Track Name: Be My Strength, Be My Wings
Be My Strength, Be My Wings

Get me out of here these apartment walls,
are closing in and consuming me
Am I the only one left here alive?
My own apocalypse I close my eyes
A force against my very will to rise
I'm trapped inside this screaming in my head

Be my strength to rise, be my wings to fly
You may be the only one, who can heal my eyes again
Be my solid ground, when doubt is all I've found
You may be the only one, who can lift me up again

I'm lost between my words and what she said
I cannot tell if I'm alive or dead
These notes I write remind me how to feel
I start to wonder if I'll be okay
Will tomorrow be another day?
Or will I wake up even further gone?

Be my strength to rise, be my wings to fly
You may be the only one, who can heal my eyes again
Be my solid ground, when doubt is all I've found
You may be the only one, who can lift me up again
Track Name: January Knows
January Knows

I can't find the words, to say, goodbye
I just walk away, leave tears in the rain, and cold breath in the sky

Frostbite on my toes
January knows
To bring you to your knees
To make you beg and plead

I can't find the breath, to blow away, your untamed memories
You knock at my door, until I fall asleep, it makes your knuckles bleed

Frostbite on my toes
January knows
To bring you to your knees
To make you beg and plead

I can't find the strength, to be, the boy I used to know
Wind pierces my skin, down to the bone, like you will never know

Frostbite on my toes
January knows
To bring you to your knees
To make you beg and plead
Track Name: Help Me Out of Here
Help Me Out of Here


I try to raise my eyes, just for a while
I try to find a reason for a smile
I hope you understand this isn't me
'Cause I can't give you what, you want from me

The further I look back, it's clear to me
But looking forward's dark, too dark to see
Nothing's all I am, and all I feel
I've nothing left inside, for you to steal

I'm lonely but I want, to be alone
I'm freezing but I like, to feel the cold
I'm far away from where I used to be
I pray to find a God that I believe

Please stay a while, even if I say to leave
Maybe you're the one, who can make me re-believe
I'll fake a smile, 'til they start to feel sincere
Maybe you're the one, who can help me out of here

I close my eyes the world, it disappears
I'm suddenly at peace, but lost in fear
You'll never know the truth, behind my eyes
Sometimes it's best we keep, our truths inside

Please stay a while, even if I say to leave
Maybe you're the one, who can make me re-believe
I'll fake a smile, 'til they start to feel sincere
Maybe you're the one, who can help me out of here
Track Name: Don't Paint the Clouds
Don’t Paint the Clouds

Don't waste your tears dear, on a love, that does not deserve them
Don't give your heart away, for it, is worth more than a handout

Don't paint the clouds, they may soon disappear
Don't build your home, on hollow ground dear
Don't take that leap, before you learn to fly
Don't run away, don't leave yourself behind

Don't trust your love in his hands, if you, have yet to fully read them
Don't trust your love in his arms, the fall, is hard when they deceive you

Don't paint the clouds, they may soon disappear
Don't build your home, on hollow ground dear
Don't take that leap, before you learn to fly
Don't run away, don't leave yourself behind
Track Name: Not Scared Anymore
Not Scared Anymore

You never stopped, being beautiful
You're so beautiful to me
Oh, how I've strayed, how I've pushed you away
I was running away, to find me

Now I can see, that I've found just what I need
Looking at my own reflection in your big brown eyes looking back at me
I close my eyes, I'm not scared anymore
Even in the darkest nights, even never seen so clear before

I went away, and I thought that you would too
I turned my head away from a love that was true
Was I in doubt from all I've lost along the way
You're worth the pain if I'm to lose your love some day

I went away, you were tearing up my mind
I was too proud for love, to admit it at the time
A stubborn young man, was convinced to fly away
But my wings were at your house, where I had left them on that day

I walked away, from the one who loved me back
She never asked me to change, she only asked me to stay
I should have known, as she knew right from the start
Now I'm running home to her, anticipate her open arms

I went away, and I thought that you would too
I turned my head away from a love that was true
Was I in doubt from all I've lost along the way
You're worth the pain if I'm to lose your love some day
