Rescue Me 04:28
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

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

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

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

Rain 05:25
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

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

Over You 04:45
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

Tom's Boogie 03:08

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

Sing It Out 07:13
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
