Mapmaker 03:33
Step by step I walk away From paved out roads that led the way Breathing the sights Setting aside the wrong and right Morning, noon and night Free to roam the cobblestone Passing the time Minutes and hours combine Rhyme and reason redefined As I roam the cobble stone Step by step I walk away From paved out roads that led the way Stone by stone I build a road Mapmaker on my own I know regulation I know obligation But now this temptation takes my hand As I roam the cobble stone Step by step I walk away From paved out roads that led the way Stone by stone I build a road Mapmaker on my own I’m getting hungry eyes They crave uncommon grounds Hungry eyes lead the hands The hands lay the stones Now I am building a road Mapmaker on my own

Reality 04:14
You are strong You are brave You are loved You live life day by day You are crazy and you’re free You help us to see the reality Tears fall Full of sympathy but lack of understanding Oh they fall From the eyes of those who never knew you truly Oh tears fall From the helpless souls who always will tell you You are strong You are brave You are loved You live life day by day You are crazy and you’re free You help us to see the reality Now there’s Only you who took the biggest chance of all Only you Who knew exactly what you wanted and you needed Only you Who can lead the way and we will follow you You are strong We have faith You are loved We’ll be with you everyday You are crazy and you’re free I hope that you know what you mean to me

Beside You 03:36
She shrugs it off no big deal it’s happened before We ask are you sure But she says she’s not bothered anymore We see your face We see you laughing to try to hold the tears in We see your face But we see right through Sometimes we all have our secrets That we want to keep inside But did you really think we’d miss this You can still hide just know that we’re beside you What should we do what can we do What do we say There’s fire in your eyes Oh don’t just lead us away Let us know We’re standing here waiting to go but holding back Just let us know To stay or to go Sometimes we all have our secrets That we want to keep inside But did you really think we’d miss this You can still hide just know that we’re beside you We’ll help you feel We’ll help you stay Stay whole for one more day You know you don’t have to crawl Cause if you start to fall you’ll hear us say Sometimes we all have our secrets That we want to keep inside But did you really think we’d miss this You can still hide just know that we’re beside you

When I was young I would dream About you Maybe my hopes were extreme But still my hunger grew And all I wanted was the one who’d kiss me goodnight Or if it happened to work maybe love at first sight When I was young I was scared To find you Ironic but I didn’t care I still had learning to do And now as the happiness knocks at my door I’m finally ready to see what’s in store In my eyes look to find How they change when they meet Your stare How they smile How they soften When they meet your eyes Well I am still young and I dream About you But now I’m not scared I am free Free from the lack of you and me It seemed like I waited and waited for so long But now I am sure I am where I belong In my eyes look to find How they change when they meet Your stare How they smile How they soften When they meet your eyes And now as the happiness knocks at my door I’m finally ready to see what’s in store In my eyes look to find How they change when they meet Your stare How they smile How they soften When they meet your eyes

Mind racing Wheels churning Clock ticking Minutes go by Words go down So easy Prince charming Seems good to me But words are only strings of letters And even though I might know how to put them together It really doesn’t mean that much Cause I lack the concept of follow through Moons up The light is on Illogical plans oh Don’t seem so wrong In my corner in my chair Oh in my head in my bed The thoughts are fair But words are only strings of letters And even though I might know how to put them together It really doesn’t mean that much Cause I lack the concept of follow through Sleep doesn’t come natureally but that’s just me Instead the thoughts they come racing madly Oh silence has never been this loud before I could do so much more But then the sun rises But words are only strings of letters And even though I might know how to put them together It really doesn’t mean that much Cause I lack the concept of follow through Words go down So easy Strings of letters Seems good to me

Butterfly 05:14
That empty seat That old lonely bed That deafening silence Pounding in my head That resting pencil that’s yearning for life Those teary eyes That painful sigh This disbelief is real But we all know that she still feels Cause she is a butterfly set free Let her wings spread wide How it was meant to be Let her live in a world Among her fantasies Let her keep alive those hungry eyes and Glide on through the sky A poets words never rang so true Turning the light on brings faith restored to new Gone but not lost is beauty defined Not left behind, just floating on with time Chorus This disbelief is real But we all know that she still feels Cause she is a butterfly set free Let her wings spread wide How it was meant to be Let her live in a world Among her fantasies Let her keep alive those hungry eyes and Glide on through the sky

The distance grows between What I feel and what I say The distance grows between my heart And my brain The distance grows between my daydreams And reality My heart is shouting go, go, go Then I’m fighting no, no, no, no, no My gut is saying show Show it all but Then I fall Back to the shadows The distance grows between What you feel and what you say The distance grows between your heart And your brain You can see quite a similarity Between you and me My heart is shouting go, go, go Then I’m fighting no, no, no, no, no My gut is saying show Show it all but Then I fall Back to the shadows We’re in shallow water and managing just fine There’s no sense of danger here The thought of going deeper Is brewing in my mind but then stops With the thought of drowning It just brings too much fear My heart is shouting go, go, go Then I’m fighting no, no, no, no, no My gut is saying show Show it all but Then I fall Back to the shadows

It’s funny how some things are always the same For so long I never knew anything ever would change But I was wrong Cause now I see you so different from before And with this new you I love you even more And I just wanna let you know that you mean the world to me And I don’t wanna see you go I wish that time could slow So you could stay here with me I feel like I’ve thrown all these years down the drain What a waste Just now I’ve found out it was all insane Slow down the pace Cause now I know you so better than before And now I want to know you even more And I just wanna let you know that you mean the world to me And I don’t wanna see you go I wish that time could slow So you could stay here with me I wish I knew this all then But time has slipped through My fingers Oh once again And I just wanna let you know that you mean the world to me And I don’t wanna see you go I wish that time could slow So you could stay here with me

Grey 04:49
Leaves change Green fades to red and yellow Then they fall As if they never changed color at all Snow floats down White crystal flakes are all around Then the diamonds melt away Moving on it’s a new day Who knew life would fly by Who knew time knows how to lie It’s got a mind of its own It won’t stop if you can’t hold on All the colors of my life turn to gray Picture frame Lookin through the shiny glass again My favorite phrase Is I remember the old days Who knew life would fly by Who knew time knows how to lie It’s got a mind of its own It won’t stop if you can’t hold on All the colors of my life turn to gray Minutes they turn into years Taken for granted time now turns to fear The future turns ancient with constant speed so Now my wish is eternity Who knew life would fly by Who knew time knows how to lie It’s got a mind of its own It won’t stop if you can’t hold on All the colors of my life turn to gray

Tides 04:04
Well I always heard those words they said Telling me all that was true But I managed to have them fly right through my ears Use your face to deny what I knew Well I went through all the rotations With smile filled cheery-eyed turns And now I see truth in all its simplicity But still I’m controlled by my lies Cause I change Like the tides of an ocean In and out in my fickle ways Sometimes I make salt fill my wounds Other times I get a sweet taste of what’s new But these days I just float on with the waves The stars and the moon Bring black and white reality to me I find it spelled out so clear And in my dreams life without you is revealed But still I am crippled by fear Cause I change Like the tides of an ocean In and out in my fickle ways Sometimes I make salt fill my wounds Other times I get a sweet taste of what’s new But these days I just float on with the waves My hunger for happiness Tempts me to stay Here you can find me Locked away with the image of you Cause who wants to be lonely Who knows if I want to escape Cause I change Like the tides of an ocean In and out in my fickle ways Sometimes I make salt fill my wounds Other times I get a sweet taste of what’s new But these days I just float on with the waves
