Track Name: Not Fair
Love gives you wings so you can learn to fly
so watch out dear 'cause you may fall and possibly die.
That can't be right 'cause

Love kills
and life's not fair.
Love makes you do stupid things, and you
don't even care,
well I do.

You're not coming back and I can tell you why:
you haven't even called or stopped by to say "Hi".

Love kills
and life's not fair.
Even if happiness exists I am
nowhere near to being there,
but you are.

Love kills
and life's not fair.
I don't want to die alone 'cause I
want you to be there
when I do.
Track Name: Happy Without You
I don't understand your actions.
I don't understand why you have to put me down.
Do you honestly think I will give into you?
I've been there once and I almost drowned.

You don't care about my freedom.
You don't even care about how I feel inside.
All you know is you can rhyme my name with things.
You just hunt me down and shoot my pride.

I'll tell you something, my dear,
you had me think you weren't what you appeared.
You twisted my mind until I wanted to be
someone who hates me.

I'm not what you think I'm made of.
I am not as small as you make me out to be.
I'm bigger than you and you know it.
It's killing you so you're killing me.

I'll tell you something, my dear,
your dumb charade isn't something I fear.
I'm stronger than you emotionally.
You cannot break me.

I've dealt with you for years.
Now it's time to face my fears.
I'm tired of crying.
I'm tired of your lying.

I'll tell you something, my dear,
I'm standing up 'cause I don't want to hear
your lousy lying 'cause honestly
without you I'm happy.

I'll tell you something, my dear,
you had me think you weren't what you appeared.
I'm stronger than you emotionally.
Without you I'm happy.
You cannot break me.
You're just someone who hates me.
Track Name: I Wish I Could Better Express My Feelings For You
I think you look great all the time.
Something about you always gives me butterflies.
You tend to take my breath away.
You're just the kind of guy I'd love to spend all day with.

I have to get this off my chest,
out of the whole wide world I think that you're the best.
I love that I can make you smile.
And when you look at me time freezes for a while.

You make my heart skip a beat,
see you and I can hardly speak.
And boy you're always on my mind
I think about you all the time.

I love the silly puns you say.
But then again I love you in every single way.
I always want to hold your hand.
You're so attractive that I cannot even stand it.

It's like you're something from a dream,
a dream so good that I can't sleep.
You seem too good to be true,
can't keep my eyes off of you.

Can't think of anything else clever,
but I wish that I could be with you for, like, ever.
And one more thing before I go,
my dear, I love you more than you will ever know.
Track Name: 1984
He was just a sad man
rewriting the past
double plus afraid of rats

He hated society
just wanted to be free
in a fair Democracy

But this was 1984
Oceania was at war
with Eastasia or Eurasia
no one quite knows which
but they all know that Goldstein's a bad guy

Then he met a stranger
At times he hated her
then he wanted to mate with her

They were totes rebellious
and joined a group against
Big Brother and the rest

But this was 1984
Your old guy friend has busted down your hideout door
Big Brother and the telescreens
know just what you've done
so welcome Winston to Room 101

But this is 1984
get those rats away from him
he don't love her anymore
2+2=4, no wait it equals 5
He realizes who he loves
and dies
Track Name: Young
Hold me near
close to you dear.
Cheek to cheek.
You complete me.

The night is young still.
The night is young, and so are we.

I am blue
without you.
I can't sleep
without your arms around me.

You are my dream, boy.
You are my dream I'd like to keep.

Day and night,
been crossing my mind.
Your charm and the way you hold me tight.
I can't live without that every night.

Be with me
and don't you leave.
Stick around
until I'm buried underground.

I want your love, you see.
I want your love to be for me.
Track Name: I'm In Love
When I first saw your face
I could tell you'd have a place
in my arms.

When you spoke my heart did melt.
I wasn't sure just how I felt
and then you smiled.

My knees are growing weaker,
my tongue is swelling up.
I know it might be early
but while we're on the subject
I'm in love!

Twas no surprise when we first kissed.
Let's be real, we could not resist
each other's charm.

Our lips were getting closer,
our hands were holding tight.
I wish that we were married
so we could cuddle all the time.
I'm in love!

You make my stomach flutter,
you make my soul fly free.
I never thought I'd love you,
but now I am so utterly in love.

When I first saw your face

I'll love you and forever.
I don't want this to end.
The thought it makes me shiver,
but then dear I remember
I'm in love!
Track Name: Why Should I Ever Forgive
I'm sorry
that your expectations were to high.
I'm sorry
but with demands like that I can't comply.
I'm an imperfect human being.
So sue me.

I'm sorry
that your contradictions threw me off.
I'm sorry
but as for words I'm at a loss.
What makes you think you're so special?
That's mental.

Tell me how can you live like this
knowing full well what you did?
Tell me now that you've hurt me bad
why should I ever forgive?

I'm sorry
I wasn't present when you needed help.
I'm sorry
but boy I cannot even help myself.
I guess lousy's the word to describe me.
That's funny!

Tell me how can you live like this
knowing full well what you did?
Tell me now that you've hurt me bad
why should I ever forgive?

Don't make yourself out as the victim.
Fool me once but repeatedly trick them.
You've won their hearts but broken mine.
Your fools gold ain't worth a dime.

Tell me how can you live like this
knowing full well what you did?
Tell me now that you've hurt me bad
why should I ever forgive?

Tell me how can you live like this
knowing full well what you did?
Tell me now that you've hurt me bad
why should I ever forgive?

Tell me now that you've hurt me bad
why should I ever forgive?
Track Name: I Once Was Told
I once was told to be strong.
I once was told to keep my chin up.
I once was told to move on.
I once was told to try and cheer up.

But they were wrong.
They were wrong.

I once was told I'd be fine.
I once was told that I could do it.
I once was told things take time.
I once was told that I'd get through it.

That was a lie.
A big lie.

You don't know what you're talking about.
You don't know my pain.
You have no clue how I'm feeling right now.
You and I, we're not the same.

I am so tired of being strong.
I have no strength to keep my chin up.
It's hard to want to live on.
It hurts so much can't help but tear up.

I've been sad for too long.
Track Name: Tell Lindsey
I'm gonna sit here for a while
and think about how things used to be.
I'll let my mind wander for miles
'til I've found a familiar place for me.

I don't know where on earth I'm going,
or what I'll do when I finally know.
There is no sign that is showing
where in the blazes I should go.

Tell Lindsey that I can't come home.
Tell Lindsey I am far too gone.

As far back as I can remember
she was the one who kept me sane.
But when she left back in December
I might as well have lost my brain.

Tell Lindsey I have lost my way.
Tell Lindsey that she should have stayed.

I didn't think that I could do it,
couldn't make it through the night,
but I think that I'll get through it.
Everything will be alright.

I'm gonna sit here for a while,
think about how things are gonna be.

Tell Lindsey I will be just fine.
Tell Lindsey I finally see the light.

Tell Lindsey I will be okay.
Tell Lindsey I am on my way.
Track Name: Ready To Love (I'm Not Sure)
Coco Chanel
that handbag you gave me,
I read the card
it said "To My Baby"

You know my taste
and you know my style.
You know my shoe size
and my favorite aisle.

You treat me nicer
than boys ever have.
You buy me things
when I didn't ask.
You pull me close and
squeeze me like you do.
But I'm not sure if
I'm ready to love you.

You've got a type of class
I've never seen,
Your face, your voice, your laugh,
you're something from a dream.

You treat me nicer
than boys ever have.
You buy me things
when I didn't ask.
You pull me close and
squeeze me like you do.
But I'm not sure if
I'm ready to love you.

Wise men say you can't buy me love
I guess they never met you.
You may think that you're not enough
but Baby, all I need is you.

You treat me nicer
than boys ever have.
You buy me things
when I didn't ask.
You pull me close and
squeeze me like you do.
But I'm not sure if
I'm ready to love you.

You treat me nicer
than boys ever have.
You buy me things
when I didn't ask.
You pull me close and
squeeze me like you do.
But I'm not sure if
I'm ready to love you.
Track Name: uoY roF tiaW I lliW
(Original lyrics)

Times are getting hard
with every passing hour.
My mind is running wild
with thoughts of us together.
And oh, what now?

I'm never one to fight
I'm always one to tremble.
But I cannot back down for
I fear I'll disassemble
your heart.

Will I wait for you?
Will I promise to be true
for all time?
Will I never let you go
and tell you more than before
I love you?

I cannot read your mind
so I guess you'll have to tell me,
am I just flying blind
or are we really something?
Let's hope we are.

Will I wait for you?
Will I promise to be true
for all time?
Will I never let you go
and tell you more than before
I love you?

I know I'm not perfect,
at least not like you.
But I know, you're so worth it
and I hope you know too.

Times are getting hard
but I know we can do it.
Alone we're not that strong
but together we'll get through it.
I know.

Oh, I will wait for you.
And I promise to be true
for all time.
I will never let you go,
I'll tell you more than before
I love you.
