  • THE LION THE BEAST THE BEAT

    Steady Now
    Steady Now
    Don’t fear what you can’t see
    Ready Now
    Ready Now
    I’ll hold on to you
    You hold on to me
    I found the heart of a Lion
    In the belly of the Beast
    And I held it in my hand
    And I could feel 
    I could feel
    Feel the Beat

    Gas up the easy rider 
    And head out for Nevada
    Somebody let the Beast out, baby
    It’s time to meet your maker
    Make the road your undertaker
    Somebody let the Beast out baby

    Can’t stop the Beat
    Can’t stop the Beat
    Run but you can’t hide from the heat
    Life is a record playing on repeat
    I’m running wild 
    With the Lion, the Beast, the Beat

    So don’t you try to tame the Lion
    Just ride on the horizon
    Somebody let the Beast out baby
    We all hide our desire
    Then we feel the Beat like fire
    Somebody let the Beast out baby

    Can’t stop the Beat
    Can’t stop the Beat
    Run but you can’t hide from the heat
    When life is a record playing on repeat
    I’m running wild 
    With the Lion, the Beast, the Beat

    The Lion
    The Beast

    Can’t stop the Beat
    Can’t stop the Beat
    Run but you can’t hide from the heat
    When life is a record playing on repeat
    I’m running wild 
    With the Lion, the Beast, the Beat

  • NEVER GO BACK

    You running round in circles
    But you won’t find no better than this
    And after all your searching
    You come back to the place that you missed

    But I’m closing up for the season
    I see you out there – you’re freezin’
    But I’m never letting you back in again

    Oh no
    Oh no
    I’ll never go back there no more
    Oh no
    Oh no
    I’ll never go back there no more

    Looking at my heartbeat
    Like I’ve never seen it before
    Too alive to ever sleep
    And this street is keeping me warm

    I’m pushing up on the ceiling
    I’m beating back all my Demons
    And I’m never letting you back in again

    Oh no
    Oh no
    I’ll never go back there no more
    Oh no
    Oh no
    I’ll never go back there no more

    I can’t take it no more 
    These scratches on my soul
    I can’t and I’ll never let you near my heart again

    Oh no
    Oh no
    I’ll never go back there no more
    Oh no
    Oh no
    I’ll never go back there no more
    Oh no
    Oh no
    I’ll never go back there no more
    Oh no
    Oh no
    I’ll never never never never go back no more

  • PARACHUTE HEART

    There’s trouble in the Friendly Skies tonight
    Love can never last when you’re flying up this high
    You took the leap but I’m not ready to come down
    So long baby, I’ll see you someday when we’re both on the ground

    Yeah you’re gone like the wind and it don’t even matter
    I fly above it all and watch the world shatter
    We had a sky dive love affair, doomed from the very start
    So you can throw my love to the wind
    I’ll just float back to the ground
    With my Parachute Heart

    There’s trouble in my lonely old balloon
    I’d let you jump but maybe you jumped too soon
    It’s too late for me to turn back now
    So goodbye baby, I’m not ready to follow you down

    Yeah you’re gone like the wind and it don’t even matter
    I fly above it all and watch the world shatter
    We had a sky dive love affair, doomed from the very start
    So you can throw my love to the wind
    I’ll just float back to the ground
    With my Parachute Heart

    Parachute Heart
    Parachute Heart
    Parachute Heart
    Heart – - Ahhhh

    Yeah you’re gone like the wind and it don’t even matter
    I fly above it all and watch the world shatter
    We had a sky dive love affair, doomed from the very start
    You can throw my love to the wind
    I’ll just float back to the ground
    With my Parachute Heart
    Parachute Heart

  • STARS

    I lit a fire with the love you left behind
    It burned wild and crept up the mountainside
    I followed your ashes into outer space
    I can’t look out the window
    I can’t look at this place
    I can’t look at the 
    Stars
    They make me wonder where you are
    Stars
    Up on Heaven’s Boulevard
    And if I know you at all
    I know you’ve gone too far
    So I can’t look at the stars

    All those times we looked up at the sky
    Looking out so far we felt like we could fly
    But now I’m all alone in the dark of night
    The moon is shining
    But I can’t see the light
    And I can’t look at the 
    Stars
    They make me wonder where you are
    Stars
    Up on Heaven’s Boulevard
    And if I know you at all
    I know you’ve gone too far
    So I can’t look at the stars

    Stars
    Stars
    They make me wonder where you are
    Stars
    Up on Heaven’s Boulevard
    And if I know you at all
    I know you’ve gone too far
    So I can’t look at the stars

  • TIMEKEEPER

    Timekeeper, I can’t believe how long it’s been
    Timekeeper, I wish I could start over again
    I’m too young to be feeling this way
    Yeah I’m wasted as I lie awake
    There goes another day

    Whoa -
    Timekeeper, please won’t you slow it down tonight
    Timekeeper, the days are rolling by
    Timekeeper, tell me I’m gonna be alright

    Timekeeper, I thought I’d have it right by now
    But Timekeeper, everything’s still spinning out
    I’m undone, breaking out of the cage
    But before the Beast can get away
    There goes another day

    Whoa -
    Timekeeper, please won’t you slow it down tonight
    Timekeeper, the days are rolling by
    Timekeeper, tell me I’m gonna be alright

    So choke the dawn and damn the daylight
    Time is just an invisible line
    Timekeeper, I’m hoping you hear me tonight

    Oh -
    Timekeeper, please won’t you slow it down tonight
    Timekeeper, the days are rolling by
    Timekeeper, tell me I’m gonna be alright

  • ROULETTE

    I got a new bad habit
    And it’s so hard to break
    Why can’t I put it down
    Instead I raise the stakes
    Heaven here my call
    Here’s my soul to take
    Cause I’m in over my head
    And I can’t get away

    I’m playing Roulette but the wheel don’t love me at all
    I’m playing Roulette and my heart is the tumbling ball
    Yeah the wheel turns me over again
    I’m a helpless soul with a hopeless hand
    And my heart’s going deeper in debt
    That’s what I get when I play Roulette

    What happens in this town
    Don’t stay here for too long
    I take my winnings home
    But in the morning he’s always gone
    Should I run away?
    Oh I wish I could change
    There’s a Lion in my heart
    And I know he can’t be tamed

    I’m playing Roulette but the wheel don’t love me at all
    I’m playing Roulette and my heart is the tumbling ball
    Yeah the wheel turns me over again
    I’m a helpless soul with a hopeless hand
    And my heart’s going deeper in debt
    That’s what I get when I play Roulette

    I feel like I’m always running
    I’m just as lost as my money
    Maybe one more spin will save me
    If I’m lost you know where to find me

    I’m playing Roulette but the wheel don’t love me at all
    I’m playing Roulette and my heart is the tumbling ball
    Yeah the wheel turns me over again
    I’m a helpless soul with a hopeless hand
    And my heart’s going deeper in debt
    That’s what I get when I play Roulette
    Roulette
    Roulette
    Roulette
    I’m playing Roulette
    I’m playing Roulette
    I’m playing Rouletteā€¦.

  • KEEPSAKE

    You always hated the way I live
    You never wanted the things I had to give
    But still there’s something that keeps you holding on

    Leaving me is something only you can do
    I’ll never be the one to say ‘We’re through’
    But if you play the game
    I’m gonna play the fool

    You’re holding onto me like a Keepsake
    Holding onto me like a Keepsake
    Why don’t you give my heart a break 
    And just let me go
    Oh – Oh
    Baby let me go

    You keep my love in a little box
    I tried to pick the lock, but
    You keep me hiding out 
    Behind your closet door

    Tell me why you gotta treat me so unkind
    You keep me out of sight and out of your mind
    Come on and open me up 
    I can’t take it no more

    You’re holding onto me like a Keepsake
    Holding onto me like a Keepsake
    Why don’t you give my heart a break 
    And just let me go – yeah
    Oh – Oh
    Baby let me go

    When you try to touch my soul
    Your fingertips are always cold
    Am I just your souvenir?
    You buried me like treasure 
    Then forgot you left me here

    You’re holding onto me like a Keepsake
    Holding onto me like a Keepsake
    Why don’t you give my heart a break 
    And just let me go
    Holding onto me like a Keepsake
    Maybe you love me but it’s too late
    Why don’t you give my heart a break 
    And just let me go
    Oh – Oh
    Baby let me go
    Oh – Oh
    Let me go

  • RUNAWAY

    I hit you like a train, you feel the pain I ain’t coming back
    I cut you, cut you deep cause you can’t keep up on my track
    If I loved you I’d stick around, you’re on the ground cause I knocked you down
    You’re falling every night, no you can’t fight 
    But I can hear you pray, I’ll stay just one more day
    But I always run away
    I’m nothing but a Runaway

    I hooked you with the beat, the heavy heat, gettin out of hand
    And I left you, in a lonely bed the words you said made me understand
    That if I loved you, I would stay, I never stray, little runaway
    And I’d fall down, lonely night, I can’t fight 
    But maybe I should pray, Lord, give me the strength to stay
    Cause I always run away
    I’m nothing but a Runaway

    Why can’t I just stay in one place?
    Somebody gotta put me in a cage
    Oh I don’t wanna be this way
    I’m nothing, nothing but a Runaway
    Nothing but a Runaway
    Ooh I’m nothing but a Runaway
    Runaway
    Runaway
    Runaway

  • ONE HEART MISSING

    My lonely heart was made for two
    It beats too slowly without you
    You want to know what we can be
    But you won’t give your love to me

    Oh – I’m crying your name but you won’t listen
    Oh – If love is made for two – then there’s 
    One heart missing
    One heart missing

    Tonight the sky is burning blue
    Horizon cuts right into you
    You’ll be the moon, I’ll be the sea
    And you can shine your light on me

    Oh – I’m crying your name but you won’t listen
    Oh – Tonight was made for two – but there’s 
    One heart missing
    One heart missing

    Oh – and I will follow you 
    No matter where you run
    I’m holding all the cards
    There’s only one
    One heart missing
    One heart missing
    One heart missing
    One heart missing

  • THE DIVIDE

    Looking out across the coast
    I can’t find the Divide
    Maybe the ocean is a ghost living in the horizon
    And my heart beats fast 
    As I count the miles from the city line
    No I’m not running
    I’m just stealing time

    And if I don’t go 
    Then how will I ever know
    What’s on the other side?
    When I can’t tell the wheel from the road
    Or the sea from the sky
    I gotta find
    I gotta find
    Find the Divide

    I drove a lonely distance ’til the road turned to fire
    The night’s moving in around me
    But I’m not tired
    Yeah my heart beats fast
    Shadows win the fight against the east
    The lines are blurring now
    And I can’t tell the Lion from the Beast

    Whoa – if I don’t go 
    How will I ever know
    What’s on the other side?
    When I can’t tell the wheel from the road
    Or the sea from the sky
    I gotta find
    I gotta find
    Find the Divide

    Whoa – if I don’t go 
    How will I ever know
    What’s on the other side?
    When I can’t tell the wheel from the road
    Or the sea from the sky
    I gotta find
    I gotta find
    Find the Divide
