Lyrics

Did you ever have to deal with real frustration?

To deal with someone's anger and interrogation-

You want to disappear into obliteration-

The only true escape is through imagination.

 

So I'll breathe in the good air,

And I'll breathe out the old.

Once again I'll start over and I'll try to take the time to live again.

 

Your world exists in black and white,

You suffer from starvation-

Now every time you talk I take a mental vacation-

Reality is for those who lack imagination,

Please take my thoughts into consideration.

 

So I'll breathe in the good air-

And I'll breathe out the old.

Once again I'll start over and I'll try to take the time to live again.

 

Breathe out all the old air, you gotta breathe in all the good-

Breathe out all the old air, you gotta breathe in all the good air.

Lyrics

Start over again…

This journey's ended.

Face the world head on––

There's no turning back,

at all, at all.

No more…no more.

 

Tear the pictures, off the walls.

They've lost their meaning,

when time flew out the door––

Empty boxes, waiting to be filled,

with all the years gone by,

and all the pain you've ever known

at all, at all.

No more…no more.

 

I smell the perfume that defined your scent,

and I'm lost inside my mind.

Remembering times we spent,

when I was young,

and you were still alive.

Too young to die…

 

I'm standing still in this empty room,

before I walk away.

Leaving eighteen years behind,

and one last picture in my mind.

So long…So long.

So long…So long–––

 

Start over again,

This journey's ended.

Face the world head on,

There's no turning back…

Lyrics

So you need to find a way to escape––

Well take your pick,

What will it be?

A movie ticket,

Turn on the TV.

Will it be alcohol, or basketball?

A smoke or two, but between me & you––

Don't do anything I wouldn't do!

 

Well, you need to find a way to escape.

Why don't you take a walk down to the park?

enjoy the scenery, the birds and the trees.

How 'bout a diet coke, a root-beer float, a chocolate cake, a coffee break,

but don't do anything I wouldn't do!

 

So you need to get away for a while,

Take a happy pill, spend your last dollar bill.

Stay out all night, take a midnight flight.

Turn out the lights and dance away the night!

Don't think twice, no one has the right––

To tell you anything you shouldn't do!

Lyrics

Swing sets too small

Suddenly, I can't fly as high––

 

Summers at the lake

Too young to think, things would ever change.

And I lose you one more time, as my memory runs dry.

 

Never said goodbye,

You just always seemed so far away––

And I lose you one more time, when the picture slowly dies…

 

I thought you'd be here forever

Eighteen years ago

I thought you'd be here forever

Eighteen years ago

 

Sweet Sixteen––

What did we have to celebrate?

Not all wishes can come true my first birthday without you

 

I thought you'd be here forever eighteen years ago

I thought you'd be here forever eighteen years ago

I thought you'd be here forever

I thought you'd be here forever

I thought you'd be here forever…

Lyrics

Let’s show all the world the meaning of love,

and what it’s like to be happy.

Come take my hand to another land

where there’s no one but you and me.

 

Let’s run away and let’s dance all through the night

We’ll take a plane and we’ll fly up to the sky

You are the one, you are the one, you are the one for me

 

Let’s go get lost for a while, let’s walk,

together just you and me

With you by my side I finally know what it’s like

to live life happily.

 

Let’s run away and let’s dance all through the night

We’ll take a plane and we’ll fly up to the sky

You are the one, you are the one,

 you are the one for me

 

Let’s run away and let’s dance all through the night

We’ll take a plane and we’ll fly up to the sky

You are the one, you are the one, you are the one for me

Lyrics

How many nights have you lied awake wishing all through the night?

How many times have you been asleep, yet never closed your eyes?

Oh, Annabelle my dear, it’s been a while since you’ve smiled.

I am still with you, even when you close your eyes

I just ran out of time, please don’t stop from living your life

You can’t hold my hand or see my face but I watch you from another place

You’re growing faster with each year. Pretty soon you’ll be on your own

Oh, Annabelle my dear, it’s been a while since you’ve smiled

I am still with you, even when you close your eyes

I just ran out of time, Please don’t stop from living your life

You’ll always have this lullaby to listen to every night

I promised that I’d be with you, so this is what I left behind

Oh, Annabelle my dear, it’s been a while since you’ve smiled

I am still with you, even when you close your eyes

I just ran out of time, Please don’t stop from living your life

Please don’t stop from living your life.

Lyrics

Years of waiting for what could be

Never thought I’d be living in my fantasy

You’re just what I hoped for and even more

You bring me higher and higher and higher

 

At the end of the day I have you to run to

At the end of the day you’re just what I need

When the day is so long and the night drags on

At the end of the- end of the day, you’re mine

 

Something tells me you’re here to stay

Never knew I’d be missing you when you’re away

You’re just what I needed and even more

You bring me higher and higher and higher

 

At the end of the day I have you to run to

At the end of the day you’re just what I need

When the day is so long and the night drags on

At the end of the, end of the day, you’re mine

 

You’re just what I’d hoped for and even more

You bring me higher and higher and higher

 

At the end of the day I have you to run to

At the end of the day you’re just what I need

When the day is so long and the night drags on

At the end of the, end of the day, you’re mine

 

At the end of the, end of the, end of the day

At the end of the, end of the, end of the day

At the end of the, end of day, you’re mine

Lyrics

When you’ve seen so many winters and walked so many miles,

When you’ve lost so many friends and you’ve forgotten how to smile,

And you’ve had to say goodbye one too many times.

The silence is loud and there’s nothing to say.

 

After all, life’s only pretend.

You’re thinking too much now and then.

Watch all of the children at play,

while they dance all around, hear them say––

 

Let’s build a castle, I’ll be the queen

We’ll have silver and gold. We’ll make believe

You be the king and we’ll live happily

 

Are you watching out your window as life passes by?

While the world is turning faster, you’re frozen in time.

Just close your eyes and find a place to hide.

Imagine the place, it’s all in your mind.

 

After all, life’s only pretend.

You’re thinking too much now and then.

Watch all of the children at play,

while they dance all around, hear them say––

 

Let’s build a castle, I’ll be the queen

We’ll have silver and gold.

We’ll make believe.

You be the king and we’ll live happily…

Lyrics

What is that book you carry by your side?

Can I take a look? Can I see what's inside?

'Cause I know that mask you wear

is just a face you share for people to see.

Well you can't fool me!

(sing along) Da Da Da Da.....

 

Thought I knew the stranger sittin' next to me.

He'll dance in the nude, when there's no-

one around to see.

The formal suite he wears is a disguise he shares for people to see.

Well he can't fool me!

(sing along) Da Da Da Da.....

 

And you know that girl who sleeps by your side...

Do you know who she's with when she closes her eyes?

 

Next time he hands you compliments and says, "you look good in black"

just see if his fingers are crossed behind his back.

The compliments he shares today, to your dismay, you'll have to repay!

Yeah, he can't fool me!

(sing along) Da Da Da Da....

(sing along) Da Da Da Da .....

Lyrics

What once was clear to me is now a mystery
Life is so strange I can't explain my history
My heart has locked itself and thrown away the key
My eyes are tired , now I'm blind I cannot see
I shut the door I try to feel
What's left inside my soul that's real
I close my eyes
I try to dream
And so I drink the night away
As the tears I cried begin to fade,, across my soiled face
I feel so Broken
So lost and scared
I'm Broken, my happiness has turned to grey
I'm Broken
So lost and scared
I'm Broken
My happiness has turned to grey
I've been lost inside my skin for years
And somewhere I drowned beneath my tears
I cannot breath
I gasp for air and then I see
The one who cast this spell on me
How could you be so cruel?
From time to time I fall and see
Images of you and me
The past becomes reality
My head i spinning....crazy

Lyrics

Now that time has stumbled on
And many dreams have come and gone
And the nights that stand between us
Have they left you in the dark?
No matter how much you have changed
Deep within you're still the same
Your skin and flesh may be altered
But the skeleton remains
Just whisper my name
Does it still sound the same?
And when all the world is sleeping
Do you dream with me again?
And when you're in your new lovers arms
Do you wonder where I've gone?
And when she's laying fast asleep
Do you regret the promises you'd never keep?

Lyrics

These days I can't even recognize your face
Your eyes, your smile, your cheap embrace seem so strange
Guess I was wrong, 'thought I was so strong.
Could we please get along like before when you listened to every word I
said.

Take me again
to the place where we'd dance
Maybe then I'll see the one I knew before

It's always the same excuse
Red wine tastes oh so good when we're afraid of ourselves.
I know you had too much to drink.
Close your eyes and re-think what you're doin' here with me.

Take me again
to the place where we'd dance
Maybe then I'll see the one I knew before

Lyrics

Somewhere deep within we all possess an angelic side
You may be a devil but I see the angel in your eyes
I can see the beauty in your eyes
I can sense your longing to be free
Escape the chains of torment
And run, run away with me
Built up anger from years ago controls your fragile soul
Escape the demon, run away from this dark desolate hole
Fight your past and leave it all behind
And don't let it control your soul,body, and mind
You transfer your hurt into my veins
And through my blood I feel your pain
Let your wounds pour out into the ocean
Let them pour out into the sea
I can see the beauty in your eyes
I can sense your longing to be free
Escape the chains of torment
And run,run away with me
And in your eyes I see your past
And finally I see through you at last

Lyrics

Time moves on without
I'm just not ready for this life
Life move on without me
And I'm still left behind

Where do you draw the line
We're too afraid to change sometimes
And you.....cannot reach me
And I....cannot reach her

I'm tired of this game
We play to fit in and then we die
"Oh I'm sorry it's too late
You were too busy wondering why"

And you...cannot reach me
And I....cannot reach her

I turn around and everyone's gone
Time to grow up and move on
And I've forgotten about myself
Too busy lookin' out for everyone else

And you cannot reach me
And I cannot reach her

instrumental solo
Distorted vocal ( trapped in a cave
feel so deranged
cannot reach you!)

I'm tired of these rules
I broke the pattern, I'm so cruel!
Now I'm dancing , now I'm free
I'm given the chance to finally breath

And you cannot reach me
And I cannot reach her

Lyrics

One day you walked into my life
It didn't take too long to see the beauty in your eyes
Was it the wine, the taste of your sweet lips?
Just as sweet as you are to me
And like a dream the night became
As I laid there by your side
The passion burned, the song begun
And now the night is over
The melody plays on and on
And now the night is colder
Without you here in my arms
I gotta clear up these emotions
Either set them free or let go
Cause who knows how long this will last
I just don't know

Someone give me the answers, Someone clear my mind
Cause I don't know how long this will last
Someone else may come and steal your breath away
But as long as you're happy, it's okay
As long as I know that you're still here in my life

Lyrics

I drove the miles that led me to my past
I was hoping to find some answers
I was hoping to find them fast
From the days that paint my future 
From my childhood through my youth
There it was I closed my eyes to protect me from the truth

The missing page from this journal can no longer be replaced
Not by you or anyone
It's mine to recreate
I know you want to save me but I'm the only one who can say
"Hey, It's all okay"

I followed my footsteps down the path that I once played
And I pieced together memories I still remember to this day
I could see myself, a child again
In front of me she stood
I took her hand we played a while
I swear I did all I could

The missing page from this journal can no longer be replaced
Not by you or anyone
It's mine to recreate
I know you want to save me but I'm the only one who can say
"Hey, It's all okay"

Lost

Lyrics

I've been gone for quite sometime
'took a trip to the other side

I've fallen fast alseep
I've fallen hard, I've fallen deep

Someone rescue me
Someone help me to find my peace
I ran away from my dreams
Someone bring them back to me

//: Lai di dai dai dai dai dai ; //

I lost myself in the space between distance and time
and I stumbled through life just pretending you were mine
Now everything seems so faded yet so clear
Buried hidden deep inside me lies my fear

Someone rescue me
Someone help me to find my peace
I ran away from me dreams 
Someone bring them back to me

//: Lai di dai dai dai dai dai ; //

Maybe I moved on too fast
Maybe I wasn't ready for this change to last inside me
Maybe I moved on too fast
Maybe I wasn't ready for this dream to pass without me

Is it really you that I miss
Maybe it's just your magical spell or that fairytale kiss
When will this nightmare be over?
SO I don't have to sleep anymore to dream

Lyrics

She sits and waits by the telephone.

Her heart aches. She is all alone.

She dries her eyes as she sings a song.

The one she wrote before things went wrong.

And she just can't wait to feel you again.

And she just can't believe she won't ever again.

Oh, she just can't live with herself.

She drinks the night away and pretends she's alright.

I watch her fade away almost every night.

And she just can't wait to feel you again.

And she just can't believe she won't ever again.

Oh, she just can't live with herself.

I ask why can't you move on.

She said, "My heart's turned to stone.

Nothings the same now. I cannot love.

Nobody else now feels like enough."

She sits and waits by the telephone.

Lyrics

This time you went too far, you went out of your mind 
You think everyone is so unkind 
You said,"I just can't live here, my life is at stake 
Won't you take me with you? Please, I made a big mistake! 
I am unworthy, I don't belong, 
Someone's out to kill me for all the things I've done 
I have no choice now, I must runaway 
Forget the ones I love, they don't love me anyway 
I love you I hate you but please don't go away 
Promise me you'll love me, for always 
And you better obey me if you wanna live 
Please don't betray me trust is a hard thing to give 
I am unworthy, I don't belong, 
Someone's out to kill me for all the things I've done 
I have no choice now, I must runaway 
Forget the ones I love, they don't love me anyway 
I know you don't understand, your just a kid 
I'm a couple years older but it's a long time I've lived 
Shhhh, don't say a word, don't tell anyone 
They'll all think I'm crazy, little do they know!
