Track Name: Write This Down
Myles West / Amiena BMI ©2014

Waiting in my world
Finding it hard to breathe
Photographs and messages make up you and me
Missing you makes me want you more
It's slowly killing me
Join me now on this empty dance floor or set me free

Never thought this is where I'd be
Standing here waiting for you to see
Go ahead and write this down "funny how life turns out, you're mine"

You're sitting in your world
Do you ever think of me while you're driving in your car listening to the songs I sing
I'm not asking for forever only want you here and now
You can be my puppeteer yet, my strings are wearing out.

Let's stop this back and forth
No need to move too fast
This doesn't change the fact
That you're all I'm looking for
Track Name: 8281 Miles
8281 Miles

You say that you want me
You say that it's complicated
I tell you I love [need] you here's my heart
You say that I'm simple
Maybe you're right who know
3 Cheers to those who keep it real

8281 miles just to be with you
I'd travel the desert, the valleys the oceans
If it meant I'd be near you [that's what I would do]

Enchant me in Paris then tell me what we've done is wrong
When was the last time the passion burned like this
I see it in your eyes with everything that you touch
Why try to fight what is real

Reviewing your kisses on me
Leaving me craving [wanting] more
The promises that you made
Was this just a dream

8281 miles before I see you
I can't wait to hold you
Kiss you
Love you
That's what I will do
Track Name: Moments Alone with You
Moments Alone With You
Music: Myles West
Lyrics: Amiena
BMI ©2014

Moments alone with you how I wait for them
Feeling your heart beat with mine
Leaving me breathless totally fulfilled you are my light
Here in the darkness and the sadness arms that carry me when I fall
All of the answers to my questions you are my all

Complete me - Unfold my love - That’s saved for you
These sacred moments in your arms - Carry me through

Nothing can change these feelings - Waiting here reaching for you
Turn me away and I’m left standing on my own until you come back through

Never thought I’d be so lucky to feel this real
Track Name: Drunk [on love]
Myles West / Amiena BMI ©2014

Checked out of reality
Thought that you and I could be
Erased all those in your world just for me
I could live a life with you seven days a month doesn’t seem so cruel
Then I woke up and realised ops, I think I’m drunk –

La la la la I think I’m drunk
On love

Turn me on while we’re in France
Then stand me up near your homeland [that’s not right]
Disappear for weeks on end and think that we’re still friends
I don’t know what’s on your mind but I think it’s past the time
You and I strongly admit we’re just drunk on something

Is it life in your world that scares us both
I’m here for the long haul
Try as I might to walk away
I still come back to you coz I’m drunk

I don’t know what’s on your mind mine is working overtime
Trying to understand what we’ve got going on
You are in my heart you see and its causing me to scream so many things I cannot say coz I’m drunk
Track Name: Still in Love with You
Still In Love With You
Myles West / Amiena BMI ©2014

Leave me alone you’re no good for me
Curse the days I laid eyes on you
Tried to walk away but it didn’t work
Sorry but this is me and I’m in love with you
When you kiss your wife on the lips at night
Do you remember how it was with me
Do you ever want to just go back let it all go and just be free

Wanna hate you wanna curse you let it all out
I say things that I don’t mean and it all comes out
I’m sorry but it’s still me and I’m standing and I gotta say
that I’m still in love with you

My heart belongs to you
Lying on the floor that you walk on through
Are you crazy feeling how you do
Something this real is it new for you
You are in my head and I don’t know how just to get you out so I pray aloud
To the God above to set me free
Rather live alone than in this you see

Wanna hate you wanna curse you let it all out
I say things that I don’t mean and it all comes out
I’m sorry but it’s still me and I’m standing and I gotta say
that I’m still in love with you
Track Name: Broken Hearts Mend
Broken Hearts Mend
Music: Myles West
Lyrics: Amiena
BMI ©2014

Where did you go
Lost myself trying to find you
God only knows all the lies you told me
Fell way too soon
Believed in the power of feelings
Jokes now on you
I'm stronger

They say broken hearts mend
Now I know that it's true
You're a ghost from the past
I'm better without you

Back on my feet
I smile coz I see that you're struggling
Don't want to be mean
But you hurt me

Broken hearts mend
Now I know that it's true
You're a ghost from the past
I'm better without you
Track Name: Unavailable
Music: Myles West
Lyrics: Amiena
BMI ©2014

Prayed aloud to the gods today they showed me it's all just a game you're the king and I'm the pawn you play

Yet here I am again
Standing alone like a fool
But I wouldn't change a thing for a chance at you, the unavailable.

Decided to walk away then just one text makes me stay
You're like a drug I gotta take, I'm addicted.

Clipped my wings now i cannot fly
I'm held captive
Give me a cage where I'll reside
And I'll smile
Track Name: Burn
Music: Myles West
Lyrics: Amiena
BMI ©2014

Lies you tell me
I believed them all
Played with matches
Now I suffer from it all

Tried to destroy me and all that you touch
I found out I'm stronger
Didn't love you that much

123 you hurt me
ABC my mama warned me

Played with matches
Got burned in the end
But I'd do it all over and over again

Burn me
Let it hurt
Found out I'm stronger than what your worth
Track Name: Never Forgotten [Dad's Song]
Never Forgotten
Music: Myles West
Lyrics: Amiena
BMI ©2014

Love for a lifetime
That goes beyond this world
Snapshots and memories
Moments together
No matter what happened
That cannot be erased

Never forgotten
Always desired
Missed with every fiber of my being
Found in my memories
All that makes up me
Now you live within my dreams

You told me
You'd never leave
Though I don't see you here
I trust in forever
You're watching me take falls and rise
Forever we're bonded in time and space

It's real
You're gone

Tricycle rides
Walks in the park
Marks on the wall to show I've grown
Fake grown up chats about life and my dreams if only I'd have known
