Track Name: Like the Sun Needs the Day
It seems we’re not so far from all the things we’ve dreamed about
Though time may pass too soon, memories serve well, and there’s so much more to come
We’ve really only just begun, and now’s the perfect time- give me yours and I’ll give you mine
Cause I need your heart like the sun needs the day
Without you my light just filters away
I’m gonna love you till my dying day, my dear, yes I will
And how my luck came through, your tender heart and your burning eyes
I’ve melted into you
No longer am I compromised
Oh God I hope you see your beauty, it reflects on me, he said
God I hope you know in my eyes you will always be so
Cause I need your heart like the sun needs the day
Without you my light just filters away
I’m gonna love you till my dying day, my dear, yes I will
I need your heart like the sun needs the day, cause without you my light filters away
I need your heart like the sun needs the day, cause without you my light, filters away
Track Name: Wide Open
on your face you wear bright smiles and shining eyes
underneath you are sinking
what you need is a deep breath and a moment of peace
to recognize we’re all human
and then maybe you’d notice that the world is wide open to you
just wanting to reach out and give you a hand
I wish I could show you
I wish I could help you to understand
getting back up is just part of the plan
when you fall, when you fall
on and on people coming and going, the current strong
in each one a heart’s beating
lay to rest any notion that you are second best
you won’t miss what you’d be leaving
but you’re gonna see this through
and that’s what I love of you
gripping your knuckles all the same
and when you do come unglued
I’ll be here waiting for you
and we’re gonna leave the way we came
When you fall, when you fall, when you fall, fall, fall
Track Name: Cherokee
Cherokee don’t make me wait for you
take along what belongs where the oak grows roots, where the oak grows roots
I cannot watch as the lost wither past the fruit
there’s still time, she’s still mine, I can break the news
I will break the news
cause it’s time, time to get on your horse and ride, ride on for dreams of two
Cherokee do you often see forgotten souls run dry
wind and rain named to blame lofty dreams that die, lofty dreams that die
She could shine so bright the sun wouldn’t stand a chance against the light in her eyes
She could shine so bright the sun wouldn’t stand a chance against the light in her eyes
Cherokee, don’t make me, wait for you
Take along, what belongs, where the oak grows roots
Track Name: Dreamer
he saw you once in a dream he had
just a child but he knew your plan
you slipped away into heavens light
arms wide open but out of sight
Oooh, oooh when will he find you?
oooh oooh when will he find you…
do you wait in the canyon tide?
does the time patiently abide?
can you rest while you wait for him?
to close the circle that love begins….
the dreamer breaks to begin the day
lets the memories slip away
does his best to begin again
but there’s a sadness where you should have been
so love come quickly and bring it home
she never meant for you to feel alone
there’s so much more to us than beating hearts
our bodies break but we will never part
she told me once in a dream i had...
Track Name: Kiss My Lips
Kiss my lips, honey, like you’ve never before
Be the one to rescue me from this war
Come on honey, I’ve got my strings in the car
And you’ve got me, and I’m ready to hold you in my loving arms
Cause when I’m looking at you, I see who you are
Yeah you’ve got my attention, you got my heart beating hard
So kiss my lips honey like you’ve never before
Be the one to rescue me from this inner war
Lets just freeze this moment for the rest of our lives
It don’t get much better, than with you and I
So kiss my li
ps honey, like you’ve never before
Be the one to rescue me from my inner war
Track Name: Not on My Side
I’m tired of looking at your face
wondering what’s behind your eyes
counting all the ways you lie
Im asking for a little grace
Don’t you think it’s enough
are you looking through my eyes
I’ve given all I have and more
I’ve gotta leave you to decide
cause time, time, time’s not on my side
Gave all my change away today
Made a point to be polite
Kept a smile on my face
Despite the way I feel inside
l left my shoes out in the rain last night
forgot the window in the car was down
why can’t i ever get the small things right
I gotta get myself straight somehow
I remember the promise you made me
told me she was only a memory
you used to hold me so tight I couldn’t breathe
filled my head with all kinds of dreams
you filled my head filled my head filled my head with all kinds of dreams
I’m tired of looking at your face
seeing what’s inside your mind
and feeling all my love misplaced
cause you’ve been wasting my precious time
Time, time, time’s not on my side
Track Name: One More Day
You’ve got a long way to go, as fast as it comes it goes
It’s gonna hurt, hurt like hell, I know so well
As soon as your ready to call, I’ll stand by your side as you go
Just let me know next time you decide you don’t want to try
Don’t let your eyes close on the sunshine one more day
if you don’t fight no one will, and you’ve got stories to tell
So get off your back and get on the phone, know you’re not alone anymore
Don’t let your eyes close on the sunshine one more day
You’ve got a long way to go, as fast as it comes it goes
It’s gonna hurt, hurt like hell, I know so well
Track Name: Whenever You Need To
Won’t you come to the back of the house
sit down and I’ll make you some tea
tell me all about, whatever you need
My heart is open, my mind is on board
I think we’ve had our fair share
it’s time to open some doors
Don’t you know there’s a place in my heart, and I saved it for you
Don’t you know there’s a place in my heart, for whenever you need to
there’s more good than bad
there’s more laughter than sad
there’s more pages to fill
let’s find happier still
Don’t you know, there’s a place in my heart and I saved it for you
Don’t you know there’s a place in my heart, for whenever you need to
Track Name: Don't Go Too Far
take me down to your river
take me down to where you are
take me there, don't let me leave you
don't let me get too far
dip my toes in the water
drop my knees to the ground
hold your breath as I give it another go around
there is a feeling I can't shake, like I'm a stranger to this place
In the dark I lay awake
I can hear you as you say
"don't go too far"
Track Name: Yeah You
Late at night when the city sleeps and the
cats are prowling and the air is sweet
I wanna stay here when everybody goes home
I wanna listen to your stories all night long
Yeah you, yeah you got it going on
Yeah you might keep me up till dawn
like tomorrow’s not a problem, we’re doing nothing wrong
I wanna listen to your stories all night long
Let’s play canasta and drink your daddy’s bombay gin
And when I forget how you’ll teach me how to play again
And I’ll watch your lips as the words come out your mouth
I won’t be hearing you those lips are what I’m thinking about
All I can say is how I feel when I’m with you
It’s not the way I feel when I’m with anyone but you
Yeah you, yeah you got it going on
Yeah you might keep me up till dawn
like tomorrow’s not a problem, we’re doing nothing wrong
I wanna listen to your stories all night long
