Track Name: A Part of Me Died
I woke up this morning and I forgot you were gone
I imagined all this time that you were here with me
Forgot all the pain and sorrow I have felt so many years
Forgot about that day and all my wasted tears

When can I see you again?
When can I see you again?

I woke up this morning and I realized you were gone
I remembered your ashes as they were thrown to the ground
I remember that day when a part of me died
I will never let you go no matter how hard I try

When can I see you again?
When can I see you again?

Dedicated to Jon Walsh 1951-1996
Track Name: Pages Yet to Be Written
Another page turns in my life, as I'm left here
Contemplating how the sky can appear so clear then turn gray
As the rain falls down on my face

As the rain falls on my face, a darkness lingers
Haunting memories plague my mind
Vivid pictures of all the past times and all I left behind
I left behind

I'm standing in a crowd, yet I am all alone
Trying to figure out just what went wrong here
As the rain falls down on my face

As the rain falls on my face, a darkness lingers
Haunting memories plague my mind
Vivid pictures of all the past times and all I left behind
I left behind
Track Name: When Time Stood Still
Time stands still in this moment of dissonance and despair.
No one will ever see my hidden pain trapped within.
You are now forever gone.
Given over to death.
I'm left here crying.
The mask I wear, it is fitting.
This fake smile, it gets old.
Living a lie now a burden.
As the winter is cold.
You are now forever gone.
Given over to death.
I'm left here crying.
I'm left crying.
Falling down on my knees, I'm left here crying.
I look for the day when we'll meet again.
You'll wrap your arms around me.
You'll wrap your arms around me.
Track Name: Loneliness Settles In
She can hear the ocean crashing from a crowded city street.
And as she walks her troubled eyes can see through it all, can see through it all.
As loneliness settles in.
She's trapped inside a daydream waiting for someone to rescue her.
But she doesn't realize that she is all alone now.
She's all alone as loneliness settles in.
Track Name: A Loss of Innocence
In the blink of an eye, I watch as my soul dies.
In only a moment, my heart is shattered to nothing.
I have lost everything I am and ever will be forever.
Guilt and anguish consume me.
I could never make this feeling leave.
Tears now my only words.
As silence fills the room.
I have lost everything I am and ever will be forever.
I have lost everything.
Track Name: This Emotion
Here I am confused.
So unsure of where I stand.
Consumed by emptiness.
Sick of being used by this world.
When will it end?
This game I play with you.
When will I stop to pretend and go
Standing on a black line
The misery breaks my heart.
Deep down inside, I know I can't go on living this way.
When will it end?
This game I play with you.
When will I stop to pretend and go follow you?
I have not forgotten your whispering voice
Nor the sweetness of your presence.
