Blue Neighbourhood

Heavy veil of sadness wrapped around my head
One day I feel fine and the next I feel sad
I can see the light but all around is dark
Gimme shelter ‘cause my misery is stark, yeah

Get me right out of here (This blue neighbourhood)
Get me right out of here (‘cause it ain’t cool)
Get me right out of here (This blue neighbourhood)
Get me right out of here (No, it ain’t good)

Fifty shade of darkness hanging over me
Don’t know what to do and don’t know who to be
I can see the sun shine but I live at night
All I see is black when all I’d see is white, yeah

Get me right out of here (This blue neighbourhood)
Get me right out of here (‘cause it ain’t cool)
Get me right out of here (This blue neighbourhood)
Get me right out of here (No, it ain’t good)

Holding On

When there’s only one card left to play
And you’ve got no ace right up your sleeve
When nobody can show you the way
And you feel you’ve always been deceived

You’ve gotta keep on keeping holding on
Until a brighter day for you will dawn
You’ve gotta keep on keeping holding on
Until a better chance for you will come

When your tears are mixed up with the rain
And nobody’s there to dry them up
When all you can feel is such a pain
And you find no cure to heal you up

You’ve gotta keep on keeping holding on
Until a brighter day for you will dawn
You’ve gotta keep on keeping holding on
Until a better chance for you will come

Come To Me

I skimmed through the pictures on my phone
And I could see all the things we’ve done
I know it was not a summer love
Baby I’m sure it was something more

Come, come to me [What are you waiting for?]
Come, come to me [I can’t wait here anymore]
Come, come to me [Don’t hesitate no more]
Come, come to me [Love is worth fighting for]

I dream of you every night and day
I’d like to dance with you the night away
I know we’ll be happy every day
Baby I’m sure it will be okay

Come, come to me [What are you waiting for?]
Come, come to me [I can’t wait here anymore]
Come, come to me [Don’t hesitate no more]
Come, come to me [Love is worth fighting for]

Mesmerising Kisses

She’s so fine, yeah, she just blows my mind
She’s so nice oh my, she’s well designed

She drives me crazy in the morning
She drives me crazy at night

She just has mesmerising kisses (4x)

She’s got style, yeah, she leaves the rest behind
She’s got eyes brighter than the sun that shines

She drives me crazy in the morning
She drives me crazy at night

She just has mesmerising kisses (4x)

Here she comes again (4x)

Magical World

Sneaking through the maze
Of your mixed up thoughts, yeah
Being right in a daze
Don’t know what is what

Let me in, inside your magical home
Drive me through, right through your magical roads
Pierce my skin with all your magical love
Let me be part of your magical world

Ticket to the show
I could have some fun, yeah
I can see you glow
Brighter than the sun

Let me in, inside your magical home
Drive me through, right through your magical roads
Pierce my skin with all your magical love
Let me be part of your magical world

I'm Still Dreaming Of You

I know where I would rather be
But now I just cannot be free
You know these chains are holding me
And so I can’t hold you tightly

But my mind can run to you
Take your hand and embrace you

I’m still dreaming of you [Are you doing the same too?](4x)

One day and it will not be long
I’ll stay right where I do belong
Just wait, jut wait for me to come
Have faith and far away we’ll go

But my mind can run to you
Take your hand and embrace you

I’m still dreaming of you [Are you doing the same too?](4x)

Get A Little Closer

Please, don’t you hesitate no more, baby
Coz the time is right
Your courtship lasted long enough, baby
Can’t you see the signs?
I’ve opened up my heart to you
You’ve got the key to my feelings too
Just make that final move

Why don’t you get a little closer, just a little closer to me
Why don’t you get a little closer, coz my lips are dying to be kissed
Why don’t you get a little closer, just a little closer to me
Why don’t you get a little closer, it’ a chance you don’t wanna miss

No need for dating me no more, baby
All you’ve done was right
Our relationship can really grow, baby
Be a real delight
I’ve opened up my heart to you
You’ve got the key to my feelings too
Just make that final move

Why don’t you get a little closer, just a little closer to me
Why don’t you get a little closer, coz my lips are dying to be kissed
Why don’t you get a little closer, just a little closer to me
Why don’t you get a little closer, it’ a chance you don’t wanna miss

Love - Hate

He used to be your lover
He used to be your friend
And now you can’t believe that
Things have horribly changed
Why, oh why, has love turned into hate?

He used to be your soul mate
He used to be your man
And now the story’s over
He just don’t understand
Why, oh why, has love turned into hate?

There are no excuses
There are no more lies
He should stop abusing
He should let you fly
Because you girl, only you, girl, can decide for your life 

He says that he’s so sorry
He’d like another chance
But what he’s got to offer
Cannot be called romance
Why, oh why, has love turned into hate?

Inner Light

Tiny little species in the universe this is what we are
Floating next to Jupiter and Mercury and the Northern star

Let my soul take off to reach some distant lands without leaving home
Broaden my horizons and my point of view never stop to roam

I’m guided by my inner light (2x)

I can hear sweet music beating with my heart blowing in the wind
Mixed emotions turning into memories right beneath my skin

I’m guided by my inner light (2x)

Two Parts Of The Same Heart

Give me a reason to forget all the good times that we’ve spent together
Give me a reason to believe that I won’t be seeing you forever

Please come back here, please stand by me (2x)

Tell me how d’you feel when even tho our love is strong we are living miles apart
Is this what you need to realize that you and I are two parts of the same heart

Give me a reason to forget all the sweet words whispered in my ears
Give me a reason to believe that one day we won’t be back together

Please come back here, please stand by me (2x)

Tell me how d’you feel when even tho our love is strong we are living miles apart
Is this what you need to realize that you and I are two parts of the same heart

You Make Me Sing

I remember the first time I saw you down at the bar
While drinking champagne you gave me a blink of the eye
Immediately I thought that you babe, you’re such a star
And now that you are right next to me, I’m sure that you are

I remember the first kiss you gave me inside your car
While staring at me you told me “we’re gonna go far”
Immediately I thought that you babe, you’d such a charm
And now that I’m madly in love babe, I’m sure that you have [you make me sing]

La, la, la, la...

I remember the day I proposed right under the stars
While kneeled down I prayed you would say you’d be my bride
Immediately I thought that you shone, shone like the sun
And now that we’re sharing the same bed, I’m sure that you are [you make me sing]
