Away From Me 04:04
I wish I'd been more unaware I could see the guilt on his lips Telling me what had become of this And I know there was something to say What's the use of holding it back When there's nothing left to be asked We had a deal to mend Through away all the time for a moment that's mine I'm not sorry He'll love me when he changes his mind Now there's nothing left in my heart, No feelings I can impart Cause I've been torn apart and blue Go back to what you do Stay away from me, stay away from me Torn apart and blue, go back to what you do Stay away from me, stay away from me No, don't say it's okay I can see it's all in my face, This feeling's not going away And I know there's some comfort in words Try to give me a place in your arms But I can't feel what everyone wants

Winter 04:10
I fell in deep But you were striding on the shallows of the sea Oh my sentiment It's just a part of me that wants to pretend I know who you are There's no use with you when everything's not right So what's the surprise? You'll just hit me with words, then you'll sell me to the night You'll just Take what you want and then you'll let me go Take what you want and then you'll let me go Take what you want and then you'll let me go Cause that's what I deserve I know I couldn't win But I was trying for understanding So goodbye again You killed me once and now you're burying what's been
3.
There was once a place with no hope or mercy On the infamous side of town Where the poets dreamed and the sirens whispered And the sun stayed in after dawn You had left without a right or reason What you couldn't say wouldn't do Troubled minds and all the troubled pieces That go on and on back to you And I wonder where was I before And I feel I can't take anymore Ooh all of this old pain Why does it all feel the same? Oooh all of this old pain I couldn't know us better now Come with me I'd like to be your compass Lead you through the night, escape the day Meet me there with that old time fever Not a care to give or take away
4.
Ways 03:53
You chose the words but I knew you would stay here You leave, you go but still you'll always wait there A troubled soul and more than words could hold you I'm sorry if this time I'm not the one to be free Could you say that it was all enough I broke, I left and I told everyone Was it happenstance now that it's done You won't return each time until I'm gone For what it's worth, I'm so afraid For what it's worth, I could stay but I know There is no way, There is no way All lovers say they'd walk a thousand miles But I can really say that I did try it But you're so far away, I'm tired And I don't see no other way so why? For what it's worth, I'm so afraid For what it's worth, I could stay but I know There is no way Any heart and every word could hold you But I still know that most of all you'd want to Be free
5.
I gave you all but not for nothing And in your eyes there was still something What I wanted was now over for a while and no one tried You're gonna hurt now for a long time And all the guilty thoughts won't be mine You're gonna carry on your shoulders All your life what was mine And so, why don't you tell me why So why don't you tell me why, So why don't you tell me why?
