Track Name: Kind of Blue
Somewhere in the sun
I’ve got to find a place to call my own
I’m on my own
I got to kill this chill that’s in my bones

I’m going home
I’ve had enough, enough of being alone
I’m not alone
I’m tired of being a lover on his own

I don’t know why
I never feel alive
A soul on fire
Another compromise
Everything you do
I try to do it too
“Kind of Blue”
Reminds me of you

Everyday is new
I try to face the fear I feel it’s good
They say it’s good
I’ve got to clear my mind I feel I should

Let go of you
We never talk but always spoke the truth
I hope it’s true
God I hope I still got something good

I don’t know why
I never feel alive
A soul on fire
Another compromise
Everything you do
I try to do it too
“Kind of Blue”
Reminds me of you
Track Name: Sew Me Up
Riding high on, on the wings of
Something I don’t know
Crashing down fast, nothing ever lasts
But I’m back for more

Cut me down, sew me up
I have never had enough
I want it all, I want it now
And I don’t care how

Breaking free from, the ties that bind us
So we can go it alone
I had once thought, that love would save us
But love was not enough

Cut me down, sew me up
I have never had enough
I want it all, I want it now
And I don’t care how
Track Name: Wild Nights
The night’s alive
There’s love in her eyes
It fades to black
I don’t want you back

The days were long
I knew it felt wrong
I had to run
And now I’m long gone

My skeleton’s they keep me up
I used to crave your every touch
The night’s were wild and full of lust
We’d drink our weight then sleep it off
My skeleton’s they keep me up
I used to crave your every touch
But now I lie awake alone
And watch you fade away, you’re gone

The bitter truth
A broken noose
The angry nights
The tears we cried

The ghosts will stay
As long as you say
“I love her so,
He’ll never know”

My skeleton’s they keep me up
I used to crave your every touch
The night’s were wild and full of lust
We’d drink our weight then sleep it off
My skeleton’s they keep me up
I used to crave your every touch
But now I lie awake alone
And watch you fade away, you’re gone

The taste of love
Was not enough
And broken hearts
Leave the deepest scars

The things we did
To get you in bed
But in the end
There was nothing left

My skeleton’s they keep me up
I used to crave your every touch
The night’s were wild and full of lust
We’d drink our weight then sleep it off
My skeleton’s they keep me up
I used to crave your every touch
But now I lie awake alone
And watch you fade away, you’re gone
Track Name: Desire and the Need to Live
Summer romance, feeling the heat
Trying to find, a moment to breathe
Making memories, out in the park
Out in the sun, then out in the dark

Painted nails, chipped, summer dress
Hearing art then, looking impressed
Life has tried, to fuck with us
But you can’t stop, a heart in love

Last call, last drink, last night
Trying to find someone to fight
Less love, less lust, less life
Raise a glass, we’re still alive

Trying to convince us, all that it works
Trying to break out but, stuck in reverse
The devil came and, took you away
Another lie, told another way

An angry message, coloured in green
I guess I’m blocked, she ain’t gonna see
My final words, can’t comprehend
But words in song, must sound the end

Last call, last drink, last night
Trying to find someone to fight
Less love, less lust, less life
Raise a glass, we’re still alive
