Track Name: Lift Me Up
I thought I had it all, turning back the hands of time.
Daydream and staring out into the sky.
Full of mystery, uncertainties we define our lives.
Into a void I fall a thousand passions die.
I do not understand, your plan for me.

Chorus
Lift me up, I know what I believe inside. (I believe.)
When dreams become reality, why do I hide?
Lift me up, I believe I can deny you.
I'm reaching out cold and broken but I'm alive.

Well it's hopeless my heart has turn away.
All the pieces torn apart, who will I turn anyway?
On the surface I'm doing fine, God show me a sign.
All that you forgive can you forgive me too.
Grounded by broken wings, I can't fly.

Chorus
Lift me up, I know what I believe inside. (I believe.)
When dreams become reality, why do I hide?
Lift me up, I believe I can deny you.
I'm reaching out cold and broken but I'm alive.

I'm alive.

The hope and sight is all but gone,
Shine despite all the things you done.
In the end you will justify, the life you're living.
Swallow your pride, be somebody tonight.
Nothing lasts forever, carry on!

Chorus
Lift me up, I know what I believe inside. (I believe.)
When dreams become reality, why do I hide?
Lift me up, I believe I can deny you.
I'm reaching out cold and broken but I'm alive.
Track Name: Heart Like Stone
It was long ago,
Still feels like yesterday.
You tore my world apart.
With your callous cheating ways.

Chorus
I can feel your heart beat.
Cold blue eyes that cut through steel.
A broken heart that needs to roam.
Eyes like steel,
Heart like stone.

I thought love was here with me,
It seems it wasn't meant to be, Oh no.
I pick my heart up off the floor,
Since you won't need it anymore.

Chorus
I can feel heart beat.
Cold blue eyes that cut through steel.
A broken heart that needs to roam.
Eyes like steel,
Heart like stone.

I can't feel your heart beat. Yeah!
Cold blues eyes that cut through steel.
A broken heart that needs to roam.
Eyes like steel,
Heart like stone.

Kiss me warm and hold me tight,
Tell me everything is alright.
I can't take your lies no more.
Eyes like steel,
Heart like stone.
Track Name: Promise
Don't promise me tomorrow,
When you can't find yesterday.
Don't tell me you'll be there,
When you can't find your way.

Every memory that we had, (Just you and I alone)
Brings a smile and makes me glad. (A joy you'll never know)
Every time I think about us there, (You and I alone)
It's a memory will never share again.

Don't promise me tomorrow,
When you can't find yesterday.
Don't tell me you'll be there,
When you can't find your way.
Your way....

I can try all that I want to. (And try and try again)
But there's no way to remind you. (Of the joy you'll never know)
Of all those times we spent together. (Just you and I alone)
I can't get you to remember us there.

I can try all that I want to. (And try and try again)
But there's no way to remind you. (Of the joy you'll never know)
Of all those times we spent together. (Just you and I alone)
I can't get you to remember us there.

Don't promise me tomorrow,
When you can't find yesterday. Yeah...
Don't tell me you'll be there,
When you can't find your way. Find your way....

Promises, promises you made that promise,
You made that promise to me.
Promises, promises you made that promise,
You made that promise to me.
Promises, promises you made that promise,
You made that promise to me.
Promises, promises you made that promise,
You made that promise to me.

Said you'll be there,
Said you'll be there,
Said you'll be there,
Said you'll be there,
Yeah,be there.
Track Name: Believe
Shadows descending through the clouds.
Heaven and earth touching hopelessly.
Faded black birds soaring high.
I'm the wind from the sea,
Believe, yeah.

Giving to the world wondrously.
Energy touching light of the heart.
I'm the wind from the sea,
Drowning silently I'm a man,

Into the night I'm fallen,
My old skin peeling and bleeding.
Cold and alone silence surrounds me yeah.
Crushed by the guilt I'm pleading.
Confessing all the sins within me yeah,
The silent skies fall around me again.

Rescue me I'll breathe again,
Uncertain of just who I am.
Rescue me I'll breathe again,
Judgement echoes in my head.

My soul it cries no more,
How could you fail?
How could you fail, to believe in me?
Me.
How could fail,
Fail.
To believe in me again.

Rescue me I'll breathe again,
Uncertain of just who I am,
Just who I am.

Standing against the wind,
I feel your breath,You breathe within you breath within.

My soul it cries no more,
Astounded I believe.
Track Name: Still in Love
I can't seem to get over you,
All day and night and thinking about you,
You took my love and walk at the door,
Now I'm left here still wanting more.

Still in love,
Still in love with you.

I see your face wherever I look,
My heart you played it just like a book,
And now you're out with somebody else,
And I'm still standing here by myself.

Love, still in love with you
What am I going to do?
Still in love with you, yeah yeah yeah!

I'm still in love,
Still in love with you,
What am I going to do?

I'm still in love,
Still in love with you,
What am I going to do?

I'm still in love,
Still in love with you,
What am I going to do?
