Track Name: Better With Me
if you lose yourself in the moment
i might come looking for you
if you need somebody to talk to
i might lend an ear or two

then you'll see
it's better with me
you might be gone...

if you drown yourself in the new wave
i might search land and sea
but if you run away from the sunrise
don't come running back to me

'cause you'll see
it's better with me
you might be gone...

if you ask too much in the first place
i might ask even more still
but if you need good lovin' with no waste
and i'm sure you certainly will

then you'll see
it's better with me
you might be gone...
you might be gone,
but now I'm free
Track Name: Second Time
what would you do with your newfound freedom?
would you watch as it passes by
the ones who seek it will never find

would you cherish a moment's laughter
or would you stare off into unknown
thinking of the way back home

I know it's hard sometimes to listen to yourself out there
I know it hurts to think of all the ways you could have
spared her pain
but don't get scared again
a second time

I know you talk sometimes like no one's listening
but you might be surprised to see
when what you're saying's set free
when what you're saying's set free
with what you're saying to me
Track Name: Follow The Truth
I could tell a lie
cast a downward eye
but I won't this time, I know
it's time to follow the truth

when your shadow's long
you will sing this song
to get my fix is wrong, I know
it's time to follow the truth

there are signs to see
if you see like me
can't deny the pleas, I know
it's time to follow the truth
Track Name: Before My Eyes
I know you so many ways
your sun and your moonlit face

could sweep me off my feet
never thought I'd meet
someone who would let me learn to love
as each day goes by
I see no reason why
but you still remain before my eyes

I've blundered so many things
you stay here; I know it stings

sweep me off my feet
never thought I'd meet
someone who would let me learn to love
as each day goes by
I see no reason why
but you still remain before my eyes

when time frees us from our lives
I will find you if you'll be mine

sweep me off my feet
never thought I'd meet
someone who would let me learn to love
as each day goes by
I see no reason why
but you still remain before my eyes
Track Name: Ready To Rumble
there are millions of people out
waiting for someone
who knows how to turn on the light
but I'm only the messenger
no one informed me
that I had to put up a fight

I'm not ready to rumble
can't hold steady
I might tumble
back down

I'd erase all the letters
I wrote to this city
for I am not meant to pass down
and the photographs hanging
would surely look pretty
if in them I couldn't be found

I'm not ready to rumble
can't hold steady
I might tumble
back down

every man in the mountain
is sure he is working
to get what his family needs
but the mouths of his children,
his poor, hungry children
are not the first he gets to feed


I'm not ready to rumble
can't hold steady
I might tumble
back down
Track Name: Back Around
these words are already out of my mouth
these feelings already gone
I whisper come quickly
and I will show you how
we made the best love can be found

sometimes it's not mine to decide
who stays and
who goes and
who comes back around

the daylight will sift my
wishful thinking through your hair
by midnight I might forget it's there
the mixing of spirits
the drinking of the moon
the question: will you be leaving soon?
the question will you be leaving soon
Track Name: One Step
your melody swarms around my bed
like a dozen hammers to my head
never thought I'd see you walk away
but I'd be better if that was my mistake

but we're too far apart
playing our own parts
and I'm always one step away
from your heart

another reminder I'm too late
slipping through cracks in spinning plates
torrential the calm before the storm
where running and hiding is the norm

but we're too far apart
playing our own parts
and I'm always one step away
from your heart

serenity eases herself in
complacency's always sure she wins
but my situation's not so bad
just look at the times that we've both had

'cause we're too far apart
playing our own parts
and I'm always one step away
from your heart
yeah we're too far apart
playing our own parts
and I'm always one step away
from your heart
Track Name: Different Colored Leaves
one door at a time
even a window would be fine
I need an escape
or at least something to climb

I'm waiting now
no telling how

I'll use my own hands
to show you many different plans
once contained in a jar
a raging storm and shifting sands

I'm waiting now
no telling how

I see what you mean
no place to go
nowhere to hide
I'll start it up
before you need
to say goodbye

gazing up through the trees
grazing on some thoughts like these
they surround me with life
many different colored leaves

I'm waiting now
no telling how

I see what you mean
no place to go
nowhere to hide
I'll start it up
before you need
to say goodbye

a golden sailing ship for one
when my journey's said and done
Track Name: The Light
come closer, dear
I've got some things you need to hear
some good advice
passed through the haze of many nights
it will not hurt
I will not skirt the issue twice

the strongest light is half as bright
as the one you're looking for tonight
I can't help steer, but I'll make clear
as it goes

it had to wait
I couldn't seal my fate this time
each habit
drives me high into the sky

the strongest light is half as bright
as the one you're looking for tonight
I can't help steer, but I'll make clear
as it goes

your problems
don't determine who you are
but dreams do
when you see they're not so far


the strongest light is half as bright
as the one you're looking for tonight
I can't help steer, but I'll make clear
as it goes
Track Name: Wings
if I could save a single thing
I would spend my life
the future's ours or so they say
leave that past behind

I could know a world serene
something of a dream
I could speak to great few things
if my words had wings

all my friends have ever seen a certain side of me
misdirected by the breeze

I could know a world serene
something of a dream
I could speak to great few things
if my words had wings

I could know a world serene
something of a dream
I could speak to great few things
if my words had wings

left to die or right to live
counting on each hand
I'll be fine if you decide
Track Name: Anything
you might be troubled by my past
yeah, I'm real sorry about that
you had to wait your turn
but if you hope to finish last

there won't be anything there
anything fair
anything left for you, my dear

you had to kiss yourself goodbye
you couldn't fake it if you tried
and I will make amends
show you the means but not the ends

there won't be anything there
anything fair
anything left for you, my dear

the waves will crash upon the shore
and though I know you needed more
but I can't find your place
she's not so easy to erase

there won't be anything there
anything fair
anything left for you, my dear
there won't be anything there
anything fair
anything left
Track Name: The Day & The Night
I've seen some things that make grown men scream
I've seen flashes of a child's first dream

I've been places most have never seen
in the spaces that are in between

the light of day
and the night

I know people if you need a cure
I know people, but I'm never sure
something happens time and time again

in the day
and the night

someone snap me back into my place
when my map reads straight back to disgrace

if you saw her, you would know her face
tears and anger form the dew and rays

of the day
and the night
