Track Name: Take The Sun
Take The Sun

All you do is talk black and white
About what colour means
Envy tearing you all up inside
And you can’t wash it clean
What could ever change your attitude
When promises are lies
The sky cries

You take the sun
And have your fun
You take it from the sky
And make me pay for every ray
You take it away from me
You take the sun

All you do is try to drag me down
And make me bleed away
Fill the empty space inside of you
Covered by shade
Light is fading

You take the sun
And have your fun
You take it from the sky
And make me pay for every ray
You take it away from me
You take the sun

You take it away from me
You take the sun

You can’t bring me down

You take the sun
And have your fun
Take it from the sky
And make me pay for every ray
You take it away from me

You take the sun
And have your fun
Take it from the sky
And make me pay for every ray
You take it away from me

You take the sun
You take the sun
You take the sun
You take the sun
Track Name: Into You
Into You

Walking on the side of the road
Following you wherever you go
Trying not to make it a secret
How long I can keep it
I don’t know
You got me

Falling Into you
Into you
I’m into you
Into you

Walking on the side of my dreams
Hope not to wake up
Not open my eyes
You might not want it to happen
But it did and you don’t realize
How you got me

Falling into you
Into you
I’m into you
Into you

Why am I so damn shy to be
To show you the colours
You paint everyday pictures to see
You make things real
The way you let ‘em be
Just like me

Falling into you
Into you
I’m into you
Into you

I’m into you
Into you
I’m into you
Into you
Track Name: Maybe Yes, Maybe No
Maybe Yes, Maybe No

I know it ain’t easy
Easy to be just a little part of this galaxy
Time taught me better, life turned around
Lost myself
I’m so glad you found me

Maybe yes, maybe no
There ain’t no way I don’t wanna go
Without you beside me

I followed the short cuts
Thought I was smart
Then the tables turned and I went back to the start
And you told me to carry on
Step by step and go for the long haul

Maybe yes, maybe no
There ain’t no guarantees that I know
Maybe you, maybe me
If there’s a difference I don’t wanna see
I’m so glad you found me
I’m so glad you found me

Standing on shaky ground
Sometimes lost, sometimes found
Let’s cruise together far away
And ride the light towards the day
Today

Maybe yes, maybe no
There ain’t no guarantees for nothing at all
Maybe cruel, maybe kind
We can give each other peace of mind
Maybe yes, maybe no
Maybe yes, maybe no
I’m so glad I found you
I’m so glad I found you
Track Name: You're A Sin
You’re A Sin

Lying in an empty bed in an empty room
Waiting for you to call and tell me that you’ll be here soon
My heart is hanging over and my body’s aching too
Many times I tried to resist
But there ain’t nothing I can do

How can something bad feel so good
How can something bad feel like you
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Keeping out of range and out of mind for awhile
Living on the edge of the real world
It keeps putting us on trial

How can something bad feel so good
How can something bad feel like you

You’re a drug, you’re a sin
You shut me out of everything
You’re a drug, you’re a sin
There ain’t no chance of me giving in

You’re a sin
You’re a sin
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Push it in lil’ deeper, give me all you’ve got today
A nice lil’ overdose of you should help me ease this pain
Before I go insane

How can something bad feel so good
How can something bad feel like you
How can something bad feel so good
How can something bad feel like you
How can something bad feel so good
How can something bad feel like you

Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Track Name: Foolish
Foolish

Foolish, foolish

Don’t cover your eyes
Don’t pull down the blinds
It’s been dark too long
And it’s poisoned our minds
Didn’t recognize it then
How I pushed you aside
Gave up with no fight

It’s foolish to let it slip away
Foolish - Now I know how love dies
Foolish - Pretending it’s OK
While I got lost within

Said it all before
Please forgive me when I repeat myself
I love you everything
I’m here to confess
Just get out of this mess

It’s foolish to let it slip away
Foolish - Now I know how love dies
Foolish - Pretending it’s OK
While I got lost within

Take these broken parts
And finally make ‘em one again
Hear the clock is ticking
Let time heal what’s left
And bring on a new shine
A new shine

Foolish - How long am I able to take it
Foolish - Don’t wanna know, don’t wanna go
Foolish - Don’t care for anything but myself
Foolish - And dying for a brand new me
Track Name: Shut The World Down Honey
Shut The World Down Honey

Anger dies beneath the night
So let it cool down
Fireflies give us light
It’s all we need now
Suck my love straight from my lips
And hold me tonight
Hold me tomorrow

Shut the world down honey
Bring in the night
We got all we need
So lay down
Lay down, tonight

Close the curtains and leave the world
Outside of us now
Mute the talking of senseless words
And love me tonight
Love me tomorrow

Shut the world down honey
Bring in the night
We got what we want here
This is our time
Let love rule us baby
Let me be the one
Shut the world down honey
And lay down

Lay down
Lay down
Lay down, tonight

Shut the world down honey
Bring the night
Shut the world down baby
Dim the lights
We got what we wanted
Cause I got you
Shut the world down honey
And you got me
Shut the world down honey
Cause I got you
Shut the world down honey
Track Name: Everything I Need
Everything I Need

It had a lot of meaning
Cause I knew what I wanted to be
And it felt like dreaming
But was real just like destiny

Along my way different stations made me change
Day by day something was new

The more I wished
The more I gave in
The more I learned to believe
About the meaning
Of I’ve got everything I need

Now I wake up every morning
With beautiful you by my side
What more could I want
Then to write a song about your precious smile

Along the way we learn how much it takes
Every day brings something new

The more I wished
The more I gave in
The more I learned to believe
About the meaning
Of I’ve got everything I need
The more I am
The more I know
The more I understand

Life must sometimes bleed
Taming all our needs

The more I turn
To what I am
The more I learn to face this man

The more I wished
The more I gave in
The more I learned to believe
The more I am
The more I know
I’ve got everything
Everything I need
Everything I need
Everything I need
Everything I need
Track Name: Was Away Lies
Wash Away Lies

Keep it all inside of you
Don’t let no one see what you do
You’re better off when you’re alone
Don’t ask me how it feels

What’s behind that pale moon face
Living big a sad disgrace
Giving ain’t no word you know
Cause all you do is take

How many rules are there to break
How many wrong turns does it take
How many tears do we have to cry
To wash away your lies

What you want ain’t what you got
There ain’t no way to buy good luck
Selling us your fake smiles
Dependent ‘til you die
And you wonder why, what went wrong

How many rules are there to break
How many wrong turns does it take
How many tears do we have to cry
To wash away your lies
Your lies

How many rules can you ignore
Or push aside
To erase your lies

How many rules are there to break
How many wrong turns does it take
How many tears do we have to cry
To wash away, wash away your lies

Your lies
Your lies
Track Name: Good Time
Good Time

Pick your face up off the floor
Make your feet head for the door
Hear the sorry serenade
Of all the tears you cried in vain
Nothing's sacred like a kiss
Has it all come down to this?
Knocking dreams out of their seat
Off your knees get on your feet

And tell me one thing
Just tell me now

Hey, are you having a good time, a good time
Hey, are you feeling alright
Hey, are you having a good time, a good time
Now are you doing alright

Magic words and silhouettes
Memories you can’t forget
Back when all you had was time
Never paid it any mind
All the years of total bliss
Has it all come down to this?
Don’t you need ‘em anymore?

Tell me one thing
Can you tell me now

Hey, are you having a good time, a good time
Hey, are you feeling alright
Hey, are you having a good time, a good time
Hey, are you doing alright

Things don’t always turn for real
Not for you and not for me
But still I keep my hopes up high
And one day I know that love will shine down on me

So tell me
Just tell me now
Why can’t you kill my rain
And cheer me up the way you used to every day

Hey, are you having a good time, a good time
Hey, are you feeling alright
Hey, are you having a good time, a good time
Hey, are you feeling alright
Now are you doing alright
Now are you doing alright
Now are you doing alright
Now are you feeling fine
Track Name: No One's Around
No One’s Around

Lock the door leave it all outside
Cuddle up, turn out the lights
Close your eyes it’s time to flee

Dream about your next success
Or about the girls you’ve missed
While they’re seducing you
Now that’s what nights are for

When no one’s around you
Everything’s allowed, do what you want to
Drifting far away to new fields
Where no one’s around
No one’s around

Feel a whole new you inside
Sensitive so come alive
Nothing can stop it now

All the magic in your hands
Push it further and back again
Jump stars and catch their glow
Hold on and don’t let it go

When no one’s around you
Everything’s allowed, do what you want to
No one has the right to interrupt you
Drifting far away to new fields
Where no one’s around
No one’s around you tonight

You tonight

Every night breaks with time
Puts you back to the drawn line
And another crack in your mind

When no one’s around you
Everything’s allowed, do what you want to
No one has the right to disturb you
Drifting far away to new fields
Where no one’s around
No one’s around

No one’s around
No one’s around
No one’s around
No one’s around
Track Name: Favourite Waste Of Time
Favourite Waste Of Time

Well I’m not the kinda guy
Who would die just to fall in love
Or try to fill in for someone else
Always getting shoved

But now that I’ve met you
It’s something I just can’t explain
You’ve got my world mixed up
Help me sort it out again

Let me be your favourite waste of time
I’ll be yours and baby you’ll be mine
Let me be your favourite waste of time

You may think I’m crazy
Well, you just might be right
Crazy for you and the things you do
Can you read it in my eyes
Can you read it in my eyes

Let me be your favourite waste of time
I’ll be yours and baby you’ll be mine
Let me be your favourite waste of time

I want you to want me
I need you to understand
Something happened that wasn’t planned
And I wanna be in it with you

Let me be your favourite waste of time
I’ll be yours and baby you’ll be mine
Let me be your favourite waste of time
Let me be your favourite waste of time
And be with you

Let me be
Let me be
Let me be
