Track Name: Move Mountains
So its all just a waiting game
I hope you still feel the same way as me
I've been waiting for you to roll in
Just like you said time and again
You fight to keep my door open
And I gladly do not knowing when
You'll finally come around here
You're a mystery to me, my dear

Everything has stayed the same
Is there something I could say
To make you come this way

Come closer to me, honey
I can't be long without you
Love makin' makes me crazy
Move mountains with all of the love that we do
Now, baby, don't be lazy
Or I'll move on without you
Love makin' makes me crazy
Move mountains with all of the love that we do
That we do

In the past I've let my guard down
I've messed around with the wrong kind of dude
Someone who cared to much for looks
And mothered too much for his own good
What I want in life is so simple
I'd rather not spend my time unhappy
Listening to the promises you made me
Now follow through with the word you gave me

Nothin' 'bout you needs to change
You just need to come my way
And everything will be okay

Come closer to me, honey
I can't be long without you
Love makin' makes me crazy
Move mountains with all of the love that we do
Now, baby, don't be lazy
Or I'll move on without you
Love makin' makes me crazy
Move mountains with all of the love that we do
That we do

Its more than just a little game
But I still know how to make you scream my name
You'll work the 9 to 5 and I the 1 to 9
And when we both come home
You know we'll feel good just the same
Ambition is our ammunition
To work out the worst conditions that we face
Now let me hear you say yeah
Let me hear you say yeah, yeah
Let me hear you say yeah
Let me year you say yeah

Come closer to me, honey
I can't be long without you
Love makin' makes me crazy
Move mountains with all of the love that we do
Now, baby, don't be lazy
Or I'll move on without you
Love makin' makes me crazy
Move mountains with all of the love that we do
That we do
Track Name: No One Like You
Never thought I could
Ever feel this way
Never thought you'd come as soon as you'd come
Never understood
Coincidence in fate
Well I can stop asking questions 'cause I'm out of the game

The closest I've come to loving someone
Ended in hurt and my heart came undone
But now that you're here my life is clear
And I know that I can love again

There's no one like you
No one who could
Make every dream come true
I'll take my chances
On you 'cause you
Make the world beautiful
Just by being you

So many times I've come
And turned around and run
Was it testing fate that forced me to fall?
Was it a question of faith?
I knew my heart had none
I had to teach myself patience before you could come

You swept me away by showing you'd wait
It wasn't a question of how long I would take
You wept when I hurt and smiled when I found
The courage to give my love again

There's no one like you
No one who could
Make every dream come true
I'll take my chances
On you 'cause you
Make the world beautiful
Just by being you

For the tenderness that you bring me
No substitute
For the memories that you give me
No one but you
Could come through stronger than you
You're there when I'm journeying
Through the darkest kind of blue

There's no one like you
No one who could
Make every dream come true
I'll take my chances
On you 'cause you
Make the world beautiful
Just by being you
Track Name: Outside
Whenever I'm far from home
I get into something so deep
I never thing I would go there
And every time I think I've been there before
It turns out it was just an open door
That's new to me

And then I take a deep breath
And my lungs are filled with air
And the smell of fresh flowers in the morning
Weave into my hair
What more could I ever want
But the sweet inspiration of a new day
Oh, there's nothing to it
Nothing else to do but to go all the way

I know what to do
When the every day starts to get cloudy
I just open up my room
And I go outside
I know what to do
When my mind starts to get all funny on me
I just open up my room
And I go outside

Life, it seems to never let up
Even for a minute, every day I gotta get up
I gotta go here, gotta go there
I gotta keep on climbing those stairs
Don't think for a minute
I could stop 'til its twelve o'clock
And then I gotta go home
And go to bed and wake up
And then I do it all over again

But then I take a deep breath
And my lungs are filled with air
And the smell of fresh flowers in the morning
Weave into my hair
What more could I ever want
But the sweet inspiration of a new day
Oh, there's nothing to it
Nothing else to do but to go all the way

I know what to do
When the every day starts to get cloudy
I just open up my room
And I go outside
I know what to do
When my mind starts to get all funny on me
I just open up my room
And I go outside

Dah-dah, dah-dah, dah-dah, dah-dah
Dah-dah, dah-dah, dah-dah, dah-dah
Dah-dah, dah-dah, dah-dah, dah-dah
Dah-dah, dah-dah, dah-dah, dah-dah

I know what to do
When the every day starts to get cloudy
I just open up my room
And I go outside
I know what to do
When my mind starts to get all funny on me
I just open up my room
And I go outside
You know I go outside, yeah
Track Name: Your Shoes
I know you wanna see me
From over here its clear
You think that I don't notice
The way your eyes are shifting
I'm waitin' on you to
Step up and make your first move
'Cause there are plenty of dudes
Who'd wanna be in your shoes

You know you ought to get me with your best moves, baby
There ain't no other reason but to move my feet
Just come on over with your good foot, baby
You know you ought to make this hour the hour that you set me free

Don't want a conversation
I just want you to move me
There is no time for wastin'
So put your best foot forward
Don't mind your Sunday outfit
Let your sweat drip down your forehead
You know I'll wanna go again
There's just somethin' 'bout your shoes

You know you ought to get me with your best moves, baby
There ain't no other reason but to move my feet
Just come on over with your good foot, baby
You know you ought to make this hour the hour that you set me free

There's just somethin' 'bout your shoes
That has more to do with your attitude
Fill them well and they will do
What dancing shoes are made to do

You know you ought to get me with your best moves, baby
There ain't no other reason but to move my feet
Just come on over with your good foot, baby
You know you ought to make this hour the hour that you set me free
Track Name: Even If
I never asked you to fake your own death
That was something you put on all by yourself
Many miles away from here is where you are
But I still know you

I told you I'd hold on as long as I could
But you don't know the different ways to love

Even if I shouted at you
From the highest mountain tops
You'd still be wonderin'
Where is love?
Where is love?
Even if I swore to you
I'm only here to tell the truth
You'd still be wonderin'
Where is love?
Where is love?

I could always be wrong about you
You're so good at telling me that's how I do
So when I call you on your stuff that's when you fume
And I still know you

I told you I'd hold on as long as I could
But you don't know the different ways to love

Even if I shouted at you
From the highest mountain tops
You'd still be wonderin'
Where is love?
Where is love?
Even if I swore to you
I'm only here to tell the truth
You'd still be wonderin'
Where is love?
Where is love?

You had it in your heart
But you'd rather walk away
Before this could even start
You kept your world
Close to your own
And now you say
You'd rather be alone, oh
How foolish can you be?
You're all that you can see
Is it any wonder
That you don't know the ways of love?

I told you I'd hold on as long as I could
But you don't know the different ways to love

Even if I shouted at you
From the highest mountain tops
You'd still be wonderin'
Where is love?
Where is love?
Even if I swore to you
I'm only here to tell the truth
You'd still be wonderin'
Where is love?
Where is love?
Where is love?
Where is love?
Where is love?
Where is love?
Where is love?
Where is love?
Track Name: For Me
You are the light shining down on me
The cause to smile on rainy days
You make loving love so easy
'Cause you live inside a sweet song
You know the meaning of happy
Its in your nature to be that way
There's no thoughts of doubt in my mind
You are the one

For me
You are the one
For me
Your love is warm like the sun
For me
I think I'm in heaven
'Cause you are the one
For me

Circumstances get in the way
But just one thing remains the same
Its hard to forget your love
'Cause you give it every day
I love your integrity
Loving you comes so naturally
I more than want you, baby
You've got everything I need

For me
You are the one
For me
Your love is warm like the sun
For me, yeah
I think I'm in heaven
No one could ever take your place
'Cause you are the one
For me

Don't stop finding
Words to say
How much love means
To you, you and me
I know what's good
I know what's right
I know what's good
And I know, I know what's right

For me
You are the one
For me
Your love is warm like the sun
For me
I think I'm in heaven
'Cause you are the one
For me

(repeat)
Track Name: Train Ride
It seems like forever
To be on this train ride for so long
I can't even think of
The last time it stopped, I'm so far gone
My dream's come and gone
I don't know how long I've been alone
Now I don't care
Where I am going, as long as I go

Maybe my choices
Have not always been the best for me
But in my defence
I can say that I've gone by what I feel
I make my mistakes
And hope that I can find a way
To reconcile peace
And harmony within myself one day

Now I don't care
Where I am going
As long as I go
And get further from slowing
Don't question why I
Don't have all the answers
I only know
This train ride I've been on
For so long, yeah
Track Name: Good Times in Love
Its been a long time coming
Four seasons gone with the wind
There was nothing sacred 'bout my living
At least, in my own mind
My wheels have started going again
After the thousand circles drawn
With no end to the time
That was spent in the dark
Of the tunnel I was in
But somehow I found a way to begin

The good times in love
The good times in love
Woah, yeah
Oh, yeah

At last I felt my toes touch the sand
All I could see was the way my hair
Played with the beams of light
That flashed through the sea
I was drowning myself in
Somewhere between feeling 'live and dead
I caught the very fear that plagued my heart
It sat like a stone made of glass
And when it broke
I was set free to roam
The places my heart felt I should know

Like the good times in love
The good times in love

I turned my ears off
My head would tell me lies
I traded my town
For isolated time
Sold everything off
I packed all my bags
And I left them all behind

For the good times in love, yeah
The good times love, oh yeah, yeah, yeah
Track Name: Wide-Eyed and In Your Arms
You walked into a transit station
And bought your ticket going one way
You dropped a coin into a man's cup
Before your lifted yourself onto the train
You're sleep-deprived and understated
Keeping to yourself while waiting
For tomorrow to arrive 'cause
That means one less day of passing time

Before you see me
Wide-eyed and in your arms
Before you see me
Fight the urge to take you down
Right in front of everyone around

Your pockets-full of love and incense
You're hoping I remember your smell
You still can see the day when you left
And you dropped my heart down a well
As complicated as you made it
I still collected all the pieces
And locked them in the darkest closet
Struggling to hide my love from you

Until you see me
Wide-eyed and in your arms
Until you see me
Fight the urge to take you down
Right in front of everyone around

Woah, woah, woah, woah
Don't ever leave me again
Its more than what I bargained when I said
I do
Don't ever leave me again
Its more than what I bargained when I said
I do, oh
I do, oh

Until you see me
Wide-eyed and in your arms
Until you see me
Fight the urge to take you down
Right in front of everyone around
