Track Name: Human Next to Me
Don’t tell me not to worry
When you’re just as scared as me
Of putting faith in something
That you cannot even see

If you could answer all my questions
If you could counter all my doubt
If you could look at me and guarantee
That you’ll try to work this one out,
Then I’ll stay.

Don’t act like you’ll stand by me
Then leave me in the dust
‘Cause I’ve been disappointed before
And I’m running low on trust

If you could answer all my questions
If you could counter all my doubt
If you could look at me and guarantee
That you’ll try to work this one out,

Then I’ll give you my word that I’ll do what I can
But I’m only human and god knows that man
Isn’t capable of always getting it right
Of seeing what ought to be in his sight

We are blinded, we are naked, we are foolish, we are free.
And I find it so amazing that you’re human next to me.

So we’ll seal it with a handshake
A small, impersonal glance
Betraying our heartbreak
As we give it one more chance.

If you could answer all my questions
If you could counter all my doubt
If you could look at me and guarantee
That you’ll try to work this one out,
Then I’ll stay.
Track Name: Do You Know?
Do you know how beautiful you are
Standing there, staring at the stars?
As you count them one by one
With your finger and your thumb
Do you know, do you know, do you know, do you know

How brilliant you seem?
Lying there, peaceful as you dream
Of places overgrown
I swear some day we’ll go
Do you know, do you know, do you know, do you know

Do you know what happens when we go?
Take my body, leave my soul
Maybe I could trade it for some time.
Time that I would spend with you, even just a day would do
You know?

How comforting it was
To know you loved me just because
Your heart was half of me
It’s every other beat.
Do you know, do you know, do you know, do you know

Do you know what happens when we go?
Take my body, leave my soul
Maybe I could trade it for some time.
Time that I would spend with you, even just a day would do

You know how much I love
Do you know how much I wish
To take back all the times that I recoiled from your kiss
Do you know?

How maddening it feels
To love someone who isn’t here
Your picture in my mind
Is fading over time
Do you know, do you know, do you know, do you know
Do you know?
Track Name: Lonely
Your beauty doesn’t trick me anymore
Your beauty doesn’t trick me anymore
I finally see the you hiding past those eyes of blue
Your beauty doesn’t trick me anymore

Your laughter never sounded so cold
Your laughter never sounded so cold
I used to hear the sound and my world came crashing down
Your laughter never sounded so cold

And I was lonely by myself
Just as lonely loving someone else
You see, it didn’t matter, wasn’t even fun
Loving you when I knew you weren’t the one.

Your face is nothing special in my mind
Your face is nothing special in my mind
I’m trying to recall, but I can’t see it at all
Your face is nothing special in my mind

And I was lonely by myself
Just as lonely loving someone else
You see, it didn’t matter, wasn’t even fun
Loving you when I knew you weren’t the one.

And I tricked myself so easily
Trying to make my eyes see what I wanted to.
Making you something you weren’t
Lesson learned and bridges burnt but I wanted you, it’s true.

My love for you is running out
My love for you is running out
I gave you all I had, but you treated me so bad
My love for you is running out.

And I was lonely by myself
Just as lonely loving someone else
You see, it didn’t matter, wasn’t even fun
Loving you when I knew you weren’t the one.
Track Name: Don't Stop Loving Me
Don’t stop loving me when I make it difficult.
Sometimes what I need is unconditional.
Take me for what I am; it’s all I can be.
I do the best I can, so don’t stop loving me.

Don’t let me forget everywhere we’ve gone.
And don’t let me let the darkness overcome
Sometimes I lose sight, drowned in my regret
Make my memory right, don’t let me forget.

Don’t be scared to fight, say what’s on your mind.
We will be all right if we give it time.
To let the darkness out, make room for the light
That’s what love’s about. Don’t be scared to fight.

And I won’t stop loving you when you make it difficult.
For my love is true and unconditional.
Track Name: Sun is Rising
Sun is rising, it’s a new day following the one before.
Every moment is a hallway, winding steps and closing doors
And we can’t go back, we go onward and upward with every step we take
Look behind us and we’ll find such forgivable mistakes.

Oh, the past is just a path to where we stand
And our future’s written somewhere in the sand
But I just wanna stay in the beauty of today
And learn to love where I am.

Crickets chirping in the meadow, cars go rolling slowly on.
In the refuge of a shadow I am listening to their song
And I’m vowing to move onward and upward with every step I take
Look behind us and we’ll find such forgivable mistakes.

Oh, the past is just a path to where we stand
And our future’s written somewhere in the sand
But I just wanna stay in the beauty of today
And learn to love where I am.

And it’s so easy to get swallowed by the chaos and the crowd
The headaches and the promises, the thunder and the clouds
Though storms there may be coming, oh and storms there may have been
Right now the sky is clear and bright and sun will shine again.

Sun is rising, it’s a new day better than the one before.
Every moment is a hallway, winding steps and closing doors
And we can’t go back, we go onward and upward with every step we take
Look behind us and we’ll find such forgivable mistakes.
