    Verse 1:
    The world can rage into the night
    But you and I, we are satellites
    And even in the dark I can see your eyes
    They are the color of freedom, the color of life

    Pre-Chorus:
    And even if I lose everything
    You give me one reason to believe

    Chorus:
    If I had one shot, I'd use it on you
    In a world so frail, you are the one that's true
    If I had one breath, I'd breathe it for you
    You are the reason, I choose you

    Verse 2:
    I've watched the stars fall around me
    And all my hopes were colliding
    But even in the chaos you anchor me
    You bring me back to the solace that I need

    Pre-Chorus:
    And even if I lose everything
    You give me one reason to believe

    Bridge:
    And when you're out of sight, you're never out of mind
    And when you're out of touch, you're never far behind
    Faith is gone, but you are near
    And I am always in the clear
    When you're around, when you are here, I'll be okay
    Cause where there's love
    There can never be fear

    Breathe Again
    Verse 1:
    Will you take my hand
    Pull me through
    I’ve tried to stand
    Don’t know what to do
    I’m on my own

    Miserable, numb from pain
    Stuck behind, I cannot gain
    Is there no way out?

    Chorus:
    We’re falling into misery
    Consumed by our inequities
    We don’t wanna live alone
    So breathe your life into our bones
    Blinded by deficiencies
    These empty voids are all I see
    Hidden in the crevices
    There’s a hope to breathe again

    Verse 2:
    I’m a parasite among the dead
    The lies I’ve told better left unsaid
    This can’t be it

    The cycle goes
    It never ends
    Your words echo inside my head
    They capture me

    Chorus:
    We’re falling into misery
    Consumed by our inequities
    We don’t wanna live alone
    So breathe your life into our bones
    Blinded by deficiencies
    These empty voids are all I see
    Hidden in the crevices
    There’s a hope to breathe again

    Bridge: 
    You say these wounds will only grow
    If I don’t stop and let this go
    I give to you this withered heart of mine

    Mind is racing, can’t erase these
    Twisted memories that chase me,
    Haunt me, I’m done
    I’m lost I’m so far gone
    Could there be something more that
    We can rely on

    Chorus:
    We’re falling into misery
    Consumed by our inequities
    We don’t wanna live alone
    So breathe your life into our bones
    Blinded by deficiencies
    These empty voids are all I see
    Hidden in the crevices
    There’s a hope to breathe again

     

    Damage
    Verse 1:
    Stay here for a while and tell me
    What we’ve done so wrong all this time
    Cause all I can recall is how innocent we were

    I blocked out the pain and all our mistakes
    So I don’t feel a thing
    And all I can do is pray for something
    Deeper to hold on to

    Chorus:
    The damage has been done
    Do me a favor, just move on
    I wanna feel something that stays
    Something more than just my pain
    Cause I can’t sit here locked up by myself
    Give me a second chance
    And I will prove that I won’t fail

    Verse 2:
    Words don’t explain just how I feel
    When you’re this far away
    When will I ever really let this go?

    You drug me to the very bottom of
    Your selfish compromise
    All I wanna do is pray for something
    Deeper to hold on to

    Chorus:
    The damage has been done
    Do me a favor, just move on
    I wanna feel something that stays
    Something more than just my pain
    Cause I can’t sit here locked up by myself
    Give me a second chance
    And I will prove that I won’t fail

    Bridge:
    I’d like to find my way back home
    Some walks you have to take alone
    Don’t need you by my side at all
    I’m done, I’m moving on

    Chorus:
    The damage has been done
    Do me a favor, just move on
    I wanna feel something that stays
    Something more than just my pain
    Cause I can’t sit here locked up by myself
    Give me a second chance
    And I will prove that I won’t fail

     

    Empty Shadows
    Verse 1:
    You need to hold on to something true
    The odds are against your every move
    Break the chains held over you
    Don’t let it go, we’ll make it through

    Every day just feels the same
    Sick of playing this old game
    Will we ever see the light?
    Won’t stop, we will fight

    Chorus:
    The voids are closing in on your heart
    Take my hand and I’ll pull you through
    These empty shadows
    Healing will cover all the bleeding
    Don’t give in, keep breathing
    We’ll make it through these empty shadows

    Verse 2:
    Too weak to move, too tired to speak
    Is there someone who can set you free?
    Take the pain from deep inside
    I know one day you’ll be alright

    Every day just feels the same
    Sick of playing this old game
    Will we ever see the light?
    Won’t stop, we will fight

    Chorus:
    The voids are closing in on your heart
    Take my hand and I’ll pull you through
    These empty shadows
    Healing will cover all the bleeding
    Don’t give in, keep breathing
    We’ll make it through these empty shadows

    Bridge:
    I won’t give up tonight
    Won’t you save me?
    Every time I wake up feeling empty
    What else can I do?
    I will run to you
    Chorus:
    The voids are closing in on your heart
    Take my hand and I’ll pull you through
    These empty shadows
    Healing will cover all the bleeding
    Don’t give in, keep breathing
    We’ll make it through these empty shadows

     

    Haunting Me
    Verse 1:
    I’m so disgusted with myself
    I’ll probably never leave this hell
    And if I look the other way
    I’ll feel so broken, so ashamed

    I wanna see with brand new eyes
    I hope I make it through the night
    I dug myself into this hole
    All of these problems getting old

    Chorus:
    Is it only sorrow that brings me to my knees?
    Or is there something deep inside that I cannot see?
    I feel so empty without you haunting me
    I hope you’ll save me

    Verse 2:
    How did it ever get this way?
    I cannot find the words to say
    That I can’t handle all the pain
    And that I’d like you to stay

    When will this stop? I feel the burn
    It’s just to hard, it’s getting worse
    What if I’m ready to give up?
    I guess I never was enough

    Chorus:
    Is it only sorrow that brings me to my knees?
    Or is there something deep inside that I cannot see?
    I feel so empty without you haunting me
    I hope you’ll save me

    Bridge:
    And every time I fall I will look your way
    And if you’re not there to catch me
    I will never be the same
    I’m dying to breathe and
    I’m living to die
    Will you take this heart
    And make me feel alive?

    Verse 3:
    What if I opened up my arms?
    Then would you sew up this heart?

    Chorus:
    Is it only sorrow that brings me to my knees?
    Or is there something deep inside that I cannot see?
    I feel so empty without you haunting me
    I hope you’ll save me

     

    Serenity (featuring Joel Piper)
    Verse 1:
    I can’t breathe
    I can’t speak
    I can’t leave
    Cause you’re still running through these walls
    Trapped inside all your broken lies
    All the tears
    All the pain
    You can take
    I never wanted it all along
    But it’s when you’re gone that it feels so wrong

    Chorus:
    This is all we know
    I can’t hold on, I can’t let go
    I’m stuck inside these memories
    And breathing for serenity
    I need you most, don’t let go of this rope
    Tell me you’ll give up the lies
    Love until the day you die

    Verse 2:
    So lost
    You’re soul
    Stone cold
    This world has made you so desperate
    But I can’t hate you, can’t escape your touch
    Your face
    Your taste
    It taints all that is true
    Can’t get away, won’t be the same without you

    Chorus:
    This is all we know
    I can’t hold on, I can’t let go
    I’m stuck inside these memories
    And breathing for serenity
    I need you most, don’t let go of this rope
    Tell me you’ll give up the lies
    Love until the day you die

    Bridge:
    Hold me tight, don’t ever let me go
    I’d rather fade and die than have to be alone
    After you told me twice, I didn’t want to know
    Every breath that I begin to take
    Will it be enough, or are we just too late?
    Look into my eyes, the scene if filled with blue
    My heart beats fast with every beat for you

    Chorus:
    This is all we know
    I can’t hold on, I can’t let go
    I’m stuck inside these memories
    And breathing for serenity
    I need you most, don’t let go of this rope
    Tell me you’ll give up the lies
    Love until the day you die

    Stronger
    Verse 1:
    Have you lost yourself in your tangled lies
    I can see the pain in your bitter eyes
    I tried to save you, but you won’t allow me to
    So don’t accuse me for all that you put yourself through

    Chorus:
    Hold my head under the waters
    And let me drown like there’s no one else to blame
    One day I’ll come up stronger, so don’t
    Hold me down like there’s no one else to blame
    No one else to blame

    Verse 2:
    Give up your pride, and you can be free
    But you let anger thrive, buried way too deep
    I tried to save you, but you won’t allow me to
    So don’t accuse me for all that you put yourself through

    Bridge:
    We run in circles, always trying
    To make things all better, piece it together
    We run in circles but I cannot keep holding on

     

    Dangerous Love
    Verse 1:
    Float in ecstasy
    Ruin hopeless dreams
    I find it hard to breathe
    Without you here with me
    My eyes have turned to cold
    It chills me to the bone
    I need you like the rain
    To come alive again

    Chorus:
    They told me not to play with fire
    This is dangerous love
    You’re my hope, my one desire
    This is dangerous love

    Verse 2:
    A risk of innocence
    A taste so contagious
    I crave for something new
    To create a world with you
    These people live a lie
    So promise me tonight
    You’ll come in like the rain
    To bring me life again

    Bridge:
    I’d give up everything for you
    Cause I refuse to live a lie
    It’s worth it all to take a chance
    Or we’ll never live before we die

     

    Close
    Verse 1:
    Where’s the life I knew before?
    Scares me that I’m not afraid of losing anymore
    Where’s the edge I used to walk?
    Haunts me that I’m not afraid of hurting anymore
    I refuse to live my days
    So complacent that I’m numb to the bone
    I wanna live to see the day
    That the words I sing are more than just a song

    Chorus:
    Hold me close, I need to feel alive
    I can’t waste anymore time
    I am finally seeing the light
    Don’t let me go, I need to feel alive
    I can’t waste anymore time
    I am finally seeing the light

    Verse 2:
    Theres a bliss I used to love,
    A sweeter sense of freedom that I’ve ever felt before
    But every step I take, I fall
    Deeper into ignorance, it’s all I’ve ever known
    I refuse to live my days
    So complacent that I’m numb to the bone
    I wanna live to see the day
    That the words I sing are more than just a song

    Bridge:
    Teach me to walk on the waters
    Show me what a life with a meaning would be
    Take me across all the oceans
    I wanna go further than I’ve ever dreamed

     

    Promises
    Verse 1:
    It never ceased to cross my mind
    You said that we could fix it all, fix it all
    One day, one second at a time
    I’m teaching myself how to live again
    Without you in my skin
    And all that’s left to say is, look at all you’ve thrown away

    Chorus:
    I’ve had enough, I’m so fed up with all your broken empty promises
    You’ve had your chance, now move along and watch me finally live free again
    Not coming back, so save your breath
    This is the end, no second chance
    I’ve had enough, I’m so fed up with all your broken empty promises

    Verse 2:
    Let’s take a moment and look back
    Your words never meant a thing
    And that still remains
    I’m turning away from the past
    Cause you’re not worth my breath, my thoughts, my pain
    Or anything
    And all that’s left to say is that you threw it all away

    Bridge:
    And now, it’s my turn
    Allow me to use all your hurtful words against you
    The world is hitting you
    I won’t be there for you
    I hope you know that it’s far too late

     

    Endlessly
    Verse 1:
    I can’t make you understand
    It’s not my choice to make
    Give up all of my plans
    For you and me
    I can’t take all that you have
    But I give it all to you
    I give it all to you

    Chorus:
    I believe in you
    Will you believe in me?
    If I gave you the world
    If I gave you my life
    Would you see through it all
    And trust in me tonight
    Endlessly

    Verse 2:
    Give me hope, give me a sign
    Take my hand
    And I’ll be the one to show you right
    From all the wrong you see
    To feel freedom, to feel life
    In everything you do
    I’d give it all to you

    Bridge:
    For you, it’s unconditional
    It’s just within your reach
    I’d show you what it means to be endless
    My hope for you would never die
    My love would never fail
    Your wrongs would be made right
    We’d be endless

     

    Take Me Away
    Verse 1:
    One day we’ll be free
    Maybe one day they will learn
    We claim whats ours to keep
    We will sit and watch them burn
    Take your memories
    Run until you bleed
    Take back everything, everything

    Chorus:
    Take me away
    Take me away
    Free from mistakes
    Free from our yesterdays
    Take me away
    Take me away
    Free from the pains
    Free from our yesterdays
    Take me away

    Verse 2:
    There’s fire in your eyes
    I can feel it in my skin
    We’ll light the world on fire
    Watch it come alive again
    Take your memories
    Run until you bleed
    Take back everything, everything

    Bridge:
    Oh, it is tragic where we’re going
    So please be careful with yourself
    Love is a fragile, perfect ending
    Oh so take me to a different world

     

    All That You Need
    Verse 1:
    Pack up and drive away
    Like any other shallow day
    And wait for the coast line to swallow up your thoughts
    And pull you into drown
    Pull you into drown

    Chorus:
    And I could be your shelter
    And I could be your remedy
    And I could be your answer
    And I could be all that you need
    I will be your shelter
    I will be your remedy
    I will be your answer
    And I will be all that you need

    Verse 2:
    Wait for the phone to ring
    For a call to tell you that you’re free
    You’ve buried your heart so deep that the beating makes
    The ground shake at my feet
    The ground shake at my feet

    Bridge:
    You’re spirit’s breaking in the waters
    A sea of ignorance
    But I see a light in everything you do
    And ocean full of bliss
    You’re spirit’s breaking in the waters
    A sea of ignorance
    But I see a light in everything you do
    And ocean full of bliss

     

    Walking On Air
    Intro:
    You make me feel like I’m young again
    You take me high like I’m walking on air

    Verse 1:
    You’re all I feel surrounding me
    The breath between the melodies
    The sudden rush of energy
    As you run through my bones
    And when you speak, it pierces
    The resonant, the deafening
    It silences the battling that’s all around me

    Chorus:
    You make me feel like I’m young again,
    Take me deeper than I’ve ever been
    You take me high like I’m walking on air
    You make me feel like we’ll never end
    Take me deeper than I’ve ever been
    You take me high like I’m walking on air

    Verse 2:
    All the years I let go by
    The wasted days of apathy
    When everything was drowning me
    I’ve gained back every day
    You stopped the world to reach me
    Now I never have to live alone
    Cause in you, I have found my home

    Bridge: One thing stands true, I’m found in you
    In you and you alone
    In you I’ve found my hope
    I’ll lose it all, all for your call
    For you and you alone

     

    Bittersweet As Rain
    Verse 1:
    I’ve searched far and wide
    Craved for a bliss to find
    You lead me to the dark
    That lies inside my heart
    You poured so much in me
    The sweetest melodies
    But I can’t keep holding on
    The light is much too far

    Chorus:
    Remind me of the days
    As bittersweet as rain
    When all I ever knew was joy in you
    When you were here to stay
    It’s bittersweet as rain

    Verse 2:
    Take pride in what we know
    And leave it all below
    To grow into a flame
    A reminder of the pain
    Holdfast for what is real
    Where rain will make you heal
    Your eyes, they call me home
    Where streets are made of gold

    Bridge:
    Our days will fade with every memory
    And the sun will set with every mystery
    But I won’t forget every promise said
    And the heaven in your eyes

     

    Through The Flames
    Verse 1:
    Let’s live as if we don’t have much to lose
    Let’s risk it all just to feel alive
    I’ll dig and search until I’ve found the truth
    This life ain’t worth it if I’m living a lie

    Pre-Chorus:
    Oh what a mess we’ve made
    With all our wasted days
    What will it take to prove
    That we don’t have much time to lose?

    Chorus:
    Running through the flames
    To feel something
    This weight will never break us
    Dancing through the pain
    To feel something
    This youth will never leave us

    Verse 2:
    Your words hit me like a steel freight train
    As if I’m waking for the very first time
    Strength surrounds me like an ocean wave
    You couldn’t take it from me if you tried

    Pre-Chorus:
    Oh what a mess we’ve made
    With all our wasted days
    What will it take to prove
    That we don’t have much time to lose?

    Bridge:
    My hope is firm and sure
    An anchor to my soul
    As long as your promise stands
    This youth will never end
