Track Name: Concrete Jungle
strolling through the snow windy in the dead of winter
i need someone to hold to loosen up these icy fingers
i see you standing over by the riverside
so baby inch on closer to me aint no time to linger

footprints in the snow no path to follow but our own
we could build a home forgetting all that we have known
as we grow older you'll still be there by my side
we'll be lookin back reflecting on how we have grown

woah... spend all of our lives not knowing what we're looking for
ohh... only then to find what we need is right outside our door

angels in the snow shadows from the city lights
devil from below haunts the lonely winter nights
concrete jungle get me out before i die
we can go and find ourselves some peace of mind

woah... spend all of our lives not knowing what we're looking for
ohh... only then to find what we need is right outside our door

dancing through the snow waltzing in the winter weather
wherever we may go we'll still have our home together
as we grow older you'll still be there by my side
as seasons pass only time will make it better

woah... spend all of our lives not knowing what we're looking for
ohh... only then to find what we need is right outside our door

woah... spend all of our lives not knowing what we're looking for
ohh... only then to find what we need is right outside our door
Track Name: Hide & Seek
These days I find I can't remember much
I lay awake I'm longing for your touch
You come and go you never stopped to try
While I twist and turn can't even catch your eye

You told me once that if we lost our way
we'd carry on no need to spread the blame

did you forget the words you spoke that day?
Or will you turn... will you turn and walk away?

I hide away you come around to seek me out
If its a game you wanna play than let me out
There's only so far I can stretch to dance with you
and cry with you
and see us through it all

and so I beg
Please hear me out
Should i be screaming your name out loud
i need to know
just where we stand
are we together or are we on our own again?

So here we are we'll find a way to work it out
talk it out don't drown me out....
fading falling breathin fast then i'm kissing you and pushing you away

so stop and think will we survive in this gaping hole
we're on the brink and baby i can't take it anymore

I hide away you come around to seek me out
If its a game you wanna play than let me out
There's only so far I can stretch to dance with you
and cry with you
and see us through it all

and so I beg
Please hear me out
Should i be screaming your name out loud
i need to know
just where we stand
are we together or are we on our own again?

The time is now the freeze frame says it all
oh in your eyes a fire stirs and calls

i do believe this moment's not the end
but if we stay let's not do this again

I hide away you come around to seek me out
If its a game you wanna play than let me out
There's only so far I can stretch to dance with you
and cry with you
and see us through it all

and so I beg
Please hear me out
Should i be screaming your name out loud
i need to know
just where we stand
are we together or are we on our own again?
are we on our own.....
Track Name: Can You Hear Me Now?
with the weight of the world upon my shoulders
im burning out im paralyzed
but i can't turn away its now or never
so save your silence for another day

with the palm of my hands i'm breaking down
the door that leads from me to you
try to understand we have the choice to
live or die before this day is through

so gather round
we'll shout from the rooftops of this town
can you hear me now?
can you hear me now?
can you hear me now?

the world can be cruel we both know this is true
livin' from the day to do just to survive
but we cannot stay inside this game they play
we've gotta move to stay alive

so gather round
we'll shout from the rooftops of this town
can you hear me now?
can you hear me now?
can you hear me now?

the night can be cold the winds can pierce the soul
just when you think you got it, so easy to lose control
but we've gotta rise like heat from off the ground
like heat from off the ground

so gather round
we'll shout from the rooftops of this town
can you hear me now?
can you hear me now?
can you hear me now?

i can hear you now.....
