Track Name: Iridescence
Waking to sunlight on soft white sheets
every morning I’m new
open my eyes, chase the light
keep shifting through

And I am never the same as I once was
nor will I ever be the same again
married with space & time
everything is always moving always flowing ’til the end

Ooh, all I know is
the only constant in life is change
See the beauty in now, in this fleeting moment
Where nothing can ever be the same

You and I (we’re iridescent)
ever-gleaming things, we are
Nobody can catch us, nobody can touch us
Running free as we are

You and I (we’re iridescent)
ever-gleaming things, we are
Nobody can catch us, nobody can touch us
Running free as we are

It’s beautiful to see life happen
to lose the fear and just go
wild and pure – with open hearts
Watch us live. Watch us glow.
Track Name: The War
Sometimes, I hear my fear crying
louder than usual, and I feel so small
these times, I’m tired of trying
in doubts I am drowning,
and it gets so hard to trust myself

and I, I want to feel nothing
be immune to the buzzing, from all the noise
And right, when everything’s crashing
I feel my heart beating
and I remember why I breathe

Sometimes,
it’s okay to be weak
We’re all human, we all know this
What matters is your will to get back up
To be resilient, and keep living

You gotta fight for who you want to be
Hold on, it’s not easy, believe me
Oh

But if you keep on
it won’t matter in the end how
many battles have been lost
cause we fought; and that’s how the war is won

I know, it’s just for the moment
my judgment is clouded, in the eye of the storm
and though, I may have fallen
I’ll gather my strength and
know that tomorrow I’ll rise again

‘cause
it’s okay to be weak
We’re all human, we all know this
What matters is your will to get back up
To be resilient, and keep living

You gotta fight for who you want to be
Hold on, it’s not easy, believe me
Oh

But if you keep on
it won’t matter in the end how
many battles have been lost
cause we fought; and that’s how the war is won
Track Name: Magnetic
You got this power over me
I can’t be away from you for too long
The minute you’re gone, I’m missing you already
You keep pulling me on

I don’t like to admit, you’re so hard to resist
But baby you’ve got all my attention
And I try to ignore when you call me back for more
But I always find myself giving in

Magnetic, I feel the tension from afar
There’s a force that’s pulling me back to you
And the energy of our chemistry ignites when we’re apart
It’s electric, ooh
And I know you feel it too

Boy – nothing gets old with you
And I just can’t get enough
Breaking records, it’s like the honeymoon lasts forever
let’s indulge in this crazy love

And I have to admit, you’re so hard to resist
baby you’ve got all my attention
I can’t try to ignore when you call me back for more
I always find myself giving in

Magnetic, I feel the tension from afar
There’s a force that’s pulling me back to you
And the energy of our chemistry ignites when we’re apart
It’s electric, ooh
And I know you feel it too
Track Name: Alison's Song
This feels like an old world
Where I used to belong
But not quite, not quite anymore

Everything is where it should be
Everything is right where I left it
But something I can’t put my finger on
Is not right
I’m not right

Please take me home
To someplace I can feel all right
Someplace I’ll feel like myself again

I need somebody (to love me)
To hold me through the night
Bring me back to life
Cause I’m not right
I’m not right

Where do I go
When home is not home anymore
And all that’s left is a memory (a memory)
All that’s left is me

Everything is where it should be
Everything is right where I left it
But something I can’t put my finger on
Is not right

Please take me home
To someplace I can feel all right
Someplace I feel like myself again

I need somebody (to love me)
To hold me through the night
Bring me back to life
Track Name: String Theory
Can you feel me, so far away?
I still dream about you here
Do you remember me like I remember you?
Or has it started fade?

Time and space have paved their way
your city’s eyes and veins have changed
New lines trace years gone by, and I
can only imagine your face

We are stars apart
One beginning a life; another at its end
If I could unravel the time
then maybe our lives will align
I’ll be by your side, again

We’re living out of memories
I fear its almost out of reach
Do you feel my heart still beating for you?
I just miss you

We are stars apart
One beginning a life; another at its end
If I could unravel the time
then maybe our lives will align
I’ll be by your side, again
oh, again
