Track Name: The Cloudy Haze
no matter the cloud, no matter the haze
it's crystal clear, your fateful gaze
my mind is locked, all thoughts of you
i can't escape, that's how you knew
i fell in the trap, i'm under the spell
i'm lost in the maze, i know you can tell
i reach for your hand, i can't find my way
i can't believe, you don't feel the same

so why do i feel so attached to you
why does my heart burn so bright for you
and why won't you give in to this perfect dream of love
that waits so patiently for us

CH

you left me here
jealous and alone
my mind will wander
to fill in the unknown

teasing my soul
with what it so desperately needs
knowing how much
it fucks with me

CH

and you say you care
but when i need you
you are never there

and you say you love me
but that's only a carrot
that you hang above me

CH
Track Name: Close My Eyes
i watch as you lie sleeping in my bed
and i wonder of the dreams running through your head
words come as the thoughts spin in your mind
i heard what you said but i don't believe the lies

it's the same thing every day
i reach out to hold you
but you push me away

i know it could be alright
this could last forever
if we hold on to the light

you found my only fear
when i opened up my heart
then watched you disappear

this love i feel is strong
but you don't seem to care
and now we're going wrong

so i will close my eyes
and wish it all away
as i float off to the skies
Track Name: You Will Never Know
i'm tired of this game
not having fun anymore
it's time for you to go
just leave and close the door

the love i feel is strong
but it will fade away
you keep dragging me along
i won't last another day

go on and run away
you can't feel anything anyway
why do I waste all of my time
when you treat me so unkind

CHORUS
it's a shame you couldn't see
all the things that we could be
but I can let it go
and you will never know
Track Name: No Hope For Me
here I am alone out in the rain
watch it fall and wash away my pain
you don't care you always run away
use me up then tell me i'm to blame

all i ever wanted was everything
or maybe just one chance for you to see
that i could give you all the love you need
you just laughed and said there is no hope for me

my crying eyes are disguised by the rain
no one sees me hide away in shame
you don't care you always run away
take my heart and flush it down the drain

all i ever wanted was everything
or maybe just one chance for you to see
that i could give you all the love you need
you just laughed and said there is no hope for me

and there's nothing that you ever need from me
and in your heart there is no feeling at all for me
and i can be your friend but that's all I'll ever be
Track Name: A Better Day
you break my heart every time you leave
just another promise that you couldn't keep
you let me fall and i hit the ground
all you ever do is bring me down

now I know I need to go
I've got to get away
I won't come running back
I will find a better day

you said you were my pot of gold
the one that I'd been waiting for
you wanted me to hang around
you had to know I wanted more

now I know I need to go
I've got to get away
I won't come running back
I will find a better day

and now I'm so lost
you won't take my hand
you want so much from me
but you can't understand

why am I holding on
I don't want you to go
this feeling getting strong
it's all I want to know

even though I need to go
I just can't get away
I will come running back
I have found a better day
Track Name: Goldfire
get on the ride and let's fucking go
what i'm doing to myself i really don't know
if it feels good do it now don't hold back
the stars will shine a light on all I lack

here again
i can take it
iron will
you won't break it
hearts of gold
hearts on fire
all is true
we're all liars

you won't bring me down this time
i'll be holding you up
you can fly me with your wings
soon we'll see what fate will bring
Track Name: Hold On To Let Go
on occasion i dream of you
i remember the days
one more time before the memory
fades into the haze

and you know I like to think of you
i remember the days
long before the clouds of darkness came
and took you away

i want to hold on
i need to let go

there was nothing I could ever do
you were set in your ways
all the love and light i conjured up
you remained unfazed

one more time i'd like to dream of you
they were beautiful days
maybe someday i will see it again
your amazing ways

i want to hold on
i need to let go

i want to let go
Track Name: Heartsick
i know on my own
i am whole inside
but i long for the one
who will stand right by my side

don't torture me with friendship
no matter how pure
my heart sick and dying
and desperate for the cure

who will dance inside
in my dream of love
i beg and i plead
i've waited for so long

don't torture me with friendship
no matter how pure
my heart sick and dying
and desperate for the cure

all the love inside
i give it to myself
oh lord please let me
share it with someone else
Track Name: Let This Die
I never had a chance
i let you too far in
now i will shut you out
you won't know me again

destroying all you touch
i know i care too much
and now it's all a lie
and we can let this die

you could have been the one
we could have lived the dream
all those things i said
you thought i didn't mean

destroying all you touch
i know i care too much
and now it's all a lie
and we can let this die

your heart is far too cold
and locked up in a cell
trying to love you
turned into living hell
Track Name: The Open Gate
and then the gates were opened
and my soul could fly so free
as i opened up my eyes
and I saw everything

the vision became cloudy
but the light i still could see
and now that the fog has lifted
all is as it should be

you walked me through the darkness
refusing to let go
I tried my best to run away
from all that you did know

but my sorrow was in vain
there was no need to doubt
you watched me as i struggled
but you knew i'd figure it out

and now with peace of mind
my soul will sit & wait
the answer is in the stars
and i submit to my fate
