So you’re hearing There’s a change in the scene Across the clearing A room for the kings and queens Start believing There’s a reason to be In the feeling When you’re walking next to me In the ballroom There’s a sweet melody That is calling For letting your soul release So pick your poison Put your heart in the groove Watch your body move Come with me The show’s starting soon The drinks are free And so are the tunes So come and see Mongolian Afternoon So you’re smiling Cause they’re playing your song There’s no denying You know that there’s something wrong You try the handle But you’re locked in this room Such a scandal You’re leaving but not so soon The bottle’s missing If you want to get away You’ll have your price to pay Come with me Walk under the moon The drinks are free And so are the tunes So come and see Mongolian Afternoon Will you have the pleasure of Taking home the one you love

It’s getting to be that time of the year We’re giving out love and getting back fear Yeah the monitor is almost here Bringing candygram But only brings heartbreak for me Can’t you see Sweet tarts for Emily Sugar hearts on the next over seat And now his sights are set on me Bringing candygram With no name inscribed on the seal Is this real? Is this how it feels to be loved? Is this what dreams are made of? But who can it be That would send this to me? School bus is a smooth ride home Posted up in the back seat alone Ice cold sweat, my hand white as stone Holds my candygram As I get out and walk to my door To mother’s warmth How’s my little Valentine? How was school? I said it was fine. And she stunned with me her final line Did you get my candygram? I knew not to laugh or to cry Tears of joy Is this how it feels to be loved Then why do we make such a fuss? Who needs an affair When mommy is there? Not me.

Dream away the dimming day As dreams of our future fade I thought when I opened my eyes, nothing would have changed But I can't stand this life we made What can I do to make you feel That I am new, that this is real? I know right now you’ve never been so insecure But now I’ve never felt so sure of my Devotion If I cannot see a brighter day Would you stay with me and tell me it’s okay If I cannot seem to satisfy Will you sit me down with you and tell me why If there ever lingers any doubt Would you have the faith in me to call me out Cause it’s all in all a mystery How I treat you like I do and you still love me Yeah, me Believe me Receive me It’s easy when two worlds confide Devotion

You still give me butterflies After all this time I need to know What you’re doing to me Cause you see I love you I can’t keep the thoughts away I ain’t walkin’ straight I feel so low Til you’re back in my sight I just might Love you Every time our heartbeats synchronize Every time we touch I’m paralyzed The only thing I feel when I close my eyes Are butterflies Way your body moves I’m hypnotized Wrapped in your cocoon but I know you’re mine So come on baby let’s metamorphosize To butterflies And touch me Don’t fly away You still give me butterflies After all this time I need to know What you’re doing to me Cause you see And touch me Don’t fly away Hold me Don’t fly away Way your body moves I’m hypnotized Wrapped in your cocoon but I know you’re mine So come on baby let’s metamorphosize

Once in a hundred years The century star appears And legends are told how it brightens the sky With head of fire and tail of ice It last came before recall When our grandfathers learned to crawl But tonight is the night it should once again pass So gather around, lie on the grass Comet come and comet go Comet give us life you know Tilt your head up to the sky See the century star go by We’ve been here for hours now And restlessness runs through the crowd And still is the starlight that’s taunted since dusk There's been not a hint of motion above Did it forsake our rock? Did it just miss a stop? Did it take a wrong turn at Ganymede Moon? Wherever it is, it better show soon Comet come and comet go Comet give us life you know Tilt your head up to the sky See the century star go by And if the century star don't come Mama's found a brand new sun Giving life to planets new Where future generations view

Love of my life How can I find Anyone new Half worth my time Somebody who Makes me alive Like you do Love of my life I’ll be alright Long as I keep You out of my mind But you planted a seed So love of my life Come back to me Whenever I need you I’ll be there When the earth is crumbling And sky falls from above Just let me know That there will still be love Love of my life Stay on my side I’ve put in too Much of my time Just help me through Just hold the line While I breathe Love of my life Don’t put up a fight Follow my lead I can’t compromise I won’t let you be So love of my life Come back to me
