Track Name: Butterfly [Live Acoustic]
A butterfly fell down and broke a wing
and all the air rushed out
But it's not a break, it's more a twist and then a slide
and all the air rushed out...

If you want me to I'll burn
If you want me to I'll bleed for you
I give myself to you
Because I love you

So I cupped my hands and cradled you inside
All the air rushed out...
To wait for the day we'll spread our wings and fly
Track Name: Emperor's New Clothes [Live Acoustic]
Like a moth to a flame or some sick twisted game
You just couldn't leave him alone
He's the trophy you've won can't you see what's to come?
You're kicking me out of my throne

It's the Emperor's new clothes
There are highs and some lows
But there's one thing you're too blind to see
When you kick off your robes you'll find you're alone
It's too late to turn back for home

The emperor looks into the mirror and smiles,
"These robes are the best I have seen"
But she's so blind she just sees what she's aching to see
Appearance has tricked her once more

You walk through the town
Watch your subjects all watch the ground
Does she know that she's been fooled again
When the deal of the century becomes the hand offs you lent me
Then you'll know you never should have strayed from me
Track Name: Sounds Like Sunday [Live Acoustic]
Watch your mouth, all your sins will be blessed if you trust and follow your heart
Hold your tongue, because the truth has a way of finding it's way out.

Over and over, I tried to let you know
But you keep on coming back for more

Watch your step, careful you don't fall
Sometimes the ground rolls around and starts dragging you down to the floor
Take a look around see what's left in store
When you get kicked down get up and fight some more

Over and over, I tried to let you know
But you keep on coming back for more there's nothing that my heart wants more
Over and over I tried to let you go.
Track Name: Now That All The Love's Gone [Live Acoustic]
I'm pulling out my hair and I'm drowning in my clothes, because when nothing seems to fit and I've nowhere I could call my own
So where do I go from here? I've been back there's nothing left there
Where do I go from here? I've been back there's nothing left there

It's so hard to reach you now that all the love's gone
It's just so hard to please you now that all the love's gone
It's just so hard to need you now that all the love's gone
But it's so hard to leave you even though the love's gone

Well I thought I try and go back I thought she might feel like home
But there's nothing there except the old regrets well I guess we're not mechanical
Because there's a felling needed in your heart

Because there's a felling needed in your heart
But there's no love for me inside your heart
Track Name: Just Like The Stars [Live Acoustic]
Just like the stars, you'll never change
Always shining down, my arms reaching out to you
And just like that picture, stuck in that frame
You're inside of me and I'm inside you wherever you are

You are my air you are the trees
You are everything to me and I know you'll never leave

When I need you back I just close my eyes
and all the memories will fire and I feel you inside
And though you're not there and I've no person to touch
I just look up, look up and I know you're there
You're somewhere...

You are every amazing view that I've seen
You're a part of this world
The world I'd like to see
By my moving around I might capture you again

You are the voice in my head the keeps my conscience clean
You're the fire in my heart, the music that I sing
You are everything to me the man I dream to be
You are everything to me the man I dream to be
Track Name: My Biology [Live Acoustic]
I've been told that my heart is just a muscle
How come mine gets broken and never torn?
I've been told that my hands are just for feeling.
How come I can feel you in my heart

I think that I've been wired wrong
I've all these parts that just won't do their job
I must keep trying keep on learning
Till I find the way to fix my heart

I'm waiting for you to start
To come and be the scaffold that is holding up my heart

Now I've learned that my skin is for protection
Mine keeps getting burned by all your love
Someone said that you brain can give direction
My feet always lead me to your door

Now I've learned that I'm to multiply
My only aim is passing genes before I die
But I don't care if I'm the last in line
If I could waste my genes with you
It would make all my dreams come true

Before I fly away
