Track Name: You're Autumn
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?
Track Name: What We Can't Have Back
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
Track Name: Lost My Light
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....
Track Name: I Believe
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
Track Name: My Sea
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.....
Track Name: She's Got Moves
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....
Track Name: Wasted Words
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
Track Name: On the Wheel Again
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
Track Name: You're Autumn II
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....
Track Name: I Won't Let You Fall
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
Track Name: You're Here
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
Track Name: The Wheel
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....
