Track Name: Beautiful Is Gone
Our love has come so far but not at all / I remember the start you can’t recall / By the time it was right you didn’t want to fall / If it’s over say it’s over / Blindly I let you destroy me / Love is not so beautiful when your lungs are caving in / And beautiful is gone / Oh don’t lie to me when we both know baby beautiful is gone / I pushed you so hard but not at all / You closed your eyes / I could see it all / Run out the door see no more of you and what you do
/ Blindly I let you destroy me / Love is not so beautiful when your lungs are caving in and beautiful is gone / Oh don’t lie to me when we both know baby / Beautiful is gone / Beautiful is gone / What’s in store now that you have shut the door? / Peek in through the open crack / I can’t keep from crawling back for more / Crawling back for more / Say its over if it’s over / Blindly I let you destroy me / Love is not so beautiful when your lungs are caving in and beautiful is gone / Oh don’t lie to me when we both know baby / Beautiful is gone
Track Name: Collide
You know I won’t start taking pictures until the trip is done / You know I won’t stop blowing kisses at everyone / It’s not where we are it’s where we’re going that gets me inside / Right where the heart and the headache where they collide / Straight to the heart of the problem but the damage is done / I pick up the phone call the medics but they never come / Swept under the rug where no one can see / I’ve already lost a small part of me / Take what you want / No please just take what you need / Love pull me / Love heal me / Oh how she comes when we collide / Not now you’ll say this is the game we play / And our love comes when we collide / It drives us apart, this attraction / It wont be our fault / Stand with your feet on the stairway but you never walk / When will you move / Leave here for good / Can’t break the strings that you never could / It’s all that you want / Its all that you need / Love pull me / Love heal me / Our love comes when we collide / Not now you say / This is the game we play / Our love comes when we collide / Can you feel it / Can you heal it / No? / Love pull me and love it heals me / Our love comes when we collide / Not now you say / This is how the game is played / Our love comes when we collide
Track Name: Time & Place
Look up, don’t you look down / This place is above / Not below the ground / The time is here / The clock is run down / The dreaming is over / Not awake but somehow I’m found / Enough, did I do enough? / A lifetime of hiding catching up / It really caught up / If this is the light on my face / If this is the time and the place / Then I can look back on my days and know that I’ve been there / So now, in the light of this hour / All the ones that I’ve touched and I loved have gathered around / I wish they could see what I see now / They’d never believe what I see now / If they only knew what I found out there / If this is the light on my face / If this is the time and the place / Then I can look back on my days and know that I’ve been there / Wish they could see what I see now/ They’d never believe what I see now/ This is the light on my face / This is the time and the place / Then I can look back on my days and know that I’ve been there / And how can’t you love what’s been done and how can’t you love when you’ve moved someone / If that’s all I have when I’m done / Then let me begin there / Let me begin there
Track Name: Come Here Come On
Oh no oh no you just can’t hide your surprise / When I tell you / Oh no oh no you just can’t pretend it’s alright when I ask you / Come here c’mon and take it away / Come here if you’ve got nothing to say / Come here I’ll make you afraid / I don’t want to find another you / I don’t want to find another you / Oh no no / It’s no surprise / Open your eyes / Feel the abuse / All the temptations / All the sensations / Give me some truth / Come here c’mon and take it away / Come here if you’ve got nothing to say / Come here I’ll make you afraid / I don’t want to find another you / I don’t want to find another you / Breaking in two is so hard to do / But easier than to return again / I don’t want to find another you / I don’t want to find another you
Track Name: Satellite
Can you hold on to your child as the sun sets in your eyes and you face those darkened skies / Can you hold on? / But he will push away to make his great escape / There’s nothing you can say / Won’t you hold on? / You will see, see him bleed / You can’t pave the path he made / Satellite flying high / Won’t you come on down / Down to the ground / The tighter that you squeeze / The more he craves release / He’s asking you please / Can you hold on? / But he will push you away to make his great escape / There’s nothing you can say / Won’t you hold on? / You will see, see him bleed / You can’t pave the path he made / Satellite flying high / Won’t you come on down / Down to the ground / Can you hold on to your child / As the sun sets in your eyes / And you face those darkened skies / Can you hold on? / You will see, see him bleed / You can’t pave the path he made / Down to the ground / Satellite flying high / Won’t you come on down / Down to the ground
Track Name: Sit Down Stare Out
As the elevator rises to the 13th floor I ride and I’m holding on for life / Should I step out? / Should I get out and knock on your door tonight? / While you’re laughing out inside / Because what you see in me Is nothing but a shadow of what I see in you I lie awake while dreaming / Pretend to hear you breathing / Pretend I’m not alone / But I’m without you and I can barely breathe when I’m without you / So I drop my hands down to my side and run downstairs hoping that you didn’t see me / and sit down stare out at the numbers on your door / Drive off, forget to remember you some more / What you see in me is nothing but a shadow of what I see in you / I lie awake while dreaming / Pretend to hear you breathing / Pretend I’m not alone / But I’m without you and I can barely breathe when I’m without you / When I’m without you / Rescue me / So I drop my hands down to my side and then I start to run / So I drop my hands down to my side and then I start to run / Run / What you see in me is nothing but a shadow of what I see in you / I lie awake while dreaming / Pretend to hear you breathing / Pretend I’m not alone / But I’m without you and I can barely breathe when I’m without you
Track Name: Monochrome
Slow down / We’re gonna take our time and make this right / Drag out / Everything that’s eating at your mind / So I deceived you cause I can’t believe you and now I’ve turned the tide / So monochrome / I watched the color drain from you / Where’s the color in this life? / Watch me doing all you’ve always feared / Just try and stop me / Pulling all the strings I can from here / So I deceived you oh / So monochrome / I watched the color drain from you / Where’s the color in this life / So monochrome / I took all I feared in you and that you must despise / It feels so good not to need you / It feels so good not to need you / But it’s so sad to watch you fall / Cause I took it all / So I deceived you cause I can’t believe you and now I’ve turned the tide / So monochrome / I watched the color drain from you / Where’s the color in this life? / So monochrome / I took all I feared in you and that you must despise
Track Name: Contagious
the hardest part of giving up
is not knowing when you’re done
i used to think i was tough enough
to last forever, to call your bluff

so how do you know when you’re done
when the battle at hand just can’t be won

this hurt is contagious
and only time will save us
never alone
i can’t give you all away
never alone
what will it take to make you stay
stay, stay

it’s the damaged start i have to stop
all the time it took to find out who we are
my guilt assured for my part
i bear forever i can’t hide this scar

so how do you know when it’s done
when the battle at hand just can’t be won

this hurt is contagious
and only time will save us
never alone
i can’t give you all away
never alone
what will it take to make you stay
stay, stay

you took the time to write me off
you held me close you made me soft
now i am falling apart
i blurred the line and you took it all
a dying sign, there’s nothing left at all

this hurt is contagious
this hurt is contagious

this hurt is contagious
(and i can’t give you all away…)
and only time will save us
(and i can’t give you all away…)
never alone
i can’t give you all away
never alone
what will it take to make you stay
Track Name: Crazy Girl (Ne M'oubliez Pas)
i was trashed in the underground
you were alone
it was fast, you were dirty then
you took me home
through the back door
you pulled me downstairs
you took it all off, then you disappeared

now the taste of you is
burned into my head
and now im turned around
i never left your bed

on a lonely night
with a crazy girl
did he feel alright?
when you killed the world

im waiting, im watching walls,
what did i hear?
am i just paranoid?
could it be all that i fear?
i climb upstairs, slide open the door
who is that in you while you beg for more

now that sight of you is
burned into my head
through the window,
guess im going home instead

on a lonely night
with a crazy girl
did he feel alright?
when you killed the world

the end is here but i’ll be alright
the end is here but i’ll be alright

the end is here but i’ll be alright
the end is here but i’ll be alright

the end is here but i’ll be alright
the end is here but i’ll be alright

on a lonely night
with a crazy girl
did he feel alright?
when you killed the world

on a lonely night
with a crazy girl
did he feel alright?
when you killed the world
Track Name: Midnight in the City
i’ve never seen you so sad
what happened anyway?
did he make you pay today?

i’ve never wanted you so bad
just something in you
pushing me away

the more you push
the more i crave you
the more you push…

just take your coat and leave your clothes
midnight in the city
break the skin, relieve the sin
midnight in the city

been on this block before
i know this dirty street
what it meant to me

to get inside your door
tiny little room
was everything i need

oh the more you push….

just take your coat and leave your clothes
midnight in the city
break the skin, relieve the sin
midnight in the city
she’ll swallow you whole
there’s no where else to go
oh no where else to go

just take your coat but leave your clothes
midnight in the city
break the skin, relieve the skin
midnight in the city
just take your coat but leave your clothes
midnight in the city
break the skin, re-live your sins
midnight in the city
