Track Name: Other Possibilities (feat. Mike Shaw)
When I first saw you
I didn't have a clue
That one day we'd be where we are
I was too wrapped up in the past
Had to let it go, let it be
Now I’m finally free

I'm open to other possibilities
Open to the idea of you and me
Open to whatever we could be
I'm ready for other possibilities
Ready to let my imagination run free
Ready for you and me

Now I see you
Right in front of me
There's no place I'd rather be
Shed my skin in the echoes of the past
Let it go, let it be
Now it's time for me

I'm open to other possibilities
Open to the idea of you and me
Open to whatever we could be
I'm ready for other possibilities
Ready to let my imagination run free
Ready for you and me
Track Name: Now!
Circling each other
On the dance floor
Moving closer together
Let our hands explore

Want me (you know you want me)
Take me (go ahead and take me)
Use me (come on just use me)
Now!

Feeling the heat
Of your skin
My heart skips a beat
As I let you in

Want me (you know you want me)
Take me (go ahead and take me)
Use me (come on just use me)
Now!

Hearts pounding
Bodies touching
Sweat dripping
Lips brushing

Want me (you know you want me)
Take me (go ahead and take me)
Use me (come on just use me)
Now!
Track Name: Crystal Blue
Sitting on my couch
Listening to you play guitar
Makes me crave your touch
Want you to make me part of your repertoire

Crystal blue eyes
Captivate and mesmerize
Like fuel to a fire
Igniting flames of desire

It’s more than physical
This spark between us
It’s cerebral it’s emotional
Lust entangled with trust

Crystal blue eyes
Captivate and mesmerize
Like fuel to a fire
Igniting flames of desire

Funny how easy it is to go
From a look to a touch to a kiss to...

Crystal blue eyes
Captivate and mesmerize
Like fuel to a fire
Igniting flames of desire
Track Name: You Kiss Me
You came along when I didn’t expect it
You came along and changed my world
You looked at me and drew me in
You held me close…within

You kiss me with those lips of yours
You kiss me
You leave me wanting so much more
You kiss me

You touch me and make me shiver
Every nerve is alive you make me quiver
You looked at me and now I’m drowning
You held me deep inside and now I’m living

You kiss me with those lips of yours
You kiss me
You leave me wanting so much more
You kiss me and it’s magic
You kiss me

Now I’m drowning
Now I’m living

You kiss me with those lips of yours
You kiss me
You leave me wanting so much more
You kiss me and it’s magic
You kiss me
Track Name: Run Away with Me (feat. Electric Runner)
Did the stars align
when we met
This moment in time
Could it be kismet
Quiet conversation
as the world faded around us
Feelings of elation
As we start to build our trust

Run away with me for a while
I promise you
I’ll make you smile

Run away with me for all time
I’ll be yours
Will you be mine

Runaway with me
And I’ll show you love

Looks exchanged
Hearts become entangled
Priorities rearranged
Kissing you is more than I can handle
I feel so secure
In your embrace
I’ve never been more sure
I’ve found my place


Run away with me for a while
I promise you
I’ll make you smile

Run away with me for all time
I’ll be yours
Will you be mine

Runaway with me
And I’ll show you love

A vision in leather and lace
Our fingers entwine
Feel our hearts race
Someone like you is rare to find

Run away with me for a while
I promise you
I’ll make you smile

Run away with me for all time
I’ll be yours
Please be mine

Runaway with me
And I’ll show you love
Track Name: Just This Time
I can tell that we’re drifting apart
I can tell that you’re holding back
I can tell you’re guarding your heart
I can tell we’re so off track

Lie to me just this time
Take me back to when we were fine
Give me this final night
Where things still feel right

I know you’re in your head
I know you’re in self-protection mode
Won’t you just talk to me instead
Please don’t let me go

Lie to me just this time
Take me back to when we were fine
Give me this final night
Where things still feel right

Once you were my hurricane baby
It was so much simpler then
Riding out the storm with me
Didn’t even think there’d be an end

Lie to me just this time
Take me back to when we were fine
Give me this final night
Where things still are alright

I can tell that we’re drifting apart…
Track Name: Nonchalant
This is the part I hate
It's all very hurry up and wait
Everything is so unsure
All I want is to be assured

Can we skip ahead to where we know
That this is what we want
Do we have to act so nonchalant
There's no need to take it slow
Isn't this what we want
Do we have to act so nonchalant

They say this is the best part
I don't think they're all that smart
I want to get to where we're sure
Where I can feel secure

Can we skip ahead to where we know
That this is what we want
Do we have to act so nonchalant
There's no need to take it slow
Isn't this what we want
Do we have to act so nonchalant

Give me the surety of a sunrise
Versus all these butterflies

Can we skip ahead to where we know
That this is what we want
Do we have to act so nonchalant
There's no need to take it slow
Isn't this what we want
Do we have to act so nonchalant

Let’s skip ahead to where we know
This is what we want
Let's not take it slow
No need to act so nonchalant
Track Name: Running Out of Time (feat. Hanna Wilde)
First you pull me in
Then you push me away
Am I just your friend?
What should I say?
I’m so confused
By the way you act
What is this to you?
Fiction or fact

What should I do?
It’s all up to you
You’ve got me spinning round
Barely touching ground
Make up your mind
You’re wasting time
My love is on the line
We’re running out of time

What is your intent?
I’m not quite sure
Should I try to circumvent?
Just leave you wanting more
Could this be a game?
And who will win
It’s like a runaway train
Come on, let me in

What should I do?
It’s all up to you
You’ve got me spinning round
Now I’m losing ground
Make up your mind
You’re just wasting time
My love is on the line
We’re running out of time
Track Name: I Can’t Recall
Late at night is when you cross my mind
Do you think of the one you left behind
Do you ever have any regret
Or am I truly that easy to forget

Would you come running if I call
Would you finally be the one to fall
Isn't it funny I can't recall
Who loved whom after all

Sunrise finds me still awake
Tossing and turning no sleep awaits
The thoughts of you run circles in my head
The absence of you haunts me in my bed

Would you come running if I call
Would you finally be the one to fall
Isn't it funny I can't recall
Who loved whom after all

Did we fail on a colossal scale
Or did we win while losing everything

Would you come running if I call
Would you finally be the one to fall
Isn't it funny I can't recall
Who loved whom after all

Isn't it funny I can't recall
Track Name: The Origin of Sadness
The letting go is the hardest part
Especially when your heart is so stubborn
It keeps believing things will change
While the brain says impossible

I can’t help but wonder who you’re with tonight
And what makes him so much better than me
Though I try to reconcile my heart and mind
Therein lies the origin of sadness

So what do I do with all this love for you?
That you can’t seem to accept
Do I keep it safe and locked inside?
With the hope that one day you’ll come to your senses

I can’t help but wonder who you’re with tonight
And what makes him so much better than me
Though I try to reconcile my heart and mind
Therein lies the origin of sadness

They say time will make everything better
But they are fools who really don’t know any better

I can’t help but wonder who you’re with tonight
And what makes him so much better than me
Though I try to reconcile my heart and mind
Therein lies the origin of sadness
Track Name: The In-Between (feat. Mike Shaw)
Not sure I can do this
But I’ll follow your lead
Not sure I’m strong enough
To be what you need

We’re not quite friends and definitely not lovers
But I still can’t fathom being with another
The in-between is never what it seems
Want to escape this nightmare and trade it in for a dream

Not sure I can do this
Here I am with my soul laid bare
All dignity gone
Begging you to care

We’re not quite friends and definitely not lovers
But I still can’t fathom being with another
The in-between is never what it seems
Want to escape this nightmare and trade it in for a dream

I don’t know what this is or what it means
The space between love and friendship
Lost in the in-between

We’re not quite friends and definitely not lovers
But I still can’t fathom being with another
The in-between is never what it seems
Want to escape this nightmare and trade it in for a dream
