Track Name: Fire and Ice
I'm burning up, still it never feels cold enough
Warm to the touch, Fire and Ice never hurt so much

And I never told you how it felt
I've always been the Ice and then I melted when you said
"Please don't go, I want you to stay! I won't go numb, just don't
plunge and fade away..."

And I'm burning up, still it never feels cold enough
Warm to the touch, Fire and Ice never hurt so much

Frozen, I let you flicker.
But I still try to fix you every day.
'Cause you're my flame, my little light
And I'm gonna let you shine.

And I'm burning up, still it never feels cold enough
Warm to the touch, Fire and Ice never hurt so much

You're my little light, and I'm gonna let you shine
You're my little light, and I'm gonna let you shine,
You're Fire and I'm Ice, and I'm gonna let us shine
Let us shine
Let us shine
Let us shine

Do do do do do, do do do do do, do do do do do, do do do do do

You're Fire and I'm Ice, and I'm gonna let us shine...
Track Name: Lullaby
Stop all the violence, and listen to the quiet
Drink your wine, and clear your mind.
And they'll drop their bombs, and shoot their guns.
And the clouds will rise, and blacken the sky...

Hush now Darling, hush now cry no more.
He'll come back now, they'll all come knocking at our door...

So the peace signs wave, and the cigarette smoke,
hangs on a little longer to our coats.
And we've given up on God, need some time to thaw our souls,
'Cause it's been so long and cold...

Hush now Darling, hush now cry no more.
He'll come back now, they'll all come knocking at our door...

(Instrumental)

Hush now Darling, hush now cry no more.
He'll come back now, they'll all come knocking at our door...
Track Name: Survival
Oh, so they told you to run, did you grab the cash,
'Cause you can't relax these days without
money in the bank, and
oh, so did you run or walk, take it fast or slow...

Pieces, eating me alive.
Tell me, I'll survive.
That I'll survive....

So wait this moment out.
There's no second-guessing this,
just let it all out!
And shine.... Shine...

Pieces, eating me alive.
Tell me, I'll survive.

Galaxies spinning away.
Stars collide inside my mind
erasing the pages, of my life.

Pieces, eating me alive.
Tell me, I'll survive.
That I'll survive....
Survive...
Track Name: Forget Me
Because I've loved you since day one,
it makes this really hard.
400 days on the mark, and I've never stopped seeing stars.

And if you could just forget me,
this would be easier.
I'd stay your baby bee if our love was gonna get sweeter.
But I've gotta go before I, change my mind.
Don't let yourself go 'cause I left you behind.

18 fleeting months, and you'll still be the one.
But I don't want an expiration date on this love.
And I don't wanna ever say goodbye....
Even if it's only for a short while...

And if you could just forget me,
this would be easier.
I'd stay your baby bee if our love was gonna get sweeter.
But I've gotta go before I, change my mind.
Don't let yourself go 'cause I left you behind.

Because I went ahead, chose my future instead,
Doesn't mean I don't love you.
And it cuts me like a knife, feeling inside like I,
Forgot you at the finish line...

And if you could just forget me,
this would be easier.
I'd stay your baby bee if our love was gonna get sweeter.
But I've gotta go before I, change my mind.
Don't let yourself go 'cause I left you behind.
Track Name: Charlotte
Charlotte's the kind of girl, to let it go...
But you'd never know that she's falling apart at the seams

And one day, she'll go to Paris,
Painting her pain away.
Letting the boys fall in love with her,
Without letting her heart run away.
And Charlotte's the girl that will get the prince,
When the time is right,
And the boys won't go kissing someone else at night....

Charlotte's the girl who comes crying to me saying,
"When will these boys ever learn, that my heart's a fragile thing?
And they're chipping away, chipping me away at the seams."

And one day, she'll go to Paris,
Painting her pain away.
Letting the boys fall in love with her,
Without letting her heart run away.
And Charlotte's the girl that will get the prince,
When the time is right,
And the boys won't go kissing someone else at night....

Charlotte don't run away! Climb the tower and look the other way,
Look the other way.
Charlotte they're making things hard,
Keep your head above your heart.

Charcoal canvases, baby blue eyes,
The boys come calling, memories revised.
But Charlotte's fading away, a whole lot of tears to say
She's not coming home,
coming home.......

Charlotte don't run away! Climb the tower and look the other way,
Look the other way!
Charlotte they're making things hard,
Keep your head above your heart.

Charlotte's the kind of girl to let it go...
