Track Name: Matter of Time
Tired of waving goodbye
You kept out of sight
Lost in confusion
Still I don't know why
You covered your eyes
Is it just an illusion?
Well I know

It's just a matter of time
Just a matter of time
Before you give it a try
Just a matter of finding the way to your heart
And the way to your mind
I just want to show you
I've got so much love inside of me
Unlock these dreams that I keep buried
Deep inside the heart of me

I spent my days half asleep
Lost in a dream
But I'm ready to wake up
Your smile came out of nowhere
This could be a sign
Something's ready to shake up
Well I know

It's just a matter of time
Just a matter of time
Before you open your eyes
Just a matter of finding the way to your heart
And the way to your mind
I just want to show you
I've got so much love inside of me
Unlock these dreams that I keep buried
Deep inside the heart of me

Ohh
It gets so hard
To see you pass me by
All I want is to be alone with you tonight

It's just a matter of time
Just a matter of time
Before you open your eyes
Just a matter of finding the way to your heart
It's just a matter of time
I just want to show you
I've got so much love inside of me
Unlock these dreams that I keep buried
Deep inside the heart of me

I just want to show you
I've got so much love inside of me
Unlock these dreams that I keep buried
Deep inside the heart of me

It's just a matter of time
It's just a matter of time
It's just a matter of time
Track Name: Sunrise
I've got to reach you
I've got to see you
Let the light shine down on me
When the day breaks
And the sky is changing colors
Into something new
I want to see it with you

Sunrise
I want to see you again
Promise that you'll always stay
Sunrise
When the world is brand new
I want to see it with you

I want to touch you
I want to make you feel
Like you're the only one
In this world for me
I want to hold you
I want to make you see
That yesterday was long ago
And soon it will be

Sunrise
I want to see you again
Promise that you'll always stay
Sunrise
When the world is brand new
I want to see it with you

Cause I'm not ready to let this end
We can say all the sorries in the world
And still be friends
There's nothing I want more
Than flying home
Just to meet you

Sunrise
I want to see you again
Promise that you'll always stay
Sunrise
When the world is brand new
I want to see it with you
Track Name: Shame
Shame

I can hardly say the words
The truth has found me out
You would always lift me up
Well I have let you down
I tried to hold it in
Mistakes I hid were so real

I'm retracing every step
To see what I did wrong
I can't look you in the eye
For fear of what I've done
My world is closing in
While your faith disappears

Every single word I ever said
Is going round in my head
We can't go back to how we used to be
And I don't get no rest
Because shame won't let me be (won't let me be)
Shame won't let me be

Everything was easy then
And you made me feel at home
Now I have to let you go
And I'm standing here alone
I miss those carefree days
But trouble was soon on its way

I'm sorry
It tears me apart
That I hurt you
I've broken your heart
I must leave here
Don't try to find me
I'll be leaving soon
It's all I can do
Because shame won't let me be
Track Name: Overboard
I was driftng before I found you
I had no place to call my own
Life was passing me down the water
I was heading for the break alone

I don't worry
Things are fine
There's no hurry
You're right on time

I get carried away
It's a feeling I never knew
And when I'm in your arms I go overboard
I don't want it to end
I can't stay away from you
You make me fall so deep I go overboard

When the sky opened up and cried
All my hopes and dreams were bent
It was you who opened up my eyes
Made me want to live again

I don't worry
Things are fine
There's no hurry
You're right on time

It's a feeling I never knew
And when I'm in your arms I go overboard
I don't want it to end
I can't stay away from you
You make me fall so deep I go overboard

You have been nothing but good for me
I don't want you leaving
You are the best thing to come my way
Baby believe it
Track Name: Where I Stand
I've got my eye
There on the skyline
Where I can see
The beauty below
Caught in a whirlwind
Chasing the landscape
Telling myself I don't wanna go because
I know where I stand
I know where I stand
When I feel you take hold of my hand
I know where I stand
Sometimes it's hard
To look at you
To see all the things we're going through
Maybe it's time
For us to part
To say our goodbyes and
Leave in the dark because
I know where I stand
I know where I stand
When I feel you take hold of my hand
I know where I stand
I never thought I'd get over
Losing something
That meant so much to me
It turns out I never lost you at all
You're right here
In my heart
I know where I stand
I know where I stand
When I feel you take hold of my hand
I know where I stand
