Track Name: Gloriously Autumnal
It feels gloriously Autumnal
Colours swirling in the wind
Sweep me away, again
Carry me away, carry me away

Tumbling through the air
The colours beyond compare
Sweep me away, again
Carry me away, carry me away

The crunch beneath my feet
The vividness so sweet
I'm swept away, again
Carried away


And everything is old and new
I begin again, and end with you
I lay me down, and rise so high
In a whisper, I die
In your wildness, I fly
Carried away


The chill that takes my breath
(How beautiful) this mingled life and death
Sweeping me away, again
I'm carried away


And everything is old and new
I begin again, and end with you
I lay me down, and rise so high
In a whisper, I die
In your wildness, I fly
Carried away


Carried away, carried away
Oh, carry me away, carry me away


Everything is old and new
I begin again, and end with you
I lay me down, and rise so high
In a whisper, I die
In your wildness, I fly
Carried away


Carry me away, carry me away
Carry me away, carry me away
Oh, carry me away, carry me away
Carry me away, carry me away
Track Name: No One Else But Me (Behind The Mask)
Take it off, put it down
All of these pretences
Curious? Do you want to know
Who dwells behind the defences?
You should walk away
You should understand
The walls are there to protect you
Just as much as they are there to protect me

Behind the mask, behind the mask
There's nothing you want to see
Behind the mask, behind the mask
There's nothing you want to be
Behind the mask, there's nothing left but me
Nothing else but me

Look at me, feel the pain
And all the longs for freedom
Can you stand to hold my gaze -
The anguished eyes of the broken?
Please don't walk away
You should understand
The walls come down only by love
Take that chance and you'll find out
Oh, you'll learn

You must learn

Behind the mask, behind the mask
There's all that's left of me
Behind the mask, behind the mask
Desperate to be free
Behind the mask, just scared to be
No one else but me
Track Name: Bottle
I had a bottle full of dreams
I spilled it on the floor
It stained the carpet blue
And damaged my front door
As it rolled, it crashed and dented
Anything that got into its way
I had a bottle full of dreams
But the bottle got away

Filled it up with other things, I did
Filled it up with wine
Filled it up with more regret
Filled it up with time

I had a bottle full of dreams
But the bottle got away
Track Name: Forsake The Walls
The rain falls cold outside my window, there
Please don't make me go out in the cold
These familliar walls are my prison and my home
I don't want to face the unknown
But my heart keeps telling me
"Go beyond the safety -
Break free!"

Feel the wind in my face
Telling me, "Forsake the walls
See the world through rain-washed eyes
Rainwashed eyes"

Feel the wind in my face
Telling me, "Forsake the walls
See the world through rain-washed eyes
Rainwashed eyes"

"See the world through rainwashed eyes."
"See the world through rainwashed eyes."
"See the world through rainwashed eyes."
"See the world..."
Track Name: My Salvation (Ageless One)
Ageless One, I want to spend some time with You
In Your presence I'm renewed

You are my Light
The darkness falls away
The gloom, the doom
The game depression plays
In Your presence I am changed
You remain

Ageless One, I want to spend some time with You
In Your presence I'm renewed

You are my Rock
The grains of life, like sand
The shift and turn of plans
That overwhelm and mock
Yet, in Your presence I stand
Assured, secure, forevermore

Ageless One
My Light, My Rock, My Salvation

You are my Hope
When despair is all I feel
In Your presence I will kneel
You help me to cope

When I come undone
You help me overcome
When I come undone
You help me overcome

I'll overcome

I'll overcome
Track Name: Lead Me On
Standing at the crossroads once again
Wondering which way do I turn
Lord, show me the way that I need to go
And teach me the lessons I must learn
I want to follow my heart
And see all my dreams coming true
Yet, apart from you, I can do nothing at all
Nothing that's lasting or true

Oh, I don't want to build my life on wishes
I don't want to build my dreams on sand
Lead me on... to the Promised Land

And if the world ever gave to me a stage
And put up my names in lights
For a moment I'd be queen of everything I see
But I'd know that something wasn't right
'Cause if I can sing ev'ry note in ev'ry scale
And play ev'ry instrument made
It is nothing but noise unless I have loved
And lived to give more than I take

Standing at the crossroads once again
Wondering which way do I turn

Oh, I don't to build my life on wishes
I don't want o build my dreams on sand
I won't be driven by blind ambition
But guided forward by Your hand
Lead me on...to the Promised Land
Track Name: Gloriously Autumnal Reprise
Everything is old and new
I begin again and end, oh, I'll end it all with you
I lay me down, and rise so high
In a whisper, I die.
