Track Name: My Hero
When you say,
that it's all okay,
do you mean it?
Or is it something you say?

When day turns gray,
will you stay?

When I'm down to zero,
will you be my hero?
Or just a zero.

Back to the start,
of this broken heart,
now in pieces,
torn apart.
Misery,
is part of life's history,
on this quest to live happily.

When I'm down to zero,
will you be my hero?

Throughout this broken road,
will you be there?
And forget all that you've been told.
When my light of day turns gray,
with the smoke of this decay,
will you be there?
Be there to stay?
When you say it's okay,
do you mean it?
Or is it just something you say?
Back to the start,
of this broken heart,
now in pieces,
torn apart.
Track Name: I'm Here
I’m Here:
When time runs out between you and me,
when this road becomes too hard to see,
you'll know exactly how to be,
so let go and start being free.

'Cause i'll be here,
I'm here.

I can see the sadness in you eyes,
a loving reflection worth a thousand cries,
they say happiness comes with time, so leave this world with a smile.
Please leave this world smilin'.

'Cause i'll be here.
I'm here.

Let go and start bein' free.
Reach out and break away from this tree.
'Cause you don't need me.
'Cause you don't need me.
Track Name: Dreamer
They say write like a reader,
and read like a thinker,
so I think like a believer,
'cause I believe I am a dreamer,
'cause I believe I am a dreamer.

I'll sing like a poet,
but I won't let myself know it,
for interpretation lies within a believer,
and I believe I am a dreamer.

So let imagination fly.
And think, think beyond your own mind.
And keep, keep your head held high.
And don't, don't stop at the sky.
Track Name: The Beginning to the End
So it begins,
the end of this consciousness,
the end to this segment,
the beginning to the end.

Let it fall,
down in front of them all,
straight into the great big wall,
make them feel tall.

When day fades away.

I'll climb up.
Reach straight for the top.
Retrace all that's been lost.
Wash away my broken thoughts.
Then i'll reach higher,
and fuel that inner fire,
with the thought of this entire,
beginning to end our desires.

In this sea,
where life's all blue and serene,
where feelings are secondary,
will I turn out to be,
just another,
one person's discover,
hooked in by my own endeavor,
to become a little bit stronger.

I'll climb up.
Reach straight for the top.
Retrace all that's been lost.
Wash away my broken thoughts.

So it begins,
the end of this consciousness,
the end to this segment,
the beginning to the end.

Let it fall,
down in front of them all,
straight into the great big wall,
make them feel tall.

I'll climb up.
Reach straight for the top.
Retrace all that's been lost.
Wash away my broken thoughts.
Then i'll reach higher,
and fuel that inner fire,
with the thought of this entire,
beginning to end our desires.
