Track Name: Fall Song
Changing shades like the colors of these leaves
Building up a kind of wall of constancy
Knowing that they're still a part of me
Though I know deep down it's only ever you

Mornings filled with white walls, showers turned to flakes
In the lukewarm water, praying for your sake
While all the while, trying to stay awake
But you let me sleep

You find me on the ground
Face down
Though sometimes I stand in awe of it all
What?
I forgot what I just saw

Is it true that the only time I see
Is when you pull the rug right out from under me?
Did you hurt my soul?
Are the things I choose to make
Only echoes of the love I take
Love I'm bound to break
'Cause my flesh is weak

You find me on the ground
Face down
Though sometimes I stand in awe of it all
What?
I forgot what I just saw

Sometimes
I can
I can
Lead myself down down down down down down down down down down
You lead me on
I've been
I've been
Searching
Searching
High and low
But my night
Night
Night
Night
Remains your dawn

You find me on the ground
Head down
Though sometimes I stand in awe of it all

You find me on the ground
Head down
Though sometimes I stand in awe of it all
Of it all
Of it all

Track Name: How Am I To Feel?
April, May, they go by so fast
Blink - the summer's gone and it's fall at last
Now the snow is falling on the grass
But I still can't tell you time has passed

How am I to feel?

Four-day forecast: all cloudy
But not for all. No, it's just for me
When the clouds move, well, what's left to see?
I wonder if I should be here at all

How am I to feel?

Someday soon life will rebegin
Like a kid outside playing until when
Mom yells "dinner time!" But until then
I still will ask this one question

How am I to feel?
How am I to feel?
Track Name: Reach Out
When you go through a day
And the things that people say
They make you feel so small
They make you feel that your heart will just never stop aching
And when you just can't accept the abuse you are taking
Darling

Reach out for me
Don't you worry
I'll see you through
You just have to
Reach out for me
I'll be there and
I'll comfort you
Oh yes, I will
Comfort you and love you
How I'm gonna love you

When good friends prove untrue
And the things they do to you
They make you feel so bad
They make you feel that you haven't a reason for living
So when you feel you could throw in the towel and just give in
Darling

Reach out for me
Don't you worry
I'll see you through
You just have to
Reach out for me
I'll be there and
I'll comfort you
Oh yes, I will
Comfort you and love you
Oh, how I'm gonna love you

They make you feel so small
They make you feel that your heart will just never stop aching
And when you know that you can't accept the abuse you are taking
Darling

Reach out for me
Don't you worry
I'll see you through
You just have to
Reach out for me
I'll be there and
I'll comfort you
Oh yes, I will
Comfort you and love you
Oh, how I'm gonna love you, you
