Lyrics

1) Leave My Friends

Somehow I walked into a catastrophe
Is this really happening, I ask myself Someone broke into my safest memories And took a piece of me, I can’t get back

Well I’m more than what I have, the less that I become
Am I bigger than this, I’ll ask before I start again
Well you can take everything, please just leave my friends

Picking up the pieces to this broken place
Where nothing stayed the same, neither have I
Is there any justice in the turns of fate
I’ll take my turn and wait, for better things to come

Well I’m thankful for what I have, I don’t require so much And I’m better with less, much less, but this I can’t pretend Well you can take everything,please just leave my friends

Tell me how you measure one’s true happiness
Tell me how you gauge one’s success
When there’s nothing left to use, that isn’t broken or bruised May you have someone to love and someone who loves you

Well I’m more than what I have, the less that I become
Am I bigger than this, I’ll ask before I start again
Well you can take everything, please just leave my friends

2) If You Can Run

Why are you still waiting, what is it you’re waiting for This anchor you’ve become I don’t recognize anymore Excuses that you never seem to mind
Watching you is watching time go by

If you can run, then run If you can run, then run

Nothing ever stays, as it was before
The fears that you own are the fears you can’t ignore Pinning pictures up against your wall
Places you wish to see but never go

If you can run, then run
If you can run, then run
Whenever you can , however you want If you can run , then run

If this were not true, i would have told you so
I always believed in you, just thought you should know

If you can run, then run
If you can run, then run
Whenever you can , however you want If you can run , then run

3) Lucky

Born into the bones, you were made this way Maybe raised this way, who could tell
Did anybody teach you how to stand up straight Learn to act your age, well you might as well

Throw me your life line, show me that big grin
Tell me i’m lucky, tell me i’m lucky
So glad that you’ve made it, when I never even make it Tell me I’m lucky, tell me i’m lucky

An unbearable witness to the best laid plans
A victim of circumstance caught in the undertow
Well beyond the reach and so far below
Hey stick with what you know, yeah stick with what you know

Throw me your life line, show me that big grin
Tell me i’m lucky, tell me i’m lucky
So glad that you’ve made it, when I never even make it Tell me I’m lucky, tell me i’m lucky
And everybody’s luck can always change

4) My Slow March

I’m a slow spinning wheel moving along in this life
With dreams of my own that puncture the night like the starlight A drop in the sea, it’s all by degrees , measured by the heart Continuing my slow march

I’m a slow moving train everyone writes on my side
Travel alone, beneath the night sky
When it’s all that you know, steady as she goes, bearings of the heart Directing me, my slow march

Tra la la la, me my oh my
What a promising start
Here I go again, my slow march

5) Sun Turns Down

Well you can tell me about the sunrise side The early risers and the right on times
But I prefer the slower slide of the sun

I’ll watch you closely
Descending without a sound
Colors streaming sideways
And its only for a moment and you don’t dare turn around When the sun turns down

Wouldn’t have it any other way Couldn’t drag me to another place It’s here where I will stay
I will stay

I’ll watch you closely
Descending without a sound
Colors streaming sideways
And its only for a moment and you don’t dare turn around When the sun turns down

Sun turns Down

6) Some Company

Two birds sing in a summer tree, declaring what they already know Better to sing with someone, then having to sing alone
Call and I’ll answer you, no pause or delay
Maybe you could use someone to pass a few hours away

Don’t mind if i follow you
I have nowhere else to be
I promise not to slow you down
Maybe you might find that you could use Some company

Everyone can use a passenger, someone to share the view Someone to entertain, someone to be amused
Travel down an unmarked road, destination we don’t know Power lines and empty skies, comfort in tales already told

Don’t mind if i follow you
I have nowhere else to be
I promise not to slow you down
Maybe you might find that you could use Some company

Don’t have much to offer you, that you don’t already know Direction i don’t need to know, i’ll go wherever you go

Don’t mind if i follow you
I have nowhere else to be
I promise not to slow you down
Maybe you might find that you could use Some company

7) If You Could

Tell me how we get back to where we started, Seems like such a long while ago
Right after the kiss, long before the breakdown Tell me how you reap what you sow

Only if you could
If you could
If you could
Well you know I will

Tell me that the stars will always keep on shining And hers will be the brightest of them all
Even though we know it’s only from the dying Long after the stars already gone

Only if you could
If you could
If you could
Well you know I will

You and I , it’s never been the easy way It’s never been the easy way, for you and I
This world’s not meant for us
When it’s you I love
Forever always, forever always

Silence pressing down with the weight of starting over
The circle breaks and were undone
Were undone

8) Brighter Side

Misery enjoyed my company, but I’ve already stayed too long Tell the other that I’m leaving
What a gracious invitation, now it’s time to say goodbye
If you should ever need to find me

Look on the brighter side

I don’t even know which way to go
Its so unfamiliar to me
Now i’m off and i am moving
I never saw it coming, imagine my surprise If you should ever need to find me

Look on the brighter side

Now i’m off to where the sun shines bright And I know that you’re always close behind

Well this misery enjoyed my company
But i really must be moving on
And you know i can’t forget you, forget you
Remembering your face and what hopes left in your eyes
If you should ever need to find me, look on the brighter side

9) Love Someone

If love was easy it would come in twos
One love for me and one for you
And this would last and it would have no end No date of return, no loss to learn
With the empty rows, as the last song ends And there’s noone left to console you

Are you strong enough Are you hard enough Are you brave enough To love someone

Love is patient and it takes all kinds
The more that you give the more you find Nothing stops this world from spinning around For every love lost, one is found
And flowers you lay, on a cold march day Against the dirty snow and a sky so gray

Are you strong enough Are you hard enough Are you brave enough To love someone

10) Want You

Well you’re quiet in this crowded room Doesn’t mean you’re insecure Attention can be hard to hold
When you’re easily misunderstood

Far from you to say anything
I know, never one to complain So funny, so funny how Everyone wants you now

Everywhere you should belong Patient waiting to begin
The view is never quite the same On the outside always looking in

Far from you to say anything
I know, never one to complain So funny, so funny how Everyone wants you now

They want you They want you now They want you

For every downturned eye
Every time you hold your breath When there’s no replay
To the letters you so carefully send To the letters you so carefully send

Far from you to say anything
I know, never one to complain So funny, so funny how Everyone wants you now

They want you They want you now They want you
