Track Name: Air I'm Breathing
I'm walking
Take one step, and two behind
I'm talking
Got so much to say, and so little time
I'm dreaming
But I'm not sleeping, my life away
I'm hoping
Don't know where I'm going
But I'm on my way

I won't waste another day
On little things that don't mean nothing
I just want to say
It took some time, but I finally see it
Thank you for the air I'm breathing

She's running
Like a cat, that's the way she moves
She's rolling
Like a wheel, yeah that's her groove
She's laughing
Really laughing, laughing with me
She's smiling
I always love it when
When she smiles at me

I won't waste another day
On little things that don't mean nothing
I just want to say
It took some time, but I finally see it
Thank you for the air I'm breathing

We’re living this merry-go-round, always up and down
We’re forgiven, all forgiven
We’re glory bound

I won't waste another day
On little things that don't mean nothing
I just want to say
It took some time, but I finally see it
Thank you for the air I breathe
Chorus repeat
I’m breathing (repeat)
Track Name: Finally Movin' On
Walking in the morning sun, laughing at the rain so far away today
Rain so far away
Take my hand and sing a song, crazy sunshine song
So happy to see you smile, we’ve waited way too long

And what you don’t know, how are you gonna let it go?
The anchor draggin’ us down
And me I don’t mind, if you want to take your time
Just as long as we are finally movin’ on

Seven sisters in a dream, seven stars above
They’re talking bout’ love sweet love, just can’t get enough
Seven days till we reach home, let me get back home
I’m leaving this place behind
Cause we’ve been here way too long

And what you don’t know, how are you gonna let it go?
The anchor draggin’ us down
And me I don’t mind, if you want to take your time
Just as long as we are finally movin’ on
Finally movin’ on

(Inst section)

And what you don’t know, how are you gonna let it go?
The anchor draggin’ us down
And me I don’t mind, if you want to take your time
Finally movin’ on
And what you don’t see, how are you gonna let it be?
Stop draggin’ that anchor around
And me I don’t mind, if you want to take your time
Just as long as we are finally
Just as long as we are finally movin’ on
Track Name: Waiting On The Sun
I’ve made so many mistakes
Sometimes it’s hard to keep em’ all straight in my head. . yes it is
I’ve been knocked down so many times, talked down too many times
If what they is true, well I should be dead

Heaven only knows it ain’t easy
You’ll never be alone if you can see it

I’ll be waiting, waiting, waiting on the sun
I’ll be waiting, waiting, waiting on the sun
When the morning comes and the moon and stars have gone
I’ll be waiting, waiting, waiting on the sun

I’ve lost the world from the palm of my hand
I let the girl and all the money go straight to my head. . yes I did
Now I’m back at the end of the line, start me over one more time
Can’t believe it’s true but here I go again

Heaven only knows it ain’t easy
You’ll never be alone if you can see it

I’ll be waiting, waiting, waiting on the sun
I’ll be waiting, waiting, waiting on the sun
When the morning comes and the moon and stars have gone
I’ll be waiting, waiting, waiting on the sun

So when you think it’s over don’t give up
Just when you think that you have had enough
Here it comes

I’ll be waiting, waiting, waiting on the sun
I’ll be waiting, waiting, waiting on the sun
When the morning comes and the moon and stars have gone
I’ll be waiting, waiting, waiting on the sun

Waiting On The Sun, Waiting On The Sun, Waiting On The Sun
Waiting On The Sun, there it is
Waiting On The Sun, there it is, there it is
Track Name: Won't Look Back
He was already gone, lost with his head full of wrong
Drifting with nowhere to go, and nothing to show
Till she came along, she believes in the songs that he sings
He tells her with all her desire “I’m gonna set the world on fire”

Oh what a life, oh what a day
Since you came into my little world
I want you to know, I wanted to say
Thank you for being a friend when I’m down
I need you around and I won’t look back
No I won’t look back at all

She was all the way down, but tryin’ to turn it around
She gotta heart made of gold, she won’t let it turn to stone
And he believes, he believes in all of her dreams
She whispers with all her desire “I’m gonna set the world on fire”

Oh what a life, oh what a day
Since you came into my little world
I want you to know, I wanted to say
Thank you for being a friend when I’m down
I need you around and I won’t look back
No I won’t look back at all

At all, at all , at all. . .
no I won’t look back at all

Oh what a life, oh what a day
Since you came into my little world
I want you to know, I wanted to say
Thank you for being a friend when I’m down
I need you around and I won’t look back
No I won’t look back at all

At all, at all , at all. . .
no I won’t look back at all
Track Name: Forget It All Again
Here comes another curve ball
Aren’t you glad you brought your glove?
Here comes another mule in your stall. . .
That crazy thing called love
Here comes another push
Can you take another shove?

And everyday we’re taking things as they come
We’re making our way back to the sun
Maybe someday we’ll learn half of what we need to know
And forget it all again by tomorrow


There goes another cloud
Hangin’ dark over my past
There goes another break
Why do the lucky run so fast?
There goes another heartache
Thought the last one would be the last

And everyday we’re taking things as they come…

Here comes the day I behave
And another second chance
Here comes another one
Slipping through my hands
Here comes the lesson now
Sing along if you can


And everyday we take the world as it comes
We’re making our way back to the sun
Maybe someday we’ll learn half of what we need to know
And forget it all again by tomorrow
Track Name: Jaded
Don’t want to cloud your blue skies baby I’ve got to let you know
I’ve been riding out this place for too long

Don’t let me disappear
Don’t want to lose another year or fade into the sun
Don’t want to be jaded, don’t let me be jaded

All my friends wrote me off a long time ago
But hey I’m going to write how the story goes
I’m gonna make a plan
Change the world
Reach for all the stars in the sky tonight
I’m never coming down

Don’t let me disappear
Don’t want to lose another year or fade into the sun
Don’t want to be jaded, don’t let me be jaded
Don’t want to be jaded, don’t let me be jaded

Am I too late to set the record straight?
Am I fading out or am I just jaded?

Don’t let me disappear
Don’t want to lose another year or fade into the sun
Don’t let me disappear
Don’t want to lose another year or fade into the sun
Don’t want to be jaded

Don’t let me fade into the sun
Don’t want to be jaded
Don’t let me fade into the sun
Don’t want to be jaded, don’t let me fade into the sun
Don’t want to be jaded, don’t let me fade into the sun. . .
Track Name: This Is A Love Song
Just when I thought that the fog would never clear
You know the constellations, they delivered you here
I was convinced that the sun was eclipsed by a life so hard

This is a love song
Don’t you think we need one?
Never been more awake, never been quite so alive
This is a love song
How could it be wrong?

Hey baby have you read all the headlines today?
It’s a killing time and we’ll never be the same
When revenge is a smoking gun
And we all live under the sun

This is a love song
Don’t you think we need one?
Never been more awake, never been quite so alive
This is a love song
Don’t you think we need one?
Never been more awake, never been quite so alive
This is a love song
How could it be wrong? How could it be?

I am overcome
And all the innocence is gone
Where’d you go? Where’d you go? Where’d you go?
Where did you go? I’m losing you

This is a love song
Don’t you think we need one?
Never been more awake, never been quite so alive
This is a love song
Don’t you think we need one?
Never been more awake, never been quite so alive
This is a love song
How could it be? How could it be?

And all the innocence is gone
Where’d you go? Gone. Where’d you go?
Gone, gone. . .this is a love song
Track Name: Here We Are
In my lifetime of wondering, whatever would the future bring?
And will we ever know?
So I tried to find a better way, could never find the words to say
And now those days are gone

I’m not alone anymore, I’m not alone anymore

We can take out time, time is on our side
Get the feeling right if it takes us all night
We don’t need to know which way the wind may blow
Cause here we are

With you I want to be, between the moon and a sea of light in your eyes
And in time you’ll help me change my ways, and help me see the light of day
Where there was only night

I’m not alone anymore, I’m not alone anymore

We can take out time, time is on our side
Get the feeling right if it takes us all night
We don’t need to know which way the wind may blow
Cause here we are
We can drive for miles, take it all in stride
We can fall asleep neath’ the California sky
Direction we don’t know, wherever we may go
Here we are

I’m not alone anymore, I’m not alone anymore

We can take out time, time is on our side
Get the feeling right if it takes us all night
We don’t need to know which way the wind may blow
Cause here we are
We can drive for miles, take it all in stride
We can fall asleep neath’ the California sky
Direction we don’t know, wherever we may go
Here we are
Track Name: So Let Me In
Before we said “hello” you knew what this was all about
So you’re not gonna make me cry
Yesterday is gone. don’t let it keep you up at night. . .
Like it’s coming after you

In every way we are the same
It’s true. In every way we are the same

So let me in, so let me in
I see the universe in your eyes
So let me in, so let me in
Before the future is saying goodbye

When heaven has gone away does it lead your mind to stray at night?
The wheels keep spinning around but you just stay in place
So come and join the human race, like it’s coming after you

In every way we are the same
It’s true. In every way we are the same

So let me in, so let me in
I see the universe in your eyes
So let me in, so let me in
Before the future is saying goodbye
So let me in, so let me in
Into the universe in your eyes

So let me in, so let me in
I see the universe in your eyes
So let me in, so let me in
Before the future is saying goodbye
So let me in, so let me in
Into the universe in your eyes
Track Name: Hope You're happy
I hope you’re happy now
I hope you’re finding how
You let it slip away
All the love we made
I hope you’re happy

It’s too late for sorry now
It’s too late to turn around

I hope you’re happy now
A love you’ll live without
So put on a happy face
Whatever gets you through the day
But I know you’re sorry now

So cry yourself to sleep
with the secrets that you keep

It’s too late for sorry now
It’s too late to turn around
I hope you’re happy

Are you willing it to be?
Letting go, the life you used to know
Bridges burning down

It’s too late to cross them now
It’s too late to turn around
Much too late for sorry

So cry yourself to sleep
With the secrets that you keep

It’s too late for sorry now
It’s too late to turn around
I hope you’re happy now
I hope you’re happy
Track Name: The Desert and the Rain
I thought I knew it all, I used to be so sure
But that ain’t working for me anymore
I could make a list, write it all down
All the reasons to leave or hang around
But I’m shaking and I’m nervous, like everything is new
I want to tell you, I need to tell you

If I hesitate, it’s cause I don’t know what to say
It might seem strange
But how can I explain the desert and the rain, the light as it hits your face?
Without a doubt, I’m holding out for you

Take it as it comes, a place under the sun
I know we can find it if we try
It’s more than just a wish or a dream I can’t forget when I wake up
It took so long to wake up

If I hesitate, it’s cause I don’t know what to say
It might seem strange
But how can I explain the desert and the rain, the light as it hits your face?
Without a doubt, I’m holding out for you

Now I understand, see the plan right in front of me
We can be all we want to be
Take my hand my friend
Don’t want to wait another day to give you everything
I hope I’m not too late

If I hesitate, it’s cause I don’t know what to say
It might seem strange
But how can I explain the desert and the rain, the light as it hits your face?
Without a doubt, I’m holding out
Without a doubt I’m holding. . .
If I hesitate, it’s cause I don’t know what to say
It might seem strange
But how can I explain the desert and the rain, the light as it hits your face?
Without a doubt, I’m holding out for you

Holding out for you
