Track Name: Trees
I, I wanna live on the land
I, I wanna make my clothes by hand
I, I wanna plant a garden green
And watch the seasons
The seasons change
Up in the trees

I, I wanna feed my chickens grain
And, and hear my dog barking in the lane
I, I wanna eat with family
And watch the seasons
The seasons change
Up in the trees

I, I wanna be in dark at night
And, and find my way home by starlight
I, I wanna be woken by a breeze
A summer breeze
And watch the seasons
The seasons change
Up in the trees
Track Name: Silently
You work at the bookstore on my street
Full of dreams I hope to live someday
In the back there is an old guitar tuned in open G, which is fine by me
Every time I walk past I hope you're there
So I can stop sleeping for a split second that lasts so long, this can't be wrong

Thank you for finding me silently
Thank you for liking me silently

You have a sidewalk sale on today
I think I'll stop outside, I'm on my bike out for a ride
I'm flipping through the pages, but I don't see the words
When I look up, eyes meet through the glass and they're saying

Thank you for finding me silently
Thank you for liking me silently
Thank you for giving me silently
Thank you for choosing me silently
Thank you for wanting me silently

Eves meeting through in a breath, through the reflective glass I'm walking past
And in that brief moment I know you somehow
Thought I've never seen you before 'til now
I think I must be on my way somewhere
But in that blink all else is gone, call it blindness but it's been so long

Thank you for finding me silently
Thank you for liking me silently
Thank you for giving me silently
Thank you for choosing me silently
Thank you for wanting me silently

Silently, silently
Silently, silently
Track Name: Something Better
Well some say be the change you wanna see in the world
I've found something better
So I walk with you and I laugh with you
Whatever the weather
When you looked me in the eye, smiled, said hello
Something woke up, and what do you know
No one's shaken me this way
You're the only one I adore
You're the change I've been waiting for

Just like the earth circles the sun
Sunshine circles you
And it's so easy to love you
It's all I wanna do
Well the light in your eyes showed me the way
To the life I wanna live
The gifts I gotta give
No one's shaken me this way
You're the only one I adore
You're the change I've been waiting foren me this way

Back you up
Wear your clothes
Have your babies someday I suppose
You're my sugar
My coffee's cream
Perfect picture 'cause we are what we dream

Just like the earth circles the sun
Sunshine circles you
And it's so easy to love you
It's all I wanna do
When you looked me in the eye, smiled, said hello
Something woke up, and what do you know
No one's shaken me this way
You're the only one I adore
You're the change I've been waiting for

When you looked me in the eye, smiled, said hello
Something woke up, and what do you know
No one's shaken me this way
You're the only one I adore
You're the change I've been waiting for
You're the only one I adore
You're the change I've been waiting for

Ooh, Sunny Terry and Brownie McGee
Thank you for inspiring me
Track Name: Buddy
Once I built a railroad, made it run
Made it race against time
Once I build a railroad, now it's done
Buddy can you spare a dime?

Once I built a tower to the sky
Steal and concrete and lime
Once I built a tower, now it's done
Buddy can you spare a dime?

Once in khaki suits
Gee, we looked swell
Full of that yankee doodle dum
Half a million boots went slogging through hell
I was the one with the drum
Say can't you remember, they called me Al
It was Al all the time
Say can't you remember, I'm your pal!
Buddy can you spare a dime?

Once I built a railroad, made it run
Made it race against time
Once I build a railroad, now it's done
Buddy can you spare a dime?

Once I built a tower to the sun
Brick and rivet and lime
Once I built a tower, now it's done
Buddy can you spare a dime?

Once in khaki suits
Gee, we looked swell
Full of that yankee doodle dum
Half a million boots went slogging through hell
I was the one with the drum
Say can't you remember, they called me Al
It was Al all the time
Say can't you remember, I'm your pal!
Buddy can you spare a dime?
Track Name: Get Together
Stop what you're doin'
Take a step back
We can get together
Get back on the right track
Stop what you're doin'
Take a step back
We can get together

Are you trying to sleep?
After a long days work?
Sewing what you'll reap?
Are you looking for love?
Hoping one day you'll be what you dream of?
But do you waste your time?
Are you like me, afraid of walkin' the fine line?
Do you need to let go?
Stop tryin' to please everybody you know?

Oh, you better stop what you're doin'
Take a step back
We can get together
Get back on the right track
Stop what you're doin'
Take a step back
We can get together

Are you tryin' not to stare?
Are you hoping there's something for you out there?
Are you tryin' to succeed?
Don't you know you're gonna get everything you need?
But do you still waste your time?
Are you like me, afraid of walkin' the fine line?

You better stop what you're doin'
Take a step back
We can get together
Get back on the right track
Stop what you're doin'
Take a step back
We can get together
Get back on the right track

Stop what you're doin'
Take a step back
We can get together
Get back on the right track
Stop what you're doin'
Take a step back
We can get together

'Cause you know it's time to
Don't you know it's time to?

Get together
Get together
Get together
Track Name: Friday Night
I look in the mirror
And I don't see myself
And all the love that I'm waiting for
Well it's all there on the tallest shelf
And I can't wait for the rain to stop
They say the sun's coming back soon
But I can smell the fall and

Whatever happened to friday night?
Whatever happened to every little thing's gonna be alright?
And whatever happened to tried and true?
Whatever happened to I love you?

Standing on corners waiting for buses to come
Well I know I'll be late but I don't think it matters much anymore
'Cause everyone expects it, it's no surprise at all
And I'm just waiting for that inevitable fall
And I don't know but I think it's gonna rain again
And I just wanna ask
I just wanna know from you

Whatever happened to friday night?
Whatever happened to every little thing's gonna be alright?
And whatever happened to tried and true?
Whatever happened to I love you?

I look in the mirror
And I don't see myself
And all the love that I'm waiting for
Well it's all there on the tallest shelf
And I say

Whatever happened to friday night?
Whatever happened to every little thing's gonna be alright?
And whatever happened to tried and true?
Whatever happened to me and you?
Me and you
To you
To you
To you
Track Name: Good Love
Good love, I know you're out there, waiting for a smile
Good love, I know you're out there, and I wanna play for a while
Let's get to know each other over a life of time
Good love oh good love... good love won't you be mine
Be mine, be mine, be mine, be mine, be mine

Good love, people lose heart
Can't find their way
And good love, through the darkness
You lead the way
'Cause good love, you're always there
To light my path home
Good love, you're more than a dream
And no one wants to be alone
Alone, alone, alone, alone, alone

Good love, you're the light at the end
Good love, you're my best friend
Good love, you're worth waiting for
Good love, you give so much more
So much more, so much more, so much more

Good love, I know you're out there, waiting for a smile
Good love, I know you're out there, and I wanna play for a while
Let's get to know each other over a life of time
Good love oh good love... good love won't you be mine
Be mine, be mine, be mine, be mine, be mine
Track Name: Beauty Myth
You say you don't know why you feel this way
You say you don't know why you act this way
Well let me give you just a little clue
The beauty myth got a hold on you
Oh, oh, oh, oh

You say you don't know why you think this way
And you say you don't know why you live this way
Well I've got a book might help you see through
The beauty myth got a hold on you
Oh, oh, oh, oh

Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah

You say you don't know why it hurts so much
'Cause it used to free you just to feel her touch
But now each time after you enter
You are still thrown off centre
Oh, oh, oh, oh

The light is shone from her eyes for you
Just like the sun on a summer afternoon
But now it's time to turn and walk away
Chasing a sunset never saved the day
Oh, oh, oh, oh

Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
Track Name: Rusty Door
You got that look, like you've already been here before
Road stones in your eyes, salt on your rusty van door
Something in the way you hesitate, when you say goodnight
Keep on driving past the border, hypnotized by the dashboard light

Walkin' after dark falls
Keep a-movin' when the music dies down
Walkin' after dark falls
Keep a-movin' when the music dies down
Something in the way you turn away, when you say goodnight
Keep on driving past the border, hypnotized by the dashboard light

(harmonica solo)

Something I can do, turn a minute into a day?
Is there something I can do, turn a minute into a day?
Something in the way you pull me in when you say goodnight
Just keep on driving past the border, hypnotized by the dashboard light

You got that look, like you've already been here before
Road stones in your eyes, salt on your rusty van door
Something in the way you pull me in, when you say "It's alright"
Keep on driving past the border, hypnotized by the dashboard light
Keep on driving past the border, hypnotized by the dashboard light
Keep on driving past the border, hypnotized by the dashboard light
