Track Name: Pathos and Exaltation (Introduction)
Have you ever known the pain of perfection?
Could you ever know this pain, such perfection?
Intensity, beauty and harmony, and perfection 
Voices of angels are telling me I'm unworthy 

Tears in the darkness and the long drive home 
Perfect solitude, but the stars are dimmer far from you
Voices of angels are telling me I'm unworthy
Pathos and exaltation devour me
Track Name: Beautiful Girl
There was some other time
Some crazy night of mine
I was watching you, standing so close you could have reached out to me
But the way you caressed her I knew for sure
She was the most beautiful girl in the world to you
The most beautiful girl 

The way she was singing so
I'd say you're a guy who was in the know
Been together a million times before
But the way she was singing, you'd never have guessed she'd been touched before
She was the most beautiful girl in the world to you
The most beautiful girl 

Somebody told me you shy away
Hiding away from the gaze of a thousand eyes
But when you're together you fly away
And the night is perfection
Stars in a moonlit sky spelling out goodnight
Telling me it's the end of the night
Will I catch sight of you under the streetlight
Under the streetlight

But that was some other time
Some crazy night of mine
I was watching you, standing so close you could have reached out to me
But the way you caressed her I knew for sure
She was the most beautiful girl in the world to you
The most beautiful girl
Beautiful girl
Track Name: I Wait
Jealousy envelops me
I hear you, I stumble 
Finality, and a certain kind of frailty, your death resembles
I can never know what you share with your companions without me
And while that river flows
It quietly tortures all the living souls 
Who want you, and need you, and beg you for more

Still I cry
I will never know you
How could you die when you said it's never over?
So must I wait?
Will eternity heal you?
How long must I wait till I can see you?
It's never too late

Bury me in your Grace, though I am undeserving
Carry me to your kinetic paradise of yearning
Like lovers in the dark your every touch ignites me
But I am never satisfied, you leave before it's over
I want you, I need you, I beg you for more

Still I cry
You're my four leafed clover
How could you die when you said it's never over?
So must I wait?
Will eternity heal you?
How long must I wait till I can see you?
It's never too late

Never too late
Track Name: A Woman Like Me
A woman like me
Trying to find shelter 
And get out of the rain as it falls harder and harder
Her tired eyes frantically seeking any way out - just for a while
Trouble is, she hasn't been sleeping and the kids are screaming
They won't let her hide

A woman like me

A woman like me
Digging in deeper
And a lonely retreat will only make it harder and harder
The guilt kicking in
The clock is ticking for the face in the mirror - will they forgive her?
Trouble is, she hasn't been sleeping and her head is pounding
They won't let her hide

A woman like me

Then a magic moment when you wake and see the sun
It will be a better day and you can fight until they're gone
Dark clouds round the corner, you're overcast again
Big ideas that you are different
But you're just a woman like me

A woman like me
A woman like me
A woman like me
Just a woman like me 
Track Name: No Respect
Body, I want your body
Don't need no respect tonight
Just do the things you do to me all night

Early evening sunlight caresses every fold
Revealing all the signs of a night yet to unfold
Feel your eyes burning into me
When the heat is so intense I know exactly what I need

Body, I want your body
Don't need no respect tonight
Just do the things you do to me all night

Watching every shadow that falls against your skin
The gentle breath of air as the night is setting in
Feel your eyes burning into me
When the heat is so intense I know exactly what I need

Body, I want your body
Don't need no respect tonight
Just do the things you do to me all night
Track Name: Scream
Do you know me
Can you feel the way your every haunting moment sets me free?
I can do this
Step into another's shoes and be your right hand, endlessly

Conscience tells me I should forget this
No way that I can be there
Vengeance has me, I hear its voices
Making me scream

I can't stand this
Living, breathing, every waking moment you are in my soul
I can hear this message in my head
It's telling me to find you endlessly

Conscience tells me I should forget this
No way that I can be there
Vengeance has me, I hear its voices
Making me scream
Track Name: Shining Light
Had a message from my friend today
Told me he had to go away
Could he feel my pain?
It's much too soon to leave
Could he see my tears as they fell upon my sleeve?
A finer friend you could never hope to have
Haven't known him long, but I'm glad that I have
Will always remember the words that he shared:

Always be yourself
Doesn't matter about anybody else
Just shine your light out and your honesty will shine through
And they will find you

So I guess that this must be the end
But I hope that, some day, we can meet again
Maybe you'll watch over and call in now and then
Just 'cause you're leaving don't mean I won't need my friend

Thank you for being my friend
You know it's down to you I found myself in the end
You are my shining light
Would follow you in the darkest night, my friend
