Secrets
I never ask where you’re going or when you’ll be back
How far this road might take us how long this kiss will last
‘Cause I don’t think we’re pretending don’t think about us ever ending

As I sit here alone with the lights down low
I can feel you hiding
If words we’ve said or nights we’ve spent
Ever make you wonder why
Just tell me what’s on your mind 
‘Cause I don’t like secrets
No I don’t like secrets

We’ve strolled the lights of Manhattan and the Champs Elysées
Sipped italian espresso at a sidewalk cafe
The place I first asked the question do you think about us ever ending

CHORUS

I’ve waited too long to tell you
How I really feel about you
You’re all i think of all i need
Girl that’s a secret I can’t keep

‘Cause I don’t like secrets
No I don’t like secrets
Oh I don’t like secrets
Back To Me
There’s a steppin’ stone in the middle of a stream
You’ve been standin’ on
Water’s risin’ now it’s well above your feet
We both know it won’t be long till there’s

Nowhere to run
Nowhere to turn to
That haze behind you is smoke from bridges burnin’
Look back you’ll see I’m still within reach
When there’s nowhere to run – run back to me

Why’d you climb so high up in that tree?
What are you hiding from?
Did you lose at love, make a promise you can’t keep
Did your faith just go numb and there’s

CHORUS

Oohh – when life’s a broken road
Oohh – and the pieces get hard to hold — if there’s

CHORUS
What Isn't
Everything was a piece of cake
Whatever he wanted Billy’d take
A little piece here a whole lot there
Till the night he woke to roadside flares
Lights out two dead on the spot
Those kids just flew thru that old rag top 
Best friends never said goodbye 
Billy’s curse his will to survive

A twisted heart in a broken man
He was rock beat down to sand
Stone blown to smithereens
A shattered soul that never dreams
He stares out from his prison
At shadows in the distance
Tries to catch a glimpse – of what isn’t

Billy’s view of reality
Is a leap of faith from 10,000 feet
A freefall jump with no parachute
If he never lands it’ll be too soon
Straight Jack for the tales that he spins
On the regular crowd at the Holiday Inn
Pocket change for a taxi ride
A nickel bag on the nights he flies 

CHORUS

Can’t let go of what he never had
‘cause he sees the future through his past
And what isn’t

CHORUS
Between Us
I wanna feel you breath
On my neck as we fall asleep
Hear your whisper fill the silence
In the emptiness between us
Between us

Said you had to fly
Like a star shot across the sky
Now we’re reaching through the distance
Through the emptiness between us
Between us

All the walls we built let’s climb them
Take the lies we told unwind them
Pick the pieces up one by one – one by one

Till I feel you breath
On my neck as we fall asleep
Hear your whisper fill the silence
So there’s no emptiness between us
Between us
Take Back Sunday
Wanna take back Sunday wanna find some rest
I’m tired and I’m thirsty and I could use a sip of grace
Guess I’ll take it one day one day at a time
Gonna lift my head above the clouds and search for peace of mind

There’s a river winding my emotions
Rapids running wild
I’m trying to find a narrow bend to cross and
Get back to the other side

Maybe take back Sunday maybe find some rest
Oh I wanna ask forgiveness but I can’t forgive myself
So I’ll take it one day one day at a time
Grab a hammer and a chisel and try to slowly break the ice

Of this winter storm that’s driving through me
Tearing up my soul
Yeah I wanna know how good it feels
To bring a friend in from the cold

If I could take back Sunday I might find some rest
But I’ll willingly stay thirsty if I could be one sip of grace
