Track Name: Sit & Stare
wherever there & here turn out to be
you're always there i fear in front of me
it's as if we're magnetic or just plain pathetic
do we think that we can't see each others glances

it's a game of tag in a way
the moment my eyes meet yours, you look away
& if this ain't considered flirting then
i guess i never the way to play the boy girl games
oh just tell me you want me
and leave all the games behind

we sit & try not to stare
i'm here, you sit over there
we sit & try not to stare
i've never seen eyes, no
i've never seen eyes, no
i've never seen eyes act so childish before

it's like in 6th grade
when you have your secret love affairs
how do i tell you, without speaking,
that i really really care about you
'cause you know that i know
you're looking this way
but you know that i know
that that's quite okay by me
& damn we can only say so much without speaking
& damn our eyes can see what
our inner thoughts are thinking
oh man, just tell me you want me
and leave all the games behind

we sit & try not to stare
i'm here, you sit over there
we sit & try not to stare
i've never seen eyes, no
i've never seen eyes, no
i've never seen eyes act so childish before

i see you sitting there
and you know i'm staring back
i'd like to talk to you but
i don't know what i'd say or how i'd act oh
oh baby baby - you drive me crazy crazy
oh baby, just tell me you want me
and leave all the games behind

we sit & try not to stare
i'm here, you sit over there
we sit & try not to stare
i've never seen eyes, no
i've never seen eyes, no
i've never seen eyes act so childish before
Track Name: Molly
molly won't you tell me what's wrong
you know my face & it's been a while
since you've seen it this long
tell me if you have a clue
what i can do to overcome
the fears that are coming over me
the fears that are coming over me
the fears that are coming over right now

do do do, you don't get distracted
by the sunbeams attacking
because you wear them big brown glasses
that will stop any ill attacking on you
do do do, you say don't think about her first
because that'll make it worse
well thank you, for putting it
all in perspective for me

you know i have such amazing dreams
'bout what the future holds for me
don't know what of those dreams we'll see
but you put it in perspective for me

molly won't you give me advice
the world around is a'looking down
on this portion of my life
well tell me if you have a cure
because i am sure that my thoughts have
gotten to strong a hold of me
gotten to strong a hold of me
gotten to strong a hold right now

do do do, you just start your hopping
when the musics a'dropping
because you feel the music in your body
& there's nothing you can do
do do do, you say don't think about her first
because that'll make it worse
well thank you, for putting it
all in perspective for me

you know i have such amazing dreams
'bout what the future holds for me
don't know what of those dreams we'll see
but you put it in perspective for me

molly, won't you give me advice
on the world today on my life today
molly, won't you give me advice
& say that everything will be okay, well someday
molly, won't you give me some of that responsible rationality
& put a new perspective on my reality

you know i have such amazing dreams
'bout what the future holds for me
don't know what of those dreams we'll see
but you put it in perspective for me

Track Name: Don't Forget
don't forget comfy beds & breakfast
we would spend all day making
cause everybody has something, something better than me
& distance makes it easy to forget about our dreams

so please, won't you give me
one more chance to be with you

don't ask me why, i have a hard time believing that i'm worth it to love
that always seems to happen when i'm thinking too much
and i'm not sure why, it seems so long since yesterday
let's try and get things back to the way they were

so please, won't you give me
one more chance to be with you
when you fall, fall, fall, fall asleep
when you fall, fall, fall, fall asleep
'cause i don't know if i'll be there
be there when you wake

wont you spend this night with me, wont you lay here
by my side & say that everything will be alright
and i'm not sure why, it seems so long since yesterday
let's try & get things back to the way they were

so please, won't you give me
one more chance to be with you
when you fall, fall, fall, fall asleep
when you fall, fall, fall, fall asleep
Track Name: A Thousand Years
a thousand years isn't enough
to search the world around for perfect you
a thousand years ain't what i got
but i'd do most anything you'd ask me to

and i cannot tell you enough
what it means to have you here in my life
and i cannot tell you enough
what it means to have you here in my life today

a thousand years isn't enough
for you to understand my point of view
a thousand years is what it would take
for you to do a part of what i'd do for

and recently, well i can see whats going on
and recently, well i have thought about moving on

this wasn't how i wanted things to go
and this isn't how i thought our lives would unfold

but i cannot take anymore
'cause you can't give me what i'm looking for
and i cannot take anymore
because you can't give me what i'm looking for
and i cannot tell you enough
what it meant to have you here in my life
but no more
Track Name: Love To See You Smile
i pick you up
i take your mind off
the worries of your life
i hold you close
i look you square in the eyes
& i say to you

don't you cry
it'll go by
so remember that i love you
& i'd love to see you smile

you pick me up
you take my mind off
the worries of my life
you push your lips
against my ear
& you say to me

don't be sad
in the long run it's not that bad
& so i love you
& i'd love to see you smile

let the rain, let the rain come down
let the rain, let the rain come down
let it stay, let it stay for a while
let it stay, let it stay for a while
just make sure, that i'm with her
just make sure, that i'm with her
Track Name: Goodnight
i can pretend that i'm alright
but it's just a matter of time
before you see that i'm
i'm not as strong as you

i may not have told you that i'm not
the superman you thought
but i would have told you what
that i'm not as strong as you

so goodnight, goodnight
i've tried, i've tried, to hold on

but i know i'm a mess
my body's a wreck
& all i can do is lie awake
i don't mean to complain
but i've been here for days
& i don't know how much more i can take

maybe you're wonderin' where i've gone
& why i don't respond
but then before too long
i'm right back there with you

give me some time to stay awake
& give myself a break
if that is what it takes
to be back there with you

so goodnight, goodnight
i've tried, i've tried, to hold on

but i know i'm a mess
my body's a wreck
& all i can do is lie awake
i don't mean to complain
but i've been here for days
& i don't know how much more i can take
i don't know how much more i can take

so goodnight goodnight
i dont mean to complain
but ive been here for days and i
ive tried ive tried
i know im a mess

my body's a wreck and i...

Track Name: Summer Roof
just look up at the stars
wouldn't it be nice to see them all fall down
i got a pocket full of nickels & a couple rusty dimes
to see them break the world apart

you say you want to be mother earth
wouldn't it be nice if we could kick that off today
we could load up all the animals in the ark
and watch them all wash away

so we sit on the roof
we talk about our fears
& we hope these days
will never disappear
when we sit on the roof
& we hope

somewhere, somehow, someday about now
my thoughts will change & i'll get over you
but it's so hard to tell the brain
that things have changed and they're not the same
i'm not trying oh so hard to get over you

so we sit on the roof
we talk about our fears
& we hope these days
will never disappear
when we sit on the roof
& we hope

we wouldn't change a thing about
these summer nights on the roof
we wouldn't change a thing about
these summer nights with you

somewhere, somehow, someday about now
my thoughts will change and i'll get over you
but it's so hard to tell the brain
but it's so hard to tell the brain
but it's so hard to tell the brain
things have changed - they're not the same
i'm trying oh so hard to get over, over, over you
to get over you
to get over you
to get over you
