Survival
I'll never be an angel
I'll never be a saint it's true
I'm too busy surviving
Whether it's heaven or hell
I'm gonna be living to tell

No risk no glory

A little Up and down and
All around
It's all about survival

I'll never be an angel
I'll never be a saint it's true
I'm too busy surviving
Whether it's heaven or hell
I'm gonna be living to tell

So here's my question
Does your criticism
Have you caught up in
What you cannot see
Well if you give me
Respect
Then you'll know what to
Expect

I'll never be an angel
I'll never be a saint it's true
I'm too busy surviving
Whether it's heaven or hell
I'm gonna be living to tell,/p>

Here's my story
No risk no glory

 

 

Secret
Things haven't been the same
Since you came into my life
You found a way to touch my
Soul
And I'm never, ever, ever
Gonna let it go

Happiness lies in your own
Hand
It took me much too long to
Understand
How it could be
Until you shared your
Secret with me....

Something's comin' over
Mmm mmm Something's
Comin' over,
Mmm mmm Something's
Comin' over me
My baby's got a secret

You gave me back the paradise
That I thought I lost for good
You helped me find the reason
Why
It took me by surprise that you
Understood
You knew all along
What I never wanted to say
Until I learned to love myself
I was never ever lovin' anybody
Else

Happiness lies in your own
Hand
It took me much too long to
Understand
How it could be
Until you shared your
Secret with me....

 

 

I'd Rather Be Your Lover
I could be your sister
I could be your mother
We could be friends
I'd even be your brother
But I'd rather be your lover
That's right
I'd rather be your lover

I don't know where I stand
With you
I never ever make any plans
With you
I don't know what I mean to
You
The only thing I know is I
Dream of you
And all that I know is
I just don't understand
Why my mmmm happiness
Always lies
In the palm of your hand

I could be your sister
I could be your mother
We could be friends
I'd even be your brother
But I'd rather be your lover
That's right
I'd rather be your lover

Sometimes I know what
You're thinking next
But wouldn't it be better if I
Loved you less?
Sometimes I think that I made
You up
But wouldn't it be better if I
Gave you up?
And all that I know is
I just don't understand
Why my mmmm happiness
Always lies
In the palm of your hand

And all that I know is
I just don't understand
Why my mmmm happiness
Always lies
In the palm of your hand

 

 

Don't Stop
Get up on the dance floor
Everything is groovin'
Get up on the dance floor
Got to see you movin'
Let the music shake you
Let the rhythm take you
Feel it in your body
Sing la de da de

Don't stop doin' what
You're doin' baby
Don't stop keep
Movin' keep groovin'
Don't stop doin' what
You're doin' baby
Don't stop keep
Movin' keep groovin'

Come on join the party
Let the bassline pump you
Bring your body over
Baby let me bump you
I know I can groove you
You know I can move you
Feel it in your body
Sing la de da de

Get up on the dance floor
Everything is groovin'
Get up on the dance floor
Got to see you movin'
Let the music shake you
Let the rhythm take you
Feel it in your body
Sing la de da de

 

 

Inside Of Me
I can't stop thinking of you
The things we used to do
The secrets we once shared
I'll always find them there
In my memories

But this heartache isn't going
Anywhere
In the public eye I act like I
Don't care
When there's no one
Watching me
I'm crying

I will always have you
Inside of me
Even though you're gone
Love still carries on
Love
Inside of me

I keep a picture of you
Next to my bed at night
And when I wake up scared
I know I'll find you there
Watching over me

When my world seems to
Crumble all around
And foolish people try to bring
Me down
I just think of your smiling face
I'm flying

Human Nature
I'm not sorry (I'm not sorry)
It's human nature (it's human nature)
I'm not sorry (I'm not sorry)
I'm not your bitch don't hang your
Shit on me (It's human nature)You wouldn't let me say the words
I longed to say
You didn't want to see life through
My eyes
You tried to shove me back inside
Your
Narrow room
And silence me with bitterness
And lies

Did I say something wrong?
Oops, I didn't know
I couldn't talk about sex
(I musta been crazy)
Did I stay too long?
Oops, I didn't know I couldn't
Speak my mind
(What was I thinking)

I'm not sorry (I'm not sorry)
It's human nature (it's human nature)
I'm not sorry (I'm not sorry)
I'm not your bitch don't hang your
Shit on me (It's human nature)

You punished me for telling you
My fantasies
I'm breakin' all the rules I didn't
Make

You took my words and made a
Trap for silly fools
You held me down and tried to
Make me break

 

 

Forbidden Love
I don't / don't care if it's not
Right
To have your arms around
Me
I want to feel what it's like
Take all of you inside of me

In your eyes / forbidden love
In your smile / forbidden love
In your kiss / forbidden love
If I had one wish love would
Feel like this

I know / that you're no good
For me
That's why I feel I must
Confess
What's wrong is why it feels
So right
I want to feel your sweet
CaressIf I only had one wish
Love would always feel like
This
Wishin' on the stars above
Forbidden love
If I only had one dream
This would be more than it
Seems
Forbidden love

Heaven forgive me
Never forbid me-love
Should always feel like this

 

 

Love Tried To Welcome Me
These are my hands
But what can they give me?
These are my eyes
But they cannot see
These are my arms
But they don't know tenderness
And I must confess
That I am usually drawn to
Sadness
And loneliness has never been a
Stranger
To me

Love tried to welcome me
But my soul drew back
Guilty of lust and sin
Love tried to take me in

These are my lips
But they whisper sorrow
This is my voice
But it's telling lies
I know how to laugh
But I don't know happiness
And I must confess
Instead of spring
It's always winter
And my heart has always been
A lonely hunter

Love tried to break me....

Instead of spring
It's always winter
And my heart has always been
A lonely hunter

Love tried to break me....

 

 

Sanctuary
Who needs the sun
When the rain's so full of
Life
Who needs the sky
When the ground's open
Wide
It's here in your arms
I want to be buried
You are my sanctuary

Who needs a smile
When a tear's so full of love
Who needs a home
With the stars up above
It's here in your heart
I want to be carried
You are my sanctuary

Who needs the light
With the darkness in your
Eyes
Who needs to sleep
With the stars in the sky
It's here in your soul
I want to be married
You are my sanctuary

Is all of this pain so necessary
You are my sanctuary

Who needs the sun
Who needs the sky
Who needs to sleep
You are my sanctuary
You are

 

 

Bedtime Story
Today is the last day
That I'm using words
They've gone out
Lost their meaning
Don't function anymore

Traveling
Leaving logic and reason
Traveling
To the arms of unconsciousness

Let's get unconscious honey
Let's get unconscious
Let's get unconscious honey
Let's get unconscious

Words are useless
Especically sentences
They don't stand for anything
How could they explain how I
FeelTraveling, traveling, I'm traveling
Traveling, traveling, learning logic and reason
Traveling, traveling, I'm gonna relax
Traveling, traveling, in the
Arms of unconsciousness

And inside
We're all still wet
Longing and yearning
How can I explain how I feel?

Traveling, traveling in the
Arms of unconsciousness

All that you've ever learned
Try to forget
I'll never explain again

 

 

Take A Bow
Take a bow
The night is over
This masquerade is getting older
Light are low
The curtains are down
There's no one here
(There's no one here in the crowd)
Say your lines
But do you feel them
Do you mean what you say
When there's no one around
Watching you, watching me
One lonely star
(One lonely star you don't know who you are)

I've always been in love with you
I guess you've always known it's true
You took my love for granted why oh
Why
The show is over say good-bye
Say good-bye, say good-bye

Make them laugh
It comes so easy
When you get to the part
Where you're breaking my heart
Hide behind your smile
All the world loves a clown
(Just make 'em smile the whole world loves a clown)
Wish you well
I cannot stay
You deserve an award
For the role that you played
No more masquerade
You're one lonely star
(One lonely star and you don't know who you are)

All the world is a stage
And everyone has their part
How was I to know
Which way the story'd go
How was I to know you'd break
You'd break, you'd break, you'd
Break
You'd break my heart
