Track Name: In the Beginning
In the beginning of a wounded man
Things could fall or things could stand around me
In the beginning of a suffering heart
I lost my place but I found the part for me

In my world crashing, world falling down
My world crashing straight to the ground

In the middle of a restless soul
I'm looking for some things I'd like to know about me
In the middle heart of trusting heart
I found the place where I'm ripped apart by you

In a world crashing, world coming down
A world crashing without a sound

In the end when the story is told
Will you be looking for a heart of gold in me
In the end when I take the stand
To testify about the wounded man

Will this fade away...
Track Name: I Don't Mind the Rain
Catch a falling dream, put it in your soul
Catch this fallen man, bring him in from the cold

And I'm sweeping up the memories from a life filled with pain
I'm dreaming about these mysteries again and again
The sun's behind the clouds now but I won't complain
No I don't mind the rain
No I don't mind the rain

And when you're through with me
Send me back home again
It's a beautiful release
From everything that we had planned

On the road to regret it's a breakneck speed
If I could just slow down and see the things I don't need
Reach out to the mirror see the face that's the same
Reach down to the ground and lift me up again
Track Name: Terms and Unconditions
Headed west across the sky
Can't stop the tears coming to my eyes
All wrapped up in baby blues
I've got nothing, yet everything to lose

The day you lost was the day you found
What it takes to burn it down
Now ashes blow into the wind
Your frozen tears will thaw again

Can you read the terms and unconditions
That are written in my heart
Can you accept the terms and unconditions
I am here to blow your world apart

I felt your heart from days of old
And now the story never will be told
Our voices lift into the void
Look at all that's been destroyed

Can you read the terms and unconditions
That were written in my heart
You couldn't read the terms and unconditions
I was here to blow your world apart

Can you read the terms and unconditions
That were written in my heart
Can you accept the terms and unconditions
I just want to blow your world apart
Track Name: Again
Empty, empty again – My face to the wall, my back to the plane
Goodbye, my keys are turned in – Spent all I had left
Empty again


Never was the one to say I love you
Never was the one to say I care
Now I find myself wishing again

Frozen, frozen again – My feet on the stones, my mind on the pain
Can I lose more than I've already lost
My heart has gone missing in the cold northern rain

Can I be the one to say I love you
Let me be the one to say I care
Your eyes they cut me but there's numbness there

Leaving, I'm leaving again – all I have left is all that remains
Here now, confusion sets in
All I can say is that I'm wishing again

Wishing I was the one to say I love you
Wishing I was the one to say I care
Bottled up goodbyes are simply waiting again
Goodbyes are waiting again
Goodbyes are waiting
Goodbye
Track Name: I'm Still Here
You know, it's soul
Gotta know, how I roll
One day, you came
Put the silence to my shame

Now the fear, coming near
Kick the darkness back outta here
Up hill, down hill
Had my fill of the bitter pill

Some days, can't explain
All the things that are in my brain
So tough, had enough
Crawling out from beneath the dust

I'm tired, so tired
Pick me up babe, feed the fire
Come far, here we are
Bleed the truth from my guitar

Been around, I've found
Never gonna, back down
Been bought, been sold
Don't let them tell you that you're too old

Uptown, downtown
Everything comes back around
It's the same, every day
Take my heart, take the pain

Wake up, rise up
Take the cup, it's not enough
I'm here, still here
Driving blind but things are clear
Track Name: Any Minute Now
Any minute now, I'll be waking up
Any minute now, I'll remember my dreams
Any minute now, you'll walk back in the room
Any minute now, I'm gonna run out that door

Any minute now, I'm gonna fly like a bird
Any minute now, I'm gonna lay down this cross
Any minute now, I'm gonna sink like a stone
Any minute now, I'll be back on my knees

Don't turn me down, Don't turn me down
Just turn me up, It's the sound...

Any minute now, I'll know who you are
Any minute now, I'll remember who I am
Any minute now, I'll believe there's a love
Track Name: Pushing Away
Can you hear me now? It's the same old thing
Can I make it up somehow? I still feel the sting
It's the same old sound ringing in my ears
You tell me no but I don't want to hear
Are you satisfied you finally got your way
I want you back but you just kept on pushing away...

It's written in the books; In the tears of time
The foundation shook but you heard no cryin'
In the destruction zone you took your place
You saw the pain scribbled on my face
It's over now you can go your way
You needed a love but you just kept on pushing away...

I'll be back again, just wait and see
At the place and time you won't expect to see
I will undo your heart, possess your soul
Change your name, from days of old
And you will see me now in a different way
Will you love me then or will you keep on pushing away...
Track Name: The Master Plan
When I was a boy didn't ever feel
There was any way to become a man
Fighting with the past, sleeping on the future
Presently outrun to my master plan

Years fall so far behind me
They'll never find me where I am
Faces so close together
Tell me I'm never who I am

Then you came along showed me how to feel good
Was there any way you would stay around
Fighting with the boy, sleeping with the future
Pulled me by the hand 'til we ran aground

Years fell so far behind us
They'll always find us where we are
Faces so close together
Tell me I'm never who I am

Lead me to light

Years that come up behind me
No longer remind me of who I was
Faces so close together
Are starting to weather from the storm

Lead me to light
Track Name: Too Late
I can't stay long where the sound of chaos reigns
Last call shut it down, leave the way I came
I can't stay long looking right at you
You penetrate my soul tell me what I know is true

And it's too late to call it a night
My heart breaks down in the cold moonlight
And it's too late for flowers to bloom
Chances are that chances won't come again soon

I'm tired of this; tired of playing God
Tired of mending fences that never should have been broken at all
You can have all of me if that makes any sense
Promises are like rainbows, you sit and wonder where they went

And it's too late to call it a night
My heart breaks down in the pale moonlight
And it's too late for flowers to bloom
Chances are that chances won't come again soon
Track Name: Nothing Else
Take a step back in time
Looking around for the things I can't find
I see shadow of me, a shadow of you

Two kids that I can't recognize
Trying to figure out what is right
But they're a shadow of me, a shadow of you

I'm waking up – There's nothing else
Opening my eyes – There's nothing else
Clearly seen – you right in front of me
And I see – There's nothing else

Our minds take the reins
While our hearts try to keep it sane
But there's a shadow of me, a shadow of you

Nothing else I wanted to do
But to feel the deepness of you
But there's a shadow of me, a shadow of you

We're finding a new way
Pushing us on these days
Our pincushion heart cannot take anymore
Track Name: Ghost
Once upon a time
A story crossed my heart and hoped to fly
And suddenly I saw
The living breathing me and I don't know know why

Your love is a ghost that passes right through me
Your love is a ghost that passes right through me

Colors of my life
Painted by numbers
Then you walked across my dream
Now I'm only left to wonder ('cause)

Your love is a ghost that passes right through me
Your love is a ghost that passes right through me

And you can clear the way
For a life, for a risking
But when the music plays
Will you still be listening?
I'll still be listening

Whispers of a love
But the story went missing
The poet's voice is still heard
Through the lips he still keeps kissing
