Track Name: I Feel Blue
well i, i want you baby
but you don't know how bad i do
you, you say you love me baby
well, come on and show me that it's true

you claim that you longed to hold me tight
and that you'd dream about me every single night

well i, i dream about you
all the long and lonely night
i, i pray they come true
everything will be alright
oh how i cry whenever i catch your eye
i feel blue

hey little girl, where you going?
don't run away from a heart that's true
hey little girl, why you leaving?
do you want me to chase you?

*

well i, i dream about you
all the long and lonely night
i, i pray they come true
everything will be alright
oh how i cry whenever you pass me by
i feel blue
Track Name: Wonderful
we play in the sunlight
and lay in the moonlight
i look at her, she's beautiful
and everything is wonderful
Track Name: Summer House
went to the summer house
the very next day
went to the summer house
it had washed away

you say that you love me
but i know that that's not true
oh the things that you do

went to the summer house
the very next day
went to the summer house
it had washed away

they say it gets better
but i'm just passing through
oh the things that you do
Track Name: Magic Rose
my words, they are but feathers
my eyes are bits of broken glass
my fingers, sprigs of straw
and feelings, naught but blades of grass

when we first met, your beauty was arresting
your hair, it fell so gently 'round your neck
and in my mind's eye i saw the both of us dancing
my heart was racing i could hardly catch my breath

so no, no, please don't go

flowerful fantasy flutters
'bove the fleeting time
'cross butterfly rainbows
pale sadness madly sleeps behind

the night we met, the clouds sang as the sun was setting
a magic rose adorned your modest breast
wrapped in the velvet of sweet dreams, your image was glowing
a moment of my life which i will never forget

so no, no, please don't go
Track Name: Leave That Girl Alone
hey man, leave that girl alone
she don't need your help to get back home

you started off by buying her a drink
soon you've hit her with everything but the kitchen sink
and now you take her aside and say you're in love
tell her that it's writ in the stars above
but what you see ain't always what you get
and, if i'm not mistaken, you've got nothing yet

*

next i catch you standing with your arm around her
it must've crept up quietly amidst the blur
and now you're trying hard, saying your love's true
but last time i checked, that sorta thing takes two, not just you
don't you know you're staring at the sun
and, buddy i got news for you-she's just having fun

*

i see you, man, hanging around
playing it cool all over town
you ask her please, she said no
give it up, just let it go

hey man, leave that girl alone
she don't need your help to get back home
she's doing just fine walking on her own
watch her as she's going, goin', gone
Track Name: Wrecking Ball
well, she's five feet tall
a few odd inches on top
and she can tell that you're lying
even when you're not

you beg and you plead her
but she throws all your flowers out the door
she's a wrecking ball

you try to calm her down
but she's made up her mind
you figure she couldn't have one
'less she spoils a good time

just when you think you've fixed the problem
she finds another scratching 'neath the floor
she's a wrecking ball

look out!

now, little boy, she's the queen
and you're her jester-fool
and it's the same sad tragedy
play, laugh, and cry by her rules

so, when you're standing in the sunlight
just remember that when it rains it pours
she's a wrecking ball
Track Name: Much At All
oh darling, i don't mind you leaving me
i'm lonely, but every lonely soul ought-a be
no, i don't miss you much at all
sitting staring at the walls
oh yeah, i'm so happy

and when the sun is shining
well it doesn't seem so bad
and when the wind is howling
ask around, i don't get sad
well, today it looks like rain
tomorrow looks the same
but oh, i can't get mad

and, sweetheart, if you should
ever want to come back
i'll understand, yes, i've decided
i'll cut you some slack
oh yes, i'll love you 'til the end
as long as you don't leave again
baby, fact is fact

oh baby, my days and your days and our days keep passing on
oh baby, sundays on down to mondays
pretty soon they'll all be gone

oh baby, my days and your days and our days keep passing on
oh baby, mondays on through 'til sundays
pretty soon they'll all be gone
Track Name: Wild Child
well, when i'm happy i tell myself that she loves me
but maybe she hates me, maybe who knows
and i can feel the blood in my hands as i twirl 'cross the room
with my feet here planted right on the floor

and in all their bitter cacophony
don't they seem to make sweet melody?

wild animals in the night
through the jungle hear them call
wild animals in the night
fearless creatures big and small

well, when i'm angry i tell myself that i hate her
but maybe i love her, maybe who knows
and why should i spend my life drinking the ocean
just to greet all my dawns with naught but prickly pores?

and in all their bitter cacophony
don't they seem to make sweet melody?

wild animals in the night
through the darkness hear them call
wild animals in the night
fearsome creatures one and all

wild animals in the night
through the jungle hear them call
wild animals in the night
ferocious creatures big and small

wild animals in the night
make such sweet melody
wild animals in the night
sing a song for you and me

wild animals in the night
through the darkness hear them call
wild animals in the night
silly creatures one and all
Track Name: Win Your Heart
o, win your heart
i wanna win your heart
i'm gonna try my best to make you believe
o, win your heart
ain't got no time to play it smart
i'm gonna wear my intentions 'pon my sleeve

you know it ain't a game
for boys afraid to hurt their pride
you know it ain't the kinda thing
for those ashamed of what's inside

o, win your heart
i wanna win your heart
i'm gonna try my best to make you believe
o, win your heart
i've been shot by cupid's dart
i'm gonna wear my love upon my sleeve

well, i guess i'm sorry
but i don't got much to say
i guess there ain't no good reason
why i carry on this way

o, win your heart
i wanna win your heart
i'm gonna try my best to make you believe
o, win your heart
i'll put the cart before the horse
i'm gonna wear this sickness 'pon my sleeve
Track Name: Country Eyes
country eyes, country eyes
the water's run dry
no clouds in the sky

country eyes, country eyes
the cactus has died
the coyotes cry

our hands, they part
oases grown dark
Track Name: Spaceship Window
looking through my spaceship window
i watch the world grow smaller below
earthly matter left behind
sit back, relax, and clear my mind

thoughts willy-nilly among the stars
float 'round the room as we pass mars
soon i'll be leaving the solar system
i've had some good times, but i won't miss them

i kinda hope i meet an alien
we'll fall in love and we'll hold "hands"
and skip across the milky way
ne'er minding what people'd say

i shan't be sad, but beyond happy
i've not gone mad, i've not gone daffy
all's suspended, i'm drifting free
lepton, bosons, my quarks and me
Track Name: O.K. Either Way
hey, mr. sunshine
why you watching the weather channel all the time?
hey, mr. blueskies
rise and shine and rub the sleep from your eyes
how time flies

it's my favorite song, help me sing along
whether or not the words or timing's wrong
it doesn't matter how it sounds
or if somebody is around
it's o.k. either way

hey, mr. starbright
i heard you fumbling around looking for your flashlight
hey, mr. moonbeam
it doesn't matter if it's just a dream tonight
it's alright

it's my favorite song, help me sing along
whether or not the words or timing's wrong
it doesn't matter how it sounds
or if somebody is around
it's o.k. either way
any day go out and play

mr. moonbeam, mr. star bright
it's o.k., it's alright
mr. blueskies, mr. sunshine
it's o.k., i feel fine
Track Name: Boyfriends
i hate boyfriends, hanging around
i hate boyfriends, bringing me down
every time i wanna say something nice
i always gotta think about it twice
i hate boyfriends-it's nothing personal, but it's true

he's good guy, yeah i bet he's great
but i want her and i don't want to wait
i wish it were mine when she's holding his hand
if i seem upset, please try to understand
i hate boyfriends-it's nothing personal, but it's true

oh please, oh give me a chance
may i, may i have this dance?
i'm not trying to steal you away
but listen to your heart and not what people say
there's something between us we shouldn't deny
let's watch it grow instead of let it die
i hate boyfriends, but i certainly don't hate you

i hate boyfriends, hanging around
i hate boyfriends, bringing me down
i see her face and i watch her lips
my heart, it breaks fighting back each kiss
i hate boyfriends-it's nothing personal, but it's true
oh what, oh what can i do?
Track Name: Little Fishies
sing me a song about the pacific ocean
where you can watch the sun set in the sea
sing me a song about the pacific ocean
maybe then you won't feel so far away from me

call me on the phone and then set it down
i won't say a word, i won't make a sound
i'll savor every note of the melody
come on, baby, call and sing a song to me

sing me a song about the pacific ocean
where you can watch the sun set in the sea
come on, baby, sing a song about the ocean
maybe then you won't feel so far away from me
Track Name: Party Girls
i'm tired, so tired-tired of all these party girls

she didn't pick up when i
called like i knew she would
yet i can't seem to put it down
somehow, like i know i should

*

she cut me out of the loop and never tells me anything
and you can bet all she wants to do tonight is everything
pretty things, oh they can be maddening
but those carefree, spontaneous days can 'come so predictable
and of the empty promises, well i have had my fill

*

though in my despair
i tell myself she still loves me
but she's nowhere, i swear
it's driving me crazy, baby

*
well, they're the prettiest girls in the world

late at night i feel alright
shut off the lights, when i get home
late at night i feel alright
just me, myself and all the girls i've known
Track Name: Get Me Down
once upon a time but not no more
i find myself forgetting just how it was before
i hope if and when i'm around again that people understand
i would but i shouldn' t-i can't

she said i could meet her at the bar
it's as easy as hopping in and starting up a car
but oh, dear me, what if she asked to hold my hand?
i would but i shouldn' t-i can't

yet that don't stop my restless mind from wandering
- don't want to stay, gotta get away
i'm here right now but i just can't help wondering
- wanna leave today, gonna find a way
man, these crazy daydreams kinda get me down
back again in my hometown

maybe if i wished upon a star
by some miracle of fate i'd appear right where you are
but i've left bits of this broken heart scattered across the land
i would but i shouldn' t-i can't

uh oh, my future's looking rather either/or
what i do and with who is uncertain, that's for sure
i haven't quite finished formulating my master plan
i would but i shouldn' t-i can't

*

i recall a time when i had friends
oh, so sad-but that was long ago
and i guess things have changed
that's too bad-and she's still
counting down the days
three, two, one-but won't things be
much different then?

and what won't start my restless mind a-wandering?
-maybe you should stay, you always run away
to be satisfied and stop with all this wondering?
-you said that yesterday, you gotta find your way
it must be that old evil spirit so deep down in the ground
back again in my hometown
Track Name: Little Old Me
you're throwing away all my love
you're snuffing out a flame that's true
you're shutting the door on little old me
drawing a line between i and you

you're waking up all my dreams
and you are crying my eyes
you're trading all my fond hellos
for one resounding goodbye

and though i lie awake at night
and smell the past 'pon the wind
i do my best not to be afraid
of what the quiet brings

and as the fears, they rise and fall
whilst the sorrow, it stays
i swear that i can still feel your warmth
and your smiles still guide my days

but you're throwing away all my love
you're snuffing out a flame, 'twas true
you're shutting the door on little old me
drawing a line between i and you
Track Name: Pretty Words
there are wishes strewn 'bout the teal of the fountain
in the water that came down from 'top of the mountain
and the lion and horse in the sky are the same
as the gladness that rolls down her cheek in the rain

and it's a sad love that never ends
it's a tale the birds tell 'bout the wind

and the sunlight stands in relief on the floor
'round the shadow cast by your ghost in the door
and these lines that have grown on my face-what's to blame
for the sounds that rattle around in my brain?

*

and he goes and lights incense and tends to the grave
of the child who never learned how to behave

i don't believe a word you say
no, i can't believe those pretty words you say
Track Name: Tomatoes
don't you want to love her
don't you want to be her friend?
don't you want it to turn out right
instead of wrong in the end?
don't you want to love her
don't you want to love her for me
the poor boy who treated her so miserably?

i said now, don't you want to love her
don't you want to hold her tight?
you can't go treating everybody like
they're just some old ship in the night
i said, don't you want to love her
don't you want to hold her now?
but buddy, what you want's just a third of what is anyhow

isn't she so pretty
isn't she a little doll?
don't you want to take her, frame her
hang her 'pon your wall?
you say that you got nothing
you say that you got nothing to lose
but did you ever stop to think why maybe she was singing the blues?

i said now, don't you want to love her
don't you want to love her for me?
you can't go treating everybody like
just another fish in the sea
i said, don't you want to love her
don't you want to squeeze her now?
but brother, what you want's just a third of what is anyhow

and don't you want to see her
don't you want to hold her hand?
but listening doesn't mean
that you understand
everybody's reeling, dreaming
scheming 'bout romance
but if you ain't feeling the music, you ain't gotta dance

i said now, don't you want to love her
don't you want to be her friend?
don't you want it to turn out right
instead of wrong in the end?
i said don't you want to love her
if you really do you'll find
that a person's just a person just a person, blood, soul, body, and mind
