Untitled (Possible Title: Heart of Men)

Verse 1
Unscrambled thoughts
Consuming beliefs
Get down on your knees
Obey your master
Get your reward when you transition
Go forth and spread the message across the land
Advisement certainly comes at a cost
Funds collected will aid in your righteousness
Your body, a temple worthy of care
Your body, a vessel for truth or despair

Verse 2
Underestimation of intelligence
Wanting to learn new things
Analyzing traditional methods
Shaking foundations
They say that youth is wasted on the young
Intoxicated by rhetoric
Elevation of words
Robotic mindset, militant stance
Unwavering appeal
Why don't you see the world like we do?

Verse 3
In public spaces, people are afraid of originality
They criticize what they don't understand
Differences are rejected
Insanity is doing the same thing repeatedly
And expecting different results
Have your judgements
They are contingent on modern attitudes
Social movements gain popularity with the passage of time
Which side of history do you want to be on?

Chorus
Stories we've come to know
Since time began
So grand, so legendary
Many take a stand
Free-form thinking clashes with preservationism
Ongoing research and intense debate
Reveal the desires and drives of men

Untitled (Possible Title: Unbearable)

Verse 1
You don't know what I want
You don't know what I need
You think you do
You don't know how I feel
You don't know how I live
You think you do
You don't know what my goals are
You don't know what I aspire to be
You think you do
You don't know what I think
You don't know what's important to me
You think you do

Verse 2
Erasing you from my mind is what I'd like to do
Sometimes forgetfulness is good
The damage you have caused
Has affected me to the core
I'm not as whole as I'd like to be
Mental progression has slowed itself down
But I'm determined to have a new state of mind

Bridge
Confusion collides with hate
Psychological pain is all that remains
Efforts to correct the situation
Could take upwards of a lifetime
We all twist and turn
Many become unable to learn from their circumstances
They say "The past is the past"
Even though it molds our future

Chorus
It's unfortunate to be the object of your attention
There's a sickness in you
Even if you disagree with that
Bombs go off wherever you are
I don't want to be a casualty of your emotionalism
Life is difficult to navigate
With you in it, it's unbearable

Little Barrie

Verse 1
You're growing a bit bigger
But not big enough
To cause me to rush into your domain
I see where you're at
But I don't know for sure
If that's the place where I want to be
Soon enough I'll have to decide
On what I want my future to be
I can't let indecisiveness get the best of me
I know that there are no guarantees
And that's the way it's supposed to be
Leaps of faith can change one's life for the better
I shouldn't discount the power of timing

Verse 2
Sometimes I feel like I am drowning
And when I try to come up for air
I sink a little deeper into my mind
Where thoughts run rampant
And chaos is the norm
It's perpetually in a mental storm
But with your help, I may have a chance
To finally breakaway free
And become the person I've longed to be
For many years it was just a dream
Now it's a possibility

Bridge
Miles of land separate us
A common goal could unite us
If I were made of bricks
I'd stand firm on my own
But I'm just a man looking for a place to call home

Chorus 1
Little Barrie
With your minimal strength
And your small size
In the centre of confusion
What can you do for me
That I can't do on my own?
Where will you take me
That I haven't been before?
I've heard some things about you
That I'm not quite sure are true
You could be what I need
So I'll take a chance on you

Chorus 2
Little Barrie
With your minimal strength
And your small size
In the centre of confusion
I've heard some things about you
That I'm not quite sure are true
You could be what I need
So I'll take a chance on you
And if I become very attached
I could fall in love with you

This Is Love, This Is Murderous

Verse 1
This is love, this is murderous
The best thing that could ever happen
At the worst possible time
This is pure and genuine
Conquering anything, forsaking others
While regret begins to grow
Hearts and souls uniting
In a world divided by hate

Verse 2
This is love, this is murderous
Sweet sensations colliding with the bitter aftermath
All involved will sustain injuries
This is a blessing from on high
This is a curse from way down below
Good versus evil takes centre stage
Minds and spirits uniting
In a world divided by fear

Bridge
Trading in every possession
For a lifetime filled with happiness
Is worth far more than silver and gold
This is whole and never-ending
Patching up all the broken pieces
Only to have them scattered around

Chorus 1
This is love, this is murderous
Unpredictability
Sunshine and blue skies
On a perfect summer day
This is love, this is murderous
Volatility
Riding on highs and sinking on lows
On a horrible winter day
Reality overpowers fantasy
This is love, this is murderous

Chorus 2
This is love, this is murderous
Unpredictability
This is love, this murderous
Volatility
This is love, this is murderous
Set me free, lock me up
This is love, this is murderous

I Will Bear Witness

Verse 1
If I'm despondent
Then I will know
That I should become involved in my life
Staring blankly into space
Will not get me to a better place
Action is stronger than will
When I'm indifferent to my well-being
Self-love will be my number one priority
Not wanting to wake up
Each time I go to sleep
Will only make me become moodier
Negativity is destructive

Verse 2
If anger is building up inside of me
I will let it out creatively
Rage is a counter-productive force
Eventually it leads to remorse

Bridge
Affirmation is part of honesty
Bravery is confronting scarcity
Detachment yearns for a bond
Understanding eliminates confusion
Revelation seizes attention
Maturity equates to growth

Chorus 1
I was born with sight
But was blind to the essence of me
I will bear witness
To all things which form my identity

Chorus 2
I was born with sight
But was blind to reality around me
I will bear witness
To all things which form my identity

Chorus 3
Born with sight is being fortunate
A lack of vision leads to blindness
I will bear witness
To all things which form my identity

A Thousand Benjamins

Verse 1
For the first time, I love someone
I never thought it was possible
That person does not love me back
But I'm just fine with that
The only thing that bothers me
Is that he's with somebody else
I'm no longer the centre of his attention
I have become his former lover
I desperately want to be with him
Be close to him in every sense of the word

Verse 2
I deeply care about the man
Whom I fell for
I love him more than I love myself
He became my world, my home
The only part of him which I have are memories
Every little detail embedded within my heart, my mind

Bridge
Mmmmm, ooohhh, mmmmmm
Shy bordering on anti-social
Longing for conversation
Independent bordering on selfishness
Wanting a friend or two
Unrealistic views bordering on insanity
Needing to change my luck
Inaction bordering on indifference
Refusing to harm myself
Mmmmm, mmmmm

Chorus 1
Ecstatically happy, then depressingly sad
Joyful and disappointed
Delightfully surprised, then stunningly upset
Amazed and angry

Chorus 2
Genuinely optimistic, then distressingly apprehensive
Proud and confused
Wonderfully interested, then violently annoyed
Caring and insensitive
Optimistic, apprehensive - a thousand Benjamins, a thousand Benjamins
Interested, annoyed - a thousand Benjamins, a thousand Benjamins
Happy, sad - a thousand Benjamins, a thousand Benjamins
Amazed, angry - a thousand Benjamins, a thousand Benjamins

Brown

Verse 1
Brown is the colour of my skin
Soft and smooth from head to toe
Brown is rich and creamy
Full of life in its essence
It comes in a multitude of shades
Ranging from light to dark
No other colour comes close
To eclipsing its power
There's a hidden curiosity
It's frequently unspoken
But when discussion begins
Raised eyebrows and open mouths soon follow
Brown's lure is insatiable
It'll bring you to the point of no return

Verse 2
Brown are the colour of my eyes
Deep and mysterious
Brown is rich and golden
At the centre of attention
There's an ancient affirmation
It's appearance is youthful looking
Brown's lure is insatiable
You'll want to have every part of it
Once you gain experience
Things will never be the same

Chorus 1
Brown's capabilities are far-reaching and long lasting
Its richness is undeniable
Complex to the core
Brown's vibrancy shines right through
Its richness is captivating
Sensual to the core
Brown's vibrancy shines right through
I love brown, I love myself

Chorus 2
Brown's capabilities are far-reaching and long lasting
Its richness is undeniable
Complex to the core
Brown's vibrancy shines right through
Its richness is captivating
Sensual to the core
Brown's vibrancy shines right through
I love brown, I love myself
It encompasses pure beauty
I love brown more than anything else
Oh what a feeling

Many Thousands Gone

Verse 1
Her bluest eye is darker than tar
Once captivating, now sullen and cold
Long, golden hair is frizzled and burnt
Lips are cracked, body is dry and rough
She is dangerously shy
Coming back to herself will be no small feat
Lost doesn't even begin to describe her state of mind
Fixing what's broken seems to be impossible

Verse 2
His heart is colder than ice
Once full of warmth, now weak and shallow
Confidence morphed into arrogance
Disdain for others grows with each passing day
Their sentience no longer remains
It's the difference between living and being alive
These new times are nothing more than a shill for death
Years will seem to pass within seconds

Chorus 1
Identities are like hurricanes
When emotional roller coasters hit shore
They can be swept away
Truth is like a tornado
Sometimes unexpected but powerful
Many survive
Unfortunately, many thousands gone

Chorus 2
Life is like a glass of water
With complexities ranging from being half full
To being half empty
Truth is like a tornado
Sometimes unexpected but powerful
Many survive
Unfortunately, many thousands gone

Drowning Cupid

Verse 1
I don't need love
No no no no no
I do not need love
What it gave to me was deep sadness
I don't want kisses
No no no no no
I do not want kisses
It will lead to falling for someone
Just leave me to myself
Yes yes yes yes yes
Being alone is nothing new to me
They'll be no confessions of hearts skipping beats
And no places for lovers to meet
What I do won't be found out by anyone

Verse 2
I don't need love
No no no no no
I do not want to experience emotional turmoil again
I don't want sweet nothings
No no no no no
I do not want sweet nothings to be whispered into my ears
To each his own
Yes yes yes yes yes
That is what I believe
I refuse to live by any other standard
Souls uniting are just fantasies
Hoping that it'll happen makes you naive
I made a promise not to let myself down

Verse 3
My sense of self was manipulated
Who I tried to be
Was weaker than who I was
My self-respect shrivelled up like burning paper
Slowly I regained strength
I knew that battling forces beyond my control
Would be arduous and time consuming
Reclaiming what's left of me begins with drowning cupid
This will be my sweet victory

Chorus
I'm drowning cupid
He won't fly
He will no longer shout his harts at me
I'm drowning cupid
He'll be gone
Then I will have peace of mind
Drowning cupid is the only way for me to live

I Like Me!

Verse 1
I may not be perfect
I've made a few mistakes
I do have some regrets
But my life hasn't been a waste
Being as inquisitive as I am
Has been a good thing
Other times it's been bad
I'm a picky person
when it's time to make my mind up
I become indecisive

Verse 2
I'm not always nice
Not always honest
I don't have any friends
But I do have acquaintances
I'm a stutterer, a former nail-bitter
I'm a sinner, a former church attendant
I have aspirations but I procrastinate
Even though I've had crushes
Never been on a date

Verse 3
Sometimes I'm ungrateful
Other times I'm selfish
I focus more on what I want
Instead of appreciating what I have
When I'm angry, I can resort to revenge
I've thought of killing myself
But I chose to live my life

Chorus 1
With all my faults - I like me!
I'm the only person I want to be
With all my good qualities - I like me!
I won't change for anyone
Because I like me! I like me!

Chorus 2
With all my faults - I like me!
I'm the only person I want to be
With all my good qualities - I like me!
I won't change for anyone
Who I am is who I'll be
Because I like me! I like me!

No Retreat, No Surrender

Verse 1
Stand in the place where you live
Stand in the place where you work
Stand in the place where you go to play
Beat down intimidation
Shun ignorance, dispel lies
Deception rises and falls throughout time

Verse 2
Southerners try scare tactics
While northerners try manipulation
Westerners play dumb from the start
Easterners are welcoming
Because they have ulterior motives
It's best to be stuck in the middle

Verse 3
Days are passing quicker than ever
Making time even more precious
Losing a little means losing a lot
Hope for the best, prepare for the worst
Situations are increasingly complex

Chorus 1
No retreat, no surrender
Choose to stay and fight

Chorus 2
No hiding, no giving up
Reclaim yourself and what you own

The Suicidal Mind

Verse 1
I don't care about anyone
Don't even care about myself
Spent a lot of time on my own
Thought about the hardships and pain I've endured
Many of the wounds still hurt till this day
I'd do anything to make them go away
My life is a nightmare that frightens me
And I feel like I'm trapped in it

Verse 2
Lecturing and finger pointing will not change how I feel
Don't want advice, don't want a friend
Got more than I can take going on in my end
By the second I lose energy
I have no strength to fight all that I'm feeling
I've always been my own worst enemy
I'm going to lose the war against myself

Bridge
I'm not being impulsive
Thought about it endlessly
This is the way it has to be
And it will be done by me

Chorus 1
Bad memories resurface
Then I completely shut down
Killing myself is natural, so I'll do it

Chorus 2
Bad memories resurface
Then I completely shut down
Killing myself is rational, so I'll do it
Bad memories resurface
The voice within me speaks louder
Killing myself is rational, so I'll do it

Verse 1
Meet the new boss, same as the old boss
The more things change
The more confused we become
We settled for inferiority
Knowing that was the worst choice we could make
The medicine man prescribes poison to us
Yet we fail to understand why we always get sick
Popping pills like candy is today's cure
But is your choice of flavour really your prerogative?

Verse 2
The ship which we are on is slowly sinking
And the precarious situation we have places ourselves in
Has more holes than a golf course
What we all need to do
Is get down on our knees and pray
Our safe houses and panic rooms
Will crumble to the ground
If we don't open our eyes soon
Will choosing to be blind save us from witnessing catastrophe?

Bridge
What currency will you invest in?
What method of diversification will you employ?
Is your portfolio a strong one?
Are your assets your liabilities?
Which bank will maintain all your holdings?
Will my funds ever be depleted?
Insider trading is to be welcomed

Chorus
You don't know, you don't know what you're talking about
Don't tell me what to do
You're no bigger than me
You don't know, you don't know what you're talking about
You are not my saviour
I'll never believe in you

Midnight Magic

Verse 1
When you need to relax
We'll put you on track
It's Friday night
The weekend is in sight
People are getting ready
Everything is steady
They're joining us to have a good time
So come on down to the party

Verse 2
The beats are really neat
The vibes go up and down
The atmosphere is great
It's a place to escape
It will entice you
And it will surprise you
Feel the vibration
What a sensation

Verse 3
Once you step inside
You'll have no place to hide
Show us what you've got
We are the hot spot
You'll fell the passion
We've got real action
Happiness is just one step away
Come on, join us today

Bridge
Let it rip, let it fly
People watch in awe
People say "My oh my!"
Some remain speechless
Others are excited
They've got inspiration to dance the night away

Chorus
You'll do the salsa
And the tango
Let's flamenco
Experience midnight magic
You'll do the disco
And the lambada
Come on, let's rumba
Experience midnight magic

Murder of Angels

Verse 1
Little ones, do not fear
For I am here to comfort you
I bring no harm or sorrow
Let me lead you to your falls
Young boy, listen to me
I'll play with you if you promise to share
Maybe we can become friends
Then I'll take your toys away from you

Verse 2
Young lady, don't you hurt yourself
For you are filled with so much worth
Boys will come and boys will go
And when they do, you will be used up
Do whatever you want
Or whomever for that matter
Future generations will look up to you as a role model

Verse 3
This is such a heinous crime
The murder of angels
Don't call the cop; ignore the press
Let us do what we do best
Innocence will turn to guilt
Trust into deception
Your souls will rot to the core
We'll never stop because we want more

Chorus 1
Children close your eyes now
You have witnessed the murder of angels
Fathers you must disappear
You are partly to blame for our transgressions
Daughters cry your hearts out
for you have been violated
Mothers were oblivious
To what occurred inside their homes
Sons let your rage run wild
It's the emotion you were taught to express

Chorus 2
All my children run away
You have witnessed the murder of angels
Old men, you should die
You are to blame for our transgressions
Ladies, beg, borrow and steal
For you have been violated
Teachers were despondent
To what occurred inside of their classrooms
Lovers let your passion run wild
We're no different than our fellow mammals
There's nothing to be ashamed of
Just do whatever comes naturally

Chorus 3
Children close your eyes now (murder of angels)
Fathers you must disappear (murder of angels)
Daughters cry your hearts out (murder of angels)
Mothers were oblivious (murder of angels)
Sons let your rage run wild

Hurt

Verse 1
I'm being honest when I say that I don't like people
Telling you that I hate them is not being dramatic
I even go out of my way to avoid human beings
Never been close to anyone and never want to
Friends would be a burden
Acquaintances would be time-consuming
Keeping to myself allows me to avoid their drama

Verse 2
Their general attitude just pisses me off
Their simple mindedness has always been alarming
They are easily manipulated, easily controlled
If I ruled the world
I'd be the only one living in it
Just take a look around
And you will find nothing but madness
This non-existence of ours is truly pathetic

Bridge
I'm not exaggerating, I'm not telling any lies
This is how people are
They have always been this way
This frustration of mine is slowly taking my life away
The human race is to blame
What a darn shame

Chorus
Bash their heads in
Spit inside their mouths
Kick em in the balls
Hurt them any way you can
Cut their breasts out
Poke them in the eye
Punch em in the gut
Hurt them any way you can

Eyes

Verse 1
I saw you but you looked away from me
I am not blind and neither are you
Then why do I feel like I have poor vision?
Maybe it's because I was blind-sided by reality
You let me into your home
Eventually into your bed
I foolishly believed that I was a part of your life

Verse 2
Some say that eyes are windows to one's soul
If that is true, then yours are dark and cold
They appeared to be warm and inviting
Now I see them as your tools of deception
I was starting to give you all of me
Instead, you took away what we could have been

Verse 3
Oh, poor pitiful me
I was taken for a ride, then cast out to sea
You appointed yourself as my master and commander
Directing me through some of my highs and lows
When the waters were still
Moments with you were refreshingly enjoyable
But when the waters rose
Our eyes were at different levels

Chorus
My eyes saw you as a decent person
As a thoughtful and caring man
I assumed your eyes saw me as an attractive person
As an inquisitive and open minded dude
Now my eyes see you as a shallow person
As a disrespectful and insensitive jerk

May I Feel

Verse 1
May I feel your two week old beard with my soft fingers
I remember the sensation that I got from it
May I feel your thin eyebrows which blend into your facial tone
I remember the enjoyment that I got from it
May I feel your semi-bald head
And the hairs that you have left
I remember the thrill that I got from it

Verse 2
May I feel your well-shaped nose
The top, the point and the sides
I remember the peacefulness that I got from it
May I feel your big ears - the front and the back
I remember the pleasure that I got from it
May I feel my thick lips kissing you passionately
I remember the excitement that I got from it

Verse 3
May I feel your smooth elbows
Bot at the same time
I remember the happiness that I got from it
May I feel your strong thighs and your meaty legs
I remember the warmth that I got from it
May I feel my body being cuddled by yours
I remember the satisfaction that I got from it

Chorus
Oh, how beautiful you are
It is a shame that you do not realize it
I yearn to be a part of you again
So I hate the fact that I have to ask
"Is it okay for me to touch you?"

Immortal Memory

Verse 1
He's the only person that I've ever loved
Only person that I've confessed it to
I revealed the many anguishes in my life
He now knows how I truly feel about him
I've never been so honest to myself until now
I'm more at ease by confronting some of the pain
That resulted in him and I parting ways
Still, I know things won't be the same again
My world without him has changed in many ways

Verse 2
We were on a seeing each other basis
Now I desperately want to be your boyfriend
I take a blue-inked pen and write your name
On my chest, I write it on my right thigh
Who and what you are is the type of person
That I truly want to be with every day
The fact is: I have to make plans to see you
Plans which only involve you and I
Still, I know things won't be the same again
My identity without you has changed in many ways

Bridge 1
To forget everything is to deny
The deep love that I have for him
After all that has been said and done
The connection between us will remain
To ignore anything is tantamount to being insane

Bridge 2
Sleeping alone; not feeling alright
Stumbling in this dark light
That has stolen the sunshine from my life

Chorus
My first love and I grew closer every day
Because of him, I feel more comfortable in being gay
I was willing to move in with him
To hold his hand in public
My immortal memory has got my first love as its captive

Same Time, Next Year

Verse 1
Couldn't believe the news
When I heard it at first
You left me, you're dating a new friend of mine
What's worst?
I tried to convince myself that it wasn't true
You and I were in the early stages of something new
Hanging out, eating and sleeping at your place
Loved it when I would just stare at your face
Your arms around me at different times of the day
How I miss that, you'll never know
Because I won't say

Verse 2
More soft spoken is what I am
Holding my head lower is what I do
Signs which indicate your love for me
Are what I search for, are what I think of
More cautious of who I speak to
Acting mute when it's necessary
Solutions that solve some of my dilemmas
Are what I search for, are what I think of
I feel insecure and inadequate in many ways

Verse 3
The downtown core of the city
Reminds me so much of you
Shorts, bicycles, cell phones and Cadillacs
Now and again, I walk by your apartment building
I look at floor six, wondering what you're up to
How I miss the moments which quickly passed us by
Reminiscing about them will lead me to cry

Chorus 1
By this time next year
I will be alone
Whenever I was with you
I felt at home
Now I'm riding high on a tidal wave of emotions
Same time, next year
I'll be drowning in the memory of us

Chorus 2
By this time next year
I will be alone
Whenever I was with you
I felt at home
Now I'm riding high on a tidal wave of emotions
Same time, next year
I'll be drowning in the memory of us
Desperately wanting a sense of clarity
Is what I'll be doing same time, next year

Verse 1
I though you were interested in me
Now I know it was all in my head
How could I be such a fool?
You were always on my mind
Every though was about you
I was completely wrapped up
My attention for you was more than physical

Bridge 1
I am still healing
And I know it will take time to get over you
It was my heart that got me into this mess
And it'll be my brain that will get me out
I need to let go of off starting today

Verse 2
For some time I've been blaming you
Even though it wan't your fault
I was angry with you
Now I need to forgive myself
I know I placed you on the spot
Releasing you from me is not going to be that simple

Bridge 2
I am still healing
And I know that I will have to be more patient
My foolish heart got me into this mess
Now I'm counting on my brain to help me out
I need to let go of you before it's too late

Bridge 3
I've got to let you go
I really cannot live like this anymore
I'll focus my attention elsewhere
To me, you are invisible
And when everything's said and done
I know I'll be better off

Chorus
Thoughts of you, I have to let them go
Feelings for you, I should let them go
I just want to be free
Reminders of you, I want to let them go
It's time for me to carry on with my life
Letting go of everything just might make me happier

Let's Make Sure We Kiss Goodbye

Verse 1
You and I have been constantly fighting
And I know that it's hurting both of us
There are thoughts inside of us that escape through our lips
And when they are released, voices rise and tears fill our eyes

Verse 2
We both can no longer stay together
Because there will be serious consequences
We cannot put ourselves through more and more heartache
We need to be further apart to make things better again

Bridge
I don't want to fight anymore
I don't want to cause more pain
That's the absolute truth
I need to carry on with my life
I can't afford to be held back
My heart never belonged to you
Then why does it feel like I gave it away?
It's time to journey out on my own
It'll be better than being unhappy
Let us both make a wish
That we will recover from all of this
All the secrets and lies will be a thing of yesterday
Scattered pieces will begin to mend
And we can finally move away from each other
We must start to heal
And let the past fade away
Let's bury it into the ground

Chorus
Let's make sure we kiss goodbye
Before you and I go our separate ways
I know that breaking up can be difficult
We've got to do this now instead of later
Let's make sure we kiss goodbye
Before you and I go our separate ways
This is the best thing for both of us
There is no point in continuing our relationship

You Can Count On Me

Verse 1
I will never leave your side
Until I know that you're safe and secure
I will do my best to ensure
That happiness will be in your heart
Whenever you're scared and all alone
Just think of me
I will give you courage that will help you shine
Throughout your life
Love will connect you and I

Verse 2
I really do not know what the future has in store for us
But whatever the outcome may be
Just know that I will be holding your hand
I will pass everything that I have learned onto you
All of the love that I have for you is completely true
Hope will connect you and I

Bridge
There is no reason for you to run and hide
Because you have absolutely nothing to be afraid of
I am more than willing to share my life with you
Just open your entire mind, body, and soul to me

Chorus
You can count on me
To be with you when you're in pain
I promise you that I will be the true friend you've been wishing for
And all the memories we share
Will be locked within our bond
Entrust me with your hopes and fears
Because I'll always be there for you

Dream A Dream

Verse 1
You can dream a dream
In the morning, day or night
You can dream a dream
Even if you're not sleeping
You can dream a dream
Without being aware of it
You can dream a dream
Just to let the time pass by
Or to think about yesterday

Verse 2
You can dream a dream
It is very simple
You can dream a dream
About anything special to you
You can dream a dream
It's a chance for you to relax
You can dream a dream
Just to sort all your thoughts out
And maybe you can start something new

Bridge
Let the visions appear
Don't block them out of your mind
Embrace every one of them
They can help you along the way
Dream a dream to make life beautiful

Chorus 1
Dream a dream any time of the day
Dream a dream whenever you are
Dream a dream out of curiosity
Dream a dream out of pleasure

Chorus 2
Dream a dream any time of the day
Dream a dream to make a difference
Dream a dream to challenge yourself
Dream a dream in complete silence

These Days

Verse 1
These days I feel dazed and a little bit confused
It seems like I've been walking blindly
These days I feel lonelier than ever
It seems like I'm the only person in the world

Verse 2
These days I feel like I'm sitting in the front row
And the scenes in my view play like a scary film
I don't know why I'm constantly out of breath
Day after day I am gasping for air

Verse 3
These days my mind is spinning from left to right
I do not know when it will finally stop
These days my feelings are acting like chameleons
Trying to keep things stable is not easy

Bridge
A trip away from this world
Might be beneficial to my well-being
A moment when everything's perfect
Could be the ultimate dream

Chorus 1
These days I am lost
There's bitterness in me
These days I feel like I'm trapped
Time isn't on my side
Changes worry me
These days I need luck in my life

Chorus 2
These days I am sad
These days I'm tired
These days I feel worthless
These days I am bored
These days I'm angry
These days I'm afraid of tomorrow

If I Could Be With You

Verse 1
If I could be with you for the rest of my life
I'd take the time to do things right
Whenever you are talking to me
I will always listen
You will never be ignored by me

Verse 2
If I could be with you for the rest of my life
I'd cherish every moment that we would share
You will always feel safe and secure
Whenever I am with you
Just give me time and you will see

Verse 3
If I could be with you for the rest of my life
I'd take the chance to surprise you once in awhile
It could be with a kiss on the cheek
Or a thank you card
You'll always be loved by me

Verse 4
If I could be with you for the rest of my life
I would be your light in the darkness
I'd take the time to laugh and cry with you
I will be a true friend
Entrust me with your hopes and dreams

Bridge
If I could be with you for the rest of my life
You will never be alone anymore
Just give me some time to show you that I'm serious
You'll always be cared for by me
I want to be with you until the end

Chorus
If I could be with you
I'd hold your hand and take you around the world
Show you all the things you've dreamed of
Nothing would make me happier than to see you smile

Why Can't We Talk?

Verse 1
When I called your house, you hung up the phone
At the sound of my voice
The way you are acting towards me causes me to wonder
Did I do something wrong?
Did I say anything incorrect?
Just tell me what is really going on
I need to know

Verse 2
We spent countless moments together
Those were the joyful days
I never expected a sad outcome
Not even a bizarre one like this
I think I better call two professionals for help
It seems like Mulder and Scully are good FBI agents
They can solve this case

Verse 3
The least you could do is come up to me
And give me an honest answer
Tell me why you choose not to speak to me
Do you feel that I am a threat to you
Or are you acting out of jealousy?
I guess I will never know the real reason
Unless you tell me

Chorus
Why can't we talk anymore?
We were the best of friends
I wonder what has caused you to keep your distance from me
Tell me why can't we talk anymore?
We never were enemies
Suddenly you turned your back away from me

Listen To Me

Verse 1
There's no need for you to worry
I'm not getting myself into trouble
It's just that I don't want any contact from other people
I have this need to be all by myself
Why won't you listen to me?
I'm pleading to you
I will be careful

Verse 2
You're asking too many questions
And that's why you're starting to get on my nerves
Why do you always bother me?
You know I need a lot of privacy
I'm trying to find who I really am on the inside
I can't go about with my business
You're constantly getting in my way

Verse 3
I know what I am doing
And I won't have any future regrets
Being along doesn't scare me
Because I have the strength to live through it
You have to leave
So I can be on my own
If you're still trying to pull me backyards
Just know you are no longer my friend

Bridge
This is my final choice
I'm not going back on my word
If you'll only listen
Maybe you will see why this is so important to me

Chorus
Please go away
Leave me in solitude
Why won't you respect my decision I have made?
I don't want you around me
I've never forced anything upon you in my life
So why can't you do the same for me?
Just leave me alone
I need space

One Long Year

Verse 1
There's no answers to any of my questions
But I keep asking the same ones
Time's moving slow
Everything is the same
Nothing has changed
I'm still locked inside

Verse 2
What's the point of wishing?
If none of your dreams come true
It's just a waste of time
I'll try doing something else
It's the first of June
But January seems far away
I'm very anxious
I'm looking for a way out

Chorus 1
Why has this been a very long year?
I've been struggling to get myself on the right track
I'm hoping it'll come to an end
I want to venture out into the world

Chorus 2
Why has this been a very long year?
I've been struggling to become a stronger person
All the memories are tearing me apart
I have to leave the past behind

Chorus 3
Why has this been a very long year?
I've been trying to hide myself from all the pain
There are many words that are left unspoken
I don't have an ounce of courage in me

Chorus 4
Why has this been a very long year?
I have done nothing to deserve this
I tried to change who I really was
But now there's smoke surrounding me

Ever Since

Verse 1
The memory of that cold December morning is fresh in my mind
It's as though it only happened yesterday
A voice inside my head said "You're going too far"
But I did not pay attention
Sometimes when I look back I wish I hadn't given you the letter

Verse 2
I must admit that I ignored all the hints that were dropped
They all suggested that I could never be with you
Maybe I was afraid of reality
Because you would be out of my grasp
A slap across my face brought my senses back
And I felt misled

Bridge 1
I wanted to be the only person you thought of
I though that we could start a relationship
I was trying real hard to impress you
The need to be close to you kept increasing

Bridge 2
I was attracted to everything about you
Why did you have to say all those things you said?
They should have been words left unspoken

Chorus
Ever since you told me that you and I were both different
I've been trying to get you out of my mind
But it's not as easy as I thought
Ever since you told me there are boundaries that I cannot cross
I've been wishing to change the way you are
Only because I want you to be more like me

I Quit

Verse 1
I'll take time off from writing
And I won't read as much
I won't have to think as hard
Because things will be simpler
I'm not looking for an easy way out
I'm just expanding my horizons
I know that I can do better than this
All I have to do is try

Verse 2
This is a decision that I'm comfortable with
I have thought it through
I didn't go rushing into it
Its time for me to relax
I haven't sat down in such a long time
I'm running out of breath everyday
Because I'm never standing still

Verse 3
I'm entering a new phase in my life today
I must admit that I'm scared
But that's the price you pay
Nothing or no one is going to hold me back
I know there's opportunities out there
I really owe this to myself

Bridge 1
So I quit!
Tell the boss I won't be coming back
I gave my two weeks notice
I'm leaving everything behind
I've gained experience
I've worked from nine to nine
I'm out of energy
My health is decreasing
I've done what I came to do
And I gave it my all
If the telephone rings I won't be answering the call

Bridge 2
Because I quit
Tell the boss I won't be coming back

So I quit!

The Closer You Get

Verse 1
I am beginning to realize that you have cast some kind of spell over me
Every single time you approach me I don't know what to do
I'm scared that I'll do something foolish

Bridge 1
It seems to me that you've been dropping hints
Only for me to stumble upon
At first I thought it was all in my head
And just your way of being friendly

Verse 2
I just don't know what to expect
You could be doing something without me knowing about it
You could really help me out by giving signals to me
Letting me know that you are about to come my way

Bridge 2
I know that I'm not overreacting
Your presence is becoming more and more stressful
I need to take a couple of steps back
If not, I will surely lose my cool

Verse 3
Is this an infatuation that you have for me
Or is this the real deal?
From now on I will keep my guard up
So I can remain focused on all my surroundings

Bridge 3
I always feel the need to pull away
Whenever you give your hand for me to shake
I sense that you know something is wrong
I just can't handle the fact that you've interested in me

Chorus
The closer you get, my heart beats faster
And my palms begin to sweat
The closer you get, my mind starts to spin
And when we speak, my words are slurred

With Secrets To Keep

Verse 1
I cannot stay here
Because there's no space to breathe
You keep asking questions I won't answer
Why won't you give it a rest?
You never respect my wishes
My personal life is none of your business

Verse 2
I feel much safer
And for that I have less worries
I have protection that gets me through each day
I try to stay focused
I don't want anything to erupt
But sometimes I'm afraid I draw too much attention

Bridge
I'm taking a risk
There's a chance that I'll get trapped
I'm just living the way that I feel is best
I'll stay a step ahead
That's the choice I've made
I'm more confident than before

Chorus
I will do what I have to do
I will say what I need to say
There's no way for me to be real
With secrets to keep
But I'm still alive
I use them because they shield me
Without them I know that I would be exposed
To prevent myself from being knocked down
I'll be more stable with secrets to keep

To Get To You

Verse 1
Sometimes I feel that I will be lost without you
That's why I always dread the thought of you leaving me
Is this a game that you and I have been unconsciously playing?
Being inconsiderate of the others' feelings
While we score points based on the impact it creates

Verse 2
Do you ever feel that you will be lost without me?
Do you think that you will be trapped
And not know when to ask for help?
I know that I am to blame for putting al those tears in your eyes
Some say that forgiveness is the key
To solving most of the problems one might face

Verse 3
Sometimes you and I feel helpless even when we're together
It might sound strange
But it's absolutely true
We really don't accomplish anything at all
I think it's too early to throw the towel in
But I'm not sure if working things out will be worthwhile for us in the end

Chorus 1
Tell me what I should do
So I can get to you
I do not like the fact that we're falling apart
Now's the time to take serious action
And try to mend the broken pieces
I said I'd be there till the end
That's my promise to you
I have no intentions of changing my mind
As I stand before you today
I will swear to do the best that I can

Chorus 2
I'll tell you what to do
So you can get to me
You said you don't like the fact that we're falling apart
Now's the time to turn things around
And try to build a relationship
You said that you'd be there for me
That was the promise you made
Tell me if you're going to change your mind
As you stand before me today
Swear to me that you'll do the best that you can

Verse 1
You haven't the slightest clue as to what is going on
But I won't hold it against you
Because you're not here
I think I'm losing my mind
And I need reassurance that you will be with me soon
I can't take it anymore

Verse 2
I wish that I could tell you how I truly feel
Maybe you'd catch the next train home
And run into my arms again
I just hope that you are safe
Because I don't know what I would really do
If I ever found out I lost you

Bridge
The day that you arrive will be the day I have been waiting for
I do not know if I could hold on forever

Chorus 1
I miss you, I miss you
You've been gone for such a very long time
Loneliness hurts
I miss you, I miss you
Waiting only makes things harder for me
But what else can I do?
Please return to me

Different Cars And Trains

Verse 1
You and I have been travelling
On different cars and different trains
I see your face starring back at me
The look in your eyes says
That you no longer love me
We have drifted apart
We are living separate lives
I don't have the strength to break up with you

Verse 2
You are a roller-coaster ride
Every time I'm with you I wear a seatbelt
Sometimes you race by me faster than a speeding train
If I knew how to slow you down
I would have done it a long time ago
We have drifted apart
We are in separate worlds
I don't have the strength to let you go

Bridge
The road that I'm on leads me further away
From the life I want
I'm not sure if I'll ever be free from you

Chorus
When I turn left
You instantly go right
When I am up
You suddenly drop down
I have tried to meet you wherever you are
But you go places that I'm unfamiliar with

Sad Songs For Dirty Lovers

Verse 1
It was a blind date but he was very comfortable
He wasn't nervous; he didn't break out in a sweat
He felt like he was a lucky man
His date showed up right on time
Sparks flew immediately
Their chemistry was bouncing off the Richter scale

Verse 2
When he took her home, she invited him in
They only had one thing on their minds
And they did not waste any time
She unbuttoned his shirt
He took her shoes off
Then carried her to the bedroom
They made love passionately
Kissed each other goodnight
The next day, he didn't call her

Bridge
He has been avoiding her since that night
And she doesn't know why
She thinks that she is to blame
And only he can take away her heartache

Chorus
Sad songs for dirty lovers
Are being played on the radio
The whole show is dedicated to their sorrow
They did many bad things
Their hearts have been broken
Not they're home alone with no place to go

Divided We Stand

Verse 1
I always thought our relationship
Was built on a strong foundation
A foundation that consisted of openness and love
That was certainly an inaccurate description of it
I was blind to see what was really going on

Verse 2
Bitterness is the underlying feeling I have
Anger is what I express to you when I'm pissed off
Conversations we have always involve raised voices
Sometimes I would slam the door as I leave the room

Verse 3
We compromise one percent of the time
The other ninety-nine percent we don't see eye to eye
There are many times when I hurt you intentionally
I want to get back at you
I want you to feel the pain I'm feeling

Chorus
Divided we stand
There are many miles between us
The space continues to grow
We have ran out of solutions
You are a stranger to me now
I used to know who you were
We used to be together as one

Mouthful of Love

Verse 1
I remember the days when my body was empty
It was like a broken down refrigerator
Anything places inside of it would become rotten
I was losing a lot of weight
As a result, I was getting weaker
Getting out of bed was such a struggle
From time to time, I would collapse from dehydration
Since you met me and came into my life
I have been gaining strength
Looking back at myself, I cannot believe that I lived that way

Verse 2
Your generosity is like breakfast
It provides me with energy
I am able to share with others
And because of that, I realize that many people were just like me
What they needed was a home cooked meal
Whatever they ate was not good enough
And if no one showed that they cared
They would feel more alone

Bridge
Your compassion is like dinner
It gives me a sense of belonging
I am able to provide empathy
I am able to be more understanding
All the love that you have shown to me
Fuels me up with the desire to live every day
You saved my life, I'm thanking you for that
I will use what I learned to save someone else

Chorus
I am chewing on a mouthful of love
It's the best kind I've ever tasted
I was starving for affection
You have satisfied my hunger
I am chewing on a mouthful of love
I never knew it could be this fulfilling
My stomach was always growling
It no longer does because you fed me
