Track Name: Can't Forget You
The time has come my love has drown
In the tears that passed from you to me
Freeze and fall, your heart is a glacier
Coming down the mountain and taking me there with you

I can't forget you
But something keeps taking your memory away
i stood my ground, but the frost it is coming
One last time till I lose you again

I believe the the spark in your eye
Has died over time, yeah the light it has faded
Can't go back 'cause you've already lost me
And my tracks will be washed away by rain
Track Name: Nomad Streams
I'll never know where I'll be tomorrow
But I have no place that I need to go
There's no place for me, no place to be or so it seems
I'm taking my bag and wandering round nomad streams

Traveling along like power lines on the open road
This car is rolling on where I end up God only knows
Tears pouring from my eyes and down my face, next exit please
I'll be getting off and wandering round nomad streams

I'll never know where I'll be tomorrow
But I have no place that I need to go
There's no place for me, no place to be or so it seems
So when I die please bury me in nomad streams
Track Name: Pretenders
They look through our windows
when we think we are alone
staying in our houses
when they think there’s no one home
Call them the pretenders
we’re not safe being on our own

Nobody’s seen them
no one even knows their name
living in the shadows
sleep out in the pouring rain
who are the pretenders
our loss will be their gain

Descend from the heavens
to places that nobody’s seen
moving in the nighttime
unkept and oh so unclean
where are the pretenders
living the teenage dream

Repossess our bodies
take control over our souls
move out of the suburbs
sell our things and go out to skid row
We are the pretenders
and we’re caught in the undertow
Track Name: Take Me Away
Lately I can't find away
To say anything
I misheard you say
This was a big mistake

I knew from the start
We were never really ours
Cracked and broken apart
Swept away beneath the hearth

Drop it all to the floor

Take me away from what I've done
Throw it to the ground and let me run
Slow down I cannot
Make it stop on my own
Track Name: Run Away From Me
I've said more than I could say to you
But the intentions all fell away from the truth
My lies ran down your face
Tears streaming sorrow fall from grace

Moved on and sailed away now I'm
Drifting along the ocean waves to die
Crashed on the shore I wait
For old love to dies and new love to wait

Run away from me
Track Name: The Hare
I'm just sitting here
Waiting for my days to pass
Hoping for someone
I know won't really last
Biding my time on a rock
In a sea of grass
Sitting on pins and needles
And broken glass

But the rabbit
Waits for no one

I may love you
But that's not good enough for me
'Cause what you're selling
I know I can get it for free
There's a million places
I know I'd rather be
Than hanging by a limb
On top your cherry tree
Track Name: Becoming A Memory
I feel like I'm becoming a memory
I feel like I'm turning into a dream
Drifting away in the slipstream
Of the past or so it seems
