Life goes on, days fleet by Yeah, they’re gone, with no goodbye With every run that I survive I turn to the sun to know I’m alive Frame up every loss, a memento of how I fought Yesterday's a day I can cross off of the page So when I go out tomorrow, just for the day I'm gonna drown my sorrow, dance it away And if you decide to follow, tell me you'll stay Even if our sky begin to grey And everything turns forever, moves to the rhythm Of the heart, love is our axis and axiom Everything's now or never, this is our anthem Yeah you know, we'll love and love again The sparkle of the blue untouched by me and you We'll sail the skies and say we left all our battles behind Now the tears of yesterday a thousand miles away We'll sail the skies all day Never knowing which nameless sea we'll find Years ago (Gotta go, gotta be at the start line Gotta know, want the sea and the sunshine) I was lost (Make it so, sailing off at the shoreline Let it go when I know what is mine, oh) Did I know (Gotta go, gotta be at the start line Gotta know, want the sea and the sunshine) How much it cost (Make it so, sailing off at the shoreline Let it go when I know what is mine, oh) I shrug off the chains (Gotta go, gotta be at the start line Gotta know, want the sea and the sunshine) That guarded my heart (Make it so, sailing off at the shoreline Let it go when I know what is mine, oh) A new age begins (Gotta go, gotta be at the start line Gotta know, want the sea and the sunshine) It's time to restart (Make it so, sailing off at the shoreline Let it go when I know) So when I go out tomorrow, just for the day I'm gonna drown my sorrow, dance it away And if you decide to follow, tell me you'll stay Even if our sky begin to grey So won't you come out and join me, dance to the thunder Let the rain fall like we fell for each other I know it's temporary, but till it's over Promise that we'll go it hand in hand The sparkle of the blue untouched by me and you We'll sail the skies and say we left all our battles behind Now the tears of yesterday a thousand miles away We'll sail the skies all day Never knowing which nameless sea we'll find Every sea and sky and every song and sigh I write the names that I still recall tonight

Wade in the waves when the tide is low You hear them lapping at your door Here, it's deceptively clear but you don't know Just what you're lookin' for There's always more than what meets the eye So dive in deep beyond the shore And, let the sand keep you high and dry But watch out as breakers roar, yeah Things always lie closer than they appear There's grand secrets lost on ocean floors Beware every ripple, as they draw near The riptides of my shallow shores I stay low, though I'm sure we could go I'll wait for her call to know, mustn't pull her under No, always submerged in her glow She holds back, she's afraid of flying I change tack, guess it's worth trying Lightning crack, am I still denying My hull breakin' on her Hundreds of things you don't see Constellate as the history of me There's always more than what meets the eye So dive in deep beyond the shore and, let the sand keep you high and dry but watch out as breakers roar, yeah (Go with the flow) Things always lie closer than they appear There's grands secrets lost on ocean floors beware every ripple, as they draw near the riptides of my shallow shores

I used to watch for passing ships As if I might see the same one twice And I waited with breath bated on my lips As if someday I might hear his voice All the seeking and the drawn out sighs Couldn't prepare me for that night When he said move on, he'd been ready to fly And like a star in the sky he was gone Someday maybe I'll tell you my story There's a whole library of regret for the things I'll never do Oh, I've tried to close that book of rue But if you're down to try, I'd reopen those pages with you There's a corner in my heart for plans we didn't start The time we spent apart didn't fade his words away And ever since that day, I've let his shadow stay A haunting in the places I don't look at anymore But when the sunset pours in I can't keep my eyes open It's like outside me, everything has moved forward While I'm rereading foreword, hopin' Whoa-o-o-oh Someday maybe I'll tell you my story There's a whole library of regret for the things I'll never do Oh, I've tried to close that book of rue But if you're down to try, I'd reopen those pages, yeah Someday maybe I'll let myself weigh heavy There's an inventory of the things from my past that stay with me Even if you don't know what to do, if you're still not afraid There's a world I would trade in for you Telling the truth is half the fight Bring every secret to the light Unfinished manuscripts with half written promises Every surrender and strife Every love lost in my life Fight my fear, lay it out Where would I be without you Tell me how to begin 'cause Someday baby I'll tell you my story There's a whole library of regret for the things I'll never do Oh, I've tried to close that book of rue But if you're down to try, I'd reopen those pages with you Someday baby I'll let myself weigh heavy There's an inventory of the things from my past that stay with me Even if you don't know what to do, if you're still not afraid There's a world I would trade in for you

We knew it wouldn't last Your eyes were hollow An omen of sorrow This is the bed we made A slow burn explosion A crash in slow motion And I took the pains, I drew my crosses I took my gains, I cut my losses I braced myself for when it hit I braced myself to let go I watched it fall, the sky and all I saw it coming but it just hit harder Burned my wings and broke my strings I fell and fell into the rolling thunder Let you make your play, I thought you'd say you want to stay despite it all but it went as written and all was blown away Weeks, a blur of fears I've lived a minute for years and years Climbing through the ruins I've wasted centuries rebuilding towers from my tears Tried to fit each piece into the other I broke myself to match another You fought for me, I fought for you But nothing seemed to stay I watched it fall, the sky and all I saw it coming but it just hit harder Burned my wings and broke my strings I fell and fell into the rolling thunder Let you make your play, I thought you'd say you want to stay despite it all but it went as written and all was blown away The first to leave, the last to let go The last to let go, the last to get better The last to grieve, the last to move on The last to move on, the last to remember The first to leave, the last to let go The last to let go, the last to get better The last to grieve, the last to move on The last to move on, the last to remember I watched it fall, the sky and all (The first to leave, the last to let go) I saw it coming but it just hit harder (The last to let go, the last to get better) Burned my wings and broke my strings (The last to grieve, the last to move on) I fell and fell into the rolling thunder (The last to move on, the last to remember) Gone, the city sights, the spurs and lights (The first to leave, the last to let go) It hit and hit again but harder (The last to let go, the last to get better) Burned my wings and broke my strings (The last to grieve, the last to move on) I fell and fell into the darkness under (The last to move on, the last to remember) Let you make your play, I thought you'd say (The first to leave, the last to let go) you want to stay despite it all (The last to let go, the last to get better) but it went as written (The last to grieve, the last to move on) (The last to move on) The last to get better

Vanish 03:41
And it's always on these dusky days That all these years you were gone Still vanish in the rays And the sun can lie but the moon will show That after all this time I can't let go Someone tell me how to live this endless life When each flower I give is answered by a knife So the days go on and the world will turn And every season still finds new ways to burn And it's always on these dusky days That all these years you were gone Still vanish in the rays And the sun can lie but the moon will show That after all this time I can't let go Someone tell me how to live this endless life When each flower I give is answered by a knife So the days go on and the world will turn And every season still finds new ways to burn And it's always on these dusky days That all these years you were gone Still vanish in the rays And the sun can lie but the moon will show That after all this time I can't let go Someone tell me how to live this endless life When each flower I give is answered by a knife So the days go on and the world will turn And every season still finds new ways to burn

Take my hand, we'll float away, in search of the sun And then they, on land, can't say a thing when we've run Fly, we'll see there's so much sky beyond our bay Keep your eye on me, and I'll show you the way I'm tired of moving nowhere They all say don't go there All my dreams are threadbare Head hung low But since the day I met you I just can't forget you Baby can I let you know I want to go see the world together, forever, Whatever the weather, we'll keep our course, so Rained upon, snow or sun, when we've begun We'll make a run for far-off places whose names we don't know Oh, won't you go, come along, my summer song, the wind is strong Can't go wrong, we're sailing on where they won't know we're Soaring high, sinking low, anywhere that you may go I'll come cause I love you so I'm tired of moving nowhere They all say don't go there All my dreams are threadbare Head hung low But since the day I met you I just can't forget you Baby can I let you know I want to go see the world together, forever, Whatever the weather, we'll keep our course so Rained upon, snow or sun, when we've begun We'll make a run for far-off places whose names we don't know Oh, won't you go, come along, my summer song, the wind is strong Won't be long, we're sailing on where they won't know we're Soaring high, sinking down, we'll make right what was wrong I can cause I love you so In places that we don't know

Our Sky 01:10
Kimi ga ano sora wo atashi ni okutta koto Itsumademo zenzen wasurenai yo Zensekai wa zutto henkashiteiru kedo Aozora ga eien no So I carried my heavy heart beyond the shore There I sank in the waves, just couldn't take anymore Then I heard you call out and your smile broke the clouds And I saw like I hadn't before Now from the day you turned to me And said the sky was mine to pursue I knew everything would be alright if I was with you Time will change the whole world anew Nothing will remain as we knew But our sky will forever be blue
