Track Name: Fairy Tales
In my love life, I don't know why
I've been chasing fairy tales ever night
Even though I know its not reality
It's still the truth that holds me

When a child is born, he needs that touch
In just care and silence we know so much,
I'm not asking you to spend your life with me
But I hope you find that love.

Why can't we, why can't we just be?
Because I know
My head's in the clouds.

I'm just dreaming, it's what they like to say,
“You're just wasting, you cast your life away”
But the hard truth is beauty at the least
And you know it won't hide away

Why can't we, why can't we just be?
Because I know
My head's in the clouds.
Because I know
My head's in the clouds.
Track Name: Your Dreams
Early in the morning is a special time
To ride out on the waves and leave the past behind
Late at night, when you're asleep
The witching hour comes and steals my dreams.

You're hiding from your yesterdays
But when you open your eyes...

I hope your dreams can be everything you want them to be

I guess I won't see you for a while
Until I slip away and close my eyes
Walking with the sun inside
And sending you all of my peace of mind.

You're hiding from your yesterdays
Behind the dusky blinds
I hope your dreams can be everything you want them to be

Believe in your dreams
Track Name: Making History
Its a postcard from a place you've never been
You can still see it, its real in your mind's eye
And your every dream

We're just lying down
Why don't you just lay and be, and STOP...
Making history

You're just preaching and teaching our children
To be afraid of love
Leading the way with some old stories from above.

But there's blood in your heart
And you're cutting it off BY...
Making history

Why can't you see, it means nothing to me?
Why can't you see you're just making history?

Its a postcard from a place you've never been
You can still see it, its real in your mind's eye
And your every dream

LOVE it stings like a bee
But FEAR, it eats you and me...
Making history

Why can't you see, it means nothing to me?
Why can't you see you're just making history?
Track Name: Castles
I can't say for sure if I love you
I just can't open my mind,
I can't say for sure if I'll need you
To fill the empty nights.

Deep inside the stolen conversations
Beneath the noise of my ways
There is the sound of hope in a broken voice
That's fading day by day

And I can't find a way to look at love
Without it holding us back
I'm trapped in your castle,
I'm afraid I'll be attacked,
Oh I can't grip, I need more strength than this.

Up in the sky there's a gentle bird
Living one moment at a time
Hold his heart, he'll fly away
Capture him, he'll die.

And I just can't find a way to look at love
Without it holding us back
I'm trapped in your castle,
I'm afraid I'll be attacked,
Oh I can't grip, I need more strength than this.

I keep holding, I keep holding
I keep holding, but now I'm letting go.

Let love grow
I won't lose myself to this.
