Track Name: I Bleed
I bleed the color of a rose
Cause I need a way to let you know
How I feel when you say you don't love
Who I am
That is why
Whenever you leave
I Bleed

Verse
I know you laughed but you really meant
That to be content you need an accident
To shake you up and show you when you're wrong
Not just apathy but some agony
A little tragedy in the family
To drag you down where you think you belong
You want the same old song
With something colorful and strong so

Chorus

Verse
I can't understand what you put me through
When I talk to you you don't have a clue
You can't repeat a single word I said
Does someone have to die for you to be surprised
When you close your eyes don't you wonder why
You find it hard to fall asleep in bed?
What the hell is in your head?
You only hurt when you see red

Bridge
Love could be so beautiful if we knew how
To let it all come flowing in but for now

Chorus
I bleed when you say you don't love
Who I am
That is why
Whenever you leave
I Bleed
Track Name: Portland To Portland
I catch a Max across the river
I spend my cash on books at Powell's
I love my yellow bumper sticker
Defending northern spotted owls

I buy a giant bowl of chowder
Beside a quaint New England beach
I try to call you for an hour
But you're impossible to reach

It doesn't matter how together we get
When we still find it feels like we never connect from

Chorus
Portland to Portland
I'm so over keeping this goin'
You think we're soulmates, I think we're through
I'm down in deep water and don't have a clue
We're swimming in two separate oceans
Three thousand miles from
Portland to Portland

Verse
I thought a girl who loves her freedom
Would want a guy who gives her that
I gave you every other weekend
And now I'm glad to give it back

It doesn't matter how together we get
When we still find it feels like we never commit

Chorus

Bridge
Now and then I think of you
But in the end that's all I do
(You know I'd drive the distance)

Chorus (instrumental)
Track Name: Rise And Fall
I will rise when you call my name
Though you don't give me half of what I need
I still fall for all your games
And wonder why I ask you not to leave
Oh it won't be long
Till it all comes down
There'll come a time
When it comes around, wo-oah

Chorus
Rise And Fall
You can't run before you crawl
Get big before you're small
If you do you're bound to lose it all
In the Rise And Fall

Verse
We built an empire in just a day (one fine day)
On nothing but a promise and a smile (now it's burning down)
But Rome burns and you're away (better come back oh yeah)
Playing hard and living in denial (cuz I'll be gone)
It won't be long
Till it all comes down
Gonna come a time
When it comes around, wo-oah

Chorus

Bridge
We'll ride the tidal wave
We'll drown or make the coast
Maybe we'll be saved
But that's what may hurt most

Chorus
Track Name: Happy All Day
If I had a lotta money, here's what I'd do
Buy a ticket for me and a ticket for you
Buy ya cotton candy and a roller coaster ride
Oh, my...
Over Ticklebelly Hill down to Picadilly Square
Up to Saddleback Point to the Renaissance Fair
Singin' Pollywolly Doodle with a belly fulla beans
And scream...

Chorus
Happy all day, Happy all night
Happy to be rockin' in the rain or the sunshine
Takin' my time, no need to rush
Happy to be happy on the super short bus

Verse
Mr. Bojangles, two tangled up feet
Tappin' and a'rappin' to a hippy hop beat
Rubberneck chicken and a whoopee cushion too
For you...
Do the Hully Gully, with a twist and a jerk
Call the boss, say your sick, don't show up for work
This rhyming dictionary doesn't have a single rhyme for
orange

Chorus
Happy all day, Happy all night
Happy to be rockin' in the rain or the sunshine
Takin' my time, no need to rush
Happy to be happy on the super short bus
Track Name: Over Me
Light caste on the bathroom floor
Slides past through the open door
Your smell of smoke upon the walls
Hangs like dusk in coastal trees
And silent pools and halls
I love you all
Over Me, Over Me

Verse
You came angel to my bed
No shame in a land of dead
And scattered ash you breathed a fire
Then you simply let me sleep
And dream when I was tired
You floated high
Over Me (I floated high as could be),
Over Me (but you should know by now)

Bridge
I'm on a train and the sights are flying past
(Your town is beating in the distance)
You're on a plane and the light is fading fast
(Once again I'm feeling the resistance)
We had a plan was it all that much to ask?

Verse
Love now just an accident
Your vow wasn't what you meant
Like Christmas cards on discount shelves
Hell you bought one just for me
And said you wished me well
Oh I can tell
You're Over Me, Over Me
Track Name: Lazarus
You walked right out of the darkest night
You came back down into warm sunlight
I wish I knew what made you turn around
They wrapped your body in oils and cloth
Any hope left had all been lost
They packed you up and then they put you down
Whatever you saw when your life went black
Well it musta been big cause it brought you back

Chorus
I wanna know why
I wanna know how
I wanna feel hope like you must feel now
Whatever it takes
Get me out of my skin
If I have to break down just to feel again

Verse
You look like me but I know you're not
What you've been given can't be bought
If only I could be you just one time
So tie my body in oil and rags
And take away everything I have
So I can feel what I know is truly mine
Whatever you saw when your life went black
Well it musta been big cause it brought you back

Chorus

Bridge
Why do your friends
Hide you away
You'll just forget
More every day

Chorus
...I want to walk on the water
...I want to stand in the fire
...I want to fly in the open
...I want to live in the light

Do I need to go blind
...I want to flow like a fountain
In a blaze of light
Do I need to turn black just to see white
...I want to love like an ocean
Let me be burned
...I want to shine on a mountain
With the hottest coals
And tear me apart so that I can be whole
...I want to glow in the night

I wanna know why
...I want to laugh like a baby
I wanna know how
I wanna feel hope like you must feel now
...I want to roar like a river
Whatever it takes
...I want to howl like a hurricane
Get me out of my skin
If I have to break down just to feel again
Just to feel again
Track Name: No Tears Allowed
I can hold 'em back
Pretend that I'm doin' fine if I have to
I can hold 'em back
Pretend I'm over you
I can wear a mask
With a smile and two happy eyes if I need to
I can wear a mask
Pretend it's all cool

Chorus
I'll keep breathin' in and I'll keep breathin' out
And without a doubt it's a win win
No Tears Allowed
No Tears Allowed

Verse
You can play the game
With a laugh baby cut the cards how you want to
You can play the game
Beat your old fool

Chorus
I'll keep breathin' in and I'll keep bleedin' out
I can paint the town it's a win win
No Tears Allowed
No Tears Allowed

Bridge
So aren't we happy now
We worked it out somehow
Didn't we
You thought that I would die
But look how I survived
No, you're not rid of me

Chorus
I'll keep breathin' in and I'll keep breathin ' out
And without a doubt it's a win win
No Tears Allowed
No Tears Allowed
I'll keep breathin' in and I'll keep bleedin' out
I can paint the town it's a win win
No Tears Allowed
No Tears Allowed
Track Name: Beautiful Wonderful
Where you been hidin' out I haven't seen you in forever
Looks like you could use a little sunshine on your face
We had love way back then
Why not try love again
Make it like it used to be
When you and me were you and me

Chorus
When your heart starts pounding like a stereo
When your head keeps spinning but you can't let go
Isn't it beautiful, wonderful
Wonderful, beautiful
Beautiful, wonderful
Wonderful, beautiful

Verse
See that couple holding' hands how they're smilin' at each other
Sittin' at the corner table of our favorite restaurant
We could be just like them
It could happen again
Make it like it used to be
When you and me were you and me

Chorus

Bridge
Baby the band is playing our song
Come on let's dance all night long

Instrumental first half chorus

Chorus
When your heart starts pounding like a stereo
When your head keeps spinning but you can't let go
Isn't it beautiful, wonderful
Wonderful, beautiful
Beautiful, wonderful
Wonderful, beautiful
Track Name: Wings
Well I lost my wings, now I can't fly
Like a grounded plane fallen from the sky
Yeah, I'm off my game, one reason why
Cause I lost my wings, now I can't fly
Well I lost my fire, but I don't feel cool
And I'm bone tired of bein' played the fool
Sinkin' like a stone, one reason why
Cause I lost my wings, now I can't fly

Verse
I was cruising' through the clear clear blue
Sailin' at high altitude
Didn't need a parachute, no way
But I stayed too long beside the sun
Burned my feathers one by one
I tumbled to the ground and there I lay

Verse
Well I lost my flame, but I'm not put out
Embers remain underneath the doubt
But I'll fan the coals before they die
Yeah I'll find my wings so I can fly
Yeah I'll find my wings so I can fly
Track Name: Always Hopeful
She stands inside the doorway
Shaking like a leaf from waiting there the whole day
She plans only for the moment
She feels, she knows, she believes
Will always come around

She stays when we're together
Cause leaving me alone would never make it better
I try hard to understand what
She feels, she knows, she believes
Will always come around

Chorus
She's Always Hopeful
But something must be wrong
It couldn't be that simple
She's always noble
I wish that I could see
A way that I could be
Like she is with a heart that's always full
And Always Hopeful

Verse
Deep eyes they know what sad is
Whenever I'm in pain she understands what that is
She cries just to let me see that
She feels, she knows, she believes
I'll always come around

Chorus

Bridge
One day when she's gone
The lights will all come on
And I'll wish I could be with her again

Chorus
Always Hopeful
But something must be wrong
It couldn't be that simple
Always noble
I wish that I could see
A way that I could be
Where she is with a heart that's always full
And Always Hopeful
Track Name: You Turn
You were a dancer
You lived for the moment
That's how your world went around
I had no answers
My life was in torment
Till you turned it all upside down
I'd sit in the shadows
You'd spin in the sunlight
Time after time we'd return
You knew I was sad so you often would stop
And hold me when I came to watch
You Turn

Verse
Almost to summer
The winter was broken
Columbine cluttered the field
Twilight we'd run there
Your arms would fly open
We'd twirl until everything reeled
But everything changed
Once again in September
What will it take till I learn?
The color of pain is so hard to recall
But that's what I felt when I saw
You Turn

Bridge
Open, the heart's an unstoppable wheel
Closed in, it hardens like copper and steel

Verse
You were a dancer
You lived in slow motion
That's how your world went around
I had a bad year
I fell in the ocean
And thought I would probably drown
While you've turned the corner
I'm still on some highway
Crossing a bridge I should burn
I pull into nowhere and lie here awake
Wond'ring how I could have made
You Turn
Track Name: Everything Ends
I'm hanging a photo over the place
You made your impression confessing your rage
You and I long ago
So alive and full of hope
Now you sulk I ache
Angry nights and bitter days

Chorus
Everything Ends
Everything fades
Everything passes and withers away
Now look at us
Too late to pretend
Cause everything changes
Everything Ends

Verse
I rent out the bedroom we used to share
I pass by on tiptoe and never go there
On a shelf behind a door
In a box you hide away
Your ghost but I can pray

Chorus
That Everything Ends
Even this pain
Everything passes and withers away
I'll look back at us
This too shall mend
Cause everything changes
Everything Ends

Bridge
I hang on for life to some sweet fantasy
I'm driving in circles still chasing a dream
I dig in my heels resisting the change
Looking for someone, someone to blame

Chorus
Everything Ends
Even this pain
I'll look back at us
This too shall mend
Cause everything changes
Everything Ends
Track Name: I Will Follow You
Was it a dream or was it anything
Or was it my wild imagination?
Did you say what I thought I heard
Or was I lost in translation?

Chorus
I will follow you
To the ends of the earth
Yes, I will follow you
For what that's worth

Verse
You may not know it, but long ago
I felt like my world was in ruins
But your words lifted me to my feet
And made my life worth pursuing

Chorus
I will follow you
To the ends of the earth
Yes, I will follow you
For what that's worth
I will follow you
Till it all burns down
I will follow you
Don't count me out
Track Name: Someone
If I can see the kindness in your blue eyes
Then why
Can't I feel the fire
I want to cherish everything about you
and I do
Or maybe I'm a liar
In a cloud
In the rain
Running down
A window pane

Chorus
You remind me of someone
Someone I've managed to forget
But you remind me of someone
Someone…I haven't met yet

Verse
That pretty little grin that shows your sadness
Inspires madness
But doesn't get me crazed
I'm reaching out for something in the pale blue
just beyond you
out there hovering in the haze
In a room
In a face
shadows fill
an empty (place/space)

Chorus
You remind me of someone
Someone I've managed to forget
But you remind me of someone
Someone…

Bridge
Deja vu and in a flash
The mystery comes rushing back
And suddenly I understand the truth

Chorus
You remind me of someone
Someone I've managed to forget
You remind me of some one
Someone…I haven't met yet
Track Name: Big Whisper
Woke up in bed my skin was a-crawlin'
Inside my head your voice was a-callin'
Calling from so far away
But I can hear it clear as thunder
Every little thing you say
When you come around sounds like a

Chorus
Big Whisper
That creeps up behind and trumpets the truth
A big twister
That sneaks into town just to rip off the roof
To reveal the sun the stars and the moon
The Big Whisper

Verse
I thought I could leave you unattended
Crap I got was not what I intended
Trouble didn't disappear
Pretending there was nothing to it
Now every single thing I hear
When I shut you down sounds like a

Chorus
Bridge
I don't want to lose you
I don't want to lose you now
I've been hard of hearing
Now I've gotta figure out

Chorus
This Big Whisper
(instrumental)
A big twister
That sneaks into town just to rip off the roof
I could board up the windows or listen to you
Show me the sun and the stars and the moon
The Big Whisper
