Track Name: Where Your Heart Falls
Take my car and drive all night long
Until you decide where your heart falls
'Cause I've been let down before you came around
So let's make this quick and without a sound

If roses weren't put on graves, I wouldn't be holding ours now
...Letting the thorns prick
'Cause sometimes you need to feel a little pain before the fall
To let you know it is the end

This is turning into a dream
Where the only one not to succeed is me
I often wonder how long it'll take before I'm free
And not depending on your love or company

If holding you didn't send my heart up and my head down
I'd already have left this town
The equisite pain that drags you through hell before turning around
Or giving up on yourself

Would you hold me now
After we hammered our last nail?

So, take my car and drive all night long
Until you find where your heart falls...
Track Name: Always Keep Your Light On
Wake up, breath in. It's enough to begin again
Scrape off yesterdays sin-cerely faults belong to no one.
If only the sun could outshine your love.

So I'm calling out to the hilltops, "Show me tears before I fall!"
And forget to finish this song; before short turns into long.

But always, always keep your light on...
Always, always

My dame is writing her chapters as I'm writing her into mine.
She's a stranger in this line, and we're stuck doing time
Smoke's rolling out the alleys like ghosts from the old 80's movies
I watched back when I was seven, and you were...

Always, always keepin' your light on
always, always keepin' your light on
always, always...

[Outro medley]

Two cigarettes and a breathless chest
I walk under the umbrella of fall.
But without you I don't know why I walk at all.

Always, always keep your light on
Always, always keep your light on
There will be times, you'll be picking out your fight
And I'll be standing beside you
Through every punch and blackened eye
Teeth kicked to the curbside
The flashing lights, the cool reign down on your thunder

giving up the fight, but I will shine on you.
And every night you're sinking down and drowning out, there will be someone feeling the same as you do.

Two cigarettes and a breathless chest
I walk under the umbrella of fall.
But without you I don't know why I walk at all.
