Track Name: Follow My Lead
[Chorus]
Hold out your hand / Drop all your plans /
Life is calling / Won't you follow /
FOLLOW MY LEAD /
This will be quick / Flick of the wrist /
Life is calling / Won't you follow /
FOLLOW MY LEAD /

I've been in your situation / I know what you're going through /
When everybody's problem is your problem /
There's no one left to tell your troubles to /
Excuse my fascination but why do you still do this to yourself /
I know you hate it so don't fake it / Put your jacket on and live /

[Chorus]

Oh-oh-oh-oh / Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh / Oh oh oh-oh /
Won't you follow / FOLLOW MY LEAD /
Oh-oh-oh-oh / Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh / Oh oh oh-oh /
Won't you follow / FOLLOW MY LEAD /

Close your eyes and maybe you'll be less blind /
To all that was held inside and never could shine through /
A-whoah-oh-a-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh /
Now's the time to see what more you can find /
And leave all the shit behind and just live your life for you /
A-whoah-oh-a-oh-oh-oh-a-oh-oh /

[Chorus]
Track Name: Face The Crowd
Look at you watching me from afar /
Bet you never thought this is who I would be / But I am /
Everything that you hope and you dream of / But I was not in your mind /
You know that I am now /

[Chorus]
Turn and FACE THE CROWD /
Can't even hear your voice / Whatcha screamin' about /
Turn that bass up loud / I wanna hear it / I wanna hear it now /

You can stare / I don't care / Flip your hair / But you're only wasting time /
Huh / Come over / Don't be shy /
I won't bite / Not tonight / It's alright / Just let my touch ignite you /
Now baby move in tight /

[Chorus]

Come with me / I'll give you everything you want /

[Chorus]
Track Name: It's The Feeling
This club is about to get shut down /
Turn it up and burn it to the ground /
Let's dance / Baby come in close / One chance / See how far this goes /

[Chorus]
I gotta feel it and really let go /
Hands to the ceiling and lose all control /
High with a free mind /
IT'S THE FEELING /
Feeling feeling coming over me /

If love is what you're looking for / Drink up and lose it on the floor /
Let's dance like we don't give a f*** / One chance / Baby test your luck /

[Chorus]

No you don't stand a chance / We'll lose it if we can / But I don't want romance /

[Chorus]
Track Name: You Had Me
You're getting high but still solo / With no direction where to go /
But if you just follow me / No space in between /
You know I wanna go there / Know I wanna go there or stay right here /
If you want then I could beg for mercy / If you want then I could beg /

[Chorus]
I've been waiting all my life for you /
Anything you want that's what I'll do /
Oh! Well YOU HAD ME at dream on /

You tried to fight it all alone / Lost sight of perfection / Chose to fold /
But if you just follow me you see what I see /
And know I wanna go there / Know I wanna go there or stay right here /
If you want then I could beg for mercy / If you want then I could beg /

[Chorus]

Anywhere you go I'll follow suit /
Even if I know you don't want me to /
Oh! Well YOU HAD ME at dream on /

Oh-oh-oh / A-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh / A-oh-oh-oh-oh-a-oh-oh-a-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh /

[Chorus]
Track Name: High Wire
All alone with no one to call /
Get her down / Get her down off of that ledge /
I don't think she wants to fall no more / No more / No more /

Screaming, "Help me / Help me before I explode" /
She's screaming, "Help me / Help me before I explode" /

[Chorus]
Another night she spent right here drinking /
Another lonely thought that she's still thinking /
I don't know why she does this all to herself /
Says, "I'm alright on my own" / She's not alright on her own /

It's the same night after night /
She can't take anymore / Going insane /
Only wishes she could rest her head on his shoulder /

She's screaming, "Help me / Help me before I explode" /
Still screaming, "Help me / Help me before I explode" /

[Chorus]

"Help me / Help me-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e" /
"Help me / Help me-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e" /

[Chorus]

Another night she spent in her head sinking /
Another lonely song that she's still singing /
I don't know why she's stuck on that HIGH WIRE /
Says, "I'm alright on my own / She's not alright on her own /
Track Name: Tempted
Slow down a moment for me / Take a chair / Didn't mean to catch you unaware /
Don't hold your breath / Let me clear the air /
I was a little forward way back when / Sorry I upset you / Let's be friends /
It is what it is / Now play pretend /

[Chorus]
Haven't seen you lately / I've been going crazy /
Tempt me with the way that you talk /
But I know your kind lady / All you do is play me /
Time is running out on the clock /

So how about we take this to your place / Get a little nasty face to face /
I wanna know how your body tastes /
I get a little forward now and then / Hope I don't offend you once again /
But I already know how tonight's gonna end /

[Chorus]

Might not be what you wanted / I know / But baby I could take you further /
Than the last one / I'm the next one you'll find you love /

[Chorus]
