Track Name: Cinderella
We can’t all be Cinderella
And find love with a storyteller
With a horse drawn ending
and a bestseller
We can’t all be Cinderella
No, we can’t all be Cinderella

No I never could contain
My romanticized brain
Never knew what I should do
To queue the love and life the stain
The stain of my expectations,
Lies, foundations,
I built to stay alive
But I got so so so tired
My heart was in overdrive
I thought that if I lost a shoe
Then fate would send me
straight to you, but…

We can’t all be snow white
And catch a prince
by the end of the night
And live life with a copyright, oh,
We can’t all be snow white
No, we can’t all be snow white

So I’m checking myself out of fantasy
I gotta fight for what’s ahead of me
This plotline’s headed sideways,
I’m as lost as I could be
No script, don’t care,
No joke, no fanfare,
I’m giving up the crown
Take this fairytale
And turn it upside down
How did I get in this mess,
I’m a damsel in distress…

We can’t all be Cinderella
And find love with a storyteller
With a horse drawn ending
and a bestseller
We can’t all be Cinderella
No, we can’t all be Cinderella

who do you possibly think you are,
round here you won’t get far
without a kingdom and a credit card
who do you possibly think you are,
round here you won’t get far
without a kingdom and a credit card
without a kingdom and a credit card…

we can’t all be snow white
and catch a prince by the end of the night
and live a life with a copyright, oh,
we can’t all be snow white

and we can’t all be Cinderella
and find love with a storyteller
with a horse drawn ending
and a bestseller
we can’t all be Cinderella
no, we can’t all be Cinderella
Track Name: One Kiss
You come around, you act so sweet
A child’s look, but I feel the heat
It’s in the air, it’s all around
It’s everywhere, I’m melting down
The things you say, when I try to leave
I close my eyes, I have to stay
I feel it burn when you look my way
I’m drawn to you, can’t get away

One kiss, I get excited
Two kiss, I’m on the floor
Give me three kiss, I try to fight it
Give me four kiss, I beg for more

I turn away, then back around
Can’t even say what I’m feeling now
You hold my hand, I pull away
I lose my nerve, and then you say
You’re my sweet girl,
you’re my everything,
You’re the one I need,
you have to stay
I know myself, lost my chance to go
I look at you, I love you so

One kiss, I get excited
Two kiss, I’m on the floor
Give me three kiss, won’t ever fight it
Give me four kiss, I beg for more

You’re in my head,
now you’re in my soul
I’m melting down, can’t ever go
My lips are yours, I feel your breath
You know my way, you make me stay
You’re in the air, you’re all around
I love your way, I’m falling down
We feel it burn, we know we’ll stay
We live our love, we’re on our way

One kiss, I get excited
Give me two kiss, I’m on the floor
Give me three kiss, won’t ever fight it
Four kiss, I beg for more

Give me one kiss, I get excited
Give me two kiss, I’m on the floor
Give me three kiss, won’t ever fight it
Four kiss, I plead for more
Track Name: Nevermind
Something’s changing
and I shouldn’t care
I would know that smile anywhere
She won the game that
I could never start
And now she’s got your
heart locked up fair and square
You don’t need to be lonely anymore
Don’t you know you deserve
what you’ve been looking for
Go chase her down,
don’t worry, I’ll be fine
Now that you’re in love
the pleasure’s all mine

I can see you, I can see you
Got your head up in the clouds
I could free you, I could free you
But I’d only drag you down
Wish I could hit rewind
I love you, nevermind

Well, you’re together now, I have to say
I don’t know how I ever saw another way
You look at her and all the pieces fit
And I must admit, I feel you slip away
She’s got something I just can’t deny
And you know me well enough
to know that I’ll get by
Maybe we’re too different anyway
But at the end of the day,
it was worth a try

And I can see you, I can see you
Got your head up in the clouds
I could free you, I could free you
But I’d only drag you down
And I’m sad to see it wasn’t me
Who turned you upside down
Wish I could hit rewind
I love you, nevermind

I’m letting you know
I’m giving up the fight
I’m gonna watch as you
ride off into the night
I’m keeping my feet
on solid ground
Where I’m safe and sound
as you’re taking flight

And I can see you, I can see you
Got your head up in the clouds
I could free you, I could free you
But I’d only drag you down
And I’m sad to see it wasn’t me
Who turned you upside down
Wish I could hit rewind,
hit rewind…
I love you, nevermind
Track Name: Lullaby
No direction, sinking ship
Slipping slowly, lost her grip
Desperate whispers down the hall
Echo softly, freefall

And it’s a lullaby for
the brokenhearted
Go back to where you started
Reread the lines you tried
Dry those tears you cried, and
Just don’t think of him
Come on, sink or swim
Cross out the path you charted
‘cause it’s a lullaby for
the brokenhearted

Rainy Thursday afternoon
Feeling better spoke too soon
Favorite re-run tv show
She scans the credits for
the names she knows

And it’s a lullaby for the brokenhearted
Go back to where you started
Reread the lines you tried
Dry those tears you cried, and
Just don’t think of him
Come on, sink or swim
Cross out the path you charted
‘cause it’s a lullaby for the brokenhearted

dirty dishes, restless mind
all the memories left behind
silent breakfast, burns the toast
she swears that she has seen his ghost…

and it’s a lullaby for the brokenhearted
go back to where you started
reread the lines you tried
dry those tears you cried, and
just don’t think of him
come on, sink or swim
cross out the path you charted
‘cause it’s a lullaby for the brokenhearted
Track Name: Hitman
My hired hand turned out to be a hitman
Somebody save me, he’s taking me down
My head is spinning from the drug that he gave me
He’s killing me, killing me with love

Why can’t I hide, hide away
I gotta change my name
And I’m losing the games he plays,
And I know I might not last the day

Deep scars and getaway cars
Got a kiss like Dillenger, heavy trigger finger
Sneak away on Valentine’s Day
I’m in the danger zone, now he’s got me alone

Why can’t I hide, hide away
I gotta change my name
And I’m losing the games he plays
And I know I might not last the day

I feel a blackout coming
The walls are caving in
I don’t know how I got here
I don’t know where I’ve been
He’s got me blindfolded,
My hands are tied
I haven’t seen the light in days
I think I’m gonna die

My hired hand turned out to be a hitman
Too late to save me, he’s taking me down
My head is spinning from the drugs that he gave me
He’s killing me, killing me with love

Why can’t I hide, hide away
I’ve gotta change my name
And I’m losing the games he plays
And I know I might not last the day
Track Name: Icebreaker
Open the window, honey baby,
Let your shadow in
Tell me again, now, sugar doll
What’s crawling through your skin
Let it slide, let’s compromise
And fight those stomach butterflies
Send em off with natural conversation
I”ll lessen your frustration

Hello hello, hello hello, hello hello honey
Nice to meet you , don’t be shy, let’s break the ice

Did I surprise you, honey baby,
I don’t know your name
Never been one for wasted silence,
hope you feel the same
Tell me what’s been troubling you
In all the ways that words can do
Come on boy, let’s hear it for the ages
Let’s keep on turning pages

Hello hello, hello hello, hello hello honey
Hello hello hello hello, go on and throw the dice
Hello hello, hello hello, hello hello honey
Nice to meet you, don’t be shy, let’s break the ice

I hope I’ve made my mark
Come on, take one in the dark
I’m throwing you a line,
Cmon cmon cmon, just a little sign…

Open the window, honey baby,
let your shadow in,
Tell me again now, sugar doll,
how you want to begin
Let it slide, I’ll bat my eyes,
let’s ditch those stomach butterflies
Admit it boy, you like this conversation
Track Name: Gaslight
I said to you, “Just follow me”
You wouldn’t dare to disagree
I stole your voice, I stripped your soul,
You never knew you lost control…

And the gaslight flickers
And my net pulls tight
You’ll just fade quicker
If you try to fight
And the gaslight flickers
You’re feeling bad
But I’ll make you sicker…
And the gaslight flickers

Poison whispered in your ear
I’ll tell you what you want to hear
The ones who love you try to win,
Look through my eyes, you’ll see their sin

And the gaslight flickers
And my net pulls tight
You’ll just fade quicker
If you try to fight
And the gaslight flickers
You’re feeling bad
But I’ll make you sicker…
And the gaslight flickers

Those other faces, Well, I know what to do
I say they’re angry, they’re evil, they’ve turned on you
I take your name without a second thought
I smile, ‘cause I won’t get caught

And the gaslight flickers
And my net pulls tight
You’ll just fade quicker
If you try to fight
And the gaslight flickers
You’re feeling bad
But I’ll make you sicker…
And the gaslight flickers

You know me, I’m the one in black
Don’t try to dream, I’ll hold you back…

And the gaslight flickers
And my net pulls tight
You’ll just fade quicker
If you try to fight
And the gaslight flickers
You’re feeling bad
But I’ll make you sicker…
And the gaslight flickers
