Track Name: Suddenly
Suddenly, you found your way into my life
There you were, looking so beautiful
And I guess it was just that day
But something in my heart clicked in place

I’m holding on til I see your face
I’ll meet you at our hiding place
I wish that I could say
I’m on my way
Oh but tomorrow out sorrow goes away

Early on, I was so oblivious
Then I saw, my eye in yours
I’ve never seen this before
And you knew it too
The feeling was the same
I doubt I’ll ever feel this way again

I’m holding on til I see your face
I’ll meet you at our hiding place
I wish that I could say
I’m on my way
Oh but tomorrow out sorrow goes away

Why can't I let you out,
Why can't I let you out?
I'm fading away before
I'm able to reach the door.
The trap is inside of me,
So why can't i find the key?
Why can't I let you out?
Why can't I let you out?
Track Name: Let Her Fly
She kissed me goodbye and
Left for the city
Boarded the plane
She never looked back
Yet I still try
to picture that city
Again and again
when the sky turns black.
But she'll never come back.

Let her fly, fly away
Let her fly
I’m on my way to find my love
No one’s ever gonna catch me
I’m on my way to find my love
How could I ever let her, let her fly?

Her smile it fades
High in the sky
I sit here alone
and stare at the clouds
I know she's long gone
That don't stop me wishing
she could pick me out
From all the crowds
Turned a life into dust
Can I adjust?

Let her fly, fly away
Let her fly
I’m on my way to find my love
No one’s ever gonna catch me
I’m on my way to find my love
How could I ever let her, let her fly?

Let her fly, never never (x4)

Let her fly, fly away
Let her fly
I’m on my way to find my love
No one’s ever gonna catch me
I’m on my way to find my love
How could I ever let her, let her fly?
Track Name: Pains
N/A
Track Name: Day By Day
The world was grey
until I saw the colors burst from your eyes
And day by day
the world became a canvas by your side

I lost my way
the day I put my head into the sand
And washed away
I woke up in some mysterious land

I wanna try
Learning to fly
Does it feel fine for you,
Living a lie?
How can it be?
Do eyes really see?
The shadow's not you,
you're alive if you want to be

Don't be surprised
A turn in the road's a subtle exercise
And in the dark
We'll see the sunrise on top of your bedroom tonight
Some heaven in
those clouds away, some place I'll never know
Sinks in the sea,
Beneath the trees
Sink, into me too.

I wanna try
Learning to fly
Does it feel fine for you,
Living a lie?
How can it be?
Do eyes really see?
The shadow's not you,
you're alive if you want to be

The world was grey
Until I
saw the colors burst from your eyes
Track Name: Walk Into the Sun
Afternoons
See the sunset and the rising moon
See the night, oh please don't go away
See the sunrise it's another day.
You and me
That's all we need so now let's set us free
From all this misery and wasted hours
You know this world is ours.

Why don't we walk into the sun
We could be laughing just for fun
You know that everything will go
I love you more than you could ever know
I love you more than I could ever show

Everything
you do is evidently like the spring
So eloquently please begin, don't wait
If you hesitate you might be late
Please don't leave
We still can make it if we just believe
That love's no fake you say I'm too naive
Don't hit the brake cause you misconceive

Why don't we walk into the sun
We could be laughing just for fun
You know that everything will go
I love you more than you could ever know
I love you more than I could ever show

Stuck in time
What am I going to find
When the morning comes
Will I hear your hums
There you are
Anywhere would seem to far
We won't burn us out
This is our home now

What I know I'm missing
Can't compare to your kissing
Girl, your lips
Make me feel an eclipse

Why don't we walk into the sun
We could be laughing just for fun
You know that this'll be the end
So glad that I could be your friend

Why don't we walk into the sun
We could be laughing just for fun
You know that everything will go
I love you more than you could ever know
I love you more than i could ever show
I love you more than you could ever know
I love you more than i could ever show
I love you more than you could ever know
Why don't we walk into the sun
Why don't we walk into the sun
Why don't we walk into the sun
Why don't we walk into the sun
Why don't we walk into the sun
Track Name: Pour Vous
Would it be alright if I stood by your side tonight?
Would you step out into the light with me?
(with me)
Tell me why you were stuck in the wheels and vines.
Did you like it when all your life dissolved into pieces you couldn't even recognize
Anymore? (x11)

Fin dans sieclè
Je ne sais pas ce ridiculè
Is there more that I need to say
Pour vous? (Pour vous)
Don't wait till you're on the floor
Always going to where you are
Is it wrong to believe in a lie?
Is there anything left to lose?

Since you've been out on your own it's been you
You against me and yourself but you know,
You and I've been lost for who knows how long
And every direction we take seems so wrong
It's leaving behind what we've had in our hearts
Only to find that it's just the last start

Pour vous
Pour vous
What can I do...
Pour vous?
