Song lyricsEdit

Awake (2005)Edit

  • Will you stay awake for me?
    I don't wanna miss anything
    I don't wanna miss anything
    I will share the air I breathe,
    I'll give you my heart on a string,
    I just don't wanna miss anything
    • Awake
  • Cause I was born to tell you I love you
    And I am torn to do what I have to,
    To make you mine
    Stay with me tonight
    • Your Call
  • Stripped and polished, I am new, I am fresh
    I am feeling so ambitious, you and me, flesh to flesh
    Cause every breath that you will take when you are sitting next to me
    Will bring life into my deepest hopes, what's your fantasy?
    • Your Call
  • And I'm here to sing
    About the things that mattered
    About the things that made us feel alive for oh so long
    About the things that kept you on my side when I was wrong
    • Maybe
  • My tears run down like razorblades and no, I'm not the one to blame: it's you or is it me?
    And all the words we never say come out and now we are all ashamed. And there is no sense
    In playing games, when you've done all you can do
    • It's Not Over
  • Tell me all of your hopes,
    All of your dreams,
    I want to take you there
    • Take Me with You
  • Take me with you
    I will never let you down,
    I will love you now and forever
    • Take Me with You
  • Just don't waste your night before it started
    Make sure I'm worth every single second
    • Let It Roll
  • The way that I feel tonight, so down, so down
    I pray I can swim just so I won't drown
    And the waves that crash over me
    I am gasping for air, take my hand so I can breathe as I write this last song down
    • The Last Song Ever
  • Heart beats slowing
    Pains are growing
    Does she love you? That's worth knowing?
    • The Last Song Ever

A Twist in My Story (2007)Edit

  • Cause today, you walked out of my life
    Cause today, your words felt like a knife
    I'm not living this life
    • Like a Knife
  • These streets are filled with memories
    Both perfect and in pain
    And all I wanna do is love you
    But I'm the only one to blame
    • Like a Knife
  • Stay with me,
    Or watch me bleed
    I need you just to breathe
    • Like a Knife
  • But hold your breath
    Because tonight will be the night that I will fall for you
    Over again, don't make me change my mind
    Or I won't live to see another day, I swear it's true
    Because a girl like you is impossible to find, you're impossible to find
    • Fall for You
  • Suppose we were happy
    Suppose it was true
    And suppose there were cold nights
    But we somehow made it through
    And suppose that I'm nothing without you
    • Suppose
  • So you see, this world doesn't matter to me
    I'd give up all I had just to breathe
    The same air as you till the day that I die
    I can't take my eyes off of you
    • A Twist in My Story
  • I should have known this wasn't real
    And fought it off and fought to feel
    What matters most? Everything
    That you feel while listening to every word that I sing
    I promise you I will bring you home
    I will bring you home
    • Why
  • I'm alive but I'm losing all my drive
    Cause everything we've been through
    And everything about you
    Seemed to be a lie
    A guiltless twisted lie
    It made me learn to hate you
    Or hate myself for letting it pass by
    • Goodbye
