Track Name: Colorful Lights
TAKE ANOTHER LOOK AT YOUR FACE
NOT EVEN A HAIR OUT OF PLACE
UNTIL TONIGHT

I CAN SEE YOU'RE LOVING THE TASTE
YOU THINK WE WERE STUCK IN THE MAZE
UNTIL TONIGHT

IS ONE OF US A FOOL FOR PLAYING BY THE RULES?
ARE YOU FOR REAL?

I SEE THE LIGHT SHOW IGNITING AT THE STARTING LINE
IT’S HARD TO HIT THE BREAKS WHEN YOU’RE COLOR BLIND
IS LOVE JUST AN ILLUSION OF THE WORST KIND?
ARE YOU FOR REAL NOW FINALLY FOR THE FIRST TIME?

JUST BECAUSE IT’S GOOD IN THE PAST
DOESN’T MEAN THE FEELING WILL LAST
IT’S WHAT WE HAD

BUT NOW THAT IT IS OVER AND DONE
THERE’S NO NEED TO BLAME ANYONE
WE’RE ONLY SAD

WE HAD QUITE A RIDE YOU ROLLER COASTER BRIDE
ARE WE FOR REAL?

I SEE THE LIGHT SHOW IGNITING AT THE STARTING LINE
IT’S HARD TO HIT THE BREAKS WHEN YOU’RE COLOR BLIND
IS LOVE JUST AN ILLUSION OF THE WORST KIND?
ARE YOU FOR REAL NOW FINALLY FOR THE FIRST TIME?

COLORFUL LIGHTS, IT’S ALL RIGHT
AND I’M PAYING FOR IT TONIGHT
COLORFUL LIGHTS, IT’S ALL RIGHT
A SPECTACLE, NON-SENSICAL, ON WITH THE SHOW...
Track Name: Red Light Fish
I WANT TO LIVE! HEY!
I THOUGHT UP A THOUGHT, I WAS JUST THINKING
OF HOPE AND LOVE TONIGHT
WE WANT WHAT WE'RE WANTING, INSTEAD OF SINKING
LET'S RISE INTO THE SKY

THIS WAS A ONE MAN SHOW, I'M JUST AFRAID TO KNOW
WHAT MAYBE HAPPENS IF MY BOYFRIEND LIKE A RODEO
RIDES RIGHT INTO MY ROOM, MY HEART GOES BOOM BOOM TONIGHT

RED LIGHT FISH, DOES WHAT SHE PLEASES IN A PLACE LIKE THIS
LIKE SEXY JESUS YOU ARE SUCH A DISH
YOU'VE GOT IT COMING TONIGHT
RED LIGHT FISH, I WAS JUST THINKING YOU ARE SO DELISH
IT'S THE PUSHING SHOVING IN MY HEAD TONIGHT

IF EVERYONE HERE, EVEN THE HATERS
COULD FIND THEIR HEART'S DELIGHT
THEN MAYBE THE WORLD, EVEN THE HATERS
WOULD HOPE AND LOVE TONIGHT

THIS WAS A ONE MAN SHOW, I'M JUST AFRAID TO KNOW
WHAT MAYBE HAPPENS IF MY BOYFRIEND LIKE A RODEO
RIDES RIGHT INTO MY ROOM, MY HEART GOES BOOM BOOM TONIGHT

RED LIGHT FISH, DOES WHAT SHE PLEASES IN A PLACE LIKE THIS
LIKE SEXY JESUS YOU ARE SUCH A DISH
YOU'VE GOT IT COMING TONIGHT
RED LIGHT FISH, I WAS JUST THINKING YOU ARE SO DELISH
IT'S THE PUSHING SHOVING IN MY HEAD TONIGHT

AND I'M FLOPPING ON THE SEA SHORE SAND
AND I'M SQUIRMING IN HAND
I WANT TO LIVE! HEY!

RED LIGHT FISH, DOES WHAT SHE PLEASES IN A PLACE LIKE THIS
LIKE SEXY JESUS YOU ARE SUCH A DISH
YOU'VE GOT IT COMING TONIGHT
THEY CALL ME RED LIGHT FISH
AND IF I COULD FULFILL ONE SINGLE WISH
IT'S PEACE AND LOVING FOR THE WORLD TONIGHT
Track Name: Under the Bus
YOU THINK EVERYTHING WE DID
WAS DOING IT ALL MY WAY (ALL MY WAY)
WHEN ALL THE TIME WE BOTH KNOW
IT WAS YOUR WAY OR THE HIGHWAY (GOODBYE WAY)

I'VE SEEN ENOUGH, YOU'RE MEAN ENOUGH
TO TURN YOUR BACK WHEN I AM BLUE
I'M MAD ENOUGH, I'VE HAD ENOUGH OF YOU

THIS PART OF ME, THE HEART OF ME
HAS GOTTA BE IN AGONY
VOLUNTARY, NECESSARY, ORDINARY INSANITY

I WILL NOT LET MY LIFE BE RUINED BY US
I WILL NOT THROW LOVE UNDER THE BUS

O O O - UNDER THE BUS

I'M GONNA LIVE IT UP SO GOOD
YOU'LL NEVER LIVE IT DOWN (LIVE IT DOWN)
EVERYTHING YOU HATED
I'LL BE DOING TO THE TOWN (I'LL GET AROUND)

WITH OPEN ARMS, I'LL SMILE AGAIN
I'LL LIVE TO LOVE ANOTHER DAY
MY LIFE IS MINE
MY DREAMS WILL FIND THEIR WAY

YOU WERE BROKEN, I WAS HOPING
I COULD CHANGE HUMANITY
VOLUNTARY, NECESSARY, ORDINARY INSANITY

I WILL NOT LET MY LIFE BE RUINED BY US
I WILL NOT THROW LOVE UNDER THE BUS

OOO - UNDER THE BUS

WE'RE ALL HERE TO LIVE
WE'RE ALL HERE TO LOVE
Track Name: Shine a Light on It
IF YOU ARE IN NEED OF PAIN TODAY
I SUGGEST YOU GIVE YOUR HEART AWAY
IF YOU ARE IN NEED OF PAIN TONIGHT
I RECOMMEND YOU TURN ON YOUR LOVE LIGHT

AND SHINE A LIGHT ON IT
SHINE A LIGHT ON IT
IT'S HUNGRY AND YOU WANT IT
SO LET THE BLEEDING START
SHINE A LIGHT ON IT
SHINE A LIGHT ON IT
TAKE A REAL GOOD LOOK
BEFORE IT'S TORN APART

IF YOU ARE IN NEED OF PAIN TODAY
I SUGGEST YOU TRY LOVE, IT NEVER FAILS
IF WE'D ONLY KNOWN WHAT WE KNOW NOW
COULD WE HAVE TURNED THIS TRAIN AROUND

SHINE A LIGHT ON IT
SHINE A LIGHT ON IT
THE PATTERNS THAT WE'RE MADE OF
SCATTERED WHEN WE MADE LOVE
SHINE A LIGHT ON IT
SHINE A LIGHT ON IT
THE TRACES OF FOREVER
NEVER CAME TOGETHER AGAIN
Track Name: It's a Start
HANG TIGHT KEEP HEAD UP
(SNAP OUT OF IT)
STRAIGHT FACE SHOW NO PAIN
(HEY, GET A GRIP)

IT'S A START
YOU BROKE MY HEART
IT'S SQUARE ONE
YOU SHOT THE GUN
IT'S ALRIGHT
IT'S NOT ALRIGHT

YOU WERE EVERYTHING
(TO ME, UNTIL YOU WEREN'T)
DARKNESS INTO LIGHT
(THAT'S ALL, I GOTTA DO)

IT'S A START
YOU BROKE MY HEART
IT'S SQUARE ONE
YOU SHOT THE GUN

PUT IT ALL BEHIND, YOU'RE NOT STUCK IN TIME
IT'S ANOTHER DAY, THERE'S ANOTHER WAY
WHERE TO GO FROM HERE, IT'S ALL UP TO YOU
YOU'RE NOT A SACRIFICE

SNAP OUT OF IT
IT'S ALRIGHT
IT'S NOT ALRIGHT
Track Name: Love Is Dangerous
YOU ARE AN ANIMAL
I COME TO LIFE
IN YOUR MAGIC HANDS
I FEEL ALIVE

OVERNIGHT IN THE SAND
MAKING ANGELS
IN THE LIGHT
OF THE MOON
LOVE IS DANGEROUS

PLEASE GO
I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE
RELEASE
ME FROM ALL THIS PAIN INSIDE
PLEASE GO
AND MAYBE I CAN BREATH AGAIN
LOVE IS DANGEROUS
DANGEROUS, DANGEROUS
FOR US

YOU TOOK ME BY SURPRISE
IT'S MUCH TOO FAST
YOU HAVE ANOTHER GIRL
HOW CAN BOTH LAST?

SURE WE THOUGHT
IT'S OUR CHOICE
THIS CAN'T HURT US
FORBIDDEN FRUIT
HAS NO MERCY
LOVE IS DANGEROUS

PLEASE GO
I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE
RELEASE
ME FROM ALL THIS PAIN INSIDE
PLEASE GO
AND MAYBE I CAN BREATH AGAIN
LOVE IS DANGEROUS
DANGEROUS, DANGEROUS
FOR US

INNOCENT I AM NOT
I'M AS GUILTY AS THE MOON
DROWNING US IN LOVE
Track Name: Appetite for Life
APPETITE, FEED THE NIGHT
TIME TO FEED, YOUR APPETITE FOR LIFE
SOMETHING HERE, MAKING ME HUNGRY
TIME TO FEED, MY APPETITE FOR LIFE

THE DEER DON'T ALWAYS SEE THE TIGER
BUT THE TIGER ALWAYS SEES THE DEER
SOMETIMES YOU THINK YOU ARE THE TIGER
BUT YOU END UP BEING THE DEER

APPETITE, FEED THE NIGHT
TIME TO FEED, YOUR APPETITE FOR LIFE
SOMETHING HERE, MAKING ME HUNGRY
TIME TO FEED, MY APPETITE FOR LIFE

ISN'T THIS A CRAZY GAME
DON'T YOU ALL FEEL THE SAME
DON'T YOU FEEL IT IN YOUR BLOOD
CAN'T CONTROL YOUR APPETITE
FEELING LIKE A PREDATOR
GETTING HIM GETTING HER
FIND A WAY OF WETTING HER
APPETITE FOR LIFE

APPETITE, FEED THE NIGHT
TIME TO FEED, YOUR APPETITE FOR LIFE
SOMETHING HERE, MAKING ME HUNGRY
TIME TO FEED, MY APPETITE FOR LIFE

THE DEER DON'T ALWAYS SEE THE TIGER
BUT THE TIGER ALWAYS SEES THE DEER
SOMETIMES YOU THINK YOU ARE THE TIGER
BUT YOU END UP BEING THE DEER

HOO OO, WON'T YOU TELL ME WHY YOU CAME
HOO OO WELCOME TO THE HUNGER GAME
HOO OO WON'T YOU TELL ME WHY YOU CAME
HOO OO, APPETITE FOR LIFE

APPETITE, FEED THE NIGHT
TIME TO FEED, YOUR APPETITE FOR LIFE
SOMETHING HERE, MAKING ME HUNGRY
TIME TO FEED, MY APPETITE FOR LIFE

JUST A NIBBLE, JUST A BITE
THINGS THAT GO BUMP IN THE NIGHT
WON'T YOU TELL ME WHY YOU CAME
WELCOME TO THE HUNGER GAME

HOO OO, WON'T YOU TELL ME WHY YOU CAME
HOO OO WELCOME TO THE HUNGER GAME
HOO OO WON'T YOU TELL ME WHY YOU CAME
HOO OO, APPETITE FOR LIFE

APPETITE, FEED THE NIGHT
TIME TO FEED, YOUR APPETITE FOR LIFE
SOMETHING HERE, MAKING ME HUNGRY
TIME TO FEED, MY APPETITE FOR LIFE
Track Name: I Have Faith in You
I HAVE FAITH IN YOU
BUT I SURE DON'T KNOW WHY
I HAVE FAITH IN YOU
BUT THIS IS GOOD BYE

NOW THAT YOU'RE GOING
I WONDER IF YOU EVER KNEW ME
WAS I JUST DREAMING
AND YOU WERE JUST LOOKING RIGHT THROUGH ME

I HAVE FAITH IN YOU
THAT YOU'LL LAND ON YOUR FEET
I HAVE FAITH IN YOU
I KNOW YOUR HEART BEAT

YOU MADE ME CRAZY
FROM TRYING TO DANCE IN YOUR FOOTSTEPS
IT MADE ME HAPPY
TO HAVE SUCH A PART IN YOUR PLAY

CELEBRATE
YOUR NEW LIFE
CELEBRATE
YOUR INDEPENDENCE
CELEBRATE
YOUR NEW LOVE
CELEBRATE
YOU'RE RIGHT

I HAD THE TIME OF MY LIFE
SO I THOUGHT
BUT WHEN IT ENDS
IT HURTS
Track Name: On the Other Side
I TOOK A FLIGHT TO THE OTHER SIDE
I SPENT THE NIGHT ON THE OTHER SIDE
AGAINST ALL THAT'S RIGHT ON THE OTHER SIDE

I'M RUNNING OUT OF SINS
I DON'T KNOW WHAT IS WRONG OR RIGHT
ALL KINDS OF CRAZY STUFF
BECAUSE I'M OUT OF LOVE TONIGHT

WHOA
IF LOVE'S NOT ENOUGH
WHOA
WHAT'S LIFE MADE OF?

I WENT TO PLAY TO ANOTHER PLACE
LOOKED IN THE EYE OF ANOTHER FACE
HOPE CAME AND WENT WITHOUT A TRACE

I'M RUNNING OUT OF SINS
I DON'T KNOW WHAT IS WRONG OR RIGHT
IF LOVE'S A GAME OF CHANCE
I WANT TO WISH YOU LUCK TONIGHT

WHOA
IF LOVE'S NOT ENOUGH
WHOA
WHAT'S LIFE MADE OF?

SO GRASS IS GREENER ON THE OTHER SIDE?
COULD LIFE BE MEANER ON THE OTHER SIDE?
FORGET WHAT YOU'VE SEEN HERE ON THE OTHER SIDE
Track Name: I Would Never
ACHING FOR YOUR TOUCH
NEEDING YOU SO MUCH
ROLLING IN THE PAIN
CRUEL PARADISE
SWEET SACRIFICE
WISHING YOU COULD FEEL
WHAT I FEEL
AM I ALL ALONE?

I WOULD NEVER FALL IN LOVE AGAIN
I WOULD NEVER TOUCH ANOTHER MAN
I SWEAR

LET YOUR LOVE COME DOWN
NEXT TO ME
TURN MY WORLD AROUND
ENDLESSLY
END THIS ENDLESS HURT
CRUEL PARADISE
SWEET SACRIFICE

I WOULD NEVER FALL IN LOVE AGAIN
I WOULD NEVER TOUCH ANOTHER MAN
I SWEAR

YOU'LL HAVE TO READ MY MIND
'CAUSE I WILL NEVER TELL

I WILL NEVER KNOW ANOTHER HEART
I WILL NEVER KNOW ANOTHER PART
I WILL NEVER FALL IN LOVE AGAIN
I SWEAR
