Track Name: We're Lost Here
now that i've finally found my way outside
the road ends at my feet
even with all the help i've had
i'm lost here
we're lost here

carving. a path of our own
searching. for a sign of where to go
waiting. for our feet to fall in step
Track Name: I'm In Love With a Wolf
as we lie here
i wonder if you'll ever see
the truth behind my eyes
and how much i need you

drowning in this silence
clinging to our lost hope
waiting for something to change

is this all my fault?

i know this isn't the end
but i'm still dreaming
Track Name: City Lights
i've been walking around
down every street
but nothing says home
than those empty nights
nights where i lie in bed
and just stare at the fan

but i'll walk through city lights
and i'll walk, until i reach the bay
and at the waters edge, with the twinkling stars
i wonder why we cannot be

and after all is said and done
(from the tip of your marlboro red)
i know i need you
(i see your smile)
(from replacement)
but its too late for us
(comes a sense of friendship)
i've nothing left to give
(that will last a lifetime)

i'm just so tired
of all this disappointment
and the worst part of it all
was the look in your eyes
