Searchlight

Take one step and make it count
Hold your breath then let it out
What's left unsaid, say it loud
There's a fire in me
That's still burning

I'm sending out a searchlight
Shine it out until I find you, oh
Can you bring me back to life
When my heart's in smithereens
I wanna feel what it's like
To be surrounded by you, oh
So I'm sending out a searchlight
To bring you back to me

I'm lost again in this night
The sun just leads me into shadows
In my bones, in my blood
You cure my disease
Like a remedy

I'm sending out a searchlight
Shine it out until I find you, oh
Can you bring me back to life
When my heart's in smithereens
I wanna feel what it's like
To be surrounded by you, oh
So I'm sending out a searchlight
To bring you back to me

Like a wild river
In a hurricane
Like a fallen empire
I will rise again
Take on step
And make it count

I'm sending out a searchlight
Shine it out until I find you, oh
Can you bring me back to life
When my heart's in smithereens
I wanna feel what it's like
To be surrounded by you, oh
So I'm sending out a searchlight
To bring you back to me

Raging Fire

We are dead to rights morning ray
We are thick and thin 'til our last day
So hold me close and I'll surrender to your heart
You know how to give and how to take
You see every hope I locked away
So pull me close and surrender to my heart

Before the flame goes out tonight
Yeah, we'll live until we die

So c'mon c'mon c'mon
Won't you turn my soul into a raging fire?
C'mon c'mon c'mon
'Til we lose control into a raging fire
Into a raging fire
C'mon c'mon c'mon
Won't you turn my soul into a raging fire?

You know time will give and time will take
All the memories made will wash away
Even though we've changed, I'm still here with you
If you listen close, you'll hear the sound
Of all the ghosts that bring us down
Hold on to what makes you feel
Don't let go, it's what makes you real

If the flame goes out tonight
Yeah, we'll live until we die

So c'mon c'mon c'mon
Won't you turn my soul into a raging fire?
C'mon c'mon c'mon
'Til we lose control into a raging fire
Into a raging fire
C'mon c'mon c'mon
Won't you turn my soul into a raging fire?

Let the world leave us behind,
Let your heart be next to mine
Before the flame goes out tonight,
We can live until we die

C'mon c'mon c'mon
Won't you turn my soul into a raging fire?

C'mon c'mon c'mon
Won't you turn my soul into a raging fire?
C'mon c'mon c'mon
'Til we lose control into a raging fire
Into a raging fire

Trigger

I heard the words come out of your mouth again
So quietly you said
"I need someone to hold my heart again
Like it felt when I was just a kid"

Will you take me far away
From this fear that pulls me near?
Will you take it out?
What's inside of my mind, what's screaming out

Inside your hand it holds the question to it all
You start to pull the trigger, you start to pull the trigger
Inside your mind it goes where no one really knows
You start to pull the trigger, you start to pull the trigger

I saw the tears roll down from your eyes again
So softly they fell
I reached to you to wipe them off your chin
But you stopped me and said

"Please just leave me be.
I feel as though no one knows what goes on inside of me"
Then I turned to see it was too late to give you love
But it was too late to give you up

Inside your hand it holds the question to it all
You start to pull the trigger, you start to pull the trigger
Inside your mind it goes where no one really knows
You start to pull the trigger, you start to pull the trigger

And I saw how it all went down
You picked it up and threw it out
I saw how it all went down again

Inside your hand it holds the question to it all
I start to pull the trigger, I start to pull the trigger
Inside my mind it goes where no one ever knows
I start to pull the trigger, I start to pull the trigger

Lead On

I see you in my dreams
Seems like you never leave
You are the blur in my eyes
As I wake up through the night

Ten thousand hands can't hold
This heavy heart of stone
I feel it break like glass
Still I keep coming back

So pick me up then throw me down
Shine the light then turn it out

You make your way through the fire
I stand inside and I get burned
You make your love a liar
I'm hanging on to every word
I can't quit you
And I'm fine with being used
Lead on, lead on and I'll follow
Lead on, lead on

And I'll follow wherever you go
Right down that rabbit hole
Then everything gets dark
And I feel pulled apart

Running through my blood
You are the rarest drug
With every word I breathe
I see the way you've changed me

Around then throw me down
Shine a light then turn it out

You make your way through the fire
I stand inside and I get burned
You make your love a liar
I'm hanging on to every word
I can't quit you
And I'm fine with being used
So lead on, lead on and I'll follow
Lead on, lead on

Paint the road to see the way
Should I go or should I stay
I'll come around again
I'll come around again

We never learn to let it go
Always feel it as you grow
It comes around again
It comes around again, so

Lead on lead on and I'll follow
Lead on lead on
And I'll follow you into the night
Let's get lost until it's light

You make your way through the fire
I stand inside and I get burned
You make your love a liar
I'm hanging on to every word
I can't quit you
And I'm fine with being used
Lead on, lead on and I'll follow
Lead on, lead on and I'll follow
Lead on, lead on and I'll follow
Lead on, lead on and I'll follow
Lead on, lead on and I'll follow
Lead on, lead on

Alive Again

I see myself again
Behind the light I flicker
My shadow starts to bend
Into the night like a whisper

Because of you
It's never the same
Because of you
The darkness fades

Higher and higher
Like a flame on fire
I feel alive again
Desire, desire
Burning brighter and brighter
I feel alive again
I feel alive again

Throw out what makes me thin
But the harder I try, it lingers
You see it through the rain
On the other side it shimmers

Because of you
I'm not afraid
Because of you
I've burned a page

Higher and higher
Like a flame on fire
I feel alive again
Desire, desire
Burning brighter and brighter
I feel alive again
I feel alive again
[x2]

I feel alive again
I feel alive again

Open Your Eyes

The sun rises over the trees again
As for the moon it pushes through the stars and
You tell me go, I say it's alright my friend
For the moments we have in this life they will end

I see who you are but don't believe
You show a side you claim to be

So open your eyes, open your heart and then
Watch it fall out, watch it align and bend
For all that you've done
And for all that you've shown
It's not too late to let it go
Cause it's all yours

Watching the change, seeing the phase within
Our bodies they age and our spirits grow thin
You hear the sound of winter's breeze so quietly
So live for this day, hold it and wait 'til morning gives

I see who you are but don't believe
You show a side you claim to be

Open your eyes, open your heart and then
Watch it fall out, watch it align and bend
For all that you've done
And for all that you've shown
It's not too late to let it go
Cause it's all yours

Open your eyes, open your heart and then
Watch it fall out, watch it align and bend
For all that you've done
And for all that you've shown

Open your eyes, open your heart and then
Watch it fall out, watch it align and bend
For all that you've done
And for all that you've shown
It's not too late to let it go
It's not too late to let it show
Cause it's all yours

Fool For You

Walked through the door
After day had turned its cheek
The letter that you wrote
Yeah, you left it here to read

Said this love's not just for you
It was also meant for me
Let me give you more to feel
Let me show you more to see

Tell me

What you're made of
My sugar and wine
Down from above
You make me so high
High, high

I'm much too young
But just hold on
I'm such a fool
Seeing it now
Saying it loud
You know it's true
That I'm just a fool for
I'm just a fool for you

Everyday I wake up
And I'm twisted in a dream
In between who I am
And the things I want to be

Then there you are raining down
Like water from a fall
You wash me down, dry me off
You keep pouring out your love

Tell me

What you're made of
My sugar and wine
Down from above
You make me so high
High, high

I'm much too young
But just hold on
I'm such a fool
Seeing it now
Saying it loud
You know it's true
That I'm just a fool for
I'm just a fool for you

I know it's alright my friend
You know it's alright my friend

I'm much too young
But just hold on
I'm such a fool
Seeing it now
Saying it loud
You know it's true
That I'm just a fool for
I'm just a fool for you

Thicket

I didn't mean to let you down
I grabbed for your hand but you took it back
Trying hard not to let feelings show
Will only hurt you in the future when the cracks in your skin start to show

Paint a picture of an apple in a tree
Is that all that's there through the thicket of the leaves?
Yes, yes now you see
The bird flying out why don't you jump and see where he leads

Our love was just a dream, just a dream
With all my heart I gave you everything, everything
Oh and you know
That it all goes around and round
Cause you tumbled me down

Troubles seem to get to you
Brush them off, they're only worries, push on through
Hear the heart that beats for your soul
He who has nothing, should not complain, we all have something of our own

Our love was just a dream, just a dream
With all my heart I gave you everything, everything
Oh and you know
That it all goes around and round
Cause you tumbled me down

Was it wrong what I did to get to you
I felt I was the one to help pull you through
And I know, I know it's alright
I found a way out, I found a way out

Our love was just a dream, just a dream
With all my heart I gave you everything, everything
Oh and you know
That it all goes around and round
Cause it all goes around and round

Fly

When the day is done, the weight is on my mind
How should I give up, how should I survive?
Leaning to the side of the busy street
Looking down, these people never notice me
Am I the only one who thinks it's hard to breathe?

I feel it's hard to say what's on my mind
I feel it's hard to say what's not inside
You think your fight is over
It's only so much closer
I reach my hands to the sky
And fly

Ten thousand faces here, but who am I?
Am I the only one with a reason to hide?
Searching through a maze only to find
Another wall to break, another wall to climb
It's when I lose myself, then I realize

I feel it's hard to say what's on my mind
I feel it's hard to say what's not inside
You think your fight is over
It's only so much closer
I reach my hands to the sky
And fly

I feel it's hard to say what's on my mind
I feel it's hard to say what's not inside
You think your fight is over
It's only so much closer
I reach my hands to the sky
And fly

Unpack Your Heart

Meet me where the sunlight ends
Meet me where the truth never bends
Bring all that you're scared to defend

And lay it down when you walk through my door
Throw all of it out on the floor
Your sorrow, your beauty, your war
I want it all, I want it all

Bring your secrets, bring your scars
Bring your glory, all you are
Bring your daylight, bring your dark
Share your silence
And unpack your heart

Show me something the rest never see
Give me all that you hope to receive
Your deepest regret dies with me

The days when you stumble and fall
The days when you grind to a crawl
The treasure that hides behind your walls
I want it all, yeah I want it all

Bring your secrets, bring your scars
Bring your glory, all you are
Bring your daylight, bring your dark
Share your silence
And unpack your heart
Unpack your heart

Oh, I'm on your side
So shed your shadow
And watch it rise

Oh, I'm on your side
So shed your shadow
And watch it rise
Into your darkness
I'll shine a light

Bring your secrets, bring your scars
Bring your glory, all you are
Bring your daylight, bring your dark
Share your silence

Bring your honor, bring your shame
All your madness, I will tame
Won't you lay down, down your guard
Share your silence
And unpack your heart

Face

I know it's all there
Why don't you open up and let me in?

Take it out of your head
Take it out of your thoughts
Cause when you find what you've been missing
I'll be lonely my love, my love

You know it's all here
Why don't you open up and let me in?

I'll take it out of your head
I'll take it out of your thoughts
Give you a reason to stay, give you a reason to not

Cause you saw my heart
And you saw how much it broke and I
Could not ask for more
So I picked up my heart, brushed it off
And walked out the door

I found what you need
Come on and give me what I want, a taste of you with me
The further I go, the closer you seem
Why won't you leave me alone, why won't you leave me be?

Cause you saw my heart
And you saw how much it broke and I
Could not ask for more
So I picked up my heart, brushed it off
And walked out the door
[x2]

When you find your way back in
Darling, I won't give my heart again
[x4]

Cause you saw my heart
And you saw how much it broke and I
Could not ask for more
So I picked up my heart, brushed it off
And walked out the door

Midnight Sun

There's a storm ahead
I see it all round me
I feel it in the air
Shake the ground beneath my feet
And I know it's all a part of me
Did you make a plan
Just to watch it crumble
Now you see yourself
In a mirror that you cannot clean
And it's all a part of you
Oh my friend
Look how time has changed
The cracks in our skin
Oh my friend
Let go of the fear that's inside your head
So stay strong live on
And chase the midnight sun
When the ceiling falls and there's no one watching
We can build again to more than what we
Once could dream
We're bigger than we seem

So break off these strings
That tie around you
Take smaller things
To make up something more to see
Make it bigger than it seems
Oh my friend
Look how time has changed
The cracks in our skin
Oh my friend
Let go of the fear that's inside your head
So stay strong live on
And chase the midnight sun
When you see yourself
As the darkest shadow
I see you as the light
Oh my friend
Look how time has changed the cracks in our skin
Oh my friend
Look how time has changed
The cracks in our skin
Oh my friend
Let go of the fear that's inside your head
So stay strong live on
And chase the midnight sun

My Boy

(Deluxe Edition Bonus Track)

Everything will be okay, my boy, my boy
Everything will be better now, my boy, my boy

Tell me your secret and say it loud
Let time stand still for just a while, just a while

It's hard to say what's in your heart
The truth can break it all apart, all apart

You can take it, time will make it clear, it's clear
And you can take it, the change you're making is here, it's here

Everything will be okay, my boy, my boy
Everything will be better now, my boy, my boy

So tell me now what you need standing there in front of me
So tell me can you see the one you want is the one you believe, you believe

You can take it, time will make it clear, it's clear
And you can take it, the change you're making is here, it's here

Everything will be okay, my boy, my boy
Everything will be better now, my boy

Don't Trust Me

(Deluxe Edition Bonus Track)

I don't believe, I don't believe
What just happened, it seems
Like clouds of rain just poured out on me
The light was much further I could see
But it's too late now I'm gonna make it through these clouds

Clouds hide behind what can't be seen
Just the darkness holds us up, you and me
The dice keeps rolling it never stops on what I need
So I'll change the game, let's see where that takes me

You've gotta live to know who you are

I wanna be the one you run to
When your dreams won't leave you alone
Out in this night you run to your head
But your head won't even hold you
On top of this world, in this life you think you've got it all
Then you look up at the stars
And realize where you are
So dream boy, dream boy
And see where you find yourself in this life

You've gotta live to know who you are

Tell me I'm wrong
Beg me please
I've gotta find out if it's really me
Who I believe
So when I say I'm okay
Don't trust me

I wanna stand on top of the mountain
Shine more than the sun brings out
To each of us each is a key we hold
So why don't we unlock the treasures that we long for
Every fall you catch, every thought you forget
Don't let it slip through your hands to let the next one catch
Everything that was coming your way
Don't let it all start to slowly step away

You've gotta live to know who you are

Tell me I'm wrong
Beg me please
I've gotta find out if it's really me
Who I believe
So when I say I'm okay
Don't trust me
[x2]

Armless Crawler

(Deluxe Edition Bonus Track)

I saw you there again
With your head hanging low
Seemed all the world was weighing you down
Like a heavy stone
Finding out that it's hard not to fall when you stumble
Here it goes again

Pull me out and push again
You never noticed when it all began
Let me go and reel me in
But it's too late now, I'm just an armless crawler
It's too late now, I'm just an armless crawler

I saw it there again
The shadow through the window
Seems to follow me around
Like I've nowhere to go
Knowing now that we can not change the future
Here it goes again

Pull me out and push again
You never noticed when it all began
Let me go and reel me in
But it's too late now, I'm just an armless crawler
It's too late now, I'm just an armless crawler

Pull me out and push again
You never noticed when it all began
Let me go and reel me in
But it's too late now...

Pull me out and push again
You never noticed when it all began
Let me go and reel me in
But it's too late now, I'm just an armless crawler
It's too late now, I'm just an armless crawler
