Track Name: It's My Day
IT'S MY DAY

It’s my day
Watch me glow
From my shadow

I was never one to suffer
I somehow lacked the courage
Born with a yellow streak
I’m Monday’s child, a suburban cocoon

I never had the guts
But I always dreamed the glory
Someday take the greatest leap
I’m Monday’s child with nothing to lose

And it’s my day
I’ll take a piece of the sun
And it’s my day
I’ll cherish it then swallow it whole
‘Cause it’s my day today
See me shine, leave behind my shadow

I packed away all my unwanteds
I left no note of specified reason
I told myself the edge was my best friend
It took all my stregnth as I leaped for the sun
I’m Monday’s child and I’m breaking the blue
This Monday’s child has nothing to lose

And it’s my day
I’ll take a piece of the sun
And it’s my day
I’ll cherish it then swallow it whole
‘Cause it’s my day today
See me shine, leave behind my shadow

I will shine
Track Name: Break the Night
Break the Night

Tonight, let's pretend we're young
And dance, dance until we fall
Do you remember where we first kissed

Come with me and young we'll be and age we never
Tire or sleep
Just make believe we're seventeen
We will break the night

Love, there's fire left inside
Let's run before we change our minds
Do you remember when we first kissed?

Come with me and young we'll be and age we never
Tire or sleep
Just make believe we're seventeen
We will break the night
Track Name: My Empty Body
MY EMPTY BODY

I hear the wind coming
It’s been so long
I’m tired of out running
The wind so long

I feel no sorrow
I feel the chemical
I feel the life umbilical letting go
I feel so mystical
I feel so beautiful
I feel a great light running up and down my spine

Shut this body down
And release this soul
The bells are ringing
Celebrate this body going down

I’m more than ready for the wind
Come down and shake me from this skin

I feel no sorrow
I feel the chemical
I feel the life umbilical letting go
I feel so mystical
I feel so beautiful
I feel a great light running up and down my spine

Shut this body down
And release this soul
The bells are ringing
Celebrate this body going down

I’m more than ready for the wind
(I’m more than ready to shake this body)
Come down and shake me from this skin
Track Name: Rocket Fuel
ROCKET FUEL

I’ll be the rocket fuel
That breaks your tether free
From your mother’s womb
To fly the Midnight Sea
I’ll be the rocket fuel

Count down my sweet child
Flip the switch and then wave good-bye
Don’t let gravity be your destiny
It’s the only thing
That ties you to the ground

I’ll be your parachute
No need to be afraid
Set your mind on the stars
And never, ever, ever, ever look away
I’ll be your parachute

Count down my sweet child
Flip the switch and then wave good-bye
Don’t let gravity be your destiny
It’s the only thing
That ties you to the ground

Far below we’ll be watching
As your rocket streaks the sky
Far below we’ll be waiting
For your rocket to come around

Count down my sweet child
Flip the switch and then wave good-bye
Don’t let gravity be your destiny
It’s the only thing—the only thing
It’s the only thing
That ties you to the ground
Track Name: Prove to You
PROVE TO YOU

In a room upstairs on a hardwood floor there’s Pain on its knees
And that Pain bending on the floor—Begging please, begging please
In a room upstairs on a hardwood floor there’s pain on its knees
And that pain bending on the floor—Begging please, begging please
Begging please, begging please

One more chance all I need
One more chance to prove to you what I can be
One more chance all I need
One more chance to prove to you what I can be
Prove to you what I can be - prove to you

In a room upstairs on a hardwood floor there’s Love holding Pain
And Love has heard this song before—Baby please, baby please
In a room upstairs on a hardwood floor there’s Love holding Pain
And Love has heard this song before—Baby please, baby please,
Baby please, baby please

One more chance all I need
One more chance to prove to you what I can be
One more chance all I need
One more chance to prove to you what I can be
Prove to you what I can be - prove to you
Prove to you what I can be

That Pain is me…

One more chance all I need
One more chance to prove to you what I can be
One more chance all I need
One more chance to prove to you what I can be
One more chance all I need
One more chance to prove to you what I can be
Prove to you what I can be - prove to you, prove to you
Prove to you, prove to you
Track Name: More
MORE

Beauty fills me
She warms my weary bones
Feels like dreaming
I float in furry robes

Leave me in the arms of this haze
I’m lost in myself
I love everything
Just one more last taste
That will take me through tomorrow
When I’ll want more

Beauty’s wanting
She’s aching in my bones
Crying for me
“Come fill your lover’s clothes”

Help me ease the grip of this haze
I’m not sure of myself
I’m not sure of anything
Just one more last taste
That gets me through tomorrow
When I’ll want more

Save me from the grip of this haze
I can’t save myself
I can’t save anything
Just on more last taste
That gets me to tomorrow
When I’ll want more
