(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Verge

I ain't too sure what I believe in
But I believe in what I see
and when I close my eyes
I see my whole life ahead of me
These are our hours (These are our hours)
This is our time (This is our time)
This is our time
These are our hours (These are our hours)
Out on the verge (Out on the verge)
Out on the verge of the rest of our lives (The rest of our lives)

Out on the verge of the rest of our lives tonight
Top of the world and we're dressed to the nines tonight
Edge of the earth and we're touching the sky tonight
Out on the verge of the rest of our lives

These are our hours (These are our hours)
This is our time (This is our time)
These are our hours (These are our hours)
Out on the verge
Out on the verge
Out on the verge of the rest of our lives

Out on the verge of the rest of our lives tonight
Top of the world and we're dressed to the nines tonight
Edge of the earth and we're touching the sky tonight
Out on the verge of the rest of our lives

(For the rest of our lives)

From now on
There's no looking back
Full steam ahead
On this one way track
From this day forward
I will make promise
To be true to myself
And always be honest
For the rest of my life
I will do what's right
I will do what's right
When I step out on the

Out on the verge of the rest of our lives tonight
Top of the world and we're dressed to the nines tonight
Edge of the earth and we're touching the sky tonight
Out on the verge of the rest of our lives (The rest of our lives)

The rest of our lives
Edge of the earth and we're touching the sky tonight
Out on the verge of the rest of our lives

I Found Love

I was so young and reckless
It was all a blur but there you were
And your love left me breathless
When the fairy dust fell over us
Yeah I, I felt like I could fly
Cause I, I found love

So take my hand, and shed a tear
Before I'm gone, it's now or never
I'll hold you close, the end is near
But love goes on, and on forever

It's so dark in my mind
I cross my heart and hope to die
I'm so bad, at goodbyes
I hold my breath, and close my eyes
I don't have a lot left
Oh, how did it end so fast?
I say, with my last breath
It's a perfect day, to float away

When the sparks, flew between us
I saw you glow, and had to know
Where our journey would lead us
Til' the story end, and back again
Yeah I, I felt like I could fly
Cause I, I found love

So lead me home, and lift me up
Above the stars, and even higher
I'm not afraid, because your love
It falls like rain, and burns like fire

It's so dark in my mind
I cross my heart and hope to die
I'm so bad, at goodbyes
I hold my breath, and close my eyes
I don't have a lot left
Oh, how did it end so fast?
I say, with my last breath
It's a perfect day, to float away

I'll love you forever
And you were my dream come true
I say, with my last breath
It's a perfect day, to float away
Yeah I, I felt like I could fly
Cause I, I found love

Thunderstruck

[Owl City:]
I feel you glowing in the dark
When I collapse into your arms
I'm just a stranger in the stars

[Sarah Russell:]
Cause somehow it seems when I am with you
That all of my dreams begin to come true
And carefully you carry me away

[Owl City:]
I've never felt so wide awake
Cause I'm wonder struck
I love how you take my breath away
I'm thunderstruck
To tell you the truth, I'm so afraid
That I'm out of luck
I love how you take my breath away
I'm thunderstruck

[Owl City:]
I chase the phantoms down the hall
I felt the floorboards rise and fall
I lost and never loved at all

[Sarah Russell:]
I find in the days when you're in my dreams
The orchestra plays the prettiest themes
And carefully you carry me away

[Owl City:]
I've never felt so wide awake
Cause I'm wonder struck
I love how you take my breath away
I'm thunderstruck
To tell you the truth, I'm so afraid
That I'm out of luck
I love how you take my breath away
I'm thunderstruck

[Owl City (Sarah Russell):]
Woah, I'm leaving the world behind
(Fulfill my dreams
Oh, and my dreams are shattered)
Woah, I'm over the moon tonight
(Fulfill my dreams
Oh, and my dreams are shattered)
Cause somehow it seems (when I am with you)
That all of my dreams (begin to come true)
And carefully you carry me away

[Sarah Russell (Owl City):]
You take my breathe away
When I'm with you
Fulfill my dreams
And my dreams are shattered
(When I look at you)
My dreams are shattered
(When I look at you)

My Everything

When my hope is lost
and my strength is gone
I run to you and you alone
When I can't get up and I can't go on
I run to you and you alone
'Cause you're my light in the dark
and I sing with all of my heart

Hallelujah
My almighty God divine
Hallelujah
I am yours and you are mine
This is all I know I will say
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
You're my everything

When I'm plagued with pain
and filled with fear
I run to you and you alone
When my days are few
and death is near
I run to you and you alone
'Cause you're my light in the dark
and I sing with all of my heart

Hallelujah
My almighty God divine
Hallelujah
I am yours and you are mine
This is all I know I will say
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

When trouble comes and goes
and when the cold wind blows
I lift my hands up, I lift my hands up
When sorrow knocks me down
and you pick me off the ground
I lift my hands up, I lift my hands up

And I sing, Hallelujah
My almighty God divine
Hallelujah
I am yours and you are mine
This is all I know I will say

Hallelujah
By the grace of God above
Hallelujah
Our shining light to shine above
This is all I know I will say
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
This is all I know I will say
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
You're My everything

Ohh Ohh, You're my everything

Unbelievable

(ft. Hanson)

It's unbelievable
This is as good as it gets
It's unbelievable
Don't know what's gonna happen next
It's unbelievable
You haven't seen nothing yet
It's unbelievable, it's unbelievable

When I was a kid I saved up all my dough so I could buy C-3PO
Put Mentos in my Diet Coke in the backseat of the bus
When I was a kid I ate "Spaghetti Os", played laser tag and GI Joe's
And if you vowed no girls allowed then you could join the club
When I was I was a kid I spent my Saturday's
Blowin' on Nintendo games
The newest thing was Lion King and I could feel the love

It's unbelievable
This is as good as it gets
It's unbelievable
Don't know what's gonna happen next
It's unbelievable
You haven't seen nothing yet
It's unbelievable, it's unbelievable

[Hanson:]
When I was a kid I dreamed of Power Wheels
Stayed up late watching action films
And I won't lie, my friends and I, were too legit to quit
When I was a kid I lived for climbing trees, ate Dr Pepper jellybeans
My favorite part of "Jurassic Park" was how real the Raptors looked
When I was a kid I still had VHS, watched Fresh Prince and Jazzy Jeff, Zack Morrison,
the first cell phone, it was off the hook!

It's unbelievable
This is as good as it gets
It's unbelievable
Don't know what's gonna happen next
It's unbelievable
You haven't seen nothing yet
It's unbelievable, it's unbelievable

Cat, pogs, and floam and Home Alone, Berenstein bears and bean bag chairs
My L.A. Looks and Goosebumps books, oh Etch-a-sketch
What happens next?
Grape juicy juice and Dr. Seuss, piggy-back rides and
Slip-n-slides, McDonalds Fries, those were the best
What happens next?

It's unbelievable
This is as good as it gets
It's unbelievable
Don't know what's gonna happen next
It's unbelievable
You haven't seen nothing yet
It's unbelievable, those were the days oh-oh

It's unbelievable
When I think back on my name
It's unbelievable
Cause baby those were the days
It's unbelievable
It ruled in so many ways
It's unbelievable, it's unbelievable

(And I'm so amazed!)
(Those were the days!)

Bird With A Broken Wing

So I walk alone down the darkest roads
Cause I've always known how the story goes
When the curtain falls I'll be wearing thin
Clawing at the walls as they're closing in
In this twisted plot I was destined for
I'm an astronaut on the ocean floor
So misunderstood 'till the bloody end
How I wish I could do it all again

It feels like I'm a lone survivor
Forgotten in a dark and deadly world
And on my own I walk alone
To see the sun again I'd give anything
But life demands a final chapter
A story that we all must leave behind
It's do or die, and this is mine
The anthem of a bird with a broken wing

It's another night of the living dead
Like a viper bite in a spiderweb
It's so deathly dark in the alleyway
And a bleeding heart makes you easy prey
I would run and hide for the afternoon
With the butterfly in the panic room
Though I won't be missed, I would say it's time
For a different twist in the story line

It feels like I'm a lone survivor
Forgotten in a dark and deadly world
And on my own I walk alone
To see the sun again I'd give anything
But life demands a final chapter
A story that we all must leave behind
It's do or die, and this is mine
The anthem of a bird with a broken wing
The anthem of a bird with a broken wing

It feels like I'm a lone survivor
Forgotten in a dark and deadly world
And on my own I walk alone
To see the sun again I'd give anything
But life demands a final chapter
A story that we all must leave behind
It's do or die, and this is mine
The anthem of a bird with a broken wing
The anthem of a bird with a broken wing
The anthem of a bird with a broken wing

Tell the world I know that my mind is made
It's a hard show, but I'm not afraid
Though I won't be missed, I would say it's time
For a different twist in the story line

Back Home

[Owl City:]
I'm saying goodbye to the skyline
Hello to the sweet pines
Gonna see you later street lights
I'm headed back to tree lines
To free time and starry nights
To bonfires and fire flies
Pack your bags it's time to go
Cause we got brighter lights back home

[Jake Owen:]
I've got aching feet
From walking over miles of concrete
And I can't wait to dream
But the city, you know she won't go to sleep
So I'm saying...

[Owl City:]
Goodbye to the skyline
Hello to the sweet pines
Gonna see you later street lights
I'm headed back to tree lines
To free time and starry nights
To bonfires and fire flies
Pack your bags it's time to go
Cause we got brighter lights back home
Yeah, we got brighter lights

[Jake Owen:]
Back home there's a girl named Mary Lou
A diner off the highway with a corner booth
And every gravel road is a trip down memory lane
And back home, where the corn grows ten feet tall
Every year's measured on the pantry wall
The willow trees are waving 'til we come back home again

[Owl City (Jake Owen):]
I'm saying goodbye to the skyline
Hello to the sweet pines
Gonna see you later street lights
I'm headed back to tree lines
(To free time and starry nights
To bonfires and fire flies
Pack your bags it's time to go)
Pack your bags it's time to go

[Owl City (Jake Owen):]
I'm saying goodbye to the skyline
Hello to the sweet pines
Gonna see you later street lights
I'm headed back to tree lines
To free time and starry nights
(To bonfires and fire flies)
Pack your bags it's time to go
Pack your bags it's time to go
(Cause we got brighter lights back home)

Can't Live Without You

All the thoughts in my head spinning 'round like a hurricane
And life leaves me so confused
When I trip and I fall I collapse like a tidal wave
So I'm crying out to you

You reached down out of nowhere
And picked my heart up off the floor
You put my life back together
And I'm not broken anymore

You're my only wish for a dream come true
And it goes like this: Will you come to my rescue?
You're the only hope that I'm clinging to
And I hope you know I can't live without you
(I hope you know) I can't live without you
(I hope you know) I can't live without you

When I'm hit like a hook to the jaw in a tidal fight
I'm down and I'm knocked out cold, you know
And with my heart broke apart like a wreck in a shallow tide
Yeah I've never felt this low

You reached down out of nowhere
And picked my heart up off the floor
You put my life back together
And I'm not broken anymore

You're my only wish for a dream come true
And it goes like this: Will you come to my rescue?
You're the only hope that I'm clinging to
And I hope you know I can't live without you
(I hope you know) I can't live without you
(I hope you know) I can't live without you
You're my only wish for a dream come true
And it goes like this: Will you come to my rescue?
You're the only hope that I'm clinging to
And I hope you know I can't live without you
You're my only wish for a dream come true
And it goes like this: Will you come to my rescue?
You're the only hope that I'm clinging to
And I hope you know I can't live without you

You're Not Alone

[Adam:]
Some days I barely hold on
When life drags me down
I wanna let go
But when my spirit is weak
You come to my aid
And strengthen my soul

I'm lost without You
I'll never doubt You
Your grace is beyond compare
And though when it rains, it pours
You know all I have is Yours
You smile when you hear my prayer

You rescued me and I believe
That God is love and He is all I need
From this day forth for all eternity
I'll never wander on my own
For I am Yours until you call me home
I close my eyes and I can hear You say
You're not alone!
You're not alone!

[Britt:]
Some days I just can't go on
I stumble and fall
And I hang my head
But You reach out for my hand
And You lift me up
Again and again
Oh, yes, You do

[Both:]
I'm lost without You
I'll never doubt You
Your grace is beyond compare
And though when it rains, it pours
You know all I have is Yours
You smile when you hear my prayer
You rescued me and I believe
That God is love and He is all I need
From this day forth for all eternity
I'll never wander on my own
For I am Yours until you call me home
I close my eyes and I can hear You say
You're not alone!
You're not alone!

[Adam:]
In the face of my depravity

[Britt:]
For God so loved the world He died for me
Yeah

[Both:]
My fire burns 'til He returns
And takes me home beyond the galaxy

[Britt:]
You rescued me and I believe
That God is love and He is all I need
From this day forth for all eternity

[Adam:]
All eternity!

[Both:]
I'll never wander on my own
For I am Yours until you call me home
I close my eyes and I can hear You say
You're not alone!
You're not alone!

[Britt:]
You're not
You're not alone
Never alone...

This Isn't The End

An eight year old girl had a panic attack
'Cause the father she loved left and never looked back
No longer the hero she counted on
He told her he loved her and then he was gone

She tried to look happy in front of her friends
But knew that she'd never feel normal again
She fought back the tears as they filled her eyes
And wanted him back just to tell him goodbye

When the rain falls down
When it all turns around
When the light goes out
This isn't the end

Her dad was a good guy that everyone liked
But nobody knew he was dying inside
He promised his family he'd be alright
And then with a gunshot he left them behind

When the rain falls down
When it all turns around
When the light goes out
This isn't the end

When the rain falls down
When it all turns around
When the light goes out
This isn't the end, no.

The role of a father he never deserved
He abandoned his daughter and never returned
And over the years though the pain was real
She finally forgave him and started to heal

How close is the ending, well, nobody knows
The future's a mystery and anything goes
Love is confusing and life is hard
You fight to survive 'cause you made it this far

It's all too astounding to comprehend
It's just the beginning this isn't the end
It's just the beginning this isn't the end

Tokyo

(Japanese Edition Bonus Track)

Feels like I've been away for a thousand years
So tired of these airports and souvenirs
I shiver in the night and I think of you

I stroll the boulevards
I stare up at the stars
And wish they'd all align (when I'm in Tokyo)
You keep me on my toes
And this is how it goes
You never leave my mind

Are you having fun yet?
I'll send you the sunset
I love the most
When I'm in Tokyo
I'll melt in the moonlight
And follow the shoreline
On down the coast
When I'm in Tokyo
Oooh, can't sleep the whole night through
Oooh, when I am missing you
I'm thinking it out loud
I wish I could reach out
And hold you close
When I'm in Tokyo

I wander all alone in the pouring rain
Ride shotgun on the wind in a bullet train
I shiver in the night and I think of you

I stroll the boulevards
I stare up at the stars
And wish they'd all align
You keep me on my toes
And this is how it goes
You never leave my mind

Are you having fun yet?
I'll send you the sunset
I love the most
When I'm in Tokyo
I'll melt in the moonlight
And follow the shoreline
On down the coast
When I'm in Tokyo
Oooh, can't sleep the whole night through
Oooh, when I am missing you
I'm thinking it out loud
I wish I could reach out
And hold you close
When I'm in Tokyo

I stroll the boulevards
I stare up at the stars
And wish they'd all align
You keep me on my toes
And this is how it goes
You never leave my mind

Are you having fun yet?
I'll send you the sunset
I love the most

I'll melt in the moonlight
And follow the shoreline
On down the coast

Oooh, can't sleep the whole night through
Oooh, when I am missing you
I'm thinking it out loud
I wish I could reach out
And hold you close
When I'm in Tokyo (When I'm in Tokyo)

When I'm in Tokyo (When I'm in Tokyo)

When I'm in Tokyo (When I'm in Tokyo)

When I'm in Tokyo (When I'm in Tokyo)

When I'm in Tokyo (When I'm in Tokyo)
