Track Name: Absence
Absence

Written by: Brad Shaw - The Silent Partner

So this is the end, has it left you reeling?
I can still pretend that it's you I'm feeling
And its alright, well I'm fine; I'll make it, I'm okay now
So are you still pure, beautiful, loving and true?

Your kiss drips from my tongue
I wasn't ready for this

CHORUS

I will start again
As sad as this may seem
I feel your absence here
I see you in my dreams

Brown eyes, are you there?
Are you looking backwards?
I am still aware, that it's you I'm after

And it alright, well I'm fine; I'll make it, I'm okay now
So are you still pure, beautiful, loving and true?
Your kiss drips from my tougue

CHORUS

And I will stay right here for now
I will stay right here…
Stay right here for now
Your kiss drips from my tongue
Track Name: Out of Here
Two men looking out the window
Dream of something more
One is broken, wants to run away
Settle his scores
The other one seeks compensation
For the times lost that can’t be returned
Both are searching for answers they can’t find where they are

PRECHORUS
They decided there’s no looking back
Only place for them to turn was the future
And when everyone was laughing
They folded their arms and kept on walking
For they knew that it wasn’t life or death
But believed in their own predestination

CHORUS
Let’s get out, out of here
I wanna get out, out of here
Let’s get out, out of here
I wanna get out, out of here

VERSE 2
Two months later they were on their way to somewhere else
Left behind friend and family, so insanely longing for something else
Both of them will face persecution for the things that they want to believe
There is no assurance from anywhere that they will succeed

PRECHORUS 2
“Don’t do it” said their friends at home
Save your heart for something a little wiser
For they knew not what they say or do
Only that they longed for something better
But their hearts and minds were already made up,
They packed and left the very next morning

CHORUS
Let’s get out, out of here
I wanna get out, out of here
Let’s get out, out of here
I wanna get out of here

BRIDGE
And everything they said was oh so incomplete
They’ll look into your eyes and say follow your dreams
And though the road they chose was a harsh untraveled trail
Both of them had passion and courage enough to try and fail

CHORUS
Track Name: Fall Away
Fall Away

Written by: Brad Shaw - The Silent Partner

Sometimes at night, when angels fly and devils play
It feels so right that I don't know what to say
I'll admit I was not pure of heart
But Anne Marie, now's a good time for new starts

CHORUS

Small little world, large little sky
It falls away from here
All you admit, and all you deny
It falls away from here
So much to do and so much to say
So little time to fear
What is to come and what will not stay
It fall away from here, always fall away for somebody

When morning breaks, the blinds bend to the break of day
But you lie alone and slowly waste away
I'll admit, I was not all I seemed
But Anne Marie, we all have our own dreams

CHORUS

Small little world, large little sky
It falls away from here
All you admit, and all you deny
It falls away from here
So much to do and so much to say
So little time to fear
What is to come and what will not stay
It fall away from here, always fall away for somebody

I'll admit, I was not all I seemed
But Anne Marie, now's a good time for new dreams...
Track Name: Release
Release

Written by: Brad Shaw - The Silent Partner

It's not right to fight
We have no reason to suffer
And there's no time to find
Another reason to love her

So have you decided
Or will I have to face this on my own?
My reasons aren't right but
I just don't want to face this all alone
So breathe in...and breathe out.

CHORUS

Release it on to me
Release it on to me
You're right on time
And the things we said before
Don't matter at this time
Don't matter anymore
We'll leave it all behind

And when I look inside
I find more pain than I can handle
But you're just fine
You've tried with all your heart to make me level

So have you decided
Or will I have to face this on my own?
My reasons aren't right but
I just don't want to face this all alone
So breathe in...and breathe out.

CHORUS

These people scream "My life, my life!"
But what can I control when it's not even my own...
Track Name: Hold On
Hold On

Written by: Brad Shaw - The Silent Partner

Say goodbye one more time
Before you go again.
Because it won't be too long before
She says, it's all the same.
She says, it's all the same

People crying all the time
For the loss of friend
And everytime I turn around I see
It's all the same,
I see it's all the same.

This isn't quite the world I knew once before,
I suppose we all could use some change
And every time I walk back out my front door,
Well it all looks the same.

Rain is falling from the sky
Once again, you feel ashamed
These tears are falling from your eyes and he cries it's all the same,
He cries, it's all the same.

Hold On...

This isn't quite the world I knew once before,
I suppose we all could use some change
And every time I walk back out my front door,
Well it all looks the same.

Say goodbye one more time
Before you go again.
Because it won't be too long before
She says, it's all the same.
She says, it's all the same

Hold On...
