This is the hardest part
When you feel like a fake
All that you have has become unreal
Collapsing and aching

All I want, all I want is right here
But love don't live here anymore
(Love is dead, love is gone, love don't live here anymore)
And love don't live here anymore
(Love is dead, love is gone, love don't live here anymore)

I am all that you think of me
When you're beside her, inside her
It must be so hard for you to deny it and hide it

All I want, all I want is right here
But love don't live here anymore
(Love is dead, love is gone, love don't live here anymore)
And love don't live here anymore
(Love is dead, love is gone, love don't live here anymore)
(Love is dead, love is gone, love don't live here anymore)

Love don't live here anymore
(Love is dead, love is gone, love don't live here anymore)
And love don't live here anymore
(Love is dead, love is gone, love don't live here anymore)
(Love is dead, love is gone, love don't live here anymore)
(Love is dead, love is gone, love don't live here anymore)
And love don't live here anymore

Walking on Air

lyricist: Lester Mendez, Kerli
La, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la

There's a creepy little house in a creepy little place
Little creepy town in a little creepy world
Little creepy girl with her little creepy face
Saying funny things you have never heard

Do you know what it's all about
Are you brave enough to figure out
Know that you could set your world on fire
If you are strong enough to leave your doubts

Feel it, breathe it, believe it
And you'll be walking on air
Go try, go fly, so high
And you'll be walking on air

She has a creepy little cat and a creepy little bat
Little rocking chair and an old blue hat
That little creepy girl, oh she loves to sing
She has a little gift, an amazing thing

With her funny little eyes of hazel
With her funny old blue hat
She will go and set the world on fire
No one ever thought she could do that

Feel it, breathe it, believe it
And you'll be walking on air
Go try, go fly, so high
And you'll be walking on air

Feel this, unless you kill it
Go on, and you're forgiven
I knew that, I could feel that
I feel like, I am walking on air

Flitter up, and
Hover down, be
All around, be
All around

You know that I love you
Go on

Feel it, breathe it, believe it
And you'll be walking on air
I knew that and I could feel that
I feel like, I'm walking on air

I'm walking on air

The Creationist

length: 3:39
producer: Guy Chambers
lead vocals: Kerli
mixer: Richard Flack
lyricist: Guy Chambers, Kerli
This is an old
And funny poem
I accidentally
Overheard

It keeps
The little children playing
And bigger children
Spread the word

My memory is bad
So I always tend
To forget how it goes
But

Life is my creation
Is my best friend
Imagination
Is my defense
And I'll keep walking
When skies are grey
Whatever happens
Was meant that way

You're no better
Or no worse
Than the others
We are all the same

And life
Is just a moment
You might as well
Enjoy this day

It's time
To start believing
That everything
You want is on it's way
And

Life is my creation
Is my best friend
Imagination
Is my defense
And I'll keep walking
When skies are grey
Whatever happens
Was meant that way

We'll be growing
Into knowing
While we're floating
Keep on going

I Want Nothing

length: 3:59
producer: David Maurice
lead vocals: Kerli
mixer: David Maurice
engineer: T.J. Doherty and David Maurice
lyricist: David Maurice, Kerli
Having the time of your lives
Happy within your disguise
Watch how the child in you dies
Circles inside of your mind

There's is more than meets the eye
Life is more than meets the eye

Strange how you got it but you're still coming back for more
I want nothing
If you think that you got it why they're treating you like a whore
And I want nothing from you
I want nothing from here
I want nothing

(Faking it all of the time
Conscience it cuts like a knife
When will you start to realize
We don't have time on our side)

There is more than meets the eye
Hits you right between the eyes

Strange how you got it but you're still coming back for more
I want nothing
If you think that you got it why they're treating you like a whore
And I want nothing from you
I want nothing from here
I want nothing [Repeat: x 2]

Strange how you got it but you're still coming back for more
I want nothing
If you think that you got it why they're treating you like a whore
And I want nothing from you

Up Up Up

lyricist: David Maurice, Kerli
Congratulations
False expectations
Wrong destination
And realization

That is
Manifestation
Fake sensation
Just imitation
Endless frustration

It's all the people going up up up up
It's all the people staying down down down
It's all the people going up up up up
It's all the people staying down down down

Imagination
Identification
And weak foundation
Is a bad combination

It's all the people going
Up up up up
It's all the people staying down down down
It's all the people going up up up up
It's all the people staying down down down

Listen

It's all the people going up up up up
It's all the people staying down down down
It's all the people going up up up up
It's all the people staying down down down

Bulletproof

engineer: T.J. Doherty and David Maurice
lyricist: Kerli
Just a simple touch,
Just a little glance
Makes me feel like flyin'.
But where are you tonight?
Something isn't right,
Can you please stop hiding?

I'm trying not to think about
All the things you did before,
But sometimes it all just gets to me.
I can't take it anymore.
I'll stay with you,
But remember to
Be careful what you do,
Cause I'm not bulletproof.

In your secret place,
Staring into space,
Leaves me feeling frozen.
I just need to feel, that what we have is real.
And I'm the one you've chosen.

I'm trying not to think about
All the things you did before,
But sometimes it all just gets to me.
I'll stay with you,
But remember to be careful what you do be
Cause I'm not bulletproof.

I'm trying not to think about
All the things you did before,
But sometimes it all just gets to me.
I can't take it anymore.
I'll stay with you,
But remember to
Be careful what you do,
Cause I'm not bulletproof.

And I'm not bulletproof
And I'm not bulletproof

I'm not bulletproof [Repeat until end]

Someone is smiling
Someone cries
Whatever it is it's alright
Someone is born and
Someone dies
Something is holding the light

It's standing in the line now
Standing in the line now
Standing here right now for you
Everything you do now
Everything you are now
Creating it right now for you

It's a beautiful day
The sun's coming up
The sun's going down for you
It's a beautiful day
And everyone said the world's turning round for you

There's no need to be afraid
There is no need to deny
That everything is on this way
Life's going on in you mind

It's standing in the line now
Standing in the line now
Standing here right now for you
Everything you do now
Everything you are now
Creating it right now for you

It's a beautiful day
The sun's coming up
The sun's going down for you
It's a beautiful day
And everyone said the world's turning round for you

Põdral maja metsa sees
Väiksest aknast välja vaatab
Jänes jookseb kõigest väest
Lävel seisma jääb
Kopp-kopp lahti tee
Metsas kuri jahimees
Jänes tuppa tule sa
Anna käppa ka

lyricist: Lester Mendez, Kerli
So full of rage
The human race.
Hold me while I'm fallin' down,
Rearrange what you have found.

[Chorus]
Hurt me!
See me crawling on the floor,
Is that what you've been longing for?
Is this enough, do you want more?
Go on, if it makes you soar!
Hurt me!
See me crawling on the floor,
Is that what you've been longing for?
Is this enough, do you want more?
Go on, if it makes you soar!


You hate my face,
My sweet embrace.
You hate me when I'm all around,
Enjoy it when I'm burning down.

[Chorus]

[Chorus: x 2]

lyricist: Krister Linder, Kerli
Did I hurt you?
Did I ever made you bleed inside?
Did I kill you?
I didn't mean to make you hide yourself,
Find you in you, beautiful.
Do not grow the seeds of pain in you,
Goodbye!
Let the butterflies cry,
Let them cry for you.
You just dry your eyes,
Because the world is wonderful.

Let the butterflies cry,
Let them cry for you.
You just dry your eyes,
Because the world is wonderful.

Oh, because the world is wonderful

I have been there,
I used to belive there was no light.
But I found out,
Oh, life is far too short to fight.
Loose yourself, let go of your pain,
Taste the air you breathe and kiss the sky.
Goodbye!

Let the butterflies cry,
Let them cry for you.
You just dry your eyes,
Because the world is wonderful.

Let the butterflies cry,
Let them cry for you.
You just dry your eyes,
Because the world is wonderful.

Oh, because the world is wonderful.

Let the butterflies cry,
Let them cry for you.
You just dry your eyes,
Because the world is wonderful.

Let the butterflies cry,
Let them cry for you.
You just dry your eyes,
Because the world is wonderful.

Oh, because the world is wonderful,

And yeah, because the world is wonderful!

You should never leave me home alone
Heaven knows where I might wanna go
Everything I do is oh so wrong
That's why you like it

When you ask if you could be my man
I say honey, thank you, come again

Strange boy

Everything that we are gonna do
Everything that we are going through
Just how you like it

I'm not another foolish sacrifice
Oh no, no, no
You're waiting for the world to pass you by
Living in a state of compromise
No, no, no, no

lyricist: Kerli, Peter Ågren, Anders Lennartsson
You think you know me
And everything that you consider me
You think you know my name
You think you know me
And everything you get a chance to see
You think you know my face
You think you know my face

You think you see me
And everything that you consider me
You think I'm more than you
You think you see me
You like the way I'm strong and stand by you
But I am fragile too
I am fragile too

Yeah I will be fine
As the time goes by
It may hurt at nights
But I will be fine
Yeah I will be fine

They think they know me
And everything that they consider me
They think I never cry
They are thinking
While they're making up their twisted lies
She won't mind, she's nice
She is cold as ice

You think you see me
and everything that you consider me
You think I'm more than you
You think you see me
You like the way I'm strong and stand by you
But I am fragile too
I am fragile too

I am fragile too
I am fragile too
Just like you
