Track Name: Come On In
Right on Prospect on the left side
Apartment B-L-Aine
You’re nicely dressed, you brought some good wine
Can you hear the piano play?

Everybody come on in
Everybody come on in
It’s all about to begin so just come on in
Everybody come on in
Everybody come on in
It’s all about to begin so just come on in
Track Name: Carolina Sky
Well isn’t she a little ray of sunshine
The way she dances under all the flashing lights
She writes me letters, makes me wanna be her guy
Maybe someday under her Carolina sky

I’ll stop by and we’ll drive to Carolina
Just you and I will spend some time together
Under that Carolina sky

My life is changin’ every time I blink my eyes
But for some reason I can’t get her off my mind
I’m meeting girls but they’re nothing like her kind
Someday we’ll meet under her Carolina sky

I’ll stop by and we’ll drive to Carolina
Just you and I will spend some time together
Under that Carolina sky

Take me home with you to Carolina
Take me home with you to Carolina
If you take me home, you’ll never be alone
Under that Carolina sky
Under that Carolina sky
Under that Carolina sky
Under that Carolina sky
Track Name: Get It Right
Making fun of the raindrops when it just turns out that way
Looking down on the sunshine as you fly away
Curled up in the corner, where on your knees you’ll pray
No one said it was easy living this way

But I could never be that way (repeat three times)

‘Cause I’m a loser in my head
So I’ll paint tomorrow with the tears I’ve shed
And if I make peace from within this fight
I’ll know someday I’m gonna get it right

Looking down at the children who can see the years on my face
I’ve gotta get it back to being their way
‘Cause in the times that I’m livin’ there’s a price you’ll have to pay
For everything that comes your way

But I could never be that way
I could never be that way
(I worked so hard, never gave up tryin’)
I could never be that way
(I worked so hard, never gave up tryin’)
I could never be that way
(I worked so hard, never gave up tryin’)

‘Cause I’m a loser in my head
So I’ll paint tomorrow with the tears I’ve shed
And if I make peace from within this fight
I’ll know someday I’m gonna get it right
I’ll know someday I’m gonna get it right
I’ll know someday I’m gonna get it right
I’ll know someday I’m gonna get it right
Track Name: Superstar
When I grown up I want to be a superstar
‘Cause she said then she’d really like me
I’ve got two shit jobs and I’m driving a beat car
And now my future doesn’t seem very likely
Well I know and it hurts me
That I just wasn’t good enough
Well I know and it hurts me
That I just wasn’t good enough
Well I know and it hurts me
That I just wasn’t good enough
Well I know and it hurts me
That I just wasn’t good enough for you
The room’s getting smaller and I’m running out of air to breathe
And someday a future housewife is gonna lynch me
I read Jack’s book, it was called A Gathering of Seeds
So I tried to show my love but she won’t let me
Well I know and it hurts me
That I just wasn’t good enough
Well I know and it hurts me
That I just wasn’t good enough
Well I know and it hurts me
That I just wasn’t good enough
Well I know and it hurts me
That I just wasn’t good enough for you
Oooo it’s like an addiction
It makes me cry and hurt inside
Well I know and it hurts me
That I just wasn’t good enough
Well I know and it hurts me
That I just wasn’t good enough
Well I know and it hurts me
That I just wasn’t good enough
Well I know and it hurts me
That I just wasn’t good enough for you
Track Name: Strawberry Chelsea
Chelsea, there’s somethin’ about your presence that drives me mad
I want to get close to you, Strawberry Chelsea
I miss her being there talkin’ to me like a friend
And I may have really cared if she had let me in
But now it’s lookin’ like she just don’t care about me
Chelsea, there’s somethin’ about your presence that drives me mad
I want to get close to you, Strawberry Chelsea
And when Chelsea walks by, I smell her gentle cry
She’s reaching out for change, but things just stay the same
Now she’s lookin’ so alone, I can change that!
Chelsea, there’s somethin’ about your presence that drives me mad
I want to get close to you, Strawberry Chelsea
Where did I go wrong?
Where did I fall down?
She’s not too impressed, there’s other guys around
Chelsea, there’s somethin’ about your presence that drives me mad
I want to get close to you, Strawberry Chelsea
Track Name: Carolina Storm
I was lost in a scene chasin’ the rain
I was lookin’ for a ray of sunshine but it never came
I thought she was someone I was looking for
Like a light in the fallout shelter, but it shines no more
I thought it was special, it got me so inspired
Brought me up to a new perspective, but baby now I’m tired
And as I walked away she said:
“Don’t look behind ya, ‘cause there’s a storm in Carolina”
It was after the rain, when you don’t get wet
Like all the open hearted people who give and never get
She was ready to jump until she got too close
She’ll probably think I’m a total asshole when she reads this quote
But I’m tired of tryin’ so I’m laying it down
And maybe someday when the sky is clearing she’ll come back around
And as I walked away she said:
“Don’t look behind ya, ‘cause there’s a storm in Carolina”
The radiation underground has dug this grave
And all the sunshine in the clouds has turned to gray
All the love you create is gonna radiate
It’s gonna stop the rain from falling when the new day breaks
And as I walked away she said:
“Don’t look behind ya, ‘cause there’s a storm in Carolina”
