Island

I've tried all the alleys and the roads 
Something is coming at a cost 
I just can't shake the way you broke me 
Hammered me down to the floor 

Tell me since your long gone how your the only one who found the way 
Through the maze 

Left me standing here 
It isn't right 

You stranded her here , at this private sea 
A cast away 
I'm dead with out you its just a matter of time and it's ok 

No one you see ever found it , 
Held my hand walked the distance 

As I sit here now alone watching the current 

Will it ever bring you back to me ? 

Because there's no way back with out you , 

I've never been here .

City lights

Composition of life extends her arms 
I ask her to talk 
She lights a cigarette , says honey I can't bring him back .... 
There's a hum to the city air it's cold and I'm Empty 
I walk under the lights , they whisper something about the night , I can't hear a word they say 
As I run out of breath I wonder where my home is .
And I write an obituary for the memories in my head , all the words I write never seem to be as great as the smile you left on my heart so I throw it in the trash instead 
I beg the stars to bring you back 
I beg this place I write for you to come home 
As I grieve 
As I walk these streets lost with out you 
There's nothing left I can do 
Nothing left to say

Shadow

Tide comes in , steals the dawn from my broken hands 
The tears stream and their used for your benifit , 
I walk the places we have been , and it corners the thoughts in my head . 

I can't get away . As far as you ran , 
It's midnight and I'm trying to sleep 
 
I'm waiting 
No ones looking back at me . I can't sleep

Snares

There's a broken sidewalk 
I trace the lines carefully , 

Cautious is the lions den 
Pacing back and forth for the lamb 
As he tries to pretend he is a King 
Crowns don't have to try to be made of gold 
As you come up a filthy penny .

Pages

I lay here on stage , 
Audience quiet , I hang my coat 
Toss the piano away . 

I'm alone , in a crowded room 

Remembering yesterday .

Don't

Don't leave me here , I'm in love with an addiction , and I can't imagine this time while your gone , it's defeating me and she's in tears . 

There's a dream in the sky 
And only you could take me their 
Now I'm dancing alone in the night 
Dreaming you will meet me here 

So I wait in the dawn 
Across broken asphalt 
Watching for you to come and save me 

So listen here my love 

Don't leave me here .
