Track Name: Run Flying
c'mon my dark rapunzel let down your hair
and i can show you a new life far away from there
and we can spin through your city via truth or dare
and i will make you mine
or die trying

i know they've kept you locked up in that tower of theirs
and you've been fearing your insanity for years
but your life is anxious knowing its beginning is near
and you will be just fine
or die trying
we'll run flying

work with me
now's not the time for hide and seek
or is it?
or is it?

put on your best shoes
and lets make a run for it
we don't need wings to get us to cloud 9
all we need is the sky
so if you're aching to fly
hold on
we'll run flying
or die trying

i know there's still a mystery outside these walls
and it will light your fire if you just make the call
but it won't be worth your while unless you risk it all
so c'mon, walk the line
or die trying
we'll run flying

work with me
there's still an untold story waiting for you
for you

put on your best shoes
and lets make a run for it
we don't need wings to get us to cloud 9
all we need is the sky
so if you're aching to fly
hold on

put on your best shoes
and lets make a run for it
we don't need wings to get us to cloud 9
all we need is the sky
so if you're aching to fly
and if you're willing to jump
if destination is up
hold on
we'll run flying
or die trying
Track Name: Say
they say you bought a one-way
and then you took the red-eye
i guess this means that you've finally moved on
and i bet the wind is on your back
and the sun is on your pretty face
'cause you always find your way

and if i had it all my way
you'd come crawling back today
i think we both know
that there's nothing left
there's nothing left to say

i used to miss your good days
quickly forgot your cruel ways
i know it's time now to bravely soldier on
besides, i know she suits you best
foolish me, i held you tight like sand
and you always find your way

and if i had it all my way
you'd come crawling back today
i think we both know
that there's nothing left
there's nothing left to say
say

well cities rise and cities fall
and people run before they crawl
i doubt our answers lie in a knock down drag out fight

but if i had it all my way
you'd come crawling back today
i think we both know
that there's nothing left
there's nothing left to say
say

there's nothing left to...
Track Name: Fury of 1,000 Suns
it started slow without a warning
and it caught my eye
it caught my eye
but it hit us hard on tuesday morning
there was no fight
there was no fight

and the people on streets, out on buses, on feet
they don't understand how precious life really is
and they fall
and if you really knew how fast life comes unglued
we'd all be underneath of the things we believe
and stop stalling

oh, but i didn't get to say goodbye
and the best of me is by your side

it's the fury of a thousand suns
welled inside
all welled inside
and i'll never be able to run
this doesn't hide
it doesn't hide

oh and the way things will change in the blink of an eye
will bring you to your knees without reason or why
and you fall
and they, "say keep pushing on
you can do this, you're strong."
but if you're where i stand you would know that
i can't stop stalling

does everything fall apart
does everything break your heart
like it does me
in the final scene

oh, but i didn't get to say goodbye
and the best of me is by your side
Track Name: Come Back To Me
can't believe it's been a year
it seems like just yesterday
although this time has passed
i doubt the grief ever will

i see you smiling in my sleep
i hear you laughing in my dreams
i wish i didn't wake to find you'll never return
sometimes i wish i never woke at all

that icy morning when you left
it took a piece right out of me
and now i ache to close my eyes
i still live for nights like this

i see you smiling in my sleep
i hear you laughing in my dreams
i wish i didn't wake to find you'll never return
sometimes i wish i never woke at all

come back to me
come back to me
oh that smile it breaks my heart now
your memory's safe with me

i see you smiling in my sleep
(come back to me)
and i hear you laughing in my dreams
(come back to me)
i wish i didn't wake to find you'll never return
i wish i never woke at all
i wish i never woke at all
Track Name: The Fall
i close my eyes
i let go
it's no surprise
what's down below

i feel scared
i feel free
it's time to find
what's made of me
what's made of me
what's made of me
Track Name: Your Last Song
this is your last song
i've wasted so much of my life just singing 'bout
an unworthy cause
and bitchin' 'bout how if you'd just grow up
we can mend things between us after all

i remember when you said,
"honey, you're what i'm going to want."
and i held tight to that imaginary person you had just made up

but the window is closed now and your time's run dry
and i have laid my best excuses out for the child in you to defy
but see it's been too hard and too long
and this battle can't be won
yeah, it's been too hard and too long and i'm done

you see, i'm at a loss for what to do
i've grown tired of chasing the good in you
and you say nobody knows you at all
but i think i do
and it's been so long now since i've heard your voice
and you would think that i had given up and made myself a choice
but see i'm different than anyone you've met
'cause i've been to hell and back
and giving chances out is my best way to cut myself some slack
but it's been too hard and too long and this battle can't be won
yeah, it's been too hard and too long and i'm done
i'm done

see i forgive you
(i forgive you)
yeah i forgive you
i forgive you
(i forgive you)
yeah i forgive you
Track Name: Free Bird
it's not your fault that you're pretty
and it's not your fault you breathe love
you can't help the way that you feel day to day
always running and not knowing what from
but i guess that's the way that you like it
i suppose that's the way that you live
but damn you for making your way to my heart
always taking, unwilling to give

it's a complicated web you weave
you start but you don't finish
and every time i turn around
you're here then you're gone

oh, free bird
where are you going, you're wayward
so far from hanging on my words
so far from hanging on anything, anything, anything
free bird
slow down for a minute, you're tired
must be nice to be desired
must be nice to hold the world in the palm of your hands
(free bird don't fly)
but i'm still your biggest fan

well it's been a while since i've seen you
but i know without doubt, you're just fine
and someday i know i'll be turning my head
to your smile when the stars all align
but i have to admit that i'm broken
i wish i could keep you in my grasp
feel the sun on your face
by your side place to place
finally feeling that something could last

it's a complicated web you weave
you start but you don't finish
and every time i turn around
you're here then you're gone

oh, free bird
where are you going, you're wayward
so far from hanging on my words
so far from hanging on anything, anything, anything
free bird
slow down for a minute, you're tired
must be nice to be desired
must be nice to hold the world in the palm of your hand
(free bird don't fly)

free bird
where are you going, you're wayward
so far from hanging on my words
so far from hanging on anything, anything, anything
free bird
slow down for a minute, you're tired
must be nice to be desired
must be nice to hold the world in the palm of your hand
must be nice to hold the world in the palm of your hand
(free bird don't fly)
but i'm still your biggest fan
Track Name: Take Me
the summer's fading and i'm waiting for you
to blow back into town with the gusty winds
of these blackened clouds
the sun is setting on the second chapter of
the loneliest day i've spent since you walked out

you take, you take, you take me
you shake, you shake, you shake me
you break, you break, you break me
life's too short to fake it
you take, you take, you take me
you shake, you shake, you shake me
you break, you break, you break me
life's too short to fake it

i'm rooted firmly in your palm
and wrapped so tightly around your finger that i can't relax
and now i'm waiting on a fruitless call you've placed
pretending that this time is different than the last

you take, you take, you take me
you shake, you shake, you shake me
you break, you break, you break me
life's too short to fake it

and you're the reason why i hung my pride to dry
and if i could rearrange your face and laugh
you're not worth it

you take, you take, you take me
you shake, you shake, you shake me
you break, you break, you break me
life's too short to fake it
you take, you take, you take me
you shake, you shake, you shake me
you break, you break, you break me
life's too short to fake it

you take me
(you take, you take, you take me)
you shake me
(you shake, you shake, you shake me)
you break me
(you break, you break, you break me)
you're not worth it
Track Name: Scars
she's the girl in the back row to the left of who she wants to be
oh, and she's the sweetest forgotten surprise in this life we lead
and the mirrors don't do justice to the girl inside fighting to breathe
she's looking for something, she's fighting for something
to believe

and she sings...

colour me wonderful
make me feel beautiful
send out my heart to the see
oh, this life's a reflection of me
but it's so hard to be anything
least of all free of me

well the years weren't forgotten, they were built up beneath all her tears
but she came into realizing insecurity caused her fears
she's since grounded her anger and is able to look in the mirror
it's far from all over, she knows it's not over
she believes

"it's ok," she says
"it's all up here in my head.
these are all things we deal with inside
you've gotta help me find pride
and find out where i've been."

and she sings...

colour me wonderful
make me feel beautiful
send out my heart to the sea
oh, this life's a reflection of me
but it's so hard to be anything
least of all free of me

and she's washing her of these memories
she's turning from all of the doubt
she's filling up all the emptiness
the scars changed her life and she's coming around
and she's washing her of these memories
she's turning from all of the doubt
she's filling up all the emptiness
the scars changed her life and she's coming around

the colour is wonderful
i made me beautiful
heart, come on in from the sea
oh, this life's a reflection of me
but these scars help me be something
finally all of me
Track Name: Silver Lining
hit me hard i'll be alright
i need to know that i'm alive tonight
'cause i've been shooting blanks for so long
i'm all gone
starting to think my eyes just won't believe the light

but i'm still in here
i know the pain and fear
of feeling like i'll disappear beneath the weight of
never finding
my silver lining
of never finding
my silver lining

i mount my errors on the wall
so nobody has to guess who made them all
and every time i think i'm lifting above me
i forget there's always something to keep me small

but i'm still in here
i know the pain and fear
of feeling like i'll disappear beneath the weight of
never finding
my silver lining
never finding
my silver lining

turn my head off
shut my mouth
i've never known what letting go feels like
and all i've ever wanted
is to know that something bigger's
got my back
yeah, keeping me in sight

but i'm still in here
i know the pain and fear
of feeling like i'll disappear beneath the weigh of
never finding
my silver lining
of never finding
my silver lining
Track Name: Ache
i'm so sorry
for what you're going through
that i cannot make it easier
i know the pain it eats you 'till you're black and blue
and all the voices
that fill your head up
they follow me, they follow you
they make it so hard to see the truth

but it's a long way down
from this place we found
no more solid ground for us

and i ache for you
i ache for you
i ache for you, my love
i ache for you
i ache for you
i ache for you, my love

and i've been there
yeah, i'm still there
trying hard to push away all of the memories and mistakes
that made our pages tear

but it's a long way down
from this place we found
no more solid ground for us

and i ache for you
i ache for you
i ache for you, my love
please believe me
i ache for you
i ache for you
i ache for you, my love

i don't want you to be alone
while you're at the end of your rope
'cause there's only so much self sacrifice
that one can take
and this road that you're lookin' on
there isn't a right or wrong
way to go if you stop looking back
and move forward to get back on track
so we can believe

that i ache for you
i ache for you
i ache for you, my love
Track Name: Another Day/Stand (hidden track)
it's been a long time since i've felt this way
i keep on looking at the world in shades of grey
just can't seem to get my emotions back
and turn all this anger away
but i am growing stronger every day

about a year ago i did some things
i wanted nothing to do with everything
i thought that someone could fix me and so i tried
to find that they would cause me more pain
trust me i know that your story's the same

and now that it's done
i feel the temperature risin' on my new horizon
and starting right now
i'm throwing all of this baggage away for another day
now that you're gone away
i can say
it's another day in another life for me
for me
yeah, it's another day in another life for me

life looks a lot different through jaded eyes
you know it kills me inside to not be able to stop these lies
you know it's just who we are
but i am looking for difference
searching out something more

hey solitude why don't you get me in the mood
'cause this play by play feels like a movie
oh, what's done is done
i know i'm not the only one
but i'm forcing myself to move on

and now that it's done
i feel the temperature risin' on my new horizon
and starting right now
i'm throwing all of this baggage away for another day
now that you're gone away
i can say
it's another day in another life for me
for me
yeah, it's another day in another life for me
