Track Name: Make It Home
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
Track Name: Never Be This Young
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.
Track Name: Out of Range
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
Track Name: Tourist
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?
Track Name: You Can't See Me
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.
Track Name: All the Pretty Stars
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...
Track Name: Learning How to Let Go
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.
Track Name: Nobody Home
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.
Track Name: Like It's Stolen
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.
Track Name: Real World
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!
Track Name: the Magic is Over
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.
Track Name: Where I Used to Stand
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
Track Name: Eye of the Storm
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.
Track Name: Glad to See You
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.
