Track Name: Top Of The World
Hey you, your standing over there
With your cutsie little smile
And your short blonde hair
Hey you do you see me over here
I'm right outside your window

It must look kinda typical
And slighty egotistical
But I think you would look way better with me

You're lookin kinda frantic
And just a bit romantic
Sticky when your boyfriend can see
You're falling for me, yea

Standing on top of the world
Where nobody can bring us down
There's a place you can be who you wanna be
It's right outside your window

Standing on top of the world
Where nobody can bring us down
I know a place where you can love who you wanna love
It's right outside your window

Hey you, dancing over there
I'm hypnotized and I cannot break the stare
Hold my hand
Kiss if you dare tonight

I'm a new contender
Jumping in the game
For a second lets pretend
That you're gonna run away with me
Imangine we could be

Standing on top of the world
Where nobody can bring us down
There's a place you can be who you wanna be
It's right outside your window

Standing on top of the world
Where nobody can bring us down
I know a place where you can love who you wanna love
It's right outside your window

Tonight when the dj spins the last song
The crowd moves in and you sing along
I walk up to you in a casual way
I'll kiss your lips
I'll ask your name

Standing on top of the world
Where nobody can bring us down
There's a place you can be who you wanna be
It's right outside your window

Standing on top of the world
Where nobody can bring us down
I know a place where you can love who you wanna love
It's right outside your window

STANDING ON TOP OF THE WORLD
STANDING ON TOP OF THE WORLD
Track Name: Tornado Cutie
I'm sitting here by the warmest fire
Rememberin you so young and wild

We were asking for the world
We never gave up for a day
Through it all you stuck beside me
Fighting all the way

Cause there ain't no better day
Then the day you give your heart away
To the women you met on the dancing floor
When the sparks burn out there's always more

Let love beat hard like a pounding drum
One plus one is such an easy sum
It's a four letter word
Sounds so absurd
It's the way it was
At the beginning of the earth

We were asking for the world
We never gave up for a day
Through it all you stuck beside me
Fighting all the way

Cause there ain't no better day
Then the day you give your heart away
To the women you met on the dancing floor
When the sparks burn out there's always more

Look into the skies above you
There's an angel thinking of your
I believe that hoping
We will make it make it through

Cause there ain't no better day
Then the day you give your heart away
To the women you met on the dancing floor
When the sparks burn out there's always more

There ain't no better day
There ain't no better day...
Track Name: Talk
I see you
You don't know what to do
With me

Bumps come in the road
They toss you to and fro
And we bleed

To big
To take in the heavy load
We see
The picture up way too close

Talk to me, talk to me
Why can't you see, why can't you see
What we could be, what we could be
It's hard I know, to really see
The child that lived, inside the man
Could it help you love, to understand
That I am you, that you in me
Talk to me, talk to me

Count to ten
Maybe then
We'll change
Force yourself to move
In the end we stand to lose
The game

To big
To take in the heavy load
We see
The picture up way to close

Talk to me, talk to me
Why can't you see, why can't you see
What we could be, what we could be
It's hard I know, to really see
The child that lived, inside the man
Could it help you love, to understand
That I am you, that you in me
Talk to me, talk to me

Sweet breath
Breathe it in
Pause
I'm wearing thin
Your words were few
You turn them off
When all the while we could've talked

Your words were few
You turn them off
When all the while we could've talked
Talk talk
Talk to me
Talk talk
Talk to me

(Talk to me, talk to me
Why don't you talk to me)
Track Name: Barely Breathing
I can't believe it is ten after eight
You said that you'd call me
Not leave it too late
I'm stuck around here
I'm dragging my feet
I'm scratching your name on the earth beneath

If I had my way baby you would've stayed

Was it a dream
Did we really feel love
I saw the stars in the heavens above
You fall and I wish you would not go away
Take me or leave me
I'll beg you to stay

Time has its way of providing a path
We fumble around find our way in the dark
I feel I should mention
It's so hard to say
Seems we go so tied up in this old back and forth
I'm holding you tight as I head for the door
My hearts barely beating
My breath's gone away

If I had my way baby you would've stayed

Was it a dream
Did we really feel love
I saw the stars in the heavens above
You fall and I wish you would not go away
Take me or leave me
I'll beg you to stay

We fell in love
Like we're under a spell
We're hoping to god we would never get well
I can still taste you
You're under my skin
I still hear your voice
How it echos within

Was it a dream
Did we feel love
I saw the stars
Heavens above
Was it a dream
Did we feel love
I saw the stars
Heavens above
There's one for you

Was it a dream
Did we really feel love
I saw the stars in the heavens above
You fall and I wish you would not go away
Take me or leave me
I'll beg you to stay
Track Name: Manic
I'm tired of life
I'm out of fuel
And the way these things are going
Makes me wonder if I'll make it through

I'm torn apart
I'm out of tune
These strings the only friend
I have to take a little edge
Off these blues

From way up here
I guess it would be easy
To take things too far
Brown eyes looking up at broken daddy
Make it all too much

I guess I guess
We all have different stories
But at least we have a story
Oh yea
I guess
We can hold it all together
It gets better it gets better
Oh yea

A broken bird
With broken wings
They lied about freedom
In those magazines
There's no easy way to tell you
You're gonna have to face it alone

From way up here
I guess it would be easy
To take things too far
Brown eyes looking up at broken daddy
Make it all too much

I guess I guess
We all have different stories
But at least we have a story
Oh yea
I guess
We can hold it all together

Don't cry now
I'll be alright
It's ok
I'll soon be out of the dark
On my way
It's not the first time
And it won't be the last time

I guess I guess
we don't all end in glory
But at least we have a story
Oh yea

I guess
We can hold it all together
It gets better it gets better
Oh yea
Track Name: Honestly
Oil a machine
It can never stop
Wheels turn fast
It's a ticking clock
Eyes of a child
Ask you for help
Are we in heaven
Or are we in hell?
Moving all around
You're a busy bee
Persued by the demons
The devil in me
You're more than a loser
On a winning streak
Believing in a dream
While the dreamer's asleep

Breathe (breathe)
Relax (relax)
Climb (climb)
Grasp (Grasp)

Where you gonna go
When the world around you
Crumbles in a heap
And the ocean drowns you
Everything is quiet now
You're lying on the frozen ground
Something in the air
Is changing around you
Feel it in the calm
Of the voice that found you
Everything is quiet now
You're lying on the frozen ground

Building the blocks
Up to the sky
Wealthy mans plans
On a poor mans life
Never do we stop
To consider the cost
Of fields and fields and fields of loss
Stop at the red light
And look all around
Glimmers of hope
There's hope in the sound
The young ones be sure
Not to ever be found
With a tomb for a heart
Or your dream in the ground

Breathe (breathe)
Relax (relax)
Choke (choke)
Crash (crash)


Where you gonna go
When the world around you
Crumbles in a heap
And the ocean drowns you
Everything is quiet now
You're lying on the frozen ground
Something in the air
Is changing around you
Feel it in the calm
Of the voice that found you
