1. When The Sun Sleeps                                                  Fearing what he would find inside
I thought you'd come back at least I prayed (so I prayed)               Years took her away
The romance has been dead (the romance is dead, the romance is dead)    A widow she remained
For years (you come back)                                               Holding him deep inside
But I've been too afraid to dig the grave (so I prayed)                 Wishing she too would die
Relief support never came                                               Time favors no one and if we wait
                                                                        We too can fall in love
Memories carry me through the day                                       A second too late
Of when we were kids
And angels came to watch us play                                        4. Never Meant To Break Your Heart
                                                                        Tears run down my face just like the last
Close my eyes, just for tonight                                         No different from yesterday
The sun still sleeps, and when she wakes                                Sick from the mirror
Close my eyes, just for tonight                                         Do these prayers feel sincere
The sun still sleeps, and when she wakes                                The dirt never washes clear
                                                                        You were good, so good
A movie that plays in my mind                                           I grew to love your lies
Remembering you helps me survive                                        Until I put you in the past
Every day a re-run of the next                                          Love was lust until he revealed
I promised to stay by your side                                         The man behind the mask
That all would change, I can't complain                                 Will the scars go away
Another victim of the game                                              In this world I have no place
                                                                        Forgive me Jesus this time I cry
Close my eyes, just for tonight                                         I rip my heart out to give to you
The sun still sleeps, and when she wakes                                Alone it never did me any good
Close my eyes, just for tonight                                         Hold me close, wash my mind
The sun still sleeps, and when she wakes                                Destroy the me that lives inside

Maybe love will find us again                                           5. The Changing Of Times
For there is always tomorrow                                            Never expected it to arrive so soon
Sincerely till the end                                                  But as the night drifted on
Close my eyes just for tonight                                          It came time to say goodbye
The sun still sleeps and when she wakes,                                Turning your back and walking away
Close my eyes just for tonight                                          This cold winter morning is all that remains
The sun still sleeps and when she wakes                                 Why couldn't you tell me to my face
                                                                        Instead of hiding until I lost faith
Close my eyes, just for tonight                                         A heart gets broken as a life gets set free
The sun still sleeps, and when she wakes                                And all I asked was love me
Close my eyes, just for tonight                                         Years passed, seasons changed and I waited
The sun still sleeps, and when she wakes                                (hate time to say goodbye, hate time)
                                                                        Soon after was the pain
You'll be a memory (be a memory)                                        That would never reach you
You'll be a memory (be a memory)                                        You've gotten over me
You'll be a memory (be a memory)                                        But it seems I'll never get over you
You'll be a memory, memory, memory, memory.                             On me I place this blame
2. Letting Go Of Tonight                                                Praying heaven will open wide
Never forgot the time you made me feel alive                            And hold you tight
When death was on my mind                                               As for me, I'll be alright
Or when you held onto me                                                This impact you would have
When the world let me fall behind                                       The songs I'd write
You were love to me rather than just a word                             Dreams or you changing your mind
A friend was all you were                                               Anything to pass the time
And it changed my heart                                                 But for now
Stood next to me through the storm                                      I hope you can hear me as I cry
Felt the wounds and kept me warm                                        I love you and goodbye
Something I had never seen before
And I thank you                                                         6. Angel Below
                                                                        You took me over the edge
3. A Message For Adrienne                                               And left me there to fall by myself
I tried so hard to be her day                                           The word love meant nothing to you
But the night has already taken me away                                 I was taken in with your lies
Shedding dreams under the maple tree                                    And you knew I was too weak to leave
Where I carved your name                                                But you were wrong
Nothing left, not even time                                             You mean nothing to me now
Straight reads the line                                                 Every time you think of me
His life had reached the end                                            I hope your heart dies
Wanting only to be loved by adrienne                                    I have found my true love
Letters explained his grief                                             And you now burn beneath my feet
But she would never read                                                You'll pay for everything you've done
His wrists would bleed                                                  If you could die
But she would never see                                                 I'd be the one with the gun
So he took his life at the age of 23                                    From this day on
And she had always loved him                                            I'll write the songs you hate
Be he would never know                                                  And pray the prayers that drive you away
For she covered her love                                                It's time to let the world know how
Like stars cover the sky                                                You tried to ruin my life
Up burn my thoughts of him                  10. 814 Stops Today
The virus leaves me                         Make this moment last like the deepest sleep you never wanted to leave

7. The Best Of Me
In my mind you never left
Falling wasn't true
I had faith you flew past the sky
Straight through the night
And the sun reflects the night
Carrying the very same thing
In your heart that saved me
But maybe you've stopped listening
Falling on my selfish ways
It takes faith to see
So close your eyes and search
Deeper than just memories
I never stopped believing in you and me
Your leaving never changed things
I've been here for too long
To just walk away

8. Short Of Daybreak
Another year has gone by
Time just took it away
Friends have changed
Clear skies watched over us
But we've had our share of rain
Romance still sits untouched
By the water she waits patiently
Hoping I'll take her home someday
To think I lost her
That my dreams were her only place
But for her I've learned to wait
A smile remains on my face knowing
God hold her at night
Letting her know I'm on my way
So I'll hold my head high
For love may be a day
I can't say
But tomorrow awaits
Bringing me closer to you

9. Alone In December
You always amazed me
But thats the past
I kept silent and it rained for days
My inside were drenched
But I guess that's the part of growing up
I never wanted to learn
And I grew into the man
That you never knew
But I wouldn't be this way
If it wasn't for you
100 thank you's
It this is love
Fairy tales never came true
Judies are black in full bloom
And I died in the womb
Take it back, all that's gone
It's all still there like you left it
December stayed the same
Nothing ever changed but you
Every little dream covered in dents
Love can't fly tonight
Couples will rest, I'll be sleepless
So cry yourself to sleep
This is about broken hearts
This is about me
Bending again for nothing
I'd run to you but pain awaits
I'm coming home
But I'll be late
No deeper than imagination can be
Sight with nothing to see
What's faith if I can't believe
It's everything
A cure, but I make it a disease

God take me because I hate me
