Track Name: If I Had The Time
Thinkin' bout what we could do
If I had more time for you
I would take it so easy
If I had more time for me

Somethin's gotta change
It's time to rearrange

Take that book down from the shelf
If I had time to myself
Who knows what my thoughts could bring
If I had some time to think

Somethin's gotta change
It's time to rearrange

Love is so simple
Why is that so hard to see
Better drop it all for just a moment
Forget is all so easily

You and I could get away
If I had some time today
Live the life I wanna live
If I had some time to give

Somethin's gotta change
It's time to rearrange
Track Name: It's You
How long is long enough
When do new faces start to cover up
The old ones I keep dreaming of
Tell me how long is long enough

Ten times the time we loved
I've been told but this I'm weary of
Knowing I've had the luxury of
Ten times the time we loved

Outta sight, outta mind, outta life
Close the door but
Late at night, dreaming
I still feel I have to hide
Oh, from you

It's you, It's you, It's You, It's You

Swept underneath the rug
Tucked away should be safe from
Plane sight, a wandering eye
Hidden underneath the rug

In time the collection of
Everything that you're so afraid of
Starts building up time since we loved
And I long for long enough

Outta sight, outta mind, outta life
Close the door but
Late at night, dreaming
I still feel I have to hide
Oh, from you

It's you, It's you, It's You, It's You
Track Name: All Over Now
Don't wanna call your name
Don't wanna be the same
As all the other girls
So quick to entertain
Your sly campaign is getting old
My heart is growing cold
Wise to the lies you told
500 stories that you sold

So many paid the price
To live in paradise
No love behind those eyes
And now I realize
Your words you say are never real
Illusion is your deal
Tick-tock the end is near
And now I see it crystal clear

It's all over now
All over now

So now I know your game
And I'm the one to blame
I played the fool for you
Just like to so many others
Do you know I must confess
Can't stand the way you dress
Deep down your such a mess
Just not impressed I guess

It's all over now
All over now
It's all over now
All over now
Track Name: Run
Run, run, run, Run, run, run away from here
Take the long way down into the valley
Wash my face my hands of what has come before
Life renewed with you my one and only

Love like a mystery of the wind that shakes the leaves
I tremble in your midst
Please don't blow away this faith I'm feeling
Don't wake me from the dream I'm living

So we can
Run, run, run, Run, run, run away from here
Take the long way down into the valley
Wash my face my hands of what has come before
Life renewed with you my one and only love

Love, love how did you find me
With so many lonely souls wanderin'
Take my heart, steal away tomorrow
To live again freedom from my sorrow
And we will run

Run, run, run, Run, run, run away from here
Take the long way down into the valley
Wash my face my hands of what has come before
Life renewed with you my one and only
Love, Love, Love
Track Name: Lighthouse
Will I ever live to tell you how I've loved you for so long
Will I be the lonely keeper of my unrequited love song
Will there ever come a day when I fall from graceful silence
To reveal my secret hunger, to relieve my private pain

I can't wait for you until that day
I can't wait for you until that day

I'm the lighthouse in the distance keeping steadfast through the storm
I'm the one who holds the blanket while you try to keep her warm
I'm the door that always open when you need to be fed
Where you leave your chosen burden than return to her bed

I can't wait for you until that day
I can't wait for you until that day

If I ever live to tell you how I've loved you for so long
You will understand the reasons why my strength to love is gone
Why the lighthouse has retired, tired of standing in that storm
Why the blanket has unraveled, my heart has wandered home

I can't wait for you until that day
I can't wait for you until that day
Track Name: Vision
I had a vision of you carefully walking through
a wicked world of darkness
searching for dreams, dreams you left behind
in a forest of doubt inside your mind

and you found in the blindness a desire in your heart
buried by silence, a wish in broken parts

kneeling to pray, wanting to run away
from the pain on the ground around you
wiping the tears of wasted years
of turning away from the truth of you

and you found in the blindness a desire in your heart
buried by silence, a world in broken parts

I had a vision of you

I had a vision of us learning how to trust
in a brand new world uncharted
you kneeled to say, wiping your tears away
don't follow me, I'm broken-hearted

and you found in the blindness a desire in your heart
buried by silence, a wish in broken parts

I had a vision of you

I had a vision of time brilliantly undefined
measured my love, love only
I'll get a needle and thread from under the bed
and build your wings for flying
and they'll lift you above, away from here
the worry below slowly disappears

I had a vision of you carefully walking through
a wicked world of darkness
Track Name: My Bones
My bones, my bones tell me true
Why you rattle on
My bones, my bones tell me true
Why you rattle on

Turn back, turn back the hands of time
And let me live again
My bones, my bones tell me true
Why you rattle on

My skin, my skin wearin' thin
Cracked beneath the coat
My skin, my skin wearin' thin
Cracked beneath the coat

Sunlight, sunlight faded out
Flood the shadows round
My skin, my skin wearin' thin
Cracked beneath the coat

My bones
Track Name: A Little Crazy
I'm so good at giving up, I wanna give in
I always put up a fight, Tonight I won't win
It's taken me long enough to know what is real
Go on and call my bluff, it's your turn to deal

I wanna be your baby, so love me tonight
It's just a little crazy but take me home tonight

Master of my disguise, I can't be too sure
Of any old compromise cause nothing is pure
So meet me just half the way down to the place
Cause I need to be face to face to smile at our fate

I wanna be your baby, so love me tonight
It's just a little crazy but take me home tonight

Take me home tonight
Track Name: Laundry
I'll wash the laundry again
I can't keep the crumbs from falling on the floor
Dishes are dirty in the sink
I'll tell you I love you once more

I'll wash the laundry again
I can't keep the crumbs from falling on the floor
Dishes are dirty in the sink
I'll tell you I love you once more

What will change when it all stays the same
Only lines on my face tell my age
No stocks, no bonds, no second home
But we build a love to call our own

We work, we save, we give it all away
No time to take a holiday
Sunrise you kiss me goodbye
All day long I wait to kiss your goodnight

So I'll wash the laundry again
I can't keep the crumbs from falling on the floor
Dishes are dirty in the sink
I'll tell you I love you once more

We work, we save, we give it all away
No time to take a holiday
Sunrise you kiss me goodbye
All day long I wait to kiss your goodnight

So I'll wash the laundry again
I can't keep the crumbs from falling on the floor
Dishes are dirty in the sink
I'll tell you I love you
I'll tell you I love you
I'll tell you I love you
I'll tell you I love you once more
Track Name: Gambler
I was sad today
You were far away
Lovely cliché
Long for your embrace

And I wait for you my love

You're a mystery
Just beyond my reach
Chance the odds to see
Your face in every dream

And I wait for you my love
And I wait for you my love

Gambled all my life
For the chance to make it right
Blow a kiss on lucky dice
Will I win this time

I was sad today
You were far away
Hoping we will stay
In the game of love we play

And I wait for you my love
And I wait for you my love
And I wait for you my love
Track Name: Don't Worry Baby
He said don't worry baby everything's gonna work out right
But I don't feel good tonight 'bout where I've been
I'll take it in stride and look to the night
To comfort my tears, hide my fears, 'till morning appears

We're headed down rocky roads traveled before
So many broken hearts bleed after the war
But battles of yesterday can't define what's in store
So lead me and I will run, facing toward the sun, to claim what we've won

You are my now, you are my home
We are standin' together, we are searching alone
You hold my tomorrows, protect all my dreams
Don't let them die, buried by time

He said don't worry baby, everything's gonna be alright
So I put my fears away just for tonight
I'll hold his body close and try to keep warm
Trust the words that he said to rest my weary head and just go to bed
