Track Name: Not Easy
There was a time
I lost my way
I tried to take it day by day

Another time
when I was down
I wondered
What I had found

It's not easy
Sometimes

A friend of mine
had lost her
I tried to help her find it

Another friend had gotten lost
He was going round and round
but he couldn't get off

It's not easy
Sometimes

You couldn't find it
You couldn't find it
Track Name: Phone
Riding in the car
I am on my own
Quickly through the street
Then I go back home

No one is alone as long as they are on the phone

Thinking about you
I am dialing now
Tell you how I feel
But I don't know how

No one is alone as long as you will say hello

Call me all the time
say that you are mine

Call me all the time
say that you are mine

Call me one more time
Tell me one more time
I don't want to know
it's the last time you said hi
Track Name: Be A Waiter
I've got some things to tell you now
I'd rather be a waiter
And I'll come sliding down your aisle
I'd like to take your order

I want to be the one who knows

I've got some things to tell you now
I'd rather be a dancer
A little dream I've had for a while
Been looking for the answer

I want to be up on my toes

It's not the meaning of, the meaning of love

I've got some things to tell you now
I'd rather be a sailor
And I could leave this town for a while
Goodbye to all my failure

I want to be the one who goes

It's not the meaning of love
It's not the meaning of, the meaning of love
Track Name: Make Me Melting
make home where is warm
worm it will swim to where warm is
it will swim where is warm

make me melting down
two in the morning is high tide
teen will 2 if you try

in your blood on my way
why your tongue is ballet
cool your brain complicate
in your blood on my way

i cannot see
behind your eye blocking me

i cannot see
behind your eye blocking me

now,too many trying
dime in your doorway is ten cent
sleep in doorway is crime

so i make home where's warm
worm it will swim to where warm is
it will swim where is warm

in your blood on my way
why your tongue is ballet
cool your brain complicate
in your blood, wash away
Track Name: Days Gone By
Like the sea and sky
you can be there if you try

Like the days gone by
can't get em back if you try

No one told me
It would be
Half as hard as it was

This is for
The one I knew
Try to make it just for you

This is for
Someone like you
Try to make your dreams come true
Track Name: Eastern Seaboard
The Eastern seaboard
is closer now
It's closing down

A crowded town
but a lonely street
the city scene

We've come so far
So far to go
We can do more
I can do more

From coast to coast
there's an emptiness
It's pretty strange

The place I came from
well
It's gone

We've come so far
So far to go
We can do more
I can do more

The Eastern seaboard
is closer now
It's closing down
Track Name: There's a Place
There's a place
that people go
forever
If you get there
Let me know
whatever

I would like to get there one day
And if I do, I'll let you know
It would be a great place to sleep
So I can rest there for eternity

There's a place
where people go
That's better
If you get there
please send me
a letter

I would like to get there one day
And if I do, I'll let you know
It would be a great place to sleep
So I can rest there for eternity
Track Name: Wrong Town
It's the wrong town
for someone who
is never sure what they want
It's the wrong town
for someone who
is looking for a friend

It's the wrong town
for someone who
is never sure what they need
It's the right town
for someone
who is looking for a trend

Hi low
Hi low
Hi low now
I go
I go
I go
Hi low
Hi low
hi low now

Can this really be
the place to make our dreams come true?
can we say for sure
that this is really a place
for us?

It's the wrong town
to be alone
and find someone who needs you

it's the right town
to see a face
everywhere you turn


Hi low
Hi low
Hi low now
I go
I go
I go
Hi low
Hi low
hi low now
Track Name: Two Things
Two things that often come up for me
Social engagements and job responsibility

I heard a good way to deal with stress
Is staying in moment and not invite catastrophe

I'm enchanted by your offer
I would love to

I have contacts
up and down
the north atlantic

I remind you
of my father
that's his picture

quick order lunch come right to door
I can, I need
should print receipt

Two things that often come up for me
Social engagements and job responsibility

I'm enchanted by your offer
I would love to

I have contacts
up and down
the north atlantic

I remind you
of my father
that's his picture

Living should be easy
If you concentrate

Jogging to my car
I am 15 minutes late

Chosen from the start
It's so good to be alive now

Playing the lead
it's so good to be alive now
Track Name: Smith, St. John or Pierre
who can i see to get outta here
the man in the coat can you repeat his name
thought it was smith or st. john or pierre get me outta here

why do i fly through the atmosphere
land from above all look the same
thought it was spain or st paul or montclair get me outta here

how do i get them to believe me now
where to present all my evidence
i know that it's true & so clear can you tell where i take a bow

who can i see to get out of here
who can i be that is someone else
maybe i'm smith or st. John or pierre can we get me out
Track Name: I Know Now
I know now it's true

There's a place that we can go
If you listen, I'll tell you how

I know now that we
can escape if we want to
get away if we have to -oo

There is nothing more to say
I know that cause I tried it

If I only knew the way
we could go, we could go there

And we all could sing this song
In a place that we can be (that we feel free)

Everyone could sing a long
This I know, this i know now (just like this, just like this now)

I see now, it's clear

There's a sound that we can hear
If you listen, i'll show you how

Things have changed around

What was sure, isn't certain
Like they pulled back the curtain wow
