Track Name: Liars
hey, we could spend the day
in an ordinary way, oh
just lying around
well, we don't have to say
everything that comes our way
there's no need to be profound

well, one time
moves into next time
could it be the right time
when I feel into love
we begin to fall

and the time that we're spending now
feel the weight of all that we desire
and if the waves come crashing down
will we meet again in clouds or fire
if the world doesn't reach me now
will I wish that we had gone much higher
and if the words fail me then
will all that we've said make us liars

well, would it be unkind
to see what's on your mind
you know I do not have a clue
well, it's only just to find
a little thing to use in time
when I want to talk with you all day

well it's one time
And maybe two time
could it be the right time
when I feel into love we begin to fall

and the time that we're spending now
feel the weight of all that we desire
if the waves come crashing down
will we meet again in clouds or fire
and if the world doesn't reach me now
will I wish that we had gone much higher
and if the words fail me
then will all that we've said make us liars

all my waves are comin' round me
all my waves are comin' round me
Track Name: Drifting Apart
floating on a summer's lake
I keep losing your hand in hand
is that your plan to slip away
far out of reach
until the only thing left to do is comb your beach
for signs of tides
oh and feelings of
feelings of the strangest kind

where I'm looking back through time
afraid that I might find
we are only drifting apart

well, there goes light
we wanted to explore, now we have all night
to slip away
far beyond the reach of campfires and silly games
but here we stay
as if rooted to the truth of what we cannot say

are you looking back through time
afraid that you might find
we are only drifting a

part of me wants to run
into the sun
do away with this life where
all of me needs to be
beneath the sea
where I can breathe and fall
into yesteryear
when the people near
were what I held dear
well the things we do we think we must
are the things that have us drifting apart

so float away
I won't be the one that'll make you stay
but call on me
when you satisfy those things in life
you swear you need

I'll be looking back through time
afraid that I might find
that look in your eyes
telling me I was only
I was only a

part of me wants to run
into the sun
do away with this life where all
of me needs to be
beneath the sea
where I can breathe and fall
on yesteryear when the people near
were what I held dear

well the things we do we think we must
all the things that bend and break our trust
all those silly things we did in lust
and those memories they fade to dust
oh all the things we do we think we must
are the things that have us drifting apart
Track Name: Never Coming Down
well, it's the mind that's always racing
yes, it seems to get in the way
did it rule your day
well, down at the depth of what you're facing
there's a little silence for your ears
you can hold it near, well

we were just moving in, moving out
while we were running wild, running round
now we are talking loud without a sound and I'm
feeling fine

I want you all the time
and I find there's probably nothing better than this
and I'm flying so high
and I'm never coming down

so when I ask what you've been thinking
there's always nothing left to say
but I feel your pain, so
breathe deep, set aside the world you're chasing
here's a little image for your eyes
is it no surprise it's us, well

we were just moving in, moving out
while we were running wild, running round
now we are talking loud without a sound and I'm
feeling fine

I want you all the time
and I find there's probably nothing better than this
and I'm flying so high
and I'm never coming down

we were just moving in, moving out
while we were running wild, running round
now we are talking loud without a sound and I'm
feeling fine

and I want you all the time
and I find there's probably nothing better than this
and I'm flying so high
and I'm never coming down
Track Name: Down Again
time is unkind
oh what I think of it now
fading divine
all in but broken and out
played with my mind
fair seemed fair anyhow
called with my life
well I'm in no position, no
I'm in no position to know

to know how it feels
cause I've this way for a thousand days
buried beneath all the real
though I'll call
I'll call on the pain
when I never want to be that down again

leave it behind
there's not much more I can do
I'll head into night
sailing for waters I knew
why travel light
by what I cannot accrue
is that all right?
all of these possessions
well I need no possession to know

to know how it feels
cause I've lived that way for a thousand days
buried beneath all the real
and I'll call
I'll call on the pain
when I never want to be that down again
no I never want to be that down again
no I never want to be that down again
Track Name: Ease Into Me
well I'm remembering
a time we chance to meet
and life seemed so sweet, so it began
to be a paradise
upon a world spinning
I was laughing, I was grinning
and all the while
you were smiling
saying ease into me

well things are different now
the clouds above are thick
and maybe love itself is tricking us
to stay
well I've no prophet eye
though I know enough to say
I get the feeling every day

you don't believe in me
there is so much more that you'll never see
you walked right out the door way too easily
screaming at me
we're so far away from ease into me

so where's the line to draw
is there fire enough to save us
or are we just doomed to savor
what is left
but I feel indifferent
and maybe that's the reason
that I'm looking past the treason
to a time we were smiling
and it was life that got us high
now I'm hurting cause I'm certain
behind that curtain you just never once

believed in me
there is so much more that you'll never see
you walked right out the door way too easily
screaming at me
we're so far away from ease into me

well you don't believe in me
there is so much more that you'll never see
you walked right out the door way too easily
screaming at me
we're so far away
we're so far away
we're so far away
we're so far away from ease into me
Track Name: Get Up and Move
well a sign came tumbling down round mid afternoon
with a sigh you got up cause you had to move
and I'll agree that your life can come raining down way too soon
you better run while you can, while you can
get up and move

can you feel me now?
there was something about the way that you looked
made me feel like the chance was mine
well if you've got time
come on, lets get down to business baby
we'll find out where our minds collide

you're the black cat running across fifth avenue
you're a freight train barreling in right on time
you're the mad hatter yelling out get up and move
you play his friend well you ain't no friend of mine
no not this time

when you feel me now
there was something about the way that you looked
made me feel that the chance was mine
well if you've got time
come on, lets gets down to business maybe
we'll find out where our minds collide

you're the mad hatter yelling out
get up and move
you're the mad hatter yelling out
get up and move
get up and move
get up and move
get up and move
get up and move
Track Name: Flying Under Sea
I'm a pebble in your water
drop me in, watch me tumble
I'm slipping away
for a minute I am weightless
soaring around, till I land where the other pebbles lay
here I am a no-one
but I'm finding over time that's a-ok
for the memory in me
is what I'll always be
flying under sea

all I wanted was some interesting
right about the time I came unglued
pull me off the ground
spun me all around
oh, you know you know you do
you do

I'm a mountain by the ocean
king of paradise, no reason to complain
but I cannot break the stone
that keeps me alone
so here I will remain
but I always wonder
where I'd travel if I learned to move my feet
find a memory in me
where I'll always be
flying under sea

all I wanted was some interesting
right about the time I came unglued
you pull me off the ground
spun me all around
oh, you know you know you do
oh, you know you know you do
oh, you know you know you do
you do

away

all I wanted was some interesting
right about the time I came unglued
you pulled me off the ground
spun me all around
oh, you know you know you do
oh, you know you know you do
oh, you know you know you do
you do
Track Name: On The Way
so far away from people of my old town
they call me traveler because I'm not homeward bound
I have no pictures and I cannot recall that place
and so it lives a life anonymously
see, I traced a line and when I began time
something was out of place

oh, is it gravity that moves us where we need
and is there a single difference here in between us
oh, does it matter?

it's better we loved than we lost
better we thought of the heart, not the cost
better than if we had lost it all
on the way

so once upon a time I happened upon this girl
we parted ways and then we met in a modern world
she had no pictures and I could not recall her face
and so we lived a life anonymously
but I traced a line and when we began time
nothing was out of place

oh, is it gravity that brings us to our knees
and is there a single difference here in between us
oh, does it matter?

it's better we loved than we lost
it's better we followed our heart, not the cost
better than if we had lost it all
on the way
Track Name: Run From the Rhythm
well I got a little problem I cannot explain
it don't cause me no trouble, no it don't cause no pain
I made it up in the back of the top of my head
and I rather wish it'd go away and leave me instead

cause I run into this problem like every day
where I'm thinking of a thousand things to say
but my mind is always somewhere else
so I run from the rhythm and I run to the light
to find that things are just a little too bright
and everybody knows me but myself

tried drinking the water, tried twisting the vine
but it all turned to ice and never made wine
so I put it all back and started again
cause no-means don't mean I'm gonna find an end, yeah

well I run into this problem like every day
where I'm thinking of a thousand things to say
but my mind is always somewhere else
so I run from the rhythm and I run to the light
to find that that things are just a little too bright
and everybody knows me but myself

well I run into this problem like every day
where I'm thinking of a thousand things to say
but my mind is always somewhere else
so I run from the rhythm and I run to the light
to find that things are just a little too bright
and everybody knows me
does everybody know me
does everybody know me but myself
