Track Name: Colors Of The World
Sons and daughters look up and know

Light up your faces and let them glow

And you can feel the colors of the world
Just like a book you'll open wide

Inside yourself you’ll see the skies

You'll become a color of the world



Please be kind

Don't burn your eyes

On the sun that shines on us

Take the time

And learn to fly

And then go, go, go



All that comes and all that goes

Must see it soar and then explode

And you will bleed
The colors of the world

Hand in hand
Or back to back

We're stuck together
Fact is fact

And all make up the colors of the world



Please be wise

Don't turn your eyes

From the sun that shines on us

Take your time

You'll need the guide

And then go, go, go

Track Name: Love At First Sight (album outtake)
This time
I'm really turned around
My mind keeps heading
Where it don't belong
And I know that
You live only once
Never look back
Never have enough
Think I'm crazy
Just my style
And it's not my fault
It's everything I want
I go crazy for you
And it's not my fault
It's just a natural pull
We'd be amazing
It's true
Cause it's love at first sight

This time
The world's turned around
My eyes connecting
And they won't come off
Track Name: The Slide (album outtake)
I get thin
When I'm in this place
I get tired
When the wheels need pace
Now I gotta wait until the slide comes
Gotta wait until the slide comes

Near to the moment when I should be clear
Oh how I waited for the clouds to break
Now I gotta wait until the slide comes
Gotta wait until the slide comes

Raging
Lifting the spell and the locks are off
Moving along in the sidewalks
Want to be there when the slide comes

Would you be near
If I changed my face
Reach for the ruler
When I'm in disgrace
Now I gotta rattle 'til the slide comes
I'm gonna yell 'til the slide comes
Near to me closer
As I run the race
Oh how I've waited for the clouds to break
Now I've gotta wait until the slide comes

Racing
Picking me up
When the stops on
Moving again
On the tightrope
Track Name: Under The Stars (album outtake)
I hold you
In this little car
No one's around
We've got a running start
Hear the alarms
Now run for shelter

Don't look back
Their catching up on us now
Don't pull over
There's nothing we can't do
(We're just breaking through)
Cause we run here
(Cause we're here now)

Under the stars
Can't stop us now
Never slowing down
Cause we're here now

This little car
No surrender
And how far
We can never know
Hear the alarms

Break through the colors of the world
Outside the colors of our world
No stopping
They can't catch us now
Track Name: No Place (album outtake)
I’m headed for no place
Thinking of no plans at all
Packing a suitcase

And I’ll be prepared
You can be sure
Just tell me the where
I'm going

I’m going to no place
Taking a new glance around
Cutting the old chains
And I am prepared
You can be sure
Just tell me the where
I'm going

Get out of your head
We're waiting for you
We're here in no place
Take me to no place
I’ll be in no place
Thinking of you
Thinking of you
