LOST AT SEA

ANIMAL

WHERE ARE YOU GONNA BE
WHEN THE PAST CATCHES UP TO YOUR FEET
DID YOU REALLY THINK YOU WERE GONNA GET OUT
LIKE EVERYONE ELSE IN TOWN
HOW ARE YOU GONNA STAND
WITH YOUR HEAD TUCKED UNDERNEATH THE SAND
WE KEEP ON MARCHING WITH A BLINDFOLD ON
TO THE EDGE OF REASON ALMOST GONE

FLY WITH THE WIND AND YOU'LL MAKE IT OK
IF YOU FALL OUT OF LINE THEN YOU'LL NEVER BE SAFE
IF YOU KNOW WHERE TO GO THEN YOU'LL ALWAYS BE FREE
IF YOU JUST SPREAD YOUR WINGS LIKE THE BIRDS IN THE BREEZE

HEAVY IS AN OPEN MIND
I SEE THE TRUTH EVERY TIME I FIND
IF I'M AWAKE OR SLEEPING IN THE CLOUDS
FAR AWAY FROM EVERYONE ELSE
EVERY TIME I LOOK FOR TRUTH
IT LEAVES ME EMPTY LAYING NEXT TO YOU
I FIND THE SAFEST PLACE TO RUN AWAY
IS IN THE HEART WHERE YOU WANNA STAY

FLY WITH THE WIND AND YOU'LL MAKE IT OK
IF YOU FALL OUT OF LINE THEN YOU'LL NEVER BE SAFE
IF YOU KNOW WHERE TO GO THEN YOU'LL ALWAYS BE FREE
IF YOU JUST SPREAD YOUR WINGS LIKE THE BIRDS IN THE BREEZE

I'M NOT AN ANIMAL
I'M NOT AN ANIMAL
I'M NOT AN ANIMAL

FLY WITH THE WIND AND YOU'LL MAKE IT OK
IF YOU FALL OUT OF LINE THEN YOU'LL NEVER BE SAFE
IF YOU KNOW WHERE TO GO THEN YOU'LL ALWAYS BE FREE
IF YOU JUST SPREAD YOUR WINGS LIKE THE BIRDS IN THE BREEZE


COLD DEAD HEART

DID YOU NOTICE I WAS SINKING
DID YOU NOTICE THE WRITING ON THE WALL
IN THE MIDDLE OF THE WINTER
FROZEN AT YOUR DOOR

BUT THEN YOU TOOK MY BREATH THEN YOU TOOK MY
YOU TOOK MY BREATH AWAY
I WAS HOLDING ON I WAS HOPING
I WAS HOPING THAT YOU'D STAY

BUT IF YOU GOT A COLD DEAD HEART
DO YOU REALLY THINK YOU'LL MAKE IT FAR
YOUR GONNA BURN AWAY FROM CLOSE PROXIMITY
I'M GONNA WAGE A WAR FOR THE FALLEN STARS
I'M NEVER GONNA TURN AROUND
NEVER GONNA SEE YOU HIT THE GROUND
I'LL NEVER LET YOU GO, BUT JULIET
NO ROMEO, WITHOUT A POTION WE'LL JUST WHITHER AWAY

I REMEMBER THE TIMES YOU COULD NEVER DRIFT AWAY
WITH A WHISPER OF LIGHT I'D BRING YOU HOME
OH THE BREAKING OF THE HEART LEADS TO THE START
BURNING WITH A BRIGHTER FLAME
BUT THE BREAKING OF A HEART BLEEDS FROM THE SCARS
CUT FROM THE SHATTERED REMAINS

BUT THEN YOU TOOK MY BREATH THEN YOU TOOK MY
YOU TOOK MY BREATH AWAY
I WAS HOLDING ON I WAS HOPING
I WAS HOPING THAT YOU'D STAY

BUT IF YOU GOT A COLD DEAD HEART
DO YOU REALLY THINK YOU'LL MAKE IT FAR
YOUR GONNA BURN AWAY FROM CLOSE PROXIMITY
I'M GONNA WAGE A WAR FOR THE FALLEN STARS
I'M NEVER GONNA TURN AROUND
NEVER GONNA SEE YOU HIT THE GROUND
I'LL NEVER LET YOU GO, BUT JULIET
NO ROMEO, WITHOUT A POTION WE'LL JUST WHITHER AWAY

OH THE BREAKING OF THE HEART LEADS TO THE START
BURNING WITH A BRIGHTER FLAME
BUT THE BREAKING OF A HEART BLEEDS FROM THE SCARS
CUT FROM THE SHATTERED REMAINS

BUT THEN YOU TOOK MY BREATH THEN YOU TOOK MY
YOU TOOK MY BREATH AWAY
I WAS HOLDING ON I WAS HOPING
I WAS HOPING THAT YOU'D STAY

BUT IF YOU GOT A COLD DEAD HEART
DO YOU REALLY THINK YOU'LL MAKE IT FAR
YOUR GONNA BURN AWAY FROM CLOSE PROXIMITY
I'M GONNA WAGE A WAR FOR THE FALLEN STARS
I'M NEVER GONNA TURN AROUND
NEVER GONNA SEE YOU HIT THE GROUND
I'LL NEVER LET YOU GO, BUT JULIET
NO ROMEO, WITHOUT A POTION WE'LL JUST WHITHER AWAY


lost at sea

DRAGON FLYING HIGH ABOVE US
BURNING EVERYTHING AROUND US
WE'LL DIVE INTO THE OCEAN
SEARCHING DEEPER FOR A MAGIC POTION
IF WE GOTTA FACE THE FIRE
WE'RE GONNA PUT IT OUT WITH LOVE DESIRE

SLOW DOWN
BREATHE IN
WAKE UP
YOU'RE THE REASON

WE ARE LOST AT SEA AN AMERICAN TALE OF AN AMERICAN
CHAPTER ONE: IN THE SHADOW OF THE DARKEST HOUR
YOU CAN TAKE MY HAND IF YOU'RE SINKING IN SAND
I'LL LAY IT DOWN, I'LL LAY IT DOWN
CAUSE YOU ARE THE BEAUTY OF IT ALL

SAILING OUT INTO THE OPEN
BREAKING FROM A HEART THAT'S FROZEN
SO DO YOU EVER WONDER
IF THE WAVES CAN FEEL THE ROLLING THUNDER
EVERYTHING ABOVE IS VIOLENT
UNDERNEATH ANOTHER WORLD IS SILENT

SLOW DOWN
BREATHE IN
WAKE UP
YOU'RE THE REASON

WE ARE LOST AT SEA AN AMERICAN TALE OF AN AMERICAN
CHAPTER TWO: IN THE MIDDLE OF A SILENT MOMENT
YOU CAN TAKE MY HAND IF YOU'RE SINKING IN SAND
I'LL LAY IT DOWN I'LL LAY IT DOWN
CAUSE YOU ARE THE BEAUTY OF IT ALL
CAUSE YOU ARE THE BEAUTY OF IT ALL

IN THE NIGHT I'LL HOLD YOU TIGHT
IN THE MORNING YOU'RE THE LIGHT
IF WE EVER NEED TO GO
FARAWAY BUT WOULD YOU STAY

IF WE ARE LOST AT SEA AN AMERICAN TALE OF AN AMERICAN
CHAPTER THREE: UNDER SHELTER FROM THE BURNING WATER
I WILL HOLD MY BREATH IF YOU SINK INTO THE DEPTHS
I'LL LAY IT DOWN, I'LL LAY IT DOWN
CAUSE YOU ARE THE BEAUTY OF IT ALL
CAUSE YOU ARE THE BEAUTY OF IT ALL


RECORD STORE

IT'S A BEAUTIFUL COLORFUL
CLOUDY KIND OF WEEKEND
I TOOK THE TRAIN LOOK AROUND
EVERYBODY SLEEPING
AM I THE ONLY ONE HAVING FUN
ON THIS ROCKET SHIP TO THE SUN
LET'S TURN THE RADIO UP, UP, UP

IF YOU OPEN
IF YOU OPEN
IF YOU OPEN YOUR HEART
TO THE RHYTHM
TO THE RHYTHM
TO THE RHYTHM OF THE STARS

I'M WALKING THROUGH THE RECORD STORE
FINDING BURIED TREASURE
WHEN I SAW THE GIRL OF MY DREAMS
IN A GOLDEN SWEATER
SHE WAS STARING FROM ACROSS THE ROOM
BILLIE JEAN WAS BLASTING THROUGH THE ROOF
I WALKED OVER IN SLOW SLOW-MO

IF YOU OPEN
IF YOU OPEN
IF YOU OPEN YOUR HEART
TO THE RHYTHM
TO THE RHYTHM
TO THE RHYTHM OF THE STARS

I SEE THE BURNING IN YOUR EYES
I FEEL THE FIRE
YOU ELEVATE ME IN A WAY
THAT TAKES ME HIGHER
CAN YOU FEEL IT TOO
VOLCANO WITH YOU
CAN YOU FEEL IT TOO

IF YOU OPEN
IF YOU OPEN
IF YOU OPEN YOUR HEART
TO THE RHYTHM
TO THE RHYTHM
TO THE RHYTHM OF THE STARS


RUNNING

I MAY NEED A SWEATER
YOU FEEL COLD
THE LAWS OF ATTRACTION
ARE THEY GETTING OLD
A BITTER REUNION
I'LL TAKE YOU HOME
BEGGING MY INNER
SOUL TO KEEP YOU WARM

IF YOU'RE FROZEN I WILL PULL YOU CLOSER TO MY HEART
OPEN UP YOUR ARMS
IF I'M RUNNING OUT OF TIME BEFORE YOU BREAK APART
FIND ME IN THE DARK

I FOUND YOU IN PIECES
I FEEL BAD
WE MUST HAVE RUN OUT OF REASONS
TO SAVE WHAT WE HAD
I DON'T EVER WANNA WALK AWAY

IF YOU'RE FROZEN I WILL PULL YOU CLOSER TO MY HEART
OPEN UP YOUR ARMS
IF I'M RUNNING OUT OF TIME BEFORE YOU BREAK APART
FIND ME IN THE DARK

TAKE ALL THE LOVE YOU HAVE INSIDE
GIVE IT AWAY TO REIGNITE

IF YOU'RE FROZEN I WILL PULL YOU CLOSER TO MY HEART
OPEN UP YOUR ARMS
IF I'M RUNNING OUT OF TIME BEFORE YOU BREAK APART
FIND ME IN THE DARK

 


VENTURA BLVD

YOU'RE ON THE EDGE OF A BROKEN DREAM
YOU'RE STANDING STILL AS THE WORLD IS PASSING BY
YOU WANNA BE A TELEVISION QUEEN
YOU RAN AWAY FROM THE FEARS YOU'VE BUILT INSIDE
YOU WERE LIGHTING UP A CIGARETTE
HIDING EVERYTHING AROUND YOU IN A HAZE
LOOKING DOWN I COULD SEE REGRET
FALLING TEARS THAT'S WHEN I HEARD YOU SAY

WHAT AM I DOING HERE
FAR AWAY FROM EVERYONE I LOVE
WHAT AM I DOING HERE
CHASING ALL THE STARS THAT FELL ABOVE

VENTURA BOULEVARD

IN THE VALLEY WITH A STOLEN HEART
BY A SHADOW OF THE HOLLYWOOD HILLS
DID YOU THINK THAT YOU WOULD MAKE IT THIS FAR
HE MUST HAVE KNOWN JUST HOW YOU'D FEEL
WITH A PROMISE HE WOULD OPEN DOORS
DID YOU KNOW WHEN HE TURNED OFF THE BEDROOM LIGHTS
WAKING UP ALL ALONE ONCE MORE
JUST A ONE NIGHT STAND FROM HIS WIFE

WHAT AM I DOING HERE
FAR AWAY FROM EVERYONE I LOVE
WHAT AM I DOING HERE
CHASING ALL THE STARS THAT FELL ABOVE

VENTURA BOULEVARD

PASSING TIME NEVER EASY
DON'T GIVE UP KEEP ON BREATHING
AND YOU'LL FIND
OPEN DOORS
EVERY STEP YOU TAKE ONE MORE
FURTHER FROM THE WORLD BEHIND

VENTURA BOULEVARD
