The Spell 04:53
You got me in deep/ having trouble sleeping/ you're all I'm thinking Stupid me/ you're all I'm drinking I must confess that I am mess yeah Feeling you in every room/ cause I smell your perfume Was it wise to talk to ya/ I should've ignored ya/ it's hard to breath every time you're near me/ the push and pull you know what to do /yeah/ wishing you away but you stay You really got me under your spell/ why do you do the things that you do/ I try to fight you outta my head/ but you remain there instead/ you really got under your spell/ you linger on my head/ I can't get you out of my head I kind of get the feeling that this could be romance/ you bring me to a place where I can't find no peace of mind I'm caught up in this yearning you really know how to get to me/ you give me that glance/ and now I'm giving you this chance In one fell swoop/ you got me in loop/ tell me what your thinking You be hanging around/ often you’d be trying to play dumb/ pretending not to be/ not so into me/ but when we’re alone/ you’re all mine By myself I often question/ cause you keep me guessing/ it's like feeling my way through the hallways of your mind/ am I doing this/ am I a fool for this/ why am I so blind Was it wise to talk to ya/ I should've ignored ya/ it’s hard to breath every time you're near me/ the push and pull you know what to do/yeah/ wishing you away but you stay You really got me under your spell/ why do you do the things that you do/ I try to fight you outta my head/ but you remain there instead/ you really got under your spell/ you linger on in my head/ I can’t get you outta of my head I kind of get the feeling that this could be romance/ you bring me to a place where I can't find no peace of mind I'm caught up in this yearning you really know how to get to me/ you give me that glance/ and now I'm giving you this chance

Crash 03:05
So we drive until we crash head on We steal away So we drive until we crash head on We fall in love See we've been sitting here a long time trying figure out what the hell what were gonna do / I'm pressing on the brake but I don't know how much longer cause I'm ready/ I am ready to go Cause we're facing each other/ seems that we like one another / the attraction between us/ creates sexy kind of cool/ but the danger among us is the speed of each other and so we crash So we drive until we crash head on We steal away So we drive until we crash head on We fall in love The tell tale signs of attraction often leaves me feeling/so confused/ but beaming/ I push upon my ride yes I'm out of control but it's too late/ I want to smash into you So now we drive towards each other cause we like one another /the attraction between us /creates sexy kind of cool/ but the danger among us is the speed of each other and so we crash So we drive until we crash head on We steal away So we drive until we crash head We fall in love See we've been sitting here a long time trying figure out what the hell what were gonna do / I'm pressing on the brake but I don't know how much longer cause I'm ready/ I am ready to go Cause we're facing each other/ seems that we like one another / the attraction between us/ creates sexy kind of cool/ but the danger among us is the speed of each other and so we crash

You can make my/ you can make my/ you can my day complete/you’re the sweetness to my candy drop Make me over make me over/ caress me with those words you say/ how dare you try to take my breath away See I've been watching after you for so long / you see a man can only thirst for so long/can we make it right tonight Do you want to go/ let me know/ let me know/ let me know/ Come kiss cause I love ya 2x Oh my God now / Oh my God now/ you made the choice/ to ride with me/ we got some important things to talk about You seduce me/ you seduce me/ you make it hard to be Discrete/ it’s just not cool/ don't make me act a fool See I've been watching after you for so long / I could really get used to this Ohhh/ You see a man can only thirst for so long/ can we make right tonight Do you want to go/ let me know/ let me know/ let me know/ Come kiss cause I love ya 2x Voulez-vous aller/ Faites le moi savoir Do you want to go/ let me know/ let me know/ let me know Come Kiss me cause I Love ya

I struggle in a winter/ I fight on and I linger/ I scratch my head to think/ of what it would be/ you watch me as I wither / you shrink me in a figure You put me in a box/ and then you taped it up/ I screamed out in a rage/ is this the sweet hereafter/ it's not the sweet hereafter You put me in a box/ and then you taped it up/ I screamed out in a rage/ is this the sweet hereafter/ it's not the sweet hereafter I can feel it in my bones/ with me they're always cold/ the scent of evergreen overseas me subtly/ frozen in my tracks/ A life I won't get back You put me in a box/ and then you taped it up/ I screamed out in a rage/ is this the sweet hereafter/ It's not the sweet hereafter You put me in a box/ and then you taped it up/ I screamed out in a rage/ is this the sweet hereafter/ it's not the sweet hereafter

Pissed 03:41
So I crashed on my bed/ with head in my hands I’m so frustrated/I can’t debate it/is it all a game/ I just don’t understand/ why /can’t/ you/ understand This/was/not/part/of the plan That’s why I’m just pissed/ you loved me/ And then you left me/what does it suggest You gave me no choice/you were my only voice Can't except the state of this relationship/ yet I watch it all get blown up into bits / what did I say So I crashed on my bed/ with head in my hands I’m frustrated/ I can’t debate it/ is it all a game/ I just don’t understand/ why/can’t/ you/ understand This/was/not/part/of the plan That’s why I’m just pissed/ you loved me/ And then you left me/ what does it suggest You gave me no choice/ you were my only voice Vamp We/ are/ after all/ tears bones and desire Repeat

See you're marching on my heart/ taking a bitter part of me/ sinking to a low / weighs me down in the throws/ let me go/ heart set amiss/ now there must be glitch/ spinning on a whim/ this is such a sweet sin/ darling/ my feelings are sparkling I only have on heart/I only have one heart/ and I'm never ever ever gonna let it fall apart 2x Sting me with a line/ while I watch you take your time/ I would much far rather know what you taking me for/ although / I'd much rather be blind/ heart set amiss / now there must be a glitch/ spinning on a whim/ this is such a sweet sin/ darling/ my feelings are sparkling I only have one heart/ I only have one heart/ and I'm never ever ever gonna let it fall apart 2x

Get Away 02:49
Said I'm guilty/ I took advantage of this love/ now I'm learning all about/ what you need from me/ a classic case of my mistake/ Didn’t try to deviate/ and now we're here in this state Chorus Can we just get away/ can we for Heaven sake/ us standing in this chaos/ splits us/ oh so far apart/ Can we just away/ can we for a Heaven sake/ us standing in this chaos/ splits us/ oh/ oh so far apart Verse Right now, are we a right off/ you did some things to perpetuate/ not saying that I'm free of any blame/ but you/ kept your love from me/ didn't give much for live for and now we're suspended in this season Chorus Can we just get away/ can we for Heaven sake/ us standing in this chaos/ splits us/oh so far apart/Can we just away/ can we for a Heaven sake/ us standing in this chaos splits us oh so far apart/ Can we just get away/ can we for Heaven sake/ us standing in this chaos splits us oh/ oh so far apart/ Can we just get away/ can we for Heaven sake/ us standing in this chaos splits us oh/ oh so far apart Rap I'm standing here just knocking/ Calling on your heart non stopping Suspended in time/ I can't rewind/ the hands of time so I keep on knocking I'm standing here just knocking/Calling on your heart non stopping Suspended in time/ I can't rewind the hands of time so I keep on knocking Chorus Can we just get away/ can we for Heaven sake/ us standing in this chaos/ splits us/ oh so far apart/ Can we just away/ can we for a Heaven sake/ us standing in this chaos/ splits us/ oh/ oh so far apart Repeat

Tell Me 03:22
Tell me it isn't over There's another chance Can we find romance Tell me I’m your man Verse Lately you've been harboring/ them feelings that/ come often/ they hurt me/ I'm all for not excusing/ tell me the wrong I'm doing/ can we seek/ peace It's been a while we been together/ counts for something/ let’s talk about it/ then laugh about it/ this ain't a thing This petty little subject we can solve it/ let’s just agree/ that life's too short/ let’s get over it Tell me it isn't over There's another chance Can we find romance Tell me I’m your man Verse It's midnight your not home and/ I'm wondering if your holding someone else/ these arms can't live without ya/ come home let me remind ya/ you're all I need yeah/ It's been a while we’ve been together/ counts for something/ let’s talk about it/ then laugh about it/ this ain't a thing This petty little subject we can solve it/ let’s just agree/ that life's too short/ let’s just get over it Tell me it isn't over There's another chance Can we find romance Tell me I’m your man

Die with Me 04:45
Won't you die with me Won't you die with me Won't you die with me I lived out my life/ to no order of society/ a slave to no one/ want to live out my life in tranquility Won't you die with me Won't you die with me Won't you die with me I crack at my past/ I did the best I could with what I had/ I'm gross in my attempts/ to let go of my past Won't you die with me Won't you die with me Won't you die with me They pick at my defense/ while I wither in my stance/ I’m embattled to be real/ let me soak in your fulfillingness Won't you die with me Won't you die with me Won't you die with me Shoot me to the moon/ let me swoon in my ultimate fate/ see I'm gross in my attempts/ to let go of my past
10.
See we've been the maestro of it all/ Conducting everything thus far/but never ever ever in my life I've ever seen such destruction / Humans we have it all/ we have the chance to turn it all around /but we choose/ to destroy each other Why - The shade of your skin is not the same one that I'm in Why - Your religion’s not the same as mine /so let me crucify ya Why - Your government denies its people of their human rights Why - The right to clean water ain't a part of your world order now Days fill my head with a searing pain/ not much room for a smile/ Hell what's the use / if nobody gives a damn about their fellow man. Fake homeless people/ run the streets with their crooked games/ meanwhile the real ones/ they all suffer in vain/ people they plunder /for the sake of having material things/ oh what joy it brings Why - The shade of your skin is not the same one that I'm in Why - Your religion is not the same as mine /so let me crucify ya Why - Your government denies its people of their basic human rights Why - The right to clean water ain't a part of your world order now See we've been the maestro of it all/ conducting everything thus far/but never ever ever in my life I've ever seen such destruction / Humans we have it all/ we have the chance to turn it all around /but we choose/ to destroy each other
