Track Name: What You Need To Hear (Special Edition)
Hello, hello, hello
I think I must have lost you there
Don't know, don't know, you just disappeared
We're talking in circles, we beat it to death we're not getting anywhere
I can't always tell you what you need to hear
No I can't always tell you what you need to hear

I don't need to know

Hello, hello, hello
I think we need to draw the line
Screaming, shouting what's on your mind
The more that you tell me the less I remember
Does anybody care
And you can't always tell me what I need to hear
No you can't always tell me what I need to hear

I don't need to know
Track Name: More (Special Edition)
Yeah, staring in the face of a killer
Standing in front of the mirror
You know what I mean
Yeah, so much for my education
Praying that the heart of the nation
Will show me something I haven't seen

Yeah, can you give me some more?
Can you give me some more?
What are you saving it for?

Yeah, said you're on a revolution
But sex is only half a solution
When you're thinking of someone else
So come on
Back to the beginning
One more time with feeling
We owe it to ourselves

Yeah, can you give me some more?
Can you give me some more?
What are you saving it for?

Life is only good if you live it
So you don't have to forgive me
'Cause I forgive myself
Track Name: Not What It Seems (Special Edition)
Such a perfect afternoon
I still taste it, not ready to come down
Curtains closed from neighbors' eyes
Don't you know it, we're all part of the show now
Some things are better left unsaid
Keep your mouth shut

It's not what it seems
It's not what it seems
It's not what it seems
It's not what it seems

The strangest feeling fills the room
Quick hide it before somebody comes down
Don't worry, they can't see us
We're almost honest with the lights out
Some things are better left unsaid
Keep your mouth shut

It's not what it seems
It's not what it seems
It's not what it seems
It's not what it seems

Your secret's safe with me

It's not what it seems
Track Name: Open Up (Special Edition)
Eyes up to the front
Steady as she goes
Will there always be a part of you I'll never know
Way to many years
Staring at the door
Surrounded by the ghost of what I've done before
Open up

Look before you jump
Think before you speak
You only wanted what was best for me
I never said it
And you never told me
It's too late for apologies
Open up

Who says we're stuck here
Everyone can change
Say what you want
Open up

Steps are still loose
Where we used to sit
Yeah I never got around to fixing it
Lifting up the mat I can't find the key
These days things aren't where they used to be
Stories never match never seem to agree
We all remember things a little differently
But standing outside isn't working for me anymore
Open up

Who says we're stuck here
Everyone can change
Say what you want
Tell me what you want
Open up

Eyes up to the front
Steady as she goes
Will there always be a part of me you'll never know
Track Name: Pray For Us (Special Edition)
Tonight there's a weight that's on my shoulders
And it's hard for me to sleep
Is there anybody listening to me
Tonight there's a struggle in the distance
And I try to empathize
But it's four in the morning
I close my eyes

Pray for us
Pray for us
Is anyone there
Would anyone pray for us

Tonight if there's something watching over
From a light in outer space
Please don't look at us behaving this way
I know we say we'll make it better
And we won't hurt the ones we love
Must be so hard to believe us with all that we've done
Oh what have we done

Pray for us
Pray for us
Is anyone there
Would anyone pray for us

I don't even know who's wrong or right
And I don't want to choose a side
It's late, so I'm gonna pray for us
Pray for us
Is anyone there
Would anyone pray for us
Track Name: The Great Mistakes (Special Edition)
Old houses used to hold our dreams
And no one knew a life beyond those streets
Will we ever feel that young again
We believed in every song we heard
And learned our lessons just by getting hurt
Will we ever feel that young again
Will we ever feel that way again

Games lost throwing hope into the stars
But we found each other in the backseats of borrowed cars
And looking back I knew we'd never win
But darling I believed it when we kissed

Will we ever feel that young again
Will we ever feel that way again
Will we ever
Will we ever

If I could see your face after the great mistakes
I would have known that this is what I always wanted
If I could have seen this place before all the lonely days
I would have known that you were what I always wanted

Will we ever feel that young again
Will we ever feel that way again
Will we ever
Will we ever
Track Name: O Love (Special Edition)
O love
Whatcha doin to me
O love
I don't want you to leave

Even when I'm sober I can't get you off my mind
This creeping crawling feeling keeps on scratching me inside
And the drums don't lie when you fall behind
But maybe this is love

I just want to start a fire
Tear the pavement off the street
Anything to make you notice me
If this was all that we were given
Then this is all we need

O love
Whatcha doin to me
O love
I don't want you to leave

I'll let you sail me up the river
Leave me hanging out to dry
This familiar restless feeling keeps me sitting up at night
And the drums don't lie when you fall behind
Still I can't get enough

I just want to start a fire
Tear the pavement off the street
Anything to make you notice me
If this was all that we were given
Then this is all we need

I just want to start a fire
Tear the pavement off the street
Anything to make you notice me
If there's gonna be a war
I'll take my last shot at the dream
How'd you know if you have ever been free
If this is love then keep it safe
Just leave the flowers on my grave
If only just until the winter leaves
If this was all that we were given
Then this is all we need

O love
Whatcha doin to me
Track Name: Wake Up (Special Edition)
Heart-stopping daily grind
The caffeine rules your veins
No time to look around
No time to search for change

Stop faking, stop faking
I know you're not asleep

Wake up
It's a glorious day
Wake up
Do you have something to say
Wake up
It's a glorious day
So why would you stay in bed

Young lovers fantasize
of diamond-studded hands
As faithful lonely patriots
protect their god and land

Stop faking, stop faking
I know you're not asleep

Wake up
It's a glorious day
Wake up
Do you have something to say
Wake up
It's a glorious day
So why would you stay in bed

It rises up in the morning light
There's nowhere left to hide
That feeling you used to know so well
You still recognize

Wake up
It's a glorious day
Wake up
Do you have something to say
Wake up
It's a glorious day
So why would you stay in bed
