1. The Return

2. The Face That Never Dies

When I am alone the anguish begins
Opening scars that never heal
Torturing myself with visions of you and wishing that I could be there.

People have told me it's time to move on - how can I move on when I still feel you?
Doorways keep calling me to be free
But I choose to follow my heart.

I try to find refuge in my ancient dreams
I clutch them but I know that they can not be real
Living on memories and hopeless ideals
Stuck in the web of my past
And though I feel that this is wrong, I'm watching the world move sadly by
And though I'd like to move along, I don't want to live the lie.

If somehow you ever change the way you are feeling
Could I take it?
Your flame still flickers in the dark of life.

3. Something Hurts

4. How Can it Happen?

I just can't let it happen
I can't let it fall away
But my heart keeps on saying that there isn't any way
Apprehension overshadows hope of my sole desire
I look at you and ask myself "How can you feel the same as I?"
One day it will be too late forever
As I leave each day behind I'm haunted by words unspoken
I've so much to give, more than you'll ever find
I have to find within myself courage to let you know
And as I dream of all that could happen I let depression take control

I love you.

5. The Strength to Dream

Lately I feel I'm going under,
And sometimes I don't want to see tomorrow.
All I need is to hold the dream, just to touch the dream,
Can it ever happen?
Oh, your true sincerity, your kindness, means so much to me;
But sometimes it feels like nothing is real
except this pain and dark uncertainty.

Lately I've been feeling more like giving it all away;
There's been a black cloud over me
and now I feel the rain.
My dreams never seem to lead me to the open road;
And cracks have slowly begun to show in the bridge from here to my only goal.

In the ebb of my mind I try to climb the tower of strength
What can fill this cold empty void of what I fear will never be?
I find that I follow pathways that lead me nowhere.

The truth is I am chained to my ideals, and I can't change it;
But something in me yearns to win;
I know real love is there to find us.
If I ever stop believing I'll always find the strength to dream.
But for now depression smiles down upon me;
Oh, what I would give to know you.
