Track Name: Bleed Me Dry
Bleed me dry, go on and bleed me dry
Take all I have, and leave me to die
See I’m at the end of this parade, and my time has come
To do my best dance and die in the sun

Bleed me dry
Bleed me dry

Bleed me dry, hey let’s go to A.C.
Whatever you want you know it’s all on me
After that let’s walk the streets, you know how I like to feel the night
From the bottom of Pacific Avenue, let’s look up at the light

Bleed me dry
Bleed me dry

Before the alter I want release
Bleed me dry give me peace
Maybe I’m scared by so many I see
So my plan is simple I’m gonna kill it before it kills me

See I know it’s broken logic, from a broken man
But I just beg you to understand….understand

Before the priest, before the cake
Give me a prescription to cure these shakes
Suck me dry and make it real, if I don’t die than I won’t feel
On the boardwalk I remember the old times new, a Picasso painting so real but not true
In a new form in a new frame resurrected in the morning sun I feel my journey has just begun

Before the alter
After the feast
Don’t you know I’ll be ready
I’ll have peace

So bleed me dry, bleed me dry, bleed me dry, bleed me dry

Make me over I wanna be reborn again
Track Name: I Believe In You
Everybody wants something to believe in
Something like Babylon to pull you through
We keep searching over the mountains, through valleys, into the darkness for a clue
But till we get there, believe in me and I’ll believe in you

I’ll believe, I’ll believe in you
I’ll believe, I’ll believe in you

Everybody’s got a reason
A purpose to push you all the way through
Sometimes we don’t know what it is, don’t know who it is, we’re stuck in the biz of needing proof
But till we get there, believe in me and I’ll believe in you

I’ll believe, I’ll believe in you
I’ll believe, I’ll believe in you

I’m just one of many
all deserving more
Of the dreams that come from night to sky blue
Please believe in me and I’ll believe in you

I’ll believe, I’ll believe in you
I’ll believe, I’ll believe in you
Track Name: Leave The Light On
Days have turn into weeks
Since last I felt your heartbeat
Right next to mine I used to feel it all the time
Back when you were mine

Now I sit outside
And wait for you
To come back home
Cause I’m missing you

Much time has passed, for us
So much has changed, between us
But I still think of you, all the time
I know you’re gone but I’ll leave the light on, for you

I know you know the way
The way to come back home
Please remember how it felt
Now think of me alone

As I sit outside
And cry for you
To come back home
Cause I’m still in love with you

Much time has passed, for us
So much has changed, between us
But I still think of you, all the time
I know you’re gone but I’ll leave the light on, for you

Much time has passed, for us
So much has changed, between us
But I still think of you, all the time

Much time has passed
So much has changed
But I still think of you, all the time
I know you’re gone but I’ll leave the light on, for you
Should’ve never stayed away so long
I know you’re gone but I’ll leave the light on, for you

I’ll leave the light on
For you
To come back home
Cause I’m still in love with you
Track Name: Can't Stop
I can’t stop
And I won’t stop
Just can’t stop
Comin after you

The one little kiss we had just won’t be enough
To kill this urge I have for your touch
In fact its made it grow, grow stronger with time
Now that one little moment is messing with my mind

Now I can’t stop
And I won’t stop
Just can’t stop
Comin after you

I tried to push the feelings to the back of my mind
But the keep coming back every single time
I’m around your smile and I see your face
I don’t care what happens, I don’t care about disgrace

Now I can’t stop
And I won’t stop
Just can’t stop
Comin after you

Right and wrong don’t matter
There’s just that kiss
I’m under you spell girl, just gotta make one wish
Whatever you want you know I will do
Cause I can’t stop won’t stop coming after you

I can’t stop
And I won’t stop
Just can’t stop
Comin after you

Comin after you…
Track Name: Just Leave
You’re just…
Another sun
Another moon
I’ve seen them come around
Felt them leave to soon
People like you
Aren’t made for much more
Than broken hearts
And pain on the floor

But still, I always know, when you’re around
No, I never can seem, to let you down
But if you care at all
Let me go

Please just leave me alone
Just leave me, all alone

I’m begging you
I just don’t know
What else to do
I have a life
I have a home
Something we’ll never have
My heart’s not yours to own

So, I’m trying to keep it all, together
Don’t wanna fall, and lose it all
So if you care at all
Let me go

Please just leave me alone
Just leave me, leave me alone

Stay away
Just leave me alone

There’s no future here
We know that’s true
I’m not pointing blame
It doesn’t lie with you
But it can’t happen again
So I’m asking you…

To leave, just leave
Just Leave, leave

I’m trying to keep it all together
When breakin down is all I want to do
So if you care at all
Let me go

Please just leave me alone
Just leave me, leave me alone

Stay away
Just leave me alone
Stay away, stay away, stay away…
Track Name: We All Fall In Love Sometimes
Wise men say
It looks like rain today
It crackled on the speakers
And trickled down the sleepy subway trains
For heavy eyes could hardly hold us
Aching legs that often told us
It's all worth it
We all fall in love sometimes

The full moon's bright
And starlight filled the evening
We wrote it and I played it
Something happened it's so strange this feeling
Naive notions that were childish
Simple tunes that tried to hide it
But when it comes
We all fall in love sometimes

Did we, didn't we, should we couldn't we
I'm not sure `cause sometimes we're so blind
Struggling through the day
When even your best friend says
Don't you find
We all fall in love sometimes

And only passing time
Could kill the boredom we acquired
Running with the losers for a while
But our Empty Sky was filled with laughter
Just before the flood
Painting worried faces with a smile

Wise men say
It looks like rain today
It crackled on the speakers
And trickled down the sleepy subway trains
For heavy eyes could hardly hold us
Aching legs that often told us
It's all worth it
We all fall in love sometimes
Track Name: Changes
It seems the weather is changing
Bringing with it new day
Seems the cold has come in
I still want the warm to stay

I’m going through (6x)
Through Changes (3x)

It seems the sun has fallen
Letting the night come out to play
Over and over I keep hoping
That everything will be okay

I’m going through (6x)
Through Changes (3x)

You’re so much better thank you think you are, you think you are
The sun is shining can’t you see
Open your eyes to the world, the world
Tell me what you see

I see the trees and lakes from way up high
And the rivers that flow to the sea
I see the earth in its beauty song
And in the middle I see me

I’m going through (6x)
Through Changes (3x)

I’m going through (6x)
Through Changes (3x)
Track Name: Everlasting Light
Let me be your everlasting light
The sun when there is none
I'm a shepherd for you
And I'll guide you through
Let me be your everlasting light

Let me be your everlasting light
I'll hold and never scold
In me you can confide
When no one's by your side
Let me be your everlasting light

Oh baby, can't you see
It's shinin' just for you
Your Loneliness is over
Dark days are through

Let me be your everlasting light
A train goin' 'way from pain
Love is the coal
That makes this train roll
Let me be your everlasting light
Let me be your everlasting light
Let me be your everlasting light
Track Name: Somewhere Around
Even if your world’s falling down
I just want to be somewhere around
Even if you push me and I fall down
I just want to be somewhere around

See we went to the bar, had too much
You were talking me ear off, then spilling your guts
I could tell even then
That we was more, more than friends

Cause the next night I let you do it to me again, oh again
Cause the night after that, you let me do it to you oh yeah, oh yeah

Even if, even if you turn me down
I just want to be somewhere around
As a lover even a friend I know what I’ve found
I just want to be somewhere around

On the phone last night, I heard you cry
Talkin about what I did and how he ruined your life
I could tell even then
That we was more, much more, more than friends

Cause the next night I let you do it to me again, oh again
Maybe the night after that, you’ll let me do it to you oh yeah, oh yeah

See I’ll be your fool baby
I’ll be your sucker
I’ll be whatever you want me to be
I’ll be your teddy bear
I’ll be your lover
Just don’t make me leave

Cause I just want to be around, around
I just want to be around, around

Cause I just want to be around, around
I just want to be around, around
