"A PERFECT WORLD"
Words & Music by: Elsten C. Torres

Verse:
Before you cross another street
Before you look the other way
Before the lights begin to change
I’ll put your mind at ease

Verse:
Before the day begins to fade
Before the gold turns into grey
Before you cry yourself to sleep
I’ll catch your every tear

Chorus:
And I will make for you, and I will wait for you
I’ll create for you….A perfect world

Verse:
Before you take another pill
To the kill the void you’ve yet to fill
Before you think you’ve reach the end
I’ll start you over again

Chorus:
And I will make for you, and I will wait for you
I’ll create for you….A perfect world

Bridge:
By design, a perfect world, that always rhymes
A perfect world that will never run out, never run out of time

Verse:
Before your heart completely breaks
Before the hurt turns into pain
Before it gets too high to pay
I’ll be the first in line

Chorus:
And I will make for you, and I will wait for you
I’ll create for you….A perfect world


"BLEEDING HEARTS CLUB"

Words & Music by: Elsten C. Torres/Brendan Buckley

Verse:
It’s only been a day since you’ve been gone, but it feels like 72
It’s only been a while since I’ve been crying, but my eyes are burgundy blue

Pre:
And I don’t wanna be one of those kind of fragile people
Who break down every time they feel a little pain
but I’m afraid…that

Chorus:
I’m a member of the bleeding hearts club

Verse:
My friends, they tried to warn me long ago but I never paid them no mind
That every day I dig myself a hole with my heartache and bottle of wine

Pre:
Well I don’t want to go by myself to the family picnic
And have to listen to my momma say it’s such a shame…that

Chorus:
I’m a member of the bleeding hearts club 2x

Bridge:
Well I’m the head of the bleeding hearts
For all the fools who let their world just fall apart
Yes I’m the king of the broken hearts, the president, the CEO (infomercial)

Verse:
It’s only been a day since you’ve been gone, But it seems much longer than that
I founded myself a little group, Just for folks who dwell in the past

Pre:
And together we’re gonna be those kind of sensitive people
Who break down every time they feel a little pain, ain’t that a shame….but

Chorus:
We’re all members of the bleeding hearts club 3x


"CLOSER TONIGHT"
Words & Music by: Elsten C. Torres/Brendan Buckley

Verse:
You know that I hate to say goodbye
It always leaves my mouth so dry
Seems every time we slide onto our bed
Yeah the twilight pushes by

Pre:
I realize its selfishness, wishing the world would go away
And leave us here, side by side

Chorus:
If you stay closer tonight, tomorrow never has to know
If you stay closer tonight, then baby we can take it slow
If you stay closer tonight, I won’t allow the moon to change its glow
If you stay closer tonight

Verse:
Darling I know that we follow our own dreams
And we have to separate
Why does it always have to hurt so bad when you leave me once again

Pre:
I recognize that its loneliness, taking the place of this emptiness
Next to me, when you’re gone

Chorus:
If you stay closer tonight, tomorrow never has to know
If you stay closer tonight, then baby we can take it slow
If you stay closer tonight, I won’t allow the moon to change its glow

Bridge:
So hold me close to you all night long
Don’t let go till we see it’s dawn
Yeah hold me strong, all night long….

Chorus:
If you stay closer tonight, tomorrow never has to know
If you stay closer tonight, then baby we can take it slow
If you stay closer tonight, I won’t allow the moon to change its glow



"KEEPING ME WAITING"
Words & Music by: Elsten C. Torres/Brendan Buckley

Verse:
Every time that I think I have something to say
You put your fingers on my mouth and make my words come out a
Different way…

Any time that I want to put my feet on the ground,
you place your hands on your hips and just stare at me looking at me down, down, down….

(& you're just…)
Keeping me waiting for, for, for a while
Keeping me waiting for, for, for style
Keeping me waiting for, for, for miles….
Yeah you're Keeping me waiting, keeping me waiting, keeping me waiting in line

Verse:
All the while I try to be the perfect guy for you,
But all this love and affection, like a bullet, went straight through you…

I don’t mind when you go away leaving me tied
But the least you can do is when you get home you can bring me sunshine….

Chorus:
(but you're just…)
Keeping me waiting for, for, for a while
Keeping me waiting for, for, for style
Keeping me waiting for, for, for miles….

I’m not complaining, about the waiting
I just need to know what this is all about….

"THE ONLY ONE"
Words & Music By: Elsten C. Torres/Brendan Buckley

Verse:
What would you say, what would you do? If you gave me everything I always wanted and then I gave it back to you?
What would you say, what would you do? If I always said enough to make you happy but then I never told the truth?


Would you want to feel my real emotions cutting through, coming through?

Chorus:
Now you see that I’m the only one, who gave it all he had for two
Now it seems that you’re the lucky one, who never had a lot to prove
Now you see that I’m the only one, who always had the most to lose
I’m the only one, the only one

Verse:
What would you say, what would you do? If I never let you know how I was feeling, and then pretended that you knew?
Would you want to know which real emotion wasn’t true? wasn’t true?


Chorus:
Now you see that I’m the only one, who gave it all he had for two
Now it seems that you’re the lucky one, who never had a thing to do
Now you see that I’m the only one, who always had the most to lose
I’m the only one, the only one


THE ONLY ONE…THE ONLY ONE….
THE ONLY ONE…THE ONLY ONE….

Outro –
The only one you ever ever knew…


"SITTING ON YOUR THRONE"
Words & Music by: Elsten C. Torres/Brendan Buckley

Verse:
So you’ve settled for indifference…other weapons you’ve disposed
You use to climb onto your heartaches, But the window to your cruelty was exposed

Chorus:
Like the story of Cain, there’s no joy out of pain
Sometimes bad and the good feels the same
When you run like a King, there’s a chance you’ll break everything
While sitting on your throne

Verse:
Are your properly adjusted? Have the demons gone away?
You worry, worry, worry, don’t you?
But the angels and the shadows refuse to play

Chorus: 
Like the story of Cain, there’s no joy out of pain
Sometimes bad and the good feels the same
When you run like a King, there’s a chance you’ll break everything
While sitting on your throne

Bridge:
While sitting on your throne, you might just be alone
Or you might just turn to stone

Chorus:
Like the story of Cain, there’s no joy out of pain
Sometimes bad and the good feels the same
When you run like a King, there’s a chance you’ll break everything
While sitting on your throne

Tag:
While sitting on your throne…While sitting on your throne
While sitting on your throne….while sitting on you’re throne



"HALF-HEARTED"
Words & Music by: Elsten C. Torres/Brendan Buckley

Verse:
I can’t tell what time it is,
When the moon is out and the sky is still blue…
I don’t know whose fault it is,
If the sun keeps shining while the rain pours in

And I’ve been here before; I don’t know how to feel…
So I’ll dance this dance alone….

Chorus:
Cause I’m Half-Hearted, yes I’m Half-Hearted,
I am Half-Hearted without you…

Verse:
I can’t see the road ahead,
Cause the tears I cry last longer than the ones outside
I don’t know what day comes next,
When yesterday seems like all the rest

And I’ve lost my control; I don’t know what is real…
So I’ll dance this dance alone….

Chorus:
Cause I’m Half-Hearted, yes I’m Half-Hearted,
I am Half-Hearted without you…
Well, I’m Half-Hearted, yes I’m Half-Hearted,
I am Half-Hearted since you’re gone, since you’re gone…
I am Half-Hearted, Yes I’m Half-Hearted, I am Half-Hearted without you…



"THROUGH THE WINDOW"
Words & Music by: Elsten C. Torres/Brendan Buckley

Verse:
In a house that had so much sunlight, now she lets the darkness in
No reflection, no sentiment just the promises they couldn’t keep
Pre:
I can only sit and wonder why?
Her lonely days are filling up my mind

Verse:
On a face that had no stories to tell, now she lets them all hang out

Chorus:
Through her window, I’m watching as her life goes by
Oh through her window, I can see her life is mine

Verse:
In her world that was perfectly made, now she’s a causality of war
A looking glass at her destiny, no this wasn’t suppose to be
Pre:
She’s become what no one should become
An empty shadow from a severed love

Chorus:
Through her window, I’m watching as her life goes by
Oh through her window, I can see her life is mine

Bridge:
Maybe she just can’t see, everything I can see
Darling you’re just like me, waiting for someone to believe in now

Chorus:
And through her window, I can see myself inside
Yes through her window, I can see her life is mine



"IT'S ABOUT TIME"
Words & Music by: Elsten C. Torres/Brendan Buckley

Verse:
Baby doesn’t know what she wants
Baby doesn’t know how she feels…
Baby only knows that she needs the center stage…
Verse:
Baby doesn’t care how it looks
All of the attention she takes
Baby only wants to belong, to socialize.

Chorus:
It’s About Time she makes her move
It’s About Time she’s headline news
It’s About Time; she just forgets…forgets about you…

Verse:
Baby never had to try out
She was overnight in a day…
Baby had a plan & her plan worked right away

Chorus:
It’s About Time she makes her move
It’s About Time she’s headline news
It’s About Time; she just forgets…forgets about you…

Bridge:
It’s about that time…that she sees her cheap compromise
It’s about that time…that she sees the lies…it’s about that time…

Chorus: 
It’s About Time she makes her move
It’s About Time she’s headline news
It’s About Time; she just forgets…forgets about you…
It’s About Time she’s idolized
It’s About Time she’s scrutinized
It’s About Time, she just don’t care, don’t care about you



"WAITING FOR CLOUDS"
Words & Music By: Elsten C. Torres/Julian A. Zimmon/Brendan Buckley

Verse:
The sun warms my head but doesn’t reach my heart
The shelter we’ve made, has melted apart
I’m bleeding inside the tears that you shed
They break thru my skin but never leave my bed
Never leave my bed; they never leave my bed 3x

Chorus :
It hasn’t rained no nothing comes down
I’ll take the blame that you’re not around
I used you up, I never gave much…. waiting for clouds

Verse:
You made it clear that you couldn’t feel (cause)
Love’s not a choice or some crooked deal
I spat on your scars and laughed at your pain
Darling I burn, but it’s cold where I lay
Doesn’t reach my heart….3x

Chorus :
It hasn’t rained no nothing comes down
I’ll take the blame that you’re not around
I used you up, I never gave much…. waiting for clouds

Bridge :
Waiting for a cloud, with your ashes on the ground

Verse:
The sun warms my head but doesn’t reach my heart
The shelter we’ve made, has melted apart….
