Track Name: Pale Flame
Hey there dear, do you recall
What made us stand what stood us tall
Was it you and me or the novelty
That once lived here but now it's gone
Like the dark night sky before the light of dawn

We have faded dear
Love just lingers here
It's dimmer now, not the same
Pale flame

We have faded dear
Love just lingers here
It's dimmer now, not the same
Pale flame

We said we'd battle through
Like true lovers do
Armed with trust and loyalty
But ready we were not for this war to be fought
It took us down it took us down with ease

Cause we have faded dear
Love just lingers here
It's dimmer now
Not the same
Pale flame

We have faded dear
Love just lingers here
It's dimmer now
Not the same
Pale Flame

We are done, we are through
It's over for me and you

Cause we have faded dear
Love just lingers here
It's dimmer now not the same
Pale flame

We have faded dear love just lingers here
It's dimmer now not the same
Pale flame.
Track Name: My Queen
You are my queen and I will be your king forever more
My love my life if ever there is anything wrong I'll try to make it right

And I know our love won't always be rosy
Sometimes rough not cozy
But if our love is true and strong
It shall live on

We wave our hands in the sky but we can't fly, we just pretend
And if you're sad, I'll be the beach
To catch those waves coming from your eyes

And I know our love won't always be rosy
Sometimes rough not cozy
But if our love is true and strong
It shall live on

And I know our love won't always be rosy
Sometimes rough, not cozy
But if our love is true and strong
It shall live on
Our love will live on
Track Name: Cry
Days will pass and days will come
When I feel like I'm the only one
I see that you found someone new
To share your heart like I use to do

So I cry myself to sleep
Oh I cry oh I cry
Till my tears, they run dry
Oh I cry myself to sleep

I try to stay up but I keep fallin' down
I miss so much when you were around
Our times together I don't think I'll ever find again
You said that you were in it until the very end

So I cry myself to sleep
Oh I cry Oh I cry
Till my tears, they run dry
Oh I cry myself to sleep

I know I should walk away
Leave that trouble behind
But what we had my love has left me blind
Blind and blue
I can't get over you

So I cry myself to sleep
Oh I cry Oh I cry
Till my tears, they run dry
Oh I cry myself to sleep
Track Name: Single Bed
I am a man who's loved before
But I also am a swinging door
For in they came and then they fled
So hear I lay in this single bed

Oh somebody hold me
Because I'm tired of being lonely

Is it the words I choose
Or the things I do
That have left me trapped within this point of view
I've tried to wait and I've tried to chase
But still I live with this void this empty space

Oh somebody hold me
Because I'm tired of being lonely

Older and older I grow every day
And so do my chances of finding a love that's here to stay
So I long to lay with another but instead
I lay here alone in this single bed

Oh somebody hold me
Because I'm tired of being lonely
Oh somebody hold me
Because I'm tired of being lonely
Oh somebody hold me
Track Name: Heaps Of Hearts
Monday is the day I think of you the most
When all the guys are gone and I'm sitting here like a ghost
I grab my pen and I start scribbling on a sheet
all the hurt and loss I know I can't defeat

So I'll send you heaps of hearts
To make us feel less apart
So I'll send you heaps of hearts baby
Come home to me

And as I watch the mountain pierce the morning sky
The sun pours in and draws a freckle near my eye
A smile starts to grow upon my face as I
Picture us together lying on this written page

So I'll send you heaps of hearts
To make us feel less apart
So I'll send you heaps of hearts baby
Come home to me

They say a love that's true will bridge this divide
So I write these words with hope that it's true love that we find

So I'll send you heaps of hearts baby
Come home to me baby
Come home to me baby
Come home to me
Track Name: Dressed in Blue (feat. Meaghan Blanchard)
The strings of my heart have begun to fray
What was once so close is now far away
To live a lie is hard to do
Oh red heart, dressed in blue

Oh how I feel like a flickering light
That may burn out before the night
Leave I may, without you
Oh red heart dressed in blue

Thick as mud no it ain't so clear
What has happened to me my dear
Try I will, but not for you
Oh red heart dressed in blue

Whoa, whoa, whoa. oh oh oh

If they cease to smile, I'd be to blame
Their feelings for me would never be the same
Go or stay, whichever I choose
Oh red heart dressed in blue
Oh red heart dressed in blue
Oh this red heart is not for you
