Track Name: Sunlight
Shake the dreams from your hair
With the sunlight coming down
And you can’t be what you were
When the sunlight hits the ground

All my kingdom lies
Subject at my feet
But a moment in the light
I cannot quite keep
All the spires rise
To open in the sun
When I have closed my eyes
And missed the moment come

Shake the dreams from your hair
With the sunlight coming down
And you can’t be what you were
When the sunlight hits the ground

Yes my kingdom lies
Subject at my feet
But a moment here with you
I cannot quite keep
And so it turns to stone
As you look away
The beauty of the moment
Is now locked away
But I won’t close my eyes
To miss the moment run
The beauty we remembered
Is opened in the sun

Shake the dreams from your hair
With the sunlight coming down
And you can’t be what you were
When the sunlight hits the ground
Track Name: When I First Froze
I remember when I first froze
I was buried in those winter snows
I couldn't move or turn about
My love was gone and I was crying out
That oh what I couldn't do
Was hold on love to you
Though I wanted to
So I held on in the cold
With my shadow growing tall
For I wanted you always
And I wanted you to stay

Why does my sun go down?
I feel you now
Though I couldn't then

The sun it took its time with me
And though it thawed me out and set me free
With what I stood to lose or stood to gain
I knew full well that I'd freeze again
Oh what I couldn't do
Was hold on to you
Though I wanted to
So I held on in the cold
While the world about me froze
For I wanted you always
And I wanted you to stay
Track Name: Hold Up the Sky
I know, but I don't got a reason
That you and I could hold up a sky
And I felt, when you're moving and breathing
That just that could up the sky

Cause we can't run back again to stay
We only flow one way....

But when you say
My heart is alive
I know, I know
And I reply
I won't let our love die
Cause I know, I know

The days run, and they won't come back again
Time flows out to the sea
You and I love, we won't be coming back
But I hold you close to me

For we can't run back again to stay
We only flow one way....

But when you say
My heart is alive
I know, I know
And I reply
I won't let our love die
Cause I know, I know
Track Name: Lethe's Lights
When I was young,
I played my tambourine
To the songs that were sung
Out there on the streets.
I would laugh with my boys
And cheer the serenade
That would spill from the bars
With all the games we played.
But I didn't know myself
And I didn't know it then
That the leaves that were falling
I wouldn't see again
So I laughed with my friends
And we cheered the serenade
It spilled from our hearts to fall away

And soon I learned
To play a game of hearts.
It was all I could do
But fumble with my cards
I asked you for a rematch
And for you to shuffle fair
But the time was marching on.....
So I drank with my friends
And we cheered the coming day
It spilled out from our hearts to fall away

There's a fire in heaven
But ashes at our feet
So I fled from the banquet
Stumbling to the beat
And though I didn't know myself
And I didn't know it then
All those I loved
I wouldn't see again
So I drank at last call
And I cheered the closing day
And I spilled from their hearts to fall away

Lethe's lights are all burning low.....
I'm burning low....
Lethe's lights are all I can know....
