Soundtrack 03:33
Red mark the days They fall away like hair cut Short the interview We're not so sure if we'll see eye to eye Can't look at you without my Mind split in two the divide Runs through the bed where we lie Will you be the soundtrack Will you light the corners of this dark room Will you turn the camera round and show me Will you be the soundtrack Will you run the shadows out of this room Will you turn the camera round and show me what I've become Direct your gaze into the lens where Time breaks down I mark the frame where color spins your Your mouth forming a sound I hear it too All the trust I never knew With the film's grain breaking you into light Will you be the soundtrack Will you light the corners of this dark room Will you turn the camera round and show me Will you be the soundtrack Will you run the shadows out of this room Will you turn the camera round and show me what I've become Will you live the sound track can you light the way under a dark moon Will you break your character and show me Will you be the soundtrack will you light the corners of this dark room Will you turn the camera round and show me
Still No 04:12
So you see yourself in my eyes As I grow the lines on my face As I grow the space between us All I want is you to replace me Now I know you're trying And we all make bad choices Now that moment comes And you ask again but the answer is still no, still no Ask again and you tell me still no, still no Ask again and I hear those same words still no, still no Ask again and the answer is still no, still no And my friends they close around me Feel how warm those old connections Still that wind just blows right through We break the circle, leave in all directions And we feel it coming All that snow and rain And I see it all And I realize that there's no time to waste, on you Ask again, but the answer is still no And after all the straight lines you traced on me Now it's my turn to tell you please no Now I want you just to be here You pretend to care But in your eyes I see nothing glowing, for me And in your smile I read the answer, still no And in my wall the cracks are showing, slowly And in the light that runs through, I see the answer
Silence 05:17
Silence creeps up on me, late in the springtime Songs they look up at me, all words that don't rhyme And I'm afraid I'm not the one for you I'm afraid of who I'd be for you Would I live for you See all the cherry trees, see the beginning Out of the winter's dark, bright light is spinning And after last time, boy you think I'd know. After all the years of moving slow. Let me try my luck once more with you I know we said we're through And if I try to run well hold on til you see a sun brand new All of my memories, time lapsed and fading And each frame I watch myself, still hesitating If you ask me will I change at all All the lies I'll tell to break your fall Let me find that other you That doesn't bend or break in two And if you find some other one Well take that hand and run, just run…. Now I see that other you that didn't bend or break in two now you've found that silent one who holds you when the day is done Maybe after 10 more years I'll face your children, meet my fears And if I'm still alone then scream Don't wait too long in both my ears
I took the righteous path for so long But now I think I learned it all wrong Do I just hide the shame from everyone And do I leave my devil's work undone He takes me dreams, still I wake alone I hear that now's the time to settle down Into a world where men don't play around We wear the mask that keeps us in the game To touch the skin of players with no name Though I smell fear, still I stand my ground Hey there, is it you I see a body I once knew I like to think that I'm above it all. But lord on high it's just so far to fall I drop to earth and break without a sound You're not the one to pick me off the ground As I repeat, time will flash on by Slow down, can you try to be the you that we set free
Dream Girl 04:38
Take your time coz I want you to know That in my mind There's a place for you Stay asleep I will wait for you to wake up When we meet, I'll be mean to you And when you smile I won't know what to do And if we lie down I will ask you why you won't cry. See my life flash Right before me See my/your weakness hear my story Where's my/your dream girl And my/your dream world There's no dream girl And no dream world Come meet my mother She might forget your name And my little brother They say we look the same Down the road, dear When I take my leave of you There's no timeline Just these moments Just this fantasy A silly romance What's your star sign What's your blood type Where's my dream girl Where's my padded cell Take your cue, from the seasons Turning endlessly Find a way around the reasons Not to turn with me Take all my doubts And my fleetingness Add in your fear All points to pointless But if the snow stops And the weather holds As the leaves come All resistance folds Broken open Like a mussel shell Spill your riches You do that pretty well Where's that money at And where's the gamble Where's my siren song Where's my dream girl
That voice says you're running out of time That voice says, you've left it too late But I hear one more song So help me sing for death to wait That man and all of those people they'll bring us a fighting chance Draw near let the the band take over Draw near there's room to dance All those years crash into each other All those fears dive and run for cover And there she goes time the angry lover Still I stand here beside you like a brother We've run rings around sadness We stay while others have fled And i see 10 more birthdays I see our stars, they say go ahead All those years crash into each other All your tears dry up on your lover All those friends you've yet to discover I stand here beside you like a brother
Glace 04:29 video
Look out your window now I woke up here somehow I watched your shadow dance Is this our only chance Open the door and let me see your eyes Lead us to the dark and our demise Coz when you're old, I'll be gone So everyone thinks there's something wrong With you and me and wasting time Well if it's a waste for you, it's not for me I like the sun on your hair We lie, not going anywhere but someday this time just has to end when into your memories I will blend here it comes the question we both ask will i be your first and you my last And after the tunnel and the light By the grace of God we reunite As through the cold we stumble on Never quite sure of what went wrong Yes you I are just the same Looking back at what became Of all the time we gave away The little death we felt each day Or maybe we could look ahead Or try look at now instead And face the guilt and ride the fear And fly to where the stars appear They give us sage advice for free To keep on wasting time on you and me
It's the same time every year A little visit from our greatest fear With the tune that we all know On your birthday, I'm watching you glow Some were born to make their mark While all the others run around in the dark As we watch the sands run through On your birthday, I slow down for you there's an old game played and we both know how it feels to win then lose then play it again, Sam I'm so tired of running away Lord teach me to stay And I dream it's the first day all over again we didn't know each other's secrets then I wake to everyday sound For your birthday, we’ll buy another round Through the sorrow, we walked a long way just now and then I have to fight through the day and in the night I hope that you know That I'm trying to trust and I want it to show I want it to show (Repeat)
Final Stand 03:12
When I think of what I left behind In the air, I pushed you out of mind Wake up I'm over foreign land I wait til we make our final stand In your sleep, you breathe into my ear Long and deep, you breathe away my fear Morning I try to show my hand I say things to make you under Here we stand playing out a mystery As your teeth clench at my indecision Where's the man you once said you saw in me Every dream, just one more clouded vision But just as the sky begins to wake up, wake up And just as your eyes undo their make up We take up A ritual goodbye where no one speaks We steel ourselves to make sure nothing leaks Promise to meet on foreign land Both asking, is this our final stand
