What is this, you claim to profess some kind of rare deed done on time what mountain crossing have I missed what sort of barb's attached to your line Be careful of what you're promising don't dare look at me with those eyes Because you're way out of your league boy you're way out of your mind you can't be serious yet you can't be denied I've watched the sun rise and set on your deepest regrets yet you're still off chasing some star you leave me behind with your heart in my chest then come home bearing your latest scar When will you find what you're looking for don't you know it was here all the time
2.
Wish I could blame this on your youth but that would only make a martyr of the truth I chose to see only the beauty in your eyes never the shame never the lives Wish i could blame this on the sun I never seem to be the chosen one just a glimpse and you were gone this place without you seems all wrong Wish I could call you on the phone wish you happiness wherever you call home wish this night wasn't so dark and mean I wish you'd see me when you dream These are the days that won't let go this is the shame we're not allowed to show this is the anger from inside these are the days that will not die I wish these thoughts of you would end I wish that someday you could learn to be my friend I wish I'd never kissed your face I wish these thoughts to be erased I wish that someday you might find a little love a little peace of mind I wish that I don't fall apart I wish that you'd still hold me in your heart
3.
I don't mind if you pry, it's just me It's the one thing I protect so well this is my story I don't care where you go or who you tell cause it's my life and my lines and have no fear we're not forgotten here One step to the light to see one foot on the edge that's me one long trail into the night all over this battle field Sometimes you crawl sometimes you kneel one long trail into the night one long trail into the night What you sell is not who you are it's what you do Who I am I protect so well keep away from you I don't care where you go or who you tell because into the night we go on and on this is my story oh this is my story One step to the light to see one foot on the edge, that's me one long trail into the night
4.
Silver linings are for someone else's cloud yours have lately been all grey I know your dreams and they've seen their better days some of us who live have higher tolls to pay Why have you brought me this angel here Are you alive, ah come on look at me I know you're in there, just open your eyes I know you're alive oh but you just might not want to be I can hear you breathe just open your eyes hope is a stain on someone else's soul despair sustains your soul you waste your days, let them slip away hard to hold on when there's nothing left to hold Are you alive ah come on look at me I know you're in there just open your eyes I know you're alive oh ya just might not wanna be I can hear you breathe just open your eyes I want you to know I've never been far away there's nothing to be said can't be undone you're all I have so please don't go away there's nothing that you've said that can't be undone Are you alive ah come one look at me I know you're in there just open your eyes I know you're alive oh ya just might not wanna be I can hear you breathe just open your eyes
5.
Brick by brick stone by stone dismantle the will of a man strip his flesh and bone Reach out your hand the moment comes blade catches the light of your eyes the man slowly comes undone Nobody noticed no one saw a thing all turned a blind eye to the fallen and the bad luck he brings You wake in the morning after the sky's a color that you can't see friends have fallen by the wayside why isn't anyone talking to me get those funny looks in the market people you loved just stare wander on with your hands in your pockets even your girlfriend don't care They've all come to watch the emperor They've all come to watch the emperor They've all come to watch the emperor To watch the emperor fall One part truth three parts deceit two parts shit that you made up add passion for heat Did ya hear he said this can you believe he done that can you believe the nerve of the man let me at him tell me where he's at wake to your face in the mirror see someone you don't recognize stare at the changes in the reflection you've become someone that you despise

Well here we are boy and I'm through dreaming all these colors I've been flying have lost the will to keep me high and I'm not amused... So I said hey you're no a star so are you through screaming cause all this paranoia's got you hiding in the dark and I can't see you... Well shine the light and you can come on in can't you see I'm on a mission you can stay if you are wishin but I'm waiting... see my daddy hit the doorway when I was just a kid said he'd gone to find the sunshine and bring it back for me and I'm waiting waiting for the sun to shine Do you see my scars it's dark and they're glowing all these tiny little punctures are a doorway to the sun a doorway to the sun think I'll have another one I know he's in here I can feel him lookin for me I hear him laughin like he did like he did when I was young daddy's bringin me the sun and I'm waiting waiting for the sun to shine
7.
So we stay at morning they come she was gone at the first sign of trouble see how she runs then you're paralyzed her silhouette in light and she's dancing on your grave The sunrise breaks what's done is done the wind blows cold through your bones and you see how they run when you're trice denied and you're paralyzed I'll be the last man by your side All of your castles may crumble and your ministers may lie I will still be standing I'll be the last man by your side

Crazy 05:57

High upon a hill Looking over the ruins burning still Where was I for all of this. Where was I for all of this. You never looked so bad she said I didn't know I could do all this she said I didn't know all this could burn with just a kiss Burn with just a kiss I didn't know You didn't notice Rome was burning You didn't notice you had the flame still in your hands Why didn't you notice Rome was burning As the passion filled your eyes You couldn't see to find the home you'd left behind Like all the lovers that live blind Lovers that live blind No you couldn't see You didn't notice Rome was burning You didn't notice you had the flame still in your hands Why didn't you notice Rome was burning
10.
We sit alone together and the space begins to breathe distance seems to come alive why this emptiness between you and me Where is your compassionate smile come here take hold of me I'll stroke your hair for a little while just rest your eyes, it'll be all right you see just rest your eyes, it'll be all right you see We sit alone, together your Crystal Blues have turned to ice your heart is colder then November what is it that I've failed to recognize I could make all of this better just don't close your eyes I could make all of this better just don't close your eyes I could make all of this better please don't close your eyes

In Your Eyes 05:15
12.
Look into the sky, you can't erase what's in your eyes Look into the sun, you cannot face what you've become Through the shopping malls, you blend into the human walls Your eyes search the faces, as you move within the places That you once moved with her, that you once knew with her When you were arm in arm showing happy to the world You were arm in arm showing happy to the world arm in arm showing happy to the world is no one happy in this world Grateful for breath, more than once you've cheated death Crushed till you scream, you can't awaken from this dream This I will pray for you, this I will promise you For every lover that's gone, another comes along And you will move in her, as if you always knew in her You will be Arm in arm showing happy to the world Arm in arm showing happy to the world Arm in arm showing happy to the world you will be happy in this world...
13.
I was a child, life in your arms you hold me the fire in your eyes stopped the bleeding the love in your heart kept me breathing I feel I'm dying again. I've got nothing but hatred for my lover and friend the lion in your eyes watches me screaming the cold in your heart keeps my blood freezing Thirteen days, before you left me here staring thirteen days, before you tried to stop caring Stare into the dark the emptiness of hell comes to enfold me take a long look at your sweet creation did you get a thrill to watch my heart breaking Thirteen days, before you left me here standing alone thirteen days, before you left me to die on a phone I cannot pretend, can't find an end oh, how I miss you I was your lover and you were my friend I pray to God I never see you again Thirteen days, before you left me here waiting to hold you Thirteen days, before you forgot what I told you Thirteen days, that you gave to me only to take from me Thirteen days, before you left me here breaking
