Track Name: Beautiful
Stop, take it in. I know you wanna drop everything,
And just surrender to me.
I recognize that you have other things on your mind.
Let me break the silence.

Let's take a spin, and we'll go far away from everything,
Find some new surroundings.
You know that I'm always on the run, never satisfied,
But I want to tell you...

You're beautiful to me.
You're beautiful to me.
All I need is a little of your time to comfort this little heart of mine,
And to tell you...

Stay by my side. Can't you tell we're running out of time.
So catch your breath.
You must realize I've never really been the patient kind.
But I want to tell you...

You're beautiful to me.
You're beautiful to me.
All I need is a little of your time to give me a little peace of mind,
And to tell you...

I know you feel the same.
You show me in your own way.
Track Name: Closing the Door
Please take me home.
I'll crawl into bed, and I won't wake up till it is noon.
Then I will rise, and open my eyes;
And it won't be a moment to soon.

Oh let it waste away.
Melt into yesterday.
I know we got bills to pay,
But it doesn't matter what you say.
I'm closing the door on today.

I don't regret each moment I spent getting closer and closer to you.
Now that you're gone, I try to move on;
And I know every breath of it was true.

I thought that you could love me,
But I guess I knew from the start.
We wouldn't last through the weekend.
I only had half of your heart.
Track Name: Paper Doll
Sometimes when you look at me,
It's like you're staring at the wall.
And the farther you step back,
The harder I fall.
It's driving me crazy.
I'm feeling so small.
I wanna be more than just your paper doll.

Oh oh you slay me.
I'm wondering, how can you blame me,
When your love your love is so cold?

Still there is a part of me, that believes your every word.
And I can't let go of the things that I've hear.
You said you loved me, so as long as you're still here;
I'll bear the silence, and I'll suffer the tears.

Looks like we stand at the edge of reality,
Not knowing which way to choose.
I don't even know if I'm scared or just worn down.
Can't bear the thought of losing you, baby.
Track Name: Bossa Nova
Lay me down, and whisper quietly;
Beneath a blanket of stars.
And play for me a bossa nova tune,
And soon I will sleep and dream of you,
Falling in love in your arms.

I take your hand, and eventually;
You lead me out onto the floor.
We begin to sway, despite my two left feet.
And evening floats by while you dance with me,
Falling in love in your arms.

Falling in love in your arms.
Falling in love in your arms.
Track Name: Come Back to Me
I should've known that you'd slip out the door when I was turned.
You never wanted me to get hurt, but that hurt.
And when you told me you thought you couldn't take it any longer,
I didn't realize that you would leave. Why did you leave?

Come back to me.
I didn't get the chance to say goodbye.
Come back to me, and I would make it right this time.

I remember we used to do so many things together.
But when you couldn't do it anymore, it broke you.
And here I am, gathering the piece that have fallen,
And dropped below the surface now they're gone, they're gone.

Come back to me.
I didn't get the chance to say goodbye.
Come back to me, and I would make it right this time.
Track Name: Darling
It's hard to believe you like the real, real me,
Can't you see that it's true,
Don't know what we're getting into.
I want you more. I never felt like this before,
Because darling, it's you I adore.

Everything seems easier now that you're with me.
Even the stars and the moon,
Shine brighter for you and for me.
I want you more. I never felt like this before,
Because darling, it's you I adore.

'Cause you enchant me and excite me.
You inspire my every thought.
When I'm with you, oh my darling;
The world seemed like new.
