Track Name: Underestimate
It’s everything or not at all,
Let’s take that angle.
I’m sick of playing half way games.
You built me up just to watch me fall,
Just to teach a lesson.
Then say you love me everyday.

So why do we underestimate our love, each time,
You and I?
And why do we overcomplicate our love?
You keep coming back in,
(Oh yeah you’re coming right in)
And stealing my heart away.

In my tears, why don’t I walk away?
It’d stop the panic.
My heart has only ever beat for you.
My monster fear is big enough for two,
I am calmed by Xanax
I take a breath and really look at you.

So why do we underestimate our love, each time,
You and I?
And why do we overcomplicate our love?
You keep coming back in,
(Oh yeah you’re coming right in)
And stealing my heart away.

We can move mountains,
We can hold daylight,
We can swim oceans,
When we’re in love.
When we’re in love.

So why do we underestimate our love, each time,
You and I?
And why do we overcomplicate our love?
You keep coming back in,
(Oh yeah you’re coming right in)
And stealing my heart away.

Why do we underestimate our love?
And why do we overcomplicate our love?
Each time, you and I.
Track Name: Brand New
Is my mind on fire?
Will I ever lose control?
Will this world give inspiration,
In my life before I go.

It seems to me there’s no feeling that’s greater than this. (x2)

I got the power to feel ,
I got the power to feel brand new.

You want the power to feel brand new,
Then hit override into overdrive.
You want the power to feel brand new,
Then hit override into overdrive.
Then hold on.

Will it be my time?
My profile says I’m whole.
Can you see I’m independent?
Shining bright in a new soul.

It seems to me there’s no feeling that’s greater than this,
Everybody’s talking trash living hard never looking back. (x2)

I got the power to feel ,
I got the power to feel brand new.

You want the power to feel brand new,
Then hit override into overdrive.
You want the power to feel brand new,
Then hit override into overdrive.
Then hold on.

Everybody’s talking trash living hard never looking back. (x2)

You want the power to feel brand new,
Then hit override into overdrive.
You want the power to feel brand new,
Then hit override into overdrive.
Then hold on.

Everybody’s talking trash living hard never looking back. (x2)

I got the power to feel.
I got to feel brand new.
Track Name: Happy Together
You’ve been running round,
And acting crazy all week,
But we’re happy together,
Happy together.

You were such an angry person,
We didn’t speak.
But we’re happy together, my sweet.

Try to set the boundaries,
But we fall in a heap.
But happy together,
Happy together.

You’re hard to understand,
Until your drama’s complete.
But we’re happy together, my sweet.

We’re spinning around,
I’m up and you’re down.
We’re spinning around,
We’re upside down.

You think you’re so amusing,
But your jokes miss the mark.
But we’re happy together,
Happy together.

You’re driving round in circles,
Would you just find a park?
But we’re happy together, two hearts.

We’re spinning around,
I’m up and you’re down.
We’re spinning around,
We’re upside down.

You can make me feel alive with a single word.
You can make this feeling right with a single word.

We’re spinning around,
I’m up and you’re down.
We’re spinning around,
We’re upside down (x2)

We’re spinning around,
(You can make me feel alive)
I’m up and you’re down.
(With a single word).
We’re spinning around,
(You can make this feeling right),
We’re upside down.
(With a single word).
Track Name: Paris and Rome
I’ve never been to Paris or Rome,
I don’t rely on a cellular phone.
If I wanna sit on this corner,
Watching people go by,
Then tell me why,
My girlfriend don’t respect me,
For being who I am.

I’ve never wanted to borrow a car
I have no money just this stool at the bar
If I wanna lie in my bedroom watching movies all day
Then tell me why,
My parents don’t respect me,
Then tell me why,
My girlfriend don’t respect me,
For being who I am. (x3)

Is he the son who’s disappointing his old man?
After all they’ve ever been through.
(After all we’ve ever been though)
You think we might agree to
(You think we would agree to)
Understand
Just being who I am.


For being who I am.
Is he the son who’s disappointing his old man?
After all they’ve ever been through.
(After all we’ve ever been though)
You think we might agree to,
(You think we would agree to)
Understand.
Just being who I am (x2).

I’ve never been to Paris or Rome,
I don’t rely on a cellular phone.
If I wanna sit on this corner,
Watching people go by,
Then tell me why,
My girlfriend don’t respect me,
For being who I am.

On this corner watching people go by.
For being who I am.
In my bedroom watching movies all day
For being who I am.
On this corner watching people go by.
For being who I am.
In my bedroom watching movies all day (fade out).
Track Name: For Forever
Let me be there
In the morning
And be your bad mood
For the day
Forever
For forever and a day

Let me warm you,
By my fire.
Let me give to you,
My soul.
Forever,
For forever and a day.
Yeah.

Just when hope it seems,
May leave you at some time,
But I won’t.

And as the seasons change,
And move along,
Well, I won’t.

I’ll be there to say eternally,
I’m yours and you’re mine.



I just want you,
To be normal,
Not some guy on TV.

I just want you to hold tight,
In the middle of the night,
For my love (x4).

Just when hope it seems,
May leave you at some time,
But I won’t.

And as the seasons change,
And move along,
Well, I won’t.

I’ll be there to say eternally,
I’m wrong, and you’re right.
I’m there to say eternally,
I’m yours and you’re mine.

For ever, forever and a day (x2)
Love, love, love, love (x6)
Track Name: I Needed To
When you said that I broke your heart,
I didn’t know you fell apart,
When I walked away.
And that’s the price you paid.
I should have stayed.

No need to be scared now
Because now’s the time and the place to take it slow.
No need to be scared now

You never meant to leave me
I never meant to leave you
I didn’t want to hide
I needed to.

You never meant to leave me,
I never meant to leave you,
I didn’t want to hide,
I needed to.

What we need is to reconnect,
To lay it down, to show respect,
We are wasting time.
And that’s the price we pay,
To feel this way.
No need to be scared now.
Because now’s the time and the place to take it slow.
No need to be scared now.

You never meant to leave me,
I never meant to leave you,
I didn’t want to hide,
I needed to.

You never meant to hurt me,
I never meant to hurt,
I didn’t want to hide,
I needed to.

No need to be scared now.
(You never meant to leave me.)
Because now’s the time and the place to take it slow.
No need to be scared now.
(You never meant to hurt me.)

No need to be scared now.
Track Name: Wind Blows
Maybe that’s why wind blows,
Maybe that’s why our love grows.
With every beat of your heart,
You had me right from the start.

We could give in and not keep our word.
We might love everything.
Now we are rich, but when we were poor,
Our love meant something.

Maybe that’s why wind blows,
Maybe that’s why our love grows.
With every beat of your heart,
You had me right from the start.

Ooh ba bah dah.
With your love beneath me,
Each day I keep walking on.
Ooh ba bah dah.
With your love beneath me,
Each day I keep walking on.

Memories fade as our life goes on,
But one thing will never change.
Our love started small and now through it all,
You’re the wind underneath my embrace

Maybe that’s why wind blows,
Maybe that’s why our love grows.
With every beat of your heart,
You had me right from the start.

And that’s why rain flows.
And that’s why the stars glow.
With every year by your side,
This is one fantastic ride.
And that’s why wind blows.

With your love beneath me,
Each day I keep walking on.
Ooh ba bah dah.
With your love beneath me,
Each day I keep walking on.

Ba bah dah.
With your love beneath me,
Each day I keep walking on.
Track Name: Gone Baby
You’re gone baby but God how I miss you
How can we carry on? (gone)
‘Cause if this is how it’s got to be then
With you I don’t
With you I don’t belong.

(With you I don’t belong,
Gone)

I tried to give you my ring, I tried
But then you said that you won’t be denied
I guess we’re out of time.
Why do I lose and you win, oh why?
I don’t understand the silence in your eyes
This is my goodbye.

You’re gone baby but God how I miss you
How can we carry on? (gone)
‘Cause if this is how it’s got to be then
With you I don’t
With you I don’t belong.
You’re gone
With you I don’t belong,
You’re gone.

I tried but I can’t change a thing this time
I want to be your one and only guy
But you won’t even try
You take more than you give, that’s why
I need to turn my back on this lullaby
This broken lullaby.

You’re gone, baby but God how I miss you
How can we carry on? (gone)
‘Cause if this is how it’s got to be then
With you I don’t
With you I don’t belong.
You’re gone, baby but God how I miss you
How can we carry on? (gone)
‘Cause if this is how it’s got to be then
With you I don’t
With you I don’t belong.


You’re gone
With you I don’t belong,
You’re gone.
You’re gone.
Gone.
Track Name: Caring
Does it feel right in the morning?
You don’t have to go to work ‘cause unemployment’s gone berserk.
And I wonder why you look at me.
It never used to be like this.

I hear voices talking on the news,
Saying someone’s taken their life ‘cause they couldn’t pay the bills.
And I wonder why it has to be.
It never used to be like this.
We never used to be like this.

All the people, they will fall,
If they make the wrong decisions.
And I’m watching you all,
And I notice you’re not caring.

All these choice of my government,
Put the money in the front and the people far behind.
And I wonder what will have to change.
It never used to be like this.
We never used to be like this.

All the people, they will fall,
If they make the wrong decisions.
And I’m watching you all,
And I noticed you’re not caring.

Whoa, oh, oh.
Whoa, oh, oh.

I hear voices talking on the news,
Saying someone’s taken their life ‘cause they couldn’t pay the bills.
And I wonder why it has to be.
It never used to be like this.
We never used to be like this.
We never used to be like this.

Whoa, oh, oh.
Whoa, oh, oh.

All the people, they will fall,
If they make the wrong decisions.
And I’m watching you all,
And I notice you’re not caring.
Track Name: You're Perfect
I’m in love with you every day
You’re like sunshine, baby,
You’re perfect.

I’m here no matter what you say
Yes, in our life, baby,
You’re perfect.


Please hold me in your arms,
I know that you want me.
So please hold me in your arms,
I know that you need me.

So who knows, if tonight,
It might not be complicated.
And who knows, if I’m right,
It’ll light our love through the ages.
Please hold me in your arms tonight.
Here tonight.

I’m so happy with what we’ve made,
But without you, baby, it’s worthless.
I gave it up just to walk this way,
It’s about you, baby, you’re worth it.


Please hold me in your arms,
I know that you want me.
So please hold me in your arms,
I know that you need me.

So who knows, if tonight,
It might not be complicated.
And who knows, if I’m right,
It’ll light our love through the ages.
Please hold me in your arms tonight.
Here tonight.

Roaring love
Soaring love
Fiery love
Adoring love

Track Name: Forevermore
Will you be all mine,
Til the end of time?
Forevermore

You said that you would change,
And that we’d be forever.
You said don’t be afraid,
And that we’d last forevermore.
Forevermore.
You said we’d be forevermore.

When did you let go?
How was I to know?

You said you’d lost your way,
Well, that was last September.
You said it’ll be ok,
Well that we’d last forevermore.
Forevermore,
You said we’d be forevermore.
Forevermore,
You said we’d be forevermore.

If I save you one more time,
Will you be mine?
If I love you one more time,
Will you be mine?

What takes you away?
What will make you stay?
Forevermore.
You said that’s not the way,
And that we’ll be together.
You said we’ll have it made,
And that we’d last forevermore.
Forevermore,
You said we’d be forevermore. (x3)

If I save you one more time,
Will you be mine?
If I love you one more time,
Will you be mine?
X 2

Will you be mine?
You said we’d be forevermore
