1. Crawling In The Dark

I will dedicate
And sacrifice my every
Thing for just a second's worth
Of how my story's ending
And I wish I could know
If the directions that I take
And all the choices that I make
Will end up all for nothing

Show me what it's for
Make me understand it
I've been crawling in the dark
Looking for the answer
Is it something more
Than what I've been handed
I've been crawling in the dark
Looking for the answer

Help me carry on.
Assure me it's ok to
Use my heart and not my eyes
To navigate the darkness
Will the ending be
Ever coming suddenly
Will I ever get to see
the ending to my story

Show me what it's for
Make me understand it
I've been crawling in the dark
Looking for the answer
Is it something more
Than what I've been handed
I've been crawling in the dark
Looking for the answer

So when and how will I know

How much further do I have to go
And how much longer 'til I finally know
'Cause I'm looking and I just can't see what's in front of me
In front of me

Show me what it's for
Make me understand it
I've been crawling in the dark
Looking for the answer
Is it something more
Than what I've been handed
I've been crawling in the dark
Looking for the answer

2. Remember Me?

I stand here face to face
With someone that I used to know
He used to look at me and laugh
But now he claims
That he's known me for so very long
But I remember being no one

I wanted to be just like you
So perfect, so untouchable
Now you want me to be with you
Someone who used to have it all

Do you remember now
You acted like you never noticed me
Forget it
'Cause the gone has come around
And you're not allowed to be a part of me

Did you know me?
Or were you too preoccupied
With playing king in your small kingdom
And now the real world
Has stripped you of your royalty
And from your kingdom you're evicted

I wanted to be just like you
So perfect, so untouchable
Now you want me to be with you
Someone who used to have it all

Do you remember now
You acted like you never noticed me
Forget it
Cause the gone has come around
You're not allowed to be a part of me

Part of me
Part of me
Part of me

You're never going to be a part of me
You're never going to be a part of me
You're never going to be a part of me
You're never going to be a part of me
You're never going to be a part of me
You're never going to be a part of me

Do you remember now
You acted like you never noticed me
Forget it
Cause the gone has come around
You're not allowed to be a part of me

Part of me
Part of me
Part of me

3. Running Away

I don't want you to give it all up
And leave your own life collecting dust
And I don't want you to feel sorry for me
You never gave us a chance to be
And I don't need you to be by my side
To tell me that everything's alright
I just wanted you to tell me the truth
You know I'd do that for you

So why are you running away?
Why are you running away?

'Cause I did enough to show you that I
Was willing to give and sacrifice
And I was the one who was lifting you up
When you thought your life had had enough
And when I get close, you turn away
There's nothing that I can do or say
So now I need you to tell me the truth
You know I'd do that for you

So why are you running away?
Why are you running away?

Is it me, is it you
Nothing that I can do
To make you change your mind
Is it me, is it you
Nothing that I can do
Is it a waste of time?

Is it me, is it you
Nothing that I can do
To make you change your mind
Oh oh

So why are you running away?
Why are you running away?
(What is it I've got to say)
So why are you running away?
(To make you admit you're afraid)
Why are you running away?

4. Pieces

Turn around and pick up the pieces

I, like a rock, sink
Sinking 'til I hit the bottom
The water is much deeper than I thought
Nothing to swim with
Kicking but I keep sinking
A lesson that no one could have ever taught

'Cause I can almost breathe the air
Right beyond my fingertips
I'll turn around and pick up the pieces
One more push and I'll be there
Back where I belong
I'll turn around and pick up the pieces

I see the picture
Blurry but now it's in focus
A fairy tale I purchased on my own
I finally woke up
Everything is better
A chance for me to open up and grow

I can almost breathe the air
Right beyond my fingertips
I'll turn around and pick up the pieces
One more push and I'll be there
Back where I belong
I'll turn around and pick up the pieces

Suffocating sinking further almost everyday
Barely treading water knowing I will not give up
I will not give up
I will not give up

I can almost breathe the air
Right beyond my fingertips
I'll turn around and pick up the pieces
One more push and I'll be there
Back where I belong
I'll turn around and pick up the pieces

5. Let You Know

I just thought that I'd let you know
That although I'm far
I'm close to you within
And all the time spent by your side
Is taken deep in me
Held for me to keep

To look upon when I'm feeling like
Everything and one
Is hurting me for something or other
It takes me to a better place
Nowhere I'd rather go
Thought I'd let you know

Who you are
What you do
Makes me burn to be in you
Who you are
And what you do
I'm burning to be in you

I just thought that I'd let you know
Being near you is
A gift I only wish I could treasure
But for now I'll sit and wait
But I'm still burning though
Thought I'd let you know

Who you are
What you do
Makes me burn to be in you
Who you are
What you do
I'm burning to be in you

Thought I'd let you know
It feels like I'm falling
I'm all on my own
Thought I'd let you know
It feels like I'm falling
I'm all on my own
Thought I'd let you know

Who you are
And what you do
Makes me burn to be in you
Who you are
And what you do
I'm burning to be in you

6. Better

Just when I thought that I was better
I realized that I don't know what better was
Is it...
Better than I used to be?
Better for you or for me?
I'd better hurry cause I need a better view of things

I don't know what it is or what I might be coming down with
Don't know where I've been
Don't know where to go
Can't remember all the things that I need to know
All I know is that if I think about it
I'd still rather be me than me be you

And I'm not getting any better
Cause everytime I can't remember what it's for
Is it...
Better now than yesterday?
Better that I am this way?
I'd better not be so afraid
I bet I shouldn't say

I don't know what it is or what I might be coming down with
Don't know where I've been
Don't know where to go
Can't remember all the things that I need to know
All I know is that if I think about it
I'd still rather be me than me be you

I don't know what it is or what I might be coming down with
I don't know what it is or what I might be coming down with

Don't know where I've been
Don't know where to go
Can't remember all the things that I need to know
All I know is that if I think about it
I'd still rather be me than me be you
Me be you

7. Ready For You

Go on
Make me feel it's useless
When in fact it's you that need to have me near
So now
Keep me at safe distance
And with a little persistence I'll make it crystal clear

I'll be around
Only if you want me to
Be there by your side
I'm ready for you
So don't be afraid
'Cause I know what you're going through
So when you think it's time
I'm ready for you

Now you seem to be content with
A one sided friendship with you I've got to chase
Slow down so I can smell the roses
But the road you chose is crooked and unpaved
(My tires are spinning but to no avail)

That I'll be around
Only if you want me to
Be there by your side
I'm ready for you
Don't be afraid
'Cause I know what you're going through
So when you think it's time
I'm ready for you
I'm ready for you

That I'll be around
Only if you want me to
Be there by your side
I'm ready for you
Don't be afraid
'Cause I know what you're going through
So when you think it's time
I'm ready for you

I'll be around
Only if you want me to
Be there by your side
I'm ready for you

Don't be afraid
'Cause I know what you're going through
So when you think it's time
I'm ready for you
I'm ready for you
I'm ready for you

8. Up and Gone

Staring at the white above
Can't tell if I'm alive or am I dead
Or is it in my head?
Where'd I go wrong?

Staring at the white above
One day I closed my eyes and here I am
A cold, unhappy man
I've come to realize the life I have I hate
The pulse I need is slowly fading
Until I've lost it all
I've been waiting for an inspiration
For a chance I never got to take
Before it's much too late
(Where'd I go wrong?)

Where's the boy that used to run?
Could it be he's up and gone away?
He seems so far away
And all the things I could have done
Could it be they've up and gone away?
They seem so far away

It feels as if the boy in me
Has left and been replaced with a cheap and bitter
Imposter of myself
I must find the one that used to be
Approach him slow, don't be afraid to say
"Can he come out and play?"
(Where'd I go wrong?)

Where's the boy that used to run?
Could it be he's up and gone away?
He seems so far away
And all the things I could have done
Could it be they've up and gone away?
They seem so far away

Staring at the sky above
I've found a chance I'm finally going to take
I've learned from my mistakes
(Where'd I go wrong?)

Where's the boy that used to run?
Could it be he's up and gone away?
He seems so far away
(Where'd I go wrong?)
And all the things I could have done
Could it be they've up and gone away?
They seem so far away
(Where'd I go wrong?)

9. Too Little Too Late

I've been so long in waiting
Putting my life on hold for this
Chance to live out my dreams
You think you know what I should
Do with the choices I now have
Make them benefit you

What if I don't wanna hear the things you say?
Where were you when I was needy yesterday?
You want in with me, now that it's good
But it's too little, too late

Time and again I've asked you
Just for some light to show the way
I was in total darkness
You act like I owe you something
But I don't owe anything to anyone but me
Have you no dignity?

What if I don't wanna hear the things you say?
Where were you when I was needy yesterday?
You want in with me, now that it's good
Where were you yesterday?
What if I don't wanna hear the things you say?
Where were you when I was needy yesterday?
You want in with me, now that it's good
But it's too little, too late
You're too late

I know exactly what I'll
Do with the advice that you gave
Watch me throw it all away

What if I don't wanna hear the things you say?
Where were you when I was needy yesterday?
You want in with me, now that it's good
Where were you yesterday?
What if I don't wanna hear the things you say?
Where were you when I was needy yesterday?
You want in with me, now that it's good
But it's too little, too late
But it's too little, too late
But it's too little, too late

10. Hello Again

I dream that someday we'll be able to
Look back on this together and say
It was for the best and that it made us
Stronger today, stronger today

There's much more for us to see
A brand new day for you and me
And with confidence I say, "We're better than ever"
And I don't know where this will lead
But in my life you need to be
'Cause I need to say, "Hello" again

I'm so afraid that if I wait too long
You'll never look in my eyes again
With a look that gave me strength and gave me hope
And made me feel I've inspired

There's much more for us to see
A brand new day for you and me
And with confidence I say, "We're better than ever"
And I don't know where this will lead
But in my life you need to be
'Cause I need to say, "Hello" again

Hello again, hello again, yeah
Hello again, yeah

There's much more for us to see
A brand new day for you and me
And with confidence I say, "We're better than ever"
And I don't know where this will lead
But in my life you need to be
'Cause I need to say, "Hello" again

There's much more for us to see
A brand new day for you and me
And with confidence I say, "We're better than ever"
And I don't know where this will lead
But in my life you need to be
'Cause I need to say, "Hello" again

11. To Be With You

Make me feel again
Slide across my skin again
Let me uncover you to rediscover you
And I will open up
If you promise to give in
On this perfect night
Let the two of us be one

We will be again another time
No matter what all the others say
'Cause I would leave it all so far behind
Just to be with you today

So make me feel again
Feel your every breath again
Nevermind everyone
There's only me and you

We will be again another time
No matter what all the others say
'Cause I would leave it all so far behind
Just to be with you today

Just to be with you today
Just to be with you today
Just to be with you

We will be again another time
No matter what all the others say
'Cause I would leave it all so far behind
Just to be with you today

So we will be again another time
And I will do all I need to do
To leave the others all so far behind
Just so I can be
Just so I can be
With you, with you, with you, with you

12. Give It Back

We've shared our lives and all of what we know
But now it seems you don't know me from
The guy next door, or the next or the next

Give it back
You need to give it back
The loyalty is something that you lack

I let you in and showed you all of me
But you took it all then trashed the place
And I'm so sick of cleaning it up

Give it back
You need to give it back
The loyalty is something that you lack

Give it back
My time and devotion
Give it back
The love that I gave

No more making it up to you
I don't think that you're ever going to do it
No more making it up to you
I don't think that you're ever going to do it
No more making it up to you
I don't think that you're ever going to do it
No more making it up to you
I don't think that you're ever going to do it
No more making it up to you
I don't think that you're ever going to do it
No more making it up to you
I don't think that you're ever going to do it

Give it back
You need to give it back
The loyalty is something that you lack

Give it back
My time and devotion
Give it back
The love that I gave

No more making it up to you
I don't think that you're ever going to do it
