Track Name: Mainstream
You won’t find me in the club
I don’t pop bottles like it’s going out of style
Yeah I stay classy when I’m having fun
This may be unusual but I’m sure I’m not the only one

I don’t sing about sex
I don’t think it’s any of your gosh darn business
Go raise your glass up in the air
Get drunk and don’t care
I won’t be there next to you
Because I got better things to do

All common sense aside
Welcome to your Mainstream
It must be true because it’s gotten worldwide
Welcome to your Mainstream

I don’t need money or the fame
I’m not trying to sell you what will drive you insane
And I don’t want to be on TV for showing off my body
Got no dirty pics of me
Instead I’ve got some dignity

I’m waiting for the moment that I can take over
Trust me you will be glad
I’m waking you up from your stupor
This is too common I think we need a remedy
I need to get you to see

You won’t find me in the club
I don’t pop bottles like it’s going out of style
Yeah I stay classy when I’m having fun
That may be unusual but I’m sure I’m not the only one
Track Name: Supernovas
I am on a mission, want you in my life
I've been watching you and checking on the time
You see I've had a crush for a very long while
Now you're onto me, thinking that you're onto me

I might get aggressive, obsessive, I can't deny
Got too much attention on this one guy
See I'm the kind of girl that needs a prince charming
If you want to be him we can get started

Say yes yes it'll blow your mind
Take this chance for a girl that's right
For you all of the stars align
Bang, bang, supernovas collide

Burst so bright taking up the sky
like a flame that just won't die
When we're up there we're nothing but air
And diamonds in the night
That's when you know it's right
Bang, bang, supernovas collide

I had a premonition, could you believe
A sight so good that it, it over took me
Maybe this lifetime I'll be lucky
You'll fall in love with me, really fall in love with me

I might get aggressive, obsessive, I can't deny
When you look at me with that smile
I'm the kind of girl that needs a prince charming
If you want to be him we can get started

Say yes yes it'll blow your mind
Take this chance for a girl that's right
For you all of the stars align
Bang, bang, supernovas collide


Listen, I don't want to wait
I'm not gonna test my luck with fate
This love has made me contemplate
A whole new frame of mind
So seek and you shall find
True love is right beside you
Take another step I'll guide you into our universe
That's where we begin our brand new story
First got a boy and a boy meets a girl
And they fall so hard they make the stars dizzy

I'm the kind of girl that finds it exciting
I wanna make your world bright and shining
Say yes yes it'll blow your mind
Take this chance for a girl that's right
For you all of the stars align
Bang, bang, supernovas collide
Track Name: Hypnotized
I used to have a problem with boys
They didn't really like me they'd rather have toys
I didn't do my hair, I was fat and didn't care
I couldn't get a blink, or a wink, or a stare

So usually I'd make a lot of noise
Show off my acne and lack of poise
I thought it wasn't me, I thought that I was pretty
Until I realized that they wouldn't come near me

And then one day I grew up
I learned to put on make-up
Broke my shell and smiled so well
I had every boy in a spell

Took some work but I think I'm ready
Hold my hand to keep my heart steady
I told my girls I'll be out tonight under the moonlight
Your laugh and smile just makes me happy
To wait so long has driven me crazy
Way back then you'd avoid my eyes
But now you're hypnotized

I used to have a problem with boys
All of my flirting would be destroyed
I would be ignored, or they would get bored
I was not what they were looking for

And then one day I grew up
I learned to put on make-up
Broke my shell and smiled so well
I had every boy in a spell


I don't blame you
Although I want to
Look at me now
Time is magic
Isn't it fantastic
Once I was nothing
Now I'm all that's on your mind

Took some work but I think I'm ready
Hold my hand to keep my heart steady
I told my girls I'll be out tonight, way after midnight
Your laugh and smile just makes me happy
To wait so long has driven me crazy
Way back then you'd avoid my eyes
But now you're hypnotized
Now you're hypnotized
Track Name: I Mean It
Listen closely
I have much to say
Feel my heartbeat
I could run away
I knew that you'd find me
On this simple day
I need to say that I...

Too soon, think that I'll regret it
You're here, it's gotta be the moment
Last breath, think I better own it
That's it, I'm telling you, I'm telling you that

Once I say I love you boy I mean it, I mean it
You're the one and just the thing I needed, I needed
Once I say I love you boy repeat it, repeat it
Say it back and tell me that you mean it, you mean it

Fill the silence
Tell me what you think
Don't keep me waiting
I am on the brink
Have I lost my mind
Do you feel the same
Why don't you say, baby

Too soon, think that I'll regret it
You're here, it's gotta be the moment
Last breath, think I better own it
That's it, I'm telling you, I'm telling you that


Am I living in a fantasy
Could you be the one to love me
We could take it slow and let things grow naturally
But I'll be right here (waiting, waiting)
With my heart open (beating, beating)
I'm telling you what's real
This is how I feel

I'm telling you, telling you, telling you that
Please don't make me take it back
You know that, you know that, you that's true
Baby I love you
Track Name: Poison Apple
I take a bite and die
It tastes like nothing but a fatal love
This time I won't take a bite again

He calls in the middle of the night
My heart falls at the sound of his voice
I'm so scared that I gotta

(I gotta, run I gotta)
He's dangerous and tempting
But death is not forgiving

Poison apple
He's delicious and it's so hard to resist
But you see that boy's trouble
I take a bite and die
It tastes like nothing but a fatal love


His words tangle me until I'm caught up
And it hurts that I might not be the only one
It's so hard but I've gotta

(I gotta, run I gotta)
He's dangerous and tempting
But death is not forgiving


From the start he charmingly
Looked the part that I could see
I must have been mistaken
He broke my heart and let it bleed

You will be sorry because I'm not someone you love and leave
Now you should run away before you get a taste of me

Next time I won't take a bite again
Next time I won't take a bite again
Track Name: Goodbye, Goodnight
Saying goodbye, saying good night
Look in my eyes, look in my eyes
We're saying goodbye, we're saying good night
Look in my eyes, look in my eyes

Every memory passes per minute
Only a lifetime's distance away
I will never forget a second
Because I felt I knew you
I know you knew me too

Just a late night out on the cement
Watching a thousand hearts give away
Full of secrets, laughter and moments
Each of us knows we won't be the same

We're growing closer every single day
Tomorrow's much too soon I think I'll run away

This may be the end I admit it
We're only a lifetime's distance away
But we will meet again you can bet it
Because I felt I knew you
I know you knew me too
Look in my eyes
