02. Leaving It Behind

Tonight, let go
Let go of everything inside
'Cause I said so
We'll make everything inside alright

'Cause I am leaving it behind
Stop feeling dead inside tonight
'Cause I'm leaving it behind
Stop feeling satisfied inside

The lies, they know
They know every little thing inside
But I said no
And I'll make everything inside alright

'Cause I am leaving it behind
Stop feeling dead inside tonight
'Cause I'm leaving it behind
Stop feeling satisfied inside

Tonight, let go
Let go of everything inside
'Cause I said so
We'll make everything inside alright

'Cause I am leaving it behind
Stop feeling dead inside tonight
'Cause I'm leaving it behind
Stop feeling satisfied inside

03. Endless Ways

Hold on, hold on for dear life
And run, and run all night
For you are loved in endless ways
Stay with me, please believe
I can be your memory

My world will never be the same
And my heart is never going to regret
For you are loved in endless ways
Are loved in endless ways

Hold on, hold on for dear life
And run, and run all night
For you are loved in endless ways
Are loved in endless ways

There's no way of knowing
What could be waiting
There's no way of knowing
The dream I'm creating
There's no way of knowing
The dream I'm creating

The dream I'm creating
The dream I'm creating
The dream I'm creating
The dream I'm creating
The dream I'm creating
The dream I'm creating

The dream I'm creating
The dream I'm creating
The dream I'm creating
The dream I'm creating

04. The Optimist

Drive at night, in the slow lane
Rabbit in the headlights, run away, run away
The great escape in the slow lane
Before it's too late to run away, run away

The life we left behind
Sleeping all our lives
The life we left behind
Dreaming all our life

We ride on hearts
Design our world
Let go of you and I
Run for our lives
Don't look behind

05. San Francisco

[Instrumental]

06. Springfield

How did I get here?
I don't belong here

How did I get here?
I don't belong here

07. Ghosts

You, saw you
Yes you, saw you

Trick of the light
Stop for the night
Tired and confused

Saw you, saw you

Slow down, slow down
Leave, slow down

Trick of the light
Stop for the night
Tired and confused
Reminded of you
Trick of the light
Stop for the night
Tired and confused

Saw you
Saw you
Saw you
Saw you

08. Can't Let Go

On and on
On and on
On and on
I can't let go
On and on
I can't let go

If you are not there
I'm coming down this road again
If you I love
Then where are you?
I'm coming down, down again

'Cause I can't let go
On and on
I can't let go
On and on

If you are not there
I'm coming down this road again
If you I love
Then where are you?
I'm coming down, down again
If you I love
Then where are you?
There's something wrong, wrong again

Oh, I can't let go
On and on
I just can't let go
On and on

If you are not there
I'm coming down this road again
If you I love
Then where are you?
I'm coming down, down again
If you I love
Then where are you?
I'm coming down this road again

09. Close Your Eyes

Close your eyes
Close your eyes
Sleep tonight

Sleep tonight
And dream on
Just dream on
For the dark roads
For the dark roads
For you and I
Yes you and I
Which way to go
Which way to go

All that you need is inside
And all that you need is inside
And what do you see when you turn on the lights?

It's okay, it's okay
It's just a dream
Go back to sleep

10. Wildfires

Wildfires
Wildfires
Wildfires
Wildfires

The iron sky
The iron sky
Who am I?
Who am I?

Wildfires
Wildfires
Wildfires
Wildfires

The iron sky
The iron sky
Who am I?
Who am I?

It's too late
It's too late
It's too late
Too late
Too late
Too late
Too late
Too late

Too late
Too late
Too late
Too late

11. Back To The Start

They don't understand
They don't understand
They don't understand
They don't understand

And all I need
Is you
Just all I need
Is you

They don't understand
'Cause they don't talk for me
There ain't no master plan
I came in to make peace
The more we're made to suffer
The more we're made to care
And all the time in the world
Gonna wish you 'til it hurts
'Cause they don't understand

And all I need is you
But you don't know it's true
And all I need is you
You don't know it's true

It's impossible
Unbelievable
Do you see it now?
Do you see it now?
And our lives comin' back to the start

Back to the start
