Track Name: Sweep Away
We All Have Something That We Want to Forget
Little Bits of Life That We All Regret
Weight of the Guilt Holding You Down Like a Stone
Sounds From Your Closet are the Rattling Bones

Sweep Away
Sweep Away What You Can
Sweep Away
Sweep Away What You Can

You Often Told Me That If You Could Do It Over Again
You’d Wish For Something Different So Your World Would Change
Flashes of Your Life Seem To Hurt Your Eyes
Can’t Lose the Shadow When You Run Towards the Light

Sweep Away
Sweep Away What You Can
Sweep Away
Sweep Away What You Can

Sweep Away
Sweep Away What You Can
Sweep Away
Sweep Away What You Can

We All Have Something That We Want to Forget
Track Name: He Was A Man
He was a man – Who Had Everything He Could Ever Hope For
A Corner Office – On a Very High Floor
And Tailored Made Suits
That Fit Like a Velvet Glove

He was a Man – With a Family and a Two Car Garage
Who Mowed His Own Lawn – Every Weekend
Of His Adult Life
The Greenest Grass You’ve Ever Seen

And Then She Left and Took Half His Heart Away
She Left a Note That Said
She’s Gone Away
So Far Away
So Far Away From Him

He Was a Man – Overboard
Looking For a Rope – Searching For a Light
To Save His Life
Searching For Hope
He Was Going Down – Falling Down a Hole

Because She Left and Took Half His Heart Away
She Left a Note That Said
She’s Gone Away
So Far Away
So Very Far Away From Him

He Was a Man
A Perfect Man
A Lonely Man

And Now He’s Gone
Track Name: Three Days More
See The Light
Feel The Light as It’s Shining Through - Moving Away From You

What Would You Say?
What Would You Do If We Had a Second Chance Together?

Three Days More Is All I Ask For
Three More Days I Wish I Had With You.

Don’t Cry – Don’t You Cry
It Will Be Alright
It Will Be Alright

I’m Not Afraid
I’m Not Afraid of Letting You Go – of Letting Go

Three Days More Is All I Ask For
Three More Days I Wish I Had With You

Don’t Be Afraid
I’m Not Afraid
I’m Not Afraid To Go
Track Name: Open Letter to GOD
I Know It’s Been Awhile Since We Thought Of You
Instead - We’ve Been Organizing Friends Requests
And Watching Repeats of “Walking Dead”

And All This Useless Media Is Filling Up Our Heads
Accept Our Sincere Apology As We Try To Move Ahead

There Are Millions Of Black Hearts - Diamonds Are Hard To Find
Don’t Turn Around To Save Us
You’ll Only Be Wasting – Your Time

We Can’t Place Our Hands Together Or Bow Our Heads To Pray
We’re Perpetually Distracted – The Devices Get In The Way

You’ve Done Your Best – You’ve Done The Best
And We All Should Be Ashamed

Accept My Sincere Apology
Accept Our Sincerest Apologies

I feel I have To Say This As We All Realize You Try
Walk Away, Don’t Save Us – You’ll Only Be Wasting Time

There Are Millions Of Black Hearts and Diamonds Are Hard To Find
Don’t Turn Around To Save Us
You’ll Only Be Wasting – Your Time

Accept My Sincere Apology
Accept Our Sincere Apology

For Our Decadent Behavior as If There Is No Savior
Walk Away, Don’t Save Us – You’ll Only Be Wasting Time
Don’t Turn Around To Save Us – You’ll Only Be Wasting Time

Accept My Sincere Apology
Accept Our Sincerest Apologies
Track Name: Push it All Away (Hope + Change)
If We Can Hear It Now
And It’s Getting Louder Should We Push It All Away?

If We Can See It Here
Nice And Clear Could We Make It Go Away?

Could We Make It Go Away?
Could We Push It All Away?

If You Could Sing a Song Would You Sing It Loud?
Should You Sing It Loud All Day?
If You Love To Move
If You Love To Dance
Could You Shake it Up All Day?

Could They Take It All Away?
Could They Take It All Away From You?
You Wanted Hope And Change
Will They Take It All Away?

Instrumental Break

Could They Take It All Away?
Could They Take It All Away From You?
You Wanted Hope And Change
Will They Take It All Away - From You?
Track Name: The Lies You Leave Behind
It’s Been Awhile I Still Feel Nothing
It’s Been Awhile - Should I Feel Something?
All I Had to Say - I said To You

No One Will Remember - Nothing Really Matters Anymore

And The Lies You Leave Behind Define You
All of the Secrets Now In Full Bloom
So Many Words That Never Rang True

Nothing Really Matters - No One Will Remember Anymore

Like a Bird Inside An Open Cage - Afraid to Up and Fly Away
You Took Your Time to Let It Go – To Let It Go
You Took Your Time to Kiss The Sky
I asked If You Saw The Light - You Never Answered – Never Said a Word
We’ll Never Know
Never Know

Your Empty Life Seems Emptier Now
Peeking Through the Holes In The Walls Around You
That You Built So Long Ago

No One Will Remember - Nothing Really Matters Anymore

Like a Bird Inside An Open Cage - Afraid to Up and Fly Away
You Took Your Time to Let It Go – To Let It All Go
You Took Your Time to Kiss The Sky
I asked If You Saw The Light - You Never Answered – Never Said a Word
We’ll Never Know
Never Know

It’s Been Awhile I Still Feel Nothing
It’s Been Awhile - Should I Feel Something?

Took Your Time to Let It Go And Kiss The Sky
Track Name: Time Moves On
We Were Going Down To Virginia In a Vega We Once Had
The Three Of Us In The Back
In The Front Were Mom and Dad
In My Arms I held a Guitar and We Were Playing Beatle Songs
Ain’t it Funny How Time Moves On

As The Road Rolled Beneath Us and The Stars Seemed To Come Along
Moments Seemed Like Forever and Nothing Could Go Wrong
In My Arms I held a Guitar and We Were Singing Beatle Songs
Ain’t it Funny How Time Moves On

Instrumental Break

In My Arms I held this Guitar - We Were Singing Beatle Songs
Ain’t it Funny How Time Moves On
Ain’t it Funny How Time Moves On

Ain’t it Funny How Time Moves On
Track Name: One Moment in Life
Yeah, She Spoke to Me In Man-Ray Picture
Everything Black + White - Down To The Wire
Unlike Me, You See, She’s Wrapped Too Tight
It Comes From The Pressures That Have Built Up Inside

Just Another Day In Life

As She Writes Her Name Upon The Glass
Using a Canvas Made From One Simple Breath
Fingerpainting With The Lunar Backlight
This Was a Moment Where Everything’s Right

Just Another Day In Life


This Day Is Gone Now And My Candles Burn
Overflow Feelings – My Thoughts Into Words
Sleep Takes Over As I Finish To Write
Completing These Pages – These Moments In Life

One Moment In Life
Track Name: Losing Her Again
Once in a lifetime someone comes along and goes for that ride
Shares all your visions your feelings (and) ultimately your life

I can’t imagine her slipping from my hands and fading away
I couldn’t fathom losing her again
Losing her again

It’s like a flipbook colored scrapbook
When thinking back and closing my eyes

I breath her in laced together intimately intertwined

I can’t imagine her slipping from my hands and fading away
I couldn’t fathom losing her again
Losing her again

I can’t imagine her slipping from my hands and fading away
I can’t imagine her slipping from my hands and fading away
Losing her again

Losing her again
