Track Name: Love Me Better
Well, love is good to her but she can not decide
Whether to cage it in, or watch it flutter by
It's still a mystery, but it will come with time, come with time
And come to think of it she's hanging on a line

Every preacher has a wisdom to cry out,
And every mad man has a reason for their doubt
Whether we're rich or broke, we're broken to ourselves
So she fell, a broken shell on the sea floor and her love was set to sail

And she said (x4)

If I paint my heart all gray, would you love me better?
When trouble goes your way, do you love me better, oh?
Even in Caribbean rays, my eyes are getting wetter
I will forget my shame if you love me better

And so she did, a little south of the border where they ran for it
What did she miss? When her love had enough he got up and packed his bags up and just ran for it
Forty seven days go by, seasons change but hearts stay cold and dry
So she stays home, in rain clouds of smoke and lakes of wine, say

If I paint my heart all gray, would you love me better?
When trouble goes your way, do you love me better, oh?
Even in Caribbean rays, my eyes are getting wetter
I will forget my shame if you love me better

And she said (x4)

If I paint my heart all gray, would you love me better?
When trouble goes your way, do you love me better, oh?
Even in Caribbean rays, my eyes are getting wetter
I will forget my shame if you love me better

If I paint my heart all gray, would you love me better?
When trouble goes your way, do you love me better, oh?
Even in Caribbean rays, my eyes are getting wetter
I will forget my shame if you love me better
Track Name: World In Colour
Petals on the bedroom floor
Withered from the weeks you cried
You hold your ring, trembling
Cause you know it fit just right

And remember the time when you'd
See the world in colour
Breathe the air that sings in the night
Living was easy, living was easy, whoa
Those days were heaven sent
Heaven gave you wings for a price
Where will you run when your wishing well goes dry?

Heavy rain and shattered frames
With merry faces of strangers to you
Soaked in bad blood and drawing borders
Memories haunt you in every corner, well

You're hurting yourself every time you remember the time when you'd
See the world in colour
Breathe the air that sings in the night
Living was easy, living was easy, whoa
Those days were heaven sent
Heaven gave you wings for a price
Where will you run when your wishing well goes dry?

Whoa (x4)

And remember the time when you'd
See the world in colour
Breathe the air that sings in the night
Living was easy, living was easy, whoa
Those days were heaven sent
Heaven gave you wings for a price
Where will you run when your wishing well goes dry?
Track Name: Millions
Dancing in the dark, catch me 'fore I fall
Things that mean the most to me, they don't matter at all
And that's fine, cause the only thing I need is your time
It's the innocence in me

Saving up our change
And playing all them games
Hearts that say they're young forever love the little things
And that's why it don't matter where this road leads tonight
It's the road for you and I

And I could spend my life with you, I could get away
Drive your car to open fields and let our heartache disappear
Not much in our pockets now, but from my point of view
Millions are within you baby, millions are in you

Living for the fame and waiting for a break
Forget all that commotion cause we're all one and the same
In your heart, there's no place I'd rather stay
So let's run, and we'll chase the sun again

And I could spend my life with you, I could get away
Drive your car to open fields and let our heartache disappear
Not much in our pockets now, but from my point of view
Millions are within you baby, millions are in you

All of your burdens, let them fall
Highways ahead, we'll find relief
Can't stop the rain so let it fall
And dance in the storm till we are weak

And I could spend my life with you, I could get away
Drive your car to open fields and let our heartache disappear
Not much in our pockets now, but from my point of view
Millions are within you baby, millions are in you

And I could spend my life with you, I could get away
Drive your car to open fields and let our heartache disappear
Not much in our pockets now, but from my point of view
Millions are within you baby, millions are in you
Track Name: Ocean
You are a wish from a star
Sunsets and happiness, the soul that you are
And while we had made it so far
Fate got the best of us, we drifted apart

But when roses don't mean a thing
And nothing can sing your restless heart to ease
Darling spread your wings, and roam across the sea

And don't let these moments pass you by
Your regrets, your missteps, are far behind
Time only knows when we will find
A shore to this ocean in the sky

Praise unto the light, we will fight and we will strive,
For the ones that will love you till forever dies
But it's more, more than words can say
These letters I write to you won't bring you back to me
Till we meet again, my joy, my youth, my friend

And don't let these moments pass you by
Your regrets, your missteps, are far behind
Time only knows when we will find
A shore to this ocean in the sky

And don't let these moments pass you by
Your regrets, your missteps, are far behind
Time only knows when we will find
A shore to this ocean in the sky
