Track Name: November '97
I'll never forget the day I came home
And saw her sitting there all alone
Burned in my head a memory
Of what could have been between you and me

I was much too young to know what happened
I couldn't handle any of it back then
And all that I want to say
Is I wish you were here with me today

After that it's all just a blur
I couldn't remember until I heard
Mom tell a story about
What I couldn't figure out

I was much too young to know what happened
I couldn't handle any of it back then
And all that I want to say
Is I wish you were here with me today


Since then twelve years have gone by
And every September that goes by
Your memory will never die
My only regret is, I never got to say goodbye

I was much too young to know what happened
I couldn't handle any of it back then
And all that I want to say
Is I wish you were here with me today

September 13th
Doomed from the start
You were taken too soon
We were torn apart
Track Name: .
This sinking feeling is weighing me down
It's brought me to my knees
I'm trembling, I'm shaking, I'm breaking, I'm breaking
My heart's beating out of my chest.

I still remember that day
How could I forget
The Earth stood still
My future set

I've never been faced with something so impossible
But nothing ever felt so natural
I watched these walls collapse before my eyes
I watched the sun rise, a new dawn breathed life on a new man

I still remember that day
How could I forget
The Earth stood still
My future set

I watched the sun rise
A new dawn breathes life on a new man
And after all we've been through
I can't let go of you
Track Name: Things Past
A broken heart and a confused mind
Looking for solace of any kind
I just want relief is all he said

Hiding behind closed doors
And an empty mind
There's no safety here
He left everything behind

It made sense inside his head
This life he lead

He doesn't want to forgive
He just wants to forget
The ones he loves are the ones that he'll neglect
Unhappy with what he's dealt
And what he's been given
Being numb is the only thing that makes this life worth living

Watching his future blow away
Through the smoke and haze
No ambition just a longing
To pass the days

He can't recognize himself anymore
He looks at himself and thinks "What have I become."

It made sense inside his head
This life he lead
Track Name: Things Present
It's never too late to stand up
It's never too late to make a change
To realize this is not where
Or who you wanted to be
It's never to late to stand up
It's never to late to say no
To a choice you don't believe in
And live life on your own terms

If you wake up in a cold sweat and realize this is someone else's life
You find yourself stuck in and you're no longer wearing your own skin
It's never to late to stand up for yourself and live life on your own terms
And resurrect this passion you once felt.
