Track Name: Kaleidoscope
Found my way, not turning back
I never looked for what I've had
The golden locks and diamond gates
A heart that longs is bound to wait

The downtown streets they call my name
They're paved with stars and dreams and fate
But once again I find my head in my hands....
Fighting off this deja vu

So look through my Kaleidoscope and tell me what you see
A thousand drums a hundred miles looking back at me
Stars are falling hearts are calling so let's go - o - o
You can have it if you want it just let go - o - o

My heart is pressing from inside
I'm less dead than I am alive
I see the golden shape of sound
I know I'm floating, don't look down

You're living in a gilded cage
The ghosts are gone, come out and play
But once again there goes my head in my hands....
Oh you give me deja vu....

So look through my Kaleidoscope and tell me what you see
A thousand drums a hundred miles looking back at me
Stars are falling hearts are calling so let's go - o - o
You can have it if you want it just let go - o - o

Astronauts and periscopes - light beams on the radio
You're not broken
Polaroids and paper bags - cellophane and telegraphs
Breaking open
Breaking open

So look through my Kaleidoscope and tell me what you see
A thousand drums a hundred miles looking back at me
Stars are falling hearts are calling so let's go - o - o
You can have it if you want it just let go - o - o

So look through my Kaleidoscope and tell me what you see
A thousand drums a hundred miles looking back at me
Stars are falling hearts are calling so let's go - o - o
You can have it if you want it - oh
You can have it if you want it, ohhhhhh
Track Name: Touch Me Love
hear the footsteps marking time
A lonely trip around the sun and stars again
I hear the deep harmonic chime
Now touch my body turn me on again

Oh oh oh oh....
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh.....

The days and nights are rushing by
The hand of consequence is all I've ever known
Oh we tremble as we climb
The tower of our fragile love - touch me, touch me love!

Oh oh oh oh....
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh.....

Days and nights
Days and nights

Touch me, touch me love - touch me, touch me love.....
Track Name: Fragile
she put the feather in my hand
said one day i'd understand
i see you're just like i am -
i am - i am
like a feather you can float
but your anchor is a stone
so why you keep on flying
so close to the sun?

those the words she said to me:
you are heavy are free
don't get so lost in your dream
that you forget what is real
you're a feather, you are stone
when you fall you break like bone
don't you know you're fragile…..

Fragile - We are we are we are
Don't you know you're
Fragile - We are we are we are
we are we are we are

then the conversation turns
to the house your passion burned
now why you keep on flying
so close to the sun?
when that road has left you raw
with every stone and every flaw
but still you keep on trying -
even tho you're

Fragile - We are we are we are
Don't you know you're
Fragile - We are we are we are
we are we are we are

So close to the sun
So close to the sun
So close to the sun
We are we are we are,
we are we are we are
Track Name: Weather
haven't slept much - for the past week - you keep on raising your hands
your redemption - in your bare feet - nobody understands
when they all said - it was a breakdown - the spaceship's starting to crack
you take your shoes off - make a clean break - promise you're coming back
open road with all your history
she just won't stop talking to the trees

there's not a soul that can save us now
'cause it's all, all or nothing when the curtain comes down
don't blame yourself - we'll blame it on the weather
there's not a soul that can save us now
'cause it's all, all or nothing when the curtain comes down
don't blame yourself - we'll blame it on the weather

you make a phone call - you sing a love song - your heart beats in in your head
your mind is racing - thru the cosmos - the ground is falling away
you throw your hands up - you let it all go - and you're finally free
you say you'll take me - to put my hands up - to feel what you feel

there's not a soul that can save us now
'cause it's all, all or nothing when the curtain comes down
don't blame yourself - we'll blame it on the weather
there's not a soul that can save us now
'cause it's all, all or nothing when the curtain comes down
don't blame yourself - we'll blame it on the weather

it'll be alright - it'll be alright - it'll be alright - can you tell me?
it'll be alright - it'll be alright - it'll be alright - can you tell me?
it'll be alright - it'll be alright - it'll be alright - it'll be alright it'll be alright -
no I'm not afraid…. no no… no no no no no

there's not a soul that can save us now
'cause it's all, all or nothing when the curtain comes down
don't blame yourself - we'll blame it on the weather
there's not a soul that can save us now
'cause it's all, all or nothing when the curtain comes down
don't blame yourself - we'll blame it on the weather

there's not a soul that can save us now now now now
Track Name: On Our Own
floating we were up all night
changing everything
running on a beauty prize
chasing down the dream

i didn't mean to lose my head
Tristan plays along
we're naked in the swimming pool
we're just doing what we want…..

we're on our own - don't be mad at us
we're on our own - yeah yeah yeah
we're only young - don't be mad at us
we'll find our way - yeah yeah yeah

rooftop counting satellites
tripping from the high
you're playing with a loaded gun
i fall into the sky

i fall into the sky…..

we're on our own - don't be mad at us
we're on our own - yeah yeah yeah
we're only young - don't be mad at us
we'll find our way - yeah yeah yeah

we're on our own - don't be mad at us
we're on our own - yeah yeah yeah
we're only young - don't be mad at us
we'll find our way - yeah yeah yeah
Track Name: Metropolis
we met on a moving train - dreaming big city dreams
the wanting you cannot shake
suddenly me and you - everything feels new
the ache in it starts to fade

now we're free from our memories - 'cause it's only you and me
we won't let it get away
they all said the same thing, but we'll do it differently
we won't make the same mistakes….

then we built this, our metropolis
now we're asking if it's really all there is

when you're so close - but so far away
yeah i'm so close…. but i'm so far away….

it comes - it comes - it's coming ever faster
it's all - you are - that memory you're after
you push - you fall - you let it get away

i beat - i claw - i'm scratching at the surface
i can't - get back - now i am disconnected
can you help me, help me find my way?

be my compass - be my guide
be my roadmap - help me through the night
be my compass - be my guide
be my roadmap - help me through the night

yeah we're so close…. but so far away…..
