The breath from your sigh, you could still see in the night air. Floating off, as if, you were never there. As we try to find the words, the distance is hard to see. Should we look past the now and face what will never be. Funny how it all fades away, If I could, don’t think I would, change a thing. Heard from a friend of mine, that you were doing okay. You got married, had a kid, but things didn’t stay that way. I found my way out and got to a good place. It’s from the roads we travel, and not the ghosts we chase. Funny how it all fades away, If I could, don’t think I would, change a thing. Funny how it all fades away, If I could, don’t think I would, change a thing. Funny how it all fades away, If I could, don’t think I would, change a thing. Thought of you yesterday, and I hope you’re doing fine. A memory of you comes to me, from time to time. The pain of heart break, as we learn, goes away. It’s from the roads we travel, and not the ghosts we chase. Funny how it all fades away, If I could, don’t think I would, change a thing. Funny how it all fades away, If I could, don’t think I would, change a thing. Funny how it all fades away, If I could, don’t think I would, change a thing. Funny how it all fades away, If I could, don’t think I would, change a thing.

Disappear 03:41
Let’s get away, she said Take the wheel and head somewhere Plot our course by following the stars. Stay in bed all day Roam the earth like vampires Somehow we’ve forgotten who we are. We could go somewhere we’ve seen in a photograph. We could go to the end of the world, look over and a have good laugh. No place is too far she said, let’s get out of here. Let’s just go. Let’s just disappear. Don’t need a place to stay Make due with what we’ve have Hit the road in your beat up old car. Remembering favorite songs Sing them like it was the last time As if the future wasn’t too far. We could go somewhere we’ve seen in a photograph. We could sit in a bar, drink all night and get nostalgic about the past. Anyplace is fine, she said, let’s get out of here. Let’s just go. Let’s just disappear. Don’t want to be the one that holds you back Just want to see you smile and hear you laugh She said, don’t want be alone, when I get out of here So let’s just go and just disappear Let’s get away, she said Take the wheel and head somewhere Plot our course by following the stars. Remembering favorite songs Sing them like it was the last time As if the future wasn’t so far. We could go somewhere we’ve seen in a photograph. We could go to the end of the world, look over and a have good laugh. Anyplace is fine, she said, let’s get out of here. Let’s just go. Let’s just disappear.

Hello there, it’s been awhile, I hope this finds you well We haven’t spoken much and the distance, Sure is hell Me, well, things aren’t so good Life didn’t turn out like it could There are battles you just can’t win And some are over, before they begin. Don’t forget me, You have a photograph We were standing there. I first made you laugh. Funny how things change and Life goes by so fast. Don’t forget me Sometimes we didn’t see eye to eye, But things like that wouldn’t last Sometimes, we would fight Over spilt milk and broken glass In the end, you were always there Letting me know that you care There are battles you just can’t fight So we go gently, into that good night. Don’t forget me, You have a photograph In it, we were young We thought those times would last Invincible, we seemed and The world was in our grasp Don’t forget me Sometimes we get lost And we can’t find our way Then through the clouds we see A brighter day Sometimes we get lost And we can’t find our way Then through the clouds we see A brighter day Don’t forget me, You have a photograph In it, we were young We thought those times would last Invincible, we seemed and The world was in our grasp Don’t forget me

Rewind 04:21
Through red eyes he sees All that he makes believes. In a place that’s safe Where only he escapes Oh and he, he’s not the same Oh, the way forward is not so straight As he lives and breathes The world around him, moves so slow Tries to catch it all In the palm of his hand. Oh and he, he’s not the same Oh, the way back home is not so straight You can’t always take back - the words you say, no A candle can’t always light - the way back home You can’t always take back - the words you say, no A candle can’t always light - the way back home We all get lost inside, sometimes If we could find a way to go back, Rewind He’s a mystery, built on catastrophe We don’t know All the things, that live in his head Oh and he, he’s not the same Oh, the way back is not so straight You can’t always take back - the words you say, no A candle can’t always light - the way back home You can’t always take back - the words you say, no A candle can’t always light - the way back home

Find You 01:49
Beneath the shade of the trees Stop and you can feel the breeze The singing of the birds and bees Feel the grass beneath your feet Forget your troubles and the world around Where you’re at, there are no bounds Close your eyes and you will see, You’re free And I – tried - to find – you.

Sara 03:24
Sara says she don’t know what to do A lot of people right now without a clue Starting things, just so they can see Their smiling faces on TV, well Everyone’s got – their own story to tell They want to go through the dirt - ‘cause they know it’ll sell She’s never thought of the circumstance ‘Round fame and fortune or finding romance Sara says she don’t have time for that And if it comes, she’ll deal with then Everyone’s got – their own story to tell They want to go through the dirt - ‘cause they know it’ll sell Behind those bright eyes, is a place - you can see So quit wasting her time, on things she doesn’t need Sara says she can only be All the things that you can see And that beauty lies in your heart If it’s not, it’ll tear you apart, oh no Everyone’s got – their own story to tell They want to go through the dirt - ‘cause they know it’ll sell Behind those bright eyes, is a place - you can see So quit wasting her time, on things she don’t need She says when we say goodbye No need to shed a tear, no need to cry, no That life's still a mystery That we can be, only who we can be.

In the dark, wide-awake, my mind won’t let me sleep. I close my eyes and try to chase, all these thoughts away. I pray to find solace in your voice, but yet you can’t speak Words can’t describe the price I’ve paid, the will is strong but the flesh is weak. Time to say the words, That I thought I’d never say to you. Time to make that choice, That I thought I’d never have to choose. Time to make my way, make my, way back towards the light. The sum of all my wrongs won’t equal the one thing I got right. Through darkness I try find, an anchor to this place I think I may have been down too long, in a watery grave Like a candle in the dark, you’ve come to light up the way Never before, did I have someone, to hear the words that say Time to say the words, That I thought I’d never say to you. Time to make that choice, That I thought I’d never have to choose. Time to make my way, make my, way back towards the light. The sum of all my wrongs won’t equal the one thing I got right. Time to say the words, That I thought I’d never say to you. Time to make that choice, That I thought I’d never have to choose. Time to make my way, make my, way back towards the light. The sum of all my wrongs won’t equal the one thing I got right.

Please sign this waiver, and we’ll get out of here We’ll pretend we’re pilots, on a rocket ship my dear If your excuse for leaving, is based on your fears Close your eyes and pretend, as we leave the crowd cheers Off into the unknown, is where we’ll go Discovering things, that no one knows So please sign this waiver, and we’ll get out of here Close your eyes and pretend, as we leave the crowd cheers Everything is alright, here we go Off into the great unknown Off into the great unknown Off into the great unknown Please sign this waiver, and we’ll get out of here Close your eyes and pretend, as we leave the crowd cheers Everything is all right, here we go Off into the great unknown Everything is all right, here we go Off into the great unknown Off into the great unknown Off into the great unknown Everything is all right, here we go Off into the great unknown Everything is all right, here we go Off into the great unknown Off into the great unknown Off into the great unknown

In a Moment 03:18
I read a story about woman the other day, Who passed away, unnoticed. She and her family had been at odds, And they had not lately, spoken. It’s what you have; you’re soon to forget When it’s gone, you’re filled with regret It’s what you want, you never seem to find The things you need, have been there all the time He left without saying goodbye, Over things he viewed as broken. As he drove, it was the things he didn’t say, That she’d never know, if she lost him. It’s what you have; you’re soon to forget When it’s gone, you’re filled with regret It’s what you want, you never seem to find The things you need, have been there all the time In a moment, things can change and may never, be the same. In a moment, it all can change and what’s left? What remains? In a moment, things can change and may never, be the same. In a moment, it all can change and what’s left? What remains? It’s what you have; you’re soon to forget When it’s gone, you’re filled with regret It’s what you want, you never seem to find The things you need, have been there all the time Could we go back and change the things we said That hurt the ones, that we love Would sorry be enough to take away the pain If we missed the chance, when they’re gone It’s what you have; you’re soon to forget When it’s gone, you’re filled with regret It’s what you want, you never seem to find The things you need, have been there all the time

Say goodnight The sleep, it comes now You try to fight But you, you can’t win Don’t want to leave Don’t want to leave it all behind But now it’s time It’s time to Close your eyes – just dream Close your eyes – and dream As you lie Count the stars in the sky Go to the place To that place you call home Don’t want to leave Don’t want to leave it all behind Now it’s time It’s time to Close your eyes – just dream Close your eyes – and dream
