Track Name: Baby Back - Intro
They say if you love something
That you should hold it tight
So it should come as no surprise
That I will put up a fight

Sometimes it still feels like you're lying next to me
I turn my head to speak but then I find it hard to breathe
Have all these words I've spoken just disappeared into the black?
'Cause I'm just waiting on you to say, "I want my baby back."
Track Name: Chasing the Moon
It feels like I'm chasing the moon
When I'm chasing you
No matter how far I drive in this car
Still in the same place you were
Still can't get over the hurt

So please, come a little closer
Closer like we were before
The only way to get through this pain
Is to give this a little bit more, more
Running 'round in circles, chasing our ghosts
But we're not dead yet
We've still got love in this regret

It feels like you're chasing me too
'Cause I know the truth
I'm here in the sun and I won't run
'Till I run to you
Time only feels so cruel

So please, come a little closer
Closer like we were before
The only way to get through this pain
Is to give this a little bit more, more
Running 'round in circles, chasing our ghosts
But we're not dead yet
We've still got love in this regret

I feel you so near, although you're not here
Do you feel me too?
I feel your light shining with me in the night
You haven't forgotten me
So please, please, please

Please, come a little closer
Closer like we were before
The only way to get through this pain
Is to give me a little bit more, more
Running 'round in circles, chasing our ghosts
But we're not dead yet
I know we've got this love again
Track Name: Lean On This Love
I haven't been much of a dreamer lately
'Cause I haven't been seeing you, baby
Told you I would be okay
Maybe I am, maybe I'm not
But I still want you with me
We haven't lost it all
Tell me you'll lean on this love
And we will never fall

Maybe one day you'll find this
And remember how much you loved me
Or that it never went away
And you've never really been free

I won't leave as long as I believe

I haven't been much of a dreamer lately
'Cause I haven't been seeing you, baby
Told you I would be okay
Maybe I am, maybe I'm not
But I still want you with me
We haven't lost it all
Tell me you'll lean on this love
And we will never fall

Maybe one day I'll walk again
Down these streets with you
All the places you showed me
Will once again be new

I won't leave as long as I believe

Time can heal, but it can't change how we feel
Time can forgive, but it can never forget
I could heal, but I could never forget

I won't leave as long as I believe

I haven't been much of a dreamer lately
'Cause I haven't been seeing you, baby
Told you I would be okay
Maybe I am, maybe I'm not
But I still want you with me
We haven't lost it all
Tell me you'll lean on this love
And we will never fall

Just lean on me
And you'll never need to fall
Track Name: Northern Star
It's been awhile, I know it
And I've got a lot to show for it
Making my way to the finish line
You'll be waiting there for me just in time
To see me cross over into the light

I only blame myself for the way it fell apart
But we'll be together soon and make a brand new start

'Cause nothing is ever really lost, I say
It just gets misplaced then found along the way
You've always been that light guiding me
Away from where I was hiding
You've always been my Northern Star
A reason to look up even in the dark

Haven't been the best, I confess
And I admit I was a mess
Didn't want to rise above
But you're the one who woke me up
You can't say that isn't love

I only blame myself for the way it fell apart
But we'll be together soon and make a brand new start

'Cause nothing is ever really lost, I say
It just gets misplaced then found along the way
You've always been that light guiding me
Away from where I was hiding
You've always been my Northern Star
A reason to look up even in the dark

'Cause now the only thing I'm missing is you
And I know you've been missing me too
I can't go back in time, but I can change my life
And crawl out of the darkness that was my only friend
To see you standing there
And then this love will never go out again

Nothing is ever really lost, I say
It just gets misplaced then found along the way
You've always been that light guiding me
Away from where I was hiding
You've always been my Northern Star
A reason to look up even in the dark

You're my reason to look up even in the dark
Track Name: If You Didn't Love Me
If you didn't love me, then you wouldn't care
If you didn't love me, wouldn't breathe the same air
If you didn't love me, you wouldn't be near
If you didn't love me, then you wouldn't be here

But you are, you're here and you care
Living without me, oh you wouldn't dare
You can deny it, but your eyes show it clear
If you didn't love me, then you wouldn't be here

If you didn't love me, then why do you speak?
If you didn't love me, you'd turn the other cheek
If you didn't love me, wouldn't believe in me so
If you didn't love me, then you would just go

But you don't, you're here and you speak
Breathing without me, oh you'd grow so weak
You can deny it, but I see your face, dear
If you didn't love me, then you wouldn't be here

You're here, you're here and you care
Living without me, oh you wouldn't dare
You can deny it, but your eyes show it clear
If you didn't love me, then you wouldn't be here

If you didn't love me, then why do I sense your fear?
If you didn't love me, then you wouldn't be here

I know you love me, and that's why you're here
Track Name: Rebuild
We just need some time to open up our lives
Open up our minds
Find happiness in this trial
But I know for sure that the way we were
Will be the cure
Once we walk this path a little while

But I could travel the world, see every last corner
I won't be satisfied, I won't find another
It's too much too let go of, too important is this love
This won't be the end
Rebuild then begin again

Trust me when I say, never meant to hurt you that way
And I know today
Is the start of forever
No storm can keep me from seeing you so clearly
This isn't a plea
It's a promise I'll never break

But I could travel the world, see every last corner
I won't be satisfied, I won't find another
It's too much too let go of, too important is this love
This won't be the end
Rebuild then begin again

If I can't have you now, I'll have you in my dreams
In my dreams
If I can't see you now, I'll see you in my memories
We'll be making more memories

I don't want to travel the world, see every last corner
I won't be satisfied, I won't find another
It's too much too let go of, too important is our love
This won't be the end
Rebuild then begin again

Gonna rebuild this love
Then begin again
Track Name: Baby Back - Outro
If you believe in something
You should live it through and through
So I've been sitting in my corner
And I'm waiting for round two

Sometimes it still feels like you're walking next to me
I reach out for your hand but there's nothing there to see
Have all these words I've spoken just disappeared into the black?
'Cause I'm just waiting for you to say, "I want my baby back."

When are you coming home to me?
When are you coming home to me?
When are you coming home to me?
When are you coming home?

If these words were the last I said to you
Then I would be content
But I hope you know I'll always love you
And I want my baby back
