Awake

Awake

Ain't nobody gonna turn me off
From your touch
Ain't nobody gonna break me up
From this love

I'm dreaming of us
But it's not enough
Cause I miss you so much
I'm breathing for two
Can you try to?
Cause I need you to wake up

Ain't nobody gonna steal my eyes
From your gaze
I'll be living in your last twilight
All my days

I'm dreaming of us
But it's not enough
Cause I miss you so much
I'm breathing for two
Can you try too?
Cause I need you to wake up

Cause you were a fool to be brave
When the world's so cruel to the kindest face
But I'm lost, and I'm amazed
I could let you take this love to your grave

I'm dreaming of us
But it's not enough
Cause I miss you so much
I'm breathing for two
Can you try to?
Cause I need you to wake up…

Halfway to You

Halfway to You

It's been a long time, dear
The miles between us are everything I fear
Will another catch your eye? 
I don't want to say goodbye

I'm tired of being alone
So, love, I'm coming home

Halfway—halfway to you
Just stay, just stay true
It's been a long day, long night, too
But I'm halfway—halfway to you

There's nothing but memories here
Of all of the moments when I would hold you near
Do you ever wonder why— 
Why we ever waste our time? 

Cause words alone aren't enough
I need your every touch

Halfway—halfway to you
Just stay, just stay true
It's been a long day and a long night, too
But I'm halfway—halfway to you

I don't want a loveless life
I am not stopping until you are by my side again tonight

Halfway—halfway to you
Just stay, just stay true
It's been a long day and a long night, too
But I'm halfway—halfway to you

Heart

Beat, beat, steady now
Like our feet walking down
The cold, damp street, glistening with light

Your pulse, steady
How I can feel the in and out
And as it nears, whispering in rhyme

And when it's close to mine
They seem to beat in time
And when you're right beside
My world dances
So when the rhythm fades
We won't be afraid
Because the music will never die away

Breathe deep, slow it down
Don't try to speak — just hold me now
And feel our beat echoing in time

Your pulse, steady
How I can feel the in and out
And as it nears, beckoning in rhyme

And when it's close to mine
They seem to beat in time
And when you're right beside
My world dances
So when the rhythm fades
We won't be afraid
Because the music will never die away

No, the music will never die away

Promises

Promises are made to be broken
Promises are made for the weak
You utter words not made to be spoken
Without the hopes and fears of a dream

You fall in love, you fall in love
And you fall in love with a home you'll never see

Keep the memory of the unspoken
Take the touch and breath you need
Hold him tight till you feel he's choking
Clench your fists and drop to your knees

You fall in love, you fall in love
And you fall in love with a home you'll never see

Does he dance the pain away?
Does he rock you till you break?
Does he slip inside your head and leave his memory there instead?
Is he all that I can't be?
Does he hold your every dream?
And are we nothing but a hope without a home?
Come take me home

Play my heart just like a token
Play my song and steal the beat
Wrap this rhythm around another
Sing these words till you find peace

You fall in love, you fall in love
And you fall in love with a home you'll never see

Come take me home

Happy

Happy

You — you should just be here
Then it would be clear
Who was right

They — they don't know how to make the stars fall
They don't know how to make my skin crawl
They don't know how to make me fight

And we — we could just be happy
If we, we could just be happy

Wait, wait for the sunrise
Wait for the right time
Or till the right time's gone

Cause we — we could just be happy
If we, we could just be happy

I'm running in circles
Chasing this tale
A lover's last fight
We are going nowhere
But if we don't care
I'll be yours tonight

Love, there is no ending
No new beginning
That could make this right

Cause we — we could just be happy
If we, we could just be happy

I'm running in circles
Chasing this tale
A lover's last fight
We are getting nowhere
But if we don't care
I'll be yours tonight

And time tries not to hide
The wrinkles in your mind
It's we that build the wall
And it's we that make it fall

I'm running in circles
Chasing this tale
A lover's last fight
We're not going nowhere
But if we don't care
I'll be yours tonight

Learning to Lose You

Learning to Lose You

Pull the plug, loose your grip
Find my soul at your fingertips
Let me go, let me lie
In the grave of your mind

I will fall, I may drown
But feel my feet never touch the ground
I will soar, I will fly
But hear the beat as my heart cries...

You and I — we were made together
But you and I couldn't last forever
Now it's you and me, and honestly
I'm learning to lose you

Tip the scales to your side
Feel the weight fall from mine

I want to run and not look back
But I lose my feet to your heart's attack

You and I — we were made together
But you and I couldn't last forever
Now it's you and me, and honestly
I'm learning to lose you

Try

Try

Call me the beggar
You once called me the one
Now my calls go unanswered
And our song is unsung

Your love is another's
Your touch is his too
But do you ever remember
When our love was all that you knew?

All you had to do was try
All it would've taken was a moment of your time
All you had to do was try
And in your arms is where I'd die

You say you don't need it
You say that it's through
Yet you gave what I asked for
To every love that was new

All you had to do was try
All it would have taken was a moment of your time
All you had to do was try

But you took the easy road
Left me alone and cold
Tied to a million things
Things that we might have been
Disassembled your heart
Taking our love apart
Reinvented your mind
Telling yourself all the blame was mine

All you had to do was try
All it would've taken was the rest of our lives
All we had to do was try
And in your arms is where I'd die

San Francisco

San Francisco

Your face 'round every corner
Your ghost I try to find
Corner of Grant and Sutter
Miles and years behind

When will I ever forget
All of the moments we spent
Chasing each other's shadow
From here to San Francisco?

Your touch was warm in winter
The city ours to take
But your words melt in the summer
When laughter fades to pain

When will I ever forget
All of the moments we spent
Chasing a love we let go
Through streets of San Francisco?

From here to San Francisco...

You haunt me down the highway
Rolling across the bay
Still running from my regret
I wish you'd made me stay

When will I ever forget
All of the lifetimes we spent
Chasing each other's shadow
From here to San Francisco?

When will I ever forget
All of the love that we left?
I still can hear it echo
Through streets of San Francisco

From here to San Francisco...

Dreams

Dreams

Lover, throw your cares on the fire
See how they burn
There is nothing you might require
That I cannot learn

Lover, throw your clothes on the wire
Watch as they fall
Darkness drapes your skin with desire
An irresistible call

So we run, run till the dawn
In the night's light, we are young
And we soar till the sun
In our last breath, we've begun

Eye and ear alone do conspire
Delicately
Touch will take us higher and higher
Till we cannot breathe

Not a soul will know what transpires
Fall into me
Lover I will be your attire
Effortlessly

So we run, run till the dawn
In the night's light, we are young
And we soar till the sun
In our last breath, we've begun

Though the stars fall to the sea
I will hold you tight to me
As the world falls fast asleep
I will be your every dream

West

West

Sunrise on city sights
The tempest of the morning light
I find me tangled up in you

Quick feet on a stony walk
Cold hands and colder talk
I can't afford to see this through

I will leave you here, believe me
Even for all of my deceiving

I am not broken
But I am not confident
This is my hope and
This is all I can be to you

Long days and longer nights
True love on a westward flight
And true, still, a love I never knew

I don't mean to leave you bleeding
But my heart must keep on beating

I am not broken
But I am not confident
This is my hope and
This is all I can be to you

And you — you're falling to your knees
For all the lives we'll never lead
And as for them — they'll give until they bleed
But as for me — I love and then I leave

I am not broken
But I am not confident
This is my hope and
This is inconsequent
Cause I am not broken
I am not confident
This is my hope and
And this is all I can be to you

I'm giving up — I gave it all, and where's it gone?
For a love that will last, I long
And to the ones that are still holding on:
There is hope at the end of it all

Texas

Texas

Baby, drive down to meet in our city
Baby, drive down tonight
You know I just miss those pretty,
Pretty little bright eyes

Cause lover, we can't stop tomorrow
But we can give everything today
So baby, drive down to be mine
Baby, drive down tonight

Cause all that we were is over and done
And darling, your love has already won
And I cannot say what is to come
But run to my arms, and I'll be the one

Fifty miles to the nearest city
Running to the state line
Windows down with the cold wind whipping
And Texas on your mind

Cause lover, we can't stop tomorrow
But we can give everything today
So baby, drive down to be mine
Just come home tonight

Cause all that we were is over and done
And darling, your love has already won
And I cannot say what is to come
But run to my arms, and I'll be the one

Baby, drive down to meet in our city
Baby, drive down tonight
You know I just miss those pretty,
Pretty little bright eyes

Cause lover, we can't stop tomorrow
All we can give is today
So baby, drive down to be mine
Baby drive down tonight

Cause all that we were is over and done
And darling, your love has already won
And I cannot say what is to come
But run to my arms, and I'll be the one

I'll be the one...
Run to my arms — I'll be the one

Drive

Drive

Everyone's got a secret
Everyone's got a lie
So baby, tell me — was he worth it
This time?

And everyone's got a reason
Just to make it through the night
But if you can't see it working
Then who am I to ask why?

And so run away and don't look back
Cause the love you take is all that I had
And it'll be ok if you're the best I can have
Cause every heart you'll break will only drive you back
It'll drive you back

You take off for the country
Apart but not alone
And set your sights on someone
Whose heart can be your home

But lover, just remember
The last night that we had
Cause nothing else can hold you
The way these arms can

And so run away and don't look back
Cause the love you take is all that I had
And it'll be ok if you're the best I can have
Cause every heart you'll break will only drive you back

It'll drive you back

And so run away and don't look back
Cause the love you take is all that I had
And it'll be ok if you're the best I can have
Cause every heart you'll break will only drive you back

So run away and don't look back
Cause the love you take is all that I had
And it'll be ok if you're the best I can have
Cause every heart you'll break will only drive you back

It'll drive you back...
