5 Days In May
9:04
They met in a hurricane
Standing in the shelter out of the rain
She tucked a note into his hand
Later on they took his car
Drove on down where the beaches are
He wrote her name in the sand
Never even let go of her hand

Somehow they stayed that way
For those five days in May
Made all the stars around them shine
Funny how you can look in vain
Living on nerves and such sweet pain
The loneliness that cuts so fine
To find the face you've seen a thousand times

Sometimes the world begins
To set you up on your feet again
It wipes the tears from your eyes
How will you ever know
The way that circumstances go
Always going to hit you by surprise
I know my past
You were there
In everything I've done
You are the one

Looking back it's hard to tell
Why they stood while others fell
Spend your life working it out
All I know is one cloudy day
They both just ran away
Rain on the windshield heading South
She loved the lines around his mouth

Sometimes the world begins
To set you up on your feet again
It wipes the tears from your eyes
How will you ever know
The way that circumstances go
Always going to hit you by surprise
I know my past
You were there
In everything
I've done
You are the one

Crying Over You

Rebel
Out on the streets every night
Going out of my head
Caught in a midnight parade
That I wish I wasn't in

Running away with nowhere to hide
Caught in a world just four lanes wide
Everyone thinks of themselves
But I'm thinking of you

And it's all for a rebel
And it's all for a rebel
Rebel rebel

Spent last night falling in love
With a girl in room five
People round here are different
We lead desperate lives

Same sun rising over your head
Is catching me wasted worn-out and dead
Everyone watches themselves
But I'm watching you

And it's all for a rebel
And it's all for a rebel
Rebel rebel

Out on the streets every night
Going out of my head
Caught in a midnight parade
That I wish I wasn't in

Same sun rising over your head
Is catching me wasted worn-out and dead
Everyone watches themselves
But I'm watching you

And it's all for a rebel
And it's all for a rebel
Rebel rebel rebel

Blue House
3:15
Sometimes I drive by our old blue house
When I wake up calling your name
It's been years since you were my one true love
But that old house still looks the same

I dreamt you were an iceberg
And I was the Arctic sea
And I held you but you held back from me
Yeah I held you but you held back from me

When I drive by that cold blue house
The car out front looks strange
In every room the lights turn on and off
But all I see is how this world will never change

I dreamt I was the Sahara
And you were the desert tree
The sun beat down on both our backs
And you turned yours on me
The sun beat down on both our backs
And you turned yours on me

Sometimes I drive by our old blue house
When I wake up calling your name
It's been years since you were my one true love
But that old house still looks the same

I dreamt we were a ride at the fair
A wheel that spun on the ground
And even though we got nowhere
We still reached for the stars and the clouds
We still reached for the stars and the clouds

And I held you but you held back from me
Yeah I held you but you held back from me
Yeah I held you but you held back from me

3 Hours Away
3:53
Can't get used to what you told me You said better brace yourself
There's changes coming in I wake up to a brand-new story
Stop the clock that's ticking on the shelf
Then let it all begin

Now I know that I'm right here where I was before
Chasing all my ghosts around
Maybe I worry what I will say
Now I'm only 3 hours away

Living in between the pages
Watching the strangers come and go Just life that's passing by
It all keeps coming down in stages
Only hurts the ones you know No matter what you try

Now I know that I'm right here where I was before
Chasing songs from town to town
Maybe I worry what I will say
Now I'm only 3 hours away

Some things aren't meant to last
Like a day that burns up fast
Turn away and then it's gone

Sun comes the red sky morning
I pray that the trouble all has passed
Just something that I dreamed I must have missed all of your warnings
I guess we played too fast Much closer than it seemed

Now I know that I'm right here where I was before
Making all my plans alone
Maybe I worry what I will say Now I'm only 3 hours away
Maybe I worry what I will say Now I'm only 3 hours away

Try
3:38
Don't tell me I'm wrong
Cause I've been watching every move that you make
Hearts you steal, when you're made-up and heels
Trouble for the man that you take
Every time you walk in the room
I couldn't ever be sure of a smile
You were never the same way twice
I'm falling in love
Oh, night after night, oh it's crazy, ooh
So many people who said, ooh
Girl you've got nothing but time
Oh you are a shining star
Don't you worry 'bout what you're leaving behind.
Every time you walk in the room
I couldn't ever be sure of a smile
You were never the same way twice
I'm falling in love
Oh, night after night, oh it's crazy
Oh you got to try, try, try
Ah don't you know you've got to try
Try, try, ooh
Oh baby you try, oh
Every time you walk in the room
I couldn't ever be sure of a smile
You were never the same way twice
I'm falling in love
Oh, night after night, oh it's crazy
Oh you got to try, try, try
Ah don't you know you've got to try
Try, try
Ooh oh baby you try, oh whoa whoa try, oh whoa whoa

Know Where You Go
5:06
Nothing can compare
To how I feel
When I'm by your side
And nothing can compare
To the world I see in your eyes

'Cause I know where you go
Love how you know
How to take me there
Yea I know where you go
Love how you know
How to take me there

You fill my head
With colours
Of wonder and delight
You move across my mind
Like the dance
Of the Northern Lights

'Cause I know where you go
Love how you know
How to take me there
Yea I know where you go
Love how you know
How to take me there

Tell Me Your Dream
2:38
As we sat in front of that August moon
You said ‘the clouds they look like angel wings'
Sometimes I wonder if you can read my mind
‘Cause I was thinking the very same thing

When I'm with you all the stars shine through
My heart opens up like a morning flower
You know I'd leave it all behind
‘Cause my only peace of mind
Is when I'm here with you

So tell me your dream
Lay your head on my pillow
Tell me the things that you hide away
Your pain
Your pleasure
Your sorrow

Tell me the things that you hide away
Your pain
Your pleasure
Your sorrow

Bad Timing
4:58
Hey it's me what a big surprise
Calling you up from a restaurant
Around the bend
I just got in from way up North
I'm aching tired now
And I could use a friend
I might be a fool
To think that you do
Want to see me again

It's been awhile since I talked to you
Nothing wrong
Just nothing ever goes as planned
Many times I thought I'd call
I didn't have your number in my hand
I know it's true
You'd never do
The same thing to me

I never meant to make you cry
And though I know I shouldn't call
It just reminds us of the cost
Of everything we've lost
Bad timing that's all

Maybe soon there'll come a day
When no more tears will fall
If we each forgive a little bit
And we both look back on it
As just bad timing that's all

We used to have so many plans
Something always seemed to turn out wrong
I never could catch up to you
Moving on and doing what you've done
I don't know why
The harder I try
The harder it comes

I never meant to make you cry
And though I know I shouldn't call
It just reminds us of the cost
Of everything we've lost
Bad timing that's all

Maybe soon there'll come a day
When no more tears will fall
If we each forgive a little bit
When we both look back on it
Just bad timing that's all
