Track Name: Free
When the white dove sings her song
I will carry you along
To the place where dreamers dream
It's more than it seems

When your cross comes down on you
And you don't know what to do
Take my hand and you will see
Just put your weight on me

Keep your faith in me
Keep your hope in me
Keep your love in me
And I'll set you free

When you cry your salty tears
I will keep you from your fears
I will keep you wrapped up tight
And see you through the night

When you're lying in your bed
There is nothing left to be said
Just open up your heart
And then we can start

Keep your faith in me
Keep your hope in me
Keep your love in me
And I'll set you free

There is nothing I won't do for you
There is nothing I won't do

When you're falling on your knees
I'm the only one who sees
I will love you more and more
I will love you more

Keep your faith in me
Keep your hope in me
Keep your love in me
And I'll set you free
Yeah, I'll set you free
And we can be free
Track Name: Fall for You
Another day wasted, it's all the same
But still I cannot let go of her name
And I feel it
And I'm not about to turn my back this time

And I keep falling more in love with you
With the candles burning and the water rising too
And I feel it
And I swear to God I won't let you go

And I'm gonna take the fall for you
Yeah I'm gonna take the fall for you

Standing in the doorway looking through the glass
Thinking 'bout the future, remembering the past
And I feel it
And I see you moving closer to me

Looking out the window, looking far away
I wish it could be different, I wish that I could stay
'Cause I feel it
And there's nowhere in the world I'd rather be

And I'm gonna take the fall for you
Yeah I'm gonna take the fall for you

Through the times when I've been down and walking through the same old town,
It was you who kept me from the rain
Walking over the same wet ground and being pulled apart without a sound,
It was you who wouldn't put me through the pain

And I'm gonna take the fall for you
Yeah I'm gonna take the fall for you
I said I'm gonna take the fall for you
Yeah I'm gonna take the fall for you
Track Name: Time is Right
All the colors are gone
The cold front follows you down
Left her waiting in the freezing rain
After all that she tried

Wait till the time is right
Wait till the time is right

How do you like it now?
Change is making you weak
Often times you used to tell me then
This time I won't turn back

Wait till the time is right
Wait till the time is right

And when you wake from your dream
Will you tell me it's okay?
And if you offer me your hands
Will I take them back this time?

Grasses dying away
Empty rooms down the hall
Thought the cries would open up your eyes
Now you're out on your own

Wait till the time is right
Wait till the time is right

And when you wake from your dream
Will you tell me it's okay?
And if you offer me your hands
Will I take them back this time?

Wait till the time is right
The time is right

And when you wake from your dream
Will you tell me it's okay?
And if you offer me your hands
Will I take them back this time?
Track Name: (We Can Be) Angels
Can I take this by myself?
All these years wrapped up inside this room, I cannot hide
No more reasons, no more lies, and no more time to slip away
And today I will stand again on my own two feet, and I’ll
Find my way to a better place, and I’ll stand
Waiting for the better side of me, of me, of me

We can be, we can be angels
No more turning out the lights and falling through
We can be, we can be angels
Only difference is we’re flying, flying out of here

All the sinners and the saints
All the bleeders and believers call, I’m on my way
I cannot hear, I cannot see, I cannot feel you coming through
Left alone, all these pieces to pick up again, and I’ll
Turn, and I’ll look, and I’ll fall into
Your arms again, again, again

We can be, we can be angels
No more turning out the lights and falling through
We can be, we can be angels
Only difference is we’re flying...

And we’ll see that the better days will come to those who can
Turn and walk away
These confessions left behind,
I’m leaving today.

We can be, we can be angels
No more turning out the lights and falling through
We can be, we can be angels
Only difference is we’re flying, flying out of here
Track Name: One More Day
I'm in from the cold but I'm out of myself
I'm dry but I'm soaked to the bone
A loose thread on the floor's a loose thread in my year
The truth begins to set in

The carnival's gone and the circus is leaving
A troubled man sits alone in the park
And from across the room a cat gives the tiger's eye
Which your tears won't let you see for too long

And I know what it is to feel this way, and it's okay
No matter where you are, you're still alive
Take my umbrella when the winter sky begins to cry
At least you know you'll always have a home

You'll say what you'll say and you'll do what you do
Heaven's overrated anyway
Everybody always has to get through the night
Before they can watch the sun rise

In the middle of the same old country road again
Eyes just beginning to burn
Teardrops run down the same storm drain
Forgotten, lost in the rain

And I know what it is to feel this way, and it's okay
No matter where you are, you're still alive
Take my umbrella when the winter sky begins to cry
At least you know you'll always have a home

For one more day, yeah...
Just hold on for one more day, yeah...
Just one more day, yeah...
For one more day, yeah...

And I know what it is to feel this way, and it's okay
No matter where you are, you're still alive
Take my umbrella when the winter sky begins to cry
At least you know you'll always have a home
Track Name: Alleluia
Sleep. Don’t let my love wake you,
‘Cause I’m hanging on to what these eyes once knew.
Stay. I beg you, don’t leave this place
For there’s light left in these days.
Dream what lovers will dream,
It’s all that remains, I cannot bring you home.

Fall, it’s what we’ve been needing.
I know I may not understand your world.
Breathe and keep your eyes open
For these nights will pass soon enough.
Take this invisible hand,
It’s stretched out before you to take you away from here.

This has passed, and these are my words for you.
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.

Leave this baggage behind you,
‘Cause there’s still too much to carry on your back.
Stand with others around you.
They will hold you up, receive your strength in them.
Fly in the light of their love,
They will not falter and I will not let you down.

Wake. Step into the cool night air.
Let the moon unmask its beauty and shine on you.
Feel this fire surround your soul,
‘Cause this candle burns for you.
Stay where the water is clean.
I will be steadfast, my love won’t change.

This has passed, and these are my words for you.
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.

Alleluia...
Track Name: Look Homeward, Angel
Remember the words we used to whisper?
Promises we knew we could not keep
Empty visions full of space and time
And all these dreams held up come crashing down

Dancing in the moonlit streets of Paris
Holding still for just a little while
Out of breath, we made our way back home
Capturing this moment in a picture thrown away

Look homeward, angel, and you'll find
Look homeward, angel, and you'll find
Look homeward, angel, and you'll find
What you need

Maybe we'll catch a show in Boston
Hang around to watch the lights go down
Lost along the way, we found each other
Holding onto what we had, loosing ever after then

Look homeward, angel, and you'll find
Look homeward, angel, and you'll find
Look homeward, angel, and you'll find
What you need

These tears I cannot hide are drying me out
And one day you will understand just why I wait for you

Look homeward, angel, and you'll find
Look homeward, angel, and you'll find
Look homeward, angel, and you'll find
What you need

Waiting for midnight to come
Maybe I'll stay a little longer
Shifting eyes could run from self-control
Trying to contain ourselves, we went to far but all that's over

Look homeward, angel, and you'll find
Look homeward, angel, and you'll find
Look homeward, angel, and you'll find
What you need
Track Name: When She Cries
Who holds your wings up now, who's waiting for you when you fall?
What keeps you waiting there, what drives you off the deeper end?
Where are you going now, where do you find what you deserve?
When will I see your face, when will I hear your voice again?

'Cause every breath you take is leaving me
Maybe you'll find a way, remember to forgive

I'm sorry about tomorrow 'cause I feel today
I wish I could find some way, the words to say

She's even beautiful when she cries
When she cries...

Who can you turn to now, who's there to help you find your way?
What are you thinking of, what can you hold on to believe?
Where do you find yourself, where do you think this road will end?
When will I feel your scent fill me with all I used to know?

Well maybe this sun has set for one last time
But I can't be without you hearing this from me


I'm sorry about tomorrow 'cause I feel today
I wish I could find some way, the words to say

She's even beautiful when she cries
When she cries...

Well maybe this sun has set for one last time
But I can't be without you, be without you

She's even beautiful when she cries
When she cries...
