Track Name: We Are The Stars Tonight
Fear can hold you back
Can live your life can bring you down forever

Here in early hours
We’ll find a place we’ll wish away forever

Cause she got love and I got hate
And she got free and I got wait
And I cannot believe it

But tonight, we are the stars
We are the stars tonight

Fate is hard sometimes
She looks away just when you really need her

Cause she got love and I got hate
And she got over my mistakes
And I cannot believe it

But tonight, we are the stars
We are the stars tonight
Tonight, we are the stars
We are the stars tonight

Tonight, we are the stars
We are the stars tonight
Tonight, we are the stars
We are the stars tonight

And one day far from now
We’ll see it written in the skies
If we don’t live forever it’s alright
Cause we were stars tonight
Track Name: Anything For You
So close your eyes now
It’s just a false alarm
And I won’t let you
Come to any harm

You know that when it comes to you
There’s nothing in this world I wouldn’t do
And you can tell me anything
Just never let me hear you talk too soon oh no

Cause in my wildest dreams
I never thought we’d come to this
I know that in this world
There’s things you shouldn’t do
But I’d do anything for you

So keep on moving
And forget yesterday
And in the darkness
Lock your heart away away

Cause in my wildest dreams
I never thought we’d come to this
I know that in this world
There’s things you shouldn’t do
But I’d do anything for you
Track Name: Embers
Pretty in the dark
Just like I remembered it
So many times before
Is that the way it was?

Cause I can’t trust myself
To be anything but blinded
And I promise you I will never learn

There’s no way to be
Anything but who you are
So take all your mistakes
And wash them all away

There’s precious little time
To be hiding in the low light
So I promise you I will never learn

So when you call I’ll come running for you
And when you fall I’ll be waiting right here
There’s no other way except to watch it unfold
But I promise you I will never learn

Falling through the cloud
With nothing left to show except
The embers in my heart
Same as it ever was

And when all’s said and done
There’s a way to get what I want
But I promise you I will never learn

So when you call I’ll come running for you
And when you fall I’ll be waiting right here
Waiting
There’s no other way except to watch it unfold
But I promise you I will never learn
Track Name: Blindside
Second guess my heart
Nothing less than wrong
Tell me did you know
This was all along

Cause you know you know you know

Feels like I died and went to heaven

Nothing stays the same
Everything will change

Cause you know you know you know

Feels like I died and went to heaven

Cause you know you know you know
Track Name: Until We Head Into The Stars
Running the red lights where you been
Wearing our souls so very thin
See you in another life

Joining the dots fast as you can
Don’t let you doubts stop all your plans
Forget them all while you still can

But we can’t stop it now
No we can’t stop it now

And I promise that we’ll make it
Though it seems so very far
And I promise I’ll be waiting
Here until we head into the stars

Funny how everything can change
But if we ran the tape again
It would all end the exact same way

Maybe we’ll find out what it means
Or maybe the spaces in between
Are filled with something we can never see

But we can’t stop it now
No we can’t stop it now

And I promise that we’ll make it
Though it seems so very far
And I promise I’ll be waiting
Here until we head into the stars

Time was we didn’t know
Time was we didn’t know

But I promise that we’ll make it
Though it seems so very far
And I promise I’ll be waiting
Just promise me that you will keep your head until we make it to the stars
Track Name: Not An Illusion
Every word that you say
Will bring me back to this place

This changing world that we can't stop
We'll watch it turn no matter what
I know it won't change us
And in the calm before the storm
Of broken hearts and shattered hope
You gotta keep holding on

Remember love will never fade
Love is real
It's not an illusion

When you walk the high wire
Baby don't look down
Every step is the answer

Cause in this changing world that we can't stop
We'll watch it turn no matter what
I know it won't change us
And in the calm before the storm
Of broken hearts and shattered hope
You gotta keep holding on

Remember love will never fade
Love is real it's not an illusion

Cause in this changing world that we can't stop
We'll watch it turn no matter what
I know it won't change us
Cause when it comes
We’ve got this love in our heart

No matter what comes our way
Love is real it's not an illusion

It's not some faith
So hard to see
It’s not some faith
hard to believe

It’s not an illusion
Track Name: Realtime
Take me with you when you’re sure
We’ll be lost forever
Everything I’ll ever need
Got you right here with me

Stillness and light darkness so bright, but don’t you close your eyes

There’s a truth inside of you
And you can make it shine
Living in realtime

Climb your window in the night
Whole world’s on the other side
You know words don’t mean a thing
Where I end and you begin

Stillness and light darkness so bright, but don’t you close your eyes

There’s a truth inside of you
And you can make it shine
Living in realtime
Track Name: Run Forever
Open up the skylight baby let the truth come rushing in
Don’t you let your heart go anywhere just think what might have been
Now that all the waiting’s over don’t know what I wouldn’t give
To hide amongst the bygone shadows where I end and you begin

There’s never been a better time to be alive

You know that when tomorrow comes we can throw it all away
Until we cross the line when nothing’s ever gonna be the same
Cause we can live a million years and the light will never fade
And I won’t ever let you down, just call my name

Cause we got colours, we got love
And we got too much, of not enough
We got washed up, on the shore
We got everything, to answer for

There’s never been a better time to be alive

I think I see the sun rise, guessing all my wishes went astray
Tell me what the truth is baby is it time to leave this place?
Cause I will run forever with you
I will run forever with you
I will run forever with you
I will run forever with you

Does it make it better
Does it make it worse
Are we so lucky
Are we so cursed
With tomorrow coming
Can our hearts survive
Cause there’s never been a better time to be alive
Track Name: Who You Are
It’s not my heart you break
It’s every bone in my body
You don’t just grab my soul
No you swallow me whole

We’ve got nothing to celebrate
Except for us
Just let me know that you’re ok
With all my faults
You let me know that there’s nothing wrong
With who I am
Cause that’s who you are
My saviour

It’s me you came to see
When I didn’t know your name
Never tried to pray
But you came here anyway

There’s nothing happening in this town
Except for us
Of course it had to break down now
Cause that’s just my luck
And you sewed my heart
When it ripped in two
Cause that’s who you are
my saviour

So don’t you come round here anymore
With your hopes and dreams
I should have known better all along
Nothing’s what it seem
But you can put me together now
When I fall apart
Cause that’s who you are
My saviour
Track Name: Lake Geneva
We sat there on the edge of troubles in your heart
We watched them move in synchro
We travelled very far we didn’t even know
If we could ever make it home

But in our hearts we believed
We could wave this whole world free
How I wish that we could be
On the banks of Lake Geneva

We don’t need anyone remember what you said
We’re only living for the light
Sometimes I still believe that you are here with me
Your spirit in somebody’s eyes

And every word you ever said
Are super cut inside my head
We don’t need anything at all
You know I’ll catch you when you fall

And what I’d give you to be
Looking back on that endless sea
How I wish that we could be
On the banks of Lake Geneva

We can make it
We are there
We are lost without a prayer

We are perfect
We are saved
We are drifting on the waves

We are courage
We are love
We are all alone

We can make it
We are there
We are on the banks of Lake Geneva

We can make it
We are there
We are on the banks of Lake Geneva
Track Name: We Know Where You Live
Even when the time’s not right
And even when your name’s in lights
We’re shooting the breeze
And showing no fear
And hearts on our sleeves
And being sincere

And even when we crash and burn
And even when we never learn
It’s all LOL and ready to burst
And doing so well
And selling ciphers

We know where you live, and we won’t tell a soul
Just say what you want, we wanna know
Where did you hear about us where did you hear about us?

And even when we’re underground
And evem when we’re safe and sound
We’re hooking it up
And locking it down
And falling in love
And see you around

And even when we’re blacking out
And even when we can’t slow down
We’re painting the town
With scarlet alerts
And tears of a clown

And selling ciphers

We know where you live, but we won’t tell a soul
Just say what you want, we wanna know
Where did you hear about us where did you hear about us?

We know where you live but we won’t tell a soul
Just say what you want, we wanna know
Where did you hear about us where did you hear about us?

We know where you live but your secrets are safe
Our policy is you won’t escape
Where did you hear about us where did you hear about us?
Track Name: There You Were
I was lost
Given up
And there you were
There you were

I had stopped
Looking for love
And there you were
There you were

Now I’m standing falling off the edge
Trying to hang on every word you said
And I know you haven’t saved me yet
But I’m hoping...

Everything
Was not enough
And there you were
There you were

I had stopped
Looking for love
And there you were
There you were

And there’s no one gets me like you do
Letting go is all we have to lose
And somehow you let me know it’s true
And I’m hoping

I had stopped
Looking for love
And there you were
There you were
