Track Name: Here Is The Rose
HERE IS THE ROSE // OUTERNATIONAL

When the nighttime hits
And loneliness sinks in
You've been getting into mischief
I've been listening
I want to hear your thoughts
And see it all
I can hear the wails through the walls

You want to go out tonight
You want to know what it's like
When the wind's in your lungs
And the fire is in those eyes
Here is the rose now dance tonight

Can you tell me if my eyes can see?
If my ears can hear you whispering?
Do you stand there in front of me?
Here is the rose now dance tonight
Here is the rose now dance tonight
Here is the rose now dance tonight

The violence is all too common
The starvation, the kids coffins
The night is young
The hour is getting late
It's a' far along
And we just can't wait

A moment in time
And then it is gone
Now wait a second here
Something is wrong
I see you standing there
Here is the rose now dance tonight

Can you tell me if my eyes can see?
If my ears can hear you whispering?
Do you stand there in front of me?
Here is the rose now dance tonight
Here is the rose now dance tonight
Here is the rose now dance tonight

You wear your heart
On your sleeve
You're running fast
Down the street
Your feet on the ground
Why don't you dance with me?
Here is the rose now dance tonight

Can you tell me if my eyes can see?
If my ears can hear you whispering?
Do you stand there in front of me?
Here is the rose now dance tonight
Here is the rose now dance tonight
Here is the rose now dance tonight...

Here is the rose now dance tonight....
Track Name: We Own The Night
WE OWN THE NIGHT // OUTERNATIONAL

Talking about a love
I want to feel
What it's like when it ain't concealed
Just a vision in the middle of my night
Your smile, your eyes in the limelight
Write me a letter, sing me a song
Paint us a picture, it's been too long

Can you see it?
Can you feel it? Alright
We own the night

Talking to the kids outside of the school
They are on a mission and ready to move
You want to tell me but you really don't know
You want to kiss me but you look so cold
You know me, show me, hold me tight
Right here sister, walk with me tonight

Can you see it?
Can you feel it? Alright
We own the night
Track Name: She Craves Spring
SHE CRAVES SPRING // OUTERNATIONAL

I wander the paths of the city
In search of the cries
Under the gaze of Lady Liberty
With skulls in her eyes
Under the gaze of a street-lamp
Sally stood and thought
Of all the hands that held her
And how she fought

She craves spring not for herself alone

She's humming lullabies and sighs with the streets
Whispering to that man with nothing left to eat
When will this end? When will we win?
Together they stand holding hands in the wind

She craves spring not for herself alone
Unleash the fury held down for so long

This woman knows there's no man above
Your brothel's are filled with a slave-master's love
All my sisters, ready to fly
Breaking tradition holding half the sky
Track Name: Ladies Of The Night
LADIES OF THE NIGHT // OUTERNATIONAL

One way or another
I’m going to find you
I’m trying to
Beneath the surface
Where the well is deep and wide
Maybe they gather under moonlit skies
I know I’ve seen them on the other side

In that place where no one goes
The bottom of the desert, where the scorpions roam
Where did they go, are they still alive?
Have they been burnt by the fire outside?
Everybody’s been looking, wondering who took them
You can’t find your "ladies of the night"

Free women walking side by side
There’s a revival tonight
These women and their little girls
Messengers from a whole new world

The darkness needs a harlot
A Mata Hari market, but
The sisters untethered
Shackles busted, alright
Heads held high in the Southwestern sky
Spirit strong in flight
What was wrong is made right
They were never "ladies of the night"

Free women walking side by side
There’s a revival tonight
These women and their little girls
Messengers from a whole new world
