Track Name: Melodie
I've been itching for a new wind on my face
hoping to happen upon a new taste to try
I'm tired of being told how to be, how to see things
and wondering when everything will come into focus

I'm trying to listen to my own melody

I've been whistling this new melody
I don't know if it's good but it came from me
I know what they'll say, "She just can't cut it"- and maybe that's true
but baby I won't sing any song but mine for you

I'm trying to sing my own melody
Track Name: Monster in the Attic
When she's staring at the ceiling in the dark
what comes to her mind?
When daylight comes she sleepwalks, her pillow's soaked in thought
Noises upstairs she's never known

She thinks she can outwit, think it out
but it already knows all of her tricks
Before she knew it moved in, it had her figured out
it lulled her into deep sleep

Something's gotten in the attic
It's been chewing at the wiring
She has locked herself inside with it
No one else can get her out

She can see the bulb that flickers in the lamp
faltering in her wake
She tries to be the brightness the lamp cannot maintain
Uncomfortable eyes from all around

Though she's curtained all the windows to the sun
she can't help but take a peek or two
The thing that holds her captive-- the thing that holds her fast
it pulls her back from the light

Something's gotten in the attic
It's been chewing at the wiring
She has locked herself inside with it
No one else can get her out
Track Name: Night Music
When the crickets sing that's when I can see moons
wellsprings of a peace we'll never touch or breathe
Where the sea glows green with the songs of a thousand creatures
melodies of fish and reefs

How can I stay here on the Earth
when it's a marble cracking right down the middle?
How can I say it's all okay
when we are caving in under so much?

On the darkened coast see the lavender birds dozing
with a peace we'll never know
On the beach at night there's the humming of fruit so ripe
Don't wanna hear about real life

How can I stay here on the Earth
when it's a marble cracking right down the middle?
How can I say it's all okay
when we are caving in under so much?

When it's time to say goodnight to Earth's last day
no use thumbing through the yellowed page
As the crickets sing you and I will see moons
wellsprings of a peace we've longed to touch and to breathe

Say goodnight

How can I stay here on the Earth
when it's a marble cracking right down the middle?
How can I say it's all okay
when we are caving in under so much?

How can I stay?
Track Name: The Buffy Song
She's got her wooden stake
Nipping evil in the bud
The leader of the Scoobies reigns supreme
over the lurking terrors of night

Buffy Summers, guardian of Sunnydale
Kickin ass and taking names all night
One girl in all the world, a chosen one
She'll save the world

Got her superhuman powers
Turning all the vamps to dust
Don't need no man to come and save the day
She's no damsel in distress

Buffy Summers, guardian of Sunnydale
Kickin ass and taking names all night
One girl in all the world, a chosen one
She'll save the world

It's a little hard to take some times
feeling the weight of all those lives
but it's a burden she has learned to bear
In the face of loneliness
she will carry on and meet her destiny
for you and for me

Buffy Summers, guardian of Sunnydale
Kickin ass and taking names all night
One girl in all the world, a chosen one
She'll save the world
