Track Name: Carnivores
You looked into me
So intensely that I wanted to leave
I wondered if the air between you and me was really so heavy
I could cut it with a knife.
Cut it with a knife
I could cut it with a knife

I told you all my secrets
They been dormant deep inside
When you thought I was so nice
Now you know I got a dark side
Yeah, you know I got a dark side

I felt the heat inside your chest
Tangled in my hot breath
Spastic and reactive
Our energies combined
I finally realized
What I've been missing all this time

CHORUS:
You're a wolf in the door
You finally got me cornered
Treat me like I'm yours
Baby, you're carnivorous too
From the look of the flesh
Bare between your teeth
I can only imagine
What you wanna do to me

So, come on, bring it, bring it on me
So, come on, bring it, bring it on me
So, come on, bring it, bring it on me
So, come on, bring it, bring it on me

Now you have me
Said you love me
I should feel happy
But I feel fear
Said don't be afraid
Let our love resonate
For the first time in ages I stayed

CHORUS

So, come on, bring it, bring it on me
So, come on, bring it, bring it on me
So, come on, bring it, bring it on me
So, come on, bring it, bring it on me

CHORUS

So, come on
Track Name: The Reasons
You asked me to list all the reasons why
You're beautiful on the inside, uh huh
I said I believe you're the kindest little girl
Your heart is made from golden flakes
and cherry pie.

So, say you'll stay
We can spend our rainy days
Just planning our escape
So, say you'll stay
We can spend the rest of our days
In love

I'll hold your hair when you drank too much
You'll comb mine back when we're making love
I call in late cause I can't stop staring in your eyes
Would you be mine?
I could list all the reasons why but nothing can compare
To this moment in time

Chorus

I'll tell you anyway
Your lips, they taste like pancakes
On a morning when the sun is pouring in
And I miss you when you're gone
Can't bare the thought of leaving
I'll hang my heart on your sleeve and
Hope you'll find the reasons that you'll say

Chorus
Track Name: Let Me Go
The sun is finally setting on the day
I feel it in the air to make a change
All these things are telling me
Well, I don't really know
But it feels like it's time to go

Maybe if you hold me in your arms
and rock me slowly
I'll feel it in my heart that it's ok
I know that it's so strange
and it's kind of out of character for me to say
But, I'm afraid.

So, let me go
Hold me tight
So I can finally take a leap
and make flight
Let me go
Well I know it's so hard to leave you
but the California summer never ends
and I'm just living this Peter Pan complex
I wouldn't have you any other way
but it's too hard for me to stay
So let me go

I know there's a plan for me
And I'll do what I can
To see that through
But I feel so content in where I am
And a part of me would wish this never ends
My feet placed on the ground
I need some bigger part of me
to understand
That things are out there waiting
And I can't waste this fleeting
Youth to stand as idle as I've been

Chorus

Well, I truly believe
That one day we will see
That our plans are about as permanent
As our prayers set in the sand
And the things we want from life
Might not work out as we planned
But on the other hand
I have to find out who I am
So let me go

Let me go x4

Chorus
Track Name: Lights
Won't you take me to LA?
To West Hollywood?
We'll go down the strip
Where the freaks live
Get a little flat
Small gigs for cash
We will play their game
Yeah, we'll make our name
If we could go anywhere,
We would go there
Cause, don't you wanna make it?
We could get famous

(Chorus) x2
Well, don't you wanna make it?
We could be famous
In Hollywood
In Hollywood

The lights shine bright
Pretty faces, right?
Where the shadows are
That's where fallen stars
Land on broken dreams
and the tail light gleams
And the broken hearts
Well, they played their cards.
I guess that's where the dust
It settles in the cracks
But that won't be us
No, that won't be us

Chorus x4

The price for fame
I'll pay it
By the underpass
Small gigs for cash
Well I guess it's where the dust
It settles in the cracks
But, that won't be us
No, that won't be us

Chorus

Won't you take me to LA?
To West Hollywood
We'll go down the strip
Where the freaks live

Chorus x2
Track Name: Young Blood
You asked me to remember this
Before it was even over
You crossed your heart by the beaten path
Before we hit the border
The winter air, I caught breath
I knew I'd see you again
But it was hard to say when

Our young blood ran cold
Our young blood ran cold
So, I fled to the coast
Down a dark highway road
When our young blood ran cold

We made our way through sunny days
The Mission to our kitchen
Some days I find myself wishing
We could go back for a minute
Where the open road wound so tight
Your fingers crushed the wheel
We welcomed every highway sign
As we traveled through the fields

Chorus

"Make it or break it
Our hearts will save us
Before the finish line,
I can taste it" you said.
"Make it or break it,
Our hearts will save us
Before the finish line,
I can take it," you said

The end before the beginning
You could say that our heart's not to blame
You were too good and I was too young
and our blood and flesh
The strength in our chests
Could take me away, ooh-ohh

Chorus
Track Name: Run
I watched you fly
Above the city lights
To pick a star
and you dropped it on my heart

Near or far
So we're never apart again
Don't go away
Please, won't you stay?
Just for awhile
Until I sleep
So, I won't have to watch you leave

Let's go back to then
(When, when, when, when?)
The blazing red skies
Asked us to fly in them
The oceans and stars
They were ours

Don't be afraid
(Run, run, run, run)
Don't be afraid
(Run, run, run, run)

I'll wait for you
Every night
Beneath the moon
I'll sing for you
'Cause, I know you can hear me
I know you can hear me, too
Track Name: Cross Your Heart
I would like to say
I really like the way
You speak,
The way you say my name
I would love to sing
Spend all my time making
Time to spend with you
And your sleeping eyes
At sunset

Chorus:
I would love to make
The sky fall on you
And you could catch the falling stars
Make a wish and cross your heart
Yeah, I would love to
I would love to

I would like to
Wake up next to you
Fall asleep to the easy
Sounds of you breathing

Chorus

I could love you
Like the skies do
I could love you
Like the stars do
Endlessly dreaming
Of ways to prove
This to you
Track Name: Alepines Poet
I saw you near the broken street lamps
And all the stars aligned.
The doves flew
Throughout the sky
Floating along
Their pristine white
Was the color
Of snow.
I missed you before you were gone
And I longed to see through your eyes
Through the glass
You made the world a canvas
The pictures tell the story of our lives
Moment after moment
Time has passed
We age as we race through a forest
That stands as old as time
Clicking heels along the pavement
And your laughter in my ear
You smelled like rain
As we chased the sunset

Do you remember?
I remember you...

The countless moments beneath the stars
Your heart on my heart
I fell into you
It's been ages since I saw you last
You walked in my life
From a dream
Your slender fingers brushed across my face
Caressing my skin
Your eyes inviting me in
You smelled like rain
And your words come into me
"Can you feel it?"
I heard the music
In your whispers
Beneath the trees,
You crashed into me
You made the time stand still
The stars would align for us
With your heartbeat on mine
With your heartbeat on mine
With your heartbeat on mine
With your hearbeat on mine

I fell into you.
