Track Name: SONGS ABOUT SNOW
ALL THE THINGS I TAKE TO HEART
AND ALL THE THINGS I TAKE APART
ARE MEANINGLESS
AND ALL BECAUSE YOU THINK THAT YOU KNOW BEST. ALL THE THINGS PUT ON THE LINE
AND ALL THE THINGS THROWN ON THE FIRE
THEY'RE ALL FOR YOU
AND ALL BECAUSE OF THE STUPID THINGS YOU DO.

AND I WANT TO WRITE YOU SONGS ABOUT SNOW
ALL THE THINGS I THINK YOU SHOULD KNOW
AND I WANT TO WRITE YOU SONGS ABOUT LOVE
FROM INSIDE AND NOT FROM ABOVE

COME WITH ME COME GET YOUR GUN
COME WITH ME NOW YOU'RE NO FUN
YOU'RE BORING
JUST LIKE YOUR FRIENDS YOU ARE BORING
COME WITH ME YOU'RE OUT OF LUCK
NOW ALL I WANT TO DO IS FUCK
NO TALKING
NOT SINCE YOU SAID THAT I'VE BEEN STALKING
AND YOU DON'T IF I LIVE OR DIE
NO YOU DON'T IF I LIVE OR DIE
AND I FEAR I'VE WASTED MOST OF MY LIFE.

AND I WANT TO WRITE YOU SONGS ABOUT SNOW
ALL THE THINGS I THINK YOU SHOULD KNOW
AND I WANT TO WRITE YOU SONGS ABOUT LOVE
FROM INSIDE AND NOT FROM ABOVE

AND I WANT TO WRITE YOU SONGS ABOUT SNOW

I'LL ALWAYS STAND RIGHT HERE
AND BE YOUR MAN

AND I WILL LOVE YOU BIG AND STRONG

THE WORLD IS WRONG
YOU MAKE ME STRONG
NOW I AM RUNNING THROUGH THE FIRE
TO FACE IT HEAD IT HEAD ON
I'LL ALWAYS STAND RIGHT HERE
AND BE YOUR MAN
I PROMISE THAT I'LL NEVER DIE
I'LL NEVER LEAVE YOU KISSING PHOTOS
AND WONDERING WHY
I'LL ALWAYS STAND RIGHT HERE
AND BE YOUR MAN

Track Name: SMILE LIKE YOU REMEMBER ME
WALKING I'M WALKING I'M WALKING AWAY
I FORGOT THE WORDS FOR ANOTHER LONG DAY
CHEWING AND SMILING AND PASSING THE BLAME
SOMETIMES I WISH I COULD JUST WALK AWAY

SMILE LIKE YOU REMEMBER ME
SMILE LIKE YOU'RE IN LOVE
BECAUSE I'M IN LOVE WITH YOU
I'M SO IN LOVE WITH YOU
BUT NOW

I WANT YOUR LOVE, LOVE
I DON'T WANT TO REAP WHAT I SOW
THE BIGGEST MISTAKE THAT I EVER MADE
WAS ASKING YOU TO LEAVE ME ALONE

FIND ME THEN LOVE ME THEN LEAVE ME FOR DEAD
THEN FIND SOMEONE NEW TO FIX YOUR BROKEN HEAD
CHEWING AND SMILING AND PASSING THE BLAME
SOMETIMES I WISH I COULD FIZZLE AWAY

SMILE LIKE YOU REMEMBER ME
SMILE LIKE YOU'RE IN LOVE
BECAUSE I'M IN LOVE WITH YOU
I'M SO IN LOVE WITH YOU
BUT NOW

I WANT YOUR LOVE, LOVE
I DON'T WANT TO REAP WHAT I SOW
THE BIGGEST MISTAKE THAT I EVER MADE
WAS ASKING YOU TO LEAVE ME ALONE

SMILE LIKE YOU REMEMBER ME
SMILE LIKE YOU'RE IN LOVE
BECAUSE I'M IN LOVE WITH YOU
I'M SO IN LOVE WITH YOU
BUT NOW

I WANT YOUR LOVE, LOVE
I DON'T WANT TO REAP WHAT I SOW
THE BIGGEST MISTAKE THAT I EVER MADE
WAS ASKING YOU TO LEAVE ME ALONE
Track Name: JUST TO FIND YOU
YEH THAT'S RIGHT
YOU KNOW THE WAY
SEEN SO MANY SMILES
HERE TODAY
WELL YOU'VE SEEN ME
NOW LET'S HEAR YOU
YOU'VE ALL GONE OVERBOARD
AND ALL ASKEW

JUST TO FIND YOU
I WOULD DIE BLUE
JUST TO FIND YOU
HERE

NOW YOU KNOW
NOW YOU GLEAM

WRAPPED IN ME
I NEVER THOUGHT TO ASK
ARE YOU ALL OK
JUST SAY YOU'LL COME WITH ME
AND SLEEP ON THE WAY

JUST TO FIND YOU
I WOULD DIE BLUE
JUST TO FIND YOU
HERE

YEH THAT'S RIGHT (YEH YEH THAT'S RIGHT)
YOU SAID THAT'S RIGHT (YOU SAY THAT'S RIGHT)

OH THAT'S RIGHT (OH THAT'S RIGHT)

JUST TO FIND YOU
I WOULD DIE BLUE
JUST TO FIND YOU
HERE

I WANT THE WORLD TO ANSWER TO MY BECK AND CALL
I WANT THE WORLD TO THINK I KNOW IT ALL

I WANT YOU BY MY SIDE
I WANT YOU BY MY SIDE
I WANT YOU BY MY SIDE
YOU MAKE EVERYTHING ALRIGHT

AND WHEN THE WORLD COMES CRASHING DOWN
I HOPE YOU WILL STILL COME AROUND
TO MAKE ME SMILE ONE LAST TIME

Track Name: YOU AND THE STARS
I'VE COME UNDONE
I'M LAUGHING STARING AT THE SUN
AND ALL THE THINGS I'VE DONE
ROLED ALL IN TO ONE

AND WE COULD BE IN LOVE
WE COULD BE IN LOVE
AGAIN

WE'RE BURNING TRAINS
WE'RE ROLLING FIRE
WE'RE ACID RAINS
THE WORST KINDS OF LIAR

AND WE COULD BE IN LOVE
WE COULD BE IN LOVE
WE COULD BE IN LOVE
WE COULD BE IN LOVE
AGAIN

AND WHEN YOU'RE GONE THERE'S NOTHING LEFT EXCEPT YOU AND THE STARS
AND WHEN YOU'RE GONE THERE'S NOTHING LEFT EXCEPT YOU AND THE STARS BURNING IN LOVE
Track Name: HUMAN NOT A BEAST
I WAS BORN A HUMAN NOT A BEAST
FIND IT HARD TO KEEP THE PEACE
LEARNING LOTS FROM YOU
THINGS I SHOULDN'T DO
AND I WILL NEVER TELL THIS STORY AGAIN

MAKE YOUR OWN HEART THE LIAR
THROW YOURSELF ON MY FIRE
YOU WILL NEVER LEARN
YOU WILL NEVER LEARN
YOU WILL NEVER LEARN
YOU WILL JUST GET BURNED
AND YOU MUST KNOW BY NOW YOU DID THIS TO ME

SURELY YOU MUST UNDERSTAND
I WANTED YOU TO HOLD MY HAND?
PLEASE LET ME BE YOUR WORLD
I CAN'T BELIEVE THAT YOU WERE EVER
MY FAVOURITE GIRL
Track Name: FROG IN A SNAKE'S BELLY
WALKING AROUND YOU'RE NOWHERE TO BE FOUND
THE SMILING EYES ARE LOOKING AT THE GROUND
AND YOU'LL NEVER GET WHAT YOU WANT FROM ME
BECAUSE YOU ARE AS FREE AS A FROG IN A SNAKE'S BELLY
GET RIGHT WITH GOD
FILL THE AIR WITH YOUR WORDS
GET RIGHT WITH GOD
FORCE HALLELUJAS

YOU CAN NEVER WALK WITHOUT A SOUND
THE SMILING EYES ARE LOOKING AT THE GROUND
AND YOU'LL NEVER GET WHAT YOU WANT FROM ME
BECAUSE YOU ARE AS FREE AS A FROG IN A SNAKE'S BELLY
GET RIGHT WITH GOD
FILL THE AIR WITH YOUR WORDS
GET RIGHT WITH GOD
FORCE HALLELUJAS
GET RIGHT WITH GOD
FILL THE AIR WITH YOUR WORDS
GET RIGHT WITH GOD
FORCE HALLELUJAS
Track Name: THE SEA
WHEN I BROKE THE WINDOW OF MY CAR WHEN I WAS DRIVING
I FELT SAD I FELT KINDA LIKE I WAS DYING
THE GIRL I WAS SEEING SHE MADE ME MORE ANGRY THAN I HAD EVER BEEN
I FELT LIKE I HAD LOST CONTROL

THEN WE WENT TO THE SEA
THAT'S WHERE I WANTED TO BE
WE SAT DOWN AT THE WATER'S EDGE
AND TALKED ABOUT DEATH

WELL I KNOW THAT I CAN SOMETIMES BE LOOSE WITH MY TONGUE
BUT LISTEN TO ME IT'S JUST HARMLESS FUN
YOU SAY THAT EVERY ACTION HAS A REACTION
THEN SURELY I'M NOT TO BLAME BECAUSE I WAS REACTING

TAKE ME TO THE SEA
THAT'S WHERE I WANT TO BE
BECAUSE SINCE I MOVED AWAY FROM HOME
I MISS THE SEA
TAKE ME TO THE SEA
THAT'S WHERE I WANT TO BE
SIT DOWN AT THE WATER'S EDGE AND TALK ABOUT DEATH

CLOSE THE DOOR I DON'T WANT TO SEE YOU ANYMORE

I CAN'T GET OUT OF BED BUT I STAND BY WHAT I SAID
I CAN'T GET OUT OF BED BUT I STAND BY WHAT I SAID

MOON'S AS FULL AS IT CAN BE
OVER DYING MYSTERIES OF LOVE
I FLEW HIGH AS I COULD GO
BY YOUR SIDE I'D GLOW AND GLOW AND GLOW

ALL HANDS ON DECK
ALL HANDS BURY THE HEAD

OCEAN FLOORS ARE LINED WITH BOATS
ATTIC SPACES FILLED WITH NOTES FROM YOU
I WAS BAD AS I COULD BE
HOPE IT'S TRUE BUT WE WILL SEE
WHO KNOWS

ALL HANDS ON DECK
ALL HANDS BURY THE HEAD
