    Til I Am Myself Again
    3:59
    I want to know where my confidence went
    One day it all disappeared
    And I’m lying in a hotel room miles away
    Voices next door in my ear

    Daytime’s a drag, nighttime’s worse
    Hope that I can get home soon
    But the half-finished bottles of inspiration
    Lie like ghosts in my room

    I want to go
    I know I can’t stay
    But I don’t want to run
    Feeling this way
    Til I am myself
    Til I am myself
    Til I am myself again

    There’s a seat on the corner I keep every night
    Wait til the evening begins
    I feel like a stranger from another world
    But at least I’m living again

    There are nights full of anger
    Words that are thrown
    Tempers that are shattered and thin
    And the moments of magic, are just too short
    They’re over before they begin

    I know it’s time
    One big step
    I can’t go
    I’m not ready yet
    Til I am myself
    Til I am myself
    Til I am myself again

    I had a dream that my house was on fire
    People laughed while it burned
    I tried to run but my legs were numb
    I had to wait til the feeling returned

    I don’t need a doctor to figure it out
    I know what’s passing me by
    When I look in the mirror
    Sometimes I see traces of some other guy

    I want to go I know I can’t stay
    But I don’t want to run
    Feeling this way
    Til I am myself
    Til I am myself
    Til I am myself again

    What Am I Doing Here
    3:09
    On this useless night
    With you so far away
    I stand in front of this ferris wheel

    And I wonder what am I doing here
    And I wonder what am I doing here

    And all the drunks just stumble by
    And mumble their abuse
    Tell me what is the use

    And I wonder what am I doing here
    And I wonder what am I doing here

    After so long nobody’s wrong
    After so long nobody’s right
    After so long nobody’s wrong
    After so long nobody’s right

    On this useless night
    With you so far away
    I stand in front of this ferris wheel

    And I wonder what am I doing here
    And I wonder what am I doing here
    And I wonder what am I doing here

    5 AM (A Love Song)
    4:01
    With every breath we grow further apart
    Sometimes I wish we didn’t know how to talk
    And as we sort out the who said you said
    Who said I said
    I only wish I came a little better prepared

    5 am, these things will pass
    Tomorrow won’t be our last
    Funny how I’m always here with you
    I never meant to change your world
    Or change your point of view
    I only want to hold you when I feel a little blue
    I hope you know I’ll always be there for you

    I know by now I should be sound asleep
    But my mind won’t let me it feels like it’s going to explode
    I’ll say that you’re right
    If you just say that I’m right
    Let’s hit the hay and call this case closed

    5 am things get so strange
    Tomorrow’s a brand new day
    Funny how I’m always here with you
    I never meant to change your world
    Or change your point of view
    I only want to hold you when I feel a little blue
    I hope you know I’ll always be there for you

    Montreal
    3:17
    We met in Montreal
    Far from the crime
    Moving in circles
    Running with so little time
    Sat and we talked
    About rumours and lies
    Stayed til the sun hit the floor

    You wore the dress
    From the old market stall
    People and places
    Said you were forgetting them all
    I don’t know if I
    Believed you or not
    As I stared at you outside your door

    Those were the times
    That was our life
    I probably couldn’t change
    One little thing if I tried
    Moments together mapped out
    Like the stars in the sky
    Now you’re in the things that I do
    Still I miss talking to you

    Late in your bed
    You said don’t you be sad
    Think of how lucky we are
    For the things that we’ve had
    Life that’s around me I’m letting it go
    But you stay up here in my head

    Those were the times
    That was our life
    I probably wouldn’t change
    One little thing if I tried
    Moments together mapped out
    Like the stars in the sky
    Now you’re in the things that I do
    Still I miss talking to you

    Last Laugh
    4:02
    I should have seen through it but you were so intent
    The nervous breakdown on an overworked bed
    You couldn’t wait to get over the edge
    You were drunk on the silver
    When he took your crown
    He took from you everything that wasn’t tied down
    You said he was an angel
    With the chains of gold
    Too bad they weren’t strong enough to hold

    The clock of world is just a dream
    Still I shouldn’t be jealous of the ones who lay flowers at your feet
    Yeah my desire has finally put you out of reach
    You were drunk on the silver
    When he took your crown
    He took from you everything that wasn’t tied down
    You said he was an angel
    With the chains of gold
    Too bad they weren’t strong enough to hold

    Now all your saviours wait their turn in line
    While you sit in the corner
    And drink yourself blind
    The last laugh has finally been had
    But it’s not what you think
    The last laugh has finally been had
    And it don’t taste so sweet
    Now you’re finally on your own
    Last thing he said to you was see you around

    You were drunk on the silver
    You were drunk on the silver
    You were drunk on the silver
    Now you’re going to leave me with the last laugh

    Trust Yourself
    3:49
    Someday soon
    I don’t know when
    Your little world
    Will come crashing in
    Don’t think twice
    I’ll be around
    Turn your back
    Someone’s gonna let you down

    You know that it’s true
    Nobody led you on
    They left that to you
    Now you’ll be alone
    When the sun comes up
    With your tattered little dreams
    And a broken cup
    Then you’ll have to
    Trust yourself
    And don’t believe in anymore lies

    You waste your time
    Think too much
    Really make a mess
    Of the things you touch
    Poor little bird
    With a broken wing
    Better look around now
    You know you’re losing everything
    It’s just a game
    Thought you had it all lined up
    But somehow that’s changed

    Now you’ll have to run
    And not get caught
    And you’ll have to hide
    If you like it or not
    Then you’ll have to
    Trust yourself
    And don’t believe in anymore lies

    Someday soon
    And it won’t be long
    You’ll ring the bell
    But they’ll all be gone
    They took your jewels
    And your statues too
    Left you with a pile of things
    You never learned how to use

    Here it comes again
    You showed us where it all began
    Well here’s where it ends
    And you’ll be alone
    When the sun comes up
    Tattered little dreams
    And a broken cup
    Then you’ll have to trust yourself
    And don’t believe in anymore
    Trust yourself
    And don’t believe in anymore
    Trust yourself
    And don’t believe in anymore lies

    Two Tongues
    4:24
    If you have the Midas touch
    Why does everything around here look like rust
    And if your house is in such perfect order
    Why are your kids running around in rags from second hand counters

    Yeah tell me why
    Yeah you tell me why
    Is it because you got two tongues in one head
    You can change your words in mid-direction

    You’re a freaked out flathead hollow-eyed bad hallucination
    Useless prayers from obedient lips
    Life’s too good in the house of the privileged

    Yeah tell me why
    Yeah you tell me why
    Is it because you have two tongues in one head
    Tell me why
    Yeah you tell me why

    Is it because you have two tongues in one head
    Is it because you have two tongues in one head

    Time
    3:37
    An endless chain of days go by
    Can’t scratch the surface still I try
    I’m going down feeling underground
    Just kicking the leaves all around this town

    Can’t catch the beat I’m feeling ill
    Too much time to kill
    Time time time
    Time to kill

    Follow the footsteps down the stairs
    Painted doorway dirty rails
    Take a ride on the evening blue
    Gonna check out the crowds on Mott Avenue

    Gonna watch the waves on Jamaica Bay
    Far Rockaway
    Time time time
    Time to kill

    Time…

    After The Rain
    4:25
    If I had my way
    I would never go back
    With my back to the wall
    I just let myself fall
    Watch the days turn black
    But now and again I find
    You cross my mind

    If I was a train
    I would never slow down
    With my head in the sky
    And the world going by
    Every nowhere town
    As I write one more letter to you
    I know I can’t change the things that I do

    One day
    You will discover
    Just why I ran
    Ran away from you lover
    I know I’m to blame
    I feel so ashamed
    Call out your name
    After the rain

    What do you want me to do
    I’ve thrown away everything for you
    I’ve wasted my dreams
    Each day it seems
    I’m losing my way back to you

    It’s time for a change
    What else can I do
    The clock ticking time
    I better make up my mind
    Is it me or is it you
    Tonight as I’m losing control
    I will drink to the queen of my soul

    One day
    You will discover
    Just why I ran
    Ran away from you lover
    I know I’m to blame
    I feel so ashamed
    Call out your name
    After the rain

    You're Everywhere
    2:52
    I gave you my heart and I gave you my soul
    That’s not enough you want more
    Like the writing on an ancient wall
    You’re a mystery that I’ll never solve

    Yeah you’re everywhere
    Yeah you’re everywhere
    Yeah you’re everywhere
    but you’re just not there for me

    Yea I’ve walked along the red canal of mars
    I’ve known kings and king makers
    Poets painters and paupers
    I’ve danced on the rings of Saturn

    Still your pilgrim soul is the only thing that ever mattered

    Yeah you’re everywhere
    Yeah you’re everywhere
    Yeah you’re everywhere
    But you’re just not there for me

    This old world ain’t always what it seems
    Sometimes I feel I’m living in someone else’s dream
    There’s a face I know that I’ve never seen
    Still one hundred million miles

    Ten thousand years
    Won’t change a thing

    Yeah you’re everywhere
    Yeah you’re everywhere
    Yeah you’re everywhere
    But you’re just not there for me
