Track Name: Sleepless
SLEEPLESS by ANNA O

I can’t descend into the quiet
The almost lifeless lull
My minds raging louder than the buzz outside my door
Wild things are waiting
The darkness fully grown
There’s no use pretending that I’m missing the show

And I’ll join the choir
Join the choir of sleepless minds
The chorus my company
We’ll sing away the night
Oh I’ll join the choir
Join the choir of sleepless minds
The chorus my company
We’ll sing away the night

The restless frustration
The deepest-seated fear
Of answering with honesty the questions night will bring
Delirious with heavy thoughts
Too deep to comprehend
Until morning light comes running to awake the world again

And I’ll join the choir
Join the choir of sleepless minds
The chorus my company
We’ll sing away the night
Oh I’ll join the choir
Join the choir of sleepless minds
The chorus my company
We’ll sing away the night
Track Name: Hibernation
HIBERNATION by ANNA O

The fire grew dim
When the winter came
The splinter settled deep under my skin

Cold and dreary, weary eyed
Waiting for retreat

Inside, inside x 2

When the winter came
Laid the trees bare
Laid the trees bare to their shame
Landslides, freezing over
Freezing over
It isn’t over no it’s just begun
Hibernation

Stillness sings
It brings the night
Silence weaves a web around me tight
Sleep come easy and dreams flood wild
Beckoning, their fierce arms stretched out

Pull me from inside, inside
From inside inside

When the winter came
Laid the trees bare
Laid the trees bare to their shame
Landslides, freezing over
Freezing over
It isn’t over no it’s just begun
Hibernation
Track Name: Gravity
GRAVITY by ANNA O

Are you running to embrace me?
Or are you running to beat me down?
Cos I can’t tell the difference half the time

And you know I can’t sit still
So can you keep my
Keep my attention for long, long enough?

Cos you’ve been talking so big
There’s no dragging my feet
I’m swimming in a sea of what could be
I’ll sink into your gravity
I know you’ll take me there
I know you’ll take me there

Do you think I’m that easy?
Or do you think I should know my place?
Do you think I should stop trying so hard?
Well it’s not working this time
I won’t let you under my skin
You’re not one of my excuses anymore

Cos you’ve been talking so big
There’s no dragging my feet
I’m swimming in a sea of what could be
I’ll sink into your gravity
I know you’ll take me there
I know you’ll take me there
Track Name: For You
FOR YOU by ANNA O

I’ve held so tight to what could be
I’ve held so tight to certainty
I’m always dreaming, chasing something new
Or fighting for control, oh I need to feel so in control

But now I’d give it up
I’d give it up
I would give it all up for you
Now I’d give it up
I’d give it up
I would give it all up for you

Cos our love, you can’t buy
You can’t trade it
It can’t be recreated
Just the scratch of your cheek against mine
Or your hand on my back
Just for that, I know

I’d give it up
I’d give it up
I would give it all up for you
Now I’d give it up
I’d give it up
I would give it all up for you

When you’re with me I know
When you’re with me I know
When you’re with me I know
Wanna lose control
Wanna lose control
Wanna lose control
When you’re with me I know
When you’re with me I know
When you’re with me I know
You make me lose control
Make me lose control
Make me lose control

Just for that, I know
I’d give it up
I’d give it up
I would give it all up for you
Now I’d give it up
I’d give it up
I would give it all up for you
Track Name: Fanfare
FANFARE by ANNA O

You, you’re magnetic
Those big eyes sparkle in the bright lights
And oh the honey pouring out of your mouth
You’re burning up
Our eyes are hungry for you’re next step
Such pure gold is oh so hard to find

And we want you
We all want you

In you fanfare
We’re all caught up in your fanfare
And your fortune
We’re your biggest fans
Oh you’re so fortunate

But you, you’re so cold
Those sad eyes dampen in the night light
Wondering when you can fall apart
And you’ve been talking sweet
But you’re just wasting time
You don’t really know
Where you’ve got to go

And we want you
We all want you

In you fanfare
We’re all caught up in your fanfare
And your fortune
We’re your biggest fans
Oh you’re so fortunate

We’re dying to know
We’re dying to know
We’re dying to know
We’re dying to know who you are
We’re dying to know
We’re dying to know who you are

In you fanfare
We’re all caught up in your fanfare
And your fortune
We’re your biggest fans
Oh you’re so fortunate
