Track Name: Soul Whisperer
Don't know how to write a song
But I'm gonna try for you
Let my fingers lead the way

Never learned to play guitar
But my heart has brought me far
And I'd like to share with you

For you are my soul
And I've lost all control
So I guess I'll just hum this tune

Never had a way with words
But I have to say it hurts
Not to have my way with you

For you are my soul
And I've lost all control
So I guess I'll just hum this tune

You are my soul
I just wanted you to know
That nothing compares to you
Though you are far
You're still close to my heart
No one stands in for you, we two

Dreams are whispered on a wave
Pick me up from far away
Carry me back home to you

For you are my soul
And I've lost all control
So I guess I'll just hum this tune

For you are my soul
And I've lost all control
So I guess I'll just hum this tune
Track Name: What Is the Journey
One life when you're young, one life when you're old
One life in between that's there to show you the road
Twelve months in a year, twelve years in a day
I can't remember being twelve or acting that way

Oh what is the journey?
Will I know while I'm learning?
Will it show what I'm yearning to explore?

One song in your head, one more for the road
One song in your heart to help you carry that load
One chance you will take, one life you will live
One hope in your heart will be the gift you can give

Oh what is the journey?
Will I know while I'm learning?
Will it show what I'm yearning to explore?

And I know when you call
I will give you my all
I don't chase stars that fall

Oh what is the journey?
Will I know while I'm learning?
Will it show what I'm yearning to explore?

Oh what is the journey?
Will I know while I'm learning?
Will it show what I'm yearning to explore?

Explore, explore, explore, explore
Explore, explore, explore, explore...
Track Name: When I Think About You
I scan the waters, I scan the waters and I think about you
I pour my coffee, I pour my coffee and I think about you
And I know, when I see you smile
In my heart, that it's worth my while
To move slow, and just take my time as I think about you

Grays can be rosy, grays can be rosy when I think about you
Words can be swallowed, words can be swallowed when I think about you
And everything's all right if we work it out tonight
And everything's just fine if we talk about it, we talk about it

And everything's all right if we work it out tonight
And everything's just fine if we talk about it, we talk about it

My mind is open wide, mind is open as I think about you
I feel my heart go, I feel my heart go BOOM! I think about you
When I think about you, when I think about you, oh, when I think about you
Track Name: Rock Me
Seems whatever I’m saying, words get carried away and come out wrong
And I’ve got you complaining that you’ve been entertaining me too long
Oooo would you rock me ’til I see the morning light?
Oooo would you hold my hand and lead me home tonight?

What I’m trying to tell you, hope that it won’t repel you far away
‘Cause every time I rebel you weave an intricate spell and I’m okay
Oooo would you rock me ’til I’m feeling it’s all right?
Oooo would you hold my hand and lead me home tonight?

You make up for the pieces that I lack
You show me that there is no turning back
To start and stop and never get past go, it’s maddening I know
But I’ll show you, so won’t you

Rock me ’til I’m feeling it’s all right
Hold my hand and lead me home tonight
Rock me ’til I see the morning light
Hold my hand and lead me home tonight

Oooo would you rock me ’til I’m feeling it’s all right?
Oooo would you hold my hand and lead me home tonight?
Oooo would you rock me ’til I see the morning light?
Oooo would you hold my hand and lead me home tonight?
Track Name: Sincere Love
"Stop, I beg you, come no further,” is my look behind your shoulder
I can't let you do this to yourself
Will I love you? Can I leave you? Might my lying eyes deceive you?
Said you were enchanted by a glance I gave you, let me save you
Couldn't stop this, from that first kiss

When I'm near you, I can feel it too
And I know that it's silly to feel so afraid
But I didn't expect this mistake to be made
And if I love you, this I need from you:
Take me straight at this measure, right to the line
For I promised myself a sincere love this time

Do you know me, understand me? I can see the way you've planned me
Put me high up on your pedestal
I don't want this! Do I need this? Something in the moments we kiss
Tears me and I feel myself fall down in circles, then my heart goes
Beating fast, oh, can this last? For...

When I'm near you, I can feel it too
And I know that it's silly to feel so afraid
But I didn't expect this mistake to be made
And if I love you, this I need from you:
Take me straight at this measure, right to the line
For I promised myself a sincere love this-

Take me straight at this measure, right to the line
For I promised myself a sincere love this-

When I'm near you, I can feel it too
And I know that it's silly to feel so afraid
But I didn't expect this mistake to be made
And if I love you, this I need from you:
Take me straight at this measure, right to the line
For I promised myself I'd be loved so much better this time
Track Name: Take My Word
Picture perfect, you're not worth it, 'least that's what you think
I could tell a million stories, all of them would seem to lack a link
Blink to you in the morning light
Your eyes see through me like transparent shades
And it's times like these when I'm afraid

Never trust my intuition, failure seems to be my mission
It’s as if I only listen to those pretty lies
But this time let’s strike a bargain
You give me your heart
And you can take my word tonight

When you're honest you don't listen, when you're true, you're blind
Rest upon a cozy web of lies tonight

Never trust your intuition, failure seems to be your mission
It’s as if you only listen to my pretty lies
But this time let’s strike a bargain
You give me your heart
And you can take my word tonight

So the moral to my story, think you’ll all agree
That the world of lies revealed the truth to me

Now I trust my intuition, failure no longer my mission
It’s as if I stopped to listen to those pretty lies
But this time let’s strike a bargain
You give me your heart
And you can take my word tonight

Would you let your guard down if I were the truth?
Would you hold me to your eyes?
Look me upside down and inside out
I want you to, oh, I want you to
Won't you take my word?
Take my word, take my word, take my word
Oh, take my word tonight
Track Name: I Will Wait for You
I will wait for you
Yes, I will wait for you
'Cause everything you do makes my heart know it's true

And I know you don't see
Through the line of girls to lonesome me
But every day I'll be there waiting patiently

And oh, as the moments pass me by
I know my time's well spent on you
And so, all the waiting seems worthwhile
'Cause waiting's what my heart knows pays to do

I will hold your hand
And I will chase monsters from this land
And every fear will run and hide when I'm by your side

And oh, as the moments pass me by
I know my time's well spent on you
And so, all the waiting seems worthwhile
'Cause waiting's what my heart knows pays to do

I will take my time
And I will outlast this whole long line
When you see me that fine day I know that you'll say

"I have dreamed of you
And I have been waiting for you too"
And everything will be okay 'cause
I was waiting for you
Waiting for me, waiting for you, too
Track Name: My Home
My once and forever
Home home home, home home home
Home home home, home home home

Went out for a ride today to see the world another way and
Wove the green-paved biking lane and took things in
Wasn't sure I felt the magic, wore the moon around my neck and
Got myself a birthday wand and sent you off

Bought a set of frogs to light the scene
New York City smog, the air is clean
This place takes me back, know what I mean? 'Cause it's my

My once and forever
Home home home, home home home
Home home home, home home home

Wrote a letter to an old friend, told him what was on my heart and
Caught up with a thesis-writing physicist
Watched the sun set on the Hudson, cruising down the Williamsburg Bridge
Ordered vegetarian duck, it's my best of both worlds

Hipsters, gangsters and Hasidic Jews
Rainstorm separates my leather shoes
Daylight is the only thing to lose here in my

My once and forever
Home home home, home home home
Home home home, home home home

And tonight I saw real stars shining through the clouds
Didn't need you there to point them out, no map needed here
No map needed here, here in my
Home home home, home home home
Home home home, home home home

Friday comes along, back to the sticks
Concerts, parties, yeah I got my fix
World's your oyster when you're twenty-six and in my

My once and forever
Home home home, home home home
Home home home, home home home
My home, my home, my home, my home, my home
Track Name: My Old Friend
Fear's like an old friend, he's at your back, he knows your head
Wants to believe that nothing's changed
Well, I'm like an old car, I've traveled far, I know these ways
My leather is worn, but that's okay
But I'm not sure what this passenger wants from me

Answer my questions: What is life? What is your name?
Where did you learn to play the game?
Tell me your secret, it's okay, I've got my share too
Sharing is something my old friend told me to never do
Show me the way, and I'll stay and follow you

Life feels like this when you're near
And you’ve washed away my fear
My old friend won’t be bothering again

Do you need a ride? Well, hop in
I’ll take you where you need to go, I'll give you wings
We're on our ways now, when you discover mine, be kind
This old engine isn't much, but it gives me wings to

Fly, and feel like this when you’re near
But my old friend is coming back again to steer

After the wreckage, this old car can’t pull its weight
But at least I can say I fell gracefully
Track Name: Shooting Star
Shooting star falling from out of the sky, see me colliding
Alighting, you cast your wish on me
Give me your word and I'll try it for size
Tell me the reason for all of your lies
Tell me you want to be free, oh, wish upon me

As I fell I saw the world in your eyes, you stand your ground
Firmly rooted, set a fire at your feet
What is the problem we're trying to solve?
Could it be it's around you I revolve?
Can't you see I want to be what you want from me?

If there's a way, then there I'll stay
I'll spend each day with you
And should you go, then even so
I'll light the way for you

So tell me the words and I'll write you a song
Hum me the tune and I'll say it’s all wrong, it’s all wrong
Tell me your wish and I'll make it come true
Mine is that I'm just the person for you
But can I still be me? Let's see
I'm falling apart at the seams
So soften my fall down to Earth from my dreams
Track Name: It's So Hard
It’s so hard to be in love with
You, you know it’s true, do what you do
Oh baby it’s so hard to be in love with you

So you wake me in the middle of the night to say
Wish you had a girl who wasn’t so uptight
You say that I’m all wrong
When your buzz has worn off with the morning light, you say
"Babe I’m sorry," then you hold and squeeze me tight
And say you were so wrong

But you don’t do what I need to be true and in love with you
You know it’s true, do what you do
Oh baby it’s so hard to be in love with you

Tell me you’ll make changes happen in your life, you say
That you love me and you want me for your wife
And say, "Baby, I’ll change"
Ask you if it’s true we’re still on for tonight, you say
You’ve got plans and that your schedule’s kinda tight
I say, "No, you won’t change"

For me, I can see a life of misery, being in love with you
You know it’s true, do what you do
Oh baby it’s so hard to be in love with you

No you won’t change for me
I can see that I’ve got to be free from this love with you
You know it’s true, do what you do
Oh baby it’s so hard to be in love with you
You know it’s true, do what you do
Oh baby it’s so hard to be in love like me
Baby, can’t you see my agony over you?
Track Name: Fill Me with Your Love
Sometimes, when I feel down, turn myself around
Try to see myself back there and that’s when
I finally take the time, get myself in line
Do the things that only I can

Fill me with my love, fill me with my love
Fill me with my love, my love

Hey you! What you got against me?
Ain’t it plain to see that we’re both the same and maybe
You gotta take the time, get yourself in line
Learn to love yourself so you can

Fill me with your love, fill me with your love
Fill me with your love, your love
Fill me with your love, fill me with your love
Fill me with your love, your love

And if you want to hide from me, take your time, our day will come
You can’t avoid the truth you breathe, it’s in your eyes, just like the sun, so come on

Fill me with your love, fill me with your love
Fill me with your love, your love
Fill me with your love, fill me with your love
Fill me with your love, your love

Fill it up, fill it up, fill the world with your love
Fill it up, fill it up, fill the world with your love
Fill it up, fill it up, fill the world with your love
Fill it up, fill it up, fill the world with your love

It’s all you need
Hey world! Time to take a stand, take somebody’s hand
And let them pull you up into their light
