Track Name: All Right Here
All Right Here

It's that time again to ask each other why we're here at all.
Holding close with the lights down low.
It's that time again as we look into each other's eyes
and think out loud, "Where else can we go?

Because it's all right here - waiting for the words to flow.
And it's all right here - wondering where the time will go.
And it's all right here - nothing /more that we can do. (we can say or do)
And it's all right here - with you.

We could run as far and fast as light can travel to.
But in the end I'd rather spend my whole life with you.
When all is done and all we have is memory and time.
And in my mind it's all quite clear.
Track Name: Anyway

Anyway, it comes to this, when you start to consider all the things you missed.
Wasn't hard to be thrown off-course. I guess it couldn't get much worse.
You took a line a reason down to the cross in the road.
Thought that you were the boss. At least that's what you were told.

You didn't know if you were bought or were sold.
I want to know you. I want to show you how.

Anyway, it's not enough. 'Cuz you were made of better stuff.
Not just a bag of flesh and bones. Not the simple things that you own.
Track Name: Dog & Pony Show
Dog and Pony Show

Looks like this is the end of the road.
Only a fool would open up that door coming into view.
But it's just me trying to impress you.
That notwithstanding,
what you're demanding I'm not here to give. So put way that shiv;

Let's go watch the dog and pony show.
I am the dog and pony show.
You are the dog and pony show today.

With wayward hands and muted thoughts;
hardly time to see just what we bought, then off we go
into the bowels of the night. In flight like some crazy water fowl.
Listen to me growl. It's all that I know.

We'll knock on wood; we'll pray to fire;
we'll try to be good to prove that God's a liar.
Then when it's all gets a little too quiet we'll laugh all the way home.

Looks like this is the end of the road.
Track Name: Own Your Own Soul
Own Your Own Soul

If you're gonna run when the going gets difficult.
You'll never have much fun when you're been passing off your own faults.
I can say for sure, that you'll never find the cure.

Until you stop rolling, rolling with the punches.
Until you stop pulling, pulling all those punches.
You've gotta Own Your Own Soul.
You've gotta own what you know or you will never get whole
until you own your own soul.

Can't rely on all your friends. They might not be there when you bend.
Can't rely on what you think. 'Cuz you might drive yourself to drink.
I can say for sure, that you'll never find the cure.
Track Name: Wondering

Warning. I may flee. Wondering why I have to be alone without you.
Here am I. Near you. Won't be long before I see your smile always.

Oh dear, wondering where we're gonna go from here (3x).

When? I hope not so long from now. Oh, it'll be so sweet and gentle.
Why my dreams have to be somewhere far off in the distant light; waiting.

My heart beats only so long but when I'm in this moment and my song;
it's alright.
Bound by time, wait all night. Always was and always is forever.
