Track Name: &
Live young
Just be yourself
Don't be afraid of what people say
Crazy life
Emotions running deep throughout your veins
But it's all okay.
Track Name: i miss you.
I took you by the hand
Down to the airport, where I saw you land
Now you're departing
And my soul won't stop hurting
What can I do
For you to

Please, darling
Don't go
Don't leave me here all alone
Just waiting, waiting by the phone

Please, darling
Stay with me
Just don't get on that plane
Don't leave me here saying:

I miss you.

Babe are you gonna come to the airport with me like you said you would?
Yeah, of course
Good, cause I want you to
Yeah it'll be fine
I hope so
But you won't be there with me

Please, darling
Don't go
Don't leave me here all alone
Just waiting by the phone

Please, darling
Stay with me
Just don't get on that plane
Don't leave me here saying:

I miss you.
Track Name: Lost at Sea
Lost at sea
Ocean mind I don't know where I'm supposed to be
Here I stand
On a ship that doesn't know where it's supposed to land

Through the fog and through the rain
I feel that there's something out there
and it's driving me insane
it feels like we're going nowhere

On this broken ship of ours
Where we kissed each other's scars
We are drifting in the sea
Don't sink because of me

The striped sea
Broken glass, the lighthouse is calling out for me
Swim to shore
The water is in my lungs and I am crying out for more

Through the fog and through the rain
I feel that there's something out there
and it's driving me insane
it feels like we're going nowhere

On this broken ship of ours
Where we kissed each other's scars
We are sinking in the sea
Drown together, you and me

As the shadows hit the water
I don't want to hurt anymore
Breathing is becoming harder
I have reached the ocean floor

On this broken ship of ours
We used kissed each other's scars
We are sinking in the sea
Why did you have to leave me
Track Name: Evaporate
Cold lips on your shoulder
lying naked, while we smolder
our fingers, intertwined
the candlelight, red wine

Evaporate
Dissolve with me
Evaporate
Disintegrate and see

Rolling around the bedroom
Only light’s the moon
Biting into thighs
Moaning and soft cries

Evaporate
Dissolve with me
Evaporate
Disintegrate and see
Track Name: Survive
Hush
Don’t move a muscle
Don’t make a sound
Don’t let them catch you or they’ll put you in the ground
Don’t look behind you, over your shoulder
They’re following you but the trail is getting colder
The night is falling, your throat is getting tight
The monsters will find you and they’ll kiss you goodnight


Run
Run for your life
Don’t hesitate
Your sacrifice
Run for your
Run
Run from the light
do what it takes, takes to survive
Run for your life


And please
Don’t be afraid
Rest in my arms
When you’re with me you’ll come to no harm
You’re not on your own
And I promise you
They’ll leave us alone

Run
Run for your life
Don’t hesitate
Your sacrifice
Run for your
Run
Run from the light
do what it takes, takes to survive
Run for your life
