Track Name: River of Time
Dream no wondering why
Live before it passes by
And die a happy person as anyone

Think it's all you can do
Think the world will come true
Think, the world becomes the answer to everything

The river is too hard to loss
As we travel this galaxy
It's you and me to bear the cross of innocence, happiness, melody
Rewriting history only takes a moment before the past is gone
It's gone away, gone away to the future
And everything becomes a pebble in the river of time

Laugh, ha
Love the people you see
And free the borders of your mind

The river is too hard to cross
As we travel this galaxy
It's you and me to bear the loss
And everything becomes a pebble in the river of time

Swim the sea, come with me
Don't worry about a thing, go with the flow

Sing your favorite song
Sing for all to hear
And hear an empty story for everyone

The river is too hard to loss
As we travel this galaxy
It's you and me to bear the cross of innocence, happiness, melody
Rewriting history only takes a moment before the past is gone
It's gone away, gone away to the future
And everything becomes a pebble in the river of time
Track Name: Feeling Anonymous
It's that time of the week when the strong and the weak become one
When everything stops, your fears and souvenirs drop into one

I'm eternally vacillating between the two
I'm ready to make that drive, 3-4-5 and a journey into the unknown

It's that time of the day when our fears fade away into the night
Like the king on the throne, I just want to be alone from it all

I'm trying to figure out the aperture
Now what is it all about, a signature at a time like this?

Feeling anonymous, I'm feeling anon

Beware, beware, beware of the energy
Beware, beware, beware of setting free
Beware of the night

Feeling anonymous, I'm feeling anon
Track Name: Scabs and Sunflowers
We grow as lovers to cultivate our kin
Love uncovers our potential from within
Love is so uneven for those who astray
What you must believe in is loving for today

Let's count our scabs and sunflowers and hope they even out
We count the tabs of hours, and so we seem to doubt
That our scabs and sunflowers will ever be the same, we grow

We grow through and snow
We last the worst has past

We grow together through the rocky soil
We bear the weather as our tears begin to boil
I am a part of you as much as you're a part of me
Let's find our happy endings before we cease to be

Let's count our scabs and sunflowers and hope they even out
We count the tabs of hours, and so we seem to doubt
That our scabs and sunflowers will ever be the same, we grow

Let's count our scabs and sunflowers and hope they even out
We count the tabs of hours, and so we seem to doubt
That our scabs and sunflowers will ever be the same
Track Name: Moonlit Roses
What a night that I thought this would be
What a sight if you stood there with me
You were so young sophomore winter, and the snowflakes left a glinter
Of the hope that you'd dance there with me

Here they are moonlit roses for you
'Neath the stars and the sky so blue
Then she smiles with the moonlit roses
As the night slowly closes
Here they are moonlit roses for you

I just thought that you'd care for some flowers
So you could enjoy them for a couple of hours
I bought them today in a bouquet of love
So please do not stand there avoiding the answer
For life with love is not with the chance
Were it not for us all betraying our lives
Where would we be?

Look at these at these flowers so red
They're for you is the last thing I said
Here they are moonlit roses
As the night slowly closes
Here they are moonlit roses for you

I just thought that you'd care for some flowers
So you could enjoy them for a couple of hours
I bought them today in a bouquet of love
So please do not stand there avoiding the answer
For life with love is not with the chance
Were it not for us all betraying our lives
Where would we be?

Look at these at these flowers so red
They're for you is the last thing I said
Here they are moonlit roses
As she stood in infinite poses
Here they are moonlit roses for you
Track Name: Seven Days (All Because)
Every single time we part, I can feel my heart break a little
You can make me feel despair, maybe hope or somewhere in the middle
Could it be the battles that we faced
The oceans crossed, the measures lost
We found with each embrace?
All because of you

Seven days and here we are, not quite love but not quite time to worry
The past is only where it's been, the time is now, and I'm not in a hurry
Some people rush the tempo of their song
It goes too fast, it fails to last
And I know why it's wrong
All because of you

Seven days and here we are, here we are
Seven days and here we are

Every single time we part, I can feel my heart break a little
Track Name: Face of Innocence
She’s got a face of innocence
I know what’s underneath
A soul so pure and true, I can’t believe it’s you

Been wandering all this time alone in search
For that someone, that someone from my dreams
Out of the corner of my eye I search
For that someone, in hopes she will be there.
I hope I’ll find her waiting there.

She’s got a face of innocence
I know what’s underneath
A soul so pure and true, I can’t believe it’s you

Fatigued and all I have to show for myself
Is a moment of weakness, but so I learn
Another day another face in my mind
But beauty is truth, and truth be so
The search is all I’ve ever known.

I want to know, I need to know
Is there really love out there
Is this a test, or will it comfort me?
It’s so physical, so quizzical but in the end it’s all worthwhile
When you find the one, the missing part of you

She’s got a face of innocence
I know what’s underneath
A soul so pure and true, I can’t believe it’s you
She’s got a mind all of her own
But she shares my every thought
A heart so pure and free, you know that she must be the one
Track Name: Liar
Tell the truth, is it really that important?
Tell a lie, ‘cause nothing really matters anymore, life is such a bore
When you live each day from day to day, lying is the only way

Tell a lie, a cautionary motto
Televise Pinocchio’s gelato of fun, he’s not only one
Who shows it when he’s getting caught
But that’s the war that he has fought
Liar, liar, hey hey

No escaping your fortunes, my friend, don’t know why you ever thought it would change
We are who we are again, so it’s up to you to rearrange it
And sell a fib, of course you did
It’s obvious to me and you, it’s just a silly thing you do

Tell the truth, this sentence is a falsehood
But who cares when all that matters is we should stop at Ailinglaplap
When we go round in 80 days, history is the thing that pays
Right? Liar, liar, hey hey

The truth is cold, the truth is scary, I’d like a bottle of science
When I am old, when I am hairy, there is no way to stop it all
I’ll be just as bad, when I go mad
It’s obvious to you and me, there’s nothing worse than l-i-e

La, la, la, la, la, la di da, it’s not fair
La, la, la, la, la, la di da, I don’t care

Tell the truth, is it really that important?
Tell a lie, ‘cause nothing really matters anymore, life is such a bore
When you live each day from day to day, lying is the only way
Tell a lie, a cautionary motto
Televise Pinocchio’s gelato of fun, he’s not only one
Who shows it when he’s getting caught
But that’s the war that he has fought
Liar, liar, hey hey
Track Name: Seasons of Our Lives
You know that lately it’s dark 10 hours a day
Followed by night coming my way
The winter is here, it’s coming too fast
What an adventure, hope it’ll last
I know, someday the spring will call
Someday the clouds will fall, and I don’t know what I will say

The spring is coming once again
I can feel it your eyes, you look back and tell me I don’t notice
Each day seems the same but different, and so we know
We have to make the most of what we get, and I promise I will

You know if the seasons have endings, then we do as well
The future has limits, so far I can tell
But somehow we divide the year into four
The week into seven, the past into more memories
They only last so long, I hear the summer song
And I don’t know what I will say

The summer’s coming once again
You can hear it in my voice, I look back and tell you I don’t notice
Each day seems the same but different, and so we know
We have to make the most of what we get, and I promise I will

Summertime in the dark, lightning shooting through the air
Is this the end with just a spark, trouble looming everywhere

You know that lately it’s cold, unreasonably so
The sky is different, there’s nowhere to go
When we reach that frontier there’s no turning back
Is it the end, of is there an actual coda
In sweet rubato time, I haven’t found the time
To find the answer but I will

The spring is coming once again, once again
I can feel it your eyes, you look back and tell me I don’t notice
Each day seems the same but different, and so we know
We have to make the most of what we get, and I promise I will
