01 Star (3:43)

(Oo-hoo, ah ah, ah ah)
Here we go

Ooh yeah, it's getting dark
Oh no, they've got an attitude that kills me (kills me)
But then: Oh my, and there you are
I know you're not an ordinary being
But a solitudinarian, oh, who got it all wrong

You shine like a star: (oo-hoo) if only you ever knew
You'd go out and bloom, (oo-hoo) if only you ever knew
You're very uncool (ooh yeah) and forever wonderful. I know

Easy to make you out
I see you're not an ordinary being
But a luminary hearted soul who got it all wrong

You shine like a star: (oo-hoo) if only you ever knew
You'd go out and bloom, (oo-hoo) if only you ever knew
You're very uncool (ooh yeah) and forever wonderful. I know

You're a solitudinarian, a solitudinarian
A luminary hearted soul who got it all wrong
You know, you got it all wrong

You shine like a star: (oo-hoo) if only you ever knew
You'd go out and bloom, (oo-hoo) if only you ever knew
You're very uncool (ooh yeah) but forever wonderful. I know

(Oo-hoo, ah ah, oh oh)
Starlet, I'm yours

02 Empty (4:30)

Hey Jenny, please. I'm not in love with you
It can't be that hard to understand
I am not your man

Something is wrong. I'm not the same again
It's all very odd
Hope you understand
Don't you hold my hand!

And now I'm empty and clean
All alone now, boy! Yeah
And I am all I have for now
Trapped alone in my wonder-wonderland

Go, Johnny, go. Don't be a blue-eyed boy
The world is your home
Now you understand
It's a wonderland

And now I'm empty and clean
All alone now, boy! Yeah
And I am all I have for now
I'm trapped alone in my wonder-wonderland

So I'm alone now, boy!
All is open to me (whoa)
I am guilty and free
So I'll be gone now

I am empty and clean
All alone now, boy! Yeah
And I am all I have for now
Trapped alone in my wonder-wonderland

03 Lauren Caught My Eye (3:49)

(Digital) x 5

Lauren caught my eye
Lauren caught my eye
Now nothing is the same
Lauren is her name

Mais je ne sais pas qui tu es derrière ton visage digital
Je suis amoreux de l'image
Et j'ai peur que tu sois seulement un mirage
Je ne sais pas qui tu es, qui tu es

Lauren made me zoom
Lauren had me good
Now nothing is the same
Lauren is to blame

Mais je ne sais pas qui tu es derrière ton visage digital
Je suis amoreux de l'image
Et j'ai peur que tu sois seulement un mirage
Je ne sais pas qui tu es, qui tu es

Je ne sais pas qui tu es derrière ton visage digital
Je suis amoreux de l'image
Et j'ai peur que tu sois seulement un mirage
Je ne sais pas qui tu es derrière ton visage

(Digital) [to fade]

04 Of Hope And Despair (3:17)

Today we will stop faking and
celebrate with full hearts
Take these words, discover me

Oh will you stay with me?
And will you play with me?
Oh will you save my ass?
Or will we go down once again?

One day we will pop unless we start
to level with ourselves
Take these chords and cover me

Oh will you stay with me?
And will you play with me?
Oh will you save my ass?
Or will we go down once again?
Are we going down once again?

Oh will you stay with me?
And will you play with me?
Oh will you save my ass?
Or will we go down once again?
Are we going down once again?
Will we go down once again?

05 New York (3:55)

You got your start, you went to New York. Yeah. It's enormous
You went to see just where the wild wind blows
And it's more than you

You are in New York
This is heavy
No doubt about that
Dreams will happen

You cross your heart and hope you never die in this life
You want to feel how deep the new world breathes
And it's more than you

You are in New York
This is heavy
No doubt about that
This is heaven

And then one day, you rock the USA. Yeah! Wow!
And it's more than you

You are in New York
Streetlights glitter
brighter than stars
This is heavy
No doubt about that
This is heaven
You are in New York

06 Oh What A Night (4:13)

Oh what a night we had. Oh what a lovely night
And suddenly you came to me nervously, ee-ee
Oh what a time we had. Oh what a lovely time
How easily the world agreed with all that we hoped for
Oh yeah, ah ha

Look at me now
And promise me this:
All things are perfect
Don't say that you wouldn't love me

Oh what a thrill we had. Oh what a lovely thrill
And something new was flowing through you and me, ee-ee
Oh what a night we had, oh what a lovely night
I think we knew just why we were breathing so deep
Oh yeah, ah ha

Look at me now
And promise me this:
All things are perfect
Don't say that you wouldn't love me

The evening's so still
Like waiting for this
All things are perfect
Don't say that you wouldn't love me

07 Simple Things (3:57)

We want all very simple things
but we know very little
And so we get very complicated stuff
love and such, 'cause all in all we're beautiful

How easily we fall in love
You walk to me, you talk to me
And sudden glances fall upon you and me
This harmony was meant to be a symphony

We all assume that we rule our lives
but we can't even hold our breath
Who knows how suddenly worlds are turning
how suddenly things may change?
We are so terribly unpredictable and wonderful
Just turn around and I'll be gone

How easily we fall in love
You walk to me, you talk to me
Then suddenly you go again
I'm losing you, I'm losing you
Oh talk to me, I'm losing you

And now, it's all very simple now
I hope you get this love alive, as easy as it is

How easily we fall in love
You walk to me, you talk to me
And suddenly you're far away
I'm losing you, I'm losing you
Then silently you answer me:
"You're fading out, I'm losing you"
Oh talk to me. I'm holding on

08 Times (3:24)

Times under melodies
Strange enough for a dream
for a harmony, a song to sing for you
funky aphrodites
All you need is life

Before you know, she will get you under the wing
She will hover light as the wind
She will rein you

You are the heroines
of this age
true to adrenaline and Terylene. Cool

And before you know, she will get you under the wing
She will hover light as the wind
She will rein you

And she won't feel a thing
'Cause you'll take care of it
You will remember these times

The heart weighs a ton, she will hover light as the wind
You will love her more than you should
She'll contain you under the wing
She will rein you

We were a family of this age

09 Phoebe (4:54)

She's leaving me now
"I'm gonna let you go". Oh yeah
Staring me down
"I'm gonna let you go", she says

She's fading me out
I thought we were meant to be. Oh yeah
Scaring me off
"I'm gonna stop right now", she says

And suddenly something is holding me down
Oh my love, Phoebe has gone away today, now the rain won't stop
And I'm easily torn. I thought she would never let me go

"Now the season is high
I'm gonna step right out". Oh yeah
"Follow your heart
I'm gonna let you go", she says

And suddenly something is tearing me down
Oh my love, Phoebe has gone away today, now the rain won't stop
And I'm easily torn. I thought she would never let me go. Oh yeah

She's leaving me now
"I'm gonna let you go", she says
Phoebe has gone away today, now the rain won't stop

And I'm easily torn. I thought she would never let me go. Oh yeah

Phoebe has gone away today, now the rain won't stop
And I'm easily torn. I thought she would never let me go

10 Secrets (4:56)

Will you understand what I cannot say?
Will you read my thoughts on and on again?
Will you feel this way more and more and more?
Now who do you love now or on the whole?

Hello. All I want is you, oh oh
Hey you, give it up, you cannot resist these secrets

So uneasily you and I will meet
Only secretly you and I will feel
Now who do you love now or on the whole?

Hello. All I want is you
Hey you, give it up, you cannot resist these secrets

Nobody should know what we should not do
Only secretly

Hello. All I want is you
Hey you, give yourself away, hey hey
Feel it, give it up, you cannot resist these secrets

Was it love that was here for a while?
Or just someone you knew before?
Did you see where it went?
Did it say what it was?
And could you hear what it said or whispered 'bout you and me?

11 Fireworks (3:37)

Open your eyes, look up tonight
In the scariest dark hides a marvellous spark

And I know that fire works
I've seen the fireworks
Down here, a higher world
I've seen you

Sparkles flew as brightness blew
First a heavenly glow, then the colours explode

And I know that fire works
I've seen the fireworks
Down here, a higher world
I've seen you
I've seen you

And I know that fire works
I've seen the fireworks
Down here, a higher world
I've seen you
I've seen you
