Track Name: Purple Glow
There's no place, that I'd rather be.
I close my eyes, and you're all I see.
Nothing changes in your (my) memories.
The purple glow lies behind the trees.
Track Name: Relax Tonight
Relax,
Don't let the little things get you down.
Just relax,
'cause we'll help you get up off the ground.
So relax tonight,
because everything will be alright.
So Relax tonight,
better days are coming into sight.

Relax,
This breath could be your very last.
Relax,
Just breath deep and let the good times last.
Relax,
Don't try to go through life too fast.
Relax,
'Cause one day you'll wish you had it back.

I'm sittin' outside, listening to the cars go by.
All the bats are flying high,
and a cold mist fills the sky.
The bugs are chirping and the leaves are wet.
Well there's things in my head that I can't forget.
I should be sleeping, but I'm up instead.
And in the morning I won't want to leave my bed.
But I'll go off to class and get through the day.
But what I really want to do is escape and relax.
Track Name: Come Wander With Us
In the summer time, we didn't care.
Staying out all through the night,
underneath the streetlights' glare.
Well look up at the sky and see the moon shine.
With the clouds in the air.
Endless days of our lives is what we share.

Don't stop where you are, you gotta go far.
You gotta move along.
Gotta make it through, the good times and the bad.
Nobody ever makes, it through on the first try.
You gotta get up off the ground, spread your wings and fly.

In the winter time, the trees will be bare.
Walking through the cold as the ground turns white,
my face is numb from the air.
Well now I'm out of sight. I'm slipping on the ice.
And it's everywhere.
As the day turns to night, the stars appear.

Don't stop where you are, you gotta go far.
You gotta move along.
Gotta make it through, the good times and the bad.
Nobody ever makes, it through on the first try.
You gotta get up off the ground, spread your wings and fly.
Track Name: Empty Dreams
Empty dreams, they're haunting me and you.
In my head I believe mine are coming true.
You may say that I am crazy.
But I already know and that's okay.
