Track Name: Something in the Water
Last night you said there’s something in the water
In your sleep
I can’t recall the last time
You said something so deep
So I tried to wake you up
You’ve been sleeping so long and it’s time to own up

To all the crimes and all the girls
With broken hearts in a breaking worlds
And all the places water goes
And all the songs with words nobody knows

Today you were staring out the window
At the sky
And I can’t recall the last time
You looked me in he eye
With your heart you used to speak
How I long for the day
When you’ll finally speak

To all the crimes and all the girls
With broken hearts in broken worlds
And all the places water goes
And all the songs with words nobody knows

To all the books we read aloud
And money made that didn’t make us proud
And all the life the water holds
All that’s lost each day nobody knows
Track Name: So Far...
Yesterday, yesteryear
Yes indeed those were hard times my dear
But remember, do you remember
How perfect they could be too?

That was then. Things will never
Be that way again
So just look on baby
Breathe it in now
That curved crooked path brought you here somehow

You’ll say,,
That so far this is the furthest I’ve ever been
So far this is the furthest I’ve ever been

Close your eyes, say goodnight
To the things that you couldn’t make right
For it’s better, so much better
To think about your bed tonight

The future, will mean nothing
If you’re not here
So just look on baby
Breathe it in now
Those days you’re awaiting they will come soon somehow

You’ll say,,
That so far this is the furthest I’ve ever been
So far this is the furthest I’ve ever been
Track Name: Better With You
I love you - so much
It’s hard to be away
I miss you – my love
But I’ll be coming home… soon

Every time I go away you’re on my mind
And everything I see makes me wish you were by my side

The stars would be a little more bright
The ocean a deeper shade of blue
Even of the tropics
Would be better baby
With you

I want you – with me
More than words can say
Yes it’s true – my love
I’ll come home to you… soon
Track Name: Originals
You need a break from all the energy it takes
To keep yourself from feeling
And you paint your face
Cause you’re afraid of the disgrace
You think you’d be revealing

Make no mistake, there’s more heartache for the fake
In all the safest places
They do not sleep, and the drugs are all too weak
And only make them sicker

So release your things
And then grab hold of the wings
Of a bird that will help you learn to fly

We are originals and so much more than copies
Where did all our wonder go?
We are originals and so much more than copies
Don’t be afraid to let it show?

So say what you mean before it’s too late to come clean
And you yield a lifeless harvest
Make sure you know - about every seed you sow
So that you can keep them growing

So hurry back,
Please hurry back my friend
Before we lose the things we love in you
Track Name: The Time Has Come
And so your breath’s in the air
I feel it everywhere
Winters water’s coming up out through the ground
It’s alive and moving to the sound

You know I’ve waited so long
And I haven’t been that strong
But the time has come
And you’re right here

And so I’ll try to let it show
Because I know that you don’t know
Just how much I remember
Of our warm days together
And how I hope you’ve survived the cold
Track Name: Juxtaposition
Something deep inside me
Tells me to leave you be
But something even deeper
Is reaching out for you

Why do I always linger
Whenever you’re around
I try my best to hide it
This longing in my soul

If you get any closer
I fear you’d break my heart
If you get any further
We’d be too far apart

Something deep inside me
Tells me to let you go
But something even deeper
Just wants to let you know
Track Name: Pixelated
I’m not an angel
That’s not what they wanna hear
And I’m not a savior
But I tried to be that for you
And I don’t see the reason
For all the world has put you through
But I try

Pixelated black and white
Looks to me like grey

I’m not a vision
But someday it’s something I’ll have
I’ve little precision
But I always do what I can
And I don’t always know what’s right
But I can try to somehow draw a line
With time

Chorus

I’m not up to standard
And you know I fall through the cracks
I make bad decisions
but girls will be boys like that
And I can’t give you answers
Right now to easily satisfy you
Cause they wouldn’t be true

Chorus
Track Name: Give Me The World
I want you to know - the depths of my soul
And I want to find a place to unwind
From another day where I stood in one place
Torn up between what’s mine and what is owed to me

Give me the world
Don’t ask me to give back

I can’t get enough - of what I call love
Can’t be satisfied – can’t swallow my pride
I run through the trees - as fast as I can
Last time I could feel myself shed the blame that’s chasing me

Give me the world
Don’t ask me to give back

I can’t seem to get
out of my head
I’m trying to speak
over my feelings
It’s getting so loud, a rioting crowd

How loud your soul speaks
When you think that nobody’s listening
Give me the world
Don’t ask me to give
Give me the world
Don’t ask for nothing
Give me the world
Don’t ask me to give back
Track Name: Talk of the Town
I wouldn’t tell a single soul, but I’ll tell you
Only if you promise me that it stops right here
I know you’ll be the better man a promise you’ll keep
This secret that is safe with you was not safe with me

Johnny knows a thing or two since he’s been around
Longest of the guys at work who keep him quite proud
And now he has a story that he just can’t leave out
Besides the guys know better than to spread it around

Chorus:
This town just like the other
Has tales you will uncover
Cause everyone knows everything
About people they “know”
Only through talking
The way they’ll talk about you

The ladies count on Sandy Jones to be in the know
When they’re bored and need a lift they know where to go
For 20 bucks, she’ll catch you up while dressing your hair
But what gets said in her salon must always stay there

Chorus

This town is full of people that don’t know in the least
The truth about people that they see every week
So when new families come to town to start a new age
Will you tell the stories that don’t let people change?
Track Name: Wild World
Now that i've lost every thing to you
You say you wanna start something new
And it's breaking my heart you're leaving
Baby I'm grievin'
But if you want to leave take good care
Hope you have a lot of nice things to wear
But then a lot of nice things turn bad out there

Oh baby baby it's a wild world
It's hard to get by just upon a smile
Oh baby baby it's a wild world
I'll always remember you like a child, girl

I've seen a lot of what the world can do
And it's breaking my heart in two
Because I never want ot see you sad girl
Don't be a bad girl
But if you want to leave take good care
Hope you make a lot of nice friends out there
But just remember there’s a lot of bad and beware

Ooh baby baby it's a wild world
It's hard to get by just upon a smile
Ooh baby baby it's a wild world
I'll always remember you like a child, girl

Baby I love you
But if you want to leave take good care
Hope you make a lot of nice friends out there
Just remember there’s a lot of bad and beware
