Different Kind of Human by Aurora

Hello? Hello?
Hello? Hello? Hello?
Hello? Hello?
Hello? Hello? Hello?

Are you awake or are you sleeping?
Are you afraid? We've been waiting for this meeting
Oh Superman, are you with me when I am too weak?
Oh Mother, are you dreaming of me in your sleep?

We have come here for you
And we're coming in peace
Mothership will take you on higher, higher

This world you live in is not a place for someone like you
Come on, let us take you home
It's time to go, you are infected
Come as you are, don't be scared of us, you'll be protected
(Protected, protected)

I guess you are a different kind of human
I guess you are a different kind of human
We have come here for you
And we're coming in peace
Mothership will take you on higher, higher
This world you live in is not a place for someone like you
Come on, let us take you home

Omega hai foleet
Omega hai foleet
Omega toneca
Omega forleet
Omega hai foleet
Omega hai foleet
Omega toneca
Omega forleet

There is a flaw in man-made matters
But you are pure and we have to get you out of here
We have come here for you
And we're coming in peace
Mothership will take you on higher, higher
This world you live is not a place for someone like you
Come on let us take you home
We have come here for you
And we're coming in peace
Mothership will take you on higher, higher
This world you live is not a place for someone like you
Come on, let us take you home

Omega hai foleet
Omega hai foleet
Omega toneca
Omega foleet
Omega hai foleet
Omega hai foleet
Omega toneca
Omega forleet

Hello? Hello?
Hello? Hello?
Is anyone out there?
Am I home? Am I home?

Bridge Over Troubled Water
By: Simon and Garfunkel

When you're weary
Feeling small
When tears are in your eyes
I'll dry them all
I'm on your side
Oh, when times get rough
And friends just can't be found

Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

When you're down and out
When you're on the street
When evening falls so hard
I will comfort you
I'll take your part
Oh, when darkness comes
And pain is all around

Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

Sail on silver girl
Sail on by
Your time has come to shine
All your dreams are on their way
See how they shine
Oh, if you need a friend
I'm sailing right behind

Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind

Recovery by James Arthur


I don't want to play this game no more
I don't wanna play it
I don't want to stay 'round here no more
I don't wanna stay here
Like rain on a monday morning
Like pain that just keeps on going on

Look at all the hate they keep on showing
I don't want to see that
Look at all the stones they keep on throwing
I don't want to feel that
Like sun that will keep on burning
I used to be so discerning, oh

In my recovery
I'm a soldier at war
I have broken down walls
I defined, I designed

My recovery
In the sound of the sea
In the oceans of me
I defined, I designed
My recovery

Keep soaring
Keep song-writing
Keep soaring
Keep song-writing

My recovery

And I can hear the choirs keep on singing
Tell me what they're saying
And I can hear the phone, it keeps on ringing
I don't want to answer
I know that I used to listen
And I know I've become dismissive, oh

In my recovery
I'm a soldier at war
I have broken down walls
I defined, I designed

My recovery
In the sound of the sea
In the oceans of me
I defined, I designed

My recovery
Keep soaring
Keep song-writing
Keep soaring
Keep song-writing
My recovery

In my recovery
I'm a soldier at war
I have broken down walls
I defined, I designed

My recovery
In the sound of the sea
In the oceans of me
I defined, I designed

My recovery

Keep soaring
Keep song-writing
Keep soaring
Keep song-writing

My recovery

Keep soaring
Keep song-writing

Joan of Arc on the Dance Floor
by Aly&AJ

Every night we walk the line
Every time we step out of the shadows
People pass by, always onto the next
With a dead heart, yeah, they're full of regret
They got sad eyes, empty promises

(We don't need 'em)

We don't stop
Until mascara's on the dance floor
We say, "No!"
Joan of Arc is on the dance floor

At the stake, we don't fight the flames
Are you born in vain if you die your savior?
People pass by, always onto the next
With a dead heart, yeah, they're full of regret
They got sad eyes, empty promises

We don't stop
Until mascara's on the dance floor
We say, "No!"
Joan of Arc is on the dance floor

Knights in armor hide under eyeliner
Lights are low, the night will take us higher
We don't stop
We say, "No!"

We don't stop
Until mascara's on the dance floor (We don't stop)
We say, "No!"
Joan of Arc is on the dance floor

Knights in armor hide under eyeliner
Lights are low, the night will take us higher

Higher

Infections of a Different Kind
by Aurora

It's a feeling growing old with time
Like a restlessness in the leaves calming down
The world is a hole and we all seem to fall
Down and down

And the universe is growing tall
And we all caving into dreams of the space
Unfolding her arms cannot do any harm
Violent contractions

And if there is a God, would we even know his name?
And if there is a God, I think he would shake his head
And turn away

So belong to us all
Be God in a shape of a girl
Who walks this world

And I beg, I beg to be drained
From the pain I've soaked myself in
So I can stay



Okay, and more than okay for a while
For a while, for a while..

Infections of a different kind
The world is being attacked by your pain
If I'm the world then why would I hurt
All that is living?

And if there is a God, would he then believe in us?
And if there is a God, I think he can't hear all of us

Belong to us all
Be God in a shape of a girl
Who walks this world
And I beg, I beg to be drained
From the pain I've soaked myself in
So I can stay

Okay, and more than okay for a while
For a while, for a while...


This is the breath, this is the breath...

Runaway
By Aurora

I was listening to the ocean
I saw a face in the sand
But when I picked it up
Then it vanished away from my hands, down
I had a dream I was seven
Climbing my way in a tree
I saw a piece of heaven
Waiting, impatient, for me, down
And I was running far away
Would I run off the world someday?
Nobody knows, nobody knows

I was dancing in the rain
I felt alive and I can't complain

But now take me home
Take me home where I belong
I can't take it anymore

I was painting a picture
The picture was a painting of you
And for a moment I thought you were here
But then again, it wasn't true, down
And all this time I have been lying
Oh, lying in secret to myself
I've been putting sorrow on the farthest place on my shelf

And I was running far away
Would I run off the world someday?
Nobody knows, nobody knows

And I was dancing in the rain
I felt alive and I can't complain

But now take me home
Take me home where I belong
I got no other place to go

Now take me home
Take me home where I belong
I got no other place to go
Now take me home
Take me home where I belong
I can't take it anymore

But I kept running for a soft place to fall
And I kept running for a soft place to fall
And I kept running for a soft place to fall
And I kept running for a soft place to fall
And I was running far away
Would I run off the world someday?

But now take me home
Take me home where I belong
I got no other place to go
Now take me home
Take me home where I belong
I got no other place to go

Now take me home, home where I belong
Now take me home, home where I belong
Now take me home, home where I belong
Now take me home, home where I belong
I can't take it anymore

Eight by Sleeping At Last

I remember the minute
It was like a switch was flipped
I was just a kid who grew up strong enough
To pick this armor up
And suddenly it fit

God, that was so long ago, long ago, long ago
I was little, I was weak and perfectly naive
And I grew up too quick

Now you won't see all that I have to lose
And all I've lost in the fight to protect it
I won't let you in, I swore never again
I can't afford, no, I refuse to be rejected

I want to break these bones 'til they're better
I want to break them right and feel alive
You were wrong, you were wrong, you were wrong
My healing needed more than time

When I see fragile things, helpless things, broken things
I see the familiar
I was little, I was weak, I was perfect, too
Now I'm a broken mirror

But I can't let you see all that I have to lose
All I've lost in the fight to protect it
I can't let you in, I swore never again
I can't afford to let myself be blindsided

I'm standing guard, I'm falling apart
And all I want is to trust you
Show me how to lay my sword down
For long enough to let you through

Here I am, pry me open
What do you want to know?
I'm just a kid who grew up scared enough
To hold the door shut
And bury my innocence
But here's a map, here's a shovel
Here's my Achilles' heel

I'm all in, palms out
I'm at your mercy now and I'm ready to begin
I am strong, I am strong, I am strong enough to let you in

I'ma shake the ground with all my might
And I will pull my whole heart up to the surface
For the innocent, for the vulnerable

And I'll show up on the front lines with a purpose
And I'll give all I have, I'll give my blood, give my sweat
An ocean of tears will spill for what is broken
I'm shattered porcelain, glued back together again
Invincible like I've never been

Unchained Melody by Smith & Myers (Cover)

Woah, my love, my darling
I've hungered for your touch
A long, lonely time
And time goes by so slowly
And time can do so much
Are you still mine?
I need your love
I need your love
God speed your love to me

Lonely rivers flow
To the sea, to the sea
To the open arms of the sea, yeah
Lonely rivers sigh
"Wait for me, wait for me"
I'll be coming home, wait for me

Woah, my love, my darling
I've hungered, hungered for your touch
A long, lonely time
And time goes by so slowly
And time can do so much
Are you still mine?
I need your love
I need your love
God speed your love to me

I see this being one of Josie’s favorites to warm up to, dance to when she’s in one of the rehearsal rooms by herself, or whenever she gets a chance to run through the trees under the stars with Vie, or dance by the sea under a full moon. Love how the beat changes!

Daydreamer by Aurora

White, silicon eyes, watching storms, sitting quiet
Reading books in the heat of city lights
Bored, everyone's bored
When I'm restless, put me under the night life stars
And I will feel grounded
I know I'm just a girl
But can I change lives?
If I am nothing, if I am trying, I think I can
I step on broken glass, and dream of soft clouds
When feelings are heavy they become all we are
And we become night time dreamers
And street walkers, small talkers
When we should be daydreamers
And moonwalkers and dream talkers
And we become night time dreamers
Street walkers, small talkers
When we should be daydreamers
And moonwalkers and dream talkers
In real life
The quiet lust belongs to all of us
And drives us closer into the madness
Of the world, of a girl
(And it suits me just fine)
'Cause everyone dies, and nobody loves
And somebody dies right now
I hear the quiet, sweet music that no one sings
And we become night time dreamers
Street walkers and small talkers
When we should be daydreamers
And moonwalkers and dream talkers
And we become night time dreamers
Street walkers, small talkers
When we should be daydreamers
And moonwalkers and dream talkers
In real life
All I ever know is what I dream about when I'm sober
Never turn away from love
Before the love, you have me sober
All I ever know is what I dream about when I'm sober
Never turn away from love
Before the love, you have me sober
Nothing can die while we are here
Nothing can die while we are here
Nothing can die while we are here
Nothing can die while we are here
Then we become night time dreamers
Street walkers and small talkers
When we should be daydreamers
And moonwalkers and dream talkers
And we become night time dreamers
Street walkers, small talkers
When we should be daydreamers
(Nothing can die while we are here)
When we should be daydreamers
(Nothing can die while, nothing can die)
Daydreamers

Someone to Stay by Vancouver Sleep Clinic

You were alone, left out in the cold
Clinging to the ruin of your broken home
Too lost and hurting to carry your load
We all need someone to hold

You've been fighting the memory, all on your own
Nothing worsens, nothing grows
I know how it feels being by yourself in the rain
We all need someone to stay
We all need someone to stay

Hear the fallen and lonely, cry out
Will you fix me up? Will you show me hope?
At the end of the day you were helpless
Can you keep me close? Can you love me most?

You've drunk it down and you've spat it out
And nothing tastes like the things you had
So tear it off, why don't you let them go?
We all need someone to stay
We all need someone to stay

Hear the fallen and lonely, cry out
Will you fix me up? Will you show me hope?
At the end of the day we're helpless
Can you keep me close? Can you love me most?
Can you keep me close? Can you love me most?
Can you keep me close? Can you love me most?

You were alone, left out in the cold
Clinging to the ruin of your broken home
Hear the falling and lonely, cry out
Will you fix me up? Will you show me hope?
The end of the day and we're helpless
Can you keep me close? Can you love me?

Hear the fallen and lonely, cry out
Will you fix me up? Will you show me hope?
At the end of the day we're helpless
Can you keep me close? Can you love me most?
Can you keep me close? Can you love me most?
Can you keep me close? Can you love me most?

No One Is Alone -Into the Woods -Stephen Sondheim

Mother cannot guide you.
Now you're on you're own.
Only me beside you.
Still, you're not alone.
No one is alone, truly.
No one is alone.

Sometimes people leave you
Halfway through the wood.
Others may deceive you
You decide what’s good.

You decide alone.
But no one is alone.

I wish...

I know.

Mother isn't here now.

Wrong things, right things...

Who knows what she'd say?

Who can say what's true?

Nothing's quite so clear now-

Do things, fight things...

Feel you've lost your way?
You decide, but
You are not alone,
Believe me.
No one is alone.
No one is alone,
Believe me.
Truly...

You move just a finger,
Say the slightest word,
Something's bound to linger,
Be heard.


No one acts alone.
Careful, no one is alone.

People make mistakes.
Fathers,
Mothers,
People make mistakes,
Holding to their own,
Thinking they're alone.
Honor their mistakes...
Fight for their mistakes-
Everybody makes-
One another's
Terrible mistakes.
Witches can be right,
Giants can be good.
You decide what's right,
You decide what's good.

Just remember
Just remember

Someone is on your side.

Our side.

Our side.

Someone else is not.

While we're seeing our side-

Our side.

Our side...

Maybe we forgot.
They are not alone.
No one is alone.

Hard to see the light now.
Just don't let it go.

Things will come out right now.
We can make it so.
Someone is on your side,
No one is alone.

Turning Page by Sleeping At Last

I've waited a hundred years
But I'd wait a million more for you

Nothing prepared me for
What the privilege of being yours would do

If I had only felt the warmth within your touch
If I had only seen how you smile when you blush
Or how you curl your lip when you concentrate enough
I would have known what I was living for all along

What I've been living for

Your love is my turning page
Where only the sweetest words remain

Every kiss is a cursive line
Every touch is a redefining phrase

I surrender who I've been for who you are
For nothing makes me stronger than your fragile heart
If I had only felt how it feels to be yours
Well, I would have known what I've been living for all along

What I've been living for

Though we're tethered to the story we must tell
When I saw you, well I knew we'd tell it well
With a whisper, we will tame the vicious seas
Like a feather, bringing kingdoms to their knees

The Times They Are A-Changin
(Fort Nowhere cover)
Lyrics by Bob Dylan

Come gather ’round people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
You’ll be drenched to the bone
If your time to you is worth savin’
Then you better start swimmin’ or you’ll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin’

Come writers and critics
Who prophesize with your pen
And keep your eyes wide
The chance won’t come again
And don’t speak too soon
For the wheel’s still in spin
And there’s no tellin’ who that it’s namin’
For the loser now will be later to win
For the times they are a-changin’

Come senators, congressmen
Please heed the call
Don’t stand in the doorway
Don’t block up the hall
For he that gets hurt
Will be he who has stalled
There’s a battle outside and it is ragin’
It’ll soon shake your windows and rattle your walls
For the times they are a-changin’

Come mothers and fathers
Throughout the land
And don’t criticize
What you can’t understand
Your sons and your daughters
Are beyond your command
Your old road is rapidly agin’
Please get out of the new one if you can’t lend your hand
For the times they are a-changin’

The line it is drawn
The curse it is cast
The slow one now
Will later be fast
As the present now
Will later be past
The order is rapidly fadin’
And the first one now will later be last
For the times they are a-changin.’
