Track Name: This Feels Right
The sun spills over the ground,
my shadow kisses the trees.
This is me, I feel alright.
This feels right,
and I won't ever stop
until she makes me,
please don't make me,
because I won't,
and the breeze passing by
with the clouds stings my face,
makes me strong. Don't make me stop.
I'll never slow down.

"I'll never stop,"
I think to myself
as my body breaks down
and I look to the sky.
I'll run faster and faster
'til I go back in time.
This feels right.
This feels right.

The sun spills over the Earth.
I'm falling to my knees.
We're out of breath
and out of time.
But the pink shines on your lips
and I forgive this.
I won't forget this,
no.
But I try every night.
I try so hard.
I close my eyes. You open yours
and say "I know that you forgot me."

"I'll never stop,"
I think to myself
as my body breaks down
and I look to the sky.
I'll run faster and faster
'til I go back in time.

I hear your voice and it's calling my name,
and it pulls me to my feet.
I need something real
and it feels right.
Track Name: Crash Landing, 1985
Crash landing, 1985.
So many years have gone and come by.
I can't tell if we're really still alive,
and I look down to you and say"
let's stick together,
'cause we've been here forever,
and we can't keep walking down
the same old lines anymore."

If you stay here by my side,
we won't walk down the same old lines,
and we'll leave planet Earth behind.

Different people can take us from place to place.
They can take us where we need to go.
The stars above cry out for us to come home,
and you're scared we'll die here all alone.
Let's stick together,
'cause we've been here forever,
and we can't keep walking down
the same old lines anymore.

If you stay here by my side,
we won't walk down the same old lines,
and we'll leave planet Earth behind.
If we make it back somehow,
we'll spin around and round and round
and we'll look down from the sky
at what became our home.

I know what you're thinking now,
we gotta find a way home.

If you stay here by my side,
we won't walk down the same old lines,
and we'll leave planet Earth behind.
If we make it back somehow,
we'll spin around and round and round
and we'll look down from the sky
at what became our home.

Let's stick together,
'cause we've been here forever,
and we can't keep walking down
the same old lines anymore.
Track Name: Miracle
The red light shines off your eyes
like the reflection of a thousand souls.
On the dance-floor, in your car,
now I'm not really sure where we are.

So secluded, it's so dark,
and you can't see me trembling.
Finally found a place to park,
you look at me and scream,

and I'm so scared tonight,
scared that I'm gonna die,
so scared tonight.
I need a miracle to save my life.

Broken echoes, fading screams
it's only you and I.
Now you have me all alone
but your eyes have finally burned out cold.

Broken glass, fallen angels,
still crying out to be saved.
So numb, am I still alive?
Someone, please help me. I'm falling.

I need a miracle tonight,
a miracle before I die.
It takes a miracle, alright,
a miracle to save my life.
I need a miracle tonight,
a miracle to be fine.
I need a miracle, a miracle.
I need a miracle.

Dried blood cracks off my face
and my eyes only see red.
Your mouth is moving up and down,
but I can't understand what you're saying.

Can this really be the end?
Well, right now I don't think I'd mind.
I never thought it would end like this.
All I wanted to do was dance.

I need a miracle, alright,
a miracle before I die.
I need a miracle tonight,
a miracle to stay alive.
I need a miracle, alright,
a miracle before I die.
I need a miracle, a miracle.
I need a miracle.
Track Name: So Long
It's not so hard to dance
when you're not watching me,
but you've been gone so long
that it's just killing me.

The music's up so loud
that I can't hear the phone.
I put on track six,
but it just keeps skipping.

Come home you've been gone too
long enough can't stop the
pacing when you're not home.
You've been gone so long.

Naturally,
I'm feeling so unnatural,
counting down
to when you walk back through that door.

Come home you've been gone too
long enough can't stop the
pacing when you're not home.
You've been gone so long.
Track Name: No Reason
You look in my eyes
and tell me not to worry,
but if you look in the mirror
you'll see just what I mean.
We act different
every single night.
I don't remember what you looked like
when we first met,
and that's alright with me
'cause I'll probably leave.

There is no reason
to look in my eyes,
they'll just pull you down,
and go run and cry.
You won't forgive me
but you'll kiss me anyway.
If it's okay with you,
it's okay with me.

I can see graves
in the backyard,
and we both make the bet
that they're ours.
They might be right
when they say that we are haunted,
but it doesn't matter
'cause I don't believe a word they say,
but they're probably right.
They're always right.

There is no reason
to look in my eyes,
they'll just pull you down,
and go run and cry.
You won't forgive me
but you'll kiss me anyway.
If it's okay with you,
it's okay with me.

There is no reason
to hold me tonight,
I'll just break you down
and go run and die.
