Track Name: Wicked
Come along, come along for the ride
I got a one-way ticket and we’re leaving tonight
This train ain’t coming back for anyone

Don’t just me for being wicked
I know what I want and I’m going to get it
Being good never got me very far

Taking a chance tonight
Been so good all your life
You got a good heart
A good soul to match
Give me what you’ve got
Don’t look back don’t miss your shot
You got a good heart
A good soul to match
Now we’re wicked

Take a shot take a swing at me
I’m not scared to die you only win the lottery
If you’re holding all the tickets so I’m gonna take ‘em all

So 1, 2, 3, 4 tell me that you want more
Tell me that you’re tired of waiting for an open door
Tell me you’ve been good and it’s time to get what you want

Taking a chance tonight
Been so good all your life
You got a good heart
A good soul to match
Give me what you’ve got
Don’t look back don’t miss your shot
You got a good heart
A good soul to match
Now we’re wicked

Can’t stop, don’t wanna miss it
What’s wrong with being wicked?

One shot, tonight
Been so good all your life
You got a good heart
A good soul to match
Give me what you’ve got
Don’t look back are you ready or not
You got a good heart
A good soul to match

Give me what you’ve got
Don’t look back are you ready or not
You got a good heart
A good soul to match

Are you wicked?
Track Name: Looking
Let me tell you how I fell through when you fell for me
I can show you how I know you thought I couldn't see
How you felt about that night
When you told me you'll just hold me for my misery

I see you next to me, whoa

I've been looking for you, been looking for you, been looking for you
I've been looking for you, been looking for you
I've been looking for you, been looking for you, been looking for you
I've been looking for you, been looking for you, been looking for you
Been looking for

Let me tell you how you came through when I fell apart
Should've seen you'd try to save me from the very start
It's not your fault so please forgive
The things I said to you when I gave in to my demons

I see you next to me, whoa
I see you next to me, whoa

I've been looking for you, been looking for you, been looking for you
I've been looking for you, been looking for you
I've been looking for you, been looking for you, been looking for you
I've been looking for you, been hoping for you, been counting on you
Been looking for
Track Name: Stars
It's too cold out tonight for this conversation
And secretly I'm scared this may be the last one
I know that it comes as no surprise
But I don't wanna see tears in your eyes

Can you see the stars?
They won't speak
Can you see the stars?
When you're here with me

It's too cold out tonight for this conversation
Sometimes I think that I should not be forgiven
If it's just the way that things are done
Will you hold my hand so I won't run?

Can you see the stars?
They won't speak
Can you see the stars?
When you're here with me

Everything's fine, I'll find my way back, I'll do what's right
Everything's fine, I'll find my way back, we'll be all right
Track Name: Grande Disco
He said you can leave, I won't ask you to stay
If it makes you feel better to be far away
I don't care where you go or where you lay your head
I don't care if you sleep facing east or west
I don't care where you go or who you'll see
But I hope that sometimes you'll still think of me
I hope that you're happy, I hope you're not sad
Just say that you'll look for me when you come back

He looked at the sky and he watched the plane leave
Said my fingers are crossed that you'll come back to me
And maybe someday, like in a year or two
You'll feel so much better, but you'll still be you
And I hope we're together if it's meant to be
And if it is not, then I will make my peace
I know everything will turn out just fine
'Cause the universe always provides in time

The universe always provides in time
If it's meant to be then it will all be fine
The universe always provides in time
If it's meant to be then it will all turn out just fine

Swear to God I'll find you someday
Swear to God I'll find you someday
Swear to God I'll find you someday
Swear to God I'll find you someday
Track Name: Ballade
I dream in black and white
Silhouettes of who I used to be
The mirror tells me lies
Ghosts and skeletons stare back at me

You used to wake at night
Listening to see if I still breathe
Through slamming doors and screams
You watched me slip away from everything

Tell me you want me
I’ll say I’m sorry
Say you’ll never let me go
I’ve waited so long
I’ll tell the truth
If you can make me whole

I grasp at bones and shrinking spaces
As they disappear from sight
You ask if I’m okay
The words get lost inside another fight

Tell me you want me
I’ll say I’m sorry
Say you’ll never let me go
I’ve waited so long
I’ll tell the truth
If you can make me whole

Tell me you want me
I know you thought
You lost me long ago
I’ve waited so long
I’ll come clean
If you can make me whole

Tell me you want me
I’ll say I’m sorry
Say you’ll never let me go
I’ve waited so long
I’ll tell the truth
If you can make me whole

Tell me you want me
I know you thought
You lost me long ago
I’ve waited so long
I’ll come come clean
If you can make me whole

Tell me you love me
I’ll say I’m sorry
Say you’ll never let me go
Say you’ll forgive me
Cause I don’t know
If I can ever be whole

Tell me you want me
I know you thought
You lost me long ago
I’ve waited so long
I will tell the truth
Just take me home
Track Name: This Must Be The Place
Been wondering 'round for so long lost inside the dark
I stumbled through the door and you picked up my heart

You took my hand and looked straight into me
That was the moment I started to believe

Every time I see you smile
it lifts my heart a thousand miles
I'm flying so high that I can't see the ground
I'm finally thinking this must be the place

Everything you say is like a new awakening
You've shown me all the things I thought I'd never see

Don't close your eyes, we cannot miss a thing
I feel so alive now that you're here with me

Every time I see you smile
it lifts my heart a thousand miles
I'm flying so high that I can't see the ground
I'm finally thinking this must be the

And all my life hasn't been what it seems
Been holding it in since I was just sixteen
They said to be patient, things are bound to get better
So I've just been waiting 'round for what feels like forever
Yo soy un viajero, je suis américaine,
I've come this far, I won't go back again
And ever since I've gotten here and first saw your face
I'm thinking more than ever now that this must be the

Every time I see you smile
it lifts my heart a thousand miles
I'm flying so high that I can't see the ground
I'm finally thinking this must be the place

Look up at the stars, they are shining for us
Don't let go of my hand now, this must be the place
Track Name: PB&Jam
When I was young, they told me to wait
Said "child, you're so wild, learn to hesitate"
So for awhile I felt guilt for my sins
It's taken all my life just to forgive ‘em again

When I was young, living outside the city
Said "girl, all you must do in this world is stay pretty"
Now that I'm older I know that's a lie
It's taken all my life, it's taken all my life
To take it all back

All I want is someone to love me
Heaven above or hell below me
Said all I want is someone to love me
Heaven above or hell below me

I was a fool, was a fool for your love
So when you took it away, I thought fair enough
Now that I've moved on I know who I am
It's taken all my life just to remember again

I was impatient and prone to shame
I took my entire life and tried to throw it away
Now I am trying to forgive my own sins
And I've got all my life left to feel happy again

All I want is someone to love me
Heaven above or hell below me
Said all I want is someone to love me
Heaven above or hell below me
Track Name: Long Gone
It started out when we were so naive
I wanted you, I gave you everything
I showed you my demons, you took my hand and chased them out
The joke's on me, I should have held on to my doubt

I waited for so long
I guess I have myself to blame
We changed, now I'm haunted
By who we used to be
Don't look for me, I will be long gone
Don't look for me, I will be long gone

The night you left I cried myself to sleep
And made up dreams where you came back for me
I guess the saddest part is I still can't let you go
But I know that you vanished long ago

I waited for so long
I guess I have myself to blame
We changed, now I'm haunted
By who we used to be
Don't look for me, I will be long gone
Don't look for me, I will be long gone

Don't look for me
Don't you dare look for me
Don't you dare look for me
Don't you dare

I waited for so long
I guess it never meant a thing
You changed me, I'm haunted
By who you used to be
Don't look for me, I will be long gone
Don't look for me, don't you dare look for me

I guess you should know
I've forgiven everything
I'll never forget you
I'll miss you less each day
Don't look for me, I will be long gone
Don't look for me, I will be long gone

Don't look for me, I will be long gone
Don't look for me, I will be long gone
