Track Name: Guard Your Heart
be careful dear
you nearly let yourself fall where you feared
you know smiles can turn
remember play with fire and you'll get burned

guard your heart
against the seas
you don't need scars from your daydreams
look sharp baby
you know, dreams are potent this you'll learn
guard your heart
and will your power
it only takes a spark to make the flame grow higher
keep your cards up and remember always
guard your heart

boy keep an eye out
signals can sour behind every pout
girl please take care
nothing repairs quite like buyer beware
Track Name: Goddess
I can feel the morning rays a-coming
Coming for to pull from this bed
I don't know how I'm supposed to face it
With thoughts of you still running through my head

Minutes turn to hours and still it's you and me
You should've known one little death won't set you free

In your arms, I am loose
In your arms, we are amused
In your arms, in your arms,
I'm your goddess and I'll bless you with my mark

There's nothing wrong with making someone happy
Especially when it's the whole night through
You played me right as though I might not make it
But thoughts are all I can leave behind with you

Minutes turn to hours and still it's you and me
You should've known one little death won't set you free

In my arms, there lies a feast
In my arms, you'll find release
In my arms, in my arms,
I'm your goddess and I'll bless you with my mark
Track Name: Waiting
Some people wait for love to come along
They hold back their heart til they're sure
I must confess that even though I know it's wrong
I need your touch and more, I hope you'll

Hear my heart and come my way
You know you're running through my mind all day
They say that time will see it true and now I'm sure it's you,
So baby, hear my heart and come my way

Once in a while the current can be all too strong
You get pulled away from the shore
Were I with you, I know I'd be where I belong
I'm down on my knees, begging for you to...

Hear my heart and come my way
You know you're running through my mind all day
They say that time will see it true and now I'm sure it's you,
So baby, hear my heart and come my way

Here I am so come my way
You know I long for your embrace
They say that time will see it true and now I'm sure it's you,
So baby, hear my heart and come my way

Some cannot wait for love to come along
That's why I wrote you this song...
Track Name: Lovestruck
My eyes look up and they’ve caught a glance
Eyes so green I’ll never stand a chance
I’ve been struck by you, yes I’m struck by you

Now I’m floating, feels like I’m melting
A candle’s forming and it burns for you
Maybe was made for you

My mind is full of the words you say
So distracted how to get through the day
I am so in to you, just so in to you

And now I’m holding my breath in
and unfolding the texts you send
Don’t worry I’ll wait for you, yes I’ll for you

Oooh…

You kissed me under a starlit sky
My head is gone it’s just a perfect night
I think I might love you, I think I might love you…
Track Name: One Thousand
I breathe it in, hold in again
I take it all one step per time
Filing all behind the line

Breathe all it out, beyond the doubts
I push it farther step by step
Feeling for the point to rest

One thousand tears round up
Circling back to one
Their memories good and gone
Back where they belong

Breathing it in, my mind eye spins
I'm waking up to coloured glass
Buried under black and white past

One thousand tears round up
Circling back to one
Their memories good and gone
Back where they belong

I reason keeping troubles blind
I'm better off not knowing what lies

One thousand tears…
Track Name: Dreadnought
I hide in plain sight
My mind in full flight
They'll find what they like
But what the hell do they know
I've seen their eyes peek
Subtle and searching
Judging and piercing
What the hell do they know

(Oo-ooh) I steel myself
(Oo-ooh) for parallel
(Oo-ooh) of whirlwind thought
My dreadnought

Their fire is wasted
Rumour embraces
I'm bound to face it
What the hell do I know
My craving demands it
But duty is maddening
It's not what I fancied
But what the hell do I know

What the hell do they know
What the hell do I know
What the hell do I know
Track Name: Red Love (feat Craig Chee)
You’re my red love x4

Red was the colour of the sky above
And red was the sound of your breath
Red was my face when you first held my hand and
Red was the way my heart leapt

Oh oh ooohhhhh-oh x2

You’re my red love x4

Red were the roses you gave me that day
Red were the strawberries we shared
Strawberries are secrets, secrets are songs
And red was the music in the air

Oh oh ooohhhhh-oh x2

You’re my red love x4

Red was your laugh, how it lit up your face
And red was the spark in your eye
Red was the moment I knew it was true;
Red is the rest of our lives

Oh oh ooohhhhh-oh x2

You’re my red love x4

Red was the colour of the sky above
And red was the sound of your breath
Red was my face when you first held my hand and
Red was the way my heart leapt
