Track Name: Paris in Tears
Here I am, once again, in the rain.
Bow my head, hide my pain, same refrain.
I walk alone, can't stop the train.
Held her hand in mine, it was so cold.
Sang the song she taught me long ago.
She sang along, moment of gold.

Paris in tears. I walk the boulevards of Paris in tears.
Another year, I walk the streets of Paris in tears.

Music soothes the soul, she told me so. 
Wish that I could have made her whole.
My heart aching, I had to let go.
All that remains are long lost echoes,
back to the streets so beautiful and cold.
Memory soaked down to my bones

Paris in tears. I walk the avenues of Paris in tears.
Another year I cross the bridges of Paris.

The cemetery cats watch me as I pass
and I try not to cry- was that our last goodbye?

I walk the streets of Paris. I cross the bridges of Paris.
I walk the avenues of Paris. I walk the boulevards of Paris in tears.
Track Name: Mermaid Serenade
When I was on your hook, you didn’t care.
Lured by shiny promise, I played the fool.
Tried to dance the dance, too hot to be cool.
Time to change the game, light my Lumerian flame
And when I'm swimming free, You'll see me

Like the mermaid serenades all the sailors with a starfish parade.
A flick of the fin and the sea is my oyster.
A new girl, from the grit comes the pearl.
From the grit comes the pearl.

Claimed my Coral Queendom, crown was mine to take.
Out of the undertow, making waves, watch my wake.
I am Untouchable, Midas Gold.
Truth be told, I'm feeling bold.
Free to be me, Siren of the Sea.

Quand j’etais a tes pieds tu m’ ignorais
et maintenant je suis parti, tu t’ennuie.
Je t'aime toujours mais j'en pouvais plus.
j’ai changer les règles du jeux.
Je suis la Sirene, tu peux faire la queue.
Track Name: Room with a View
It was grey that day you went away.
You left behind an empty space. 
Sorrow moved in for awhile
and chased away my smile.
I looked for you in the night,
in strangers faces passing by.
Everywhere i turned
the memories burned.
Thought i had to let you go but now I know-

There's a room with a view 
for you in my heart.
It's been there since that day you went away.
All the love that you gave lives on in me,
because love never dies,  it just shines differently.

I miss the love shine in your eyes
I hide the tears behind mine
Miss your face, your warm embrace.
Memories I can't erase.
I love you more and more each day
and the pain starts to fade.
Everywhere i turn
the memories burn.
Thought i had to let you go but now I know-

Where’d you go, my friend?
I hope it’s somewhere way up high
and that we’ll meet again.
No need for goodbye.
Track Name: Ziegfeld Girl
She had bee stung lips And dimpled knees.
She had dancing feet The desire to please. 
She had the glory of The American Girl.
She had her head in the clouds Golden Gibson curls.

She didn't have a ghost of a notion,
her feathered dreams weren’t meant to be.
She had everything to lose
and now she's singing the Ziegfeld blues.
   
Disillusioned dream girl, don't you know?
They only stay 'til the end of the show.
Disillusioned Dream girl, don’t you know?
Tuxedo's come and go.
They only stay, while you're spinning gold

She had the elite at her feet every night.
She had the diamond glow bathed in spotlight.
She had the lion's share of stage door johnnies. 
She had the brightest star of all the Follies.

She didn't have a ghost of a notion,
her feathered dreams weren’t meant to be.
She had everything to lose,
and now she's singing the Ziegfeld blues.

Disillusioned dream girl, don't you know?
They only stay 'til the end of the show.
Disillusioned Dream girl, don’t you know?
Tuxedo's come and go.
They only stay, while you're spinning gold.
Track Name: Time Killer
I hear the call of a distant crow
who sings headlines sweeter than the Times.
The blood moon rises in the velvet sky.
Darkness falls, the stars align.
I sit and wonder what tomorrow brings.
Another day time passes by.
My mind travels far and wide
wondering where’s the bottom line.
The world goes round,
the world goes round.

Time killer.
I slay the days.
Murder nights
I'm a time killer.
That's my line.
Time killer.
Time killer.
That’s my crime
but time won’t die.

People and pigeons living under bridges
collecting dimes, killing time. 
Bus stop blondes, dressed in white,
counting valentines, killing time.
Melancholic poets wracked with rhymes
drinking wine, killing time.
Fervent lovers in the night
chasing dopamine highs, feeling fine.
Counting stars.
Mending scars.

Time killers.
They slay the days,
murder nights.
They’re time killers.
That's their line
Time killers.
Time killers.
That's their crime
but time won’t die.
But time won’t die

Time killer
I slay the days,
murder nights.
I'm a time killer.
That's my line.
Time killer.
Time killer.
That’s my crime
but time won’t die.
But time won’t die.
But time won’t die .
