Track Name: Strange To Me
STRANGE TO ME
I’m free, all I can be
But the truth is not…it’s not what it seems
As usual, I say no more, I lock the door
And throw away the key
But later on I’m back
I hope that I can see
But these days…are strange to me
These days are strange to me…
No matter what I do or say, it’s still very strange to me
A call to arms
Getting called out
But I can’t see
What are they talking about?
There’s too many places…and too many phases
Too many faces…I guess I’ll see you around
I’ll find you in another town, maybe we’ll sit down
And then we’ll talk about
No matter what I do or say, it’s still very strange to me
Maybe we’ll walk around
Maybe I’ll remember how I felt
Maybe you’ll remember how you felt about me…
But these days are strange to me
No matter what I do or say, there’s a feeling around, it won’t go away
Tomorrow’s another day, maybe it’ll go away.
Track Name: Waiting For Tomorrow
WAITING FOR TOMORROW
I got pulled over, when I was walking to Reno
The cop asked me why I wasn’t driving
He didn’t ask me, if I needed a ride
He just drove away and didn’t even say goodbye
(chorus)
I haven’t lost faith, I haven’t lost faith
‘Cause I’m still waiting for tomorrow
I got pulled over, when I was walking to Bricktown
Cop stood still and stared me in the eye
He wanted to change my life
But I wouldn’t let him
I just took that look and bounced it straight into the sky
(chorus)
I’m always getting pulled over
I’m always getting asked why
I can’t walk the line
(chorus)
Track Name: Day and Night
DAY AND NIGHT
You and me, we should be, together day and night…
This is the story of a boy and girl, a story that you’ve heard more than several times
The first time that they met, they immediately fell in love right when they locked eyes
But there’s something in the way, something different each and and every time
First time its distance, second time its time
Third time it’s another guy
You and me, we should be, together day and night…
Hey now, how’s the weather? Do you want to be together?
In each other’s thoughts all the time
Just you and me and me and you, that’s how it’ll always be
No other girls…no other guys
It seems like forever that I have walked alone, not feeling any pain, not feeling any joy
One day you burst through the door
And you shook me to the core
You and me, we should be, together day and night…
Always face to face, never face the truth, but never really lie
It’s the same old thing, something ruins it every single time
You and me, we should be, together day and night…
Track Name: Start of Something Good
START OF SOMETHING GOOD
You’re beaten. You beat yourself. You beat me.
Used to hurt so bad.
But now, I can’t feel it. It’s no longer real
Anymore to me.
(chorus)
It’s the end of the beginning, it’s the beginning of the end
All I know, it’s the start of something good.
No doubt some things have changed, and other things remain
All I know it’s the start of something good.

I think you’d like, for me to crawl, across the floor
For you
I think you’d like, for me to scrawl, across the wall,
“I NEED YOU”.
(chorus)

And it is right, to talk all night
But not to fight, about what’s not real

You’re beaten. You beat yourself. You beat me.
Used to hurt so bad.
But now, I can’t feel it. It’s no longer real
Anymore to me.
(chorus)
Track Name: This Time
THIS TIME
This time I’m not gonna turn away
When you put your hand out to me
This time I’m not gonna turn away
I’m gonna stay put and listen to what you say this time
I’ve been on the go for so long, avoiding getting stronger
There’s nothing left for me to say
You’re all right, and I’m all wrong
But in your silence I can hear all your voices
We all see, and we all hear my bad choices
But its great to realize that youre all there beside me this time
I only hope that I can pay you all back someday
Things are looking just a little bit better
It’s been hard, but its ok…its ok
I’ve been on the go for so long, avoiding getting stronger
There’s nothing left for me to say
You’re all right, and I’m all wrong
But its ok…
Track Name: The Long Way
THE LONG WAY
I asked you a question
You didn’t know the answer
You got so defensive, so defensive
Don’t just say anything
Make it make sense
Don’t be dense

Walk the straight and narrow
If its not to your liking
Then take the long way, take the long way…
Don’t just say anything
Make it make sense
Don’t be so dense
Walk the straight and narrow
And if that way is not best
Then take the long way…
