Track Name: Shut Up
Shut up and look at me
The man you used to beat with your words is dead and will stand up now
You’ll be sorry
Shut up and look at me

You used to beat me up
You used give me hell and tell all your friends that I was your slave now
You’ll be sorry
That time is over now

I hope your life is better now
You can’t give love if love is something that you never ever felt
I wish you the best
I hope you’re surprised to hear this
Track Name: Fear Is Not The Answer
Straight line is
Not the only road
Directions are yours to find
Trust yourself
Be yourself
Happiness is hard to see

(but) Fear is not the answer

Don’t you worry?
Don’t you mind?
Are you aware that you’re alive?
Just wait and see
Can you trust me?
I’m here to help you notice that…

Fear is not the answer
Track Name: Get Out Of Your Room
Get out of your room
You’ve cried enough today
Get a hold of yourself
He don’t deserve you


You may think
That it’s the end of the world
A girl like you
Won’t stay alone too long


Oh!
Yeah!
Look at you go
You’re dancing like there’s no tomorrow


Hello pretty girl
Dry your tears and laugh
Go see your friends
They want to see you dance

Get out of your room
You’ve cried enough today
Get a hold of yourself
He don’t deserve you
Track Name: What Am I Gonna Do?
Looney Tunes don’t cheer me up today
Dark clouds are heading up my way

I know it’s not my first day on Earth
In the past I made it through
But everything’s changing
What am I gonna do?


Don’t make me get out of my home today
I’m sad and grumpy, don’t lay eyes on me

I know it’s not my first day on Earth
In the past I made it through
But everything’s changing
What am I gonna do?


If the sun don’t shine into my room
It won’t be the first time that I have to Kick myself

I know it’s not my first day on Earth
In the past I made it through
But everything’s changing
What am I gonna do?
Track Name: If I'm With You
I know that he made you cry
But he’s my best friend
It doesn’t mean that I agree
With all his actions

If he lied
I will not lie to you
I don’t care what he does
All I want
Is your attention
One small moment to express

I know that he made you cry
But I’m not like him
I would like to take you out
Without his dark cloud

A kiss goodnight
On your forehead
And I’ll be satisfied
To bring some goodness
In your world
Would be great in my life

I would never let you down
No, I would never let you down
If I’m with you

If you let me prove myself
I’ll show you wonder
I may drive you where you want
To make you happy

A kiss goodnight
On your forehead
And I’ll be satisfied
To bring some goodness
In your world
Would be great in my life

I would never let you down
No, I would never let you down
If I’m with you
Track Name: All I've got
Let me take you where you’ve never been
Far away from here with no phone near
A peaceful place for you and me
Where all our friends are not invited
No one telling us what to do
All I’ve got I’ll give it to you
All I’ve got I’ll give it to you

All I’ve got I’ll give it to you


I think it’s about time you face the truth
That I’ll be there for you day and night
We’ll keep our secrets for ourselves
Sometimes happiness is hard to see
Look ahead with me we’ll be happy
All I’ve got I’ll give it to you
All I’ve got I’ll give it to you

All I’ve got I’ll give it to you


I’ve been down for God knows how long
Down too long
Now’s the time to rise again
Now’s my time to shine
‘cause
I got you babe
I got you babe
Track Name: Memory
There goes the sun
An other day is going down in history
Were you there to live it
Or did you watch the parade passing you by

Memory
About a time where everything was going right
What did happen to you?
Life’s so short make sure you’re do your best


You don’t know who you are
Don’t put the blame on anyone else
You don’t know who you are
Maybe someone else will claim to know you

In the end you are what you remember
Memory is part of the equation
To confirm who you are.

Do you remember?
When everything you said was meaningless and vain
You don’t have a clue
On how the words you used were hard on me

Memory
About the lies that change each time you tell your tale
You don’t need to impress me
Who are you and what do you need to prove?

You don’t know who you are
Don’t put the blame on anyone else
You don’t know who you are
Maybe someone else will claim to know you

In the end you are what you remember
Memory is part of the equation
To confirm who you are.
Track Name: No Need To Come Back
If only I could let you
See what’s inside my head
I don’t know if you would scream
I don’t know if you’ll run to the sun

You better run
Until it’s over
Coming back is not what you hope for
You better run
Until it’s over
Coming back is not good for you

There’s no need to come back
There’s no need to come back
There’s no need to come back home

There’s no need to come back
There’s no need to come back
There’s no need to come back home
Track Name: Madly In Love
“You fit well in my life
I want you by my side”
That’s what that girl said to me

Who are you to tell me?
(That) She told you the same story
Your silence tell the truth


You, scratch your head
Wondering what she’d been doing all this time
You, never knew her
Like Mona Lisa on your couch
I’ll take care of her
‘cause, she’s so precious
She so precious
She’s so precious to me


I’m so madly in love
I’m so madly in love


She told me the story
That long ago she loved you
But got tired of waiting

There’s no word to describe
This woman has nine lives
I wonder what you were thinking


You, scratch your head
Wondering what she’d been doing all this time
You, never knew her
Like Mona Lisa on your couch
I’ll take care of her
‘cause, she’s so precious
She so precious
She’s so precious to me
Track Name: Fly
Fly to the river
Fly to the sea
To a place where we both smile
Where peace is in our soul

Run to the river
Run to the sea
To a place where we both smile
Where peace is in our soul


I know what you need
You’ve been working too hard lately
You need to escape from here
You need to get away with me
Track Name: Hello Again
Hello again
Where have you been?
You disappeared
How was your night?

It’s time to go home now
It’s so late my watch won’t work
Finish your drink
It’s not that one that will make you worse

Hello again
How have you been?
We didn’t talk
You were busy

It’s time to go home now
We’ll take time to talk another time
It was good to see you
You know I always was a fan of yours
