Track Name: Giving It All To You (Stripped Version)
GIVING IT ALL TO YOU

Well these are days where love is lost enough
But I won’t lose my way this time
So many days and all we want is more
So I will make the best of mine
With these illusions of things I think I see
I’ll tell you what it means

You might feel as dark as coal
But when you burn you heat my soul
In and out these days move slow
But when you speak you seek my love
So I’m giving it all to you

So anyway, I hope you stay a while
Because I think you need this too
And what I say might be old in style
But I think it still rings true
With these disasters of peoples broken hearts
Only tell us what we want

You might feel as dark as coal
But when you burn you heat my soul
In and out these days move slow
But when you speak you seek my love
So I’m giving it all to you

I’m just waiting for the words I want
Words with meaning, fire and feeling
And I can see this happening soon
But all I’ve got to do is give it all to you

You might feel as dark as coal
But when you burn you heat my soul
In and out these days move slow
But when you speak you seek my love
So I’m giving it all to you
Track Name: Here (Stripped Version)
HERE

Here you could be scared
With no one to run to
and find out that nobody cares
And here you could be cold
Shivering tight skin
that freezes you inside the bone
So all I’ll do
Is watch over you

There, everyone knows
They try to believe things
that we tease but we’ll never show
And they say that they’re catching on
Then we’ll throw them a curve ball
and say that it’s all just pretend
And all we have
Is right where we’re at

We could be living the life
they all wish they were living
No chains to hold us down
They’re labeling us how we’re missing
But we have thrown it away
‘Cause we’ve seen better days
And whatever you say
I’ll go that way

Here, just you and me
Whispering words to each other
as we fall asleep
And here, just as we are
Fingers entwined as we find
it’s all over, it’s ours
And all I am is right in your hands
Track Name: One Way Road (Stripped Version)
ONE WAY ROAD

So I’m giving what you want
But I can’t get my hands on what you’ve got
You big teaser, playing games
But I can play them too, I’m just the same

You’re moving on, I see it
But my eyes, they don’t believe it
‘Cause inside I feel
There ain’t nothing more real so…

I’ve been waited and I want you to know
Your love is irreplaceable
inside of my emotions
But this falling is getting old
So bye-bye love
It’s a one way road

Knocked down and thrown back
I’m losing my mind and my plan of attack
So reload or explode
It’s getting pretty crazy
‘cause I want you to know

I’m moving on, you’ll see it
Then your heart will stop receiving
All the things I’d do
If we weren’t through so…

I’ve been waited and I want you to know
Your love is irreplaceable
inside of my emotions
But this falling is getting old
So bye-bye love
It’s a one way road

So anyway
What you say
It doesn’t mean much to me now
‘Cause what I need
Is just to be
Everything I am without you
So I guess you lose

I’ve been waited and I want you to know
Your love is irreplaceable
inside of my emotions
But this falling is getting old
So bye-bye love
It’s a one way road

I’ve been waited and I want you to know
Your love is irreplaceable
inside of my emotions
But this falling is getting old
So bye-bye love
It’s a one way road

It’s a one way
It’s a one way
It’s a one way road
Track Name: Who You Are (Stripped Version)
WHO YOU ARE

I don’t need you
Looking at me
Examining closely
What you see

Reaching in slowly
Feeling deep down
If you came to your senses
You’d leave this town

Losing ambition
Calling all shots
If you want me to
I’ll teach you to love what you’ve got

And ooh life keeps pushing
But you keep losing yourself
Before you find out where are
Did you find out who you are?
Because I did

Well maybe you see it
Maybe you don’t
You’re burning these bridges
I’m giving us hope

Keeping a distance
But calling me friend
You’re writing our history
But you’re just writing fiction

Staying up too late
Losing your sleep
Your conclusion is
Confusion is all that you need

And ooh life keeps pushing
But you keep losing yourself
Before you find out where are
Did you find out who you are?
Because I did
Track Name: Sentimental Spell (Stripped Version)
SENTIMENTAL SPELL

Well I could be waiting outside your door
But I’ve got boxes that tell me more
Staying up late, peeling off the tape
I’m staring at photographs, I relate
‘Cause that’s the only way it last

And I’ve been saving
Look at everything that I’ve been collecting
Some might argue
Out with the old and in with the new
But I can’t choose on what to lose
Just promise me you’ll be the last to go

‘Cause this is how I deal
with the way I feel
I’m caught inside a sentimental spell
And moving back in time
always keeps you mine
But you could never really tell

Well you could be lost and never found
Like movie stubs and old notes
that hit the ground
I know that I’ve got no explanation
For looking at you like an ex-possession
Still you always bring me down

And I’ve been saving
Look at all the space that I’ve been wasting
Will you slide to my side?
And relive the day when we both died
And I promise you this time I’ll do
Anything to keep your eyes on mine

‘Cause this is how I deal
with the way I feel
I’m caught inside a sentimental spell
And moving back in time
always keeps you mine
But you could never really tell

Is there any way possible
To keep my mind at logical,
not probable?
Is there any way to undo
The past and make break
like mirrored glass without correction?
‘Cause I don’t want to see
the reflection anymore

‘Cause this is how I deal
with the way I feel
I’m caught inside a sentimental spell
And moving back in time
always keeps you mine
But you could never really tell

And this is how I deal
with the way I feel
I’m caught inside a sentimental spell
And moving back in time
always keeps you mine
But you could never really tell
No you could never really tell
Track Name: The Lighting (Stripped Version)
THE LIGHTING

We are innocent for everything that’s wrong
And you make statements with
your words in every song
And you can act for every camera
But you know that’s not the answer
When you only give if someone seems to look

And we keep falling for the
words you have to say
Never questioning your million dollar days
And they can put you on a magazine
To show off your celebrity
But have you really ever made a change?

‘Cause we are working
And we are fighting
While you are living
In the lighting

So maybe this is how you’ve always been
Always searching for a way to grab attention
And you can pose for every picture
And drink up every mixture
As you’re paid to show your face in busy places

But we are working
And we are fighting
And we are searching
Without the lighting

And I know I’m not that I’m perfect
But at least I know what love is
And if I could I’d give a hand to every man
‘Cause I’m lucky just to be here
And that’s the way I see it clear
But you complain
‘Cause you’re so vain

We are working
And we are fighting
While you are living
In the lighting

We are working (we are working)
And we are fighting (we are fighting)
While you are living (you are living)
In the lie, in the lie, in the lighting
In the lighting

So we will cheer you all the way
across the field
And we will listen to your music
just to feel
And we will see you at the movies
While the money keeps you moving
But your celebrity has never
made a change
