be LOVED?
when will I be free?
when will I be LOVED?

I've lost myself...
Track Name: The Fading Light
the day is home to fate
and life entwined to keep us safe
and now the time is gone
to flesh and bone
and its silent here - again

I will pull up even if it pulls me in
I can lift you up even if I break again
I will keep you safe even if it pulls me in
and the white light fades again

the world is one less sea
and still it swells to keep us free
though we are fragile when strong
we were never alone
and its silent here - again

I will pull you up even if it pulls me in
I can lift you up even if I break again
I will keep you safe even if it pulls me in
and the white light fades
as the white light fades again

I will lift you
I will pull you
even if it pulls me in
Track Name: Part of Something Beautiful
feel the LOVE through my hands
feel the same
show me what we are
together we are one
and may you find the strength to know that you are
Part of something beautiful
part of something beautiful

feel the world fill with LOVE
this is fate
and I will give all that I am
this promise I make
and never break
may we find the strength to know that we are
part of something beautiful
part of something beautiful

I miss now that you are home and far away
my heart it aches like it never has loved before
I miss you now
I miss the light that keeps me home
my kindred soul I’m coming home

feel the LOVE through my hands
feel the same
show me what we are
together we are one
part of something beautiful
come and take me home
