Track Name: WAKEMEUP
Help me I am trapped inside myself
Love, come and get me out of here
Out of here
I'm trapped, I'm swimming in sleep
In sleep

Lost in my dreams
Going out to space
I'm falling so fast
Far away
Far away
I'm drifting
Far away
Far away

I'm drifting
Far away
Far away
Far away

Let me come back to play
To play

Let me come back to play
Again

It hurts to know you're far away
It hurts to sit and waste away
It hurts to know you'll never stay

Love, dear love
Wake me up
And take me away
Away
Away
Away

Love, dear love
Wake me up
Each day
Track Name: California
I'm going to California today
I don't wanna hear what you say
What you say

I'm going to find my way

And you wanna be where you are
And that's ok
But I have to go and find my way

Yes you wanna stay where you are
And that's ok
It's ok

I tried to tell you
But you push me away

I tried to love you
But you held me away

In every way
In every way
In every way
In every way

I'm not gonna stay here anyway
I'm not gonna stay here anyway
Anyway
Track Name: Full Moon Song
(Spoken) You can't relive a moment can you in this life, you just have to make it up as you go, right? Right!

Hey Miss Moon are you jealous of the Sun
I'm in her shadow you're in her light
I dream in darkness all through the night
But you sit and shine so oooo
I see you oooo
Light up my night

And sometimes I mistake you for the Sun
And that's my fault

Hey Miss Moon are you jealous of the Sun
She's sitting there having all your fun
She has me all day long
But you can't take it
So you come and break it
All night
All night

I remember you felt bad about your butt
You went on a diet and I couldn't see you
But you came back as full as ever
And it made me feel so light

'Cause Miss Moon
You're small
But you shine so bright

Yes you're small but
You're shining so bright

Tonight
Tonight
Tonight
Tonight
Tonight
Tonight
Tonight

oooooooooooooooooOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Goodnight
Track Name: It's Here, All Around You
How can I tell you in the middle of the night
Nothing matters at all
You are free to be
What you feel inside
It's so much to take
So everyone goes away to bed
In their head
To sleep
To dream
What they want
Instead of being awake
And trying to do
What they want to do
Cause they don't understand
That in the night
I will hold your hand
What you want will stand
By your side

It's always there
By your side
It's always there

Don't you hide
Don't you hide
Don't you hide
Don't you hide

In the middle of the night
All the spirits stand so bright
By your side
They're all waiting
To come take you where you want to
Shine through

Sweet child....carry me through...always with you...you don't have to try...you don't have to worry...you just have to sit back and relax don't you hurry....i'm telling you now...don't you worry...don't you hurry...just be what you wanted

It might involve
You forgetting
Everything
That entered
Your mind
Your mind
Your mind
You are mine
Track Name: Dispatches From Paris on a Borrowed Guitar
It's so easy sometimes
And so hard some other times
It's so easy to try and easy to cry sometimes
It's so easy to say everything at once and then regret it
But I'm proud of myself cause I tried but I didn't get it

Here I am now in this place all alone
Somehow alone is where I'm home
Somehow alone is where I'm home

Maybe I should learn to play guitar better than I do
Maybe I should pick who I love better than you
Maybe I should not do anything at all

I'm gonna go out and buy some wine
Get some food and have my fun
In my little world
With my giant head
In my empty bed


I don't mean this to sound quite as sad as it might
I don't want you to think you're my favorite thing in sight

Their's some food out there that I have to bite
And I'm tired of feeling lonely tonight.
Track Name: Ode to Womankind
Little girl wake up
It aint easy when you are so nice
When you see it in their eyes
And you realize all their lies

Cause Love is as deep as the grave you crave
Yes Love is as deep as the grave you crave

Hey pretty lady
It aint easy when you are so strong
You've been waiting for so long
Don't grow hazy
Don't get cold
It's not easy growing old

Cause Love is as deep as the place you save
Yes Love is as deep as the place you save

You, Dear Mother
It aint easy to be so far
When you've given all you had
Cause it makes you so glad
When those around you are not sad

Cause Love is as deep as the light you gave
Yes Love is as deep as the light you gave

Love is as deep as the grave you craved
And Love is as deep as the place you saved
Cause Love goes as deep as the light you gave
And gave
You gave
And you gave
And you gave
Track Name: Together We Are Free
It's days like this I wonder why
What you tell me I cannot try
Maybe cause I think it's just a lie
That what I'm here for is to die

And if I'm looking right through you
When you tell me what to do
You want to make me just like you
When what I want is to be true
And what I do is something new

So let me sit here for a while
While you run another mile
Let me carefree
So I can show you what's in me

I am you and you are me
I am you and you are me
And together we are free
And together we are free
Track Name: I Adore You
Even though you're very strange
Everyday I turn the page
I can't tell if you love me
I can wait and wait and see

Cause I adore you
Adore you
Adore you
Adore you

If one day you tell me
That you love me so much
I am telling you so you see
I've been crying out for your touch

Cause I adore you
Adore you
Yeah I adore you
Adore you

If one day you tell me so
I will never let you go
I will want the world to see
That you're the only one for me

Cause I adore you
Adore you
Adore you
Adore you

Adore you
Adore you

Do I bore you?
When I adore you?
Track Name: Shadow Man
Shadow Man
Shadow Man

Where you stand
Light won't land

I saw you by the wall
Close enough to recall

Shadow Man
Shadow Man

Block my light
Bring me down

You made me run and fall
But you weren't there at all
Track Name: Ballad for Pisces
let me cry another tear
while i see you
walk away my dear
and i'll sing
my goodbye

dying just to keep you near
while you
push away what you fear
and i
had to try

trying just to call you dear
but i know
i couldn't keep you here
and you
think i lie

does it matter anyway
what i sing
what i say
what i pray
it's alright
i'll be fine
