Track Name: Lamplighter
Lamplighter

Light up the town
Light up the city
Make things glow
Make things pretty.

Where are you now
Its getting late
the streets are growing dark
we're all here waiting again.

Lamplighter
you burn it all before the night falls.
Your wasted flame
burns all day then nothing else remains.

You've forgotten
who you really are.
Now you have left us
all here in the dark.

The lanterns hang low
but there's a full moon
to guide us where
ever we may choose.

If you feel the light of love
maybe you'll see
what you're so afraid of.

Lamplighter
you burn it all before the night falls.
Your wasted flame
burns all day then nothing else remains.

You've forgotten
who you really are.
Now you have left us
all here in the dark.

Burn, burn, burn, burn
Burn, burn, in the fear
Burn, burn, burn, burn
Burn, burn, in the love.

Lamplighter
you burn it all before the night falls.
Your wasted flame
burns all day then nothing else remains.

You've forgotten
who you really are.
Now you have left us
all here in the dark.

So light up the town
Light up the city
Make things glow
Make thing pretty.
Track Name: Love Remains
Love Remains

Make me something I won't forget
And i'll put your love on my shelf.
Just for awhile until i come back
and I've got it all figured out.

This life we made,
we were so brave.
We jumped right in to the fire.
This love remains
nothing changes.
Just moving on for awhile.

All these days you made so clear
that you're the hunter and I'm
your dear one
That is running off into the trees
but its not your time
to capture me.

This life we made,
we were so brave.
We jumped right in to the fire.
This love remains
nothing changes.
Just moving on for awhile.

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh...

When I come back,
I want to hold you
Like i always knew that I could hold you.
When I come back
I want to love you
Like i always knew that I could love you.
And when i come back,
I want to give you
everything that i always knew I could give you.
Track Name: The Queen
The Queen

Make me a queen she says
to every man she meets.
Put a crown on top of her head
and you better believe.

She'll treat you just like a king
yeah, she'll give you everything.
That is until the next better thing
comes along,
then she'll be gone.

Oh oh oh...

She twirls and she dances,
She pins her hearts on the wall.
She loves and she romances
and gives them their dreams afterall.

She'll treat you just like a king
yeah, she'll give you everything.
That is until the next better thing
comes along,
then she'll be gone.

Oh oh oh...

Oh well make no mistake
one day she might stay
if you treat her just like a queen.
And she'll take to her throne
like she never has known
and she'll see....

She'll treat you just like a king
yeah, she'll give you everything.
That is until the next better thing
comes along,
then she'll be gone.
That is until
the next best thing comes along,
then she'll be gone.
Track Name: Once and Again Friend
Once and Again Friend

My once and again friend
you cross my mind now and then
and when you do I wish that I could ask you..

How does your heart fare
cause the weather's felt a bit cool in there
the last few times that i
have seen you out somewhere.

and i want to remind you
that my heart knows you
it rolls like you,
it opens and closes its doors too.

And I see you in there
but i will not stare
you can use whatever mask
feels safe to wear.

My once and again friend,
I love you like I loved you
from the beginning.
And i will love you til the end.
Once and again friend,
You make it hard
to defend all the love
that i want to send to you.

I will love you the same
and I will not blame you
even if you cant say my name
without feeling some kind of pain.

I know how deep forgiveness gets
to work through hurt without regrets
i've already taken the dive
to accept...

What's mine
and seen it as a gift of the divine
so now's your chance
to be your love,
to show you what you're made of.

My once and again friend,
I love you like I loved you
from the beginning.
And i will love you til the end.
Once and again friend,
You make it hard
to defend all the love
that i want to send to you.

Well it hurts to see yourself in me, i know
but when you come to something
like a wound in need of mending
will you see it as your own?
will you own what you've been shown?

Or will you choose not to see me anymore,
slam the door hit the floor
as I come walking by as if to hide
What i've already spied with my loving eye?

My once and again friend
you're out there doing the best you can
and saving the world,
trying not to pretend
and I'll see all your beauty even if i never see you again...

My once and again friend,
I love you like I loved you
from the beginning.
And i will love you til the end.
Once and again friend,
You make it hard
to defend all the love
that i want to send to you.

(repeat)
Track Name: This Time Next Year
This Time Next Year

There's a new year upon me
I'm begging for some reform,
there's an obvious reflection
that I've been running from.

Sometime early last summer
I started holding my ears,
covering up my eyes,
i couldn't speak through my fears.

Take me oh take me I said
to the man I adored.
Take me oh take me
cause i am barely me anymore.

Oh I pray that it never comes to this again.
Oh this time next year,
I'll be so much clearer,
and closer to the ones I love.
I'll be everything to me,
and it will change how I see
everything, everything...
This time next year.

There are songs that you've written
and there are lines of my own
that tell all the story of our love and our wars.
There's the dream that began us,
the one that took us by surprise
and now that dream is hidden
in the tears from our eyes.

Take me oh take me I said
to the man I adored.
Take me oh take me
cause i am barely me anymore.

Oh I pray that it never comes to this again.
Oh this time next year,
I'll be so much clearer,
and closer to the ones I love.
I'll be everything to me,
and it will change how I see
everything, everything...
This time next year.

Hand me my crown
and I'll put it on...
Hand me my crown
and I'll put i on....

Oh I pray that it never comes to this again.
Oh this time next year,
I'll be so much clearer,
and closer to the ones I love.
I'll be everything to me,
and it will change how I see
everything, everything...
This time next year.
