"Starlit Moon" by Mike Peralta When I said that you were beautiful, I meant whole lot more than that. And when you said that I was wonderful, I didn't see you holding back. Well maybe you were bored, or this is what you do. But I hate, but I hate the way you look at me. Like a whim, I could only be one night. And I hate, and I hate your starlit moon tonight. I can see it can tell that I'm a fool. I should've guessed it yesterday. You would've called back long before. And now I saw you at the cafe with someone else you don't adore. And as I left you smiled, as if you still had me. But I hate, but I hate the way you look at me. Like a whim, I could only be one night. And I hate, and I hate your starlit moon tonight. I can see it can tell that I'm a fool. And now that it is understood, it isn't long before you call again. Well maybe its for real this time. Do I want to try again? Maybe I'm a fool, but either way I do. But I hate, but I hate the way you look at me. Like a whim, I could only be one night. And I hate, and I hate your starlit moon tonight. I can see it can tell that I'm a fool.

"Bet You'd Forget" by Mike Peralta Sorry to hide this side of me. One day I will show you all my dreams. If you look by the frozen trees, you can always remember me. But I bet you'd forget, when I go. I think that I would like to fly. You could always make me beam. And past the smile, beneath my eyes, I wonder if you can see me scream. But I bet you'd forget, when I go. Oh there is too much to learn in just an hour. I wonder where you are, on this hour. Please don't think that I'm a coward. Where will I be in just an hour? Sorry to hide this side of me. One day I will show you all my dreams. If you look by the frozen trees, you can always remember me. But I bet you'd forget, when I go.

"I Will Always Love You" by Mike Peralta Just a smile can hurt so much, when your heart is so sad. EVerything is beautiful, when your heart has turned black. Watch me slowly sink off step, till theres really nothing left. It will never be the same, if I ever get back. And I will always love you. And I will always love you. Softly weeping to my god, why did it have to be you? And I will always love you. And I wish this all a dream, looking up at the stars. I wonder what you're doing now, wherever ever you are. And I will always love you. And I will always love you. Tonight I know in my heart its best, if, I never ever see you again. And I will always love you.

"See You Again" by Mike Peralta Bounce, better to stop than add 45 pouts in here, with hearts hanging at the door. With the look of non-eyes, excusing at my sores, and go from your room with 45 feelings outside. Maybe I'll lose you in friends. Maybe I'll run off instead. Maybe I'll let us make amends. Maybe I'll see you again. A sound, if ever this loud would fly 45,000 miles, from bells ringing at the door. With the look in my eyes, if ever seen before. And go from your room, in 4 or 5 minutes I'll die. Maybe I'll lose you in friends. Maybe I'll run off instead. Maybe I'll let us make amends. Maybe I'll see you again. Bounce, better to stop than add 45 pouts in here, with hearts hanging at the door. With the look of non-eyes, excusing at my sours, and go from your room with 45 feelings outside. Maybe I'll lose you in friends. Maybe I'll run off instead. Maybe I'll let us make amends. Maybe I'll see you again. Maybe I'll see you again. Maybe I'll see you again. Maybe I'll see you again. Maybe I'll see you again.

"I Heard" by Mike Peralta Today I wrote a song for you. Tonight I'll dream I'm in your arms. And then I'll feel like I could die. What did I do so wrong? I heard that you didn't smile at my name. It hurts to think of your gentle face. I heard you told someone else to call you, instead of me. Once you let me kiss your lips. I'd do anything for you. You're the only one I want. Once you only smiled for me. I heard that you didn't smile at my name. It hurts to think of your gentle face. I heard you told someone else to call you, instead of me.

"Eyes Me Slow" by Mike Peralta Do they know why I won't want to party tonight? I lean on the wall and sit watching all of them go. Around the corner, where all their faces talk, I see her there and then without thinking I know. She eyes me slow, then turns away. I love her so. She'll go away. And there is no other that could mean anything. And I have to wonder will she remember me? But she can't see, I know she'll make it end. And does she know she will get bored of me? She eyes me slow, then turns away. I love her so. She'll go away. And I wish she would know she could keep me in. She eyes me slow, then turns away. I love her so. She'll go away.

"New Girlfriend" by Mike Peralta Saw you on the street and didn't wave right back to you. Took another sweet down to the place we used to meet. And I was not the one who's wrong, and I am not the one who's wrong. But now I'm not the one alone. I threw your pictures out the car window. Fuck You, I've got a new girlfriend. And I will never love someone as true as I had used to you, even if that girl is you again, you fucking whore. Saw you at the local store. Laughed at you tripping out the door. Having such a perfect day in these worn out pants you used to hate. Fuck You, I've got a new girlfriend. You can suck a big gigantic dick. I've got a new girlfriend. Fuck You.

"Ugly" by Mike Peralta Sitting in my room again. Try to find the problem's end. I could fly away and scratch the sun, and only end up here again. Tearing our skin off, but there's nothing gone. What is meant to be? What is wrong with me? And I don't want to understand. That won't stop it coming back. Power in your eyes to melt these chains. To Tunnel through the earth and back. Four hours of silence, then, we moaned and flew like light. Forever and a day in constant waste, until the lord has gone insane. Running past depraving night, through the sounds of dust and stench. For never will we stop, until we escape from something we cannot defined. Making history that no one will see. Painting smoke and ash on the green canvas. And I don't want to understand. That won't stop it coming back. Power in your eyes to melt these chains. To Tunnel through the earth and back. Four hours of silence, then, we moaned and flew like light. Forever and a day in constant waste, until the lord has gone insane. Sitting in my room again. Try to find the problem's end. I could fly away and scratch the sun, and only end up here again. Tearing our skin off, but there's nothing gone. What is meant to be? What is wrong with me? And I don't want to understand. That won't stop it coming back. Power in your eyes to melt these chains. To Tunnel through the earth and back. Four hours of silence, then, we moaned and flew like light. Forever and a day in constant waste, until the lord has gone insane.

"Anytime" by Mike Peralta If I could be sorry for every little thing, would you throw it all away and stay? If I could be gentle and make it seem alright, would you think before you said goodbye? I don't want you to go but you are leaving today. And I want you to know that I'll be waiting for you. Anytime How will we feel inside when its done and you're not mine? Baby I don't want to know. And this will be the night that we always have inside. I knew I'd have to let you go. I don't want you to go but you are leaving today. And I want you to know that I will always be here. Anytime

"She Wants Me" by Mike Peralta She wants me to stay. I'd have to show my face. She wants to go out. I'd have to lose my shell. I'd have to tell her what a hug can mean to me. When she kisses me she'd ask to know what I'm thinking. She wants me. She needs me. I've never felt so unhappy before. She loves me, she told me. I just don't think I'm good enough for her. Oh she's such a fantasy. She makes me fall apart. If we talked she'd see that I am not very interesting. If I said I loved her and told her everything, would that guarantee she wouldn't break my heart? She wants me. She needs me. I've never felt so unhappy before. She loves me, she told me. I just don't think I'm good enough for her. And I could tell her all my dreams, but would she ever understand? I know I should go ahead and open up to her, but if I do, I know I'll only be misunderstood. She wants me. She needs me. I've never felt so unhappy before. She loves me, she told me. I just don't think I'm good enough for her.

"Wasting All My Time" by Mike Peralta I was so spun around in a dream I had for you. You didn't feel the same. I can see that all now. And though your eyes would fall down, when I went to touch your face, I wouldn't trade it all away for a singe other place. And with my eyes on you, your mind is not on me. Wasting all my time. Wasting all my time, with you. You were smiling on the sand as I stumbled up to you. You were so beautiful. I was so late I made you mad. When I look back now, to those times I had with you, Though I'm hurting now, I'd still do anything for you. And with my eyes on you, your mind is not on me. Wasting all my time. Wasting all my time, with you. And the waves go crashing by. And you are my life.

"My Mind" by Mike Peralta I hope you know I think of you as friends. You know I'd always come around for you. You bring such light to me here in the dark. You bring such fun to everything I do. But if I ever lose my mind throw away the key for me. I'm not about to say I'd want your help out of there. I hope that soon I lose my mind. I pray to lose my mind. It is so cold out here, that I can feel the warmth in there. I'd like to smile just like the TV stars. Instead of not belonging anywhere. The days and nights are spent in hopes and care. It's going to be awhile, but soon I'm there. But if I ever lose my mind throw away the key for me. I'm not about to say I'd want your help out of there. I hope that soon I lose my mind. I pray to lose my mind. It is so cold out here, that I can feel the warmth in there. I'm not afraid to say I'm never going to see you again. So sad that though I tried, I'm never going to see her again. So I'm not afraid to say I'm never going to see you again. I hope you know I think of you as friends. You know I'd always come around for you. You bring such light to me here in the dark. You bring such fun to everything I do. But if I ever lose my mind throw away the key for me. I'm not about to say I'd want your help out of there. I hope that soon I lose my mind. I pray to lose my mind. It is so cold out here, that I can feel the warmth in there. I'm not afraid to say I'm never going to see you again. So sad that though I tried, I'm never going to see her again. So I'm not afraid to say I'm never going to see you again. See you again.
