Track Name: King Of Beasts
VERSE 1:
why do you run like it hurts babe?
I could trace your fingers back
to the place they remember best
in eyes
deer in headlights
what’s come over me?
I’m shaking like a leaf
I just know
I want you so I’ll
roar like a lion
So loud you can’t deny

CHORUS
I know I can
become restless
When I hear (see/feel) you
I can’t help myself
like the king of beasts
find your running feet
memory
calling you under me, so I
I pray to the land to
make us wild again

VERSE 2:
wild again
what we are
blood & bones
going far
like shooting stars
I am here
the battle’s been won
I'm ready for you
the shape of delight
lies in my bones tonight
and it'll call you -
it calls you right to me

CHORUS

BRIDGE
Coming up slow
from a dark so long
Run on home
right into my arms
We’ll raise our heads
and sing our song
In our blood and in our bones
ooh

so loud they can’t deny

CHORUS

OUTRO: makes us wild again
retrace your steps
like memories come
where I'll be waiting
make us wild again
Track Name: Closer
Take me to the dark side
Show me the bright lights
Your body speaks
I lose My speech
Deep into the velvet blue
The moment that we embrace
Listen to the give & take
Warm me down
In & out getting me lost
Just to be found

CHORUS
Take my body closer
To the place that trembles over
Into starry corners
Take my body closer

Pressed against your arms
I can hear your beating heart
caress my mind a rising tide
Filling me so high
In and out pull me close
Let me go I lose control
Up and down
Spin me round
Pullin me in pullin pullin me in

CHORUS
Take my body closer
Into starry corners
Take my body closer
To you
Track Name: Broken Mind
VERSE:
1,000 hours in my room
spent in my bed baby
you lift your disheveled head
and don’t recall where you’ve been
If I looked at you
the way you want me to
would you - would you recognize my face
or would you just push away?

PRE : would you just push away?
I want you to know

CHORUS:
If I could
then I would
leave you with your broken mind
and if I had more discretion
I would not desire you
but I can’t fake it for you
and I won’t make it without you
every morning
you’ll find the best of me

VERSE:
Enough letters fall away
to take you every day
do you think that I want it this way
my babe - I don’t - I wish
I wish that we could be happy
I wish that you would want to see
the way I want
the world to lay out at our feet

CHORUS

BRIDGE:
I won't chase your shadows
Locked up on my wall
You're like the ghost I always
Longed to have at all
i can’t fake it for you
and I won’t make it without you
every morning
you’ll find the best of me

OUTRO:
damned if i do
damned if i don’t
you’re priceless
death lost its will
and now i won’t
you’re priceless
Track Name: Against The Wind
VERSE:
Rip tomorrow’s
pain recall that
you’re hanging on an
empty frame
so break the window
open - and sing to the day that comes
when you wear new wings

I never knew that I could dream like this

CHORUS :
I can make the future
fire in your eyes
Shaking at the foundation
It's bound to come to life so
make it what you want
give it with all the breath you’ve got
You can make the day
Like a wild flame

Grace like bloods pounds
Through veins that flow in
your waking body
My babe you’ll be free
when fate follows
Into tomorrow
where stones and souls will
become living things

I never knew that I could dream like this

CHORUS

I never knew that I could dream like this

CHORUS (DOUBLE)
You can taste the future
fire in your eyes
We can shake the foundation
We’re coming so alive
no we won’t back down
flying so fast hearts are pounding with
fire in our eyes
against the wind
Track Name: Your Paradise
it’s all here
welcome to your paradise
the way is clear
welcome to your paradise
welcome to your new life
time is every changing
things are rearranging just like you
no need to be worried no need to rush
because this time it’s just for you

your life is my life
and my life
is - it is a part of you
(repeat)

take it in
Take it in now
Take me in
Breathe me in now

it’s all here
welcome to your paradise
the way is clear
welcome to your paradise welcome to your new life

your life is my life
and my life
is - it is a part of you
(repeat)

take it in
Take it in now
Take me in
Breathe me in now
Track Name: Key To Me
VERSE:
I’ll be waiting there
catch my name
scream my name down
I’ll be waiting open armed
and sitting - you fall
into black and stained -
come out to say - go
down, and pray
down, stop and come

CHORUS
All stops around the world
fall away • fall away
heart chasing for a pearl
in the right moment you are the key

You are the key • are the key • key to me
You are the key • are the key • key to me

I’ll be waiting there
change my name
scream my name down
I’ll be waiting open armed and seeing you fall
into down parading now you change my name
you catch me as I fall
down and pray

CHORUS

Bridge:
Fall into these arms
Fall into arms
Fall into these arms
Fall into these arms

CHORUS
