Track Name: Rainbow
Rainbow
Victoria Scott/Alfonso Rodenas

Verse
You follow your muses
Til they get you into trouble
Anyway you believe in love
And I’ve helped you up off the floor
When you felt so blue
When you felt so raw


Chorus
I believe if I followed the rainbow
At the end of it I would find you
There ain’t a color in the rainbow
That dosen’t suit you
That dosen’t suit you

Verse
Then the storm cloud breaks
Your heart no longer aches
You’re riding high in the sky
With that wide cat smile
Oh what a joy
Oh what a trial

Chorus
I believe if I followed the rainbow
At the end of it I would find you
There ain’t a color in the rainbow
That dosen’t suit you
That dosen’t suit you

Bridge
You slip between worlds
Bring back water pearls
Places I’ve never seen
The highs and the lows

Repeat Chorus
Track Name: Is This It
Is this it ?
Victoria Scott

Verse
Is this the end of the world
This fathomless mystery unfurled?
Can our imaginations find a way
Beautiful people, living in a beautiful way

Chorus
I hope that we can find a way
I hope that we can find a way
I hope that we won’t hesitate
I hope that we won’t wake too late

Verse
The way is within, what do you say ?
And the wings of love keep flying anyway
Can our ingenuity find the key
For us to live peacefully

Chorus
I’m sure that we can find a way
I’m sure that we can find a way
I’m sure that we won’t hesitate
I’m sure that we won’t wake too late

Bridge
Monster gories, Horror stories
So many people afraid
Well I know if I’ve only got one day
I’m gonna let it shine

Chorus
I know that we can find a way
I know that we can find a way
I know that we won’t hesitate
I know that we won’t wake too late
Track Name: Driving
Driving
Victoria Scott/Alfonso Rodenas

Chorus
Driving with you
In this good mood
Driving with you
La, la, la,

Verse
We can drive to Mexico
Even further to Brazil
Even though it won’t last
We can say we had a blast
If we have cash for one day
I’m so happy living this way

Chorus
Driving with you
In this good mood
Driving with you
La, la, la,

Verse
See old ladies walking slow
Older men watch the show
Strangers in a new land
See the things that we could have
Exotic lands of the heart
We can make brand new start

Chorus
Driving with you
In this good mood
Driving with you
La, la, la,
Track Name: Let Love

Verse
I used to think that I knew life
So many stones unturned
The secret is free
It’s inside you and me
And I’ll tell you what I’ve learned

Chorus
Let go , Let Love
Let go, Let Love
Make a miracle for you
It’ll happen when you do
If you believe
That it’s true

Verse
All that it takes is trust and faith
No need to wonder why
The reason and rhyme,
You’ll find it time
So why not give it a try

Chorus
Let go , Let Love
Let go, Let Love
Make a miracle for you
It’ll happen when you do
If you believe
That it’s true

Bridge
All is forgiven
We’re putting the past to rest
Now its time to start livin’
Soon we’ll be feeling blessed

Chorus
Let go , Let Love
Let go, Let Love
Make a miracle for you
It’ll happen when you do
If you believe
That it’s true
Track Name: Won't Give In
Won’t Give In
Victoria Scott

Verse
I won’t give in
I won’t let this lie
I’m going to settle this score
Yeh I’m going to settle this score

Chorus
Whatever you say can’t get me down
Gonna shoot my arrows at the sun
Stand in the heat of the tiger’s eye
I can’t let this dream die
I won’t give up

Verse
Your “So what?”
Seems to take everything I got
You say I ain’t got what it takes
And I started too late

Whatever you say can’t get me down
Gonna shoot my arrows at the sun
Stand in the heat of the tiger’s eye
I can’t let this dream die
I won’t give up

Verse
I don’t need anybodies fear
And I keep marching here
I won’t forget this scream
And I won’t forgive this machine

Chorus
Whatever you say can’t get me down
I’m gonna shoot my arrows at the sun
Stand in the heat of the tiger’s eye
But I won’t rest till I die
Whatever you say, whatever you do
I’m going to keep on trying to break on through
Go to the country spread my seed
I’m going to live in a way that I believe
I won’t give up
No I won’t give in
Track Name: Maybe Leaving
Maybe leaving
Victoria Scott/Alfonso Rodenas

Verse
If you were, if you were
Made to go away
And we were apart
My heart would ache, dreams would shake
A thousand times
If you had to go

Prechorus
Of all the people I have known
You’re the one who feels like home
The man I couldn’t
Be without

Verse
You’re the one I see when I first open up my eyes
The one I hold when I lay awake

Prechorus
Of all the men that I have known
It’s you’re soul that fits my own
A man I couldn’t try
To live without

Chorus
We really can’t say
What lies a head
We really don’t know
How much time we’ve left
We really can’t say
Won’t you dance with me
We really don’t know
What lies ahead
What lies ahead



Verse
You’re the one I tell all my troubles too
Over and again
And you’re the one who can
Break down this wall
If you were, if you were made to go away
And we were apart

Prechorus
Of all the lovers I have known
It’s your eyes that seek my own
Stars are falling
Baby you’re the one

Chorus
We really can’t say
What lies a head
We really don’t know
How much time we’ve left
We really can’t say
Won’t you dance with me
We really don’t know
Won’t you fly with me
What lies ahead
What lies ahead
What lies ahead
Track Name: All I Ever Wanted
All I ever wanted
Victoria Scott/Alfonso Rodenas

Verse
All I ever wanted was to have my say
All I ever wanted was to walk my way
All my dreams are coming true
Today
All I ever wanted was to dance on high
All I ever wanted to was to kiss the sky
Everything I ever hoped for is turning round
Today


Chorus
Today
Is the first day of the rest of my life
Today
Is the first time I’m going to live it right

Verse
We’ve been friends now for quite a while
We’ve been building castles in the sky
Thought we saw eye to eye ,but I was wrong
I was vulnerable and you found the key
Leading me round like you owned my destiny

Chorus
Today
Is the first day of the rest of my life
Today
Is the first time I’m going to live it right

Bridge
You ripped out my heart
And you threw it on the floor
And after you kicked it ,
You kicked it some more

Verse
Got nothing in my pocket
Blue skies ahead
Don’t know the future
But I know it’s not dead



Chorus
Today
Is the first day of the rest of my life
Today
Is the first time I’m going to live it right
Track Name: I Left You
I Left You
Victoria Scott

Verse
I left you without saying goodbye
I left you without telling you why
And I know there’s a hole in my soul
Where you used to be
Would it help you if I told you
I just needed to be free

Chorus
I’m sorry, let it make a difference
Please just let the past be the past
I’m sorry, now let the shadows fall
And we can start over again

Verse
I thought you’d never let me go
I was scared of letting the truth show
And I know that you didn’t mean to wear me down
But I needed to know how to loose this cloud

Chorus
I’m sorry, let it make a difference
Please just let the past be the past
I’m sorry now let the shadows fall
And we can start over again

Bridge
I didn’t even have a chance to say
How much you meant to me
You were holding on so tightly
I just pushed you away

Chorus
I’m sorry , let it make a difference
Please just let the past be the past
I’m sorry now let the shadows fall
And we can start over again

Verse
And I know there’s a hole in my soul
Where you used to be
Would it help you if I told you
I just needed to be free

Lover, Lover

Lover, Lover
Do you hear what I’m sayin’
I am calling you to come through
My little window pain

Cos I can’t seem to see you
In my dreams, no not at all

Find you’re way

Find your pearls
Amongst the starfish and the seaweed
I see you’re spirit
Struggling with your mortality
Well I hope you find a way
To set your self free
To set your self free

But the sun breaks them up
Dark skies are out there
But the sun breaks them up

Nothing to do on this ship- wreck with the eels
I’m gonna hitch a ride with a submarine
Find the surface again
Start over again

But the sun breaks them up
Dark skies are out there
But the sun breaks them up
Chorus
I hope you find your way
I hope you find your way

When I’m sitting
With you deep into the night
Feels so good
Feel so right

You build a bridge straight to my heart
Everything I missed
Never seen before
Suddenly it’s right before my eyes

And everything I’ve feared gonna melt it down

Now or Never
Victoria Scott/Alfonso Rodenas

Verse
I’ve cut my heart open
And it’s blowin in the wind
Free wheelin like I’m on a
Harley Davidson
Cut like a knife
Let it bleed, let it go
I’m free yeh
And there’s no other place to go

Prechorus
Gotta brace those waves
Feel the fear
Its now or never baby
Time is here

CHORUS
I’ve been wondering about this and that
Dragging my feet and looking back
Spending time like I’m a time millionaire
Breathing like I don’t even need air

Verse
My military complex shield
Has all broken down
And I can’t go on pretending
Or wearing this fools crown
There’s a break in the sky
And I slip through the needle and I can fly

Prechorus
Gotta brace those waves
Feel the fear
Its now or never baby
Time is here

CHORUS
I’ve been wondering about this and that
Dragging my feet and looking back
Spending time like I’m a time millionaire
Breathing like I don’t even need air
