Track Name: Sippin
You come again and I feel, I feel like I'm falling falling falling for you again. If there was ever a moment that I did'nt know what to do It's right now.
I hear my mind repeating those words every line.
If there was ever a doubt in my heart about what I'd do when I saw you. And then with a smile I believe every line you tell me.
Helplessly I'm Sipping on your love.
Track Name: Boxes
Yellow boxes and guiding lines tell me where to go
The little red man says wait your turn It's someone elses time to move
Life mapped out before us, school college uni job then wife
Thats why I wanna make some curves, they make come alive

So what do we do ?
What do we do ?

Lets get rid of the boxes forget the lines
I don't really need your arrows guiding me through my life
Gather all my players create a symphony
Let's adnce dance dance dance dance dance till we're free.
Track Name: Rain Pour Down
I'm just walking down this long and dusty road
This open space and darkness is all I know
The only thing that gets me throuhg the night
Is knowing that you'll be there waiting at the end of the line.

So let the rain pour down on me
And when the sky turns to grey I'm on my knees
So let the rain pour down on me
And when my eyes fill up with water
Your all I need.
Track Name: Karma
Bust out of school with a smile hrought he park
Spring thime don't walk hiome in the dark but he never knew it was his time
He only crossed your border line

Young blood flows like mothers tears
Been in this world for just 15 years and you made a call told your crew
Now your someone to look up to

Karma, don't you worry take your time
Karma, now you've gone and crossed the line
Karma, that's what you get for a life of grime
You'll hear knock on your door
She's coming to get you
Track Name: Shine
It's all about the peace and love and trying to get it right
As I go round the wheel of love
It akes for a busy life
Spread a little of your love
Let it reach out to someone who may need your touch, just give it up
Your only using half your heart if It's just for pumping blood

If I we're drowning would'nt you be there
Throw me a float let's get outta here
Words are okay you gotta show you care or my everything counts for nothing

Remove the shade so I can see
I wanna know who's loving me
How will Iknow your there and that you care for me
So shine so I can see I wanna know who's loving me
I wanna fell what you fell so make it real to me
Just let your love come down.

There's something bout the feel of love that keep me coming back
There's never 1 2 3 in love your moving forward then your counting back
I got a lot to learn, all about love and all It's twists and turns
Don't want another burn no way.

It's hard to have someone and know It's real
Hard to love them and know the deal
It's about trust do you own that skill ?
It's evrything, my everything

Let it fall on my just like rain
Every emotoin you felt today
You never know maybe I felt the same
OO talk to me and let me see.
Track Name: Night Reign
Colder and colder it gets
There's no shelter from what I really need to know
Look over my shoulder into the past, fantasies that wern't mine but I hold the stills left behind.
Could you tell him he is older now now
Could you tell him he don't have to go now
Can you show him how to love himslf now

The rain and night flames
It never leaves me alone
It's always there when I fall
Saying baby baby baby come home
Remember all thoses It's gonna be okay's
Why didn't you love

Greater and greater the need to see
So I can protect the boy before he spoils completely
It;s a challenge when everythign you do seems impossible
Your fucked up mind lies to you lies to you

Can tell him he is older no now
Can tell he don't have to cry now
What good do tears do anyway now

The rain and night flames
It never leaves me alone
It's always there when I fall
Saying baby baby baby come home
Remember all thoses It's gonna be okay's
Why didn't you love
Track Name: Lonely
There's so many things I have to think about, have to think about coz they wont be left out
Messing with my being and my summer smile, my sun rays I feel once in a while
I know that I'm differnt and this should make me proud shoul make me wanna celebrate and laugh out loud but all it does is bring me down

But you don't owe me a thing
Not nearly as mucha s I owe myself
No you don't owe me a thing
I'd be a fool to be expecting

I get so lonely put somethig on me babe
Make it okay and warm my heart again
I get so lonely put something on me babe
Won't you just hold me, hold me yeh

Buried in the corners the corners of my mind in small boxes covered up lies
Soaked in Gin gasping for life waiting for a chance to have another try
Things are so differnt so much has cahnged so why do my memories keep me in chains
Telling tales of yesterday

But you don't owe me a thing
Not nearly as mucha s I owe myself
No you don't owe me a thing
I'd be a fool to be expecting

I get so lonely put somethig on me babe
Make it okay and warm my heart again
I get so lonely put something on me babe
Won't you just hold me, hold me yeh.
Track Name: Time For Love
This is unsafe I could fall deeper
I could spen my days just thinking baby
There's no other way to do this
Than to give you my all It's time to prove it prove it yeh

Over and over again we talk the same thing
Your job your job is on your brain on your lips
Tell me now tell it tell it again we will fina a way
And all this time we spent togeher ain't in vain

What time is there for love, all your tme is taken up
Every second every minute I wonder why your not with me
What time is there for love you never never put it forst or second or third.
