Track Name: With Passing Time
It’s been so well kept that we didn’t even see it
Sensed it, though we could never feel it or make sense of this

This lack of reflection on ourselves, it may appear shallow
Looking from another perspective

Maybe hesitation says we’ll never know cliché

Let’s immerse ourselves in make-believe stories, let’s pretend that they’re reality
We’re not in love, that’s a distant dream
But we could be, we could be

The lights seem over-amplified so we lay in darkness
In which an idea can inspire hours of thought

We put this feeling down to no more than attraction
It still did not cross our minds

Maybe hesitation says we’ll never know cliché

Let’s immerse ourselves in make-believe stories, let’s pretend that they’re reality
We’re not in love, that’s a distant dream
But we could be, we could be
Let’s immerse ourselves in make-believe stories, let’s pretend that they’re reality
What I know, you don’t believe
But you’ve missed me, you’ve missed me

Have you ever noticed
When we say goodbye
We touch a little longer
Close our eyes a little longer

The things I hear you say
The way we act
How we close our eyes a little longer
When we part, and walk away
The way we act
How we close our eyes a little longer

Let’s immerse ourselves in make-believe stories, let’s pretend that they’re reality
Track Name: Storytelling
This storytelling is more than unclear
The words are twisted in every chapter, torn apart
These lines are making you so insecure
You wouldn’t worry if you knew the truth

Stare for a heartbeat longer and you’ll find what you’ve been looking for
Feel for a heartbeat longer and you’ll find that you’re in love
You’re in love

My eyes glaze over and I’m lost in my own thoughts
Let’s no longer rewind and start it again
It’s not as before, don’t be afraid to take a chance
This will amount to so much more in the end

Stare for a heartbeat longer and you’ll find what you’ve been looking for
Feel for a heartbeat longer and you’ll find that you’re in love
You’re in love

If you would, if you would
If you would, if you would

If you would stare
If you would feel
If you would take a look
You would find the truth

Stare for a heartbeat longer and you’ll find what you’ve been looking for
(If you would stare, if you would feel)
Feel for a heartbeat longer and you’ll find that you’re in love
(If you would take a look, you would find that you’re in love)
Track Name: Be the First
Let’s go get lost, we’ll lose ourselves all night
Wander aimlessly through streets and avenues
Let’s go get lost, we’ll lose ourselves all night
With faces streaming past, not one taking notice of us

Leave your fear, don't let this moment pass
Are you aware, here's me and here's you
Leave your fear, don't let this moment pass
When you think of me, I think of you

Be the first to say yes
You’ll be the last to regret this
Give me time, you’ll be fine, go on, make up your mind
Just take a chance tonight

So take my hand, come talk with me all night
We’ll talk of days gone by and all our favourite songs
So take my hand, come walk with me all night
We will walk along paths where time can’t reach us

Leave your fear, don't let this moment pass
Are you aware, here's me and here's you
Leave your fear, don't let this moment pass
When you think of me, I think of you

Be the first to say yes
You’ll be the last to regret this
Give me time, you’ll be fine, make up your mind
Just take a chance tonight

Leave your fear, don’t let this moment pass
Are you aware, here’s me and here’s you
Leave your fear, don’t let this moment pass
When you think of me I think of you

Let’s not waste time, just be mine
Let’s not waste time, just be mine

Be the first to say yes
You’ll be the last to regret this
Give me time, you’ll be fine, go on,
Make up your mind
Track Name: Follow
Sometimes, when you’re searching so hard for something
You may see it when it’s barely there
You’ll think you’ve found it when it’s not even there

I have learned to always follow
To trust its path, but this time
I don’t know where my heart is taking me
I don’t know where my heart is heading

Sometimes, when you long and care so much for something
When you’re mind is so full of concern
You’ll give everything you have, for nothing in return

I have learned to always follow
To trust its path, but this time
I don’t know where my heart is taking me
I don’t know where my heart is heading

I have learned to always follow
To trust its path, but this time
I don’t know where my heart is taking me
I don’t know where my heart is heading

I don’t know where my heart is taking me
I don’t know where my heart is heading
Track Name: Perfect Picture
Concluding remarks made by circles of friends
As with any circles, won’t lead to an end
I can’t share my mind if you won’t let me speak it

The pen will not reach the ever-distant paper
As the truth in my words is never inferred
I can’t share my life if you won’t let me live it

Their lives look like the perfect picture
Everything’s as it should appear
But I see her face, the hesitation shows the need for change
Their lives look like the perfect picture
A closer look shows him not with her
But it’s okay, maybe I can’t see how they do anyway
Who’s to say

I’m no actor, so know I’m not pretending
I shouldn't be this hard to believe in
I can’t share my mind if you won’t let me speak it

With such a well defined character
I shouldn’t be this hard to understand
I can’t share my life if you won’t let me live it

Their lives look like the perfect picture
Everything’s as it should appear
But I see her face, the hesitation shows the need for change
Their lives look like the perfect picture
A closer look shows him not with her
But it’s okay, maybe I can’t see how they do anyway
Who’s to say

People see first just what they expect to see
So it appears that nothing has changed
It feels like this will last forever
Trusting perception over my word

If time asleep felt to pass the same as waking
Would you finally have the chance to see the sense of this all
If time asleep felt to pass the same as waking
Would you finally have the chance to see the sense of this all
Track Name: The Secret
The questions begin as nothing
But they change, and they grow into everything
I have come to realise that all of this is a lie
In this act, in this scene, the plot goes around in circles

Is it really worth doing the things that we do
We could run away
Is it really worth living the way that we are
We could run away

There’s too much going on here
Too many locks, too many keys that lead to nowhere
I look around and see what this is not supposed to be
All the means to an end are passed off as nothing

Is it really worth doing the things that we do
We could run away
Is it really worth living the way that we are
We could run away

Ideas so graceful, graceful, and elegant
Though there’s still something missing in my mind
