Track Name: Living Proof
Another evening falls
Moonlight starts to drape
Taking to these city streets
She searches for escape

Daddy's little girl
He never got to know
As with every day that's passed
The void begins to grow

and I'm sorry I'm the one who let her down
I'm so sorry I'm the one who never cared to hang around
Now you're stuck here living proof
Tragedy is real
Swim in seas of millions
Couldn't care less how you feel

Somehow life goes on
Somehow life goes on
Somehow life goes on
Somehow life goes on

Went out friday night
Never to return
You are all sound sleeping as
The fire starts to burn

Huddled in a room
No one says a thing
Seven pairs of crying eyes
Beg that phone to ring

and I'm sorry I'm the one who let him go
I'm so sorry I'm the one who took the wheel and lost contro
Now you're stuck here living proof
Tragedy is real
Swim in seas of millions
Couldn't care less how you feel

Somehow life goes on
Somehow life goes on
Somehow life goes on
Somehow life goes on

(Bridge)

(Verse 3)
Home on tuesday night
Everything seems fine
Suddenly there's pain
She dons a robe and gets in line

Been a hundred days
What a brilliant fight
As the clock strikes 4am
She walks into the light

and I'm sorry there was nothing we could do
I'm so sorry I'm the one who's left here crying over you
Now you're stuck here living proof
Tragedy is real
Swim in seas of millions
Couldn't care less how you feel

Somehow life goes on
Somehow life goes on
Somehow life goes on
Somehow life goes on
Somehow life goes on
Somehow life goes on
Somehow life goes on
Somehow life goes on
Track Name: We're Gonna Get Through
Keep on keeping on back where everyone can tell
Their prying eyes know so well
A man that's being put through hell

Back home sit all alone somebody waits for me
Not like it used to be
We'd be missing each desperately

Further we fall each day growing older
Into the hole we dig through the week
I am a cold and wind beaten soldier
Tired and in too deep

Back home ex on the phone she hadn't seen in years
An option to disappear
Yeah she's thinking bout leaving here

Hopes somehow maybe the babies don't have to know
Watch as they push and pull
Cry out momma please don't go

Further we fall each day growing older
Into the hole we dig through the week
I am a cold and wind beaten soldier
Tired and in too deep

Girl don't you know that you need me
I think you know I need you too
We're gonna get through
Darling don't you know I still love you
I think you know you love me too
We're gonna get through

Through stormy skies the future lies in the palm of your own hand
At times you learn your life won't turn out quite the way you planned, no
Honestly a part of me has begun to understand
We're gonna get through this phase
Though it gets so hard some days

Further we fall each day growing older
Into the hole we dig through the week
I am a cold and wind beaten soldier
Tired and in too deep

Girl don't you know that you need me
I think you know I need you too
We're gonna get through
Darling don't you know I still love you
I think you know you love me too

We're gonna get through
We're gonna get through
We're gonna get through
We're gonna get through
Track Name: I'm Already Over You
You, come home in what feels like forever, I
Catch you sporting raised tail-feathers, I
Ain’t stupid I can put four together
There’s something going on in here

You act like we don’t have trouble, I
Take pleasure in bursting your bubble, I
Know exactly where you been crossing double
The lines have been drawn crystal clear
How could you do me so wrong? How could you do me so wrong?

So think about
All of the ways I have slaved for you
The home that I made for you
Well, I ain’t coming home again
This time tomorrow I will be gone
You can cry all you want
Cause I’m already over you

You say that you don’t have another, You
Tell me I’m your one only lover, Well,
I did we some work undercover and
Found out what you've done and where

Found fault with the things that you’ve said to me
I take salt with the sh*t that you fed to me
By now, you are already dead to me, dead to me, dead to me, dead to me
How could you do me so wrong? How could you do me so wrong?

So think about
All of the ways I have slaved for you
The home that I made for you
Well, I ain’t coming home again
This time tomorrow I will be gone
You can cry all you want
Cause I’m already over you

It made its way about town
That you’ve been fooling around
Then made its way back to me
Oh oh oh oh
How could you be so unkind
How could I be so blind
To not have seen this immediately

So think about
All of the ways I have slaved for you
The home that I made for you
Well, I ain’t coming home again
This time tomorrow I will be gone
You can cry all you want
Cause I’m already over you
Track Name: Sunlight in the Rain
I feel I should let you know
Maybe you've met her so
I'll do my best to fill you in

Lately its not so bright
The girl who lights up my life
Finding a new way to begin

I've tried to tell her everything's gonna be alright
We both know it's gonna take some more time

If I alone could write
A song to find the sunlight in the rain
Comforting and calm all the while

If I alone could write
A song to break the daylight through the pain
Tried as it is true, as all the love shines through when she smiles

Seemingly there's no cure
Tears that begin to pour
Soon as the season starts to show

I'll take her out one night
To beautiful Brooklyn Heights
Holiday lights are all aglow

I've done my best to try and make her believe again
I wish that there was more I could do

If I alone could write
A song to find the sunlight in the rain
Comforting and calm all the while

If I alone could write
A song to break the daylight through the pain
Tried as it is true, as all the love shines through when she smiles

I would do anything for her
I would do anything for her

Gradually time heals all
Snow that begins to fall
Covering all we start anew
Track Name: I Have Said Enough (Acoustic)
I will fall
That I know
Say you don't feel the same
And I will go

I have been sitting here
You have told
Me of your reasons why
And I'm not sold

I am so lost in what you believe
I am so lost in what you believe

With these eyes
All made clear
Why we still find ourselves
Right back here

I see you terrified
Love so new
Tell me you have with him
All we do

I am so lost in what you believe
I am so lost in what you believe

And I would love to be the one to find
The way to help you to
Unlock the chains to your own mind
But I have said enough

You will fall
To what you know
Say you don't want to be with me
And I will go

I may have out of fear
Come on too strong
But I would not be standing here
If I was wrong

I am so lost in what you believe
I am so lost in what you believe

And I would love to be the one to find
The way to help you to
Unlock the chains to your own mind
But I have said
I have said

You got me lost in
All your excuses
You are not crazy

No you are not crazy
We are all alone
You can be open
You can be open
You can let me in

And I would love to be the one to find
The way to help you to
Unlock the chains to your own mind
But I have said
I have said
I have said enough
