Track Name: Wait In Line
Take the train, there's one coming in now
5 o'clock waiting the numbers decide how
I just try and i go my way
Left outside it's all the same.

You got to wait in line to get somewhere
You got to wait in line to get somewhere

Walk the tight rope
Feel this night fall
Tripping in a place where all they're giving you is lies
To hide all the truths
I know my way home but i don't see straight.

You've got to wait in line to get somewhere
You've got to wait in line to get somewhere

Weeks by weeks what's all this worth now?
What's going on, what's going, do you hear?
Can you see it's a waste as you wash it down.
Getting lost in crowds, there's no way out.

All this lack of action
Everything's like clockwork
Walls are closing in now
Make a break and run

You've got to wait in line to get somewhere
You've got to wait in line to get somewhere

Run.
Track Name: The Bright Side
Sit and watch the day fade into night
Watch their little faces turn away
Your little broken wing won't let you fly
But don't be afraid to try.

Come and take a ride on love's air ballon ride
Come and see the bright side
Come and take a ride on love's air ballon ride
I'll take you to the bright side.

From the west and over to the east
Help is on it's way now rest your mind
You're not alone so there's no need to hide.
Don't run away this time.

Come and take a ride on love's air ballon ride
Come and see the bright side
Come and take a ride on love's air ballon ride
I'll take you to the bright side.

I'll take you to the bright side.
Track Name: Moon
Moon are you lonely like I am
Moon are you trying like I am
Moon you come and go then you die
Moon you look so full, so am I
Moon can I shine, moon can I shine like you.

Moon you look down with bright eyes
Moon can you see why we're all crying
Moon you come and you go
Moon you need a friend that you know

Moon can I shine, moon can I shine like you.
Moon can I shine, moon can I shine like you.
Track Name: Going Nowhere
Standing high beside the lighthouse
Trying to get you ashore
You're sailing for every day and every night and every way
I'll see you again in time and tide

We're all going nowhere
We're all going nowhere
We're all going nowhere
Just like a moth to the light we're blinded by desire

Before you know while falling leaves its winter
We've missed the train now everything's the same
I told you girl now watch out boy
That this is not a game and this is no toy
Be careful what you wish for to the wind

We're all going nowhere
We're all going nowhere
We're all going nowhere
Just like a moth to the light we're blinded by desire

I won't ask you anymore

We're all going nowhere
We're all going nowhere
We're all going nowhere
Just like a moth to the light we're blinded by desire
Track Name: It's True It's You
Hold me, tell me that you love me
You're the only one who ever really knew
Dancing, laughing in the moonlight
Waiting for the sunrise, only me and you

Climbing mountains in the springtime
We can go to places that we never knew
Taken by so many faces
Smiling happy faces, everyone is new

Don't try and hide it if it's from within
Because it's true it's true it's you
Don't try and fight it if it's from within
Because it's true it's true it's you

You take everything I thought
And put it into words that I could never do
Kiss me lay right down beside me
Watching all the clouds make shapes of white and blue

Laying underneath the starlight
Every night is just right when I'm here with you
Slow dance in the face of romance
I think of you smiling and it gets me through

Don't try and hide it if it's from within
Because it's true it's true it's you
Don't try and fight it if it's from within
Because it's true it's true it's you

Hold me, tell me that you love me
You're the only one who ever really knew
Dancing, laughing in the moonlight
Waiting for the sunrise, only me and you

Don't try and hide it if it's from within
Because it's true it's true it's you
Don't try and fight it if it's from within
Because it's true it's true it's you

You Are.
Track Name: After All
You're misunderstood girl.
Beauty's on the inside
You're misunderstood boy
It's okay to cry through the night.
Centuries are passing, when are we to find the time.
Take me to the clouds now, feet right off the ground I fly.

After all that we've been through my heart is left for you
After all that we've been through.
After all that we've been through my heart is left in two
After all that we've been through.

You're misunderstood boy
Beauty's on the inside
You're misunderstood girl
It's okay to cry through the night.
Memories are lasting everyone I'll hide for the time
Take me to the clouds now, feet right off the ground I fly.

After all that we've been through my heart is left for you
After all that we've been through.
After all that we've been through my heart is left in two
After all that we've been through.

We'll go to the other side
And undo wrong and make it right
This is your day, it's all you'll ever know.
There comes a time in your life
To take that dream and come alive
This is you day, it's all you'll every know.

After all that we've been through my heart is left for you
After all that we've been through.
After all that we've been through my heart is left in two
After all that we've been through.
Track Name: Call It Out
The people are shouting your name
Look around and you'll find the way
The rain starts to fall and your feet are scratched up
And your breaking down.

Lights in the evening fade
The sun tries to hide away
If the only thing left is a smile on your face
Let it feed your mind.

Call it out, call it out, call it out now.
Sing it out, sing it out, sing it out now.
Call it out, call it out, call it out now.
You're all you are tonight.

It's the truth, it's for the dreamers, the lazy man, the poor man,
the rich man too, the fighters, the lovers, the sinners, the sea,
the lost and the doubtful, then there's you and there's me.

Call it out, call it out, call it out now.
Sing it out, sing it out, sing it out now.
Call it out, call it out, call it out now.
You're all you are tonight.

This is me, this is you, this is me.

Call it out, call it out, call it out now.
Sing it out, sing it out, sing it out now.
Call it out, call it out, call it out now.
You're all you are tonight.
