Track Name: Perfect
It all started under fall leaves and twilight,
In a courtyard,
One October night,
Across the distance,
I saw a smiling face,
And my heart just stopped,
Before I felt it race,
And lying here now,
I hope you can see...

Though It seems sometimes we stumble on this road we're on,
My heart still beats just as strong
When I look and I see your smiling face,
I close my eyes and take the time to breathe you in,
I feel your touch upon my skin
And perfect doesn't seem so far away.

We've seen so much
And through the hardest times,
We've lost sight of the dreams we share
And the ties that bind (you and I)
And when the words get lost,
And nothing seems to go our way,
I close my eyes and hear the words
Your heart is trying to say.
And lying here now,
I hope you can see,

It seems sometimes we stumble on this road we're on,
My heart still beats just as strong
When I look and I see your smiling face,
I close my eyes and take the time to breathe you in,
I feel your touch upon my skin
And perfect doesn't seem so far away.

And every now and then it seems much harder than before,
But I promise you I will never give up,
Give up on you so don't stop.
Just remember you and I.
And how I found forever when I looked into your eyes
And I know why,
And I know why,
I promise you, I swear to you to never say goodbye.

It seems sometimes we stumble on this road we're on,
My heart still beats just as strong
When I look and I see your smiling face,
I close my eyes and take the time to breathe you in,
I feel your touch upon my skin
And perfect doesn't seem so far away.
Track Name: Mess of Me
Did the world just start to spin around?
As I watch you spin around.
Oh you got me spinning 'round.

And where the hell did you come from anyway?
I was not prepared in any way
Oh but anyway.

(Don't you know) I'm helpless,
When you look at me that way,
And every time you walk away,
There's nothing else that I can say.

You take me
Then it starts to break me.
No matter what you do
All I need is you.

You say you love me,
Then you scream you hate me,
Baby can't you see?
You've made a mess of me.
You've made a mess of me.

(Oh, oh, oh oh)

I'm strung out on my knees again,
A stranger to this hell I'm in.
Scratching underneath my skin.

Now you've got your hooks in me,
Played me like a melody,
And it's slowly killing me.

(Don't you know) I'm helpless,
When you look at me that way,
And every time you walk away,
There's nothing else that I can say.

You take me
Then it starts to break me.
No matter what you do
All I need is you.

You say you love me,
Then you scream you hate me,
Baby can't you see?
You've made a mess of me.
You've made a mess of me.

You pick me up
And then you pull me down
it's like the hand I hold's
the hand that holds me down.
I know it's wrong,
But I can't tear myself away.
You're running through my veins.

You take me,
And it starts to break me,
No matter what I do,
All I need is you!

You take me,
And it starts to break me,
No matter what I do,
All I need is you.

You say you love me,
Then you scream you hate me,
Baby can't you see?
You've made a mess of me.
You've made a mess of me.

(oh, oh, oh, oh)
You've made a mess of me.
Track Name: Superstar
Started life just sound of the inside,
Dreamed of breaking in from the outside,
Broke free from the chains of society,
Bought your ticket in the social lottery,

Sold your soul for a place in the spotlight,
But the darkness always dims the sunlight,
Brightest colors shined on the surface,
Sacrificed yourself to serve their purpose.

Your colors
Ran deeper then,
Then they pushed the needle in,
And bled your colors out.

Pack your bags,
(Headed out to Hollywood)
Cut your ties,
(Leave behind your neighborhood)
Change your name,
Forget who you are,
Stick with me kid,
You're gonna be a superstar

Stars shine within the faded photographs,
Weak attempts within the feeble paragraphs,
Flashbulbs drowning out the moonlight,
Images that transcend black & white,
For a time, you outshined everone,
We all turned to see what you'd become,
The Brightest Flame that burned with such intensity,
Now flickering out, oh so tragically,

Your colors
Ran deeper then,
Then they pushed the needle in,
And bled your colors out.

Pack your bags,
(Headed out to Hollywood)
Cut your ties,
(Leave behind your neighborhood)
Change your name,
Forget who you are,
Stick with me kid,
You're gonna be a superstar.
Pack your bags,
(Headed out to Hollywood)
Cut your ties,
(Leave behind your neighborhood)
Change your name,
Forget who you are,
Stick with me kid,
You're gonna be a superstar

And they took you in,
And they used you up.

The Grande Illusion took your soul,
And what you didn't give
Well, you know they stole.
Broken, battered, strung out and shattered,
They took you in,
how they took you in...

Pack your bags,
(Headed out to Hollywood)
Cut your ties,
(Leave behind your neighborhood)
Change your name,
Forget who you are,
Stick with me kid,
You're gonna be a superstar
Pack your bags,
(Headed out to Hollywood)
Cut your ties,
(Leave behind your neighborhood)
Change your name,
Forget who you are,
Stick with me kid,
You're gonna be a superstar
Track Name: Cold Steel Rain
I've been impatiently waiting,
And painfully aware,
That my heart continues beating,
But my lungs can't find the air,
I wrap my empty arms around me,
To hold what's left inside.
It's like the world has torn me open
And cast my soul aside,

In the cold steel rain,
Falling from the sky,
I can't get through to you,
But I'll never let go,
Like a ball and chain,
Pulling me down,
I reach for the surface,
But I don't know where to go,
Baby all this time,
You've always had the best of me,
I wish I knew the way,
To give you all the rest of me,
And underneath the cold steel rain,
You walk away.

So now you're picking up the pieces,
Of the mess I left behind,
And your eyes can't hide the damage,
That you try so hard to hide,
You wrap your empty arms around you,
And wince against the pain,
And in your heart you make a promise,
That you know you're gonna break again,

In the cold steel rain,
Falling from the sky,
I can't get through to you,
But I'll never let go,
Like a ball and chain,
Pulling me down,
I reach for the surface,
But I don't know where to go,
Baby all this time,
You've always had the best of me,
I wish I knew the way,
To give you all the rest of me,
And underneath the cold steel rain,
You walk away.

(And as the rain comes down)
The world looks all brand new,
(And as the rain comes down)
I want to wash your pain away
(And as the rain comes down)
And let it take the pain from you

In the cold steel rain,
Falling from the sky,
I can't get through to you,
But I'll never let go,
Like a ball and chain,
Pulling me down,
I reach for the surface,
But I don't know where to go,
Baby all this time,
You've always had the best of me,
I wish I knew the way,
To give you all the rest of me,
And underneath the cold steel rain,
You walk away.
And underneath the cold steel rain,
You walk away.
