about

Souls diverge. Fires dim. Tides wash away the earth where we once stood. This winter knows no mercy. I am fragile now in this affliction.
Stuck In Transition, I surrender

Track Name: In Transition
Fragile in this affliction
I am stuck in transition

Empty days longing for lost embrace
Waiting to change
It’s just over the horizon…
Keep lying to yourself

Tomorrow never comes
Tomorrow never comes

Fragile in this affliction
I am stuck in transition

Sinking into bitterness
I hold my tongue and I clench my fist
Just wait here she’ll find you
Keep crying out for help
Jealousy gets the best of me

Tomorrow never comes
Tomorrow never comes

Fragile in this affliction
I am stuck in transition
(Empty days longing for lost embrace
Waiting to change)
Track Name: Longing Tides
Back to the beginning
At the water’s edge
Nostalgic wind upon my face
Memories scattered in the sand
They’re right where I left them; they’re right where I left them

I’m taken by the ocean
Pure energy in motion
Tides longing for the shore
Reach out and fall back again
I wish she could stay; I wish she could stay

Closer, closer I feel you
My heart like the tides
I reach out and fall back again

I drift with the ocean
Doubting love, losing focus
I’m gasping for air but you’re not there
I drown alone
Apathy washes over me
I wish she could stay
But we go alone our separate ways

There is only now, all there’ll ever be
Precious moments, the silence in between
Tomorrow never comes
Tomorrow never comes

Closer I feel you
This distance brings us…
(Tides longing for the shore
Reach out and fall back again)
Distance brings us...

Closer, closer I feel you
My heart like the tides
I reach out and fall back again
Track Name: The Water's Edge
Back to the beginning
At the water's edge
Track Name: Coast to Coast
Coast to coast, coming home
Counting the days, but they move so slowly
I Cling to summer reveries
They keep me warm

Where are you now?
You could not meet me
Where are you now?
I shiver in disbelief

Coast to Coast you're on your own
My grip around a heart-shaped stone
But it's not enough to keep you warm
It's not enough

Where are you now?
You could not meet me
Where are you now?
I shiver in disbelief

Colors seem to fade
Spiraling into winter woes
Devotion gone astray
Forsaken and forgotten

Spiraling into winter woes
Track Name: Departed
Shallow breaths in frigid air
White fog against a black sky
Numb hands, pulsing chest
I can run no further

I turn to face the wind,
The harsh truth, the stinging cold
This flowing river has frozen over
I can wait no longer

We have departed
Winter has started

I can run no further
I can wait no longer

Time has come and gone still ash remains
Precious moments will turn to pain
I am fragile now in this affliction
Stuck in transition I surrender

I surrender

We have Departed
Winter has started
Track Name: Afterglow
There is only love when bitterness decays
A burning fire fills these empty days
I breathe in the embers
Tomorrow will never come still I awake
I am Freedom I am Fire, I will find my place
Track Name: Dark Night of the Soul Pt. II
Wide-eyed, eager gazing into the sun
Yearning for the golden light
I have lost sight, I have lost sight

Timid, ashamed playing with fire
Trying to tame it in my clutch
I have lost touch, I have lost touch

Please try to understand
This isn't who I am
This is the end

I have lost course tripping over vague promises whispered with gentle words
I have lost taste holding piercing rage against my tongue with baneful grace

Won't you Please try to understand
This isn't who I am
This is the end of this life,
a sick and sorry plight,
I'll die this death with eyes wide open

Hope fades Again the past unravels and the truth sinks in
I alone am the bringer of this storm
Fickle and afraid hiding in the tempest of a tortured soul

I die this death with eyes wide open
I die this death alive


This love is alive
