Track Name: Wolves (free)
Baby, Baby it's ok
I know everything you went through today
Higher then the highest stars
You jumped just to see how brave you are


Because love has made a fool of you
Has broke your bones and left you bruised
Every step you make on the way
Will lead you to a breaking day
To be free, to be free, to be free

Wolves that run are wolves that die
You were meant to lead the pack not run and hide
So take your paw and grip the earth
clench your teeth and claim back your turf


Because love has made a fool of you
Has broke your bones and left you bruised
Every step you make on the way
Will lead you to a breaking day
To be free, be free
Not just for you but for me
So be free, be free, be free
Track Name: Tin Man
Baby, Baby it's ok
I know everything you went through today
Higher then the highest stars
You jumped just to see how brave you are


Because love has made a fool of you
Has broke your bones and left you bruised
Every step you make on the way
Will lead you to a breaking day
To be free, to be free, to be free

Wolves that run are wolves that die
You were meant to lead the pack not run and hide
So take your paw and grip the earth
clench your teeth and claim back your turf


Because love has made a fool of you
Has broke your bones and left you bruised
Every step you make on the way
Will lead you to a breaking day
To be free, be free
Not just for you but for me
So be free, be free, be free
Track Name: Little
cigarettes and stockings
choking up your mind
twiggy like a tree
girl you're hard to find
but that's ok you're more beautiful that way

baby don't faint
stand up straight
you sure better not finish your plate
just soldier through no time for weight

It's a little to late
a little to small
a little to little for nothing at all

You can't learn to waist
When there's nothing to eat
But over here we choose
to Throw away our feast
Our waist get small
And the most become the least

But little girls go hungry
While big girls choose to starve
And I'm sorry I can't sit around
And wait for it all

to be a
little to late
a little to small
a little to little for nothing at all

Cause beautiful aint beautiful
Track Name: Hard Love
I was born into a sea of sharks
Caged every night in their beds in the dark
They keep breaking me in
But there's nothing here that's still living

Cause it's a hard love I've bought
It's got nothing, nothing, nothing that I want
It's a hard love I've bought
It's got nothing, nothing, nothing that I want

They're all standing in a line
And he keeps whispering "that ones mine"
But you can't take what you don't own
And they're all mine to take home

Cause it's a hard love I've bought
It's got nothing, nothing, nothing that I want
It's a hard love I've boug ht
It's got nothing, nothing, nothing that I want
Track Name: Come To The River
Staple shut my lips tonight
The stars above me can not be described
The absence of your voice is leaving me so dry

Cause there's a well where you use to live
But the water I'm drawing is way to thin
Evaporated I call upon you again

And You say
You say

Come to the river, bring me your cup
Arise my daughter let me fill you up
Listen gently without you ears
Can't you see my water never disappears?

Am I the only one chasing dreams
That lead to a river that flows inside of me?
Like a white silk candy, flooding through my blood stream
Or are we all just hanging out dehydrated by the drought?
Waiting on rain but really drowning in all our pain

And You say
You say

Come to the river, bring me your cup
Arise my son and let me fill you up
Listen gently without your ears
Can't you see my water never disappears?

But where does the water go?
Where does the water go?
Where does the water go If the river never overflows

So come to the river
Bring me your cup
Arise my children let me fill you up
Listen gently without your ears
Can't you see my water never never disappears?
Track Name: Star Dust
Fury was the wildest, but
Wild horses ain't just black
Lone wolves have to dance alone
But the sweetest melody comes from a pack

Water going ankle, knee, waist deep
Gives me all the control I seek
Diving in from head to feet
Gives me all the faith that I need

Cause I am the Stardust and you are the Star
You dress me in a twinkling shirt, makes me free like the wind and fly like a bird
It´s useless to steer a ship thats not moving at all
So put fat glory in my sails and carry me on

The strength of a forest lies within 
The number of its trees
The jar of honey isn´t filled 
Just by one but of many little bees

Thunder comes best with lightning
Rumbling loud, bright, frightening 
Rain and storm together riding 
Wait its getting even more exciting

Oh you dear dependency 
Now I can so clearly see
Depending on what is greater than me
Makes me free
Track Name: Silent Night
Meet me by the field tonight I'll be the one dressed in white
Don't you mistake me, for the birds in the sky
You'll hold me like a cigarette you'll breathe me in and then You'll put me down
And suddenly darling, I'll be found
It's funny how a name can change and not be something you miss
When it's sealed by one goodbye kiss.

On this silent night
All is calm
All is right

But now I'm in the house we painted blue
Just for me and you
But where are you darling
I got to get you home soon
the squeaky floors the rusty doors they're all singing our symphony
But you're not here, to dance with me

On this silent night
All is lost, is it going to be all right
Silent night
Tell me darling, are you coming home tonight?

Would you, would you meet me by the field tonight?
I'll be the one that's dancing in that silent night
Could you could you find the star I picked out from the throne
To lead you home, home

On this silent night
All is calm
All is right
Silent night
All is lost, is it going to be alright
Silent night
Tell me darling are you coming home tonight?

Silent night
all is calm
is this going to be alright tonight?
Track Name: Come Home (free)
It's hard to see the road
When you're stuck in the woods alone
And you're footsteps are lost in the rain
And I know you'll be ok, you always seem to find the way
But right now all you see is the rain

You're tempted by a pack of lies
That try to brake you until you stop trying
But darling all I can say is trouble will always be
But don't let it burn out your fire

So let's fall
Fall to the ground
Let's role
Until we meet solid ground
I won't let you drown

When the rain stops can you feel the breeze
Moving you through the leaves?
Is it back to the start of the trees?
Does it move you along, down the road you belong?
Out of the woods in the end

So let's fall
Fall to the ground
Let's role
Until we meet solid ground
I won't let you drown

My friend come, come home to me

Come home, come home, come home to me
Track Name: Learning To Be Dangerous (free)
I killed a lion with my bare hands polished and clean
It turned out to be a kitten roaring in my dreams
I boxed a crocodile trying to eat the children
But I forgot my gloves so they called in the wolves and the pigeons

Let this not be my battle field
I dont wanna fight alone

I'm learning to be dangerous
Just like you
Dangerous
Just like you

I put my armor on with ribbons tide to bows
Set out with ginger spice, sugar and a rose
you gave me a shield you gave me a sword, you gave me everything
but when I kicked I got tricked by the devils schemes

I'm learning to be dangerous
Just like you
Dangerous
Just like you

We are compelled to squeak not like mice
But roar like a lion fierce and might
Our weakness ends where His strength begins
Courage relies on something thicker then or skin
