Track Name: Life is Strange
Driving fast

Moving past the sunrise

You and I

Racing toward the big sky

Standing still

The scenery is changing

This is real

My senses slowly fading
Life is strange

Life is strange

Life is strange

There is no rhyme or reason

We're moving with the season
Drifting off

I like the way it feels

Lifting off

With both hands on the wheel
Life is strange

Life is strange

Life is strange

There is no rhyme or reason

We're moving with the season
I call your name

But I don't hear you answer

I'd do anything

Just to hear the laughter

Now it's gone

My senses slowly fading

You're left alone

One final breath I'm taking
Track Name: Head Under Water
Head Under Water- by Lovers and Poets

I traded my heart for a dream I walked away
I thought I could do what I want and have no one to blame
I'm swimming in thoughts about the better days
Only you can save me from this mess I made

Head under water, head under water
The further I get, the more I keep sinking down
Head under water, head under water
The deeper I get, the more I think I will drown

I find that love is like the raging sea
I only pray that you'll come back to me
In all my mistakes I learned what I'm living for
Whatever it takes to make it back to shore

Head under water, head under water
The further I get, the more I keep sinking down
Head under water, head under water
The deeper I get, the more I think I will drown

So SOS I do confess I hope you find me
I'll hold my breath until you lead me back to solid ground, safe and sound

Head under water, head under water
The further I get, the more I keep sinking down
Head under water, head under water
The deeper I get, the more I think I will drown
The further I get, the more I keep sinking down
The deeper I get, the more I think I will drown.
Track Name: The Things We Do for Love
The Things We Do For Love

Ain't no mountain high enough
To keep her from your love
Ain't no river wide enough
To sail into her arms

You step out in the pouring rain
You stand outside and call her name
The things we do for love
The things we do for love

You want to feel her breath and skin
But all you have is paper thin
She must know what she means to you
If she only knew the things we do

We do for love
The things we do for love

Traveling to the places that she's been
Looking for her memory in the wind
Hoping to find her
Now you're reading all her favorite books
Collecting all the pictures that she took
That will remind her

Of things we do for Love
The things we do for love

The only one you want to see
Is on the pages in between
You've got to get to her tonight
No matter if it's wrong or right

The things we do for love
The things we do for love

Traveling to the places that she's been
Looking for her memory in the wind
Hoping to find her
Now you're reading all her favorite books
Collecting all the pictures that she took
That will remind her

Of things we do for Love
The things we do for love
The things we do for love
The things we do for love
The things we do for love
The things we do for love
The things we do for love
The things we do for love
Track Name: I Keep Falling
You are a habit I can't break
You're an addiction I can't shake
A cigarette, a glass of wine
Another kiss, I cross the line
If you insist, well I won't mind

I keep fallin', fallin'
I keep fallin' For you

The day we met I saw the sign
Replayed in my head for all time
A simple smile, you said hello
The feeling burned into my soul
I knew I could not let you go

I keep fallin', fallin'
I keep fallin' For you, for you
I keep fallin', fallin'
I keep fallin' For you, for you

You keep letting me get closer, closer
Here we are, let's make the most of the love we have inside

I keep fallin', fallin'
I keep fallin' For you, for you
I keep fallin', fallin'
I keep fallin' For you, for you, for you.
Track Name: Only Bitterness Remains
Only Bitterness Remains

I can't believe what I'm saying
I never thought I'd feel this way
I can't breathe my heart is breaking
I never thought I'd see the day
Now that sweet has turned to sour

Instead of turning into gold
We lost something to behold
All my tears have washed away
Now only bitterness remains

All of the lies you've been faking
I'm on to all the games you play
This is a mess in the making
I should have known to turn away
From kisses that quickly turn to poison

Instead of turning into gold
We lost something to behold
All my tears have washed away
Now only bitterness remains

There's nowhere to run to
The life that I wanted seems so far
It's not that I don't love you
It's just that I don't know you anymore

Instead of turning into gold
We lost something to behold
All my tears have washed away
Now only bitterness remains

Instead of turning into gold
We lost something to behold
All my tears have washed away
Now only bitterness remains
Now only bitterness remains
Only bitterness remains
Track Name: Another Lonely Day Without You
Another Lonely Day Without You- by Lovers and Poets
I walk along the streets of clay
I take a breath I must be brave
But I can only think of you
I climb aboard another plane
My memories of our love will never fade
There is nothing I can do
Because I'm stranded in paradise
And you're so far away
It's another lonely day without you
I go outside into the sun
I should be happy, having fun
But in my heart there's only pain
The wind is blowing through the trees
I wanna sail across the sea
And return to your gentle rain
You see I'm stranded in paradise
And you're so far away
It's another lonely day without you
When I get back to my room
I'm exhausted through and through
I hear your message on the phone
I'm not leaving you behind
You're out of sight but not out of mind
Babe I'm coming home
I am stranded in paradise
And you're so far away
I said I'm lonely in paradise
And I don't wanna stay
I am stuck here in paradise
And I just have to say
I won't spend
Another lonely day without you
Track Name: Run
Run - by Lovers and Poets
Run to the edge of the world
Run and never look back
Forget words that they said
Never show them your hand
Lift your thoughts to the sky
Run and never ask why
The future's all you got left
Let it go to your head
So follow love
And leave your mind
Believe that we will
Win this time
You have to be strong
You've gotta move on
Cuz it don't matter
When you're trying to break through
Run to the edge of the earth
Run as far as you can
Run til day becomes dark
Never show them your heart
Lift your heart to the sky
See with your open eyes
Run to the edge of the world
Run and never look back
So follow love
And leave your mind
Believe that we will
Win this time
You have to be strong
You've gotta move on
Cuz it don't matter
When you're trying to break through

Track Name: Keep On Movin'
Saying goodbye to yesterday
A kiss for luck and I'm on my way
I thank you for the time we shared
But baby I'm afraid it'll never be the same

I turn out all the lights and close the door
Gotta find what I'm looking for in my soul
Gonna fly on over to the other side
Making my way across a sky of gold

I'm not looking over my shoulder
I'm not looking over my shoulder

Gotta keep on movin'
Gotta keep on movin'
Gotta keep on movin'
Gotta keep on movin'

The world keeps spinning round and round
Gotta take it all in before the clock runs down
Nothing's gonna keep me standing still
Gonna shake the hourglass before my time runs out

I'm not looking over my shoulder
I'm not looking over my shoulder

Gotta keep on movin'
Gotta keep on movin'
Gotta keep on movin'
Gotta keep on movin'

Destiny knows where my heart belongs
Now I awake to find that life goes on and on.

Gotta keep on movin'
Gotta keep on movin'
Gotta keep on movin'
Gotta keep on movin'

Lyrics from <a href="http://www.elyrics.net">eLyrics.net</a>
Track Name: Happy
Happy
How can I sleep at night
Knowing you’re in someone else’s arms
How can I help if I
Wish you were still holding me in the dark
And these tears I cry
I hope that they will finally wash away
All the hurt inside
I’ll cry tears of joy
Instead of tears of pain
Show me the way to be happy, happy.
Show me the way to be happy, happy.
I cannot lie
I still believe our love was meant to be
And deep inside
I know a world exists with you and me
And the sun won’t shine
The moon won’t rise and I can’t even breathe
When you’re far away it’s a winter’s day
Bring summer back to me
Show me the way to be happy, happy.
Show me the way to be happy, happy.
I cannot fake being happy, happy.
Show me the way to be happy, happy.
Maybe someday
You will see
I’m the one who can make you feel
That emotion I’m searching for
You won’t be looking anymore.
Show me the way to be happy, happy.
Show me the way to be happy, happy.
I cannot fake being happy, happy.
Show me the way to be happy, happy.
Track Name: Real Love
Half past one the music's loud
My head is spinning round and round
And the air is so hazy
I come and find you in the dark
Through rhythms of a sweet guitar
I'm feeling so crazy
We're just two strangers having fun
Looking for a place to run
I'll tell you a secret
You can take me home tonight
The rhythm's running through my mind
You've got me dreaming
I don't wanna say goodbye
Knowing that our time is up
I don't wanna say goodnight
Knowing you and I could find
Real love.
Half past three the crowd is gone
We found a spot where we belong
I don't wanna lose it
Silence leads to loneliness
So stay with me and take a chance
Let's keep on groovin'
I don't wanna say goodbye
Knowing that our time is up
I don't wanna say goodnight
Knowing you and I could find
Real love
Real love.
We fall into each other's arms
Awakened by a soft alarm
With the light of a new day
We're just two lovers having fun
Hiding from the morning sun
Now the darkness is far away
I don't wanna say goodbye
Knowing that our time is up
I don't wanna say goodnight
Knowing you and I could find
Real love
Real love.

Track Name: I Saw the Rain
You took my hand
Led me down to the river
So we could see the setting sun
You promised love
And I could see forever
You said I was the only one
(I saw the rain)
There we stood
Looking from a mountain
How could it happen so fast
Your love was sweet
But there were storms a comin'
And then I knew it couldn't last
I saw the rain, I saw the rain I saw the rain, I saw the rain (I saw the rain) When I looked up
I had lost my ground
You were too far ahead
I went to sleep
When I awoke this morning
You were still in my head
I saw the rain, I saw the rain I saw the rain, I saw the rain (I saw the rain) The fever starts
I wish that we were closer
But we were destined to end
I wish we could
Run through the hills forever
And I could call you my friend
I try to stop the pain I feel inside
But I have fallen too hard
It's you I lost
But you are not forgotten
You will always have my heart
I saw the rain, I saw the rain I saw the rain, I saw the rain (I saw the rain)
