Track Name: Alright
it's cold outside
that time of year again
and I'm caught thinking of you again
how I wish there was somehow I could respond
to all the postcards from you
but don't you ever try
cuz I'll be alright

as the snow falls my eyes do too
and I imagine your smile and your shoopie-doot-doo
and I know wherever we are we will remain true
true to ourselves and to each other
so I will be alright

trapped inside with nothing much to do
so many times I've wanted to speak with you
we've known each other for so long
that it's hard to be apart
all I can do is anticipate
and I will be alright
Track Name: She Don't Want It
sexy midnight conversations
upstairs in my head
close that door
I don't want to know anymore

cuz it seems like every time I fall in love nowadays
I find out that the woman
is in love with another woman
she don't like what I got
she don't wanna touch my body
she just don't find herself attracted to my kind

she don't want it
she don't want it
she don't want it

I say I don't know how
to tell you what it's like
to find a girl you might want
to get to know one night
and then watch her from across the room
as another woman wipes her away from your view
well that's okay with me
that's alright
just hate when it happens to me
almost every night

cuz it seems like every time I fall in love nowadays
I find out that the woman
is in love with another woman
she don't like what I got
she don't wanna touch my body
she just don't find herself attracted to my kind

she don't want it
she don't want it
she don't want it
Track Name: Trapped
there are just so many questions
and I'm not sure I want to know all of the answers
I don't know what to do
I don't know how I'll feel if I follow through
my father told me that if I make a mistake
the sun will rise the next day
but I don't know what he'd say about this

I've been trapped inside a revolving door
don't know how I'm gonna get out anymore
been looking through this cloudy window
for so many years
don't think it'll ever be clear
I just want to be me

don't you find it just a little bit ridiculous
the way that people
the way they look at us
I don't think they'd take us seriously

I've always learned that it's best to tell the truth
but I think this one might be better
kept underneath this roof
cuz once you loose it the truth it never holds
but I guess I'll learn to live with it
if I plan to let this one go

I've been trapped inside a revolving door
don't know how I'm gonna get out anymore
been looking through this cloudy window
for so many years
don't think it'll ever be clear
I just want to be me

this is crazy
this is too much
I don't know how I'm supposed to keep in touch
with my other half
the one I cannot reveal
like there's some kind of unspoken deal

don't you find it sad how we are all so different
yet we're forced to try and be the same
for eighteen years i was caught up in that game
but now I'm tired and fed up
I'm walking away

I've been trapped inside a revolving door
don't know how I'm gonna get out anymore
been looking through this cloudy window
for so many years
don't think it'll ever be clear
I just want to be me

there are just so many questions
and I'm not sure I want to know all of the answers
Track Name: How Grateful I Am/"The Mom Song"
you make me so happy
you brighten up every day that I see or think of you
every time I say your name I just have to smile
yes I smile
I love you like a mother
cuz you're like a mother to me
and I know you'll stand beside me 100% of the way

nothing could ever make me forget about you
cuz you've done so much for me
I don't think I've kept up with my part of the deal
but I want to let you know how grateful I am
that I have you in my life
that I know you
that you're my friend
and you are who you are
and that you love me

your arms are always open
to whomever may need someone
you always seem to amaze me
I just don't know how you are always so strong
thank you for always accepting me
for who I am
no matter how hard I try to be different from everyone

you make me so happy
I just wish you could be around forever
and that I could last just as long
but I assure that whatever happens
I will remember to say hi
Track Name: I Don't Know
I've been traveling down this same road for too long
heading to nowhere that I belong
and I guess that's why I'm calling
just to see if you'll understand
that maybe I can be strong
maybe I can carry on
I'm gonna head for what I love
what the future holds
I don't know

maybe I am wrong
maybe I don't know what I'm speaking of
but I've got to try
I can't bear to let it go
maybe I can be strong
maybe I can carry on
I'm gonna head for what I love
what the future holds
I don't know

I've been around this for most of my life
it's the only thing that seems to be consistent
I can't imagine
to look back one day and say,
"what if I could've been strong
what if I could've carried on"
I'm gonna head for what I love
what the future holds
I don't know
Track Name: Makin' Me
I've never met anyone
that can illuminate the room like you
and I've never met anyone
that can reach the moon
but with a simple smile, hi, and a wave goodbye
you make me crazy inside

you're makin' me crazy
you're makin' me go wild
you're makin' me go wild

I fall in love at least 20 times a day
but the love I feel for you
it's different in that kind of way
so don't you walk away from me
baby, please don't go
cuz i'm about to show you how i can . . .

you're makin' me crazy
you're makin' me go wild
you're makin' me go wild

your ambition grazes my mind
every time I glance behind
your eye catches mine
but 'ain't it funny how you don't even try
you just walk on by

you're makin' me crazy
you're makin' me go wild
you're makin' me go wild
Track Name: Go Ahead
I don't know exactly the way I'm supposed to feel
and I don't know what you're thinkin'
but I know you're thinkin'
you show it all too well
and if you've got something to say to me
then why don't you just go ahead
cuz i'm tired of wondering what's inside your little head

I've been trying hard to hold on to the edges of my smile
something usually not too hard for me
but right now it seems like that extra mile
it's kinda like trying to drink a bottle of water
as you are going over a bump
I just don't know how much longer I will last
until I give up

you take almost everything
and never, ever give anything in return
so how am I, how am I, how am I
supposed to keep myself wide open

the eyes that I wear
they don't always work so well
they don't always see what's coming towards me
at least they can see who I am
and they can speak for themselves
if only you'd look me in the eye
you'd see for yourself

you take almost everything
and never, ever give anything in return
so how am I, how am I, how am I
supposed to keep myself wide open

I've always tried to be so kind
but it's people like you
that are teaching me to draw the line

you take almost everything
and never, ever give anything in return
so how am I, how am I, how am I
supposed to keep myself wide open
Track Name: Goodbye
you ask me to play you a song to take home with you
but I really don't want to
but if you insist
if you promise to leave
then baby here it is, here it is

goodbye, goodbye
goodbye, get out of my life
goodbye, don't come back around
cuz I don't want to know

I don't want to know you
I don't want to see you
I don't want to smell you
I don't want to be around you
so this is your song to take home with you

you worked your little ass over here to me
and I said,"baby, baby oh please"
but you gave me your new address and your new phone line
in hopes that I might use them sometime
but I'm sorry baby you've got it all wrong
just listen to the rest of my song

goodbye, goodbye
goodbye, get out of my life
goodbye, don't come back around
cuz I don't want to know

I don't want to know you
I ain't gonna call you
I don't want to satisfy you
I don't want to be around you
so this is your song to take home with you

hello miss untalkative
what makes you want to come and talk to me now
is it because noone else is around
or is it because your face has finally fallen flat to the ground

I'm getting tired of this here song
been making me think of you for too long
so why don't you just take my advice and leave me alone

goodbye, goodbye
goodbye, get out of my life
goodbye, don't come back around
cuz I don't want to know

I don't want to know you
I don't want to see you
I don't want to smell you
I don't want to be around you
so this is your song to take home with you
Track Name: Day By Day
the awaited night sky just set in
and the humidity wouldn't give into the wind
and those mosquitoes suck to our bare skin
but I didn't want that night
I still don't want that night
I didn't want that night to end

we were sitting together just the other day
talking about our future's and realizing that

life is so overwhelming at times
you gotta take it day by day
every time you make a mistake
it will help you along the way

it may be hard to expose what's inside our souls
but we can't please them all
ya gotta keep strong, don't look back, and move on

life is so overwhelming at times
you gotta take it day by day
every time you make a mistake
it will help you along the way

our time is slowly fading
but we're excelling well
well it's hard to see we need times like these
to bring us down
so we only have one way to go

life is so overwhelming at times
you gotta take it day by day
every time you make a mistake
it will help you along the way
Track Name: Too Quickly
sitting in the window of the uptown bakery
I see parts of you in every person that is passing by
and it seems like everything around me
is learning to turn grey
I don't make it to where I'm supposed to be
and I don't worry anymore
I don't worry about what's going to become of me

this happened all too quickly
it's taking some time to soak in
I try to fight it everyday
but I just end up giving in

don't think it hasn't crossed my mind
almost every day I try to invent another way
to get away from here
I just don't have the will right now to move on
I want to drive back
to where that flag wasn't flying so close to the ground

this happened all too quickly
it's taking some time to soak in
I try to fight it everyday
but I just end up giving in

every once in awhile I think I find a spark
but it usually dies the next day
the only thing that seems to open my eyes anymore
is my love for expressing something through a song
I just hate that it has to be this this time
what I wouldn't give
oh, what I wouldn't give to wrap my arms around
what should have been

this happened all too quickly
it's taking some time to soak in
I try to fight it everyday
but I just end up giving in
Track Name: More Time
it's already been a week since the day that I left
and I am feeling just a slight bit depressed
I've heard being depressed is kinda like smoking a pack a day
so, I guess I'd better get over it and be on my way
but it's funny how when everything starts to go so well
I always have to pack up my life and move on to something else

how I wish I could walk down South Willard Street
watch the leaves change their colors and meet my feet
and how I wish that we had
more time

coming back to this town was a hard thing for me to do
just keep telling myself,
"one more year and you'll be through"
but it's hard to be doing one thing
when you'd rather be doing something else
I guess in the end I'll have done something
to better myself
I thought of taking off a year
or never coming back
but now I'm here, yes I am
and I'm really not all that glad

how I wish I could walk down South Willard Street
watch the leaves change their colors and meet my feet
and how I wish that we had
more time

closing my eyes to recreate past visions in my head
blocking out every single word that you just said
moving my body to those wonderful sounds
picking up my guitar
never wanting to put it down
cuz it's my one, my one true love
don't know what I would do without

how I wish I could walk down South Willard Street
watch the leaves change their colors and meet my feet
and how I wish that we had
more time
