Track Name: Any Way Out Of It
Lyrics:
How do we know what will happen next?
Confusion builds up as we start to press
And you don't see any way out of it (x3)

You fill your head with judgement and doubt (who doesn't)
Wooden fences to block it out.
And when you're picked and torn apart,
always remember you're a kid at heart

And you don't see any way out of it (x3)

The look in your eye, shows me that you care.
But truth holds doubts when you're not there.
Keeping your thoughts all kept locked up inside.
What are you really trying to hide?

You don't see any way out of it (x3)
Track Name: Positive Love
Well, I have no idea where you came from my
positive love, positive love

There will be so many days that we'll overcome my
positive love, positive love.

You make it feel oh so good.
You make it feel oh so good.
And I already know, what you already know
Yes, I already know, what you already know

(interlude)

Letting in the warmer feelings, letting in the closer feelings.
Letting in the warmer feelings, letting go of colder feelings.

And I already know, what you already know
Yes, I already know, what you already know

my, positive love (x5)
Track Name: Baby Steps
It's these baby steps that you take to heal and grow and you know that this takes time. You collect your thoughts you sit back and let them go,
you're not looking for heaven's door.

You're not looking for heaven's door, you're not looking for heaven's door. Take your hands and place them on my shoulders, move your eyelashes a little bit closer, closer, light a candle, relax, inhale the comfort.

I know that you're thinking about me that you're thinking about me, baby. I know that you're thinking about me, that you're thinking about me, that you're thinking about me.

I can't find the meaning in those silent words, take a pen and write them down. Are you trying to tell me that you would prefer, someone who thinks of you like I do, yeah yeah yeah.

I'm right here and I have found you, you're right here and you have found me, we're still searching for the cure, I'm right here and I have found it, you're right here and you have found it, it all seems to be a blur.

Take your hands and place them on my shoulders, move your eyelashes a little bit closer, closer, light a candle, relax, inhale the comfort.

Make things a little peaceful, peaceful, make things a little peaceful now.
Track Name: Spinning
Lyrics:
You took the words right out of my mouth and you found a way to write them down
You spoke and I spoke and we talked about how the world just seemed so upside down
But with this type of love we'll just keep learning if we both keep on spinning to figure it all out

Oh You took the words right out of my mouth and you found a way to write them down
You spoke and I spoke and we talked about how our love could make the world go round
'Cause with this type of love we'll just keep learning if we both keep on spinning to figure it all out
with this type of love we'll just keep learning if we both keep on spinning to figure it all out

---Transition ---

Oh You took the words right out of my mouth and you found a way to write them all down
You spoke and I spoke and we talked about how our love just seemed to stay around and we'll ...
figure it out, we'll figure this life out, if we keep on spinning we'll have a lot to talk about
we'll figure it out, oh we'll figure this life out, if we keep on spinning we'll have a lot to talk about
Track Name: Better Days
You're silent in this moment
and you're trying to make it last
When you let go of this moment you let your memories collapse.

Well there's no need for struggle
There's no need for pain
Just bring in the good karma
and bring on the better days

So let and let the good times flow for better days.
Waiting on better days.

Is there anybody out there
that keeps hoping for a sign?

Well keep on holding on to faith now and I'm sure you'll fine

Well there's no need for struggle
There's no need for pain
Just bring in the good karma
and bring on the better days

Do you, do you wait?
Do you or don't you know?
Do you wait?

So let go...
I said let go
and let the good times flow...
For Better Days.

Waiting on Better Days.
Track Name: Feel Of Summer
Well the Feel of Summer is near
and when I see your face
everything around me fades and disappears.

Autumn is around the corner,
soon the leaves will turn and fade
with a linger in the air

Well the feel of Winter is near and I can see your breath rising up into the atmosphere

Spring is just around the corner
People fill the streets again
(People fill the streets again)

Mmm, Oh yes it's true,
For the end of all our days are coming even closer than we ever thought we knew.

Mmm, I feel you I do,
For the end of all our days are coming even closer than we ever thought we knew.

So, get that feel, of Summer.
A little Feel, of Summer.

(whistle interlude)

Mmm, Oh yes it's true,
For the end of all our days are coming even closer than we ever thought we knew.

Mmm, I feel you I do,
For the end of all our days are coming even closer than we ever thought we knew.

So, get that feel, of Summer.
A little Feel, of Summer.
Track Name: Chances
Oh, quelle fréquence le temps passe, a quelle fréquence le temps passe, lorsque nous aurons nos chances, Et quand le temps qu'il va, le moment il va, comment nous perdons nos chances.
Track Name: Everlasting
I already feel right about this and I don't understand whats behind this
The feeling is tangible, sensational, astounding
a pliable mix of something endless everlasting

I already feel right about this and I can't comprehend what surrounds this
The feeling is tangible, sensational, astounding
a pliable mix of something endless everlasting

Everlasting, Everlasting, Everlasting, Everlasting.

I already learned so much about this, and nothing compares to how much in tune you are to fit in this.
The feeling is tangible, sensational, astounding
a pliable mix of something endless everlasting

Everlasting, Everlasting, Everlasting, Everlasting.
Track Name: Let It Be Me
Wondering about the one the only one that I just want to have

Don't know what she's thinking about because her thoughts fit tight just like a glove

Oh Let Be Me, Let It Be Me, Let It Be Me

How come you don't want me, when you want me,
I don't understand your mind
How come you can't answer, come on answer what you want,
don't hide inside

X2 Oh Let It be Me, Let It Be Me, Let It Be Me, Let It Be Me

X2 Oh Let it Be Me, Oh Let It Be Me

-Transition-

X2 Oh Let It be Me, Let It Be Me, Let It Be Me, Let It Be Me

X2 Oh Let it Be Me, Oh Let It Be Me
Track Name: Oh You
Oh you take two steps to consider what you'd like to understand
but there's no mathematical equation
to solve this complication, you love this situation

And you're breaking it down, you're breaking down, you're breaking it down

yeah, there's no need to break down

Oh you, you don't know what I'm about, but you can try to figure it out.

Yeah, you love sticking around like a post-it note
with the feeling of promise when you wrote:
"Let your love flow voluntarily, Let your heart feel vulnerability"

And when It's time to go you're always a site for sore eyes
waiting for another minute for your eyes to lock unto mine
There goes that tick of time.

Oh you, you don't know what I'm about, but you can try to figure it out.
Track Name: Negative Fears
I had high hopes I would see you today
but all of those hopes slowly drifted away 'cause the only thing here is the silence that my mind breaks

You travel to unravel that fear under your skin but the only thing traveling is the fear that's within it's a never ending one when you silence the love you have won.

Said who are you when your negative fears pass through?

As the breath weighs in heavy from the pulse of your heart, there's a thought that keeps ticking and leading you on you don't want the end to come 'cause this journey is what makes us one.

You travel to unravel that fear under your skin but the only thing unraveling is the fear that's within it's a never ending one when you silence the love you have won.

Said, who are you when your negative fears pass through? (x3)
Track Name: In The Stillness Of Water
I wanna lay my head in the stillness of water
I wanna feel the balance in and out of my skin
I wanna lay my head in the stillness of water
I want all of this weakness to subside from within

I wanna lay my head in the stillness of water
I wanna feel the silent hum under my skin
I wanna lay my head in the stillness of water
I wanna feel the calmness all over again

I wanna lay my head down (x4)
