Track Name: Heartful of Secrets
You gotta be bright
you gotta do everything just right
you gotta be modest and sublime
you gotta be smarter all the time
you gotta stand out from the rest
you gotta be the best you gotta ace your class

you gotta be relaxed
you gotta think before you act
you gotta drop your childish ways
you gotta grow up and act your age
you gotta dare to raise some hell
you gotta fuck the system, be a rebel

But there's this girl she's got strawberry breath
she's got a heartful of secrets deep down in her chest
so much I want but can not see
girl you know you really got me

you gotta be prepared
you gotta be reasonably aware
you gotta be mannered and correct
you gotta be nice and show respect
you gotta find love where it hides
it's gonna be true and bona fide

there's this girl she's got dance in her hair
she's got a luminous smile and a drop of sweat right there
she grants you power to forget
all the things that you regret

this girl she's got strawberry breath
she's got a heartful of secrets deep down in her chest
so much I want but can not see
girl you know you really got me
Track Name: No Love (featuring Kathrin)
No love
makes me empty like a bottle of beer
on friday night I saw you standing there

No love
makes me empty like a bottle of wine
what do you say, let's get together sometime

No love
makes me empty like a bottle of rum
why don't you call I know you have my number

No love
makes me empty like a bottle of booze
you've got nothing to win you've got nothing to loose

Our love
makes me empty like a bottle of beer
on friday night we never go nowhere

Our love
makes me empty like a bottle of wine
can't we just do something different sometime

Our love
makes me empty like a bottle of rum
I just call when I don't want you to come

Our love
makes me empty like a bottle of gin
you've got nothing to loose you've got nothing to win
Track Name: Dr. Doom 2 (Daughter of Doom)
How devious and brilliant ain't your scheme
you sneak into my bedroom and my dream
Now all I want is you my turtle dove
cause, holy macaroni, I'm in love!

Girl you know,
since I saw you at the picture show,
I got feelings that I can't control
but you feel nothing at all!

Girl, my time
spent at fighting your super crime
will be yours if you will be mine
I'll make everything fine

wo-o wo-o-o-o
wo-o wo-o-o-o
wo-o wo-o-o-o
wo-o wo-o

I'm sorry that I've put your dad jail.
a million times but he always gets away.
But I won't let you slip out of my hand,
Miss Doom say can I be your married man?

wo-o wo-o-o-o
wo-o wo-o-o-o
wo-o wo-o-o-o
wo-o wo-o

Girl I'm hooked
since I saw you in a comic book.
I like the way your spandex looks
I don't care if you're a crook

Girl it seems,
since I saw you at the silver screen,
I know that you are the one for me
It's how it's meant to be

wo-o wo-o-o-o
wo-o wo-o-o-o
wo-o wo-o-o-o
wo-o wo-o
Track Name: Pop Love (featuring the pop love choir)
saturdays we brace ourselves
tonight there will be dancing all night long
keep our fingers crossed for the DJ
cause there is a chance she might just play our song
Our bellies are full of butterflies
but there's nothing that could possibly go wrong
it's just another magic night
when everything they play is a sing-a-long

rock'n'roll was a reckless lover
hip hop pimpled you all over
I don't know if you can tell from what you've heard
but I think pop love might just save the world

rock'n'roll was a reckless lover
hip hop pimpled you all over
I don't know if you've guessed from what you've heard
but we all know pop love might just save the world
Track Name: Bizarro World
Last night i found a place where I was pretty
I felt beautiful, and my love was with me
and we danced to all the sweetest songs I've ever heard
yeah I liked it there, in Bizarro World

Everyone in there was just as cute as you
and just as nice and I was happy too.
Last night I found a place where I could be a girl
and I liked it there, in Bizarro World

Hold it boy, you know it's just a dream
you're not as lucky as it seems
There is no way that you'll be free
There is no "sure" just "maybe"
There is no love that's bona fide
There is no dance that lasts all night
There is noone with pretty eyes
There's no invincible disguise

Last night i found a place where I was pretty
I felt beautiful, and my love was with me
and we danced to all the sweetest songs I've ever heard
yeah I liked it there, in Bizarro World

Hold it boy, you know it's just a dream
you're not as lucky as it seems
There is noone who'll sing along
There is no meaning to your song
There is no meaning to your words
There's no such thing as Bizarro World
Track Name: Lionheart
Hold the hand of this boy
he's afraid of the dark
he's scared of dogs and
scared of birds
he's afraid of words
well, you can't know what they mean

Hold the hand of this boy
he's afraid of the dark
he's scared of cops and
scared of cars
he's afraid of grown-ups
and what he's growing up to be
some grownups can be mean

You're just a scared boy who had lots of sorrows
you feel bad boy and you will tomorrow
you're so impatient boy I've got to tell you what I've heard
that a lionheart is hard to earn

Hold the hand of this boy
he's afraid of the dark
he's scared of boys and
scared of girls
he's afraid of love
'cause love is devils work

Hold the hand of this boy
he's afraid of the dark
he's scared of kisses and
scared of hugs
he's afraid of everything
that could could make him want to feel something
'cause those feelings are to real for him

you're just a little boy who's heart is central
and you can race from cool to sentimental
don't be scared boy and you'll learn from your mistakes
a lionheart is bound to break

A la-la-la-la-lionheart to be a la-la-la-la-lionheart
You'll be a la-la-la-la-lionheart

Hold the hand of this boy
he's afraid of the dark
he's scared of dogs and
scared of birds
he's afraid of words
well, you can't know what they mean

Hold the hand of this boy
he's afraid of the dark
he's scared of cops and
scared of cars
he's afraid of grown-ups
and what he's growing up to be

Hold the hand of this boy
he's afraid of the dark
he's scared of boys and
scared of girls
he's afraid of love
'cause love is devils work
and lovers words can hurt

You're just a scared boy who had lots of sorrows
you feel bad boy and you will tomorrow
you're so brave boy, even if you're not that smart
you should know one thing, you're a lionheart

You're a lionheart!
A lionheart!

oh to be a lionheart!
Track Name: No More Two-Chord Love Songs
A kiss as sweet as apple sauce
You got a little thing going down with me
we're calling it a fling but we love like crazy

I can make two eggs turn into oh so many pancakes
and I'll serve you them for breakfast
with all different kinds of jam
and maybe we'll have icecream
or some whipped cream to go with them
but baby, I'll suffice
with just your creamy skin
You got a little thing going down with me
we're calling it a fling but we love like crazy
You got a little thing going down with me
we're calling it a fling but we love like crazy

and I can make two chords turn into oh so many lovesongs
and I'll write them in my bed
inside my head when you're asleep
and I'll play them in the garden
and I'll sing them in the shower
I'll record them in my heart
'cause I know that we don't play for keeps
You got a little thing going down with me
we're calling it a fling but we love like crazy
You got a little thing going down with me
we're calling it a fling but we love like crazy

but it's hard to sing when you are out of tune and
out of love and luck and
everything is upside down
you watch those smiles turn into frowns
and everything is downside up
please someone tell me to shut up
