Track Name: My Way Home
The words were hanging in the air
When I hit the ground
You’re leaving me for another guy
Moving to another town
You couldn't even bear to say
You might see me around
But for now.....

CHORUS
I’m driving by your house
On my way home
It’s not just my way I’ve lost you know
There’s a time for holding on
And one for letting go
I’m driving by your house
On my way home

Of all the places I could be
Of all the things I should’ve seen
Right here, right now it seems to me
I’m wasting my life
Wasting my life
I believe, yeah, I believe
There’s good things waiting for me
But for now
For now.....

CHORUS
I’m driving by your house
On my way home
It’s not just my way I’ve lost you know
There’s a time for holding on
And one for letting go
I’m driving by your house
On my way home

Track Name: Did I Wake You?
Did I wake you? Were you dreaming?
I know you’re lonely but you’re not alone
I’m not sleeping, my bed is an ocean
I’m going crazy of what I don’t know

CHORUS
Going out of my head just thinking about you
Drowning here in my bed, I’m sinking without you
I’m drowning here in my bed, I’m sinking without you
I’m going out of my head, going out of control

You don’t call me when I really need you to
You’re leaving me lonely and out of control
I’m not sleeping, my bed is an ocean
I’m going crazy of what I don’t know

CHORUS
Going out of my head just thinking about you
Drowning here in my bed, I’m sinking without you
I’m drowning here in my bed, I’m sinking without you
I’m going out of my head, going out of control

Did I wake you? Were you dreaming?
I know you’re lonely but you’re not alone
I’m not sleeping, my bed is an ocean
I’m going crazy of what I don’t know

Going out of my head just thinking about you
Drowning here in my bed, I’m sinking without you
I’m drowning here in my bed, I’m sinking without you
I’m going out of my head, going out of control
Out of control

Track Name: I Wish That It Was Raining
Another sunny afternoon, I wish that it was raining
'Cause I can't suffer one more perfect day without complaining
It’s time to pack my things I’m coming home
Back where the weather suits my mood to be alone

CHORUS
So lift me up don’t let me down
Show me a way out of this god-forsaken town
What’s so hard about goodbyes?
Yeah, there's nothing to it but don't you look me in the eyes
'Cause I just don't realise

Another sunny afternoon, the days so long and lazy
The breeze paints ripples on my swimming pool, it’s enough to drive you crazy
So come on let those thunderclouds come rolling in
I am leaving here tomorrow and I won't be back again

CHORUS
So lift me up don’t let me down
Show me a way out of this god-forsaken town
What’s so hard about goodbyes?
Yeah, there's nothing to it but don't you look me in the eyes
'Cause I just don't realise

BRIDGE
The way you're looking at me once was enough to change my mind
But all it takes is one look up to a blue and cloudless sky

So come on let those thunderclouds come rolling in
I am leaving here tomorrow and I won't be back again

CHORUS
So lift me up don’t let me down
Show me a way out of this god-forsaken town
What’s so hard about goodbyes?
Yeah, there's nothing to it but don't you look me in the eyes
Don’t you look me in the eyes
Don’t you look me in the eyes 'cause I just don't realise

Track Name: She Made Me Love Her
You know she made me love her
You know she made me love her
She held a gun to my head
And she made me love her
She said if I won’t hold her
Said if I wouldn’t hold her
She’d turn the gun on herself
She’d turn the gun on herself

CHORUS
But she cried wolf
One too many times
What she told as truth
I heard as lies

And now she’s right here with me
She’s always right here with me
Can’t get her out of my mind
She’s always right here with me
Sometimes she whispers in my ear
She whispers softly in my ear
A little love was all I needed
With a little love she still be here

CHORUS
But she cried wolf
One too many times
What she told as truth
I heard as lies

Track Name: Summer Days Like These
We got blue skies, we got sunshine
We got the whole day free and a bottle of red wine
We got a beat-up old car and a battered steel guitar
Big, big plans but we didn’t drive that far

CHORUS
We’re gonna ride down to the coast
Watch the waves roll in the breeze
And we’ll thank the Lord for summer days like these

We got good friends, we got loose ends
Been ‘round here a while but still retained some innocence
When the summer’s fine and hot we’re not rooted to the spot
Just get up, get out and think about
All the good things that we got

CHORUS
We’re gonna drive up to the hills
Feel the wind blow through the trees
And we’ll thank the Lord for summer days like these

You better take it while you can
‘Cause it won’t be ‘round for long
I can promise you life’s not so sweet
When all the sugar’s gone

We got a beat-up old car
And battered steel guitar

CHORUS
We’re gonna ride down to the coast
Watch the waves roll in the breeze
And we’ll thank the Lord for summer days
Thank the Lord for summer days
Thank the Lord for summer days like these

Track Name: I Don't Think She Heard
I have a hard time
Believing that things will get better
And I can’t be certain
Of how much I want things to change
Yeah, I once caught a glimpse of the future
The blink of an eye all confusion and blur
And I once think I said that I loved her
But it was under my breath
And I don’t think she heard

I’ve stopped believing
That one day we all find our salvation
Oh, I need a new life
‘Cause this one’s worn out at the knees
Yeah, I once caught a glimpse in the mirror
The face staring back looking lost and disturbed
And I once think I said that I loved her
But it was under my breath
And I don’t think she heard

CHORUS
No I don’t think she heard when I whispered forever
I don’t think she heard when I begged her to stay
It’s a mystery to me how you just couldn’t hear
All the things that I just didn’t say

INSTRUMENTAL

CHORUS
No I don’t think she heard when I whispered forever
I don’t think she heard when I begged her to stay
It’s a mystery to me how you just couldn’t hear
All the things
All the things that I just didn’t say

Track Name: Unlikely
I’ve changed
I’ve grown
Got lost
Came home
My life’s a big mess
I wouldn't clean it up
Said I’m sorry
But you know I didn’t mean it

CHORUS
Do you love me? Do you like me?
I feel that’s so unlikely
I’m asking
Politely
Don’t you hurt me?
Won’t you please come quietly?

You want
Those things
You know
I can’t give to you
You’ve got a mean streak
You’ve got a bad heart
There’s a question
That I should have asked you from the start

CHORUS
Do you love me? Do you like me?
I know it’s so unlikely
I’m asking
Politely
Don’t you hurt me?
Won’t you please come quietly?

Track Name: Watch TV
There’s a better place
I thought I heard you say
Can you draw a map?
Can you help me find a way?
It was a cry for help
Was a heart-felt plea
Could you show me just a little sympathy?

CHORUS
There’s something rotten
In the state of my heart
I’m bruised and broken
And I’m falling apart
As the house falls down around me
I just sit here and watch you
Watch TV

You took a photograph
It didn’t look like me
Its funny how a goofy smile
Can make me look so happy
It was a cry for help
Was a heart-felt plea
Could you show me just a little sympathy?

CHORUS
There’s something rotten
In the state of my heart
I’m bruised and broken
And I’m falling apart
As the house falls down around me
I just sit here and watch you
Watch TV

Track Name: How I'm Gonna Let You Down
You left me on some other day
Guess I knew that you’d have to go away
I said I’d call you, girl
I said I’d send a letter
But being there with you now
Would make me feel much better

CHORUS
How I’m gonna let you down
When I no longer come around
All my reasons why
Are buried deep inside
And it don’t make me proud
Of how I’m gonna let you down

So don’t you put your trust in me
‘Cause I’d betray it for a little sympathetic company
Don’t you bother to write me
Don’t pick up that phone
‘Cause I can’t promise
That you’ll find me on my own

CHORUS
How I’m gonna let you down
When I no longer come around
All my reasons why
Are buried deep inside
And it don’t make me proud
Of how I’m gonna let you down
Of how I’m gonna let you down
Of how I’m gonna let you down

Track Name: Never Good Enough
She spoke a language she called love
Used words that I misunderstood
And my replies, I knew, were little more than bluff
They were never good enough
Never good enough

She made me feel like I belonged
She knew the words to all my songs
Stayed around ‘til something better came along
‘Cause I was never good enough
Never good enough
I was never good enough
Never good enough

BRIDGE
And though she never said those words
I heard them just the same
She never points a finger
But I’m the one to blame
I can’t remember when this seed of doubt
Was planted in my brain
But it’s been growing
It’s been growing
And I’m going down again

There are some things you don’t need to say
And there are thoughts you have
That your sweet face betrays
No need for explanations, baby, it’s ok
I was never good enough
Never good enough
I was never good enough
Never good enough
