Track Name: Taking Me Away (Fretted Studio Session)
The sun shone down
And I knew it was over
This time it was clear
We both were falling out

Time drags on
Drags far too long
When you can't make any love
With the one you love

She'd laugh at everything I'd say
I know you'll treat me better
She said she'd kiss it all away
I know you'll kiss me better
Was wrong to think it was ok
Don't try and tell me it's alright
I know you're taking me away

What's left is dead
Let's bury this old heart
Guess I just hadn't...
Hadn't earned it yet, baby

She'd laugh at everything I'd say
I know you'll treat me better
She said she'd kiss it all away
I know you'll kiss me better
Was wrong to think it was ok
Don't try and tell me it's alright
I know you're taking me away

I know we both can feel it
I know you're taking me away
Away
Track Name: When The Light Is On (Fretted Studio Session))
I used to be a daytime street talker,
Had a place and I had a name.
Until I woke up from a smack-down kick to the face.

I felt I wasn’t doing all I could do,
And you were there with me.
These things don’t get better on their own,
You’ll have to burn your bridges free.

You know you’ll dance when you hear your song,
But you can only see when the light is on.
You think it’s over, but it’s just begun.
You can only see when the light is on.
You know I’ll jump when I hear the phone,
But you can only see when the light is on.
All that you’ve taken is almost gone,
But you can only see when the light is on.

The white washes on their pale grey backdrop
always seem to keep things in order.
‘Cause you can never tell that’s it’s fucked up as hell.

You know I’m just as scared as you,
And I want you there with me
With all the patience in the world,
I know you’ll never see.

(Chorus)

Can we go back now?
Can we go back now?
Can we go back now?
We can’t go back now.
Can we go back now?
We can’t go back now.
We can’t go back now.
We can’t go back now.
Track Name: Fall (Fretted Studio Session)
There’s so much to assume when you fall each time.
That it has to be you,
Only wrong you can do
When it comes to these things in life.

You tell yourself that it’s just bad luck,
Eventually you’ll be past the struggle.
But as the air grows thick, it gets harder to breathe.

When you see her tonight,
You will fall for the millionth time.
When you see her tonight,
You won’t know why.
Nothing that you say will make it better.
And nothing that you do will be alright.
When you see her tonight,
You won’t know why.

You fantasize, then you agonize.
All the things she could do, if your heart she would choose.
You can’t see the truth in her eyes.

You tell yourself it will be better next time.
Eventually you will find it in someone.
But then the air grows thicker than the last time.

Rinse and repeat night after night.
Track Name: Peace In Darkness (Fretted Studio Session))
These city lights feel so alone.
The nighttime fights to keep it’s home.
Along the road you feel a spark,
Cuts you deep right through your heart.
These city lights feel so alone.

And I'll always need you, dear.
There is peace in darkness here.

Please don’t let this memory fade away.
I’ll only ever call for you, lover.
Misdirection, hopes and fears.
Please don’t don’t let this memory fade away.
Just know this moment's all that matters.
There is peace in darkness here.

These city lights turn me around.
The dreams I had last night have now been found.
When nights go on and on like this,
I don’t want to feel the daylight’s kiss.
These quiet nights when we’re alone.
Track Name: Daybreak (Fretted Studio Session)
Safe in your affairs under electric eyes.
The walls are taller than we could ever realize.

I never cared that much, did you?
They never cared that much for us.
Watching us bleeding, watching us bleeding, yeah.
I never cared that much, did you?
They never cared that much for us.
Watching us bleed inside.

Daybreak,
The time when there’ll be no more we can take.
Daybreak,
Eventually you’ll force yourself awake.

Life is but a test of your faith.
The best of which gets tortured and scathed.

I never cared that much, did you?
They never cared that much for us.
Watching us feeding, watching us leaving, yeah.
I never cared that much, did you?
They never cared that much for us.
Watching us falling in line.

(Chorus)

Awake.
Awake.
Awake.
