Track Name: Started Off With Cocaine
Started off with cocaine,
It all ends much the same,
I'm still in love with you, uh huh,
I guess I needed,
to feel mistreated, yeah,
I'm still in love with you, uh huh,

oh well,
I still miss what we had,
yes I do,
yes I do,
yes I do,

Look how much we've changed,
Look how much she's gained,
I can't keep up with you, no,
Followed my lead through,
Now we are following too,
And I can't keep up with you, no,

oh well,
I still miss what we had,
yes I do,
yes I do,
yes I do,

yeah well,
I still miss what we had,
yes I do,
yes I do,
yes I do.
Track Name: Make Believe
Make believe,
Come on let's pretend,
If you would only play along,
I'd even let you win,

Oh my girl,
If you're not too long,
I will wait for you forever,
for you to play along,

I'll just sit here thinking,
Doing my best not to dream,
Cause dreaming is just the poorer form,
Of make believe

Make believe,
come on lets pretend,
if you would only play along,
I'd even let you win,

I'll just sit here thinking,
doing my best not to dream,
when dreaming is just the poorer form
of make believe
Track Name: Love The Way She Loves Me
I love the way she looks at me,
I love her touch,
I love the things she says to me,
that make me blush,

I love it how she knows,
just what I think,
and I love it how she makes,
my heart beat,
I love it how she loves me,

I love it how she gets upset,
when I stay out,
and I love it how she takes the bed,
but I still get the couch,

and I love it how she knows,
just how to act,
and I love it how so far,
she's always taken me back,
and I love it how she loves me

and i love it how she knows,
just how I think,
and I love it how she makes my heart beat,
and I love it how she knows,
just how to act,
and I love it how so far,
she's always taken me back,
and I love it how she loves me
Track Name: Strange and Beautiful
Oh what a strange and beautiful life,
when everything's messed up then turns out alright,
Oh what a strange and beautiful world,
Oh how I miss you girl,

I call, three times a week,
sometimes four when I can,
but I'm not so sure that she tells you,
Oh if you'd understand,
Why weekends with me,
that we both loved so much,
became once in awhile,
and then out of touch,
Oh what a strange and beautiful world,
Oh how I miss you girl,

Try as I might,
to make it through tonight,
toss and turn and dreaming of,
what a beautiful girl you've become,

I write each chance I get,
sometimes three and four at a time,
but I'm not so sure you receive them,
oh if she even reads you a line,
if only she'd read how I love you so,
And how I didn't leave, I just had to go,
Oh what a strange and beautiful world,
Oh how I miss you girl

Try, as I might,
to get some sleep tonight,
toss and turn and dreaming of,
what a beautiful girl you've become,
what a beautiful girl, you've become,
Track Name: Kiss Me
Kiss me,
C'mon baby kiss me,
what are we waiting for,
it aint like we never, done this before,
maybe not with each other,
something tells me we'll be fine,
It's our first kiss on our first time,

Love me,
C'mon baby love me,
oh no matter which way I turn,
Cause in your direction,
my heart,
forever,
yearns for it's other more perfect and beautiful part,
Cause I've nothing without your heart,

Birds still sing,
since you left the ring,
I just can't hear it,
The sky's still blue,
though I'm not with you,
But I've just,
Grown blind to it,
I've grown so blind to it,

The children still play,
since you went away,
but I just aint,
got time for it,
the world still turns,
and a fire still burns,
But I've grown so cold in it,
I've grown so cold in it.
Track Name: Tennessee
He wants to be just like Tennessee,
choking on a bottle top,
he ain't afraid to die,
besides he's got a train to catch,
and there just ain't enough time to worry,
when your in such a hurry home,
where you can shout it out loud,
this is what I've become,

She wants to be just like Anais,
witness to everyone,
writing everything down,
oh that girl can tell a story,
ask anybody around,
who's met her,
ask Henry Miller how,
for just a dollar a page,
how they'd scream,
how they'd shout
Track Name: Beautiful Dreams
Sweet Dreams,
You put in my head,
such beautiful things
gardens with flowers,
and sunsets for hours,
only in my head,

what a shame, what a shame,
when I'm awake you won't speak my name,
but oh in my head yes,
oh in my head,
you do, you do, you do,
and it rolls right off of your tongue,
that's when I come undone,
beautiful dreams,

Now when I'm by a lake,
i know I'm awake when I have to look for you,
cause when I'm asleep,
we dangle our feet out over the water,
Track Name: Glorious Glorious
The glorious glorious life of this singer,
Come down to Nashville and,
Check out my fingers,
You tour the museums while I play the streets,
If you like what you hear buy me something to eat,

They don't make guys like you where I'm from,
I always thought the streets were for bums,
so softly landing a kiss on my face,
she liked the feeling, I love the taste,

The glorious glorious life of the artist,
watching him play can be so cathartic,
hearing her sing just might take you home,
what you see on that stage well that's all that she owns,
Track Name: You're Not Listening
You've got your head up your ass,
You're not listening,
You're driving too fast,
You're not listening,
You're following too close,
You're not listening,
You're never listening,
You're not listening to me,

Well how could you tell,
You're not listening,
I'm not feeling that well,
You're not listening,
what does that spell,
You're not listening,
You're never listening,
You're not listening to me,

But I believe in you,
Not much more could I do,
I believe in you,
might as well face it,
you're gonna have to face me too.
Track Name: Saturday Night
Hey there baby you're a Saturday night,
but it's only Wednesday,
and he hates his job,
and now that his raise is overdo,
he's getting on with getting over you,

Hey there baby hang on me tonight,
I'm only right now I feel alright,
and now that my day is almost through,
I'm getting on with getting over you,

Hey there baby at the top of the stack,
why you always crying, always looking back,
for painful memories to rip your life away,
where you getting who your putting over you,

Hey there baby hang on me tonight,
I'm only right now I feel alright,
and now that my day is almost through,
I'm getting on with getting over you,

I'm getting on with getting over you,
Nothing much that you can do,
Don't hold your breath waiting on me girl,
