long way down when there’s no way out how i long for the way we were days go by in the dying embers I still remember these days I’m haunted by each day that passes by these days passing by I want to get out but I can’t live without you I can’t live without you long way down and there’s no way out still I ache for the way we were if I repent in the dying embers will you remember? these days I’m haunted by each day that passes by these days passing by I want to get out but I can’t live without you I can’t live without you can you save my soul? can you make me whole? try to remember... and the wind will blow but I won’t let go try to remember... I want to get out but I can’t live without you I can’t live without you

Soak 03:55
when we fell in love I fell into a black hole I'm black and blue you're a part of me that's scarred and rough but I'm running on empty and I've had enough the same old tears are falling down hold me under let me drown are you still afraid? well I've been there too lonely and drifting away from you I am your water to float in lost the will to go on but it’s coming back to me nothing left to hold on but it’s coming back to me the wall we built where I hid my heart in a silent storm I’m torn apart I’m fighting still but i’m wearing out where does it end? I am your water to float in lost the will to go on but it’s coming back to me nothing left to hold on but it’s coming back to me how do I sleep without you? how do I dream without you? how do I breathe without you? how do I say this to you? I am your water to float in

we could end this war and then you’d never have to doubt me again sick of going nowhere, sick of wondering if you’re still my friend living as a ghost, living in a dream living as a ghost, living in between if I could take back what I said, forgive for what we’ve become if I could give my love to you as if we’d never come undone living as a ghost, living in a dream living as a ghost, living in between maybe what I’m waiting for is you to get me by maybe what I’m waiting for is you to feel alive

Empires Fall 04:17
holy, when you lay your hands upon me in the doorway to heaven, in the neon light holy, when you wrap your arms around me and we might not get to heaven, it'll be alright but I can’t stop losing you I can’t stop the hurt I can’t stop losing you I can’t stop... what hope is left for us now? you keep telling me, gonna make it somehow even empires fall to the ground holy, I want to feel a higher heaven but the tears fall around me, and the days go by holy, you can wear your arms around me and I’ll tell you all about it in the daylight but I can’t stop losing you I can’t stop the hurt I can’t stop losing you I can’t stop... what hope is left for us now? you keep telling me, gonna make it somehow even empires fall to the ground if I can feel your heartbeat if I can know your mind if I can halt your retreat for just a moment in time... if your heart has spoken if you can never look back if our bond is broken red rose turned black… what hope is left for us now? you keep telling me, gonna make it somehow even empires fall to the ground

Heartbreaker 03:53
heartbreaker, will you hold me tight? I know your eyes, I can feel you in the night how can I touch you when your heart is cold and black? how can I reach you if you’ve gone and won’t come back? you want to tell me that it’s over so we’ll go and let it die but if you love me like you used to one more time… I’ll go straight for you, it’s all I wanna do I’ll dream for you, I’ll bleed for you heartbreaker, will you hold me tight? I know your eyes, I can feel you in the night how can I love you when you’ve left me all alone? how can I want you when this ache is all I’ve known? you want to tell me you’re a free man, fine then look me in the eye if I can love you like I used to let me try I’ll go straight for you, it’s all I wanna do I’ll dream for you, I’ll bleed for you heartbreaker, will you hold me tight? I know your eyes, I can feel you in the night

Scars 03:28
baby, I can't bear it alone I can’t tell you no wrong you know all my lies you know just where it hurts you’ve seen it in my eyes ooh, you know that I've got scars you know me without words what’s inside and you know all my scars no we can’t hide
8.
I do, do not, don't want to let go but you're pulling me under and I can't keep my head afloat I can, cannot, can't give what I don't got if we don't got love then we got nowhere left to go tangled memories I can't forget this year I let you slip through my fingers, I was pushing you away I give, I take, I bend, and I break if it's already over I won't beg for you to stay tangled memories I can’t get out of my head I can’t run from the weight of the things you said I can’t hide from the light and the things I’ve done I keep fighting but all that I had is gone and I lost myself...

Savior 04:55
when the secrets that I keep, pull me down into the deep I can’t be your savior underwater when you ask me to believe, when you wear it on your sleeve I can’t be your savior underwater I know when I fall, when my back’s up against the wall I can’t tear the darkness from the light I know when you go, wherever you will go I can’t tear the darkness from the light go... if you’re drowning let me be your air, don’t hide your love when I’ve lost myself again, when I hate the skin I’m in I can’t be your savior underwater think of all that we could be, in the end was up to me I can’t be your savior underwater when I don’t know what to do, I’m afraid I might have lost you… I know when I fall, when my back’s up against the wall I can’t tear the darkness from the light I know when you go, wherever you will go I can’t say the words to make this right go… if you’re drowning let me be your air don’t hide your love go… say the word to make this right if I could know which way to go, I’d give my life if I could see what’s meant to be, I’d give my life

Epitaph 03:34
you are rain on the waves the stars in the sky the calico days you are the delicate lines the wind in my hair the knot in my spine I live a little I lie a little I cry a little I die a little I don’t care you are the thorn in my side you're taking your aim you're taking your time you are the light on the stairs save your breath save your prayers

White Light 04:45
killing time or is it time that’s killing me? in the dusty sun I could drink until I’m free when it’s all done in the daylight, chalk and bone I was graceful like a falling heavy stone white light, white wine (I can’t be a part of you) I never wanted this for you (I can’t be apart from you) let my light shine (I can’t be a part of you) I don’t know how to get to you (I can’t be apart from you) as you’re leaving shut the door and leave the keys under the carpet worn as thin as memories with all our patterns from what I’ve come to love and lost paper lanterns crushed and swallowed by the frost white light, white wine (I can’t be a part of you) I never wanted this for you (I can’t be apart from you) let my light shine (I can’t be a part of you) I don’t know how to get to you (I can’t be apart from you) killing time or is it time that’s killing me? in the dusty sun I could drink until I’m free when it’s all done in the daylight, chalk and bone I was graceful like a falling heavy stone
