Track Name: Sandcastles
We were out at sea,
just you and me,
didn't know your name.
In the salty air,
we were unaware,
of Nature's game.

And I turned the page,
and I saw your face,
and a new chapter began.
In a different place,
we were castaways,
building castles in the sand.

The ocean breeze,
and the island's trees,
made me understand
that my love was real,
and we both could feel
it here in the sand

And I turned the page,
and I saw your face,
and a new chapter began.
In a different place,
we were castaways,
building castles in the sand.

But no one who
I ever knew,
loved me in this way.

We were taken away
to a different place,
I lost you friend.
Deep down inside
I hope to find
your pretty face again.

As I read along,
your page was gone,
our love came to an end.
The pain inside
came with the tide,
and castles were sand again.
Track Name: She Knows
She knows
She knows
She knows
She knows

So much love that she gives to me.
My heart would break if she set me free.
She's there by my side, every night and day.
I love her so much but cannot say.

She knows
She knows
She knows
She knows

Never felt this feeling, that I'm feeling now.
Wanna find the right way to tell her how.
Why does something so easy seem to be so hard?
I should have told her from the start.

She knows
She knows
She knows
She knows
Track Name: Too Late Now
A black hole sits within his soul.
Life alone can make you feel so cold.

And now he's lost in darkness,
Although the sun is shining down.
He could've been somebody,
But its too late now.
It's too late now.

Light years away from everyone.
No time for friends when you're on the run.

And now he's lost in darkness,
Although the sun is shining down.
He could've been somebody,
But its too late now.
It's too late now.

And now he's lost in darkness,
Although the sun is shining down.
He could've been somebody,
But its too late now.
It's too late now.
Track Name: Brownie
1000 pictures hang upon her wall
Technicolor memories line the hall
Happy scenes shot through a lens
so that one day she can live them all again

Just a sad joke without a laugh
Carries on her faded photographs

1000 tears she must have cried
With the death the army had notified
Waves of sorrow drown her days
All the joys escaped her gaze

Just a sad joke without a laugh
Carries on her faded photographs

Say cheese before you're flown
Then I can see your smiling face.... everyday

1000 miles she walked alone
Feeling there's no place to call her home
The days all melt in a life of woe
She decides it's time to let it all go

Just a sad joke without a laugh
Leaves behind her faded photographs
Track Name: Crazy Over You
How many days has my heart been burning?
Heart been yearning to let it show?
How many times have I tried to tell you?
Tried to let you know
How I feel?
That I'm

Crazy over you
Crazy over you
Crazy over you
I can't stop thinking 'bout you

Crying out to deaf ears.
Feeling you don't wanna hear.
Wishing I could find the strength.
Gaze into my eyes.
Surely you'll find
That I'm

Crazy over you (I'm so crazy over you)
Crazy over you (I love you, I need you)
Crazy over you (Crazy, I'm crazy over you)
I can't stop thinking 'bout you
Track Name: Angel Of Death
You're my angel of death,
You're my life without breath,
You're my everything with nothing there to have.
You're my body with no soul,
You're my bucket with a hole,
Losing everything but still I didn't know.

You're a beautiful struggle,
like the sun shining down on rain.
And when I think of you,
I only get a soothing pain.

You're my angel of death,
You're my life without breath,
You're my everything with nothing there to have.
You're my body with no soul,
You're my bucket with a hole,
Losing everything but still I didn't know.

And when I'd seen you,
I must've been seeing blind.
A lonely fool's treasure,
Such an unforgiving find.

You're my angel of death,
You're my life without breath,
You're my everything with nothing there to have.
You're my body with no soul,
You're my bucket with a hole,
Losing everything but still I didn't know.
Track Name: It's Gotten Dark
Its gotten dark but I can see.
The silver moonlight caresses me.
Time has come and time has passed.
This evening glow will never last.

Midnight sun makes me feel so good.
Makes me feel like nothing else could.
Midnight sun makes me feel so free.

The quiet air a symphony.
The wind plays a gentle melody.
The sky's a ballroom here at night.
The silver sphere makes me feel alright.

Midnight sun makes me feel so good.
Makes me feel like nothing else could.
Midnight sun makes me feel so free.

Midnight sun makes me feel so good.
Makes me feel like nothing else could.
Midnight sun makes me feel so free.
Track Name: Eternally
Is it wrong to say you are my life?
You are the earth and the bluest sky.
With the sun you start a brand new day.
With the rain you wash my pain away.

And if we live among the stars,
would any love shine as bright as ours?
Burning brilliant in the night,
Eternally.
And in a thousand years of love,
I would nevery make you cry,
I would never say goodbye,
Eternally.

And if we live among the stars,
would any love shine as bright as ours?
Burning brilliant in the night,
Eternally.
And in a thousand years of love,
I would nevery make you cry,
I would never say goodbye,
Eternally.

Is it wrong to say you are my air?
Fresh and new and always there.
With I breath, I start to realize,
Without your love, I'd surely die.

And if we live among the stars,
would any love shine as bright as ours?
Burning brilliant in the night,
Eternally.
And in a thousand years of love,
I would nevery make you cry,
I would never say goodbye,
Eternally.
