Track Name: Hold On
hold on to me
hold on to me

bring your heavy heart
bring your pain
the breaking of the shell
is not in vain

drink the bitter cup
drink the fear
lips they set aflame
through sacred tears

hold on to me
hold on to me
Track Name: Used to Know
when i wake up
from this nightmare
i'll be coming home

when i get there
i won't sleep there
i will rise with the sun

i'd rather get lost in the stars
than find my way back
to your heart, to your heart
and i'd rather die all alone
than have to live with
someone i used to know
used to know, used to know

when i leave there
you will see that
the early bird gets the worm

when i wake up
from this daydream
i'll be coming home

i'd rather get lost in the stars
than find my way back
to your heart, to your heart
and i'd rather die all alone
than have to live with
someone i used to know
used to know, used to know
used to know, used to know
Track Name: Found My Way
i was a wandering
you came to lead me
i had a sickness
you came to heal me
you came to heal me

i am a wretched
you came to save me
i felt so empty
you came to fill me
you came to fill me

and now i’ve found my way

i was so hopeless
you came to save me
i might get lost but
you're there to find me
you’re there to find me

and now i’ve found my way

i was so hungry
you came to feed me
i was a wandering
you came to lead me
you came to lead me
Track Name: Mockingbird
mockingbird don't you mock no more
i'm sick and tired and my brain is sore

mocking proud as you sing your tune
making noise as you perch and croon

i'm sorry friend, but you got to leave
your same old songs have got me peeved

it’s been fun but you got to go
come by someday and say hello

please forgive for what i said
i was out of touch i'd lost my head

you're a sweet old bird and i miss your songs
i want to harmonize and sing along

i'm sorry friend that i was cruel
didn't mean to be such a fool

it’s been hard without you near
come back my friend i'll lend my ear
come back my friend i need you here
come back my friend your home is here
Track Name: Junebug
the way you look
makes me wanna look at you
the way you talk
makes me wanna talk with you

my love for you
goes higher than any aeroplane can fly
my love, it’s true

my love for you
is brighter than the brightest star up in the sky
my love, it’s true

the way you smile
i can’t help but flash one back
the way you walk
makes me wanna walk with you

my love for you
is bigger than the biggest mountain you’ll climb
my love, it’s true

my love for you
is deeper than the deepest valley that you’ll find
my love, it’s true

my love for you is
my love for you is true
Track Name: I Wanna Live
i wanna live
in a land, in a land
deep beneath, the deep blue sea

i wanna live
in a land, in a land
high above, getting outside of here

‘cause i can't breathe inside these walls
no i can’t breathe, no not at all

i wanna die
in a place, in a place
far from here, where no one’s near me at all

i wanna die
in a place, in a place
i can’t be found, no one around to bother me

‘cause i can’t breathe inside these walls
no i can’t breathe, no not at all
if only i could understand
that i don’t have the master plan
Track Name: The Wind
when you’re dead and gone, and memories fade
will your soul live on, beyond the grave

will it blow away, will it blow away
with the wind, with the wind
with the wind, with the wind

as the days go on, i'll still be here
all feelings gone, they disappear

will it blow away, will it blow away
with the wind, with the wind
with the wind, with the wind

but i'll be here for good
at least for now, at least for now,
you'll believe my words
at least for now, at least for now, at least for now

so the end has come, i slam the door
the fear sits deep, as silence roars
and you blew away, and you blew away
with the wind, with the wind
with the wind, with the wind
Track Name: Shadow Puppets
(instrumental)
Track Name: Home (I Am)
i've been wandering
i've been wandering
too long, too long

i've been dreaming
i've been dreaming
too long, too long

days slip by like clouds, they're floating
too fast, too fast, too fast

nights they creep in, slowly seeping
through cracks, through cracks, through cracks

walls they cave in, only saving
our souls, our souls, our souls

rivers dry up, as i’m swimming
upstream, upstream, upstream

(instrumental break)

doors they open, chains are broken
i'm home, i'm home, i'm home

i'm home
