Make It Home 03:18
Halfway between the City and the place where I was born Driving up into the Arctic Watershed chasing the horizon Dreaming of things we used to have We used to care about Make It Home Just Make It home We're heading back up North to visit people who have seen me at my worst, somehow still want to see me the weather's gaining on us but we will get there first Dreaming of things we used to laugh We used to laugh about Make It Home Just Make It Home And it's always Thanksgiving It's always Hallowe'en It's always someone's birthday It's always New Year's Eve It's where I find myself when I want to find myself Make It Home Just Make It Home

You tell me it's too late You seem to forget Right now is as early As it's ever going to get So move as quickly as you can You will Never Be This Young again Don't take it so hard I mean no disrespect You have to start all over when it's all over Move as quickly as you can You will Never Be This Young again. Don't take it so hard I mean no disrespect You have to start all over 'Cause it's all over Don't say that it's too late You seem to forget that right now is as early as it's likely going to get Move as quickly as you can You will Never Be This Young again You will never be so young You will never be so young... Move as quickly as you can You will Never Be This Young again.

Out of Range 02:57
I don't remember where I started I don't remember where I meant to go The glowing screen is like a dream you can't wake up from I can't seem to get out of my own head. I don't remember what the world is like outside I can't remember anything All I see are blinking lights I only go out at night and never too far Out Of Range and I don't know if I am still in control and i don't know if i am still in control I don't remember what the world is like outside I can't remember anything And all i see are blinking lights I only go out at night and never too far Out of Range

Tourist 03:54
You don't remember me, do you? Don't lie to me. I can see right through you. I am just a Tourist in your life. I am only a Tourist in your life after all. Of course you wouldn't recognize me, would you? I never gave you anything but company. Why am i even talking to you? I am just a Tourist in your life. I am only a Tourist in your life after all. It's not too late to walk away. It's not too late to run. And I'm embarrassed. And I'm offended. You think I'm no one. Maybe you're right. I am just a Tourist in you life. You don't remember me, do you?

Digital watches counting down You think no one else is around You Can't See Me Little red light It's after midnight You Can't See Me We all have secrets We all have secrets You Can't See Me It is just you and the machines everyone else is asleep You Can't See Me All by yourself You are someone else You Can't See Me We all have secrets we all have secrets You Can't See Me.

All the Pretty Stars... I don't know if they're real they are satellites and fireflies moving across the sky All the pretty Stars... I don't care if you're real here we are under All the Pretty Stars... All the Pretty Stars...

You're Learning How to Let Go You know it's over. Learning How to Let Go She's gone forever. So let it go before it kills you and slowly make your way back to the world. You're Learning How to Let Go... To just keep staring at it won't bring it back to life. Just be glad you had it. And let it go before it kills you And slowly make your way back to the world. You're Learning How to Let Go and that's all for now.

Nobody Home 02:40
There's nothing to be afraid of. There's nothing in the dark that isn't there with the light on. There's nothing to get over. There's nothing left to say except "Good-bye" So what if nobody's home? All that leaves us is alone. There's nothing to figure out now. What has happened cannot be undone. There's nothing to be afraid of. There's nothing in the dark that isn't there with the light on. So what if nobody's home? All that leaves us is alone.

I'm going into business for myself. You can have whatever you want with somebody else. I'm going into business for myself. Things will be different now that I'm free. The road has opened up in front of me. Things'll be different now that I'm free. Cause I'm rollin' Yes i'm rollin' Drive it Like It's Stolen. All that matters is I'm moving now. It doesn't matter where or why or how. All that matters is i'm moving now. I'm running like a dog that broke his chain. I'm not going to look back again. Running like a dog that broke his chain. And I'm rollin' Yes i'm rollin' drive it Like It's Stolen. I don't care what i said yesterday. I just don't care. I've got places to go come on, get out of my way. Cause i'm rollin' Yes i'm rollin'. Drive all night like it was stolen.

Real World 03:49
Spinning in and out of a dream, dizzy... Not so sure where I am and i forget how to stand and whatever I planned to do. Am I drunk? Am I crazy? Am I tired or in Love? Am I drunk? Am I crazy? Am I tired or in Love with you? Better shake my foggy head, Clear out the cobwebs No matter what I may have said before. I have to live my own life on my own terms. It's no concern of yours. I'm ready for the Real World now. Yeah! I'm ready. Ready for the Real World Now. I'm going to take over there world or, at least get out of bed Clearing the cobwebs... And live my own life on my own terms. It's no concern of yours. I'm ready for the Real World now. Yeah! I'm ready! Ready for the Real World Now. Yeah! I'm ready. Ready for the Real World now!

Now that the party is over no one is around. We're sweeping up confetti and pulling streamers down. Wanted to go out with a bang but you leave without a sound now that The Magic is Over. It's been seven years of tug-of-war it's time we both let go. You won't be trying to change me I won't hold you back anymore. It's time to put the light out, call it a night and close the door now that The Magic is Over. No more waiting and hoping. It's all out in the open. We need to take some time. Now that the Magic is Over we can try it out as friends. I won't answer to anyone I can be myself again. What we had was beautiful but this is where it ends now that the Magic is Over. What we had was beautiful but this is where it ends. Now that the Magic is Over. Now that the Magic is Over.

I look in the mirror. I look into the eyes a broken man that I don't recognize standing Where I Used to Stand Oh standing Where I Used to Stand. I look out the window I see them holding hands. Who is that guy standing Where I Used to Stand Oh, standing Where I used to Stand. I can do better. I can try harder if I have to if I want to... Some day here's what I have planned: I'll be standing Where I Used to Stand oh, standing Where I Used to Stand

I saw you las night through the eye of a storm. I looked through the window, you were not alone. I tried to imagine it's not what it looks like, opened the door and discovered I was right all along. I saw you last night through the eye of a storm. I saw you last night through the eye of a storm. The man I was, you thought you once knew, is gone. This could be prevented. I wish I was warned. But whose fault is that, anyway? It didn't have to end this way. I saw you last night through the eye of a storm. I saw you last night through the eye of a storm. Your heartbeat was pounding, your clothes were all torn. And I am a hurricane, so unpredictable. The only thing you can now count on is trouble. I saw you last night through the eye of a storm.

I'm really glad you made it out. I was starting to have my doubts. It's good to see you once again. It's always nice to see an old friend. And I know it's been a while but I'm Glad to See You. A couple years, a thousand miles... Well, I'm Glad to See You. It's good to see you in real life in stead of memories or moving lights. I'm glad to see you still exist. You don't know how much you were missed. There's water underneath the bridge but I'm Glad to See You. A couple brewskies in the fridge 'cause I'm Glad to See You. "For Old time's sake?!" For the Love of god! These are the Good Ol' Days right here. "For Old time's sake?!" For the Love of god! These are the Good Ol' Days right here.
