Track Name: A World Away
You shine like an evening star
I heard that you're doing better
Still, you're a world away

So I watch you from afar
I know I will reach you on some fortunate day
Still, you're a world away

I fly higher than a million mountains
But only in my dreams
So I stare into the dusty air 'til the end of the day
Still, you're a world away

I'm ready to trade orange in for blue
To feel gravity's pull; it's true that I am ready to pay
You're only a world away

I'll fly higher than a million mountains
Eyes fixed upon the queen
I know that we will be together one fortunate day
Still, you're a world away

All of my life, I've heard the stories
And I've looked to the stars
All of my life, I've watched you from Mars

Sitting at the foot of the Olympus Mons
By this time tomorrow, I'll be gone
Pale blue marble with a swirl of white
I'm gonna dream of you tonight!
Track Name: Icy Red
Icy red, your heart is deep
It's filling in with everything that I packed
You folded them neatly, put 'em in a stack
You take it all, what I push
I just don't know how you deal
When I see red, oh I see red
My heart pumps lead, it's icy red

You're on the path, you're on the path
And I am the obstacle lying in wait
You're on the path, you're on the path
And I am the obstacle trying far too late

Together we'll slink on, striking familiar chords
Let's slam into reverse, evade the challenge words

We made our bed, one side is cold
The roof's blown off, won't you be gone
When I wake, and I see red
Deserved you said, it's icy red

You're on the path, you're on the path
And I am the obstacle still lying in wait

We could have played on, striking familiar chords
Slamming in reverse, evade the challenge words
