Track Name: Traces of the Day
The sun had kissed my skin and left traces of the day
Enraptured in his warmth I let my cares slip away
As I let summer in I felt winter melt away
Soon As I stepped outside I felt it all begin

Nothing's going on and I'm feeling just fine
I'm dreaming in my sleep and I'm gonna be alright

I hold his body close as I lay inside his arms
Tenderness of his touch I'm addicted to his charms
Relentless is his heat and the ardency in his eyes
And he is drawn to me honeysuckle to my rose

Nothing's going on and I'm feeling just fine
I'm dreaming in my sleep and I'm gonna be alright

Days like these for me are few and far between
Everyday life is so crazy
This morning I arose, longed to embrace the day
I couldn't wait to see his face

Nothing's going on and I'm feeling just fine
I'm dreaming in my sleep and I'm gonna be alright
Track Name: Little Wing
Little wing has taken flight
She is lighter than the breeze, she flies
Sails above with all her mind
Through the wind she soars with ease
She flies

Through the storm she still carries on
The pain and the strife make her strong
Though she can't see beyond tomorrow
She lets go of the hurt and sorrow

There's a fire in her eyes, an objective on her mind
She flies
Though her innocence is gone
In her heart the child lives on and flies

Delicate though her wings may be
She has the power to stir the seas
Little one has a song to sing
She is the strength deep inside of me

She dreams of tomorrow as she flies away
There's a song in her heart and that is where it stays
Forget was has past, just let it dissipate
And then fly little wing
Just fly
Track Name: The Truth
The wound has reopened
Only this time I let you inside
As the ache of rejection takes over I salvage my pride

You know this ain't the way it was supposed to be
But its nobody's fault
I thought I found my salvation in you
I meant to find the truth

The spell has been broken
And the image has faded away
And timeless devotion is a beast that can never be tamed

You know this ain't the way it was supposed to be
But its nobody's fault
I thought I found my salvation in you
I meant to find the truth

Your appetite for destruction
Left me broken and twisted inside
But I restored my strength, found every shred of pride
And the one thing that I realized
Is everybody feels this way sometimes
Track Name: Less Than Nothing
I can see you're here because you want to save me
Please don't even try
Don't try to tell me that you don't feel sorry for me
Please tell me no lies

I don't need and I don't want your sympathy
I can't take your understanding lording over me
You're so very kind
You make me feel like
You make me feel like
Less than nothing

I know you're here because you promised me you would be
Well I don't want you around
You can't be here for me the way I want you to be
your very presence breaks me down

I can't stand the way you look at me
I don't want to make amends
I can't bring myself to look into your eyes
You make me feel like
You make me feel like

Can't change old lovers into friends
Oh what a way to condescend
If I can't have your love I don't want to make amends
You make me feel like
You make me feel like
Less than Nothing
Track Name: Traces of the Day (Unplugged)
The sun had kissed my skin and left traces of the day
Enraptured in his warmth I let my cares slip away

And he is drawn to me honeysuckle to my rose

Nothing's going on and I'm feeling just fine
I'm dreaming in my sleep and I'm gonna be alright
