Track Name: Embers And Envelopes
We write to apologize.
We ask to look past life as it goes by.
I know you have sacrificed time,
life, love, time to fly.
Please consider all things trite,
forgiveness will be the thing that gets us by.
I know to have something like this
broken is hard to fix.

(refrain)
Embers, we're burning bridges down.
Oh! Envelopes stuffed with feelings found.
To write this down as means to reconcile.

We write to patch things up,
maybe not to agree but to proclaim love.
Let's look ahead and then we'll see the one
whose glory never ends.
And based on that we'll see,
there'll be room for change, but gradually.
I know to have something like this
broken is hard to fix.

(refrain)
Embers, we're burning bridges down.
Oh! Envelopes stuffed with feelings found.
To write this down as means to reconcile. (x4)

(bridge)
If all is said and done and over,
if we don't have to, we're not gonna.
Make the change, it's worth the try.
What's broken can be fixed tonight.
(refrain plays the same time as the bridge)

Embers, we're burning bridges down.
Oh! Envelopes stuffed with feelings found.
To write this down as means to reconcile. (x2)
Track Name: This Time Is The Last Time
Save yourself.
Because the only thing that matters
is that you get away from the pain
and the thought of losing your mind.
Don't blame yourself.
It was everyone around you who made you act this way.
There's the stage and your chance to watch it go down.

Don't fake yourself into ever, ever thinking about yesterday.
That was then, this is now. Don't call it undone.
Don't take what you've been dealt.
You can exit out the back and make your getaway
before anyone can see the damage you have done.

This time is the last time so be here, here now.
This time is the last time. Somehow make it through.

State your case. You've got everyone's attention.
What can you say? Thanks or forget what you've been given.
Take your place. Do you think that you deserve the best of everything?
We don't get why you're here. Can you figure it out?

This time is the last time so be here, here now.
This time is the last time

You've got to get away.
Oh, I get lost in the thought of losing you.
You've got to get away. I know it's a dream but it must be true.

Wave now goodbye. It's the lesson that you've been given.
You can always move on to better things.

This time is the last time so be here, but be here now.
This time is the last time somehow.
This time is the last time so be here, but be here now.
This time is the last time. Somehow make it through.
Track Name: All Deliberate Speed
You said you'll meet us in the middle of the afternoon
we said we're frustrated.
and you tried to take us.
"Go on, get ready, cause it's coming soon"
Well no thanks, we'll make it.

So it brings us back to this.
Something's got to give.
So are you listening?
Or are you coming around again?

All deliberate speed- Lately you've been contemplating.
Is this real or is this fading? What brought you here in the first place?
Everyone around us screams "It's got to be and it's got to hit you."
Well, you and me, well we could change the world.

We could drive and we could take our stuff on out of here.
Well we'll leave with the sunrise.
This place and this city it's good for nothing but for feeling down.
Let's say we'll break it.

Losing sleep for days.
Is this just a phase?
Are there other ways?
The one who sings is the one who pays.

All deliberate speed- Lately you've been contemplating.
Is this real or is this fading? What brought you here in the first place?
Well everyone around us screams "It's got to be and it's got to hit you."
Well, you and me, well we could change the world.

Sound off we're going to L.A.
You wanted to be the one who makes it happen so...
Sound off we're going to L.A.
If it's gonna be then we've got to give.
But it's got to be enough for me.
Track Name: Runaway
I take a ride to the other side cause it feels so nice just to drive and drive and drive.
I'd make amends for the other night if you'd be here with me holding me tight. I
s this the chance when we fly away?
Cause I need to know if I'm coming back.
I push and pull just to get what I want.
In the end I should know that you bring it all to me.

Reach out, you can go overboard if you want to.
In and out, don't lose control, don't lose control.
Just don't take it back.

And I get so close, but I runaway, I runaway.
The things I fear the most, keep me here to stay, but anyway...

Can we try for right now, free of doubt.
If you give the chance I could try and figure out.
I'm kind of scared because I don't know how.
But I'm watching the close calls and catching my breath now.
There could be time when I'd fly away.
But you need to know that I'm coming back.
Don't want to push and pull anymore, just to get what I want, when you bring it all to me.

Reach out, you can go overboard if you want to.
In and out, don't lose control, don't lose control.
Just don't take it back.

And I get so close, but I runaway, I runaway.
The things I fear the most, keep me here to stay, but anyway...

You said you always wanted someone to tell you it's ok.
Well, I guess it's my chance to tell everyone everything.

Can we talk about this?
Give me the chance and we'll fly away.
Can we walk around this?
Give me the chance and we'll fly away.

(x2)
And I get so close, but I runaway, I runaway.
The things I fear the most, keep me here to stay, but anyway...

Track Name: Sun
I'm a mess, I guess.
It's what I've asked for, it's what I've needed.
Well, you know me better than,
or at least you did then something happened.
But once again, well, something's happened.
The confidence you held in us is
the rope we almost hung ourselves with.
At times I wonder if we really took the steps
to break right through it.
I know that there were better days,
but to see the light and to feel the rays.
Life was always back and forth
and we were idling or making useless progress.

Waiting for the rain to stop.
Destination: beautiful.
Seems that I'm still waiting for the sun. (Whoa yeah)
Someday will come back to us, if you're willing, let it go.
Why won't you just let this be your sun? (oh oh)
It seems like yesterday we had the world our way.
But some (whoa) say we're headed for destruction.

i'll ask you "What in the world should we do?"
This light is green our break is through.
Are we not trying or we're trying too hard?
Well, you know I never want to miss,
I hold on tight and reminisce.
But it's bittersweet to me.
When time stands still as it's trapped inside
the letterbox you gave back to me.
But I'm the one who keeps on reading.
But I'm the one who wants to let it go.
I'm the first to speak.
You're the last to know.
Another scene that we're creating,
I need to know if we're still making useless progress.

Waiting for the rain to stop.
Destination: beautiful.
Seems that I'm still waiting for the sun. (Whoa ohh)
Someday will come back to us, if you're willing let it go.
Why won't you just let this be your sun? (whoa ohh)
It seems like yesterday we had the world our way.
But some (whoa) say we're headed for destruction.

Track Name: Last Call
Hello, grab your bag and let's go. (lets go)
More out of place than anything you know.
Like an opera at a disco. (disco)
When all you wanted was a rock show (rock show)....tonight.
These lights, are they hanging in a distance? (distance)
Did they glimmer for an instant?
When they're shining do you feel alright?
Know love, you were looking good tonight....tonight

This is the last call. ohh whoa oh
Too long to list it.
Please don't you miss it.
(ahhh, ahhh, ahh ahh)
Don't give up and let them hold you down
And when they tell you oh whoa ohh.
We could burn this town.

Scream, waking from a bad dream. (bad dream)
Don't think anything is what it seems.
Can't you figure out what this means? (this means)
Don't sit back and keep your hands clean (hands clean)...today.
We'll say maybe we can find a new way.
Or create another great, cliche.
Storms are coming, why don't we play? (we play)
Instead of sitting, dancing in the rain...today.

This is the last call. ohh whoa oh
Too long to list it.
Please don't you miss it.
(ahhh, ahhh, ahh ahh)
Don't give up and let them hold you down
And when they tell you oh whoa oh.
We could burn this town.

So long, they tried to tell you that you don't belong.
So, I guess we'll have to prove them wrong. (prove them wrong)
Pretty soon we'll hear them sing a long. (sing along)
Ain't it funny that it's our song?(our song).... So.. long.

This is the last call. oh whoa oh
Too long to list it.
Please don't you miss it.
(ahhh, ahhh, ahh ahh)
Don't give up and let them hold you down
And when they tell you oh whoa ohh.
We could burn this town.
Track Name: Skyline Drive
Sometimes I run, but I'm not afraid.
Why must you bring up all the mistakes I've made?
She makes me smile, but you come around.
The wind in her hair reflects the sunset I see.

You make it seem like it was yesterday.
But we've come a long way out of the rain.
Can't seem to figure out what happens after this.
Why can't I?

Why must you say I made a mess out of things?
I won't believe it.
Tonight feels right like I'm dancing on air.
I'll make it right, I'll make it right.
Pull over to the station and fill up on fuel.
And what will I do?

Sometimes I drive or ride with my eyes closed tight
because if the skyline looks this way
then I don't want to sleep tonight.
Never giving up, always seeking light,
we must always try, try with all our might.
Track Name: Soundtrack For Our Movie
I started to ache when I started to think of you.
Wondering how long it would take
before I step into something new.
There's only so much I can fake.
There's only so much that I can prove.
Well, do it in a minute,
I could go play the fool for you.

Lights, camera, action.
I think I'm going for it this time.
There's something you should listen to.
Could I take you for a car ride?
This is the soundtrack for our movie.
Would you tell me when we get to the best part?
I'll play it for ya
Oh no, I think I've lost this one.
Can we try again?

Well I'm a wreck.
I really can't explain it but I,
I hear the music when I look at you.
Orchestrating the song to accommodate the moment.
Well, I'm so in love with you.

Are you looking for an answer?
Because I could really use a friend tonight.
We can make this last forever.
We don't have to fear the sunlight.

Well I'm a wreck.
I really can't explain it but I,
I hear the music when I look at you.
Orchestrating the song to accommodate the moment.
Well, I'm so in love with

I'll take a chance and steal away this movie moment.

I'm in deep whenever I'm with you.
I'm directing the scene that has you and me forever.
We'll I'm so in love with...
Track Name: Summertime
Summertime, summertime
brought me back to thinking you were mine all those times.
We laid it down and left it all behind, we were blind.
Oh, the summertime.

We could ride, we could ride.
Take my hand and watch the world go by.
Laugh or cry, well we need to try, get off the line, time to fly.
Oh, the summertime.

Go on ahead and let it fade away.
No looking back you know the past will stay.
It's you and me, we could get out of here.
Jump in and go and we could drive for years.
We could feel alive...

Here we are, here we are,
windows down we see a falling star.
Stop the car.
Waiting, nothing but our beating hearts, going far.
Oh, the summertime.

So feel the air, feel the air,
take the map and point to anywhere.
I don't care. Fingers through your hair,
the sky I've seen, blue and green.
Oh, the summertime.

Go on ahead and let it fade away.
No looking back you know the past will stay.
It's you and me, we could get out of here.
Jump in and go and we could drive for years.
We could feel alive...

Driving away, leaving it all behind.
Driving away
Driving away, and leaving it all behind.
Driving away
Driving away (just driving away), leaving it all behind.
Driving away, (just driving away), yeah.
Just Driving away (just driving away), leaving it all behind.
I'm just driving away, yeah (go!).
Track Name: Giving It Away
And by the way you brought me here
it makes me believe the best is still yet to come
and I don't want to leave
Forgive my hesitation, oh, but I'm learning to trust in you.
Help me to dream these dreams cause I don't have a clue.

And if you'd be honest and say what you mean,
you know I would promise, I'd do anything
cause I know that without you, I'm giving it away.
Is this what you wanted?

Cause I'm willing to change.
Now that I am certain,
that there's much more to gain.
You've introduced me to the moment,
oh, but I'm looking to stay, for good. Yeah.

You've asked me to stay forever.
Well, you know that I would,
I would do anything.

If you'd be honest, and say what you mean,
you know I would promise, I'd do anything,
cause I know that without you
I'm giving it away.

The nights are forever,
and maybe I'm wrong,
but it feels like I'm so lost without you.
So I step towards the heat,
it's the way I can see,
and it makes me believe that it's you.
Oh, oh, dadada dada!

And by the way you brought me here
it makes me believe the best is still yet to come
and I don't want to leave,
I want to leave, I won't but anyway...

If you'd be honest,
and say what you mean,
you know I would promise, I'd do anything
and the nights are forever,
I can't get to sleep,
cause I know there's a reason.

I'm in this too (deep)
and I'm sure that without you,
oh, I'm giving it away (x7)
Track Name: Goodbye, Goodnight
The nights are getting colder.
The red light's on, it's over.
To give up now doesn't make much sense.
So this is my goodbye.
Surprised, because I thought I could walk you home tonight,
but you're leaving me here on the defense.

Goodbye, I'm not going to waste this time,
this light that burns will keep on fading.
Goodnight, I'm not getting up off of this ride,
I'm holding tight until I can feel alive.

I've written you this letter,
got it back return to sender.
But I just can't remember you being quiet like that.
Misunderstand, we're holding hands,
we're at the beach, we're throwing sand.
As the lights just go up all around us,
I can't believe it's over.

(x2)
Goodbye, I'm not going to waste this time,
this light that burns will keep on fading.
Goodnight, I'm not getting up off of this ride,
I'm holding tight until I can feel alive.

I'm sitting under falling stars.
Do you miss me where you are?
I'm making plans to be with you.
But have they come unglued?
What am I to do without you?

The nights are getting warm again.
They've let you go, I let you in.
Everything you're saying sounds right tonight.
The waves are crashing on and on.
We're running even if we're wrong.
This force is driving me to test the speed of light.

Goodbye, I'm not going to waste this time,
this light that burns will keep on fading.
Goodnight, I'm not getting up off of this ride,
I'm holding tight until I can feel alive.
