Kept inside By my window Bleed me dry, ‘till I’m old But tonight, I’m on your level baby Won’t you show me what I’ve been missing I’ve been on the inside looking out, upon you and me ‘Till I go on the road In this town It’s like a pillow Sleep so sound But you can’t wake up But tonight, I’m on your level baby Won’t you take me inside your home ‘Cause I’ll follow you, to the bottom keep on smiling ‘Till I lose my control Feel alive No more pain I free my mind At the expense of my brain But tonight, I’m on your level baby Now I’ll show you something, you can believe in Because now I take my strides nice and slow like they do down the street Till I find me a home

Why Can’t I say you’re the one When the love for you Is real I think of you All damn day But I can’t seem to make my play Why Do I feel it’s true That I’ll be moving on, on my own Was chemistry Not enough To hold me Well I welcomed you  To my world But I never did See through to you, so I’ll make my way I’ve been waiting all day Just to find what to say I’ve been waiting all day My Is it hard To move on When the loss of you is real I refuse to keep putting One foot behind the other So you’re the one I have to let go Harmony makes me feel so free Do you agree You’re new to me and will you sing with me Easily So I’ll welcome you  To my world If you just let me through to yours so I’ll make my way I’ve been waiting all day Just to find what to say I’ve been waiting all day

I Wonder what it’s like To keep expectations light And to stop before you give it all away It is just not sitting right To give all my love and light Then to cast it off like it’s some game that we both have to play Don’t say you want me this time That smile’s just as good as a lie You know that you won’t be mine If you ever followed through you wouldn’t be such a waste of my time I wonder what it’s like To take only what is right To invest and not to slowly chip away I know you like to love me but you Haven’t thought this through and the Promises you made to someone else just follow you, don’t you see? Don’t say you want me this time That smile’s just as good as a lie You know that you won’t be mine If you won’t say you love me, give me some piece of mind

Silhouette 02:47
I awoke, suddenly It was you, speaking to me The love that I missed, was coming through me Into you, but it was just me What I’d do to stay up in here Satisfied, no worries to fear But it’s never like my sweet reverie Featuring you, your body and me Come to me slowly I don’t want you to disappear I know I’m lonely But with my eyes closed, you’re here Feeling so close my emotion is true Pleasure like this seems to good to be true Takes me to times when these feelings were new And you were mine Come to me slowly I don’t want you to disappear I know I’m lonely But with my eyes closed, you’re here

The Thief 04:36
If I knew I could do These things, I’ve been up to Then I wouldn't have made you The bad one If I knew Why you threw This thing, we’d been up to Then I wouldn't have blamed you For what you planned to be If I lost you when I was looking for something than I’m right where I started And when I try to find the words for why I'm empty handed If I found you when I was running from something than I’m losing my breath And if the way I feel for you was stolen than I’m the thief When I knew You withdrew And the love, faded from view What was left Was fleeting Carry on Love is strong We have both, moved along You and I, yes we tried, but sometimes It just ain’t meant to be. If I lost you when I was looking for something than I’m right where I started And when I try to find the words for why I'm empty handed If I found you when I was running from something than I’m losing my breath And if the way I feel for you was stolen than I’m the thief
