Track Name: snow white
She’s the one who gets to feel
your body thrust and grind.
She’s the one that you make moan,
and sing, and scream, and whine.
Your heart, can’t I possess?
I’m envious, I confess
Can’t I be the only
lover that you caress?
Mirror, mirror on the wall;
who’s the fairest of them all?
Mirror, mirror on the wall;
she’s his everything and all.

Touch me like you touch her.
Hold me through the night.
T-t-t-touch me.
Make me feel alive.

She’s the prettiest thing
that I think I’ve ever seen.
No wonder she comes to mind
before you drift to sleep.
Can’t I be her instead?
Why not stain my lips blood red?
Can’t I be the one to sing
the songs inside your head?

Mirror, mirror on the wall;
who’s the fairest of them all?
Mirror, mirror on the wall;
she’s his everything and all.

Touch me like you touch her.
Hold me through the night.
T-t-t-touch me.
Make me feel alive.
Touch me like you touch her.
Hold me through the night.
T-t-t-touch me.
Make me feel alive.

I want to you love me
the way you love her.
I want you to love me
the way you love her.
The way you love her.

Let me be the poison
apple of your eye.
Let me sing for you.
Let me be the poison
apple of your eye.
Let me sing for you.
Track Name: spellbound
You have got some sort of hold over me.
My heart’s on a string, and I can’t tug it free.
You can do whatever you want to me.
Some say “it’s not love,”
but I disagree.

Feels like you have cast spell over me,
though I should resist, I don’t wanna break free.
This love’s an illusion, but I cannot tell,
‘cause I’m happy here in this glorious hell.

Spellbound, and torn in half,
between what’s real and what is pretend.
Spellbound, and falling apart.
Someone please help me, and cut out my heart.

Spellbound, and torn in half,
between what’s real and what is pretend.
Spellbound, and falling apart.
Someone please help me, and cut out my heart.

Riding deeper and deeper into hell
on this never ending carousel.
I just want it to stop,
I just want it to stop,
I just want it to stop!

Riding deeper and deeper into hell
on this never ending carousel.
I just want it to stop,
I just want it to stop,
I don’t want it to stop!!

Spellbound, and torn in half,
between what’s real and what is pretend.
Spellbound, and falling apart.
Someone please help me, and cut out my heart.
Track Name: sweet poison
I don’t think I’ll ever understand.
What crime’s lacing fingers,
simply touching hands?
I don’t see why we feel so out of place,
with ours arms wrapped around each others’ waists.

You and I exist in fantasy.
Nothing but a dirty, dirty, naughty, reality.
I’ve got a thirst for something I can’t have.
Sweet poison,
I want you so bad.
Why can’t I quit you?
This love’s killing me.
Sweet poison,
the fair death of me.

I’ve got a craving that drives me insane.
I’ve been keeping it secret.
What a dirty shame.
Just want your poisonous kiss in the dark.
I only wanna dance with you under the stars.

You and I exist in fantasy.
Why can’t we ever become a reality?
I’ve got a thirst for something I can’t have.
Sweet poison,
I want you so bad.
Why can’t I quit you?
This love’s killing me.
Sweet poison,
the fair death of me.

I’ve got a thirst for something I can’t have.
Sweet poison,
I want you so bad.
Why can’t I quit you?
This love’s killing me.
Sweet poison,
the fair death of me.
