I met you while on leave that night A yellow dress and a smile that dropped every man in sight It took every ounce of courage, and maybe a shot or two But by the end of the night - I knew I found my soul in you Oh, kiss me like we’ve no tomorrow Hold me ‘till my veins run dry Love me like the sky’s on fire Oh, baby, stay with me ‘til the morning light See, this war, it’s slowly beat me down It’s crushed my spirit deep into the ground The few friends I have left are not those I once knew The blood and death have made a mess of the minds of this poor crew Oh, kiss me like we’ve no tomorrow Hold me ‘till my veins run dry Love me like the sky’s on fire Oh, baby, stay with me ‘til the morning light The battle rages as we advance Shouts to God to end the pain are screeching through the land All at once. cold steel rips right through my chest Red stained hands fade to black, then to you in that yellow dress Oh, kiss me like we’ve no tomorrow Hold me ‘till my veins run dry Love me like the sky’s on fire Oh, baby, stay with me ‘til the morning light Kiss me cause there’s no tomorrow Hold me as my veins bleed dry Love me now, my sky’s on fire Oh, baby, stay with me ‘til I’ll see the light As the angels lead me home tonight

Falling 04:07
How did this happen How do we make this right Where do we go from here ‘Cause I still think of you at night I think I’m falling for you, falling down Into a place we’re both gonna drown Please stop pulling me, into this sinking hole I can’t find my way out I wish I could tell you I wish I could say it out loud But you wouldn’t say the same To you it’s a game with my heart I think I’m falling for you, falling down Into a place we’re both gonna drown Please stop pulling me, into this sinking hole I can’t find my way out I think I’m falling for you, falling down Into a place we’re both gonna drown Please stop pulling me, and I’ll stop pulling you Then we’ll find our way out

The Axeman 02:50
The axeman awaits, as the sun finds its place And hides away for the night The cool summer breeze hangs itself in the trees And slowly dies out with the light Blow after blow the axe finds it’s home As he drops each tree one by one He hums a sweet tune and enters the next room And keeps at his "holy" work Oooooo….. Ooooo….. He comes to the eighth: the last one that day Strained from a job well done Cleaning his axe, that’s bloodied with sap He leaves with a meal not begun Oooooo….. Ooooo….. “Suffer the children, to come unto me” God whispered to him in his sleep He left next day, caught the 5:19 train With a tale too dark to keep Early the next day the police found the eight Murdered in bed while they slept A family lay dead, sheets covering their heads And not a trace but the axe had been left

In My Dreams 03:24
My soul aches for love it’s never seen The loss of something never had Sits deep in my bones You’ve slipped out of reach Time and time again You’ve come and gone too many times Had you for a breath Ooh… Ooh… I dream of holding you, breathing you, feeling you on me I long for the day of meeting you again Of loving you, but until then See you in my dreams Ooh… Ooh…

Paint me with your wisdom Cover me from head to toe So I could see this coming A mile or two ago You chose follow down this road On your own accord I led us to this dark, dark hole Where you held me once before Oh, don't leave me out on my own Oh, I can't be trusted Blame me for your wrongs As you press this knife into my back Might as well push it deep Before I turn the blade with my attack Our love has made a run One last chance for escape And I will hunt it down now With these traps that I have made Oh, don't leave me out on my own Oh, I can't be trusted Oh, after all that I've done Oh, I can't be trusted Don't leave me; don't leave me here all alone Don't leave me; don't leave me here Oh, don't leave me out on my own Oh, I can't be trusted Oh, after all that I've done

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine You make me happy when skies are grey You'll never know dear, how much I love you So please don't take my sunshine away The other night dear, as I lay sleeping I dreamed I held you in my arms When I awoke dear, I was mistaken And I hung my head and cried I'll always love you and make you happy If you will only say the same But if you leave me to have another You'll regret it all someday You are my sunshine, my only sunshine You make me happy when skies are grey You'll never know dear, how much I love you So please don't take my sunshine away In all my dreams, dear, you seem to leave me When I awake my poor heart pains So when you come back and make me happy I'll forgive you and take the blame You are my sunshine, my only sunshine You make me happy when skies are grey You'll never know dear, how much I love you So please don't take my sunshine away Please don't take my sunshine away Please don't take my sunshine away...
