Track Name: Don`t Let Go
Hey there, how are you?
Dad says you're wearing no clothes
Scaring the crows / Nobody knows but you
Day to relax under a tree / With your happy childhood memories

Don't let go

Gorgeous fragrance throughout the house
Sleep in Sunday morning, quiet as a mouse
Blue skies, deep grass of the warm gentle air
Breeze blows through your lungs / A flower in yr hair

Don't let go
Track Name: Quantum Leap
The dead zone is the need to comply
The dead zone is the sign of the times

It's all been moving and we're losing our lives
Someone's saying that they're hoping to die
They threw her in the gutter like a pile of shit / Oh why

Heart to heart / Mind to mind
We are the ones who will travel through time
We are / Mind to mind
We are the ones who will travel through time
We are
Track Name: Maybe
Go ahead say what I want you to say / That I wanted you
Sun to rain follows everyday / Follows everyday / I expected you to

Strike me down
Fight this town
Guide me around the bend

Not this time / Going out of my mind / I guess you wanted me to
Shut the blinds / I guess you wanted to die / I guess you wanted me to

Strike me down / Fight this town
Guide me around the bend

1995 / Stay alive

Maybe
Track Name: The Vampire
Trying / Tender kisses / Run! / Is my wish for you
Trying / Tender drops of blood / Stay awake! / I am thinking of you

How far / Does your / Lover go / With you?

Crying / Tender growing boy / Stay awake! / Is my prayer for you
Crying / Tender clutches / Run! / I am thinking of you

How far / Does your / Lover go / With you?

All that you left you left for someone
All of this hurt that's wilted off
All this relief it's the oddest thing
Oh my god!
Track Name: Hot Red
Make a fist / Like this
Whisper a threat / In pirhouettes
Spun webs around the edge of my bed
With a blade of grass in your mouth
Make a bright black wish / To wet my chest with pearls of sweat
From the small of an angel’s back
There is relief / Beneath / These covers

I will open you up with my fingertips
And I’ll slide my way inside
I will force my tongue between your lips
While you suck every single taste bud I can taste you with / So dry

Little angel hips / Your skin’s too soft like a bright pink lovers sky
With an ear to your breastbone I can hear you cry
For your favorite toy and a boy to knit you sweaters
Write you letters and break you off
There is release / Beneath / These covers

I will open you up with my fingertips
And I’ll slide my way inside
I will force my tongue between your lips
While you suck every single taste bud I can taste you with / So dry

And it feels stupid / But I’m happy I can feel
Gonna fall out my underpants / When I see your face
Gonna lie wide open
And you can turn me sideways and sing in mists of heavy breathing
About all the ways you like me best
Gonna fall out my underpants
Track Name: Dream, Don`t Wake Me
If I may / If I might / Lay me down weeping
If I say / What it's like / I might be dreaming
If I knew / What is right / I might have to save me and heal

With tears in your long hair / Afraid for this moment
These chains hold my wind so I can't breathe

Breathe / Breathe / Don’t wake / Don’t wake me

If I may / If I might / Wake me up to see me
If I do / If I like / You send me out to sea
If I lay / Cold as ice / I may have to save me and heal

It feels like an omen / You’re raised for this moment
These chains from my old life I don’t need

Dream / Dream / Don’t wake / Don’t wake me

Wish me good / Wish me light / Find me out at sea
On our way / Through the night / City lights will guide me
If I wail / And if I sigh / Just turn up the TV

With tears in your pocket / And raised for this moment
These tears from my old life in my tea

Dream / Dream / Don’t wake / Don’t wake me
Track Name: The Only Thing
Touch me I'm here with you / Oh I ache and oh I want of you
It makes my mind and body burn / Yeah I’m here with you
And though I dreamed of you
I've been dreaming of the times we never knew
And though I dreamed of you
In the distance fading from view

Touch me I am numb with you / It makes it so beautiful
It all starts pouring in my eyes
And you know, did you know you’re precious to me
Did you know it’s the earth that’s pouring in my eyes
It’s pouring in my eyes

You're the only thing I’ve ever known but now I feel it's time to go
You're the only thing I’ll ever need but now I feel it's time to leave

Touch me I’m here with you
The more I get, the more I want of you
Makes my mind and body burn
Every day, any day I can think of you
And my body burns like heaven

Feel weak when I dream of you
Feel weak, don't know what I'm gonna do

You're the only thing I’ve ever known but now I feel it's time to go
You're the only thing I’ll ever need but now I feel it's time to leave
