Track Name: iPromise.com
"I PROMISE.COM"

Tear strained tissues, please don't get me started
Notebooks spiral out of control
One can only sit back. Take a deep breath and ask:
"What the hell was going through your mind?"
(Your mind. You have lost your mind)

Tell me, how did we get here?
It seems strange, but lady luck was on my side
The tide is rising, you hide from nothing
With eyes as wide as mine, thats gotta mean something

(I'm still not where I wanna be). You can cry all you like
Don't take the long way home

You set up a site called "I Promise.Com"
I'll compromise with whatever you have to say
Set your sights on somebody new
(I cant cause she's gone. Already borrowed and blue)
Take some time for it to settle then move on
When its all gone, you'll never know
Time passed by,
Which direction do you wanna go?

To be honest frankly,
I'd rather regret doing something than doing nothing at all
(Hey man! What do you want?!)
Start from the top
Speak your way out, somehow
For the record I will get this straight
Just so you know
I'm not here for much longer
I wanna hear you say
"Don't take too long, I'll give it away"

Stop praying and start saying "START SAYING!"
To yourself, "I'm better than that"

Success is a journey, not a destination
So stop running...

But you're tossing away, my pride.
Can't you see its my loss (at what cost)
Cause you know I'm always, right here if you want me
"I'm right here if you want me"

You set up a site called "I Promise.Com"
I'll compromise with whatever you have to say
Set your sights on somebody new
(I cant cause she's gone. Already borrowed and blue)
Take some time for it to settle then move on
When its all gone, you'll never know (Oh!)

Time just passed you by.
Bye, bye
(Cut the corners, it wont take too long)
This is my last goodbye…
Track Name: Never Say Never
"NEVER SAY NEVER"

Welcome naysayers of land far and wide
Listen up, eyes this way
A round of applause for the people that never say never!

I guess it's always been the same
It's there way or the highway. (Oh) I've never been the one to follow.
So go and see the world.

If misunderstood is my calling, I'll ride the wave till I'm falling
A statue climb of this stature takes one day at a time…
(Never say, never die)

Did patience blow all your chances?
I wonder what these answers are
I'm still learning what I've gotta say
I don't know what I want, was this all my fault?
Never say never
=
Its not the same. Without frustration and desire burning in my eyes
Fire one target. Don't tell me to give up, forgive and forget (Hell yeah, fuck yeah!)

I can't get up, still I'm moving too fast
I take the shot cause I know that it won't last
The thought of failing
Lets just deal with this moment, one step at a time…

Did patience blow all your chances?
I wonder what these answers are
I'm still learning what I've gotta say
I don't know what I want, was this all my fault?
Never say never

Never say never die, I wont ever sleep (x2)
Never say never die, we won't ever sleep

Who has got my back? (When it fades to black)
Have you got my back?
I am counting on you (to pull me through)

I choose my fate, no one else. I've learnt to not ask for help
This pain remedy will fade out eventually

Did patience blow all your chances?
I wonder what these answers are
I'm still learning what I've gotta say
I don't know what I want, so this is all my fault
Never say never

Lets just deal with this moment,
A round of applause for the people that never say never
Track Name: Stuck On You
"STUCK ON YOU"

Honestly, this time of year
Should never happen without you near
Wish you were here
(Every day, every night)

You're as bright as the starlight shining our tree
You had me baby, at hello
(Make up's made for going wrong)
Still so young and yet, I wont forget our secrets...

You are the reason why, I can and can't sleep at night
SMS or call me, don't worry
Everything will be fine

"I've been listening to fools
They can't help me to prove
What you want me to
Stuck On You"

You take my breath away
Won't need it for today
What else can I say?

She's the prettiest girl. I'm in over my head
If I stare at her smile, just for a while
(I wont be able to resist those poison lips)
Wrestle me still. I know that you will
Cause I'm restless calm and you're smooth sails (out to sea)

You are the reason why, I can and can't sleep at night
(I'm missing you kissing me)
Goodnight, goodnight
Everything will be fine, it's alright
(You're on my mind)

"I've been listening to fools
They can't help me to prove
What you want me to
Stuck On You"

Just say those 3 words, I'm dying to know (what you have to say)
Okay, you're the spark I'm looking for
Forever now, never new, forever more

You take my breath away
Won't need it for today
What else can I say?

"I've been listening to fools
They can't help me to prove
What you want me to
Stuck On You"

Okay, you're the spark I'm looking for
Forever now, never new, forever more
What else can I say?
Track Name: Last Chance To Survive
"LAST CHANCE TO SURVIVE"

It's a common thing that only happens when you sing, out loud
To those who bare to change,
You seem to make them re-arrange (What is good and bad)
It takes some time for it to pack up and then settle down
(Now) that love is out and old. I swear that story has been told

And I, wanna make this feel alright
What would happen, if something that I didn't do was right?


"I wanna see what's left alive
So I can choose whether to die.
Tonight it's my last chance to survive"

Think back, think back
To when times were civil. Simple
Sit back, relax and relapse

(Can't expect to)
I can't expect to change the world if I'm older
(Off my shoulders)
But if you just take the weight off my shoulders

"I wanna see what's left alive
So I can choose whether to die.
Tonight it's my last chance to survive"

So whats next for a train wreck like me?
Too bold, too proud to ever believe
Are you afraid of who you'd become?

"I wanna see what's left alive
So I can choose whether to die.
Tonight it's my last chance to survive"
(If I decide not to revive)

"We're going back to basics baby,
Start from the top cause this all we've got
We're going back to basics baby" x2
Track Name: I = You + Everyone
"i = you + everyone"

Kids say, they will never understand
The power, of knowing what to comprehend

Who has a question? (x2)
Inside of no one (x2)
That's why they all leave (x2)
Cause nothing can be done

Lateness is the lamest excuse that they use
Teach us to reach out to you

Are you telling me? Are you telling her?
Are you telling me, because you cant go on
So long, dismissed. You're gone
(What are you selling. Who are you telling?)

One day, you'll say you're sorry
One day, you'll never know what I had to go through
Today's a completely different story
Two days gone, and what I have done?
This is not the road I paved for myself
Somewhere along the line, I lost my way and my mind
Guess we'll never know cause I'm just to blind to see

That him + you = me
(Face it, I'm in pain. Just give me one more taste, baby)
Its too bad, that you're not here. You're not hearing me.
Don't tell me maybe, but I believe that this is over

Are you telling me? Are you telling her?
Are you telling me, because you cant go on
So long, dismissed. You're gone
(What are you selling. Who are you telling?)

Its the first time you've noticed
Since we've been through this
Its too bad that you're growing up

I know that its hurting (once you go)
It feels right to keep running (no means no)
Anytime soon now.
You'll be up for air (x2)

I know that its hurting (once you go)
It feels right to keep running (no means no)
Well anytime soon now, you'll be up for air

Don't you know just how to love someone
It cant be taught so go and have some fun
You sure do have a nerve to hit and run
Don't you know, oh
You've gotta let this go. Let this go

Are you telling me? Are you telling her?
Are you telling me, because you cant go on
So long, dismissed. You're gone (you're gone)
(What are you selling. Who are you telling?)

Are you telling me or are you telling her?
Who are you telling? What are you selling?
Are you telling me or are you telling her?
(First time you've noticed, since we've been through this.
It's too bad that you're growing up)
Track Name: SMS In A Bottle
"SMS In A Bottle"

Breathe in deeply, the palm trees breeze.
Makes me weak at the knees, can you taste serenity in the air?
(We don't need phones, so throw them away)
"How about an SMS?"
No one needs to know we're on holidays

Someday, somewhere
I'll have you to thank for this view
I wish the sun would stare right back at you, too
Help me get back on my way
Something tells me I can't escape
We're leaving, say whatever you are feeling


Seeing is believing. A paradise to call my home sweet home.
So who am I still looking for?
It's me. Am I meant to be asleep?
Its been fun girl from Point A to B
The sandy shore swept us out to sea (Somebody save me)
Will destiny, discover a new side of me?

Someday, somewhere
I'll have you to thank for this view
I wish the sun would stare right back at you, too
Help me get back on my way
Something tells me I can't escape
We're leaving, say whatever you are feeling

(Hold on heavy heart. Our day is coming)
What you're proving is proof enough,
Cause when the going gets tough (the tough gets going)
What you're proving is proof enough,
So when it all adds up, the tough gets going

We didn't start the fire, it was always burning
Since the world's been turning
We didn't start the fire,
No we didn't light it, though we tried to fight it

Someday (someday), somewhere (somewhere),
I'll have you to thank for this view
I wish the sun would stare right back at you, too
Help me get back on my way
Something tells me I can't erase, these feelings.
Whatever you want I'll say baby,
(Just believe me)
Let's stay another day and fade away
Track Name: Fingers Crossed, This Won't Hurt A Bit
"FINGERS CROSSED, THIS WON'T HURT A BIT"

All stops go somewhere
I'm still waiting around, I must be heading nowhere
Keep telling yourself you'll be alright, alright
(No one can take this away)
This ain't the bus I've been waiting for

Don't let it out (x2) How many times have I said these words?
Don't let me down (x2) You'll get what you deserve
Don't let it out (x2) When the whole world is counting on you
What do you do? What do you do?

(These are tough times for you and I)
I promise I wont take too much of your time
Bet your bottom dollar its my last dime
I cant say sorry for you and I

What and why are we still fighting for?
Hear me roar, I won't fall
Before I go, just so you know
You've done your part, so let me do mine

Don't let it out (x2) How many times have I said these words?
Don't let me down (x2) You'll get what you deserve
Don't let it out (x2) Sorry but I've lost all control, whoa

What path takes me to paradise?
A yellow brick road? (I wanna know)
Hold your peace in pieces,
Save your breath (and count to three)

So lets go (x4)

I wanna be a mystery
I can not see, its blinding me
This wont be, the last time you, hear from me

Don't let it out (x2),
What do you do when you've lost self control. What would you know?
I've gotta go home...

Don't let it out (x2) How many times have I said these words?
Don't let me down (x2) You'll get what you deserve
Don't let it out (x2) Sorry but I've lost all control, whoa

Hold your breath to death and count to three.
I wanna be a mystery,
I can not see what is in front of me

Don't let it out,
When the whole world is counting on you………………………
……………………………………………….
"…I can't go on without you"

We went around the world to find you. To find you!

"Who defines you??"
