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

Fall for You 04:28
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

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?

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

One More Day 03:21
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

Alleluia 06:14
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...

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

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...
