Track Name: Unsure
You say impossible, but you know I ain't a liar
You feel intangible, but you feel my desire for you

Screaming from the depths of my soul
I'm there where you are & I won't let go
Still I know that you doubt
And I hear you thinking...

"I'm just a little unsure
I'm just a little unsure
I'm a paradox & you're intoxicating
Don't it seem to show that
I'm just a little unsure?
One foot in & one out of the door...
And I try to run,
But there's no one who loves me more than you
You are never unsure..."

You give your life away; and sometimes, not to me
But when you do I take it anyway and
Mend the pieces carefully, again & again

And I'm screaming from the depths of my soul
I'm there where you are & I won't let go
Still I know you're thinking...

"I'm just a little unsure
I'm just a little unsure
I'm a paradox & you're intoxicating
Don't it seem to show that
I'm just a little unsure?
One foot in & one out of the door...
And I try to run,
But there's no one who loves me more than you..."

Hoping I can change your "maybe"
Everyday, my love will save you
Don't you know I'll never fail to follow thru
If you make me your everything

'Cause I'm screaming from the depths of my soul
I'm there where you are & I won't let go
You've gotta know, you've gotta know yeah
Screaming from the depths of my soul
I'm there where you are & I won't let go
Still I know you're thinking...

"I'm just a little unsure
I'm just a little unsure
I'm a paradox & you're intoxicating
Don't it seem to show that
I'm just a little unsure?
One foot in & one out of the door...
And I try to run,
But there's no one who loves me more than you
You are never unsure..."
Track Name: My Heart Still Beats The Same
Don't tell me that you feel the same
I think about you every day
I can tell by just the way you say my name
Although I still do find it strange,
My heart keeps beating anyway

Time just doesn't heal everything
I've still got broken strings
That you held in my heart
The rhythm changes each time it breaks,
But thank God, with each breath I take,
My heart still beats the same

I knew the moment you moved on
I've always seemed to get it wrong
Left here just to get along all on my own
The only thing that hasn't changed
Is my heart beating every day

Time just doesn't heal everything
I've still got broken strings
That you held in my heart
The rhythm changes each time it breaks,
But thank God, with each breath I take,
My heart still beats the same

Keeps beating, my heart
Keeps beating...

Time just doesn't heal everything
I've still got broken strings
That you held in my heart
The rhythm changes each time it breaks,
But thank God, with each breath I take,
My heart still beats the same

Keeps beating, my heart
Keeps beating...

My heart still beats the same
Track Name: Other-Girl Syndrome
I am dying
I have a disease
Take heed before you get too close to me,
I have a syndrome
My symptoms are silent
And I have no sickness you can see
So just one thing,
Before you get too close to me, you should know

That you'll have to find a cure for me
(You are the cure)
Say what you mean & do what you say,
Stick around & never go away
'Cause I lose a breath each time I'm left
For someone & I become the other girl
I've got that other-girl syndrome

"Why?" You might ask...
Well, I have no idea, I've got nothing
Maybe I have a weak immunity to falling
And I don't fall easy
But trippin's made me fall hard
So take a knee, if you dare to rescue me
Listen closely,

You'll have to find a cure for me
(You are the cure)
Say what you mean & do what you say,
Stick around & never go away
'Cause I lose a breath each time I'm left
For someone & I become the other girl
Track Name: Bleeding Red, Beating Blue
I pick up the phone as I battle alone
With reasonable doubt
I want to hear you, but can't sort the fear
That's buried in my heart
And now you're in my head, so I take a breath,
Start a staring match with your name,
Try to find the words to conceal the hurt
That we both know still remains

I'm never sure where it's supposed to go
Between you & I
I know I want you, I fear it will haunt me
'Til the day I die
Still it never ceases, incomprehensive,
Why can't I figure it out?
Nothing's black & white when there's blinding light
In the colors of desire

And I wonder
If the colors will fade
In the heart of letting go...
Bleeding red, beating blue

What would you do if I sang to you
All the things I never said?
Is it better to know
Or to think that I never loved you instead?

And I wonder
If the colors will fade
In the heart of letting go...
Bleeding red, beating blue

In the colors, in the colors of desire,
Bleeding red & beating blue
In the heart makes purple wounds
Bleeding red, beating blue
Track Name: Second Street
There's always something new
You didn't see before
There's always something familiar
The day-to-day will switch to night,
“Shine of the moon” comes out to play
And every time you go will never be the same
It's mighty tame on a Tuesday
And on a holiday parade,
You're bound to run into someone

Come Saturday, no telling what you'll see,
Who you'll meet
One might find it bizarre
Or one block of art on
Second Street

If you can't find it nowhere else,
You'll find it here
All colors, sizes & faces
You can people watch & write a story
Based on what you see
The change of scenery is sure from door to door:
The quaint Aroma Di Roma,
From Open Sesame, La Creperie,
To all the little holes in the wall you love

Come Saturday, no telling what you'll see,
Who you'll meet
One might find it bizarre
Or one block of art on
Second Street

Oh, come Saturday, no telling what you'll see,
Who you'll meet
One might find it bizarre
Or one block of art on
Second Street
Track Name: Kiss Me Goodbye
I just can't help myself;
The things that I say
So right, 'cause you love them
So wrong, 'cause they entice you to stay
And I know you don't want to --
You do, but I know that you don't
'Cause you know I want to be with you,
But you know that I won't

Kiss me...
Kiss me goodbye
I can't make it right, love
Kiss me goodbye

Please, stop saying, "sorry"
It was never your fault
And I cannot forgive myself
For how I keep on breaking, breaking your heart
Tell me, how come the best things with us
Are so often the worst?
You're the best I want to save for last
And you'll always be the first

Kiss me...
Kiss me goodbye
I can't make it right, love
Kiss me goodbye
Kiss me tonight
I know it's selfish, but I
Feel like I'm losing my mind
Kiss me, oh...

When will I abandon my pride?
Give you the chance to have new life?

Kiss me...
Kiss me goodbye
I can't make it right, love
Kiss me goodbye
Kiss me tonight
I promise I will try
To put "us" out of my mind
Kiss me goodbye

Said I'll keep you in my mind
Just kiss me goodbye...
Track Name: Dear Heart
Dear hurting heart,
You can stop hurting me
It ain't no fun being here
Between you & somebody else

Dear lonely heart,
Please stop reminding me
It ain't no fun reminiscing
When missing reminds me I'm alone

But oh, my dear, dear heart,
I can't forget you
Oh, my dear, dear heart...
Even when I try

Dear aching heart,
This just ain't pretty now
All of the memories of love lost
Have come back to haunt me once again

Dear healing heart,
Could you take any longer?
Is there any way to recover
From losing a lover anyway?

But oh, my dear, dear heart,
I can't forget you
Oh, my dear, dear heart...

Tell me where to find you & I will be waiting
Tell me where to find you
And I will be waiting for you…
Kissing heartache goodbye
Track Name: I Choose You
Mama told me to find someone
I could call my best friend
Never thought that I would find it in you,
But here you are

Oh, and you want it to be sure
Well honey, there's no guarantee of certainty
We are sojourners just waiting for the chance
For Love to give direction

After all that's said & done,
Even if I'm not one,
I want you to know that
It were up to me,
If I could choose with whom to be,
I'd choose you
I choose you

I don't always know where your heart lies,
But I'm hoping to find it
Everybody knows your steady hand
Makes you who you are

Oh, and you want it to be sure
Well honey, there's no guarantee of certainty
We are sojourners just waiting for the chance
For Love to give direction

After all that's said & done,
Even if I'm not one,
I want you to know that
It were up to me,
If I could choose with whom to be,
I'd choose you
I choose you
Track Name: Why Are You So Beautiful?
Take me down
Where no one's gone before
Break me down
Like no one's done before
You know me
Like no one's ever known
Love, you show me
Like no one's ever shown

Why are you so beautiful to me?

How I hear
The beauty in your voice
Feel you near
You are my only choice
You make me smile
And you don't say a word
And your silence,
Best thing I've ever heard

Why are you so beautiful to me?

Make me cry
You bring me tears of joy
I give my life
From now on it's all yours
I trust you
You are my heart's delight
So I'll give you
All that I have inside

Why are you so beautiful to me?

I'll never understand why you chose me
And why you are so beautiful
Why are you so beautiful?
Why are you so beautiful to me?
Track Name: Sexy Woman
Think back to when you were a child,
What did you want to grow up to be?
Look around, look at yourself now,
Is that who you thought you would see?
Whoever you are, look at who that girl is now
I'd wager today that she would want to say,

"I'm comfortable in my own skin,
I'm beautiful, beginning within,
And that's what you call
A true sexy woman"

All the things, all the twists & the turns,
All the mountains that you've had to climb,
They've all brought you here,
To this fork in the road,
Where you get to choose left or right
Wherever you are, even if you once were lost,
Follow the signs to the Way,
To the place where you can say,

"I'm comfortable in my own skin,
I'm beautiful, beginning within,
And that's what you call
A true sexy woman"

I wait for the day that we can declare,

"I'm comfortable in my own skin,
I'm beautiful, beginning within,
And that's what you call
A true sexy woman"
Track Name: Catalyst
I can't put the pieces back together
No matter what I do
I just keep on holding to
The same old things that won't leave me alone
Why I try so hard to fix what's broken,
I guess I'll never know --
I keep trying even though
I'd swear that I'd surrendered long ago

Break my heart, break my heart,
Go on & break it again
Break it open, mend & heal it
To the core, to the core,
So I can feel it again
'Cause only you can bring it back to life
No one else but you

Round & round, I chase my past in circles
A shadow in my eyes
Why can't I realize
The Grace that saved me, paved the way for light
2 steps forward, 1 step going backward
Is how it's gonna go
If I can't trust in you
It's fear that keeps me walking by my sight

Break my heart, break my heart,
Go on & break it again
Break it open, mend & heal it
To the core, to the core,
So I can feel it again
'Cause only you can bring it back to life
No one else but you
Track Name: Feel You
If I live my life as alone as I feel right now,
If I stumble again & lose my way somehow,
If food loses taste,
If I can't find Your face
Through the haze that has clouded my eyes,
If everything changes, there's only one thing I desire…

All I want is...all I need is…

To feel You...

If all that I know, short of You, turns out to be a lie,
If night turns the daylight
As stars like rain from the sky,
If season switch places,
If familiar faces disappear among the unrecognized,
If everything changes, there's only one thing I desire...

All I want is...all I need is…

To feel You...
