Waiting here for you to call I've got nothing but time Lay on the floor, feet to the wall Keeping calm, I walk a thin line You won't see me struggle Just for a chance to get a glimpse of us What could be? The question still remains unseen What could we become if all this became something I want so bad, yet I can't have Are we friends, lovers or nothing? I can't sleep when you're not here You give me air to breathe I grab a pillow and pull it near Just give me something to believe You won't see me struggle Just for a chance to get a glimpse of us What could be? The question still remains unseen What could we become if all this became something I want so bad, yet I can't have Are we friends, lovers or nothing?

These miles, as all the lights go flying by We're past the places we should have gone And yet time ticks by We wonder when we get the chance to Realize its time to say good bye and reload Another strange trip on the road And then another night life flashed before our eyes Were thinking its all new but somehow it still feel like home And yet we still go It's just another hard chance to get things right And in the end we will know what all this was for Another strange trip on the road One by one the towns all fade away In the end we knew we had our time to play And still time ticks by All the lights are flashing green to red How the hell did I even get outta bed Another strange trip on the road And then another night life flashed before our eyes Were thinking its all new but somehow it still feel like home And yet we still go It's just another hard chance to get things right And in the end we will know what all this was for Another strange trip on the road

Blue Skies 04:45
I'm cozy and warm, dreaming of blue skies You're here in my arms, dreaming of blue skies We're dancing in the clouds, dreaming of blue skies We've never been this high before As we start this again You're cozy and warm wishing for blue skies You're here but you're gone wishing for blue skies You're off into the clouds, wishing for blue skies You've never been this high before As you end this again We can't go back to where we started This life off track, all brokenhearted I'll miss those days, I know But, I won't let it show So, we're starting again

Untie the ship, I'm leaving On my way, unknowingly A million places to see None of which expect to see me My eyes become weak as I sail the night Nowhere to sleep but on board A toss between hunger and firelight I close my eyes as I lay on the floor The nights are long, I'm lonely The piece of mind is killing me No safe place to call my own The wandering man can have no home My eyes become weak as I sail the night Nowhere to sleep but on board A toss between hunger and firelight I close my eyes as I lay on the floor Nobody seeks me Nobody needs me Morning will come Followed by setting sun Yet, I still remain the forgotten one And I'm coming home, I'm coming

Breakaway 05:29
Listening, wondering What does this life mean to me? I have been suffering so long Waiting here, patiently There is so much to give in I will not do this anymore Cause I cant see light thru the glass anymore There is no life left in these walls If I breakaway cause I cannot stay Something outside is calling Thats when I refuse to fall away Withering, fading The light grown more dim everyday I have been suffering so long Growing tired, cannot sleep But, what is the point in trying? Im done cause theres no more hiding Cause I cant see light thru the glass anymore There is no life left in these walls If I breakaway cause I cannot stay Something outside is calling Thats when I refuse to fall away I'm on the inside looking out You're on the outside looking in Taking this from the inside out Cause I cant see light thru the glass anymore There is no life left in these walls If I breakaway cause I cannot stay Something outside is calling Thats when I refuse to fall away

You suffer the cost. When all this is lost You see you had plan anyway You knew what it took to bleed the pain away ...and you're still fighting ...and you're still screaming You wont see me hiding, as you turn to stone Pleading that all hope is gone You wont stop crying, cause you're on your own You set yourself up to die alone If I give you my help Will it feel like it felt You see you had plan anyway I don't wanna be the knife that gets you right ...and you're still fighting ...and you're still screaming So what if it's goodbye? Why did you not try, to make things right.....
