Track Name: Something Less
Crowns, golden jewels, a golden rule
All things pretty.
Time will rust away and make decay
Of this city.

How did we become disarmed by the world’s charm?
I must confess we’ve settled for something less
Why’d we blur the lines, defined by the world’s eyes?
And failed to see that he is everything we need

Kings, empty oaths, prideful boasts,
So deceiving.
Fools, let it go. Don’t you know
The night is thieving?

How did we become disarmed by the world’s charm?
I must confess we’ve settled for something less
Why’d we blur the lines, defined by the world’s eyes?
And failed to see that he is everything we need

Take up all your treasure and toss it in the flames
All the sons and daughters, we’re the ones to blame (x2)

We’ve exchanged heaven (x4)

How did we become disarmed by the world’s charm?
I must confess we’ve settled for something less
Why’d we blur the lines, defined by the world’s eyes?
And failed to see that he is everything we need
Track Name: Find Your Own Way Home
I gave you all I had, a kingdom and a throne
I thought this love would last, don’t leave me here alone
I gave you all my love, but now you’ll walk alone
Forgive my grave mistake, don’t cast my heart to stone

(Instrumental)

All I asked was for you to love me
Find your own way back, why would you betray me

Find your own way home (x2)

I looked into your eyes and saw no good was left
You live to defy, your rage fuels your bloodlust
You’ve abandoned me so I’ll abandon you
You’ll be stripped from your throne... a phantom forced to roam

Find your own way home
(why don’t you close you’re eyes)
Find your own way home
(you don’t have to find out)
Find your own way home
(why don’t you close you’re eyes)
Find your own way home
(you don’t have to find out)

(Bridge - Instrumental)

Find your own way home
(why don’t you close you’re eyes)
Find your own way home
(you don’t have to find out)
Find your own way home
(why don’t you close you’re eyes)
Find your own way home
(you don’t have to find out)


All I asked was for you to love me...
Track Name: More Than You Could Know
Tear down the walls they’re too high to climb
And all you’ve done is lock yourself inside your own heart.
Throw me a rope or a line and I’ll find a way to get to you.
You can’t keep me, you can’t keep me outside.

Go away my dear, you won’t find me here.
There’s nothing you can do to bring me back to you.

I can’t wait for you. No -
I won’t simply let this go
‘Cause I love you
More than you could know

Could you let go? Please don’t break the door down.
I’m not ready to let you see that I’m not enough, I’m not enough, I’m not enough for you.
I’ll only disappoint you. So you should go before I let you down,
But do you you really love me as you say?

Turn off the lights they’re too bright to see you behind
All I want is to look into Your life with mine
But darling can’t you see. You mean everything. You’re all I want and more.
You’re worth more than you could ever dream.

I can’t wait for you. No -
I won’t simply let this go
‘Cause I love you
More than you could know

(Instrumental build to Outro)

I love you
More than you could know
Track Name: Kings
Ten thousand soldiers came
To take my love away
I turned to stand and fight
But I could not hold her tight... enough

Hold on till the night is done
Stand strong till the battle's won
Don’t you let me fall

My eyes lead me to fear
but I could not leave her here
I marched to face this king
Frozen... my feet keep moving

Hold on till the night is done
Stand strong till the battle's won
Don’t you let me fall
Don’t you let me fall

(Instrumental Bridge)

Oh... (x2)

Hold on till the night is done
Stand strong till the battle's won

Oh... (x4)

“Take your final bow, oh king,”
Sang the streets below.
And I held my love so close to me
that I could hear her breathing...
Track Name: Giants
They said I was to young, that I was not enough
They said that I could not win, that it would end our love
Still talking at me but not looking in my eyes
They filled my heart with empty lies

But then someone kneeled and kissed my cheek.
He said never lose your own heart, nor forget to speak
Sometimes we have to learn to survive
With just a spark of hope that ignites your whole life

Oooo...

Then something in our strength overcame
It was not of ourselves or even tame
The mountains trembled beneath our feet
But there were no more giants to defeat

Oooo...

If only we could realize our worth
Then even giants would fall at our words
We’re worth more than we could ever dream
We’re worth more than we could ever dream
Track Name: Stay, Don't Go
We could stay here and wait for dawn
But sometimes the night seems too long
When the crooks of your heart don’t end
Please trust me if you can

Oooo...

We could walk blind hand in hand
Stay intwined if we can
But I see the wonder in your eyes
Now I know why you can’t sleep at night

Stay, don’t go (x4)
Oh, take it slow
Breathe in, breath out
Let it go.
You must know.
That I love you so
Let’s stroll the dark
We might find who we are

We could walk blind hand in hand
Stay intwined if we can
But a thousand forgotten knights
Creep up in your eyes

Stay, don’t go (x4)
Oh, take it slow
Breathe in, breath out
Let it go.
You must know.
That I love you so
Let’s stroll the dark
We might find who we are

You’ll see me standing there,
You don’t always need
A light to see, a light to see (x4)

You’ll see me standing there,
You don’t always need
A light to see me through the dark
