Track Name: Bright Star
I stood alone on the banks of the Meekong
I stripped all my clothes off and dove straight in
Held my breath for so many minutes til I became dizzy
And I couldn't distinguish the surface from sinking
There were lights in my eyes
And death in my throat
My lungs ached to breathe
But I knew if I did I would choke
I wanted you to take hold of my mind
One last glimpse of you as I die

You're the brightest

I've dreamt dreams so vivid that when I awake
I can still smell the rain and the straw where I lay
And still you're the brightest
I've worshipped gods and goddesses
And prostrated myself in temples and churches
And I too have been worshipped
But still you're the brightest

I've seen the sky split, lit by the darkest of storms
I've watched a child being born as his mother dies
Still you're the brightest star of them all

Don't let them fool you
Don't let them lie
You are the only one who'll ever shine this bright

I've seen the fires at the edge of the world
Watched a million sunrises
Still you're the brightest

I've seen the sky split, lit by the darkest of storms
I've watched a child being born as his mother dies
Still you're the brightest star of them all
Track Name: Lone Wolf
He stalked on away
In the snow-covered ground
Leaving nothing but footprints
And the ache of a tingling howl

Well I stood there in the open air
Smoke still lingering in my hair
The world now replaced by the smile on his face
And his hungry stare

You can take all the best of me
Do what you will with the rest of me
Lone wolf - why won't you be alone with me?

Well the fog fell in thick
And covered his tracks
Though I watched him leave
He never once looked back

Now if I'm in the woods on a moonlight night
With my claws and my teeth, ready to fight
Lone Wolf - don't be alone with me

(Instrumental)

Well I stood there in the evergreen
Burning your effigy
Lone wolf - why won't you be alone with me.?

Why won't you be alone with me?
Track Name: Trouble
You say you're looking for trouble
You say you're looking for space
You say my face fills your dreams
But you just don't think I can be
Quite what you need me to be right now

Well I've come a long way to be here,
Just to be turned down twice
Yeah I've come a long way just to be here
I ain't leaving til you start playing nice

You say that you're looking for danger
You say that you're looking for fun
You say that you're playing for pleasure and pleasing
But baby remember I gave you my number for one reason
And I ain't leaving
'cause I can be trouble, yeah I can be trouble

Well I can be trouble baby
And I can be mean
And I can be crueller baby
Than you've ever been
Yeah I can be trouble
Oooh
Oooh

You say you're looking for trouble
You say you're looking for space
You say my face fills your dreams
But you just don't think I can be
Quite what you need me to be right now

Well I've come a long way to be here,
Just to be turned down twice
'cause I can be trouble
Yeah I can be trouble

Yeah I can be trouble
Yeah I can be trouble
Track Name: Heartless
Heartless he smiles and insists that he's fine
as I slowly unravel to ribbons before him
Cruelty so bright and viscously refined
That i'm shocked into speechlessness by its sheer purity

Beauty in lies, distract all my tears
You make heaven and hell blur to the same thing
Truth keep me calm, distract me my fears
Every breath burning I'm trying to believe on you again

Something's been bent that can't be unbroken
Something's been lost that can't be re-spoken
Something's been locked that just can't re-open
I'm turning to ashes before you

I'm finally clear-headed - I'm finally free

Callous he cries and insists on my pity
I concede and recoil and shiver before him
Selfishly bright he expertly shines and I'm left in a rocking boat
Heavy as concrete

Can you distinguish the facts from your fears
Can you at least tell the difference between love and need
Ego keep calm, distract me my tears
Every breath burning I'm trying to release myself again

Something's been bent that can't be unbroken
Something's been lost that can't be re-spoken
Something's been locked that just can't re-open
I'm turning to ashes before you

I'm finally clear-headed - I'm finally free

I'm finally clear headed – I'm finally me
