Track Name: Rescue Me
I strayed from the mainland
and now I'm lost at sea
I thought if I sailed into uncharted waters
the uncertainty would set me free

but one time friendly faces
now seem to all deny me
I lost my tether to the shore
I don't know if I can do this anymore

rescue me
won't you rescue me

I thought I was all alone
but there's another boat floating past
seems there's two ships of fools out here on their own
and neither one is bound to last

there's a storm front moving in
the waves are climbing so high
the sky is black and there's nowhere to run
but I'm not the only one who's out here looking for someone to

rescue me
won't you rescue me
Track Name: If Women Ruled The World
If women ruled the world
There would be so much more compassion
And less violence on TV
If women ruled the world
Clothes would be disposable
And massages would be free

If women ruled the world
If women ruled the world

If children ruled the world
There would be no more prejudices
And only cartoons on TV
If children ruled the world
Your name would be your occupation
And all toys would be free

If children ruled the world
If children ruled the world

My fellow countrymen of thee I sing
Why do we declare war on everything
Decisions that affect a million lives
Made on the back nine in between drives
Maybe we could fix a thing or two
If we acted more like women and children do
I'll do what I can but what do I know
I'm just a man
Track Name: When I'm With You
I'm tired of spending too much time stuck in a traffic jam
I'm tired of being unhappy with who I am
I'm tired of all the people who think it's alright to just take
and I'm tired from staying up too late

Chorus
but when I'm with you
nothing else seems to matter anymore
when I'm with you
I'm more awake and alive than I was before
until I'm not with you again

I'm tired of all the sequels never as good as the first
I'm tired of my attitude going from bad to worse
I'm tired of people who speak for me who've never been in my shoes
I'm tired of all the things that keep me away from you

Chorus
'cause when I'm with you
nothing else seems to matter anymore
when I'm with you
I'm more awake and alive than I was before
until I'm not with you again

Bridge
I know it
do you know it
I want to tell you all about it
I feel it
do you feel it
I want to tell you all about it
tell you all about it
tell you all about it
tell you all about how

Chorus
when I'm with you
nothing else seems to matter anymore
when I'm with you
I'm more awake and alive than I was before
until I'm not with you
until I'm not with you
until I'm not with you again
Track Name: I Could Always Make Her Laugh
lyrics by Ed Schieblin

Some men could make her fly through skies filled with storms
Some men could make her cry, get her so high
When they let go she wished she'd never been born
They could twist her and turn her
Love her and burn her
And I couldn't do much to help
But I could always make her laugh
But I could always make her laugh

I could never quite see what she saw in that scene
Couldn't get her to trust me that there was more to life
Than rich champagne and cheap misery
She wanted heaven and hell
To scream and to yell
And i couldn't do much to help
But I always could make her laugh
But I always could make her laugh

Bridge
We would sit in the park
A court jester and Joan of Arc
Talk about how we'd live and die
We'd take a sip, an awkward kiss
Then we'd laugh until we cried
Then we'd laugh until we cried

It's been a long, long while, a million miles since those days
They say she's lost at sea on Avenue B
With a man who can sing but has nothing to say
He can fool and cheat her
Drown her and beat her
And I can't do anything to help
But I wish I could still make her laugh
But I wish I could still make her laugh
Track Name: Rain
she walks to school through broken glass
she is the only girl in class
she and her brother would often hide
after their mother and father died

Chorus
fear falls like rain from the sky
and tears fall like rain from her eyes
she was to marry him that fall
he was kind yet restless, dark and tall
he had no choice, he had to fight
they kissed for the last time that night

Chorus
fear falls like rain from the sky
and tears fall like rain from her eyes

Bridge
at night she dreams of the day
when the clouds finally give way
and the sun shines warmly on her face
and with love the hurt is replaced

Chorus
and fear doesn't fall from the sky
and tears no longer fall from her eyes
Track Name: You Are My Storm
You are my storm in the midnight sky
My flash of light when lightning strikes
You are my world, and I am your moon
Circling around you baby, and it's nighttime soon

I feel my body crashing inside like waves from a restless sea

You are my storm, and your clouds move in
I'm drenched by your rain, shocked by your lightning
Swept up in your winds that ravage and blow
I'm powerless when I'm inside you, so I let go

Everything goes calm for a moment
I'm staring right into the eye of my storm
And you are my storm

You are my storm, and the storm has passed
Though I'm damaged for life, I bask in the aftermath
I want to believe that I played a part
But I know the role was only a victim's heart

I will never be the same
But I would do it all over again
Track Name: Over You
Give me your keys you said with a smile
You took my car and drove us away
I was your willing partner in crime
until yesterday

Futons to couches, full size to king
We spent the first two years in bed
I spent the last six months trying to keep you
and lost you instead
now I'm trying to get

CHORUS
Over you
I looked so long to find you
I lost my heart and mind too
A lifetime will pass by before I can say I am over you

You left the car keys on the table
You left no dishes in the sink
I came home from work to empty hangers
and my heart sank

CHORUS

instrumental bridge

I stared for hours at the ceiling
Watching the shadows cross the wall
I took a shower and I'm feeling
better now
no I'm not
It's gonna take a lot to get
Track Name: No Time Like Now
the summer of '99 was my answer to her question
what was the best time I have known
lunch in austin dinner in boston
ocean front views i couldn't lose
life came to me so easily back then

but the glory was fleeting priority seating only lasts so long
she saw where i was going all the while knowing exactly where i went wrong

CHORUS
she said there's no time like now
no time like right now
no time like now
no time like right now

times are tough
there's always more month at the end of the money
leave home at seven not back 'til eleven's just too damn hard
someday people will see what was meant for me and what i should be
and when that day comes i'll be so high again

but glory is fleeting priority seating only lasts so long
i knew where i was going all the while knowing exactly where i went wrong

CHORUS

BRIDGE
i always seem to be living in the past
or wishing my life away
but the only thing i can ever hope to have
is right now

CHORUS repeating
Track Name: Sing It Out
A rusty harp and a cheap guitar
He plays the corner of Fourth Street and Main
Sings like his soul just might tear loose
With nothing to lose, and everything to gain
Every night I hurry past him
Look at my watch like I'm late for somewhere
His voice rises up above the dirty street
Challenging anyone there to stop, to listen, to care

CHORUS
Sing it out, sing it loud
Sing it high, sing it proud
Sing what it is you have to say
but don't wait 'til tomorrow
sing today

A small child tries to rise to her feet
She starts to cry when she falls back to the floor
Her outstretched hand reaches for the sky
It doesn't occur to her to quit, so she tries it once more

CHORUS

BRIDGE
I spent so many years a prisoner
Of the man that I could not be
Tell me how can a person be so blind
What must I do to set myself free?
It's high time I try to take a stand
Gotta rise up and make my voice heard
Instead of letting my life pass me by
Time to shout, to belt it out, to say the word

CHORUS
