    To Love Somebody
    5:48
    There’s a light
    A certain kind of light
    That never shone on me
    I want my life to be lived with you

    Lived with you
    There’s a way everybody say
    To do each and every little thing
    But what does it bring
    If I ain’t got you, ain’t got?

    You don’t know what it’s like, baby
    You don’t know what it’s like

    To love somebody
    To love somebody
    To love somebody
    The way I love you

    In my brain
    I see your face again
    I know my frame of mind
    You ain’t got to be so blind
    And I’m blind, so very blind

    I’m a man, can’t you see
    What I am
    I live and breathe for you
    But what good does it do
    If I ain’t got you, ain’t got ?

    Rose-Coloured Glasses
    4:28
    She sees the world through rose-coloured glasses
    Painted skies and graceful romances
    I see a world that’s tired and scared
    Of living on the edge too long
    Where does she get off telling me
    That love could save us all
    Save us all

    She takes my hand and leads me to nowhere town
    No matter where I stand it’s always neutral ground
    And in the cool of the evening blue
    I feel so tired and alone
    Where does she get off telling me
    That love could save us all
    Save us all

    And it’s day after day
    I keep hanging around can you tell me why
    Night after night I know I should leave
    But there’s something in those eyes
    That keeps me hanging on I’m hypnotised
    It breaks my heart and I don’t know why
    Tell me why, tell me why

    She sees the world through rose-coloured glasses
    Painted skies and graceful romances
    See a world that’s tired and scared
    Of living on the edge too long
    Where does she get off telling me
    That love could save us all

    And it’s day after day
    I keep hanging around can you tell me why
    Night after night yeah
    I know I should leave
    But there’s something

    Day after day after day after day
    And I don’t know
    Day after day after day after day
    And I don’t know why

    Try
    4:00
    Don’t tell me I’m wrong
    Cause I’ve been watching every move that you make
    Hearts you steal with your make-up and heels
    Trouble for the men that you take

    Every time you walk in the room
    I couldn’t even be sure of a smile
    You were never the same way twice
    But I’m falling in love

    Night after night – oh it’s crazy

    So many people who said
    Girl you’ve got nothing but time
    Oh you are a shining star
    Don’t you worry about what you’re leaving behind

    Every time you walk in the room
    I couldn’t even be sure of a smile
    You were never the same way twice
    But I’m falling in love

    Night after night – oh it’s crazy
    Oh you got to try try try
    Don’t you know you’ve got to try try try
    Oh baby you try

    Every time you walk in the room
    I couldn’t even be sure of a smile
    You were never the same way twice
    I’m falling in love

    Night after night – oh it’s crazy
    Oh you got to try try try
    Don’t you know you’ve got to try try try
    Oh baby you try

    Diamond Mine
    8:08
    You say the party’s over
    But like a drunken fool
    I never know when to leave
    It’s just that in the eyes of this beholder
    You mean everything to me

    You say you don’t love me
    You talk about the other boys
    And you laugh in my face
    But I know when you’re feeling sad and lonely
    No other boy can take my place

    ‘Cause when I look into your eyes
    Our love shines
    Our love shines
    Like a diamond mine

    Nothing’s as obvious as what is lost
    Nothings’ as painful as the cost
    So let it shine
    Let it shine

    And I hear all these rumours about you
    Yea the trash lines up at my door just to bring me the news
    But all it does is make me kind of wonder
    Why are people so eager to be so cruel

    ‘Cause when I look into your eyes
    Our love shines
    Our love shines
    Our love shines
    Like a diamond mine

    Til I Am Myself Again
    4:00
    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

    Trust Yourself
    3:34
    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

    Lost Together
    5:14
    Strange and beautiful
    Are the stars tonight
    That dance around your head
    In your eyes I see that perfect world
    I hope that doesn’t sound too weird

    And I want all the world to know
    That your love’s all I need
    All that I need
    And if we’re lost
    Then we are lost together
    Yea if we’re lost
    Then we are lost together

    I stand before this faceless crowd
    And I wonder why I bother
    So much controlled by so few
    Stumbling from one disaster to another

    I’ve heard it all so many times before
    It’s all a dream to me now
    A dream to me now
    And if we’re lost
    Then we are lost together
    Yea if we’re lost
    Then we are lost together

    In the silence of this whispered night
    I listen only to your breath
    And that second of a shooting star
    Somehow it all makes sense

    And I want all the world to know
    That your love’s all I need
    All that I need
    And if we’re lost
    Then we are lost together
    Yea if we’re lost
    Then we are lost together

    5 Days In May
    7:10
    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 5 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

    Hasn't Hit Me Yet
    5:11
    You say that you’re leaving
    Well that comes as no surprise
    Still I kinda like this feeling
    Of being left behind

    Yea this ain’t nothing new to me
    Well it’s just like going home
    It’s kinda like those sunsets
    That leave you feeling so stoned

    Hey hey I guess it hasn’t hit me yet
    I fell through this crack
    And I kinda lost my head
    I stand transfixed
    Before this streetlight
    Watching the snow fall
    On this cold December night

    I never thought this could happen
    But somehow the feeling is gone
    You got sick of the patterns
    And I got lost in this song

    Hey hey I guess it hasn’t hit me yet
    I fell through this crack
    And I kinda lost my head
    I stand transfixed
    Before this streetlight
    Watching the snow fall
    On this cold December night

    Hey hey I guess it hasn’t hit me yet
    I fell through this crack
    And I kinda lost my head
    I stand transfixed
    Before this streetlight
    Watching the snow fall
    On this cold December night

    And out in the middle of Lake Ontario
    The same snow is falling
    On the deep silent water
    The great dark wonder
    Into the waves of my heart
    Into the waves of my heart

    Of my heart

    Bad Timing
    5:03
    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

    Dark Angel
    5:18
    I met this girl
    She’s walking through one of my dreams
    She kissed my eyes
    And everything that she said
    Made so much sense to me
    That I still feel like I’m half asleep

    My dark angel
    She gave me diamonds for eyes
    She walked by
    Now I’m hypnotised
    By this dream
    That just won’t stop
    And I feel
    Like I’ve always been lost in this dream

    The rumours of heaven
    Only speed the truth on earth
    My dark angel
    Shine your light on my curse
    You are the other that I have to find
    Until I do
    I guess I’ll see you ’round my mind

    So Colorado
    Is a place I have to go
    I heard a rumour
    She loves the mountains and the snow
    My dark angel
    She gave me diamonds for eyes
    My dark angel
    I offer you my heart
    My dark angel I think I loved you from the start

    ‘Cause there is this face I know
    That I’ve never seen
    Sometimes I feel I’m living in
    Someone else’s dream
    Still I’d like to thank you
    For stopping to talk
    And I wonder
    Just into who’s dream did who walk
    Oh my dark angel
    Shine your light on me
    Shine your light
    Shine your light
    Shine your light on me

    Side Of The Road
    6:05
    I pulled over to the side of the road
    I was feeling kind of sad
    I was feeling kind of blue
    I walked across this farmer’s field
    And I looked up to the blue-white sky

    And your eyes they were in my mind
    And I just want to hold on to you
    Yeah your eyes they were in my mind
    And I just want to hold on to you

    I started singing this song in my head
    Just because the sun was high shining bright
    And I could smell the fresh cut grass
    As I looked up to the blue-white sky

    And your eyes they were in my mind
    And I just want to hold on to you
    Yeah your eyes they were in my mind
    And I just want to hold on to you
    I’m gonna hold on to you

    I walked across this farmer’s field
    And I looked up into the blue-white sky
    I started singing this song in my head
    Just because the sun was high

    And your eyes they were in my mind
    And I just want to hold on to you
    Yeah your eyes they were in my mind
    And I just want to hold on to you
    I’m gonna hold on to you

    I’m gonna hold on to you to you

    It Could Happen To You
    4:35
    They broke off the locks and they opened the doors
    Fixed up the windows and painted the floors
    Grew a little garden outside in the rust and sand
    Raised up the roof till it touched the sky
    Picked up the pieces that were left to die
    Brought this building back with a healing hand

    When you see trouble
    You’re bound to move in on the double
    You leave your mark upon everything
    In your head those Liberty Bells still ring
    But we know that you don’t even mean
    A thing you say

    So you brought in the army to do your job
    Kicking in doors and swinging their clubs
    Back in the morning to watch themselves on the news
    You’re doing the bidding of the money man
    If it turns out right they’ll call you friend
    One little favour how could you really refuse?

    Oh my heart is sinking
    Same old useless worn out thinking
    You live your life in the court of kings
    Bow to the ruler and kiss the ring
    But we don’t even understand a thing you say

    It could happen to you
    It could happen to you
    It could happen to you sometime
    When you least expect it
    Done by the ones that you never suspected
    All your bills come due
    It could happen to you

    You really got to wonder why you did it for
    Cause you don’t need an army
    To move out the poor
    You brought it out once I know
    You could bring it again

    Oh my heart is sinking
    Same old useless worn out thinking
    Live your life in the court of kings
    Count your money as the Raven sings
    Safe and sound when the wrecking ball swings
    But all your riches won’t mean a thing someday

    It could happen to you
    It could happen to you
    It could happen to you

    After The Rain
    6:43
    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
