Track Name: Wake Up (Rock Version)
Wake Up

Wake up, you need to wake up
Wake up, you have to stand up
And face the light of day
No room for yesterday
And see the game that’s played
Don’t throw your life away

Stand up, you need to stand up
And stay up, you have to wake up
You need to realize
What’s better left behind
Cause life is not a crime
Don’t let it pass you by

It’s a new day
Find a new way
Somebody else to push you through
Cause yesterday
Was thrown away
And there is nothing you can do

It’s face off, you need to be tough
And jump off, you have to take off
The life you’re looking for
Is not here anymore
And this you know for sure
So what are you waiting for?

What lays ahead
You should not dread
You’ll find the strength inside of you
If you believe
You can achieve
You know exactly what to do

And it won’t be easy
But if it was would it mean anything?
And if your life is somewhere else
Then take the ride to where it’s leading you

So wake up, cause your time is up
And step up, now you have to catch up
Just take it step by step
You won’t live life is regrets
The road in front of you
Knows where it’s taking you
The sky is not too high
When you’re ready to shine
So wake up
Mmmmm
Track Name: One Million Dollar Baby
Once upon a time, there was a baby
Who’s mother accepted one million dollar of money
That her father had paid, to keep her away
Making sure she was safe but out of the way

Happily ever after, it was not for her
Cause her mother died when she was six
What would happen to the million dollar baby
Cause nobody knows her story

Money did what money does
Nobody cared who she was
So she got fed up and she ran away
And she found her way down in LA

In the city of Angels
The city of dreams
Where in fairy tell you can believe
What are you gonna do?
Where are you heading to?
Are you worth every penny he's paid for you?
The million dollar baby

He always wanted what he thoughts other had
A family life he never had
So when he lost it all, what he thought was eternal
He could not believe life could be so cruel

So when he heard the news that he had a kid
He didn’t think about what she could bring to him
He simply thought of what he had just lost
That’s when he asked himself what it could cost

In the city of Angels
The city of dreams
Where in fairy tell you can believe
What are you gonna do?
Where are you heading to?
Are you worth every penny he paid for you?
The million dollar baby

As the years went by, he got back on track
All the scars had healed and love came back
He thought about the million memories he never got
And he found his daughter who’d paid the cost

In the city of Angels
The city of dreams
Where in fairy tell you can believe
Have you found you way back home?
Now you know you’re not alone
You know there’s always someone you can count on

In the city of angels
The city of dreams
Have you found a fairy tell you can believe?
In the city of angels
Track Name: You're My Brother
I’m so sorry I let you down
I’m so tired of being around
Our friendship is dying
Why are you drowning?

This time you’ll listen to me
I can’t, I can’t get through, through to you
You’re so far, far from here
Dying wouldn’t help anything

And you
You suffer on your own
You suffer on your own
And I won’t let you down
You’re my brother

You’re my brother
I suppose it doesn’t really matter
You really think that you’re alone
You always, you always stay, always stay on your own

Now it’s just you and I
What do you want? You cannot die
Let me help, I can understand you
Give me the chance, let me get through to you

And you
You suffer on your own
You suffer on your own
And I won’t let you down
You’re my brother

What you think matters to all of us
Don’t you think we had enough death in 18 months?
I can’t close my eyes at night
Believe me, I won’t let you die

And you
You suffer on your own
You suffer on your own
And I won’t let you down
You suffer on your own
You suffer on your own
And I won’t let you down
You’re my brother
You’re my brother
You’re my brother
Track Name: Never Again
You got in my way
And all I want is to walk away
I don't know what to say
I cannot lie and tell you to stay
You've really been a pain
Someone I've got know in vain
I wish you'd take a train
And I would never see you again

Again, not again...Never again...

Everytime you've been with me
The only place I didn't want to be
Now I'd drown you in the sea
With my own hands, I can set you free
And I can't take the blame
If you end up in front of a train
I wish you'd walk away
I never told you you could stay...

Oh stay, I want you to stay... away.

I can never deal with you, you have gone too far
Might as well just reach out for the stars
(And I don't) ever really need to know about your deepest thoughts
They make me feel like we're falling apart

You know...
How to make me feel I have to let you go
You're blabling all the time
You speak in tongues I don't understand
I don't think I can wait
I waste my time and there's no time to waste
You never seem to care
You don't even see what you've done to me...

But now I'm free, free to be, whatever I wanna be...

I can never deal with you, you have gone too far
Might as well just reach out for the stars
(And I don't) ever really need to know about your deepest thoughts
They make me feel like we're falling apart

And you won't be, near me, ever again...

I can never deal with you, you have gone too far
Might as well just reach out for the stars
(And I don't) ever really need to know about your deepest thoughts
They creep me out, I don't wanna play that part
Never again... never again....
Track Name: Want You Back (Rock Version)
There was a time when I had nothing to say
There was a time when I was dead
During that time, that's when I met you
And now I'm coming back for you

You brought me back to life
With the light that's in your eyes
And the words that you told me
I could feel that they were real

And I can't hide anymore
And I can't die no more

I just want you back
Want you back

Every time when I feel I loose my mind
All I can think of is you
There's not much time left for me to see things through
And try to make it up to you

Broken hearts take time to heal
But it don't change how I feel
Cause the words you said to me
I know that they were meant to be
And I can tell that they were real

And I can't hide anymore
And I can't die no more

I just want you back
Want you back
Want you back

I want to see you by my side to fight this war
But you're not here anymore
I want to tell you one more time before the fall
What you've been through, I'd do the same for you

And I can't hide anymore
And I can't die no more

There was a time when I thought I lost my mind
Track Name: Just For You
It’s been too long
But it’s not the time today
It’s not the time to turn around and walk away

I’ve waited too long
I needed you to stay
It’s not a game I like to play

I needed you to take my fears away
I needed you to make me feel safe
And if I could I would explain to you
How much I care, oh I care about you

Whatever I do
Doesn’t seem to be enough
And that’s for sure the hardest part of it all

Whatever I say
You’ll leave me anyway
You all end up walking away

I needed you to like me as I am
Seems like something no one can do
And if I could I would just scream to you
Love me, will you love me, love me too

And I have hope that you still can see
That I’ll always be here for you
I wish you knew how much I care about you
Can you hear me? Can you hear me? Can you hear me?
I love you
I love you
I love you
I love you
Track Name: My Voice
It’s not a choice
I have no choice
Only the chords
Can let you hear the sound
Of my notes playin’
Of my notes rockin’
And my heart’s wishin’
That you could hear my voice and turn around

I want to believe (I do believe)
That somehow you can see me for who I am

You’d see a girl (only a girl)
Who’s worth the time it takes to know her world

Ohhh
You are not a friend
Ohhh
But you’re always, always in my head

I’m in the crowd (stuck in the crowd)
If I want you to find out I gotta shout

And I believe (I do believe)
If you get to know my name it won’t be in vain

Ohhh
You are not a friend
Ohhh
Still you’re always, always in my head

It’s not a choice
I have no choice
Only the chords
Can let you hear the sound
Of my notes playin’
Of my notes rockin’
And my heart’s wishin’
That you would hear the sound and turn around
Turn around I’m standin’ in the crowd
Can you hear my voice?
Track Name: I Love You
I should have told you right away
I shouldn't have wait for a better day
Cause they don't come so often
And it could have taken forever

I could have found a better way
To explain about yesterday
Sometimes the words are hard to find
Scared to tell you how I feel inside

And the reason why
Is that I love you
Yes I do
I love you

You know I care about you more than life
And I would never want to make you cry
Or make you doubt my sincerity
I only want us to be happy

I think about you all the time
Even though I'm not there to make you smile
I never wanted to tell a lie
But the truth is sometimes hard to find

All I know is I
I love you
Yes I do
I love you

I could have told you a thousand time
And I can't tell you why I did not try

I just know that I
I love you
Yes I do
You know I do
I love you
Track Name: Lullaby For An Angel
It’s my lullaby for the angel by my side
Tonight
It’s been a long time since I had you in my life
Alive
I’ve been waiting for so long to hold your hand
Again
And at this moment I just wish we had the time
To spend again

Tonight, I just need to hold you tight
Tonight, I can feel your heart next to mine
Tonight, I just need to have you right by my side and sing to you

The lullaby of my life with you
This lullaby I will sing to you
It can go on and on
I will sing my heart to you
For you to know that I love you

You’re a treasure, I’ve been blessed to know your name
Your strength
Is a reminder that I just have to remain strong and carry on

Cause tonight, I can hold your hand in mine
Tonight , I can see the sparkle in your eyes
Tonight, I can have you right by my side and sing for you

The lullaby of my life with you
This lullaby I will sing to you
It can go on and on
I will sing my heart to you
For you to know that I miss you
I miss you
I miss you

I never knew it was the time
You were gone in the blink of an eye
I never knew how to say goodbye to you
To you

I sing this lullaby for the angel by my side
Tonight
I’ll never know why you had to go so far away
Why you couldn’t stay

But tonight, I just need your hand in mine
Tonight, I can feel your heart next to mine
Tonight, I just need to have you right by my side and one last time

Sing this lullaby of my life with you
This lullaby of my love for you
It will go on and on
Please just take it away with you
And then I’ll know
That I’m with you
I’m with you
I’m with you
