I’d walk a million miles just to have you I’d live a million lives if I could take your place I’d give a million dollars just to own you I’d tell a million lies just to touch your face And lead you Un-gently Into The night Where I would Offer you my body and my soul I would take from you your body and your soul To own you completely But you ran away I had fallen I had fallen Over to Welcomed to Slipped into The night, the night You never came to me to say you’re sorry You never came to me and said that I could stay You never let me take you over You never let me love you in that way I gave a million sorrows just to lose you I paid a million times more than I could bear I shed a million tears when it was over I raged a million times against you standing there I followed Un-gently You took me To the grave And now… I have fallen I have fallen Over to Welcomed to Stepped into The light, the light I have fallen I have fallen Over to Welcomed to Stepped into The light, the light I’d walk a million miles just to have you I walked a million miles…

Superman 03:20
I broke a glass into my hand Walked on coals and walked on water I came out safe But I should have known I’m watching the skies I’m watching alone Watched you go down and didn’t care Saw you drown I wouldn’t save you I didn’t know what I know now Or what I could’ve done What if I were superman? On the edge of my bed But sat on my hands? What if I were superman? What if I didn't jump high? Wouldn't even try? They couldn’t touch me – don’t know why They fell behind, I passed them by If I had known what I know now Or what I could’ve done Question – would I have saved you? What if I were superman? On the edge of my bed But sat on my hands? What if I were superman? What if I didn't jump high Wouldn't even try? What if I were superman? How can I accept my fate? Watching the world turn over The way it does. Seems sometimes I’m going gray Am I fading away? What if I were superman? On the edge of my bed But sat on my hands? What if I were superman? Didn’t jump high Wouldn’t even try What if I were superman? On the edge of my bed Never gonna die Never been alive What if I were...

You broke me into pieces You woke me without a reason And you said it, you said It couldn't be done. Standing in shadows after midnight Sang my song without a spotlight You told me It couldn't be done. Couldn't be done But I will shine You won't shut me down This time And I will shine It will be this time It will be done Blind old man painted a picture Trees and grass couldn't be clearer Painted bars in and said It couldn't be done. Man on the moon who would've believed it Man with big hands couldn't conceive it Everyone said, they said It couldn't be done. Couldn't be done But I will shine You won't shut me down This time And I will shine It will be this time It will be done No matter what you try to say What you throw down in my way No matter what you try to give away No matter what you try to say What you throw down in my way No matter what you try to give away But I will shine You won't shut me down This time And I will shine It will be this time It will be done It will be done What's never been done

I cannot go home again But I’m sometimes on that road when Like a dream Come to me It is Prides Crossing Then if takes the breath from me I blink and I can barely see Like a dream Passing me It is Prides Crossing Where the leaves have gone brown Where the trees are tall And the road turns down But I drive on For I’ve come to see The fire Through the fire Lost my home… Started out in ninety two Picked a place I hardly knew Captured you Settled you Started driving faster Then I played my biggest game My hands were warm and still the same I was sure I risked more It was Prides Crossing I thought I’d won The bet When I realized There was nothing left I had fallen Fallen easily I’m on fire I was on fire I was wrong And I knew I was But I could not say it to you Quick the season went Spring to fall Fall to fire Drove that road again It was the fire It was fire Missed the turn again It was dark I couldn’t see Leaving Prides Crossing I can’t ever Go home…

Defenseless 03:44
Whatever you want me to see I'm blind Wherever you want me to go I can't find Whoever you want me to be I will sit still and I’ll wait I’ll wait…for you I am defenseless Against you I have been captured Spellbound by you For a long, long time Gave you my secret The one thing Gave you what no one could have Before you For a long, long time Whatever you want me to see I'm blind Whoever you want me to be I’ll try Spell I am under Penumbra Spell I am under Will never Forever Pass away I am defenseless Against you I have been captured Spellbound by you For a long, long time Gave you my secret The one thing Gave you what no one could have Before you For a long, long time

You Can Fly 04:02
Wherever I turn I meet an unexpected tragedy Wherever I go I can’t see past the darkness facing me I can’t go on I’ve measured time I’ve tried too long I’m putting down I can’t fly … tried and tried I’ve been losing lately … I’m so tired I’m down For now The air thins out – I lose my breath when I’m flying I don’t think that I can make it safely home from here You can lie down You will revive Darkness will pass You will survive You can fly … high so high Don’t worry about falling … just try Hang on You’re not down Put down here And rest with me You can fly … high so high Don’t worry about falling … just try Hang on You’re not down

Waited on the beach tonight Better off feeling numb tonight Better off dying down Better off numb Didn’t know how you could walk around When underneath the solid ground That you walk on is gone You give to me like sand along the sea When everything you build for me Like castles that you made Comes tumbling down Tumbling down Written off three years of my bad luck Wondered why I could not get up Why do you hold me down? Better off numb With you around Didn’t know how you could walk around When underneath the solid ground That you walk on is gone You give to me like sand along the sea When everything you build for me Like castles that you made Comes tumbling down Tumbling down I’ve waited for you to say you’re wrong I waited too long Swimming with the tide tonight Better off feeling numb tonight Better off going down Better off numb… With you around

Desolation 04:07
Giant footsteps On darkened stairs go down Silt spilled in river beds Rising up Slowly gaining ground You disappointment Like wine gone bad No last chance, no retreat Can't go back There's someone to meet You're giving it away Total disarray Utter desolation Await Sudden capture of your soul Cerebus will welcome you Silent footsteps Falling down You're giving it away Total disarray Utter desolation Await Darkness will join you Grains of sand anoint you The Guardian will guide you To your home Take you home You're giving it away Total disarray Utter desolation Await You're giving it away Total disarray Utter desolation Await

Bed Of Stone 03:29
When I walk the halls and you’re not there Amid the darkened rooms and winding stairs I hold beasts beneath a thin veneer Nothing is true Cold cold sheets of faded satin I’ll lay my head on a pool of sadness Cast me out when I come for you Don’t comfort me From the beginning you always knew The cold cold bed where I lie How could I ever have asked of you To join me On this bed of stone… bed of stone I picked my room key off the floor Turned the lock and latched the door Aging walls no longer strong Ancient designs From the beginning you always knew The cold cold bed where I lie How could I ever have asked of you To join me On this bed of stone… bed of stone I’ve retreated to the upper rooms It should be bright but the drapes obscure Sloping floors give way Caught in a lie From the beginning I always knew A house built like this can not stand How could I ever have doubted you Would find out Built a lie… built a lie From the beginning you always knew The cold cold bed where I lie How could I ever have asked of you To join me On this bed of stone… bed of stone

Where starlight starts And echoes end Silence, will stay to comfort you When you go into the night I am still Here by your side By your side It's all right It's all right You can close your eyes It's all right It's all right You can close your eyes Don't ever fear Remember me I will join you Someday It's all done It's all done You can go You know the way So close your eyes It's all right It's all right You can close your eyes It's all right It's all right You can close your eyes Silence the stars Blink of an eye And silence the sun Where starlight starts And echoes end Silence, will stay to comfort you When you go into the night I am still Here by your side It's all right It's all right You can close your eyes Silence the stars Blink of an eye And silence the sun It's all right It's all right You can close your eyes It's all right It's all right You can close your eyes Silence the stars Blink of an eye And silence the sun Silence the sun

Requiem 04:27
The sun is gray and weary It cannot rise again The river's course is slowed The sea grows warm Men fear the night All the streets are deserted Women fear birth And grow old without children Do not go to town Not tonight You must sleep The glory is dull and mute Children watch dreamlessly Their tomorrows are yesterday Singing songs of their fathers Do not go to town tonight Not tonight You must sleep Requiem aeternum Dona eis domine There is no race beyond this light You’ve run well, it is run out. Sing requiem, sing requiem. Sleep and wait for light No promises to keep Do not go to town tonight Not tonight You will sleep Requiem aeternum Dona eis domine It is done It is done

Evergreen 04:34
Eternity In marble walls Under glass Through narrow halls Fell to earth And now I rest Evergreen, evergreen Forever walked To the sea Launched a boat Eternity Fell to earth And now I rest Evergreen, evergreen One thousand years My hands are new My lips are soft My eyes are blue Fell to earth With no one left Evergreen, evergreen. And now I rest…
