Track Name: Waiting
Lover I know you did not mean to go
It's not your fault you could not stay
And now I cry for I can't take no more
I watch you slowly fade to grey

So take care, take care my dear
Play fair when you lose faith
'Cause I'm scared, so scared my dear
But I will be right here
You know that I will wait for you

I'm reaching out with all the strength I've got
You're reaching back with arms so weak
And now your effervescent spirit's shot
This isn't who you're supposed to be

So take care, take care my dear
Play fair when you lose faith
'Cause I'm scared, so scared my dear
But I will be right here
You know that I will wait for you

I will wait, I will wait for you
Until the world is through
I'll be here for you

Not a day goes by that you don't cross my mind
Your presence lingers in my skin
But I have hope that your lost soul will one day find
The peace that's hidden deep within
Track Name: Another Day
Another day, I sit and watch the poison in your eyes
Another way to make you see you're living out a lie
You look at me pretending this emotion's what you feel
Why can't you see? The poison drips until the wounds have healed

With all sincerity, I loathe your passionless smile
Can you make it worth my while?

Don't look away, don't blink, don't close your eyes you'll miss it all
Oh its too late, you've sealed them shut so you can't watch us fall
This gravity's a fool's gold waiting for some big reveal
But fools can see, we fell before we had a chance to feel

With all sincerity, I loathe your passionless smile
Can you make it worth my while?

And he takes control of me
Even though you're all I see
Letting go cannot be done
when I tell you you're the one
And he takes control of me
Though I'm praying time will heal
Letting go cannot be done
When I tell you you're the one

Another day, I sit and watch the poison in your eyes
Another way to make you see you're living out a lie
Track Name: Sinking In
I felt the weight sinking in
I could hardly see its shape
I felt it crawl beneath my skin
Slowly seep into my veins

Gone unnoticed once before while it slowly dragged me down
Now my body can't afford to carry this weight anymore

You've given half your heart to me while you wait for a piece of mine
But I cannot give my heart to you if I want my peace of mind
You sacrifice who you are when you share your heart with another life
Our halves only make one whole but we're two bright souls that deserve to shine

I look in your eyes and I find
There's an overwhelming peace
But I cannot lie I can't hide
All the darkness you've unleashed

I have handed you my soul on a platter that's made of gold
Now I'm left here on my own barely braving the great unknown

You've given half your heart to me while you wait for a piece of mine
But I cannot give my heart to you if I want my peace of mind
You sacrifice who you are when you share your heart with another life
Our halves only make one whole but we're two bright souls that deserve to shine

Come the end of the day
It's worth pain and I'll bear the weight
Lover for you I'd give it all
Give you everything
Take all you can inside your hands
Hold it carefully
Take all you can
Track Name: Loaded Gun
I told myself it'd be today
But the light from the sun got up and ran away
Found a place that is safe to stay
Built a nest in a home where all my doubts can lay

Rain or sun I stand with a loaded gun
But I can'y hide behind my fire
For in my mind I know that the battles won
My fear is fed by my desire
With my weapons at my side
I can clear my clouded mind

Hold my hands up against my heart
Take a breath hold it in and soon my pulse will start
Feel a push from beneath my skin
And the world that surrounds is slowly caving in

Rain or sun I stand with a loaded gun
But I can'y hide behind my fire
For in my mind I know that the battles won
My fear is fed by my desire
With my weapons at my side
I can clear my clouded mind
