Track Name: Kindled
Come inside these cold walls
Break the locks and walk these halls
Start a fire in me once again
Steal my heart, invade my mind
Purge the pain in what you find
Start a fire in me once again

My heart is beating again

Welcome home, love
I've waited, I've waited for you
And you have loved me, too
Welcome home, love
This fire is kindled for you
I burn for you

Wake me up, calm my fears
Tell me love through my tears
Tell me its alright once again
Calm the nerves inside my head
Remind me everything you said
Tell me its alright once again

I don't know what you you've done
Or what part of me you've won
In the end it doesn't matter
I am falling faster
I'm falling faster
Track Name: Like Going Home
And where were you when I needed you most?
When I felt afraid in the unknown
Every night I lie awake
Thinking of all the mistakes I’ve made
I feel like I’m sinking
Like I’m losing my mind
Think of anything to get me through the night

Tonight I feel, I feel alone
I feel afraid, like going home
Like going to bed, like falling asleep
I just want to drown in my dreams

And who are you to tell me how I feel?
And how do I know that this is real?
Speak the words I don’t want to say
You already know them anyway
Track Name: Undone
Don’t wake
It’s not good for you to be
Just a heartbeat away
From losing everything

Coming undone here in my arms
You’re breaking loose, you’re falling apart
Let you go – you know I will never
Coming undone faster
Can’t keep you together

Don’t wait
It’s not good for you to be
All alone tonight
Call and I will find you
Don’t wake, my love
Just lay, my love, and
Sleep away these tears
You will find your dreams
Are so much faster than your fears

Don’t be afraid
It’s not good for you to stay
All alone in your pain
I will stay beside you
Don’t wake, my love
Just lay, my love, and
Sleep away these tears
You will find your dreams
Are so much faster than your fears
Track Name: Say What You Mean
All these thoughts locked deep inside
All these words I try to hide
Of all the looks I gave to you
Some still hide the awful truth
All these pieces on the floor
All the hearts that beat no more
All the things I hid from you
Still cry out this awful truth

Say what you mean

With every word you barely breathed
With every step you took to me
And all the lies that brushed your lips
None were near as bad as this
With every look my heart caved in
With every kiss it started again
Every beat would sing for you
I never thought that I would lose

Say what you mean
Or all the words will never mean a thing
Track Name: War
We march in time to the line
Weapons drawn, we’re out of time
I am the martyr, you are the starter
Peace is gone, try a little harder
What happened to our love, have you seen us?
We are the orphans you have given up

Is this war?
Tell me what we’re fighting for
Is this war?
Can you hear me?
Is your pride too blind to see
This is war

If hope is a lie then we’re on fire
We did it for love, burning desire
We toe the line, fates intertwined
These drums are beating in the great divide

Are you a friend, or just an enemy?
Track Name: Kindled (Reprise)
Welcome home, love
I've waited, I've waited for you
And you have loved me, too
Welcome home, love
This fire is kindled for you
