Track Name: Red-handed
Woke up this morning
I had a plan but didn't know where it would take me
Put on my shoes and
Walked out the door to see what I could find

I have to admit this
I don't know exactly what I'm doing here
I have to admit this
Everything around me is changing

You called my bluff
I need you as much as the sky needs the rain

Hey, love, I know it's been a long, long time since we first met
But I have to tell you something
I'm not well and I haven't been well for a long, long time
And I don't think I'll get any better
Unless, say, you were to love me
You were to love me
Track Name: Ophelia
"Why don't you come in?" I said to her
"I have to tell you there's something wrong with me
and I don't know what it is
I know you're worried
I know you're scared
I know you're troubled but there's only one thing you need to hear

Everything will be alright in time, in time
Everything will be alright in time, in time

They didn't tell me it would be this bad
But now I know it is
Maybe I'll make it
Maybe I won't
Maybe I'm already there and you just need to let me go

Everything will be alright in time, in time
Everything will be alright in time, in time

If I close my eyes tonight Ophelia
Will you say a prayer for me?
Make it short, make it longer
Make it whatever you want it to be
Make it good, make it bad
As long as you remember me

Everything will be alright in time, in time
Everything will be alright in time, in time"
Track Name: Wasting Time
Hey babe, I know what you like
Would you like to waste some time with me?
Holding hands in the shadows
Of the trees that we sit underneath
Wintertime: the colors
Fallin' from their leaves into your hair
Make it red, make it white
You could light up the sky when you stand there and

Every day I spend with you
It grows me younger every single time
And, oh, I wish that I could
Waste my days with you and make you mine

You're beautiful
And I'm sure it'll always be that way
You're beautiful
Stay with me for the rest of my days
We could midnight it up in the park
Under the stars with you wrapped in my arms
Or we could do nothing
Because nothing's better than something no good and

Every day I spend with you
It grows me younger every single time
And, oh, I wish that I could
Waste my days with you and make you mine

How long must I wait for you?
How much time must I waste for you?
How good could I be for you?
How will you know that I'm the best thing, best thing for you?

And every day I spend with you
It grows me younger every single time
And, oh, I wish that I could
Waste my days with you and make you mine
Track Name: White Ribbon
Outside, your hands, torn red, but they've washed their hands of it
No more, but you go on, your heart is still beating loud and clear
And we've hung our heads for you
And now there's a white ribbon hung where your head used to be
Hung where your head used to be

I turned the door to find you where I thought you'd never be
Opened my eyes to much more
Your laugh is gone where no one can find you
And now there's a white ribbon hung where your head should be
White ribbon hung where your head should be

Outside, our hands, open wide to touch us all around
No more yearning for judgement when we could all have peace
And we've hung our heads for you
And now there's a white ribbon hung where your head could be
For you
White ribbon hung where your head could be
Track Name: Little Thing
You've got quite the imagination
Running through your head
Thinking you could light up the world
With the little thing you are

You've got a little piece of something
Stuck in your head
Thinking your could pull the ship out of the water
Look, now you're dead

Now, I've got my limitations
But you don't care for that
Stretch your arms as wide as the world around
And come back again

You walk tall as the mountains
You breathe far as the sea
But your eyes still running in circles
Dancing where your imaginations be

You find me out of nowhere
Running through my head
Pass me by when I'm reeling about myself
And it shakes me over

Hey, won't you stop at the green light
And take me around where
The sun hits above my head and I
Feel it shining down
You're the sun in my world and
It shakes me off my feet when you
Come around and
I find what I've been missing all along

What makes you think of going
Outside of your head?
Find all of the cracks in the sidewalk
And fill them in

How do you keep from staying
Inside the lines you're in
Cut me down with your imagination
And it shakes me over

Hey, won't you stop at the green light
And take me around where
The sun hits above my head and I
Feel it shining down
You're the sun in my world and
It shakes me off my feet when you
Come around and
I find what I've been missing all along
Track Name: Your Wings
You got me wrapped in your wings
Fairy tales and fluffy white things
Fly away with me to the moon
We don't have to come back soon

It's so hard to get along
Always knowing your gone
So tie me up in your balloon
We don't have to come back soon

All day I wait for you
My love won't break for you
I'll give my name to you
If you'll say

You'll carry me along the road
And help me find my way home
And pick me up when I am blue
Then you'll be mine forever, too

Sometimes it's hard to hold
My love for you in my soul
But always with you I know
You'll say

You'll wrap me up in your wings
Fairy tales and fluffy white things
And fly away with me to the moon
We don't have to come back soon
Track Name: Mr. Jones
They say Mr. Jones isn't doing so well
Well, I haven't seen him so long, I couldn't tell
He used to be my best friend, my old pal
I wonder what's happened since then, what's happened to him now

So, hey Mr. Jones
It's been a long, long time and I haven't seen you
Why don't you come around and talk, talk to me?

I remember some days back a here or two
We'd sit around and talk about what we knew
Those days, they were many, but know he has few
I must have missed something important, I wish I had been there, been there to see it

So, hey Mr. Jones
It's been a long, long time and I haven't seen you
Why don't you come around and talk, talk to me?

I have fond memories of sitting on park benched, talking about summer
I have hundreds of photographs hanging on my walls
I have shoeboxes filled with ticket stubs and postcards
I had a friend

So tell me where I can go to see him
So I can say sorry for taking so long
I found his picture in yesterday's paper
I hope it's not too late to tell you how I feel

So, hey Mr. Jones
It's been a long, long time and I should have come to see you
I want you to know that lately you've been talking to me

Hey, Mr. Jones
I hope it's not to late to tell you I've missed you
I want you to know you were always a good friend to me
Track Name: Summertime Girl
I was out for a walk
No time, no talk
I was just trying to get myself away
I was taking a little ride
I was just trying to get myself outside
On an ordinary day

You were a t-shirt on
Leg for every hour that the day is long
My, oh, my, I would take you on if you let me have my way
You were a bombshell blast
Swingin' those hips and shakin' that ass
You're letting me know it's a damn good thing I got out of bed today

Maybe we could dance if you wanted to
Maybe take you home if you let me do
Girl, 'cause I'm feeling on only you today
We could get down if you wanted to
I could shake your bones if you let me through
Maybe you could show me you're something new if you come around my way

I know, you know, that everything's gonna be all right now
I know, you know, that everything's gonna be all right now

I was playing in the sand
Picking out crust from the palm of my hand
A small reminder that I'm alive
I was catching the sun
Ain't no clouds on a day for fun
And no rain to keep me from staying dry

You were a summertime song
Shorts cut high with no shoes on
I couldn't let you pass me by today
You were licking your lips
I'd walk on you with my fingertips
Good God, I gotta thank the Lord for making you this way

Take you back home 'cause I wanted to
Put on my best for only you
Oh, girl, you know that when I'm through you're mine
How you like that on top of you?
Start up again 'cause you want me to
I really don't care just how we do as long as I get inside

I know, you know, that everything's gonna be all right now
I know, you know, that everything's gonna be all right now
Track Name: Tomorrow
Come a little closer to me baby
I wanna smell the sweat on you
Come a little closer to me baby
I wanna taste the smile off you tonight
Come a little closer to me baby
Blind me with your voice
Come a little closer to me baby
And let me sing this song for you tonight

And come away
We'll go dancing, dancing in the rain
Tomorrow, let it wash our troubles away

We are
Who we are
And we are
In love
So come over here
And whisper in my ear
And tell me
Tell me that you love me tonight

And come away
We'll go dancing, dancing in the rain
Tomorrow, let it wash our troubles away
While it's pouring outside
I've got us a fire burning bright for you
Splash into puddles
Take off your shoes and let it wash it all away
Clouds may be dark right
But that's okay
Take off your shoes and wash it all away

I hear you outside baby
Calling to come out to you
While raindrops fall on your head, your feet
Sounds like maybe I'll have to
While it's pouring outside
Take my hand and we'll go dancing
'Til streetlights go down
But we're still up
Clouds may be dark right? But that's okay
Take off your shoes and wash it all away
Wash it all away
Track Name: Marmalade, the cat
Marmalade the cat, chases a yellow leaf in front of piles of leaves as I raked
Under legs and trees she finds a wolly worm and chases the wolly worm away
Marmalade the cat, she says she doesn't want it, only wants the leaf that she was chasing before
I know that I can't help her find her leaf but I know when she's done, I'll say to her

Marmalade can we be friends forever?
And we can chase leaves and chase wolly worms away
I know it might be hard 'cause you're a cat and I'm a person
But Marmalade I love you

Marmalade the cat, awake outside my window, scratching at the glass, it's time for me to wake up
The picnic is already in the basket but Marmalade needs food as well
Marmalade the cat, she says she doesn't want it, only wants the food that I am eating too
I'll take her with me in the picnic basket and I know when we're done I'll say to her

Marmalade can we be friends forever and we can go on picnics every single day
I know it might be hard 'cause you're a cat and I'm a person
But Marmalade I love you

Marmalade can we be friends forever?
And we can chase leaves and chase wolly worms away
I know it might be hard 'cause you're a cat and I'm a person
But Marmalade I love you

Marmalade can we be friends forever and we can go on picnics every single day
I know it might be hard 'cause you're a cat and I'm a person
But Marmalade I love you
Track Name: Reaper
My feet are on the ground
Eyes up, my open, taste in the sun
And look at me now
FInd out what all was said and done
And I feel it out
Feel up my problems to the bone
I move around somehow
Waiting for my six feet to be dug out

Why so low?
The world's still turning, why are you so down?
Why so slow?
You can take your time, but the world's still turning, turning
'Round, sun up sun down, days pas you by
And look at you now
All this daylight and you're buried six feet underground

What is it like
Living life always on your feet?
And what is it like
All the time worrying about what you need?
You wanted the sun
So she came down from above
You wanted the sun
But what you found out was all you needed was this

Love in your life
Love before you die
Love you can give
Love from my head
And let it pour from my hands
And let it rain down over you
I will when I can
I will when I can

Think about your life
It's hot outside, why do you act so cold?
Come out from inside
Come out while you're young before you get too old
FIll up your heart
Fill your head and cover your bones
Let's start at the start
Before too long you'll find you way back to the

Love in your life
Love before you die
Love you can give
Love from my head
And let it pour from my hands
And let it rain down over you
I will when I can
I will when I can
Track Name: Remember Two Things
I packed my bags the other night
I thought I heard you crying out my car's back right window
Check my mirror tonight

I knew the things that you were saying
Right up to departure were the truth
But it's hard for me too.

You say, you say, you say
That we can work it out and I don't have to go
But I know that's no-can-do.

So when I go, please don't follow me
We both know that we need
Space and time to recover from what just happened here
I know you want to come, but stay and remember the two things
That I said to you last night before I turned out the light
I said "I love you"
I said "I love you"
And I meant it

It's hard for you right now
But sooner or later you'll see that something happened between us
For the good

"For the good?" you say, "It can't be that way
you're leaving, leaving me here all alone,
Please turn on your phone
Every once in a while so I can call and
Tell you 'I love you' or maybe we could just talk..."

Listen, when I go, please don't follow me
We both know we need some
Space and time to recover from what just happened here
I know you want to cry, but hold back your tears and remember the two things
That I said to you last night before I turned out the light
I said "I love you"
I said "I love you"
And I meant it

We had a good run for our day
I know right now that it's hard to believe that
But it's true

But don't misconstrue what I'mm saying
We're not meant to be together, but I'll always think about you
I'll always think about you

You say, you say, you say "I've lost count of the days and how many times you've done this.
And things have always worked out between us."
But hold on, you gotta understand that this time something happened between us

So when I go, please don't follow me
We both know that we need some
Space and time to recover from what just happened here
I know right now you feel like you wanna die but hold off that thought and remember two things
I said to you last night before I turned off the light
I said "I love you"
I said "I love you"
And I meant it
Track Name: #66
Here I go again
I dance across the world just to meet you
I think time has proved me well
And I think I've put on a pretty good show
And we know how the world loves their shows

And if you should leave me
I'll rest in knowing that I
Bounced around the world for a little while
On your time
Track Name: Lynn, the cracksmoking bus driver
It's Lynn, the cracksmoking bus driver
She's higher than the clouds
It's Lynn, the cracksmoking bus driver
She's higher than, higher than me.
And I smoke two pounds a day from my purple bong

Lynn, she drives a school bus
And on two wheels she rides
Lynn, when she drives on the freeway
It feels like we're falling off the side

It's Lynn, the cracksmoking bus driver
She's higher than the birds
It's Lynn, the cracksmoking bus driver
She's higher than, higher than me.
And I just bought another dime bag from the hobo off the street

Lynn, when she drives
It's like we're on the race track
Lynn, sometimes I think she smokes
More than just crack

Lynn, Lynn
Lynn, Lynn

Sit, sit down, she says
Sit, sit down, she says
Sit, sit down, she says
Sit, sit down, she says

Don't write on the seats or you'll get written up
But she never catches me, she don't give a fuck, yeah!

She never wears color, she only wears black
So you give her the middle finger when she turns her back to us!

It's Lynn, the cracksmoking bus driver
She's higher than the clouds
It's Lynn, the cracksmoking bus driver
She's higher than, higher than me.
