Higher

 

Wake Up - Wake up it’s begun.

 

All Your Words - We gave you everything that we had. You left us with nothing but we’re not sad no. We’re the ones that let you in, we’re the ones who truly did but that is not the only sin we will not forgive. All, all, all your words were so untrue. All, all, all of this you can’t undo. Oh was it ever your intent to make good on all you said? All, all, all your words were so untrue. All, all, all of this you can’t undo. That’s ok your karma is coming for you.

 

Higher - Down down down you’re always going down. Round and round and round you’re always going round. Honestly it’s so hard to see cuz all you need is the only thing left to be. Higher you know you could go higher you know. You know it’s the only place left to go but you, you won’t and so you will never know. Higher you know you could go higher you know. You’ll never know. Oh you’ll never know until you go.

 

Gone - I just heard you’re gone is it true? Cuz I can hear your song like it’s new. We watched you go go go go on through. It was oh so oh so hard to do. And though you’re gone gone gone we'll hold on to all of you. We’re singing along with you. We’ll keep it alive for you. It’s the only thing left to do. We’ll keep it on on on on keep it on for you. Oh was it yesterday? The skies were blue and clear but now they’re gray. But even though you’re gone you still remain. All of you. We’re singing along with you. We’ll keep it alive for you. It’s the only thing left to do. We’ll keep it on on on on keep it on for you.

 

Go - I let you walk away. What else could I do? What else could I say? How could I break through? You were so blind but that was always you. If you opened up your eyes you’d see none of it, none of it. If you opened up your eyes you’d see none of it was true. And you should know I did everything that I could. I’ll let you go I only wish that I could save you from yourself, save you from your shell. And you should know I did everything, everything. On and on and on we could have gone you know but every time we tried to hold on you let go. If you opened up your eyes you’d see all of it, all of it. If you opened up your eyes you’d see all of it was you. And you should know I did everything that I could. I’ll let you go I only wish that I could save you from yourself, save you from your shell. And you should know I did everything, everything. I will let you go. I will let you…go.

 

Beacons - It started as a dream that carried us across the sea. We never really could believe all the different things we’d see. But every now and then a bump appeared around the bend. Cracks appeared in ice too thin and we knew it had to end. It’s been a ride that we won’t soon forget. Wrap our arms tight and we’ll hold on to it. It’s been our light. We were always drawn to it. It lit up the night and gave us what we needed. All these things we will hold on to. We won’t ever let go. Cuz it’s been a ride that we won’t soon forget. Wrap our arms tight and we’ll hold on to it. It’s been our light. We were always drawn to it. It lit up the night and gave us what we needed.

 

P3 - Another trip around the sun ooh will there be another one? Cuz though it feels we’ve just begun hey we could soon be done. Hang on to all you’ve been through. Oh you need to it’s a part of you. All the good things, all the bad things, all the things we couldn’t do. Are we ever who we think we are? Are we ever who we think we are? And though we slowly drift apart we all end up where we start. Should we get lost behind the sun we can catch it on the next one. Hang on to all you’ve been through. Oh you need to it’s a part of you. All the good things, all the bad things, all the things we couldn’t do. Are we ever who we think we are? Are we ever who we think we are? How do we ever?

 

Time to Run – I’ve watched you for so long. You used to be so strong. I threw you a lifeline, you watched it float away. I kept thinking that this time you would look my way cuz I’ve been here all along. I’ve seen you sinking like a stone. There’s nowhere else to go but you run you run you run, now you’re all alone. Now you’re all alone. This is bigger than you, this is bigger than me. There’s nothing left to do, how I wish you could see that I’ve been here all along. I’ve seen you sinking like a stone. There’s nowhere else to go but you run you run you run, now you’re all alone. I think it’s time to run far away.

 

The Only Way Out is Through - I will keep going.

 

Last Summer - I close my eyes and fall asleep. I remember. So why can’t it be like it used to be last summer. But I don’t, I don’t want to be here for you anymore and I won’t, I won’t bleed out for you anymore. Oh where did you go? The one that we used to know? You’ve lost your shine,

you’ve lost your glow. You’re out of time and you need to know that I don’t, I don’t want to be here for you anymore and I won’t, I won’t bleed out for you anymore. How did you ever think all this wouldn’t sink? I’ve done everything now I’m leaving. Time to go.

 

Plutonium - I don’t need your promises cuz I have reached a breaking point with all of this. How could you do to me all that you do to me? Oh it’s so hard. I put it all on the line. I gave you all of my time but I was oh so blind I couldn’t see that this was all one of your lies and by the time I realized I was thrown aside and left to bleed. How could you do to me all that you do to me? Ooh and I hear you’re coming back around again.

 

The Theory of Everything

 

Everything - Well I have no control over the weather and we may not change the world here together but I'm the one who says never say never and we just keep keeping on forever and ever. I want to believe everything will be all right. I can't see how a thing that feels so good could be so wrong. I don't want you to leave because we can stay right here and work things out. I want to believe everything will be all right. We are the ones with so much promise and we are the ones who could rise above it. If we just hold on we can do this. If we just hold on we can make it through this. I want to believe everything will be all right. I can't see how a thing that feels so good could be so wrong. I don't want you to leave because we can stay right here and work things out. I want to believe everything will be all right. We are so close. It's not about what used to be. It's all about what we can be. We won't be stopped by anything because we are everything. Hold on.

 

Home - I will leave the light on until you find your way back home. Days have come and days have gone but I still leave the light on. Forgive me please for what I have done and I will leave the light on. I will leave the light on until you find your way back home. I will leave the light on and wait here all alone. There must have been something that morning. There must have been some kind of warning. Please forgive me for what I have done. I will leave the light on until you find your way back home I will leave the light on and wait here all alone. Forgive me please and come back home.

 

Ordinary - You did the best that you could. Better than anyone else thought you would. You never quite understood why it was anyone's concern. You never wanted to be like them. You never wanted to let them in. You never crossed all the lines they blurred. You never wanted to hear these words: Don't you want to be something? Don't you want to be something else? Don't you want to be something? Don't you want to be something else? You never asked for anything. You never asked for help from anyone. You never wanted it to be like this no you never wanted to hear these words: Don't you want to be something? Don't you want to be something else? Don't you want to be something? Don't you want to be something else? No one wants to be ordinary. No one wants to be ordinary. You're alive. The thing you want the most you're alive. The thing you want the most close your eyes. Don't you want to be something? Don't you want to be something else? Don't you want to be something?

Don't you want to be something else? No one wants to be ordinary. No one wants to be like you.

 

The sky is falling - The sun is not shining down on you. The stars will not make your dreams come true because a dark cloud follows you. A dark cloud won't let you through but it's all on you. It's all on you. The sky is falling. The sky is falling down on you. It's all on you. Can you hold on tight until the storm is gone? Can you hold on tight because there's nothing wrong? It's all on you. Can you fight the fight until the storm is gone? Can you fight the fight when there's nothing wrong? It's all on you. It's all on you. The sky is falling, falling. The sky is falling, falling. The sky is only falling because you want it to.

 

Stay - Stay, I wish you'd stay with me as all this starts burning and falls into the sea. I wish you'd stay here with me. Stand, stand with me as all the world stops turning and falls into the sea. I wish you'd stand here with me. All this was for nothing if you won't stay here with me. I wish you could see. We thought all was forever. We fought and all go down together. All was for nothing. All was for nothing. But we can fix it if we make it through this so stay here with me.

 

What Would You Say - If you could leave what would you take away? Would you leave everything behind or would you just leave? If you could see would you see anything? Would you see anything at all? Would you believe? If you could break away would you learn anything or would you make the same mistakes? Would you just fade away? What would you say if you could say anything? What would you say if you could say anything? If you could change would you change anything? Would you change anything at all? What would you change? If you could break away would you learn anything or would you make the same mistakes? Would you just fade away? What would you say if you could say anything? If you could change would you change anything? What would you say? What would you say to me?

 

Now - I can't remember just what we used to be and I don't know what to say. I can't remember. Now is all I can see. Now is all I can see. I may not remember but now is not everything. I may not remember but will you hold on to me? In the cloudy days within my mind, a ray of sunshine and now I'm blind. And though it slowly drifts on by I remember one last time. . I may not remember but now is not everything. I may not remember but will you hold on to me? Will you hold on to me?

 

Rainy Days - So you found a better place. I can't say the same. It's hard to see how you've progressed when you're so clear to blame. Forgive forget or so I'm told. Forgive forget I don't think so. Your truths they are so evident in the smile I see on your face. By laying down your memory it's better for me. What it is what it was what it could be. What it is what it was what it should be. Forgive forget I don't think so.

 

Tonight - I can't believe. I can't believe anything. I can't believe anything at all I'm hearing from you but I guess that it's true. There's nothing that I can do. There's nothing that I can do to change what happened to you. But I think I'm all right. I think I'm on fire tonight. I think I can fly away and leave this all behind. Yeah I think I'm all right. I feel so alive inside. I just want to fly away to leave this all behind and forget about tonight. Forget about everything. Forget about everything that I'm hearing from you because I guess that it's true. There's nothing that I can do. There's nothing that I can do to change what you're going through. But I think I'm all right. I think I'm on fire tonight. I think I can fly away and leave this all behind. Yeah I think I'm all right. I feel so alive inside. I just want to fly away and leave this all behind and forget about tonight. Forget about the dreams we left behind. Forget about the years we've lost in time. Forget about the way we lived our lives and forget about tonight.

 

Here We Are - Here we are. We're not running again. It seems we're part of a vicious game. We run, we run, we run but it all stays the same so we're done, we're done, we're done, we face our mistakes. Here we are again. Here we are we are we are. We won't leave behind what we've done. We won't leave behind a golden sun and if we find that we're done we won't run. Here we are again. Here we are we are we are. We face the choice that we made and we take the chance again. We won't make the same mistakes.

 

Carry On - We're standing in the ashes of another broken dream but let me hear you say it now it's not the death of me. We gather all that's left of it and put it on a shelf and one day we'll look back on this to remember how it felt. Yeah. And we may need to remind ourselves that we wouldn't have it any other way. And no matter how the hand was dealt it gets better every day. Yeah. Oh because no matter how the hand was dealt it gets better every day. Carry on. Carry on you know we will, you know we will. So we pick it up where we left off and taste the dirt and brush it off. We know enough is never enough and we go on. Carry on. Carry on you know we will, you know we will.

 

The Stars - I see the way you hold the light. I see the way you hold it tight. I see you swim against the tide. I see the way it makes you shine. Hold on to everything that you are. Hold on. Don't ever let them tear you apart and I'll see you. I can see the light. I can see the light and I won't fight. I can hold it tight. I can hold it tight and I take flight. Hold on to everything that you are. Hold on. Don't ever let them tear you apart and I'll see you in the stars.

 

Bittersweet

 

Holding On - I'm skating around on thin ice without you. I'm choking on a fog of lost communication. I'm standing in a line that never ends and I don't know where to begin. How did I end up in this situation? I, I'm holding on tight but I'm not going to wait forever no I'm not going to wait forever. I, I'm holding on tonight but I'm not going to wait forever no I'm not going to wait forever. I can't figure out any of the words that leave your mouth but I can't live without so I endure this journey south. You can, you will and I'll be here when you change your mind. I, I'm holding on tight but I'm not going to wait forever no I'm not going to wait forever. I, I'm holding on tonight but I'm not going to wait forever no I'm not going to wait forever. You were supposed to be the one. You were supposed to be the one. I don't know if I can hold on now for too much longer. I don't know if I can hold on now for too much longer.

 

Sweet Silence - Stand in sweet silence and stare into nothing. How long must I be strong and how long will I feel wrong? Stripped of all my reliance and left with all my imperfections, a desperate performance in this venue of sweet silence. How long must I be strong and how long will I feel wrong? In sweet silence I'll be here in sweet silence.

 

Waiting - Another day of waking up without you by my side - I never should have let you walk away but I was lost I was confused. I'll be waiting for you but I understand. I'll be hoping you'll forgive but I will understand. I never will forgive myself for treating you the way I did and here I am all alone but I know I'm the one to blame. I'll be waiting for you but I understand. I'll be hoping you'll forgive but I will understand. I will understand but I'll be here. I - I'll be waiting. I - I'll be hoping. I will understand but I will be waiting.

 

Innocent - I wish you could tell me what I've done and I wish you could tell me before I run. But I can't help feel like I'm innocent. No I can’t help feel like I'm innocent. I'm in too deep there's no way out, there's no way out. I'm in too deep and it's over now, it's over now. It's over now. I guess I didn't see we'd gotten so bad

and I guess I didn't see you'd gotten so sad. But I can't help feel like I'm innocent. No I can't help feel like I'm innocent. I'm in too deep there's no way out, there's no way out. I'm in too deep and it's over now, it's over now. It's over now. It's all said and done. We erase all we've done. We dream of anything and time heals everything, everything.

 

CU Soon NY - I'll see you soon New York

 

When - I don't know where I'm going to and I don't know where I've been. I don't know just what I'm looking for but I know one thing for sure. I'll be screaming aloud when I get there like I'm coming alive for the first time. Had my head in the clouds for way too long so I'll be screaming aloud will you hear me? The seasons change the sky turns to gray. I can't find a word that's left to say. I can't wait around here in this place anymore but I know one thing for sure. I'll be screaming aloud when I get there like I'm coming alive for the first time. Had my head in the clouds for way too long so I'll be screaming aloud will you hear me. I don't know how to get there and I don't know where to start but I can't bare to be here when it falls apart. It falls apart. When. But I know one thing for sure.

 

Wheels - I think I'm lost again and I don't know where I am. I don't know what world I'm in and I don't know where I've been. I don't know what time it is or what to make of this. It seems like such a mess and full of ugliness. Still I have to smile. Still I have to smile. And so I drive asleep at the wheel and run from all that seems too real. I carry myself to a far away land and dream of all that could have been. Still I have to smile. Wheels keep turning and I've kept learning. Behind this fortress this all hurts me less so I have to smile. So I have to smile. And so I drive asleep at the wheel and run from all that seems too real. I carry myself to a far away land and dream of all that could have been. I've got nothing but time and an open road. I can stay within the lines with my eyes closed. I can read all the signs like an open book.I know where this is going and I'd rather not look. And so I drive asleep at the wheel and run from all that seems too real. I carry myself to a far away land and dream of all that could have been. And dream on. And dream on. So I have to smile.

 

Bittersweet - So long it's over. You're so wrong you know but I'm tired. See only what you want to see and it's never good for me but you go on and on and on. To be what I want to be it was best for me to move on and on and on. I feel bittersweet but it's what I need. See only what you want to see and it's never good for me but you go on and on and on. To be what I want to be it was best for me to move on and on and on. It's what I need and it's best for me. Yeah it's what I need. Now I can see over and over and over. It's what I need.

 

Goodbye - Where were you when I needed you? You left me here for dead. Where were all your promises? You walked away instead. How do you feel now, how do you feel? How do you feel now, how do you feel? You were long gone when I needed you the most but I dug my way out of a hole once filled with hope. I wanted to trust you I wanted to believe but I don't see you caring about what you did to me. So how do you feel now, how do you feel? How do you feel now, how do you feel now? I'm left with piece of mind and feeling ok cuz the only fault of mine I was guilty of faith. I put in my time now there's nothing left to say so this is goodbye and I'm on my way. I'm on my way.

 

Line Stepper - Choose your words wisely cuz I've heard them all before trust me. I've seen you blindly digging yourself a new grave. It's the old you I knew was just beneath the surface and it would choke you out once the new you had surfaced it's purpose. I've seen you cross the line now you're running low on time. I've seen you cross the line have you lost you mind? There's a screw or two loose that's obvious and it's all I can do to save this face but shame on me for taking us back to this place. I've seen you cross the line now you're running low on time. I've seen you cross the line have you lost you mind? It's the same old thing it's what you do but I'm not running away from you. I've seen you cross the line now you're running low on time. I've seen you cross the line have you lost you mind?
