Track Name: I'll Come Running
If the sky falls down all around your ears
I’ll come running
If you’re hoping for an angel and a devil appears
I’ll come running
When the pain upon this earth undoes your every belief
I’ll come running
When you want to soothe your soul or just let go of some grief
I’ll come running

Hear me when I say
Nothing gonna stand in my way
I don’t care what I gotta do
I’m a gonna get to you

If your prized possessions all get lost in the flood
I’ll come running
If you come home from the ball all covered in mud
I’ll come running
When your luck is running out and all the money is spent
I’ll come running
When you’re blinking your eyes
Wondering where all your friends went
I’ll come running

I’ll come running ‘cause this world can be cruel
Dumpin’ all its pressure on you
I’ll come running but if you tell me it’s cool
Don’t worry - I got plenty to do
Track Name: There Goes The Sun
There goes the sun and suddenly it's dusk
Sounds of laughter, smells of candlelight and musk
Got my Rumours on and gonna head right into Tusk
There goes the sun and suddenly it's dusk

There goes the dusk and suddenly it's night
Nighttime is the right time and I’m feeling alright
How could I not when we’re holding each other so tight?
There goes the dusk and suddenly it's night

Sun, sun, sun…there it goes
Where she's gone God knows
Moon, moon, moon…there she goes
Morning comes and how my love grows
My love grows, how my love grows

There goes the moon and suddenly it's day
Came so soon I have nothing left to say
Except that I’d like to love you each step of the way
There goes the moon and suddenly it's day

Beautiful day…
Track Name: All Kindza Yesss
When you look at me
When you dance with me
When you sing with me and romance with me

All kindza yesss

When you talk with me
When you move with me
When you walk with me
When you groove with me

All kindza yesss

We go walking down the boulevard
I’m drunk on you and falling hard
The city lights in silhouette
The best ain’t even happened yet

When you lay with me
When you’re deep with me
When you play with me
When you sleep with me

All kindza yesss
Track Name: I Begin And End With You
I begin and end with you
The morning sun shining through
Moon on the rise tells me true
I begin and end with you

In your arms I am a child
A thousand years in your eyes
I realize when you are near
There is nothing in this life to fear

I begin and end with you
The desert sky an endless blue
I drink the rain and all is new
I begin and end with you

And I can see the things you do
And I can feel the way you move
And I can be my highest self if I want to
If I choose to

I begin and end with you
The desert sky an endless view
And when I die I’ll know it’s true
I begin and I will end with you
Track Name: And The World Goes Round
Hawk of a man with a bill in his hand
Sucking all the good seed out of the land
You don’t need to read the feed to understand
And the world goes round
Chopping down trees in the dirty breeze
Dropping down a deep freeze overseas
He says, “Hey I’m the big cheese and I can do what I please.”
And the world goes round

And I’m in love with you pretty baby
Everything you do just drives me crazy
But then again look at you, how could you blame me?
I’m in love I’m in love
I’m in love and the beat is strong
I just want to move with you all night long
We could just groove right into the dawn
Baby come on baby come on
Come on

Peeping Tom with a CDRom
Learning how to make his own atomic bomb
Sheep don’t sleep just trying to keep calm
And the world goes round
Chat is at an all time high disgrace
A rat shouldn’t ever run the human race
We got a flat screen face trying to fatten the space
And the world goes round

You say the sun is a she
I must say indeed I do agree
Giving all the light she can
She’s too warm to be a man
You say the earth’s her sister
I want the men who’ve twisted her
She’ll still be coming around long after they’re all in the ground

Awed by the size of a baby’s eyes
She smiled at her daddy and he’s hypnotized
A universe of love he never realized
And the world goes round
Bigger than a name, bigger than the game
Bigger than the bang from which everything came
When we gonna realize we’re all the same
And the world goes round
Track Name: Anyone's Everything
Now I admit she might enjoy the way you’re doing the deed
And the wine is so fine but the damn reality
Is that she simply wasn’t sent here to be anyone’s everything

I know too well she want to go just shortly after she come
She lie awake and count the beats
That race from aching for the sun
And she slip out just before it’s up
So she don’t ever have to become
Anyone’s everything

Hey I’m sorry but she can’t be that to you
The one that make you happy your entire life through
I’m sorry - she can’t let you fence her in
No matter how intense this has been

I don’t deny she enjoyed all this time by the sea
And the dine is so fine but the damn reality
Is that she simply wasn’t sent here to be anyone’s everything
Track Name: The Deepest Part Of The Ocean
I wanna love you like the way the leaves turn red
I wanna love you like the way Billie Holliday said
I wanna love you ‘til eternity is through
I wanna love you ‘til we’re dead and born anew

You take me to the deepest part of the ocean
You wake me to the highest part of the sky
You shake me to the sweetest part of emotion and I cry

I’m gonna love you like the way the river flows
I’m gonna love you like the way the warm wind blows
I’m gonna love you in the way that brings the rain
I’m gonna love you in the way that heals the pain

You break me from the ugliness of distraction
You make me see the beauty in everything
You take me to the breath of my satisfaction and I sing

Shadows fading with the night
Smiles fill the morning light
I’m safe inside your tender touch
I never knew that I could feel so much
So much
Track Name: The Dream Is What It Is
Meet me by the water

The dream is what it is

I didn’t know, didn't know, didn't know, didn't know...

My God, it’s full of stars...

Meet me by the water
Track Name: This Is Monday Morning
This is Monday morning
This is Tuesday night
This is Wednesday afternoon
We’re all just trying to get it right
This is Thursday evening
Friday dusk, this much is true
Saturday and Sunday I just want to be with you

But this is Monday morning and you’re headed off to work
Still trying to understand why your boss is such a jerk
But who knows what he’s been through?
Who knows what he’s lost?
I’m guessing something heavy
‘Cause every Tuesday night he’s sauced down at the corner bar
In the gap between what we want to be
And what we really are
The joke is every day if we got out of our way
We could shine just like a star

Chorus

But this is Wednesday afternoon and you’re headed for the gym
My grandpa Jerome’s in the nursing home
And Thursday evenings I go see him
Friday it's a movie, maybe a ballgame or a show
Whatever you got in mind, sweetheart
You know I'm down to go
'Cause I don’t give a damn
In the gap between what I want to be
And what I really am
The joke is every night if I stepped into the light
I just might be the jam
But this is Monday morning

You know I’m just trying to live my life and enjoy it while I’m here
Every day of every week, every month of every year
Track Name: I Just Want To Be With You
Saturday and Sunday, I just want to be with you
But this is Monday morning
Track Name: Thanksgiving Day
Charlie Skin with one eye
Searchin’ through the trash for a tray every day
Finds his rare prize, cold and half-eaten
Someone else threw away yesterday
And he saw on the television
Looking through the window at The Mill last night
It’s gonna be cold for Christmas

Charlie sleeps down on Montague Street
All the people walk by, that look in their eye
Temperature’s dropping
And everyone’s shopping for their holiday time
All down the line
Charlie can’t feel his toes or his fingers
And he knows he ain’t long for the living
And it’s only Thanksgiving Day

Ain’t it every day I’m just looking away…

A woman rings a bell and people drop in their change
So out of range
Lukewarm soup pours for a group of folks off the street
With nothing to eat but their shoes
Charlie can’t walk to the curb
Let alone to the neighborhood kitchen
And all they ever do is bitch, bitch, bitch

Ain’t it every day I’m just looking away…

And somewhere better
There’s a really warm sweater and a giving tree
But all I think about is me, me, me

Ain’t it every day I’m just looking away…

Charile Skin, they brought him in on Christmas Day
They put him away
No real sin, no next of kin to identify him
Like he never had been...
Track Name: If I Ever Get To Heaven
If I ever get to heaven
This will be the weather
69 and sunny
A sky that goes forever
If I ever get to heaven
You will be my wife
And these will be our children with us for eternal life
And we will watch their children grow
And all go to a U2 show
I’ll get to hang with Bono while you chill with The Edge
‘Cause you still like him best

If I ever get to heaven
This is what I’ll eat
These dinners that you make me I swear cannot be beat
And if I ever get to heaven
This is what I’ll hear
Beatles, Joni, Zeppelin and Paul Simon in my ear
Of course I’ll need my Billy Joel
Prince’s funk and Stevie’s soul
The Good Lord knows I love my Rock and Roll above the rest
But I still like you best

Yeah I still like you best - I still like you best
After all this time it’s pretty clear that I’ve been blessed
‘Cause I still like you best

If I ever get to heaven
This is where I’ll be
Watching Cheers in bed here with you lying next to me
And if I ever get to heaven
You’ll call me by my name
I’ll heave a sigh to realize it’s pretty much the same
As all the time we’ve spent right here
The difference is there’ll be no fear
We’ll hang with George and Ringo
John and Paul and all the rest
But I’ll still like you best
I'll still like you best
I'll still like you best
