Track Name: Runaway (Crescendo Mix)
RUNAWAY
by Mikei


If you want to Runaway, well go ahead,
Cause I can't live like this anymore
If you want to Runaway…

Every time I come around you're nowhere near, to be found and
The only words I hear you speak are, "leave a message after the sound"

Well,
Slow down, Slow down
We're fast approaching another major fall out
Slow down, Slow down
You been waiting, here's your chance

If you want to Runaway, well go ahead,
Cause I can't live like this anymore
If you want to Runaway, well go 'head!
Cause I can't live like this,
No I can't live like this

Any-more, anymore, anymore

When I asked you, "how did all of this mess we're in come about?"
Silence fell upon your lips with both eyes shifted to the ground

Well,
Slow down, Slow down
We're fast approaching another major fall out
Slow down, Slow down
You been waiting, here's your chance

If you want to Runaway, well go ahead,
Cause I can't live like this anymore
If you want to Runaway, well go 'head!
Cause I can't live like this,
No I can't

If you want to Runaway, well go ahead,
Cause I can't live like this anymore
If you want to Runaway, well go 'head!
Cause I can't live like this,
No I can't live like this,

Any-more, anymore, anymore
Track Name: Butterflies
BUTTERFLIES
By Mikei



I got the butterflies
As I begin to dial
And I really don't know why
Normally I'm not this shy

So do I say hello,
Or "hi, how's it going"
With so many words to choose
I'm pretty sure my thoughts I'll lose

So should I find the courage

(chorus)
Pick up, Pick up
Please don't make me
Hang up, Hang up
I've got to hear
Your voice, Your voice
Please pick up

Soft and sweet soprano
Answer calm and gentle
Don't leave me here alone
With this buzzing dial tone

Though fear has given way
My fingers find their place
Ringing sounds, I've no time left
Better catch my final breath

With my new found courage

(chorus)
Pick up, Pick up
Please don't make me
Hang up, Hang up
I've got to hear
Your voice, Your voice
Please pick up

Pick up, Pick up
I've got to hear
your voice
Pick up, Pick up
your voice, your voice
Please pick up
Track Name: Seeing Clearly
SEEING CLEARLY
by Mikei

Out in the open country
A man with eyes like the moon
All of the sights that he sees
Unlike any he's used to

Branches bending
Leaves wave hello
The sky is breathing
And she said, "you should know

(Chorus)
This is seeing clearly
You're not, You're not dreaming
Yes, you're Seeing Clearly
Do you see?"

And as he walks onward
Over and across the hills
The truth ignites a burning
Eclipse of his pupils

Branches bending
Leaves wave hello
The sky is breathing
And she said "you should know

This is Seeing Clearly
You're not, You're not dreaming
Yes, you're, Seeing Clearly
Do you see?"
This is seeing clearly
You're not, you're not dreaming
It's life, life and only
Do you see?
Do you, do you see?"

Branches bending
Leaves wave hello
The sky is breathing
And she wants you,

This is Seeing Clearly
You're not, You're not dreaming
Yes, you're, Seeing Clearly
Do you see?"
This is seeing clearly
You're not, you're not dreaming
It's life, life and only
Do you see
Do you, do you see?
