She says she's just buying time
He could never please her so he has to go
Yeah he really loved her
but he bores her to tears
Enough is enough this time it is clear that

She's going to trade him in, she's going to trade him in

She's going to trade him in, she's going to trade him in
She'll get a better model
Wooohoo

He's like a puppy dog
She keeps him on a tight lead
Her little puppy dog will be back in the kennels again
She hopes he will go to a good home but she won't reconsider

She's going to trade him in, she's going to trade him in
She'll get a better model
She's going to trade him in, she's going to trade him in
She'll get a better model
She's going to trade him in, she's going to trade him in
She'll get a better model
Wooohoo

She says men are like are cars

She says men are like cars they lose their value after a while on the road

She's going to trade him in, she's going to trade him in
She'll get a better model
She's going to trade him in, she's going to trade him in
She'll get a better model

Track Name: Grace Under Fire
Looks like an angel but acts like the devil
Grace is a mood
could them blue eyes have seen more than they ever should?

Grace my angel why is life being cruel you
All the other children just torment you


Oh Grace under fire, Grace under fire, she is burning
Oh Grace under fire, Grace under fire, she is burning

Long blonde hair to hide that evil smile such look of innocence
but she's devil's child, oh she is devil's child

Oh Grace under fire, Grace under fire, she is burning
Oh Grace under fire, Grace under fire, she is burning

Grace sweet child I know you're endangered
but don't you think you should learn to love yourself
not hate yourself like you do?

Oh Grace under fire, Grace under fire, she is burning
oh Grace under fire, Grace under fire, she is burning
She is burning
Oh she is burning, burning, burning
Track Name: Burning Bridge
Same old double standards
It's alright for you but not for me
I've got to be perfect, I've got to be flawless
I've got to not repeat your mistakes

You're my burning bridge
The one I won't let go of
No matter how the flames rage
I'm still holding on to you
You are my burning bridge
The one I won't let go of
No matter how this bridge burns
I still keep holding on

Waiting for you to make one gesture
Instead of making and breaking so easily
It wouldn't take much
It wouldn't take much
Oh it wouldn't take much
No it wouldn't take much

You are my burning bridge
I will not let you go
No matter how the flames rage
I'm still holding on
You are my burning bridge
I will not let you go
No matter how these flames rage
I'm still holding on

And I'm getting burned
I'm getting hurt
I'm getting burned
I'm getting hurt

You are my burning bridge
I will not give you up
No matter how the flames rage
I'm still holding on
You are my burning bridge
I will not give you up
No matter how these flames rage
I'm still holding on

It wouldn't take much
It wouldn't take much
It wouldn't take much
No it wouldn't take much

Oh we could save this
Oh we could save ourselves
Oh we could save this love
Oh we could save ourselves

And I'm holding on to this burning bridge
Oh I'm holding on,holding on
holding on, holding on
Track Name: Ice Queen
Didn't come here looking for love
Didn't come here searching for lust
Oh take the hint, oh take the hint
Your conversation is boring me to tears

No great adventures will be found here
Cos you're just not my type


Oh take that look right off your face
The one that says why can't you love me the way I love you?
Yeah take that look right off your face
The one that says why can't you love me back the way I love you?

Cos I'm a ice queen my heart is mean
Oh I'm a ice queen and I don't want you
Ice queen cos my heart is mean, oh I'm a ice queen and I don't want you

So what's your problem, so what's your problem
No means no
Don't declare love for people you don't even know
You'll be so sorry, you'll be sorry if you don't listen
No sweet words just sharp truths

So take that look right off your face
The one that says why can't you love me the way I love you?
Yeah take that look right off your face
The one that says why can't you love me back the way I love you?

Cos I'm a ice queen my heart is mean
Oh I'm a ice queen and I don't want you
Ice queen cos my heart is mean, Oh I'm a ice queen and I don't want you
ice queen cos my heart is mean
Oh I'm a ice queen and I don't want you

Take that look right off your face
The one that says why can't you love me the way I love you?
Yeah take that look right off your face
The one that says why can't you love me back the way I love you?

Cos I'm a ice queen my heart is mean
Oh I'm a ice queen and I don't want you
Ice queen cos my heart is mean, oh I'm a ice queen and I don't want you
ice queen cos my heart is mean
Oh I'm a ice queen and I don't want you
ice queen cos my heart is mean
Oh I'm a ice queen and I don't want you
Track Name: Because
Don't blame it on my youth
Would have done anything for you
You said I was too young, well I'm 23 now
And I feel exactly the same as I did back then when I was 18, only 18


I'd walk to the other end of the earth for you
I'd cry an ocean just for you
I'd try until I had no strength
I'd do anything just for you
If only you loved me the way I loved you
If you wanted me the way I wanted you
Yeah I wanted you, really wanted you, and you alone


You said I'd have to stray
It was you though, not me
You said I'd have to play I was only 18
But now you see it wasn't me
cos I loved you
Why couldn't you love me too?
Yeah I wanted you, why couldn't you want me too?


I'd walk to the other end of the earth for you
I'd cry an ocean just for you
I'd try until I had no strength
I'd do anything just for you

I'd walk to the other end of the earth for you
I'd cry an ocean just for you
I'd try until I had no strength
I'd do anything just for you
Track Name: The Player
All my friends say you're a player and I must be a fool
for standing by and loving you
When I know you're gonna break my heart that's what players do

And in the end all the sweet words fade into little lies
I see it in your eyes you're a player through and through


And if you're playing me don't let me know
Cos it will hurt too much
Oh if you're playing me don't let me know
Cos it will hurt too much


You're player and I'm fool
Once the hate is gone I'll forgive you
until the next time you let me down like you do
You'd think I'd learn by now but I'm just a fool
I Just can't stay angry at you even though you treat me like you do

And if you're playing me don't let me know
Cos it will hurt too much
Oh if you're playing me don't let me know
Cos it will hurt too much
oh if you are playing me don't let me know
if you are playing me don't let me know
don't let me know
don't let me know
don't let me know
Track Name: Walking Advertisement
I'm a walking advertisement for all my addictions
I'm a selection of the finest human contradictions

Calling all the people can anybody hear me?
What do you all signify and yeah I'm an advertisement
