Track Name: What Fire
so you’re older love, and you’re over love
shaking it off you say you're fine

but it's eating you, yea it eats me too
what do we do we’ll lose our minds

but oh. don’t let go
it’s easier to be left alone
but time will never fly
without you here by my side

all the falling leaves a feeling
trying to fight to fight to fight
what we could be

there’s a fire all around here
baby baby baby babe
speak to me

hard to tell if it’s workin’
need to know i’m buggin’
can you feel it in your
heart

even loving needs an answer
baby baby baby babe
come to me

so you’re on your own
but are you ever alone?
thinking you’d miss what’s never there

better let it die, than to have to try
you’re building it up and breaking down

but oh, don’t say you know
it’s just as well to never show
but i, see through the signs
you’ve said your lines, i'm changing mine
Track Name: Slow Burn
It takes love to get higher than your drug
it takes drugs to get higher than your love
try it again, and again, and again

running looking around, feeling out of sorts
if it’s even a touch, lifts you high above
thinking it’s right, yea it’s right, yea it’s right

she screams of a girl that you already knew
her face is a whirl and you can’t tell who’s who
it's a slow burn, it's a slow burn

you look in her eyes but you can't see the light
nothing is right, but she's staying the night
it's a slow burn, it's a slow burn

it takes love to get higher than your drug
sliding through your mind like you’re out of time
sinking again, and again, again

it takes drugs to get higher than your love
he who finds the vein, never lives in vain
going around, and around and around

you’re finding your way, and you’re never ok
you open your mouth but there's nothing to say
it's a slow burn, it's a slow burn

you read all the signs, but the rest is a lie
you look in the light, all you see is her eyes
it's a slow burn, it's a slow burn
Track Name: The Undertow
I’m a sleeper, i’m a sleeper in your choir
Oh messiah, i get higher in your fever
I can be one, hand on the gun
shoot like a diamond out of the sun

Can you hear me? Can you see me now i’m naked
Put me somewhere, put me somewhere near the ocean
Where do we go, out in the tow?
Finally be a part of the show?

I used to believe it would be easier

Isn’t there something else for me?

It's the money, it's the money I can't deal with
I'm a lover need a lover I can be with
I wanna die light in my eyes
Don’t want to suffocate in a mine

Digging around to find the future

Isn’t there something else for me?
Track Name: Afterglow
Had to tell everyone that i know
couldn’t wait for long to show
your energy

There’s a song all around you and me
But you pull it down for all
The world to see

Now you’re running in and out of my head
can’t get you out it’s like
You put me in some kind of dream…

Oh Ariel, your love is a carousel
Can’t wait to pretend and oh in the end
You turn me round and round
With all of your love, all of your love

In the land of the sun and the stars
you melt it all into one
won’t you take me there

Through the layers of the weird and the cool
you make it seem so new
yea you’re always on

Up and down, bouncing around through the times
in your ever changing mind
yea you pull me in…and lay me out

With all that sound
Can’t get it out
Your perfect hair
You’re everywhere
You make it real, make it real...

oh Ariel, your love is a carousel
can’t wait to pretend and oh in the end
you turn me round and round
Track Name: Love is a Game
This could be the end
Try to make amends
Baby there’s another face
I can feel it in your cold embrace

I can say for sure
when you close the door
we can start the back and forth
it’s a feeling i can take no more

But all in all

Love is a game
and you play it but you don’t know why you do
Love is a game
And you need it but you don’t know how it’s true
Love is a game

Though it was the one
driving in the sun
Taking all the other turns
I could feel it stinging all the burns

But i don’t know if you
want to face the truth
Baby how can i decide
When your memories all i have to guide
at all

all in all, in all

Love is a game
and you play it but you don’t know why you do
Love is a game
And you need it but then again do you?
Love is a game

It’s working in your mind
but you’re changing all the time
maybe there’s a place to love
but is it here and now

and lately you’re amazed
at the people in their place
ordinary isn't love
and you're always above

above…

Love is a game
and you play it but you don’t know why
you do
Love is a game
And you need it but you don’t know why
you do
Love is a game
and you want it, and you feed it all the time
all the time ohhh
Love is a game
Track Name: Face the Sun
When life just gets you down
and heartbreak’s all around
Remember when you had what you had
can you still hear her laugh?

Well people come and go
But your heart must beat alone
Live and love and die by the changes
you’ve yet to see who you are

Everyone face the sun
play the game, play the game
taken only by the lonely, here’s an answer
Everyone face the sun

When life just gets around
And your heart beats up and down
you wonder if you got what you came for
if you’re here for anything at all

But you take it all in stride
'Cause the love lives on inside
Throwing everything in the fire
shape your feelings out of the flame

Everyone face the sun
Lady lay, lay with me
Taken only by the lonely here’s an answer
Everyone face the sun
