Track Name: Waited
Waited
Julie Bai

If blackjack’s my game
This is a hand busted long ago
So why am I still eating
The breadcrumbs off your floor?

I chase the train
Long gone for its destination
Why cycle backwards
to the place where...

I waited and I waited for you
But you never came around
Glanced at my watch
at least a hundred times
But you left me standing there
all alone

If love is like food
This tastes like lemon déjà vu
Why so sour, oh so cruel?
You made me a fool

I waited and I waited for you
But you never came around
Glanced at my watch
at least a hundred times
But you left me standing there
all alone

I waited and waited for you
But you never came around
Glanced at my watch
at least a hundred times
But you left me standing there
(But you left me standing there)
Oh, you left me standing there
all alone
all alone
Track Name: Last Road
Last Road
Julie Bai

Verse:
Can you tell me who I am?
Don't remember how I lost my way
Like a river flowing nowhere
I have cried away my tears
for many years

Pre-Chorus:
Now I'm on my knees
Please meet me where I am
My heart and eyes are opening again

Chorus:
I have come to the last road of myself
Never, ever to return here again
Because of You, the path is clear
I'll see the best days of my life
And I know that I cannot go back
This is the last road of myself

Verse:
No more mirrors looking back
No more sadness in the evening sky
From the darkest night to morning
I will put my trust in You, and stand again

Pre-Chorus:
Now I'm on my knees
Please meet me where I am
My heart and eyes are opening again

Chorus:
I have come to the last road of myself
Never, ever to return here again
Because of You, the path is clear
I'll see the best days of my life
And I know that I cannot go back
This is the last road of myself

Bridge:
New reflections light the way
Renewed for me each day
I will soar above the rain
And find new hope today

Chorus:
I have come to the last road of myself
Never, ever to return here again
Because of You, the path is clear
I'll see the best days of my life
And I know that I cannot go back
I know that I cannot go back
I know that I cannot go back
This is the last road of myself
Track Name: Lose
Lose
Julie Bai

Don’t want to take a backseat anymore
Even with the odds at my door
I’ll drown out the knocking
And set my stage on this very floor

I don’t want to lose anymore
I don’t want to see it all go
I don’t want to lose anymore
I don’t want to see the sunlight
Fading over me

So tired of listening to the sound of fear
Its voice keeps ringing in my ear
Well, it’s time for confrontation
Won’t let it keep me down anymore
anymore

I don’t want to lose anymore
I don’t want to see it all go
I don’t want to lose anymore
I don’t want to see the sunlight
Fading over me

Heartaches have come and they have gone
They’ve led me closer to who I’ll become
It takes faith to move but I’m ready to run
I’m ready to make this dream take flight

I don’t want to lose anymore
I don’t want to see it all go

I don’t want to lose anymore
I don’t want to see it all go
I don’t want to lose anymore
I don’t want to see it all go
(Why don’t I, when will I, see the sunlight?)
(Why don’t I, when will I, see the sunlight?)
(Why don’t I, when will I, see the sunlight?)
Track Name: Running
Running
Julie Bai

Running, but I keep on falling behind
So scared that I cannot get up
If I stop running
Will time be on my side?
These things I wonder
Drag me down under
I’ve got to run

Displacement shows up
Like a guest unexpected
It’s here to take me apart
Decisions take over
The heart is neglected
Feels like I’m falling apart

Working against the clock
That is ticking
Like teardrops that fall to the ground

Running, but I keep on falling behind
So scared that I cannot get up
if I stop running
Will time be on my side?
These things I wonder
Drag me down under
I’ve got to run

Modification is all that surrounds
“Make changes to fit with the crowd”
Information, socialization
It’s driving me over the wall

Working against the clock
That is ticking
Like teardrops that fall to the ground

Running, but I keep on falling behind
So scared that I cannot get up

Detach from the hurry
Connect with the quiet,
Peace of mind
Get off of this merry go round
cause' I just want to stop....

Running, but I keep on falling behind
I'm so scared that I cannot get up
If I stop running
Will time be on my side?
These things I wonder
Drag me down under
I’ve got to run
Running, but I keep on falling behind
Running, will time be on my side?
Running
Track Name: Artificial Lines
Artificial Lines
Julie Bai

Verse:
She builds her castles
with broken shells and sand
Turns the hourglass
as it slips from her hand

Pre-Chorus:
She prayed for an answer
in dire need of truth
Will this be the moment
she see that...

Chorus:
Artificial lines
is what we're walking on
Teetering blind between sky and ground
Touching down to Neverland
Wondering where I am
What do I do?

Verse:
He made a deal with the devil
played the rules of the game
Chased the ring of fire
but lost it all anyway

Pre-Chorus:
He prayed for answer
in dire need of truth
Will this be moment
he sees that...

Chorus:
Artificial lines
is what we're walking on (what we're walking on)
Teetering blind between sky and ground
Touching down to Neverland
Wondering where I am
What do I do?

Bridge:
Your illusions line up
like dominoes of gold
But when they tumble down
would you know where to go?

Chorus:
Artificial lines
is what we're walking on
Teetering blind between sky and ground
Touching down to Neverland
Wondering where I am
What do I do?
What do I do?
Artificial lines
What do I do?

(Wondering where I am, what do I do?)
(Somewhere in Neverland, what do I do?
(Wondering where I am, what do I do?)
(Somewhere in Neverland, what do I do?
Track Name: Glass Box
Glass Box
Julie Bai

I’m so afraid
Like a child
In the dark
Turn on the lights
Help me see
What is right
But don’t take me too far

Glass box, don’t break
These walls keep me safe

Scars weigh me down
It’s a lot to uphold
Put a mask on my face
Imperfections erase
Shield my eyes from harm

Glass box, don’t break
These walls keep me safe

This can’t be real
The picture fades
With each day
Prone to break
Make mistakes
I’ll the take chance
Don’t want to stay this way

Glass box, please break
In here I’ll suffocate

Glass box, don’t break
These walls keep me safe
Glass box, please break
