Track Name: For The Little While
I wish I was something you would never forget
but I just gotta tell you I'm like everybody else
you painted me white like a saint on the rise
but I stayed in my place
Every road led to nowhere, every field's left with no green
every wind told me something I would never want to hear
and there is darkness up above me
through these trees I feel this rain a-coming
I'm alone, I won't belong in any place you could call home

There's no halo behind my face and there's no air beneath my feet
I can feel your pain and if you cut me I can bleed
you listen to my words as you could not understand
but they didn't make sense
Every road led to nowhere, every eye could see the scene
every man and every woman, every plant and every tree
they could all see right inside me
through my eyes I see this rain a-falling
now you know, you can be sure
there ain't no place I can call home

But for the little while I'll be here I'd love to feel you near
for the little while I'll be here I've got to lend an ear
cos if you can believe you'll see the snow that starts to burn
for the little while you'd led me home
Track Name: The Morning After
Well there is something about how you're walking
how you're jumping the street like a dancer
how you're breaking the silence with a laughter
how you feel like you're already old

And there is something about how you're smoking
how you're always reaching for the sun
to warm up your cheeks and your smile
to hold up this light in your arms

And I wish I could say to you
all these things that I have in my mind
while the illusion of do it one day
makes me feel like this time is worthwhile

And there is something 'bout walking around you
and talking with my voice down so low
and I know that you're not a traitor
maybe I'm just turning into one

'Cause I keep on writing about you
about all that's happened around
and about the morning after
I'm lost but tonight I am found

'Cause I keep on writing about you
about all that's happened around
and you are my morning after
I'm lost but tonight I am found
I was lost but tonight I am found
I'm lost but tonight I am found
Track Name: Empty House
In this empty house we'll find some rescue
from all the dangers that youth hides
In this forgotten place we ended up
we'll light our eyes watching these kids running wild

and sometimes it's hard to just stay awake
when you just walk all the day away
sometimes it's easy to see you crying
cos I can't even melt my heart tonight

well, the strongest winds might never even find you
as you're hiding your secrets in the sand
and as I'm sailing through the seas of desire
you're moving me with nothing but your hands

we can try to dry out all the water
and make a living out of nothing but plans
and if you're feeling all this weight on your shoulders
it's not late to start it over again

this empty house, these broken years
those crying laughters, those melting tears
my empty eyes, your hollow dreams
that I destroyed with all of my fears

Sometimes it's hard to just run away
when it's your heart begging for words and preys
and sometimes it's easy to leave them hiding
cos I can't even melt my heart tonight

Birds are singing, 4 a.m. in the morning
I can hear them through the ear that you lend
trying to sleep though we're not even tired
I believe that this might be the end

but you'll have memories to fill your days
as you're growing old by yourself
and you know that you can always find me
in the desert with all your secrets

my empty heart, my thoughtful lies
your hopeful darkness, these shining lights
if you'll find your shelter right after the storm
will you make room for us till the day we'll be gone?
will you make room for us till the day we'll be gone?
Track Name: When Winter Ends
I'm not the one breaking the silence
I'm not the one pulling the strings
I will be different in the shadow
I'll keep your smile inside of me

and you'll cut the ropes
"the curses that she sends"
but we'll meet again
when winter ends

maybe we're counting down the seconds
dividing our hopes and dreams
and you wish that it would matter
but you know it won't mean a thing

and we'll climb the trees
just like when we were friends
but we'll fall out again
when winter ends
when winter ends
