Track Name: Pillow on the Ground
Tick Tock, road block.
Deep breath, too much worry spent.
Black or white, too many shades of gray.
Sun sets on another day.

And I know it ain’t the life you chose.
It’s all you’ve ever known so hold your head up high,
have faith in love. In time, it’ll all come back around.
Find your pillow on the ground ‘cause baby we all fall down
and the world spins round.

Fate rests on a cheap dress.
Dark days turn to darker ways.
Night falls, hope calls.
You don’t pick up
‘cause you think you’ve had enough.

And I know it ain’t the life you chose.
It’s all you’ve ever known so hold your head up high,
have faith in love. In time, it’ll all come back around.
Find your pillow on the ground ‘cause baby we all fall down
and the world spins round.

Round and round…round and round…

And we all fall down.
Track Name: Memphis
If you come back and I’m not here then I’m gone.
Must be moving on, must be moving on.
If you stay and choose to turn away,
You’ll never know that everything has changed.

If you leave before me don’t look back
‘cause leaving is all I ever planned.

But the summertime in Memphis makes me miss you.
And California sunshine reminds me that time flies.
Autumn leaves in NY leave me wanting more
of that winter in Denver when you finally mentioned forever.

This big old world it won’t stop
not for a broken heart, not for a broken heart.
I know it gets better every day.
These days they wash away just like summer rain.

If you leave before me don’t look back
‘cause leaving is all you really have.

But the summertime in Memphis makes me miss you.
And California sunshine reminds me that time flies.
Autumn leaves in NY leave me wanting more
of that winter in Denver when you finally mentioned forever.

The road is long ‘cause it always bring you back
to another tomorrow and a solid dose of the past
that’s why…

summertime in Memphis makes me miss you.
And California sunshine reminds me that time flies.
Autumn leaves in NY leave me wanting more
of that winter in Denver when you finally mentioned forever.
Track Name: Be
Open eyes wide to the sunshine,
lift your head up, time to get up.
Another day break just for hope’s sake.
Changes making, chances taking
time to be.

So behold me and all of this beauty.
Behold me and all of this beauty.
Behold me I am free, free to be.

Hold on loosely, let it flow.
Light as a feather, heart that knows.
Take a deep breath then a small step.
Now you’re dreaming, finally seeing
time to be.

So behold me and all of this beauty.
Behold me and all of this beauty.
Behold me I am free, free to be.
Track Name: Say Goodbye
I could stay here in this car forever
wondering about where I’ve been.
I could stay here in this car forever
not caring where I end up in the end.

I could stay here in this car forever
Your hand barely touching mine.
No warm embrace just the thrill of the chase.
We don’t what it means but that don’t mean a thing

Except that I can’t so I won’t even try - I can’t say goodbye.

I could stay here in this car forever
wondering why you never called.
I could stay here in this car forever
pretending that I’m above it all.

I could stay here in this car forever
listening to the news of the world I’m driving thru.
If nothing stays the same, why is it so hard to change.

No, I can’t so I won’t even try - I can’t say goodbye..,

And it’s such a fine day for a little bit of change,
but you said hit the breaks, hit the breaks, hit the breaks.

No, I can’t so I won’t even try - I can’t say goodbye.

Goodbye
Say Goodbye
Goodbye
Track Name: Be Still My Heart
Once in a lifetime you’ll find a perfect moment in time,
but perfection unwinds and it leaves you blind…

So paint me as I am, I’ll draw us as we were
You’ll write a song so true the words means nothing to you…

Please be still my heart,
even though my mind wants to run around
with every thought in town…
(please be still my heart)

Once in a lifetime you’ll find a perfect moment in time,
and perfection is fine if it don’t unwind…
If it don’t unwind…
(please be still my heart)
Track Name: I'll Love You Forever & Other Lies
Sun sets on a quiet beach.
Waves crash on the shore beneath our feet.
Time stands still, the past slips away.
You turn to me and solemnly say:

I’ll love you forever and I’ll tell you other lies.
Forever is like the weather, no the sun can’t always shine.
But I’ll love you forever and I’ll mean it when I say it
‘cause I’m desperate. Not for you but for forever.

Sun sets on a quiet home.
You know it’s time to leave and I’m ready to be alone.
You stand in the doorway nothing left to say,
But I’ve got a few words I’ve saved just for today:

I’ll love you forever and I’ll tell you other lies.
Forever is like the weather, no the sun can’t always shine.
But I’ll love you forever and I’ll mean it when I say it
‘cause I’m desperate. Not for you but for forever.
