Track Name: Feels Like Love
My heart leaps back and forth
I don’t know what it is that you do to me
Feels like love but I’m not sure
That I can compete with whatever it is you need

I wanna give you my heart
But I don’t know how or where to start
So pick me up when you’re around
We can give it a shot and try to work things out

I’m waiting for your call
So ring me up if you think it’s worth the talk
My heart is going wild
And only you can give me what I desire
Track Name: Try
Can’t find the right words
To describe these feelings
My mind keeps spinning round
The same ideas

Can’t find the right time
To leave this madness
Behind
Behind

We always wanted to
Be the same
Always talked about
Beating the game
But I’ve come to
Realize
It’s much harder
To try

Can’t you see
This is where
We were always
Meant to be

Dreamers stuck
In our own little worlds
Never able to find
The right words

We always wanted to
Be the same
Always talked about
Beating the game
But I’ve come to
Realize
It’s much harder
To try

Can’t find the right words
To describe these feelings
My mind keeps spinning
Round the same ideas
Track Name: Same Ol' Story
Wake up every morning
With the same ol’ melody
Walking down the same ol’ hallways
Watching the same ol’ TV
It’s the same ol’ story
Over and over again
But I gotta remain silent
Unless I’ve got something to say

Same ol’ shit keeps running
On that same ol’ radio
It’s time for a change
But they don’t seem to know
It’s the same ol’ story
Over and over again
But I gotta remain silent
Unless I’ve got something to say

Now we keep on walking
On that same ol’ dusty road
Talking something ‘bout freedom
Then something ‘bout control
It’s the same ol’ story
Over and over again
But I gotta remain silent
Unless I’ve got something to say

It is my generation
We just don’t seem to care
Something bothers you
Speak up if you dare
It’s the same ol’ story
Over and over again
But I gotta remain silent
Unless I’ve got something to say

Well if you can’t decide
If you’re right or wrong
Make up your mind
And don’t bother for too long
It’s the same ol’ story
Over and over again
But I gotta remain silent
Unless I’ve got something to say

There ain’t no such thing as
No risk involved
Sometimes you gotta dare
And sometimes you gotta fall
It’s the same ol’ story
Over and over again
But I gotta remain silent
Unless I've got something to say
Track Name: More Than a Dream
Do we really have to grow old
Do we really need to let go
Of all the dreams of our youth
Will we ever get close to
Becoming who we thought we would
Or will reality catch up

Well maybe it's just a feeling
Something I believe in
But I believe
It's gotta be
It's gotta be more than a dream

Do we really waste our years
Will we even count the tears
We'll shed over love
Should we really settle down
Find ourselves solid ground
And watch the years go by

Well maybe it's just a feeling
Something I believe in
But I believe
It's gotta be
It's gotta be more than a dream

When we have children of our own
Will we still be holding on
To what we should have done
Will they wanna be like us
Or will they try to scrape off the dust
That has settled on our souls

Well maybe it's just a feeling
Something I believe in
But I believe
It's gotta be
It's gotta be more than a dream
Track Name: Unloved
So many things you have to learn
Now that you realize it’s your turn
Will you stand the test
Just giving it your very best
Or may you lose the race at last

I know she ain’t expecting much
But I don’t know if I can give her enough
Oh that woman she’s perfect for me
Never gives me any grief
But I don’t know if it’s meant to be

She’s got the power to turn this around
The might to turn my whole life upside down
Then I may sing a happy song
May smile, may live, may feel the heat of the sun
And I won’t need to walk on unloved
Track Name: The Dream of You & Me
A day can feel like a lifetime
If nobody’s around
And people just keep singing
The same old song out loud
You don’t know how much I love you
And there’s nobody I could tell
But the longer I wait
The more it feels like hell

And if you don’t come to save me
There’s no one else that will

In this world of strangers
There was nobody I knew
And you gave me someone
To look up to
And if the sense of this whole chase
Was just to give me faith
I believe there’s a world
Outside these prison gates

And together we
Could leave this all behind
Start a new life

As long as there’s my songs to sing
And as long as there’s you and me
I can call
Any place home
Maybe all your dreams come true
If only I believe in you
Imagine our lives like
Fantasy

And even if
Those dreams fade away
I’ve got you today
You’ve got me today
I’ve got you today
Track Name: The Ocean
It’s the quarrels and the little things
That bring us down
The same problems
Just keep coming around
That’s why it never lasts
That’s why it never stays
That’s why I sleep alone
That’s why I appreciate

The warmth of your smile
The sound of your voice
The depth in your eyes
Your laughter full of joy
Your hair flowing down your chest
Like a river wild
The glow of your ruby lips
And your immaculate style

I begin to doubt myself
When I contemplate
The actions that led me here
And the challenges I face
The search for happiness
Seems like an endless pursuit
But I cherish every bit of it
That’s why I cherish you

The warmth of your smile
The sound of your voice
The depth in your eyes
Your laughter full of joy
Your hair flowing down your chest
Like a river wild
The glow of your ruby lips
And your immaculate style

Ahead lies an ocean
Unexplored
A variety of emotions
I used to ignore
The words I left unspoken
Are locked behind this door
But once this gate is opened
It can’t be closed no more
Track Name: Love Confusion
All this confusion
‘bout the illusion
Of love
Wears me out

I’m staying sober
But my life ain’t over
And I can’t promise
I’ll always be as strong

As I’m now
Cause somehow
I feel poison
Weakening my faith

The people that are free
They’re unlike me
They believe
In destiny

But from what I see
Some things shouldn’t be
The way they are
Round here

I trust in you
To prove
Me wrong
Like you did before
Track Name: Beyond the Sky
Is it so hard
To be myself
Lately I feel like
I’m forced to be someone else

When the curtain falls
We play our role
Acting like
We just don’t know

That there’s an ocean
Behind the ridgeline
There’s a million stars
Beyond our sky
That we are born
With our pride
And still choose to live a lie

Our greatest wish
Becomes our deepest fear
If we decide
To lock ourselves in here

The prison walls
Seem too high to climb
But I’ll bust out
Or at least I'll die trying

Cause there’s an ocean
Behind the ridgeline
There’s a million stars
Beyond our sky
Cause we are born
With our pride
And I don’t want to live a lie

There’s an ocean
Behind the ridgeline
There’s a million stars
Beyond our sky
We are born
With our pride
So why, why, why
Why do we chose to live a lie
Track Name: Moving On
The clock’s ticking
While I’m standing here
Staring
Into the mirror
The reflections
Of all my dreams
Walking by
As if they didn’t exist

We keep running round in circles
Always the same ol’ thing
And I wonder
What might have been
If there were different
Rules to this game
Maybe you could
Be here with me

No way of knowing
If I’m right
No way of knowing
What could happen tonight
But I’m
Trapped in this cave
No way of knowing
If I can escape

We keep running round in circles
Always the same ol’ thing
And I wonder
What might have been
If there were different
Rules to this game
Maybe you could
Be here with me

Time has come
To leave this town
Cause I won’t keep
Hanging around
Putting
It all on the line
Cause I ignored
The warning signs

Wanna feel the freedom
Of the interstate
Then settle down
Live in a big estate
Somewhere
Far from home
Maybe out on the prairie
Where the buffalo roam
Track Name: No Second Chance
It’s been a long and rocky ride
And I still need to decide
Which way I wanna go

The challenges we’ve faced so far
Have defined who we are
And now we chose our own path

The days are growing shorter now
The months just fly by somehow
And before we know it we lost the years we wanted to live

But I won’t let them take it away
I won’t spend my time chasing yesterday
And you know what they say

You won’t get
No second chance
You can’t do it
Over again

You’ve got time
Spend it wise
Don’t hesitate
And don’t think twice

Our future flies on silver wings
We all chose the name of the game
And the rules by which we play
Track Name: About to Break
About to break
No time for mistakes
There ain’t no place
Where I could feel safe
Fear of defeat
Of being here pointlessly
Like a fish in the ocean
Wide and deep

I’m just one of many of a kind
But they found what I can’t find
The search well documented in my lies
Soon I’m gonna have to pay the price

My future at stake
About to part ways
While anger and doubts
Infiltrate
The place I call home
In the dangerzone
I can feel them now
Reaching out for my soul

I hold the matches to start the fire
To burn down all I require
To succeed in a world of pathetic liars
And all it needs is a spark to light the fire

I take the blame
For playing this game
So why are you the one
Feeling ashamed
Of who I turned out to be
After all these years
Now walking away
Destination unclear

I didn't want it to be this way
But things are about to change
And now that it’s time to say – goodbye
I hope we'll only remember good times
