Lean On Me 03:37
We started something, we never ------------- We dropped the anker and let the others drift away Now picture on the wall might be all the I have left From Summer nights and fire lights The things my mind collects No, we never could have known All the ways that we would go You gave me something that I couldn't happen my own And if that varying morning sky Turns into storm on our horizons Then I'll put my faith in hurricanes and heavy rains tonight And If you want you can lean on me I'll push you right back with everything we believed and everything changes then changes again This should be saild until we'll back here, my friends Tonight, with brilliants in our eyes We're looking at the moon thinking the distant ain't that wide And if I could you know why I put you up among the stars So the panting on the season I know exactly where you are No, we never could have known All the ways that we would go You gave me something that I couldn't happen my own And if that varying morning sky image: http://static.urx.io/units/web/urx-unit-loader.gif Turns into storm on our horizons Then I'll put my faith in hurricanes and heavy rains tonight And If you want you can lean on me I'll push you right back with everything we believed And everything changes then changes again This should be saild until we'll back here, my friends My friends, we're starting a band No, we're not breaking No, no no see, this ain't the end My friends, no, this ain't the end No, this ain't the end The hardest part of chasing dreams Is that you always have to live 11 years of astray Or at least it's how it seems But if this ocean gets too rough The lighthouse will got us We're going home And If you want you can lean on me I'll push you right back with everything we believed It's all changing This should be sailed until we'll back here, my friends

Lanterns 04:18
She likes Bob Seger and lightning at night, yeah she’s got some problems but hell, so do I. I could see from California those big hazel eyes that got harder to forget every time that I tried. And you know, from three thousand miles away she could never understand what I’m trying to say, that tomorrow’s much too late, but if you ask there’s still a place for you back home. I’ve spent too many years getting boxed in the ears but that porchlight still burns on, and after all those winter nights I tried to stay out of sight, that porchlight still burns on. And like my grandfathers first, I am a travelling man, so I packed up my things, shook my old man’s hand. I may have been scared, I may not have had a plan, I may have given up but I never ever ran. Well I’ve learned to let go, to not hold on so tight. To step back from the fireflies and just enjoy the light. Sometimes the jar gets cloudy, the glass tarnished with spite. Enjoy the lanterns in our lives, our future’s far too bright to let them die. The young man living with regrets in his head becomes the old man who was never able to move ahead. The young man living with regrets in his head becomes the old man forgotten and alone when he’s dead

Now Or Never 03:48
It's always raining in this town The kids they never notice But I think they start to doubt Seems like everybody's born here with a one way ticket out All the hearts they set afire are all dying to be put out And sometimes I think that I feel the same But any other house we'd still put to flame So I'm waiting whoa (I'm waiting whoa) And I'm waiting whoa (And I'm waiting whoa) When these nights start getting cold she'd say One thing I'll never know is how I'll be alone For years we were the town elite The kings the queens of the backstreets Told been here forever We tattooed now or never on our arms And in the dark we made our vows Closed our curtains and took our bows Knowing if we could we would Find a way out And sometimes I think that I feel the same But any other house we'd still put to flame So I'm waiting whoa (I'm waiting whoa) And I'm waiting whoa (And I'm waiting whoa) When these nights start getting cold she'd say One thing I'll never know is how I'll be alone And sometimes I think we all feel the same But any other house we'd still put to flame And I said hey na na na na Hey that's something Hey na na na na yeah better than nothing Hey na na na na hey that's something eh So I'm waiting whoa (I'm waiting whoa) And I'm waiting whoa (And I'm waiting whoa) When these nights start getting cold she'd say One thing I'll never know is how I'll be alone

The northbound trains and the foreign cars, the nights spent out back counting stars dodging trains and blowing in the wind. You said you weren’t afraid to die and without words I asked you “why?”. You said “I could go to hell and wouldn’t care If I’m with you I’ll go anywhere”, but those days are gone, I’ve packed my bags and I’m moving on. Some day love is gonna find me, it might not be today, but some day this love is gonna make its way to me. New England falls can change so fast, the green to red, the trees contrast and summer air gets swept up in the cold north wind. My last days are spent on the beach. I watch the waves roll and retreat and write down the words to get them off my chest. Stuff it in a bottle - hope for the best. I cast it to the sea. “I’m sorry I let silence get the best of me”

City Lights 02:58
Well I’ve got hopes, but that’s all I’ve got and I’m starting to believe that that ain’t worth a lot. Every lesson’s been telling me the same; it’s a hard luck life, jumping puddles in the rain. But I’ve got six strings that will keep me sane and one day, girl you’re gonna know my name. I feel alive tonight, think I might take you for a ride. We’ll glow in the city lights and forget all the troubles in our lives. I’m tired of feeling so stuck at the bottom, my heart’s racing like I’m climbing up a mountainside. I’m trying to get a little something for me, because I can’t do this old routine. Times are hard for dreamers struggling to get a shot, and lately my luck isn’t running too deep but I’ll give it what I’ve got. Lately I’ve been running a little low on sleep, but I promised one day we would run away to the places we dreamed when we were young and had something no one could take away.
