There are many things I'd like to change The way I may have overlooked your cares Tell me the things that I ought to know Gone moments we cannot relive again Times we didn't hold each other dear Tell me the things that I ought to know Now there are many things I'd like to say How could we have known we'd get here Now there are many things I'd like to be Let's try once more cause nothing can't be changed There are many times I can recall A silent face so full with all that's wrong Tell me the things that I ought to know Now the story's changed and we have Lost our weakness, found our senses Here we are again and now we're changed

It's Okay 03:24
I went to leave toothbrush in your cup You went to leave without looking back at me once You give and you give but not for the taking You take it away then leave me in waiting alone With the aftermath of a storm I went to make your bed of the mess we made You went to make your bread on this usual day I give and I give but you won't take any I'll take it away as long you leave me alone Pretending to call you home Oh, I want to let you in Oh, oh, oh, I want to love again Oh, Just try to let me in Oh, oh, oh, I want to love again Stay as long as you'd like as long as you're shortly Gone before I'm stripped of defense As long as you stay I fear you might have my heart Oh, I want to let you in Oh, oh, oh, I want to love again Oh, Just try to let me in Oh, oh, oh, I want to love again Oh, I want to let you in Oh, oh, oh, I want to love again Oh, Just try to let me in Oh, oh, oh, I want to love again

Hold 04:28
HOLD Sunday morning and the bed I'm in is cold Sunday morning you're no longer here to hold Of all the fleeting moments, And all of the things that you said How we'd figure it out, we'll figure this out We try, and we try, but always fall back again Afternoon comes knock-knockin' at my door Thought it was you but I mistakenly was too sure Just a bundle of bad news Full of all in the world that is wrong So I'll read it and weep as I'm trying to keep My wits about the only thing I Hold, this feeling Hold, this feeling Hold, this feeling Hold, this feeling Evening sets in as I set out my evening tea The kettle's screaming 'bout the things you once whispered to me All our plans fondly spoken of And all of the things we would be How we'd settle our ways, but since you walked away Now I'll try, and I'll try just to figure this out and Hold, this feeling Hold, this feeling Hold, this feeling Hold, this feeling

Open Eyes 04:31
Whispers exchanged through our slumberous mouths They always were clear as a bell Shouting as loud as a siren of war Just to desperately reach to your world There was a time when the height of the sun Brought promise that we could hold on Gasping for air at the end of the world All that remains is my word Whispers exchanged through our slumberous mouths They always were clear as a bell Shouting as loud as a siren of war Just to desperately reach to your world There was a time when my subtlest sign Would turn you inside then out Where does it vanish to all you deprive us of Show me the ways of you now You, the one with the open eyes How'd you lose your sight In my clearest light

If You Want 02:42
If you're on the run Let me know So I can chase you If you're gonna stay Let me know So I can hold you I'm tired of the confusion I'd like a clue as to just what you're doing Give me a sign, a smile or a sigh If you want some fun Let me know I'll reel the sun to you If you're out of time Let me know I'll make it up to Ooooooooooooh Aaaaaaaaaaaaah I'm tired of the confusion I'd like a clue as to just what you're doing Give me a sign, a smile or a sigh If you're on the run If you're gonna stay If you want some fun If you're out of time

Best Of Me 02:42
One two three four five times it has happened again Moving quickly I could not ask for anything else Six seven eight nine ten don't stop now please tell me when We could get together and learn each other so well You always get the best of me I know my way to the best of you One two three four five times it has happened again You knew just what to do you always leave me to beg Six seven eight nine ten don't see us rich in the end Hand in hand moving along from where we began You always get the best of me I know my way to the best of you You always get the best of me I know my way to the best of you You always get the best of me I know my way to the best of you
