Nature Girl 05:51
there is a girl a very strange nocturnal girl who's very shy yet very wish and also sad and blue she came my way on a cold dark rainy day and though worlds apart she stole my heart and nothings been the same you know there's just one thing you could learn from me and that's the sacred sound of the holy bells and as she turn around she halfway smiled and said to me love is all love is everything but when you've lost lost your love it's the saddest thing it's the saddest thing in the world

Bodyguard 06:01
I think I need a bodyguard to keep me safe from harm cause love has left me broken hurting and wanting how could it be so cruel I could not imagine things could get much worse but you know they always do every time I think I'm finally getting past it I fail and feel like a fool I think I need a bodyguard wont you be my bodyguard I think I need a smiling face someone to help me get through cause I am lost and drowning slipping and sinking in this ocean of blue I remember walking strait into a nightmare all my secret fears come true someone should have told me from the very start that love would brake me in two I think I need a bodyguard wont you be my bodyguard I think I need a bodyguard wont you please be my bodyguard I think I need protection from a world that's grown so lame and you know were to find me slipping through the shadows to avoid the pain I guess I should warn you everybody says that I've gone a little insane and I just have to laugh cause I don't think their wrong no I hold live to blame I think I need a bodyguard wont you be my bodyguard

Long Ago 06:43
the birds still sing their sweet sad songs at least there sad to me for I have lost my one true love and so I sit a grieve long ago long ago I lost my love so long ago forget the sun forget the days for me there's only night my world won't turn if she's not here and so I sit and grieve long ago long ago my world stopped turning long ago the moon and stars still shine for me but such an icy blue my heart can't sing if she's not here and so I sit and grieve long ago long ago my heart stopped singing long ago yes beauty's left her mark on me and so I sit and grieve long ago long ago my world stopped turning ny heart stopped singing I lost my love so long ago
