I can’t wait, I can’t wait till you come home

I’ve been hungry I’ve been starving for someone I can give my time (always right by my side)
I can make your skin burn I can make this world turn
I got lots to give and I want to give it all to you

Once I followed my heart I knew from the start you were the missing part of my happiness
And this love it must be blessed
So I’ll cherish and adore you, spend my days beside you
Track Name: Nothing Can Come Between This Love Tonight
Colored lights dance on the floor
Body moves in time you just want more and more
Can’t control what feels so right
Human nature gonna win tonight
Gonna stand proud fight the lovers fight

Fear and shame try to make us hide our love away
But tonight the lovers rock we gonna rock
This is a love you cannot stop no

Nothing can come between this love tonight
Nothing can come between this love tonight
When you find love just hold on tight
Don’t let nobody stop what feels so right oh
Nothing can come between this love tonight

Nothing can come between this love

All the times they try to hold us down
We don’t run and hide we march right through the town
Can’t control what feels so right
You can keep your guns coz love wins tonight
The flag is gonna fly we gonna fight the lovers fight

Fear and shame have tried to make us hide our love away
Tonight the lovers rock we gonna rock
This is a love you cannot stop no

We wont let the night just slip away
Time to say what we have to say
Remember the ones who we lost their lives wont be forgot
Honor their memory and stand up its time to rock the lover’s rock
Track Name: Give You Up
Verse 1
It's just desire leave your emotion at the door
What's conversation anymore? just wasted time
So done with the talk I just need time and space to feel
Your touch is helping me to heal - at least justify what I'm doing is right

Chorus
I can't give you up
I'll never say enough is enough (enough is enough)
I know its a lie but it feels like love (feels like love)
It's never too much
I don't wanna stop no
I can't get enough
Feels like a dream I don't wanna wake up (wake up)
I'm in heaven when we touch (whenever we touch)
It's never too much
I know I can't give up you up

Post chorus refrain
Uh uh uh uh uh cant give you up

Verse 2
So long I felt like I had lost part of myself
But when I'm with you I just feel so free it must be good for my health
I was so lonely. I thought that I would not survive
Now I'm alone but with you at night I feel alive so though I try no

Chorus
Refrain

Bridge
Just for tonight I want to love you
Just for tonight I want to feel you
Just for tonight I want to love you
Just for tonight I want to love you
Just for tonight I want to feel you
Just for tonight I want to love you
I want to love you baby ooh yeah

Chorus
Refrain

Outro
I cant give you up no I cant give you
I cant give you up no I cant give you up
I cant give you up no I cant give you up no I cant give you up

I can’t give you up – cant give you up – cant give you up
Track Name: Chasing Gold
You was digging on me
I was digging on you
Maybe too good to be true
The night that I met you
Too much too soon
You thought you had too much to lose
Your eyes too closed to see
My love is worth more than money

I wont sign your waiver its not about that paper
If you want a life with me
My love could be forever to you my cash is better
You want to count your coins well run along and enjoy

We could have had love but you only love your mumma and your money
We could have had love but instead you have your mumma and your money

I’m not chasing gold not chasing gold x 2

You keep your dollars and I’ll keep my sense
I’m not some stupid girl you can suppress
I don’t take kindly to your accusations no I deserve better than that
I hope your spreadsheets start to love you back
When you’re lonely you can caress your cash
I’ll be happy and I’ll be just fine
With someone who loves me for my heart and mind

I wont sign your waiver its not about that paper
If you want a life with me
My love could be forever to you my cash is better
You want to count your coins well run along and enjoy

We could have had love but you only love your mumma and your money
We could have had love but instead you have your mumma and your money

I’m not chasing gold not chasing gold x 2

You think you got it oh you got that midas touch
Your always counting but you don’t add up too much
Gold fingers much too rough
Track Name: Breaking Down
Verse 1
Only yesterday we both cried and I prayed
For times to heal us and times to change
The sounds of yesteryear
Memories gone by flowed in my tears
How can my greatest joy be my greatest fear?
Can we really change? Can we really talk and rearrange?
Promises so sweet turn so strange
The strength I had I gave away

Pre-chorus 1
Always hoping for a brighter day
You show the signs but they always fray
I’m afraid to leave, so scared I stay
I can’t stand up to this fight today

Chorus
Do you hear that sound? (Do you hear that sound)
Do you hear that sound? (Do you hear that sound)
This is me breaking down (This is me, this is me breaking down)
This is me breaking down (This is me breaking down)
Hear me scream and shout (Hear me scream and shout)
My roof and walls are crumbling down (crumbling down)
So low I’ve hit the ground (hit the ground)
Does it make you proud? To see me breaking down…

Verse 2
How did it come to this?
Did I neglect? Was there something that I missed?
Why do you push? Oh why do you insist?
Sometimes we dance and I forget the space between us, the emptiness
Called you friend and I believed it true
Now rage has taken my faith in you

Pre-chorus 2
They say that love is the same as hate
Do I choose this pain or is this just my fate?
All I know is - my love is blind
How can I break this cycle of what’s yours is mine?

Chorus

Bridge
I know I saw the signs but I closed my eyes
I know I could not leave all this love behind
Father said I made my bed
Was this really what he meant?
Track Name: Take Back The Night
I've had enough of feeling scared to walk the streets alone
I'm so fed up with feeling like I should not leave my home
Living in the dark I won't accept that its a danger zone
When I'm walking the streets alone
End of the show it seems so crazy to need a chaperone
I want to be safe on my own

Our safety is not guaranteed
But we're breaking free
Take back the night
We're fighting for our dignity making history
Reclaim the night
Set us free to walk the streets carefree like we ought to bee
This is our right
Stepping out fearlessly gonna make a scene and
Take back the night

We'll overcome
the blame they put on us for having fun
Never ever never gonna give up
Until the streets are safe for each and everyone
When I'm out at night I won't accept I can't wear what I want
When I'm walking the streets alone
the outfit that I chose don't give you the right to touch or taunt
Its my right to walk home fear free

Our safety is not guaranteed
But we're breaking free
Take back the night
We're fighting for our dignity making history
Reclaim the night
Set us free to walk the streets carefree like we ought to bee
This is our right
Stepping out fearlessly gonna make a scene and
Take back the night

I've been feeling I can't be me
The time has come to walk with dignity
Track Name: I Won't Choose You
You think that I run around with my head in the clouds
But I know where I’m going my feet are right here on the ground

You think I’m too damn proud to call admit my mistakes
This time your so wrong because this time my heart is in the right place

I have worked hard and paid my dues
I don’t owe anything to you
The line is drawn and we are through
There’s nothing you can say or do
I’m looking up your moving out
Can’t stand to hear you scream and shout
If I have to choose from me and you
I know exactly what to do

I I wont I wont choose you
I wo-oo-oo choose you
I wont I wont chose you-ou-ou-
I wont. Wont choose

You think that I’m too scared to get my hands dirty but don’t
you know better than that by now I wont back down no I wont

I trust my instinct and its telling me to walk away
From your game that you play
You don’t own me or my money
