We get in your car and drive away
Miles of small talk
You can feel the tension building up
Two strangers on a mission
It’s only been a few days since we met
But there’s something about us
I can’t explain

You came into my life so suddenly
Like summer rain out of a blue sky
Ordinary was all I knew
You turn my days into mystery
So far away from my misery

You’re so addictive
I can't stop
You’re so seductive
I can't stop
Almost destructive
I can't stop
I'll take my chances
'Cause I can't stop

Our worlds collide
I’ll take this ride
Bet my life on you
Wolf in disguise
Our worlds collide
I’ll take this ride
Bet my life on you
My paradise

You’re so addictive
I wanna taste your poison
Sweet poison
You’re so seductive
I wanna feel your touch
Sweet touch

Everything I thought I knew
‘Bout pretty boys and pretty girls
Was nothing like this crazy ride
I feel the danger creeping up on me
I feel your breath so close to me
Oh, what you do to me!

You’re so addictive
I can't stop
You’re so seductive
I can't stop
Almost destructive
I can't stop
I'll take my chances
'Cause I can't stop

Our worlds collide
I’ll take this ride
Bet my life on you
Wolf in disguise
Our worlds collide
I’ll take this ride
Bet my life on you
My paradise

Wolf in disguise

In your own way you showed me how
And I believed in all your lies
It was hard not to fall for you
Blinded by the sight of love
Everything about you was such a view

The way you touched me but then walked away
Made me wonder why I’m still around
But you come back with that pretty smile
Turn darkness to light
I thought we were fine

I was loving for both of us
We were such a mess
Oh, I should’ve guessed

You were never there
There was never us
There was just you
Playing your own song
Oh, I should’ve known
You were just a boy
Riding on your own

I meet you downstairs
You’re too busy with some other girl
Don’t know why you need to act like you know it all
I talk to you and it’s like we never were
It’s all just a blur
And I realize

You were never there
There was never us
There was just you
Playing your own song
Oh, I should’ve known
You were just a boy
Riding on your own

Thought I knew you
I was so naive
Thinking you could change
I missed all the signs
Blinded by your lies
Walking with a stranger
Wrapped around your finger
This one’s on me
‘Cause I couldn’t see

You were never there
There was never us
There was just you
Playing your own song
Oh, I should’ve known
You were just a boy
Riding on your own

Chemistry disappears
When only one commits
I leave the driver’s seat
So change can take the lead
I guess the table’s turned
I’ll play my own song

You were never there
There was never us
There was just you
Playing your own song
Oh, I should’ve known
You were just a boy
Who’d end up alone

My own song

I mastered the art of struggling
I try but I can't fake it
I know these feelings
As they keep taking over
I keep on kneeling
In front of them

These thoughts rushing through my mind
Sometimes make me scared
Losing control of who I am
Scattered pieces on the floor
It's hard to get
Why they keep taking over
And I keep on kneeling
In front of them
I can't pretend

But not tonight
Tonight I am in control
And it feels so right
Come roll with me
Let's make life happen tonight
Come roll with me
Let's make this right
Oh, so right!
So come roll with me

Life can at times seem unfair
No matter what we do we end up in crooked roads
Paved with shattered pieces of ourselves
Searching for the right path can take it's toll
It's hard to break free from our own ghosts
Oh, I know

But not tonight
Tonight I am in control
And it feels so right
Come roll with me
Let's make life happen tonight
Come roll with me
Let's make this right
Oh, so right!
So come roll with me

Open the curtains
The spotlights can't blind me anymore
They're not moving on their on
Cause now I know I'm not alone
I run the show

So tonight
I'm in control
And it feels so right
Come roll with me
Let's make life happen tonight
Come roll with me
Together we can shine so bright
Oh! So bright!
Come roll with me

Roll with me

It’s been two years since i saw you
Time has a way of slowing down when you’re not around
I am back in town
Back where it all happened
These streets still look the same

You had just moved here when we met
I knew this place like the palm of my hand
I showed you my favorite places, my secret sunsets
Everything was as it should be
Until you came and changed it all

Do you remember when we kissed under the stars? (I do!)
Do you remember when we danced ‘til the dawn? (I do!)
Do you remember why we drifted apart? (I do!)
Do you remember leaving scars? (On us!)

Every memory comes flooding back
Your kiss, your touch, your love
I could never get enough
I shared with you my deepest secrets
All of my foolish dreams
You said you loved me
We were just nineteen
When life came in between

I moved overseas made a life of my own
But never found that someone
Oh Baby, I should have known
I’d end up in a hidden castle
Watching the sunset alone
‘Cause no one could ever replace you
I’m stuck with all of our memories
And there’s nothing I can do

Do you remember when we kissed under the stars? (I do!)
Do you remember when we danced ‘til the dawn? (I do!)
Do you remember why we drifted apart? (I do!)
Do you remember leaving scars? (On us!)

I park by the old bar
Where we used to meet
Rain’s pouring down, late at night
I didn’t think you’d be here tonight
You get in my car and we start to talk
Your voice, so familiar
All I want is to be near
Your walls are up, I tear them down
Your body is like a timeless song
I couldn’t listen for so long

Do you remember when we kissed under the stars? (I do!)
Do you remember when we danced ‘til the dawn? (I do!)
Fate said we should be together (Somehow!)
So here I am staring at our forever (Right now!)

Do you remember?

I heard someone downstairs
He sounded just like you
Last time we met you came to say goodbye
Now I refuse to believe
That everything is fine

I catch a glimpse of life without you
I get scared 'cause you were all I knew
I am terrified of an empty road
Caught up in your undertow
But I know

I'm gonna learn to let you go
Even if it hurts me so
'Cause you hurt me so
Life with you was black and white
I can't stand another fight
I'm gonna stick with your goodbye
All our memories fade away
Like our footprints in the sand
And now I can't understand
I miss how you held my hand

You were everything I knew
Now I am left with empty rooms
It's like we were doomed from the start
But I still keep you in my heart
You were the calm before the storm
All our roses came with thorns
And I know

I'm gonna learn to let you go
Even if it hurts me so
'Cause you hurt me so
Life with you was black and white
I can't stand another fight
I'm gonna stick with your goodbye
All our memories fade away
Like our footprints in the sand
And now I can't understand
I miss how you held my hand

A castle built on lies
Dark clouds rolling in
While I watched you leave
But dark skies turn into blue skies
Even if it takes time
And I know

I'm gonna learn to let you go
Even if it hurts me so
'Cause you hurt me so
Life with you was black and white
I can't stand another fight
I'm gonna stick with your goodbye
All our memories fade away
Like our footprints in the sand
And now I can't understand
I miss how you held my hand

Learn to let you go

You look at me like there's no one around
I look away trying not to let them figure out
So close to you, yet so far
We need to stay away and that's hard enough
Clocks ticking slower than usual
You whisper in my ear that you need me near

I'll leave the door unlocked
Can you be here right now?
I hear your steps, what's next?
You're standing by my door
My room is dark
Moonlight lighting up the sky

So come close now
'Cause I need you so
Yeah! I need you so
My feet off the ground
'Cause now you're around
Come close now
Yeah! I need you so
It's not hard to see
Where I need to be

It feels like a game I don't wanna play
I roll the dice
I am willing to pay the price
For doing it my way

When our bodies meet
We can feel the heat
And every heartbeat
Makes me want to stay

So come close now
'Cause I need you so
Yeah! I need you so
My feet off the ground
'Cause now you're around
Come close now
Yeah! I need you so
It's not hard to see
Where I long to be

Baby come close
'Cause you need me so
Moonlight shining bright
Lighting up the sky

So come close now
'Cause I need you so
Yeah! I need you so
Never let me go

Come close now
Yeah! I need you so
Baby can't you see
Where I need to be?

I'll leave the door unlocked
Can you be here right now?

Come close now

It was warm when I first saw you
By the beach you were with your friends
Tanned skin, dark eyes, salty hair
I watched you as the sun went down
Caught that wave like you stole my heart

It was warm when we first talked
On that sidewalk we walked down the block
You took my hand and the whole world stopped
In an ocean of possibilities
The first kiss made everything clear

You were a hurricane
Took me by surprise
It happened so fast
Can we make it last?
Under the sunset
Waves brought you in
So I could call you mine

Tanned skin, dark eyes, salty hair, sweet smile
Spending summer nights under a starry sky
Your lips touched my skin like a warm breeze
(Made me feel at ease)
I watched you as the sun came up
Caught that wave like you stole my heart
Waves were crashing down
And I knew right there

You were a hurricane
Took me by surprise
It happened so fast
Can we make it last?
Under the sunset
Waves brought you in
So I could call you mine

Sun kissed skin
Sweet smile
Caught that wave like you stole my heart
And I knew right there

You were a hurricane
Took me by surprise
It happened so fast
Will we make it last?
Under the sunrise
Waves brought you in
Now I know you are mine

By the beach
Where we first met
Waves were crashing down
The first kiss made it all so clear
