Track Name: While the World Sleeps
While the World Sleeps

Don't close your eyes and let
the whole world pass you by
the answers come when
your eyes are open wide
Now its time to realize
to your surprise
you won't get nowhere you need to be
if you don't believe and see.

And while the world sleeps
look into your dreams
And while the world sleeps
the heart is where it keeps
And while the world sleeps
we'll escape to a distant land
And while the world sleeps
I'll hold your hand

Ignore the chaos surrounding you
'cause you know what you've got to do
your life's a battle
you just can't stop and lose.
And when its quiet
we'll go up to your room (oh)
rest now and soon
you'll find the truth

And while the world sleeps
look into your dreams
And while the world sleeps
the heart is where it keeps
And while the world sleeps
we'll escape to a distant land
And while the world sleeps
I'll hold your hand

[Bridge]

And while the world sleeps
look into your dreams
And while the world sleeps
the heart is where it keeps
And while the world sleeps
we'll escape to a distant land
And while the world sleeps
I'll hold your hand

Track Name: Found Myself
Found Myself

So I'm sittin' in the mirror and
I just think I found my truth
It wasn't in the paper or the magazines
or baby out on the from stoop
Not the most popular move I know
but the only way I can grow
And dammit I'm grown' (hey)
into me

I think I found myself
It started with me
and no one else
I looked inside
qualcune provono
and baby lo fatto
baby I did
I did I did (hey)

So they say I got 20/20 vision
'cause I'm looking so clear
Well I could care less about a man
or some money from a funky old career
My advice to you
find a little thing you like to do
'cause I did (yeah)
dammit I did (oh)

I think I found myself
It started with me
and no one else
I looked inside
qualcune provono
and baby lo fatto
baby I did
I did, I did

I wished and I followed
(yeah) I opened up my bottle
and found my star (oh)
I kissed all the sunshine
realized I'm a diamond mine
Lost my mind and found myself

{guitar solo with scatting}

I think I found myself
It started with me
and no one else
I looked inside
qualcune provono
and baby lo fatto
baby I did
I did, I did
Track Name: Nowhere
Nowhere

The cool breeze of the afternoon
takes me back,
takes me back to the month of June
When I first fell in love with you
'cause you make all the difference
you were always there to listen
to my every cry
when I talked about those other guys
now I'm asking' why?

I'm steady going nowhere
hoping that this love will pass (alright)
'Cause I want you bad babe
And I just can't stand what I just can't have
Steady going nowhere
hoping that this love will pass (uh-huh)
'Cause I want you bad baby
But I just can't stand what I just can't have
(I need you)
And I just can't have you baby

So, slowly I drift into a state of peace
My mind at ease,
I erase what has once brought me to my knees
Contemplate what's wrong
I figure, might as well write this love song
Why does love gotta last this long?
Wish I knew (wish I knew) all along (yeah)

Steady going nowhere
hoping that this love will pass
'Cause I want you bad babe
And I just can't stand what I just can't have
Steady going nowhere
hoping that this love will pass
'Cause I want you bad baby
But I just can't stand what I just can't have
And I just can't have you baby
(just can't have you baby)

{Bridge}

Steady going nowhere
hoping that this love will pass
'Cause I want you bad babe
And I just can't stand what I just can't have
Steady going nowhere
hoping that this love will pass
'Cause I want you bad baby
And I just can't stand what I just can't have
And I just can't have you baby

Track Name: Four Letters
Four Letters

We talked about these four letters
As if they ever mattered
Did they matter babe?
Sometimes I feel like
I'll be alone forever (yeah)

Now I don't mean to sound depressing
But this issue is too pressing
But don't you worry for me babe
Some things they just aren't meant to be because…

In this life things
They come and go
We grow apart
But you'll always be in my heart

I guess its time
To pack my things and move on
But don't you be sad
You did nothing wrong
Sometimes, feelings change
As the days go on
We wanted different things
Much more than
What natural love could bring
Its tough but suck it up
Be cool
Heartbreaks don't last too long
Gone soon

In this life things
They come and go
We grow apart
But you'll always be in my heart

We talked about these four letters
As if they ever mattered
They never mattered babe?
Sometimes I felt like that
You'd be mine forever(yeah)

Now I don't mean to impose this pressure
But I can't live without your pleasure
But don't you worry for me
Some things they just aren't meant to be because…

In this life things
They come and go
We grow apart
But you'll always be in my heart

Track Name: Fly V
Fly V


Empty promises don't mean a thing (yeah)
You told me you'd be there when I needed wings
Maybe its me but I need you with me, to be
'Cause if we were birds, you'd be the leader of my V (my V)

I'm sick of how these things panned out
If it was planned with a life span the time's ran out
I'm a stand up woman with one hand out
It seems my jokes is getting' old and they so played out
Well my soul's played now 'cause I'm chasing my lonely
There's a ghost in the room but its only…(uh-huh) me
My catastrophe, why when I close my eyes your the only person I see?
I so tired of fitting' pieces where they don't belong
like lyrics outcast with hooks that don't fit the song
Your a bad melody, our love's the dissonance
I'm a working symphony but your like broken instruments
Your my accidental, accidentally hit the wrong note
In the song figure where we went wrong though
I put you on another level
He loves me, he loves me not
Look up and see the fallen pedals

Empty promises don't mean a thing (yeah)
You told me you'd be there when I needed wings
Maybe its me, but I need you with me, to be
'Cause if we were birds, you'd be the leader of my V (my V)

(Na, na, na)

Falling, falling flying solo its no go
It's not working here at all
The wind's too strong for me alone
My friend, my love I need you to pick up my slack
Yes I promise, I promise
something you cannot take back
Falling, falling flying solo its no go
It's not working here at all
The winds too strong for me alone
My friend, my love I need you to pick up my slack
You know that I know
You will always have my back (yeah)

{Guitar Solo}

Empty promises don't mean a thing (yeah)
You told me you'd be there when I needed wings
Maybe its me, but I need you with me, to be
'Cause if we were birds, you'd be the leader of my V (my V)

Track Name: So High
SO HIGH

I gaze around, feet up off the ground
I lose my balance, I’m all wrapped up in nature’s silence
It’s not a havoc, I’m fine, I’m floating into space

Already three feet high, it’s a new dimension
I look down see the chains and feel release from all the tension
It’s a fact (yeah baby) I, drift with the thought of that into the outside air, up there, out
there, somewhere

(and then) I’m so high, I can almost touch the sky
I’m so high, with my openness of mind, I’m so high, I can almost touch the sky
I’m so high

Forward on, through the midst of the apprehension
I stumble upon the divide of old symptoms and new redemption
It’s a fact, yeah baby, drift with the thought of that into outside air, out there, up there,
somewhere

Call me crazy but I finally feel so alive
I’ve reached the peak, found the point where all my emotions derive
I am, I’m found, I’m becoming who I need to be
Cuz I’m surrounded by love and all of nature’s beauty

(and then) I’m so high, I can almost touch the sky
I’m so high, with my openness of mind, I’m high, I can almost touch the sky
I’m so high
Track Name: The One I Want
You’re the one I want
You’re the one I need
You’re the one my heart beats for
'Cause you complete me

After the fall standing fine
knowing that you’re mine
ease my mind til I’m blind
And so blindly,
follow your heart beats line
we connect in a place
and beat at the same time see,
I can’t stand that you accuse me,
of doing things so ungratefully,
when your grace, I give thanks,
and pray gracefully,
hold you close in my heart as my sanctuary

You’re acting out of jealousy,
just let it be, trust my words, so honestly,
insecurities lead to dishonesty,
you renig 'cause you’re acting hypocritically,
how bout we just cut the bull
and live life fervently,
its so absurd, we don’t hear the word,
we listen, but not comprehend our reading,
the meaning, Corinthians 1:13 in my head repeating…

You’re the one I want
You’re the one I need
You’re the one my heart beats for
'Cause you complete me

Hey now baby, why you turn yo head so fast
from my hands a'grasping,
to ease your mind
your so worked up off those false signs

The trouble with us, there’s no confidence
or trust in our love, makes us so insecure
so we pursue more,
not knowing, that we’re running…

You’re the one I want
You’re the one I need
You’re the one my heart beats for
'Cause you complete me

You’re the one I want
the one I need (need)
the one I want (want)
the one I need (need)
the one I want (want)
the one who completes
me, me, me, me...
Track Name: Air Lift
AIRLIFT

Reaching for the words I describe,
exactly how I feel inside
seems to coincide with my drive to subside
from reality escape on a ride,
become masters of our paradise
and cut back to real time,
like the beat under the rhyme,
I’m out an under my mind
'cause my soul says fight
but my mouth gives my tongue a bite,
just a bi polar plight
that keeps me at a safer place
like cars with hand breaks

Our L-O-V-E is greater than a V
dilated to the left 45 degrees
Makes my heart skip beats
like a child that doesn’t want veggies
only cakes and sweets
So I breathe,
take a moment to pull down my sleeves
I’m at a loss for gravity,
whether we want it or not,
our love has shot out like some track starter blocks!

You are my air lift
so take me to our spaceship
we don’t belong in this
our love is out of
this world
x2

To love you is the most pleasurable struggle,
its only in this world that it’s hard to juggle
So it’s you that I smuggle through the gates of the heavens, feeling free as we enjoy each others presence,
and if time is of the essence,
us in the present is the essence I am guessing,
so while I’m confessing,
call the priest 'cause I found a new meaning of a blessing,
and I don’t speak blasphemy,
just out of passion I know he will blast for me,
catch me gasping cuz I’m all at sea,
like a fish out of water its hard to breathe,
so take me to our rocket ship,
so we can rocket outta here while we rock out on this,
infinity and beyond and outta this world,
and explosion created by a boy and a girl

You are my air lift
so take me to our spaceship
we don’t belong in this
our love is out of
this world
x2

Hey baby, why don’t you take my hand,
I’ll follow you wherever you wanna go
Yeah baby, I’m ready to, blast right out of here,
so turn that key, and take me on a ride
yeah

You are my air lift
so take me to our spaceship
we don’t belong in this
our love is out of
this world
x2
Track Name: Lost Souls
LOST SOULS

Well what you going to do
when heavens at your door,
Came for what you been missing,
not what you’ve been waiting for
We tell ourselves that we been good
doing what we should
Well I’ll tell you one thing,
while no one’s listening,
We’re turning bad one by one

(but you can) Catch up on your sleep while you are dreaming
'Cause when you wake you’ll be back to scheming
You go, whichever way the wind blows,
And drifting away with it goes, the lost souls

Let me put the concept like this,
we’re living like we're swimming like fish
But maybe it’s none of my business,
but when we follow perils of life,
it fills us all with some strife,
and that is my business
The greatest part about it all,
we’re building ourselves up to fall,
with no safety net
So if you’re planning on doing bad things,
don’t answer the door when heaven rings

(but you can) Catch up on your sleep while you are dreaming
'Cause when you wake you’ll be back to scheming
You go, whichever way the wind blows,
And drifting away with it goes, the lost souls

Your reason for the rationality of things,
and when that’s gone
wonder what goes with the rain,
the forecast predicts a winter storm,
so I suggest hold on to your own it comes..

Catch up on your sleep while you are dreaming
'Cause when you wake you’ll be back to scheming
You go, whichever way the wind blows,
And drifting away with it goes, the lost souls
Track Name: Bonus Track - I Surrender My Love (live in London)
I Surrender My Love (live in London)

Pacing around my room
When its thoughts of you
My mind's consumed
I can't seem to ease this burn
When you're everywhere I turn (I turn)

Maybe its just the fact that I fell for you so fast
Memories speak you name
Well, I surrender my love to you
Hoping you do the same (the same)

{Guitar & Piano Duet}

Pacing around my room
When its thoughts of you
My mind's consumed
I can't seem to ease this burn
When you're everywhere I turn (I turn)

Maybe its just the fact that I fell for you so fast
Memories speak you name
Well, I surrender my love to you
Hoping you do the same (the same)
Track Name: Bonus Track - I'm Sorry
I’M SORRY

I’ve been tripping out my mind, ask myself why
patiently I waited, yet briefly I sighed
I let the greatest moment slip by
You were my greatest moment F-Y-I

I speak softly, I dream hardly
spend my nights awake down at our spot by the lake
I can’t breathe, you leave, my world quakes
I love you hard body, to the face (wait)
They say cheaters never prosper
and fear will make your heart stop
Anxiously I’m waiting
Losing love will make your body drop
Well I’m dropping to the floor
ONE last THING for you
"Walk out the door"

Baby did I tell you that I’m sorry that I hurt you
I’m sorry I deceived you
Baby did I tell you never meant to mistreat you
or cause you harm (yeah)
All I ever wanted was to be your number one (yeah)
the only one you want (yeah)
But now I am your worst
been removed from my place first
the only one now
left and hurt,

(Baby now)
I’m sorry (oh)
I’m sorry (yeah)
I’m sorry (baby)
x4

Looking at your picture it hurts
to know that I was, once first in your heart
Baby if you asked me to stay, I will (I will, I will) i will
You ask me to wait, for you (for you, for you) I would

Baby did I tell you that I’m sorry that I hurt you
I’m sorry I deceived you
Baby did I tell you never meant to mistreat you
or cause you harm (yeah)
All I ever wanted was to be your number one (yeah)
the only one you want (yeah)
But now I am your worst
been removed from my place first
the only one now
left and hurt,

(Baby now)
I’m sorry (oh)
