Track Name: Once Around The Town Square
The patio
The flowers made of concrete
Gazebo
Memorial
You saw me

Once around the town square
Then on
I kissed you at the park
Our friends
Cheered us on

The cordless phone
In the back yard
Exploring the tone
Of your voice

Once we're on the roof
We can be
At all of the places
That we can see

I held your hand for just one night
In your ford fiesta
It felt right

Once around the town square
Then on
We flew over the park
Our friends cheered us on
Track Name: Old Lullabies
In a heart that pays
For crimes over and over
In a single day
I traded one love for another

My hair turned gray

The old lullabies
Nostalgic and wise
A breeze from outside
I follow the light
I'm taking your hand
From past to present
Young love demands
Complete carelessness
Oh, I remember

In a single day
I can't please one soul or the other
Either too quiet or outspoken
Either too proud or too broken
My hair turns gray
Track Name: I'd Be Dead
I’d be dead if I didn’t have you

You suffered for such a long time
You don’t have to anymore
I’ve got some things I should let go of for sure
I think it’s time we both found a cure

I’d be dead if I didn’t have you
Track Name: You Could Be Great
Some days you aimed high
Some you just couldn't try
Some days were golden

Sunday morning
Homeless church in the park
I watched you joined them

And you could be great

Your father’s records
Gave you hope for a while
But you're just maintaining

Then on some days
You see the sun hit the sky
When it’s raining

And you could be great

All the songs you learned how to play
You still play them by heart
I wonder what your old self would say
If you could see you know

The past is a record
A silent case on the shelf
Don't always notice

When the mood strikes
You pick one out and it plays
And it’s golden

And you could be great
Track Name: Memories That Glow
Leave me alone
Memories that glow
Leave me alone
I wanna go
To places unknown

Pills and alcohol
That’s why
You ask the reason for piece of mind
One day you’ve got the will, the fight
Some days there’s no place a heart can hide

Leave me alone
Memories that glow
I wanna grow
To places places unknown
I wanna grow

Pills and alcohol
They drive
Drive me out of my mind
One day you got the will, the drive
Some days there’s no peace
A brain can provide

Leave me alone
I wanna go
Leave me alone
I wanna go
To places unknown

Leave me alone
I wanna grow
Leave me alone
Memories that glow
Memories that glow
Track Name: Maybe We'll Change
I hit the water in such a way that took my breath
I saw you stand above me our eyes met
I never did learn to dive like you did
But I tried all summer long
You waited so patiently
For what you hoped would come

Maybe we’ll change
Never knowing how long it’ll take
The radio still plays
Never sure what it’s trying to say
Maybe I’ll know someday

You bought 14 tapes just to find one song
A song about divorce and moving on
You never did
Find that song
But you tried all summer long
You waited next to the radio
For what was to come

Maybe we’ll change
Never knowing
How long it’ll take
The radio still plays
I didn’t know
What you were trying to say
Maybe I’ll know someday
Track Name: You And Me Driving Cross Country
You and me
Driving cross country
65 to lake shore drive
The sun
The earth
In our skin

That’s when things got good again
Oh baby I don’t know
I feel like I can do anything
Oh baby make it so

No one will care
When we tell them where
When or how we’ve been
We got away
From the day to day
We’ve got the present tense

That’s when things get good again
Oh baby I don’t know
I feel like I can do anything
Oh baby make it so
Track Name: Kathleen
Kathleen Kathleen Kathleen
Our time on this earth is so brief
A house a cat, a dog and me
I can’t offer you anymore money
But we’ll vacation in our dreams
I’ll warm you
While you sleep

Kathleen

Kathleen Kathleen Kathleen
I love you
That’s all I mean
I drink too much
My mind’s unclean
But i’ll shower
When it occurs to me

Kathleen

I woke and held you as you slept
I watched the sun I felt your breath
And when we reach our final rest
Side by side through life and death
Our spirit spread through earth and air
Wherever you go
Well I’ll be there

Kathleen
Track Name: To Move On
I look into the face of my reflection
I see the lines on my face
Will never lesson
Do I have any choice but to just simply move on
If the past has it’s place what do I see in the mirror?

How long
How long
Will this go on
The past wants to haunt
The present wants to move on

I look into the face of my depression
I call it out in the street
Teach it a lesson
Hey doctor is it OK if I just simply move on?
Enough time spent on the past for your satisfaction

How long
How long
Will this go on
The past wants to haunt
The present wants to move on

How long
How long
Will the past have a hold on
My present state to learn from
Mistakes so the future is less unknown
Track Name: It Isn't Mine
I loved you under festival lights
We were so
High
You and I
Love had never been made real to me
We took all of the ecstasy
Our eyes
Could see
Open wide
At the Flaming Lips stage design

There is a part of me
Tonight in a dream
It isn’t where
My head wants to be
There is a part of me
Tonight in a dream
It’s no longer mine
And never again will be

The bartender didn’t mind
That your ID
Was fake
Same as mine
Friends had never been made real to me

I expected too many things
Things I could not see
I had no right
To assume you'd fill the void inside

There is a part of me
Tonight in a dream
It isn’t where
My head wants to be
There is a part of me
Tonight in a dream
It’s no longer mine
And never again will be

Flying through space and time
All our faults
Aside
There is a line
And now we've ended up on opposite sides

I don’t feel any shame to say
That I miss
You today
Why can’t it be
A celebration worth remembering?

There is a part of me
Tonight in a dream
It isn’t where
My head wants to be
There is a part of me
Tonight in a dream
It’s no longer mine
And never again will be
