Track Name: Let You Down (Again)
you were the one
who helped me survive
i barely knew your name
you were the one
who helped me divide
my heart from feeling pain
when you are here
i have to smile
i love your every word
you are the one
you are the only one
i could ever want to love
i can see now i can see you
you're everything to me
i can see now i can see you
you're everything to me
and i'll never let you down
and i'll never let you down
Track Name: Antony & Clepatra
i saw your smile
i touched your hand
i knew you would not understand
my fervent plea
your troubled mind
our lives filled with desire
but of a different kind
a dying dream just leaves a mystery
a perfect love was never meant to be

i saw your eyes
and hidden dreams
unveiling things they could not mean
i gave my heart
i watched it fall
our star-crossed love
knew you would kill me after all

a dying dream just leaves a mystery
a perfect love was never meant to be
Track Name: It's All A Dream
i've heard it all before
"they just walk through the door
and then you know"
the sparkle and the gleam
i know it's all a dream
i can't let go
then you walk in the room
and change my frowns to smiles
then you walk in the room

up on the silver screen
at home on my t.v.
i'm fed romance
i walk into the street
i seek but never see
my perfect chance

then you walk in the room
and turn my frowns to smiles
then you walk in the room

now every single chance i have
comes falling back on you
now every single chance i have
comes falling back into the arms of you

please say you're dreaming of
embracing all the love
my heart can show
i know it's all a dream
and stupid though it seems
i can't let go

then you walk in the room
and turn my frowns to smiles
then you walk in the room
Track Name: Cool Shoes
that's it, i've heard too much to stay
i think you're crazy anyway
good thing i only like your taste in shoes
it's not like i enjoy your smile
it's not like i look in your eyes
and ever feel more than a thing or two

and i don't know why
why i even try
to ever say goodbye
when i come back again
there's something in your eyes
i wish i could despise
but every single night
it lures me right back in

it's cool, i'll be o.k.
i mean, i don't like you anyway
i only ever thought you wore cool shoes

it's such a shallow thing to say
i love it when you look that way
but i'm too weak to leave you behind
i guess you're my eye candy babe
but somehow i must lose the taste
you're gonna make a mess of my mind

it's cool, i'll be o.k.
i mean, i don't like you anyway
i only ever thought you wore cool shoes
Track Name: I Want You
it's just the same old song
feels like i've written it far too long
now every word's cliche
it's hard to sound cool when you're trying to say

i could be happy alone
i've rarely been lonely before
but i'd rather you walk through that door
cause i want you

seems such a simple thing
maybe there's just something wrong with me
something my eyes won't see
don't worry baby i still believe

i could be happy alone
i've rarely been lonely before
but i'd rather you walk through that door
cause i want you
Track Name: I Guess It's My Sweet Time
there's something i forgot to say
you know that i still miss the way
the way you used to
you always used to
it takes me back to that day
and all the clever things you'd say
you know i miss you
i may always miss you
i guess it's my sweet time to fall
it's not half bad at all
it's not half bad at all

i think of all the games we'd play
and how you'd hush those words away
you know that killed me
you always killed me
it's funny it should be this way
wasn't i the one who'd say
i could never love you
and now it's me that needs you

i guess it's my sweet time to fall
it's not half bad at all
it's not half bad at all
Track Name: Easy
kiss me caress me hold me possess me anytime
the race is run the game is won i'll walk the line
oh it scares me just how easily you make me smile
every inch away from you is still the longest mile

when i say i love you
it's so easy to say i love you

i never dreamt that you could be all this and more
and i've never felt this way this way this way before
i could crawl into your arms and waste a million lives
it's a miracle i've found someone who holds me right

when i say i love you
it's so easy to say i love you
Track Name: The Distance Between Us
do you love me, do you need me
do you want me when i'm not there
do you miss me, are you ever thinking of me
do you want me when i'm not there

i open the door and i see your face drop
you think so much and love so little
it's just like before, maybe i've seen your love stop
one too many times

do you love me, do you need me
do you want me when i'm not there
do you miss me, are you ever thinking of me
do you want me when i'm not there

s'always something new
can't you just forgive me
laugh at my flaws and find me charming
we don't need to talk, just shut up and kiss me

do you love me, do you need me
do you want me when i'm not there
do you miss me, are you ever thinking of me
do you want me when i'm not there

do you love me
do you need me
do you miss me

i spent my whole life thinking of you
never mind what i intended to do
waited my whole life just for you
now i don't know where to find you
the distance between us hides you
i can't stay here wishing you loved me too
Track Name: Don't Die Before Your Day
just stop while you're ahead
you can't pretend
it's all so hopeless
i'm sure you aren't yet dead
it's in your head
you still can help it

c'mon

you act like you're so tired
like you have tried
and now you're over it
as if you can't go on
like you're so done
like you're so broken

c'mon

just get up again
just get up again
while your heart's still beating
it's not over yet
so shake your regrets
while your heart's still beating

i hate seeing you this way
your clouds so gray
your spirit sinking
don't die before your day
before you say
all that you're thinking

c'mon
Track Name: The Incurables
you can't tell me i'm wrong anymore
i feel the hope in my heart
cause people like me we're suckers for it
built to laugh and to love and just believe

we're hopeless it seems
lives lost in our dreams
incurable, at best, i guess

you feel love is a dream, i agree
real as i've felt or have seen
cause people like me we're suckers for it
wear our hearts on our sleeves and just believe

we're hopeless it seems
lives lost in our dreams
incurable, at best, i guess

you say i'm wasting my life in love with all that i find
but how can you wake up each day and live without losing your mind
except to be chasing a dream however inconceivable it seems
i guess i'd rather just be happy and incurable
Track Name: Heroine
i've tried to walk away
i've tried to let you go
but there's a hole that can't be filled
deep in my soul

oh how i need you so
i live to make you glow
is it a sign?
Lord, am i blind?
i just don't know

i'm trying to find me someone
i'm trying to find me someone
i'm trying to find me someone
i can love
Track Name: People Love Money More Than People
people love money more than people
we call it exploitation
but you don't ever have to feel guilty
we've got rationalization

i heard that you just paid Jose a dollar
then turned around and charged me six
you say "hey man that's capitalist economics"
well, i'd rather be a communist

when the Savior of man
comes to earth again
i doubt he'll be applying at I.B.M.
and i don't think he'll be asking
for stock options
he'll just go and feed his hungry friends
Track Name: Lovesick
there was a day, though it seems long ago
our love burned with the glow
of every summer sun
a brighter day, when i could not resist
the bliss of your sweet kiss
i dreamt you were the one

i'm not sad and i don't want you back
i just miss the feeling of being in love

it used to be, you held me in your arms
caressed me with your charms
and swore you'd never stray
and just like me, i built my world for you
i stuck to you like glue
but that was yesterday

i'm not sad and i don't want you back
i just miss the feeling of being in love

and in the end, we split with but a yawn
the spark of love long gone
two hearts apart again
goodbye my friend, i've nothing left to say
i'm sick of love today
but i'll dive right back in

i'm not sad and i don't want you back
i just miss the feeling of being
i miss the feeling of being in love
Track Name: Another Cold Morning
it's no longer enough to lull myself to sleep
to a perfect tune or gorgeous melody

sometimes i crave you next to me
to have and hold me tight
i crave you next to me
to keep me through the night

i never thought i could feel this alone
i never thought i feel so cold
i crack a smile and i cast a dream
to feel your warmth wash over me

sometimes i crave you next to me
to have and hold me tight
i crave you next to me
to keep me through the night

but as i wake feel no one
i peel my eyes to find you gone
Track Name: It's All A Dream (Nightmare Version)
i've heard it all before
"they just walk through the door
and then you know"
the sparkle and the gleam
i know it's all a dream
i can't let go
then you walk in the room
and change my frowns to smiles
then you walk in the room

up on the silver screen
at home on my t.v.
i'm fed romance
i walk into the street
i seek but never see
my perfect chance

then you walk in the room
and turn my frowns to smiles
then you walk in the room

now every single chance i have
comes falling back on you
now every single chance i have
comes falling back into the arms of you

please say you're dreaming of
embracing all the love
my heart can show
i know it's all a dream
and stupid though it seems
i can't let go

then you walk in the room
and turn my frowns to smiles
then you walk in the room
Track Name: Don't Be So Cynical
i used to dream about you
until hope walked out my door
feared i'd have to live without you
i'm not worried anymore

when you walked into my life
i fell for the very first time
from the start it felt so right
when you walked in to my life

there were so many before you
some left relief some left a bruise
some even lit a spark within me
but not the fire i feel around you

when you walked into my life
i fell for the very first time
from the start it felt so right
when you walked in to my life
Track Name: Hardly Perfect But Worth It
no, it really shouldn't be so hard
careless words and doubtful hearts
don't help a love survive
i'm sick of saying "i just don't know",
"i need some time", "let's take it slow"
we know it isn't right

but i want you to know
that i love you but still i must go
too much to explain

yeah, we were hardly perfect babe
but it was worth it just the same
i loved my time with you
don't be bitter about the past
don't be bummed it didn't last
i'll never forget you

and i want you to know
that i love you but still i must go
too much to explain

and i've wanted to say
that i love you but still i can't stay
too much to explain
Track Name: Sometimes I Think About You
sometimes i think about you
as i lie awake at night
and how my life without you
never seems to turn out right
i can close my eyes and find you
searching for someone to hold
and i'm sneaking up behind you
but the morning leaves me cold
so come what may
maybe fate will find its way
and i'll be yours and you'll be mine
another day

do you ever think about me?
do i ever cross your mind?
do you ever fear without me
there are smiles you'll never find?
every other face seems faceless
all my eyes can see is you
every other kiss seems tasteless
since your red lips left me blue

so come what may
maybe fate will find its way
and i'll be yours and you'll be mine
another day
Track Name: I've Seen The Light
woke up this morning and something in me had changed
woke up this morning and something had been rearranged
you see i went to bed the night before
not realizing what your love was for
but then i woke up this morning
needing you more and more

just say you'll stay and i'll cherish every single day
we'll do the things we've dreamt of all our lives

i've seen the light in you though darkness reigns
so crawl into my arms and ease your pains
i've seen the light in you
so babe don't let it die
Track Name: Wishing Well
i never saw my name in lights
until i looked into your eyes
your marquee shown it's love so bright
it made me faint to realize

i know you say you'll stay forever
but i don't have the love you hope to find
i waited weeks, stayed by your side
bettered my best, i tried my try
but came up shallow, left low and dry
i never felt that burn inside

i know you say you'll stay forever
but i don't have the love you hope to find
i wish i felt the way you do to feel a love so true

now when we meet it's all hellos
we say we're friends, but we both know
i bruised your pride, i crushed your soul
i wished you well, then turned to go

i know you swear you'll stay forever
i don't have the love you hope to find

i wish i felt the way you do to feel a love so true
Track Name: My Better Half
i've yet to find
the better half of me
i feel so incomplete
i've searched around
to find my missing piece
down love's long lonely street
i know one day i'll see your face
i'll feel your touch and warm embrace
yet still i feel so lonely while i wait

i used to dream
i'd find a love divine
to last me through the years
but now it seems
that this old heart of mine
will waste away in tears

i know one day i'll see your face
i'll feel your touch and warm embrace
yet still i feel so lonely while i wait

you make me whole
but are you real
you're in my head
but i can't feel
your kiss upon my cheek
as rain falls down on me
Track Name: Butterflies
someday when we're all gray
i will turn to you and say
we're still just kids at heart babe
take my hand, let's run away

fifty years spent by your side
we've shed our tears, we've smiled our smiles
you know babe if i could
i wouldn't change a single day

now our bones are old and frail
now our lips are dry and shriveled
but i must confess your kiss your kiss
still gives me butterflies

someday when we're all gray
i will turn to you and say
now our bones are old and frail
now our lips are dry and shriveled
but i must confess your kiss your kiss
still gives me butterflies
Track Name: Future Classic
it's you and me
against the world
so let the games begin
my partner in crime
my lover in time
future classic
you and me
