Track Name: Love In Jealousy
Happiness is far and few and in between
But I finally found my scene
You can’t keep your filthy paws
Away and it unveils all of your flaws

Cuz sometimes the craving washes common sense away
Sometimes self-love is more than love in jealousy
You know when you play with fire you might get burned
Oh baby sometimes self-love is more than love in jealousy

We are always told to aim high
But when I do I feel a bullet hit my back
I feel pressure on my heart
And then the bullet bounces back

Cuz sometimes the craving washes common sense away
Sometimes self-love is more than love in jealousy
You know when you play with fire you might get burned
Oh baby sometimes self-love is more than love in jealousy

You may try to pry my hands
But I don’t give a damn

Sometimes the craving washes common sense away
Sometimes self-love is more than love in jealousy
You know when you play with fire you might get burned
Oh baby sometimes self-love is more than love in jealousy x2
Track Name: Carry Me
Oh, oh
Oh, oh

Two by two they march
And hold their flags up in the sky
Fighting for their life
With thoughts of only the Most High
We send our letters of love
And prayers through the night
Never knowing the truth
Cuz we can’t bear the sight

The skies fill with fog
Causing ice to break apart
Worlds flip upside down
Tearing your heart
Looking for someone to blame
But not from within
It may be too late
To change where we’ve been

Won’t you spread your wings and carry me
To the moon and under the sea
What are we living for?
Fighting peace with war?
Won’t you spread your wings and carry me

A child waits all night long
For a better day
Thankful for the ones
Who care enough to stay
Food was scarce and hope was lost
Until you came around
Lifting his spirits
Up off the ground

Won’t you spread your wings and carry me
To the moon and under the sea
What are we living for?
Fighting peace with war?
Won’t you spread your wings and carry me

Won’t you hold me?
I can feel you
Arms wrapped tightly
It’s our secret

Won’t you spread your wings and carry me
To the moon and under the sea
What are we living for?
Fighting peace with war?
Won’t you spread your wings and carry me

Won’t you spread your wings and carry me (Carry me)
To the moon and under the sea (Carry me)
What are we living for?
Fighting peace with war?
Won’t you spread your wings and carry me

Oh, oh
Oh, oh
Oh, oh
Oh, oh
Track Name: Princes And Kings
I believe when love goes round
Time stands still for a moment now and the clouds begin to clear
And when pride falls down to the ground
An unseen miracle appears and the sun shines without fear
And after power before humility
Beggars start their lonely crawl and that’s when nighttime starts to fall

And I can’t tell why everyone’s not all right
And I can’t tell why everything’s gone awry

But peace can only survive when there’s one God
When princes and kings are ruling no more

We look everywhere but in the mirror
When searching for an answer to our endless prayers
And when our walls begin to tumble down
Our eyes try to see what only our hearts can feel
And every time we turn our backs on love
We become paralyzed by our sins and crazy lies

And I can’t tell why everyone’s not all right
And I can’t tell why everything’s gone awry

But peace can only survive when there’s one God
When princes and kings are ruling no more

Ooh x2

I can’t tell why everyone’s not all right (Ooh)
And I can’t tell why everything’s gone awry (Ooh)

But peace can only survive when there’s one God (Ooh)
When princes and kings are ruling no more (Ooh)

When princes and kings are ruling no more x3
Track Name: Keep Breathing
The world is upside down and inside out
And it’s keeping you underground
Voices follow the lonely path
That steps in your shadow
Clouds become your sunshine
With darkness lurking around you

Keep breathing
With or without you
I’ll keep breathing
And do it all again

Pull yourself together now
Put the pieces back where they belong
Don’t waste anymore of your time
Just sing yourself a new song
Play it over and over
In your head till you’ve won

Keep breathing
With or without you
I’ll keep breathing
And do it all again

Over and over again x2

Keep breathing
With or without you
I’ll keep breathing
And do it all (again) x3
Track Name: Back In The Day
I remember when
I’d ride my bike a mile or two
And runaway for a few
Just to come back home
And forget why I ever left
In the first place

Take my hand
Let’s take a short walk
And leave the door unlocked
Without any care in sight
There it was
The moment so darn colorful
When life was pure and simple
That was back in the day

It feels like it was just yesterday
I was laughing
Until I was crying
And life could never pass us by
Without ever knowing
We were really alive

Take my hand
Let’s take a short walk
And leave the door unlocked
Without any care in sight
There it was
The moment so darn colorful
When life was pure and simple
That was back in the day

Take a real good look
At the world today
You better say a prayer to stay
Because in the end
It’s just you and me
Oh baby, what do you say

Take my hand
Let’s take a short walk
And leave the door unlocked
Without any care in sight
There it was
The moment so darn colorful
When life was pure and simple
That was back in the day

Oh, oh, oh
You better say a prayer to stay
Oh, oh, oh
Oh baby, what do you say

Take my hand
Let’s take a short walk
And leave the door unlocked
Without any care in sight
There it was
The moment so darn colorful
When life was pure and simple
That was back in the day

Take my hand
Let’s take a short walk
And leave the door unlocked
Without any care in sight
There it was
The moment so darn colorful
When life was pure and simple
That was back in the day
Track Name: Someday
I’m takin’ long walks
Cuz I can’t stay here all the time, no way
It’s always raining here
You know it’s always been this way

Cuz someday to you
Means never to me

I’ve never seen you
Walkin’ in the light of day
You’re screamin’ at me
But you got nothing much to say

Cuz someday to you
Means never to me
I’m saying someday to you ahh you
Means never to me

Maybe you don’t know about the things you say
Maybe its better if I just go on my way
Cuz now I know about anger and I know about hate
So maybe it’s better if I just go on my way

Cuz someday to you
Means never to me

You’re burning pictures
And the smoke is fogging up your eyes, again
You say that I’ve changed but do you think that you’re the same

Cuz someday to you
Means never to me
I’m saying someday to ahh you
Means never to me

Maybe you don’t know about the things you say
Maybe its better if I just go on my way
Cuz now I know about anger and I know about hate
So maybe it’s better if I just go on my

Maybe you don’t know about the things you say
Maybe its better if I just go on my way
Cuz now I know about anger and I know about hate
So maybe it’s better if I just go on my way

Cuz someday to you
Means never to me
Track Name: Waiting On You
I am waitin’ for my time in life
I am waitin’ for love
I am waitin’ on the world to change
I am waitin’ on you
I’m waitin’

Every time I wake up I sit back and realize
What the worlds been missing if they just open their eyes
Fightin’ demons everywhere keepin’ my head on straight
The longest dream I’ve ever had praying it ‘s not too late

I am waitin’ for my time in life
I am waitin’ for love
I am waitin’ on the world to change
I am waitin’ on you
I’m waitin’

I’ve got so much love to share
But feels like no one cares
So I will write here to wipe away my tears
Call me crazy if you will for having a little hope
One can change the world if you will only let me show

CHORUS (repeat)

Please give me a chance
To say what I believe is real
I can only hope that
What you hear is what I mean

CHORUS (repeat)

I’m waitin’
I’m waiting on you
I’m waiting x2
I’m waiting for love from you
I’m waitin’
Track Name: In Love
He walked through the door
And told me he liked my curls
And I blew away all other girls
So on a rock in Central Park
He asked and I said yes

Cuz I know the feeling
When my breath is taken away
And my heart beats in circles

Cuz I am in love
Love x4

We walked hand in hand
He looked in my soul
And I leaned my life on him
On one knee and down the aisle
He asked and I said yes

BRIDGE (repeat)

CHORUS (repeat)

BRIDGE (repeat)

CHORUS (repeat)

Love x4
I’m in love, love x3
Track Name: Walk Away
One day your life
Will pause and rely
On finding the truth
That you never knew
When that day comes
Please don’t throw it away
Or pretend you don’t care
Like everything is okay

Say what you feel
And walk like you know because
This is your life
You can’t just walk away, walk away
Oh yea, you can’t just walk away, walk away

Sometimes life is so full
We’re stuck in a bubble
The air begins to lose
We can no longer choose
Right from wrong or
Up from down we go round
In circles far away
Like everything is okay

Chorus <repeat>

Oh, oh, oh, oh x3
Say what you feel
Walk like you know
This is your life
You can’t just walk away

Chorus <repeat>

Oh, oh, oh, oh x5
Walk away, walk away, don’t walk away x3
Track Name: Here At Home
When you’re outside in the world tonight
Trying not to lose your health
And if you see an opening
Try to introduce yourself
If someone gets ahead of you
Try to keep yourself composed

I think I have to let go
I’ll be waiting
Here at home

Pushed to be something more
Even when your day seems made
Strive for that feeling you’ve tried so hard
You couldn’t give another breath away
The worlds not sitting around for you
Feed yourself help us grow

I think I have to let go
I’ll be waiting
Here at home

From the little things about the day
To the drama that can throw you off
Whether the storm and go inside
Your head is strong your skin is tough
It has to be to live in this world
Try to keep yourself composed

I think I have to let go
I’ll be waiting
Here at home x2
