Track Name: Little Voice
Go back to your home.
Little voice, I hear what you're after.
"Let me into your dreams,
so I can see what you see."
(Our simple reflections.)

Open-eyed. Let your thoughts refine,
and you'll know that we're just strangers.
We're living lies, pretending to be blind,
but we're better. We should know by now.

In our world, we can imagine
that we're sane. We're not indifferent.
We hold our innocence in the palms of our hands.
It's our secret light that we've been burning out.
(We've been spreading lies.)

These tough times break out our desperate lives,
and we know at last, we're just dreamers.
We give and try, but we should have realized
that we're older. We should have learned by now.

We take our chances,
so we can see if we know ourselves.
And our friends turn their heads away,
but we would do it again.
(Again.)
Track Name: Sleepless
I can speak, but humor me and say what I want to hear.
You know the heaviness behind my breath should be ignored.
In the still of lonely night when the after parties die,
my heart keeps longing for the sound of another voice.

I know that I'm not the kid we used to know.
I understand when we talk alone, but you have to go.
It's okay, it's fine with me 'cause I have other friends I've got to see, but in this time of night I'm left thinking
(of you).

Can you throw me a story—some advice I don't need?
In the hope I could still relate with you.
Late, sleepy talks lead to feelings we forgot.
They're only whispers we'll soon again be strangers to.

I know we've had this conversation once before.
It's not quite the same. I've lost my charm, and your voice is sore.
But it's okay, it's fine with me 'cause I have other friends to talk to me, and in this time of night I should be sleeping
(but I'm sleepless).

Be quiet. Everyone's dreaming.
Don't make a noise, or you will wake them.

But press your lips to my ear,
and softly whisper. Tell me that you'll stay here.
Track Name: Cold Season
Our season has come quite early.
The tips of the leaves aren't even wet,
but I feel this winter creeping up my spine.
My heart is frozen, and you're feeling just fine.

Give me back my life.
I can't promise you that things will be alright.
So hear my voice again (make it last),
and cry your eyes out one last time.

And I guess you'll leave again,
but this time without looking back.
I'll tell my mother you're gone for good,
but let your parents know the news.

Rest your head and behave yourself.
We don't know if we'll be here tomorrow.
So I'll try my best to pretend that we're
still friends, but I know these are hollow words.

I'll try to sing the rain away
just like I had learned as a child.
I'm waiting for these days to pass me now,
but I'm just getting there.
I'm just getting there.
Am I'm almost there?
Track Name: End of the Year
I just wanna find someone to sing to.
I just wanna drive around all the time.

I just wanna find someone to sing to.
I just wanna drive around all night with you.

Can such a night last so long?
Track Name: Far as Stars
If we're lost in darkness we can't outrun,
let's try to have some fun while we can.
And if I'm sick, convince me that I'm well,
then we can try to laugh through empty smiles.

We've turned old, but don't tell me you've outgrown
the stories that we used to tell.
Don't be upset. No eloquence can save what's left,
but I'm still holding onto words.

And now, we're as far as stars in the sky.
So let us down, and we'll survive!

We hear these ghosts. They say our lives are sewn
together, but now we'll rip these threads.
So we wait. There will be another day
when we celebrate old times.

And now, we're falling stars in the sky.
So let us down, and we'll collide!
Track Name: Solstice
Into the ocean we'll swim.
I am drowning. I'm on my last breath,
but I told myself, "We'll make it through this,
it's your life." —It's my life.

I won't play dead.
I won't play dead.
I won't play dead.
I won't play dead.

You are the liar. I am the fool.
Whichever makes you feel better in this world.
You cut your hair out. I let mine down.
I won't say the same about our parents now.

Don't feel so sorry for yourself.
You were in such a hurry to grow up, you didn't need no help.

Such a sensitive child, filled with self-doubt.
You can't believe in it! I don't believe in it!

Such a sensitive child!
Such a sensitive child!
Such a sensitive child!
Such a sensitive child! (Such a sensitive child!)
Such a sensitive child! (Such a sensitive child!)
Such a sensitive child! (Such a sensitive child!)
Such a sensitive child!

You haven't been the same.
Don't know why it has to be this way.
So I, I ask myself,
and you should also ask yourself...

...Just where are you running to?
Where are you running to?
Where are you running to?
Where are you running to?

Just where are you running to?
Where are you running to?
Where are you running to?
Where are you running to?
