Track Name: After All This Time
In the dawn of my reflections,
down the road that I used to roam
When I had not a friend to call my name,
and my time was spent alone
You lit up my path like a burst of light,
and I’d tell ya if you were around
I hate to say that after all this time,
I only miss you now

What adventures we’ve had, oh they’ve come and gone,
what I’d give if you gave them again
I’ll play them through my head, while you instead,
forget them in England or Spain
I can hear your voice like a harmony,
but it always seems to drown out mine
I hate to say I’ve only missed you now,
after all this time

Why, go? Look what you’ve left behind,
this screaming voice of mine,
Saying, why, go? I know you’ll find love ahead,
but that’s not what I meant

Now I know I just can’t stay, I think I’ll head out West tonight
Still there’s nothing left to say, to you,
but we both know that’s alright,
Though I lost my muse, now I’ve got a friend,
And she’s wonderful the same,
Even if we start, to drift apart, and forget each other’s name,
Oh how bittersweet, is losing dreams,
but what I’d give if you gave it again
After all this time, I’ve realized,
love means the most in the end.
Track Name: This Too Shall Pass
Hopeless, laying scattered on the bathroom floor
Walking down an empty street, just to breathe a little more
No one could really comprehend, or mend,
all the things that you lack
But I know for a fact, this too shall pass.
But I know for a fact, this too shall pass.

All the hurricanes, and pouring rain inside my head
It’s hard to stay on course, when everything starts to crash
Seems so easy sometimes, to just lay down and die
But I know for a fact, this too shall pass...
But I know for a fact, this too shall pass.

Twilight, what a fine night, oh, to lay it all to waste
Broken, have you really lost all the battles that you have faced?
Your tragedy with gravity has blinded you from everything,
from all the love that you've yet to embrace
But I know for a fact, this too shall pass.

All the hurricanes, and pouring rain inside my head
It’s hard to stay on course, when everything starts to crash
Seems so easy sometimes, to just lay down and die
But I know for a fact, this too shall pass...
But I know for a fact, this too shall pass.

Seems so easy sometimes, to just lay down and die
But I know for a fact, this too shall pass...
But I know for a fact, this too shall pass.
Track Name: Smoke Killed The Atmosphere (Of Love)
My girl and I, sat on the step
Enjoyin our time, the view from the house,
and the woods in front of it
The breeze was cool but her arms were warm, on that summer night
As I leaned in for a peck, something I didn't expect,
caught the corner of my eye

Then smoke killed the atmosphere of love (x4)

Like a bullet, I shot towards the flame
A blaze so hot, and with no one round to blame
The smoke it choked me all of a sudden, I was foggy eyed
and couldn't see nothin' the same
I laid on the ground and looked up to the sky
There was multiple figures then I figured why
They all seemed to yell my name.... because

Smoke killed the atmosphere of love (x4)

If there's one thing I can promise you
The hottest fires burn inside, and that's the truth
So don't abandon your love for your foolish pursuits,
Or you'll be pushin' daisies up from under the roots
Take it from the one who knows what smoke can do... cause

Smoke killed the atmosphere of love (x4)


Smoke killed the atmosphere of love (x6.5)


Background Vocals:
Oooooo, Ooooooo (x∞)
