Track Name: Time Will Tell
I've been so low
spiraling through the undertow
so far away from you
slowly cut in two
so set aside your heart for now
only time will tell
only time will tell
You just say the word
and slip through my fingers
so close but out of reach
a locked door without a key
so set aside your heart for now
only time will tell
only time will tell
Track Name: Looking Out the Window
Looking out the window at places you want to go
I'm feeling stuck in time the moments passing by

Wandering through the dark searching for that tiny spark
I'm trying to stay in the light the same dream every night

I lost my head and fell apart but now I see

By the time the sun's gone down
will you still be around I hope I'll see you again
and I wish I knew now what I knew then
Track Name: Bows and Arrows
There's a devil on your shoulder
showing you which way
if you choose to follow
I don't think I can stay
the difference between us has become night and day

I can feel you getting colder
put your silver bow away
if you're coming for me
I hope your aim is true
Cause I don't want to be standing after you've run me through

An arrow shot from a distance will always pierce the skin, but time, the ever-turning wheel won't turn back again
