Track Name: Million Miles
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…
Track Name: Superman
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...
Track Name: Never Been Done
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
Track Name: Prides Crossing
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…
Track Name: Defenseless
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
Track Name: You Can Fly
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
Track Name: Better Off Numb
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
Track Name: Desolation
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
Track Name: Bed Of Stone
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
Track Name: Close Your Eyes
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
Track Name: Requiem
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
Track Name: Evergreen
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…
