Track Name: How To Let Go
The dreams I had when I was young
Were like a race I could never run
I'd stay up through the night to see the sun
But I was wasting time

I took a train to a barren town
Got caught up in feeling down
I kept on waiting for a turnaround
But it never arrived

Now I can tell you just what went wrong
I once thought things were working out
But it didn't last for long

Now I can tell you just why I'm here
Everything I say and do
Is cloaked in doubt and fear

I had a friend who I pushed away
I was in love, she didn't feel the same
Then she left for good and I remained
On the losing side

The past has given so perspective, so...
I understand the things I used to know
Nothing stays the same, but so it goes
I know I still have time

Now I can tell you just what went wrong
I once thought things would never change
That's why I sing these songs

Now I can tell you just why I'm here
Everything I say and do
Is a fight against the fear
Track Name: Everything Fades In Time
I don't have much control over my memories
It seems like they come and go almost as they please
And no matter what I do to try and frame them
The picture's never what it seems

Everything fades in time
Moments that were ours are now only mine
And I can't decide if that makes them worthless or if
I should try to keep them alive

Everything fades given time
Moments that were ours are now only mine
And I just don't know if that makes them worthless or if
I should fight to keep them alive
Track Name: Last Kind Words
It's been a long time since I last saw you
I know I'll never see you again
No matter what's been won or lost
Some things will always remain, so...

Here are my last kind words to you
Take care of yourself in all you do
Don't forget to be honest and true
And let your inner light carry you through

They'll be times when everything feels wrong
When that happens remember this song
If you need the strength to start all over again, then...
Look inside yourself my beautiful friend

And remember. Please remember...
That if the sun gets too bright
Or it's a dark lonely night
I will always be right there with you

Because I love you
