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)

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)

Baby Steps 03:40
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.

Spinning 03:07
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

Better Days 04:30
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.

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.

Chances 02:10
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.

Everlasting 03:43
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.

Let It Be Me 03:08
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

Oh You 03:21
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.
11.
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)
12.
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)
13.
What is it that you'd like to say? All those words always fly out in such right ways Sitting there with a silent smile Let it linger on as long as there is a longer while Lay the pieces where they fall I know I am here right now and I'll stay as long as there is a longer while what is it that you'd like to say? All your words always fly out in such right ways Lay the pieces where they fall And I know One day we'll be at one with all good things Yes I know One day we'll finally get there And I see One day we'll be at one with everything But for now Lay the pieces where they fall
14.
Oh, you won a little piece of my heart Said, Oh you won it right from the start They say that is feels easier Well I say that it feels just a little bit tougher Oh, you won a little piece of my heart Every now and then I feel a little piece of you Every now and then I feel what I once knew and I bottle it up, Bottle it up but I let it go I bottle it up and bottle it up but I let it go Oh you won a little piece of my heart You hold a little piece of my heart with you Now and again I find I separate all my thoughts How come it feels twice as hard even though we're miles apart Because I bottle it up and bottle it up but I let it go I bottle it up and bottle it up but I let it go Oh, Oh you won a little piece of my heart
