Full Circle 04:24
I found myself creeping to the edge, looking for something new. I wanted something I had not seen. I wanted more. I thought I had seen enough, day in - day out of the same old thing. So I went looking around, but I didn't know what for. Why did I think there could be any more to this life than this? And how could what I already have not be good enough? CHORUS: I've come back around to where I started from. I know... it's been a long-time comin'. There's nothing new It's just the same old song. It's all coming back to me now. Here we go again: looking for something to satisfy. Going to the same old places we've been to time after time. There's no need to look around, when all we need is right here. There's nothing else worth looking for. Why did I think there could be any more to this life than this? And how could what I already have not be good enough? CHORUS I've come full-circle. My life has come full-circle. CHORUS 2x

More Than Me 04:28
Are you searching? If so, do you know what you're searching for? It might be you've reached the end of what you can do on your own. Can I be the one to help you? Let me help you. I am the one you can turn to, 'cause I love you. CHORUS: Nobody loves you more than me Nobody else can help you see No one else can show you where you need to be, 'cause no one loves you more than me. I can show you everything you need to see Will you let me be the one? I can give you everything your heart desires Can I be the one to give it to you? Let me give it to you. I am the one you can turn to, 'cause I love you. CHORUS I love you more than anything else in this world Nothing compares to you You can look around search around, you'll never find anyone else who loves you more than I do CHORUS

Home 05:03
You had enough and went away now you find you've been chasing the wind You followed things you thought were real Now these things have come to an end I wanted you to stay but you wouldn't listen to me You wanted to go your own way But that way didn't set you free It only bound you tighter than you were before Now I wait for you to knock on my door You know you always have a place here I'm just waiting for you to come... CHORUS: Home where you belong With me, like you never were gone. I don't care what you've done What matters most is that you come back home, safe and sound Set free, no longer bound. Your joy won't be found, until you turn around. Please won't you come back home. My door is always open, and you always have a place with me. I've been waiting for you to come back, because this is where you're meant to be. When you walk through that door, we'll celebrate, because you've come back to be with me. You know you've always had a place here. I'm glad you've made the choice to come... CHORUS 2: Back home where you belong You're with me, like you never were gone. I don't care what you've done What matters most is that you've come back home, safe and sound You're set free, no longer bound. I'm glad you're back around The lost now is found. Please won't you come back home. Bridge: There's no where else no other place like this this place where you belong There's nothing else you could ever need now that you're here with me CHORUS

This Moment 03:46
I know that I don't spend enough time doing what I need to do for you. And I know I waste time on silly things instead of spending it with you. CHORUS: But right now, in this moment you are here with me. I want to make sure this moment lasts. So while I have this moment I'm gonna tell you that I love you. I want to make the most of what we have right now. I know there's nothing we can do to change what we've done in the past. And I know where we end up in the future all depends on what we're doing today. CHORUS BRIDGE: We may not have this chance again. This time may be all we have. So while we're here together, Let's make it worth our time. CHORUS

I find myself living in days of confusion In an age when nobody understands I can't help but wonder What it is that I need to do What I need in my life to make me a better man CHORUS: I need direction I need somebody to show me the way I need solutions to the problems in my life I need some answers, the kind that can only come from you Only you can save me Please help me I'm so tired of being confused I find myself walking through a minefield but it's a place of my own design Every step I take brings me closer to danger I can't go through this alone please give me a sign CHORUS BRIDGE: These days, it's hard to tell an enemy from a friend It's hard to put my trust in anyone But I know that I trust you To stay with me to the end You are by my side until everything is done One of these days, I'm gonna go and wander away too far and end up way past where I need to be That's when I'll need someone Someone who can pull me back That's when you'll hear me Calling out to you I can't go through this alone I've gotta have you Please help me I'm so tired of being confused.

Out of Place 06:26
In a matter of speaking, I find myself at a loss for words for how I feel. So now I'm reaching within myself to try to distinguish what is real. What is this place I've been drawn to? Tell me, what am I supposed to do? Please help me find within this world the place where I belong. CHORUS 1: What can I do to make things right? Is there part of me that I need to replace? I'm trying my best to keep you in sight, but it takes all I have to see your face. Your perception, when you look at me may on the surface show something clean. But a deception is what you see. These things are seldom what they seem. Why can't I show you who I am? Why can't I let you see where I stand? Please help me find within this world the place where I belong. CHORUS 2: All by myself, I won't win this fight. It can only lead me to disgrace. I don't want to be alone in the light. I don't like to feel so out of place. BRIDGE: It's all so hard and I'm so tired Don't know if I can break away I can't make it on my own Please, can you help me break these chains? I need relief from these silent pains. Please help me find within this world the place where I belong. CHORUSES

Ready 04:15
You can do what you want and say anything. You can think what you want about me, but I still won't move. and you won't get me to change my mind. You can laugh all you want about my belief in what I cannot see, but I still won't move. No, you can't get me to change my mind. CHORUS: No, I can't tell the future. I don't know what's around the next corner. But I know for sure that whatever it is that lies ahead, I'm gonna be ready. You tell me I should live my life just for today, because we only live once. But I disagree, and I'm not gonna change my ways. You can call me crazy for playing it safe, and for trying to do what's right. But I know what I need to do, and I'm not gonna change my ways. CHORUS BRIDGE: I'm gonna be ready no matter what you say. I'm gonna be ready, come what may.

Room for You 05:06
There have been times when I've fallen There have been times when I didn't believe Even though I didn't give much to you, you have never given up on me. You were there when the walls came crumbling down You came running when I called to you You are there when things are going right, giving me your love. So now it's my turn to give you all I have to give, because you deserve so much more. CHORUS 1: So with everything that's going on, and with everything I've got to do, don't worry about your place in my life, because I'll always have room for you. There's room for you. You are the one I love the most I don't have room for anybody else You don't always hear just how I feel, Because sometimes I forget to tell. You're the one who means more to me than anything else in this world. I won't let anything get in the way of giving you my love. It's so easy for me to be busy with the things I do, but they mean nothing without you. CHORUS 2: So no matter what I have to face, you'll always be here with me. Nobody else could take your place, because no matter what, there'll always be room for you. So now it's my turn to give you all I have to give, because you deserve so much more. CHORUSES

Do you remember when we first met? Remember how it felt just right? Then I was the one who walked away. You needed me, but I was nowhere in sight. But now I'm back, ready to make things new All I have, I want to give to you. CHORUS: I want to be the one to cross the line I'm gonna step out on faith and do what it takes to make you mine. I am willing to be the one to cross the line (to embrace you). I don't care what people say I want to give my love to you. Do you remember what you said? You said next time I come around, you'd be there. I stayed away too long, but now I'm here I'm ready to take a chance, to go with you anywhere. You promised me that we can make things new I'm gonna take your love and give it back to you. CHORUS BRIDGE: I want to go back to what we had before. Take me back to where we were. CHORUS

I'm living for you. I'm living for everything you are. I'm giving you everything I have to give. I'm looking to you for everything I need. You are the only one worth living for. I know that without you I'd be nothing at all. I know there's nobody else who could hear me when I call. I'm living for you and everything's going fine. I'm better than ever before. My life is good. I've got no worries, because you've taken them away. You are the only one worth living for. I know that I can't depend on just my own mind. You are the greatest joy that I could ever find. I'm living for you. I'm living for everything you are. I'm giving you everything I have to give. I'm looking to you for everything I need. You are the only one worth living for.

Confessional 05:23
Oh, this pain inside my head (Sometimes I feel) like I'd be better off dead (Does that surprise you?) There's a lot you don't know about me There's a lot in my life that you don't see You'd be shocked to know what I struggle with You'd be shocked to hear what's tearing me apart (I know) you have secrets like me (I know you have lies) you want me to believe (It doesn't surprise me) There's a lot you keep bottled up inside There's a lot that you try your best to hide You'd be shocked at how much we have in common You'd be shocked to find out how you and I are alike I know what you're going through Because I know I've been there myself I've felt the pain you're feeling I know exactly who you are CHORUS: Everybody's got something to hide We all have a story to tell You and I need to let it all out Bring it out in the open Mirror, mirror on the wall (What do you see?) Why am I scared of the image looking back at me? They're tearing me up inside All these secrets that I try to hide I know you relate to what I'm telling you I know that you have secrets, too. You know what I'm going through Because you know you've been there yourself You've felt the pain I'm feeling You know exactly who I am CHORUS BRIDGE: I open myself like a book and show you what's inside the struggle within me is living and real I know what you're going through Because I know I've been there myself You've felt the pain I'm feeling You know exactly who I am CHORUS

I've been waiting for oh so long for you to decide. You have to make a choice, there's nothing in between. I've been waiting patiently for a sign from you. Please show me where you want to be. I know you'd rather I decide, but it's not up to me. CHORUS: Only you know how all of this will end. You're the only one who has control. Every day you spend your time walking aimlessly. You have no direction and no clue. Meanwhile, I want to help you, if you'll just turn to me. Just show me where you want to be. I know you'd rather I decide, but it's not up to me. CHORUS 2: Only you know how all of this will end. You're the only one who has control. Only you can tell me where your destination is. You're the only one who knows.

about

From Eric:

"Frame of Mind, like all of my other solo releases, is a completely a cappella album, with all of the sounds produced by the voice or some other part of the anatomy. The majority of the album has a very rock-oriented sound, but at times it moves into R&B territory.

"I spent roughly 3 years in the studio working on this album. I began with around 40 different song ideas and slowly worked my way down to 18 tracks to record, picking 12 for the final album. The lyrics on Frame of Mind are my most personal to date, covering all aspects of the human condition from depression to love to addiction and beyond."
