Track Name: Black Roses
Black Roses

I see your reflection in the still water
Why have you come back to haunt me
Here and now
Clutching my chest
As the pain returns
The memory of you like salt on an open wound

Black roses why do you prick me with your crown
My spirit lying broken, upon the hallowed ground
Black roses why do you crown me with your thorns
I have given all I can I cannot give you anymore

I have cried out all my tears
My eyes are dry
There is nothing left for you my dear
I bled myself for you
Inside my panic room
The crimson of my love spilled on the floor like wine

Black roses why do you prick me with your crown
My spirit lying broken, upon the hallowed ground
Black roses why do you crown me with your thorns
I have given all I can I cannot give you anymore

You promised me forever, but forever came too soon
You set my heart on fire and left me to burn
but I pulled my heart from the embers, a woman scorned

Black roses why do you prick me with your crown
My spirit lying broken, upon the hallowed ground
Black roses why do you crown me with your thorns
I have given all I can I cannot give you anymore

No more
No more
No more
Track Name: Until You Come Around
Until You Come Around

Let me tell you a secret
One I’m trying to hide
I know you watch me
Now don’t you lie
You feel the connection
Feel it in your soul
You’re dieing to tell me
What I already know

I’ll be standing here until the Earth stops spinning around
I’ll be holding my breath till the stars all fall to the ground
Baby, I’ll be here...
...Until you come around

You want to touch me
I want that too
I promise I won’t resist
I give myself to you

I’ll be standing here until the Earth stops spinning around
I’ll be holding my breath till the stars all fall to the ground
Baby, I’ll be here...
...Until you come around

Baby I never wanted anything more than this
Just that look in your eye is giving me elemental bliss

So why don’t you call me
Baby give me a sign
A chemical notion
That I’m not wasting my time

I’ll be standing here until the Earth stops spinning around
I’ll be holding my breath till the stars all fall to the ground
Baby, I’ll be here...
...Until you come around
Track Name: Stay
Stay

In the stillness of the evening
Our bodies lay entwined
The musk of our love still lingers in the air
Is there something on your mind?

You ask me if I love you
I don't want to say
You're trying so hard to be patient
I just don't feel that way

Stay with me now
I don't want you to go
Stay with me darling
I don't want to be alone
Cause when the sun comes up tomorrow
You know I'll have to go

You know I'd do anything for you
Kill a hundred men or more
but I'm so afraid to let you in
I don't want to open up that door

Stay with me now
I don't want you to go
Stay with me darling
I don't want to be alone
Cause when the sun comes up tomorrow
You know I'll have to go
Stay with me now
I don't want you to go
Stay with me darling
I don't want to be alone
Cause when the sun comes up tomorrow
You know I'll have to go
Track Name: You Rescued Me
You Rescued Me

I was adrift for endless days
In my lifeboat at the mercy of the sea
Tossed around like an empty shell
I was desperate for a change

After what seemed like an eternity
I washed up on your shore
You picked me up and you brushed the sand off
You picked me up and took me home

You rescued me
You rescued me
In my darkest hour
You're the only light I'll ever need
You rescued me...

In the safety of your arms
I finally felt like I was on the mend
You lifted me up and gave me all of your love
Without you where would I be?

You rescued me
You rescued me
In my darkest hour
You're the only light I'll ever need
You rescued me...

You lift me up, you fill me up
You give me all of your love
You lift me up, you fill me up
You give me all of your love

You rescued me
You rescued me
In my darkest hour
You're the only light I'll ever need
You rescued me...

I was adrift for endless days
I was desperate for a change
Track Name: Alone
Alone

When I wake up from dreaming
And I feel so alone
My heart aches to remember
That I once called you home

You came around and you shattered me
Left my heart in a million pieces
Now I'm alone
So alone

Now my days run on empty
And my love has gone cold
All I ever really wanted
Was to have and to hold

You came around and you shattered me
Left my heart in a million pieces
Now I'm alone
So alone

I took all your words and
I swallowed them whole
How could I have been so blind
You never loved me at all

You came around and you shattered me
Left my heart in a million pieces
Now I'm alone
So alone
Alone
Alone
