Track Name: Dangerous Outside
All is quiet in the city streets tonight.
And the shadows on the pavement dance around me in the light.
A man comes up to me. He says, “Hey, what’s your name?”
I tell him I’m going on my way and he should do the same.

Try to think of what to say, but the words have all abandoned me today.

What is a girl to do when all she knew is gone before her eyes?
Don’t ever try to roam beyond your home.
It’s dangerous outside.
Right when you think you’ve found the way,
You’re bound to go astray.
And if you’re really wise, you’ll realize,
It’s dangerous outside.

Moving on, I cross the alley to my right.
But the footsteps there behind me keep on stirring in the night.
I turn the corner there and what a sight to see.
An empty street and a pair of eyes are staring back at me.

Try to hurry on my way, but the big, bad wolf is calling me to play.
Track Name: Evening
In the corner of the evening
When there’s not a soul around
If you close your eyes and listen
You will hear a funny sound

As it calls across the darkness
Past the break of distant shores
It will cut across the silence
Break the locks upon the doors

And as the music starts to sway
It will take you away

When the music’s all around you
There’s no hope for a retreat
You’ll surrender to the rhythm
Disappear into the beat
Track Name: Go To Bed
Lights flicker as the people upstairs jump around.
Cascade of stucco is raining down on me.
Loud thumping from a couple of pairs of gym shoes.
Stereo bursting with a crazy beat.

I don’t know what I’m gonna do.
I don’t know what I’m gonna say.

Because I don’t want you over my head.
I’d rather live without you instead.
Can’t think straight; I’m going brain dead.
So would you please, please, please, please go to bed?
Go to bed.

Wild parties seem to be in full swing all the time.
Laughter erupting; coming from the sky.
And I’m searching just to find a little bit of solitude.
Sound interrupting me every time I try.
Track Name: Rooftops
Standing on rooftops
Watching the stars in the sky
Clouds telling stories
As they pass on by

Up in the heavens
This world looks so small
Makes you wonder
If it’s even real at all

When everything gets crowded
There’s one place you can go

Why stay on the ground
Where the magic is missing?
Why not head up to the sky where the worries all fly away
Just go up there where no one cares what you say or do
Up on rooftops; the world stops

Sitting on pavement
Watching the cars going by
Noise and confusion
Can’t shake it if you try

Down in the city
All the rules to obey
Stop the words
You’re always fighting just to say
Track Name: Anomala
I’d love to tell you
What you want to hear
Crystal words, so clear
Something warm and dear

Like a candle
On a stormy night –
Shine a bit of light
Let you know it’s all okay

When all is done and said

But there’s nothing
When I dial the phone
And you’re never home
So I guess I’m prone

To go searching
Looking through the street
For the tracks of feet –
That always seem to roam

So far ahead.

Like shadows racing down the boulevard
The Night is falling like a house of cards
The Wind is howling at a lonely moon,
but the sun will come tomorrow just to shake away the gloom… again, oh my friend.

Perhaps the table
is already set
and all your needs are met
But I’d place a bet

That the stories
I have heard are true
As they point to you
And they’re darker and more blue
Than the deepest sea

That turns and tosses like a funny dream
That churns and sloshes like a slot machine
But even like the waves above the bow
The world may try to drown you, but it never does, somehow.

Oh, no - it never does somehow.

Time flies by like a bird up in the sky -
Flits and flutters like a spy up on the wire.
Maybe it's true - all you've got to do
is fight against the wind to make it higher.
Track Name: On Your Way
When the clock strikes twelve
When they’ve gone away
When you’re all alone with nothing left to say
When you walk upstairs
And you comb your hair
And you get ready to go on your way

To go on your way

When you pack your things
And you stare into space
When you’re looking out with that grin on your face
When it's all gone wrong
Don’t you know that I’ll be there

So if you need me
Won’t you call me?
If you need me
Won’t you call me?
Call me.

When you look ahead
And the road is long
When you ask yourself how you carry on, eh
When you’re thinking back on the days before
Where did the time go?

And if you need me
Can you call on me?
Oh, if you need me
Won’t you call me?

When the song is through and you got nothing to say
So you go on, you go on your way
And you close, you close the door
