    New Morning Sun
    Maybe now we could be lovers
    We'll share all the darkness in our souls
    Don't you tell me lies
    I could always see the truth in your eyes
    Please don't lead me on
    Better just to crush me now and be gone

    Way down here under the red lights
    We carved our futures on the wall
    Somedays seemed too much
    I would always bend right under your touch
    Morning comes again
    I've already move way past all the pain

    Gotta rise up
    Rise up and take the sky like a new morning sun
    If we walk away
    Then we walk away never knowing what we could have done

    Maybe you're right
    We lose sometime
    Stand around to see what's fine
    Or what will come
    That's the risk that we run
    Run

    Now we can hear everyone talking
    Well our world's getting smaller everyday
    All our games are played
    We gotta live with the mess that we made
    Don't you walk away
    I can hear every word that you say

    Gotta rise up
    Rise up and take the sky like a new morning sun
    If we walk away
    Then we walk away never knowing what we could have done

    Maybe your right
    we lose some time
    Wait around to see what's fine
    or what will come
    That's the risk that we run

    Gotta rise up
    Rise up and take the sky like a new morning sun
    If we walk away
    Then we walk away never knowing what we could have done

    Rise up
    Rise up and take the sky like a new morning sun
    If we walk away
    Then we walk away never knowing what we could have done

    Wondering
    Everywhere you go
    And everyone you meet
    The way you light your cigarette
    The way you spill your drink
    Every kiss you steal
    And every heart you break
    Every smile you leave
    On a strangers face

    And you wish you could remember
    Your dreams when you wake
    'Cause now everything
    Feels like a big mistake

    And you're wondering
    Why can't this world be more
    More like the one you were meant for
    And you're wondering
    Why can't this love be more
    More like the love you were meant for

    Sometimes it tears you apart
    When you have to leave
    The one love you want
    It makes you feel like
    It's all a lie
    You can't believe he said
    Goodbye

    And you wish you could remember
    Your dreams when you wake
    'Cause now everything
    Feels like a big mistake

    And you're wondering
    Why can't this world be more
    More like the one you were meant for
    And you're wondering
    Why can't this love be more
    More like the love you were meant for

    Over Me
    Walk along the darkened streets
    You hear music and you hope it never stops
    Make your way through strangers' lives
    Talk to girls who work in coffee shops

    Then you came over me, over me
    Snuck up from behind you see
    I watch and I wait
    Nothing ever comes
    But now I know I'm standing where I'm supposed to be
    Over me

    Darkness by the riverside
    Lets you know you've only so much time
    History comes round again
    But no one seems to pay it any mind

    Then you came over me, over me
    Opened up my eyes to see
    I watch and I wait
    Nothing ever comes
    But now I know I'm standing where I'm supposed to be
    Over me

    Sometimes you never know
    How the winds of change will come and go
    World goes round and round
    And you throw away the good things that you've found

    Then you come over me, over me
    Wrapped your arms around me now I see
    I watch and I wait
    And nothing ever comes
    But now I know I'm standing where I'm supposed to be
    Over me
    Now I know I'm standing where I'm supposed to be
    Over me

    Never Too Late
    I knew it was trouble
    When you lost your direction
    You felt so tired and betrayed
    Then you started talking
    To your own reflections
    Found the right one to blame

    Sometimes you just want to hide
    Make it all go away
    You still can't believe
    The price you had to pay
    And you keep on making
    All the same mistakes
    You keep on telling yourself
    That it's never too late
    No, it's never too late

    You're always talking
    About your inspiration
    How much more do you need
    It's never further than
    It's never closer
    Do you always have to preach

    Sometimes you just want to hide
    Make it all go away
    You still can't believe
    The price you had to pay
    And you keep on making
    All the same mistakes
    You keep on telling yourself
    That it's never too late
    No, it's never too late

    When The Truth Comes Out
    Everyone I've ever known
    They've been cut right to the bone
    Left bleeding in the rain
    And with nothing to defend
    They just lean on all their friend
    To bring them back again

    Now I'm watching
    Moonlight move across your eyes
    You should stay asleep
    Miles and miles to go

    Its amazing what we do
    When we want to break on through
    Amazing how we rush
    But I've known the wounded heart
    When we've drifted far apart
    And I've lived without your touch

    Now you know
    Night time brings it back to me
    The time I've lost my way
    And I wondered what went wrong

    But I've turned myself around
    I'm not losing ground here anymore
    Not breaking myself down
    I'm only waiting on the open door

    Fall in love, rise above, everything is clear
    You'll be caught between believing and your doubt
    When the truth comes out

    Wake up girl and talk to me
    I need to hear your voice
    It's lonely in the night

    But I've turned myself around
    I'm not losing ground here anymore
    Not breaking myself down
    I'm only waiting on the open door

    Fall in love, rise above, everything is clear
    Through it all, rise and fall, I know just why I'm here
    We'll wonder what our tears were all about
    When the truth comes out

    The truth comes out
    (When the truth comes out)
    The truth comes out
    (When the truth comes out)

    Paradise
    For all the wounds that never heal
    For all the times you were a rebel
    For this one night,
    Let's not ask the price
    You have to pay,
    To stay in paradise

    So throw another log on the fire
    Your sympathy my desire
    We'll watch the sparks fly
    High into the sky
    We'll see the lights of paradise

    We'll watch the sparks fly
    High into the sky
    We'll see the lights of paradise

    I was born to wander
    And every dollar I made I squandered
    But the greatest misery
    Is know I'll have to leave
    Leave these lights of paradise

    AH sweet oblivion
    To sing and dance with the innocent
    When I'm on my deathbed
    Taking my last breath
    Will i have paid the price
    To stay in paradise

    When I'm on my deathbed
    Taking my last breath
    Will I have paid the price
    To stay in paradise

    Tell Me Again
    Tell me again about that love that lasts forever
    How we'll ride the ups and downs all through the years
    And I won't think about my pain
    As I listen to you explain
    How that perfect love just up and disappears

    Oh later on when you're gone
    And I can think again
    I'll sit down and I'll figure out what went wrong
    Well I expect to take my licks
    But life plays dirty tricks
    I knew that I was sinking but I held on way too long

    Tell me again about that love that lasts forever
    It's all happiness and smiles and never tears
    And I won't think about my pain
    As I listen to you explain
    How that perfect love just up and disappears

    Chestnut eyes and golden hair
    That's what brought me here
    I looked at you and froze right in my place
    There's a line you never cross
    Between what's won and lost
    I knew I stepped right over when I stared into your face

    Tell me again about that love that lasts forever
    How we'll ride the ups and downs all through the years
    And I won't think about my pain
    As I listen to you explain
    How that perfect love just up and disappears
    How that perfect love just up and disappears

    Mattawa
    Can't see this winter road
    For the fog and snow
    Slippin through
    Headed east on seventeen
    Timber stacks a few miles back
    All laid out like rocket ships

    So many words I should have said
    Spent all night tryin to forget the one i did
    This road is a thorn river of regret
    Wind howls like a ghost inside my head
    Was so wrong, now there's no retunin'

    Two hundred miles, till sunrise
    Two hundred miles of this ice and snow
    Myyyyyyy, paint the dawn in Mattawa
    I'll greet the dawn in Mattawa

    Sadness in the morning, comes with the break of day
    For the dawn is a thief, that steals your dreams away
    Was so wrong now there's no returnin'

    Two hundred miles till sunrise
    Two hundred miles of this ice and snow
    Myyyyyyy paint the dawn in Mattawa
    I'll greet the dawn in Mattawa

    Made Your Mind Up
    Tell me the way that you want this to go
    I can be hard or I'll melt like the snow coming down
    Everything changes each word that we say
    One little step and you can't find your way back around

    Maybe some picture appears in your head
    Knocks you right off of your track
    All the doubts and excuses they flood in instead
    One little step out that door
    You'll never go back

    Well you're trying to get out
    You can't find the words
    Leaving the way that you'd always heard
    But you made your mind up
    Yes you made your mind up

    Night after night you're back here again
    Tossing and turning like birds in the rain losing ground
    Take away everything gained in a life
    All you could borrow or steal
    No rich man no poor man
    No wrong or no right
    Strips you right back down to nothing
    But the way that you feel

    Well you're trying to get out
    You can't find the words
    Leaving the way that you'd always heard
    And you made your mind up
    Yes you made your mind up

    Everyone knows that it's easy to leave
    Harder to get out and really believe
    But you made your mind up
    Yes you made your mind up

    Ten thousand reasons are scattered around
    As you watch yourself walking away, walking away

    Maybe some picture appears in your head
    Knocks you right off of your track
    All the doubts and excuses they flood in instead
    One little step out that door
    You'll never come back

    Well you're trying to get out
    You can't find the words
    Leaving the way that you'd always heard
    And you made your mind up
    Yes you made your mind up

    Everyone knows that it's easy to leave
    Harder to get out and really believe
    But you made your mind up
    Yes you made your mind up

    Climbing the steps with your head hanging down
    You meet yourself walking away, walking away

    Tell me the way that you want this to go
    I can be hard or I'll melt like the snow coming down

    In Our Nature
    When life feels like a storm-filled sky
    That twists and turns inside your mind
    Like a sheet hung on the line
    It's in our nature to fly

    Like a kite tossed side to side
    The wind will guide us 'til we die
    Like the clouds chased thru the night
    It's in our nature to fly

    I fell into your bright green life
    We rode those colours for a while
    Until the sky unleashed her light
    It's in our nature to say goodbye
    It's in our nature to say goodbye

    In The Darkness
    In the darkness
    Cold black eyes that never see
    Feel you slipping
    Always standing out of reach

    There's a secret
    In the shadows of what used to be
    We were hiding
    Smiling so no one could see

    Don't know how
    Don't know why
    We rarely speak, you never try
    Turn your back, look away
    Feeling tired and betrayed
    Lost between the lines
    Scared of what we'll find

    We were silent
    Guessing what no one could say
    We were praying
    That your mind wasn't already made

    Don't know how
    Don't know why
    We rarely speak, you never try
    Turn your back, look away
    Feeling tired and betrayed
    Lost between the lines
    Scared of what we'll find

    You Should Know
    When you run out of things to say
    And there's clouds in your mind
    Everything falls away
    And you're wasting all your time
    People can be so cruel girl
    They pretend that they care
    We can always fix your world
    ‘Cause you know I'll be there
    You should know you're always on my mind

    When the rain it keeps coming down
    And it's washing away your smile
    You're running around your town
    Trying to hide out for a while
    Everywhere you look you see
    Only shadows and pain
    You can always lean on me
    Get you moving again
    You should know you're always on my mind

    When you feel you can't walk one more mile
    You just need a friend to walk you down the road a while

    When you run out of things to say
    And there's clouds in your mind
    Everyone falls away
    They were wasting all your time
    People can be so cruel
    People can be so cruel
    Everything that happens now will fade away with time
    You should know you're always on my mind
    You should know you're always on my mind

    Tara's Blues
    What am I going to do
    With all these blues
    What am I going to do
    If this old world weren't so cruel
    I'd give them all back to you
    I'd give them all back to you

    'Cause now you've found someone new
    He's holding you the way I used to
    He's holding you

    It came as no surprise
    I could see it in your eyes
    Still what am I supposed to do
    With all these blues
    What am I going to do?
    With all these blues

    I'm so tired but I can't sleep
    I can't do anything I'm not complete
    No, I can't believe

    I curse the day I saw your face
    But still each night I lie awake and I pray
    That you'll come home to these loving arms

    It came as no surprise
    I could see it in your eyes
    Still what am I supposed to do
    With all these blues
    What am I supposed to do?
    What am I going to do?
    What am I going to do?
    With all these blues
