Track Name: Before You're Gone (Let Me Say That I'm Sorry)
I feel that you wouldn't love me if you could
though I'm convinced it would do you good
all i can say is that I hope you would for me because

I'll be lonely here

Remember, you always said that I was wrong
and that I should sing a different song
now that I do, it still seems wrong because

I'll be lonely here

It's not that I'm satisfied to see you go
and I'd take this time just to let you know
that I would rather see you grow than stay, but

I'll be lonely here
Track Name: Ilk
I'm still trying to find my ilk
among the pictures and postcards, the fractures and the fricassee, baby
warp and weft a woven silk
I'd fall in through the fabric and disappear forever, babe

And say, "what would you do for me?"
then I could say, "What can you do for me?"
but then I'd ask, "What can you do for me?"

I'm still trying to find my ilk
among the picture people postcards, all the fractures and the fricassee
I'd be a line in a curve, all an arc in a circle
that could circulate forever, baby

And say, "what would you do for me?"
then I could say, "What can you do for me?"
but then I'd ask, "What can you do for me?"

All your feats and your fights, are you everything you wanted to be?
the roll of the dice you'd find everything you wanted to
finest feats and your fights, are you everything you wanted to be?
the roll of the dice you'd find everything you wanted to...
Track Name: Head is Clear Again
Look around, see the colors fade
traditions change with age
and your head is clear again

[sigh]

your head is clear again

Breathe better oxygen at night
good air fades with first light
and your head is clear again

You're not the same as you used to be
same as me

Feel your soles, cool pavement skin
the world presses back and you could fight it it
but your head is clear again

You're not the same as you used to be
same as me

Not anymore, not anymore

Feel your soles, cool pavement skin
the world presses back and you could fight it it
but your head is clear again

[sigh]

You're not the same as you used to be
same as me
Track Name: It's Got To Be You
Ooh, look me in the eyes
everything you do is surprise
I want to spend my life
loving you

Ooh, look me in the eyes
live love like a prize
I want to spend my time
with you

Because, It's got to be
it's got to be
Well it's got to be you

Ooh, look me in the eyes
you give me good time
I want to spend my mind
on you

Because, It's got to be
it's got to be
Well it's got to be you

In your time you'll never find a love as fine as mine,
give it time and you will find what's yours and mine is fine

Because, It's got to be
it's got to be
Well it's got to be you

Ooh, look me in the eyes
everything you do is surprise
I want to spend my time
loving you

Because, It's got to be
it's got to be
Well it's got to be you

I need your help now
somebody help me

Well it's got to be you
Track Name: Guardian Angel
Her cheeks were bright apple-red
to match the fall shed of tupelo
skin summer honey and chestnut eyes
what would I be without her love

A crown of knit copper beech
we build with knurled oak and cobbled dreams
me and my guardian angel
where would I be without her love
how could I fly without her love

Coming to terms with our dreams
untying tethers that held us tame
skin summer honey and chestnut eyes
where would i be without her love
and how could i fly without her love

Her words shone sharp like the sun
that pries the dreams from your sleeping eyes
me and my guardian angel
where would i be without her love
and how could i fly without her love

Her cheeks were bright apple-red
to match the fall shed of tupelo
skin summer honey and chestnut eyes
what would I be without her love
and how could i fly without her love
what would I be without her love
and how could i fly without her love
Track Name: Too Young
Too young to fall apart
I'm too young to fall apart, well
Too young to fall apart
I'm too young to fall apart, well

Of love came a baby, a boy, a son
grown wise, grown lean come into his own
who say what he say, and today what he sees
nobody but he can be what he'll be

I'm too young to fall apart, at what point am I old enough?
I'm too young to fall apart, at what point am I old enough?

Of love came a baby, a girl, a promise
grown strong, grown tender come into her own
who sees what she sees, and today what she says
nobody but she feel what she'll be

I'm too young to fall apart, at what point am I old enough?
I'm too young to fall apart, at what point am I old enough?

Of love came a promise, a gift, a truth
grown wise, grown whole, come into its own
who give what it give, and today it will be
nobody alone can feel what it gives

I'm too young to fall apart, at what point am I old enough?
I'm too young to fall apart, at what point am I old enough?
I'm too young to fall apart, at what point am I old enough?
I'm too young to fall apart, at what point am I old enough?
Track Name: I'm Waiting for Something
I'm waiting for something
something to take me away
oh, never seemed so cold before
I'm waiting for something
something to break the ice
oh, you never seemed so cold before

I'm waiting for something (uh, aqua boogie baby)
something to take me away
oh, never seemed so cold before (never learned to swim)
I'm waiting for something
something to break the ice (Can't get the meaning of the stroke)
oh, you never seemed so cold before

I can't can't keep track, baby
and that's a fact
because it's back to back
I think about the way you act
you lack the tact

I can't can't keep track, baby
and that's a fact
because it's back to back
I think about the way you act
you lack the tact (WOOO!!)

something to break-a the ice
