Fall 03:41
Fall He sees me leaving, he'll never ask me to stay Love an emotion, that only gets in the way Of life, or work...he's the rational kind. Love is the last thing, that would enter his mind. If he were asked he might call me naive Head in the clouds and my heart on my sleeve If he were asked he'd express his dismay Reality never was my forte Chorus: And I'm older now, God knows I'm no wiser I can read the signs, a little better that's all And I've made mistakes, but I know what really matters I can stop myself, if I'm starting to fall. Sometimes my heart feels, so battered and bruised From all the years that I wasted on you Sometimes my heart feels so cruel to be kind And like a clock I just slowly unwind

Oh California You have done me wrong Cherishing a dream that he sold you for a song And all the plastic faces Frozen in a smile Staring at your feet that never walked this mile And all I know is that I love him still Even if it's not to be All I know is that I'll always feel California you have kept secrets from me. Oh California Do you think it's fair That you are in my life though I don't want you there Everything is broken, shattered by degrees As I pick up the pieces for not one but three And all I know is that I love him still Even if it's not to be All I know is that I'll always feel California you have kept secrets from me.

Ghost 03:42
She won't be able, to live with my ghost With my name upon the lips you love the most Like a shadow cast on all that's passed between us you will know She won't be...me. She won't be willing, to lend you the strength To recognise the rope you're hanging yourself with And as the ship goes down and all has drowned in some forsaken sea She won't be...me. I am at your side In your corner you will find me And I can't make you change your mind But love for you will never leave me Never leave me. She won't be able to recognise That the mythology of new is full of lies And the person that you thought you knew can't look you in the eyes She won't be...me.

I knew things were desperate When he left here that day His eyes wouldn't meet mine at all Just please don't be stupid, was all I could say He mumbled "I love you, I'll call." It's OK if you want something more It's OK if you've found someone new It's OK if you no longer love me that way... But don't lie, and say that you do. I knew things were over when I boarded that flight As I closed down my mind for the fall We hadn't been close in a very long time it seemed that just didn't want me at all. It's OK if you want something more It's OK if you've found someone new It's OK if you no longer love me that way... But don't lie, and say that you do. (We're over) Don't say anything (We're over) Don't say anything (We're over) Are we over now?

You 05:00
I'm on the train headed to somewhere Thinking of you That's how I spend most of my time now So it's nothing new And I could just go far away Iffen I got a clue But I figured this too shall pass As these things tend to do I dreamed that we made different choices In our lives And though they seemed wrong at the time In the end they all worked out right And I'm frozen here to the ground Waiting for that faint little sound When my heart tells me that it's true All this time, it could have been you. And I think about speaking my mind now But what would that change? I'd still be here wishing for sunshine While you pray to stop the rain And maybe we'll meet in the middle If the path doesn't change But after all of these years Taking it just seems so strange. I dreamed that we made different choices In our lives And though they seemed wrong at the time In the end they all turned out fine. And I'm frozen here to the ground Waiting for that faint little sound When my heart tells me that it's true All this time, it could have been you.
