Track Name: I'm Not Letting Go
Something just feels right
When I look into your eyes
You make me feel like I'm on top of the world and I
I can't explain the signs
That I see when you smile
And that sparkle in your eye that I swear could light up the sky

We don't have to be sure
We don't have to be positive that we're gonna last
As long as we're together it'll feel like forever but
I can hear when you laugh
That we'll be so much more than that and that's a fact
Nothing could ever make me want to leave 'cause
You've got me wrapped around your finger
And I'm not letting go

Anytime you cry
I'll be by your side
You can always count on me like one two three and I'll be
I'll be waiting there
To be there for your care
You can guarantee that I'll never want to leave you alone

We don't have to be sure
We don't have to be positive that we're gonna last
As long as we're together it'll feel like forever but
I can hear when you laugh
That we'll be so much more than that and that's a fact
Nothing could ever make me want to leave 'cause
You've got me wrapped around your finger
And I'm not letting go
Track Name: The Great Storm
I can see the storm moving in from the west
I can feel the heat upon my chest
Something is strange in the way the clouds float my way
I don't think I'm here to stay

So tell my father I love him so
And tell my mother to read my note
Tell them this great storm came and blew me away
I won't be coming back today

Lightning flashes across the sky
The logic in me says "why?"
Why would I leave this place that I've grown to love
I guess I've just had enough

So tell my father I love him so
And tell my mother to read my note
Tell them this great storm came and blew me away
I won't be coming back today
Track Name: Demons
Fear is an apocalyptic atmosphere
One that I hold very dear
To the way that I know I am
Pain is a strange and lonely thing
One that I cannot bear to let be king
Of the actions that show who I am

I'm living in my dreams tonight until I find a better place to hide
I'll run away from these things that knock me down inside
At any given moment I could be up and gone without goodbye
But not tonight
These demons I will fight

Hate a little word with so much weight
It fills our world all over the place
It's gotten out of control
Thirst a place of never ending hurt
I know I've never wanted it more than now
That it's gotten out of control

I'm living in my dreams tonight until I find a better place to hide
I'll run away from these things that knock me down inside
At any given moment I could be up and gone without goodbye
But not tonight
These demons I will fight

Me the worst demon I could see
It's hard to see me looking at me
In the mirror in my room

I'm living in my dreams tonight until I find a better place to hide
I'll run away from these things that knock me down inside
At any given moment I could be up and gone without goodbye
But not tonight
These demons I will fight
Track Name: This
Outside snow is falling in the cold winter world
And inside you can hear the sound of popcorn on the stove
And even though it's mid-day we haven't changed since we woke up this morning
Well how 'bout it babe let's just stay this way and not worry about the running

'Cause All I want is to hold you tight on this December day
To see your face smiling back at me from underneath the sheets
Nothing would please me more right now than to give you a kiss
"Cause I have been waiting my whole life to say that all I want is this

From the stereo you can hear the crackle from the vinyl we play
But you and me together baby can make our own soundtrack for the day
If all you want is to be wrapped up in a cocoon of blankets and warmth
Then look no further I've got you covered and you can bet I'm not letting go

'Cause All I want is to hold you tight on this December day
To see your face smiling back at me from underneath the sheets
Nothing would please me more right now than to give you a kiss
"Cause I have been waiting my whole life to say that all I want is this
Track Name: The Crow
Evil comes to tempt you in more ways than one
But we never know how bad it is 'till the damage is done
A wise man said some years ago to a friend her knew well
He said "Three times you will deny to avoid death of stone"

And you will hear the crow outside singing death is on the way
And no matter how hard you try he won't go away
For the crow is merciless in the way he handles death
To get out with your life you'll have to pay

Today that message is still preserved to remind those who know
That loyalty is worth more than any weight in gold
We all have our moments when we mess up our moral score
But as we try to pay it off the debt gets worse and worse

And we will hear the crow outside singing death is on the way
And no matter how hard we try he won't go away
For the crow is merciless in the way he handles death
To get out with our lives we'll have to pay

Oh I guess it's just as well I'll see you all in hell
It seems that's the way it's going to be
So I'll just hitch a ride on Satan's train of lies
And i'll make my way down in due time

And I will hear the crow outside singing death is on the way
And no matter how hard I try he won't go away
For the crow is merciless in the way he handles death
To get out with my life I'll have to pay

And we will hear the crow outside singing death is on the way
And no matter how hard we try he won't go away
For the crow is merciless in the way he handles death
To get out with our lives we'll have to pay
Track Name: Let You Go
Sharp as a knife and cold as ice
That's never seen the sun before
It hits you like a train and you never learn it's name
And the tracks disappear as it goes

No one's ever quite gotten the sensation right

But I know what you're talking 'bout
That feeling of doubt
That never goes away in the morning
'Cause as the sky turns bright
You're still on my mind
I can't seem to really let you go

It's not just a thought it's a feeling as well
And it comes at the strangest of times
It gets me all emotional and I can't catch a breath
I just wish you'd come back again

No one's ever quite gotten the sensation right

But I know what you're talking 'bout
That feeling of doubt
That never goes away in the morning
'Cause as the sky turns bright
You're still on my mind
I can't seem to really let you go

In the morning I'll catch a train
Back to New York City where I might forget your name
But when I step off at Grand Central station I know
All I'll see is your face
'Cause that's just the way my heart breaks

But I know what you're talking 'bout
That feeling of doubt
That never goes away in the morning
'Cause as the sky turns bright
You're still on my mind
I can't seem to really let you go
