Track Name: Falling
Come and see my house
you can be my friend
we can talk about anything you want
as long as you'll stay with me

Make yourself at home
do you want to have a drink with me?
I'll pretend that I know you
we can work it out
just promise you'll stay with me

Feeling strange emotions
coming from you
I'm falling for you
think I'm falling for you

Can you read my face?
tell me how I remind you of someone else
I can be whoever I need to be
it's alright
as long as you'll stay with me

Take your time
don't leave yet
this is where you were meant to be
last chance for recovery
turn the lights out
promise you'll stay with me

Feeling strange emotions
coming from you
I'm falling for you
I'm falling for you

Come and see my house come and see me.
Track Name: The Other Side
Bad luck
you've been following me
for the longest time

I haven't broken a mirror lately
I stay away from ladders completely
I close my eyes
whenever I see a black cat in the street

but still I'm on the shit list
in a life that keeps me wondering
what's waiting on the other side for you and me? what's waiting on the other side of this life?

Sad song
always playing in my head
stupid radio

I haven't felt like myself at all
stuck inside these perfect walls
in a place that doesn't feel like home
but it's where I've got to be

Just passing time
trying to do the right thing
but I'm still wondering
what's waiting on the other side for you and me? what's waiting on the other side of this life?

Baby girl
I wish that I could pull us out
of the mess we're in

I am lost and you're afraid
we keep making the same mistakes
but I know one day
we're gonna find some peace of mind
in these crazy times

Still holding on
waiting for the lightning to strike me, wondering
what's waiting on the other side for you and me? what's waiting on the other side of this life?
Track Name: Comeback Kid
Got my feet back on the ground
my head's been spinning
since the day you let me down

Single-handed parachute
strangled by the cord
single-handed parachute
tangled by the cord

When will you be coming back
and where do I belong?

One more night out on the town
let's have a drink
we'll keep on drinking
'til we drown

'cause she don't want a part of me
how can I let go?
if she don't want a part of me
how can I let go?

It takes time to repair yourself
no matter what you say
you're living on the fence
waiting for the one who got a way

When will you be coming back
and where do I belong?
Track Name: We Hang On
We are souls divided
over the paths we travel on
no one here to guide us
so we depend on intuition

In our time together
there will be love and there will be loss
we will outlast the disappointment
and we will carry on

We hang on..

We are souls divided
under our flags and under our gods
some will be misguided
some may be right
and some may be wrong

But we will stick together
searching for love
when all hope is lost
we will outlast the disappointment
and we will carry on

We hang on..

Same horizon
same blue sky
same illusions
same goodbyes

Hey mothers and daughters
Hey brothers and fathers
We hang on..
Track Name: A Memory
I've been watching for your trail
in shooting stars and satellites
so many places you could hide
in a universe like this

Where you and I are not alone
or so the story goes
I get the drift but there's still something missing..

When all you've got is a memory
all you've got is a memory.

I've been waiting for a sign
I'm analyzing every sound
and ray of light
the shapes of clouds
my dreams at night
almost think it's you, almost think it's you..

But all I've got is a memory
all I've got is a memory (I won't let you go)
all I've got is a memory (don't want to let you go).

I've been watching for your trail
I've been waiting for a sign
and I've been searching through the sky
so many stars to go
I wish you'd let me know..

All we've got is the memory
all we've got are the memories (don't let them go).
Track Name: La La La (It's Complicated)
New morning sun
look how far we've come
distant waves
carried us when we were young

Home by the sea
ageless memories
here and now
this is where we long to be
floating endlessly in..

La La La
La La La
it's not complicated
it's La La La

The train is at the station
the plane is on the runway now

New morning sun
look how far we've come
viral days
passed along to everyone

Lost in a breeze
of teenage symphonies
single cells
managing their privacy
ignoring history and..

La La La
La La La
it's so complicated
I need a La La La

The train is at the station
the plane is on the runway now.
Track Name: Halftime
It's the middle of your life
time to wake up from the dream
not as pretty
but at least you've still got me
And prayers for overtime..

You've been taken for a ride
nothing's ever what it seems
what a pity
and you kept your nose so clean
It's time to draw the line

You tried to find yourself
but now the feeling's gone
so you search for something else
to keep you moving on

Red light
Stop sign
Goodnight
Spotlight

Pleased to meet you
sorry I deceived you
I wish we could start over again

The hardest part of growing up
is thinking that you missed the cut
I wish we could start over again

Going down without a fight
but there's still time in your machine
face the shadow
of the one you used to be
And bring it back to life

You tried to find yourself
but now the feeling's gone
so you search for something else
to keep you moving on

Red light
Stop sign
Goodnight
Spotlight

Pleased to meet you
I'm sorry I deceived you
I wish we could start over again..
Track Name: Macho
You are my girl
you are my girl
quit messin' with those other guys
'cause you are my girl

You are my girl
you are my girl
don't let them tell you otherwise
'cause you are my girl

Give me one kiss
and make it stick
let's make out like we're enemies
and give me your kiss

Hot as the sun
hot as the sun
when we mix our chemistry
under the sun.

You are my girl
you are my girl
you are my girl

I am your man
yes I'm your man
no sugar-coated fantasy
but here I am

Hot as the sun
hot as the sun
when we mix our chemistry
we're hot as the sun.
Track Name: Not The One
You are not the one for me
and I am not the one for you
it's easy to see that it's not you - it's me
it's not you - it's me
it's so easy to see
that you are not the one for me.

I am not the one for you
and you are not the one for me
it's easy to see that it's not you - it's me
it's not you - it's me
it's so easy to see
that you and I were never meant to be.

Here we go..
Track Name: The Cult of Ken
My friend Ken
drives an ex-cop car
it's funny to watch all you people
freaking out on him

My friend Ken
drives an ex-cop car
and if you're high
well don't be shy
because he might be too

My friend Ken drives an ex-cop car

My friend Ken
plays a mean guitar
it's funny to watch all you girls
go crazy for him

My friend Ken
plays a mean guitar
and if you swing it - swing it
you know he might pick you

My friend Ken plays a mean guitar
he plays it mean now.
Track Name: Could You Be?
Watch your hands
the train is coming back again
so let's go
bleeding hearts
will always flow together
we'll make a movie
drive in to the next show
we're living continental orchestration
I beckon you into imagination

Could you be the one I love?
Could you be the one I love?
Well I don't know..

Innocence
kingdom of the Promised Land we're changing mandolins, a dolphin swims so shallow
hand in hand we walk into the middle
overnight sensations yet so little

Could you be the one I love?
Could you be the one I love?
Well I don't know..
Track Name: So Long
In your eyes I saw my future
so long ago
I was just a child
and we had so long to go
so long to go me and you

Growing up my mind was wild
so long ago
so long ago
filled with dreams that you inspired
so long ago
so long ago

but without you there is no light
without you there is no light
now my whole wide world comes crashing
into the blues..
