Track Name: Burn the Effigy
Verse 1:
You are the flickering light in the distance
A shadow on the line

You are the sun behind the mountains
The moon behind the sky

You are now just a memory
A fading face in my mind

You are not my day
You are not my night

Chorus 1:
Burn the effigy now
I don't want any of you around

Verse 2:
You were the echo in my canyon
Now lost in the wind

You were the lead on my paper
Now you're ash in a pit

You were the kiss on my forehead
But now a ghost in my bed

You were my lover, my friend, my future
and nothing in the end

Chorus 2:
Burn the effigy now
I don't want any of you around
Take all the things that you said to me
I don't want any apologies
Track Name: All I Have
Verse 1:
The moment I forgave you
I felt the loss deep in the dark

The moment I forgave you
I felt my eyes return to light

Pre-Chorus:
All I have is this brokenness I feel
All I want is this brokenness to heal

Chorus 1:
Please bury it away it's haunting me
Please take it all away from me to see

Please hide it all away, it's killing me
Please take it all away, from me

Verse 2:
The moment I forgave you
I felt the knife turn in my sides

The moment I forgave you
I felt my life step into line

Pre-Chorus:
All I have is this brokenness I feel
All I want is this brokenness to heal

Chorus 2:
Please bury it away it's haunting me
Please take it all away from me to see

Please hide it all away it's killing me
Please take it all away from me to see
Track Name: Now Even More Than
Verse 1:
I don't care where you've been
and I don't care who've let in

Because I love you the same
As if it still feels like the very first day

When you gave your hand to me
We lived with no plans of where to be

My life seemed so much brighter
Living care free in this world with you my darling girl

Chorus:
I would take you back
Now even more than
I would hold nothing back
Even though it's hard when
This whole bridge only seems to fit one of us
But I would take you back
Now even more than

Verse 2:
Waiting on this broken clock
With hands that spin slower than we want

Its turning wheels have turned to rust
And it just sits back and it laughs at us

But trust me, my dear, this won't stop me
We're stronger than they are fonder from afar

But trust me, my dear, this won't stop me
Remember who we were so, darling, rest assured
Track Name: The Sun Will Rise
Verse 1:
Just take your time away from me
A chance to find yourself again

No guilt or fear will find you here
A chance to find yourself again

Chorus 1:
Can you feel the fire that could take us higher?
Make us burn much brighter than we ever knew

Can you feel the fire that could take us higher?
I am not a liar, I am just a fool, for you

Verse 2:
Broken and lost, torn in two
A chance to find myself again

Lost in bardo, I may never know
How I will find myself again

Chorus 2:
Can you feel the fire that could take us higher?
Make us burn much brighter than we ever knew

Can you feel the fire that could take us higher?
I am not a liar, I am just a fool, for you

Verse 3:
The sun will rise sooner than we know
So don't despise the thoughts that let me in

The sun will rise and then we'll know
Look in my eyes and see yourself again
Track Name: When You See My Face
Verse 1:
Does your heart ache, does your heart break?
When you see my face, when you hear my name

Does your watch stand still as time, the healer, becomes ill?
When you see my face, When you hear my name

Chorus 1:
Do you think of me when you're alone at night?
Cause when I'm alone I think of...

Verse 2:
Do your knees shake, do your hands quake?
When you see my face, when you hear my name

Does the bottle touch your lips? Does your mind become a sinking ship?
When you see my face, when you hear my name

Chorus 2:
Do you think of me when you're alone at night?
Cause when I'm alone I think of...

Do you still think of me when you're alone at night?
Cause when I'm alone I think of...

Outro:
When I see your face, when I hear your name
Track Name: Heartbreak Hill
Verse 1:
I took my love to heartbreak hill
I never meant to see it killed

But ever since that fateful day
I never had the chance to say

Chorus:
On that day I remember
In the time of December
All the while I saw it coming
I should have been running

Verse 2:
So summer came to heartbreak hill
It promised love and all its thrills

But love is such a fickle friend
Autumn comes and summer ends
Track Name: These Sparks
Chorus 1:
Before the week of your absence
A week of you leaving
You kiss me now

With these thoughts and these yearnings
Our hearts nearly burning
You leave me now

Verse 1:
"I will follow you if you lead"
But you never gave words meaning
So please tell me, please tell me

Can you feel when my heart aches
But you'll never know how it breaks
To pieces, to pieces

Verse 2:
"I know it doesn't matter now
But I love you and I'll follow too
If you ask me, please ask me"

I will lead you if you'll follow me
Here's my past and all my sufferings
My weakness, your judgement

Chorus 2:
Before the week of your absence
A week of you leaving
You kiss me now

With these thoughts and these yearnings
Our hearts nearly burning
You leave me now

Bridge:
So leave it there
In the past you'll stay away from me
For ever being a memory

So goodbye my love
These sparks they were not made for us
Track Name: You Are Gone
Verse 1:
She said, "This is not for me. I've finally found some clarity.
I am scared of you and me and what that means."

Pre-Chorus:
She stood in my door
Neither in, neither out

But I need in or I need out
So she went out

Chorus 1:
You were the one I knew
But now I'll never know

I thought if I held you close
You would never let go

Verse 2:
I hope you find a man who gets your needs
He'll finally understand all you wanna be

And I am not that man and no I'll never be
That's what she said to me

Pre-Chorus:
She stood in my door
Neither in, neither out

But I need in or I need out
So she went out

Chorus 2:
You were the one I knew
But now I'll never know

I thought if I held you close
You would never let go

I don't want this to end tonight
But now we'll never know

If our lives will turn out alright
Only time will show
Track Name: Apt 203
Verse 1:
Today has come and gone
Tomorrow seems unsure
For me
For you

Today has come and gone
Another lesson learned
For me
For you

Verse 2:
This love has come along
It's still here with you and here with me

This love is what is strong
It helps me see straight through this misery

Chorus:
This is real
This love we feel

This is real
Our hearts they will heal

Bridge:
All I ever knew was you here
All I thought was true is moving on

All I ever knew was you here
All I am is lost since you've been gone
Track Name: Are You Alone Tonight?
Are you alone most every nights?
Are you alone when you sleep tonight?
Are you alone most every nights?
Are you alone in your bed tonight?
