Track Name: Destined
I thought that you died out
Few vows are engraved in stone
My heart had been blacked out
But you felt like home

So tell me what you want, tell me what you need
Let me pay you back, don’t mind rolling up my sleeves
I’m destined to be with you
Show me all your scars, show me what you’ve seen
We can start again, start until we feel washed clean
I’m destined to be with you

A vision with soft eyes,
An angel with hands to touch
I’ve used up my war cries
Found peace in your love

So tell me what you want, tell me what you need
Let me pay you back, don’t mind rolling up my sleeves
I’m destined to be with you
Show me all your scars, show me what you’ve seen
We can start again, start until we feel washed clean
I’m destined to be with you

I can feel the love, and I can see the ring
It was more than I was envisioning

So tell me what you want, tell me what you need
Let me pay you back, don’t mind rolling up my sleeves
I’m destined to be with you
Show me all your scars, show me what you’ve seen
We can start again, start until we feel washed clean
I’m destined to be with you
Track Name: I'll Never Know Him
I saw a man from a distant light
Singing from a tune within his soul
You might, perchance, think he glanced my way
But as for logic, who can really say

All the world's a stage, and there's different parts we play
That sometimes never cross
And you may think I'm strange, but to let this vision fade
Would be my greatest loss

For his eyes and his smile and his curly locks
Paint a lovely image in my mind
And his grace and his charm and his peace of mind
Give me hope that I once left behind

And I don't know him
No, I don't know him

Shall I compare thee to a summer day
Or a drifting memory reborn
You came to part the seas that churned with gray
Shedding light upon a love forlorn

All the world's a stage, and there's different parts we play
That sometimes never cross
And you may think I'm strange, but to let this vision fade
Would be my greatest loss

For his eyes and his smile and his curly locks
Paint a lovely image in my mind
And his grace and his charm and his peace of mind
Give me hope that I once left behind

And I don't know him
No, I don't know him
How can I know him
I’ll never know him

All the world's a stage, and there's different parts we play
That sometimes never cross
And you may think I'm strange, but to let this vision fade
Would be my greatest loss

For his eyes and his smile and his curly locks
Paint a lovely image in my mind
And his grace and his charm and his peace of mind
Give me hope that I once left behind

And I don't know him
No, I don't know him
How can I know him
I’ll never know him
Track Name: Recklessly
We used to be what they call friends
At least, I thought we were
I was deceived by the pretense of love
In your smile

You had me thinking more
Hope flooded the core of my heart
And now you've gone for good
Is it fair that I should live with that

Cause it's your eyes that haunt me
In the night, I find they're all that I'm staring at
And it's my soul that's hurting
Cause I desperately miss what I never had

I was undisturbed, in a quiet world, until you came
Now, the thought of you recklessly consumes everything
And when I try to hide, your name amplifies all the same
It's a hopeless cause, but it's something I can't tame

Cause it's your eyes that haunt me
In the night, I find they're all that I'm staring at
And it's my soul that's hurting
Cause I desperately miss what I never had

I was undisturbed, in a quiet world, until you came
Now, the thought of you recklessly consumes everything
And when I try to hide, your name amplifies all the same
It's a hopeless cause, but it's something I cannot tame

Cause it's your eyes that haunt me
In the night, I find they're all that I'm staring at
And it's my soul that's hurting
Cause I desperately miss what I never had

Cause it's your eyes that haunt me
In the night, I find they're all that I'm staring at
And it's my soul that's hurting
Cause I desperately miss what I never had

I was undisturbed, in a quiet world, until you came
Now, the thought of you recklessly consumes everything
Track Name: My Dying Heart
I can’t fight this feeling that you may be mine
And if not now, it’s just a matter of time
Every day, I find it harder to draw the line
Cause my heart says you’ll stay the rest of my life

And I’ve never met a soul so intense
It chills me to see the darkness in your eyes
No, I cannot tell you how I’m hypnotized
Your voice still lingers in the night

And there’s fire deep in your desire
Raging up this pyre of my dying heart
And I know I cannot fight this high
But I’m gonna try to escape

I can’t fight this feeling that we’re out of time
Cause I was never yours and you weren’t mine
Every day, I find it harder to hold off the crime
Of telling you we must say goodbye

Cause I’ve never met a soul so intense
It chills me to see the darkness in your eyes
No, I cannot tell you how I’m terrified
Cause your voice still lingers in the night

And there’s fire deep in your desire
Raging up this pyre of my dying heart
And I know I cannot fight this high
But I’m gonna try to escape

I can’t fight this feeling that you may be mine
And if not now, it’s just a matter of time
Track Name: Secretly Admire
I wrote a letter and sent it out to the wind
Hoping that it'd find you
Somehow, I knew it reached your hands
But it never found your heart

Oh, taker of my soul
You will never know, you will never know
Oh, stealer of my soul
You will never know that I secretly admire you

I called your name out in a crowd
But the sound lost hope and faded out
I grew long tired of the night
Cause you were all I could think about

Oh, taker of my soul
You will never know, you will never know
Oh, stealer of my soul
You will never know that I secretly admire you
You will never know that I secretly admire you

And when I smile at you, I am filled with fear
That you might somehow never reappear
And when I smile at you, I shed many tears
Cause I know that I've wasted all these years

And when I smile at you, I am filled with fear
That you might somehow never reappear
And when I smile at you, I shed many tears
Cause I know that I've wasted all these years
Pining over you

You will never know, you will never know
You will never know that I secretly admire you

I wrote a letter and sent it out to the wind
Hoping that it'd find you
Somehow, I knew it reached your hands
But it never found your heart
Track Name: Evergreen
Your eyes, dark enough to hypnotize
Your hands, wrapped around mine felt so right

Sometimes, I will simply close my eyes
And you will wipe away the tears I couldn't hide, hide
But you had your pride

Why ya gotta be so darn stupid
Why ya gotta rely on Cupid
To make me fall right back to you

Why ya gotta make up excuses
Why ya gotta make me feel useless
Piercing rain, but back like morning dew
Yeah I didn't think that'd be you

You said, it's rare to find someone like you
But then, drifting off you found somebody new
When I stayed true

Why ya gotta be so darn stupid
Why ya gotta rely on Cupid
To make me fall right back to you

Why ya gotta make up excuses
Why ya gotta make me feel useless
Piercing rain, but back like morning dew
Yeah I didn't think that'd be you

Let's go back to the evergreen
It's just you and me, and our crazy dreams
Let's go back to the darkened sea
Living out of a fantasy
Let's go back to the evergreen
Go back to the evergreen
Now it's only me, and a worn-out scene

Why you gotta be so darn stupid
Why you still rely on Cupid
To make me want to come back to you
Well that's just not how I do
Yeah I didn't think that'd be you
