Track Name: Return Call
I’ve never seen such beauty; I’ve never felt such pain
Tell me is this worth the risk
And I keep waiting for it, for the moment to hit you
When your realize that I exist

But is it all just the same to you
Is this only a game and…

Can I call you, will you call if I leave a message (if I leave a message)
Will you keep me hangin’ on…
Waiting for your return call

Your grace I remember, still I am the pretender
Come on make this real for me
Girl don’t lead me on now, we can find it somehow
Just tell me that you’re coming for me

For you are all I’m waiting here
If you’d just walk through that door and…

Can I call you, will you call if I leave a message (if I leave a message)
Will you keep me hangin’ on…
My head says erase you but my heart won’t forget
And still I’m hangin’ on waiting for your return call
Hangin’ on your return call

I’m no fool and I’m not blind
But if you’d just taste these lips one time
Track Name: Around You
Take my words for what they’re worth; I’m just a suitor on your heels
Every breath you take on this earth, someone’s waiting for you to feel
What I want may be absurd, but I’m hoping I can appeal
To your senses for a turn at your heart, Come on let’s make a deal

This doesn’t need to be love or anything at all
I’m the hand, you’re the glove, I wonder if there’s a law against
Being co-dependent on the drug that you’ve become
Cause after you girl, I don’t need another one

Baby I’m not down… When I’m, when I’m around you
My feet never touch the ground, when I’m, when I’m around you

Take my words for what they’re worth, I just wanna be in your ear
So I can hear life on your terms and avoid all the things you fear
I don’t want much, just a touch of your hearts deepest desire
If you can find just enough belief in me girl, I will walk the wire

This doesn’t need to be love or anything at all
I’m the hand, you’re the glove, I wonder if there’s a law against
Being co-dependent on the drug that you’ve become
Cause after you girl, I don’t need another one

Baby I’m not down… When I’m, when I’m around you
My feet never touch the ground, when I’m, when I’m around you

Oh baby come on, (Aah Come On), come on yeah, (Aah Come On)
And let yourself feel good
Girl come on, come on now, you know, you know you should yeah
Come on, Come On, and give in to the absurd baby
Come on, Girl Come on, yeah, yeah, I’d give everything for just one word

Lada, ….

Baby you know I’m not down… When I’m, when I’m around you
My feet never touch the ground, when I’m, when I’m around you
Girl you know you’re lost and found… When I’m, when I’m around you
Track Name: Solitude
Everybody’s gone, Party’s over
Feels like it’s been too long
Running in the halls or under covers
Your laugh sounds just like a song

Everybody’s gone now, it’s just me and you
Girl I live for moments like this
When no one is around and we can show through
In glowing colors with each kiss
And there we go, there we go again…

Run the water, I’ll bring the candles
Baby my world stops every time you sing that tune
I never ever thought I’d ever be the man
To be happy lost in this solitude

Everybody knows now, exposed the secret
Baby you’re where I need to be
Your love is the crown surrounding my head
And I’m more real than I’ve ever been
And here we go, here we go again…

Run the water, I’ll bring the candles
Baby my world stops every time you sing that tune
I never ever thought I’d ever be the man
To be happy lost in this solitude

Time is the ghost when I’m alone with you…

Everybody’s gone now, It’s just me and you
I live for moments like this in our solitude…

Run the water, I’ll bring the candles
Baby my world stops every time you sing that tune
I never ever thought I’d ever be the man
To be happy lost in this solitude
Track Name: Expressions Changed
The show was great and she was beaming
One of the better days to feel her breathing
Then something changed, something’s changed…

Her expressions changed, something’s deranged
If I could read her mind, follow the signs
Would I be the road map to future days
If I could see my world through her eyes

Did I say something wrong, Touch a bad place
In an instant the passion was gone
Running in some kind of maze and then… Something changed…

Her expressions changed, something’s deranged
If I could read her mind, follow the signs
Would I be the road map to future days
If I could only see my world through her eyes

Well ok, so she wants me again
But for how long now
She’s driving… driving me insane
But who will I be once she’s changed
Again… and again, again…

Her expressions changed, something’s deranged
If I could read her mind, follow the signs
Would I be the road map to future days
If I could only see my world through her eyes
Track Name: Hey Love
Hey Love

Hey Love, how you doin’?
I know it’s hard sometimes to get through it
But I know you know it’s just another day
Living your life someone else’s way

Hey Love, Why’d you do it?
Why’d you sacrifice yourself for their approving?
I know it’s hard to admit it
And everyday you get closer to leavin’
But wait a minute…

Hey Love, where you goin’?
Everything you’ve been searching for is coming true now
Hey love, wouldn’t you know it?
Mr. Sun is comin’ round for you

Hey love, it’s not too late
To grab a hold of what’s been slippin’ through your fingers
You hold the key, now open the gate
And I’ll be there to push you through it should it linger

Hey love, where you goin’?
Everything you’ve been searching for is coming true now
Hey love, wouldn’t you know it?
Mr. Sun is comin’ round for you
Track Name: Home
Gina called me yesterday
Said, “Hey man we miss you! When ya comin’ back home?
The purple sky is hangin’ low and we all were wondering…
Can you feel the Santa Anna’s blow?”

She said, “Tell me why you had to go? What are you trying to prove?
Your little sis, your baby sis needs you at home.”
I said, “It’s never easy leaving home
And even harder leaving you alone.
But this is something I must do on my own.”

Cause there’s a road I must follow now.
No matter how the Santa Anna’s blow
Until I turn these dreams to gold, Santa Barbara is not my home

You see, the road is such a lonely place
And it would sure do me good to see your face.
But I’ll hold on to the good things I’ve known.
And I know that you don’t understand
But it’s time that I was my own man
And let my passions take me where I must go

Cause there’s a road I must follow now.
No matter how the Santa Anna’s blow
Until I turn these dreams to gold, Santa Barbara is not my home

Tell Papa I’m not mad, one day he’ll understand
That I’m just a different type of man than he knows
One day I’ll find the perfect road and I’ll turn this music into gold
That’s when I’ll make my way back home
I’ll find my way back home

Cause there’s a road I must follow now.
No matter how the Santa Anna’s blow
Until I turn these dreams to gold, Santa Barbara is not my home
Track Name: Where Do They Go
Do you remember when we were kids?
Playing jesters in the court yard
Guinevere I was your prince
We thought that life would never be hard
We thought those days would never end

Days went on, you were my prom queen
The years to come, they seemed so sure
Endless times we planned and schemed
There was nothing we could want more
We swore those days would never end

So where do they go
The years that sustained us
Kept us alive, kicking and famous
Where do we go
Where the past can claim us and never let us go

It seems we’ve made our own lives now
The time has long time lost us
But still those days made me so proud
memories never separate us
But I wish those days would come back again

So where do they go
The years that sustained us
Kept us alive, kicking and famous
Where do we go
Where the past can claim us and not let us go
Track Name: Driving Blind
I was a child once, still trying to figure the cost of age
I’ve been around the world once, seems my view still hasn’t changed
And I was in love once, but now it’s gone
I still remember the taste

Along the winding road we travel
Sometimes it’s hard to get traction on the gravel
From the second we take a breath, from the moment we open our eyes
We are driving blind, we’re driving blind

I was a grown up once, but then I quit the charade
I gave to charity once but, it was nicer getting paid
I was bent on the right thing once, now live from day to day
Who knows the right way?

Along the winding road we travel
Sometimes its hard to get traction on the gravel
From the second we take a breath, from the moment we open our eyes
We are driving blind, we’re driving blind, yeah, drive on…

Peer pressure, parental lectures
Right or wrong, how do you vote?
Life today seems to hold no structure
Get what you need from the internet to float your boat and…

Along the winding road we travel
Sometimes its hard to get traction on the gravel
From the second we take a breath, from the moment we open our eyes
We are driving blind
Track Name: Put Her Away
The morning comes too soon for his liking
Miles roll down and down like lighting
Prisoner of the road he’ll always be
Face after face he longs for substance
Night after night he waits for a chance
For what he believes is destiny

And he wonders if she’s heard his songs on the radio
And if the broken heart of a woman really knows

This profession ain’t no place for a lover
Endless hell when you can’t love another
But he’s married to his music and the chance to play
So, once again tonight, he’ll open up the back of his mind… And put her away

Time after times he’s tried to tell her
Night after night he’s tried to call her
But the signal always seems to fall
He never thought he’d ever break her heart
Of course he never thought he’d get this far
Now wonders was it worth it all

And he wonders if she’s heard his songs on the radio
And the broken heart of this man really shows

This profession ain’t no place for a lover
Endless hell when you can’t love another
But he’s married to his music and the chance to play
So, once again tonight, he’ll open up the back of his mind… And put
her away

Sometimes he thinks the time will come, when he’ll settle down
But he fears that when the time comes, she won’t be around
Track Name: Gone
Somehow we lost control, little lies became big cries
Such a shame to have to hide the pure and simple truth inside
When fear of others dictates your every action
Broken dreams can end up in traction

I wonder if she ever misses the truth we shared…

Gone is where she is, now lost is where I am
And somewhere out there is where we should have been
And gone is what we could have been

I’m still confused how something so strong could not hold on
The reasons why we spun away in my mind still sound wrong
Won’t someone tell me how two hearts with the same goal
Could completely fall away at the soul

And I wonder if she ever misses the warmth we shared...

Gone is where she is, now lost is where I am
And somewhere out there is where we should have been
And gone is what we could have been

Sometimes I fall to my knees and beg for her return
I tell myself, “This is just a lesson to learn”.
Either way, I don’t think I’ll get over the crash and yearn

Gone is where she is, now lost is where I am
And somewhere out there is where we should have been
And gone is what we could have been
Track Name: Last Goodbyes
I’ve given up looking for you
In every face in every car gone by
I’ve stopped listening for your voice
In the endless breaths of stranger’s sighs, I’m almost there…

I’m tired of not making it
Without your memories to get me by
And I’ve learned to live my years
On the edge of regret and land mines
And I’m just about there… Just one thing left

Say my last goodbyes, these are your last rights before I say my…
Say my last goodbyes, these are your last rights

You’ve held on for so long
I’d forgotten how to walk alone
You were embedded in my purpose
I could not breathe on my own
But now I’m there… one thing left

Say my last goodbyes, these are your last rights before I say my…
Say my last goodbyes, these are my new steps to a new life
Say my last goodbyes, Oh yea, These are your last rights

I thought I would fade without you but I’m still here
I thought fate would bring us together, but you’re not here

Say my last goodbyes, these are your last rights before I say my…
Say my last goodbyes, these are my new steps to a new life
This is my new life, Without you on my mind
This is my new life, start of a new life
Track Name: Back To Me
I’m breaking it down to simple reality
Now it makes so much sense to me, naiveté’ can make you such a freak
And all that you’ve done to me has only made me stronger, it no longer affects me
The painting’s so much clearer now that you are gone

I’m bringing it back to me
Say goodbye, memories subside, feeling no pain
Finally can recall my name and its good
Took some time yeah, but finally getting back to me

I’m breaking it down to all of the broken dreams
That used to flow like endless seas
But now I see they were only drowning me
The blind trust you found in me
Has now got eyes to see, it’s like I’ve finally learned to breathe
The painting’s so much clearer now that you’re gone

I’m bringing it back to me
Say goodbye, memories subside, feeling no pain
Finally can recall my name and its good
Took some time yeah, but finally getting back to me

It’s like fresh air to my lungs
Like fresh new sun on a rainy day
Now I’ve found a new love, one that takes no one
And I’ve finally learned to love myself today

I’m bringing it back to me
Say goodbye, memories subside, feeling no pain
Finally can recall my name and its good
Took some time yeah, but finally getting back to me
Track Name: New Life
Free… Horizons beckoning me
To bleed… Like watercolors to the sea
Time anymore… Means nothing to me
Cause I found the cure to what’s ailing me
So open the door and I’ll be on my way

Open road… Where are we today
Just me and the road finding my way
And I can feel it forming around me

It’s a brand new night with every mile
Everything’s changing before my eyes
And anger decayed brings peace of mind
As morning light finds new light, it’s a brand new life

Reasons… All fade away
My demons… Have all lost their way
In the rearview I see a smile, My God, is that my face?

It’s a brand new night with every mile
Everything’s changing before my eyes
And anger decayed brings peace of mind
As morning light finds new light, it’s a brand new life

What is faith but to believe it will be ok
I’m letting go of the wheel and trusting my fate, cause

It’s a brand new night with every mile
Everything’s changing before my eyes
And anger decayed brings peace of mind
As morning light finds new light, it’s a brand new life
Track Name: Expressions Changed (Reprise)
The show was great and she was beaming
One of the better days to feel her breathing
Then something changed, something’s changed…

Her expressions changed, something’s deranged
If I could read her mind, follow the signs
Would I be the roadmap to future days
If I could see my world through her eyes

Did I say something wrong, Touch a bad place
In an instant the passion was gone
Running in some kind of maze and then… Something changed…

Her expressions changed, something’s deranged
If I could read her mind, follow the signs
Would I be the roadmap to future days
If I could only see my world through her eyes

Well ok, so she wants me again
But for how long now
She’s driving… driving me insane
But who will I be once she’s changed
Again… and again, again…

Her expressions changed, something’s deranged
If I could read her mind, follow the signs
Would I be the roadmap to future days
If I could only see my world through her eyes
