Track Name: I Wish I Didn't Care
I wish I didn’t care, always trying to be the bright one
I wish I didn’t care, sometimes I just want to be the fool, Play the fool.

I wish I didn’t care bout all the sticks and stones that they throw
And I wish I didn’t care, about the real me that I want to show

Look at me I’m the one I can’t show you the way, coz the world is so wild and a haunted disgrace
You can smile and show them that love is the way,
Then someone might care about today, care about today

I wish I didn’t care bout all the voices in my head,
And I wish I didn’t care, when I asked you to be there
And I wish I didn’t care, that world is hurting and bleeding in a state of disrepair

I wish I didn’t care bout what I saw on my tv
I just imagine I was there, draped in blood of the slaughtered family
Too many of us stop and stare at all the tears and wars and sadness
And that’s what I find the saddest, too many of us just don’t care.
Track Name: Why I Run
Hello darkness my friend
Between time and loneliness I’ll spend
Forever scarred can’t comprehend
So I’ll find the warmth in darkness my friend

Why I run
Before it’s begun
Like the stars fade from the sun
Why I run.

Break my soul and descend
To the depths of darkness from whence I fled
Familiar warmth of this cave will defend
This tattered heart why won’t you mend?

What’s wrong with me, Why can’t I see what you see?
What’s wrong with me, Forever helpless endlessly
What’s wrong with me, Why can’t I see what you see?
What’s wrong with me, why can’t I see?
Track Name: November Rain
Take his hand, you have our heart
Share our love, as you depart
Save for us a golden smile
And shine down from above when they walk down the aisle

I can’t escape November rain, Can’t stand to face this pain again
As dawn fades into night, You’ll guide us with your light
Farewell won’t mend the heart, No goodbye is just as hard
All these tears they fall in vein , When you can escape November rain

Swiftly spread your wings and fly
At home now, with angels in the sky
We’ll meet again in due time
Until then you’re in this heart of mine

He is waiting for you in the glowing fields of grain
Walk with him now
Forever’s waiting for you, life in heaven will remain
Your love you have found
Track Name: My Only Friend
And time will be my only friend
The ticking clock will hold my hand
Forever never felt so long
Now that time is my only friend

Not you its me like a ghost they haunt me
Blind me from your eyes I’m back to my one and lonely

Hope did bring my knees to the ground so slowly
Bleed from these open tombs only time can fill what’s empty

Innocence prevailed but failed me in the end
Time to clear your mind but the clock tower did ring this time
Guilt pushed me in this place
So this is how it feels to fall from Grace
Track Name: Take My Grace
The wind can sweep you up and blow you away
I don’t know where I’m landing
I fear, I’m scared and I’m saddened
That’s this building to define will grow these fears in my mind
Don’t lock me away, because I’ll run I won’t stay
And I don’t care where you draw the line because I know, my currency is time

Grandfather clock my friend can you speed up time
And show me the way I’m supposed to know
And mother nature can you make the worlds align
So I’ll know, if she’ll be mine

The overgrowth and vines have blocked the path ahead but not behind
So you, can fall back into line
The light that guides you is this fear that burns inside
So I don’t know if she’ll be mine

Why won’t you take my Grace and lead me away?
Why won’t you take my Grace and lead me away?
Why won’t you take my Grace and lead me away, away?

You won’t let me go but hide me away from what hurts
I might walk away unless you want to call me as your first
Why won’t you take my Grace and lead me away?
