Track Name: 6:00/Time Machine
TIME MACHINE
Lyrics by Jakki Jelene

Girl feeling blue
What in the world are you going to do?
Can you rewind all the years that you knew?
Take back the hurt
Make the heartache all through
Put on the girls face a happier hue
Stand up and fight, this is your night to

Fly the time machine
Recreate the dream
Like you’ve never seen
Love will start to grow
Forget the pain you know

Tears that were cried
You are the reason her love for you died
Swallow your pride somehow turn back the tide
Turn out the light, take it to a new height and

Fly the time machine
Recreate the dream
Like you’ve never seen
Love will start to grow
Forget the pain you know
Track Name: Day Dreaming
DAY DREAMING
Lyrics by Jakki Jelene

I’ve seen his face this time isn’t the first
With every beat my heart ready to burst
Just past the border our ecstasy lies
Burning with passion, feel temperature rise
Closing my eyes, feel your breath on my skin
Living this day dream head starts to spin

Day dreaming, day dreaming
Day dreaming away my days

Summer sky blazing, sun on my face
You here beside me, my pulse begins to race
All that is perfect, I never knew
Is in the moment I’m spending with you
Just as the day ends you can’t be found
Wake up I’m empty, you’re not around

Day dreaming, day dreaming
Day dreaming away my days

Flying, I’m crossing the heavens and trying
To get to the place you are hiding
Where I’m day dreaming, day dreaming
Day dreaming away my days
Track Name: Goodbye To Us
GOODBYE TO US
Lyrics by Jakki Jelene

I remember as a child I spent my nights thinking of you
I would go to bed and pray that someday I could be with you

And I would be the one to wait
For time to bring us to the fate
I believed in us

But I grew up and still no you beside me, who lied to me?
How is it that I would ever feel the love that I dreamed of?

Cause time could never heal these wounds
And hurt would only come my way
My quest for love was bound to fail
No chance for love to ever stay in my house of pain

The love I thought we shared was never really there
Cause you found better things to do
No more for childhood days and hearts at play
You found another girl to fall into

So I grew up and still no you besides me, who lied to me?
How is it that I would ever feel the love that I dreamed of?

No longer will I sit and wait
For time to bring us to the fate
Goodbye to us
Track Name: You Will Never See
YOU WILL NEVER SEE
Lyrics by Jakki Jelene

I am so ashamed dear, you’ve stolen my pride
All you did was sit there every time I cried
You will never see me hurt
You will never see my sorrow

I am so afraid here, no reasons to stay
Since there is no love here you will get your way
And you will never see me hurt
You will never see my sorrow

Time is running out so, I think I will go
From your lack of effort, through this you will know
That you will never see me hurt
You will never see my sorrow
Track Name: A Door & A Window
A DOOR & A WINDOW
Lyrics by Jakki Jelene

A door and a window they are locked tight
No one can get inside this heart of mine
Close the curtains to keep out the light
Pain is all I’ve ever known in this life

When I was young and I was unjaded love had its own certain charm
Now that I’m older my heart has faded and love can only do harm

A door and a window they are locked tight
Break out the wine and set me free tonight
They say the care and I know that they tried
But every time I turn my back they run and hide

When I was young and I was so naïve I let love in on a whim
I gave up hope when they gave up trying now all my trust has worn thin

What is the use in believing its truth when all that I get is to cry?
I don’t believe in what I am seeing, no matter how hard you try
I wont give into a lie

A door and a window they are locked tight
Every hope I have for love is out of sight
The dreams that I once had I some how lost
Now all that’s left inside me is a heart of frost

When I was young and I was unjaded love had its own certain charm
Now that I’m older my heart has faded and love can only do harm

What is the use in believing its truth when all that I get is to cry?
I don’t believe in what I am seeing, no matter how hard you try
I wont give into a lie

A door and a window they are locked tight
Track Name: I Don't Know Why
I DON’T KNOW WHY
Lyrics by Jakki Jelene

I loved him deeply
I loved him higher than the sky
I loved him madly
And oh I don’t know why

He had a smile
And had the heavens in his eyes
I loved him crazy
And oh I don’t know why

The day we fell in love I swore
I’d never felt like that before
He brought me sunshine, he brought me rain
I’ll never feel like that again, like that again

We had our problems
Where he would yell and I would cry
He had to leave me
And oh I don’t know why

The day we fell in love I swore
I’d never felt like that before
He brought me sunshine, he brought me rain
I’ll never feel like that again, like that again

I loved him deeply
I loved him higher than the sky
I loved him madly
And oh I don’t know why
Track Name: Underneath The Moonlight
UNDERNEATH THE MOONLIGHT
Lyrics by Jakki Jelene

Driving underneath the moonlight
Moving fast across the dark night
Music is lifting and your mind is drifting away
And I know what your thoughts are
Your wants all contained in this car
Your eyes beguiling, I see you smiling at me

I want to be far away from the city
Drive so fast make it last, until the morning

People everywhere that we go
We share something they just don’t know
They just cannot reach secrets that we keep inside

I want to be far away from the city
Drive so fast make it last, until the morning
Track Name: Unrequited Love
UNREQUITED LOVE
Lyrics by Jakki Jelene

I’ve been thinking and I’m sinking down so deep
Why is it that you consume me? I can’t sleep
I’ve been stirring, tossing and turning
How come I can’t think of anyone but you, what do I do?

Every single waking hour you are here
Talking to me, walking through me, disappear!
I don’t want to think about you
I don’t need your love to keep me satisfied and warm

Unrequited love is something I do not desire
If I am going to fall in love there’s one thing I require
He must love me just as much as I do
But these thoughts they wipe away my point of view

I know you don’t want me I won’t waste my time
But I can’t help but wonder what if you were mine?
This doomed relation, broken concentration
Leads me to conclude that I must push these thoughts of you away

Unrequited love is something I do not desire
If I am going to fall in love there’s one thing I require
He must love me just as much as I do
But these thoughts they wipe away my point of view
Track Name: Lullaby
LULLABY
Lyrics by Jakki Jelene

Twelve O’clock a restless night
In my heart a glowing light
A fire that is burning bright
How I wish I had you

Dreams that tear down all my will
Lovely as a daffodil
But pain and hurt linger still
Knowing I don’t have you

Lullaby, Lullaby, Lullaby

Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray your heart I have to keep
Quietly I begin to weep
God I have to have you

Time for me to drift away
One last thing I’ve got to say
You’ll be here with me someday
I know that I will have you

Lullaby, Lullaby, Lullaby
Track Name: Regardless
REGARDLESS
Lyrics by Jakki Jelene

Break the chains that bind me down
Break them down to dust
Then lose yourself and give into
This ever-growing lust
Feel my love, feel my breath
Feel me deep inside
Feel all that I have to give
Let me be your guide

These walls are closing in my dear
Please rescue me tonight
I don’t know how much I can take
Please don’t give up the fight
I will beg, I will plead
Until you come my way
Giving every breath to you
Regardless come what may

Regardless of the life I live
There is so much more I long to give
And if you break the lock and set me free
I will vow to love you for eternity

Unwrap this gift I give to you
Do you know what it’s for?
To some it is a day of play
But for you it is so much more
See the light, burning bright

Deep inside my soul
I hope that it will last forever
But regardless it will grow (but I don’t want you to go)

Regardless of the life I lead
There is so much more I long to be
And if you break the lock and set me free
I will vow to love you for eternity
Track Name: Be Gone
BE GONE
Lyrics by Jakki Jelene

Lost by the ocean shore
You wanting so much more
I gave all that I had to give
Breaking down this life I live

Sitting here with a frozen stare
Cool sea wind blowing through our hair
Your bold hands reaching out to me
This was never meant to be
Don’t try, just say goodbye

I know that I once loved you
But what I want you to do is
Leave me here and don’t look back
What we had fell off the track
Derailed, we failed

I can not stand to lose a fight
Still I’ll stand up for what’s right
I am wanting so much more
Take your things walk out that door
So long, be gone

I need to be on my own I have learned
Take it away, leave and don’t return

I know that I once loved you
But what I want you to do is
Leave me here and don’t look back
What we had fell off the track
Derailed, we failed
Don’t try, just say goodbye
So long, be gone

Take back the hurt

Put on the girls face a happier hue

Swallow your pride somehow turn back the tide
Turn out the light, take it to a new height and

Fly the time machine
