Track Name: Love
Love – Written by Matthew Sams

Behold the sentimental touch of love
Pouring on my head from the stars above
Feeding me scraps from God’s table
Killing me by faking I’m stable
It’s love

It’s love

The rain falls, dripping on my skin
Then I wonder what I got myself in
Epiphanies, here at every turn
Tears in my eyes sting and burn
All I burn is for love

It’s love

You were the blood that feeds me
It’s like cutting my wrists to set you free
I know now that no one really needs this
Wandering around with nowhere to be
But all I see and hear is love

It’s love

I hurt I bleed love
I cut I feed love
I love I need love
It’s love
Track Name: Glorybound
Glory Bound – Written by Matthew Sams

I once said goodbye and I thought I meant it
No one got the note, cause I never sent it
I was glory bound, until I found

The smiles in this live I could never fake it
The frown in this heart I could never shake it
I was glory bound, until I found

That same old song, that same old smile

We danced a little and we played some tunes
We talked about the things we would never do
We were glory bound, until we found

All those Saturdays ended way too soon
With soaking wet clothes and a popped balloon
I could have sworn, I was on to you

But we paint smiles on our faces, to get through another day

We paint smiles on our faces, to get through another day

I said goodbye and I couldn’t tell if
I fell out of love or I couldn’t help it
I was glory bound, and then I found
Track Name: Eleven Roses
Eleven Roses – Written by Matthew Sams

I gave to you eleven roses
It seems I’m always short of a dozen
When it comes to you, what can I do
To bring that smile to your face

I came to you and I had nothing
You smiled and told me you don’t care
When it comes to you, what can I do
To make you stick around with me

Cause when I sing, I sing in your honor
To be with you, is where I want to be
And what I bring, won’t be discovered
Unless you ride out this storm with me, with me

I showed to you this naked heart
It seems we’re always out of reach
When it comes to you, what can I do
When I see this rain coming down

But when I sing, I sing in your honor
To be with you, is where I want to be
And what I bring, won’t be discovered
Unless you ride out this storm with me, with me

But when I sing, I sing in your honor
To be with you, is where I want to be
And what I bring, won’t be discovered
Unless you ride out this storm with me, with me
Track Name: Take Me Home
Take Me Home – Written by Matthew Sams

Why do we ignore what we need?
We used to know how to be free
We don’t feel anymore
The worlds become a killing floor

Why can’t we hear the truth?
Distracted by pain and abuse
We live our whole lives afraid
We keep our minds in chains

So sing a song of peace
Something to help us believe
This world is not all there is
So sing us a song of peace
And take me home

How can we sleep in this noise?
Do we even have a choice?
I can’t believe what I see
These illusions have gone way too far

There is no more truth, There is only love

So sing a song of peace
Something to help us all believe
This world is not all there is
So sing us a song of peace
And take me home
Track Name: Burn
Burn – Written by Matthew Sams

Bonfire soothes me, like no other
You confuse me, consume each other
And no one can see me, for what I really feel
Until one another hides your fear

Condescending little whore, nobody cares about you anymore
And you’ll never listen, you’ll never learn
Your lips are potent, as you want to burn

No one would ever want to decide
Nowhere to go to forever hide
In all the places of all your dreams
You never learn, you always scream
It’s not a dream, you’re real, It’s not a dream, you’re real
Of all that you want, no more for you to play with anymore
All gone now, all gone now

And you wake up, sweat running down
To where you ought a be, you know you’ll never drown
In all your tears, never leave in all your years
Never calm, in too much fear
Of all that you want, all of that is gone
You’re not real at all, You’re not real at all

Drown down, drown in your tears
Drown down, lost all your years
Drown down, you never learn
Drown down, I’ll never burn
Track Name: Saying Goodbye
Saying Goodbye – Written by Matthew Sams

Saying goodbye to this life
And all it means to say goodbye
To this world and their dreams
May they rest, in pieces of
A broken heart and a broken back
Of a useless life, with nothing left to show
What we could do, if given half a chance
To prove, our love is true
Lies we knew, shining through
I hang my head, in the moonlight
Nightshade lit, waiting for the rain
To wash away, all this life time
Of hurt and rage, I’m in headlights
And I’m staying put

Saying goodbye to this life
And all it means to say goodbye
To this world and their dreams
May they rest, in pieces
Track Name: Sunny Day
Sunny Day – Written by Matthew Sams

(sunshine, please stay, sunshine don’t go away)

We talk in circles, about who’s to blame
While never admitting that this is a shame
So we go our separate ways, with nothing to laugh about
But I dream of what I’d say, if given another chance

It’s just another sunny day, with nothing to laugh about
But all this sunshine means nothing when you’re gone

So, I dance and sing, pretend it’s all okay
If this meant a thing, why did it turn out this way?
I just go about my day, with nothing to care about
But I dream of what I said, to make you go away

It’s just another sunny day, with nothing to care about
But all this sunshine means nothing if you’re gone

I just go along my way, with nothing to care about
But I’m dreaming of the day, that you come back to me

It’s just another sunny day, with nothing to care about
But all this sunshine means nothing when you’re gone

(sunshine, please stay, sunshine, don’t go away)
Track Name: Tonight's Alright
Tonight’s Alright – Written by Matthew Sams

Did you see it, or did you want to lie?
Could you fake it and say everything is fine?
Could you take it, or would you break and cry?
Would you cry?

If I cry, all my tears would fall for nothing
If I cry
If you lied, all my fears came true that night
I’m alone tonight, tonight

When you come home, you come home to him
I sit here all alone, with my bottle of Jim
I got the kind of scars, that time could never mend
Will I mend?

If I cry, all my tears would fall for nothing
If I cry
If you lied, all my fears came true that night
I’m alone tonight, tonight

If I hurt you, I don’t know what I did
If I forget you, it’s still too late to live
I guess now, only time can forgive, me

But if I cry, all my tears would fall for nothing
If I cry
If you lied, all my fears came true that night
I’m alone tonight, tonight

I’m alright
Track Name: Happy (Relatively Speaking)
Happy (Relatively Speaking) – Written by Matthew Sams

When I was alone, I thought that I would die
But when I was alone with you, I never felt more alive
If this was a simple world, you would never leave
I could wave some magic wand, and suddenly you’d believe

That I’m the happiest I’ve ever been, but that’s not saying much
I’m the happiest I’ve ever been, and that could be enough, for me

If I led a simple life, I could understand
What I could have been for you, and maybe a better man
This life has beat me down too long, but I can’t be afraid
If I was a better friend to you, maybe you would have stayed

But I’m the happiest I’ve ever been, but that’s not saying much
I’m the happiest I’ve ever been, but that’s gotta be enough for me

I’m the happiest I’ve ever been, but that’s not saying much
I’m the happiest I’ve ever been, but that’s gotta be enough for me
Track Name: Happy Ending
Happy Ending – Written by Matthew Sams

I want a happy ending, I want a dream come true
I want everything I’ve ever wanted, I want to be taken in by you

This trouble’s lost all meaning, I guess it’s time to take a stand
This world, is miles beneath my feet, I’m doing everything I can

Burned, broken and bruised, with nothing left to do
But when you quit, you lose

You are my happy ending, you are my dream come true
You are, everything I’ve ever wanted, you are all I have to lose

There’s nothing left to do, but sing these empty blues
But when you quit, you lose

When you quit, you lose
Track Name: In the Heart of the Sun
In the Heart of the Sun – Written by Matthew Sams

Something must be wrong with my mind, I’m laughing and crying at the same time
I feel I must get out of here and none of you could change how I feel

My life is changing in too many ways, we try so hard to stay the same
My head hurts and I’ll tear it away, I hear them singing to me night and day

I don’t know just how I should feel, that person that they want, I just can’t be
I don’t like what’s happening here, I just can’t hide my fear
Hide your fear, hide your fear away

You feel the same, you scream nothing, nothing is known, nothing is known
Nothing’s gonna change, unless you make it now
No one’s gone forever, no one’s gone for good

I hear you cry, I tell you it’s all right
No one’s gone forever, no one’s gone for good

This world is in ashes, this world is in dust at our feet

There is no truth, there is only love
We all exist, in the heart of the sun
There is no truth, there is only love
We all exist, in the heart of the sun
There is no truth, there is only love
We all exist, in the heart of the sun
There is no truth, there is only love
We all exist, in the heart of the sun
There is no truth, there is only love
We all exist, in the heart of the sun
There is no truth, there is only love
We all exist, in the heart of the sun
There is no truth, there is only love
We all exist, in the heart of the sun
There is no truth, there is only love
We all exist, in the heart of the sun
Track Name: Better Ask Again
Better Ask Again – Written by Matthew Sams

I met you while running away, I used to have some things to say
About life and about love
Your memories in that country song, we share a laugh and sing along out loud
And laugh about love

I put my memories on that shelf, and drink that handle by myself
And laugh at how I used to be
Turn the corner and run some more, I can’t remember what I was looking for
Perhaps, it was only me

“Signs point to yes” I shake it up and ask again
Oh lord, will I survive, “Reply is hazy” better ask again
Better ask again

Wore my heart upon my sleeve, rub my eyes I can’t believe it’s you
Coming back to me
The gas light’s on we’re running low, we’ll watch another T.V. show
I laugh, because it makes you happy

Long ago you stole my heart, I cannot bear to be apart from you
It’s how it’s supposed to be
We skipped some steps, we couldn’t help it, it’s always like we’re on a round trip home
Wherever we may be

“Signs point to yes” I shake it up, and ask again
Oh lord will we survive, “Reply is hazy”, better ask again
Better ask again
