about

My sophomore release. A step forward from my first album but still leaves quite a bit to be desired in production values. There are several great songs here that I would love to record properly someday. Perhaps a bit too long at 14 tracks, but many of the best tracks are on the second half. A very diverse record that covers many styles. Hopefully everyone can find something they like on this one.

Track Name: In the Beginning...
In the beginning it was you and I
Walking down the road together
And yet the future was so hard to find
Could we make this last forever?

Imagination opens up the door
You and I we just walk through
Who knows what the future has in store?
But I'll be fine if I'm with you

With all the things that could go wrong along the way
We can make this last forever anyway
I promise I won't change my mind

What would I be without you here with me?
What would I do without you?
'Cause looking back now it is plain to see
I'd be nothing here without you

Sometimes we sit and watch our dreams roll by
We don't dare reach out to grab them
But not this time because both you and I
We decided we could have them

With all the things that could go wrong along the way
We will make this last forever anyway
I promise I won't say goodbye

In the beginning
It was you and me together
And in the middle
We can help each other bear the weather
And in the end
We will make this last forever

Take my hand
And I will never leave you alone again
Take my hand
And I will never leave you alone

Take my hand
And I will never leave you alone again
Take my hand
And I will never leave you alone

Take my hand
And I will never leave you alone again
Take my hand
And I will never leave you alone
Track Name: Dream With Me
With all of the twists and turns
That have come my way
The biggest surprise of them all
Was when you said you'd stay

You came down
From a shimmering sky
I came around
But it took me awhile

What can I say to explain this away?
What can I do except give my whole life to you?

You've taken the parts
Of my broken heart in your hands
And I don't know how to explain
How you put them together again

It was you
Who showed me the light
And it was you
Who made everything alright

What can I say to explain this away?
What can I do except give my whole life to you?

So dream with me
Just for a little while
And dream of what will be
In just a little while

Can you help me now
I'm falling down again?
Can you teach me how
To dream again?

So dream with me
Just for a little while
And dream of what will be
In just a little while

And in the end
You're always a friend
Please understand
I'm dreaming again

And in the end
You're always a friend
Please understand
I'm dreaming again

And in the end
You're always a friend
Please understand
Track Name: Love Lights
You took me by the hand
And this is how it all began
We didn't know it then
But this was never gonna end

So show me what's inside
I want to know what's on your mind
I'm gonna be the one
Who takes your precious time

'Cause when the love lights up your eye
Like nothing I have ever seen before
I've gotta let you know
I'll never let you go

So where do we go now
That I have finally come around
And my feet are planted firmly on the ground

I thought that things were fine
Until you laid it on the line
And I realized I was wasting too much time

'Cause when the love lights up your eye
Like nothing I have ever seen before
I've gotta let you know
I'll never let you go

Your the reason I lie awake at night
You turn the darkness into light
And I promise you I'll make it right

So here we are once again
Now you're more than just a friend
And I can rest my weary body next to you

And I believe in you
And you believe in me
And this is how it's gonna be

From now until eternity
Track Name: That Night Back In June
You gave it away for a moment
I could see it there in your eyes
The things that you said made sense to me
Somehow I knew you were right

Walking home beneath street lights
Dragging my heart on the ground
Knowing this love I've just thrown away
Is the best love that I've ever found

But I left you alone that night back in June
To cry yourself to sleep
I didn't love you enough to stay by your side
But I loved you enough to leave

Lying awake I can see you
Wondering how you'll get by
But the truth is you'll be fine without me
But without you I think I might die

So what can be said of emotion
And surely I've been overcome
'Cause if this feeling I've got is the right one
Then what I've just done is wrong

'Cause I left you alone that night back in June
To cry yourself to sleep
I didn't love you enough to stay by your side
But I loved you enough to leave

(Chorus x2)

I loved you enough to leave
I loved you enough to leave
I loved you enough to leave
I loved you enough to leave

And I loved you enough to come back again
Track Name: Now I Understand
I thought I knew what love was all about
So I waited for something I could do without
I realize there's things I've yet to figure out
But I've got to pour my heart out

Cause now I understand
It was part of a bigger plan
So take me as I am
Cause now I understand

I think there's something that I ought to tell you
I want to be with you forever more
I know I said alot of other things
When I first walked out your door

But now I understand
I was part of a bigger plan
You're more than just a friend
And now I understand

I just couldn't sleep at night
Can I take the things done wrong
And make them right
And make them right

(solo)

I'm trying hard to find the words to tell you
I miss you more than you could ever know
Please tell me all the things you've kept within your heart
And I'll do the same for you

Cause now I understand
It was part of a bigger plan
So take me as I am
Cause now I understand

Now I understand
It was part of a bigger plan
You're more than just a friend
And now I understand

La la la la la la...
Track Name: Remembrance
[Instrumental - No Lyrics]
Track Name: Keep It Safe
I've got something to say that may not or it may
Make you cry
Don't water it down with the water that falls
From the emerald pool of your eye

All the reasons I knew in my heart
I can't recall anymore
You floated your answers in bottles that washed up
On someone elses shore

You were disguised but like dark to blind eyes
You were all I ever knew
Try not to cry as the day turns to night
And the shadow falls around you

Ohhh

If you can walk when you are sleeping
And dream when you're awake
If this thing we've got is worth keeping
Why do you throw it away
Why should you throw it away

So convincing the lie that comes out of your eye
I could follow you down forever
Somewhere deep inside I'm attached to the sky
But for you this line I would sever

You throw words around and they float to the ground
Just as gently, just like a feather
Should those words turn cold they would drop like a stone
And there's no coming back here, no never

Ohhh

If you can walk when you are sleeping
And dream when you're awake
If this thing we've got is worth keeping
Why do you throw it away
Why should you throw it away

Ahhhhhhh...
La la la la la...

Keep it safe
Keep it safe
Lock it away from the world
Keep it safe
Keep it safe
Don't let it show to the world
Keep it safe
Keep it safe
Keep it safe, locked away
In your heart
Keep it safe
Lock it away from the world
Lock it away from the world
Lock it away from the world
From the world
From the world
Track Name: Waking Up
Take your time
Time is all we've got anymore
Take this life
It's all I have to offer

Take my hand
It's open to recieve you now
And I'll take you at your word
You know that I believe you now

And I saw you standing in my doorway
And I told you, told you there was no way
That I would ever leave

What can I say
To make this right again
When all my words
Get in the way of what I really mean

And I hear your words
But I can't hear what you're saying
And if this is just a game
Well then I don't feel like playing...
Anymore

But it's like waking up
In the middle of a dream
And you realize
Nothing's as it seems
And it's like finding out
That the joke has been on you
And you try to laugh it off
But inside it's killing you
Inside it's killing you
Inside it's killing you
Inside it's killing you...

I will make this right
I will make this right again
I will make this right
I will make this right again...
Track Name: Road Less Travelled
Speak up
What was that you said?
Stand up
I can't hear you
Wake up
It's time to roll out of bed
In the end I just want to be near you

You were walking down the road less travelled
I was waiting for the sun to shine again
It just gets colder as your clothes unravel
Keeps you wondering how this might have been

Sometimes I feel like there's a raging gulf between us
Sometimes it feels like you can read my mind
I know you know just exactly what's best for me
I know you know it's just a matter of time
Until we die

You were walking down the road less travelled
I was waiting for the sun to shine again
It just gets colder as your clothes unravel
Keeps you wondering how things might have been

I was lost I was lost and lonely
Guess that's the cost of being the only one
But this time
I'm gonna make it
Make it
Make it
Make it
Make it
Make it
Make it
Make it right

Where can we go to leave a place like this behind us?
Where can we go where no one else will ever find us?
I wanna be there when the sunlight is dawning
I'm gonna be there when you wake up in the morning

There was a time when I could...
Track Name: Lyla In the Middle
Lyla
They say that the thicker the skin
And the harder you try to hide it inside
The softer the heart is within
Lyla
Always waiting for the future to come
Well tonight you hold the future in your arms

Life is a riddle
That's plain enough to see
Sometimes in the middle
Is the hardest place to be

(harmonica solo)

Lyla
You're looking in the mirror
With your grandfathers eyes
You wear your disguise
But they don't help you see any clearer
Lyla
Still waiting for the future to come
Well tonight you hold the future in your arms

Life is a riddle
That's plain enough to see
Sometimes in the middle
Is the hardest place to be

(guitar solo)

Lyla
Always waiting for the future to come
As much as you've tried to leave it behind
The past seems to come right along
Lyla
Yet you wonder what tomorrow will be
When you look into the future What do you see?

Life is a riddle
That's plain enough to see
Sometimes in the middle
Is the hardest place to be
Lyla in the middle
Was the hardest place to be
Track Name: Please Forgive Me
When the rain
Started coming down again
I went insane
But I think I'm coming to around again

Please forgive me
For the things I never should have done
I'm just stuck here
In this web I never should have spun

I can see
You trying to get through to me
I tried to be
Everything you wanted

But I left you all alone that night
And I never meant to make you cry
But I promise you
I never told a lie

Please forgive me
For the things I never should have done
Please untie me
From this web I never should have spun

Can you hear me
Calling out your name once again?
I don't know if it's too late
But I'll wait till the end

And I'm sorry that I left you alone
And I'm coming back to take you home
Again
Again

Is there a way
To take us back to yesterday?
Life was OK
And we didn't even know it

But with the setting sun and change of tides
Everything I wanted in my life
Was left behind
And I'm running out of time

Please forgive me
For the things I never should have done
Please untie me
From this web I never should have spun

Can you hear me
Calling out your name once again?
I don't know if it's too late
But I'll wait till the end

And I'm sorry that I left you alone
And I'm coming back to take you home
Again
Again

Waiting for you to arrive
And take this soul, take this life
Help me reform my mind
And teach me how
To make this right again
Gonna make it right again
Gonna make this right again
Gonna make it right again
Gonna make it right

Please forgive me
For the things I never should've done
Track Name: The Rest of My Life
If I was to try and have it all
I should have started long ago
When we were young, we were young
And the world couldn't tell us "no"

But I've been drifting out at sea
With just the wind to carry me
And I don't know which stars to follow

Things I would have, could've, should've done
If I'd have known when I'd begun
Is it too late to do them now?

'Cause in this race against time
Feel I'm getting far behind
Don't know how to turn this ship around

This may be my only chance to prove
Things I say are the same as the things I do
And the truth is that I love you
And I always will
For the rest of my life
For the rest of my life

Where do I begin to find
The answers that I left behind
The pieces broken on the floor
I can't remember anymore

How can I erase the time that's gone?
Take back the things that I have done?
Or should I just move on?

If I should wash up on your shore
Please take me in and keep me warm
I won't do you any harm

Because this life is the time
To prove that I wasn't lying
And you know that I'm trying

This may be my only chance to prove
Things I say are the same as the things I do
And the truth is that I love you
And I always will
For the rest of my life
For the rest of my life

This may be my only chance to prove
Things I say are the same as the things I do
And the truth is that I love you
And I always will
For the rest of my life
For the rest of my life
For the rest of my life
Track Name: Days End
La la la la la la la...etc.
Track Name: Take Me As I Am
Open up my eyes
And stay with me awhile
I remember now
The way this all began
So please
Take me as I am

Take my hand
If you can
Lift my head up
From where it's been
I remember who I am
I was with you when all of this began
So please
Take me as I am

I am inside out
And I am upside down
I can't defend myself
In this un-ending round
I should have learned to run
Before the race began
And if you can
Please take me as I am

I'll just wait here for the sun to shine again
You always said that you were my best friend
So I need to know, though I've been gone
Can I return into your arms?
I've done my best to make this right again

I was afraid, I was alone
In the rain so far from home
I should have learned to swim
Before the rains began
So if you can
Please take me as I am

And if you can
Take me as I am

Take me as I am
