Track Name: Fall
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
Track Name: Oh California
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.
Track Name: Ghost
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.
Track Name: Say That You Do
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?
Track Name: You
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.
