Lyrics

The Glass

Written By: Julia Drawbell-Robbie Robbins

I said that I was going to make it on my own in this world
You told me in order to do that
I’d have to come to terms with the demons I have earned

And I know how the story goes

Listen to what I say to you
Before to long it will all ring true
Life has some twisted ways and believe me now it won’t seem fair to you
Life gives you just one chance to decide how you’re going to see it through
Is the glass empty or is it full

I said that you could guide me in my time of woo
You told me in order to do that
I’d have to take you deep within my soul

And I know how the story goes

Listen to what I say to you
Before to long it will all ring true
Life has some twisted ways and believe me now it won’t seem fair to you
Life gives you just one chance to decide how you’re going to see it through
Is the glass empty or is it full

Try love Again

Written By: Rob Robbins/Michael Nagy

I paid the price for fooling around
I must have been crazy
The love that we had I tell you right now
Was the only one for me
Some changes have come and now I've begun
To see things more clearly

See you standing there
I want to know
Do you want to Try Love Again?
Cause I’m ready yes I’m ready
To Try Love Again
Tell me, Do You? Don’t you?
Do you want to Try Love Again?

I’ve suffered those days and
I’ve changed my ways
The loves inside me
I’m playing a part but I need your heart and
You right beside me

I hope you can hear me now
I want to know
Do you want to Try Love Again?
Cause I’m ready yes I’m ready
To Try Love Again
Tell me, Do You? Don’t you?
Do you want to Try Love Again?

Entangled

Written By: Rob Robbins/Dean Young

Thinking of the years
Confronting all my fears
What surrounds me
Would flat out drown me
With the thought of losing you

I think you should should know

I know where I should be
I know the feeling's deep inside me
Always here to guide me
Always here beside me
When I'm losing control going crazy

I think you should know

The world is turning slow
When were all alone
And I'm entangled by you love
Our love is growing strong
You know it won't be long
Till I'm entangled by your love
X2

Solo

The world is turning slow
When were all alone
And I'm entangled by you love
Our love is growing strong
You know it won't be long
Till I'm entangled by your love

The Division Of Love

Written By: Robert Robbins,Dean Young

Close your eyes think of me
Love is blind baby can't you see
I've traveled the world and I always see
The division of love and what it leaves

Where are you my beautiful friend?
If you stay what's going to happen then?
Holding on to what I think I see
Stay and help me solve this mystery

This love ain't what it's supposed to be
You took the very best part of me
Looking right through you why can't I see?
I feel you but your not close to me
It's The Division Of Love

A star still shines in a blue sky
The time rolls on and you wonder why
The distance grows between you and I
I'm moving on I won't live a lie
