Track Name: Closer
I was never good at hiding,
thought that I could rest the night in things we do for love.
I just want to learn to soften
my lips my heart, my eyes, then maybe I could see
all that you believe in me.

Like gold to its luster
like fire to heat
come on closer to me
come on closer baby.
Like blood in my veins
like roses to sweet
Come on closer to me
Come on closer baby.

You saw all the rage beneath me,
swallowed it and then released me
Things we do for love.
It's warmer in the space between us
In the distance I can feel you touch me like no other lover
Taught me strength
now I'm stronger

Like gold to its luster
like fire to heat
come on closer to me
come on closer baby.
Like blood in my veins
like roses to sweet
Come on closer to me
Come on closer baby.

Let it live and let it go now, but don't forget a thing
The reasons not to show it cannot hold onto this feeling
I'll let it flow into me....

Like gold to its luster
like fire to heat
come on closer to me
come on closer baby.
Like blood in my veins
like roses to sweet
Come on closer to me
Come on closer baby.
Track Name: Anchor Baby
I am married to the low tide
I'm an anchor baby, won't you take me to the sea.

You know well I like sweet things,
you can also tell I need a lil bit mean
so swallow me up in your undertow
I can't resist the hand that pulls me down~

I am married to the low tide
I'm an anchor baby, won't you take me to the sea.

You fed my darkest dreams with blood
cause you know my wedding night would come
Although I dressed myself in white
I was a nocturne red by the evening light~

I am married to the low tide
I'm an anchor baby, won't you take me to the sea.

I just wanna melt inside
the darkest parts of your quiet night
my love is a flame, the deepest ocean
I wanna show you my devotion~
Track Name: Hold Me
Flippin out I was cabin in, you came along and crawled under my skin
You're invited to love me dry.
Every time I put up a fight, you press me down but it feels alright.
Pretty curtains to hide behind.
So hold me...
Track Name: Into the Deep
Go slow or slash like a knife
I wanna be your sacrifice
Don't mind a little death
I know how to hold my breath
Sometimes I still forget there's nowhere else to go

Into the deep
There's too much we don't know
that's one reason we could follow
When you press your lips on mine
that's how we breath under water

If I should cast away
The fear would just chase after me
And so a little death
My only path to resurrection
Sometimes I still forget that I could just let go

Into the deep
Because I wanna know
why I'm angry, oh so hollow
When you press your lips on mine
that't how we breath under water

I said I was open but it was just a lie
The water was flowing, my mouth was running dry

Feels like dying it's why I have to go
Don't mean I'm fearless but I gotta let it go

Into the deep...
Track Name: Sailor
My man has sailed away
He said the wind was changing
but I said I didn't care
Oh no I said I didn't care

And now I am an island
bare save the shells that wash up to my shore

Oh why is no one hungry?

You used to bring me peaches
you used to bring me pearls
you were my favorite treasure
but you are not mine anymore

You could have been my Captian
I would have been your bride
You had to be a sailor
I had to keep my pride
Track Name: Love Alive
Uh oh I made a mess again
Can't get back where we started from
I wish you would look at me like you did
But you don't so
I'm drawing circles in the sand
I claw with fingernails my hands are pressed so hard against my chest
My beating heart won't let it rest cause

Ooh la la la
My love is so alive and I just can't hide, no I just can't hide it
Track Name: Red Balloon
Let your heart float like a red balloon
Remember the sea's northern wind
Where peaches taste sweeter with time in the sun
Let your heart float and let live
