Track Name: Until Tomorrow (acoustic)
It's about that time that we should walk away.
Don't turn around. Don't say another word
because we both know how words don't show
this love we hold. For now this is goodnight
until tomorrow...

Fast asleep as we lie under a starry sky
and dream about the day ahead of us.
And we both know how this dream unfolds.
We meet again to hold each other tight
until tomorrow...

And we both know how words don't show
this love we hold. For now just say goodnight.
And we both know how this dream unfolds.
We meet again to hold each other tight
until tomorrow
until tomorrow
until tomorrow...

Track Name: Neighboring Stars (acoustic)
We've gone far past neighboring stars
All night moving to find who we are...

As the earth we left behind us
gets smaller in the distance,
there's a system that we're nearing
of a planet that seems young.
We can land on the equator
and the rays from this new sun
should keep us warm
as we stay here tonight...

May we dream of building a home
out here - quiet as we're left alone...

In the morning when we wake up,
we can stare out at the ocean
for a moment right before we hit the sky.
Then I'll fire up the engines
as you plot our destination.
To this planet, say goodbye.

So will you tell me where we're going
or should I wait to be surprised?
I guess it doesn't matter,
as long as I'm with you...

We've gone far past neighboring stars...

φ
Track Name: Dare We Fly (acoustic)
Damage aside
a white flag is waving
as I surrender moments from ending.
Forward to what's right
to make sense of feelings tonight.
Forward to what's right.

As we go searching, sorrow's surrounding
the fading winds under our wings.
They take us crashing down to the surface.
Why should we be here?
Once up high above we belonged.
Will we fly again?

As broken pieces distant and scattered,
a jigsaw puzzle bruised and battered.
Once all together, through time undone.
Less becomes knowing of the other one.
May we find what's right?
Searching for answers, hoping for something.
Will we be alright?

But be not certain as better thoughts surface.
We learn from the sorrow and things that will hurt us.
Like stage and curtain, a cast and a crew,
the story anew about me and you.
This time we'll act differently - that's what we'll do.
You can play me and I'll play as you.
Then We'll Know what's right.
A second chance rising to fix up our wings.
Dare we fly again
Dare we fly again
Dare we fly again...

Track Name: Chasing (acoustic)
I'm no better chasing after you
I did everything that I could do
It seems you need a different point of view
When you're touch is empty,
This reveals a clue...

All throughout the day and afternoon
Then the evening comes - still thinking about you
Curious of what you've been up to
All the things I miss and what we use to do

I need you here...
I need you here...
I need you here...
I need you here...

But I'm no better chasing after you
I did everything that I could do
It seems you need a different point of view
When you're touch is empty this reveals a clue.

I'm no better chasing after you...
I'm no better chasing after you...
I'm no better chasing after you...
I'm no better chasing after you...

Track Name: In Love Without You (acoustic)
I fell in love without you
I swear I didn't mean to
She came around and she stole my heart
Now I'm in love without you
New things to get use to
Beyond what we've been through
And while my heart's been like a statue,
I've fallen deep without you
So don't wait up for me
It's not a phase - temporary
No secrets in a journal entry
Just use your lucid eyes to see

I fell in love without you
I swear I didn't mean to
She came around and she stole my heart
Now I'm in love without you
New things to get use to
Beyond what we've been through
And while my heart's been like a statue,
I've fallen deep without you
I fell in love without you
I'm so in love without you
I fell in love without you
I've fallen deep without you

φ
Track Name: Shelter (acoustic)
Although it seems there's nowhere to go
With no Knocks on your front door
Tear drops on your bedroom floor
The phone rings - still you ignore

Oh, I really need to understand you
Oh, I really need to understand you..

So head right down your street once more
Meet me near that corner store
The clouds' roar makes the rain down-pour
Shelter - that's what I'm here for

Oh, I really need to understand you
Oh, I really need to understand you
Oh, I really need to understand you
Oh, I really need to understand you...

Although it seems there's nowhere to go
With no Knocks on your front door
Head right down your street once more
Shelter - that's what I'm here for...

φ
Track Name: The Engineer (acoustic)
I turn to the engineer building the man
She's subtle while moving a tool in her hand
Ruins once scattered about on the land
Become a torso - I don't understand

Designed so brilliantly through
She's such a genius
She knows what to do
With care and confidence too
She's so inclined to make someone new

Solder and wire through digits and limb
Sprockets and circuit-boards given to him
Coding her character's emotion sim (simulation)
Beyond the numbers there's someone within

Designed so brilliantly through
She's such a genius
She knows what to do
With care and confidence too
She's so inclined to love someone new

φ
Track Name: Jealous Nova (acoustic)
I'm not waiting for answers
or the truth to be clear.
I'm not sticking around to be wasted
and I'm not staying here...

All my sadder days in such subtle ways
might be killing me when you're gone...

I've come to be alone in my head for a while.
Consider me empty
and here when I'm closing my eyes
I'm inside finding you...

There's no truth in the answers
or in the lies that we've told.
In some way I can feel like I'm human with you
but only with you...

All my Saturdays in such subtle ways
might be killing me when you're gone...

I've come to be alone in my head for a while.
Consider me empty
and here when I'm closing my eyes
I'm inside finding you...

And honestly I've tried my best to stay cool
and wait for you to come around.
Here in the back of my station I'm waiting for you.
One day you'll come around
And honestly I've tried my best to stay cool
and wait for you to come around.
Here in the back of my station I'm waiting for you.
One day you'll come around

I've come to be alone in my head for a while.
Consider me empty
and here when I'm closing my eyes
I'm inside finding you...
I've come to be alone in my head for a while.
Consider me empty
and here when I'm closing my eyes
I'm inside finding you...

Finding you...
Finding you...
Finding you...
Finding you...
Finding you...
Finding you...

One day you'll come around...
One day you'll come around...
One day you'll come around...
One day you'll come around...

Track Name: Who Are You Now (acoustic)
Who are you now
Oh how things turned out
It's you without a doubt
But who are you now

All I knew was you back then
And all I did was be your friend

So who are you now
While time has been without
A memory talked about
Who are you now

All I knew was you back then
And all I did was be your friend
As moments pass on by again
It's strange how this might be the end

Who are you now
Who are you now
It's you without a doubt
But who are you now

φ
Track Name: Be It So (acoustic)
Be it so.. I'll meet you at the station soon
All systems go
to afar.. A place beyond the distant view
Call out my name...

I'll hear your voice echoing through the wind
I'll find you as the space is closing in
We'll move slowly as night comes to an end
and wake up just to start over again

And although the time will seem to go so fast
I won't forget my love
Throughout the days, the memories we make are saved
Fear not at all

We'll hold on to this idea until then
and dream about the moments we begin
I'm writing you just words this afternoon
but be it so, I know I'll see you soon

I'll hear your voice echoing through the wind
I'll find you as the space is closing in
We'll move slowly as night comes to an end
And wake up just to start over again
We'll hold on to these ideas until then
And dream about the moments we begin
I'm writing you just words this afternoon
But be it so, I know I'll see you soon
