Track Name: Don't Fear The Unknown
I want to be young forever
Living my life without a care
Making choices that I never
Would change, no I wouldn’t dare

Don’t fear the unknown

Cause I want more I need more
Give me liberty or give me death
I want more I need more
Until I take my last breath
I want to be free

I am my own person
Not some ball of sculpted clay
Until the day I’m in a hearse and
My skin is cold as Winter’s day

Don’t fear the unknown

Cause I want more I need more
Give me liberty or give me death
I want more I need more
Until I take my last breath
I want to be free

Cause I want more I need more
Give me liberty or give me death
I want more I need more
Until I take my last breath
I want to be free
I want to be free
I want to be free
Track Name: Blacksheep
A blue bird in the snow
Runt of the litter
Raised like the rest
But somehow I differ

But hold just for a moment and you’ll see something clear
I am just a blacksheep and I don’t belong here

Young but old at heart
Grew legs but learned to fly
Look at me know
I’ve flown so high

But hold just for a moment and you’ll see something clear
I am just a blacksheep and I don’t belong here

And that’s who I am
And that’s who I am
And that’s who I am
And that’s who I am

But hold just for a moment and you’ll see something clear
I am just a blacksheep and I don’t belong

And that’s who I am
(And they love me just the same)
Track Name: The Wild Side
Once when I was young a wolf took me from my home
She raised me like her own but I still felt alone
She bared her fangs and growled and then I learned to howl
My human nature died, and out came my wild side

Oooh

Have you ever soared like an owl in the night?
Have you ever roared like a lion in a fight?
Do you wanna know what birds sing in their songs?
I’ll tell you this, the wild side is a bliss

Oooh

So come to the wild side baby tonight
Take my hand let me lead you there better leave your friends behind
Let’s take a journey girl you’re a birdy
Shed your skin let the beast within take your heart and soul tonight
I’m going crazy for you just let me do what I do
Yeah you better watch your back or else you’ll end up going crazy too
So come to the wild side baby tonight
Take my hand let me lead you there better leave your friends behind

Oooh

Wandering through the trees walk on the crumbled leaves
Howl at the full moon join the pack there’s always room
But once you’re one of us, there’s no turning back
You’ll learn to love the pain you’ll never be the same


Oooh
Howl at the moon

So come to the wild side baby tonight
Take my hand let me lead you there better leave your friends behind
Let’s take a journey girl you’re a birdy
Shed your skin let the beast within take your heart and soul tonight
I’m going crazy for you just let me do what I do
Yeah you better watch your back or else you’ll end up going crazy too
So come to the wild side baby tonight
Take my hand let me lead you there better leave your friends behind

Oooh
Howl at the moon
Track Name: Bridges
Oooh

Does it always have to feel like this?
Rid me of this constant emptiness
A candle burning bright got stripped of its light
Will I ever find true happiness?

With hearts on fire we sing along
And say three words that’ll make us drown
We build these bridges just to burn them down
Our hands they ache for the empty space
And tears rush down a tired face
We build these bridges just to burn them down

Am I meant to live a life alone?
Will my aching heart find a home?
Uncertain and afraid, my mind’s about to break
Should I take the only path I know?

With hearts on fire we sing along
And say three words that’ll make us drown
We build these bridges just to burn them down
Our hands they ache for the empty space
And tears rush down a tired face
We build these bridges just to burn them down

And I lie awake at night and tell myself it’ll be alright
I’ve never had a year worse spent in love
Sometimes it hits me hard like I’ve been run over by a speeding car
I’ve never had a year worse spent in love

Oooh

With hearts on fire we sing along
And say three words that’ll make us drown
We build these bridges just to burn them down

With hearts on fire we sing along
And say three words that’ll make us drown
We build these bridges just to burn them down

With hearts on fire we sing along
And say three words that’ll make us drown
We build these bridges just to burn them down

With hearts on fire we sing along
And say three words that’ll make us drown
We build these bridges just to burn them down
