Track Name: On Your Own
If you say that you believe in
Absolutely nothing
I won't hold that against you
But there's so much that I am grateful for
I take it for granted
I hope that one day you'll see

The world
The way I see you
I know that it's hard
So I won't push you
You'll get there on your own

Remember when you said that you believed in
Absolutely nothing?
Well look how you laugh and you smile!
But there's still so much that I am grateful for
I still take it for granted
I think now you can see

The world
The way I see you
I know that it's hard
But I didn't push you
You got there on your own
And now you see me
The way that I see you
I didn't push you
You got there on your own
Track Name: Laura
Train rattles the window
As I'm sitting here in the front seat
The Sun beats so bright
I can't remember where we are going
But you're here with me

You once said to me
That I'm no good for anyone
I see that now
What are you doing?
I hope that you're happy
It's been so long

I wear my heart on my sleeve
It helps me to remember

Will you remember me?
15 years later?
I tried my best, to give you everything.
Track Name: Roots
City lights shine so inviting
Like stars in the sky
We both know that you're leaving here soon
But my roots grow deeply so

I can wait around in the sunshine
I'll wilt
I'll die
I'll fall apart
Before I wait around for something else
It's you and I till death do us part

Wipe those tears away from your eyes
This isn't goodbye
We both know that you're leaving here soon
But my roots grow stronger so

I know it's too late
To ask you to stay
Track Name: You
It's you I see when I fall asleep
And it's you that chases the ghosts from my dreams
It's you I call when I'm falling apart
And it's you the light that shines when it's dark

It's you
