Track Name: I.O.U.
CHORUS:
A-E-A-E-I-O-U-U I SOMETIMES CRY
A-E-A-E-I-O-U-U I SOMETIMES CRY

YOU TELL ME THAT YOU LOVE ME EVERYDAY
WHEN WE’RE ALONE I REALLY FEEL IN LOVE
BUT WHEN WE’RE OUT WITH FRIENDS I SEE A CHANGE
YOU TREAT ME BAD, I FEEL LIKE SECOND BEST
I WANT YOUR LOVE (I WANT YOUR LOVE)
GIVE ME YOUR LOVE BOY (GIVE ME YOUR LOVE)
THAT’S HOW I FEEL, I WANT IT TO BE REAL
I WANT YOUR LOVE (I WANT YOUR LOVE)
GIVE ME YOUR LOVE BOY (GIVE ME YOUR LOVE)
I NEED YOUR TOUCH AND I, I OWE YOU SO MUCH

CHORUS

DO YOU REALIZE SOME THINGS YOU SAY
I KNOW YOU DO, IT MAKES ME SO CONFUSED
I’M SURE THIS AINT THE WAY THAT LOVE SHOULD BE
LET’S GET IT RIGHT, IT’S MUCH TOO GOOD TO LOSE
I WANT YOUR LOVE (I WANT YOUR LOVE)
GIVE ME YOUR LOVE BOY (GIVE ME YOUR LOVE)
THAT’S HOW I FEEL, I WANT IT TO BE REAL
I WANT YOUR LOVE (I WANT YOUR LOVE)
GIVE ME YOUR LOVE BOY (GIVE ME YOUR LOVE)
I NEED YOUR TOUCH AND I, I OWE YOU SO MUCH

CHORUS

BOY, I KNOW I OWE YOU SO MUCH
BUT CAN’T I PAY YOU
WITH JUST, WITH JUST ONE TOUCH
AND BOY, I KNOW YOU CARE
I’LL NEVER LOVE ANOTHER
TO THAT, TO THAT I’LL SWEAR

CHORUS
Track Name: Losing Your Grip
THE WORLD MIGHT TRY TO TELL YOU
“YOU CAN’T HAVE IT ALL, THE HIGHER THAT YOU CLIMB, THE GREATER YOU MIGHT FALL”
THEY’LL TRY TO STOP YOU DANCIN’
TELL YOU TO STAND STILL
BUT DON’T BELIEVE A WORD-
JUST GO WITH HOW YOU FEEL
WHEN YOU’RE…

CHORUS:
LOSING YOUR GRIP
IT’S FANTASTIC
LET GO

THE WORLD IS GOING TO TELL YOU
YOU CAN'T HAVE IT ALL, "THE HIGHER THAT YOU CLIMB ,THE GREATER YOU MIGHT FALL”
SO WHEN YOU REACH YOUR STARS
YOUR HEART WILL NOT STAND STILL
BUT DON’T YOU BE AFRAID
JUST GO WITH HOW YOU FEEL
WHEN YOU’RE…

CHORUS
Track Name: Unicorn (Magic)
I RODE A UNICORN WITHOUT A HORN
WE MET AT DAWN ON THE LAWN
HE SAID 'GET ON' THEN WE WERE GONE
BEFORE THE SUNSHINE WAS REBORN
WE TRAVELLED WIDE AND VERY FAR
THEN HE GOT TIRED AND SAID 'GET OFF'
TO ROCK IT RIDE, WE STOLE A CAR
AND DROVE ALL NIGHT, TO BEAT THE LAW
JUST US TWO, YEAH YEAH
ME AND YOU-OOHH, YOU

CHORUS:
MAGIC
THEY'RE AFRAID CUZ THEY DON'T UNDERSTAND IT
EVERYDAY WITHOUT IT IS JUST TRAGIC
LIVING IS NOT LIVING, ITS JUST HABIT
YOU NEED SOME MAGIC
MAGIC
THEY'RE AFRAID CUZ THEY DON'T UNDERSTAND IT
EVERYDAY WITHOUT IT IS JUST TRAGIC
LIVING IS NOT LIVING, ITS JUST HABIT
WITHOUT YOUR MAGIC

BETWEEN ME AND THIS UNICORN, A BOND WAS FORMED
WE BROACHED THE STORM, HE KEPT ME WARM
AND EVERY MORN I WAS ADORNED
WITH ALL THE LOVE HE HAD GOING ON
A LIVING DREAM, A FANTASY
A BONNIE AND CLYDE ROBBERY
COAST TO COAST, JUST HIM AND ME
TILL WE WERE HELD UP BY THE SEA
JUST US TWO, YEAH YEAH
ME AND YOU-OOHH, YOU

CHORUS

SOME SAY YOU'RE JUST A DREAM
OHH
CUZ THEY HAVE NEVER SEEN
YOUR

CHORUS
Track Name: Synth City
WATCH IT RISE AND SHINE
GLEAMING THROUGH THE DARKNESS
IT'S BIGGER THAN THE BOTH OF US
BUT NOT WHEN WE'RE TOGETHER

CHORUS:
DON'T LISTEN TO THE BEAUTIFUL LIES
THAT THEY TOLD YOU FROM THE START
AS A WAY TO HOLD YOUR HEART,
NOW I - WANT YOU TO COME OUT HERE WITH ME
AND WE'LL DANCE ALL THROUGH THE STREES
SPREADING LOVE AND SHINING AY YEAH

NOW THE CITY KNOWS YOUR NAME
AND JUST HOW YOU PLAY YOUR GAME
WHEN YOU'RE CRUISING FOR A RIDE OUT ON THE HIGHWAY
WHEN THE BREEZE BLOWS THROUGH THE LEAVES
AND THE TREES ARE ALL IN SEASON
AND THE SUN IS OUT REFLECTING FROM THE HIGHEST POINTS OF LIGHT
THE BEAUTY'S NOT MISTAKEN
TAKE A PICTURE WITH YOUR MIND
HOLD THE MEMORY IN TIME AND OAH
DON'T JUST STAND THERE WAITING
FOR TOMORROW TO ARRIVE
WHEN TODAY WE'RE SO ALIVE IN SYNTH CITY

CHORUS

AND THE BIRDS BY THE WATERFRONT
FLY HIGH BUT NOT AWAY
CUZ EVEN WHEN THEY LEAVE
THEY WILL BE BACK SOMEDAY
AND THIS I TELL YOU SO
SO IN YOUR SOUL YOU'LL ALWAYS KNOW
I'M NEVER FAR AWAY FROM YOUR HEART

LA LA LA LA LA LA LA AHHH

CHORUS
Track Name: Neon Sprites
LOVE IS DARKNESS
DISTURBED BY A WHIFF OF OZONE
PLUGGED IN, TURNED ON
A NEW PLACE FOR YOU TO CALL HOME
HOPE IS YOUR SMILE
BRIGHTER THAN A THOUSAND SUNS
BINARY BASIC
THE SUM OF MORE THAN ZEROS AND ONES
YOU WERE THE PIECE TO MY MISSING PUZZLE
BEFORE I EVEN KNEW
THAT MISSING PIECE LEFT ME OH SO PUZZLED
BUT I JUST NEEDED YOU

CHORUS:
INNOCENCE AND NEON SPRITES
SPELL YOUR NAME IN BETWEEN THE LIGHTS
YOU'VE GOT ME DEAD TO RIGHTS
AND I'M GONE...

MY HEART'S BEATING
MORE THRILLING CUZ THIS ISN'T A GAME
YOUR SMILE'S FLEETING
I'M HOPING THAT YOU'RE FEELING THE SAME
I HAD TO SAY SOMETHING NOW OR NEVER
AND CATCH THAT GLIMPSE IN YOUR EYES
CUZ IF I SAID NOTHING THEN WE WOULD NEVER
HAVE TRULY REALIZED OH HOH!

CHORUS

YOU TURN ME ON, I'M SO GONE
YOU'RE THE LIGHT THAT TURNS, TURNS ME ON

CHORUS
Track Name: Into The Future
THEN IT HIT ME LIKE A ROCKET
TAKING OFF FOR DISTANT PLANETS
NOW I REALIZE THAT I'VE VIEWED MYSELF
THROUGH YOUR EYES

CHORUS:
MY LIFE IS SLOWING CHANGING
IT'S CHANGING FOR THE BETTER
EVERY STEP A NEW DIRECTION
TAKING ME WHERE I WANT TO GO
MY LIFE IS SLOWING CHANGING
IT'S CHANGING FOR THE BETTER
LOOKING BACK I TRACE MY FOOTSTEPS
TO A PLACE I CAN UNDERSTAND

THROUGH MY YEARS OF FEAR AND LOATHING
NEVER KNOWING ALWAYS SUPPOSING
SOMEHOW THE REFLECTION I BECAME
WAS HOW YOU SAW ME
IT'S NOT HARD TO SAY I MISS YOU
OH MY GOD, I MISS YOU
THERE'S NO PLACE OR SPACE IN TIME THAT
MY HEART CAN FORGET YOU

CHORUS

HERE I COME
INTO THE FUTURE, INTO THE FUTURE
INTO THE FUTURE, YEAH
HERE I COME
HERE I COME
INTO THE FUTURE, INTO THE FUTURE
INTO THE FUTURE YEAH
HERE I COME
Track Name: Look To Your Heart
LOOK
YOU CAN FEEL ME
I AM WITH YOU
SLOWLY BEATING
WHILE YOU BREATHE
TAKE IN DEEPLY
CLOSE YOUR EYES
CAN YOU SEE ME?

CHORUS:
LOOK INTO YOUR SOUL
YOU’RE BEAUTIFUL
AND YOU SHOULD KNOW
THAT I WILL BE YOUR SPARK
AND NEVER STOP
WHENEVER YOU NEED ME, LOOK TO YOUR HEART

LOOK
YOU CAN FEEL ME
I AM WITH YOU
SLOWLY BEATING
WHILE YOU BREATHE
TAKE IN DEEPLY
CLOSE YOUR EYES
CAN YOU SEE ME?

IT STARTED THE SPARK
EMBERS DID GROW
YOU ARE THE HEAT
I AM THE GLOW
TOGETHER WE BURN
OUTTA CONTROL
NOW WE WANT THE WHOLE WORLD TO KNOW

CHORUS
Track Name: Digital Life (RWR Remix)
CHORUS:
HEY, YOU GOT IT
LIVE THE WAY YOU WANT IT
PROJECT IT ON THE BIG SCREEN
DIGITAL LIFE
HEY, YOU GOT IT
GO AHEAD AND FLAUNT IT
PROJECT IT ON THE BIG SCREEN
DIGITAL LIFE

WE STAY CONNECTED VIA ARTIFICIAL MEANS
THE WORLD SURROUNDS IN AN ARTIFICIAL SCENE
THE HANDS OF FATE BECOME THE TOOLS OF THE MACHINE
THAT TRY TO CHANGE US INTO ARTIFICIAL BEINGS
BUT LIFE IS SUCH A STRANGE GAME
ALWAYS CHANGING
YOU NEVER LIVE THE SAME DAY TWICE SO…

CHORUS

FORGET THE FUTURE IF YOU DON’T REGARD YOUR PAST
WE’VE GOTTA HOLD ON TO WHAT’S LEARNT AND MAKE IT LAST
ONLINE IS FINE, BUT OUTSIDE IS STILL A BLAST
DON’T LOSE YOUR HEART AND SOUL, YOU’RE MOVING TOO FAST
BUT LIFE IS SUCH A STRANGE GAME
ALWAYS CHANGING
YOU NEVER LIVE THE SAME DAY TWICE SO…

CHORUS

DON’T LOSE YOURSELF, OH NO NO, HEY!
(AHHHHHS)
DON’T LOSE YOURSELF (x8)

CHORUS
Track Name: More Time
OH OH
MAYBE I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN
THIS IS HOW’D GO
BREAKIN’ BAD BREAKIN’ BAD
ALL AROUND ME
SITUATION CRITICAL
I’M THE ONLY ONE
ALIVE IT CAN’T BE SO
WHO WAS IN CONTROL
EVEN THOUGH I CAME UP WITH THIS PLAN
DAMN I WASN’T READY FOR THE REPERCUSSIONS
I THOUGHT I HAD THIS IN THE BAG
OOOOOH I WAS MISTAKEN
I SHOULDA TAKEN

CHORUS:
OH WE'RE JUST RUNNING OUT OF TIME
BETWEEN YOU AND ME
OH WE'RE JUST RUNNING OUT OF TIME
THAT’S ALL WE NEED

WELL NOW
TAKE MY SOUL OUTTA CONTROL
I AM READY
TO RISK IT ALL RISK ALL
FOR THE FINAL SHOT
LAY IT ALL ON THE LINE
NOW I’M TRUSTIN’ YOU
TO GIMMIE ALL YOU GOT
ARE YOU MAN ENOUGH?
REALLY WILLIN’ TO GO THE LAST MILE
ME AND YOU TOGETHER
OH I WISH WE HAD

CHORUS
Track Name: Reach For The Stars
THROUGH A HOLE IN SPACE
FROM A HOLY PLACE
CAME YOUR LOVELY FACE
STRUGGLING TO BE FREE
AND I CAN'T WAIT
TO GIVE YOU A TASTE
OF MY WARM EMBRACE
BABY COME HERE TO ME
BOTH CRYING IN THE MOMENT
WHEN YOU FIRST TOOK MY HAND
AND YOUR EYES FOREVER GOLDEN
MADE ME UNDERSTAND

CHORUS:
REACH FOR THE STARS
SHINING HERE ABOVE YOU
REACH FOR THE STARS
I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU

NEVER BE THE SAME
I'M SO GLAD YOU CAME
STILL DON'T KNOW YOUR NAME
BUT THAT'S ALRIGHT WITH ME
I'M GONNA HOLD YOU TIGHT
ALL THROUGH THE NIGHT
NEVER LET YOU OUT OF MY SIGHT

CHORUS

OOOOOH OOOOOHH
OOOOOH OOOOOHH
AND YOU SHOULD KNOW
YOU'LL NEVER BE ALONE
I'M TAKIN YOU HOME - OH - 'OME

CHORUS

YES I WILL
Track Name: No Escaping
WE ALREADY KNOW
THAT YOUNG LOVE IN BLOOM
MAY BE DOOMED INTO OBLIVION
SO WHAT WE SHOULD DO
AT LEAST I ASSUME
IS RUN AWAY FROM EACHOTHER RIGHT NOW
BUT HOW
CAN WE
RUN FROM OUR HEARTS
RUN FROM OUR SOULS
RUN FROM OUR DESTINY
HOOO HOOOH
OUR DESTINY

CHORUS:
THERE'S NO ESCAPING FROM LOVE
IT'LL GET YOU
IT'LL CATCH UP TO YOU EVERYTIME
JUST WHEN YOU THINK YOU'RE UNTOUCHED
IT'LL GET YOU
IT'LL CATCH UP TO YOU EVERYTIME

WHEN YOU'RE SO YOUNG
YEAH
DON'T RUN AWAY
DON'T RUN AWAY FROM ME

CHORUS

THIS IS LOVE
THERE'S NO ESCAPING
WHERE WOULD WE GO
YEAH
THIS IS LOVE

IT'LL GET YOU
IT'LL CATCH UP TO YOU EVERYTIME
Track Name: Miss You Myself
I LOOK AROUND AT WHAT I'VE GOT
AND I FEEL
THAT I'M IN CONTROL OF ALL I SEE
MAYBE OR NOT
I TAKE THE BURDEN AND THE LOAD
I DON'T SEE NOBODY ELSE SHARING THE WEALTH
AND SO I THOUGHT...

CHORUS:
I BUILT THE WALL TO SHOW THE WORLD
THAT I COULD KEEP YOU OUT
SAID I DON'T NEED NO ONE ELSE
AND NOW THAT WALL HAS LEFT ME ALL ALONE
AND THERE'S NO DOUBT
BECAUSE I MISS YOU MYSELF

I BUILT THIS WALL TO SHOW THE WORLD
THAT I WAS POWERFUL
LIKE I DON'T SEE NO ONE ELSE
AND NOW THIS WALL HAS WALLED ME IN
AND LEFT ME ALL ALONE
I REALLY MISS YOU MYSELF

I MADE A PROMISE TO STAY STRONG
BUT NOW I'VE BLOCKED THE LIGHT FROM MY EYES
IGNORED MY HEART BECAUSE OF SPITE
THAT'S NOT THE WAY I WANNA LIVE
THERE'S NO HAPPY ENDING IN SIGHT
WITHOUT YOU BECAUSE I...

CHORUS

I FEEL LIKE I HAVE MADE A GREAT MISTAKE
CUZ YOU AND I TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE
LOVE
