Track Name: Shoutin' Don't Count
Under the tidal wave
I’ve gotta getta way
Something ain’t right with my soul
I don’t know
Sometimes you gotta let go
Shoutin’ don’t count when no one knows
Under the Milky Way
Night will remove the day
‘Til it’s as dark as a hole
All that shows
Are the starts that still glow
Shoutin’ don’t count when no one knows
When no one really wants to know
You can tell them where to go
And put the “hell” in “Well hello”
Over the Hudson Bay
It’s such a gloomy day
These just aren’t my kind of folks
It’s too cold
And they just bought what I sold
Shoutin’ don’t count when no one knows
Track Name: Happy Faces
Happy faces in dark places
Filling all the empty spaces
Captain Murphy takes another drink
Doctor sees another patient
Drinks a cup to keep her up
No one told her life could be so cruel
But I want to show them
New and different places
Where they can discover
All those happy faces
All those happy faces smiling at you
Once the captain met a girl
To the south of Portugal
She broke his heart and left him all alone
Doctor Mason lost a patient
Quit her job and made her move
She took the captain’s ferry to her avenue
But I want to show them
New and different places
Where they can discover
All those happy faces
All those happy faces smiling at you
Track Name: Small Town Girl
Watch out girls she’s comin around
And she told me about the why, when, and how
Well she lost her heart and I lost mine
But she looks good and I feel fine
Small town girl is big city now
Downbeat rhythm is lost, then it’s found
And I’m so locked in that I can’t slow down
Well the one and three go two and four
As I walked in through her back door
Small town girl is big city now
But when things just don’t feel right
Then I see her late at night
And she brings this blind man sight
So I hold her tight, tight, tight
I play music, she plays the clown
We’re too busy laughin’ to ever cop a frown
Well I found her heart and she found mine
We’re in love and love is kind
Small town girl is big city now
Track Name: Someday You'll Be Mine
Sunshine I’m waiting
In the Gerbera sun wide open
So drink up you’re fading
And tell me things when you start to drink
The plans you were making
Were past the bar and left in your car
Constantly breaking
I fell again and put my faith in “when”
Baby I know
Because it kind of shows
And somewhere in my tree
You will see the other side of me
Although I’ve known you for some time
I wonder if it ever crossed your mind
That I have never left you behind
I’m hoping someday you’ll be mine
Silently praying
That you will see what I have come to be
When a chance could be waiting
To write the perfect song and you could sing along
The things you were saying
Put me in this mood and changed my attitude
And dreams that were fading
Made your life an art, I want a bigger part
Baby I know
Because it kind of shows
And somewhere in my tree
You will see the other side of me
Although I’ve known you for some time
I wonder if it ever crossed your mind
That I have never left you behind
I’m hoping someday you’ll be mine
Track Name: Blue Dolphin
Blue dolphins swim in formation
To the ocean away from the beach
There’s too much information
And the sun is way out of reach
Blue oceans are falling
To the sea of green
And blue dolphins are sending a frequency
Blue dolphins make a connection
Through a wave of energy
On the lonely sea of rejection
My soul is drownin’ me
Blue oceans are falling
To the sea of green
And blue dolphins are sending a frequency
Blue dolphins offer protection
When the fear of God is in me
Sending out another sign of affection
Rising up to the surface with me
Blue oceans are falling
To the sea of green
And blue dolphins are sending a frequency
Track Name: Our Life
Not sure what I would be without you
I never want to have to walk alone
It’s time I let you know
I’m never letting go
I think about my life before you
It’s simple things like you just being there
That makes me want to say
I’m happy here today
Our life
I contemplate the way I found you
And all the ways it could have never been
We questioned what we’re taught
And this is what we got.
Track Name: It Feels Like It's Real
Energy is moving all around you
Better listen before you miss the show
Inspiration brought you here and found you
Someone else’s song is all you know
All the cowboy boots that walk down Sunset
Never really used to be your scene
But there’s a validation there that you’ll get
If you play the part and join the team
Inside, we all find a way
Outside, we just smile
It’s a game we play
It’s all just a part of being from L.A.
But it feels like it’s real for a while
You can close the door a little louder
Let ‘em know that you don’t really care
Lift your head and look a little prouder
Acting like you’ve got no time to spare
In another routine conversation
Any depth is far beneath this crowd
Must admit I had my reservations
Wish it happened in another town
Inside, we all find a way
Outside, we just smile
It’s a game we play
It’s all just a part of being from L.A.
But it feels like it’s real for a while
Track Name: Surrender
Somewhere tonight
She’s waiting for her ride
To the party
Don’t be shy tonight
Dance with me one more time
Feel the love all around us
With our friends who surround us
Baby surrender like I do
Say hello to the night
Everything feels just right
At this party
On a warm summer night
I made you feel just right
Feel the love all around us
With our friends who surround us
Baby surrender like I do
Oh, what’s so wrong
With a little lovin’ for fun
By the moonlight, under the sun
Feel the love all around us
With our friends who surround us
Baby surrender like I do
Track Name: Almost Perfect
We almost made connections
We almost took the time
We almost thought the punishment just didn’t fit the crime
We almost had things settled
We almost hit the brink
We almost found some common ground one night over a drink
We almost seemed united
We almost left the state
We almost saw the civil war come marching through our gate
We almost had to wonder
If all of us could stay
We almost built a future on an almost perfect day
We almost stopped pretending
We almost did it first
We almost saw it changing from a blessing to a curse
We almost had the numbers
We almost felt complete
We almost had a world where everybody could compete
We almost saw the future
We almost said goodbye
We almost thought that love would win if everyone would try
We almost had to wonder
Is this the U.S.A.?
We almost built a future on an almost perfect day.
Track Name: Where She Used To Play
Things could be coming together
Or she could be falling apart
Guess it’d be nice
Just for one day
Back to the places where she used to play
But now she’s grown and she sits home alone
He thought that he’d know her forever
But she didn’t know where to start
Guess it’d be nice
Just for one day
Back to the places where she used to play
But now she’s grown and she wants to go home
She’s making decisions like she never had
There not always brilliant, but they’re not always bad
It’s nighttime in Paris and she missed her dad
It gets bad
Sometimes she feels sad
It seemed like a clear expectation
But she never wanted the part
Guess it’d be nice
Just for one day
Back to the places that she used to play
But now she’s grown and she sits home alone.
Track Name: Time To Say Goodbye
Time to say goodbye
I guess I could stick around
And I’d be fine
But I just don’t have the time
Time to say goodbye
In such a familiar place
I just don’t know
I think I really ought to go
Time to say goodbye
I’ve been in this town so long
And now I find
That I just don’t have the time
Time to say goodbye
It’s late so I’ll rest my eyes
And head below
I think I really ought to go
Time to say goodbye.
