Track Name: Take In The Day
I don't know who I've been fighting
Fighting all this time to appear strong
I don't know what I've been saying
Moving air just to make sure my lungs, that they still care

And I'm finding that it's quite hard
To find and love, and play your part

Through the thick and thin
As the world it spins
But the sunset sings
Take in the day and pull through the night

So plant your dreams, start out small
Make it count for someone
Take that and know
You reap what you sow
Just follow the seasons

So tell me where have you been hiding
Hiding just beyond the forest line
Where is it you say you've come from
Showing up with that rehearsed and perfect line, filling the air

And I'm finding that it's quite far
To the line we drew that marked our start

After the rains, the burdens feel brighter
Shedding the pains from yesterday
Gather those times and hold them to fire
Use them as guides through darker days

Share with me your unheard secrets
Secrets that have tried to weigh you down
I promise that my heart won't judge
My lips are sealed, you've got to get it out, and try repair
And I'm guessing you'll grow a scar
But the hurt will go, embrace that mark
Track Name: Moving On
Well I'm sitting here and wondering
where you are and who is on your mind
is it me or not, do I have to worry or give up
ooh, moving on

well there are thoughts they're running through my mind
racing to that finish line
and well, there's no medal there
nothing left but pain to bear
ooh, moving on

Moving on
And some can never say
Moving on
Sometimes it eats away
Moving on
I'll be stronger some day
But not for now, no not today
Ooh, Moving on

You wonder how he ever sleeps
he's just a person like both you and me
may feel weak at times, maybe even tries to cry
ooh, moving on

He's too afraid to lose some pride
always played it on the safer side
you know he'd never bet
gone through life and now he's got regrets
ooh, moving on

Moving on
And some can never say
Moving on
Sometimes it eats away
Moving on
I'll be stronger some day
But not for now, no not today
Ooh, Moving on

There's an empty space that lives with you
Follows you until you finally drop
Close you eyes and see, pull in for that final stop
ooh, moving on
Track Name: Letting In The Shadows
It's been raining all day, The sun barely shined
She's been staring at a memory, She can not shake the lies
Painted in a dark scene, She steps on inside
Beauty in a heartbeat, As she tries to crack a smile

Through those tear-stained eyes, A girl who sacrificed

She's been living with her guard down, letting in the shadows
Loosing all the feeling, walking where the world goes
Started with her kicking, ended with her sinking
Can not lose control - (Heavy as the wind blows)

With not much to say she ventures outside
Knowing that the misery will dry up if she cries
Taking on the unseen, it hugs her too tight
It's looking like she's losing, yet she blossoms through the fight

Through those tear-stained eyes, A girl who sacrificed

She's been living with her guard down, letting in the shadows
Loosing all the feeling, walking where the world goes
Started with her kicking, ended with her sinking
Can not lose control - (Heavy as the wind blows)

Will she finally find her feet, or an embrace that she can love
Sure bad luck has played its part, but she also needs to hear
That she's perfect, beautiful, Yes, so lovely
And there's someone waiting for her

Through those tear-stained eyes, A girl who sacrificed

She's been living with her guard down, letting in the shadows
Loosing all the feeling, walking where the world goes
Started with her kicking, ended with her sinking
Can not lose control - (Heavy as the wind blows)
