Track Name: Follow
Today was the day I saw
The Meaning of my life in all a different way
It hit me before but now I’m bolder to answer

If you weren’t my friend you’d be now
You came into my life at just the perfect time
And sang me a song in the key of love be the anthem
Let love be the anthem

And I feel it
Darling I need it
So I follow

Whether or not I stay
As long as that I know that I had made it ride
We were given the chance and we did our best to take it

Your every command I obey
From now until forever till the end of time
For every One lost there’s One laid up in laughter
Forever and after

And I feel it
You give me an easy pill to swallow
So I follow
Follow
Track Name: Do You Feel Like Making Love?
Got nothing on my mind today
Today is mine I own it
No one to stand up in my way
I’ve got a plan and they know it

Don’t know how you feel about it
Do you feel like making love?

I’ve seen you ‘round this club before
You are the sweetest dancer
While everybody knows your name
It’s killing me please answer

Don’t know how you feel about me
Do you feel like making love?

All in my own defense
The thought of you and me makes perfect sense to me

The night is young and so are we
We make a perfect couple
Stick around a while you’ll see
Even you can’t burst this bubble

Don’t know if you’re cool to drive
Do you feel like making love?

Don’t know how you feel about me
Do you feel like making love?
Track Name: 3 Chords
My love you are near you are mine
No words, no tears of wasted time
If you feel me come

At last I am here I am yours
Only you hold the key to my doors
If you feel me come
If you feel this come on

With these three chords

Take what you can from my heart
Is it clear that I love who you are?
If you feel me come
If you feel this come on

It’s calling on you
Coming for you
With these three chords I’m calling for you
Coming for you
Track Name: Not Like the Man
You haven’t made love in oh how forever it feels
You’re fighting the feeling to turn on your heels
Forget what you’re told and who you wanted to sleep with tonight

You haven’t had long to make up your mind
So don’t miss your chance to do what is right
Wait for the call ‘cause you know that it’s coming
It’s all right

It’s not like the man doesn’t care
It’s not like the man wished he wasn’t there
It’s not like the man

Thousands of guys might wish they were me
Throw back a beer and play Rock & Roll until three
Be with the girls with the loose inhibitions every night
And yet you talk of a soldier who is so far away
Who’s fighting for you and for me and the day
That he’ll come back home and you can be married
He just might

And that’s why the man needs you to be true
It’s not like the man could fool around on you
It’s not like the man knows who you’re talking to
It’s not like the man can’t still be loving you

You haven’t made love in oh how forever it feels
You’re fighting the feeling to turn on your heels
Forget what you’re told and who you wanted to sleep with tonight

You haven’t had long to make up your mind
So don’t miss your chance to do what you know is right
Wait for the call ‘cause you know that it’s coming
It’s all right

It’s not like the man doesn’t know
It’s not like the man wished it wasn’t so
It’s not like the man
Track Name: The Taste of Making Out
Kiss me
Touch me
Squeeze me
Cry ‘til you laugh it would please me

Truly
Madly
Deeply
How I want you to stay and release me

Girl I’d like to show it
And a girl like you should know it

Things aren’t quite so simple
Should you be twenty three and be looking at me for the answer?
Because I think you could do better
If you just look at the way that he’s been bringing you down like a cancer

Girl I’d like to show it
And a girl like you should know it

So that it’s not how it sounds
It’s the taste of making out all her war-torn letters
It’s the taste of making out with my best friend’s girl
And I try my best to believe her and receive her
Should I be letting it in?
Track Name: Dance, Jasmine, Dance
Jasmine,

I’m not going to fake it. I think you look pretty naked. That’s all I’ve got to say. If you’ll excuse me, just what are you doing to me? You know tomorrow’s not mine to see but I’ll be hoping for your call.

Are you waiting for a man to come save you? Will he save your soul? Are you afraid that your next dance will be your last chance to have and to hold?

Dance, Jasmine, dance.

This penitentiary will take you to university. You’ll walk away with your own degree and it will make you feel so proud. But you’re a pretty girl bearing all for an ugly world. Believe me it hurts to know that this world is all you see.

I can see it on your face you’re close to crying - close to dying now. I feel it on the lace that holds your dollar down.

Dance, Jasmine, dance.
While you dance the night away, I’ll hang around.

Jasmine - I’m not going to fake it, but I think you look pretty naked. Are you hoping that’s what I’d say? Are you waiting for a man? I’ll be that man.
Track Name: The Cloud Factory
There is a man who makes clouds
That shoot from the factory over my house
And all of the children are indoors
Their noses to windows as the rain pours

The cloud factory
It opened on a Tuesday
And then on Wednesday brought us down
The cloud factory
They cancelled all the ball games
The day the factory came to town

I took it upon me to make tracks
I found it so easy to follow the clouds back
There was him pulling levers and with a fever I spoke
I said “what you doing man your machine’s broke!”

He said

“The cloud factory, while it’s certainly not my best friend
You know it feeds my family
The cloud factory is in soundest operation
It lets us know why we want to be in the sunshine.”
Track Name: I Wonder
Each morning I wake up feeling
each breath is a waste of precious time
The sun in the window tells me
that everything good will come right on time
And that’s fine

But I wonder when that will be
Because I’m tired and this is killing me
Still I wonder most of all is where you are my love
And if it's anywhere I am at all?

I’m constantly moving somewhere
Perpetual motion man is me
My memories are boxes baby
And the more that I go I can never leave
Don’t you see?

That I wonder if this all works out
And I’m tired and afraid I’ll never have it figured out
And I wonder darling will you still call if on the day you find me
And I won’t be there?

I keep hoping this landslide will get me to, will bring me to great heights
I keep hoping this landslide will bring me to and will bring you too

But I wonder when that will be
Because I’m tired and this is killing me
Still I wonder most of all is where you are my love
And is it anywhere I am at all?

I wonder
Track Name: She's Getting Away From Me
Today is my day
I’m telling her just how I feel
Words they can’t explain
It’s deep inside and I know it’s real

I put on my best shirt
Because she wanted to meet with me

I wait
I break
She’s getting away from me
I’m late
She is taken
She’s getting away from me

Coffee and a cigarette
is all the time she’ll afford for me
We sit and talk about the weather
Not whether or not she will leave him for me

And I’ve been biding my time
But love I can’t wait forever

I wait
and I break
She’s getting away from me
I’m late and forsaken
She’s getting away from me
Track Name: All Quiet On the Blackstone Line
The world I know it is changing
and so must I
There wasn’t time for reflection
It was a matter of do or die
Now what I want is
what I’m looking for
Is just a piece of the answer if you got it
All is quiet on the Blackstone line

I was a spirited solider
in a distant war
I knew who we were fighting
But didn’t know what I was fighting for
What I want is
Is just a piece of time
That I never knew I had until I lost it
All is quiet on the Blackstone line

It’s quiet…

Now all is quiet in the valley
where I once held my gun
I am the sole survivor
And now that the war is won
What I want is just what I can’t have
And I’ll be looking around forever

All is quiet in the valley
In my heart
All is quiet
Track Name: Happens To Me Every Time
I don’t remember a feeling so right
And I don’t remember the city this bright
It’s hard to imagine I’ve never been here before

But now we are here
And don’t it look pretty this time of the year?
I think about it and how I’m wanting it more and more

Oh it’s been a really long while
And it happens to me every time
I see your beautiful smile
And it happens to me every time

I cannot buy you diamonds and pearls
But with all my convictions I could conquer the world
Just say the word dear and I’ll prove it to you that it’s true

There’s something about it that I can’t define
But as long as you’re with me I know that it’s mine
And I want to live this over and over again

Oh I see the meaning of life
And it happens to me every time
I see your beautiful smile
And it happens to me every time

Every breath that I take, Every move that I make, Every morning I wake up

All through the miles, Love I’ve been found
Track Name: Nothing Ever Stays the Same
I’ve been taking my time and slowing down as of late
And lately it’s better
I’ve been looking up words and going out in the rain
Getting wetter and wetter
I’ve been calling you up and you’ve been coming around
We get wasted and wasted
Have a laugh and a cry and see our lives going by
Can you taste it?

Yeah it haunts me
Yeah it haunts me maybe all because
Nothing ever happens at all

I take a walk by the school and see the faces have changed
Still it’s as boring as ever
If I could do it again you know I won’t change a thing
I say no way no never
And as much as I try to find a place I can hide
In this memory forever
I will only get burned knowing I never learned
It gets better

These places define me
And yeah they remind me of
the world it is turning, it keeps turning on
And even when the world knows me by name
Nothing ever stays the same
Track Name: Strangest Place
I remember when I hit town I was young and was full of it
I was running when I hit ground and I made you make sure of it
I was thinking if it’s alright stealing kisses from you on the sidelines
Put me in the light and then I want to get out of it

People they talk about me
Using words quite beyond compare
And I know it’s the same
Whether I leave or I stay

Here we are in a strangest place
Here we are

It’s been a while since I saw home so I had to go back a bit
To remember just what you said that I fell completely in love with it
I’ve been thinking through my life
I’ve been thinking of you and all the good times
Now I don’t cry at night because you helped me make fun of it

People they talk about it
But are always the ones who lose
Wanting more, keeping score
But these are the games that they choose

Here we are in a strangest place
Here we are in a righteous place
Here we are in a strangest place
Here we are

Here we are
