Track Name: The Shape That I'm in
You could stand in the rain
Or you could walk on in
to the dream of a lifetime in the existence of sin

If I'd known any better
I would have passed you by
but my soul has deceived me
Now I sit and I'm wondering why
I'm the Shape that I'm in

When I walk in the sunshine
When I think of your name
There's a light that still blinds me
There's a light in my mind that remains

As the storm it can anger
so shall it pass
Watch the world as it turns in a circle
And I'm left with no reason to ask
Why I'm the Shape that In
Track Name: Angels & Demons in my Head
There are words unspoken
There are things unsaid
There are angels and demons in my head
There are lies that are true
There truths we deny
I can see all the pain in your eyes

And I won't say that I'll find a way
To explain in an ordinary way
There are demons in my head
Won't you see won't you understand
That this silence is my way of holding out my hand
To you, instead.

If you open your eyes
and you see what remains
Just the rise and the fall of the blood in your veins
You will see through the lies
and all those things that you despise
I can see all the pain in your eyes

And I won't say that I'll find a way
To explain in an ordinary way
There are demons in my head
Won't you see won't you understand
That this silence is my way of holding out my hand
To you, instead.
There are angels and demons in my head
Track Name: If I gave you my Heart
If I gave you my heart
It would soon be over
Right from the start
Its better to be free

I could never leave you
That would break my heart in two
It's better to forget you
At least the way I'm thinking of you
You've got to believe me, believe me when I say this things to ou
It's better this way

If I gave you my heart
It would soon be over
Right from the start
Its better to be free

Walking down a side street
things aren't what they used to be
My imagination?
Or was it in the way you looked at me?
If only I could tell you how you mean the world to me, I know
It's better this way

If I gave you my heart
It would soon be over
Right from the start
Its better to be free

If I gave you my heart
It would soon be over
Right from the start
Its better to be free
Track Name: I'm going nowhere
If I had wings and the will to do it, I'd fly away from you
And if my legs were ever told to do it, I'd run away from you
But there's no way I'm going away
I'm going to stay right here with you
and if you ask, I'm glad to say
I'm going nowhere

It took some time to get my mind around you
now all I want to do
Is take these arms and through them both around you,
That's what I want to do
But there's no way I'm going away
I'm going to stay right here with you
and if you ask, I'm glad to say
I'm going nowhere
I'm going, I'm going nowhere
