In the darkness of my mind, I couldn't see the signs, So maybe it was time, But I didn't want you to leave me. You wouldn't change your mind! Change my mind, Change this time, You wouldn't change your mind! Change my mind. Reach out to the stars, Apollo Beyond where we can go Reach out to the great beyond Lord, make me a stone Make me a stone I wish everything was different After all is done Hold on to the stars Close your eyes and fly But I guess it's all alright, I think I'm doing fine, I guess I'm doing all right without you. Reach out to the stars, Apollo Beyond where we can go Reach out to the great beyond Lord, make me a stone Make me a stone Reach out to the stars, Apollo Beyond where we can go Reach out to the great beyond Lord, make me a stone Make me a stone

Lay your arms down, let's talk a while When we get over running wild When there is time to change And somewhere to start We’ll find out who we are Wipe the records from your basement All the wreckage in your kingdom's past These hearts fell hard and splintered out like glass Never made to be passed around We were crawling on the pavement Trying to feed the hunger as we fast But you'd rather drag yourself through streets of broken glass Than let me help you out Lay your arms down, let's talk a while When we get over running wild When there is time to change And somewhere to start We’ll find out who we are And I knew that I was faithless By the cigarettes that lined her feet And I see right through the temper of her glass invitation tonight Lay your arms down, let's talk a while When we get over running wild When there is time to change And somewhere to start We’ll find out who we are

I want to read you Like a book Like poetry I want to read you In details Little pieces In rhythm In verse I want to keep you Like a prize Like a memory I want to keep you Right here Little pieces In my pocket In a dream I want to leave you Like a fool Like an enemy I want to leave you On fire Little pieces Incendiary Infatuation I want to love you Like a fool Like a friend I want to love you On fire Little pieces Incendiary Infatuation I want to breathe you I want to breathe you I want to breathe you I want

Watching you dreaming, A voyeur in your mind Till I'm over overwhelmed Waiting, believing, Risk it all to love you Till we're inter intertwined You'll love me, you'll love me someday You’re as dazzling as the sun, a hint of you, I’m breathless, now until forever, your taste lingers on. Watching you dreaming, A voyeur in your mind Till I'm over overwhelmed Wanting and needing, Risk it all to love you Till we're inter intertwined You'll love me, you'll love me someday Let me pull you closer, melt into your arms, aiming for forever, I won’t lose! Watching you dreaming, A voyeur in your mind Till I'm over overwhelmed Obsessing, engulfing, Risk it all to love you Till we're inter intertwined You'll love me, you'll love me someday You'll love me, you'll love me someday You'll love me, you'll love me someday

When my garden grew And the weeds broke through You came here like a satellite And bravely looked into this life of mine and sighed Fear and doubt don't wait around Fear and doubt don't wait around to take you And you feel desire Til your heart expires There's nothing left that I can do So better let you try your best to soothe the wound Fear and doubt don't wait around Fear and doubt don't wait around to take you There's an air you bring In the songs you sing That turned the walls around me sheer The ripples in the atmosphere are clean and clear Fear and doubt don't wait around Fear and doubt don't wait around to take you

I would shed all of my skin And turn myself inside out To bring these bones to life with the pulse of your veins So I can prove that I won't let you down So come intoxicate me Show me how you would operate 'Cause I am yours to mold A canvas til you come decorate my head When you arrived I tried to be weightless I tried not to waste your youth Stay with me to rearrange this space All of my world, till every space is new So come intoxicate me Show me how you would operate 'Cause I am yours to mold A canvas til you come decorate my head

I hardly recognize me in the mirror or the street But I know I feel the heat on my skin We got too good at crazy so you left me here alone But I'm better on my own so I gave in Leave when it takes over The city has grown colder You say that you feel older 'Cause you're sober now If Jesus saved your life but you still miss the life you had Then was it really all that bad to enjoy? Music filled your head til there was none left to be heard And the music turned into noise Leave when it takes over The city has grown colder You say that you feel older 'Cause you're sober now Leave when it takes over The city has grown colder You say that you feel older 'Cause you're sober now

Last night was a battlefield Me, girl with a daisy, you, man with a gun. A world with real tragedy Leaving me stunned, Actions bringing peace, But there’s no sweet release. We are not assassins… Return us to the battlefield I can only pay attention Can’t afford the peace. We can’t be saved We must be brave We can’t be saved We must be brave Last night was a battlefield Me, girl with a daisy, you, man with a gun. A world with real tragedy Leaving me stunned, Actions bringing peace, But there’s no sweet release. We are not assassins… Return us to the battlefield I can only pay attention Can’t afford the peace. We can’t be saved We must be brave We can’t be saved We must be brave Your voice is an echo Your warmth upon my skin like Ghosts upon my face. You move like a shadow My heart once safe within your hands… But you’re never coming home. Your face lost in an image, Etched upon my soul. Return us to the battlefield I can only pay attention Can’t afford the peace.

Wait, you don't have to leave Maybe you could stay Afraid, we step into the world Until we get too brave And throw it all away There's nothing to it Clean, you're without a scratch But I know where you've been Greed took you when it left The shape I see you in The tattoo on my skin There's nothing to it If I can't let it go If I can't let it go Your gravity will pull me to my grave Faith, where did I go wrong? Do you see me now? Stained with all your dirty snow That rained upon the vow I built a life around There's nothing to it If I can't let it go If I can't let it go Your gravity will pull me to my grave If I can't let it go If I can't let it go Your gravity will pull me to my grave

When the sun goes down we’ll find relief once again We have suffered long enough from thirst This desert walk held promise but our skin was left with burns And all we found was a kingdom in the dirt So whisper in your lover’s ear everything you wish Wear the stain of your heart on your shirt Every pen holds memories when every word’s a seed Planted in our kingdom in the dirt Villains are on the way with venom, flood, and fire Don’t let them put to waste our precious time An instant can be permanent and days will pass you by Minutes turn to years in one great blur And no one here is guaranteed to see tomorrow come We’re guaranteed a kingdom in the dirt Villains are on the way with venom, flood, and fire Don’t let them put to waste our precious time There’s no other side So seize the breaking light Take a breath while you have got the time And savor every one Villains are on the way with venom, flood, and fire Don’t let them put to waste our precious time
