Beautiful girls always have it so easy Beautiful girls don't know what it means to be sad Beautiful girls never need to spend money Beautiful girls only look prettier when they're mad Beautiful girls are never gonna be lonely Beautiful girls are always first in line Beautiful girls don't even have to be friendly Beautiful girls are always on your mind Oh, how I'd love to be a beautiful girl instead of me Beautiful girls always get what they need Beautiful girls never have to try Beautiful girls always get the attention Until another beautiful girl walks by Standing next to beauty can feel Like you don't deserve to be real Nobody can see you there Sinking in the shadow of despair Oh, how I'd love to be a beautiful girl instead of me Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful girls Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful girls

Sundown 02:59
I've got eyes sharp like Laserbeams, baby I can see straight right Through to your dreams No, you can't hide nothing from me You've got lips shaped like Cherry bomb dynamite You might think I won't See that spark light You can't hide nothing from me But when the sun goes down again You're gonna give it away And when the sun goes down again You're gonna give it away Play my number you Clever baby, you Make my tongue twist through Every letter You can have what you need Yeah, you can have what you need Side to side we can Move like this Step it forward Give me a kiss Yeah you can have what you need But when the sun goes down again You're gonna give it away And when the sun goes down again You're gonna give it away

STFU 03:43
Hey I got your message today I can see I've upset you For telling it how it is There comes a time When we must look at ourselves Objectively, completely From an outside point of view You ask me how I feel but I know you don't wanna know Tell me what to think and why I should think it Everyone's a fool if they're not like you You buy me a drink but I know I shouldn't drink it Girl I saw your words on my wall I can see that you need to Let the whole world know That you are right and you Without fail always are Educated, complicated From the tough life that you've led You ask me how I feel but I know you don't wanna know Tell me what to think and why I should think it Everyone's a fool if they're not like you You buy me a drink but I know I shouldn't drink it I don't trust what you're selling I don't trust who you are I don't think that you know I've had enough of the Things you shove down my throat S.T.F.U. You ask me how I feel but I know you don't wanna know Tell me what to think and why I should think it Everyone's a fool if they're not like you You buy me a drink but I know I shouldn't drink it You ask me how I feel but I know you don't wanna know Tell me what to think and why I should think it Everyone's a fool if they're not like you You buy me a drink but I know I shouldn't drink it

Dive 04:19
When the time is right I can feel it in the air There's a flickering of the light Tell me not to stare I can feel it I can't hide it You know, you know, you know just why it Sends me spinning It's the real thing I don't care if they think we're sinning You're the only one That knew how to hold Not the trigger nor the gun Never one to scold I can feel it I can't hide it You know, you know, you know just why it Sends me spinning It's the real thing I don't care if they think we're sinning Take my hand Jump with me Close your eyes Fall deeply It's a wonder going under The fall can be deafening like thunder Dive with me now Dive with me now When the air is still And the mood is dark Like a firefly you are An electric spark I can feel it I can't hide it You know, you know, you know just why it Sends me spinning It's the real thing I don't care if they think we're sinning Take my hand Jump with me Close your eyes Fall deeply It's a wonder going under The fall can be deafening like thunder Dive with me now Dive with me now There's a fluttering feeling when you go down Like you're flying through the ceiling Dive with me now Dive with me now Dive with me now
