Track Name: In her eyes
All these questions be unanswered
Oh so hard to say exactly what you mean
Oh suspicion you stay real close but i'll take your word for it

Does she know that my heart is breaking?
Can she feel it when I look in her eyes?
Does she know my heart is breaking?
Can she feel it when I look in her eyes?
Does she know?

Oh where do we go from here?
Spinning round out of control it's clear
Send me clear instructions
Send me a guide to your heart
Cos I don't know where I stand
I feel shipwrecked oh so stranded

Does she know that my heart is breaking?
Can she feel it when I look in her eyes?
Does she know that my heart is breaking?
Can she feel it when I look in her eyes?
No matter how i try to hide it my heart is breaking
No matter how I try to hide it my heart is breaking

Does she know that?
And would she care?
oh chained up in silence there's no escaping
Does she know my heart is breaking?
Does she know when I look in her eyes?
Does she know my heart my heart is breaking?
Does she know when I look in her eyes?
Track Name: Please
I feel your presence when you enter the room
and it excites me, oh yeah you excite me
yeah you excite me, I feel your heartbeat
faster and faster, I hear your breathing change
Is this desire? Is this desire?
Shower me in all your desire

I wanna touch you
I wanna kiss you
I wanna squeeze you
I wanna please you, oh please
I wanna touch you
I wanna kiss you
I wanna squeeze you
I wanna please you

Even if you dont want me just play along
just play along
In the morning everything changes
feelings sometimes fade away
You're left feeling all rejected but I want you
so I'll risk it, yeah I want you so I'll risk
Yeah I want you so I'll risk it

I wanna touch you
I wanna kiss you
I wanna squeeze you
I wanna please you, oh please
I wanna touch you
I wanna kiss you
I wanna squeeze you
I wanna please you, oh please
Oh please, you excite
oh please, you excite
oh yeah you excite
oh please you excite
oh please you excite
oh please you excite

I wanna touch you
I wanna kiss you
I wanna squeeze you
I wanna please you, oh please
I wanna touch you
I wanna kiss you
I wanna squeeze you
I wanna please you, oh please
oh please, oh please, oh please, ah
I wanna touch you
Track Name: Love rage
You shower me in all your kisses
one moment you think you love me
Next moment you think you shower me in rage
All of a sudden you don't want me
A risk you can't take, a risk you won't take

All I ever do is stand there and wait for you
Praying that you say something that I could cling to

oh I think I love you
Oh Yeah I really love you
Oh I wish you loved me too
but I know you just feel rage

I want your love and only your love
I want your love and only your love
I want your love and only your love
I want your love and only your love

Wear your insecurities if you like
Tell me any lie you like
I won't judge you
I won't say if you're wrong
and I'll pretend it's okay, I'll play it so safe
I'll play so safe

It's you I want and only you I want
It's you I want and you alone
It's you I want and you alone
It's you I want and you alone
It's you I want and you alone
It's you I want and you alone
It's you I want and you alone
and you're the only one I want

All the others don't matter
they don't count let's start again
All the others don't matter
they don't count let's start again
All the others they don't matter, they don't matter anymore
All the others they don't matter, they don't matter anymore

It's you I want and you alone
It's you I want and you alone
It's you I want and you alone
It's you I want and you alone
It's you I want and you alone
It's you I want
It's you I want and you alone
It's you I want, and you alone
Track Name: I don't share
I don't share, I won't try
I don't want 50%, give it is all or nothing
I won't settle for any less
oh I won't share, I don't like this half in half out rubbish
You either put your head on the chopping block or you forget this
Cos I don't share and I won't, I just won't change my mind
I don't like this bed hopping lark
I don't like it when they lie
I said I won't, wont share, and I won't change my mind
all or nothing, you're either in or you're out

I said I won't, won't share, and I won't change my mind
there's nothing left that I won't get from someone else in time
you've got to know, I don't wait and I won't, won't chase
you've got to know, I won't chase you anywhere

I said I don't share and I will not change my mind
I said I just don't care, nobodys worth that kind of lines
I said I just want somebody who is mine
I will love them 100 % but I expect that back

I said, I don't want second best, I will not settle
You're either in or you are out
I won't share, don't you forget it
I will not change my mind cos my mind has been madeup
I said I won't, won't share I don't love one enough
oh I will be all in or I'd rather be all out
but I won't hang around while you fucking make your mind up
If you don't know instantly then it's a no, a no from me

I won't share, no I won't share
No I don't think nobody is worth that
Track Name: I'm not over you
If I could see you again I'd hold you close to me
Whisper in your ear all the things you want to hear
I don't believe you, I don't believe you're happy
I'd feel it if it were true
And all I can do is wait until the day where you say maybe you want me

So how do I get through this?
How do I get over you when you're all I think about day and night?
So how do I get over this?
How do I get over you when you're all I think about day and night?
So how do I get over this?
So how do I get over you when you're all I think about day and night?

How do I put my feelings aside when they are so consuming?
How can i see with these tear stained eyes, and heart that is always screaming your name at night?
How do I put it aside?
How do I pretend I'm alright when I'm really not?

How do I get over this?
How do I get over you when you're all I think about day and night?
How do I get over this?
How do I get over you when you're all I think about day and night?
How do I get over this?
How do I get over you when you're all I think about day and night?
Oh how do I get over this?
How do I get over you when you are all I think about day and night?
How do I get over you?
Track Name: Failure is not an option
Looks like butter wouldn't melt
just illusion oh illusion
You see what you wanna see
You only see what you wanna see
Is she poison? She feels like poison to me, to me
Why am I trying, why am I trying so hard?
She doesn't want me, she doesn't want me or so she says, or so she says
She doesn't know what she really wants
but does she know she ain't found it yet?

No second chances, no changed opinions
Failure is not an option
No second chances, no changed opinions
Failure is not an option
No second chances, no changed opinions
Failure is not an option, it's not an, an option to me

Mind control, mind games, roughed up
No laughing matter under the carpet swept up
Oh yeah we are gonna sweep it all up
Let's pretend we'll all be friends
Let's pretend we'll all be friends
Let's pretend smile for photo
Let's have a group hug
no one gives it up
Mind control, mind games, roughed up
No one to blame

No second chances, no changed opinions
Failure is not an option
No second chances, no changed opinions
Failure is not an option
No second chances, no changed opinions
Failure is not an option

No second chances, no changed opinions
Failure is not an option
No second chances, no changed opinions
Failure is not an option
No second chances, no changed opinions
Failure is not an option, it's not an, an option to me
not an option to me
it's not an option to me
it's not an option to me
Track Name: My heart breaks
The truth is my heart breaks for you
My hands are tied I had to let to go
I always give you what you say you need
I'd never stand in the way of your happiness
If that is what you want then that is what you will get
If that is what you want then that is what you will get
but you don't know what you do to me
you don't feel what I feel

My heart breaks at the sight of you
My heart breaks
My heart breaks at the sight of you
My heart just breaks
My heart just breaks
My heart just breaks
My heart just breaks

time after time we try to sort this out
You always need to be in control
even when you are calling all the wrong shots
I said you don't know what you do to me
You don't feel what I feel

My heart breaks at the sight of you
My heart breaks
My heart breaks at the sight of you
My heart just breaks
My heart just breaks, at the sight of you
My heart just breaks
My heart just breaks
My heart just breaks
My heart just breaks
My heart just breaks
My heart just breaks
You don't know what you do to me
You don't feel what I feel
My heart breaks at the sight of you
My heart breaks at the sight of you
Track Name: Play nice
I don't know what you want from me but I decline your offer of civiliality
I said, don't want to persue the obtainable
I just want to do what I want and not look back for something I don't have

I want something, I want something real
I said I want something, something I can feel
I said don't want this, don't want no games
Don't want shame, fear or ones to blame

I want something, I want something real
I said I want something real
I want something, I want something real
I want something, something I can feel

Don't want to play your games
Don't want to be on losing end no more
What I recieve ain't enough to keep me keen so I'm giving up

I want something, I want something real
I want something, something I can feel
I want something, I want something real
I want something, oh something I can feel

I don't play your games no
I don't want to be your toy
I don't want to be your toy oh oh oh no no oh oh

Track Name: Reserved
You don't need to worry all my love is reserved for you
All the distance make my heart miss you more
You should know I think you're perfection
You don't need to wear that makeup your beauty shines through
oh I prayed the distance would make my heart fade but it grows stronger
I love you
I tell myself that it is all just a lie
Oh how I try to deny what I feel for you

Oh my love you should know that
All my love is reserved for you
Cos I think that you are perfection in everything you do
Oh I think that you are perfection, there's nothing wrong with you
Oh I think that you are perfection, I love everything you do
Yeah I know that you are perfection, I couldn't love anyone but you
all my love is reserved just for you

I look in your eye I'm called down on my knees
There is nobody that can make me quake the way that you do
I said oh you're perfection in everything you do
Oh oh you're perfection in every single way
Oh oh you're perfection in every thing you do
oh oh you're perfection, perfect just for me

Track Name: As strange as fiction
I thought that I could get through this
Thought that I could resist the temptation
Thought that I was strong enough to let it go
I said I wanted you to leave

It's as strange as fiction real life
Some would say stranger and crueler that times

So now I'm acting like a fool
Tempers high, and insults flying
Done all I promised not to do
And said some things I didn't mean to

It's as strange as fiction real life
Some would say stranger and crueler that times

So now I'm crying over you
Another thing I said I'd never do
I never missed you until you were gone
I always want what I cannot have

It's as strange as fiction real life
Some would say stranger and crueler that times
It's as strange as fiction real life
Some would say stranger and crueler that times
Track Name: Full circle
Here I stand I've come full circle back to you
I tried to fight what I felt I told myself it weren't no good
I had to fight this love, I had to fight this love
Here I stand, oh now that I'm confessing my love
Do you hear me when I say that I'm confessing my love?
Do you hear me when I stand face to face and say it's you I want?
Yeah it's you I want

Years fly by but they do not change my desires they're the same as they've always been
Yeah I've aged but my heart is still just missing
Oh my love I'm confessing to you
Do you hear me when I say that I'm confessing my love?
Do you hear me when I stand face to face and say it's you I want?
Yeah it's you I want

Oh don't you leave me all alone, I'm saying
oh no don't you leave me wondering how you're doing
Baby I miss you every single day
Yeah I miss you every single day

Now that I'm confessing my love
Do you hear me when I say that I'm confessing my love?
Do you hear when I stand face to face and say it's you that I want?
Yeah it's you I want
Do you hear me when I'm confessing my love?
Do you hear me when I say that I'm confessing my love?
Do you hear when I stand face to face and say it's you I want?
Track Name: Your Silence
Is it love or war cos I can't the difference anymore?
You say it's all over but I see you standing at my door
Fast cars passing quickly and I'm the only stranger walking here
I guess I'll wait for the day when you finally say what you came to say
Oh is itlove or war cos I can't tell the difference anymore?
You say it's all over but I see you standing at my door

Sometimes your silence says more than any words could ever do
sometimes your silence says more than your beautiful songs ever could
sometimes the silence speaks a little louder than the music does
Sometimes the silence speaks and makes you wounded baby
when the questions don't get answered that's when hurts grows
I know that your silence speaks volumes for you
but is it love or war cos I can't tell no more it feels the same
is it love or war cos I can't tell no more it feels the same
