1. I’m Here

When you’re emtpy and you don’t know
Why it all escapes you, escapes you
If those dreams you’re holding on to shatter
And it breaks you, breaks you

When you try so hard and you just can’t win
Yeah I know that feeling
You don’t wanna talk but you still want a friend
Anytime you need me
I’m here, here, I am here

When you need a prayer but you can’t find the words
Then I’ll pray for you, for you
And if the night comes down so hard
That you’re lost in the dark
I’ll find you, I come and find you

When you try so hard and you just can’t win
Yeah I know that feeling
You don’t wanna talk but you still want a friend
Anytime you need me
I’m here, here, I am here

Anytime you’re lonely, anytime you’re crawling
Anytime you’re falling down

You try so hard but you just can’t win
I know that feeling
You don’t wanna talk but you still want a friend
Anytime you need me
I’m here, I am here
I’m here, here, I am here

2. Crawl

On a way home, down the same road
I can feel it again, the floor beneath both of us
Is trembling now, because the words are shaking
Telling me now, doesn’t change anything
You’re telling me how, I should have done something else

But how can I be guilty of a crime you started
Stop right there, ’cause you can do better

I’m not gonna crawl, that’s not what I want
I’m not afraid to stand, where the others turned and ran
If you have to cry, I’ll make your tears mine
You’re the one I want, but I’m never gonna crawl

Standing outside, thinking how lucky I was
Hitting my stride, being there with you
But now it’s like your emotion, wants to claim something
Gone so wrong, ’cause you can do better

I’m not gonna crawl, that’s not what I want
I’m not afraid to stand, where the others turn and ran
If you have to cry, I’ll make your tears mine
You’re the one I want, but I’m never gonna crawl

I will make that we stay, no I’m gonna change it
You can leave me astray, from your heart
somewhere deep in your soul, there’s a wait to get out of all
You hurt, and make this matter

I’m not gonna crawl, that’s not what I want
I’m not afraid to stand, where the others turn and ran
If you have to cry, I’ll make your tears mine
I’m never gonna crawl

3. When Summer Ends

Ever since I met you
I’ve been waiting for the snow to fall
Waiting for the moon to call
The sun out of my eyes
And I can’t help but wonder
Why you would spend your days with me
Why you would have your way with me
Why you’re with me at all

And I wish it was forever
But nothing lasts forever at all, no

I know our time is now
Still I tell myself somehow
This thing won’t end as it began
You’re still here
When summer ends

Another day is dawning
And I can’t believe the light I see
You’re standing right in front of me
A wonder to my eyes
And I don’t dare to look away
Afraid that you might disappear
And you were never really here
It’s all been in my mind again

And I wish it was forever
But nothing lasts forever at all, at all

I know our time is now
Still I tell myself somehow
This thing won’t end as it began
You’re still here
When summer ends

I used to prefer to be lonely
But you seem to be the only
One I can’t let go

I know our time is now
Still I tell myself somehow
This thing won’t end as it began
You’re still here
When summer ends

This thing,
This life won’t end as it began
You’ll still be here
When summer ends

Ever since I met you
I’ve been waiting for the snow to fall

4. Was It Worth It?

Before I begin, let me tell you the state that I’m in
I’m throwing out reason again, and it takes me back
Well, as I rewind, leaving the darkness behind
It’s turning increasingly bright, and it burns my eyes

To see us both on fire, makes me weak inside
And my breathing, slows down
I try to fight it, but I can’t help it now

Was it worth the try?
Wasn’t all this waiting for you, worth the while?
Was it worth, the goodbye?

From of the top of the hill, the signs are so clear
We choose not to see, ignore what we feel
And the promise, kept us blind

Now I’m waving a flag, won’t you please help me out?
We can’t go back, and we can’t stop now
I play it over and over and over, in my mind

I see us both on fire, makes me weak inside
And my breathing, slows down
I try to fight it, but I can’t help it now

Was it worth the try?
Wasn’t all this waiting for you, worth the while?
Was it worth, the goodbye?

I took the pros and the cons
The right and the wrongs
And the heart and the songs

But the pain lingers on
But the pain lingers on

Was it worth the try?
Wasn’t all this waiting for you, worth the while?
Was it worth, the goodbye?

5. Anything is Possible

When all the things that seem to matter
Slowly vanish in the haze
When all your dreams are suddenly shatterd
Or life just seems to laugh you in the face

Don’t hold on to what you know
Sometimes you just have to let it go

Keep on reaching, for the stars
Anything is possible
Keep believing, it’s not that far
Anything is possible

When you just worry ’bout tomorrow
When you’re too trouble to appreciate, today
When you get lost on the road, you follow
I might have to change your ways

Don’t hold on to what you know
Sometimes you’re gotta have to let it go

Keep on reaching, for the stars
Anything is possible
Keep believing, it’s not that far
Anything is possible

It’s never right around the corner, are we getting warmer?
Nobody knows
And if love waits, just around the corner
Why wait ’till it shows?

Keep on reaching, for the stars
Anything is possible
Keep believing, it’s not that far
Anything is possible

6. Other Side Of Me

Why do you misunderstand me
Though I kept silence, I’ve got plenty
To say where I can find
The words again oh why

Do you think I don’t need you
I may be blind
But hey I can still read you
Let’s turn the page we’re on
Not close the book

You think this is the perfect time to end this
But I know there’s still a chance for us to went this
Open your eyes, to who I really am and see
There’s still an other side of me

Try to see the good that’s in me
Cause I know I’m just not ready
To burn a house down
Down to the ground
and I feel we’re on to so much more
If only you’d explore
the road I see ahead to you
I think this is the perfect time to end this

Though I know there’s still a chance for us to went this
Open your eyes to who I really am and see
There’s still an other side of me

Open your eyes to who I really am and see
A perfect opportunity
To meet the man that I could be
I’ll show you an other side of me

7. Bigger Heart

Nothing you say, can change my mind
None of your words will bend my course
I’m like a train but without the rails
I’ve got the wind blowing in my sails
I don’t need no signs ahead
To tell me where I’m going to

Wherever we stand becomes my way
Wherever we trade did find my grow
Don’t think too much ’cause we’ll go insane
Let’s just kiss and resolve the pain
No need to understand, as long as we believe it’s true

So let’s get high on a bigger love, on a bigger heart
Let’s not swim for the show and try right from the start
Let’s get high on a bigger love, on a bigger heart

But I would rather rejump an fall,
Yeah I would rather rejump than to never fly at all

We could never get hurt, the way we are
We gotta get down to feel the floor
We won’t get bruised and we never run
But why regret what we haven’t done
Let’s not sit and wait, but let just try and make it true

‘Cause all I know is given a change, we should take it
Every closed door we’ve got to find out what there hides, hides

So let’s get high on a bigger love, on a bigger heart
Let’s not swim for the show and try right from the start
Let’s get high on a bigger love, on a bigger heart

So let’s get high on a bigger love, on a bigger heart
Let’s not swim for the show and try right from the start
Let’s get high on a bigger love, on a bigger heart

8. Hear Me Out

Hush, don’t make a sound
Trust, that we can will somehow
Breathe, before you run away
If you could just believe that we could find the way
I’d make you stay

You’re here, but your heart is on the run
Can’t keep holding on, with i’m the only one
So deside, deside make up your mind
I’ve drawn a line, but now the end’s in sight
You’re out of time

How are we supposed to last, when you’re leaving
Looking for the greener grass, on the other side
And it’s here and now

If you could just stop running
How are we supposed to shine
When you always keep me in the dark
The time is here and now
Just hear me out

I never thought that I would risk it all
I never thought we’d walk the line
But now I’m pushing up against the wall
Won’t you meet me on the other side?
Hear me out, hear me out
Just hear me out, just hear me out

Hear me out
Hear me out

How are we supposed to last when you’re leaving
Looking for the greener grass, on the other side
When it’s here and now
If we could just stop running
How are we supposed to shine
When you always leave me in the dark
The time is here and now
Hear me out

9. Broken Tonight

You see the world through your window
You don’t even go outside anymore
You only feel safe feeling hollow
You think your scars are too deep to be cured

You hide your heart in the shadows
So afraid to open up to anyone
But I can see your faded halo
And I can make it burn again, like the sun

If you stay for a while
Let me hold you tonight
Just-open your eyes you will see the light

If you stay for a while
Let me hold you tonight
Just-open your eyes you will see the light
Shine

You don’t have to be frozen
You don’t have to be broken tonight

But I can see your faded halo
And I can make it burn again, like the sun

Just stay for a while
Let me hold you tonight
Just-open your eyes you will see the light shine
You don’t have to be frozen
You don’t have to be broken
You don’t have to be broken tonight
