Lovely Day 04:05
The weather is frighting The thunder and lighting Seem to be having their way But as far as I'm concerned it's a lovely day Can you hear my heart callin' With every drip drop of the rain fallin' I need you to bring your warmth to me Take this cloudy day, baby And make it ok, baby Just for me The weather is frighting The thunder and lighting Seem to be having their way But as far as I'm concerned it's a lovely day Now if you tried to leave Im frightened Your kisses hit me like lighting I need your electricity It powers my world, baby Makin' those lights shine bright, baby You help me to see Let the rain pitter patter but it really doesn't matter If the skies are gray Long as I can be wit chu, It's a lovely day As long as I can be with you, It's a lovely day

Dreams 04:17
Dreams gotta a way of takin a hold over me Sometimes they're all I can see A veil over my reality Dreams are always sending me head over feet Got me stumblin and fallin Chasin em down the street Now I'm sleepwalking again and it's getting harder my friend to tear myself away from the places I like to stay and wake up from my sweet sweet sweet dream Dreams, I can finally be as cool as ice I guess I'll just keep hitting the snooze On that big ol' alarm clock of life Dreams, They're everything I could ever wish to be A bird in flight, an explorer of the seas Maybe a movie star on that silver screen But I'm sleepwalkin again and it's getting harder my friend To tear myself away from the places I like to make and wake up from my sweet dreams

This is an open letter to the future generations Don't do what your daddies did Some were defiant, some lovers, some tyrants but you're standing on the shoulders of giants it's up to you to bring us to some place new It's been said it can't be done Said the war it can't be won We say a lot of things that don't make no sense I try to rip it up and turn it out Find out what it's all about but still can't find no rest This is an open letter to the future generations Don't do what your daddies did Some were defiant, some lovers, some tyrants but you're standing on the shoulders of giants it's up to you to bring us to some place new Takin' Just takin' and takin' Well, where's all this takin' comin' from? To get what you got someone else is losin' a lot Well is that just the way it's just posed to be? What about creating your own destiny? This is an open letter to the future generations Don't do what your daddies did Some were defiant, some lovers, some tyrants but you're standing on the shoulders of giants it's up to you to bring us to some place new

It could've been up to me It could be up to you But nobody wants to take it to far The stone's to heavy to carry baby It's breaking backs left and right Keepin' me up at night Baby you know it's true It's to heavy for me, it's to heavy for you Well now what we gonna do Stay up all night drinkin whiskey and now the sun's comin' up too Pour another one to wash away those revelation blues

Killin' Time 04:01
i spot a beam of light in the distance peaking through the clouds i know there's a bright sun up there somewhere i want to get to it but i dont know how CHORUS guess im just killin time, killin time waiting for the sun to shine (2xs) well then i get to thinkin maybe i can try to build my own spaceship and fly it high into the sky guess im just killin time, killin time waiting for the sun to shine Sometimes it feels like there's nothing i can do to be living is to be having the blues my heart may keep on cryin' but i'll be alright if i just keep on tryin Solo guess im just killin time, killin time waiting for the sun to shine

The Big Bang 01:28

The ultimate freedom is facing the unknown Among the stars we sail Tears fall and float their way back home I'm filled with joy and I'm filled with pain Everything to lose and Everything to gain I keep on searchin' for a brand new world What will I find? Some greater truth that can move me to my soul? Where we'll end up, I don't know It's about the journey when you're going with the flow I'm filled with joy and I'm filled with pain Everything to lose and Everything to gain I keep on searchin' for a brand new world

Hangin' out at the beach The moon is high Look over at you, see a twinkle in your eye My baby left me under the boardwalk cryin' It's a tear drop rollin' down your cheek Another little drip in a big ol' sea My baby left me under the boardwalk cryin' Oh my baby got lots more to unload Been a bad bad boy don't you know My baby left me under the boardwalk cryin' I was slackin' where I should'a been tryin' Her heart was achin and her soul was dying My baby left me under the boardwalk cryin'

Walking to the tempo of your own beat? Something's right with you Don't give a damn about the word on the street? Something's right with you Can I fill this hole in my soul with every little last thing that could be owned? No Could I fulfill the need with every little last substance that you've ever seen? No Racing towards the edge of your mind? Something's right with you Getting lost in a mist of space and time? Something's right with you Can I fill this hole in my soul with every little last thing that could be sold? No Can I fulfill the need with every little last substance that you've ever seen? No Could I change the world, Well can I change your mind? It's a slippy slope I'm slidin' down Could you throw me a line? Well now whateva you do Make sure something's right with you As long as you stay true Something's right with you

Baby, you got me going crazy feeling like I can’t please you It’s like every misstep I take is two more goin' right back to the blues Well I’m dying when I’m away from you But my heart is crying when you come home and it gets all black n blue Maybe I’m crazy but I feel like you hate to be in love with me Oh tell me true, cause I’m tired of trippin’ Like the time when you tied together both my shoe laces I love that you’re gettin’ your kicks But do you have to break me down to my knees? Well I’ve been trying to work it through And I’d be lying if I said it’s all good with my boo I know it sounds crazy but it feels like I hate to be in love with you
11.
The first time can be the worst time not the best time or a blessed time but maybe it could grow from here The second guess is the next test the worst batch of a tempting catch got you counting all the fish in the seas But don’t kid yourself kid, You saw the star light it guided you through a pitch black night the journey is like trying to grab a haze or catch a dream that you know you’ve seen On the next pass, get your best stash and sit outside for a while with no one around just listen to the sounds The book of life, it opens up like an audible chorus of a grand symphony and it’s more beautiful than any dream could be You can try to reach the stars with all your might Keep tryin’ kid, You’re doin’ all right When we’re all called home that’s the place we’ll go Where there’s no difference between you or me or the spaces in between You can try to reach the stars with all your might Keep tryin’ kid, You’re doin’ all right When we’re all called home that’s the place we’ll go Where there’s no difference between you or me or the skies or the seas the sun or the rain, the love or the pain
