    Before You Say Goodbye

    I see you moving toward the door

    I see that distant look in your eyes

    I ask if you’d like any more

    Your answer doesn’t come as a surprise

     

    Distraction, conversation

    Now the time has gone and it’s too late

    I wait for your reaction

    Sit and watch the action on my plate

     

    Kiss my lips, take my hand

    Put your battered arms around me and hold tight

    Have another glass of wine and close your eyes

    And as long as we’re here

    Why not just count all the stars up in the sky

    That should keep you here before you say goodbye

     

    I’m not a lunatic tonight

    I made myself that promise last time

    But I won’t give up without a fight

    Refusal to move off this one line

     

    What is this hyperactive

    Too distractive to believe the truth

    Instead I’m just reactive

    Getting late to blame it on my youth

     

    Kiss my lips, take my hand

    Put your battered arms around me and hold tight

    Have another glass of wine and close your eyes

    And as long as we’re here

    Why not just count all the stars up in the sky

    That should keep you here before you say goodbye

    Leaving Here Tomorrow

    Well I’m sitting at the table   

    Trying to write down all my thoughts

    And I know that I think too much

    It’s one of my many faults

    But I can’t resist temptation

    For the things I can’t control

    If I ask you to release me

    What is there left to know

     

    I do believe

    I’m leaving here tomorrow

    No turning back

    I’ve seen this place too many times before

    I close my eyes

    Too blind to see the doorway

    But I’ll sacrifice these feelings for a chance at freedom

     

    It’s a tempting conversation

    It’s a beautiful refrain

    And I know the night is falling

    And I think I hear the rain

    So I’ll let it go this evening

    I’ll surrender to the night

    And when I see the sunrise

    I won’t put up a fight

     

    I do believe

    I’m leaving here tomorrow

    No turning back

    I’ve seen this place too many times before

    I close my eyes

    Too blind to see the doorway

    But I’ll sacrifice these feelings for a chance at freedom

     

    You come to me

    But how can I make you see that

     

    I do believe

    I’m leaving here tomorrow

    No turning back

    I’ve seen this place too many times before

    I close my eyes

    Too blind to see the doorway

    But I’ll sacrifice these feelings for a chance at freedom

    Leave The Light On

    Leave the light on here

    Leave it to me

    Let the dreamer dream

    But somehow the angel here is not the girl she seems

    Take away my hope

    Leave me to wander through the desert

    Leave the light on here

    Leave it to me

     

    Lost like a dream

    When the morning comes around

    I know you’d never believe it

    Don’t let me leave

    ‘Cause I may not come back home

    But you, you take it or leave it

     

    Leave the light on here

    Leave it to me

    Let the dreamer dream

    But somehow the angel here is not the girl she seems

    Take away my hope

    Leave me to wander through the desert

    Leave the light on here

    Leave it to me

     

    Time for the tears

    Has long since gone away

    You know you’ll never find me there

    Go look away

    If that’s what you’d rather do

    I won’t try to make you care

     

    Leave the light on here

    Leave it to me

    Let the dreamer dream

    But somehow the angel here is not the girl she seems

    Take away my hope

     

    Leave me to wander through the desert

    Leave the light on here

    Leave it to me

     

    There will be

    There will be

    No turning back

    Don’t test me

    Don’t test me

    I won’t take that road anymore

     

    Leave the light on here

    Leave it to me

    Let the dreamer dream

    But somehow the angel here is not the girl she seems

    Take away my hope

    Leave me to wander through the desert

    Leave the light on here

    Leave it to me

    Lullaby

    Why are you looking at me that way

    What are you seeing inside

    ‘Cause there’s nothing, nothing, nothing behind these eyes

    Something about this is bothering me

    Something about the way that you’re breathing

    Don’t you believe that there’s nothing to see

    Nothing of interest in here

     

    I will sing a lullaby

    Hoping you will close your eyes

    And you’ll stop trying to find in me

    All the answers you want to see

    Won’t you let me free

     

    Don’t try to tell me you know the score

    You let all your demons go free

    You know nothing, nothing, nothing at all about me

    You haven’t looked to the left or the right

    You have a smile of anticipation

    But I haven’t got any strength left to fight

    And so I will rock you to sleep

     

    I will sing a lullaby

    Hoping you will close your eyes

    And you’ll stop trying to find in me

    All the answers you want to see

    Pull this veil across your eyes

    Keep you warm and hypnotized

    And try to make you forget

    All the answers you want to get

    Won’t you let me free

     

    Lay your head down

    Close your weary eyes

    Breathe in, breathe out

    That’s right, no more talking

    Hush now, OK

    I’ll just sit beside you

    And when you wake

    I’ll be gone

     

    I will sing a lullaby

    Hoping you will close your eyes

    And you’ll stop trying to find in me

    All the answers you want to see

    Pull this veil across your eyes

    Keep you warm and hypnotized

    And try to make you forget

    All the answers you want to get

    Won’t you let me free
