1. Take Me In

Go on Go on Go on
and seduce me
I can’t pretend no longer
this feeling’s taking me over now
I’m completely yours

Go on Go on Go on
I surrender
There ain’t no ego left to defend here
I can’t resist to go where your wild heart grows

Oh oh oh
Are you willing to play the game?
Are you ready to start again?
You got to let me know
Are you ready to go?
Oh oh oh
Are you willing to lose control
If you’re ready to begin:
Take me in

Go on Go on Go on,
I’ll reduce myself into
Nothing just to see how far
You can go on and on with temptation baby
You drive me crazy and everything is hazy
I’m completely yours

Oh oh oh
Are you willing to play the game?
Are you ready to start again?
You got to let me know
Are you ready to go?
Oh oh oh
Are you willing to lose control
If you’re ready to begin
Take me in

Make up your mind come on, come on
Don’t waste time
Jump on the train and don’t let it pass you by
You got to let me know

Oh oh oh
Are you willing to play the game?
Are you ready to start again?
You got to let me know
Are you ready to go?
Oh oh oh
Are you willing to lose control
If you’re ready to begin
Take me in

2. Love Song

Come on baby won’t you pick up the phone
Cause I’m here on my own in my private twilight zone
I can’t recall when I last had a laugh
and my friends are talking behind my back
They all worry about me when they go out without me
Cause I’m kinda stuck in a broken hearted state
But I don’t want to think that it’s too late
and I want to make things right

It’s a beautiful morning, the sun is shining down on me
And wherever you are now
Won’t you listen when I’m asking you to…

Hold on I’ll sing you a little love song
I promise to make it short and sweet
Do you like it, will you listen while I
Keep on singing a little love song
I hope it will make you stick with me
Do you like it, will you listen to me now

If I could get it on the radio
Make a hit on the air so you would hear it everywhere
And you would think that it is pretty good
‘till your friend told you and you understood that it’s me
And I am hoping for a new beginning
Cause I never saw that sign that says the end
And I would make you want to see me again
Oh excuse me I just fantasized

But if you happen to hear it
Won’t you listen when I’m asking you to…

Hold on I’ll sing you a little love song
I promise to make it short and sweet
Do you like it, will you listen while I
Keep on singing a little love song
I hope it will make you stick with me
Do you like it, will you listen to me

I’ll sing in the street and I’ll sing in the car
I’ll sing on the bus and I’ll sing at the bar
I’ll sing it to everyone you’ll ever meer
I’ll sing for the moon and I’ll sing for the stars
I sing it to Jupiter, Venus and Mars
And hopefully I’ll sing you back to me oh yeah

Why won’t you hold on I’ll sing you a little love song
I promise to make it short and sweet
Do you like it, will you listen while I
Keep on singing a little love song
I hope it will make you stick with me
Do you like it, will you listen to me now
Do you like it, will you listen to me now

3. Follow Me/Follow You

Sometimes in life
It can be hard
To figure out the right way

So many roads
You walk alone
Fighting to make it through the day

Lost in a maze
You try to go back
Wanting to find the right track

And when you’re up against the wall
I will stick with you through it all

Every time you break
I’ll break in pieces
Every time you fall
I’ll fall with you
At the end of every road
I will be there
In the darkest night
I’m shining through
Follow me and I’ll follow you

I know your pain
I see the tears
That you won’t show to anyone

I see your eyes
The hurt and the lies
No need to pretend it’s all right

Cause I’ve been there too
And I made it through
And I will be right beside you
You don’t have to face this world alone, no

Every time you break
I’ll break in pieces
Every time you fall
I’ll fall with you
At the end of every road
I will be there
In the darkest night
I’m shining through
Follow me and I’ll follow you

I’ll be your place to hide
I’ll be by your side
No matter what you do
I’ll be there for you
I’ll be there for you

4. On My Way

I want a picture in my pocket from the day we met
Remember when we drank too much
I want to carry it around with me
and show it off to everyone we meet
If that’s okay with you

I want to rent a plane and write our names across the sky
In big white fluffy letters
Or just whisper something silly in your ear
When we’re not supposed to laugh
If that’s okay with you
Is that okay with you
‘Cause you make it real

One of these days I’m gonna find you
Baby I’m on my way
Baby I’m on my way
I may be a step or two steps behind you
But, baby I’m on my way
Baby I’m on my way

I want to look at you from way across the room
And know exactly what you’re thinking
Every corner of your body
Every perfect imperfection I will know
If that’s okay with you

I want to take you on a thousand or more first dates
And everytime I make it better
Lie in bed with you for days on end
and never let you go
If that’s okay with you
If that’s okay with you
‘Cause you make it real

One of these days I’m gonna find you
Baby I’m on my way
Baby I’m on my way
I may be a step or two steps behind you
But baby I’m on my way
Baby I’m on my way

And when we’re grey and old
I’ll still be by your side
Warming your hands in mine
We’ll share the memories

You make it real
One of these days I’m gonna find you
Baby I’m on my way
Baby I’m on my way
I’m only a step or two steps behind you
Baby I’m on my way
Baby I’m on my way

I just want to lie with you
Share my life and die with you
Love you every single day Baby,
I’m on my way

5. Right This Time

Sun begins to chase the shadows
The wind starts playing with the candles
We can only run no place to hide

If there’s a place called inspiration
It’s the final destination
Meet me where the dark turns into light

Somewhere in between what’s wrong and right
On the edge of reason
We will run across the endless night
To find a deeper meaning
Don’t stop now
I’ll be right behind
To make sure
We will get it right this time

Goes by so slowly
All the things I got to know
All seem to disappear
The world is changing fast

City sirens in the distance
Shake this night into existence
Present slowly fading into past

Somewhere in between what’s wrong and right
On the edge of reason
We will run across the endless night
To find a deeper meaning
Don’t stop now
I’ll be right behind
To make sure
We will get it right this time
We will get it right this time, this time

So don’t stop now
I’ll make sure
We will get it right

Sun begins to chase the shadows
Wind defeated all the candles
Meet me where the dark turns into light

6. Truth Of The Matter

Home alone, Friday night
Counting down all city lights
Cause all that’s left
don’t seem to turn out right

Result of too much hangin’ round
I scream but don’t hear a sound
Need someone to bring my circus back to town

You said you’d be right over
You said you’d be the girl that sells the truth

But the truth of the matter is
I’m over you
The truth of the matter is
I’m over you
The truth is never far behind
I’d catch it if I could

To call this off, and start anew
Would be the sensible thing to do
So why do I still want to be your fool

You said you’d be right over
You said you’d be the girl that sells the truth

But the truth of the matter is
I’m over you
The truth of the matter is
I’m over you
The truth is never far behind
I’d catch it if I could

Girl someday soon
We’re gonna bend the rules

You said you’d be right over
You said you’d be the girl that sells the truth

But the truth of the matter is
I’m over you
The truth of the matter is
I’m over you
The truth is never far behind
I’d catch it if I could

The truth of the matter is
I don’t matter much to you

Oh no!

7. Dream With Me

Time and place are so unreal
It´s how we see the things or feel
You´re half a world away
But I can feel you near

You made your way right to my soul
Picked up the pieces and made me whole
Your presence seems so real
I close my eyes

Dream with me
Touch me baby
Dream with me

Move me like you used to do
I can see through the curtains of time
I can feel through the darkness of night

It’s real, don’t wake up
Don’t let the bright light fool you
Just dream with me

And all the lights that guide the way
Make all the other things turn grey
There’s too much to reveal
Just close your eyes and

Dream with me
Touch me baby
Dream with me

Move me like you used to do
I can see through the curtains of time
I can feel through the darkness of night

It’s real, don’t wake up
Don’t let the bright light fool you
Just dream with me tonight

And when we get to cloud nine
You’ll know just what to do
We’re gonne make the sun shine on through

Move me like you used to
Move me like you used to
Move me like you used to
Move me like you used to do

8. Broken Tonight

You see the world through your window
You don’t even go outside anymore
You only feel safe feeling hollow
You think your scars are too deep to be cured

But stay for a while
Let me hold you tonight
Just open your eyes you will see the light shine
You don’t have to be frozen
You don’t have to be broken tonight

You hide your heart in the shadows
So afraid to open up to anyone
But I can see your faded halo
And I can make it burn again, like the sun

If you stay for a while
Let me hold you tonight
Just-open your eyes you will see the light shine
You don’t have to be frozen
You don’t have to be broken tonight

Just stay for a while
Let me hold you tonight
Just-open your eyes you will see the light shine
You don’t have to be frozen
You don’t have to be broken
You don’t have to be broken tonight

9. Stay A Little Longer

You say you haven’t been yourself
Too long have you been on the shelf
Filling up with doubt
Well you may feel you’ve lost control
But tell me, who ever has it all figured out?

You need to get back on your feet
I’ll turn you upside down for you

Stay, stay a little longer
I will build you stronger girl it’s true
I’m not quite through with you
Stay, stay a little longer
I will fill the hunger girl it’s true

In the place you were before
Just bits and pieces on the floor
Like a jigsaw mix up
But I can put you back together
Cause I vividly remember
The way you were

It takes time to rearrange your mind
I’ll turn it inside out for you

Stay, stay a little longer
I will still the hunger girl it’s true
Oh, all of the things we’d do

What can I say?
You gotta understand
I feel the urgency to keep you near to me
Anyway nothing I rather do
Make you as good as new
All I need is you and one more day

Stay, stay a little longer
I will build you stronger girl it’s true
I’m not quite through with you
Stay, stay a little longer
I will fill the hunger girl it’s true

Oh, all of the things we’d do
Hmmmm…
