Track Name: You
Because you know I’d never trust you,
cause’ trust is always earned.
But your passion feels like fire,
and I always end up burnt.

But your lips they taste like heaven,
and your smile it shines like gold.
I should have walked away when I could,
and listen to what I was told.

Ooh
This feels like heartbreak
Ooh
This feels like heartbreak

They never knew I really loved you,
think it’s just a passing faze.
But I cry when I think of you,
and I haven’t slept in days.

I feel empty when you leave me,
but i’m broken when you’re here.
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger,
and i’ve shed my final tear.

Ooh
This feels like heartbreak
Ooh
This feels like heartbreak


Cause you never felt the same way,
and deep down I always knew.
I was never your commitment,
but i’m still in love with you.

Cause’ you push me to my limits,
make me feel so insecure.
And I thought that I could change you,
‘till you’re walking out the door.

Ooh
This feels like heartbreak
Ooh
This feels like heartbreak
Track Name: Shush
When I ask you to shush.

I’ve been playing the fool and I followed your rules,
but you just wont let me go.
But you don’t blame yourself say i’ve found someone else,
but I guess you ought to know.

That i’m done with your games, go right back to the days,
when you play some other girls.
You can be by yourself, go on find someone else,
i’ll be someone else’s world.

I’m not tryna break your heart when you’re watching me leave.
But when I try to speak my mind god damn just let me speak.

When I ask you to shush,
I expect you to listen.
Boy who’d you think you’re talking to,
i’m not someone you can just dismissive, like my words mean nothing.
Oh i’m sick and tired of hearing how i’m wrong,
Its time that I get gone.

I know that you’re sorry, i’ve heard it before & it’s noises to my ears.
The sound of you breaking, I cannot take & it’s bringing me to tears.
But i’m not going back, cause I lost who I am and you broke me with your words.
And I tried to make sense but you stuck in yourself so my voice was never heard.

I’m not tryna break your heart when you’re watching me leave.
But when I try to speak my mind god damn just let me speak.

When I ask you to shush,
I expect you to listen.
Boy who’d you think you’re talking to,
I'm not someone you can just dismissive, like my words mean nothing.
Oh i’m sick and tired of hearing how i’m wrong,
Its time that we move on.

Talking ‘bout all the secrets that we keep.
All the things that we’re seeing in our dreams.
When I close my eyes, I don’t see me & you no more.

Talking ‘bout all the secrets that we keep.
All the things that we’re seeing in our dreams.
When I close my eyes, I don’t see me & you no more.

So when I ask you to shush,
I expect you to listen.
Boy who’d you think you’re talking to,
I'm not someone you can just dismissive, like my words mean nothing.
Oh i’m sick and tired of hearing how i’m wrong,
Its time that I get gone.
Track Name: Princess
Sleeping beauty left at 40,
Prince he said that she had turned boring.
Now he’s off with some new chick.

Pocahontas wanted one kiss,
John he said that it was pointless.
And they that should just end this.

‘Cause i’ll never be your Cinderella
and I can’t pretend that i’m Snow White.
and I wish that you could be less careless,
and we’ll never ride off into the night.

They say if the shoe fits i’ll find my Prince,
but the slippers in my hand makes it harder to stand on my own.
and they say with true loves one kiss i’ll find my Prince,
i’d rather be the one to be sitting alone on my throne.
I don’t need no prince to come.

Belle she thought that they were happy,
but the Beast he’d been round chatting
all the girls up in the town.

Jasmine knew that she was having
a child but never saw Aladdin.
He was no where to be found.

‘Cause i’ll never be your Cinderella
and I can’t pretend that i’m Snow White.
and I wish that you could be less careless,
and we’ll never ride off into the night.

They say if the shoe fits i’ll find my Prince,
but the slippers in my hand makes it harder to stand on my own.
and they say with true loves one kiss i’ll find my Prince,
i’d rather be the one to be sitting alone on my throne.
I don’t need no prince to come.
Track Name: Time Of Our Lives
Let's get drunk when we wake up,
let's get high to get down.
Let's get drunk when we wake up,
no more messing around,

We don't need sleep, no.
We came to party,
running ‘till 6am. 
We don't need sleep, no.
Come join the party, 
you can bring all your friends.

Even if its half past 2 or quarter to 5. 
We'll be up all night,
‘cause we’re living our lives. 
And even if the neighbours say that we need to rest.
I'll give them a pint,
And say let’s all get high. 
And have the time of our lives.

Let's get drunk till it's morning,
and watch the sun start to rise.
Let's get drunk till it's morning,
no more closing your eyes. 

We don't need sleep, no.
We came to party,
running ‘till 6am. 
We don't need sleep, no.
Come join the party, 
you can bring all your friends.

Even if its half past 2 or quarter to 5. 
We'll be up all night,
‘cause we’re living our lives. 
And even if the neighbours say that we need to rest.
I'll give them a pint,
And say let’s all get high. 
And have the time of our lives.
Track Name: Guns
You heard them shouting from the roof tops saying,
this is god’s job but i’m doing it for him,
‘cause he asked me to.

Shouting past the gun shots saying,
this is god’s job but i’m doing it for him,
‘cause he told me to.

One minute later i’d be laying on the floor.
As the blood begins to pour
and my head it feels so sore now.

I see them running through my neighbour hood.
It’s do or die will they survive,
‘cause I know that I won’t make it out alive.

So mama if you can hear
and daddy please don’t cry.
I’m safer than where I was
the day they took away my life.

The bullets they flew from riffles
and the screams were heard for miles.
They shouted about disciples,
I guess religion made them blind.

You heard them shouting god’s commandments,
saying this is their redemption and they’re doing it for him,
‘cause he asked them to.

They bleed for their religion,
and it’s god’s decision.
So they’re doing it for him, cause he told them to.

One minute later i’d be laying on the floor.
As the blood begins to pour
and my head it feels so sore now.

I see them running through my neighbour hood.
It’s do or die will they survive,
‘cause I know that I won’t make it out alive.

So mama if you can hear
and daddy please don’t cry.
I’m safer than where I was
the day they took away my life.

The bullets they flew from riffles
and the screams were heard for miles.
They shouted about disciples,
I guess religion made them blind.

bless them father for they have sinned.
All the victims they chose to kill,
all the people they left in horror and pain.

Bless them father for they have sinned.
All the victims they chose to kill,
all the people who watch and call their acts insane.
But they’re doing it all again.

So mama if you can hear
and daddy please don’t cry.
I’m safer than where I was
the day they took away my life.

The bullets they flew from riffles
and the screams were heard for miles.
They shouted about disciples,
I guess religion made them blind.
