Track Name: Be True
Slow down, take care of yourself
Be honest, be true to me
You’re on a fast track to
Becoming ancient history

It’s not like me to forgive and forget
But I cave in
So smile when you are ready
Happy New Year baby
Let’s do it all again

You’ve lived a lot, but not learned
Pay attention, be true to me
A melancholy cabaret
You sing and dance your way into the street

So tell some dirty jokes
And smoke your cigarettes
You say you want to change
But I ain’t seen it yet

It’s not like me to forgive and forget
But I cave in
So smile when you are ready
Happy New Year baby
Let’s do it all again

Slow down, take care of yourself
Be honest, be true to me
Be honest, be true to me
Be honest, be true to me
Track Name: Halo
I want to be an angel
I want to be like you
I want the world as my plaything
I want my dream to come true
I want to be an angel
Not just some kid on the street
Wondering when I’ll ever get mine
When it’s floating right above me

You’re all I see, you’re all I do
And I can’t escape
And I don’t know if I want to be saved
Hover above, it’s always you
If I died today
You’d always be standing over my grave

And you look over my shoulder
Nobody knows you are there
Only I can feel you watching
Your eyes follow me everywhere
And you make me feel amazing
You make me feel brand new
You make me feel something more than human
And I wish I could be you

(chorus)

Sitting on your little cloud
You talk to me but not out loud
Still I know like a halo you will cover me
Tell me it’s alright
I close my eyes, you say goodnight
But then I lie awake and pray that you won’t leave

(chorus)

You’d always be standing over
Lucky like a four-leaf clover
You are my umbrella when it rains
And you’ll always be standing over my grave
Track Name: Birthday Girl (Into The Sun)
They’re passing ’round pieces of the birthday girl
Singing water or wine and pass the ice cream
Knowing they can pass the blame off on someone else
If all else fails

I’m picking up pieces of the lives I left behind
Mixing vodka and wine to quench my appetite for self-destruction
Trying to pull away
I raise my sails

Into the sun I go
I let the wind carry me on
And I feel a cool breeze blow
It reminds me of her
Reminds me of her

We’re older now, looking at the lives we left behind
Drinking water or wine and trading memories
Of our resurrections
Sometimes you gotta see the worst to know what’s best

Into the sun I go
I let the wind carry me on
And I feel a cool breeze blow
It reminds me of her
Reminds me of her
Track Name: Masterpiece
I’ve noticed a change in your gaze
It’s telling me
Whatever it is has been on your mind for days
And I’m sure I know
That you’re bubbling up from below
And about to explode

Confused and alone and ostracized
For telling me
I think it’s OK that we live our own lives
And when I’m on the phone
You start to cry
Like you want me right back by your side
Like we both never lied
Why?

From the eyes of a man who has been a little cruel
Your courageous display is making you look like such a fool

The future is ours to make
The canvas is blank
So you choose your favorite shade of nothing
And you start to paint
And all the buildings burned down
All the rivers run dry
And there are holes in the earth
There are holes in the sky
Don’t look to me and ask why
This picture has you terrified
Why?

’Cause this is your masterpiece, aren’t you proud?
This is your masterpiece, aren’t you proud?
This is your masterpiece, say it out loud
I’m alone and I’m proud
Track Name: Changing Your Mind (Again!)
I don’t want to say I told you so
But here he comes again and now you know
Sitting by myself at a table set for two
If you’ll be long I’ll order for you

No matter how many times you say
You’re not going back, no not that way
You crumble underneath the weight
You can’t be lovers, you can’t be friends
When will you put this to an end?
Don’t let me see you change your mind again

I’ve known you for years, I’ve noticed all the trends
You’ve always said we’re more than friends
So just humor me and take some sound advice
And get the hell away from him

(chorus)

I’ve always said
Do what you think is best for you
But now it’s time to do what’s best for me

(chorus)

Another feather in your cap—
I’ve heard it before, it’s a load of crap
Like a bug to fire, you run to hold his hand
You can’t be lovers, you can’t be friends
When will you put this to an end?
Don’t let me see you change your mind again
Don’t let me see you change your mind again
Don’t let me see you change your mind again
