Track Name: Let Me Believe (Evan's Lament)
Evan knew he had no chance
as soon as they began their dance.
She'd be his but for a moment.
Within a dream, within a trance.
Well, when in Rome you need romance.
He got choked up with emotion.

He said "Let me believe this lie.
I want to pretend she's mine.
Reality step aside
and let me believe this lie."

Holding her, he lost himself.
Pretended he was someone else
who could hold her for a lifetime.
(Imagined himself as the prince who rode in.)
He was all the things he knew he wouldn't, couldn't ever be.
But it was only in his mind.

He said "Let me believe this lie." (You're doing pretty well.)
"I want to pretend she's mine." (Go on and fool yourself.)
"Reality step aside" (Who's got a dream to sell?)
"and let me believe this lie."

What could he do to win her over?
Maybe if he just held her closer
she would begin to share his hope for
one more dance.
Track Name: To and Fro
It's our final second.
But now, wait a second.
Isn't this the second
time or the third
that you've made that claim?
Everything is still the same.

Even though you've said it,
we could still forget it.
And you know I'd let it
go and be happy
to let it slide
because I'm on your side.

You say you're leaving but you'll never go.
Why are you keeping up this to and fro?
If it don't feel right, the door's open wide.
But I know tonight you'll be by my side.

Your non-action's speaking
louder than the freaking
words your mouth is leaking
out. All about
how you're up and gone.
But you're still here to hear this song.

You say you're leaving but you'll never go.
Why are you keeping up this to and fro?
If it don't feel right, the door's open wide.
But you know tonight you'll be by my side.

So, swallow your pride
And be my bride.

So, why would you
put us both through
the trials and tribulations
of a trial separation
when, in the final summation,
you will see the situation
like I do?

You say you're leaving but you'll never go.
why are you keeping up this to and fro?
If it don't feel right the door's open wide.
But we both know you'll wind up by my side.
Track Name: So
So long, it's been great to know ya.
So sad saying goodbye.
So hard believing it's over.
So much for making it fly.

But you'll shine on.
When all else is gone
and forgotten,
I'll still remember how
even the light changed
when it danced around you.

So long since you've felt it working.
You're so good at telling me so.
I'm so tired of trying to convince you
but so scared of letting you go.

But you'll shine on.
When all else is gone
and forgotten,
I'll still remember how
even the light changed.
And all of the good
that I'll still see,
no matter the distance
You choose to
put in between us.

So long, it's been great to know ya.
Track Name: No Way Out
So, you throw your life away.
Another glass of bourbon
makes it sugar-coated and fine.
Like the lines you're going to cross
a half a million times
half-loaded - makes it seem alright.

One catastrophe away.
Could happen any day.
Unfolding right before your eyes
that look into the mirror
at objects that appear
they're going to get cut down to size

and get what they deserve.
So, take it like a man
and finally accept there's . . .

No way out.

Should we say your fate is sealed?
Or, perhaps, destiny's
unfolding right before your eyes
that look into the mirror
and see nothing but fear
and loathing. Step up for your prize

that you picked out yourself.
You wanted it so bad.
And now you see it's left you . . .

No way out.
