Track Name: Breathe
Breathe like it's your last breath
Live as though you don't fear death
You might as well fly than fall
You might as well try than stall

Cause life's not getting any longer
As the pull of time gets stronger
So breathe

Dance like it's your last dance
Love like it's your last chance
You might as well swim than sink
You might as well do than think

We all know we won't live forever
This is our time, it's now or never
So dance

Sing like it's your last song
Time is fleeting and we don't have long
You might as well laugh than cry
You might as well fail than never have tried

The years are passing by so fast
Once your future, now your past
So sing, dance, breathe
Track Name: Shadows On The Run
I know it's not always easy
Life can leave you hollow inside
Stripped down and defenseless on a hellish ride
Too many corners and angles
The path ahead obscure and unknown
But nothing is forever and you're not alone

See the shadows on the run
In the path of something better coming true
Winter's time is almost done and the light is pushing through
See the shadows on the run
See the future stretching out before you
In the golden summer sun there'll be nothing you can't do

I know you've been cold in the darkness
Chilled by every little mistake
Sometimes it feels like there's nothing more you can take
The wind is so bitter, the land is so hard
Stagnation is so easy to do
But nothing is forever and we'll see it through

See the shadows on the run
In the path of something better coming true
Winter's time is almost done and the light is pushing through
See the shadows on the run
See the future stretching out before you
In the golden summer sun there'll be nothing you can't do

We're ready to shine
We're ready, it's time
We're ready to shine

See the shadows on the run
In the path of something better coming true
Winter's time is almost done and the light is pushing through
See the shadows on the run
See the future stretching out before you
In the golden summer sun there'll be nothing you can't do
Track Name: Bitter Fruits
Meet me by the river
Underneath the willow tree
Where the bitter fruits are hanging
Bruised and lonely

And when you look at me, tell me what you see
Is it the girl that cried? Is it the girl that died?
And when you left me here, did you still hold me dear
Or was I just another player in your fantasy?
When you look at me, tell me what you see
Was I the girl who shared, or just the girl who bared?
And now you see me sleep with secrets that I'll keep
From now until forever locked inside of me

Take me to the water,
To the current cold and swift
Where the bitter fruits are hanging
Like a promise, like a gift

When you look at me, tell me what you see
Is it the girl that cried? Is it the girl that died?
And when you left me here, did you still hold me dear
Or was I just another player in your fantasy?
When you look at me, tell me what you see
Was I the girl who shared, or just the girl who bared?
And now you see me sleep with secrets that I'll keep
From now until forever locked inside of me

Leave me by the river
Where I feed the willow tree
Where the bitter fruits are growing
Bruised and lonely

When you look at me, tell me what you see
Is it the girl that cried? Is it the girl that died?
And when you left me here, did you still hold me dear
Or was I just another player in your fantasy?
When you look at me, tell me what you see
Was I the girl who shared, or just the girl who bared?
And now you see me sleep with secrets that I'll keep
From now until forever locked inside of me.

Meet me by the river
Where the bitter fruits grow
Track Name: Battlefield
Here on the battlefield we will take a stand
In the killing fields our test is close at hand
We won't be bound, we won't fear death
We'll hold our ground until our final breath

Those who went before us stained the good earth with their blood
And we who follow after feel their heartbeats in the mud
The hounds of war are coming, howling death, despair and rage
But our courage will sustain us as we meet them

Here on the battlefield we will take a stand
In the killing fields our test is close at hand
We won't be bound, we won't fear death
We'll hold our ground until our final breath

There's no honour in this bloodshed but some things must be done
As we tumble rank and file to never see the sun
Some may call us martyrs and some may call us fools
We're a band of angry comrades who remain unmoved

Here on the battlefield we will take a stand
In the killing fields our test is close at hand
We won't be bound, we won't fear death
We'll hold our ground until our final breath
Here on the battlefield we will take a stand
In the killing fields our test is close at hand
We won't be bound, we won't fear death
We'll hold our ground until our final breath
Track Name: Silence of the Stars
When the fears crawl to your door
When your demons are as close as friends
You know that we've been here before
The darkest hour before it ends

Tonight we'll leave it all behind, let the moonlight heal our scars
Tonight we'll leave it all behind in the silence of the stars

When the night is long and dark
And the shadow wolves are drawing near
All we need's the smallest spark
To catch alight and burn away the fear

Tonight we'll leave it all behind, let the moonlight heal our scars
Tonight we'll leave it all behind in the silence of the stars

On the razor's edge, hold me close, don't let me fall
On the razor's edge, hold me close, don't let me fall

Tonight we'll leave it all behind, let the moonlight heal our scars
Tonight we'll leave it all behind in the silence of the stars
Tonight we'll leave it all behind, let the moonlight heal our scars
Tonight we'll leave it all behind in the silence of the stars
Track Name: Thank You
I want to thank you, thank you, thank you
I want to thank you for letting me be free
I want to thank you, thank you, thank you,
I want to thank you for giving me the key

You've opened my eyes, where there were shadows, now there's light
Now I can see the truth of what's in front of me
I don't want to know your reasons, I don't have to know your why
Now I have got the knowledge that I need

I want to thank you, thank you, thank you
I want to thank you for letting me be free
I want to thank you, thank you, thank you,
I want to thank you for giving me the key

You've unlocked the door, I don't have to stay here anymore
I can survive, I don't need you to feel alive
When your mask fell shattered from you it exposed the core within
Now I can leave the fantasy behind

I want to thank you, thank you, thank you
I want to thank you for letting me be free
I want to thank you, thank you, thank you,
I want to thank you for giving me the key

I was blinded by the moon, until I saw the sun
Dazzled by your glory, now it tells a different story
I was yours, heart and soul. You had to let me go
Now our time is through, I've no regrets, I'm done with you

I want to thank you, thank you, thank you
I want to thank you for letting me be free
I want to thank you, thank you, thank you,
I want to thank you for giving me the key
I want to thank you, thank you, thank you
I want to thank you for letting me be free
I want to thank you, thank you, thank you,
I want to thank you for letting me be me
Track Name: Rubbish Fairy Tale
I was looking for a pot of gold
Had to settle for a pin
I dreamt of a knight in armour bold
Got a boy made out of tin

Ooh what a rubbish fairy tale
What a rubbish fairy tale

This happy-ever-after thing
Is so last hundred years
The poisoned-apple book of lies
Makes a mockery of tears

Ooh what a rubbish fairy tale
What a rubbish fairy tale

I won't guess your name and I won't let down my hair
I've kissed a thousand frogs and they're all still there
You can keep your slipper, you can keep your throne
All I want is a good book and a night at home.

Ooh what a rubbish fairy tale
What a rubbish fairy tale
What a rubbish fairy tale
What a rubbish fairy tale
Track Name: Windmills
A note on the mirror, written in steam
I can see clearly, through the glass nearly
A chink in your armour, patched up with glue
A smile sad as oceans, as you go through the motions

You're tilting again at impossible windmills
I'm helpless again as you fall to the night

A page in your diary, a hole in your heart
I understand partly, through the glass darkly
A word left unspoken, a thorn in your mind
You're turning away now, you've nothing to say

You're tilting again at impossible windmills
I'm helpless again as you fall to the night
You're tilting again at impossible windmills
I'm helpless again as you fall to the night
Track Name: Scarlet Casanova
Scarlet Casanova's got your heart pinned to his sleeve
He'll keep you close, so very close, so you can never leave
He wants your heart, he wants your soul
But mostly just your heart, that's not a metaphor
No

You better run, run, run, run
Run for your life from the man with the knife
Run, run, run, run
Run for your life from the man with the knife

Scarlet Casanova wants to keep you in his arms
He'l swear it once, he'll swear it twice, he doesn't mean you harm
Look closely at his wolfish grin, you'll see his dark desire
He's a liar
Ooh

You better run, run, run, run
Run for your life from the man with the knife
Run, run, run, run
Run for your life from the man with the knife

Scarlet Casanova'll be the last one that you see
He'll pull you close in his embrace and set your spirit free
So if you hear him knocking, don't open up your door
You'll be no more
No

You better run, run, run, run
Run for your life from the man with the knife
Run, run, run, run
Run for your life from the man with the knife
Run, run, run, run
Run for your life from the man with the knife
Run, run, run, run
Run for your life from the man with the knife
Track Name: Leave A Light On
I was lost, I was running
Found a corner I could hide in
Hoped the dark would never come for me
But my heart, it betrayed me
Ripped apart and then remade me
Now I'm not the girl I used to be

Leave a light on so the angels can find me
Leave a light on so the angels can find me

I was torn, I was broken
In the black, no-one to turn to
Standing faithless on that frozen ledge
Then you came, and you turned me
In the rain your handprints burned me
Left me spinning on that dizzy edge

Leave a light on so the angels can find me
Leave a light on so the angels can find me
Leave a light on so the angels can find me
Leave a light on so the angels can find me
Track Name: Amazing
Can't hardly breathe, I can't believe
That you are standing here with me
Everything I always wanted
You filled up my heart and tore apart
Every doubt that plagued me
Took away every question

You are the sun in my sky
You are the moon to my tide
You are the reason I believe
You are amazing to me

Each time we kiss, I can't resist
The promise implicit in your smile
We've the got the world at our feet
(The whole world at our feet)
I look in your eyes and to my surprise
I see my love reflected at me
It takes my breath away
(You take my breath away)

You are the sun in my sky
You are the moon to my tide
You are the reason I believe
You are amazing to me

See the magic in you, see the magic in me
See the magic of we
See the magic in me, see the magic in you
See the magic of two

You are the sun in my sky
You are the moon to my tide
You are the reason I believe
You are amazing to me
Track Name: Learning to Fly
The skies are clear now,
And I can see for miles and miles
No matter what is thrown at me
I turn the other cheek and I smile

Learning to fly, I can believe
That everything I've dreamt about is here inside of me
Learning to fly, spreading my wings
No longer tethered to the earth and petty gravity

The page is blank now,
But I can read the writing on the wall
So many tears, so many years
Of being afraid I might fall

Learning to fly, I can believe
That everything I've dreamt about is here inside of me
Learning to fly, spreading my wings
No longer tethered to the earth and petty gravity

I thought I had nothing left to learn
Perspective is everything from here at a distance
I thought that I'd have to wait my turn
Perspective is everything

The air is pure now
And distance is no further than my hand
Come share with me, share with me
The view of this green, pleasant land

Learning to fly, I can believe
That everything I've dreamt about is here inside of me
Learning to fly, spreading my wings
No longer tethered to the earth and petty gravity
Learning to fly, I can believe
That everything I've dreamt about is here inside of me
Learning to fly, spreading my wings
No longer tethered to the earth and petty gravity

Higher and higher
