    Flying

    (Wasik/Veres)
    The tops of the trees are under me
    Gravity"s not pulling me down
    I can hear myself way up in the clouds
    with no one else around

    And there's no more fear when I can soar
    And the ground's not under my feet anymore
    because I am flying

    The night air is sharp as I near to the moon
    She gives her power to me
    Now I can touch the light of a dying star
    Grace is all that I see

    And there's no more fear when I can soar
    And the ground's not under my feet anymore
    because I am flying

    Air lifts up
    The traveler breathes
    Night brings clarity
    When light breaks through I awake in my bed
    Was it all a dream? 

    And there' s no more fear when I can soar
    And the ground's not under my feet anymore
    because I am flying

    Eventually

    (Tanno)
    I heard him say that he was leaving
    And it took some time to get what he meant
    It's not as if he's packing his bags
    and heading on a trip saying he'll be back
    No, this has nothing to do with geography

    He's not leaving town no, he's leaving me
    I think I'll take that personally
    He's not leaving town, no he's leaving me
    Oh I'll be fine, Eventually

    It only took threes days of crying
    Friends say I'm better off anyway
    but I know they're lying
    What happened to the guy they said
    Was a winner, a keeper, I could not do better
    How quickly it seems they've changed their tune

    He's not leaving town no, he's leaving me
    I think I'lll take that personally
    He's not leaving town, no he's leaving me

    Oh I'll be fine, Eventually

    Most hours of the day go by
    It only really hurts after eight o'clock at night
    He's not leaving town no, he's leaving me
    I think I'll take that personally
    He's not leaving town, no he's leaving me
    Oh I'll be fine, Eventually

  • 04:35 Story Lyrics
    Do You Ever Cry?

    (Veres)
    You gave your love when I was just a girl
    You asked for nothing in return except the love of just one girl
    So much love so fast
    To think I let you fly
    You spread your wings with no look back
    Now look who's left to cry

    Golden hair with an angel's smile
    Morning blossom sun
    Those summer nights away we would while
    It slipped away so fast
    A thousand dreams belied
    Do thoughts of me come to you anymore?
    And do you ever cry?

    Remember how we'd laugh
    Now tears they fill my eyes
    Do you ever laugh anymore?
    Or ever wonder why?
    And do you ever cry?

    Like I do in the middle of the night when I'm all alone
    thinking of you, without me there
    I love you so, I miss you more than words can ever say

    This Very Road

    (Tanno)

    I've been down this very road now three times
    I recognize each landmark here and every sign
    But just because it's familiar that doesn't make it mine

    Duration of love, well it varies and it dies
    But it's the degree of that variation I analyze and analyze
    But to ask him now what he's thinking that would betray his eyes

    But I, I forget to start at the beginning
    I find that I work my way back from the end
    Oh it's like I'm trying to get in all my missing
    before the real heartache begins

    So I'm in black for something that still survives 
    I'm blinding my heart to moments it's entitled
    I question when he's near me how soon he will be gone

    But I, I forget to start at the beginning
    I find that I work my way back from the end
    Oh it's like I"m trying to get in all my missing
    before the real heartache begins

    I assume that heartache is a given
    Although I know that that's no way to do my living

    I've been down this very road now three times
    You think by now I'd take the one less traveled by

    Mistaken Tomato Blues

    (Veres)
    You know I saw you looking at me
    You threw your smile across the room
    But I'm not catching pretty smiles tossed my way
    My back's to you

    I don't need no soft good mornings
    I don't want no long goodnights
    I don't need a better half to make me whole
    This I say, so I may set you right

    Now don't be disappointed
    It's better that I let you know 
    You're wasting all your time on a fool like me
    But I'm not fooling so

    Keep your eyes away from my window
    Keep your little feet outside my door
    Don' want to find a billet-doux In my letter box
    How you say, s'il vous plait, au revoir P

    lease don't take this all to heart
    It's not what I meant for you
    But I wish you'd take a powder now sweetheart
    'Cause you're on a quest without a clue

    So stay away from my window
    Don't waste those pretty little eyes on me 
    'Cause I'm not bitin' baby on your little hook
    You've been looking at the wrong fish mistakenly

    And I think I oughta tell ya that you're wrong
    if you think you had me
    Well excuse me for reiterating
    But you're wrong and you've never been wronger
    If you think your pretty face could catch me

    He Shines

    (Veres)

    He shines like the brightest star up in the sky
    At night and I will follow him
    This time I will never stop until
    He’s mine so I will follow him

    Now I don’t claim to need that boy
    I’ve come this far on my own
    But I’m not ashamed to need that boy
    He’s like no one I’ve known

    So I’ll try to convince him now thatwe can fly away to anywhere

    Now I don’t claim to need that boy
    I’ve come this far on my own
    But I’m not ashamed to need that boy
    He’s like no one I’ve known

    He shines like the brightest star up in the sky
    At night and I will follow him

    I Remember

    (Tanno)

    I remember childhood nights talking on the phone
    Giggling beneath the covers so my parents wouldn't know
    And I remember hanging up for sleep
    thinking this is the happiest I'll ever be

    I remember the day he touched my hand in the hall
    Events before and after I never can recall
    But oh, how he made my heart go weak
    I thought this is the happiest I'll ever be

    And I remember summer nights before we all left home
    Hangin' out past midnight and cruising top down
    I could feel my hair out in the breeze
    I thought this is the happiest I'll ever be

    But isn't it amazing how surprising life can be?

    I remember moving to the city on my own
    That first day of springtime when I finally felt home
    And I remember stopping in the street
    I thought this is the happiest I'll ever be

    But now reliving all these memories
    Well this may be the happiest
    We'll wait and see

    'Cause isn't it amazing how surprising life can be?

    The Day Unfolds

    (Tanno/Veres)

    Slow breeze, fast truck
    a taxi cab, the rising sun
    and me on the road

    Tired eyes, coffee in hand
    But so thrilled with my travel plan
    Let the day unfold

    I've been too much at home
    I'm unsettled unless I roam

    No map, no loss
    I'm more bold each bridge I cross
    I'm happy alone

    Lunch time, small town
    Plenty of smiles to go around
    I add my own

    I've been too much at home
    I'm unsettled unless I roam

    Wanderlust beckons, I"m sure to listen
    There may be life out there I'm missing
    It's my best study, city to city
    I think they've all got something on me

    Slow breeze, fast truck
    a taxi cab, the setting sun
    and me on the road

    A Lullabye

     (Veres/Tanno)

     

    Now the day is done
    Kiss goodnight the sun
    Fade to blue, night's begun

    The moon slips into place
    Casts shadows 'cross my face
    Fireflies state their case

    I wonder why the dark of night
    Takes me to a time
    Of bittersweet simplicity
    Of fairy-tale and rhyme

    Every now and then
    When wishing for a friend
    I find a star and pretend
