Track Name: What If
Do you remember how it felt to be sad and lonely?
Those feelings have all disappeared.
Lost at love with only memories and never knowing
In time became so crystal clear.

What if I could be the one whose love will last forever…
What if I make dreams come true…
What if in your state of mind you speak of acting better…
Better’s not the way you used to do.
What if we find the answers deep within your mind.

Remember how it felt to be in love and to be wanted
And needed after all those years?
Those memories and ghosts have left your heart alone and haunted
And running from your deepest fears.

What if I could be the one whose love will last forever…
What if I make dreams come true…
What if in your state of mind you speak of acting better…
Better’s not the way you used to do.
What if we find the answers deep within your mind.
Track Name: Thinking Of You
A haunting glimpse, the smell of perfume;
The sound of laughter from across the room
Is all it takes to get me thinking of you.
One night of pleasure, what the future could be
If you weren't with him and she wasn't with me;
Now I'm left here, just thinking of you.
No soft gentle touches, no whispers I hear.
No comfort or courage for easing my fears.
Oh, if she only knew
That when I'm touching her hair, kissing her lips,
Holding her hand, stroking her hips,
When I'm with her I'm thinking of you.

You tell me you love me; well, that may be true.
Divided forever, I'm no closer to you.
…what life puts us through.
Should have known better to walk down that road.
There's no turning back now; there's nowhere to go.
That's what I'll say when I'm thinking of you.
Track Name: Love I've Waited For
Listen to your song and hear what I've found...
Two hearts beating.
Of all God's creations through you I see;
He gave you to me...
You gave me the love I've waited for.

Looking back, remembering times...
We've seen some smiles and some tears.
Saying "I love you" is the least I can do
To prove my devotion to you.
You gave me the love I've waited for.

With all my soul I sing you this song...
This communion of feelings...
Can't start to describe what I've felt all along...
The love I've waited for.

Reflections of love are paving the road...
Of future tomorrows...
Avoiding the fights destroying the core
Of so many others we've seen...
Growing old as one is still our dream.

With all my soul I sing you this song...
This communion of feelings...
Can't start to describe what I've felt all along...
The love I've waited for.
Track Name: Will You Still
I'm not going nowhere, I'm just falling behind.
Wouldn't call myself lost, but there's something to find.
Headed no direction, but there's someplace to be.
If you get there first babe, will you still wait for me?

I'm not listening to them, but I hear anyway.
Not keeping my silence, there's just nothing to say.
I'm not speaking out of turn, out loud or freely,
But if I called you up babe, would you still talk to me?

I remember fondly all the places we've been.
The miracles we performed and our original sins.
You're everything that moves me, all I hear feel and see.
Tomorrow and forever will you still be with me?
Will you still...?

I'm not undercover, just hard to be seen.
And I'm not looking forward to peeking behind the scenes.
Strange when you're not looking how much you can see.
When sleeping in your dreams babe, will you still see me?

I remember fondly all the places we've been.
The miracles we performed and our original sins.
You're everything that moves me, all I hear feel and see.
Tomorrow and forever will you still be with me?
Will you still...?
Track Name: Those Days Are Gone
It seems as though years have passed since the night when I first met you...
But it wasn't really long ago.
In the crowded old honky tonk the air was filled with smoke and laughter...
Now where has all the laughter gone?

The night was hot and the beer was cold when we ran into one another...
With the very first glance I took I knew.
You smiled softly, asked for me a light, said "Don't mean to be a bother."
Now all of my dreams are coming true.

We used to laugh and dance together; thought our love would live forever.
I'd hold you in my arms and love and tell you that I'm thinking of you...
Those days are gone.

Now years have passed since you went away but in the end it doesn't matter;
Reliving those moments day to day.
As the moon slowly climbs the night silhouetted in the shadows;
You look at me as if to say...

We used to laugh and dance together; thought our love would live forever.
I'd hold you in my arms and love you and tell you that I'm thinking of you...
Those days are gone
Track Name: Shoebox
Take these pictures I found of you and me in a shoebox tucked away on the closet floor.
I won’t live in the past haunted by memories that I don’t deserve anymore.

Damn you, for making me love you…
And I damn myself for not closing the door.
Our life broken down to a shoebox that I found;
Snapshots of a life I don’t want anymore.

Sceneries, silhouettes and our portraits;
Polaroids, scratchy old Kodachrome;
Like the life we once shared, now distorted;
Black & whites fade in sepia tones…

Take these pictures I found of you and me in a shoebox tucked away on the closet floor.
I won’t live in the past haunted by memories that I don’t deserve anymore.
I won’t live in the past haunted by your old memories that I don’t deserve anymore.
Track Name: All Signs Point Away
Mornings lying beside you felt like a dream.
I take my comfort knowing nothing's as it seems.
"Come on in and sit beside me," you always used to say.
And once inside your paradise I couldn't walk away.

Miles away and years gone by, in every town I've been...
I see you in each passing car; I hear you in the wind.
And every time I find a town where I think I can stay
All roads lead straight back to you, but all signs point away.

I've been thinking so much about you lately
I could almost head straight back today.
But I would find it so hard just to stay
When all signs point the other way.

Losing time and spreading lines, going with the flow.
You tried so hard to stay so young while I was getting old.
Houston's just 200 hundred miles, or three days to L.A.
All roads lead straight back to you, but all signs point away.

I've been thinking so much about you lately
I could almost head straight back today.
But I would find it so hard just to stay
When all signs point the other way.
Track Name: Time Goes On
Here we go again...
Talking about those old things that you feel my friend.
When will it ever end?
Should I blame myself?
Looking back at the moment when we both knew.
I should have told you the truth.

Time goes on and the music all sounds the same.
So hard to explain; like to see you try and make it change.
What are we to do...
Leaving all that we know and starting new.
Your eyes still hide the truth.
And why should I feel this way
When two are to blame and you can't deny
Our love was a total lie.

Time goes on and the music all sounds the same.
So hard to explain; like to see you try and make it change.

Here we go again...
Talking about those old things that you feel my friend.
Its all come to an end.
But now as I look at you
As the person that I once loved and knew...
Time goes on though we're through.
Track Name: Only To Dream
Emptiness stands, blankets my life while the night’s fallen mist
Gripping my hands…darkens my eyes and softly insists
That I chance to dream; forget what is real before cursed day
Extends damning light, the nighttime it steals as the dream slowly fades

I cannot hear; I cannot feel what I cannot see.
Trembling in fear, angels that kneel turn their backs upon me.
Morning it sings as I close my wings, wishing only to sleep.
Light takes its toll, choking my soul; I lay down to weep.

No safer now than when I have failed to believe where I’ve been.
Angels know how light shall be veiled to become night again.
Track Name: Turn Around
She wrote a note some years ago and it said, “A love like ours always survives.”
Between the ruffled satin sheets of her bed she never felt this much alive.

Turn around; turn around and look at me
(She keeps her head above the clouds)
Turn around; turn around and look at me
(Proudly declares her love out loud)

She wrote a note a year ago and it read, “Funny how life affects your mind.”
It’s more than restlessness, these thoughts within her head.
Looking for things that she can’t find.

Turn around; turn around don’t look at me
(She wraps her life inside her doubts)
Turn around; turn around don’t look at me
(Seeking but finding no way out)

She wrote a note the other day and it said, “I just can’t stay and I won’t try.”
And as she realized the love she lived was dead
She simply signed the note, “Good bye.”

Turn around; turn around she walked away
(Her love wrapped up inside a shroud)
Turn around; turn around she walked away
(Her vision darkened by the clouds)
Track Name: Wheels Of Happenstance
Meaning may be relative; intention’s by design.
Underlying reasons are the very things we struggle to define
To why things are the way they are when things make little sense.
Seemingly related spins on the wheels of happenstance.

Day to day and life to life, through event, time and season
There is no wrong; there is no right if there's no rhyme or reason.
Through each seeming occurrence of fate's disparate dance
We blindly ride our lives along on the wheels of happenstance.

Shit happens and things work out; some things don't go as planned.
Some things we find out about; some we never understand.
So often times we're no more than victims of circumstance
Hoping at best for knowledge from the wheels of happenstance.
