Track Name: Fire Eyes
Some things are worth the wait.
Some things are worth a fight.
I push, you pull away.
We do this dance all night.
I will melt you with the fire in my eyes.
All the things you want to hear...I won't even have to say them to you, to you.
I will melt you with the fire in my eyes.
All the things I could have said...I won't even have to say them to you, to you.
I know they'll come a time when you cannot deny.
I feel you wanting me.
You know I want you to.
I will melt you with the fire in my eyes.
All the things I could have said...I won't even have to say them to you, to you.
Track Name: HeartBreaker
She is a real heartbreaker and she's just the one for you.
Leave your tricks and games at home.
Show her the real you.
She'll stop at nothing.
I think you've finally met your match.
What are you waiting for?
Don't miss your...

She won't leave you alone.
If not her then another.
Try to escape the burn and you'll never feel the fire.
Let her fill you up.
Work to try to keep her.
The ride of your life, your life, your life...
Track Name: Limits
I pushed it to the limit.
I took things as far as they could go, go go.
I wanted to stick with it.
I thought I knew the end but no, no, no.

I am to blame for my lack of shame.
All we know is that nothing stays the same.
You can count your days.
You can fill them up.
Live it up, don't give up.
Give everything you've got.

Now my eyes are open wide that it's all out on the table.
I've got nothing to hide.
Crucify me if it makes you feel better.

I didn't see it coming.
Or did I really know it all along?

I am to blame for my lack of shame.
All we know is that nothing stays the same.
You can count your days.
You can fill them up.
Live it up, don't give up.
Give everything you've got.

Now my eyes are open wide that it's all out on the table.
I've got nothing to hide.
Crucify me if it makes you feel better.
Track Name: Situation
I see you've got a situation and you're looking for the door.
I can tell my your expression that you can't breathe anymore.
I recognize your situation because I've been there before.
I knew that something had to happen, that I had to take control.
I could feel the expiration.
I could feel it in my bones.
Had to ask the hardest question: what are you waiting for?
Track Name: Sunlight
The days are so short.
The nights are so long.
Will we ever win?
Passing time is on my mind until the darkness ends.
Until the darkness ends.

Take me to where the sunlight is brightest.
I'll let it burn me if it desires.
Can we go somewhere and just be?

Take me to where the sunlight is brightest.
I'll let it burn me if it desires.
Can we go somewhere you and me?
Can we go somewhere?

The cold wind tried to break our skin.
It howls its lonely lies...howls it lies.
Fireside the signals rise.
We will make it through.
We will make it through.

Take me to where the sunlight is brightest.
I'll let it burn me if it desires.
Can we go somewhere you and me?
Can we go somewhere?
Track Name: Dream
The moment right before you wake up and realize that it is just a dream.
You lick your lips and the sensation comforts you to know that you're still here.
Is this how you meant it to be?
Are there things that you'd like to say?
Don't let me stop you. I won't be the one to.
Is there somewhere you'd rather be?
Are there things that you'd like to change?
Don't let me stop you. I won't be the one to try...
Try to stop you.

I thought that this is what you wanted.
There is always room for changing minds.
Take a step back, ask some questions.
Maybe this is it, maybe it's time.

Is this how you meant it to be?
Are there things that you'd like to say?
Don't let me stop you. I won't be the one to.
Is there somewhere you'd rather be?
Are there things that you'd like to change?
Don't let me stop you. I won't be the one to try...
Try to stop you.
Track Name: Nothing But Words
Just like the wind through the trees blowing the leaves.
There's nothing like words between us.
Just like the waves in the sea come as they please.
There's nothing but words between us.

No harm can come.
No action can be undone.
We'll keep it light we'll keep it fun.
No matter what we say time will help it wash away.
It will always be there.
It just goes changing everyday.

Just like the wind through the trees blowing the leaves.
There's nothing like words between us.
Just like the waves in the sea come as they please.
There's nothing but words between us.

So long as we try to always speak with honesty.
I open up, you open up to me.
With everything we say, we just go learning everyday.
It will always be there.
I won't let it go away.

Just like the wind through the trees blowing the leaves.
There's nothing like words between us.
Just like the waves in the sea come as they please.
There's nothing but words between us.
Track Name: You Make The Days
This kind only happens once in a lifetime.
I know this to be true because the way you are making me feel is better than the first time.
I know there's only one way for this to go.
We're gonna let the record spin 'till the last song.
And that'll be our cue that our time is over.

The things you say you me they will be on repeat in my fantasy.
I will keep them alive.

You make the days so much brighter.
I long for you ways.
The safest place remains to be with you.
I could live inside your arms.
Do you feel the same?

This kind only happens once in a lifetime.
I know this to be true because the way you are making me feel is better than the first time.
I know there's only one way for this to go.
We're gonna let the record spin 'till the last song.
And that'll be our cue that our time is over.

The things I say to you, you will always remember them to be the truth.
And how you felt alive. Alive....

You make the days so much brighter.
I long for you ways.
For you to show me.
You make the days so much brighter.
I long for you ways
The safest place remains to be with you.
I could live inside your arms.
Do you feel the same?
Track Name: Cheerleader
We have all been though times of trouble
We have all seen better days
One day you feel like you're on the mountain
And the next you are down again

Everybody falls, some get up
That is what you have to do
I will always be by your side
I believe, I believe in you

If you try your best then I will cheer you on
You can count on me where there is no one
I cannot promise that it will be easy
But if you look for me you will see me
(repeat)

Some days you feel like you're going nowhere
Some times you don't know what to do
You think that maybe you should start over
But your fears are stopping you

Everybody doubts, some go on
Do the things that you want to do
I will always be by your side
I believe I believe in you

If you try your best then I will cheer you on
You can count on me where there is no one
I cannot promise that it will be easy
But if you look for me you will see me
(repeat)

The good ones never leave
They go away but they come back
Where ever you go I won't be far behind...
