Track Name: Our Town
This is our town when the sun goes down
There's no one but you and me
This is our town when the sun goes down

A kiss for you and me that's all I can see
It's all that I need
A kiss for me and you
Don't tell me that you don't see it's true

This is our town when the sun goes down
Track Name: Gazebo
I saw you
You saw me too
A guitar, and a piano
A feeling we could make grow
We kissed beneath the rainbow

I can hear the song you're singing
They tried to make you disappear

Steeple's high
The bells are ringing
I tucked your hair behind your ear
I like to be with you my dear
Track Name: I Go Where He Goes
I go where he goes
And I know his light
It shines on me
We dream of a clearing
In the forest all our own

We will find our home
Track Name: He Don't Trust
He don't trust in music anymore
He don't trust in love like before
And it hurts
Track Name: Charlotte And The Wolf
Jasey, don't you lie
I'm not ready to say goodbye
But you're gone
You took the train
And now I cry
You know I cry
Jasey, I miss you
All the things I thought we'd do
But now you're gone
You took the train
You went away

You're gone
But I don't know why
No, I don't want to cry
You're gone
Please come back

Jasey, don't you lie
I'm not ready to say goodbye
No, you went.
You got that train to fear
And now I cry
You know I cry
Track Name: Foresaken
You have forsaken me
By and by, I have waited
You lied, you lied, you lie
And I always believed
You were scared
Such a coward,
You cry, I cry, I cry
And I am now a butterfly
On a wheel
And you, you're smiling in the face of how I feel
I remember
I was there
You can't take it away
And you know it was real
Now you're turning me away
I have never hated anyone so much
I have never loved anyone so much

I didn't want to love you, but I do
I didn't want to need you, but I do
Who is the fool
Track Name: Beautiful Sky
I looked outside and I saw the most beautiful sky
Who will buy?
I reached my hand out to touch the most beautiful guy
Oh, I die
Now they're gone
Just like a cloud, or a song
They've taken my life
There is no choice but to go on
Try not to cry
Track Name: Brigadoon
You're slipping away, I know
And you're willing to let me go
Our love's no longer free
Like it was when it was you, and me

I would have gone to Brigadoon
Or caught the last light dripping from a harvest moon
You wanted me and I wanted you
There was no in between
You've made me a fool

You don't want to hear how I feel
It's all jokes, never what is real
Perhaps my dreamers song is
not the one you want your whole life long

I would have gone to Brigadoon
Or caught the last light dripping from a harvest moon
You wanted me and I wanted you
There was no in between
You've made me a fool

But it's real. I pity you now. I feel so sorry. You were afraid of love. I pity you. I pity you. You were my only, my only love.
Track Name: Untimely Demise
Love is a lie
I looked into your eyes
What did I see
Life reflected, me
Why

You couldn't be
Anything to me
Was it a dream
A dark and lonely street
Why
I cry

You killed me
I die
Track Name: The Lost Art Of Faith
If we could hide away
In a memory, would you stay?
Only for a while
We don't need to give up the dream
It's only you and me
Track Name: I Know
I believe in love
But it's not what I dreamed of
And you let me go
It's over
I know
Track Name: The Men Of Midnight
You're the men of midnight
And I'm your lady too
The others run for cover
I'll be your shelter true

Tell me that you'll never break my heart
I couldn't take that

You pissed yourself in the hallway
After sleeping with the slugs
Your closed eyes are like poems
That I've never dreamed of

Tell me that you'll never break my heart
I couldn't take that

You're the men of midnight
And I'm your lady too

I'll never leave you
I'll never leave you
It's my curse
What can I do?
Track Name: In Love With A Memory
To love, and not be loved
Is the only way for me
I'm in love with a memory

To love and not be loved
Is the only life I'll lead
I'm in love with a memory
Track Name: My Love Be Silent
My love be silent
Never stir
Let feelings lie
Where they'll not be disturbed

He'll never show me
The way that he feels in his heart

I never thought I'd meet a man
Who'd love with me in all of the ways he can

So we danced the last waltz
I wanted to lay in his arms
But he held me at bay
And I rue the day

But he held me at bay
And I rue the day
I saw his face
Track Name: All Heroes Are Dead
He'll run from every dragon
He'll run from his own reflection
He'll run from every shadow dark
His favorite color is yellow

Don't tie your heart to his mast
He bends in every storm
He's always looking back

He'll run from every feeling
He'll run as soon as he's in love
He'll run from everything that's true
His favorite color is yellow

Don't tie your heart to his mast
He bends in every storm
He's always looking back

He'll run. And you can't count on him. You never could.
