Track Name: Such Sweet Sorrow
where is my love?
she's gone with the sun
goodbye my love
the season's begun

snow drifts and sheets of ice
dark skies both day and night
yellow haze of street lights
there is no warmth in sight

there is no shelter
no shelter here
there is no shelter
no shelter here

the cold air is bitter
much like my cynical mind
i wonder where it's better
such a place, i cannot find

winter aches my bones
my heart as bare as naked trees
her wind shakes my home
it aches and creaks with the breeze

there is no shelter
no shelter here
there is no shelter
no shelter here

cold and all alone
such sweet sorrow
waiting for tomorrow
in skin that we've borrowed

such sweet sorrow

yet i should kill thee with much cherishing
good night good night
parting is such sweet sorrow
that i shall say good night till it be morrow

parting is such sweet sorrow
Track Name: How to Live / How to Feel
i can't believe that you're gone
immersed in denial
what i'd give to see you smile
life's so fragile

don't haunt me unless you're back
back for good
somethings are never meant to be
understood
we die so others can learn how to live
to love
to laugh
and to forgive

my heart beats in memory of you
to the rhythm of your favourite song
a tribute to a life that ended to soon
in my heart and my mind
you live on

forever

forever, you live on
Track Name: If I Died Today
if i died today at the prime of my youth
what would they say?
what would they do?
if i died today will i learn the truth?
would my love stray?
would she stay true?

do not cry this day
cherish the memories
if i could i would stay
but that's not up to me
if you cry this day
wipe the tears and breathe
i may have gone away
let me go in peace

tell my father
i tried to make him proud
tell my mother
her prayers kept me sound
tell my sisters
and tell my brothers too
it's gonna be alright
the lord is here with you

tell my father
i tried to make him proud
tell my mother
her prayers kept me sound
tell my sisters
and tell my brothers too
it's gonna be alright
the lord is here with you
