Track Name: What A Rain
What a rain we've come through
Every cloud fell from the sky
Now put those tears behind us
We can heal if we just try

And I will stand by you
And you'll stand by me
Together we are stronger
Stronger than they can believe

Now that the storm is over
There's broken things to mend
But look at us here smiling
The sun is shining once again

And you can lean on me
I will lean on you
Together we are stronger
There's nothing we can't do
And we watched the gloom clear away and the whole sky turn blue

What a rain we've come through
Every cloud fell from the sky
Track Name: A Short Story
It was a thin stretched line tethering your world to mine
And I, I let it go
I'm sorry, I couldn't keep a hold
Couldn't keep a hold or say goodbye

And it's such a shame
Those were lovely days
But the timing was all wrong
And we just weren't that strong
To hang on
What was there to cling to?
I didn't even know you
Now I never will

It was a warm July and we had summer eyes
And hearts to be mended
I'm sorry, it's my fault that it ended
It ended too soon to know

And it's such a shame
Those were lovely days
But the timing was all wrong
And we just weren't that strong
To hang on
What was there to cling to?
I didn't even know you
Now I never will

It was a thin stretched line tethering your world to mine
And I, I let it go

It was a short story, oh I didn't mean it to be
But this is where it ends
Track Name: I Wanna Know
Would it be so difficult to give me some kind of sign?
I've tried to figure you out, but I can't read your mind
Lately I've been seeing this distance in your eyes
But every time I ask, you just tell me that you're fine

But I wanna know
What you're thinking
Before you go
Give me a clue
I wanna know
What's in your head
Cause I'm tired of guessing about you

I've been replaying every word in my head
Analyzing, trying to find what I could have misread
Driving myself crazy, but blaming you for the mess
This web of conversation has too many loose ends

Well I wanna know
What you're thinking
Before you go, give me a clue
I wanna know
What's in your head
Cause I'm tired of guessing about you
Oh I wanna know
Cause something's changing
I can't let it go
So what should I do?
I wanna know
What's going on
Cause I'm tired of guessing about you

I don't think it's too much to ask
To know the truth
Cause I know you well enough to know something's up with you

Well I wanna know
What you're thinking
Before you go, give me a clue
I wanna know
What's in your head
Cause I'm tired of guessing about you
Oh I wanna know
Cause something's changing
I can't let it go
So what should I do?
I wanna know
What's going on
Cause I'm tired of guessing about you

I'm tired of guessing about you
So won't you please give me a clue?
I'm tired of guessing about you
I'm tired of guessing about you
Track Name: August Skies
You are the only one
Who knows what I mean when I say crazy things
You are the only one
Who knows what to say to make it all okay, yeah you are

You helped me up when I'd fallen down
You made me smile when all I could do was frown
You helped me up when I'd fallen down
And you made me smile

And I'm not saying anything
Afraid I might say everything
Cause it's right on the tip of my tongue
When I look into your perfect eyes
Clear and bright as August skies
If it can't be said, it must be sung

You are the only one
Who can make me laugh when I feel like I could crash
You are the only one
Who can make me see all the possibilities, yeah you are

You opened up my heart and my eyes
You were right there even through the hardest times
You opened up my heart and my eyes
And you were right there

And I'm not saying anything
Afraid I might say everything
Cause it's right on the tip of my tongue
When I look into your perfect eyes
Clear and bright as August skies
If it can't be said, it must be sung

You are the only one
You are the only one

And I'm not saying anything
Afraid I might say everything
Cause it's right on the tip of my tongue
When I look into your perfect eyes
Clear and bright as August skies
If it can't be said, it must be sung

You are the only one
You are the only one
You are the only one
You are the only one
Track Name: Beautiful Things Are Going to Find You
You fall down so many times, you get tired of climbing up
And it's hard to see the brighter side, staring at a bone dry cup
It's out of your control
But don't give up hope
Cause beautiful things are going to find you

You wake up from sweet dreams to the nightmare of the day
And spend hours planning out your perfect getaway
Afraid you'll never go
You start to give up hope
But beautiful things are going to find you

I know it seems too far
But you'll make your way through the dark
Light always shines through
When you least expect it to

Beautiful things are going to find you
Beautiful things are going to find you
Beautiful things are going to find you
Track Name: New Favorite Memory
Run up to say hello
It's good to see you
Come and sit by me
Immediately we're lost
In conversation
And there's no place I'd rather be

Cause life can be hard and love can be tough
But I can't see ever giving you up
And if I make you smile, then that makes my day
Cause every minute with you is my new favorite memory

They look at us like we're mad
When they see us laughing
About things they don't understand
And when music's playing
And they stay seated
We'll be the ones to get up and dance

Cause life can be hard and love can be tough
But I can't see ever giving you up
And if I make you smile, then that makes my day
Cause every minute with you is my new favorite memory

And I'll lock each moment safe in my heart
To save for the dreary days when we're apart
But right here, right now, we're together
So smile like it's gonna last forever

Cause life can be hard and love can be tough
But I won't ever let go of you, Love
And if I make you smile, then that makes my day
Cause every minute with you is my new favorite memory

Life can be hard and love can be tough
But I can't see ever giving you up
And if I make you smile, then that makes my day
Cause every minute with you is my new favorite memory

So smile like it's gonna last forever
Track Name: Just One Day
The times I spent with you
They always were the best
And the moments we had together
Were better than the rest
I could be happy anywhere
But it's always better with you there

The clock spins till I'm dizzy
You're here then gone too fast
With life tugging on our sleeves
We try to make each second last
I keep on running everywhere
But it's always better with you there

Just one day was never enough
I always needed more time with you
Just one day didn't give us time
To do the things we wanted to

Right here I'm so content
Standing by your side
You smile and I take
A picture in my mind
If I could stop time and stay here
I'd do it in a heartbeat and always keep you near

Just one day was never enough
I always needed more time with you
Just one day didn't give us time
To do the things we wanted to
Just one day was never enough
I hated saying goodbye to you
Just one day didn't give us time
To do the things we wanted to
The things we wanted to

The world, it turns too fast
The days and seasons pass
The years all fly and time goes by
Just beyond our grasp

Just one day was never enough
I always needed more time with you
Just one day didn't give us time
To do the things we wanted to
Just one day was never enough
I hated saying goodbye to you
But a hundred days couldn't give us time
To do the things we wanted to
The things we wanted to

If I could stop time and stay here
I'd do it in a heartbeat and always keep you near
Track Name: Another Song
The sky is full of clouds and the rain is drizzling down
And it's way too cold to brave the world today
The howling wind sounds mean as it tears through all the trees
So I'll just sit and watch as it blows this storm away
Today

I'm just too tired to get myself together
So I'll just stay inside and write another song about the weather
Just write another song

The sky is full of clouds and the rain is pouring now
And my thoughts are drifting to places far from here
My head is full of dreams of blue skies reflecting on the sea
And I tell myself that the sun is surely shining somewhere
Today

I'm just too tired to get myself together
So I'll just stay inside and write another song about the weather
Just write another song

I'm just too tired, I'm just too tired
I'm just too tired, I'm just too tired
I'm just too tired, I'm just too tired
Today

I'm just too tired, I'm just too tired
I'm just too tired, I'm just too tired
I'm just too tired, I'm just too tired
Today
Track Name: Our Story
We were best of friends
Right from the start
We each had a place
In the other's heart
We hope that it will never end
And we'll never come apart

I always think of
What we want to be
All the plans we have
And the things we'll see
All the silly things we do
They mean so much to me

In our crazy lives
We turn pages too fast
But our story's what we make it
So let's make it last

We've got something real
Something special, something rare
It's in the way we laugh
And in the things we share
And we've got all these pretty dreams
I know we'll make it there

But no matter where we are
Or what obstacles we face
Whatever comes or goes
We will still remain
We'll hold each other up
Even when we're old and grey

In our crazy lives
We turn pages too fast
But our story's what we make it
So let's make it last
And through the twisting plot
We've made it here somehow
Our story's what we make it
And I know we'll make it now

And we'll be best of friends
Right up to the end
We'll be best of friends
