Track Name: Lover's Leap
(2:30)

Lovers shift through the streets

Flowers bloom as they meet

The city square is alive with passion

Love is flowing downstream


Each day leaves far too soon

Can’t I spend them with you?

I couldn’t help but to chase this feeling

Building inside of me


(3:16)

You were a stranger but I could feel you

Coming straight through my heart I could love you

I couldn’t understand what was coming

I didn’t see this at all


Dancing on the fields a new promise of love comes

Shining down on me I begin to feel the pressure

What’s the point of this world if I can’t

Love as much as I can


(3:43)

Take the lover’s leap

We’ll run away together

Take the final step with me


All these fine solutions

Making their own problems

That’s what love should be

(repeat)


(5:04)

Look at those lovers who

Play this beautiful game

Look at those lovers who

Will never feel quite the same


“I fell in love with a girl who I met yesterday”

“I took her home but I can’t quite remember her name”

“I was a star but that life wasn’t meant for me,

I took a chance and I landed next to you”


(7:37)

I’m in love again!

(repeat)


(10:08)

Goodbye, go your own way

I don’t care anyway

A bitter kiss to the memories that I

Carry back to my grave


I guess it’s all about needs

Hearts that cannot be reached

The blue moon rises and I stop shaking

5 years gone I can’t breathe


We have our doubts

We have our fears

We have our tests

Together we face them


We can’t be torn

We can’t be scarred

We can’t be touched

We can’t be broken


Beauty comes with a price

Beauty can’t take away from us


Come take the leap

Come find our way

Come hand in hand

Happiness waits now



Lay down your cross

Lay down your doubt

Promise is here

To take you home again


Fall back into my arms

My love I’m here to mend you now


(12:19)

Take the lover’s leap

We’ll run away together

Take the final step with me


All these fine solutions

Making their own problems

That’s what love should be


(12:42)

Slowly I start to fade

I feel love pulsing through my veins

Feel your heart falling in on me

I can’t speak but if there’s


One thing I do believe, it’s that

Love it will set you free if you don’t

Turn away from it you will
Start to hear the sound
Track Name: The Romantic
I’ve tried hard for so long

To get you out of my head

I can’t stop thinking ‘bout

All the things we’d do instead


I’d like to know you

I’d like to get inside your head too


I called you a dozen times

Waiting for the phone to ring

This obsession is killing me

Now you’re even in my dreams


I’d like to feel you

I’d like to hold you and love you too


This love I’m singing

My heart I’m bringing

This world is so unfair

To romantics like me


I’m gonna find you

I won’t stop searching

My love I’ll prove

And then you will belong to me


I saw you leaving work today

My god where’d you get those eyes?

I didn’t know what I could say

Don’t know why I’d even try



I won’t forget you

I hope you call me back some day soon


This love I’m singing

My heart I’m bringing

This world is so unfair

To romantics like me


I’m gonna find you

I won’t stop searching

My love I’ll prove

And then you will belong to me


Lord how I’ve tried

To get you out of my head

I can’t stop what I’m feeling

I’ll never love another again

You’ve won my heart

In such a wonderful way

I am so deep in love

There’s just so many things I have to say

Trying to make

Sense of this beautiful game

I will never move on

I know this love I have will not go away

This town is yours

This song belongs all to you

I’m a hopeless romantic

And my love lies bleeding all the way through


This love I’m singing

My heart I’m bringing

This world is so unfair

To romantics like me


I’m gonna find you

I won’t stop searching

My love I’ll prove

And then you will belong to me
Track Name: The Stranger
Sleeping through another day

Dream of love I haven’t made

There’s no reason for me to stay

Life is easier this way


It’s so hard to be adored

You’re someone I can’t ignore

For tonight you’re all I need

In the dark I feel you breathe


I never want to fall in love

I never want to fall in love

(repeat)


Can we forget as the moon sits still

Loving others isn’t real

The candlelight fades the night begins

As the angels bless our skin


Here we are in one from two

All my love I give to you

Passion fills our lungs tonight

I disappear in the morning light


I never want to fall in love

I never want to fall in love

(repeat)
Track Name: The Big Time I
i.

I heard the note timeless

I’ve come to beat the rest

To find the key at last

The meaning of success


To live the dream I crave

The farm won’t be my grave

I looked beyond the glass

Bid farewell to my past


I jump the fence with hope

I barely grasp the rope

Ambition leads the way

My shadow greets the day


Goodbye to all my friends

I’ll meet you at the end

The world is in my hands

The meaning of success


I step into this vicious world

I fight until I climb to the top of stardom

The mountains are my pen


“I think this kid could really go far

He’s got the stuff to become a star

We could exploit him for all he’s got

Use all his talent before he rots


Hey, here’s an offer you can’t refuse

Just sign your name and you’ll never lose

You’ve got the stuff to become a star

I think that you could really go far”


I take the chance to live my dreams

My ambitions are tearing right at the seams

I know no other way


I hold the world in the palm of my hand

I’m living in my own wonderland

I feel the passion inside of me

I can’t control all this ecstasy


I know exactly who I will be

I take control of this life extreme

All that I could ever want is here

I raise my glass to another year
Track Name: The Big Time II
You’re gonna go far

You will reach for the stars

Take a drink from the bar

Would you like a cigar?

Don’t be afraid to give it all away


Whatever you feel

Whatever you want

Wherever you’re going

Give all you got

You’re going to shoot to the stars


I’m loving this glamour

I love the fame

I’m starting to become

A household name

They give me whatever I want


I saw her standing

Across the alley

Her hair was dark her eyes were spilling over me

And then she saw me

I couldn’t believe

Maybe this life was not the one that’s meant for me
Track Name: The Big Time III
She came up dancing to my room

She told me “Not to worry, love, this is what life is for you”

I said that I was someone else

I couldn’t stand to think that my world had such a pointless truth


Trying to make sense of this game I played

Why have a passion if you don’t have a say?

All this time I let them control what I do

Now I feel as if my life has no use


“No, you can’t leave us we own your soul

Now get your ass back in gear you fool

Don’t think too much man you’re feeling fine

We own your thoughts and you’ve had your time”


She took me in and healed my soul

And now I finally understand my role in this crazy dream

This life of fame is not for me

And now I trust all of those who said that love will set you free


Trying to make sense of this game I played

Why have a passion if you don’t have a say?

All this time I let them control what I do

Now I feel as if my life has no use


“You’re too far deep in you can’t save yourself

You depend on us and nobody else

Don’t take another step get back in line

We own your thoughts now and you’ve had your time”
Track Name: The Big Time IV
Well you tried to make a star out of me but it didn’t work out that well

I remember the games you played and the sales you tried to sell

The world is turning green and the sun’s not coming up today

I reached for the stars and now I’ve come back to earth to stay


I’ve fallen in love and I’ve learned that this life is not meant for me

Love is the color of me and the drug that I want to be

You might as well say goodbye cause you know that I’m leaving today

Going back home to the farm where my new found love awaits


Hand in hand

Join the band of love

Traveling across worlds beyond our own
Track Name: The Big Time V
Oh, the train is coming ‘round the tracks

Could this really last?

Could it be that this love will finally

Stay with me until the day is done

And another one

Has begun and I’ll never leave again


I never dreamed of you in my life

Never leave my side again

I know you’ll always be mine

I’m just waiting for the sign


I gave up my life of blood and fame

Such a stupid game

For a love that will never go away

We’ll spend our days together soon

We will reach the moon

And fly high

We will soar across the sky


Here you are again in my life

I will never let you leave my side

I know you’ll always be mine

I have finally heard the sound

I’m in love again!
