Track Name: Bring You Back
Test the water
Let me swim
Find the centre
Find the rim
Keep your head above the surface
Submerge your limbs
Watch the setting sun on the horizon
Watch the light grow dim

Tides will bring me back to you
Push and pull and bring me through
I’m shy from the thought of you
I’ll take shelter from my emotions
Until the sea brings you back to me

Boil the ocean
Cut off your fins
Quiet the notion
Get under my skin
Come hell or high water
I will win
Watch the rising sun on the horizon
Watch the light come in

Tides will bring me back to you
Push and pull and bring me through
I’m shy from the thought of you
I’ll take shelter from my emotions
Until the sea brings you back to me
Track Name: Only You
Have I been kept awake?
Is this as far can I take it?
Have I been left to waste?
Is this as far can I make it?

Cause every little step I take
And every little move I make

Cause Only You
Can make me feel the way
Like you do
Cause Only You
Can take me away
Like you do

I’ve been pulled away
I’ve been steered from all I’ve longed for
I’ve decayed, replayed, conveyed
I’ve been led astray for sure

Cause every little step I take
And every little move I make

Cause Only You
Can make me feel the way
Like you do
Cause Only You
Can take me away
Like you do
Track Name: Satisfy Me
Everything’s a blur
Under neon lights and flashing signs
I’ve been out all night
I don’t want to be alone anymore

What can I say?
I'm a woman of impeccable taste

Come satisfy me
Please satisfy me
Your eyes are aflame
Your soul is mine to claim

Come satisfy me
Please satisfy me
You have only yourself to blame
If you’re willing to play my game

Everything’s a breeze
Under laser beams and lucid dreams
I’ve been out all night
I don’t want to be alone anymore

What can I say?
I’m a woman of impeccable taste

Come satisfy me
Please satisfy me
Your eyes are aflame
Your soul is mine to claim

Come satisfy me
Please satisfy me
No need for names
If you’re willing to play my game
You’ll have only yourself to blame
Track Name: Constellations
(I don't know why I do this to myself
This stupid thing where I torture myself because I think that I'm responsible for everyone I care about, for everyone
I feel like I'm the cause of their suffering,
So I have suffer, I have to bare it with them to make it better and it doesn't make it better, it's worse for everyone
And all of these stupid idea swirl around in my head like there's a whole universe in there.
So I suppose he was right, in a very poetic and cliche kind of way, my thoughts are like constellations in my head, ones with too many stars, stars that have been fathomed into constellations that shouldn't exist.
But that's me. Barely existing)

Don’t tell me if it hurts
I know how to feel
When you live on outskirts
Can you tell if you’re even real?
Don’t tell me if it’s wrong
I know how to deal
With being all alone
Can you tell if you’ve even healed?

When you’re surrounded by temptations
Out of sync with the vibrations
You feel sick from the mere sensations
No way to let out your frustrations
And your emotions are fluctuations
Out of sync with the variations
You’re sick to death from your foundations
When your thoughts are like constellations

Don’t tell me I’m bleeding
I’ve done it before
When you live on the outskirt
Can you tell if you want more?
Don’t tell me to calm down
I used to adore
The feeling of dying
Can I still speak for me?
(Can I still for you?)

When you’re surrounded by temptations
Out of sync with the vibrations
You feel sick from the mere sensations
No way to let out your frustrations
And your emotions are fluctuations
Out of sync with the variations
You’re sick to death from your foundations
When your thoughts are like constellations

(I guess I deserve it in a way, I shouldn't be so hard on myself
I shouldn't be so critical of myself,
It's not my fault if others suffer, it's not my job to fix all the broken things in the world, you can't save everyone, my galaxies are not their galaxies and I don't have to rescue them and I'm not as important as I think I am and that's fine... That is fine... Right?)

When you’re surrounded by temptations
Out of sync with the vibrations
You feel sick from the mere sensations
No way to let out your frustrations
And your emotions are fluctuations
Out of sync with the variations
You’re sick to death from your foundations
When your thoughts are like constellations
