Alone 04:20
I I feel so alone like there's no one real in this world and you make me feel so alone like there's no one else in this room and I feel like I'm far from home too many people too little hope and you'd rather I disappear because to you it's like I'm not here
Love's gone wrong somewhere along the way and gone are the days of smiles and stares a rose may replace the blank look on her face but she'd rather be with someone else instead When you've travelled the world to find the right thing hoping to find ways you've never seen but no one finds their way to you romance is dead And no matter what I do Can't keep myself from thinking of the times we used to know of the places we would go And everytime I talk with you Can't keep myself from feeling That what we had was something good, and now it's gone My girl, I hope that you're in love, and he with you 'cause there's hardly a man who's good and true and I've never found another girl like you my passion is dead
Rainy Days 03:37
look outside the rain is fallin' I can't believe the day's almost gone by the cats are sleepin' underneath the bed and the clouds are looking kinda sad the sun is gone and the windows seem to cry they miss the golden rays of light I don't know how long this is gonna stay wish it would all just fade away and through it all I don't know what to say both the sky and my heart have turned gray I need some of love's sunshine sent my way I don't need another rainy day
feels like the start of things breathing something new the best uncertainty to put me in this mood feels like the start of things I've never known before I cut my strings when I leave out that door this is the start of things that make me want to live breaking every wall in me feels like the start of things I've never known before I become real when I leave out that door
Weakness 05:40
when I first met you we only talked for an hour but by then I knew that you were something special you were here only a while and though we promised to each other we'd be in touch what I really wanted was to be together until the end of time and when I see you I start feeling like an eagle soaring to the sun I will not lose you you're my weakness you are the only one who makes me feel this way I'm going crazy I'm going crazy In the picture that you sent you looked so sexy I wish you weren't so far away I think about you always I feel powerless I need you with me
Echodream 03:35
you are everything to me you mean everything to me there's nothing else left to see the world is empty and maybe the stars are lonely but humming sweetly for you and me the sky's our cover - and pillow leaves the world is free for you and me the world is free for you and me
it seems as though my friends have gone been waiting here for long I left a message on their phone but no one ever calls Every single day goes by and no one comes around I don't know where my friends have gone I just sit here all day long and I don't know I don't know oh no Remember all the things we've done yeah we had so much fun Remember all the late night talks and staring at the moon But every single day goes by and I sit here in my room we used to share our dreams before where did they all go? I don't know...
Given Up 06:16
One of these days, when your heart's in the ground and you feel like you've lost, and you've given up One of these days, when you've got nowhere to go you'll know what it's like to be me One of these days, when you give it all you've got you think that you've won, but you're only second best One of these days, when you've lost hope in it all you'll know what it's like to be me cause the days just keep going by, and nothing changes. cause the days just keep going by, and nothing's better. cause the days just keep going by, and nothing happens. cause the days just keep going by, and nothing matters.
Gone 06:54

released December 31, 2002

Written, performed, and produced by Jorge Martinez except: Lead guitar on "Rainy Days" written by Drew Simchik, backing vocals performed by Kristen Pardun. Additional guitars on "Where Have My Friends Gone?" written and performed by David Wirth.

“sweetly brooding pop... hanging guitars, overlapping loops and hypnotic grooves...”
- Mark Barton, Losing Today

“he has taken the post-rock instrumental as a starting point and composed some fragile and atmospheric songs over that backing”
- Feedback Issue 74

“tales of heartbreak and despair... often times recalling Luna and the early brooding Hood material”
- Chris McFarlane, IndiePages
