Track Name: Captured In Colors
Portrait of you still so ever ingrained,
Never has a smile taken my heart so fluttering

Captured in colors reflecting your eyes,
Never thought that you could break me down so easily
Be still my heart, ‘cause the bells are ringing, ringing.
Take my hand and stay, we’ll be together from this day

The tears on your face are forever to stay
Never has a smile taken my heart so viciously

Be still my heart, ‘cause the bells are ringing, ringing
Take my hand and stay, we’ll be together from this day
Track Name: Wild When He Runs
Time to decide what my life is gonna be
And I wish that I could see
Hold to the reins, ‘cause this horse is running free
And where he roams is where he’ll be

Wild when he runs
‘Cause he’s wild since he was young
And he rears under the sun
Faster than wind - looks ahead, not where he’s been
And his mane chases after him
Track Name: The Nothing Waltz
“Anything goes” - that’s what you used to say
But you didn’t know that there would be a day
That I’d bring you down, down, down,
I’d bring you down

Now you’re broken inside and you cannot confide in me
I never knew you too well
And now I can’t return your heart, we’re both getting burned
And I think we should stop at the start

“I think we should go” - that’s what I’d like to say
But we both know we’re too deep to break away
And I’m sinking down, down, down,
I’m sinking down

Now you’re broken inside and you cannot confide in me
I never knew you too well
And now I can’t return your heart, we’re both getting burned
And I think we should stop at the start

Tell me I’m right, don’t leave me in doubt
Leave the past white like we’re just starting out
Track Name: The Something Waltz
The wind is whistling to the tune of winter’s change
And blows the dead leaves all around us
The night whispers secret things it wants to say
And you can hear them if you close your eyes

The sun is set on the horizon
The autumn sky just went to bed
Now wrap up tight ‘cause it’s a cold night
And child when morning comes we’ll go to mourn the dead

My transom fills with darkness even when the sun is high
The shroud is covering my mind
Her eyelids flashed as I covered them with earth
I justify she got what she deserved

The sun is set on the horizon
The autumn sky just went to bed
Now wrap up tight ‘cause it’s a cold night
And child when morning comes we’ll go to mourn the dead

I hear the tremors of her soft vibrating voice
They pull my spirits from their thoughts
The grass is cold and wet as I find a special place
Its morbid beauty no longer rots

The sun is set on the horizon
The autumn sky just went to bed
Now wrap up tight ‘cause it’s a cold night
And child when morning comes we’ll go to mourn the dead

I feel the earth cave in around me
I’m lying broken in her bed
No one in sight and it’s a cold night
I hear the shovel - earth is covering my head
