Track Name: Out of the Shadows
and I see my face too
when I look at you
I see your eyes glow
like mine
and I know that you know
we’re living now
and I feel your heart beat
cause now you know

We’re out of the shadow
Out of the shadow

and I see my my face too
when I look at you
and I see your eyes glow
like mine
and don’t let them tell you
you’re born this way
and I feel that you know
who you are

we're out of the shadows
we're out of the shadows

and as our time comes and goes they’ll know
we are those who changed the course for souls

out of the shadow
out of the shadow
Track Name: My Arrow
And I can finally hear
The words I kept inside
And I finally see
Why I had to leave

My Arrow flew
To your heart to soon
My lips burn
At the thought of you

The words I kept inside
Tore my soul apart
And my eyes had only seen
The world in front of me

My arrow flew
To your heart too soon
And my lips burn
At the thought of you

I saw your life
I saw your dark
I saw your inconsistent light

My arrow flew
To your heart too soon
My lips burn
At the thought of you
Track Name: 12714
I am in a foreign land
miles from the sea
All around me people stare
as if they’re judging me

And if I die tomorrow
would i ever see you again
And if you die tomorrow
would we ever see them again

I am with you tonight
miles in the sky
From the streets they stop and stare
but we’re just passing by

And if I die tomorrow
would I ever see you again
And if we die tomorrow
would I ever see you again

And they come come and go
to enjoy the show
watch there singer sing
all their favorite songs
And they come and go
to enjoy their show
but there leaving early

I am with you tonight
the city’s far below
From the streets they stop and stare
watching where we go
Track Name: For the Better
Long walks in the dark
Sunrise from a field
Dew covers all
Graceful leaf falls

but the shimmering sound
of the city’s song
only draws me near
from your careless thoughts
of your simple life
it’s better for me here
it’s better you stay there

Silent trail
Trees weep
An open road
Away from devils keep

Devils keep

And you want me gone
you forced me to run
and you want me gone
to leave my loves and run

but the shimmering sound
of the city’s song
only draws me here
from your careless thoughts
of your simple life
it’s better for me here

And the shimmering sound
of the city’s song
only draws me here
from your careless thoughts
of your simple life
it’s better for me here

it’s better you stay there
Track Name: Touch
and our cold walk that led us here
to our own little home
took it’s toll on my burdened heart
from the year's pleasant stroll

and the tears trickle down my nose
I don’t know where they go
while the rain pour from my eyes,
well it falls to my toes

from the ground up I hold you
from the ground up I touch you
and if I find our time growing thin
I’ll need to hold you once again

so I see you like I did before
I go back and look once more
and I remember the words that left my mouth
and I feel such remorse

and from the ground up I hold you
from the ground up I touch you
and if I find our time growing thin
I’ll need to feel you once again

again again
Track Name: Letter
Northern trees, in the meadow
birds are singing this girl is leaving

Silent home, the chimney smokes
this girl packs her bags

And writes a letter home
she never called this home

Her father sighs
kisses her goodbye

and waits

Waits for a letter home
Track Name: Emergence
and since the end was clear
my mind began to fear
the life I had to leave
to make a better me

I found
my time
with you
began to feel this way

I simply couldn’t see
the life I had to lead
and I just felt to free
too free to see

I found
my time
with you
began to feel this way

you weren’t pushing me
you weren’t giving me
reason, reason to be
reason, reason to be
reason, reason to be

and I found
my time
with you
began to feel this way
