Track Name: Gravity
I'm reaching up for some levity
Feeling the force of gravity.
You take the good, fake through the bad,
Feeling the force of gravity.

1. You float like a feather in the wind and fall when the world ignores your cries. Keep climbing and watch yourself tumbling down. There's no resolution in reprise.

I'm reaching up for some levity
Feeling the force of gravity.
You take the good, fake through the bad,
Feeling the force of gravity.

2. Sing sweetly, charm me with your smile, then roar at me, chill me to the bone. It's crazy I find myself drowning here. I've never been so all alone.

I don't want to drop, but without you I might float away.
Tie me down, tie me down, tie me down, tie me down,
tie me down, tie me down with an overwhelming role to play.

I'm reaching up for some levity
Feeling the force of gravity.
You take the good, fake through the bad,
Feeling the force of gravity.
Track Name: Alone
I was looking out the window checking to see if I heard your car drive by.
Another heartache keeps on crushing. I can't help myself. I tell myself to try. Just try.

The streets are darker. The dogs are barking. The freeway's lit like streams of light by the moon. By streams of light by the moon.

When the light hits me, I feel a little better.
I don't hear you talking in my head.
Everyday is an avalanche of memories
It could bury me, bury me, bury me before I'm dead.
And I don't want to be alone, here without you.
I don't want to be alone.

I remember how you looked that night.
I left my date to be the closest by your side
and then you said in front of everyone how you were gonna make me your bride. Oh, I died.

A racing heart and we let it start. I saw my future in a minute when you turned and smiled. I'm like a child sad and scarred.

When the light hits me, I feel a little better.
I don't hear you talking in my head.
Everyday is an avalanche of memories
It could bury me, bury me, bury me before I'm dead.
And I don't want to be alone, here without you.
I don't want to be alone.

(break)

When the light hits me, I feel a little better.
I don't hear you talking in my head.
Everyday is an avalanche of memories
It could bury me, bury me, bury me before I'm dead.
And I don't want to be alone, here without you.
I don't want to be alone.
Track Name: Spiritual Heart
Oooh

Locked up inside us, we've got a spiritual heart.
Locked up inside us, but it's frozen, yeah, it's frozen right now.

Oooh

Locked up inside us, we've got a spiritual heart.
Locked up inside us, baby, but it's frozen, yeah it's frozen right now.

And if we want it, yeah if want it, stop and embrace every face in the crowd, our humanity will save us and there's hope for us all.

There is hope for us all. There is hope for us all.
There is hope for us all.

If we stop and make sure we know this is all that we've got in the world, this one time and I know, I know I'm not the only only one.

Locked up inside us, we've got a spiritual heart.
Track Name: Warrior
When the cancer crawls into your bones, the fear makes you feel all alone.
You find a trust that never fades, I am a Warrior.

City fighting in the storm. victims clutching to be warm,
A power pulls you to survive, I am a Warrior.

I am a Warrior. I am a Warrior. I am a Warrior. Try it on, try it on, try it on.

Mother smiling at her son. One year hers and the next year gone.
She gives him space to become. I am a Warrior.

Little girl, afraid she won't be heard. The rules were made for boys they tell her in the world. She's working twice as hard as him. I am a Warrior.

I am a Warrior. I am a Warrior. I am a Warrior. Try it on, try it on, try it on.
Track Name: Modern Lovers (Louis Cole remix)
Someone's laughing. Someone's dancing like they're all alone.
And noone here really cares if in the morning, they're working to the bone.
There's a night sky blazing over everyone with the passion of a hero's call.
There's a big world warning, but it doesn't interest me at all.

But we're here right now, modern lovers, exploding almost everywhere.
Here right now, modern lovers, burning up without a care.
Here right now, modern lovers, modern lovers
Here right now, burning up, burning, burning up.

I'm barely breathing. My heart is pounding as we move.
And as the rhythm brings you closer, I know we're going to make it through.
All the walls that are separating everyone, all the lines that push us all away,
We've got tonight and forever baby, until we watch the sun come up today.

But we're here right now, modern lovers, exploding almost everywhere.
Here right now, modern lovers, burning up without a care.
Here right now, modern lovers, modern lovers
Here right now, burning up, burning, burning up.
