    To the Death (featuring guest vocalist Burton Cummings)

    To the Death

    Take me back into the garden
    Where I was born
    Lay me in the flowers
    Keep me warm
    All I ever wanted, wanted
    Is to die in peace and love
    Surrounded by the dust of my birth

    Your arms form a circle
    Draw me in
    Keep my here beside you
    Till I give in
    All I've ever wanted, wanted
    Here in comfort I'll remain
    Free to death and fear and pain

    Round and round and round we'll go
    Where it stops I'll never know
    If I die before I wake
    Pray the lord my soul to take

    Leave, leave me in the ashes
    Of desire
    Surrender to the silence
    Into the fire
    All I never wanted, wanted
    Is to burn in passions' flames
    Now that only dust remains

    Round and round and round we'll go
    Where it stops I'll never know
    If I die before I wake
    Pray the lord my soul to take

    Running Up That Hill (Kate Bush cover)

    Running Up That Hill

    It doesn't hurt me
    Do you want to feel how it feels
    Do you want to know
    Know that it doesn't hurt me
    Do you want to hear about
    The deal that I'm making
    It's you and me
    It's you and me

    And if I only could
    I'd make a deal with God
    And i'd get him to swap our places
    Be running up that road
    Be running up that hill
    Be running up that building
    Say if I only could

    You don't want to hurt me
    But see how deep the wound lies
    Unaware I'm tearing you asunder
    There is thunder in our hearts
    Is there so much hate for the ones we love
    Tell me we both matter now don't we
    You, it's you and me
    It's you and me
    It's you and me won't be unhappy

    And if I only could
    I'd make a deal with God
    And I'd get him to swap our places
    Be running up that road
    Be running up that hill
    Be running up that building
    Say if I only could
    It's you  and me
    It's you and me won't be unhappy

    Come on angel
    Come on darling
    Let me steal this moment from you now
    Come on angel come on come on darling
    Let's exchange the experience

    And if I only could
    I'd make a deal with God
    And I'd get him to swap our places
    Be running up that road
    Be running up that hill
    With no problems

    Said if I only could
    Be running up that hill
    With no problems
    If I only could
    I'd be running up that hill
    If I only could
    I'd be running up that hill
