Track Name: Ever After
Iesu wa watashitachi to desu!
イエスは私たちとです。
(Jesus is with us!)

Did you know,
That true love isn't just in your soul,
It's an actual place you can go.
And it's free,
You don't have to have cash or a key,
If you only remember the road.
To Once Upon A Time,
When you believed,
In Ever Afters, happy endings,
And what you couldn't see.
When your soul knew desire,
Your heart was on fire,
And life as you knew it,
Went on for eternity.

We all dance with destiny,
And hope to succeed.
But will we ever learn,
To let our heart fire lead?
Like nothing in this world,
Is guaranteed...
But an open invitation to believe...

There is a Higher Power,
Watching over you.
For your mere existence,
Is His dream come true.
And all He wants is,
To be holding you,
When your eyes never open again.
When you don't,
Have to feel alone anymore.
When you’ve realized,
You never were,
And you're about to feel,
A Love like none before,
From the only Friend,
Whose affection for you,
Will never end,
Cause He chose your heart,
To discover,
Once Upon A Time again.

Iesu wa watashitachi to desu!
イエスは私たちとです。
(Jesus is with us!)

Young hearts!

Young hearts make old decisions,
Sometimes our lives turn into prisons.
Why welcome slavery,
When all we truly desire is to be free,
From that private pain,
Deep down I know,
You get what I'm saying,
It hurts to feel so far away,
From that Unconditional...
Indescribable...Undeniable...

Higher Power watching over you,
For your mere existence is,
His dream come true.
And all He wants is to be holding you,
When your eyes never open again.
(When you rise again.)
When you don't have to feel,
So alone anymore,
Cause the truth is that you never were,
And you're about to feel,
A Love like none before,
From the only Friend,
Whose affection for you,
Will never end,
And He'll hold your heart,
Until you're holding,
Once Upon A Time again.

...And again,
We walk down that street,
Where it's so easy to forget the One,
Who gave your heart a beat.
But He'll never forget you,
He wants your fairy tale to come true,
And all you have to do is be ready...

Ready to sing your heart out,
Dance your heart out,
Live, love, and romance your heart out,
Where no one ever cries,
Where your spirit never dies.
Believe your heart out,
There is no doubt,
God's fire will never go out.
Long live that Light...
The Love that,
Brought you to life!

Life moves so fast,
You know it won't last,
So please let my heart lead,
To Ever After and on,
Where it can be freed,
From feeling ever torn,
By the crossfire of life's raging storm,
Where no one's alone,
Where every peasant and prince,
Is an heir to the throne,
And a happy ending is,
All it takes to make known,
(Should have known...)
Ever After was always your home!

Higher Power watching over you,
For your mere existence,
Is His dream come true.
And all He wants is to be holding you,
When your eyes never open again.
(When you rise again.)
And you don’t have to feel,
Alone anymore,
You don’t have to wait,
'Til you’re at the Gate,
To feel the Love like none before.
Cause Once Upon A Time can be,
How your life goes on for infinity,
Where your heart and soul fly so free...
(your heart and your soul soar free)...

For Ever After On!
For Ever After On!
Oh yeah!

And even if you don’t believe it’s true...
There’s a Once Upon A Time waiting just for you!
Track Name: Game Over
There’s so much in my heart,
That is dying to break out.
Maybe you can understand,
What that’s all about.
Have you loved? Have you lost?
Did you ever imagine,
You’d pay the cost,
When you found that someone,
You just can’t live without.

You’re not alone.
Your heart was my home.
And I know it can get ugly,
When we feel like we’re on our own.
But you were the one for me,
Baby, can’t you see,
You’re everything that I,
Long to be with in life.
My heart was locked,
And you found the key.

You make me feel how I see you.
Like nothing in this world,
Could come close to you.
From Day 1, you had me,
Down on one knee,
Crying, “Game Over!”
You completed me.

There’s so much in my heart,
I am dying to tell you tonight.
Cause I just can’t seem to,
Go down without a fight.
Don’t you know it was true,
When I swore on my soul,
I would die for you.
And to be your hero,
Forevermore is,
All that I wanted to do.

You make me feel,
How I see you.
Like nothing in this life,
Could ever undo our love,
That got me down,
On one knee,
Crying, “Game Over!”
You Completed me.

I know you’ve,
Heard this all before,
But I can’t,
Take it anymore.
I just want you to know,
That when you’re around,
My heart hits the ceiling,
I still get that feeling,
That keeps me believing,
Our love won’t stay down.

You make me feel how I see you,
Like nothing in this world,
Could come close to you.
You’re my one, my only eternity,
You’re my Game Over Girl...

And it’s hard to believe,
That you’re not the one for me.
Track Name: In You
He who began a good work in you,
He who began a good work in you,
Will be faithful to complete it,
Will be faithful to complete it.
He who started the work will be,
Faithful to complete it in you.

He who’s defeating the strife in you,
Yeah, he who created a life in you,
Will be faithful to complete it,
Will be faithful to complete it.
He who started the work will be,
Faithful to complete it in you.

Gloria! Gloria! Glory to the King of Kings.
Gloria! Gloria! Glory to His Holiness.
Lord, we lift up your name,
With hearts full of praise.
We exalt you, oh Lord our God,
Hosanna in the Highest!

Our God,
Is an awesome God,
He reigns,
From Heaven above,
With wisdom,
power, and love,
Our God,
Is an awesome God.

Our God...yeah!

Is He who began a good work in you,
And He who began a good work in you,
Will be faithful to complete it,
Will be faithful to complete it.
He who started the work will be,
Faithful to complete it in you.

He who started the work will be,
Faithful to complete it in you!

Our Father in Heaven,
Who started the work,
Will be faithful to,
Complete it in you.
Track Name: Hunter
Hunter was your name.
Hero was your game.
You showed me the way,
With the smile on your face,
Chasing tears in your eyes away.
But you don’t have to cry anymore.
There was something in your life,
Worth fighting for.
And you fought every last fight,
Like you just couldn’t lose.
I can still see your sweet face,
And it ain’t got the blues.

Now all I see when towers fall,
When my back is up against a wall,
When I’m drowning in life’s misery,
Are the brightest eyes I’ve ever known,
And because of you I know I’m not alone,
You’re here with me.

There are some things in this life,
That don’t go away.
Like the way you made me see,
Beyond yesterday.
And the smile on your face,
That I’ll never erase,
Is the reason I’m smiling today.

Through all of your pain,
You never complained.
But you wouldn’t stay,
Cause your smile gave you wings,
I don’t blame you for flying away.
And I know that you’re not very far,
Because I close my eyes at night,
And there you are,
Looking like you were always meant to,
Every day of my life, I see you,
Shining on just as bright as ever.

Cause there are some things in this life,
That don’t go away.
Like the way you made me see,
Beyond yesterday.
And that smile on your face,
I won’t ever erase,
Is the reason I’m smiling today. Yeah!

Life cheated! But you beat it,
And won anyway,
When you lived more love,
In those wonder years,
Than the world alive today.
Hey, Hunter - Me?
Yeah! You, little brother,
Your heart still shines,
Brighter than any other,
And if you were here,
I know what you’d say...

“I may not be the biggest,
Or the brightest in the sky,
Mistaken for a falling star,
When I go flying by.
But there’s one thing,
I’m sure of,
Wherever I go...
I brighten the world,
Wherever I glow.
Because I’m somebody,
To somebody somewhere.
Something special,
I’m somebody’s find.
And ain’t it something,
That wherever I go,
I brighten the world,
Wherever I shine.

So let yourself,
Shine, shine, shine!
Why not brighten,
Somebody’s day?
You don’t have to be a star,
To shine your light far...
You can make the
World brighter
In your own
little way.” ***

Some things in this life,
Just don't go away.
Like the way you made me see,
Beyond yesterday.
And the smile on your face,
I could never erase,
Is the reason I'm smiling today.

Cause there are some things in this life,
That don't go away.
Like the way you made me see,
Beyond yesterday.
And the smile on your face,
I won't ever erase,
Is the reason I'm smiling today.

Little brother in my life,
I won't go away.
Cause you're the reason I can see,
Beyond yesterday.
And the smile on your face,
That I'll never erase,
Is the reason I'm smiling...
You're the reason I'm smiling today.

Track Name: Chasing The Sunset
He wakes with a smile,
That he just can’t hide.
It’s a normal, new day,
But he’s different inside.
He was changed,
When he found you,
Like never before...
The girl down the hall,
He could talk to,
Forevermore.

Then you’re gone,
Pressure’s on.
You’re the light of his life,
And he knows it.
So he’s chasing the chance,
To walk through the,
Door of your life...
Before you close it.

He’s searched from day to day,
Hoping for someone who would stay.
(Could you stay?)
Girl, you are the sunset,
And he is the one,
You know and you walk away.

Now the time has flown,
And your light has grown.
Sweet Katrina,
He can’t let go of you.
Heaven knows he’s tried,
But he’s on your side.
Won’t you chance what is,
Right in front of you?
Cause he knows your heart,
Craves a brand new start,
And it’s so very hard,
To make it.
But that perfect light,
In your heart’s so bright,
You deserve someone,
Who can take it.

He’s searched from day to day,
Hoping for someone who would stay.
(Someone who would stay, yeah.)
Girl, you are the sunset,
And he is the one,
You know and you walk away.

Your smile beams,
Your heart dreams,
Like none he ever knew.
And he’ll always adore,
The way you shine,
Even if he never catches you!

He’s searched from day to day,
Hoping for someone who would stay.
(Someone who would stay, yeah.)
Girl, you are the sunset,
And he is the one,
You know...please don't walk away.

She’s out there somewhere...
Please baby, don’t walk away.
Track Name: Aware
School bell sent you home.
You left all alone.
Sometimes disappearing’s,
All that can save you.
You pause and rewind.
They were so unkind.
And knowing you’ll be fine,
Don’t make it much better.

When the world ain’t on your side,
You just can’t hide...but you can,
Always, can always show them,
That you care.
Don’t you want to let them know,
They hurt you so...
Yeah, it’s just a little funny how,
We all ignore what we share.

Baby, did you know they could,
See that look in your eyes?
And they hated themselves,
For going there.
So you don’t have to go,
And try to keep your hurt in disguise,
Because the whole world seems to know,
That it’s easier to hurt,
When someone’s aware.

Date Night...should’ve been.
Here we go again.
You tried standing strong,
Now you’re crying, “Timber!”
I wish you could’ve known,
You didn’t fall alone.
And I hope somewhere deep,
Inside you remember...

How I tried to read your mind,
But it was dark between those lines.
So we walked away from Eden,
All because we couldn’t share.
But I want to let you know,
I loved you so,
And I’m just so sorry,
If it seemed like I didn’t care.

Little did you know I could,
See that look in your eyes.
And I hated myself,
For putting it there.
So you didn’t have to go,
And try to keep your hurt in disguise,
Because the whole world seems to know,
That it’s easier to hurt,
When someone’s aware...

What you’re feeling,
Please tell me what you’re feeling, girl.
We could’ve changed it all,
Could’ve shown the world...
That life is just too short,
To run and hide,
From the tears that keep on,
Building up inside,
Of our heart...that tear us apart.

Go!

When the world ain’t on your side,
You just can’t hide...
But you can always, you can always,
Show them that you care.
(You care...you care!)
You can always let them know,
They hurt you so.
Will we ever open up our little hearts,
And learn how to share?

Baby, did you know they could,
See that look in your eyes?
And they hated themselves,
For going there.
So you don’t have to go,
And try to keep your hurt in disguise,
Because the whole world seems to know,
That it’s easier to hurt...
I guess the whole world needs to know...
That it’s easier to hurt,
When someone’s aware.

Yeah!
When someone's aware...
Someone is aware.
Track Name: Nightshade
I’m following the starlight to you.
It’s late to you but not for me.
The moonlight seems to touch my heart,
Illuminating every part,
With thoughts of you becoming more,
Than what I see inside my mind.
And I can’t even tell you,
How I’ve missed you.
So softly I turn the latch and,
Enter our home.
Silently ascending every stair,
I’m reaching out to you...
Only to realize that you are not alone.

My nightmare has become,
More than a dream.
Your laughter suffocates,
All self-control inside of me.
If only I could somehow,
Change what I have seen,
But I’ve been haunted by,
Those unswayed eyes,
And I just can’t help thinking of our...

Dying love, Nightshade,
Lipstick on a razor blade,
And slowly taking everything from you.
But only in my thoughts you bleed,
For in reality,
I’m dead where I stand,
And you’re the one cutting me.

The memories fall from my eyes,
God it hurts when an angel dies.
And yes it was a well-kept,
Temporary secret...but did you,
Really think that you could,
Keep me from discovering your...

Cold eyes, unswayed,
Lipstick on a razor blade.
Now I find myself,
Trying so hard,
Not to share this,
Pain with you.
But only in my thoughts you bleed,
For in reality,
The edge continues to dull,
As you cut at me!

Oh, pain like this should not exist.
It should have never come to this.
And I can’t tell you how it feels to have tried,
No, I can’t tell you how it feels to have died...
And not be dead.

Now I finally understand,
How strong we can be.
That even those with metal hearts,
Can scar eternally.
But death cannot be,
Where life sets us free,
And I refuse to be the victim of a memory...
Of your...

Cold heart, unswayed,
Lipstick on a razor blade,
That took my happiness away.
A sacrifice would ever last,
But never could erase the past.
This night has finally arrived,
And all that I can say is...

Farewell, Nightshade.
Sweet dreams little razor blade.
Forever I’m ending you.
A crime has been committed,
And true love has ended,
So goodbye forgotten princess...
My only victim was the memory.
(My only victim was the memory.)
The only victim was a memory...
That’s all you’ve become to me.
Track Name: Ariel
You swim, I walk.
You Pop, I Rock ‘N’ Roll,
In a way,
We’re worlds away. Yeah.
But you’d die, to fly.
I know...I try.
This isn’t a game,
We’re so much the same.

And you don’t need,
Another Prince Charming,
To walk through your door,
Your heart’s on the shore.
But you might end up finding,
That new life is blinding,
Please promise before you let go...

Ariel, don’t let stars burn out your eyes.
Don’t let those pretty spotlights replace your sunrise.
You are chasing what you think is paradise,
But just how much will you sacrifice?
Girl, I know you wish you were so much more,
But you’re everything I’ve been looking for.
You’re a magic kingdom, your heart’s the door.
I wish I was part of your world.

If dreams came true,
I would hold you,
Before we were gone forever,
We’d be together.
We all want what we don’t have,
You know it’s true...
Guess that’s why I’m so stuck on you.

Ariel, don’t let stars burn out your eyes.
Don’t let those pretty spotlights replace your sunrise.
You’ve been chasing what you think is paradise,
Girl, just how much will you sacrifice?
Yeah, I know you wish you were so much more,
But you’re just the one I’ve been searching for.
You’re a magic kingdom, of this I’m sure...
I wish I was part of your world.

You’re something special.
You’re something more.
Maybe you’ve heard this 10,000 times before.
I look at you and feel I could soar,
I’m hooked and I don’t want the cure.

I just want to make you smile.
I just want to make you sing.
Cause I know this journey’s lonely,
And I want to keep you company.
I’ve looked and your heart’s,
Where I long to be...
Cause you’re more,
Than my best fantasy.

Oh Ariel, don’t let stars burn out your eyes.
Please don’t let those pretty spotlights replace your sunrise.
You are chasing what you think is paradise,
Yeah girl, I know cause I’ve heard this advice.
And I know you wish you were so much more,
But that magic kingdom you’re dying for,
Is already yours and forevermore,
I’ll wish I was part of your world!
(Wish I was part of your world.)
I wish I was part of your world!
Track Name: Leave
When the day turns to dust,
In your hand,
Where a dusty, old, Lone Ranger sky,
Lights a kingdomless land,
You’ve been trying for so long now,
To deliver your best,
But she don’t see the heart,
Of a man in your chest.
No.

Oh, you scream inside,
As she cries...
But you saw the way she looked at him,
Through the hurt in your eyes.
And now you’re finding as you say goodbye,
To the best thing you know,
That the hardest part of holding on,
Is letting go.

When everyone is gambling,
With another person’s heat,
Then the game becomes impossible,
To walk away from with your heartbeat.
You’re dying...die trying,
On your sunset steed.
Sometimes, the only way to stay is leave.

Now the smile on your face,
Ain’t quite like before.
Cause the reason it was always there,
Ain’t around anymore.
And it’s funny how your mind’s eye,
Looks a little like rain,
Cause you know you were right...
But you can’t stop the pain.

And so, your teardrops fall,
In the night,
From a broken heart that once was,
So unburdened and bright.
And you’re learning as the days go by,
That a life led alone,
Is a lot like being homeward bound,
When no one’s home.

When everyone is gambling,
With another person’s heat,
Then the game becomes impossible,
To walk away from with your heartbeat.
You’re dying...die trying,
On your sunset steed.
Sometimes, the only way to stay is...

Leave it all behind and walk away.
Just as long as you hold onto,
The joy from that day,
When you were up so high,
You shamed the sky,
Cause a pretty little angel,
Showed you how to fly.
And she’ll never take that away.

Jack loves Jill. Jill loves Bradley.
Brad wants Britt. Britt’s with Hadley.
Hadley’s still stuck on Ashley...
Love is a gamble.

When everyone is gambling,
With another person’s heat,
Then the game becomes impossible,
To walk away from with your heartbeat.
You’re dying...die trying,
On a sunset steed.
Sometimes, the only way to stay...

Is everybody gambling,
With another person’s heat?
Has the game become impossible,
To walk away from with your heartbeat?
You’re dying...always die trying,
On your sunset steed!

Sometimes, the only way to stay,
Is knowing you were strong enough to walk away,
(You were cool enough to play.)
Sometimes, the only way to stay is...
Track Name: The Art In Heart
"It's gonna sound horrible for me to say money is meaningless,
but...everyone's like, 'What are you gonna do now,
now that you have all this money and freedom?'
I did everything I wanted to...when I had nothing." - David Choe

There’s a man down the road,
On a corner with no place to go,
If you ask him why, he don’t know.
And the girl up the street,
With nothing to eat,
Lives a life you will never...

Know how they got there,
But you know their pain.
How it hurts when your world,
Don’t see you the same.
They all seem so content,
To let life pass them by,
And you can’t help but,
Reach for the sky!

You found the art in your heart!
That fire inside,
That keeps you from falling apart,
When you’re through.
You know it’s true.
But did you find the art,
Or did the art in your heart find you?

There is something brand new,
Going on deep inside you, my friend.
They try but they don’t understand,
That hop in your step,
And smile on your face again,
They would if they could but they...

Can’t figure out what’s,
Brightened your day.
Or why what they want,
Don’t lead you astray.
But something has changed,
Now you’re on your way,
And if they ask you I think,
I know what you’ll say! (Yeah.)

You found the art in your heart!
The love of your life,
That brings you right back to the start.
When you’re through.
You know it’s true.
But did you find the art,
Or did the art in your heart find you?

No matter what, they’ll never kill your dream.
Cause passion comes from the Highest Power.
I think you know exactly what I mean,
There’s a real good reason we call it Creation. (Yeah!)

You’re one of us.
You will always be a part of us.
There’s a time and place for all of us,
And I’m just so glad that you found yours.
So tear it up (Yeah!) And remember,
Never say die...no surrender!
Life is precious...go defend her.
Triumph on with no remorse!

You found the art in your heart!
The love of your life,
That brings you right back to the start.
When you’re through.
You know it’s true.
But did you find the art,
Or did the art in your heart find...
(You!)

You found the art in your heart!
That fire inside,
That keeps you alive in the dark,
When you’re through.
You know it’s true.
But did you find the art,
Or did the art in your heart...

Did the art in your heart just find you?
Yeah!

I think you know exactly what I mean...
That real good reason,
We call it Creation...yeah.

He brought you to life.
He thought you to life.
He wrote you to life.
He drew you to life.
He painted your life.
Created your life.
He loved you to life.
