about

Monroe Los Angeles, California

They have steadily penetrated the music scene on both west and east coasts, earning a loyal fan base with their well-crafted sound and well-honed stage chemistry. ... more

Track Name: Oh I Know
Oh I know

City lights fade away, oh I know
(Oh I know)
So afraid, so afraid of being on your own
(On your own)
Just change your mind
Change your direction lose, your soul
(Lose your soul)
While we wait, while we wait for the day
And I’ll leave it all behind, just to get out of this
I can’t take it anymore

While we wait, while we wait for the day
To come
Why don’t you stay, why don’t you stay for the day
It’s ok

Figure it out cause I'm tired of being on my own
(On my own)
And soon you’ll find, what it is when you’re all alone
(All alone)
And I’ll leave it all behind, just to get out of this
I can’t take it anymore

While we wait, while we wait for the day
To come
Why don’t you stay, why don’t you stay for the day
Its ok

Waiting for, waiting for a better day
And we’re fighting on
Fighting just to lose again

While we wait, while we wait for the day
To come
Why don’t you stay, why don’t you stay for the day
Its ok
Track Name: What Can I Do
Girl, I don’t know what it is
I’m going crazy over it
And it’s just those things you do
That’s got me falling love with you
So many times, I try, I fail
I can’t do this by myself
Can you tell me what to do
Give me some help

Cause all day and all night I sit and dream of you

Tell me what can I do
To get back to you
Tell me what do I do
My heart is split in two
Split in two

I always tried to make you stay
This is the price I got to pay
For hurting you the way that I do
I don’t wont to be, alone forever
Just show me the way

Cause all day and all night I sit and dream of you

Tell me what can I do
To get back to you
Tell me what do I do
My heart is split in two

I can’t change my heart
It’s too late now
Start over, start over
I can’t place my feet
I’m floating, drifting away

Just take one look, don’t you hurry and rush
You’re going to make it; you’re going to make it through
Track Name: Alternate Ending
Tell me, who do you think you are
You’re no superstar
Maybe in a fairy-tail world you may be
But, this is real
Here’s the deal

I know there are happy endings
In this world we live in
There might be some clouds in the sky
There are no super heroes to save you
But then again who needs any superman

Baby I’m in a super league of my own
Have no fear
The one you’re waiting on to save the day
Is right here

I’ll meet all your expectations
Expose your revelations
Make our own alternate ending
Happy ending

Tell me if we’re right or wrong
We’ve been in this so long
So much has happened
But I know that this experience
Has been my lesson, and I’ve learned for sure

Baby I’m in a super league of my own
Have no fear
The one you’re waiting on to save the day
Is right here

I’ll meet all your expectations
Expose your revelations
Make our own alternate ending
Happy ending

What are you waiting for
Go out and call
I know you’re waiting on a savior
To come and save the day

There’s no way, Ill let them take your love
Track Name: Sooner Than Later
What can we do about it
Loveless so bare
We’ve turned into animals
What can we say about it
Being in a lie so sustained
Stained with the images of the love you held

Asleep in your sorrow-full
Hurt-filled conscious
You’re awake but your eyes are closed

(Sooner than later)
Baby Don’t you let go
(Sooner than later)
Even though it’s getting a little hard to hold on
(Sooner than later)
I know, sooner than later it will

What can we say about it
Its all been said
Livin’ in rewind in my head
What shall we call this
Just another mistake
So many, I’ve lost count

Asleep in your sorrow-full
Hurt-filled conscious
You’re awake but your eyes are closed

(Sooner than later)
Baby Don’t you let go
(Sooner than later)
Even though it’s getting a little hard to hold on
(Sooner than later)
I know, sooner than later it will

Maybe we’re just waiting for something more
I know we’ll be waiting until the day comes
Sooner than later
Track Name: So You Understand
I stumble and fall, tripping over my words
Trying to get you to notice, I don’t think you’ve heard
What I'm saying, I don’t, think it means a thing at all

So I make excuses to cover the stench of attraction
I slowly get high from the smell, will I reach you
Cause at the moment I can’t tell

Show me a sign
I want to lay it on the line

This is your jump start baby, your jump start
This is the beginning of the end
Trying to find some way to kinda make some sense of
this
What are you saying, don’t even wanna hear it anymore
You should just keep your mouth closed

Show me a sign
I want to lay it on the line
My heart is an open book, wont you take a look inside

Cause things may not happen the way we want
But oh I know, there’s much more
So dry your lonely eyes
Those tears you don’t need anymore
There’s much more

I’m tired of all this pain
I need to be, in love again
I’m not who I used to be, I need to be myself again
Tryin’ to figure this out
Tryin’ to get to you
But there’s no where, that I can run to
Trying to get back to me and you!
If I could change your mind
Change your ways
And rearrange, when it was only lovin’ between me and
you

Cause things may not happen the way we want
But oh I know
There’s much more
So dry your lonely eyes
Those tears, you don’t need anymore
There’s much more

I’m tired of all this pain
I need to feel in love again
I’m not who I used to be
I need to be myself again

There’s so
Much more
Than this
Than this
Track Name: Don't Run
Show yourself
Show yourself
I don’t think I can make it all alone
It’s just so hard
This road seems so long

Cause I’ve been thinking
So long and so hard
I’ve been patient
So wont you come on

Don’t you run, don’t you run
I’m gonna be right there
There is no way that you can hide
There is no reason you should fight it

What it is
What it really is
Is something you’ve been waiting on to come along
Being here, Is all I could ever want
Give me all you got

Cause I’ve been thinking
So long and so hard
I’ve been patient
So won’t you come on

Don’t you run, don’t you run
I’m gonna be right there
There is no way that you can hide
There is no reason you should fight

Tell me where you’re gonna find another
All we got is the light to guide
Take me for my simple mind
All I see inside of this light is your eyes

I’ve been thinking

Don’t you run, don’t you run
I’m gonna be right there
There is no way that you can hide
There is no reason you should fight
