Track Name: Taking Me Over
TAKING ME OVER
Words and Music by Al-x

Verse 1:
Sometimes I feel I don't belong
It's hard when everything feels wrong
And all the days go on and on
Don't know if I can hold on for long

Link:
Then like an angel from my dreams
You're not a stranger when we meet
And I fall straight into your arms
You lift me up

Chorus:
And you're taking me, taking me over
And you're taking me, taking me over

Verse 2:
Keep going in circles on this road
Keep learning things I should have known
Sometimes I just want to play
Sometimes I'm tired of living this way

Link:
Then like an angel from my dreams
You're not a stranger when we meet
And I fall straight into your arms
You lift me up

Chorus:
And you're taking me, taking me over
And you're taking me, taking me over

Bridge:
Taking me, taking me
Taking me, taking me
Taking me, taking me - over

Chorus repeats:
And you're taking me, taking me over
And you're taking me, taking me over
Track Name: Over This
OVER THIS
Words and Music by Al-x

Verse 1:
Run run run run run
No one can catch me
Cuz I'm running from myself and the beast that lives within me

Link:
And I don't wanna, I don't wanna
Waste another day on this disease that I created
Oh I hated on myself, put happiness up on the shelf
Till I can learn, till I can love, till I am free

Chorus:
No one can stop me
Oh wait just one thing
But I'm gonna get over this
No one can stop me
No one can top me
I'm gonna get over this

Verse 2:
They say it's just a phase
And I should move on
But I'm so wrapped up in its web
It's hard to always be strong

Link:
And I don't wanna, I don't wanna
Waste another day on this disease that I created
Oh I hated on myself, put happiness up on the shelf
Till I can learn, till I can love, till I am free

Chorus:
No one can stop me
Oh wait just one thing
But I'm gonna get over this
No one can stop me
No one can top me
I'm gonna get over this

Bridge:
Some things are worth fighting for, even if it's over and over
Some things are worth fighting for
And I will get over
I will get over

Chorus: (repeats)
No one can stop me
Oh wait just one thing
But I'm gonna get over this
No one can stop me
No one can top me
I'm gonna get over this!
Track Name: Lost in Your Eyes
LOST IN YOUR EYES
Words and Music by Al-x

Verse 1:
Oh I wanna hold you
I wanna kiss you
If you leave for a moment
Then I miss you
Oh I wanna love you
With all my power
It's growing stronger
By the hour

Chorus:
And I've been waitin' all my life
For this moment & tonight you're mine
I've been livin' on desire
Now you're here, I'm lost in your eyes

Verse 2:
The way you hold my hand
The way you see me
When you're around me
Somehow you free me
You can't be of this world
I can't conceive it
When you say I'm your girl
I can't believe it

Chorus:
And I've been waitin' all my life
For this moment & tonight you're mine
I've been livin' on desire
Now you're here, I'm lost in your eyes
Lost in your eyes
Lost in your eyes

Bridge:
You are the best thing
You make my heart sing
La da da da dum
This feeling's so strong
I know we belong
In love, in love!

Music Break:
Da da da da da da da da (repeats)

Chorus:
And I've been waitin' all my life
For this moment & tonight you're mine
I've been livin' on desire
Now you're here, I'm lost in your eyes
Lost in your eyes X 4
Track Name: Not Over You
NOT OVER YOU
Words and Music by Al-x

Verse 1:
The picture's fading
The one of me and you
Your eyes don't look as blue
And I'm still waiting
For my heart to break in two
Isn't that what it's supposed to do?

Link:
But I'm still changing, I'm still growing
Always searching, never knowing
What is fake and what is true
Always learning, always running
Shaping what I am becoming
I don't know what to do

Chorus:
(Cuz) I'm not over you
I'm not over you
And some part of me will always hold onto
The way I feel about you

Verse 2:
It's all about timing
And my watch stopped when you came my way
It was my perfect day
The silver lining
Is all the beauty that we made
For me it'll never fade away

Link:
But I'm still changing, I'm still growing
Always searching, never knowing
What is fake and what is true
Always learning, always running
Shaping what I am becoming
I don't know what to do

Chorus:
(Cuz) I'm not over you
I'm not over you
And some part of me will always hold onto
The way I feel about you

Bridge:
I can't become what I'm supposed to be
With the ghost of you still haunting me

Chorus:
I'm not over you
I'm not over you
And some part of me will always hold onto
The way I feel about you X 3
Track Name: Moment to Moment
MOMENT TO MOMENT
Words & Music by Al-x

There's nothing like your love
There's nothing like this moment
[repeat]

V1
This is the first time I ever felt this way
This is the first time I've ever been able to say -
I love you X 3
You came along and turned everything around
I feel so high and I'm never coming down
I need you X 3

Link:
All it took was one look in your eyes X 2

Chorus:
And I fall more in love with you
Moment to Moment
[repeat]

V2
Feels like I'm breathing different air
I'm hypnotized all I can do is stare
I want you X 3
I've got it so bad I can't even sleep
Just want you closer with every heartbeat
I crave you X 3

Link:
All it took was one look in your eyes X 2

Chorus:
And I fall more in love with you
Moment to Moment
[repeat]

Moment to moment X 3

Bridge:
Each moment I fall deeper into
The spell that you've cast
I want this to last
I will love you unconditionally
From this moment to eternity

There's nothing like your love
There's nothing like this moment
[repeat]

Chorus:
And I fall more in love with you
Moment to Moment
[repeat]

There's nothing like your love
There's nothing like this moment
[repeat]
Track Name: Undercover
UNDERCOVER
by Al-x

Verse 1:
You want the best of me
You want what you cannot see
You have ways to make me believe
That I'm all you need

Link:
Why are we always sneakin' 'round
Hiding places all over town
When we're alone, you're all mine
Where do you go the rest of the time

Chorus:
You want my love but we're undercover X 4

Verse 2:
It's not fair to treat me this way
But it feels so good I just can't complain
It's so hot my heart's aflame
When you call my name

Link:
Why are we always sneakin' 'round
Hiding places all over town
When we're alone, you're all mine
Where do you go the rest of the time

Chorus:
You want my love but we're undercover X 4

Bridge/Music Break:
You you you want my
You you you want my
You you you want my love

Chorus:
You want my love but we're undercover X 4
Track Name: Q
Q
Words & Music by Al-x

V1
Well I've been waiting for a while, but now it's here
I've been as restless as a child, the time is near

Link
Your love is like water washing over me X 2

Chorus:
I'm not alone even though I can't see you
All that I know is you're near cuz I breathe you

V2
It's been a mystery for a while, but now it's clear
I was just waiting on a sign to stop the fear

Link
Your love is like water washing over me X 2

Chorus:
I'm not alone even though I can't see you
All that I know is you're near cuz I breathe you

Bridge:
And no way, no way that I could ever stop believing
No way, no way the feeling's just too strong

Chorus:
I'm not alone even though I can't see you
All that I know is you're near cuz I breathe you

chorus repeats
Track Name: Most of All
MOST OF ALL
Words and Music by Al-x

Verse 1:
Here I am, alone again, drifting with my thoughts
I can see, where I've been, and all the things I've lost
I could spend eternity thinking how it should be
But that won't bring you back to me

Link 1:
And I miss you 
When the walls start closing in 
I miss you so

Chorus:
I don't know just where I'll  go
Or what I'm waiting for
But I feel I'm getting close to being something more
When the light starts fading, just before night falls
I miss you most of all

Verse 2:
I am dreaming, half-awake, feels like I'm flying
I could soar or I could break
But at least I'm trying
I get so focused it's hard to see the world beyond my view
But that all changes when I'm with you

Link 2:
And I miss you when the world stops making sense
I miss you so

Chorus:
I don't know just where I'll  go
Or what I'm waiting for
But I feel I'm getting close to being something more
When the light starts fading, just before night falls
I miss you most of all

Bridge:
No one knows the heartache that I'm going through
I like to pose and show I'm strong
On it goes, but I hold the memory of you close to me
Close to my heart

Chorus:
I don't know just where I'll  go
Or what I'm waiting for
But I feel I'm getting close to being something more
When the light starts fading, just before night falls
I miss you most of all
I miss you most of all...
