Track Name: Still
You are the door that’s left wide open
You are the voices in the hall
You are the footsteps from the stairwell
You are the silhouette on the wall

You’re the creaking of the floorboards
You’re the choking of the pipes
You’re the breeze beneath the window
You’re the failing of the light
And the noises in the night

You’re still here
You’re still here
I thought I saw you leave but you’re still here
You’re still here
Even though
I saw you go
Everything is still

You are the flicker of the picture
You are the static on the screen
You are the marks upon the mirror
You are the tarnish, the taint, the sheen


You’re the breaking of the bad news
You’re the trailing of the tears
You’re the patronising half-smiles
You’re the passing of the years
And the unfolding of my fears

Chorus

You’re still here
You’re still here
I thought I saw you leave but you’re still here
You’re still here
Even though I saw you go
Everything is still

You’re still here
You’re still here
I saw you disappear
but you’re still here
You’re still here
Even though
I told you to go
I told you to go
I told you to go
I told you to go
Track Name: Unrequited
You don’t seem to know my name
You don’t recognize my face
And I can never catch your eye
One day I’ll put your in you place

That’s why I stand outside your room
That’s why I walk three steps behind
That’s why I listen at your door
One day I’ll see inside your mind

And when you come to know me
You’ll know I hold you dear
You’ll understand my feelings
You’ll understand my fear

One day we’ll be together
One day you’ll realise
You’ll know there is no other
You are the reason for my life

That’s why I wait outside your room
That’s why I walk two steps behind
That’s why I listen at your door
One day I’ll see inside your mind

And when you come to know me
You’ll know I hold you dear
You’ll understand my feelings
You’ll understand my fear

One day you will betray me
You’ll cut me like a knife
Although there is no other
You are the reason for my life

That’s why I’m running to your room
So you can leave your past behind
That’s why I’m breaking down your door
So you can see inside my mind

And now you know what I know
You’ll know I held you dear
You’ll understand my anger
You’ll know you’ve hurt me here

I know the truth about you
I see no humour here
I know the truth about you
You’ve made your feelings clear

I know you go behind my back
I know you tell lies to my face
I know you’re seeing someone else
Your behaviour’s a disgrace

I know you go behind my back
I know you tell lies to my face
I know you’re seeing someone else
Your behaviour’s a disgrace

I know you go behind my back
I know you tell lies to my face
I know you’re seeing someone else
Your behaviour’s a disgrace

Don’t deny your feelings
Don’t deny your feelings for me
Don’t deny your feelings
Don’t deny your feelings for me

Don’t deny your feelings for me
Track Name: Supervillains
With my evil genius and your cruel charm
We’ll make the perfect team
With my love for chaos and your need to harm
and an elaborate scheme, we’ll be…

Supervillains
Supervillains with a deadly plan
Supervillains
We’ll hold the world in our hands

My eloquent insults and criminal mind
Will complement my callousness
My vulgar millions attracting our kind
Controlled with your hypnotic kiss

Your effortless glamour and close-fitting clothes
Will get the public on our side
But we’ll steal their money and destroy their homes
And in our underground lair we’ll hide. We’ll be…

Supervillains
Supervillains with a deadly plan
Supervillains
Holding the world in our hands
We’ll indulge our megalomania
We’ll take over the world

Two hearts, one goal
One world, controlled
World peace, on hold
(while we enjoy the spoils of our crimes)

Two minds, one thought
One world, distraught
Hard lessons, well taught
(as we enjoy the spoils of our crimes)

Supervillains
Supervillains with a deadly plan
Supervillains
Holding the world in our hands
Supervillains
The population will obey
Supervillains
Or we hit them with the death ray
We’ll indulge our megalomania
We’ll take over the world
We’ll take over the world
