Track Name: Bliss
You know the feeling
You felt it once before
Like nothing else you've ever known
You want it bad
You want it more and more

These days are fleeting
And it's your time to shine
You know nothing lasts forever
And nothing can stop the ticking of time

It don't get much better than this
I'm telling you now so you
You better enjoy it
Yyou better enjoy
Every moment of bliss

Ain't no mistaking
The best days of your life
The ones you'll look back on someday
And think about with misty eyes

'Cause time flies and people change
You know it's true, but it seems so strange
The love we share and the love we show
Is all we've got so I think you should know

It don't get much better than this
I'm telling you now so you
You better enjoy it
You better enjoy
Every moment of bliss
Track Name: My Disgrace
How long must I wait
For you to get it straight
I'll see you around, see you around, 'round town
I want you to know
If you ever need a place to go
Whatever you call me, I don't care
Whenever you need me, I'll be there

Those tears falling down your face
Wish I could make them go away
But I can't ever erase the memories of yesterday
(Ho-oh) It's my disgrace
And there's nothing left to say
That could possibly erase
The memories of yesterday

Forty days and forty nights
I've tried to make it right
It's not much fun
And so much easier said than done
But how else can I show
That I would never let you go
Whatever you call me, I don't care
Whenever you need me, I'll be there

Those tears falling down your face
Wish I could make them go away
But I can't ever erase
The memories of yesterday
(Ho-oh) It's my disgrace
And there's nothing left to say
That could possibly erase
The memories of yesterday
Track Name: That Summer
I took your picture
Carry it around
Once I ran the ship aground
Now I'm lonely
And I'm feeling sad
Only think of what we had

I've fallen on the floor
All caught up in a net
Covering my face I try my hardest to forget
That we never said goodbye before I let it go

I'm in a corner
Don't know which way to turn
Don't think I'll ever learn
I see your image
I hear your every word
My memory is undeterred

I've fallen on the floor
All caught up in a net
Covering my face I try my hardest to forget
That we never said goodbye before I let it go

I've fallen, I'm all caught up in a net
Covering my face I try my hardest to forget
That we never said goodbye before I let it go

We never really tried before I let it go
Track Name: As Ever As Always
Moon lights the grass on a distant hill
You once lay beneath that tree
Now the house is cold and still
But your hair's still woven with leaves

Beyond your walls through endless blue
Comes a voice that knows your name
It whispers all your dreams to you
And sets your heart aflame

Look me in the eyes while they're still open
Love is blazing there as ever as always

Step outside and lift your head
Your breath rises up and fades
Light years the glow of stars has stretched
But you think you need more space

Cast your hands into the sky
Constellations in your palm
If you took a step, you might just fly
Yet the night calls on

Look me in the eyes while they're still open
While we've got this life, there is still time to hope
You'd know them anywhere, wide awake in all ways
Love is blazing there as ever as always

Even as the moon falls, the sun soon will rise
So don't let go
It's not too late
It's time to wake
So open your eyes

When you wonder if the love you thought was real is really gone
Don't let it go
It's not too late while we're alive

Look me in the eyes while they're still open
While we've got this life, there is still time to hope
You'd know them anywhere, wide awake in all ways
Love is blazing there as ever as always

Love is blazing there as ever as always
Love is blazing there as ever as always
Track Name: Innocent Again
Too simple you know...
Playing outside:
Climb a ladder, slide down
All the way you go
To where your heart beats all of its own

I'd like it to be like it was back then
I wish I could be innocent again

People I see waiting for their lives
Pushing on impatiently
All the ways they try
To fill a well that's long run dry

They'd like it to be like it was back then
Living in a world innocent again

Losing myself sitting on a train
Same trip every single day
Calling out their games
Pretending I am not one of them
But I am yes I am, who's the fool then?
Why can't we all be innocent again?

How do I stop myself from tumbling down
A road that will never change
How do I set my hands and feet upon the ground
Stand up so I can rearrange
Come on let's face it now
It's time to mend
We can never be innocent again

Remember
Got to surrender
To where your heart beats all of its own
Track Name: Any Other Way
You're beautiful
You don't even know it
You're one of a kind
And you're all mine

You're in control
But you never show it
You come out looking fine
Every time

You know you drive me crazy
But I wouldn't want it any other way

I'm head over heels
I'm out of my mind
You turn me upside down
And inside out

But I never complain
I actually like it
You'll never see me down
When you come around

You know you drive me crazy
But I wouldn't want it any other way
You know I like how you play me
And I wouldn't want it any other way
Track Name: But As Hard As You Try
For all I know
You could be the one for me
I'd like to see where this goes
In spite of our uncertainty

There's no sense in worrying about
Things we don't control
In the end, what's done is done
So why not let it go

I always try to look at the bright side
Still it's the darkness that lingers instead
I focus on the inside
But as hard as you try
You can't take back what you said

The night we met
I saw your face glowing from the street
I smiled and said
"I think I've finally been set free"

Now there's something in your eyes
I never saw before
All that truth I found in you
I can't find anymore

I always try to look at the bright side
Still it's the darkness that lingers instead
I focus on the inside
But as hard as you try
You can't take back what you said

All this hurt and regret
Will keep lingering, lingering
As we try to forget
And put it all out of our minds

I always try to look at the bright side
Still it's the darkness that lingers instead
I focus on the inside
But as hard as you try
You can't take back...

I always try to look at the bright side
But you can't take back what you said
I focus on the inside
But as hard as you try
You can't take back what you said
Track Name: This Time
Before I speak, you say you know
We can't go on like this anymore
We lost it a long, long time ago
And it'll never be like it was before

Your mind's made up and so is mine
No need to talk it out this time
Anytime we go will suit me fine
It's best we leave this place behind

This time around you'll see
Everything is all right by me
We've already gone our separate ways
You'll be fine and I'll be okay
'Cause this time it's forever

Another week, another month has passed
Getting over you was never fast
I used to have trouble putting you in the past
But now I know this love could never last

This time around you'll see
Everything is all right by me
We've already gone our separate ways
You'll be fine and I'll be okay
Yeah this time around you'll see
We held out so long, it's a mystery
This time, this time was all that I could take

(Oh no) This time around you'll see
It was never all right with you or me
Our words all lies, our hearts were a mess
Now we're suffering all this loneliness
This time it would be different
If we gave it one more shot
Track Name: Insomnia
Snow falls down
And everything is dying all around
Night falls earlier every day

Darkness calls every night
Keeps me awake until daylight
Voices in my head won't let me be

It doesn't matter how hard I try
I guess I'll just sleep when I die
The peacefulness I crave will arrive
And then I'll kiss my sleepless nights goodbye

I saw a man
Whose smile made me think he'd understand
I told him all of my fears

It felt so right
A warm place to lay my head at night
But like the others, soon he would disappear

It doesn't matter how hard I try
I guess I'll just sleep when I die

It doesn't matter how hard I try
I guess I'll just sleep when I die
The peacefulness I've feigned will arrive
And then I'll kiss my sleepless nights goodbye

Sleepless nights goodbye
Sleepless nights
Track Name: Future World
I remember a future with you
After dinner when we're all through
The sun will be setting the trees all on fire
We'll stay and we'll sit for a little while

'Cause I'll remember that one time and so will you
But we'll tell all the stories 'cause the telling's the truth

I remember a future with you
Windows down, speeding under the moon
The dashboard will be a drum for your hands
And our voices will echo across the farmland

'Cause I'll know every word and so will you
And we'll sing all the louder 'cause the singing's the truth

In this future world I lived with you
This make believe world we both knew
In the burning sky world
I remember with you
With you

I remember a future with you
Birthday cakes that will turn our tongues blue
We'll turn to each other with colorful grins
And play the game where everyone wins

'Cause I'll still love you so much, and you'll love me too
So we'll keep playing our game 'cause the playing's the truth

In this future world I lived with you
This make believe world we both knew
In the I-love-you-game world
I remember with you

The philosopher said there's no deeper despair
Than remembering what will never be there
Well I'll be waiting down that lonely road
Living our dream, hoping you'll show

I remember a future with you
After dinner when we are all through
The sun will be setting my heart all on fire
And I'll stay and I'll know what it is to desire

Now you remember that one time and so do I
But our future has no words, not even "goodbye"

And this is the world I'm wishing for
My make believe world, nothing more
I'm alone in the world
I remember with you
This future world I remember
Our future world

I'm all alone and waiting
Waiting here for you
In this future world
The spinning nowhere world I knew with you
The spinning nowhere world
Track Name: When It Feels Like You've Never Been Gone
The sun wraps its golden arms around
The hills and valleys and fields
And it crowns kings in every movement
Every breath and each step that you take
If you turn the right direction in the light
You can see past your mistakes

When it feels like you've never been gone
It can heal all you had thought that was wrong

A man working in the sun reaches out to her
He wonders what it's all about
The wheels have been in motion
There's never been time to be awake
But now they've seen the ocean
The stars in the night were in place

When it feels like you've never been gone
It can heal all you had thought that was wrong

There's no starting over
The cards have been played
The trick is to kindle the flame every day
Track Name: Where The Living Starts
You know you caused me a lot of strife
All those years you made me hide
So I tried to ruin your life
And forget about your sweeter side

But I've lied about who I love
Tried to make folks do what I think they should
And though I hardly ever rise above
Deep down I know that I am good

Everyone in the world is an asshole
But underneath has a really good heart
So let's air it all out then let it all go
This is where the living starts

She kicked her daughter out of the house
"You'll burn in hell" she shouted in her face
But she stopped the cat from killing a meadow mouse
And always cries through Amazing Grace

He tried to make it look like a fall
When he busted his best friend's head
But his final words were "I love you all --
Take care, y'all, when I am dead"

Everyone in the world is an asshole
But underneath has a really good heart
So let's air it all out then let it all go
This is where the living starts

I've had the dream a thousand nights
We forget all the hurt and fights
Just shrug it off and take a chance
Get off your grouchy ass and dance (dance, dance)

'Cause everyone in this room is an asshole
But underneath has a really good heart
So let's air it all out then let it all go
This is where the living starts

Yeah, everyone in the world is an asshole
But underneath has a really good heart
So let's air it all out then let it all go
This is where the living starts

Now we've all swatted flies with pride
Or liked the thought of someone tripping up
We cheat and deny, we scowl and deride
But we can still choose the loving cup
