Track Name: arms of a lion
i wanna sleep in the arms of a lion
under the open Texas sky
i wanna sleep in the arms of a lion
on ten thousand moonlit nights

i don't know if my words will reach you
or if your heart is open to care
or if your arms are ever reaching
and hoping to find me there

but there's a lover inside me loving
every inch that i've seen of you
every beat of your heart, every well-spoken thought
every note that reminds me of you

i wanna sleep in the arms of a lion
under the open Texas sky
i wanna sleep in the arms of a lion
on ten thousand moonlit nights
Track Name: all the while
he's out looking for something he'll never find
those city streets are calling him
every single night
all the pretty girls, they fall for him
every single night
but they're wanting something they will never find

and all the while
all the while
she's in the background thinking
you can have it all
you can have it all

she's looking in the mirror for something she'll never find
i'm staring but i never see me
she sees an illusion, a physical prison
but her soul
her soul feels pretty and free

and all the while
all the while
he's in the background singing
you can have it all
you can have it all

open your heart
you can have it all
Track Name: side by side
i had a dream we were flying
side by side
our wings were made of the ashes
of a thousand lonesome nights
i had a dream we were flying
side by side

i have a hundred reasons to run away
all i need is one
but this time i don't wanna run
this time i don't wanna run

i had a dream we were dancing
side by side
dressed in red, we were losing our heads
we were feeling so alive
i had a dream we were dancing
side by side

i had a dream we were dreaming
and the dream became our life..
Track Name: all my pieces
i'm alone in crowded corridors
making space for time
i'm hearing a loud persistent voice
a voice that sounds like mine

and it just keeps repeating
it just keeps repeating
everyone has got to go mad
everyone has got to go mad
go mad as soon as possible

it doesn't make any difference
where you are or what you do
or how many times i fall to pieces
because all my pieces are a part of you
all my pieces are a part of you
and you
are a part of me too

and it just keeps repeating
and i just keep breathing
everyone has got to go mad
everyone has got to go mad
go mad as soon as possible
Track Name: waking life
it's been days that i've been watching
a surreal life unfold
moving pictures on eyelids
my eyes when they are closed

though temperatures are falling
and wind is getting cold
i feel my blood is warming
'cause you are coming home

it's been weeks that i've been dreaming
of prophecies untold
prophecies of another world
a world still unknown

though temperatures are falling
and wind is getting cold
i feel my blood is warming
'cause you are coming home

it's been months that i've been knocking
on walls made out of stone
and years that i've been feeling
the beat of my heart alone

but now i feel my blood is warming
'cause you are coming home

i feel my blood is warming
'cause you are coming home.
Track Name: 1967
be still my dear, be still
this love will only grow
beat silently, my heart
he knows he knows he knows

it's the way you sing, you pretty thing
you've trapped me in your glow
it's the way you scream, my vintage queen
it's the way you steal the show

be still my dear, be still
it's time i let you know
if you're not the one for me, my love
then i'm better off alone
Track Name: untitled
quietly the record spins
i'm lying here hypnotized again
paralyzed, again

and i know things aren't as fragile as they sometimes seem
but do you know how it feels to believe
in so many things that can't be seen?
i scan the horizon for a sign, a sense of relief

and i wait for the day to come
Track Name: rush
a rush of blood to the head
this feeling never stops
the fairytale will continue
when you turn off all your thoughts

i softly whisper, "remember me"
when these times have long been gone
whether we run away or surrender
whether this game is lost or won

a rush of blood to the heart
this feeling never stops
this fairytale will continue
when we've turned off all our thoughts
Track Name: bridges
visions of bridges stretch from nightfall to dawn
moving forward gracefully without our headlights on
puzzle pieces hover, then drop down into place
in my mind these visions cannot be erased

visions of bridges stretch from nightfall to dawn
moving forward gracefully without your headlights on
puzzle pieces hover, then fly off into space
in my mind your image cannot be replaced

visions of bridges stretch from nightfall to dawn
moving forward gracefully without our headlights on
puzzle pieces hover, then drop down into place
in my mind these visions cannot be erased

while you're gone i'll be here believing in your sunny day
it cannot be erased
it cannot be erased
Track Name: figure eight
spinning around in circles
our arms stretched out for miles
cross-eyed and dizzy
don't you dare look down

this is just the way it has to be
this is just the way it has to be
don't you dare fall down

climbing toward the sunrise
vines twist into a figure eight
fearless and lovely
they don't dare look down
don't you dare look down
don't you dare fall down
Track Name: waking up from death
i'm losing all the things i never wanted to keep
it's like waking up from death again to breathe
all the ghosts are gone now, the slate has been wiped clean

so ride, ride on 'til the monkeys are off your back
he said fly, fly on and don't you ever turn back

you know the freeway is no place for a pair of red balloons to be
but the rebel in you will meet up with the outlaw in me
when living replaces this hot hot air we speak

so ride, ride on 'til the monkeys are off your back
he said fly, fly on and don't you ever turn back
