01. Watching From A Distance

Sometimes when I watch you
You seem like the same person that I once knew
And watch from a distance
But never able to do more than I ever would
Looking at you
I find again I am starving in your mystery
So far away and some kind of helplessness

And then I remember
That I know you love me, I know you do

Sometimes when I
I listen to your fearless voice, it's the voice I once heard
I want to know you
And understand you more than I fear I do
To keep the wonder
The moment you seem like a stranger to my heart and me
And all I want
In an instant I see you perfected again
Though you'd never change
Please remember when you ever think of me


02. Footprints

I am not feeling the green burning flame,
As I gaze back along footprints you have made.

And I am not dreaming of more than you have shown.
You are not a foundation,
You are not a stone.

But I'm afraid of the way that I'm feeling;
Afraid of this new understanding now;
Afraid for the beauty within me,
And that which I hold within my hand.
And this is the ultimate secret,
That many before me have ever known.
So capture me while I am weakest;
I want to know,
I want to know.

Here I am wide open, surrendering to your side;
I have laid down my armour,
I have no sword at my side.
I leave behind me the ruins of the fortress I swore to defend;
I leave behind me foundations;
I'll leave you a man I'll need you to mend.
And through all the battles around me
I never believed I would fight.
Yet here I stand, a broken soldier,
Shivering and naked, in your winter light.


03. Bridges

In the darkness I unravel
New truths I have suffered
For so long to embrace
They will change me from here on
But I can't share it with anyone
I wish you were here with me tonight

When I am not alone
I sever silent moments
Building bridges with meaningless words
And only feel the distance further
Remember being happy in our silence
I wish that you were with me tonight

I don't need a reason, there's nothing to explain
I can't reproach your leaving to justify my pain
But can I really understand
I wish you were here with me tonight

I read over all you wrote me
The words mean so much more these days
They echo in my soul
They sting me like a burn
Can someone feel too much?
I wish you were here with me tonight


04. Faces

I want to be master of my own
Emotions with a fire that fills me
But I don't understand myself and I don't know
I don't know what my heart is anymore

I don't want to be standing in this war
Through pity and responsibility
So come into my life with your violence and pain
'Cause I feel the dance of a love I've never known

Take ahold of my life
Make it into one that I want it to be
Make a whole of my life
Make my faces one that I want you to see

I can't stand to see confusion in your eyes
When I drift away sometimes
Could I ever be more faithless in my life
For all the hope I've found in these days

It's always frightened me
How some things lose their meaning
How some things change direction with the breeze
Don't ask me where I am
I am trying to come home
But I can't keep myself from drifting

Take ahold of my life
Make it into one that I want it to be
Make a whole of my life
Make my faces one that I want you to see

Sometimes it makes me feel
Feelings which I never hoped to find
Sometimes it makes me feel
Like I'm living out of time

Sometimes it makes me feel
Feelings which I never hoped to find
Sometimes it makes me feel
Like I'm living out of time


05. Echoes

I think of mornings we might spend
If I came home to find you there
Both talking freely of ourselves
Or sleeping through the break of day
And so much honesty
That's why I never feel the pain
And in my weakest moments
I often look that way again

I think of evenings we might spend
If you stayed home to find me there
Reaching across our distance
With all the hurt that's in our lives
And if it came to be
I would not understand the pain
And in my darkest moments
I want to feel that way again

And I know that I'm wrong, I know that I'm wrong
Both casting shadows, there's a light that shines on
But when I look into your eyes I know I'll find it there
So I don't understand the pain I thought was never there
And when I see you smile I know there's something stronger yet
Than any dream I ever placed at someone's feet
