Track Name: Summer Sun
SUMMER SUN – MATTHEW SHACALLIS

Verse 1
The summer sun shines bright today
Sad feelings gone away
You wish the sun was here to stay
If you could find a way
Pre Chorus
The sky is tumbling down
All over dark Newtown

Chorus
So let me understand you
‘Cause you are everything I need
Put my arms around you
‘Cause you are all I see

Verse 2
You never leave your phone at home
Spend half your life on Facebook
The world has changed and that’s real sad
Your music’s oh so bad.

Pre Chorus
The sky is tumbling down
All over dark Newtown
Chorus
So let me understand you
‘Cause you are everything I need
Put my arms around you
‘Cause you are all I see


(SOLO)

Pre Chorus
The sky is tumbling down
All over dark Newtown

Chorus
So let me understand you
‘Cause you are everything I need
Put my arms around you
‘Cause you are all I see
Track Name: Tell me Girl
TELL ME GIRL – MATTHEW SHACALLIS

Chorus
Tell me girl
What you want
Can’t break free from your spell

Verse 1
Baby tell me, what I could have said
‘Cause I don’t, think I understand
And I know you want me gone
So leave me all alone

And it may, take a while to mend
Though it seems, this’ll never end
And the days keep going by
And all you do is cry

Pre Chorus
And I can’t find
The words I long to say to you
I can’t hide
These feelings that I feel
I feel for you

Chorus
So tell me girl
What you want
Can’t break free from your spell

Verse 2
Wake up, lying on my bed
Go outside, try and clear my head
And if you could read my mind
Then you’d know how I feel

Your love, is driving me insane
Look outside, all I see is rain
And I don’t know just how long
That I can carry on

Pre Chorus
And I can’t find
The words I long to say to you
I can’t hide
These feelings that I feel
I feel for you

Chorus
So tell me girl
What you want
Can’t break free from your spell

Bridge
And I don’t want to let you down
I’ve tried all I can
I guess that words speak louder

Pre Chorus
And I can’t find
The words I long to say to you
I can’t hide
These feelings that I feel
I feel for you

Chorus x2
So tell me girl
What you want
Can’t break free from your spell
Track Name: Nothing to Show
NOTHING TO SHOW – MATTHEW SHACALLIS

Verse 1
Out on my own
Where The music flows

I’ve Spent all my cash
Nothing to show
Empty handed
Where should I go?

Debts are closin’ in
I don’t think I can get away

I’ve spent all my cash
Nothing to show
empty handed
Where should I go?

Chorus
And I know what you want to say so
So save it ‘cause I’ve made my mistakes
There’s no, turning back
‘Cause I can’t, change the past

Verse 2
Starting to slew
My payments are due

How can people live like this?
When I think about it
I get so pissed

Interest rates so high
Draining us of everything

I’ve spent all my cash
Nothing to show
Empty handed,
Where should I go?

Chorus

Bridge
And I, don’t know
If we’re gonna make it out of here
And all, we can do
Is work so hard
To break free

Chorus x2
Track Name: Do You Love Me
DO YOU LOVE ME – MATTHEW SHACALLIS

Verse 1
Girl can’t you understand
I want you bad
And if you leave me now
You’ll leave me sad

Chorus
Do you love me?
Do you need me?
Do you love me.
Do you love me?
Do you need me?
BABE!

Verse 2
You look so fine tonight
Your black boots on
You wear that dotted dress
So short I’ll cry

Chorus
Do you love me?
Do you need me?
Do you love me.
Do you love me?
Do you need me?
BABE!

Verse 3
You never say that much
You don’t need words
I look into your eyes
My heart beats faster

Chorus
Do you love me?
Do you need me?
Do you love me.
Do you love me?
Do you need me?
BABE!
Track Name: Reach The Stars
REACH THE STARS – MATTHEW SHACALLIS

Verse 1
I, I need you now
You know it’s true
I’ll come back to you

And I, I see you in my dreams
It hurts me to pretend
‘Cause every dream has to end

Chorus
So let me into your life
Reach the stars tonight

Verse 2
I, I can’t think
Of anything but you
And all the things that you do

And I, I don’t understand
Why you can’t choose
Guess I don’t mean much to you

Chorus x2
So let me into your life
Reach the stars tonight
