overdose
(verse 1)
I see a red door and I want it painted black

I see a wall
it's white
paint it black
I see a wall
it's white
paint it black
I see a wall
it's white
paint it black

all of these people
and not a single one to love
all of these mountain peaks
and I absolutely refuse to settle

but then you come along
oh, and then you come along
we had sex after our first coffee date
then you didn't leave because it was too late
our hormones ran high, so you asked me to wait
now they've run dry, did I take the bait?

I got too caught up in you
but I think you've broken me off

(chorus)
my throat feels tight
I pass out when I sleep at night
the walls feel like they're closing in
this addiction is a battle I cannot win
I'm crazy for you and I need a hit
keep going, don't stop, can't quit
you say goodbye
and everything comes crashing down
overdose, overdose
(end chorus)

(verse 2)
the moon shone through the curtains in our private space
I walk over to them passing my bra of lace
the floor is covered by clothes from you and I
I wrap myself in the curtain looking at you with the corner of my eye
I'm in too deep
I've got to cut you off
before it's too late
and I fall
fall in love

I've got to let you go
I've got to let you go go go

(chorus)
my throat feels tight
I pass out when I sleep at night
the walls feel like they're closing in
this addiction is a battle I cannot win
I'm crazy for you and I need a hit
keep going, don't stop, can't quit
you say goodbye
and everything comes crashing down
overdose, overdose
(end chorus)

(bridge)
I'm saving up
to buy some of your time
I'm drowning in
a desire to touch you once more
I saw the light
and it was you dressed in white
where do we go from here?
the high is wearing off

(chorus)
my throat feels tight
I pass out when I sleep at night
the walls feel like they're closing in
this addiction is a battle I cannot win
I'm crazy for you and I need a hit
keep going, don't stop, can't quit
you say goodbye
and everything comes crashing down
overdose, overdose
(end chorus)

(ending)
I see a wall
it's white
paint it black
I see a wall
it's white
paint it black
I see a wall
it's white
paint it black
I've got you in my sweet trap
paint it black




Anytime Smokin' Cigarette
(verse 1)
take a deep breath
inhale, exhale
wait a moment to release
this blue smoke is good for you
read a magazine and you'll see it's true
it's a healthy dose of reality
maybe it'll give you some energy
this day is shit
and you want to quit
but you need this job
because you're not ready to rob
someone of something that they truly earned
so if you have to take it out on something
take it out on your lungs
no one can see that you're dying inside
so when you kiss me it tastes of tobacco
but that's alright I'll go back and go
buy another pack
or maybe whole damn carton
so that you'll be cool with me
when your nerves are calm
is when you're at your best
I'm someone that always gets her way
but I really need you to stay
so I let go or the reigns ever so slightly
hoping that this taste of freedom
is just enough
to keep you by my side
and that you'll look over at least one of my faults

(chorus)
oh, damn it's been awhile
you smoke one pack a day
there's nothing the doctors can say
you know what's right for you
anytime smokin' cigarette
anytime that you can get
even if your shorten your life
oh oh oh oh oh boy
I don't know about that
I don't know soul
I don't know love without that smoke
that damn gray smoke
I don't know a miracle
I don't need anyone
I don't need to lose you or me or anybody
so I'll keep holding on
(end chorus)

(verse 2)
20 years I've smoked one a day
I can quit anytime I want to
I just don't want to stop
it's great for breakfast
it's great for a break
I light up after we make love
strike a match now it's my time
give me a light and the world will be bright

baby, baby
now is the time
I got you these patches
they do as they say
"get those damn things away from me
this time you won't get your way"
you say
so I guess I'll put them in the cabinet
next to the gum, next to the pills
to heal the day
you'll just keep hiding from life
taking two of these
and forgetting to call the doctor in the morning

(chorus)
I'm not stupid, you're a fool
thinking that you'll live forever
thinking that all you need is money
and that nothing will ever catch up with you
anytime that you smoke
anytime smokin' cigarette
you have to take what you can get
so let's just smoke
this cigarette
oh la la la la la la la la la la
I don't know about that
I don't know soul
I don't know love without that smoke
that damn gray smoke
I don't know a miracle
I don't need anyone
I don't need to lose you or me or anybody
so I'll keep holding on
(end chorus)

(verse 3)
trying to keep my problem from you
I can handle everything by myself
I told you I'd take care of you
so you could sit in our house that's blue
and do all those things you do
I'll tell you the truth someday

maybe I'm just looking for drama
and I'm not really worried about your trauma
we're supposed to be team
but you don't really seem
to think that

(chorus)
your issues are my issues
your missions, my missions
maybe we struggle day by day
but we still have time to smoke a cigarette
even if the monthly bills by up the door
oh la la la la la la la la la la
I don't know about that
I don't know soul
I don't know love without that smoke
that damn gray smoke
I don't know a miracle
I don't need anyone
I don't need to lose you or me or anybody
so I'll keep holding on
(end chorus)

(ending)
I told you who you told me
and now we're silent
just sitting at the kitchen table
staring into each other's eyes
I told you who you told me
and so we're sitting
wondering what's next to come
and I take a puff
really all that I was wanting
was to come home to you
take all the clothes off your body
and when we're done smoke a cigarette
that's all that a man could want

la la la la la la
la la la la la la
la la la la la la
whatever whatever whatever
whatever whatever whatever

 really all that I was wanting
was to come home to you
take all the clothes off your body
and when we're done smoke a cigarette
that's all that a man could want





Perfume Of Love
(chorus)
scent of understanding
scent of passion
perfume of love
citrus overtones, memory undertones
can go from day to night
scent of cuddling
scent of permission
this is our love
in our bed alone, in a crowded street
our eyes are locked on each other
fingers intertwined
forever
(end chorus)

(verse 1)
I'm attracted to your scent
not for sure what it is about it
when you leave of the morning I sit
on the bed and wrap myself in the sheets
your scent is intoxicating it makes me fall deeper in love
I can't wait until you come back home
so I can give you a back hug
you walk through the door and I give you a tug
I hope the night goes on forever and ever

our love is being side by side
my head in your chest
your hands wrapped around my waist
we sit in silence without the tv on
not worrying about anything that can go wrong
time is frozen
but the alarm still goes off

(chorus)
scent of understanding
scent of passion
perfume of love
citrus overtones, memory undertones
can go from day to night
scent of cuddling
scent of permission
this is our love
in our bed alone, in a crowded street
our eyes are locked on each other
fingers intertwined
forever

(end chorus)

(verse 2)
five more minutes, hit snooze or whatever
I just want to get lost in your smell
it's so warm, it's like a mountain top
damn you're just so strong
this is the place, you have a smile on your face
it's what makes me feel safe
oh, and so when I go to sleep
I'll still dream about you
and our bright future together
it won't be long
it will be soon
maybe there will be a wedding

(chorus)
scent of understanding
scent of passion
perfume of love
citrus overtones, memory undertones
can go from day to night
scent of cuddling
scent of permission
this is our love
in our bed alone, in a crowded street
our eyes are locked on each other
fingers intertwined
forever
(end chorus)



(verse 3)

when I'm around her I don't feel nervous

apprehension fades, she made me into a man

if you want to go somewhere, well baby we can
just quit your job, I'll quit mine
don't worry, baby, we will be fine
we'll live off our love
we'll go someplace nice
leave everything behind
and just start over right
my lady, my style, my life

you're the only person I want to be with
but I must admit I'm a little afraid
of leaving all of this behind
it's the only thing I know
won't our families be mad?


(chorus)
scent of understanding
scent of passion
perfume of love
citrus overtones, memory undertones
can go from day to night
scent of cuddling
scent of permission
this is our love
in our bed alone, in a crowded street
our eyes are locked on each other
fingers intertwined
forever
(end chorus)



(bridge)

I'm envisioning us
building sand castles
out front of our beach side home
we finally left the mountains
everything feels right
and finally I let go of spite
this is how I wanted to live
so I have nothing to be scared of
cuz I'm with you



(chorus)
scent of understanding
scent of passion
perfume of love
citrus overtones, memory undertones
can go from day to night
scent of cuddling
scent of permission
this is our love
in our bed alone, in a crowded street
our eyes are locked on each other
fingers intertwined
forever


scent of understanding
scent of passion
perfume of love
citrus overtones, memory undertones
can go from day to night
scent of cuddling
scent of permission
this is our love
in our bed alone, in a crowded street
our eyes are locked on each other
fingers intertwined
forever
(end chorus)





So far away from home (Beautiful Journey)
(Verse 1)
na na na na na na na
na na na na na na na na
na na na na na na na na

it was your first time leaving home, leaving home
you held mom tightly
you squeezed dad's hand
you didn't let them know
you didn't let them know
but when you got in the car
and drove down the road
tears streamed down your face
and you didn't wipe them away

yo
you convinced yourself
this was the start of something brand new
the beautiful journey hit a bump right at the start
sadness eventually faded away
but not too long into trip
homesickness set in again

you try to tell yourself
this is something you got to do
this is inevitable
but you want to hold on
you want to grip a little tighter
your friends try to convince you
that you're a little crazy
but they don't understand
everything you've ever had
every smile, every laugh, every tear drop
has fell in this place
on someone you love's shoulder
and nothing is ever going to take that away

(chorus)
growing up is so damn hard to do
when you're so far away from home
get stronger that's easier said than done
shut up, you don't know anything
oh yeah, I don't really know what's best either
I'm just trying to figure it all out
finding the answers with these hands
not letting anyone go
driving back home in the sunset
na na na na na na na na na na
na na na na na na na na na na
(end chorus)

(verse 2)
you make calls home religiously every night
but voices aren't enough
you want a hand to hold
a can of soda to share
making sure with your own eyes
that grandma and grandpa are alright

so you grab up your wallet
you pick up your keys from their new home on a strange counter
you hope in the car
knowing home is west
but you're forced to drive east

this season's vacation is coming up soon
you'll be able to go home
you're counting down the days
friends can only keep you happy so long
it's those that really care for you
is all that really matters

and then you try to call
and then you try to call
nobody picks up and you begin to worry
if only you were there
if only you were there
but then you get a call right back
saying everything, no, everyone is fine
and you don't need to return

(chorus)
growing up is so damn hard to do
when you're so far away from home
get stronger that's easier said than done
shut up, you don't know anything
oh yeah, I don't really know what's best either
I'm just trying to figure it all out
finding the answers with these hands
not letting anyone go
driving back home in the sunset
na na na na na na na na na na
na na na na na na na na na na
(end chorus)

(bridge)
this new house will never be home
these new people are only temporary
new friends are only background characters
you have things to do
but you don't really want to do them
this new house will never be home
these new people are only temporary
new friends are only background characters
you have things to do
but you don't really want to do them

(chorus)
growing up is so damn hard to do
when you're so far away from home
get stronger that's easier said than done
shut up, you don't know anything
oh yeah, I don't really know what's best either
I'm just trying to figure it all out
finding the answers with these hands
not letting anyone go
driving back home in the sunset
na na na na na na na na na na
na na na na na na na na na na
na na na na na na na na na na
na na na na na na na na na na
surely this beautiful journey will lead me back to home
(end chorus)





DEPARTURES
(Verse 1)
always and forever you say
don't forget to call when you get there
at this place, you throw down your bag
how long will this mundane last?

take a shower, get dressed
lay down in bed
turn off the lights in this unfamiliar place
thinking about everything you have back home
and now you're alone

yesterday you saw a special face
it reminded you of your favorite space
home seems a thousand miles away
even though it's just an hour drive
it never gets easier

(chorus)
departures always are something to go through
forced goodbyes are always rushed and unforgiving
these feelings you suppress inside
these new rules by which you abide
are you truly happy?
you come and go like a stranger in your own home
regularly on the roam
constantly on the clock
schedules never seem to fail
you hope that there will come a day
when you can sit down and stay
never having to uproot
and love this place called home, no goodbye
(end chorus)

(verse 2)
when a man and a woman
start to be torn
from what they know
again and again
living in dreams
they leave their love behind
until they can no longer
and they discover a new life

I love you more than yesterday
you are the place in which I belong
hold onto me tightly
and tell me I don't have to do a thing

your jokes always make me laugh
the time we spend together is my happiness
you've got to help me out of this mess
make me your new home

(chorus)
eternity is here to stay with me
this time it just ticks by slowly
never ever speeding up
I'm hoping that these few years will pass by quickly
and I can pick up the pieces of what once were
(end chorus)

(bridge)
trying to find what's the meaning of love
before it gets midnight
I just want to see you 
I just want to feel you
I just want to be there by your side
under the same stone
under the same moonlight

my name is written on the walls
that must mean that I belong here
just because my name is on some paper
doesn't mean they can't be moved
I want to go home so bad
this sickness has stricken me
only therapy will be able to ease the pain
a doctor can't prescribe me medicine
nothing will let this go

(chorus)
departures always are something to go through
forced goodbyes are always rushed and unforgiving
these feelings you suppress inside
these new rules by which you abide
are you truly happy?
you come and go like a stranger in your own home
regularly on the roam
constantly on the clock
schedules never seem to fail
you hope that there will come a day
when you can sit down and stay
never having to uproot
and love this place called home, no goodbye
(end chorus)




FACES PLACES
(verse 1)
one more time, I walk down these streets
hearts pass and conversations hit the air
but where do I belong in this crowd?
I'm the only one without a lover, parent, or baby
the best of my life
have I lived it yet?
the best of my life
it is soon yet to come
since I was 17, looking for the face
looking for the place
looking for the faces
looking for the places

one more song at this lonely karaoke
then I'll head out, then I'll head home
I've learned that it's hard to make a friend
how many will I have when I meet my end?
I want to believe that I will change
for the better and learn to be myself
since I'm not running anymore
looking for the face
looking for the place
looking for the faces
looking for the places

(Chorus)
the best of my life (will I find it in this place?)
the best of my life (the best of my life)
the best of my life
(end chorus)

(verse 2)
la la la la la
songs on the street
make my heart skip a beat
wondering if I will get lucky
to meet some people
for the best of my life
to find a location
to build myself up
to find happiness
I'm not going to give up
I'm going to keep looking

one more day living this dull life
waking up in the morning a cold bed
falling into the same routine in this too deep rut
looking to dig myself out and find a new pace

(chorus)
I love to find something new
something to shake up the spice of life
since I don't want to fall
looking for the face
looking for the place
looking for the faces
looking for the places
(end chorus)

(verse 3)
one more day in this dull life
saw someone I know on the street
with someone brand new
how lucky they must be finding each other's embrace
as for me I'm just looking for where I belong, my space

(chorus)
I love to find something new
something to shake up the spice of life
since I don't want to fall
looking for the face
looking for the place
looking for the faces
looking for the places
(end chorus)

(verse 3)
why? why? why? why? why?

the best of my life
the best of my life

the best of my life

look down that alley
check around that corner
I don't know why I worry
maybe it's because I'm afraid of borders
I'll pick up myself
and find the best of my life
sometimes you have to drink beer
before you can afford the wine
let me tell you if you're not wrong
you'll never find anything that's right

the best of my life
the best of my life

let me just say
I'm looking for the face
looking for the place
looking for the faces places

oh woah

looking for the face
looking for the place

even though I'm already this old
looking for the face
looking for the place

I'm still, I'm still
looking for the faces places
I'm still, I'm still

faces places

I'm still, I'm still

looking for the faces places





a temporary girl
(verse 1)
commitment, abandonment
abandonment, commitment
commitment, abandonment

abandonment, commitment

I'll do whatever you like
I'll do whatever will make you happy
I'll do whatever you like

I'll do whatever will make you happy
I'll do whatever you like

I'll do whatever will make you happy

I had a girl at home
but I laid her to the side
not because she was bad
but because I was bored
but I want to be a hole in the wall
our paths had met a fork
you go right and I'll go left left left

(chorus)
I'm tired of giving everyone my same
I want to make you happy
is love always this tragic?
is love always so hard to find
I'm okay with being an ordinary girl
but I don't want to be a temporary girl
even though I left, I love your body
even though I was bored, it's not your fault
what is life? what is love?
find comfort in the fact
that this current girl, won't be my last girl
(end chorus)

(verse 2)
what was that?
one day you rested your head on my lap on a park bench
then the next day
I found out a secret that you were seeing another girl
what to do
my whole world is shattered on the floor
and I'm stepping barefoot in the glass

so that's life
we move on from break ups in different ways
even if they were abrupt
but don't erupt
I want to be long gone before you find your tears

(chorus)
I'm tired of giving everyone my same
I want to make you happy
is love always this tragic?
is love always so hard to find
I'm okay with being an ordinary girl
but I don't want to be a temporary girl
even though I left, I love your body
even though I was bored, it's not your fault
what is life? what is love?
find comfort in the fact
that this current girl, won't be my last girl

(end chorus)

(chorus)
I'm tired of giving everyone my same
I want to make you happy

even though I was bored, it's not your fault
what is life? what is love?

(end chorus)

(ending)
I'll do whatever you like
I'll do whatever will make you happy
I'll do whatever you like

I'll do whatever will make you happy
I'll do whatever you like


I'll do whatever will make you happy

commitment, abandonment
abandonment, commitment
commitment, abandonment


abandonment, commitment




Because I LOVE the NIGHT
(chorus)
midnight, go out
it's time to party
grab the drinks
kick them back
because it's been one hell of a week
put me back together before I self destruct
I don't do this for you
because I love the night
(end chorus)

(verse 1)
those high heels I had in the back of the closet
I finally ripped their price tag off
it's too late now
I lost the receipt
but I need this, but I want this
it's been so long since I've gone out
I forgot what fun was like

listen
this will make me happy
even if just for a moment
if I can drop all of my problems
if I can just leave them behind
I'd buy those five minutes
at whatever price

(chorus)
midnight, go out
it's time to party
grab the drinks
kick them back
because it's been one hell of a week
put me back together before I self destruct
I don't do this for you
because I love the night

(end chorus)

(verse 2)
all these strong feelings
someone spilled their drink on me
but I don't even care
I was feeling hot anyways
I just want to go home for one night
with this man called Night
take my pain away from the day, Night

love it
get lost in this short time
all that stress that built up
take a deep breath
let it go
even if it's just here in this bar

(chorus)
midnight, go out
it's time to party
grab the drinks
kick them back
because it's been one hell of a week
put me back together before I self destruct
I don't do this for you
because I love the night

(end chorus)

(bridge)
long nights, impossible odds
keep my back to the wall
if it takes all that to be just what I am
well I'm gonna be a blue collar man
long nights, impossible odds
keep my back to the wall
if it takes all that to be just what I am
well I'm gonna be a blue collar man

(chorus)
midnight, go out
it's time to party
grab the drinks
kick them back
because it's been one hell of a week
put me back together before I self destruct
I don't do this for you
because I love the night

(end chorus)





Watch the movie?
(verse 1)
here all alone
no friends to phone
so let's watch a movie
maybe a comedy
maybe an action
combine them both together and what do you have?

even in a crowded room I feel lonely
I don't feel like life's my stage
but I'm just a face in the audience
main characters are ones that are loved
not just an average background character

(Chorus)
I wish my life was like a movie
I wish it was like a dream
where I'd be the starring actor
and everyone would want to be my friend
and everyone would want to talk to me
one scene I'd be on a boat out at sea
the next scene I'd be in a city with my love interest
looking at me
let's watch this movie
let's watch the movie
(end chorus)

(Verse 2)
this life is too dry
let's watch a drama
this life is too stale
let's watch a horrible thriller
I'd rather live to the maximum for 2 hours
than go on for 60 more years like this

in a melodrama
people who say they are your friends
but that are never there when you need them
you feel like you talk too much
because they ignore your messages
but then you count the words on your fingers
and realize there's only 10
so maybe you should leave
because this climax is something you will never win

(Chorus)
I wish my life was like a movie
I wish it was like a dream
where I'd be the starring actor
and everyone would want to be my friend
and everyone would want to talk to me
one scene I'd be on a boat out at sea
the next scene I'd be in a city with my love interest
looking at me
let's watch this movie
let's watch the movie
(end chorus)

(Chorus)
I wish my life was like a movie
I wish it was like a dream
where I'd be the starring actor
and everyone would want to be my friend
and everyone would want to talk to me
one scene I'd be on a boat out at sea
the next scene I'd be in a city with my love interest
looking at me
let's watch this movie
let's watch the movie
(end chorus)






Sa Yo Na Ra
(verse 1)
sa, you know we've reached the end
the beginning of something new
is coming back around
yo, it's not been long enough
I don't want to see your expressionless look

na, in this room there is Bacardi
ra, why are you here?
I didn't expect this
it's always at these times
that you don't look your best
because I want to make you jealous

(chorus)
sayonara, this was supposed to be the last word
we would ever share
I went a few years without a single care
but here you are in my life
shaking and tearing up my heart
this feeling now is so tart
see you never again is what I thought at that time
but maybe this is fate even if it is cruel
pinch me, I think I'm dreaming without drool
surely this isn't real
and you're going to leave
but now we have to talk
(end chorus)

(verse 2)
sa, so here we are again
I'm not going to laugh
not going to watch you cry
yo, I've been through two break ups since then
but you're the only one I can't be cordial with
could you put a bag over your face?
I don't even want to see it
but I guess I'm just being mean
but you can't ever seem
to understand that goodbye is goodbye
no lie

na, it's not like I
wanted to see you with your pretty boy hairstyle ever again
but here we are sitting
on opposite sides of the table
could you give me
a single break after all these months
ra, I'm not going to say that I'm sorry
because that will be like I'm waving the white flag

(chorus)
miracles, happen to everybody except for us
the irony I know
I'm fully aware of how bad this situation is
and now you won't even look me in the eye
are you really a man?
no wonder we broke up
you're a memory
maybe, the universe just wants to laugh at us
we're both really stupid
thinking we were hit by an arrow from cupid
this tension, babe
it's in the air and it can be cut by a knife
if only I had one right now
(end chorus)

(bridge)
I just wanted to forget that I even remembered you

make that two of us

live a peaceful life

live a peaceful life

she thinks she's the freakin' sun
coming around here like she has won
she's ignoring me
she's treating me like shit
I guess I've have to return it
I really really hate you now
and nothing will change that

I guess the final goodbye could never be possible
if both of us is alive
we try to outshine the other
telling our friends how we thrive
just forget it I'm going to leave
enjoy the rest of your night
I don't need this
and I don't need you
no, my feelings from long ago
have not returned
we need to figure out a way
to cut off all contact

(chorus)
sayonara, this was supposed to be the last word
we would ever share
I went a few years without a single care
but here you are in my life
shaking and tearing up my heart
this feeling now is so tart
see you never again is what I thought at that time
but maybe this is fate even if it is cruel
pinch me, I think I'm dreaming without drool
surely this isn't real
and you're going to leave
but now we have to talk

(end chorus)

(chorus)
miracles, happen to everybody except for us
the irony I know
I'm fully aware of how bad this situation is
and now you won't even look me in the eye
are you really a man?
no wonder we broke up

maybe, the universe just wants to laugh at us
we're both really stupid
thinking we were hit by an arrow from cupid

a picture on my mind
(verse 1)
I've come to the conclusion
that I'm going to be young forever
all my friends are moving on
while I'm here suffering on
this one got married
that one had a baby
it's madness
it's a mystery

but I'm not really jealous
I'm still hot and fiery
why would I want to slow down?
why would I want to be rushed?

(chorus)
love, if it comes it'll come
life, I've got it and I'll use it as I see fit
some are happy with families
and 9 to 5's all of these boring vibes
but me, I'm young
but me, I'm restless
my snapshot hasn't developed yet
while other's has turned into a full portrait
I'm figuring everything out on my own time
a picture on my mind
is not the picture you want it to be
(end chorus)

(verse 2)
I like sleeping as long as I want
and nobody can tell me what to do
my 20s may go by fast
but my 30s will go by slow
so I'm going to do my hair
going to paint my nails
all these life events people telling me I should be going through
before I'm too old
can all go to hell

(chorus)
love, if it comes it'll come
life, I've got it and I'll use it as I see fit
some are happy with families
and 9 to 5's all of these boring vibes
but me, I'm young
but me, I'm restless
my snapshot hasn't developed yet
while other's has turned into a full portrait
I'm figuring everything out on my own time
a picture on my mind
is not the picture you want it to be

(end chorus)

(bridge)
not ignoring life
just living it to the fullest
I want to stay up
I want to fuck up
I don't need a kid yet
I don't need a ring on my finger
if God planned these things to happen
then they'll happen
not ignoring life
just living it to the fullest
whatever

(chorus)
love, if it comes it'll come
life, I've got it and I'll use it as I see fit
some are happy with families
and 9 to 5's all of these boring vibes
but me, I'm young
but me, I'm restless
my snapshot hasn't developed yet
while other's has turned into a full portrait
I'm figuring everything out on my own time
a picture on my mind
is not the picture you want it to be
love, if it comes it'll come
life, I've got it and I'll use it as I see fit
some are happy with families
and 9 to 5's all of these boring vibes
but me, I'm young
but me, I'm restless
my snapshot hasn't developed yet
while other's has turned into a full portrait
I'm figuring everything out on my own time
a picture on my mind
is not the picture you want it to be
(end chorus)






can't stop

(chorus)
can't stop being your lover
don't want to be your friend
can't stop till it's over
I'll see this to the end
can't stop bringing you wonder
can't stop and let broken hearts mend
can't stop till it's over
I'll see this to the end
(end chorus)


(verse 1)

blind dates and meaningless conversations
I've finally found my baby
and I don't want to experience delusion anymore
when it gets awkward between us
I don't light up yet another cigarette
because we're already comfortable around each other


(chorus)

can't stop being your lover
don't want to be your friend
can't stop till it's over
I'll see this to the end
can't stop bringing you wonder
can't stop and let broken hearts mend
can't stop till it's over
I'll see this to the end
(end chorus)


(verse 2)

I don't want to give up on you
I'll never give up on you
let's keep on going
let's see this for all eternity
I'm tired of the restless dating scene
we'll always be able to make us work


(chorus)

can't stop being your lover
don't want to be your friend
can't stop till it's over
I'll see this to the end
can't stop bringing you wonder
can't stop and let broken hearts mend
can't stop till it's over
I'll see this to the end
(end chorus)







Whispers On The Street

(verse 1)
listen
to the voices
they fly away
like ghosts on the wind


so that's life

we fly away
some will stay
but we will cry


you know me I'm not the type to be in crowds

no matter how hard I try I can't blend in
even in the dark
I shine like sunlight on shiny chrome
I'm not the one to say that
something is beneath me


listen

to the voices
they fly away
like ghosts on the wind


so that's life

we fly away
some will stay
but we will cry


(chorus)

what is life?
what will make me happy?
what is love?
will it make me cry?
should I get shaken up by whispers on the street?
should I stand up for myself or take a seat?
can I not speak even if I have a voice?
can I be loud when I want to rejoice?
what is life?
what will make me happy?
what is love?

will it make me cry?
(end chorus)


(verse 2)

listen
to the voices
they fly away
like ghosts on the wind


so that's life

we fly away
some will stay
but we will cry


laying in bed with the lover I don't have

whispering sweet nothings in my ear
while people stop and stare
and start rumors in the alleys
laying beside the lover I'm not supposed to have
am I right or wrong


(chorus)

what is life?
what will make me happy?
what is love?
will it make me cry?
should I get shaken up by whispers on the street?
should I stand up for myself or take a seat?
can I not speak even if I have a voice?
can I be loud when I want to rejoice?
what is life?
what will make me happy?
what is love?

will it make me cry?

(end chorus)


(bridge)

listen
to the voices
they fly away
like ghosts on the wind


so that's life

we fly away
some will stay
but we will cry


(chorus)

what is life?
what will make me happy?
what is love?
will it make me cry?
should I get shaken up by whispers on the street?
should I stand up for myself or take a seat?
can I not speak even if I have a voice?
can I be loud when I want to rejoice?
what is life?
what will make me happy?
what is love?

will it make me cry?

Genesis Of Next

(verse 1)
hello, genesis
can you hear me?
yes, where are you?
hello, genesis
can you hear me?
yes, where are you?
hello, genesis
can you hear me?
yes, where are you?


yes, genesis of next

you're just getting to it
yes, genesis of next

you're just getting to it
this time it's over
10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1


shake your body now

turn that ass around
realize that you've found
genesis of next
we can find heaven
or we can hit the dance floor
all I know is that there is now
there is no answer
genesis of next
genesis of this and that
give me a taste of your lips
genesis of next
you're just getting to it
right before your eyes


(chorus)

I'm done with this
I'm tired of this
I'm moving onto something new
gotta stop dwelling on things that will never change
this is the beginning of something new
but I won't forget about the dark sides of my past
I'm not ashamed
I'll tell my story
and it'll be remembered for generations
(end chorus)


(verse 2)

can't get it out of my life
can't get it out of my mind
can't get it out of my life
can't get it out of my mind
can't get it out of my life

can't get it out of my mind

grab me by the hand
show this old dog what she's been missing
I can learn new tricks
I want to smile again
not be miserable and trapped at home
but out dancing at the club
or hanging out with friends
I don't want to stop myself anymore
no more lonely days
not hanging onto things that once were

(chorus)

I'm done with this
I'm tired of this
I'm moving onto something new
gotta stop dwelling on things that will never change
this is the beginning of something new
but I won't forget about the dark sides of my past
I'm not ashamed
I'll tell my story
and it'll be remembered for generations
(end chorus)


(bridge)

take a second to stop and appreciate what God has given you
sometimes I forget to do just that
but I'm learning to be ashamed and move on
I'm glad that I'm forgiven
I'm happy to not be hung up
looking for something new in my life
instead of the same old things


(chorus)

I'm done with this
I'm tired of this
I'm moving onto something new
gotta stop dwelling on things that will never change
this is the beginning of something new
but I won't forget about the dark sides of my past
I'm not ashamed
I'll tell my story
and it'll be remembered for generations

(end chorus)


(verse 3)

leave me alone let you go let you go let you go
leave me alone let you go let you go let you go
leave me alone let you go let you go let you go
leave me alone let you go let you go let you go
leave me alone let you go let you go let you go


the battle's not won

there's still work to do
trying to find the light in a dark place
but I won't give up
I just need some space
trying to regain my footing
so that I can continue the fight
so I can keep on being bright
like the shining moon
so come on with me
let's see where this leads

I'm not the kind or type

to just let things go
to just let mysteries
solve themselves
to not try to change something
about myself that I don't like
let's not say that's life
let's not get the blues
let's keep on going
even if our feet are bleeding
I've got some fight left in me
for this long journey


(chorus)

don't say it's senseless
to not raise your fists
when there's something you don't like
if you want to change
become a butterfly
do it and don't let anyone stop you
because it's not worth being blue be bold
you can do anything you say
(end chorus)


(bridge)

ooh ooh ooh
ooh ooh ooh ooh


(chorus)

don't say it's senseless
to not raise your fists
when there's something you don't like
if you want to change
become a butterfly
do it and don't let anyone stop you
because it's not worth being blue be bold
you can do anything you say
(end chorus)


(chorus)

don't say it's senseless
to not raise your fists
when there's something you don't like
if you want to change
become a butterfly
do it and don't let anyone stop you
because it's not worth being blue be bold
you can do anything you say

(end chorus)
