Track Name: Devastated
What are you waiting for?
You whisper to me slowly
You're everything
Everything I need and more

Guiding me to the floor
Your rhythm is so soothing
You're everything
Everything I've waited for

Your just my type
Girl you really move me
You're giving me the green light
Like it happens in the movies

The chemistry back and forth
Feels like you really know me
The club is packed
But you and I are here alone

The look in your eye is right
So come a little closer
You're everything
Everything I've waited for

We don't have to say goodnight
You know that it's too hard to take
I'm devastated by those eyes
I know that we can do this
Just show me you know

At last, the moment comes
Last call has just been made
Can I give you a call sometime
So we can talk
I know your friends are waiting by the door
But this evening has been building up
For so long
It's hard to walk away right now

We don't have to say goodnight
You know that it's too hard to take
I'm devastated by those eyes
I know that we can do this
Just show me you know
Track Name: A Circumstance (What the Fickle U Can Kill)
A Circumstance

Subtle signs like ashes left
On a table, what a mess.
You should’ve cleared this up.
What am I to do now? What is up?
Lips as red as drunkards wine
Bathing me with those sorry eyes
Who is he to you?
Why look at me like that if he’s for you?
Like a damsel in distress,
Really, damn you, you’re a mess!
You should be with me but missed connections
Rarely come to be.
A circumstance beyond reproach,
Guess I should let it go.

Seen like a nice thing,
Themed like a nice dream.
Seemed I was fated for you.
No point in waiting,
Cause I guess it wasn’t meant to be.

One day while riding on the “L”
A sunny haze of drizzle fell.
By this point in time,
I had finally purged you from my mind.
Now was it meant, or maybe chance?
I saw you then at random glance.
I froze with bated breath,
And when we spoke I nearly lost myself.
As we made it to your stop,
You looked so sad as you got off.
It’s human nature though,
To deny ourselves what we want the most.
A circumstance beyond reproach.
Oh, I’ll just let it go.

Seen like a nice thing,
Themed like a nice dream.
Seemed I was fated for you.
No point in waiting,
Cause I guess it wasn’t meant to be.

And it’s all I want to know…
Are you gonna love me or should I let this go?

Subtle signs like ashes left
On a table, what a mess.
You should’ve cleared this up.
What am I to do now? What the f#(k?
Lips as red as drunkards wine
Bathing me with those starry eyes
Who is he to you?
Why look at me like that if he’s for you?
Like a damsel in distress,
Really, damn you, you’re a mess!
You should be with me but missed connections
Rarely come to be.
A circumstance beyond reproach,
Guess I should let it go.

Track Name: Some Find Tomorrow
She's the city
She's the rapture
At the fall of dusk she calls on me
To start the movement in her heart
In the absense of a season
When the weather's made for whispering
We'll ride to champion the cause of love

How can it be
When she's full of hope
The outside world looks away
I'll be there for her
I'll be there for her
There to burden the weight

She's a disparate attraction
From the others who would lead me astray
Where she is I know that I belong
I stand strong in her seduction
At the break of dawn she calls on me
To set the tone for days to come

Track Name: In The Dark
When lights are low
And summer's heat has set into a room,
I wanna be there with you
Blowing air upon your sweat to keep you cool.

Sultry night,
After sunset is replaced by the moon
I wanna be there with you
Making patterns on your skin with an ice cube.

Love is just a dance
You gotta feel what moves come next
There's a rhythm to time and chance
You and me make all the steps
Are you comfortable with me?
Because comfort is the key

It's about trust through the night,
It's about faith when it's not in sight.
It's about rollin' with ya,
Rollin in the dark.

Lady love
Relax with me, cause that's the key to groove.
I'm wanting more with you,
And it only gets so much better from here.

You gotta feel what moves come next
There's a rhythm to time and chance
We make all the steps
'Cause comfort is the key
Is your body comfortable with me?

It's about trust through the night,
It's about faith when it's not in sight.
It's about rollin' with ya,
Rollin in the dark.
