Don’t look back Don’t regret the past If on this you dwell No, your ship won’t sail And if you look ahead You may fill with dread Quit peering over the fence And embrace the present tense Drowning in a sea of information Frowning on an endless vacation Bedrock and paradox No the desert heat it don’t stop Till the nightfall Sitting in silence I’m less prone to violence Focus your trip And disregard the mileage Listen to the words The words of the birds They speak a universal language That in time can be understood Drowning in a sea of information Frowning on an endless vacation Bedrock and paradox No the desert heat it don’t stop Till the nightfall Drowning Frowning Bedrock and paradox No the desert heat it don’t stop Till the nightfall

The Latter 03:51
Rise, up and on your way Just another day, they say Still, cannot help but feel There’s something yet To be revealed Everybody needs To take a little time From everything we do To satisfy our mind Ease up on yourself Relax into the night Don’t worry about a thing Let it go Give it room to grow We’re alright Really can’t complain Downtown in the rain Don’t matter Between hate and love We choose the latter Tonight We will spend it right Don’t care if I dance till the light Of the Sun Memories made That will stay with us All of our days I can’t wait Celebrate Friends are here It’s all clear Why?

It’s funny how we go on just as believers When this crazy old thing called love goes and leaves us I’ve been waiting on a golden dream to make me feel better But it just seems like there is no way to recover Its funny how we pick our minds just to make reason Because the unexplained must be contained lest it defeat us And I’m sick of wasting time on painful memories We want to move on but can we forget what we’ve seen Leftover to wonder, where’d you go I’m infatuated with the hope that it all will return Feeling lost at these crossroads, for answers I yearn A blink in time, confusion, sublime A loss so sudden it scared our mind Leaving us all alone Waiting to unfold Though I don’t know where you are, I wish you well My corrected perception shines through this cloak and veil Can’t seem to ease or appease my mind, truth un-forgot And all we have left on earth is what we’ve been taught It’s funny how we go on just as believers When the mirror falls and cracks how will we perceive us I’m sick of tormenting myself with all this pain Deep down there is no return simple and plain Leftover to wander, where to go

Calypso 06:28
Once upon a time, in a little town by the ocean I watched reflections of the stars dance off the waves As I sat alone, my mind unhitched Was such a sight, had me transfixed That I almost missed the greatest thing to ever step right into my life But none of this is news to you You’ve all heard this before No chance to regret Drifting from that shore The are things I can’t forget no matter how hard I try I cast my insecurities adrift into the night Don’t you underestimate the weight of a single lie Left to contemplate the view, alone and tired eyed You took me by the hand and sowed our secrets to the land If I had know what I know now I’d surely laugh out loud A fool indeed was me, I drowned amidst your company Swiftly sinking setting sun, why must we always run from love? What I would give to see you face once more To sit aside the sea with whom I adore What I would give to see you face once more To sit aside the sea with whom I adore How did I come to be an adversary How did I come to be an adversary I don’t want to believe that we had it all I don’t want to believe that we had it all We had it all We had it all Never in my life have I witnessed such a sight Took me by surprise obscuring wrong from right Looked into the light, blinded by spite If only I could get a second try

Cherish 05:02
Breathe and unfold Past the point of needing to hold Tight to the wings of distancing dreams Clarity brings new life it seems To reflections of old So release hold, release the soul Take heart in knowing that which was whole Captured like photographs Memories always last No matter what you hear Keep one thing clear You cherish the moment Before its gone Plot the ink To the face of this scripture Emotion easily held In the borders of a picture Connections to another Holding to a lover For a grain in time Though we’re far past the cover Of ever reversing our minds And now it’s gone Still we move on Appreciative of what never felt wrong Loosen the strings that held me so long No matter what you hear Keep one thing clear You cherish the moment Before its gone Cause there was a time When I called you mine I cherish the moment Before its gone I cherish the moment Forever on So who says we’re guaranteed To lives of simplicity Things always change But these memories remain Cause who says we’re guaranteed To pain above everything Things always change But love stays the same
