Track Name: Fall Out Of Line
FALL OUT OF LINE

STEP ON A CRACK GONNA BREAK YOUR BACK
FALL OUT OF LINE, TIME AFTER TIME
GONNA FALL OUT OF LINE

RUN OUT OF ROOM, SLIP TOO SOON
TRY TO SAVE FACE, BUT YOUR FAR FROM GRACE
FALL FROM GRACE

LOOK ALL AROUND
TURNED UPSIDE DOWN
EYES STRAIGHT, STRAIGHT AHEAD
GONNA FALL OUT OF LINE

SUNNY AND BRIGHT WAS NEVER YOUR STYLE
PUSHED TOO HARD, 'TIL THEY LOST YOUR FILE
BROKE YOUR SMILE

BROKEN SCREAMS AND DEAD END DREAMS
LEFT ALL ALONE, HELL IS YOUR HOME
HELL IS YOUR HOME

LOOK ALL AROUND
TURNED UPSIDE DOWN
EYES STRAIGHT, STRAIGHT AHEAD
GONNA FALL OUT OF LINE

SOLO

SUNNY AND BRIGHT WAS NEVER YOUR STYLE
PUSHED TOO HARD, 'TIL THEY LOST YOUR FILE
BROKE YOUR SMILE

STEP ON A CRACK GONNA BREAK YOUR BACK
FALL OUT OF LINE, TIME AFTER TIME
GONNA FALL OUT OF LINE

FALL OUT OF LINE
FALL OUT OF LINE
FALL OUT OF LINE
FALL OUT OF LINE
Track Name: Life Is Hard
LIFE IS HARD

WELL, I LIVE LIFE HARD / FROM DAY TO DAY
THAT'S HOW I GOT HERE / cuz I ROLLED THAT WAY
WHEN I WHEN I MET YOU / YOU DIDN'T SEEM TO CARE
ALL I COULD DO / WAS SIT AND STARE

BUT WHEN I GET UP / I'M COMING OVER
I'M A LITTLE STRUNG OUT / AND NOT QUITE SOBER
I CAN TAKE IT ALL IN / I CAN SPIT IT OUT
BUT THERE'S ONE THING I CAN GIVE YOU WITHOUT A DOUBT

CHORUS:
Life is Hard / Life Ain't Fair
Life gets harder when you're half-way there
Life gets harder when you're half-way, half-way there

WHEN I CRASHED HARD / I CAST NO BLAME
I LET IT ALL OUT / I OWNED THAT PAIN
CUZ LOVE DON'T WAIT / FOR SUNNY DAYS
WATCHING YOUR LIFE / JUST SLIP AWAY

BUT WHEN I GET UP / I'M COMING OVER
I'M A LITTLE BANGED UP / AND NOT QUITE SOBER
I CAN TAKE IT ALL IN / I CAN SPIT IT OUT
(Em) BUT THERE'S (C) ONE THING I CAN TELL YOU (A7) WITHOUT A DOUBT

CHORUS:
Life is Hard / Life Ain't Fair
Life gets harder when you're half-way there
Life gets harder when you're half-way, half-way there

SHORT SOLO

Life is Hard / Life Ain't Fair
Life gets harder when you're half-way there
Life gets harder when you're half-way, half-way there

CODA:
When you're half way there
When you're half way there
When you're half way there
When you're half way there
When you're half way there
When you're half way there
Track Name: The Way We Left Our Hearts
THE WAY WE LEFT OUR HEARTS

MAYBE I MISSED THE BOAT / OR SWORE IN VAIN
BEST I GET DRUNK TO FORGET YOUR NAME
MAYBE YOUR FORBIDDEN FRUIT / AND I’M DAMAGED GOODS
OR MAYBE IT’S ALL LIES MISUNDERSTOOD

CHORUS:
MAYBE IT’S JUST LIKE RAINY DAYS SITTING IN THE DARK
OR MAYBE IT’S THE WAY WE LEFT OUR HEARTS
MAYBE IT’S THE WAY WE LEFT OUR HEARTS

VERSE 2:
MAYBE WE LOST THE PLOT / PROBABLY WASN'T SANE
BUT I HATE ALL THESE MAYBES JUST THE SAME
MAYBE THERE’S NO OTHER WAY / BUT TO STAY APART
MAYBE IT’S A LOVE DAMNED FROM THE START
MAYBE IT’S ALL JUST RAINY DAYS / SITTING IN THE DARK
OR MAYBE IT’S THE WAY WE LEFT OUR HEARTS
MAYBE IT’S THE WAY WE LEFT OUR HEARTS

SOLO

CHORUS:
MAYBE IT’S JUST LIKE RAINY DAYS / SITTING IN THE DARK
OR MAYBE IT’S THE WAY WE LEFT OUR HEARTS
YEAH, MAYBE IT’S THE WAY WE LEFT OUR HEARTS

MAYBE IT’S ALL JUST RAINY DAYS / SITTING IN THE DARK
OR MAYBE IT’S THE WAY WE LEFT OUR HEARTS
MAYBE IT’S THE WAY WE LEFT OUR HEARTS
MAYBE IT’S THE WAY WE LEFT OUR HEARTS
MAYBE IT’S THE WAY WE LEFT OUR HEARTS

Track Name: Weather This Storm
WEATHER THIS STORM

WEATHER THIS STORM, YOU AND I
WEATHER THIS STORM, 'TIL WE DIE
WEATHER THIS STORM, AND ALL THAT WE'VE SEEN
AND ALL WE DARE TO DREAM

WE'VE LIVED ON THRU THICK AND THIN
TOO MANY TIMES IT WAS SINK OR SWIM
SO MANY WRONGS SO FEW RIGHTS
AND ALL THOSE TEARS AND SENSELESS NIGHTS

WEATHER THIS STORM, YOU AND I
WEATHER THIS STORM, 'TIL WE DIE
WEATHER THIS STORM, AND ALL THAT WE'VE SEEN
AND ALL WE DARE TO DREAM

WHEN ALL THAT'S LEFT ARE SAD SONGS
AND HOW DID WE EVEN LAST THIS LONG
LEFT ADRIFT WE'RE LOST AT SEA
IS THAT WORTH THE PRICE FOR BREAKING FREE

WEATHER THIS STORM, YOU AND I
WEATHER THIS STORM, 'TIL WE DIE
WEATHER THIS STORM, AND ALL THAT WE'VE SEEN
AND ALL WE DARE TO DREAM

WHEN WE SAY WE CAN'T GO ON
BUT WE KNOW WE'RE BOTH WRONG...

WHEN WE CAN'T SEE THROUGH ALL THE HAZE
ALL SEEMS LOST, OUR DARKEST DAYS
BUT WE PUSH ON TOWARDS THE LIGHT
KNOWING OUR LOVE CAN STEER THINGS RIGHT

WEATHER THIS STORM, YOU AND I
WEATHER THIS STORM, 'TIL THE DAY THAT WE DIE
WEATHER THIS STORM, AND ALL THAT WE'VE SEEN
AND ALL WE DARE TO DREAM

WEATHER THIS STORM
WEATHER THIS STORM
WEATHER THIS STORM
WEATHER THIS STORM

WE CAN SET SAIL

YOUR GIFT IS WHAT I SING
MORE PRECIOUS THAN DIAMOND THINGS
I COULD WRITE VOLUMES ABOUT YOUR FACE
BLANKET ALL THE STARS IN OUTER SPACE

CHORUS:
WE CAN SET SAIL BEFORE DAY LIGHT
LET ALL THOSE STRANGERS
STUMBLE IN THE NIGHT
WE CAN SET SAIL before...

HOLD A BEAT

I COULD GROW YOUR GARDEN ON BARREN LAND
TURN YOUR WORLD AROUND WITH THE WAVE OF MY HAND
I COULD BURN OUR LUST INTO LOVE
SUMMON ALL THE GODS FROM BELOW AND ABOVE

CHORUS:

SOLO

BRIDGE: We can set sail / Yeah, we can set sail...

CHORUS:
WE CAN SET SAIL BEFORE DAY LIGHT
LET ALL THOSE STRANGERS
STUMBLE IN THE NIGHT
WE CAN SET SAIL BEFORE DAYBREAK
LET ALL THE LOSERS STUMBLE IN THE NIGHT
STUMBLE IN THE NIGHT, STUMBLE IN THE NIGHT

SOLO

AND I COULD GROW A GARDEN ON YOUR BARREN LAND

YEAH, HOW DO YOU MEASURE A MAN?
WHO WERE HIS FRIENDS IN THE END?

Track Name: I Got Lost
I Got Lost

Verse 1:
Between the do's-and-the-don'ts
And the might-have-beens
Between the I-hate-you's
And the no-one-wins
Our endless fights / shackle me
These mortal sins / well, they ain't free

I got lost today / I got lost today
I TRY TO WORK / BUT IT DON'T PLAY

I got lost today / in my shades of gray

Verse 2:
Beyond all the colors / Beyond the haze
Beyond this world / Way beyond the grave
Can't sleep / And I don't feel
Run my motor / just to spin my wheels

I got lost today / I got lost today
I GO TO CHURCH / BUT I CAN'T PRAY

I got lost today / in these shades of gray
I got lost today / in these shades of gray

SOLO

I GO TO CHURCH / BUT I CAN'T PRAY

OUTRO:
I got lost today / in these shades of gray
I got lost today / in these shades of gray

I got lost today / beyond the shades of gray
I got lost today / beyond the shades of gray
I got lost today / beyond the shades of gray
I got lost today / beyond the shades of gray
Track Name: I Am Not Willing
I AM NOT WILLING

NEVER DOUBTING
ALWAYS FAITHFULL
SHE’D RETURN

SHE SAID SHE LOVES ME
AND I COULD ALWAYS
COME TO HER

SHE CAN’T IMAGINE
HOW ANOTHER LOVER
CAN MAKE HER TURN

AND I’M SO GRATEFUL THAT I’M STILL WILLING
TO HAVE HER HOME

AND I’M SO GRATEFUL THAT I’M STILL WILLING
TO HAVE HER HOME

(SOLO)

SAID SHE LOVES ME
SHE WON’T FORGET ME
THEN SHE’S GONE

SHE THINKS THAT LATER
WE CAN PICK UP THE PIECES
AND CARRY ON

AND I’D FORGIVE HER
STILL NOT SUSPECTING
SHE COULD BE WRONG

NOW I’M SO GRATEFUL NO LONGER WILLING
TO HAVE HER HOME

NOW I’M SO GRATEFUL NO LONGER WILLING
TO HAVE HER HOME
Track Name: Fly
FLY

I'M GONNA CARRY MY SHAME TO THE SUMMIT
TAKE MY TIME, I'M TIRED OF RUNNIN'
SHOUT IT LOUD FROM THE MOUNTAIN SIDE
AS FAR AND WIDE AS THE HIGHEST CROW FLIES
I MAY NOT CLEAR THIS ATMOSPHERE
MAY NOT SEE, BUT NOW I CAN BREATHE
FLY! FLY!

I'M GONNA HITCH A RIDE ON A SHOOTIN' STAR - FLY!
LEAVE BEHIND ALL MY VANISHING SCARS - FLY!
WON'T LOOK BACK ON WHERE I'VE BEEN - FLY!
I'M ONLY LOOKING FORWARD TO MY FORWARD SPIN - FLY!
REALLY DON'T FEAR THIS ATMOSPHERE
SO RELIEVED I FINALLY CAN BREATHE
FLY! FLY!

SOLO:

I'M GONNA BURN SO BRIGHT IN THE EVENING SKY - FLY!
I'M GONNA CIRCLE THE SUN AND NEVER ASK WHY - FLY!
I WON'T LOOK BACK ON WHERE I'VE BENN - FLY!
I'M ONLY LOOKING FORWARD TO MY FORWARD SPIN - FLY!
REALLY DON'T FEAR MY ATMOSPHERE
FINALLY CAN SEE, AND NOW I CAN BREATHE
FLY! FLY!

REALLY DON'T FEAR MY ATMOSPHERE
FINALLY CAN SEE, AND NOW I CAN BREATHE
FLY! FLY! FLY! FLY!
