Track Name: Don't Come Any Closer
You left me on the sidewalk
to find a beat that suits the heart
I tried to quit, walk away
but you're in my head

I've never wanted the road so bad
you tear my songs apart
smoke and mirrors
leave me hanging by a thread

Easy now baby my knees are weak
and there's a presence we can feel
in between the sheets
steady now honey when you kiss my cheek
we need to get back on our winning streak

Don't come any closer
fly by night romancer
don't come any closer
I'll never love a dancer

Try to hold yourself together
when we spill into the streets
the city's bright, but not tonight
we can hardly see

You'll find your name on a billboard sign
if you just come for a ride
take my hand, come on up
and you'll understand

Easy now baby my knees are weak
and there's a presence we can feel
in between the sheets
steady now honey when you kiss my cheek
we need to get back on our winning streak


Don't come any closer
fly by night romancer
don't come any closer
I'll never love a dancer
why you gotta say that my roses have a thorn
when just the other day your thorns they grew a rose
Track Name: Nighttime Glow
Let me move through the streets at night
fill my head with dreams until I feel alright
cause I'm looking for a nighttime glow
and she was trying to ignite my soul

I've never seen what the night can bring
but I lost my voice when I started to sing
and I began to feel this pull
in the life of the nighttime show

Take my pulse and search my home
spin me around till I lose control
Im ready to move if you're ready for me
you're a cruel young heart with a common disease

give me a life, give me a second chance
let me go and just let me dance
do you have to be so cruel
when nothing else will do

when I bring out the wine my friends come around
I usually stop when my heart starts to pound
but I'm looking for a nighttime glow
and she was trying to ignite my soul

take my pulse and search my home
spin me around till I lose control
I'm ready to move if you're ready for me
you're a cruel young heart with a common disease

vanity comes alive on the night of the show
she pours it out and begins to glow
she comes alive you know you know
Track Name: The Hardest Way
She is a candle, burning the handle
when being in love is like reaching through a fire
and you crossed the line
I set a bear trap, under my doormat
in case you walk on by just to see what you could find
twisted by design

The hardest way to bring you down
is to let you come around
the hardest way to make it through the night
I can hear the sound of your footsteps coming
as they echo through the ground
and its the hardest way to bring you down

I'll tell you a secret, promise to keep it
the the futures coming and you don't look too bright
you know I'm right
it must be a dark night on the other side
cause I can see the sun and moon above me
it sure is lovely

The hardest way to bring you down
is to let you come around
the hardest way to make it through the night
I can hear the sound of your footsteps coming
as they echo through the ground
and its the hardest way to bring you down
Track Name: Make It Through The Night
I'm a face without a name
seeking shelter from the rain
while telling stories of where I've been so far
and my shadow only knows
its a long and lonesome road
into the downtown, where my soul was left behind

I've got stories you wont believe
I've a diamond up my sleeve
I've been to battle with the devil overseas
my home was burned to the ground
and my family's not around
to tell my story of how I got these scars

Gather what you need and leave the rest behind
cause were not taking orders anymore

If we're gonna make it through the night
you better keep your head down, your head down
if you wanna see the end of the war
you better keep your friends around, your friends around

I've never been to France
and I've never had the chance to feel your heartbeat
we lost a good man today
My voice is wearing down
as we scream over the sound of sudden chaos
and the panic on the ground

pack up all your things and say your last goodbyes
cause we're not taking orders anymore

If we're gonna make it through the night
you better keep your head down, your head down
if you wanna see the end of the war
you better keep your friends around, your friends around

I had to join in the firefight
I lead you down to the riverside
for one last goodbye, one last goodbye

We're gonna make it through the night!
