Track Name: A Friend
I really need a friend
cause i am my own enemy
if i get knocked down again
i can't see the road ahead of me
i beat myself like rain
all those drops just fall on me
clouds are all my head
and the sun just turns away(this line lost?)

can i hold your candle
to see where i'm hurt
can i take your flame
to light myself on fire

I really need a friend
cause i am lost again
the coin is in the air
but i don't trust my hands
i think of either way
but they both end the same
if i take a rose with me
then i won't have to stop to smell them

can i hold your candle
and see where i'm hurt
can i take your flame
and light myself on fire
Track Name: My Reason
Need a reason to get out of bed
need a reason to hold my head up
need a way to keep me safe
need a reason to find a better way

need a smile that makes you smile
need a reason to smile though
need a hand when i'm suffering
need a reason why i'm suffering

my reason is, yeah
my reason is, yeah
my reason is, yeah
me

Need a way to keep on moving
need to go at a steady pace
need a reason to push on through
need a need to want all of me too

need someone to believe in me
need to give away my gifts
need a backdrop with my focus
need a way to take it all away

my reason is, yeah
my reason is, yeah
my reason is, yeah
me
Track Name: Freesia
Time spent away never changed a thing
lips kiss the sunlight, but never touch me
eyes tell lies sweetly
i cover your mouth to hear them sing to me

run to the waves
secretly
knowing that the water will wash it all away
this time
the rain came and washed it back to me

mine was a day cold with shame
the touch of your hand meant so much to me
clouds pass over and the sun hides away
i know the tears in your eyes didn't mean a thing

run to the waves
secretly
knowing that the water will wash it all away
this time
the rain came and washed it back to me

i'm waiting
for a better day
why
when this day is forever
i would believe
but i never will again

run to the waves
secretly
knowing that the water will wash it all away
this time
the rain came and took you away from me
Track Name: Top of Grandview
Sitting on top of Grandview
watching the wind blow flags
all of my troubles
are asleep at last
thousands of people
all sleeping up here
sounds of the city
so loud and near

how can there be peace
when theres so much pain
how can there be silence
when the world won't go away

steal my peace in time
when i'm home again
then someone takes mine
and i go again
walking heals my soul
so i'm free now
darkness in my veins
now i can't come down

how many days gone
still i'm bound
i could be released
if i could just stay down

i feel helpless
yet safe
i feel helpless
yet safe
Track Name: Candyflip mood
Swallows that heal, when i'm in the air
where the sky meets the tip of the ground i'll be dancing
must be something in the air and it's me
my pretty wrinkle
my pretty wrinkle down, down here

put my head on a tiny square
put my heart on those lollipop eyes
and go for awhile
must be something in the air and it's me
my pretty wrinkle
my pretty wrinkle down, down here

echos of the nightengales
bring these tears to my eyes
even now that i'm alone
they fly to my window
and when my dear sang a song so precious
i'd take those words and make them my lover
now that those days are gone
i open my window and wait for those ghosts to come home

rain falls in my room
whispers "love" and i see mine
cause i could never be
anything as beautiful

kiss me goodnight
i might not ever make it home
kiss me goodnight
i might not ever make it home

tomorrow i'll be gone
tomorrow i'll be gone

kiss me goodbye
kiss me goodbye
i've closed my window
i've closed my window
i've closed my window
