Before Their Eyes

Before Their Eyes tracks

Lyrics


1. CITY IS A SNOW GLOBE

I never thought the day would come
When we'd have to say goodbye
But now the time has come
As I wipe the tears from my eyes

Too tired of these lonely nights
I've lost everything
That meant anything
You're still ringing in my ears

And in my dreams
I've tried running but I can't
Escape from you in my memories

It's what kills me slowly
You kill me slowly with the way
I know you won't come back
And I regret everything I said

The city is so cold tonight
It's exactly what I feel inside
I only wish I could ask for
One more chance

It's what kills me slowly
You kill me slowly with the way
I know you won't come back
And I regret everything I said

The city is so cold tonight
It's exactly what I feel inside

It's what kills me slowly
You kill me slowly with the way
I know you won't come back
And I regret everything I said




2. THE NIGHTTIME IS OUR TIME

It's nights like these
That we forget about
Everything that you've ever done
You are the barrel between my teeth
The blood stains on the sheets
Your everything I need (your everything I need)

Tonight's the night
We'll set this on fire right before your eyes
This time we'll get it right

It's days like these that we loose all hope
But the best is yet to come
And I know we're better off
We're better off… alone!!!

The Nighttime Is Our Time




3. YOU TALK A GOOD TIME

You changed the locks but you can't keep us out
Your looks and glances are but useless now

You know you act a fool
And we know exactly who you are
Don't cover up now

It will all come back to you
And knock you right off your feet
You talk a good game

You spin your wheels but you get nowhere fast
Step up, grow up, learn to loose with class

You shut us out, you shut yourselves out too
We can do this with or without you

We see right through you and all of your lies
We wrote this tune so everyone would know

This is the result of the mess that you've made
Turn around now look who's laughing in your face




4. CRAWLING TOWARDS FORGIVENESS

We'll crawl all night
We'll crawl all night
Night

Pick up the pieces
Show us what we're worth
Step up to where we
Left off the last time
It's not over

We'll crawl all night to get to where we
Need to be, we'll give you everything

So we'll take this world on our shoulders
And watch it all fall down
We are today's secrets and tomorrows headlines
So try and stop us now

We'll crawl all night to get to where we
Need to be, we'll give you everything

With blood
And sweat
Hold back your tears

We'll crawl all night to get to where we
Need to be, we'll give you everything
Everything
Everything
With blood and sweat hold back your tears




5. THIS IS REDEMPTION, THIS IS OUR LIVES WASHED CLEAN

Woah, I don't know, how you can forgive me (x4)

This is redemption
This is our lives washed clean

Cover up
All that we've become
Don't let the world
Take the best of you

And I can see a clearing
This will all come to an end
And we'll meet face to face
It will all work out in the end




6. WHY 6 IS AFRAID OF 7

Where are you tonight
I couldn't say goodbye
Your words still echo in my mind
The stars fall down lighting up the sky
If I had one more chance I would have done it right

The sky falls down at your command
The city will roar with the sound of terror
And our world will crumble
At the sound of your voice
So take my words, it's not my choice

There's no looking back
Live for right now
I'm so far away, so far away
With no difference between right or wrong
I'm so far away, so far from you

The sky falls down with a single glance
From your eyes, we walk as strangers in these times
All of what we know is about to end
We'll keep on fighting, but we'll never win

There's no looking back
Live for right now
I'm so far away, so far away
With no difference between right or wrong
I'm so far away, so far from you

Goodbye
Goodbye

So far away, so far away

There's no looking back
Live for right now
I'm so far away, so far away
With no difference between right or wrong
I'm so far away, so far from you

Goodbye




7. THE JOURNEY DOWN SOUTH

So tear these pictures off the wall
So I can forget about yesterday
It's something that I can't forget
about this time,
can't let this break me down

Woah ohhh woah doo doo doo doo
You said that this would be the last time
Woah ohhh woah doo doo doo doo
I can't let this, break me down

I only wish that you could see
How things've turned out now
I don't want this to go away
And I can't change you
There's only one way
And I won't change fate
But it will change you

Woah ohhh woah doo doo doo doo
You said that this would be the last time
Woah ohhh woah doo doo doo doo
I can't let this, break me down

So tear these pictures off the wall
To forget you

You said that this would be the last time
I only wish that you could say, oh no…

Woah ohhh woah doo doo doo doo
You said that this would be the last time

Oh come on

We won't walk in fear, you can't shake us
We won't walk in fear, you can't shake us




8. HOPE IN DEVOTION

(Instrumental)




9. SHOTGUNS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS

I won't forget the day that you went away
But somehow I know you're always here
Close to my heart
I can't believe your gone

It's not over
No we're not done
Let's show the world
Just what we've become
(x2)

I won't forget what you told me
I know you're out there somewhere
Waiting for me any day
This time we won't cut corners
Well do our best to make it
Because we know it's the only way home

So please pray for me
Don't let me go to waste
Pray for me, pray for me

It's not over
No we're not done
Let's show the world
Just what we've become
(x2)

So please pray for me
Don't let me go to waste
Always close to my heart
I still can't believe your gone




10. CLOSE YOUR EYES, IT'S OKAY TO REST NOW

I've lost you somewhere in forever
So lets start this all over
Because all of this seems to familiar
Like the darkness that hides my past
Like the knife you stuck into my back

And this time it feels so right
Lets set the tone tonight
Somehow I've found home
Somehow I've found home again

I might seem lifeless
But I'm not dead
Help me pick up the pieces
So I can find you again

And this time it feels so right
Lets set the tone tonight
Somehow I've found home
Somehow I've found home again

Close your eyes, it's okay to rest now

And this time it feels so right
Lets set the tone tonight
Somehow I've found home
Somehow I've found home again
(x2)
