Track Name: The Greatest Heights
barely even by a breath
i'm flowing with the tide
capable of death as death
i cry and cry and cry
in the darkness
such emotion
echoes through the night

the depths to which i sink
so that to reach
the greatest heights i might
the storm to which i cling
so that to see
me safely through the night

shaken from the deepest sleep
i open up my eyes
weary from the great retreat
i sigh and sigh and sigh
like a shadow
turning softly
in the darkest night
Track Name: Hold Me Close
how long do i wait
to get you closer?
do you think that i have got
forever? (and a day)
for all of this i didn't ask
(so what am i to do?)
and i try so hard to understand
(you're all alone)

hold me close and don't let go
i'm drowning slowly
draw me into you again
and breathe right through me
hold me close and don't let go
i'm drowning slowly
draw me into you again
and breathe right through me

do i don the cloak
of the repenter?
or do i feel the pull back to
the center (of the open?)
for all of this i didn't ask
(so what am i to do?)
and i try so hard to understand
(you're all alone)
Track Name: Lift Me Up
one night i looked into the stars
across the ocean
and you were looking back at me
our distance woven

one day i saw you from afar
you drew me nearer
and love when looking through your eyes
was never clearer

so lift me up lift me up
lift me up into the highest heaven
show me all the things i cant remember
then send me down send me down
send me down into the deepest ocean
let me keep this memory here forever

one love is all we have to give
to one another
and now you've given it to me
it's like no other
Track Name: Solitude
this is where i go when i am lonely
and nothing else around can see me through
for all the endless waiting
and all the hesitating
will everything come down to you?

no i've never felt so frightened
or so cold as i did on the day
when i thought that i had lost you
and my solitude faded away
faded away...

this is where i go when you are angry
and when i am afraid of what you'll do
for all the endless waiting
and all the hesitating
will everything come down to you?
Track Name: Slowly
you're above the water
when i have drown
you're about the loudest noise
when i can't even make a sound

slowly it falls away
takes me to another time
to another place
slowly it falls away
takes me to another time
to another place

you are like a candle
when i am dark
you are held in unison
when i begin to come apart
Track Name: Lightning
something's coming over me i feel it
it's like the dawning of the day
i just can't put my finger on it lately
but nothing else can make me feel this way

i look into your eyes
and i fall so deeply baby
you look into my heart
and you see it screaming loud
i look into your soul
and find a perfect song
that no one understands
and i quietly surrender to the sound
and then...

your love strikes me like lightning
and it electrifies my soul
i feel my heartbeat quick and rising
and i'm beside myself
i'm losing all control

if i could i'd give you all of heaven
and for me i know you'd do the same
i just want you to understand completely
my love is gonna shower you like rain
Track Name: Patience Waiting
i've got to get away from here
just want to be alone
so i can hide my tears
please try to make me understand
that i have got it here
that it's all in my hands

and in the stillness of it all
will there be anyone with
patience waiting?

i know it won't be long
i know it can't be far
till it will all break down
till it will come apart

i watch with westward looking eyes
through burning atmosphere
into the evening skies
they're bending differently tonight
confused with what they've seen
a world that wasn't right

and in the stillness of it all
will there be anyone with
patience waiting?
Track Name: The Window
a heart full of love
is there before you
it's there inside of you
and eyes filled with hope
are all around you
looking after you

but now they've gone away
and you don't know where to go to
or what to say anymore

i'm here if you need to come home
i'll wait by the window for you
i'm here if you're feeling alone
and there's nothing out there

a night filled with dreams
will fall upon you
it will surround you
the lights on the street
are shining on you
they light the way for you

but now they've gone away
and you don't know where to go to
or what to say anymore

i'm here if you need to come home
i'll wait by the window for you
i'm here if you're feeling alone
and there's nothing out there
(i'll never say goodbye to you,
voices calling, tears are falling,
don't you ever leave me darling)
Track Name: The Thousand Yesterdays
i found a miracle
i found what i was searching for
i heard the words that set me free
you are the miracle
you are what i was searching for
you said the words that set me free

this will be the dawning of hereafter
i'll forget the thousand yesterdays
whispering to me i hear the answer
i'll forget the thousand yesterdays

i found a great escape
i found what i was hoping for
i felt a light shine down on me
you are the great escape
you are what i was hoping for
you shine a light down onto me

there must be something
got to be something
or else we'd never get this far
must be something
got to be something
Track Name: Air
cool november twilight in the air
the moon has cast a shadow everywhere
there's an echo on the street tonight
while i'm walking on my own
just the footfalls of my feet tonight

and you're miles away from home
but the air you breathe is the air i breathe
so lonesome on your own
but the air you breathe is the air i breathe
and you're miles away from home
but the air you breathe is the air i breathe
so lonesome on your own
but the air you breathe is the air i breathe

there's a quiet whisper in the air
and up above the stars shine everywhere
there's an angel on the street tonight
walking with me all alone
nothing short of beautiful tonight
