Track Name: On the Edge
On The Edge
Lyrics & music by E. Burgess

I was only sixteen
From a broken home
I really had no place
To call my own
Times they were tough
Sometimes they still are
I'm always coming through
Without a scar
Back in the alley
Lookin' for a fight
Sneakin' home just before daylight
We really didn't care
What tomorrow would bring
Our future didn't look very promising

(Chorus)
I will live on the edge
Never ever wanting to grow up
Yeah, we live on the edge
To get us by we would borrow steal and beg
We were livin' on the edge
Livin' on the edge

Forever in trouble
It was a dangerous game
Many summer nights
Standing in the rain
Years to grow up
And hopefully leave this place
To go on with their lives and run away
Oh yes, I fought well to get where I am at
But I do remember things
Runnin' with the pack
Sometimes I would think
What would become of me?
I was not smart enough to break it free

(Repeat Chorus)
Track Name: Wasted Time
Wasted Time
Lyrics & music by E. Burgess

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah
You know I don't smile much these days
There's no one to smile for anyway
And in the morning haven't much to say
It's drivin' me crazy each and every day

Aw, help me out now boys

Forever that's what she said
And I believed her my ego was fed
Now I'm left all alone
This loneliness cuts me to the bone
Now all I have is a memory
I'm all alone with my agony
Just wasted time, yeah yeah
Just wasted time

Forever that's what she said
I believed her my ego was fed
Now I'm left all alone
Loneliness cuts me to the bone

Now all I have is a memory
I'm all alone with my agony

Just wasted time
Yeah, yeah
Just wasted time
Well alright
Your wastin'
I'm wastin' all my love
Track Name: Invisible
Invisible
Lyrics & music by E. Burgess

I've been chasing you girl
For way to many years
So many times I wanted
To tell you just how I feel
I'm always hesitating
Don’t ask me why
And now I got nothing to lose
As I look into your eyes
I wanna be
More than just friends
Enough of waiting
Let our love begin
Now I hope that you will
See things my way
All you gotta do is ask me to stay
It's all you got to do

(Chorus)
Sometimes I think I'm invisible
Invisible to your love
Yes, I'm invisible
You know I need help from above

When things get you down
You can always call on me
You know I'll always lend an ear
If need be
But there is something killing
You know it's killing me inside
My feelings for you girl
I can no longer hide
In the deep dead of night
I call out your name
How I want to end this pain
And now the truth comes out
I've been waiting for so long
I've been waiting and waiting
I'll be waiting for your love
For your love

(Repeat Chorus)
Track Name: Close the Door to My Heart
Close the Door on My Heart
Words & Music by J. Koenig

I don't need you
Hangin 'round here no more
Don't want ya comin'
Goin' in out of my door
Cause I got places to go
And I got lots a people to see
I try to think it out
But it's just another mystery
Oh, a mystery

(Chorus)
Decided what I've got to do
I'll close the door to people
Just like you
Close the door on my heart
Not my soul
Close the door on my heart babe
I'll close the door on my heart
Not my soul
Close the door on my heart,
Not my soul

Too many times
You didn't hear me call your name
Ooh but now I'm tired
A double clutch is my game
Believe in me, it's all I ever ask of you
Cause I got no time for wastin'
Walking around and feelin' blue

(Repeat Chorus)

Close the door on my heart babe
I tell ya, it's what I'm gonna do

Time goes by
But I know it seems that I'm a fool
But it takes some time
To chose a girl and find a jewel
I tell you bad dreams
Don't always turn out black & blue
It's happened to me
Someday it's gonna happen to you

(Repeat Chorus)
Track Name: The Offering
The Offering
Lyrics & music by E. Burgess

In your mirror
Can you sometimes catch a glimpse?
Can you see what I see?
Your smile it slowly fades
Away from your face
And again you have nothing more to say
It's not a waste
You shouldn't hate so much
Your words will be heard
My heart they will touch
At second glance
You'll get your second wind
Trust me now
You've got to smile again

Girl you and I, we've been through a lot
And it is a shame that our love couldn't last
And now I offer my hand to you
Before you take a fall
I can't stand to see you live without a heart

It's not a waste
You shouldn't hate so much
You words will be heard
My heart they will touch
At second glance
You'll get your second wind
Trust me now
You've got to smile again
Smile again

It's not a waste
You shouldn't hate so much
Your words they will be heard
My heart they will touch
At second glance
You'll get your second wind
Trust me now
You've got to smile again
Got to smile again
You gotta smile for me baby again
Track Name: Don't Speak
Don't You speak for Me
Lyrics & music by E. Burgess

Yeah, listen to you
Voice of a generation
Calm still sea..
In the times of frustration
You say forget what you know
It's nothing but lies
You’re just another loser
Wasting everyone's time

(Bridge)
How long can you masquerade
Behind your angel face
All your false hope and faith
Your apologies much too late

(Chorus)
Don't you speak for me
I can speak for myself
Don't you speak for me
Why can't you believe?
I don't need anyone else
I don't need you
Telling me what to do
You'll never have a clue
So don't you speak for me
Don't you speak for me

You don't even care
Count your millions and smile
Carry on your crusade
I've known this for a while
And all of your dreams soon fade away
A dustbowl of stupidity
Are you sure you want to play?

(Repeat Bridge & Chorus)

So was it really worth it?
The selling of your soul
But you know it’s not too late
Some of us know the score
We'll soon forget you
And your book of lies
You'll be buried in the past
Another one to despise

(Repeat Bridge & Chorus)
Track Name: Peace on Earth
Peace on Earth
Lyrics & music by E. Burgess

So many nights
I've been wasting away
I know that it's foolish
But I wish I could get back some way
Would I live it different?
Would it be the same?

Well I can't take anymore
Oh No
Won't you help me open the door?
Open the door
I want peace on earth
Happiness and all that it’s worth
Troubles pass by
Leaving me undisturbed

And now has it come to this?
My life has passed me by
Too late to consider
Just another try
Gimme some sort of hope
Some sort of pride

No I can't take anymore
Oh no
Won't you help me open the door?
Open the door
I want peace on earth
Happiness and all that it’s worth
Troubles pass by
Leaving me undisturbed
I want peace on earth
Happiness and all that it’s worth
Troubles pass by
Leaving me undisturbed
Leaving me undisturbed
Oh Yeah

No I can't take anymore
Oh no
Won't you help me open the door?
I want peace on earth
Happiness and all that it’s worth
Troubles pass by
Leaving me undisturbed

I want peace on earth
I wanna smile
I'm tired of being hurt
Troubles pass by
Leaving me undisturbed
They're leaving me, undisturbed
Yeah
It's alright
Track Name: Living a Lie
Living A Lie
Lyrics & music by E. Burgess

On the outside lookin' in
Everything is cool
Grinning smiles all around
But behind closed doors
The mood has changed
The smiles are replaced by frowns
Nothing disgraceful
No evil here
No one really to blame it on
Nowhere for them to fall

(Chorus)
Just another one living out a lie
Just another soul wanting to cry
It goes on and on
On and on it goes
Just another living out a lie

One plus one really equal three
Soon as three turn into four
To add to your frown
Life turns to a chore
And the kids are out the door
Just another day that turns into the night
No one to really to blame it on
Nowhere for them to fall

(Repeat Chorus)
Track Name: Falling Out of Love Again
Falling Out Of Love Again
Lyrics & music by E. Burgess

Sun has set on the day again
Darkness becomes my own best friend
My mind drifts back to memories
Your face is all I see
The dream is gone and locked away
In the past you will always stay
I guess I'll never understand
I always thought I'd be your man

(Chorus)
I never saw it coming
It hit me from behind
It's raining again
I'm falling out of love again
I was betrayed by a lover and a friend
It's raining again

Now you want to apologize
You’re sorry for your cheatin'
And your lies
Honestly I don't want to know
I'm movin' on, I got to go

(Repeat Chorus x3)
Track Name: Better Days
Better Days
Lyrics & music by E. Burgess

I'm so tired
Oh so tired
Of all their advice
I don't want it
I don't need it
But I guess it's their right
All my life I heard everyone
Tellin' me what to do
Who am I to say that their wrong
And what is the truth

(Bridge)
But still I do
Have my selfish side
But I won't point the finger at you
Would you do the same for me too?

(Chorus)
I've seen better days
Warm summer breezes
Blow my troubles away
Give me the strength
To hope and to pray
For better days

I can't hide it
Although I try it
My feelings can't be ignored
Can't you see that?
I know you believe that
Trust is weathered and worn
Please tell me
What can you believe?
Lookin' out for number one
Who's to blame?
It's such a shame
And what have we become

(Repeat Bridge & Chorus x2)
Track Name: Open the Door
Open the Door
Lyrics & music by E. Burgess

I've been looking for you
All of my life
And I talk to you
Every single night
Can't believe the things I say
Can't believe the things I do
No disappointment, no dismay
Do you expect more from me for you?

(Chorus)
Now I've never felt like this before
Like someone's opened up the door
Everything I need I have
Who could ask for more?
Someone's opened the door

Sometimes I'm all alone with my feelings
Knowing nothing to hide behind
Why am I running?
Why am I scared?
Why do I waste your time?

You want nothing from me but pure love
To let you into my life
I'm ready, I hear what you’re saying
Now everything will be all right

(Chorus)
No I've never felt like this before
Like someone's opened up the door
Everything I need I have
Who could ask for more?
Someone's opened the door

You want nothing from me but pure love
To let you into my life
I'm ready, I hear what you're saying

(Repeat Chorus)
Track Name: All Along
All Along
Lyrics & music by E. Burgess

If it's all the same to you
I'll just stay in bed
Bury my head in the sand
There's just too much sadness
Too much pain
But who am I to complain?
You keep going on about love and peace
About love for your fellow man
When it all comes down
Can't we rise above?
Do you really think we can?

(Chorus)
I think we need a helping hand
Someone to make us strong
The answer has been right here all along

It's scary, it’s strange
Those certain things
Seems to find a way into your life
We all have our problems
We all feel our pain
We must all choose what is right
There's to many worries
Just too many things
Too many lies that cause us strain
Do we ever pause?
Just to stop and think
And can we all be saved

(Repeat Chorus)
Track Name: Something More
Something More
Lyrics & music by E. Burgess

Once in a lifetime
I turned foolish
I'll start to think
Everything is fine
Then suddenly
I'm looking out my window
Good mood goes with it every turn
So burnin' hot could be a sin
I don't know just where to begin
Crazy days the longest of nights
Will I lose the fight?

Everyone's looking for a free ride
No one tries anymore
Everyone’s searching
For that permanent high
Is that all were livin' for?
I want something more

Too many worries
No relief in site
Is it too late to call the game?
No second chances
Not in this fight
No one to comfort me again

(Repeat Bridge & Chorus)
