Track Name: Placerville
Somewhere outside of Placerville I lost your heart.
Somewhere outside of Placerville I lost my chance at a brand new start.
Through all the sleet and the snow and the fog and the rain,
I knew it was your heart I could not tame.

Somewhere outside of Placerville I lost your heart.
Somewhere outside of Placerville I lost my chance at a brand new start.
It still hurts to look into your hazel eyes,
but still within nothing there is nothing I despise.
Track Name: Forgive Me
You drove away, down from the mountain-
I knew I'd gone too far.
I couldn't help but look through the window,
as you got in your car.
I never meant to stand in the background,
you were a shining star.

And whoever thought it'd end this way?
And whoever thought I'd say goodbye?
I never thought it'd end this way.
I never thought I'd say goodbye.

You were so fair standing in the kitchen,
with your back to me.
Everyone watched as you told your story,
something embarrassing.
I touched your arm for one fleeting moment,
then said something mean.

And I never meant to push you away.
I got caught up in these games we play.
It's not the end of our story,
I hope that you can forgive me.
Track Name: In The End
In the cold Tahoe sun,
there's a game still unwon.
But still I persist,
though in this place no hope exists.
But forever, we'll still fight-
though there's no hope,
we still see light.
They might take my heart away
but with the trees my heart will stay.

When I left the place, I felt renewed.
Unshakable grace, I still pursue.
And in the end, if there's nothing left.
I know that I have tried my best.
