Track Name: Strangers
Can you see or feel it
Because there’s really nothing left inside
A memory of what we once were
That’s faded and distorted all over time

We used to be like brothers in arms
Waging a war against time
But now we’re just two strangers at night
Lost within our own lives

I thought I really new you
But really I just couldn’t see past all the lies
The love that we had once shared
Was beaten by the words and the ego-eyes

And now I can’t begin to reach you
No matter how hard I can try
You’re way too far gone for my words
Beyond any reason of doubt

Like a perfect stranger
You had come into my life
And like a perfect stranger
You had left without a fight

Oh, my,,,

Can you see or feel it
Because there’s really nothing left inside
A memory of what we once were
That’s faded and distorted all over time

And now I can’t begin to reach you
No matter how hard I can try
You’re way too far gone for my words
Beyond any reason of doubt

Like a perfect stranger
You had come into my life
And like a perfect stranger
You had left without a fight
Track Name: Behind Those Eyes
I fell into it
A twist of fate
No one to guide me
Through all the haze

A shroud of mystery
Some simple words
Can have true meaning
Can cure the hurt

I hope that you feel the same too
All that I have I can give to you
You know that I’m not all of mind
A heart really beats behind those eyes

I had a vision
I had a dream
A house of plenty
For you and me

Oh, on a mountain
By a stream
In a garden
Under a tree…

I hope that you feel the same too
All that I have I can give to you
You know that I’m not all of mind
A heart really beats behind those eyes

I hope that you feel the same too
All that I have I can give to you
You know that I’m not all of mind
A heart really beats behind those eyes
Track Name: Lies, Lies, Lies
I know you won’t
Say what you mean
For fear of falling out
Of favour with me

A life of lies
Leads you nowhere
But to darkened halls
And sinful stares

So you must seek out
What your are searching
In all you do
And when you find out
What you are missing
Then your light will shine on through

Take care, beware
Of all you do
For in the end it all
Will come on back to you

A friend, a foe
Do you even know
There was a time you did
But now it’s dead

So you must seek out
What your are searching
In all you do
And when you find out
What you are missing
Then your light will shine on through

You must find peace in yourself
Before loving someone else
Do not sell this life so short
There’s all this and more
A lie is just a lies
There’s nothing to deny
If you feel like you’ve been wronged
Don’t listen to this song
Track Name: Yesterday's Gurl
If not for yesterday’s girl
If not for the love that hurt
You wouldn’t see through all these days
You wouldn’t see diamonds from dirt

Any carry on
You learned to move on too

Because of yesterday’s girl
You left a roof for the sea
But for yesterday’s girl
She didn’t have room thee

She built a wall
Too thick and tall to

Smash them down and feel the sun
Step out from the dark to greet everyone
She was not who you had thought
There is so much more that you’ve been taught

A note to yesterday’s girl
Written in words of heat
“You’ve no sense of hurt
Until you’ve lived like me

I’ve built these walls
Too thick and tall to”

Smash them down and feel the sun
Step out from the dark to greet everyone
She was not who you had thought
There is so much more that you’ve been taught

She built a wall
Too thick and tall to

Smash them down and feel the sun
Step out from the dark to greet everyone
She was not who you had thought
There is so much more that you’ve been taught
Track Name: Savage Soul
I can hear so much in your cries
And I can see so much in your big brown eyes

The lives you’ve left, to never return
All the loves you lost and the loves that you yearned

As you gaze upon a savage soul
A broken spirit
Please remember that we once were young
And had our secrets

At loss for words, you’ve so much to say
Of all the things you’ve seen in your younger days

So new to us, but as old as the sun
Your light shines through it all
My sweet little one

As you gaze upon a savage soul
A broken spirit
Please remember that we once were young
And had our secrets

Believe that our love is so precious
No need to be afraid
If we just say what we are feeling
Our love will guide our way
