Track Name: Copper Lee - Spire Sessions
My Copper Lee, my Copper Lee
I found thee once upon a...
My Copper Lee

Luck that you gave me, luck that you gave me
It cannot be overstated
My Copper Lee

Relentless dream, relentless dream
You made it seem...we'd last forever
My Copper Lee

I did believe, I did believe
That you and me were bound for glory
My Copper Lee

Abandon me. Abandoned me...
Serenity, gone so quickly
My Copper Lee

My Copper Lee, my Copper Lee
I found thee once upon a...
My Copper Lee
Track Name: How Long Till Dawn - Spire Sessions
Waking up twice an hour
Sounds of the night grow louder
I can still feel something
From the restless night before
Memories, trying to be
Something to believe
How long till dawn?

Snapshots and memory making
Black and white and fading
There’s a man looking nowhere
Saying “Son, I should have done…
All these things... I could be"
Endlessly in between
How long till dawn?

Running down dreams forgotten
Races we run so often
But have I been running blindly?
Everyday we’re shining on
Distantly I can see
Glimmering, twilight gleams
How long till dawn?
Track Name: Circling Sideways - Spire Sessions
I don’t know which way to run
Away from the fray or off towards the sun
Maybe I’ll stand my ground, maybe I’ll turnaround
Just for today, please take me away

How can I follow my gut when I’ve been cut down for not keeping my mouth shut
Surrounding me, I’m not sure who to be
Just for today, please take me away

For now, I’ll keep circling sideways
For I don’t know which way to run
All this surrounding me, I’m not sure who to be
Just for today, please take me away

What a terrible mess I’m in, this test it ain’t showing the best that I’ve been
It’s harder now, can I be stronger now?
Just for today, please take me away

But for now, I’ll keep circling sideways
For I don’t know which way to run
Cause it’s getting harder now, why can’t I be stronger now?
Just for today, please take me away

I don’t know which way to run
Away from the fray or off towards the sun
How I long for yesterday, what would the old me say?
Just for today, please take me today.
Track Name: 10 Years - Spire Sessions
Highs and lows, peaks and the valleys
Rivers running free
Whitest snow falls, it’s getting darker
It’s getting hard to see

Cold wind blows, hearts are heavy
See it in my eyes
I know, it’s getting harder
All the years gone by

Where we going wrong?

Do you, do you remember
All of our hopes and dreams
10 years of hell or heartache
Breaking our beliefs

Frosted pain, stand by the fire
Looking back, I laugh
Long gone, but I am stronger
At least I made a path

Where we going wrong?

Do I get to see?
