Track Name: You Make Me Wonder
You make me wonder
How I could ever go
Go on without you
But I won't have to know
You say, "I can't show you everything
But I can try"

You keep our hearts aligned
You keep me so
I'll always believe it's good for my soul

You make me wonder
How you could just let go
All those things about me
I used to have control
You say, "I can't fix everything,
But I can try."

You keep our hearts aligned
You keep me so
I'll always believe it's good for my soul

You're all that I need for a home
You insulate me from the cold

You keep our hearts aligned
You keep me so
I'll always believe it's good for my soul

You keep our hearts aligned
You keep me so
I'll always believe you're good for my soul
Track Name: Last First Dance
Let's have our last first kiss
How sad we only get one
Let's take our time on it
Before it's gone, before it's gone

Let's have our last first dance
I'll pull you closer to me
And you can follow my lead
Until it's done, until it's done

And if you fall I'm here to carry you, with all I am
And if I die before our love is through, I pray that
God would give us lover's wings to dance before the Son
So take my hand, let's have our last first one

Let's have our last first waltz
We'll count them one-two-three
And all the world will see
We'll become, we'll become
Two in one

And if you fall I'm here to carry you, with all I am
And if I falter will you save me too? So I thank
God and raise a toast unto the mystery that's begun
So take my hand, let's have our last first one
Track Name: Boys Like This
Well I met you on the promenade
I smiled and you withheld a nod
But I was not deterred by the offense
If I was one to cause a scene
I'd ask to take you home with me
But girls like you don't come around my bed

Now, as if you were a beauty queen
I hoarded all your magazines
Kept safely for the days of my unrest
And I often dreamed of where we'd meet
An evening walk along the street
The lamplight shining low across your chest

And if I was another man
You'd give me a chance

But as it is I'm ill-equipped
With coffee cigaretted lips
And girls like you don't kiss on boys like this
And I am overwhelmed, I am overwhelmed
I am overwhelmed by you and it fits

I’m less than I’m supposed to be
And I have a proclivity
For holding on to anger and contempt
But if it helps to be forewarned
I’m selfish and I’m self-absorbed
I’m frugal – okay, stingy. Okay, cheap.

And if I was another man
You'd give me a chance

And in my dreams we skinny dipped
And I saw your silhouetted hips,
But girls like you don't kiss on boys like this

And I'm not trying to hide
I would love to have you in my life
One day I might be good enough for it

But as it is I'm ill-equipped
With coffee cigaretted lips
And girls like you don't kiss on boys like this
And I am overwhelmed, I am overwhelmed
I am overwhelmed by you and it fits

As it is I'm ill-equipped
With coffee cigaretted lips
And girls like you don't kiss on boys like this
Track Name: Tonight In My Dreams
You work a nine to five trying to stay alive
And everyone can see it's killing you
Yet you continue along when all motivation is gone
I don't know what to do
No, so quit your day job, take off because déjá
Is an awfully repetitive view
Now, I hope you don't mind, don't mind, don’t mind
If I don't mind, don't mind telling you

You owe it to yourself to give you a chance to change
Go on and take the reigns
If you're in my nightmares, I want you to stay
I hope to see you tonight in my dreams

You're independent, your confidence unfettered has
Rendered useless all the words I could say
Yet I continue to try don’t know why oh why
I never realize there’s nothing to gain
You never tell me when you’re breaking
No, you never seem to tear
You never let me see you shaking
But I can see right through you there

You owe it to yourself to give you a chance to change
Go on and take the reigns
If you're in my nightmares, I want you to stay
I hope to see you tonight in my dreams

My dreams, my dreams, are wasted on the dead
My dreams are empty without you
My dreams, my dreams somehow all surround you
My dear, you haunt me in my bed
Track Name: Blush
I just wanna be the one who says "you're beautiful"
I just wanna be the one who says "come closer"
I’m just waiting for a chance to be the one to sweep you off your feet
Waiting, and waiting and waiting impatiently

If you don’t believe in love, maybe you’ve seen enough
I like to think that I could change your mind
Let me underneath your love, let me see you blush
I wanna see you blush

I thought you were the one for me, I wanna be the one for you
Ever by your side, ever staying true
I’m just waiting for a chance to be the one to make you smile at me
Waiting and waiting and waiting impatiently

If you don’t believe in love, maybe you’ve seen enough
I like to think that I could change your mind
Let me underneath your love, let me see you blush
I wanna see you blush

I want you everywhere I go
I want you everywhere I know
I want you everywhere at home and on the road and on the go
I want your lips, I want your nose
I want your whispers and your toes
I want your love, the way it flows, and I want you to know

If you don’t believe in love, maybe you’ve seen enough
I like to think that I could change your mind
Let me underneath you love, let me see you blush
I wanna see you blush
Track Name: Treason
I've got a reason for calling it treason
'Cause yours was a heartless betrayal
Posted on the doorway - "Consider it foreplay" -
Your sarcasm drove in the nail

I've got a reason for calling it treason
A swindler is what you became
By leisure or lecture, I now have conjectured
Our love was a confidence game

Now I can't believe what has happened to me
In the wake of our pseudo-affair
And if we found love on the way, I could not tell you where

Remember, remember my love struck pretender
Igniting my sorrows ablaze
Remember how awful that night at the brothel
My woes didn't quite wash away

Now I can't believe what has happened to me
In the wake of our pseudo-affair
And if we found love on the way, I could not tell you where

I've got a reason for calling it treason
'Cause you broke my heart just the same
But my heart's only breakin' 'cause our love was worth makin'
And now it's been taken away
Track Name: Little Less Talk
Well people they come, and people they go
And people they change overnight
But when people think they are losing their rights,
Well people start losing their minds

So a little less talk, a little more love
Less criticism, more grace from above
Is all that we want, but we act so tough
A little less talk, more love.

Well people they come, and people they know
When love's only there as a show
Now show only leaves you ashamed and alone
But love saves the world when it's right

A little less talk, a little more love
Less criticism, more grace from above
Is all that we want, but we act so tough
A little less talk, more love

I give my 10 percent every week
To cover my bases with Christ
But if I was God, watching all of these wrongs
I’d sure be ashamed of this life

A little less talk, a little more love
Less criticism, more grace from above
Is all that we want, but we act so tough
A little less talk, more love
Track Name: Muttered Oh Brothers
You and me, we got our things
That keep us from each other
Our muttered “oh brother"s
This ain’t a walk on the beach
And darling I ain’t too happy about it
But if we’re going for broke
You keep spending my time

Yeah, this ain’t a walk on the beach
And darling I ain’t too happy about it

You and me, sometimes it feels
Like we’re halfway committed
I admit i don’t get it
The way that we shine
Cause everybody knows
If it ain’t all then it’s nothing
I got my toes in the sand
Baby i’m drawing a line

Yeah, this ain’t a walk on the beach
And darling I ain’t too happy about it
Yeah, I got my toes in the sand
Baby I’m drawing a line

You and me, we got our things
That keep us from going under
Our sisters and brothers, fathers and mothers
Sometimes I wonder if I had my druthers
Would I make a blunder or smother my lover with covers of gold

Yeah, this ain’t a walk on the beach
And darling I ain’t too happy about it
Yeah, I got my toes in the sand
Baby I’m drawing a line
Yeah, cause everybody knows
If it ain’t all then it’s nothing
Yeah, and if we’re going for broke
You keep spending my time

We got our things, that keep us from going under
This ain’t a walk on the beach
And darling I ain’t too happy about it
I got my toes in the sand
Baby i’m drawing a line

Yeah, this ain’t a walk on the beach
And darling I ain’t too happy about it
Yeah, I got my toes in the sand
Baby I’m drawing the line
Yeah, cause everybody knows
If it ain’t all then it’s nothing
Yeah, and if we’re going for broke
You keep spending my time

I got my toes in the sand
Baby I'm drawing a line
I got my toes in the sand
Baby I'm drawing a line
Track Name: West Coast California
West coast California
Is where I learned to love you
And call you more than friend
Solana for our honeymoon
Underneath the stars at two
The waves came crashing in
Can we always love like that again

Blackened ink at Christmastime
I took yours and you took mine
And started quite a trend
Wednesdays at the Honeymoon
Mead to help us sing the blues
But they were just pretend
Can we always love like that again

Would you overflow with gladness if I overcame myself?
Would you bury me in sadness if I fell?
No, you never were the kind to cry and tell
But never underestimate a heart that swells

Pomeroy to Walla Walla
Riding hard against the wind
You drafted off my skin
Then camped on the Columbia
Falling asleep under you
All tangled and content
Can we always love like that again

Would you overflow with gladness if I overcame myself?
Would you bury me in sadness if I fell?
No, you never were the kind to cry and tell
But never underestimate a heart that swells
Darling treat me good and I’ll be good as well
Track Name: You Light Up My Life
You wear your high-heels, Saturday night you’re walking slow
Red lipstick black lace, tell me you won’t tell me no
You hit me with your devilish eyes
Like it shouldn’t be a surprise, and head for the door
But I’ve never wanted you more

You light up my life, you know I could spare the night
Well you overload all my feromones, and I can’t
See straight or keep my thoughts from running wild

You call your girlfriends, Friday night you’re on the prowl
Eye liner red dress, your best when I’m not around
But in the eye of this beholder
You’re the queen with the coldest shoulder
And I’ve never wanted you more

You light up my life, you know I could spare the night
Well you overload all my feromones, and I can’t
See straight or keep my thoughts from running wild

Only your smile can make my heart palpitate
And I get overwhelmed knowing you’re the one to blame
Take me in, pull me down, show me you can relate
Come on baby, come on baby, come on baby

You light up my life, you know I could spare the night
Well you overload all my feromones, and I can’t
See straight or keep my thoughts from running wild
Track Name: I Will Never Fall Apart
The sun is higher than these clouds would all suggest
My countenance is lower than my heart hangs in my chest
If only I could see your face then I would put these things to rest

I will never fall apart, as long as you're around
You can always have my heart, the way you make it sound

Darling in the daylight, how I've seen your blue eyes shine
Even in my darkest hour I've come to call you mine
For all the ways we're torn apart
It seems we're held intact by the divine

I will never fall apart, as long as you're around
You can always have my heart, the way you make it sound

Your grandfather the mason fashioned mansions out of stone
He worked and toiled for fifty years until he built his own
But I would rather love in squalor than to have lived in wealth alone

I will never fall apart, as long as you're around
You can always have my heart, the way you make it sound

We'll be a new sensation, you were everything I asked and more
You were my foundation, you were everything I asked and more

Well Jesus was a carpenter who crafted with his hands
He bent until the breaking point beneath the Lord's demands
And I have seen a loyalty in you that makes me understand

I will never fall apart, as long as you're around
You can always have my heart, the way you make it sound
Track Name: How I Burn For You
You were 25 and thought that life was over, how I burn for you
I was looking when you came around the corner, how I burn for you
People can't imagine all that we've been through
We must have been crazy when we settled down forever, oh how I burn for you

You make me so damn angry I go insane
You make me hurt but still my love will never change
God must have been laughing when he brought us two together, how I burn for you

27, you were scared to be with child, how I burn for you
Every day was something new to be reviled, how I burn for you
People can't imagine all that we've been through
We must have been crazy when we settled down forever, oh how I burn for you

You make me so damn angry, I go insane
You make me hurt but still my love will never change
God must have been laughing when he brought us two together, how I burn for you

People can’t imagine all that we have seen
You must have fallen hard to fall in love with me
We must have been lovers when we settled down forever

You make me so damn angry, I go insane
You make me hurt but still my love will never change
God must have been laughing when he brought us two together, how I burn for you

People can’t imagine, all that we’ve been through
Track Name: How I Burn For You [reprise]
You make me so damn angry, I go insane
You make me hurt, but still my love will never change, will never change

You make me so damn lonely, I go insane
You make me hurt, but still my love will never change, will never change

You make me so damn happy, I can't explain
You make me smile, so still my love will never change, will never change
