Track Name: LONELY WORLD
LONELY WORLD

Such a boy, found his luck
Good as gold, but it wasn't enough

Sometimes we live in a lonely world,
Sometimes we live in a lonely world

Met a girl, kept him still
Broke a heart that just couldn't be filled

Sometimes we live in a lonely world,
Sometimes we live in a lonely world

Oh, you got a beautiful life
Oh, it's such a beautiful life

Sometimes we live in a lonely world,
Sometimes we live

What is love, what is wealth
When you're all by yourself?

Track Name: ALMOST BLUE
ALMOST BLUE

Spilled my conscience on a well-worn floor,
A forlorn stranger only out for more,
Clearly over yeah, but not quite through,
Almost blue

And restless hearts are like sleepless nights,
Undercover yet plain in sight,
We make the motions 'cause we think it's true,
Almost blue, almost blue

And who we think we are, may have nothing to do
The heart will make the call
Almost ready, almost blue

We hold our promises in open hands,
Slippin', tumblin' like grains of sand,
But we keep on smilin' like we always do,
Almost blue, almost blue

Track Name: I AM TOMORROW
I AM TOMORROW

You say you love me for what I'm not
You're going about it all wrong
It's not the things that I haven't got
That keep you hanging 'round for so long

I hold your ticket in my hand
I guarantee you the next flight home
But I've been known to change my plans
And leave you standing with a suitcase
In your hand and all alone

I am tomorrow
I'm every hope you've ever had
I hold your dreams, I hold your sorrows
But I don't come with guarantees
So you better start believing in today

You say I'm only a day away
That I'm the best friend you never had
Well I may never show my face
But I can trade that rainy day
For the good day you never had

Oooh

You say you love me for what I'm not
You're going about it all wrong

I am tomorrow
I'm every hope you've ever had
I hold your dreams, I hold your sorrows
'Cause I am tomorrow
I am

Track Name: CONNECTIONS
CONNECTIONS

She shakes her head, shrugs it off
Deep down she knows it's not meant to be,
Cross town the minute hand closes like a cell
And he ain't getting free

It won't be long 'til daylight comes
It won't be long at all

As gray skies cast away the shadow smiles
Of people like you and me,
Look in our eyes, no surprise,
Love and consolation is what we need

And it won't be long 'til daylight comes
It won't be long at all,
No, it won't be long

Connections are all we got
We got to be good to each other,
Connections are all we got
We got to believe in one another, oh

Connections are all we got
We got to reach one another, oh
Connections are all we got
We got to believe in each other, oh

While you're shadowboxing with the soul, you turn around,
Before you know life's gone it's way,
So wager on love and care,
Find comfort in the folks you share with every day

Track Name: BEAUTIFUL
BEAUTIFUL

Sunrise, clear away these dark skies,
When traffic in my mind is at a standstill
And so far away like a million miles, you are

Take me where your blue skies shine,
Like heaven on this heart of mine,
Your memory is so sublime
And beautiful, beautiful, so beautiful

And so with time comes age
Feelings change and pictures fade,
Now up there can you hear me when I call out for you?
Do angels love you like I do?
I really do…

Please take me where your blue skies shine,
Like heaven on this heart of mine,
Your memory is so sublime
And beautiful, beautiful
Take me where your blue skies shine,
Over me like sweet sunlight,
No I never wanna say goodbye to you, oooh

Like summer ending, you left and a part of me died
Now I've been learning to fly
But these heavy wings don't take me very high

Take me where your blue skies shine,
Like heaven on this heart of mine,
No I never wanna say goodbye,
To you (so beautiful)

Track Name: UNDER THE GUN
UNDER THE GUN

She's on the run, lives by her name,
Under the gun again, but who cares much anyway
The course of action for satisfaction
Is a c hain reaction, woah

Locked in the dark, caught in the blame,
This is no ordinary ''who-dunnit" anyway,
Just another night

But with her arms around me,
Yeah, I know it's gonna be alright
Holding tight lovingly,
Skies are blue and stars are free tonight
So warm and gracefully,
Everything is gonna be alright

Not that it's wrong, but it's not the same
Sometimes the ordinary rules don't apply anyway,
This proclamation, miscommunication,
Is pure frustration, oh

But with her arms around me
Yeah, I know it's gonna be alright
Holding tight lovingly,
Skies are blue and stars are free tonight
It's such a way to be,
And I know it's gonna be alright

When she's gone - a blue it washes over me
When she's gone - her love will set me free
When she's gone - her love is all around
Always looking over me, when she's gone

She's on the run, lives by her name,
Under the gun again, but who cares much anyway

Track Name: THROW ME A LINE
THROW ME A LINE

This is my life, this is the road for me,
I hope to take what is true
Giving back to you what I have found,
Now once in a while, a feeling comes over me
Like a wave passing by
Lifts me high just to knock me down

if you throw me a line,
Well, I might just get it in time
Don't leave me for dead,
Been drowning in the thoughts in my head
Won't you give me a sign,
As stars align from the highest point of Heaven
We'll clear away these clouds and let a good love shine
Let it shine,
If you throw me a line

Guess it's up to me, to live my life honestly,
But there's a ache in my heart
Where my hopefulness used to be,
I try to keep it in mind
But sometimes it's hard for me,
I know good days will come around again

(ch)

And if I keep my eyes open wide,
And if I keep my head held high,
Well maybe I'll be one with myself,
And one's a good place to start again

Track Name: BEST PLANS NEVER MADE
BEST PLANS NEVER MADE

Flowers to Ringo, courtesy Paul,
Kerosene, lightning, ashes for all
Livin' on empty, lookin' for fame,
An evil intention by no other name

The best plans never made at all,
The last thing ever meant to turn you on

Greetings from Lagos, the center of style,
The back-alley swagger, the miracle mile,
Reckless on replay, knowledge on mute
Exit the freeway for the alternate route

The best plans never made at all,
The last thing ever meant to turn you on

Load up the shotgun, commit the crime
Head for the border, tequila & lime,
No favored nation, no Heavenly guilt
Approaching damnation, dressed to the hilt

The best plans never made at all,
The last thing ever meant to turn you on

Track Name: GOLDEN STATE
GOLDEN STATE

Golden State, a state of mind,
Morning light on a freeway sign
I believe the day will come,
When love will shine over everyone, oh

Golden State summer, silver moon highway
Blue skies forever, follow them my way

Broken dreams like leaves abound,
Burn their stories to the ground
Traffic's clear half a dozen days,
But no one's counting anyway, oh

Golden State summer, silver moon highway
Blue skies forever, follow them my way

Daylight will come, then twilight to gray,
Mission Viejo to North of the Bay

Don't keep those dreams sheltered, live what you know,
And sunlight may follow wherever you go

Track Name: MAGNETIC
MAGNETIC

Love is magnetic,
Stand close and feel it pull you in
Give it or get it,
One dose heal you like medicine

Life, tryin' to fit a circle in a square,
Tryin' for connection, no one's there,
Does anybody care?

(Operators standing by
But hurry now, you're running out of time)

Time, frozen like the cold before the spring,
Spoken but it doesn't mean a thing,
Like voices in the wind, oh

Love is kinetic,
A trans-mutual energy
So pure and prophetic,
In sweet sunshine or sympathy, sympathy

We'll look up to the stars for any little sign,
A brand new beauty, strength and inner-wisdom so divine,
Let's put it all together and we'll see what we can find,
Love is magnetic

Love is like magic,
Here now, and gone before you know
Triumphant or tragic,
Hold tight and never let it go
