Track Name: How Long
Do you know, do you even know
how the snow winds its way deep into your soul,
and it freezes your heart till it stops blood flow?

And you lie, even though you look into my eyes.
Even though you found a guy who'd die
for you, you still somehow want more.

How long

I know I seem unstable,
I know I seem unsure,
I know I seem uncertain,
Exactly what am I here for?

How long (can I stay here)?
How long (will you let me stay)?
How long (can I stick around)?
Track Name: Would You
If you would only turn around, you'd see my empty eyes.
If you would only grab my hand, you'd take me by surprise.
And the question is..

If you would only let me back inside where we were before,
I'd pick up all of my laundry I left on the bedroom floor.
So the question is..

If you would only be my net and catch me when I fall,
I'll hold you tight, I'll hold you close, I'll hold you above all.
And the question is..

Would you?
Track Name: Wait
She will wait
for a spark
to reignite
what went dark.

He will fly
far from here.
Taste the sky,
the salty air.

She will wait
for them to
reunite.
Start anew.

If only he'd wait.
Track Name: For Love
I've been along this path too many times to count.
She'll become so much more than I could ever amount.
I've been along this path too many times to count.
And all this time, I told myself I'll find my own way out.

Here stands all I wanted: the moon and the stars above.
I've been bruised and broken, but I'd do it all again for love.

If I've learned one this from this, it's to condition your heart for pain.
They say to remove yourself, remove yourself, and your heart, it will remain.
But if you want to do as I have done, and condition your heart for pain,
then have it stomped, and have it broke, and you won't feel pain again.

Here stands all I wanted: the moon and the stars above.
and I've been bruised and broken, but I'd do it all again for love.
