Track Name: Relapse
Every night's a nightmare when you're kept awake by things you'll never change. I'm getting tired of never knowing the answers to the voices in my mind.

And time after time I find the turning point and everything's alright, but it's hard to stay on track when none of us see eye to eye.

You all say that I'm insane but I know just where I'm at, and every time you try to pull me back I hit the ground and I relapse.

It's all becoming clear to me that your words are in my mind. Don't leave me here, I need you here, before I lose it all and I collapse.

And time after time I find the side of me that's trying to get it right, but it's hard to move along when the road is out of sight.

You all say that I'm insane but I know just where I'm at, and every time you try to pull me back I hit the ground and I relapse.

I'm being eaten alive, I can't make a sound. And I need you here to figure this one out 'cause I'm so close this time.

You all say that I'm insane but I know just where I'm at, and every time you try to pull me back I hit the ground and I relapse.
Track Name: Turning Pages
Have you got the guts to take a chance with me? And be the person that you always said you couldn't be? We could find a world where it's okay to dream, and we could conquer everything we've ever feared.

I've found a way to start living outside of my own head, now I'm turning pages to a book I've never read.

Follow the path I lead so you can see everything I see and everything I need. Don't keep me waiting 'cause I'm on my way. We could make a change, just run away with me.

Have you got the guts to tell me anything? 'Cause when we stand so high we speak these words so clearly.

I've found a way to start living outside of my own head, now I'm turning pages to a book I've never read.

Follow the path I lead so you can see everything I see and everything I need. Don't keep me waiting 'cause I'm on my way. We could make a change, just run away with me.
Track Name: Hopes and Fears
I've got these thoughts you see,
I'm starting to find who I wanna be
But everyone around me-
Their eyes are staring me down
and I can't breathe.

The city lights are shining
And these thoughts are burning up inside my mind
And so the rush of blood, it makes me want to run
Run as fast as I can

Give me something to aspire to
'Cause I need it more than I did yesterday
I need someone to inspire me
'Cause these thoughts inside my mind are making me so crazy

When it all built up inside and I thought there was no way out
You would turn to me and say "baby it's all gonna be alright"
And for a while all the nightmares stayed away
But everything is bad again today

Give me something to aspire to
'Cause I need it more than I did yesterday
I need someone to inspire me
'Cause these thoughts inside my mind are making me so crazy

I'm bringing back the hopes and fears I swore you'd never know
But after everything we've battled through we deserve to be here now
Before we met I hadn't reached the bottom yet
And thanks to you I never did
Oh thanks to you

Give me something to aspire to
'Cause I need it more than I did yesterday
I need someone to inspire me
'Cause these thoughts inside my mind are making me so crazy
Track Name: To My Rescue
I walk these streets alone, or at least that's how it seems when there's no one left to rely on except the voices in my head. And I'm slowly sinking underground but I'm way too scared to cry for help, and I don't know what to do so I'll just lay here and wish for you.

Come to my rescue like you've done so many times.

Come to my rescue like you've done so many times, just this one last time be my hero tonight, I'm not ready to say goodbye.

I've walked these streets alone so many times before, but I still feel down when there's no one around to catch me when I fall. And I'm slowly sinking underground but I'm way too scared to cry for help, and I don't know what to do except lay here and wish for you.

Come to my rescue like you've done so many times, just this one last time be my hero tonight, I'm not ready to say goodbye.

I'm sinking underground, Come to my rescue. Come to my rescue like you've done so many times.

Come to my rescue like you've done so many times, just this one last time be my hero tonight, I'm not ready to say goodbye.
Track Name: Simple Things
Don't walk away, I can't keep up with you.
There are so many things I've been wishing I could tell you.
I'm dying to know where your head's been at lately,
'cause I know you're not yourself, and it's killing me.

You were always good at finding beauty in the simple things,
like the raindrops on the windscreen and the bright lights in the city.
Now day by day you're haunted by these thoughts again,
over the last two years you've slowly but surely slipped away.

I remember you telling me everything would be okay.
Now the tables are turned, it's my time to do the same.
I know my words aren't enough to get through to you,
but I wrote this song in hope you'll know it's about you.

You were always good at finding beauty in the simple things,
like the raindrops on the windscreen and the bright lights in the city.
Now day by day you're haunted by these thoughts again,
over the last two years you've slowly but surely slipped away.

The hardest part in all of this is that you'll never want to be saved.
And we're all here with our arms out, just waiting for the day.

The hardest part in all of this, you can't see you're not alone.
You've never been alone. You'll never be alone.

You were always good at finding beauty in the simple things,
like the raindrops on the windscreen and the bright lights in the city.
Now day by day you're haunted by these thoughts again,
over the last two years you've slowly but surely slipped away.
