Track Name: Real Love
REAL LOVE

Don’t wanna play those games anymore
I won’t be the same as before
It’s just a question of principal,
In love you’re impossible
More than insincere - Ephemeral...

I know what’s on your mind silly
I know it’s all but lies you’re telling me
Don’t wanna waste more time
It’s physical, impaired and impersonal
I deserve a love much better - Ephemeral...

It’s so bitter, bitter, bitter, bitter sweet baby

Chorus:
You better take your things and go
Cuz I think you oughta know
I want it real, real, real, real love
Well your story’s getting old
And my body’s getting cold
I want it real, real, real, real love

No compromising, no obedience
No sympathizing, no convenience
I’m looking for so much more
It’s natural to crave the incredible
I’ll be craving it forever - Ephemeral...

So take your hat and coat, funny
How love comes and goes, wouldn’t you agree?
Now this station’s closed
Last stop, get me off, it’s terminal
Hear me loud and clear, it’s over! - Ephemeral...

Oh! It’s so bitter, bitter, bitter, bitter sweet baby
Don’t you feed me fun
Won’t you gimme some, gimme some real love

Chorus

I don’t want that taste no more, no!

Chorus

My baby baby better gimme some of that real love
Baby baby baby won’t you gimme some, gimme some
Love me baby love me, baby don’t you feed me fun
Won’t you gimme some, gimme some!
Track Name: Yer Goin' Down
YER GOIN’ DOWN

Nobody gets in my way
Nobody holds me back
Nobody talks me into things
Or takes me off my track
You think you’ll be the first?
Well you forgot I never lose
You think you pose a threat to me?
Well baby I’ve got news…

Chorus:
Ready or not just gimme what you got
You can take your best shot
But I’ll take you out and knock you down

Just when you think you’ve got me beat
Well baby think again
I don’t hear any ringing bells
Or counting off to ten
You pull out all your punches
Try and pin me to the ropes
You think you stand a chance with me
Well baby it’s no hope, so…

Chorus

I’m hungry and determined
Of the likes you’ve never seen
Inside this little lady is one finely tuned machine
I’ll cut you down to size
And then I’ll sting you like a bee
I’ve got the best of Louis, Frazier, Leonard, and Ali

I’m dodging every left and right
And uppercut you throw
I’ll have you out of breath
Before my first and only blow
And baby if you’re thinkin' ‘bout
Coming back for more
I recommend you think again
And stay down on the floor

Chorus

Come on now give it to me!
Ok now, you better listen, listen now

You thought I’d go down easy
Thought I’d crumble to the ground
You never thought I’d make it past
The first or second round
Some minor bumps and bruises
But I barely made a sound
Oh…baby, baby yer goin’ down!

I’m hungry and determined
Of the likes you’ve never seen
Inside this little lady is one finely tuned machine
I’ll cut you down to size
And then I’ll sting you like a bee
I’ve got the best of Louis, Frazier, Leonard, and Ali

No Time for hesitation
I’m a lady on the move
No time for explanations
I’ve got nothing left to prove
So if you plan to mess with me
Or try to slow me down
I’ll chew you up and spit you out
And leave you on the ground

Oh yeah... Cuz yer goin’ down baby
Alright take it away boys!
Track Name: Best I Can
BEST I CAN

I’ve been looking through my life
I’ve been digging deep inside
And thinkin’ 'bout what I’ve done
I’ve been hurtful and unfair
But it’s not like I don’t care
I never meant to hurt no-one

And it may be too soon to know what’s yet to come
And I may be too late to heal the damage done

Chorus:
So if I hurt you so, I want you to know
I’m learning as I go along, sorry if I get it wrong
Hope you understand...
And if I made you cry, tore you up inside
Look into my sorry eyes, tell me that you realize
Understand, I do the best that I can

Well I know the road was long
And I know how you stayed strong
Oh baby what you lived through
I was selfish and unwise
And it eats me up inside
To see the scars that I left you

And it may be too soon to let yourself forgive
And I may be too late to give what’s left to give

Chorus

I’ve been in and out of love
But when push comes to shove
I’d never change what I’ve done...

Chorus
Track Name: Drive
DRIVE

Woke up this morning, hard to know why
You never really did what you set out to do
Lost sight of the plan and days just go by,
And the world’s never ever gonna slow down for you

So why keep wondering and waiting, always hesitating,
Drivin’ yourself crazy?
Look at how you make it over complicated
You’re losing your mind

Chorus:
Wherever you go it’s a very long road
You think you’re by yourself but you’re never alone
(I’ll be here on the passenger side)
Bright headlights will come out of the night
Glaring in your eyes and impairing your sight
(Keep your hands on the wheel and drive)
I’ll be here on the passenger side

With every new day comes new distractions
So just stick to the plan whatever you do
And I’ll be around to help you put it into action
Still what it comes down to is all up to you

Chorus

You’re not seeing clearly
You’re not thinking straight
It’s time to open your eyes
You’ve got all the answers
Trust in the hands of fate
The failure is the one who never tries…

Chorus
Track Name: Falling
FALLING

All alone this morning
Staring at the ceiling, you realize
You’re falling
And if you’re feeling something
That you can’t describe in simple words
You’re falling

Chorus:
It’s hard to know why - So don’t try...
You’ll only lose your mind
It’s hard to describe what’s inside
But you’ll make it through alright

So if your hands are trembling
And no words are spoken
You can’t deny you’re falling
And if you’re scared of ending
What you don’t yet know where to begin
You’re falling

Chorus:
Don’t know why - So don’t try...
You’ll only lose your mind
Cuz in time you’ll find
You’ll make it through alright

All alone this morning
Staring at the ceiling, you realize
You’re falling
And if I take it all in
I can see that I’m in trouble now
Falling
Track Name: Watcha Doing to Me
WHATCHA DOING TO ME

Hey babe, what do you say?
You look so fine - I’m ready and I’m willing
Hey babe, what are you doing to me?
Hey babe, what do you say?
The pleasure’s all mine but the waiting is killing
Hey babe, what are you doing to me?

You’re like a drug - intoxicating
You’re making me play your crazy games
And every move’s so stimulating
You had me going before I came

Chorus:
Whatcha doing to me? Whatcha doing to me?
Whatcha doing to me? Look what you’re doing to me

Insane, this growing pain needs your touch
And a bit of your attention
Hey babe, what are you doing to me?
I said no way you’re getting away!
It’s down to the wire, can you feel the tension?
Hey babe, what are you doing to me?

And like a child with no restrictions
You’re making me lose all self control
Cuz every ounce of inhibition
Is on its way right out the door

Chorus

Losing my sight, losing my sense
Losing myself to you boy
Losing my sight, losing my sense
Losing myself to you
Losing myself to you boy, losing myself to you
Losing myself to you boy, losing myself to you

Chorus
Track Name: What Are We Waiting For
WHAT ARE WE WAITING FOR

I tell you I’m not one
To ruffle any feathers
But the state of our life’s
Seen a change in the weather
And it’s eating us alive now
If you know what I mean

We gotta wake up or else
It won’t get any better
Gotta shake up the love
We’re all in it together
Gotta open up our eyes now
And we gotta believe

Cause when the driving seemed clear
On the road up ahead
We took a wrong turn instead

Chorus:
We gotta get back, back on track
Cause every second we wait’s
Another second too late
We gotta get back,
What are we waiting for?
Right back, back on track
We gotta give it all we got
Baby ready or not
We gotta get back
What are we waiting for?

There’s no magical cure
No miracle potion
Gotta move into gear
Put everything in motion
There’s a change coming on love
Do you see what I see?

There’s a peace train coming to town
Do you feel it?
Something big’s going down
I believe it
Let the winds of change
Come and set us free

So much poverty, war, disease and pollution
It’s right about time for a love revolution…

Chorus

Wake up the love, shake up the love
Wake up the love, what are we waiting for?

So if you think it’s not the season
And you think there’s no good reason
You better take a look, read a book,
See why everybody’s shook up
And if you think it doesn’t matter
Well your outlook couldn’t be sadder now
You gotta get a grip, take a sip, double dip,
Baby step up! Come on!

What are we waiting for?
It’s your time to rise and shine

Yeah, get back yeah, what are we waiting for?
I said, it’s right here right now
What are we waiting for?

I said we gotta get back yeah
Come on, what are we waiting for?
Track Name: Say What You Want
SAY WHAT YOU WANT

Don’t you give me those eyes
Or point your finger in my face
Don’t try to put me in my place
Don’t be raising your voice
And don’t be pushing around your weight
Don’t say you’re sorry, it’s too late

Chorus:
It don’t matter
Tell ’em all your lies
It’s gonna come back around
Say what you want
It don’t matter
They’ll see it in your eyes
And we all know what went down
Say what you want

You think you make me feel small
When you put your fist through the wall
You think you turn me upside down
You think you’re giving me a scare
Every time you scream and you swear
You think you’ll live to see me break down

But I’m done with the games
And I’m through with the lies
Had enough of your pain
And the tears that I cried
Oh! I tell ya…

Chorus

Say what you want, say what you’ll say
Just stay the hell away
Say what you want, say what you’ll say
Just stay the hell away from me
Track Name: Beyond Words
BEYOND WORDS

You, the center of my force
And you, my never ending source
You, the passion in your eyes
Reminds me I’m alive
And fills me up inside

Chorus:
I searched my soul, I tried to find
The right words to say
I wrote for days, I wracked my brain
But words aren’t the way
They only say so much and scratch the surface,
Miss the mark, so what’s the purpose
Of what I’d say anyway…?

You, my angel in disguise
And you, there is no otherwise
It’s all about you,
The shadow of my strength
The force behind my faith
And the love that lights the way

Chorus

You have given me so much
You have given me so much
A love beyond, a timeless bond
This may be all I’ve got to give, all I’ve got to...

Chorus
Track Name: Ready to Fly
READY TO FLY

Take me on a ride to the other side
Tell me that you love me
Let’s leave it all behind, together we will find
The meaning of the journey

I’m packed, I’m ready, leaving tonight
If I stay any longer I’ll be living a lie
Babe I’m ready, ready to fly

I’m packed, I’m ready, saying goodbye
If I ever stop dreaming I’ll be ready to die
Babe I’m ready, ready to fly
I’m ready to fly, ready to fly

High - The limit is the sky
Give it a try,
You’ve gotta learn to fly
Cuz I’ve got to leave it all behind
