You're autumn baby And you're automatic too You're autumn baby And I feel that same way too Am I broken? There's nothing I could do Am I open Or am I closed from you? We've fallen baby And it's a long way down We've fallen baby And what good have I found? Am I broken? There's nothing I could do Am I open Or am I closed from you? Summer in my heart And autumn in your hair I'm moving passed your arms I swear I'll do no harm You're autumn.... Why have I - why have I forsaken all What kind of - what kind of hold she has I could not tell you?

Woman what's you name Woman I'm so glad you came The time is on my back it's the time we know we can't have back You're inside, I'm inside, You're inside out... All we can't have back I know the words we lack I know we can't move back at all.... Woman what's to say When all we've loved has been washed away In time, I'll know we're done so let me love this setting sun You're inside, I'm inside, You're inside out All we can't have back I know the words we lack I know we can't move back at all.... All that world we had I know it can't come back I know we can't move back at all.... Woman I know you love me Woman it's not enough But I'm glad you came....I'm glad

O Lord where am I? I kissed my love and I took a ride Time you thief, you can't deny That you will take the platter.... O Lord hear my cry I kissed my love and said goodbye The time it moves and so must I And we were broke asunder.... And I lost my twist of light our hearts are heavy and my hands are tied And I lost my twist of light There's nothing left but still the city's bright O I lost my light O Still the stars are bright I said O I'll sing tonight.... O Lord I lost my light....

I Believe 03:41
When I sing aloud I guess my darkness wasn't what it was So I'll sing it true And when I sing, I sing for you Yes I want to believe Yes I want to believe in you When I hold you head You know I will not let you fall away So I'll sing instead That you my love are all an open way Yes I want to believe Yes I want to believe in you

My Sea 03:32
All my features age All my features change All my features age All my features change All my features keep on moving All my features keep on leaving Let me ride your wave Are you just my sea? Let me ride your wave Are you just my sea? For we, we leave.... We leave Hand upon my skin All my features age Turns now to begin All my features age All my features keep on moving All my features keep on leaving Let me ride your wave Are you just my sea? Let me ride your wave Are you just my sea? For we, we leave We leave My Sea.....

She's got moves and she's got tether I can't believe she brought great weather I don't want to know you anymore, no I won't even walk that slowly I'll take my time although it's lonely I don't want to walk there anymore, no Even though I don't remember Forgot your date, forgot your weather But I won't forget you evermore, no You spill your lack, and we all spill the same I'd spit you out if not for my chains There's nothing here and it's ringing in your ear Spill me out.... Even though our sun is fading I'm a whip that's been upbraiding And I have cut you evermore And though the time is thin and narrow I'll refuse your truth, refuse your sorrow Cause I don't need them anymore, no You spill your lack, and we all spill the same I'd spit you out if not for my chains There's nothing here and it's ringing in your ear Spit me out, spill me out, sing me out....

Wasted Words 01:48
Why don't I do the things I should Would you release me, I know you could.... She tries, while I hide To dream of you and the things you say Don't waste your words on me

With one hand and single heart I will stand, I won't fall apart With one word and single voice Let it shine, you don't have a choice Waiting on your heart again I'm just a fool, I'm on the wheel again Waiting on your heart again I'm just a fool, I'm on the wheel again With one light and a single breath I see you there, I know something's left All my life, I could not be free But I sing for you, would you sing for me? Waiting on your heart again I'm just on a fool, I'm on the wheel again I'm just on a fool, I'm on the wheel again

Your autumn, now it's time to leave you suffocated me with pain, now it's time to breathe I was there for you during your times of need But all you did was lie and deceive You're saying you're sorry, what am I to believe? Actions and words, I'll let you tell me I thought next to your heart is where you held me It's best we be apart, I gotta sail free This love is going down like gravity So baby pack your clothes and pass the keys You were something like a bad disease, I'm cured now so you can call it fast relief You're autumn baby And you're automatic too You're autumn baby And I feel that same way too Finally you're out of my life, it wan't right Didn't need the pain and strife through all the fights Me and you yelling at night, I thank god every single day that I saw the light It's time for to move on, pursue my own path Realized that your were a snake in the grass All you really wanted was my snake and my cash But little did you know that Patch is great with the dash You had me hooked by your shape and your ass Beautiful smile, plus the way that you laughed Sorry to say but those days are the past I'm the man on fire, you're the tray full of ash You're autumn baby And you're automatic too You're autumn baby And I feel the same way, Feel that same way too Why have I - why have I forsaken all? What kind of - what kind of hold she has? You're autumn....

Don't wanna hold forever I know just the way time passes I have looked into the mirror And I see.... Let me now remember You were always flowing forward With your head down You were dreaming in your sleep If you feel that you can't turn, But your heart will always burn Then no matter what they say I won't let you fall you away Here it is our city That wears all its masks and armor Let us take them off together And then we'll see.... Don't wanna be a siren Don't wanna sing misfortune I just want this moment now To be our own If you feel that you can't turn, But your heart will always burn, Then no matter what they say I won't let you fall you away With one love, with one heart

You're Here 03:57
I loved this little town And all the fools who rushed down On the Friday, Saturday exchange They're all now cut adrift Tumbling from my lips A memory I feel but can't see You're here and you won't change Yesterday is gone, tomorrow sings its song I realize I was wrong, but I can't change All my words a dream, and your features darkening I hear you answering that this can't be For you're here and you won't change But that don't mean I know And that don't mean I'm coming home I'm singing in the dark, I'm alone and I'm apart But I don't know I'll be asking for your truth But can I know and feel it too Cause I don't know? So throw your sail, Throw it high, I can't come home So throw your sail, your sail Throw it high, I can't come home You're here and you won't change Like the past, we disappear But my love must stay the same But my love must stay the same

The Wheel 03:45
You say the day is dark, But you see You say your love is gone, But you still need me I hope these winds will change and guide me toward you Let me sing aloud and let my song be true For our hearts are full.... But this wheel it turns me round Just to stand me here again Can't you see we're turning now Brought around just to say I hope these winds will change and let me pass on through But no these barbs of time they cling to me and you For our heart our full.... Still this wheel it turns me round Just to stand me here again Can't you see we're turning now Brought around just to say What could I say? When I'm sure where I am headed When the sea has swept me up again I won't cry, I know my fate is sealed On that wheel....
