Track Name: HEADLINES
Careful what you say, you might just
let me know a little too much about you
Start off with the big reveal
then put up your guard and back up like I'm coming for you
But it's me who's on strings
You pull me up and 'round
then let me crash back down
Trust me with your secrets
I'm holding onto every word spilled

Your eyes are so blue
but they're just reflecting pools
Be whatever I need
'til I believe that all I see is really true
Keep me locked in your smile
It feels like it's meant for me alone
Now reason breaks through
and I'm starting to see you

Careful what you say
A little too much
You might be
letting me in too deep

You're all headlines and covers
I won't be another fan
Keep your head rising upward
you don't need an extra hand
You'll never find love
if you can't give more
than headlines & covers
of who you really are
Do you, do you, do you know who you really are?

I'm not here to break your heart
Not even interested in looking for the start
of some torrid love affair
You get enough of flirty eyes & flipping hair
So put away that shield now
I know it's too heavy & keeps weighing you down

I'm not asking for the world
Only a little space in yours
Feed me lines that taste so good
But it will never be enough
If I spend my time waiting
Filling up on hope and still feeling empty

You're all headlines and covers
I won't be another fan
Keep your head rising upward
you don't need an extra hand
You'll never find love
if you can't give more
than headlines & covers

You're all headlines and covers
won't be a fan
Keep your head rising upward
no extra hand
You'll never find love
if you can't give more
than headlines & covers
of who you really are
Track Name: FOG
Wake to the cold
hear my heart quickly beating
I can feel you in the dark quietly
watching me breathe

Keeping secrets
in your bottle
think I won't notice the smell
Think I won't notice your words are so thick
and I know you won't notice me melt

Into the fear now
It's hard to know when you lie
When will the sleeping beast awake
you never put it in a cage
Next time you won't beat it
Next time you could die

If you find your way home
happy arms may welcome you
but I will still be waiting for the fall
Where the fog's so heavy
I can't see beyond the gray
and promises are nothing but empty

The damage is silent
I keep it pushed deep inside
Maybe I could soon forget this night
if I just close my eyes

Keeping secrets
in your bottle
think I won't notice the smell
Think I won't notice all of the sadness
and I know you won't notice me melt

If you find your way home
happy arms may welcome you
but I will still be waiting for the fall
Where the fog's so heavy
I can't beyond the gray
and promises are nothing but empty

Heaven isn't far away
and I do hope you stay
but I won't be afraid
I won't be afraid
Track Name: GLOW
You are the sun
I am the moon
I only glow when I'm next to you
Waves crash below me
with you I'm strong
The world keeps on turning
I'm where I belong

I saw it coming
cracks in the light
too much space between us
too tired to fight
I gave everything to love
and look what it cost
the sea doesn't pull
and now I'm just lost
How could you believe I'd go on shining
if you leave me alone

Even though you'll be okay
I won't be the same
Baby, you know that even though
you'll be okay
I'll never be the same

'Cause I am the moon
and you are the sun
Constantly in shadow
whenever you're gone

Too much time spent
with eyes wide open in your light
they're burning raw
and peeling layers cloud my sight
No matter the time away
I can feel your heat
the tears they burn my face
and you're the only thing I see

Even though you'll be okay
I won't be the same
Baby, you know that even though
you'll be okay
I'll never be the same, the same, the same, the same, the same
Even though you will be alright
Baby, how can I ever hope
to live without your light
Even though you will be okay
will I ever be the same?

Baby, you know
Baby, you know
without you I will never glow
Track Name: ZOMBIES
Ear to the ground
Dirt in my mouth
Far below
Creaking bones start to stir
A little more, a little more, a little more
Stretched out over our grave
Waiting for it to raise

It happened all at once
A sudden exodus and you're gone
And in this solitude
I've been dragging wasted limbs around
Oh, the need pulls me along
The constant ache to find it
To hear the rush of blood
To feel the breath in my lungs

I don't need my heart to beat
To know that it's for you I'll be
No matter what the experts say
Zombies are alive, aren't they?
I don't need my heart to beat
To know that it's for you I...

Is it a question of time or a delusion of my mind?
I can see the earth is moving
And pieces of what used to be are still undone
To hear the rush of blood
To feel the breath in my lungs

I don't need my heart to beat
To know that it's for you I'll be
No matter what the experts say
Zombies are alive, aren't they?
I don't need my heart to beat
To know that it's for you I'll be
No matter what the experts say
Zombies are alive, aren't they?
Zombies are alive, aren't they?
Zombies are alive, aren't they?
Zombies are alive, aren't they?
Zombies are alive....

I am alive...
Track Name: HAPPINESS
On the road to Happiness
I lost my heart, it's such a mess
Without the cause, I'm not sure where I've been
On the road to Happiness
I put my eggs in just one nest and
Lost it all when they were found
Snatched away by someone's hand
I lost the reason for the day
No smile when I awake
On the road to Happiness
On the road to Happiness
