Without a doubt The time has come for me to sell out Eventually The same will come to everyone I knew to run, I chose to stay I had the plan but lost my way Anything can happen I broke the rules, I played the game I lost the round and brought this shame Anything can happen I turned my back became a slave I sealed my fate and dug my grave There’s a price you pay for selling out Unknown to me I traded peace for currency Looking back I can find the warning signs I knew to run, I chose to stay I had the plan but lost my way Anything can happen I broke the rules, I played the game I lost the round and brought this shame Anything can happen Intentions lost I closed that door Consumed by greed I lost it all That’s the price you pay for selling out I broke the rules, I played the game Anything can happen I lost the round, I brought this shame Anything can happen The price of selling out I turned my back became a slave I sealed my fate and dug my grave My conscience rang, I missed the call Consumed by fear I lost it all That’s the price you pay for selling out The price you pay for selling out The price you pay for selling out

Cast aside and left alone Can you hear me? Helplessness became my home Can you hear me? There must be peace, there must be hope Can you hear me? There must be love I’ve never known
 Are you free or are you bound to something? You can seek but you might not like what you find Before the day that I met you I never thought I needed anyone, anyone, anyone You are the only one for me Before the day that I met you I never thought I needed anyone, anyone, anyone You are the only one for me Who will heal this broken soul? Can you hear me? My despair is all I know Can you hear me? There must be peace, there must be hope Can you hear me? There must be love I’ve never known Are you free or are you bound to something? You can seek but you might not like what you find Before the day that I met you I never thought I needed anyone, anyone, anyone You are the only one for me Before the day that I met you I never thought I needed anyone, anyone, anyone You are the only one for me Before the day that I met you I never thought I needed anyone, anyone, anyone You are the only one for me Before the day that I met you I never thought I needed anyone, anyone, anyone You are the only one for me (You) You are the only one for me (You) You are the only one for me (You) You are the only one for me (You) You are the only one for me

I feel nothing but the pain but I hope for better days I feel scars of my afflictions to the point of my distain Confusion came, chaos reigned Some have gone before me and live to tell the story But still nobody knows directions to the road to recovery I know it won’t be easy and even if it kills me I will spend my life searching for the road to recovery I am woken by your voice in the silence of the night And if I stare at my reflection I can see you in my eyes Dejection came, darkness reigned Some have gone before me and live to tell the story But still nobody knows directions to the road to recovery I know it won’t be easy and even if it kills me I will spend my life searching for the road to recovery Many others in the past Have set off to not come back I will search these lonely streets If there earth beneath my feet like a traveller I will roam, roam I feel nothing but the pain Some have gone before me and live to tell the story But still nobody knows directions to the road to recovery I know it won’t be easy and even if it kills me I will spend my life searching for the road to recovery I will spend my life searching for the road to recovery I will spend my life searching for the road to recovery

Woke to the sunrise in the darkest sky I’ve ever seen I knew this day would come Tried my best to hide the truth that you must leave today I’ll never be the same If this is goodbye…. If this is goodbye…. Free, I can’t be - Say goodbye one last time - Like the first time Free, I can’t be - Say goodbye one last time - Like the first time again Like the first time again Walked in the sunset in the coldest chill there’s ever been We knew this day would come No point in crying cause the fact is you must leave today I don’t know what to say If this is goodbye…. If this is goodbye…. Free, I can’t be - Say goodbye one last time - Like the first time Free, I can’t be - Say goodbye one last time - Like the first time again Like the first time…. I never knew the day would come fast and I never thought, it would hurt me so bad I’d give it all to have our time again (Like the first time) ….to have our time again (Like the first time) Free, I can’t be - Say goodbye one last time…. Free, I can’t be - Say goodbye one last time - Like the first time Free, I can’t be - Say goodbye one last time - Like the first time again Like the first time again Like the first time again Like the first time Like the first time Like the first time

Come and go so quickly, such a shame we cannot stay Some get half their lifetime but why I cannot say Searching through the carnage Calling out your name Blinded by the sunlight Muffled by the rain What if we’re already dead and this time is token? And this time is token? What if we’re already dead and this time is token? And this time is token? You lay there and you’re trying to talk but tears are all we say There will be no mercy until sickness wins the day What if we’re already dead and this time is token? And this time is token? What if we’re already dead and this time is token? And this time is token? Sickness wins the day Sickness wins the day... What if we’re already dead? I'm searching through the carnage and I'm calling out your name There trying to talk but tears are all we say No mercy until sickness wins the day What if we’re already dead and this time is token? And this time is token? What if we’re already dead and this time is token? And this time is token?

You were like the song that I had to hear From the moment that I saw you there You were three weeks from 15 And the only one for me The evening that I took your hand Is the moment that it all began When times are tough you need to understand You can be grieving, sad, abused You can be frightened, sick, confused You can be healthy, happy too There is just one thing I won’t let you be Without me It’s always been a mystery How you see the best in me I’m not the man I long to be When I stumble constantly The words written in our vows I see them in your eyes somehow I never understood them until now You can be grieving, sad, abused You can be frightened, sick, confused You can be healthy, happy too There is just one thing I won’t let you be Without me Oh, oh, oh, oh Oh, oh, oh, oh One thing you’ll never be is without me Oh, oh, oh, oh Oh, oh, oh, oh One thing you’ll never be is without me

What you wanted and what you needed became your everything Like The Fifth in full symphony set with no one listening We near had it all We were close but we were so far apart We near had it all You don’t feel that I’m to blame but I am more than you understand You don’t feel that I’m to blame but I am more than you understand The sorrow filled you body and the angst was undeterred There was beauty in that broken heart but The Ninth was never heard We near had it all We were close but we were so far apart We near had it all You don’t feel that I’m to blame but I am more than you understand You don’t feel that I’m to blame but I am more than you understand We near had it all We near had it all You don’t feel that I’m to blame but I am more than you understand You don’t feel that I’m to blame but I am more than you understand More than you understand More than you understand More than you understand
