Track Name: Direct Sunlight
promise me we’ll always be together
we make sense in all types of weather
take a dive, jump right in
even if you drown

get a load of that sunshine in your life
they play shadow games
I play with the light
promise me we’ll always be

overhead, underneath you see it
either side of what you thought you needed
dime for dime
blowing through the seasons
tell me when you’re high

get a load of that sunshine in your life
they play shadow games
I play with the light
promise me we’ll always be
kiss me tight

sunshine
they play shadow games
I play with the light
they play shadow games
Track Name: I Feel Alive
when I saw you wanted to spend the night
with someone else at home I knew it wasn’t right

I feel alive looking in your eyes

conversation that I did not like
faces in the street I wish I didn’t recognize

I feel alive looking in your eyes

lost nights, trying to remember
when I’m in your arms I can finally surrender

I feel alive looking in your eyes
Track Name: Pirouette
company what for
no appetite
I don’t want no more
invitation to another jubilee
on my hands and knees
bitch please
out on the prowl
running on empty

pirouette on the pavement ground
that drop of rain sound
the spirit wept
even in your old town
you’re on your own now
you’re on your own

a silhouette of a stranger said
when lying in bed
you’re on your own now
you’re on your own

enemy at war
no end in sight
no one to fight for
captivation always takes a hold of me
I don’t hold the key
you’re free
walkin’ around
knowing you kept me

pirouette on the pavement ground
that drop of rain sound
the spirit wept
even in your old town
you’re on your own now
you’re on your own

a silhouette of a stranger said
when lying in bed
you’re on your own now
you’re on your own
Track Name: Ballads & Sad Movies
looking out at the cold world
looking out at the cold world

if I said I could be
more than can real
listen up, this what I have here

before when we used to be
together in our fear
listen, what I said I said it to the mirror

I tore out a piece of paper
folded up a swan
longing for the days
there were hours in your arms
now I got nobody there
keeping me warm

if I didn’t know you back then I’d be different
but I don’t know you now
and I don’t know when I will again

looking out at the cold world
looking out at the cold world

my favorite ballads and sad movies
don’t do nothing for me now
unfamiliar ending and sound

if I thought I could be
standing at your door
listen I just don’t know who I am anymore

i’m tearing up that piece of paper
righting all my wrongs
longing for the days
there were hours in your arms
now I got nobody there keeping me warm

if I didn’t know you back then I’d be different
if I didn’t know you back then I’d always wish I did
but I don’t know you now
and I don’t know when I will again
no I don’t know when I will
Track Name: Colder & Closer
tripping out the bedroom
double check the door is locked
someone out to get you
stranger living in your thoughts
what would you know

slip into nostalgia
sweat dripping down your neck
now you really want her
all the lovers that you just forget

what would you know
they all keep holding you close
colder and closer
they all keep holding you close
till it’s over

searching constellations
seeing if the stars align
signs are myths like nations
shapes drawn over crooked lines

what would you know
they all keep holding you close
colder and closer
they all keep holding you close
till it’s over

all the lovers that you left behind
all the lovers
lovers that you left behind
keep holding you
keep holding you
keep holding you close

closer
they all keep holding you close
till it’s over
they all keep holding you close
Track Name: Witching Hour
deep dive
slithering height of the skyline
blue skies
on another flight
eye on the prize
highlighted hair and the eyeline
emphasize women on the side

string along
pearls around her neck
serpent they’ve become
choking every breath
and I bite my tongue

don’t remember what i’m running from
twenty years into millennium
had a dream
tomorrow come
you weren’t in it
i’m missing something
when i’m in your arms
this is good for nothing
won’t be long
in the witching hour or the dawn
in the witching hour or the dawn

a boys pride
vanishing under the spotlight
many sides
surface and ignite

swallow tears
the wind swept
pressure to become
till there’s nothing left
and I bite my tongue

don’t remember what i’m running from
twenty years into millennium
had a dream
tomorrow come
you weren’t in it
I’m missing something
when i’m in your arms
this is good for nothing
won’t be long
in the witching hour or the dawn
in the witching hour or the dawn

eye on the prize
highlighted hair and the eyeline
emphasize women on the side
Track Name: Take Down
take down
for many reasons which we know now
it was a shakedown
echo through the final days
scenes get in the way
weighing what you want to say
is there really no other way
still no one sees
the person they’re sitting across
I’m at a loss


my picture of you
leaning on your hands, looking that way
so clear to me now
you were thinking about somebody else
are you still awake
did you ever look down
at my sleeping face
I wish I knew why we pretend
why did I stay
a curtain dancing by the wind
are you awake
Track Name: Drowning in Paradise
show me love
show me off
comfort me
touch my heart

open up
open mind
tenderness
every time

(show me love)
only you and I tonight
(show me love)
drowning in Paradise
(show me love)
right now baby

every kiss
every touch
let me bloom
next to you

only you and I tonight
drowning in paradise
right now baby
right there baby
right now baby
all I want is you to show me love

show me love for a lifetime

montre moi l’amour pour la vie
c’ennoyer au paradis
impatient pour minuit
fait moi venir toute suite

je m’ennuie quand tu n’est pas là
je passe tous les journées sur le divan
je me leve soulement pour me doucher
je ne veux que tu me touchais

only you and I tonight
drowning in Paradise
right now baby
right there baby
right now baby
all I want is you to show me love
Track Name: OK Fine Whatever
in the right dress
head tilted looking back
tiffany’s best
lights up with a flash
hand is on your shoulder
handing you the world
world that’s getting colder
I think I used to know her

the very last song
holding it together
it’s alright to long
okay fine whatever
you are what you want
the path that you run
(the path that you run)
forever till it’s done

in a nice place
never know what to say
don’t know who you are
with his arms around your waist
dresses hanging on the line
empty promises in your pocket
you say you’re doing fine
I think i read about it

the very last song
holding it together
it’s alright to long
okay fine whatever
you are what you want
the path that you run
(the path that you run)
forever till it’s done

watch it go by
want to make it better
it’s alright to cry
okay fine whatever
you are what you want
the path that you run
(the path that you run)
forever till it’s done
Track Name: Looking to Remember
hey now, yeah what you sayin
haven’t been seeing much of you around
on your way to find
c’mon make up your mind
there’s no guarantee there
nobody here to show you the way

looking to Remember
give me a reason
face in the mirror

who you really see there
you decide what you wanna be
days go by denying
why you say you wanna stay the same
everything you hiding
c’mon now
don’t you know they see it anyway

looking to Remember
give me a reason
face in the mirror
tell me who you really see there
do you believe
you decide what you wanna be

looking to Remember
give me a reason
face in the mirror
tell me who you really see there
do you believe you decide what you wanna be
you decide what you wanna be
Track Name: Too Much
a lonely nature occupies me
time elapsed since you and I been
space, mistrust

this touch is just too close for us
I don’t want what you want
(too much)
sometimes I wish I’d fall for a love
I don’t want anyone
(too much)

truth is you’ve been talking just a little
how you’ve been stuck in the middle
wait, that’s enough

this touch is just too close for us
I don’t want what you want
(too much)
sometimes I wish I’d fall for a love
I don’t want anyone
(too much)

not enough to understand this
emptiness in what you’re saying
c’mon, take me for granted
when did our love make me this way

watch you bending out of shape
in this figure eight we keep on pacing
get it straight, don’t discuss
this touch is just too close for us

not enough to understand this
emptiness in what you’re saying
c’mon take me for granted
when did our love make me this way
baby ooh you took your chance you had it
it’s just too much, too little, too late
when did our love make me this way
it’s just too much, too little, too late
Peace
