Track Name: The Story Of Us
The story of us is a sad cautionary tale
It's a story of love with a painful sting in the tail

We'd never met in our lives
But I'm going to have to survive
The story of us

The story of us is a short but fleeting affair
A story of love that caught me so unprepared

We'd never met in our lives
But somehow I'll have to survive
The story of us
Track Name: A Song For You
Here's a song for you
Words of love against a tune
Here's my song for you

To tell you how much I love you
Here's a song for you
I hope we'll never be apart
Here's my song for you
To show how much I want you

Here's a song for you
So many happy days ahead
Here's my song for you
To let you know that I love you

Here's my song for you
Here's my song for you
This is my song for you
Here's a song for you
Track Name: Before You Know It
Hold on to love
Before you know it, it will be gone
Those days went by
Before I knew it I was on my own

I cannot face another day without your love
Without your love
Nothing on earth could make you stay
And now I'm lost I am so lost

The months go by
Before you know it a year has gone
I still question why
Looking for answers that will not come

I cannot live another day without your love
Without your love
You're here, you've gone, you got away
Now I'm alone I'm so alone

You had time to say
What you wanted to say
What I could not convey
But can you hear me now?

Hold on to love
Before you know it, it will have gone
I'll hold onto love
Before I know it you will be gone

Hold onto love
Before you know it
Track Name: Stranger
Every time I drive you home
It feels like I am on my own
I feel like a stranger in your arms
You tell me everything's okay
And assure me that nothing has changed
Yet I feel like a stranger in your arms

Every time I hold you close
It feels as if I am alone
Is there something that I need to know?
'Cause I've been finding
That I feel like a stranger in your arms

You say that there is nothing wrong
Though I sense that something's going on
As I feel like a stranger in your arms
It's clear to me you've lost your heart
You act as if you're playing a part
I feel like a stranger in your arms

Every time I hold you close
I sense you'd rather be alone
Is there something that I need to know?
'Cause I've been finding
That I feel like a stranger in your arms
Track Name: Mistakes
Once I gave myself a mountain peak to climb
All I ever wanted was love
In you I met someone I thought would be just fine
All I ever wanted was time

But this is the last chance
This my last chance

All I ever did was treat you well and kind
All I ever wanted was time
But something changed your way
You left me high and dry
Hanging on to questions un-replied

But this is the last chance
This my last chance

We all make mistakes
As anyone who's ever loved will tell you
But it's not good enough for you

This is my last chance
This is my last chance

We all make mistakes
As anyone who's ever loved will tell you
But it's not good enough for you
We all make mistakes
As anyone who's ever loved would do
Track Name: Don't Say It's Over
Hey, don't say it's over
Don't say it's over, we've had our time
Hey, don't say it's over
Don't say it's over, we're past our prime

Hey, does it all mean nothing?
We must mean something
We've lost our way
Hey, don't say it's over
Don't say it's over
At least not today

I need you, I want you, I beg you don't go
I need you, I want you, I love you, don't go

Don't say it's over
Track Name: All We Shared
The world can live without us
It's left here as it found us
And all we shared
There's no 'us' from tomorrow
We've returned the love we borrowed
And all we shared

Everything could turn out fine
Just give yourself some time
We tried but I hope that you can be happy now

The world will turn without us
We never finished what we started
With all we shared
The time had come to move on
So sad what we have become
From all we shared

Everything may turn out fine
I'll allow myself some time
We tried but I hope that I can be happy now

Everything should turn out fine
All I have is too much time
We tried, do you think we both can be happy now?
Track Name: For Always Forever
There comes a time to leave behind all that you've known
Maybe you're right about me but I'm sure I've grown
I'm not saying that I want you
I'm not saying I still want you

I tried to read your letter and I'm sure you know
But maybe you're right about me and you had to go
I'm not saying that l love you
I'm not saying that I care

For always forever
You said you'd love me
For always forever

It's been so hard to understand all that has gone
But someday I'll realise that you weren't the one
I'm not saying I still love you
I'm not saying I still care

For always forever
You said you'd love me
For always forever

I have to know if you really cared
I've got to know did you really care?
I need to know that you really cared

For always forever
You said you'd love me
For always forever
Track Name: Thinking About Her
Still thinking about her, a year has come and gone
Still thinking about her, once my heart was overflowing
Still thinking about her, and how we lost our way
Still thinking about her, because my mind's on yesterday

It's all gone, it's all done, it's over

Still thinking about her, the months have come and gone
Still thinking about her, once my love was overflowing
Still thinking about her, and how everything went wrong
Still thinking about her, I know it's been far too long

It's all gone, it's all done, it's over
I'm still thinking about her
Track Name: Long Lost
Where have they gone?
Those days, they just disappeared
You can't hide the way you feel
So sorry it ended this way
You rode off into the sunset
Whilst rain clouds got in my way
You can't help the way that you feel
I'm sad it turned out this way

From the depths to the heavens
From the peaks to the troughs I had a feeling I was settled
Now I'm feeling I'm lost

Where have you gone?
You somehow faded away
I can't help the way I feel
Still sorry we ended this way
Some day I'll emerge from the darkness
And the hurt will no longer remain
I can't hide the way I feel
So sorry it finished this way

From the past to the present
From the start to the stop
I had a feeling I was settled
Now I've a feeling I'm lost

From the depths to the heavens
From the highs to the drop
Had a feeling I was settled
Now I'm feeling I'm lost

It's a feeling I've lost
I've a feeling I'm lost
Track Name: History
I met a girl
Before too long we were so in love
She gave her trust and in return I gave everything
I thought, "It's fate, we're meant to be"
What I was longing for
She was everything I'd ever dreamed
We had chemistry

But one day things changed
I don't know why
'Cause we'd been so in love
Maybe it didn't feel right
Not what you thought you were looking for

All that's left to me are photographs and sweet memories
All that's left of love are songs to sing of our history

I met a girl but now she's gone
Track Name: Limits
For so long I've been yearning for the day
But lately, all I do is hide away

I know my limits
I just want someone to hold
I know my limits
I just need someone to hold

Maybe, I can find somebody new
But always when chances come I back away

I know my limits
I just want someone to hold
I know my limits
I just need someone to hold
Track Name: A New Religion
I had a vision here today
I saw an angel come my way
The flawless beauty of her face
In sunlight

A simple promise is what I crave
A show of love, an act of faith
Will she be the one to save me from this life

Here she comes, I try so hard to find the words
I pray for once and wonder if she'll get involved
I wonder if she'll get involved

Take a message from this man
She brings a joy that life demands
I hope I figure in her plans
And in her life

A new religion comes from me
Love may be blind but I can see
That someone's looking out for me
In my life

Here it comes, the words fall out then hit the ground
She smiles and says "Unfortunately I'm involved"

I can win
Track Name: Hold On
On the road that we've been down
There's a place where I'll be found
Don't say a word or make a sound
Hear me now

But I'll wait until I'm fine
I know there'll be a better time
Faith and hope must always shine
Hear me out


Hold on to your heart
Don't let the fire burn out
Hold on to your heart
And you will find me, you will find me

Hold on to your heart
Don't let the fire burn out
Hold on to your heart
And you will find me, you will find me
Somewhere
Track Name: Hope
The last time I was here in this town
Nothing was going my way
I somehow survived through it all
My outlook is brighter today

I once had my head in the clouds
But I just don't know about us now
I'm happy here ever after

Hope

The feeling you get when you part
Broken hearted and grey
At last I emerged from the dark
I know it is better this way

I once let my head rule my heart
Well I just don't know about it now
So happy here ever after

Hope
