Track Name: Something About You
There's a distance between you and me
Always been there and always will be
Until we learn to act naturally
And let all our fears of each other go free

You know something about me
And I know something about you
I see through all the love
That you try to hide

We both dance around things we should say
Always let the words get in our way
Never asking each other to stay
When we feel like turning and running away

You know something about me
And I know something about you
I see through all the love
That you try to hide

All the times when you felt all alone
Like there's no-one else you could run to
All you had to do was open your eyes
And you'd see I was always there looking for you

We're both frightened of what we might find
If we open our hearts and our minds
So we left all our feelings behind us
And now we're here feeling deaf, dumb and blind

I know something about you
And you know something about me
You see through all the love
That I try to hide

And you know something about me
And I know something about you
I see through all the love
That you try to hide inside
Track Name: The Town at the End of the World
On the corner of Hope and Forsaken Streets
There's a house where a little girl lives
She's been waiting alone for her dad to come home
And make good on the promise he gives

But he's busy downtown on Besotted Street
In a tavern he visits each day
He's been drowning his sins in tequila and gin
While the whole world just washes away

And he feels alone
And he doesn't know
Why he can't control his own life any more
So he runs away
And he comes to stay
Where he feels at home
in the town at the end of the world

His mind is lost on Anguish Avenue
As he summons his strength not to cry
While his girl is alone when he doesn't come home
And she still doesn't understand why

That he feels alone
And he doesn't know
Why he can't control his own life any more
So he runs away
And he comes to stay
Where he feels at home
in the town at the end of the world

He thinks the best of his life has gone by
But all the things worth living for
Are in front of his eyes

And over the hill on Nostalgia Way
There's a woman that he used to love
She is wondering how he is doing right now
And if she's someone he's thinking of

And she feels alone
And she doesn't know
Why she can't control her own life any more
So she runs away
And she comes to stay
Where she feels at home
in the town at the end of the world
Track Name: Dance With Me
Dance with me
Why don’t you dance with me
Come on and dance with me right now
It's a beautiful night and the time is right
and I'm ready to show you how
Take my hand and listen to the band
because they got it goin' on real loud
They're playin' our song, let’s sing along
and have another dance right now

If you wanna dance with me
Get up and move your feet
Sway like a willow tree, swing to the groovy beat
Jump like a little flea, the evening won't be complete
Until you have another dance with me

Dance with me
Why don’t you dance with me
Come out and dance with me tonight
The music is playing, everybody is swaying
Outside in the pale moonlight
Hold me closer and don’t say “no, sir”
And everything will be all right
Whatcha waitin' for? Let's hit the floor
and together we can dance all night

If you wanna dance with me
Get up and move your feet
Sway like a willow tree, swing to the groovy beat
Jump like a little flea, the evening won't be complete
Until you have another dance with me

I'm sliding on my knees
Begging you darlin' please
If you wanna be through with me
I hereby set you free
But before you take your leave
I have a request of thee
Have another dance with me

Dance with me
Why don’t you dance with me
Come on and dance with me right now
It's a beautiful night and the time is right
and I'm ready to show you how
Take my hand and listen to the band
because they got it goin' on real loud
They're playin' our song, let’s sing along
and have another dance right now

If you wanna dance with me
Get up and move your feet
Sway like a willow tree, swing to the groovy beat
Jump like a little flea, the evening won't be complete
Until you have another dance with me
Have another dance with me
Spin like a 33
Hula with the ukulele
Have another dance with me!
Track Name: Miss Mischief
There is something in your eyes
A blue that I've only seen in skies
A wickedness that hides the lies you say

But there is something you should know
I'm on to all of the tricks you show
I won't be swayed by the curves you throw my way

Because I know when I see you smile
I'm just some other guy you're trying to beguile
Miss Mischief

There's something in the way you play with words
You say the sweetest things I've ever heard
But I am wiser now, I won't be lured away

Because I know when you're calling my name
It's just another way you're playing your game
Miss Mischief

You're the kinda girl I fell for all of my life
But you're not the kinda girl I'd ever want for a wife
You'll make someone a HELL of a wife!

There's something in the way you sing and dance
That puts the younger boys into a trance
But I am way too old to take a chance on you

Because I know when you're looking at me
It's just some other poor sucker you see
Miss Mischief

[Whistling]

Because I know when you promise me love
There's always someone else you're thinking of
Miss Mischief
Track Name: Honey Wine
I'm sitting here under a shady tree
Listening to the wind blow
You might think just from looking at me
That I move a little slow
But don't believe everything that you see
Because you never really know
I'm just waiting for you to catch up with me
And I got nowhere to go

I think I'm doing pretty fine
I'm finally feeling okay
There's nothing left of me inside
I've put all my worries away
I'm happy here just wasting time
Just sitting around all day
I'm drinking all your honey wine
I think I'll have a little more

If you want to find a place that's worry free
Well then you know just where to go
Just sit right down here next to me
Where the tall grass grows
We'll take our cue from the birds and the bees
They seem to really know
I'll play you a song on my ukulele
And this is how it goes

I think I'm doing pretty fine
I'm finally feeling okay
There's nothing left of me inside
I've put all my worries away
I'm happy with just wasting time
Just sitting around all day
I'm drinking all your honey wine
I think I'll have a little more

Whoa oh whoa oh

I’m happy just wastin’ a little time with you
Just sitting ‘round all day
I’m drinking all your honey wine
I think I’ll have a little more
I’m happy, you happy, drinking wine
Honey wine
Track Name: Hold On To Me
I know life ain't easy and I know love is hard
There's always somebody tryin' to tear us apart
But if you are steadfast and patient and true
I probably might stay with you

Hold on to me, hold on to me
When the goin' gets rough
You gotta get rough with me
Hold on to me, hold on to me
When I start runnin'
Hold on to me

I know that you love me in spite of my ways
I drink and I gamble, I go missing for days
There's always somebody else turning my head
But it’s cheaper to stay here instead

Hold on to me, hold on to me
When the goin' gets rough
You gotta get rough with me
Hold on to me, hold on to me
When I start runnin'
Hold on to me

I know I'm not a good man
But I'm doin' the best that I can
I know that I don't treat you right
But if you want me to change
Maybe someday I might

I know you're a woman of tolerant nerve
You're better to me than I prob'ly deserve
If you ever leave me I'll sing a sad song
Until somebody new comes along

Hold on to me, hold on to me
When the goin' gets tough
Come on and get tough with me
Hold on to me, hold on to me
When I start runnin'
Hold on to me
When I start runnin'
Hold on to me
Track Name: The Ocean Song
Hear the ocean wind
Here it comes again
You know it feels right
So let the sunlight in

Your arms are open wide
Embrace the rising tide
It washes over all you hold inside

Feel the motion
Of the ocean waves
They call for you
Let them take you
Far away where
You can start anew
Don't let them break you down
Like you always do

Won't you come with me
We'll sail across the sea
Set adrift on a ship of harmony

Feel the motion
Of the ocean waves
They take us home
Stars above us
Guide us to a place
We can call our own
A place where we won't ever
Have to be alone

A place where we won't ever
Have to feel alone
Track Name: The Cliche Song
Wherever you go
The truth isn't told by the few who know
And what you believe
Can make you smart or seem naive
Put your trust in the words I said so long ago
Back when I told you I love you so

A change is good as a holiday
I think it's safe to say
I know it sounds like a big cliché
You're the girl of my dreams
My good and my bad dreams
Clichéd as it may seem

What can I say, I swear I’ll say it to you every day
Whatever I do, good enough isn’t good for you
I’m trying to get back to the place I was so long ago
Back when you knew how I need you so

A change is good as a holiday
I think it's safe to say
I know it sounds like a big cliché
You're the girl of my dreams
My good and my bad dreams
Clichéd as it may seem

The more things change
The more I stay the same
I'm tired of playing the same old game

A change is good as a holiday
I think it's safe to say
I know it sounds like a big cliché
You're the girl of my dreams
My good and my bad dreams
Clichéd as it may seem
Track Name: Slow Down
Everybody's always running around
They all got somewhere else to be
You should put your feet back on the ground
Stop and spend some time with me
And so I'm begging please

Slow down

I've been trying to get a hold of you
But you always move so fast
I'm finding it hard just to keep up with you
Moving at such a speed won't last
So that's why I say

Slow down

And every time I try
To see you face to face
The picture's always out of focus
Because you're moving at such a crazy pace

Everybody's always running around
They all got somewhere else to be
I wish you'd put your feet back on the ground
Stop here and spend some time with me
And so I beg and plead

Slow down
Track Name: Fear
I always want what I haven't got
and now that's quite a lot of noise and silly toys
and things that keep me far away

And I never gave much thought
but now I see it's not a thing that I can sing about
without it coming out, so...

You're all that I ever wanted
I come to you undaunted by the fear of you
I still hold right here in my heart
You're all that I ever needed
I finally conceded to let you in to me again
like I did at the start

We've been here for so long it started to feel wrong
and so I let you know that I was going to run away

But you, you wouldn't let me go
and so I want to show you how I'm staying now
and trying to love you more today, because...

You're all that I ever wanted
I come to you undaunted by the fear of you
I still hold right here in my heart
You're all that I ever needed
I finally conceded to let you in to me again
like I did at the start

And all the things I thought were right
about the things that we would fight about
were not alright when I was walking out the door

You hold my heart in your hands
and so of course it stands to reason
you would please and understand me
when I needed you most

You're all that I ever wanted
I come to you undaunted by the fear of you
I still hold right here in my heart
You're all that I ever needed
I finally conceded to let you in to me again
like I did at the start
Track Name: Anniversary Song
You belong with me
That’s a fact that’s been proven repeatedly
Through the years between you and me

You’re so good to me
The way you lie beside me through adversity
And that’s the way it ought to be

Walking hand in hand
Through this life that we had planned
And that’s what makes today a special day

Our anniversary
That’s the day we celebrate
Anniversary
Remembering when you gave yourself to me

You’re a mystery
The way you move improves with age and history
You know you still appeal to me

Walking hand in hand
Through this life that we had planned
And that’s what makes today a special day

Our anniversary
That’s the day we celebrate
Anniversary
Remembering when you gave yourself to me

The girl that I adored
Has grown up into so much more
And every year I love you more than before

Our anniversary
That’s the day we celebrate
Anniversary
All the love you give to me
Anniversary
You fill me with the memory
Anniversary
Remembering when you gave yourself to me
Track Name: My Love
Where is the love that I want
Where is the life that was promised me
Where is the home that I've seen
There on the shores of my lonely dreams
And when you see me carrying
The weight of the world
Shoulder the burden a while with me
Lay down and curl up beside me

Where is the fortune I lost
When will it come around again
Why do I still pay the cost
Why do I take it on the chin
And when you hear me call your name
All over the world
Turn around and come on home

My love is more than you bargained for
My love is yours to have or to ignore
When you walk through the door
I'll be waiting for you with a promise of
A day when you can have my love

Where is the sound of your heart
When will I hear it beat again
Why did you run so far
Just to escape a little sin
And when you hear me spreading the word
All over the world
I'm calling you to come back home

When you went so far away, so long ago
you left me holding on to a life I could not let go

Where is the end of the road
When is it time to go to sleep
When will the ocean flow
Pull me out of the lonely deep
And when you see me sailing towards
The end of the world
Then you'll know I'm going home

My love is more than you bargained for
My love is yours to have or to ignore
When you walk through the door
I'll be waiting for you with a promise of
A day when you can have my love
A chance for us to finally live
with all the love I had to give before
Before you walked out the door
(My love is more)
You're the one I'm waiting for
(My love is yours)
You're mine forever more
(My love is more)
(My love is yours)
Track Name: Madeline
He believed she was a gift sent from above
She was the kind of girl that he'd been dreaming of
He knew that he was bound to fall in love
with Madeline

They lived together so in love for several years
Until the day she wrote a note and disappeared
He read the words she wrote and shed a tear
for Madeline

And he cried-

I'll wait for you 'til the end of time, Madeline
Please won't you just give me a sign, Madeline
Let me know if you're still mine, Madeline

He never understood just why she had to go
What did he do to make her want to hurt him so
He could fill an ocean with the things he didn't know
about Madeline

And he cried-

I'll wait for you 'til the end of time, Madeline
Please won't you just give me a sign, Madeline
Let me know if you're still mine, Madeline

The love that you give away
Comes back to you someday
So have the faith to say what's on your mind

Take care in the things you do
It’ll all come back to you
If you see it through it'll be all right

Fall on your knees and pray
That she'll come back some day
And you might hear her say she'll stay this time

She's the one for you
You tell yourself it's true
And try to hold on to that lonely lie

It always ends the same
There's no-one left to blame
So you call her name
O, Madeline

He left his home in search of another way
To find the girl who long ago had gone astray
Then one day to his house a letter came
from Madeline

And it read-

"I'll be home soon on the number 9, love of mine. You have always been on my mind.
I hope we're fine. See you soon. I love you.
Signed,
Madeline."

And he cried-

I'll wait for you 'til the end of time, Madeline
Please won't you just give me a sign, Madeline
Let me know if you're still mine, Madeline

My Madeline
