Lyrics

Best of Days

Written By: Erik Alesi

Holding the things that will tear you apart The treasures belong, The stories are gone Leftover thoughts from a life lived before A picture of you attached to the door But you did it all It's nobodies fault It's the price we pay For the best of days, It's the best of days Maybe it's lost in a capsule of time Under the ground But somehow it's found Taken by one that's made up from thin air Imagined by you, And devil-may-care But you did it all It's nobodies fault It's the price we pay For the best of days It's the best of days, days Been long on the short end of things And you're spinning it out of control It's a wasted movement, Starting to get old I've made that mistake here before And I'll try to diffuse, I know that I'll lose, I'll lose But you did it all It's nobodies fault, You're doing it all It's the price we pay For the best of days In the worst of ways It's the price we pay For the best of days, days, days

The Forfeiture of Life

Written By: Erik Alesi

What more can I say It's all been said like this before Help had arrived As I was walking out the door But it's quite alright, The forfeiture of life Got myself some motivation to get it done tonight There's so much to do But I'll be better off in the end I'm taking my time precisely planning it out again And it's quite alright, The forfeiture of life Got myself some motivation to get it done tonight, tonight There's a cryptic sign that's waiting around the bend

Change My Mind

Written By: Erik Alesi

Don't be afraid to say what you wanted to say an hour ago It might make a change in the way that you thought I'd behave, Or maybe it wont But one thing's for certain as I pull the curtain To look at the end of the day There'll be no tomorrow as long as we borrow The time that we've given away So stand up, Speak with conviction And make every word relevant I'll sit still, And listen intently As you change my mind once again The sight of you leaving would make me believe in A world where compassion is void I'll lift up the veil to see what's revealed And all of those thoughts are destroyed I may be mistaken by thinking the way to your heart Is easily attained But I can't control the flood of emotions as you change my mind once again So stand up, Speak with conviction And make every word relevant I'll sit still, And listen intently As you change my mind once again I see the look in your eyes, You're changing my mind again Though it's a clever disguise, You'll never surprise a friend Don't be afraid to say what you wanted to say an hour ago Just stand up, Speak with conviction And make every word relevant I'll sit still, And listen intently As you change my mind once again, As you change my mind once again

A Life Restored

Written By: Erik Alesi

Peering back into the open sky I left you in the big town And now you're asking why? There's a thought that creeps up in my mind But if I were to tell you, I'd only waste my time Then I realize it's happening again Imagine a new life It's there for the taking Just picture the progress The ground we'd be breaking Try to imagine a life restored Look ahead, I'm only counting days Figuring it's pointless, It's always been that way Content is never how we'll feel If all we do is worry about an even keel Then I realize it's happening again Imagine a new life It's there for the taking Just picture the progress The ground we'd be breaking Try to imagine a life restored Then I realize it's happening again Imagine a new life It's there for the taking Just picture the progress The ground we'd be breaking Imagine a new life It's there for the taking Just picture the progress The plans that we're making Try to imagine a life restored

Into the World

Written By: Erik Alesi

I would really like to go to a place that you might know Follow me right through this door You really ought to go... There's a way to make it through I can show you what to do You'll just ask And I'll reply You really ought to go Out into the world you're nobodies girl Don't wait any longer to go out into the night, nobodies right It might make you stronger I would really like to stay All we have to do is play Follow me right into space You really ought to go Out into the world you're nobodies girl Don't wait any longer to go out into the night, nobodies right It might make you stronger I can be someone, If you need someone It's a risk that you could take You're the only one, And I'm lonely cause all I have has gone away, away, away There's a theme that you might see If you would only follow me The time has come for us to leave You really ought to go Out into the world you're nobodies girl Don't wait any longer to go out into the night, nobodies right It might make you stronger Go out, into the world, Nobodies girl, Don't wait any longer to go Out, Into the night, Nobodies right It might make you stronger
