Oh no, the first snow Is peacefully lying on the grass Oh no, I see November gets ready for the ball Did you stop to breathe? As if you were trying to hear my heartbeat And my other waltzing disappointments Did I stop to breathe? As if you were trying to take my heartbeat Whose hand is this? Pulling me once again into darkness Oh no, I can't see This black hole is sucking out all the light Did you stop to breathe? As if you were trying to read my heartbeat And my other waltzing disappointments Did I stop to breathe? As if you were trying to take my heartbeat Oh no, I see My pale reflection in the ice Oh no, it seems I can’t recognize my own voice

I've grown tired of smoke and mirrors and mysteries I'll do the talking while you stare at your feet It took years to find my own voice now I can't stop it Listen to me How I felt alive by the warmth of your skin I swallowed your lies cause you've got your reasons But I cut myself in half and count the rings This has gotta end I know, I know these walls you're building But by now I'm sure they don't keep you safe They don't keep you safe You've had all the pieces to knock me off my game But I am not as blind as you think I am Through all the twists and turns, and the fooling around You never let me win I know, I know it's not me you're playing But by now I'm sure I've got everything, Everything to lose I've grown tired of smoke and mirrors and mysteries Crying got the sad out but we ran out of tears It took years to make a choice and I'm a coward to leave You gotta forgive me Please forgive me I'm sure, I'm sure there's love behind these walls But by now I know you won't let me in You'll never let me in
3.
You've got to turn around You’ve got to turn around To see the road you've walked The clock is ticking down The clock is ticking down Counting the time you've lost Why do you make it so hard? Why do you make it so hard? The memories will blur Until they disappear But the feeling’s still clear You don't have to go home You don't have to go home But you can't stay here Why do you make it so hard? Why do you make it so hard To love you? But still we do

La tempête 03:32
J'en veux au ciel qui tombe sur ma tête Aux vagues qui valsent (sans toi) À l'orage qui passe Quand la rage casse Tout en moi J'en veux pas des années qu'il me reste À quoi bon si c'est sans toi? J'en veux pas (De l'avenir qui s'dessine Tout en noir) Quand finalement la nuit tombe Je sais qu'une autre se lèvera Seul à la fin du monde En espérant que fonde la peine, Se calme la tempête sous mon toit À la fenêtre J'attends que tu Ne reviennes pas À chaque lumière du jour Je reprends le combat Seul au bout de l'amour J'en veux pas des années qu'il me reste À quoi bon si c'est sans toi? J'en veux pas (De l'avenir qui s'dessine Tout en noir) On ne retient pas le soleil au sol Mais dis-moi qu'il reviendra Ne me laisse pas Ne me laisse pas

Rock Bottom 03:44
It was four in the morning when he knocked on my door "I'm sorry to wake you up, I was about to pass by your porch But then I saw the light. It's my first visit here, could you show me around? I've always feared the city and I'm terrified to face it before the dawn" I feel you my friend, one never chooses to come to Rock Bottom So John and I left the house for some action And when we got on the main street I was about to pass by Ol’ William But John asked me to pull over He said, "If I was him I'd like someone to stop" So we stopped Old Dirty William asked for a couple of bucks: "Sorry lad it ain’t been my year," He said, "I'd trade one of your worst days for one of my best, anytime" "Well, we're not gonna fight over who's the most miserable, Jump in the car" And just when I think we've hit Rock Bottom We ain’t seen nothing yet The Three Musketeers wandering around Passed you in your bright skinny dress on the side of the road, Waiting for a miracle I called out to you that we’re all in the same boat Brothers in pain and sisters in misery Hoping salvation is out there beyond the yellow brick road But just when we thought we were out of Rock Bottom It might have only been the eye of the storm Up there someone's laughing their ass off "Go ahead, make plans, and keep raging when they blow up in smoke As if you've got it all under control" And don’t forget to stop by our gift shop But if you've learned nothing from it now Well we'll see you again soon 'Cause no matter where you are, you're two steps from Rock Bottom
6.
The seasons change The flowers wither I believe we should Stop and smell the roses 'Cause maybe this time It won't blow up in our faces And if it does, we'll gather up the pieces But now let ourselves be drawn To the beauty we've found It comes and goes Sometimes even vanishes away Or find ourselves alone Hiding from heartbreak It comes and goes But true love's a needle in the hay The faces change But the thorns remain Wild roses keep growing Though you look away And maybe this time It will blow up in our face But only to fall back into place

In Town 05:16
There's no need to talk about it, I know Seven hours between us and we both hate to talk on the phone So can't this wait until I'm back home? 'Cause if I was there with you now it would be different I would quietly hold you tight, 'cause sometimes there's just nothing to say When I'm close I understand your silences but with the distance… You have no idea how hard I wish I could be with you now, 'cause if I was You wouldn't be sobbing to that guy about how your boyfriend's a selfish asshole And he wouldn't be there stealing the space I can't fill, auditioning for my role I could choose to drop it all, well, fuck it I’m not I busted my ass to get everything that I've got Five in the morning, we're seven in a van, back on the road again Do you really think I'm only doing it for fun? The places I visit, the people I meet, I wish you could see that too My memories, I wish I could share them with you So that's why as soon as I get enough money in this wallet I’ll buy a ticket for you to fly away from all these stupid things you wanna be, From everything you're building without me Just so you know, I'll be in town tomorrow Are you still mad I chose not to choose what I already had? Please tell me our love is never gonna fade Tell me you still want to fight for that conviction we once had That our love's gonna be strong enough to do better Than all these broken-hearted long distance lovers Yes I get to meet other girls, yes they're hot and breezy Yes sometimes when I get drunk it's getting harder and harder 'Cause yes, they are more fun than you are Maybe there's some charm in not winning all the time "Why didn't you return my calls?" No I won't tell you the truth, you couldn't handle it Anyway with you it's all about what you want to believe Yeah we’re in a strip club but I swear I’m not looking, babe Fuck the size of her boobs, I'll always prefer yours Just so you know, I'll be in town tomorrow Are you still mad I chose not to choose what I already had? Please tell me our love is never gonna fade Tell me you still want to fight for that conviction we once had That our love's gonna be strong enough to do better Than all these broken-hearted long distance lovers Last time I saw you and the baby at the church Seemed nothing had changed But when I signed the papers They'd put "God" before "father" Maybe the least selfish thing I've ever done Was to get out of the way and tell you to run And by the way, I was in town yesterday But I couldn’t find the strength to stop by And stare at all that I chose to leave behind How I feel about you is never gonna change If everything's spinning around I'll stand still on my own solid ground But I guess love was not enough for us

Witch Hunt 03:50
You keep your thoughts To yourself You hold my hand 'Cause who you are Is weirding them out They're throwing rocks A witch hunt And they won’t let you Out of the box They put you in Hope you'll get out of here alright Hope you will break free and into the light I know you went to hell and back You cover up What you feel 'Cause they won't stop Until The shine in your eyes fades away There's life beyond This youth But if it does Kill you How will it make you any stronger? Hope you'll get out of here alright Hope you will break free and into the light I know you went to hell and back There's a life beyond this one There's a light beyond this one There's a life beyond this one But first you've got to Get outta here, alright You've got to break free into the light And find a way through Hell and back There's a life beyond this one

Whole 04:15
I can't say it all makes me proud But I believe I've always tried To play the hand I was given Darling most of the time I can tell we’re slowly dying from what we're ashamed of But now feel at home Darling most of the time I can tell you that we die From what we don't overcome You're perfect just the way you are The only one standing in your way is you But now feel whole I wish someone told you before That you're perfect just the way you are But because we only take the love We think we’re worthy of I will love us for two Until you feel whole
