Track Name: Forever Yours
We sing together out of key
Although we try it seems we just can't find our harmony
We just don't fit each other's frequencies
That makes you out of reach
And I am finally accepting that, about you and me
It's plain to see, you only ever want to stay inside and watch TV
Because that's just as good a memory
I'm just good company, and I am finally accepting that

Remember the time when we stole the whole day?
And nobody knows it; we took it away
And it will be forever mine, and it will be forever yours
Now we own the night and it can't be undone
I'll never forget how it feels to be young
Cause it will be forever mine, and it will be forever yours

Come on darling
Have some indecency, you know there's nothing you can say that would embarrass me
I heard a song tell me that talk is cheap,
But that's all you do with me, and I am finally accepting that
It's just our routine, we try and dream
And buy the things we said we'd buy when we had more money
All in the name of making memories,
That's all you want with me
And I am finally accepting that

Remember the time when we stole the whole day?
And nobody knows it; we took it away
And it will be forever mine, and it will be forever yours
Now we own the night and it can't be undone
I'll never forget how it feels to be young
Cause it will be forever mine, and it will be forever yours
Track Name: Go the Distance
I have often dreamed of a far off place
Where a hero's welcome will be waiting there for me
And the crowds will cheer when they see my face
And a voice keeps saying this is where I'm meant to be

I will find my way, I can go the distance
I'll be there someday, if I can be strong
I know every mile will be worth my while
I will go most anywhere to feel like I belong

I will beat the odds, I can go the distance
I will face the world, fearless, bright and strong
I will beat the odds, I can go the distance
To find my hero's welcome right where I belong.
Track Name: The Coolest Girl
All my dreams I'm chasing after,
they don't need all this laughter
I take a grain of salt, stiff upper lip
It's not their fault I'm not as hip
Wake up kid, you know you're more than this

I'm the smartest person that I've ever met
So why do I allow myself to possibly forget
There's so much I know how to do,
So much more than all of you
The only thing I wish I knew
Is how to make them see, the girl that I can be

I am the coolest girl in the whole wide world
I know it, but I can't show it at all
I am sick and tired of low not higher
Places where I should belong
And it's about time I proved them wrong

Give me a shot, to show what I've got, I am so much more
Than this frizzy hair, these frumpy clothes I wear
Though I rock 'em like nobody you've seen before

Cause I am the coolest girl in the whole wide world
I know it, below it all
I am done with losing, on with choosing
The coolest girl on the face of the planet,
The coolest girl on the face of the planet
The coolest chick you've ever seen or heard

So you can try to bring me down,
But sorry guys, I'm stickin' around
I've thought about it and I've found
That I am the coolest girl, yeah
Track Name: Time Isn't Healing
Tick tock goes the clock, time is going so slow
And I'm supposed to be fast asleep like a couple hours ago
But I, I need to exercise the right I've got to rest these eyes
And I, I need to knock on some doors
so I won't have to lie here by myself anymore

But time isn't healing
I'm pretty sick of staring at my ceiling
And I, I can't help the way I feel about you

I have a smoke to try and send me to sleep
But things aren't all that they seem
The only time I get to spend with you seems to be in my dreams
But I, I need to let her go
Would it have worked, I guess I'll never know
And I, I need to hit the road to find me a girl of my own

But time isn't healing
I'm pretty sick of staring at my ceiling
And I, I can't help the way I feel about you

Time isn't healing me no more
Time isn't healing me anymore
No, time, it don't heal me no more.
Track Name: For Good
I've heard it said that people come into our lives
For a reason, bringing something we must learn
And we are lead to those who help us most to grow
If we let them, and we help them in return
Well, I don't know if I believe that's true
But I know I'm who I am today because I knew you

Like a comet pulled from orbit as it passes the sun
Like a stream that meets a boulder halfway through the wood
Who can say if I've been changed for the better, but
Because I knew you, I have been changed for good

It well may be that we will never meet again
In this lifetime, but let me say before we part
So much of me is made of what I learned from you
You'll be with me, like a handprint on my heart
So now whatever way our stories end,
I know you have re-written mine by being my friend

Like a ship blown from its mooring by a wind of the sea
Like a seed dropped by a skybird in a distant wood
Who can say if I've been changed for the better, but
Because I knew you, because I knew you
I have been changed for good

And just to clear the air, I ask forgiveness
For the things I've done you blame me for
But then I guess we know there's blame to share
And none of it seems to matter anymore

Like a comet pulled from orbit as it passes the sun
(Like a ship blown from its mooring by a wind of the sea)
Like a stream that meets a boulder halfway through the wood
(Like a seed dropped by a bird in the wood)

Who can say if I've been changed for the better
I do believe I have been changed for the better, and
Because I knew you, because I knew you,
Because I knew you, I have been changed for good
Track Name: The Hanging Tree
Are you, are you

Coming to the tree

Where they strung up a man they say murdered three?
Strange things did happen here

No stranger would it be

If we met up at midnight in the hanging tree.

Are you, are you

Coming to the tree
Where the dead man called out for his love to flee?
Strange things did happen here

No stranger would it be

If we met up at midnight in the hanging tree.

Are you, are you

Coming to the tree
Where I told you to run, so we'd both be free?
Strange things did happen here

No stranger would it be

If we met up at midnight in the hanging tree.

Are you, are you

Coming to the tree

Wear a necklace of rope, side by side with me...
Strange things did happen here

No stranger would it seem

If we met up at midnight in the hanging tree.
Track Name: What Makes You Beautiful
You're insecure, don't know what for
You're turning heads when you walk through the door
Don't need make-up to cover up
Being the way that you are is enough

Everyone else in the room can see it
Everyone else but you

Baby you light up my world like nobody else
The way that you flip your hair gets me overwhelmed
When you smile at the ground, it ain't hard to tell
You don't know, you don't know you're beautiful
If only you saw what I can see
You'd understand why I want you do desperately
Right now I'm looking at you and I can't believe
You don't know, you don't know you're beautiful
That's what makes you beautiful

So come on, you've got it wrong
To prove I'm right, I put it in a song
I don't know why you're being shy
And turn away when I look into your eyes

Everyone else in the room can see it
Everyone else but you

Baby you light up my world like nobody else
The way that you flip your hair gets me overwhelmed
When you smile at the ground, it ain't hard to tell
You don't know, you don't know you're beautiful
If only you saw what I can see
You'd understand why I want you do desperately
Right now I'm looking at you and I can't believe
You don't know, you don't know you're beautiful
That's what makes you beautiful

Na na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na

Baby you light up my world like nobody else
The way that you flip your hair gets me overwhelmed
But when you smile at the ground it ain't hard to tell
You don't know, you don't know you're beautiful

Everyone else in the room can see it
Everyone else but you

Baby you light up my world like nobody else
The way that you flip your hair gets me overwhelmed
When you smile at the ground, it ain't hard to tell
You don't know, you don't know you're beautiful
If only you saw what I can see
You'd understand why I want you do desperately
Right now I'm looking at you and I can't believe
You don't know, you don't know you're beautiful
You don't know you're beautiful
That's what makes you beautiful
Track Name: Somebody's Buddy
I wanna be somebody's buddy
Somebody who can be my buddy back
I wanna be somebody's buddy
Anybody but a dumb butler
Track Name: Pardon Me (w/ Kelly Kauffmann)
Pardon me for my lack of excitement, but I'm not entirely thrilled
S-S-Stutter when I talk, flail around as I walk, yeah the moment's been killed
And I'm not good at this, no, not at all, I'm not good at this

I'm a wreck and I know it, and I tend to show it every chance that I get
Butterflies in the sky, they just fly on by, yeah they're making me sick
They don't flutter about, I'd do without, all they do is kick

Mean it truly, sincere heart
Why do you do this to me
Tear me apart

It's my fault and I know it, and I tend to blow it no thanks to you
It's like you sit and you watch me, you poke and you taunt me, it's all that you do
And I'm not fighting that, no, not at all
Just wanna be something, a name you call
The lips you taste just to fall madly in love

Mean it truly, sincere heart
Why do you do this to me
Tear me apart

I've got my eyes set on you,
My heart is burning red
All of my words come out wrong
Run circles in my head
You had me and I melted
In the palm of your hand
You know it, yes, I felt it
You'll never understand

Mean it truly, sincere heart
Why do you do this to me
Tear me apart

Mean it truly, sincere heart
Why do you do this to me,
Tear me apart
Track Name: More Like Her
She's beautiful, in her simple little way
She don't have too much to say when she gets mad
She understands, she don't let go of anything
Even when the pain gets really bad
I guess I should have been more like that

You had it all, for a pretty little while
Somehow you made me smile when I was sad
You took a chance on a bruised and beaten heart
Then you realized you wanted what you had
I guess I should have been more like that

Should have held on to my pride
Should have never let you lie
Guess you got what you deserve
Guess I should have been more like her

Forgiven you, she's stronger than I am
You don't look much like a man from where I'm at
It's plain to see, desperation showed it's truth
You love her and she loves you with all she has
Guess I should have been more like that
Track Name: Braille
She was lying on the floor, counting stretch marks
She hadn't been a virgin and he hadn't been a god
So she named the baby Elvis
To make up for the royalty he lacked, and
From then on it was turpentine and patches
From then on it was cold Campbell's from the can
And they were just two jerks playing with matches
'Cause that's all they knew how to play

It was raining cats and dogs outside of her window, and
She knew they'd be destined to become sacred roadkill on the way
She was listening to the sound of heaven shaking
Thinking about puddles and puddles and mistakes
Cause it's been turpentine and patches
It's been cold, cold Campbell's from the can
And they were just two jerks playing with matches
'Cause that's all they knew how to play

Elvis never could carry a tune, and
She thought about this irony as she stared up at the moon
She was tracing her years with her fingers on her skin
Saying "Well, why don't I begin again with turpentine and patches
With cold, cold Cambell's from the can
After all I'm still a jerk playing with matches
It's just that he's not around to play along, yeah
I'm still here playing with candles
Blowing out wishes, blowing out dreams
Just sitting here trying to decipher, what
What's written in braille upon my skin
Track Name: It's Over Now
There it goes, another one is gone
Another try, another one is wrong
Where to go? What is there to say here?
No one knows, I've never really felt
Good about the hand that I've been dealt
What kind of game is this anyway, here?

I want to make a statement
About the pictures and their awful placement
I want everyone to see it too

I tried to be someone but I don't know how, I don't know how
I tried to be the one but it's over now, it's over now

I can see the loneliness in you
I know it well, and everybody's got it too
Funny how I know I'm not alone here
That's how it seems, but when I'm walking through the halls
Everyone has reinforced their walls
It's no one's fault that the vision ain't at all clear

I don't know what is worse than
Feeling like you're not a person
I want everyone to sing along

I tried to be someone but I don't know how, I don't know how
I tried to be the one but it's over now, over

All I ever wanted was to reach out, reach out
And have somebody take my hand
All I've ever gotten was locked out, locked out
Nobody would ever understand

I tried to be someone but I don't know how, I don't know how
I tried to be the one but it's over now, over
I tried to be someone but I don't know how, I don't know how
I tried to be the one but it's over now, over
Over now, over now
