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

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.

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

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.

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

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

Run 04:17
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 www.loversandpoetsmusic.com

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>

Happy 05:04
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.

Real Love 05:07
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.

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) www.loversandpoetsmusic.com Written by Shannon Hurley + Ben Eisen
