Track Name: 16 (They Can Shine)
Our love is glorious
Shining in a million eyes
Heard your voice inside a dream
And I know...
I know I’m never, ever gonna be the same

Through darkest night
Our hearts will rise
Lights in the sky
They guide us home
…and float away

Our love is glorious
As the world is bleeding out
So I shout, I call your name
And I know...
And I know I’m never ever ever gonna be the same

Through darkest night
Naked and alive
Lights in the sky
That guides us home

Billion eyes in the dark
Will open
We are the spark
They can shine
They can shine again now
They can shine
They can shine again
Track Name: Heaven Help Me Now
Many years have come and gone
I remember everything
Can’t remember yesterday
So take me from the razor’s edge
Before I slip away
Ooh…

The dream is fading fast
as a light comes in the room
You’re still there
Screaming never stopped
it just buried in my head like’a like’a nightmare
And you’re still there

Life will make
A mess of plans
Take a bow to yesterday
Out of my hands
Ooh…

“If I could heal you with my voice I’d sing sweet medicine in your ear”
You can never be free
While you’re still plugged in
gonna leave my skin

Take me away from here
Take me away from here

The dream is fading fast
The dream is fading fast
Heaven help me now
Lost my way
Heaven help me now
Find my aim
Heaven help me now…
Track Name: Not a Love Song
THIS IS NOT A LOVE SONG
I DON'T KNOW A THING ABOUT LOVE
OH, I KNOW I MISS YOU
AND LATELY YOU ARE ALL I'M THINKING OF
BUT THIS IS NOT A SONG ABOUT LOVE

I GUESS MY HEART IS BROKEN
'CAUSE BROKEN IS THE WORD FOR HOW I FEEL
EVERYWHERE I GO
I CARRY THIS LONELINESS WITH ME STILL
I WORRY THAT THIS HURT WILL NEVER HEAL

ARE YOU HURT? LIKE I'M HURT?
I DON'T UNDERSTAND HOW A WOMAN AND A MAN
ALWAYS SEEM TO END UP LIKE THIS
ARE YOU LOST? I'M SO LOST
THIS IS NOT A LOVE, THIS IS NOT A LOVE SONG
THIS IS THE SOUND OF LONELINESS

THIS IS NOT A LOVE SONG
I DON'T KNOW A THING ABOUT LOVE
OH, I KNOW I MISS YOU
AND LATELY YOU ARE ALL I'M THINKING OF
BUT THIS IS NOT A SONG ABOUT LOVE

ARE YOU HURT? LIKE I'M HURT?
THEN I DON'T UNDERSTAND, FROM A WOMAN TO A MAN,
HOW WE EVER ENDED UP LIKE THIS
ARE YOU LOST? I'M SO LOST
THIS IS NOT A LOVE, THIS IS NOT A LOVE SONG
THIS IS THE SOUND OF LONELINESS

THIS IS NOT A LOVE SONG, SO LONG LOVE
I LIE AWAKE, IT'S YOU I'M THINKING OF

Track Name: Beautiful To Me
A KISS BEFORE YOU GO MY DEAR, OH OH

YOU KNOW ALL OF MY PECULIARITIES
ALL MY PECULIAR CURIOSITIES

YOU’VE SEEN EVERY INCH OF EVERY PART OF ME
MORE THAN ANYBODY ELSE WILL EVER SEE

I KNOW YOU’VE LOVED ME AT MY VERY WEAKEST
WALKED WITH ME WHEN THE ROAD WAS STEEPEST…OH

A KISS BEFORE YOU GO MY DEAR
YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL TO ME
YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL TO ME
YOU ARE EVERYTHING I REALLY NEED

YOU LAUGH WHEN ANYONE ELSE THEY WOULD’VE CRIED
STOOD YOUR GROUND AND STAYED RIGHT BY MY SIDE

YOU KNOW ALL OF MY PECULIARITIES
ALL MY PECULIAR CURIOSITIES

LAUGH BEFORE YOU CRY MY DEAR
A LIFE WITHOUT A SOUVENIR
EVERYTHING I NEED IS HERE
Track Name: Sunshine
SUNSHINE ALL AROUND
SUNSHINE, I’M COMING DOWN
SUNSHINE ALL AROUND
SUNSHINE COMING DOWN

ANOTHER DAY FOR TRAGIC FOOLS
PLAYING OUT THE GOLDEN RULE
DROWNING IN MOTHER’S EYES
A CHILD SHE DOESN’T RECOGNIZE
I'M FALLING IN,
TO THE SPACE INSIDE
WHERE YOUR LOVE BEGINS
OPENING MY EYES
SUNSHINE ALL AROUND
SUNSHINE, FALLING DOWN

BODIES FIND AN EMPTY FLOOR
PALE LIGHT CREEPS THROUGH A DOOR
A SECRET WORLD HIDDEN BETWEEN
DIRTY BEDS AND BETTER DREAMS
LET YOUR LOVE BEGIN
TO OPEN WIDE
BENEATH OUR SKIN
THE GREAT DIVIDE
SUNSHINE ALL AROUND
SUNSHINE, I’M COMING DOWN

ONLY LOVE, ONLY LOVE
ONLY LOVE CAN SAVE US THIS TIME…
Track Name: Gateway Drug
I want rock and roll,
Loud as my guitar,
I want rock and roll,
Before I go too far

It's not about the sex, the rules, the smell of you
It's not about your skin, your eyes, the fire in the dark
Even if my heart could stop, it's not enough
It’s just that I believe that when I’m with you...I believe, you’re my gateway drug

I believe that lies are cracks in desert sand
That across I walk, you lead with a cooool hand (and I say)

I wanna run,
I wanna run,
I wanna run, I wanna hide,
(I'm) slipping through to the other side
I wanna run

I better cover up my eyes, your lips, sweat drips down
Your coming like a raging fire that scars the sacred ground
I can feel the fever flood of Judas blood
I betray my life...you're a gateway drug

I wanna run,
I wanna run,
I wanna run, I wanna hide,
(I'm) slipping through to the other side
I wanna run

I want rock and roll,
Loud as my guitar,
I want rock and roll,
Before I go too far
I want rock and roll, I want rock and roll,
I want rock and roll, Rock and Roll
Before I fall like a million stars…
Track Name: Imagine+One
IMAGINE THERE'S NO HEAVEN
IT'S EASY IF YOU TRY
NO HELL BELOW US
ABOVE US ONLY SKY
IMAGINE ALL THE PEOPLE
LIVING FOR TODAY...

YOU MAY SAY I'M A DREAMER
BUT I'M NOT THE ONLY ONE
I HOPE SOMEDAY YOU'LL JOIN US
AND THE WORLD WILL BE AS ONE

ONE LOVE
ONE LIFE
WHEN IT'S ONE NEED
IN THE NIGHT
ONE LOVE
WE GET TO SHARE IT
LEAVES YOU BABY IF YOU
DON'T CARE FOR IT

LOVE IS A TEMPLE
LOVE A HIGHER LAW
LOVE IS A TEMPLE
LOVE THE HIGHER LAW
YOU ASK ME TO ENTER
BUT THEN YOU MAKE ME CRAWL
AND I CAN'T BE HOLDING ON
TO WHAT YOU GOT
WHEN ALL YOU GOT IS HURT

ONE LOVE
ONE BLOOD
ONE LIFE
YOU GOT TO DO WHAT YOU SHOULD
ONE LIFE
WITH EACH OTHER
SISTERS
BROTHERS
ONE LIFE
BUT WE'RE NOT THE SAME
WE GET TO
CARRY EACH OTHER, CARRY EACH OTHER…
