Track Name: Take Me Back
Said my final goodbyes
Turned and walked away
Leaving nothing behind
But your love locked in a cage

Seeking shelter I found another who’d take my hand
only to discover that I am just half a man

So you’re taking me back again
from my heart down to my skin
with this second chance
Loneliness won’t be my friend
Take me back again

Diamonds set in your eyes
All my fears are washed away
Won’t you Save me tonight
and bring me back to grace

I’ve been holding out for much too long
I keep thinkin I’m too far gone

So you’re taking me back again
from my heart down to my skin
with this second chance
Loneliness won’t me my friend
Take me back again

I’ve finally made amends
I’m not losing sleep and
I begin to find the place where I belong (fit in)
Track Name: Where You Fall
You find trouble inside your dreams
While I find her in newspaper and magazines
And when trouble, she knocks on you door
Just tell her she’s not welcome anymore
See the writing on the wall?
You don’t need to fear at all


It’s not too late to say goodbye to this heartbreak
Let our feet take us someplace that we have never known
And chances are we’ll stumble while we’re chasing stars
But I’m gonna love you no matter where you fall

I know you’ve seen all this before
When opening up your heart is like waging war
Your eyes look like you’re losing sleep
And you talk like you’ve lost everything
Oh darling don’t you know
You don’t have to go alone


It’s not too late to say goodbye to this heartbreak
Let our feet take us someplace that we have never known
And chances are we’ll stumble while we’re chasing stars
But I’m gonna love you no matter where you fall

And A day may come
when trouble thinks she’s won
cause she has you on your knees
But what she doesn’t know
is that I’m standing close
and I’ve got the love that you need

It’s not too late to say goodbye to this heartbreak
Let our feet take us someplace that we have never known
And chances are we’ll stumble while we’re chasing stars
But I’m gonna love you no matter where you fall
Track Name: Love Me Like You Do
Loved Like You
Jameson Elder

Verse
So you left me standing at the backdoor, all alone
And I closed my eyes to let it all sink in
I filled my bed with sweet illusions that I dreamt up
Trying to trace down this missing thread

And these faces, nameless drift inside my head
All I’m just sitting here wishing it was you

Chorus
I wanna steal your heart and make you see me
I wanna steal your heart and make you believe
that I am not just a jealous fool
I just want to be the man for you

Verse
Maybe I’ve been lost in the bitterness for too long
Taking shape of someone altogether different from me
and I’m scattered, so lost in this heart of mine,
I’ve forgotten where I stand
And claim a name that’s not my own

And these lips I’m kissin could be made of pearls
But they mean nothing unless they’re yours

Chorus
I wanna steal your heart and make you see me
I wanna steal your heart and make you believe
that I am not just a jealous fool
I just want to be the man for you

Bridge
No one’s ever loved me like you do
No one’s ever loved me like you do
No one’s ever loved me like you do
No one’s ever loved me like you do


I kick and scream, I try to breathe
Just to let you know that I’m still holding on

Chorus
I wanna steal your heart and make you see me
I wanna steal your heart and make you believe
that I am not just a jealous fool
I just want to be the man for you I wanna steal your heart and make you believe
that I am not just a jealous fool
I just want to be the man for you
So Won’t you tell me what I must do
Cause I would run in circles after you
Track Name: Carry Me Back Home
I hear the sirens calling
Calling out my name
and the song they sing gets sweeter
as it reaches the refrain

And I can feel salvation
Slipping from my hands
the words I once held dear
fall along the road i tread, oh
So Carry me back home
I can’t make it on my own
I need your shelter and love
and I need your touch
oh i need your touch

Your eyes they fell upon me
a memory that remained
drawing me from sorrow
like sunshine through the rain

So Carry me back home
I can’t make it on my own
I need your shelter and love
and I need your touch
oh i need your touch
Track Name: Lie To Me
Lie to Me
Jameson Elder & Blake Mundell

With these stones we throw, we could build walls
Cities that touch the sky
We could watch as our mansions grow tall
But as they crumble, we wonder why

So you lie awake and you catch your breath
Searching dreams to ease your mind
But under the weight of words unsaid
Sleep won't close your eyes tonight

Don't you lie to me
Don't you lie to me
Don't you lie to me
And tell me everything is exactly the way
You wanted it to be

Fleeting words run through my head
Silence fills the air instead
You think I'm cold, but I'm just scared
Afraid my love will leave me re

Don't you lie to me
Don't you lie to me
Don't you lie to me
And tell me everything is exactly the way
You wanted it to be

All the promises that we once made
Lie in ruin on the streets we paved
But I don't want to make my home
A mansion that I built alone

Don't you lie to me
Don't you lie to me
Don't you lie to me
And tell me everything is exactly the way
You wanted it to be
