Track Name: Always Waiting
In time, all things will pass,
Our lives, our problems, many years of broken glass.
The leaves fall from the trees.
The snow falls and I’m waiting on my bended knee.
Our memories fade away,
But I’m here, always waiting, whether you go or stay
With me, or me with you,
I’m always waiting for you.

And so on, and so forth,
I know you question what my love for you is worth.
It makes no sense in your brain.
In mine, I question what made me act so insane…ly
Adverb or adjective?
Be sure I’m waiting, patiently for you to live
With me, or me with you,
I’m always waiting for you,
It’s true, I’m waiting for you, it’s true,
I’m staying with you, it’s true, I’m waiting for you ooh, ooh, I’m waiting.

I’m begging you to stay.
I’ll make you happy day after day, after day,
After day, after day, after day, ‘cause I’m always thinking of you.
Track Name: Agree to Disagree
Some would say that silence is golden,
I tend to agree, at the perfect times,
Most days, I would rather be bombarded with songs and wine.
You know that imperfection leads to beauty,
Always have to play with the hand that’s dealt,
Countless possibilities deep down in this well.

Every single moment, we’re changing,
Still we’re taking comfort in familiar things.
The one that makes you right could just be wrong for me,
So let’s agree to disagree.

Talking all the time gets you nowhere,
Running far away, you‘ll be left behind.
Want a chance to learn what goes on inside your mind.
Sit here next to me, enjoy the silence,
Take all the time you need, address those evil thoughts,
Look deep down inside, find a love that you forgot.

Every single moment, we’re changing,
Will we find our comfort from familiar things?
The one that does you wrong could just be right for me,
So let’s agree to disagree.
Track Name: Demons
Well I feel alright, will I screw it up tonight,
Oh, when I feel alright?
If I wait too long, will I still be strong,
Oh, if I wait too long?

My life’s a mess, make some room for happiness,
Lay bad habits down to rest.
I let my friends down just by not coming around
To make our beautiful sounds.

I’ve got a demon that’s lurking there,
Waiting for a time when I’m least prepared.
I’ve tried simply giving him the runaround.
Now I’ll turn away and put him down.

I feel so good, must be doing what I should.
I feel so good.
But my life’s a mess, I’ve gotta make some room for happiness,
Lay these bad habits down to rest.


I feel so good, must be doing what I should.
Track Name: Tell Me When the Rain
Tell me when the rain stops falling.
Tell me when the rain stops coming down.
Tell me when the rain stops falling and I tell you a joke
To keep you coming around.

Tried to keep the world from falling.
Tried to keep the world from spinning ‘round.
Gravity should keep us from falling,
As we wind our way to the ground.

Every minute is another chance to call on a friend.
Every second is another end.

Somewhere in our lives, there’s balance.
Sometime in the past, this all began.
Sometime in our lives there’s balance,
But I’m moving just as fast as I can.

They say the eye of the storm is peaceful,
You know that’s where I really want to be.
‘Cause if the eye of the storm is peaceful, then a peaceful eye
Is watching over me.


So why pretend?
In the end
The truth will bend.
The truth will bend
In the end.

Track Name: Take Me
When the game is done, and the marks all put away,
There’ll be a golden setting sun, and a fool turning away.
When the stories have all been told, and the race has been run
There’ll be a warm place to sleep and a fool on the run.

We will be.
Wait and see.

If the song in your heart doesn’t need an audience,
I wait outside the show, and listen from a distance.

We can be.
There’s no need to wait and see.

Your work is all done, and your clothes are hanging dry.
Look next to you, there’s no fool at your side.

Set your heart free.
Show your soul to me.
And when you set out for the sea,
Take me.
Track Name: I Woke Up
I woke up and I was thinking ‘bout you, baby ‘bout you,
And all those silly little things that we do.

Well I must’ve had you in my dreams,
‘Cause I’ve been thinking ‘bout you day and night.
And I’m feeling everything is green,
You know I’m never gonna see another red light.

And I’ve told you before
Each day, I’m loving you more
That’s the reason why…


Well I must’ve had this dream before,
‘Cause this place seems so familiar.
And babe, when you walk through my door,
I know you know I know you know my love is gonna fill you.

All those nasty, little things I’m gonna do to you!!!
Track Name: Beyond Good and Evil
I was thinking, oh about what we had,
It almost brought me to the edge.
Can’t help but drinking, now that I know it’s gone,
But I wanna try, oh I wanna try.

Sometimes we say more than we know we should
It’s things like these that can’t be understood.
We think we know what may sound right,
Say what we can before we say goodnight.

Started crying, oh ‘cause you cried too.
All this lying just ain’t good.
But when I kissed you, yeah it felt so right,
I wanna try, oh I wanna try.


Sat there waiting, waiting for nothing
Enjoying, beyond good and evil
Now the light, now the shade
There was only the day,
The lake, the noon, time without end

Track Name: Fell Asleep
I fell asleep before I wrote this down and dreamed all night.
And on my way back into sleepy-town, I heard the sights.
And to drown them out
I had to turn around
But the road was gone.

I flew up into the starry skies, around the moon.
Asked Mr. Rodgers if he had the time, he said, “half past June.”
And the day was good
In the neighborhood
And the night was gone.

Falling fast, the sky opened up to let me in.
Back in Washington, I’d had enough, but the time was thin.
So I stretched it out
With the music loud
And the fear was gone.
Track Name: Rated R
Sunday, next to my baby
Somebody save me from doing her wrong.
Lazy, your legs are shaky
No one can make me find it for myself.

Turn me upside down and I’ll turn you on.
Won’tcha turn around, see where you belonged, all along?

Spacing, outside it’s raining
The sunshine is waiting to kiss your forehead.
Blinding, the day is reminding
That everything has its timing and a proper place.


Snap your fingers and BANG, you’re gone
Are you coming ‘round again?
Just a day or two to feel this out, ‘til then…

Waiting, pay attention to rating,
Too much on the mating, it’s restricted access.
Track Name: Sweet Sweet Dreams
If there comes a time when you feel alone,
And there’s no one to turn to.
What have I done? Who have I wronged
To be feeling this way?
You’ve had a hard life, you’ve done all you could,
And you’ve used all the resources that you had,
There’s always more.
But only with faith are you able to draw
From that pool.

Now that they’re gone, we are still here,
Whenever you need us.
Love has no bounds, only our lives,
How brief they can be.
Now, why would I lie, and say when you die
That your spirit floats itself on up to heaven,
Forever with God?
Life is a game that no one can win, so rest in peace.

Oooh, sweet, sweet dreams, sweet, sweet dreams.
