Track Name: Chance On The Wind
"Chance On The Wind"

Thinking about who you're meant to be
Tired of fulfilling someone else's dreams
Though the fear of failure consumes you so
If you don't try, you'll never know

You'll never know...

You say the words they want to hear
Put your plans off for yet another year
But how much longer can you put on this show?
'Cause if you don't try, you'll never know

No, you'll never know...

They'll say anything to try to deter you
Convince you to do what they want you to
But they can only push you as far as you'll let them
And if you don't try, you'll never know

Now is the time to be making
The most of your life make it everything
Time to take that chance, don't you let it go
'Cause if you don't try, you'll never know

They'll say anything to try to deter you
Convince you to do what they want you to
But they can only push you as far as you'll let them
And if you don't try, you'll never know

No, you'll never know...

Take a chance on the wind they say
Nothing risked is nothing gained
Take a chance on the wind they say
Nothing risked is nothing gained

And you'll never know...
Track Name: She's Like
"She's Like"

She's like a windowpane
Easy to see through she fragile and often open
And she tries to hide her shame
But disguising her surface won't keep her from being broken

'Cause there's no decorative coverings
No beautiful etching or staining
That'll keep her glass from weathering
Inner strength can only come with proper tempering

And she's like a candle's flame
Shining so brightly requiring the room to embrace her
But a candle's light only remains
Burning until the wax eventually engulfs her

And she's like a slab of clay
Feeling so dirty she hopes to be washed away
Resistant to the potter's hands she crumbles and breaks
Wondering if her stubbornness was her biggest mistake

And when we're broken, can we be fused together again?
And when we're burnt out, can our light still shine again?
And can we be built up by the potter's hands?
Without them just where do we stand?

Where do we stand?

When we're like that broken windowpane?
When we're like that candle's engulfed flame?
When we're like that crumbled clay?

Do we really have to live that way?
Is that really how we've got to stay?
No, we don't have to live that way
Track Name: Alone
"Alone"

So it goes once again
You tell me what I should do but I'm not giving in
You tell me to calm down and quit worrying
But this time I just don't think that I can

Chorus:

And I know that I do this to myself
And I know you're only trying to help
But you need to know, this is my life not your own
So please know, that I need to deal with this alone

And here we are stuck in this same old fight
And that last thing that I'm going to do is take your advice
So I'll ignore it, 'cause your words just seem wrong
Perhaps now is the time for me to move on

Chorus

So will you give me some space, just let me breathe
What may be right for you, may not be right for me
I can't keep trying to measure up to everyone else
So just sit back try not to react, and let me live this life myself

Chorus
Track Name: Hold Your Anger
"Hold Your Anger"

He left you when you were just a child
No letters, no phone calls or attempts to reconcile
Now he's back and he's asking you
To give him the chance that he never gave you

And you hold your anger...

And she wronged you, now you say it's over
She begs you to forgive her, but you say never
You know she's sorry, in her eyes you see her regret
But why should you be the one to forgive and forget

So you hold your anger...

And now it eats at you, that anger inside
Consumes you, it's taking over your life
It haunts you, it keeps you up at night
But why give it up?
You've earned it
That anger's your right
Track Name: Here With Me
"Here With Me"

Say you'll wait for me
Darling just say that you'll wait for me
And every day for you I'll wait
Yes, every single day 'til you're here with me

These words keep me alive
But can our love survive
Is this how it's got to be
'Til you're here with me

Say you'll wait for me
Darling just say that you'll wait for me
And every day for you I'll wait
Yes, every single day 'til you're here with me

But if these months turn to years
And I'm still waiting here
Can we stand the test of time?
Can I still call you mine?
Track Name: Broken
"Broken"

We are broken
We are broken
We are broken
Can we again be whole?
Can we again be whole?
Track Name: May You Find
"May You Find"

She was your everything
She was your love all encompassing
Oh, how she meant the world to you
But she was taken too soon

And no one can say how you should feel
But when will this pain ever heal?
How long can this last, when will this hurt end?
And can this broken heart ever really mend?

Chorus:

And the pain, it carries on
May you keep strong
And in time, may you find
The strength to try
Your reason why
And in time, may you find

And why did she have to leave this way?
With so much left undone, so much you needed to say?
But know that her life was not taken in vain
Because of her, another's forever changed

Chorus

And may you find, may you find (in your own way)
And may you, may you find (in your own way)
And may you find, may you find (in your own way)
And may you find, may you find the answer
Track Name: Rest
"Rest"

You'll be safe with me
You'll be safe with me
Rest assured you will be
You'll be safe with me
Track Name: I Will Be
"I Will Be"

I will be, I will be
I will be at peace with this life when I leave
And I will be
I will be

And I will be free, I will be free
I will be free from all that's owned me
And I will be free
I will be free

And I still believe, I still believe
I still believe that it's not too late for me
And I still believe
I still believe

I will be, I will be
I will be at peace with this life when I leave
And I will be
I will be
