In My Arms 02:32
IN MY ARMS Will we ever see the sun shine once more? Will we ever feel it warm us at the door? Tell me what to do to prove my love is true And have you back... Will I never feel the tears that you cry? Will I never hear the music in your sigh? Please don't be so sad, and know that I'll be glad To have you back in my arms Will we ever get to know what went wrong? Will we ever know just why it took so long? To help you heal the pain? And hear you laugh again And have you back in my arms My heart lies in you and my time is overdue To have you back in my arms

CHASING DREAMS Take a seat have a drink and relax and everything will be ok I'll play some Smokey Robinson tunes, or would you rather Marvin Gaye? I'm coming on like you would not believe, cause I don't want you to leave Please don't go away from me now Well it's not like these things are planned, I'm hoping you would understand and I'm never sure what to do next I could use a helping hand I've got a few more tricks right up my sleeve cause I don't want you to leave Please don't go away from me now I'd rather go chasing dreams that won't come true Help me out help me out help me out save me from saving you You're sinking down from the weight of it all and wishing it would go away and I'm here to make you try to forget and make it like a holiday I'm coming on like you would not believe cause I don't want you to leave Please don't go away from me now

DAYDREAM PARADISE In a daydream paradise in a house just up the road where anything we wanted would come at any time Then one cloudy day appeared a man named Fate and everyone in paradise began to feel afraid And then she said "It's in your head". So Fate came around and looked at what he'd found and thought it must be magic, thought he knew just what to do And so we gathered 'round in that magic paradise and held each other tightly as the sunlight fades away And then she said "It's in your head". I've never felt this way before I'll never feel this way again And then she said "It's in your head".

THE MAYBE SONG Maybe I'll write you a love song tonight Maybe you'll hear it and things will go right Or maybe it won't go that way and I just don't know what to say But something's inside me that won't go away It's this pain, love, joy fear thing, I can't seem to shake and I just don't know what to do and that's why I'm writing to you and maybe it's time that I wrote you the lines that come from so deep in my heart Like how the light that shines in your eyes has followed you down from the stars But maybe I'm fooling myself once again But maybe this time I won't have to pretend Yeah maybe my dreams will come true That's why I'm writing to you Please help my dreams to come true.

YOU CAN’T GO HOME AGAIN Well there ain't been much to laugh about since they came and took away my innocence and broke the seal on my naivety. When she promises to write I feel the poison in her pen it all just goes to show the world you can't go home again And when daddy's little angel takes her final curtain call she asks of those around here just to catch her when she falls and me I'm still outside and flying well into the ground with a memory now burned inside a smile that can't be found. Well I see right through your disguise to your world of secrets and lies to the things that you don't realize Well I guess that I just can't go on if you won't be my friend with a promise knelt before you till we reach the bitter end We'll go dancing in the graveyard as the echoes sweetly so echoes sweetly sound Are you only seeing half the light when your world is upside down?

Days Go By 03:38
DAYS GO BY Things are moving faster and there's times I can't recall, never been like this before And don't forget to tell me when I'm headed for a fall cause I can't see the way anymore But if you don't wanna tell me maybe I don't wanna know Oh no this hasn't been my year, lost some friends along the way But they'll be coming back as long as you and I are here to help them out along the way As the Days Go By and the sunlight fades into night Happy ever after so the story always goes.. we'll just have to wait and see but somewhere in the distance when that lonesome whistle blows loud enough to stir the breeze Then we'll just have to move along and get ourselves away As the days go by and the sunlight fades into night into night We'll try it, try it one more time must be getting close by now To where it all seems so sublime there's no need to know just how it all seems so together when it's falling all apart As the days go by and the sunlight fades into night into night.

Longing 03:44
Longing Will the passage of time see the sky turn to rain? Hopes turn to fear and our joy turn to pain? Down from the mountain, far from the sun, away from the laughter that heal everyone After the nights rain has taken its toll with moon glow and shadow to comfort my soul. Yearning in silence and desperation, come to my call oh mysterious one! Twisting and turning in search of a love, thoughts to to feelings I've only dreamt of Will the day ever hold me as still as the night that falls on me gently and makes it all right? Still I hold to this longing where nothing gets through tell me the answer I once thought I knew. When will this each bring a love to my heart? When will desire that burns through the stars Look to the rays of the new rising day When will you show me and point out the way Will we look to the sun and the moon and the rain to sweep through the sorrow healing our pain? Still I hold to this longing where nothing gets through tell me the answer I once thought I knew.

See Me Again 03:33
See Me Again: Another time will I see your face? Smiles and tears and a gentle grace? Please tell me all if this is true. I miss the breeze blowing in your hair I miss my heart beating from your stare But most of all I miss you. Come back and see me again When will my loneliness end? You're hedging bets of uncertainty, and falling blind to what others see You stand to fall right to the ground Where others fail you could stand so tall, and I will do anything at all To help it all come around. Come back and see me again When will my loneliness end? You're flying high like a whippoorwill Into a dream that you can't fulfill Don't let on more than you know And let me know when you've had your fun I'll tell the world that you're on the run It's such a shame to see you go. Come back and see me again When will my loneliness end?

ANOTHER MOMENT On a sad and lonely ordinary afternoon Someone came along and took me all too soon. What was I to do? Disappeared from view, far away from Everyone I knew. When will this be over caught me wondering aloud You stay the same forever buried in your shroud, standing up so proud, Preaching to the crowd, well within your cloud of truth . And then it falls away so far so fast. I didn't think that it Would last for very long. And as you stand alone and time flies past Another moment on the run. Time begins to draw upon the moments close at hand Let's go a little further help me understand. None of this was planned, lines are in the sand. Carry me into another land. And then it falls away so far so fast. I didn't think that it Would last for very long. And as you stand alone and time flies past Another moment come and gone.

Fortress 04:21
FORTRESS Tell me why I can't get you to stay 'neath the sun that could brighten my day. You didn't know what you'd want me to say You didn't know it would get you someday. You told me not to worry, you told me it's ok, I see you built your fortress anyway. Let the daylight shine through your hair And take this soul of hopeless despair From the hands of the angel that's torn from The arms of a heaven that mourns. And darkness now grows over the stillness of the night I see you take your fortress to the light. If you could teach me not to care Then I'd take you most anywhere But I don't think it's gonna work out Quite that way tonight Go away don't look in my eyes I don't need another surprise Tell me will we be found when it all Comes back around? I didn't need your beauty, I sure don't need your pain Will we stand to lose our fortress in the rain? If you could teach me not to care Then I'd take you most anywhere But I don't think it's gonna work out Quite that way tonight

Miss Misery 03:16
MISS MISERY I'll fake it through the day With some help from johnny walker red Send the poison rain down the drain To put bad thoughts in my head Two tickets torn in half And a lot of nothing to do Do you miss me, miss misery Like you say you do? A man in the park Read the lines in my hand Told me i'm strong Hardly ever wrong i said man you mean You had plans for both of us That involved a trip out of town To a place i've seen in a magazine That you left lying around I don't have you with me but I keep a good attitude Do you miss me, miss misery Like you say you do? I know you'd rather see me gone Than to see me the way that i am But i am in the life anyway Next door the tv's flashing Blue frames on the wall It's a comedy of errors, you see It's about taking a fall To vanish into oblivion Is easy to do And i try to be but you know me I come back when you want me to Do you miss me miss misery Like you say you do? Songwriters: SMITH, STEVEN P.
