Track Name: Coney Island
I found a letter in the mailbox today
and I said thank you for your thoughts but I'm done
I said that I would never build this up right here
And he said that's why I can't work with you son

But I can't let this go I'm on my way
And you can only hold my diamond ring
I go crawling back to the city I love
Cause it's already taken everything

I'm going to Coney Island , have myself a dog
and reminisce why I still hate it here
It's all these people with their cotton candy eyes
It's so sweet now put the train in gear

Chorus

The ground is swallowing my options for release
and if it rains they might just disappear
I counted twenty seven birds up there today
I'm thinking that's why I still love it here
I'm thinking that's why I still love it here
Track Name: Just Another Day
Looking out my front door
in the morning
I see the light

afternoon I'm in the backyard
passing the time

and when I've said good-bye to sunshine
I call on some of my friends,
"see you soon, under the moonlight"

something's moving
outside of my house
in the night

It could be the whistle of the breeze
or some wild life
but we are alright

drinking our tea
tucked in the bed sheets
I'll dream in melody

how about you?
what will you do?

oh maybe
mother and father
still see the light

and when they can't sit in the sunshine
they call on each other
"see you soon, under the moonlight"
Track Name: Looking For Shelter
Oh fall, I am marching across the ocean
I won't fall, the ice is evaporating still

I'm just looking for shelter
You're just holding my hand if I hold you
You don't have to belong here
We'll just know when it's right
We'll just know when it's right

Oh girl, you're already a picture of my will
You're my girl, can't we try to be here just for a while?

Break the ocean in two and I'l know what to do
Bring me closer to you and I'll know what to do
Track Name: Weak Man
Let the music breathe upon my face
every step of the way
through the anguish I'll make
like the rest I made
I'm seeing you as clear and blue
like lovers do
and you should too

I'm not playing a game with you
to show that I can get ahead
just like any weak man would do
when he's losing

If life's confusing way to bring you down
has got you pissing yourself
while you're thinking out loud
try and figure out
the best approach to being true
like lovers do
and you should too

Chorus

you can't just give it all away
this is all we have saved
there is nothing here between us
this not what we had planned
there is so much more
we got nothing without each other
we got nothing
Track Name: I'm Not For You
In dreams our love has been redrawn
it shoots up over me
then the image is gone

when i try to follow you all the way home
you stop to tell me you want to be alone

there's nothing you can hide
alright?

... and if I'm not for you then, I will know there is nothing I can do
I'm not for you

well there's no sense in staying
you try and force these things
they end up breaking

how you gonna live with me on your back
oh it's getting close
it's getting close to that

there's nothing you can hide
alright?

...and if I'm not for you then, I will know when I'm talking to you
and if doubt is breaking through your brows, I will know there's nothing I can do
I'm not for you
Track Name: We've Come A Long Way
I thought I'd learned to behave
but I don't feel I'm acting my age
once in a while

and though things may not be the same
you have helped me feel no pain
all of my life

I wanted to say to you
we've come a long, long way
there's so much to say
still have a long, long way

you've seen me at my worst
and I've seen you in the reverse
we are equals

no matter what happens from here
no matter where life ends my dear
I will be grateful

I wanted to say to you
we've come a long, long way
there's so much to say
we've come a long, long way

I thought I'd learned to behave
but I don't feel I'm acting my age
once in a while

and no matter what happens from here
no matter where life ends my dear
I will be grateful

I wanted to say to you
we've come a long, long way
there's so much to say
we've come a long, long way
Track Name: No Time
There's no reason to be spending all my money on you
when you don't even want to talk

I just don't get

I want to be around, you know, but you're making it too hard

I get no time with you honey
you're always busy
I give all of mine to you honey
but you're always busy

I come home from work and you haven't gotten out of bed yet

you just don't get it

I want to be around you know but you're making it too hard

chorus

I want to be around you know but you're making it too hard

I get no time with you honey
you're always busy
I give all of mine to you honey
but you're watching tv

I give all my time to you honey
I give all of mine to your honey
but you've got no time for me
Track Name: That's What's Wrong
You're gone, so I worry about nothing else
Your eyse destroy me every time I think
I'll go as far as I can get to still stay close
To see you if you've changed

I'm the same
That's what's wrong

I've said I've got to just get on with this
You are the only thing I think about
But I left, as far as I can get to still stay close

Come and see, there's nothing going on
There's nothing going on with me
Track Name: Maybe Mine
I've been chasing you around
when I go up
you're down

I'm tired
of fooling around
hope your life
is better now

you want to run from
and I can't give up on

all of my dreams
hope they don't leave me to
how long will it take?

I already said "I do."
I liked myself with you

but you think it's worthless
for whatever reasons

all of my friends
hope they don't leave me too
how long will it take?

for you
I have been here
and you've done
what you want

call if you want to
hide when you don't
i don't care

all of your dreams
hope they don't leave you too
and when no one else sees
I see only you
how long will it take?
Track Name: Tell Me
There's a hole in the story
there is something that I haven't seen
and for now...
you want to keep it to yourself

but if you're lonely
tell me

I know the way you look
when you don't want to say what you're thinking
your eyes start to roll when you're holding back

I used to blame myself
but there must be other serious reasons
why the devil is in your voice
when you start to laugh

There's a hole in the story
there is something that I haven't seen
and for now
you want to keep it to yourself

If you're lonely
tell me

I have tried and tried
but I still cannot find any good sleep
did you think that i would go on not noticing

your attentions all too sweet
but you don't want to listen to me?
would you rather us complete this misery

there's a hole in the story
there is something that i haven't seen
and for now
you want to keep it to yourself

if you're lonely
tell me
Track Name: Window
I'm so like a window in your life
I stay so open
Some days I'm as close as I can get
When you say I love you

That's right. That's right
I'm gonna stay awake for you

My home, my only way to be alone
My home so quiet
That noise is like a thousand flying birds
It's so loud I'm shut down

I tried so hard
I wanted nothing
Some time to think
Some time alone
There's nothing wrong with being so quiet
There's nothing wrong
You're never frightened
Track Name: Stay By My Side
I never want to leave when I do
every time I leave you cry
so stay by my side

oh baby you should know i trust you
and baby you should know I'll miss you
but every time you leave I cry
stay by my side

just because I've gone away
doesn't mean I'll be gone forever
there's a point in our love
from across the world

I never want to leave when I do (don't walk away)
I never want to leave when I do (stay with me)
every time I leave you cry
stay by my side
