Track Name: Our Story
this is the story of our solution
this is the story of our goodbye
you said the end meant resolution
with a tear in your eye
you don't have to make me listen
you don't have to make me smile

you don't have to say you're missin'
when you don't miss a thing
when you turn the lights off with a tear in your eye
you won't have to make me listen
you won't have to make me smile, anymore.
you don't have to make me smile.

it was the story of our solution
it was the story of our goodbye
you said the end meant resolution with a tear in your eye
you won't have to make me list
you won't have to make me smile, anymore.
Track Name: Someone Like You
i need someone just like you
I need something true
I need something to hold on to
I need a girl like you

change is hard
sad is rough
everybody knows
the hardest part
ain't giving up
it's letting go
I need someone just like you
I need a girl like you.

You are my light
I just got lost in the night
I got nothing to prove
I got nothing to lose
with someone like you
I need a girl like you

sad is rough
everybody knows
the hardest part
ain't giving up
it's letting go.
I need someone just like you

Track Name: World To Bring Me Down
You ain't got no faith in what you're sure of
you need something sweet
and when you're sick of them all
I'll be the only thing you're sure of
this night belongs to you and me
you can only be what matters
'cause I'm seeing all I need
and your kiss is all that matters

it would take the world to bring me down
the whole world down
it would take the world to bring me down.

don't let 'em tell ya that this is wrong
or love is never found when you're lookin'
I'm higher than I've been and you were all I needed.

it would the the world to bring me down
the whole world down
it would take the world to bring me down.
Track Name: Back To The Start
I remember your ways, you were lost in the stars
holding out for a change in the night
when you life is gone in a flash you better spend your days running
back to the start
your love was pure and it fell from the sky
i did all not to keep it coming down
when you life is gone in a instant
you better spend most of your days running
back to the start.
take back your pretty things
take anything you want
'cause none of that means anything if you won't
back to the start
back to the start.
Track Name: Another Chance
how many times can your heart break
how many times can you mistake I know their was a time when I knew the way
now I couldn't even find the door
I know their was a time when you needed me
but maybe I needed you more
I'll have another drink cuz I need to think
and pass out on your floor

I need another chance
cause I never knew what I had
give me another chance
I needed this time to grow
give me another chance

how many nights will you be away
how many dreams will I have to face
knowing that your lying under someone else's covers
I knew you would
and I remember Ricky's line her said "you'll get what you deserve" I know I should
this is your life and your in it
tell me you know how I feel.

I need another chance
cause I never knew what I had
give me another chance
I needed this time to grow
give me another chance

Track Name: Lost In You
Oh my love,
I gave everything not to be without
and I ran so hard at the face of doubt
when I got lost in you.

Oh my friend,
will you come for me when I reach the end
I climbed so high
and I fell so deeply
when I got lost in you.
oh I got lost in you.

though I tried so hard not to show it
yeah I tried so hard
yeah I tried so hard
but I lost it
oh I got lost in you
Oh I got lost in you.
oh I got lost in you.
Track Name: Round The Corner From Lonely
all across the world I see the loneliness in eyes
and even though the years will pass we won't look back and laugh
we'll try to be happy
yeah we'll try to be glad
we'll be happy
round the corner from lonely

yesterday's peering over your shoulder
things aren't getting bad
they're getting worse
and yesterday we knew the difference from lonely
the pictures speak louder than words

we'll try to be happy
yeah we'll try to be glad
we'll be happy
round the corner from lonely

I'm calling out to all the lonely people in their lives
years don't last as long as memories
there's no turning back.

all across the world I see the loneliness in eyes
and even though the years will pass we won't look back and laugh
we'll try to be happy
yeah we'll try to be glad
we'll be happy
round the corner from lonely
Track Name: Last Goodbye
this is the last time I'm ever gonna say goodbye
so what are you gonna do?
I know I've told you so many times
I don't know how I'll be without not thinkin' about you

when you think about the moment
when you think about the time
will you think about the last goodbye
goodbye.

this is the last time I'm ever gonna say goodbye
this door I'm walking through
I know I've changed my mind about a million times
I don't need you then I do
but you need a man not a boy who thinks he can

when you think about the moment
when you think about the time
will you think about the last goodbye
goodbye.

It's gonna be the last time
so I better say it loud
I don't know how I'll be without not thinking about you now
it's gotta be the last time so i better say it loud.
goodbye.
goodbye.
