Track Name: Stars need the darkness
THIS YEAR HAS BEEN ONE HELL OF A YEAR
YOU'RE NOT QUITE SURE, HOW YOU'RE STILL STANDING HERE.
YOU CANT SEE THE CLOUDS FOR THE RAIN
YOU CANT SEE THE LIGHT THROUGH THE PAIN
BUT YOU WILL AGAIN, TRUST ME, YOU WILL AGAIN

LOOK TO THE SKY
EVEN THE STARS NEED THE DARKNESS TO SHINE

YOU SING A SONG OF HOW LIFE ONCE WAS GOLD
BUT NOW YOU'RE DONE, YOU SAY YOU'RE DONE, YOU'RE RUNNING OUT OF TIME, BUT NO

LOOK TO THE SKY
EVEN THE STARS NEED THE DARKNESS TO SHINE
Track Name: Ahead Only
WELCOME TO THE REAL WORLD
WHERE DREAMS ARE MEMORIES
I THINK I'LL PASS IF YOU DONT MIND
IT DOESN'T SOUND LIKE IT'S FOR ME

I'M HEADING FORWARD I'M NOT HEADING BACK
I GAVE IT ALL AND NOW I'M TAKING IT BACK
I'LL LAY MY HEAD DOWN TO REST AND THEN, AND THEN
I'M ONLY MOVING ON AHEAD

OPINIONS, THEY DON'T MEAN THAT MUCH TO ME
THOUGHTS WRITTEN DOWN OR SAID ALOUD
WE KNOW THAT NOTHING GOOD COMES FREE

I'M HEADING FORWARD I'M NOT HEADING BACK
I GAVE IT ALL AND NOW I'M TAKING IT BACK
I'LL LAY MY HEAD DOWN TO REST AND THEN, AND THEN
I'M ONLY MOVING ON AHEAD

EVERY STEP
(CANT STOP GOTTA KEEP MOVING)
OF THIS LIFE I'VE LED
(WON’T STOP NO TIME FOR SLOWING DOWN, DOWN, DOWN)
(CANT STOP GOTTA KEEP MOVING NOW, NOW, NOW)
I'M TAKING BACK

I'M HEADING FORWARD I'M NOT HEADING BACK
I GAVE IT ALL AND NOW I'M TAKING IT BACK
I'LL LAY MY HEAD DOWN TO REST AND THEN, AND THEN
Track Name: Losing game
THEY SAY THAT WE'RE IN THIS TOGETHER
BUT YOU AND I WE KNOW BETTER
WE KNOW THAT THEY DONT MEAN A SINGLE WORD THEY SAY

I'D LIKE TO HAVE A FACE TO FACE
I'D LOOK THEM IN THE EYE AND THEN I'D WALK AWAY
CAUSE I'VE GOT NOTHING TO SAY TO A MAN WITH NO SOUL TO SAVE

THEY DONT KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE
TO PLAY THE LOSING GAME, THE LOSING GAME

THEY STAND THERE ON THE TV SCREEN
DICTATING TO YOU AND DICTATING TO ME
WELL I'D LIKE TO SEE THEM SPEND A DAY IN OUR SHOES, THEY LOSE

THEY DONT KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE
TO PLAY THE LOSING GAME, THE LOSING GAME
THEY DONT KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE
TO PLAY THE LOSING GAME, THE LOSING GAME
Track Name: Forever anonymous
HERE WE GO, ONE MORE GO, ROUND THE MERRY-GO-ROUND
ONE MORE TRY, DO OR DIE, THAT'S THE WAY IT GOES DOWN
TAKE SOME TIME, SAY SOME LINES, TRY TO REEL IN THE CROWD
TURN THE LIGHTS DOWN, WE’LL TEAR THE HOUSE DOWN NOW

FOLKS LIKE US
FOREVER ANONYMOUS

YEAH YEAH, HEY HEY
I’VE GOT NOTHING LEFT TO SAY
A COUPLE MINUTES LEFT TO PLAY
THE AUDIENCE ARENT LISTENING ANYWAY

FOLKS LIKE US
FOREVER ANONYMOUS
Track Name: Lay it on me
OCTOBER TO DECEMBER, SUMMER SEEMS A LIFETIME AGO
TRYING TO REMEMBER, THE REASONS YOU SAID YOU WOULDNT GO

LAY, LAY IT ON ME
LAY IT ALL ON ME

YOU CAN BLAME IT ON THE WEATHER, BUT YOU KNOW
YOU CAN WRITE IT IN A LETTER, SIGNED BY THE SOUL

LAY, LAY IT ON ME
LAY IT ALL ON ME

LAY, LAY IT ON ME
LAY IT ALL ON ME
LAY, LAY, LAY IT ON ME
I'LL TAKE IT ALL FOR FREE, LAY IT ON ME
I'LL TAKE IT ALL FOR FREE, LAY IT ON ME
Track Name: Take it as it comes
I'VE BEEN LOOKING FOR SOME INSPIRATION
A SITUATION OR A STORY OR A PICTURE NEVER SEEN
I'VE LACKED A LITTLE MOTIVATION RECENTLY

I'VE BEEN HEADING IN A NEW DIRECTION
BUT COMPLICATIONS MAKE IT EASY JUST TO PACK IT UP AND LEAVE
I’M KNOWN TO BE A LITTLE IMPATIENT, YEAH THAT’S ME

WELL THEY SAY IF IT IS MEANT THEN IT WILL BE
BUT I'M NOT ONE TO SIT AND WAIT AND SEE

THEY SAY TAKE IT AS IT COMES
THEY SAY TAKE IT AS IT COMES AROUND
THEY SAY GOOD THINGS THEY COME TO THOSE WHO WAIT
BUT I HAVENT GOT THE TIME TO HANG AROUND
AND TAKE IT AS IT COMES

SLOWLY. JUST A LITTLE OUT OF REACH
BUT CLOSE ENOUGH THAT I CAN HEAR THEM LAUGH AT ME

THEY SAY TAKE IT AS IT COMES
THEY SAY TAKE IT AS IT COMES AROUND
THEY SAY GOOD THINGS THEY COME TO THOSE WHO WAIT
BUT I HAVENT GOT THE TIME TO HANG AROUND

AND TAKE IT AS IT COMES DOWN CRASHING TO THE FLOOR
LIKE A SHIP THAT NEVER MAKES IT TO THE SHORE

THEY SAY TAKE IT AS IT COMES
TAKE IT AS IT COMES AROUND
THEY SAY GOOD THINGS THEY COME TO THOSE WHO WAIT
BUT I HAVENT GOT THE TIME TO HANG AROUND
Track Name: Very own history
WELL I GUESS, I GUESS THAT LIFE IS A TEST.
AND YOU'RE FEELING LIKE YOU'VE FAILED.
BUT DONT FORGET, IT ISNT OVER YET.
ITS A WORLD FULL OF SURPRISES.

YOU AND ME, WE ARE EVERYTHING WE NEED TO BE.
YOU WILL SEE. WE'LL GO DOWN IN OUR VERY OWN HISTORY.

I UNDERSTAND, THAT ITS HARD TO UNDERSTAND.
BUT THERE IS NO MASTERPLAN.
SO PLACE A BET, YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU MIGHT GET.
IT'S A WORLD FULL OF SURPRISES.

YOU AND ME, WE ARE EVERYTHING WE NEED TO BE.
YOU WILL SEE, WE'LL GO DOWN IN OUR VERY OWN HISTORY.

I UNDERSTAND, THAT IT’S HARD TO UNDERSTAND.

YOU AND ME, WE ARE EVERYTHING WE NEED TO BE.
YOU WILL SEE. WE'LL GO DOWN IN OUR VERY OWN HISTORY.
WE'LL GO DOWN IN OUR VERY OWN HISTORY.
Track Name: Coming round
A HEAVY HITTING HEART BREAK.
A HEAVY HITTING HEART BREAK.
A HEAVY HITTING HEART BREAK, IN TWO.

EVERY BREATH THAT YOU TAKE.
TRYING TO MAKE IT THROUGH THE DAY.
REMINDS YOU THAT YOUR HEART ACHES.
IT'S BREAKING IN TWO.

DONT LET YOUR DEMONS BRING YOU DOWN.
YOU'RE NOT ALONE, YOU'RE NOT ALONE.
I’M COMING ROUND.

WIPE THOSE TEARS AWAY.
WIPE THOSE LONELY TEARS AWAY.
TOMORROW IS A NEW DAY FOR YOU.

DONT LET YOUR DEMONS BRING YOU DOWN.
YOU'RE NOT ALONE, YOU'RE NOT ALONE.
I’M COMING ROUND.

PLEASE, PLEASE REMEMBER.
THAT THIS WON’T LAST FOREVER, NO.

DONT LET YOUR DEMONS BRING YOU DOWN.
DONT LET THEM TURN YOU INSIDE OUT.
DONT LET YOUR DEMONS BRING YOU DOWN, DOWN, DOWN.
YOU'RE NOT ALONE, YOU'RE NOT ALONE.
I’M COMING ROUND.
Track Name: When I look at the world
WHEN I LOOK AT THE WORLD
IT SCARES ME TO DEATH
I WONDER HOW LONG IT WILL BE BEFORE NOTHING'S LEFT

WHEN I LOOK AT THE WORLD
I DON'T UNDERSTAND, HOW ALL THIS HATE AND DESTRUCTION IS PART OF THE PLAN

AS I WIPE THE DUST FROM MY EYES
I REALISE THERE'S NOWHERE LEFT TO HIDE

WHEN I LOOK AT THE WORLD
ALL THAT I SEE
IS HOW FAR WE ARE FROM WHERE WE NEED TO BE

AS I WIPE THE DUST FROM MY EYES
I REALISE THERE'S NOWHERE LEFT TO HIDE
Track Name: A beautiful sound
LITTLE MAN, WELCOME TO THIS LAND
I WILL SHOW YOU ALL THAT I CAN SO COME ON TAKE MY HAND
KEEP ASKING THE QUESTIONS LIKE WHO, AND WHY AND HOW?
LIFE IS A BEAUTIFUL SOUND

HERE WE STAND IN A WORLD FULL OF DEMANDS
I WILL DO THE BEST THAT I CAN TO BE THE BEST THAT I CAN
BUT DONT WALK TOO FAST SON, JUST STOP AND LOOK AROUND
LIFE IS A BEAUTIFUL SOUND

THE BIRDS IN THE TREES AND THE BREEZE BY THE SEA, THE WORDS THAT LET YOU KNOW, YOU'RE NOT ALONE IN THIS WORLD, NO YOU'RE NOT ALONE

SO KEEP ON ASKING THE QUESTIONS, YEAH STOP AND LOOK AROUND
LIFE IS A BEAUTIFUL SOUND
LIFE IS A BEAUTIFUL SOUND
