Lyrics

Oblivion

So you're out there with your new friends

You can hear them sing your praise

While I'm threading these dark hours

Through our yesterdays

You're thinking what friends you've gained...

And it's days

Days like this

That I could sleep, to oblivion

Not raise my head to see the pain which has risen

So you talk to talk the hours

You talk them all away

While I'm threading these dark hours

Through our yesterdays

You're thinking of what friends you've gained

And it's days

Days like this 

That I could sleep, to oblivion

Just days, days like this

That I could sleep to oblivion

Not raise my head to see the pain that has risen.

You & Me

 

I thought you'd be standing at my door
Wanting to give it some more
Wishful thinking you'd be there
When all I wanted was, you to care

I am here if you want me
Here, if you'll choose to believe
In a restless world, that there could be
A you and me

I didn't know how you'd feel

When this love for me feels so real

So, I'll wait by your side

This time

I am here if you want me

Here, if you'll choose to believe

In this restless world, that there could be

A you and me

I am here if you want me

Here, if you'll choose to believe

In this restless world, that there could be

A you and me

 

Stay

From the dark

Of night

I can feel

You call out my name

Through the walls

I have laid

 

Is there a way for us

To dig up the feeling

And hold it up to the light

When we get that feeling

That keeps us dreaming

Let’s hold it up to the light

 

Won’t you

Stay with me

Stay the night

Stay with me

Until the morning light

 

Through tears

Tears, sweat and blood

We can share our nights

Until they’re ours

 

Tangled in between

Who we are

And who we long to be

 

Stay with me

Stay the night

Until the morning light

Stay with me

Stay the night

 

Take these hands

Make them feel

Take this heart

And make it real

 

Stay with me

Stay the night

Oh, won't you stay
 

 

Awake
 

I lie awake now

I lie in bed

What’s left inside me now

Is only in my head

 

I wait for morning

I wait for sun

I wait for somebody

To drive me home

 

I feel the rapture

It feels unkind

For all the hurt that you gave me

I’m left to unwind

 

There’s no sense in dreaming

No reason to hide

Why paint an illusion

To give me false pride

 

After all is said and done

After you have loved someone

When the moon wears a halo, too

We’ll be crying hard for you

 

I can’t stand believing

That you’re truly gone

Cause in you was something

I believed in all along

 

After all is said and done

After you have loved someone

When the moon wears a halo, too

We’ll be crying hard for you
