Track Name: It's What Pays The Bills
VERSE 1:
I am sitting on a chair
And you're over there
Sitting on a picnic rug
You, you make it all so clear
To me sitting here
And it makes me want to shrug

Oh oh oh it's so
Oh oh oh it's so
oh oh oh it's so clever
Oh oh oh we know
Oh oh oh we know
oh oh oh now or never

CHORUS:
It's what pays the bills

VERSE 2:
You, you make it crystal clear
Just what you want to hear
Yeah on the radio
Oh oh oh we're so
Oh oh oh we're so
Oh oh oh we're individual

COUNTER CHORUS:
You got your got request
Track Name: Beautiful (2013 Version)
VERSE 1:
When life is an open book
You read it when you can remember
To take the chance you took
And close your eyes til September
When nobody is home
And you're feeling alone
Look up and I'll be there

CHORUS:
You're beautiful
You're beautiful
You're beautiful tonight

VERSE 2:
When angels turn away
And you're feeling like an empty heart
You know that I'm here to stay
You know I'll always play my part
When nobody's home
And you're feeling alone
Look up and I'll be there

BRIDGE:
Don't turn your back on me
You know you'll always be
Track Name: The Last One Picked (2013 Version)
VERSE 1:
Your first day at school
Taught you kids were cruel
Tied you by your shoes
Stole your toys for news
But you did not cry
No you were polite
And they pushed you to the ground
Not a sound

CHORUS:
You're the last one picked
You get so sick of it
But it's you're destiny
So take a breath and leave
The only way you can

VERSE 2:
At the formal night
You dressed up, just right
You looked great looked fine
They all crossed the line
But you did not cry
You just said goodbye
And they drank themselves to sleep
But not me

BRIDGE:
I do not think that was fair (of them so say)
I do not think that you deserve to be hated (no I don't)
I do not think that your destiny's hopeless
You can change it yourself

VERSE 3:
In your bedroom now
You'll get through somehow
I watch on from space
Long to touch your face
But I will not cry
As you heave a sigh
I will catch you once again
Cause you're my friend

CHORUS 2:
And we're the last ones picked
We get so sick of it
It's not our destiny
It's not for you nor me
To be the last ones picked
And we're so sick of it
We'll take our destiny
And bring it to it's knees
The only way we can
Track Name: AU-TTK-14-00041 - Time To Shine (2013 Version)
VERSE 1:
Packing my things, making my way out past the memories
Playing the game, taking the blame I fly out to the trees
Clearing my head, waking the dead beside their childrens' dreams
Filling the holes, climbing the poles that watch me tear the seams

CHORUS:
Wake up, get up, it's your time to shine
Wake up, get up, or you'll lose your mind
Wake up, get up, it's your time to shine

VERSE 2:
Hearing the breeze, climbing the trees that stand so tall to me
Digging a hole, filling my soul so I can help you breathe
Swallow the night, never alright you smile and drink your tea
Selling your soul, losing control you smile and preach at me
Track Name: The Girl With A Bruised Heart (2013 Version)
VERSE 1:
You take a left but I stick to the right
I'd sit with you, even if it's all night
Missed you for hours, for minutes, for days
Told you I loved you, in a thousand new ways

CHORUS:
And you do feel like a girl with a
Bruise over your heart like I
Do feel like a boy with a
New shiny new toy

VERSE 2:
Cut me to pieces with words like knife
Home to the west, could I ask you to drive?
Free like a bird, with a roof over head
Trade off the ceiling, for a cage near the bed

BRIDGE:
Everything's moving, I can't stand around
You taste the best, but I can't stand my ground
Told you I loved you, but that's not the end
Love is a message, so can't we be friends?

COUNTER BRIDGE:
Answer the question, unless I propose
I thrive on action, and anything goes
We're so, unusual, but you still agree
Your (it) heart explodes with a love kept for me
