Track Name: ocean sky (solo version)
swimming in an ocean sky
not a single cloud for at least a hundred miles
a blue that's deeper than my eyes
makes me feel like I could fly

It makes me feel so small
I can see it all
the horizons that surround me
shows everything I couldn't see
Track Name: while i should be sleeping
i've been staying up til 4
writing sad songs about a love i knew before
lost along the way somewhere
i'm fine but sometimes it still hurts me right there
god if you're up there show me a sign
or something that's gonna make me change my mind
i thought i had it all worked out
until my life turned upside down
now i'm trying to find my way
learning how to ignore time slipping away
just when we realize
exactly what we wanted this whole time
it's already way too late
it's too late for me
Track Name: ghosts
I found her in the place I last expected
The place from which she tried to run away
I saw the pictures and I started crying
That was the last time that I felt this way

Chorus
I'm seein' ghosts in the mirror
I saw another life before my eyes
I just want another chance
But I can't turn back time
I have to let it go, but I can't say goodbye

I don't know if I could have made a difference
It's been so long but it still feels like yesterday
There's nothing left for me to hold on to
Except a ream that can never see the light of day

(Chorus)
Track Name: don't lose your way
i come alive
only after i've fallen down so many times
one hard look in the mirror
so hard it makes a sound that only i can hear

it's screaming
screaming at me
tells me what i have to do
to be the man i'm supposed to be

where did it all go wrong
when did i lose my way
if i could see my past self right now
what would he have to say

i've got a gun
pointed at me
the shooter asks for my last words
but i've got nothing to say

i come alive
only after i've fallen down so many times
Track Name: don't let go
I don't recognize your face anymore
show me the one I knew before
I just want to talk to a familiar face again
the one I knew when you were still my friend

you've drifted so far away from me
like the grip i've lost on time
it keeps slipping away
right before my very eyes

don't let go
don't let go
just let me hold on a little longer now
just let me hold on a little longer now

if I can't hold onto everything forever
i'm bound to lose it all someday
and if i'm gonna lose it no matter what i do
I want what I have left to stay

don't let go
don't let go
don't ever let me go
just let me hold on a little longer now
just let me hold on a little longer now
Track Name: seasons
The air gets colder
the months get older
the days get shorter
and I'm still looking for my home

The snow starts melting
the flowers start escaping
the grass turns back to green
and I'm still looking for my home

The days are getting longer
my heart is growing fonder
hoping she's the one I'm supposed to find
and I'm still looking for my home

Once again we're at October
like the air my heart grows colder
I need someone to keep me warm
and I'm still looking for my home

The air gets colder
the months get older
the days get shorter
and I'm still looking for my home
Track Name: ocean sky (full band version)
swimming in an ocean sky
not a single cloud for at least a hundred miles
a blue that's deeper than my eyes
makes me feel like I could fly

It makes me feel so small
I can see it all
the horizons that surround me
shows everything I couldn't see

tired eyes catch a shooting star
the wish that you've been waiting for
the twinkling lights cross the deep blue sky
only when the light of sun meets night
could the darkness be
another symbol to me
not a place of loneliness
but a place where its just me
