Track Name: Love You Too
Look at what you're saying
No one's listening half the time
It's a crime, it's a crime

And if you're feeling
Something that you can't describe
Take a ride, take a ride

Now look around these streets have changed without me
I was caught somewhere in between
I wish that I could stay here with you
Love you too
Love you too

And I've been counting
All the things I said I'd do
Before I'm through, 'fore I'm through

But I've been lazy
And I can't figure out a way
Just to say, just to say

Now yesterday has gone away it's gone for good
Couldn't do nothing that I should
I wish that I could stay here with you
Love you too
Love you too

And I can't finish
Anything I start at all
That's for sure, that's for sure

My motivation
Seems to vanish like the wind
It's a sin, it's a sin

Do you remember when these walls felt alive
Feels now like something's died
I wish that I could stay here with you
Love you too
Love you too
Track Name: No Idea
She gets her way
It doesn't matter to me
I am crazy
About the way she calls my name

She could kill me
With one look on her face
I would give up
Surrender all my faith to her

And I see you I can't hide
And when I feel you I can't please don't let go, no don't let go

She holds my hand and I'm suddenly happy
She gives my heart a run for its money
She holds my hand and I'm suddenly happy

She get's her way
It doesn't matter to me
I am crazy
About the way she calls my name

And after all this time
I still have no idea why
She wants to stay around me
Track Name: The Boys Who'll Never Change And The Girls That Change Them
I wish that I could fix you up like new
I wish that there was something I could do
I don't think I quite understand
You hurt me now I'm back again
Mmm that's how it goes

You're here and no ones feeling quite the same
This time there is no one left to blame
Oh what a time
When you were mine
Mmm that's how it goes

You're the same old girl you were before that day
It's the same old tale
The boy's who'll never change and the girls that change them

I wish that I could fix you up like new
Now I know there is nothing I can do
And whenever I see you now
You just smile and nod
Mmm that's how it goes

You're the same old girl you were before that day
It's the same old tale
The boy's who'll never change and the girls that change them
Track Name: Stay At Home
Well we all need some time
Sometimes

I scream out loud
Just to know I'm alive

No December's ever felt as cold as this one, as this one
January all my hopes were resting on your shoulders
I need you

Well it happens every time
I back down
I want to change your mind
But I'm let down

June you must have taken her away from me too quickly
How could you
March she never loved you you're too short to keep her interest
Could have told you

And now I need something
Just to keep this from being
Another lonely stay at home

April you can cry like rain but it wouldn't make a difference
It's over
Maybe you will realize someday when you are older
But I doubt it

And now I need something
Just to keep this from being
Another stay at home
Track Name: Quarter Life Crisis!
Dan's still trying to write that song
To make him rich and quit his job
In 20 years he's missed his shot
What is he to do

Kevin used to run like wind
No one even touching him
Now he's smoking pot and looking thin
What is he to do

And I
I can't find
The meaning of this quarter life
All I want is you by my side

Sam could never find
A girl to ease his mind
Even after all his tries
What is he to do

Brent when will you learn
It's not how much you earn
I know that for sure
What are you to do

And I
I can't find
The meaning of this quarter life
All I want is you by my side

Grace you're the cause
Of all my hate and love
Isn't that enough
What am I to do

Oh and heaven knows
It's over all to soon
Well It's up to you
What are you to do

And I
I can't find
The meaning of this quarter life
All I want is you by my side
Track Name: Hey Seattle (Sweet Chicago)
She's so tough
Yeah she don't cry much
But she cries at night
Something ain't right
He sits at home
And he thinks of her
Though she'll probably never know
He thinks these words still

Sleep little darling don't you cry
And I will sing you a lullaby
Sleep little baby, head in my arms
And I will sing you out of harm

She moved away
To chase a lifelong dream
She's in the city
Riding the train
He lost touch
Though he speculates
'Bout her day to day
Man if she could hear him say

Oh don't you worry the way you do
There's no reason for you to
Hey I can't help it, you know it's true
You use to get me through

She moved on
Well no, not really
But she's seeing someone
It's not what it was
He took some good advice
Tried it once or twice
But it didn't work out
His heart was lost

Oh Chicago I apologize
For all the things that made you cry
Hey Seattle you know it's fine
I still love you most the time

In the ocean
And near the lake
So far away
But they both say

Hey Seattle take good care
Of my old friend while she's there
Sweet Chicago we did alright
Underneath the city lights
Track Name: With-or-Without You
Boy woke from bad dreams
He knew right away
Oh life is short and goes on
With or without you

She said "I love you"
Only broke his heart
Oh he'll be fine give him time
With or without you

And you're only wasting time
If you wanted to, if you wanted to
And you soon enough will find it
If you wanted to, if you wanted to

Don't let them tell you
"Right or wrong"
There's no such thing
Oh you'll see
With or without you
Track Name: Who Was That Girl
Slow down it's been so long since I last saw you
How've you been getting on
You know, what's new

Hey would you like to meet just like the first time
We'll go someplace to eat
Then maybe, well, never mind

And then she calls me up to say I'm sorry
I'd really like to go
I'll be free one day

I'm thinkin' of you
Are you thinkin' of me
I never know

Who was that girl
I used to know her
Pretty eyes and pretty all over
It gets harder as I get older
Living on my own

It shouldn't bother me
This small rejection
It's not like you and me exactly see eye to eye

But your indifference it drives me crazy
I don't mean to complain
Oh I'm just lonely

Because there was a time
When you once told me
I'm so glad you are mine
And don't you leave me alone

I'm thinkin' of you
Are you thinkin' of me
I never know

Who was that girl
I used to know her
Pretty eyes and pretty all over
It gets harder as I get older
Living on my own

The only proof I have besides my memory
Is just a photograph
And they're both fadin' fast

Who was that girl
I used to know her
In the picture we're shoulder to shoulder
It gets harder as I get older
Living on my own
Track Name: Big Buts And Small Wastes
Well you never got my sense of humor
So I never got you anything
But you only laughed at my situation
I was lonely and you were not free

Still I woulda told you all my secrets
If it wasn't for a little bit of luck
And a song I heard on the radio sayin
If you love 'em don't you ever let them know

Oh tonight I should have been in love
Oh tonight with you
Oh tonight I should have been in love
Oh tonight with you

But you didn't mind my conversation
Bout the way that things used to be
And I didn't mind your sweet reaction
When you smiled and looked at me

And I was only looking for somebody that I could love
What was I thinking when I told you I couldn't stay long

Oh tonight I should have been in love
Oh tonight with you
Oh tonight I should have been in love
Oh tonight with you

Well I couldn't count my excuses
Sorry that I had to go
Though it probably never even really mattered
Coulda loved you but I never let you know
And I shoulda loved but I never let it show
And I coulda loved you but I never let you know
And you shoulda loved me but I never let it show
And I coulda loved you but I never let her go
And I shoulda loved you now I'd rather be alone
Track Name: Garage Sale Bargain
I was born with skinny bones
A broken heart and an iron lung
And everything I have ever loved
Has up and gone and hit the road

That's why I buy things cheap
I ain't trying to play for keeps
And no ones ever payed me a favor
A simple favor

I am tired of hospital beds
White sheets that mourn the dead
Why must they go away
And I will fall in love one day
And I won't expect her to stay hey

That's why I buy things cheap
I ain't trying to play for keeps
And no ones ever payed me a favor
A simple favor

I looked into her eyes one day and read the words she coudn't say
Never knew that I could feel this way
Yesterday I found a card that she had written from her heart
Knew the words no longer held their meaning
Held their meaning

Oh I loved her so
With her eyes of blue and hair of gold
Sometimes her laugh still haunts me
So that's why I buy things cheap
I ain't trying to play for keeps
And no ones payed me a favor
A simple favor
Track Name: Gimme Gimme Love
I've been waiting
But you've been playing me
Like a fool I was
Lookin' for love

You're a beauty
You see straight through me
But look whats missin' is maybe some love
Come on

All your riches won't make you happy
Maybe baby you could
Give me some

I'm a poor boy and
No I don't mind cause
All I really want is
Maybe some love

Gimme Love
Gimme Love

She's like the sunshine
Have to squint my eyes
When I look at her to
See her at all

Tilts her head left and
Oh my goodness I
Will not soon forget you
Now give me some love

Gimme Love
Gimme Love

Oh I miss you now
Can I kiss you well
I would never no
Do you no harm

Oh please let me I'm
Going crazy so
Maybe baby you could
Gimme some love

Gimme Love
Gimme Love

Love
Love
Track Name: Love Is Blue
You were always sayin' it would never end
I was thinking things were better left unspoken
I don't really know what you were waiting for with me
Didn't take me long before I realized
Nothing you can have is ever gonna last
It's true
Love is blue

Guess I have a tendency to over react
But I was in love with someone she only left
You can see it in her eyes when she is gone
I don't even really wanna think about it
Gonna hold it in til I forget about you
Love is blue

Oh Yeah
Oh Yeah
Oh Yeah
Yeah

Wonder if she's ever gonna think about me
Guess I know she will but is it gonna change things
Maybe I'll just right it off to my bad timing
Closest thing I ever had to real love
Turned out just to be another game of cards
It's true

Love is blue
Love is blue
Love is blue
Track Name: The Other Way Around, Sometimes
Well you started out with nothing
Cause it's all that you could find
And you ended up with too much
Cause it's the other way around sometimes

It was a hopeless case of classic heartbreak
With his hands in his face he cried and proclaimed
It'll be the other way around someday

What a strange thing to say
Gotta be in love to like anything
Well maybe you'd agree but most people would see
And turn it around the other way

It was a dislocation of time
And I couldn't believe my eyes
You wanted it bad but you just turned your back
Cause it's the other way around sometimes

Ohh Ohh Ohh

Hard days
And skies of grey
Well that's just the thing oh you wait and see
When it's the other way

Every once in a while
You say with a smile
Well it wasn't so bad
The things that you had
Cause it's the other way around sometimes
Track Name: Come And Go
Mary Mary you look weary
I can see in your eyes
"Everything I do is for my kids,
But I'm alright"

These things come and go
Like the river flows
These things come and go

Dave he always prayed and prayed oh
"How I wish there was more,
Oh I hate my job, this 9-5
But I'm out the door"

These things come and go
Like the river flows
These things come and go

Hey there young bride you look alright
But I heard you say
"Everything in my life is not the way,
That I want it to be"

These things come and go
Like the river flows
These things come and go
