In The Rain 03:33
In the Rain I have noticed you sometimes when you’re outside late at night I can see you through my window pane smoking your cigar in the rain YoU’re faithful but I know she don’t love you Not the way that you want her to You’re faithful but I know You are lonely Wishin’ she would come sit with you You’re stacking up your building blocks And you’re tryin’ to climb to the top But she’s slowly pulling out on you Tryin’ to find her own way And navigate through her mistakes Wondering which feelings are true Cause You’re faithful and she knows she don’t love you Not the way that she used to You’re faithful and she knows You are lonely Wishin’ she would come sit with you Maybe if you in your pain Could put your cigar out in the rain And go inside and tell her All you wanted was her love And that’s still what you prefer Cause you’re faithful and I know That she wants to Learn how again to love you You’re faithful and I know That she’s lonely So go and make it right You gotta find her every night Look into her eyes And tell her that you love her light Baby give it one more try

'Round the Globe Can we get a sailboat chasin’ down the sunset as we float ‘round and ’round the globe Salty air and balmy nights Guided only by the lights above And a lot of little love All the world is out there waiting to explore And all our troubles here wantin’ to be ignored Oh let’s go To India and Ireland ‘round Africa and back again We don't really need to know just where we’ll go Maybe Canada then to Brazil and through the alpine foothills All I really wanna know is can we go Baby can we go ‘Round and ’round the globe Set the sails to the wind I’m not even askin’ if or when We’re coming back again Cut the anchor cast away No sense waitin’ for another day No time left to stay Cause all the waters out there need some company And who could ride them better now than you and me Oh we’re home free All the places we could see It doesn’t matter where we’ll be As long as there is you and me Australia and Germany, Japan and then the Philippians, Puerto Rico and Tobago Jamaica and then Providence then up to Maine it just makes sense San Diego and Hilo Baby can we go ‘Round and ’round the globe

Forget What I Said Saw you the other day Tried to go the other way But you wanted to talk so I had to stay You know words fall out sometimes without reasons or rhymes It doesn't mean you can believE all of the lines I tried to take it slow but my heart spun out of control Could you forget just what I said put it all out of your head don't take me too seriously sometimes what I say comes out the wrong way I don't mean to come on to you I tried to not be a fool But tried too hard to be cool Cause when I'm with you I get nervous Sometimes I say things And I'm not sure what it means But somehow in your eyes I find purpose I'll try to take it slow but my heart's still out of control Could you forget just what I said put it all out of your head don't take me too seriously sometimes what I say comes out the wrong way I don't mean to come on to you And I can't help but notice The way you seem to want this But maybe it's just me And you're really ready

Beautiful Dreamer Does it not seem crazy That nothin's for real You can't touch anything That you can feel You spend your time building What you never see And wonder why people Find it hard to believe Beautiful dreamer I know who you are You were a believer back at the start The world that you once thought Might welcome you in Has left you out cold, not cared where you've been Oh dreamer, dream again You had a fire inside of your soul that made us all wonder where it would go You lay it all out there Your heart on your sleeve But they have been telling you lies That you shouldn't believe Beautiful dreamer I know who you are You were a believer back at the start your heart of gold still has treasures untold but it’’s buried in all of your doubt beautiful dreamer don’t give up now. Every note that you've had to sing You're tellin yourself this wasn't your dream A constant reminder of all that's been wrong You start to feel like this isn't your song But if you step back for a minute someday you'll see It's more than a song, it's a symphony

Now it Begins All at once you see Your life flashing Before your eyes can close in the tears that sting And your nose it burns As the years turn Into songs that fade away Before you can learn all the words And dance to the rhythms you've heard All along you have played These songs unafraid of the end But now it begins Deep breath can be the best Thing your heart needs As you feel it bleed After all you've learned As the years turned Into songs that fade away Young or old it comes for us both and The day we came in was The beginning of the end

Perfectly You I was just thinking of you all you do That makes me happy There have been so many things try to come between you and me But you and I were made to be one Just like the sky and the sun Some days I don’t really wanna shine But you still hold me up high Giving me reason to come alive Reminding me there’s a lonely sky It may not be perfectly blue but baby it’s perfectly you I could write so many songs all about the things that we’ve done wrong But you and I both can agree that would not accomplish anything Some days I don’t really wanna shine But you still hold me up high Giving me reason to come alive Reminding me there’s a lonely sky It may not be perfectly blue but baby it’s perfectly you So let’s start dreaming of how We won’t let our failures stop us now :

Nicer 03:16
Nicer Maybe if you could spend a little time being nicer You'd be ok I bet if you would spend a little time being nicer You'd have a better day We all have our days And our quirky little ways I know you, you got things to do But don't forget to laugh Get the monkey off your back Share a smile It'll last for a while This world's dark enough It could use a little love So spread the light and brighten it up I know you can make Someone else's day So why don't you choose the better way

Old Dreams 03:54
Old Dreams I can almost see the city lights past the falling rain and your perfect eyes Maybe you and I can find a place to hide where fragile hearts can come alive I know that you have seen it all The lights, the moon, the stars that fall But maybe this time with your hand in mine it'll feel just like the first time Do you think our dreams are too old And all of this is just stories told I know, it's hard to believe When there's nothing there to see But you are enough for me to believe In these old dreams I've been sleepless for a while now Seattle's got me dreaming 'bout All the somedays we could have and how your love could end all of my doubt Maybe all the wrong will be made right When in your arms you hold me tight And guide me through the dark of night And let our love be seen in the light Do you think our dreams are too old And all of this is just stories told I know, it's hard to believe When there's nothing there to see But you are enough for me to believe In these old dreams

Steady My Soul Steady my soul As I try to crawlin’ out of this hole Where I keep fallin’ Wrong place at the wrong time With the strong man stealing my life And this all got out of control Some say that it's OK Close their eyes and walk away But I can't pretend I don't know So steady my soul : Like a moth to the flame I am drawn to the place Where my innocence cannot be sold But I come up holding shame From all my worst mistakes And the incidents I cannot let go So steady my soul Steady my soul I'm lookin for freedom It's taken a toll These lies I believed in They sound right in the moment But the next night I'm broken Fantasies never console In my mind I'm hoping I'll get back what was stolen Then my barren heart can be whole So steady my soul : I come up throwing blame With a cold bitter rage At the incidents that left me low So steady my soul I know who I've been isn't me And who I was then Is not who I have to be : I put on a new name And I'm covered in grace From the incidents I don't have to hold You steady my soul
