1. "Don't Run My Life"
(E. Gagliardi / A. Greenwood / J. Blanco / J. DiGaudio / B. Milne)

You, want to shoot me down again
Why, did I steal your crowd?
I never knew, you could be so vain

Don't you know, I'm on my feet again
See, it didn't take too long
Time has a funny way of healing

Don't run my life
Don't, tell me what to play
Don't run my life
Don't, tell me what to say

It was hell, living on the outside
But it did me good
So it's over now, here is your big surprise

Don't run my life
Don't, tell me what to play
Don't run my life
Don't, tell me what to say

Don't tell me what to say, yeah

At "Soldiers And Sailors", we all knew
Busted fingers, meant for you
(A broken hand) aaaaah-aaah
(I've got a broken heart) aaaaah-aaah
(It wasn't the pressure) aaaaah-aaah
(That tore me apart) aaaaah-aaah
It was you, only you

No, you'll never shoot me down again
Looks like the table's turned
Time has funny way of healing

I'm not sure, of what's in store for me
Hope, I'll dream, I guess
So for now I wish you well, but not the best

Don't run my life
Don't, tell me what to play, yeah
Don't run my life
Don't, tell me what to say

Don't run my life
Don't, (tell me what to play) tell me what to play
(Don't run my life) dont't run my life
Don't, tell me what to say, don't ya tell me what to say

(Don't run my life) dont't run my life (don't run, don't run)
Don't, tell me what play (don't ya tell me what to play)
Don't run my life, oh yeah
Don't, tell me what to say, no no, no no, no no

2. "She Can't Wait"
(E. Gagliardi / A. Greenwood / J. Blanco / J. DiGaudio / B. Milne)

So you met him on a Saturday
Right away he knew what to say
You call him almost every day
Your Romeo stole your heart away

Drive on over in a, hurricane
Scratch "I love you" on his windowpane
He wonders why you're so insane
Boy meets girl, Abel meets Caine

She's got a heartache, you know she can't wait
She puts the phone down, she knows

She can't wait, she can't wait
She can't wait, no, she knows

Now you're waiting for a chance to see
If all your love is worth the misery
How 'bout a change of scenery?
Is there someone else you'd rather be?

She can't wait, she can't wait
She can't wait, no, she knows, wait

She can't wait, she can't wait
She can't wait, she can't wait, you know, you know

You're not living in the land of Oz
No yellow brick roads in crowded bars
Always looking for a better day, a getaway
Just settle for a chance to survive

She can't wait

Forget the heartache, she makes another date
She puts the phone down, she knows

She can't wait, she can't wait
(She can't wait), ooooh-ooh ooh-ooooh, she just can't wait
She can't wait, no, she knows, wait
(She can't wait) she can't wait
She can't wait, wait
(She just can't wait) she can't (wait)
Wait, (no) no, she knows

3. "Ice Age"
(E. Gagliardi / A. Greenwood / J. Blanco / J. DiGaudio / B. Milne)

We were talking 'bout
Talking all about the LA landslide

Living on the falt line
You don't pay any tax if the earth shakes
Our planet's left its axis

Nothing's gonna save, save the settlers on the west coast
Reagan, Sagan, headed for the east coast
Wake 'em up, wake 'em up, shake 'em up, shake 'em up, surfs up
And I can feel it tremble

Waiting for the Ice Age
I can feel the Ice Age coming

If you've got a plan
Don't you plan on a cabana airlift
Meet you in Habana
Check your longitudes
And your latitudes for safety a warm place
The Ice Age ain't a maybe

Your place, my place, doesn't make a difference
Getaway, from Anchorage for instance
Ice flows, no one knows, this is the final line
Pessimistic, optimistic, it is all a state of mind

Waiting for the Ice Age
Northern Lights and Arctic sites tonight, Ice Age

Paradise, it's under ice tonight
Waiting for the Ice Age
Northern Lights and Arctic sites tonight

Can't you hear what they're telling you?
"You're lost without a prayer"
By the way, they're misleading you
Without a clue, the temperature drops
And from out of the blue
Are you ready for the ice to fall?

Paradise, it's under ice (tonight)
Waiting for the Ice Age
Northern Lights and Arctic sites tonight, Ice Age

(Oooooh, oooooh) paradise, it's under ice
(Oooooh, oooooh) waiting for the Ice Age
(Oooooh, oooooh) Northern Lights are your last sights tonight, Ice Age

(Oooooh, oooooh)
(Oooooh, oooooh) waiting for the Ice Age
(Oooooh, oooooh)

4. "Danger"
(E. Gagliardi / A. Greenwood / J. Blanco / J. DiGaudio / B. Milne)

I was talking to a friend of mine
He makes sense, from time to time
He told me about the secrets of survival

All's fair, in love and war
You win some, but you lose a lot more
You can't hold love in a heart that's dying

Started thinking about a girl I knew
And all the pain that I put her through
Where is she now when I need someone to save me?

Reminiscing is the only way out
But I've got no one left to dream about
They come and they go, no use in trying

You, say you know my kind
But don't waste your time
You're falling into danger

You, say it's all for free
But if you trust in me
You're falling out of love and into danger

I'll take you, can you take me?
Don't you question my sincerity
'Cause I'm not sure of what's to follow

I'll wake you up in the middle of the night
I'd like to say it'll be alright
But I don't know if I'll be here tomorrow

Say you know my name
Well it's just the same
Falling into danger

Say you know my kind
Really know my kind
Falling into danger

Aaaaaaaah, aaaaaaaah
Aaaaaaaah, aaaah aaaah
Aaaaaaaah, aaaaaaaah
Aaaaaaaah, aaaah aaaah

You, say you know my kind
But don't waste your time
You're falling into danger

You, say it's all for free
But you trust in me
You're falling into (danger)

You, say you know my kind
But don't waste your time
You're falling into (danger), you're falling into (danger)

You, say it's all for free
But you trust in me

You, say you know my kind
But don't waste your time
You're falling into danger

You, say it's all for free
But you trust in me

5. "Over Her"
(E. Gagliardi / A. Greenwood / J. Blanco / J. DiGaudio / B. Milne)

She's got the touch of a lonely hunter
He's got the scars of a shattered heart
Somewhere tonight, she'll get me alright
And she's gonna roll with him over

I've seen it before, it's the same situation
Dancing till dawn, on a jagged edge
She smiles when he says, he's burning inside
But who's burning who?

Nothing was said, they were a silent movie
Acting out love on a silver screen
A lover was killed but no blood was spilled
How could she roll him over?

Back into the night, goes the lonely hunter
All that she's left, is a raging heart
The story's the same, the faces may change
A loser keeps losing, again and again

Losing her, isn't as bad as
Waiting her, the only way out is
Over her, that's when you're finally free

(Over her) get, get over (her)
(Over her) just get, get over (her)
(Over her) get, get over her

He calls to her from in a dream
She turns and fades away
She's haunting him

He see her through an open door
He wants to hold her near
She reaches for him, just inches away
But he wakes before they touch

(Over her) someway you've got to get
(Over her) it's the only wait out
(Over her) over her, you're finally free

(Over her) get, get over
(Over her) just get, get over (her)
(Over her) get, get over her

(Over her) lonely hunter
(Over her) why be her lover?
(Over her) get, get over her

(Over her) get, get over
(Over her) just get, get over
(Over her) get, get over her

(Over her) lonely hunter
(Over her)

6. "Desirée"
(E. Gagliardi / A. Greenwood / J. Blanco / J. DiGaudio / B. Milne)

Whether it's right, or wrong, I've got to stay
Here in your arms, tonight, my Desirée

Somehow, someway, I'll get through to you
But the look in your eyes, makes me cold
Why the change of heart? Don't let me go

I walk out the door, then I stop, you call my name
You're suddenly there, your touch, hasn't changed

Right here, right now, you prove to me
How I was so wrong? Were all my doubts
Just fantasy? It comes back to me

That inside me, our love is forever
So Desirée, say to me
We can make it, we can make it

Oh Desirée, oh-oh Desirée
(Oh) oh Desirée, my Desirée, c'mon

Somehow, someway I'll get through to you
But the look in your eyes, makes me cold
Why the change of heart? Don't let me go

Because together means love is forever
And when Desirée says to me
We can make it, yes, we can make it

Oh Desirée, oh my Desirée
Oh Desirée, my Desirée

Oh Desirée, oh my Desirée
Oh Desirée, oh my Desirée

Oh (Desirée), oh my Desirée
Oh my (Desirée), oh my (Desirée he-hey)

Oh Desirée, (oh-oh-oh oh oh oh) oh my Desirée
Oh Desirée

7. "Don't Say Goodbye"
(E. Gagliardi / A. Greenwood / J. Blanco / J. DiGaudio / B. Milne)

I hear they say they know us well
They say we're wrong, how can they tell?

We've got our own lives, they've got theirs
How can they know the love we share?

Love we shared
(Oh) oh-oh
(Oh) oh-oh

So now they're giving you advice
What did they say, what was your price?

I say they're filling you with lies
It's us or them, no compromise

Can't believe what you're saying
You want to throw it all away
We can work things out
If only we would talk about it

Don't say goodbye, stay a little longer
Don't say goodbye, try a little harder
Don't say goodbye, just say hello

We've got our own lives, they've got theirs
How can they know the love we share? Yeah

Can't believe what you're saying
You want to throw it all away
Do you believe what she's saying
(Will you throw it all away?)

I don't believe what you're saying
And I just won't throw it away

Don't say goodbye, stay a little longer
Don't say goodbye, try a little harder
Don't say goodbye, don't say goodbye
Don't say goodbye

Don't say goodbye, stay a little longer
Don't say goodbye, try a little harder
Don't say goodbye, don't say goodbye
Don't say (goodbye)

Don't say (goodbye), stay a little (longer)
Don't say (goodbye), try a little (harder)
Don't say (goodbye), baby please
Don't say goodbye

8. "Into The Night"
(E. Gagliardi / A. Greenwood / J. Blanco / J. DiGaudio / B. Milne)

Don't you call me on the telephone
I'm out looking for those alone
Tainted daughters know where to hide
You'd better listen this could be your last ride

Is that water on the cobblestone?
Or just my warning to girls who roam?
I don't apologize for leaving that
My clues are simple to get them on the right track

Sometimes, sometimes
I do as I'm told
And then there's times
I lose all control

Waiting calmly till the time is right
Out of range of the safe street light
I can't reach you from the shadow here
If I move closer tonight another disappears

Sometimes, sometimes
I do as I'm told
And then there's times
I need to go

Into the night, into the night, another lost soul
Into the night, into the night, another left cold
Into the night, tonight the night, is out of control

I'm so familiar, could be your friend?
I used to wander down the ol' East End
I took my chances on another crime
Investigation leaves you far behind

Sometimes, sometimes
I do as I'm told
And endless times
I lose all control

...one day you'll find him
...lock him up and try him
...a job well done, it's over
...but the evil that's inside him
...will go on without him
'Cause I am the night

Into the night, into the night, another lost soul
Into the night, into the night, another left cold
Into the night, tonight the night, is out of control, ah-aah-aaah, ah

Into the night, into the night, another lost soul
Into the night, into the night, another left cold
Into the night, into the (night), I'm out of control

9. "Hold On (When You Feel You're Falling)"
(E. Gagliardi / A. Greenwood / J. Blanco / J. DiGaudio / B. Milne)

Day after day, when my heart cries out, for anyone
Days turns to night, and I feel inside, you're the only one, yeah

There was a time, when the memories I held, were my only friends
Alone and afraid, having no plans made, will it ever end?

Searching, so blindly
I can't even see the night
Till you called me into your light

You said (oooh-oooh) hold on, (oooh-oooh) when you feel you're falling
(Oooh-oooh) hold on, (oooh-oooh) when you just don't know
(Oooh-oooh) I'll be around, (aaah-aaah) when your tears start falling
(Aaah-aaah) and you want to let go

Never before, has a love so strong, touched my life
You came to me, when my heart cried out, in a lonely night, aaaaaah

And sometimes, we lose our way
I call out to you, you're there
Showing me how much you care

(Oooh-oooh) hold on, (oooh-oooh) when you feel you're falling
(Oooh-oooh) hold on, (oooh-oooh) when you just don't know
(Oooh-oooh) I'll be around, (aaah-aaah) when your tears start falling
(Aaah-aaah) and you want to let go

Hold on, when you feel you're falling
Hold on, when you've got to let go
(Hold on) I'll be around, when your tears start falling
Just let them fall

Hold on, aaah-aaah, hold on, aaah-aaah
Hold on, aaah-aaah, hold on, (aah-aah-aah-aaah)
Hold on, aaah-aaah, hold on, aaah-aaah
Hold on, aaah-aaah, hold on, (aah-aah-aah-aah-aaah)
Hold on, aaah-aaah, hold on, aaah-aaah
Hold on, aaah-aaah, hold on, (aah-aah-aaah)

10. "No Harm Done"
(E. Gagliardi / A. Greenwood / J. Blanco / J. DiGaudio / B. Milne)

You can flatter me with your lewd proposals
And you can promise me things you won't keep
And you can dress up like the ladies on the TV
Aiming for the major leagues, but you're no Cheryl Tiegs

Ooh-ooh ooh, you can bitch about (all my petty vices)
Ooh ooh ooh-ooh ooh, and you can laugh at all my second sights
Ooh-ooh ooh, don't be so sure about (your pleasant position)
Ooh ooh ooh-ooh ooh, don't push your luck, I just might, punch out your lights

No harm done
No harm done, now baby
No harm, no harm
No harm done

Ooh-ooh ooh, you can con them (into thinking you're an heiress)
Ooh ooh ooh-ooh ooh, and then you'll toast them from a dixie cup
Ooh-ooh ooh, you don't amaze (me even in the spotlight)
Ooh ooh ooh-ooh ooh, you missed your cue girl, go fix your make-up

No harm done
No harm done, now baby, (hey)

You've got to, wake up and realize, it's over kid
(Oooh oooh) you know I gave you the best I could
But blades are sharp and yours cut me oh so (deep) deep

Keep your friends and your afternoon (appointments)
Ooh-ooh ooh, bargain with your body, call it laissez-faire
Ooh-ooh ooh, so when you come home (there'll be no disappointments)
Ooh-ooh ooh, 'cause when the road's clear, I'm out of here

No harm done
No harm done, now baby
No harm, no harm
No harm done

No harm (done)

No harm done
No harm done, now baby
No harm, no harm
No harm

No harm done
No harm done, now baby
No harm, no harm
No harm done

No harm (done, no, no)

No harm done
No harm done, now baby
(No harm) no harm, (no harm) no harm
No harm (done)

No harm done (no, no, harm done)
(No harm done) no harm done baby
No harm, no harm
(No harm done) no harm done

No harm (done)

(No harm done), no harm, no
(No harm done), (no, no), now baby
(No harm) no harm, (no harm) no harm
No harm done, no baby
