Track Name: Bowie Daydream
i'm just sitting here crying
nobody really knows what's wrong
you know i really think I'm dying
so I look up at the stars and then appears something wild a man with spaceship eyes electric blue meteor descends from the sky
oh man this can't be real rub my eyes
David Bowie takes my hand and off we fly

he said "hey girl" in his very Bowie way
"you can forget all your problems for today, yeah those adults don't understand you because their magic is long gone" well he told me I
I still had magic in my eyes
we're out of here atmosphere tell my friends i said goodbye midnight satellite can't get much higher spaceship equipped with bright lights and wires 4, 3, 2, 1

out here in space everything is all right
no time to waste cause time is bent out of shape
cool bright blue stars that glow and glow for miles
well I'm sorry earth but ill be gone for a while

if you're just sitting there crying
nobody really knows what's wrong
if you really think you're dying
then just look up at the stars
Track Name: Still Here
this is not what i want
this is not what i need
despite every good intention
i see whats lying underneath
if i were not me I would have cut my wrists with a broken mirror
should be buried in the ground
but I'm still around without a doubt still stuck in your cage
i'm still around without a doubt with my pretty teenage pain

I hold on to the past
i try to make it last forever but it won't and i can't make it any clearer
i probably need some sleep in my dreams they like to creep around and around on repeat
but like i ought to know by now

this is not what i want
this is what i need
i am not you and you are not me
if i were not me i would have cut my wrists with a broken mirror
should be buried in the ground
but I'm still around
bright futures come to those who wait this out
yeah I'm still around with my pretty teenage pain

I hold on to the past i try to make it last forever but it won't and i can't make it any clearer
I probably need some sleep in my dreams they like to creep around and around on repeat
but like i ought to know by now
Track Name: Ghost
I cannot see
I cannot see me becoming anyone
becoming anyone
I cannot see
I cannot see me doing anything
doing anything
at all
at all
because they drained the blood from my head
made me a ghost like everyone
they shut me up and kicked me out
invisible like everyone
like everyone

I cannot be
I cannot be the only one
the only one
I cannot be
I cannot be alone in this someone help me out
someone help me out
come on
come on

because they drained the blood from my head
made me a ghost like everyone
they shut me up and kicked me out
invisible like everyone
like everyone

you cannot see
what is not in the spotlight
you won't see me because I'm never in that spotlight
don't think about the details because they are never going to see it
I am in the details and they are never going to see it
at all
at all

because they drained the blood from my head
made me a ghost like everyone
they shut me up and kicked me out
invisible like everyone
like everyone
like everyone else
like everyone else
Track Name: Only Sometimes
they think i am a liar cause they cannot see you
you shouldn't be so sad when you have all that you do
invisible weight upon my shoulders
I don't understand anything that you do

sometimes I want to die but don't worry about me ill be fine cause it's only sometimes
Sometimes I'm happy and sad at the same time but ill be fine
everything will be alright

no matter what i think it always gets back to a pointlessness that makes sense in my head
And when i try to say the way that i feel they say darling this is something you will forget

sometimes I want to die but don't worry about me ill be fine everything will be alright
Sometimes I'm happy and sad at the same time but its alright cause its only sometimes
Track Name: Who Cares? I Care.
they say your heart gets colder
yeah that it's written in the stars
i feel my heart getting colder
I'm running pretty far
they tell me oh just be yourself that'll get you pretty far
tell me how can you be yourself when you don't know who you are

oh oh oh
time please be slow
oh oh oh
it said no no no

it's pretty simple you start to see it
they say you will get over it
it's pretty sad when
when i remember you i forgot that you exist
i'm afraid to
i'm hanging onto my innocence
well ill have to do without you innocence

it sucks getting older
they say you're bound to lose your spark
and this questions always on my mind
will i still get to make my mark

oh oh oh
time leave me alone
oh oh oh
it said no no no

it's pretty simple you start to see it
they say you will get over it
it's pretty sad when
when i remember you i forgot that you exist
i'm afraid to
i'm hanging onto
onto my innocence
well i'll have to do without you innocence
well ill have to do without you innocence

what more do i have to do
what more do i have to lose
what more do i have to prove

I'm sorry for the things that i did
I'm sorry for the things that i said

it's pretty simple you start to see it
they say you will get over it
it's pretty sad when
when i remember you i forgot that you exist
i'm afraid to
i'm hanging onto
onto my innocence
well i'll have to do without you innocence
well ill have to do without you innocence
