Track Name: Shanghai
Fire balls burn on the top of my head
Drowning in the night enough is said
Everybody's looking like they got what it takes to be my best friend
I've got the night to blame
Oh my god I think I'm gonna burn tonight, burn tonight

Oh oh oh I've seen you working hard all night and I'm on the other side
Oh oh oh I think We need a little time alone

Can we all just get that one shot tonight
Hopskotch it to the next spot in line
We've been stuck in underground Chinatown
Oh way oh way oh
We got Shanghai tonight

Blue eyes burn through the back of my head
But I can't remember who it was or what they said
Everybody's acting like they got what it takes to be a casanova Romeo be her mistake
Oh my god I think they're gonna burn tonight, they're gonna burn tonight

Oh oh oh I've seen you working hard all night and I'm on the other side
Oh oh oh I think We need a little time alone

Can we all just get that one shot tonight
Hopskotch it to the next spot in line
We've been stuck in underground Chinatown
Oh way oh way oh
We got Shanghai tonight

Oh no we've done it again
Lost sight of our good friend
Oh no we've done it again
This night will never end

Hips drifting side to side
Mine or yours I can't decide
What it takes to conversate
Here we go it's not too late

Can we all just get that one shot tonight
Hopskotch it to the next spot in line
We've been stuck in underground Chinatown
Oh way oh way oh
We got Shanghai tonight
Track Name: Sweet as a Dream
You bleed the black of your scars
You leave nothing to rest
Plotting all your demise
Just one shot to the chest
Thoughts lost in the wind
Unclear with revenge
With one thought in mind
You can try your best
Everyone was clear with what they had to say
What’s done is done now you’re left in the grey
Where are you now, where are you now

Hope to god to find some rest
Sweet as a dream I must confess
Can’t deny your gravity
Push and pull just like the sea

Sea, Gravity x2

You bleed the black of your scars
You leave nothing to rest
Plotting all your demise
Just one shot to the chest
Thoughts lost in the wind
Unclear with revenge
With one thought in mind
You can try your best
Now everything is clear with what we had to say
What’s done is don now you’re left in the grey
Where are you now, where are you now

Hope to god to find some rest
Sweet as a dream I must confess
Can’t deny your gravity
Push and pull just like the sea

Sea, Gravity x2

I let it go long ago
I sold my soul along with yours

Hope to god to find some rest
Sweet as a dream I must confess
Can’t deny your gravity
Push and pull just like the sea
Sea, Gravity x2
Track Name: What I Needed
I've been putting Up the walls so I can hide
I've been looking for myself and not my pride
I assume that they should recognize all of The signs
My world collapsed as I filtered through
The darkness that embraced the light the truth
I've held onto the hope but now I can't believe it's happening to you

Oh, what's to say when I know you're going away you're what I needed you're what I needed
Oooh oooh ooh ooh
Who's to say how I do what's it mean to you she's what I needed she's what I needed
Ooh ooh ooh ooh

I've been putting off the calls while I try
To figure out a better way tonight
Little did you know my heart is racing as I lie here waiting
To find the words to write
I have no intention but to see you smile
A loss for words comes easy in these times
Letting go of all you do is everything and anything

Oh, what's to say when I know you're going away you're what I needed you're what I needed
Oooh oooh ooh ooh
Who's to say how I do what's it mean to you she's what I needed she's what I needed
Ooh ooh ooh ooh

I’ve been waiting holding on
Learning time will still move on
With your love my heart beats strong but I won't, I won’t ever move on
Oh oh You've left your mark
I will never lose that spark

What's to say when I know you're going away you're what I needed she's what I needed

Who's to say how I do what's it mean to you she's what I needed she's what I needed

Oh, what's to say when I know you're going away you're what I needed you're what I needed
Oooh oooh ooh ooh
She's what I needed x4
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Track Name: Lucky
I'm feeling kind of lucky
When you touch me
It's driving me crazy
Hey you looker
Got me looking

I'm feeling kind of lucky
When you show me
That you sure as hell know me
Hey you looker
Got me looking

Oh my dear I can
Hear you call my name
Oh my dear I
Want you all the same

She always says
I may be here but I can't hear you

Where has my mind gone
Where has the time gone
It's all gone x2
Where has my mind gone
Where is the line drawn
It's all gone x2

I find it kind of funny
When you fool me
And you see right through me
Hey you looker
Got me looking

Oh my dear I can
Hear you call my name

You always say
I may be here but I can't hear you

Where has my mind gone
Where has the time gone
It's all gone x2
Where has my mind gone
Where is the line drawn
It's all gone
It's all gone
Track Name: She's Got the World
Let me tell you about a day
It might seem kind of strange
To talk about the one we loved
To celebrate the love she gave
Stripes and Tears fill the eyes
Onlookers will pass on by
Never to forget
The hearts of many
Will hold on tight
You're beautiful

The sun is arising
As we let her go
Her past will remind us
Now we paint it gold

She's got the world x3

Tears of joy fill the sky
The Stars employ you by there side
We must stay true in all we do
Not to trust the fakes and fools
As life moves on and drinks run dry
A broken heart is in disguise
Never to forget
The life you lived
Will shine in all our eyes
You're beautiful

The sun is arising
As we let her go
Her past will remind us
Now we paint it gold

She's got the world x3

Whoa whoa x6

The sun is arising
As we let her go
Her past will remind us
Now we paint it gold

She's got the world x3
Track Name: Tessa
She's got pearls
The only things in her world
Ask her how she feels
with diamonds on her heels

She jumped the gun
Tessa knows how to run
From all the things she's become
And now she's lost

Hurry you can see your breath fade into the night sky where diamonds hide

When you say that all is gone
Can you stand by all you've done
When you say
Just let it fade

She's got time
Misguided by the offbeat lies
Asking herself what do I have to lose

She's no fool
Tessa can't leave too soon
Surrounded by a life that
She would never choose

Hurry you can see your breath fade into the night sky where diamonds hide

When you say that all is gone
Can stand by all you've done
When you say
Just let it fade

She's got it all I wait on call
I wait on call
She takes her time I'm mesmerized
I'm mesmerized

When you say that all is gone
I hope that you can stand by all you've done
When you say
Just let it fade
