Track Name: For My Own
I want you
I knew it from day one
You could be more than fun
And you'd never run
You'd be mine, all mine

I need you
There's no other choice
So I'll raise my voice
'Cause boys will be boys
And I want to be your man

Don't you understand?
I will love you to pieces, darling,
I want you for my own

I'll make you an offer
That you won't want to refuse
I will promise to hold you forever
No matter what you do

You deserve something better
Than a life lived alone
Don't care what you say, it'll be OK,
You don't have to say a word

Your silence is preferred

I'll be anything that you want me to be
Just as long as you show me you love me
Don't care if it's true

Doesn't change how I feel for you
Doesn't change how I want you
For my own
Track Name: Infinite
Electric light illuminates the sky
Energizing the hearts and minds
Of the faithful crowds who have
Gathered here tonight
Leaving behind, for a moment,
Their own lives

So we can be one
One in the music, and one in the magic

We're one
Standing together and never alone
When we're one

And when you're standing this close to forever
The heavy shackles that hold you back
From breaking the mold will crack
And fall off, bit by bit
'Til you're Infinite

Welcome to a world where you step out of time
And into sensations you never will find on the outside

Open your eyes, your mind, your soul
And feel yourself lose all control
The world that you see all around you
Can be whatever you make of it
We can be infinite

Standing still with strangers all around
'Til every sound envelops you
And lifts you high up off the ground
And leads you to the place

Where we can be one
One in the music, and one in the magic

We're one
Standing together and never alone
When we're one

And I can make this night last forever
A never-ending story
Of blissful contentment and glorious love
Above all, I swear that
I'll find you and show you
Our love has no limit

We can be infinite
Track Name: Noise & Fog (Dana)
What are you trying to forget
When you step into this crowd?
Or are you trying to remember...

Remember how you used to feel
When you made these same mistakes?
When you learned how much you could take
Before they would give a damn

Just take a couple milligrams
Of noise & fog
Drink in the electric light
Lose yourself in sound and sight
No more night

What are you trying to forget
When you're walking through this noise?
I wonder if you can remember...

Remember how it used to be
When you made these same mistakes?
When you learned how much you could take
Before you wouldn't give a damn anymore?

Just take a couple milligrams
Of noise & fog, no more
And drink in the electric light
Lose yourself in sound and sight
No more night

What are you trying to forget
When you're standing in the fog?
Do you wish you could remember?
Track Name: Show Me (Franco)
Show me the delicate poetry
That your eyes see
In the flickering shadow
Of a candlelit night
When you burn the wick
beyond the wax
Until the flame has died

Because I've never felt so alive
As the day that we met
and my future arrived
And you didn't have to say a word for me to see

Because you showed me

Show me the elegant melody
That you can't speak
A glimpse into infinity
That tastes of the sublime
And takes me to the nexus of eternity
Where our star-crossed hearts entwine

Because I've never felt so alive
As the day that we met
and your eyes locked with mine
And I didn't have to be afraid of what I'd see

Because you showed me

Show me the way into the heart,
The soul I can't reach
So she can quench the yearning,
burning fire in my eyes
Don't you know that I would give up everything
If you just would say you're mine

Because I've never felt so alive
Now my fantasy and my reality collide
I'll make you love me, make you mine,
you'll see

If you just show me
Track Name: Sweetheart (Stella)
Sweetheart,
He called me sweetheart
And once upon a time,
I called that love

And he was smart,
He feigned a sweet heart,
And he'd call me names
When I would call his bluff

And he would laugh a bit too loudly
When I’d fall flat on my face
Before he'd help me up
And say, "I’m sorry, sweetheart"

It was an art,
The way he'd tear me apart,
And force me to atone
For all his sins

And then he'd say the meanest nothings
In the sweetest voice,
Yes, he'd smile
And say that everything was fine

But then he smiled a bit too proudly
When the world had put me down
Before he pats my back
And said, "I’m sorry"

And I said,
"I’m tired of pretending
That a man who clearly hates me
To validate me
And tell me that I’m whole."

I said,
"I won't be spending one more day
In the shadow of your pain.
It's time for you to grow,
And it's time for me to go."

Apologies can only get you so far
Before the person that you're sorry for
Becomes the person that you are
"sweetheart"

I'm not your sweetheart
And I’m not an angel
Sent from up above

I'm just smart
And I make beautiful art
And honestly
That should be enough
If it's not, then tough

I'm tired of pretending
That a man who clearly hates me
Can validate me
And tell me that I’m whole.

I won't be spending one more day
In the shadow of your pain.
It's time for you to grow,
And it's time for me to go
Sweetheart
