Track Name: Southern Summer Rain
That southern summer rain awakening my senses
In the land of front porch swings and small white picket fences
Years away I used to play

In that southern summer rain blanketing the garden
Where my grandpa used to sing “Goodnight Irene”
His eyes were so light-hearted
He made me laugh; I'll never forget that

Take me back, I took for granted all the joys of southern rain
It's not the same sweet simple
Time has taken you away from me
So I'll close my eyes and you'll come to life
In that southern summer rain

That southern summer rain tapping at my window
I'm lying here awake beside this sleeping love I've come to know
It feels just right
That it's raining tonight

Take me back, I took for granted all the joys of southern rain
It's not the same sweet simple
Time has taken you away from me
So I'll close my eyes and you'll come to life
In that southern summer rain
Track Name: The Burning Days
One step closer to the grand finale war
Did I make this bed we lie in?
Always pushing for the way it was before
Can you blame me for tryin'?

Little love, I could take you back
I can keep your heart intact
No, don't you let it fade
Don't lose sight of the burning days

Were my beckonings not few and far between
Am I mistaken?
Was your reckoning a slow, long-lived retreat
A love forsaken

Little love, I could take you back
I can keep your heart intact
No, don't you let it fade
Don't lose sight of the burning days

I'm a far, far cry from gone
Some might say I've been holding on
To this ember for far too long
Won't you help me, babe, to prove them wrong

Little love, I could take you back
I can keep your heart intact
No, don't you let it fade
Don't lose sight of the burning days
Don't lose sight of the burning days
Don't lose sight of the burning days
Track Name: All The Days
Could you spare another hour tonight?
The winter winds are growin'; it's a bad time for alone
California seems to do it right, that's the most I know
It's been years since I could call her home

I've adjusted to the ramblin' life
Addicted to the run, eager to be done
Put my trust in if the moment's right, it's all or none
I'm thinkin' you could be the one

All the days I spent without you
Feel like such a waste
All the ways I've gone, every whisper to move on
Make it easier to stay

Would you entertain this thought of mine
And hold on for a while, it's worth a little trial
See, I've had my fill of city lights and lonesome nights
So would you stay a little while?

'Cause all the days I spent without you
Feel like such a waste
All the ways I've gone, every whisper to move on
Make it easier to stay

Oh I want you by my side again
Wade if you want but I'm diving in
Made up my mind and I'm just dying to begin

All the days I spent without you
Feel like such a waste
All the ways I've gone, every whisper to move on
Make it easier to stay

All the ways I've gone, every whisper to move on
Make it easier to stay

Could you spare another hour tonight?
Track Name: I Wanted To Be Saved
A reminder to stand tall
Under ceilings low
It was easy to forget
It was easy to be small

Just before a sudden snow
The first flake kissed the ground
I assured you I was lost
You assured me I'd been found

I wanted to be saved, but not like this
Drowning in a sea of helplessness
It was easier to breathe before we kissed;
You took my breath away

If it was cold that winter night,
I was unaware
You embraced my every flaw
You erased my every care

Now a year has crept away
I feel you by my side
And the passing of the time
Never fails to make me cry

I wanted to be saved, but not like this
Drowning in a sea of helplessness
It was easier to breathe before we kissed;
You took my breath away

And all the air surrounding me
Never tasted so sweet
And all the ways I used to be
Never felt so free

I wanted to be saved, just like this
Floating on a sea of helplessness
So much easier to breathe after each kiss
You take my breath away

I'm trying to believe that this is real
Praying I can give my heart until
All that's left of it is yours alone to steal
Like you stole my breath away
Track Name: Secret Place
Not too very far away
There's a secret place I used to know
If I were to leave today
Could I convince you to follow?
Come on, let's go

It's a stage of stone out in the woods
Our spotlight was the sun
Where far too many times I stood
Til the weary day was done

I've been down every trail in this open space
You take the high road and I'll take the low road, let's race
Should the water rise, you'll be safe up high
In our secret place

Heard you may have lost your way
That's an easy thing to do these days
Someone came and shook your faith
You're lookin' for the nearest escape

I've been down every trail in this open space
You take the high road and I'll take the low road, let's race
Should the water rise, you'll be safe up high
In our secret place

And that sky blue will remind you that we are young
And that sweet breeze through the oak trees is saying, son

I've been down every trail in this open space
You take the high road and I'll take the low road, let's race
Should the water rise, you'll be safe up high
Even time cannot erase
Our secret place
Track Name: I'll Be Yours
Shadows that leap across the wall
Count them as sleep begins to fall
I am your sheep; I'll keep you safe from harm

Billowing in the salted breeze
Guiding you through a sea of dreams
I am your sail, rocking you in my arms

If the moon decides to shine for you no more
And the stars desert the sky through heaven's door
When you're left with just the night and for a light you implore
I'll be yours, oh I'll be yours

Silver and gold and rubies gleam
Pirates attack with violent schemes
I am your shield, blocking their wielded swords

Tossing and tumbling, restless sleep
Sinking and crumbling, in too deep
I am your wave; I'll lift you to safety's shore

If the moon decides to shine for you no more
And the stars desert the sky through heaven's door
When you're left with just the night and for a light you implore
I'll be yours, oh I'll be yours
Track Name: Let Me Love You
I believe in no regrets
With that said, if I did, a couple come to mind
Convinced myself that I paid all debts
All I wanna do is call and ask if there's still time

Let me love you, let me love you now
Let me love you, let me love you now
Cause I'm sinking and I don't know how to not

Funny when the flood washed the soil away
Things we buried long ago floated to the top
Maybe it all was a big mistake
Your face and all these words running through my head and it won't stop

Let me love you, let me love you now
Let me love you, let me love you now
Cause I'm sinking and I don't know how to not

Stubborn I can be til I get what I want
Then when I have it I throw it all away
Admitting I was wrong was the easiest part
The hardest is waiting to hear if you'll say

Let me love you, let me love you now
Let me love you, let me love you now
Cause I'm sinking and I don't know how to not
Track Name: Nothing You Touch
The oil from your hand ruins a butterfly's wings
By the time I was five, I'd learned these kinds of things
Pretty to look at and precious to hold
No, nothing you touch turns to gold

A frog is a tadpole you had to let grow
A sunflower's high but it starts down below
Everything dies, when you're young you don't know
No, nothing you touch turns to gold

And with the passing of the days,
How do you let them fall away?
Even the sunset seems to call,
You never can hold on to it all

A wave has to crash and then no longer be
But it wasn't a wave, just a part of the sea
A ripple's a gift that you start with a stone
No, nothing you touch turns to gold
Nothing you touch turns to gold
Nothing you touch turns to gold
Track Name: I Would For You
Hanging above is a Cheshire cat moon
With half a smile he'll vanish soon
I know it's never pleasant to be taken for a fool
But I would for you

Tunneling low through a hole in the ground
A brave young soul burrows down
It's hard to carve a way out with no sunlight shining through
But I would for you

Baby are you lonesome tonight?
I can tell there's something on your mind
I can see the empty in your eyes and I can't fill the void, it's true
But if I could, I would for you

Weathered and worn is a dated cartoon
Often played, rarely viewed
It's not easy to appease when you've been faded out and used
But I would for you

Baby are you lonesome tonight?
I can tell there's something on your mind
I can see the empty in your eyes and I can't fill the void, it's true
But if I could, I would for you

Where have you gone?
Are you somewhere in the wind?
Are you travelin' on your own?

Baby are you lonesome tonight?
I can tell there's something on your mind
I can see the empty in your eyes and I can't fill the void, it's true
But if I could, I would for you
I would for you
Track Name: That Wouldn't Be Me
I could pose as a weakling, unashamed of deceiving
I could make you believe my dreams were full
I could strike up a smile in the face of denial
and I'm sure you'd be sold

I was never the one to hold my tongue
That was never the way I got things done
I could let you forget me with the greatest of ease
But that wouldn't be me

I could call it a game now, I could be on my way out
I could lay down this pair of wings to fold
I could be more forgiving, I could be less forbidding
I could not be so bold

I was never the one to hold my tongue
That was never the way I got things done
I could let you forget me with the greatest of ease
But that wouldn't be me
That wouldn't be me

And the longer they call for surrender
The longer they call for my pride
I will never be one for pretending
I've got nothing to hide

I was never the one to hold my tongue
That was never the way I got things done
I could let you forget me with the greatest of ease
But that wouldn't be me
That wouldn't be me.
Track Name: When The Sun Goes Down
I wake long before the alarm
You know that's new for me
It's easy without your sweet arms
to tempt me back to sleep

I won't pretend it was wrong
These are better days
Wiser apart in our strong march through the change

But when the sun goes down,
When the sun goes down,
When the sun goes down...
Do you miss me?

Telephone calls from the friends
I haven't seen in years
After all of the time I spent crying
I'm laughing through the tears

No, I won't pretend it was wrong
There are no more fights
Nothing to do but press on,
Reaching new heights

But when the sun goes down,
When the sun goes down,
When the sun goes down...
Do you miss me?

You weren't mine
I wasn't yours
Just two people in love and it ran its course
So, we leapt and fell
I still wish you well

How many times will I wake
From dreaming you're still here?
Before I can sleep through the night,
Before you disappear?

I won't pretend it was wrong
These are better days
Soon you'll have somebody new taking my place

But when the sun goes down,
When the sun goes down,
When the sun goes down...
Will you miss me?
Will you miss me?
