Track Name: It Began
Yes I must confess
Love is blind and feelings make my life a mess
True, its so true
something changed in me the day that I met you

It began
With a heartbeat
It began with a single breath
It began when life started
and the moment changed so fast

It began the day that I met you
it began the day that I met you

Come, its real fun
Fun to live within this new life I've begun
See the change in me
I once was bound but now I'm free

It began
With a heartbeat
It began with a single breath
It began when life started
and the moment changed so fast

It began the day that I met you
it began the day that I met you

Walk in water deep
the ground won't touch your feet
and all that you will keep
is all you can't leave behind... its all in your mind.

It began
With a heartbeat
It began with a single breath
It began when life started
and the moment changed so fast

It began the day that I met you
it began the day that I met you
It began
Track Name: Learn From Me
Long journey on the road thats marked ahead love
if I stop to rest, I will lose my way
Many questions, bout the who, what, why and often
and just how far I go today...

How come all the guys I like to kiss have better things to do
maybe so I can chase my dreams again
How come all the times I take a chance at starting something new
I gain a love but quickly lose a friend

Learn from me says Love
Learn from me
Shake off your heavy burden and find rest

Learn from me says Love
Learn from me
Remind yourself that this is just a test... and pass on by, to the other side.

Broke my heart again, you'd think I'd learned the first time
to duck down, to bow out when danger looms
But I thought a second try, would somehow change the outcome
so I joined the chain of fools

chain chain chain

Learn from me says Love
Learn from me
Shake off your heavy burden and find rest

Learn from me says Love
Learn from me
Why don't you learn from me, learn from me, learn from me

Let it go this love won't stay, let the chips fall where they may
Allow the ordinary to take its course
Let it go, its crying out, don't you fear now, don't you doubt
Love is something you cannot force

Learn from me

Learn from me says Love
Learn from me
Shake off your heavy burden and find rest

Learn from me says Love
Learn from me
Remind yourself that this is just a test... and pass on by, to the other side.

ooooo ya know..

Track Name: God Made Me Tall

Track Name: Sunset
Videos and Neon Signs
Become the beat thats keeping... ti ti ti ti ti ti ti ti ti time
And sure you're feeling dizzy now
but trust me later you'll feel fine, you'll feel fine

The pavement underneath my feet
takes a turn and makes me a fool
Because I'm walking awkward on this boulevard
While everyone around me looks so cool.

Sunset.

The sun sets in every other valley
but the sun never sets in my town
you can feel the darkness hanging on your shoulders
as the lights go up and never settle down

Sunset
Take me in
Take me to where you never lay to sleep
Sunset
Take me in
Far, fast, forward, take me deep.
Take me deep.

the old man living downstairs, he don't like me
So, theres one way to get inside my place
Its through the quietness of the back door
Life is better see my face
Oooo its better when he doesn't see my face

On Sunset
Yeah on Sunset

But whats the good in early mornings,
unless they are the end of all those lonely nights walking Sunset Blvd
Looking for a friend, said I'm looking for a friend on Sunset. On Sunset.

Oh Oh

The sun sets in every other valley
but the sun never sets in my town
you can feel the darkness hanging on your shoulders
as the lights go up and never settle down

Sunset
Take me in
To where you never lay to sleep
Sunset
Take me in
as the deep cries to the deep.

la da da da da da ... ooo

Sunset....
Track Name: Never
Leave the world behind and hold me close forever
I've waited all this time, still the distance said Never.

Never to hold, never to love, never to be
And this never has been haunting me
Never to have, never to feel, never to touch
and this never is never enough.

No one in this lifetime, could change how I love you
They lie if they say, they love you, cause no one else can love the way that I do

Don't believe them, don't believe them
Don't believe their lies,
Let me hold your heart
and look into you eyes

But its Never to hold, never to love, never to be
And this never has been haunting me
Never to have, never to feel, never to touch
and this never is never enough.


The space between
you and me
will grow
but all I want is you with me
all I ever wanna know
all I ever wanna know

But its, Never to hold, never to love, never to be
And this never has been haunting me
Never to have, never to feel, never to touch
and this never is never enough.

Leave the world behind, and hold me close forever...
Track Name: Life Ain't Funny
Doot doot doo doo .....

You may be feeling lonely.
You may be feeling small.
You may feel like no one would care to love you at all.

Don't feel that way? Why? I'll tell ya!

I wanna cheer you up
I wannna cheer you up
Said I wanna cheer you up

Because life ain't funny you know life - aint fair
Life will make you worry when you don't wanna care
oo oo oo life ain't funny you know life - aint fair
Life will make you worry when you don't wanna care

Doot doot doo doo .....

Hope is quite absurd,
yeah its rather nutty
and it seems that only children hold it close

But my friend if you're in need of a buddy
I'm the kinda girl that you want around the most

Because, I wanna cheer you up
I wannna cheer you up
Said I wanna cheer you up

Because life ain't funny you know life - aint fair
Life will make you worry when you don't wanna care
oo oo oo life ain't funny you know life - aint fair
Life will make you worry when you don't wanna care

Doot doot doo doo .....

life ain't funny you know life - aint fair
Life will make you worry when you don't wanna care
oo oo oo life ain't funny you know life - aint fair
Life will make you worry when you don't wanna care

Doot doot doo doo .....
