Track Name: If I Saw You
Well I still have your picture
In that golden frame next to my bed
and every night, before I sleep
Oh, I lay it next to my head
and every morning, when I wake up
Oh, I die death anew
and if I saw you, I wouldn't know what to do

If there are places
that I could go to forget
Drive you away, from my memory
but I haven't found them yet
and I leave my room with the fear
that I'll end up in your way
and if I saw you, I wouldn't know what to say

Well if I saw you with someone I knew
I'd surely feel betrayed
and if I saw you all by yourself
I'd wonder where he had strayed

Oh now, I still have your picture
and I've rehearsed it through and through
but I'd probably lose my head
If I Saw You

Well if I saw you with someone I knew
I'd surely feel betrayed
and if I saw you all by yourself
I'd wonder where he had strayed

Oh now, I still have your picture
and I've rehearsed it through and through
but I'd probably lose my head
If I Saw You

Track Name: Better Things to Do
You, are looking better every day
Ever since you went away and left me crying here
with nothing left to say

And I, I'm just trying to fill my time
'til you walk by just to remind me you once loved me
Your smile repeats the crime

Despite your cool indifference
You get a kick from running me through
You'd think that you'd find better things to do

Me, I just tried to close my eyes
when you bring a new one by and try to bait me
or just to see me cry

Does he, know just what he's found
One kiss will spin him 'round to try to see you
Will he like what he's found

Despite your protestations
A twisted knife just seems to suit you
You'd think that you'd find better things to you

It becomes apparent to me
(You should have known it from the start)
You won't be satisfied 'til I'm back on my knees

And me, I just try to live each day
and stay out of your way and not reminded
of bygone, better days

Despite your cool indifference
You get a kick from running me through
You'd think that you'd find better things to do

Track Name: It's Pronounced Love
Your face betrays you, you seem to like it here
Your protestations just don't ring true
I see your eyes, the light is shining there
You demure, you say I don't know you

The evening wanes but not the conversation
I like your laughter and you like mine too
It's not the drink but now your having trouble
Saying clearly what you want to

Just put your lips together and let me help
It's Pronounced Love, It's Pronounced Love

That look of shock and complete denial
We've barely met and yet you know it's true
You text your friends, you check your online files
You leave the table but you come back soon

All that's left is to just admit it
Your great reserve won't see you through
It's not so hard, just four measly letters
The world won't end if you follow through

Just put your lips together and let me help
It's Pronounced Love, It's Pronounced Love

Ich liebe dicht, oh and je t'adore
Yo te quiero yeah, you know it's true
Speak to me in any language
You know you want to, yeah you know you do

Just put your lips together and let me help
It's Pronounced Love, It's Pronounced Love

Track Name: Pull My String
Well since I met you baby
life has changed so many ways
Uncle Sam he packing
'cause I could not obey
but when you snap your fingers
I come crawling on all fours
I'm surely not the man I was before

Well you brought some needed discipline into my crazy life
You tied up all my weekends
and you killed my Saturday nights

Now when I think I've had enough and I know what to do
You pull my string and I come right back to you

Well sometimes I think I've had enough
I can't take you no more
I pack up all my things but I never make the door

You've got some kind of hold on me
I'd break it if I could
Every time I say forever, I'm knockin' on some wood

and when I think I've had enough and I know what to do
You pull my string and I come right back to you

Track Name: Really Lasts
Now every once in awhile
I walk out of the door
'Cause I thought the grass was greener than it ever was before

Now every time I find
It's just a passing thing
You know I just can't stand myself and the misery I bring

And I can't wait, to get back to you
to hold you in my arms is all I ask
'Cause you're the only thing that really lasts

Every night I try
to find someone to chase
Another fool attempt at thinking you could be replaced

Cause everyday I wake up
and things are still the same
with memories of how I got us tangled in this game

And I can't wait, to get back to you
to hold you in my arms is all I ask
'Cause you're the only thing that really lasts

Track Name: When You Walk in the Room
Well I can feel a new expression on my face
I can feel a strong sensation taking place
I can hear the guitars playing lovely tunes
Every time that you walk in the room

I close my eyes for a second and pretend it's me you want
Meanwhile I'll try to act so nonchalant
Trumpets sound and I hear thunder boom
Every time that you walk in the room

Maybe it's a dream come true
Walkin' right along side of you
Wish I could tell you how much I care
But I only have the nerve to stare

I can feel a-something pounding in my brain
Just any time that someone speaks your name
I see a summers night and with a magic moon
Every time that you walk in room

Track Name: Slave to Katy
I see you making small talk, watch your lips move know the way you walk
I can close my eyes and paint you from memory
I duck away and out of sight, can't take a face to face tonight
But I can watch your shadow, feel your body on the breeze

I must have been careless, ended up where I knew you'd be
I could've been careless, I could've been hypnotized but maybe you see

I'm a slave to Katy, the shards of my heart are splattered on my sleeve
There's not much left and I owe it all to Katy
She takes a little piece of me every time she leaves

I see you face like a magnet, drawn to you but where I don't know yet
You're the sun in my morning, you're my center of gravity
Where am I now and where are you? You were here I've lived in that perfume
It's way passed love now, something else has got a hold on me

I must have been careless, ended up where I knew you'd be
I could've been careless, I could've been hypnotized but maybe you see

I'm a slave to Katy, the shards of my heart are splattered on my sleeve
There's not much left and I owe it all to Katy
She takes a little piece of me every time she leaves

I thought I was beholden to the usual suspects
Jealousy, envy, and lies
Now I know that my soul's not my own
Every time I look in my eyes

I must have been careless, ended up where I knew you'd be
I could've been careless, I could've been hypnotized but maybe you see

I'm a slave to Katy, the shards of my heart are splattered on my sleeve
There's not much left and I owe it all to Katy
She takes a little piece of me every time she leaves

Track Name: Go!
Well I can still remember
the confusion when you said I was so yesterday
Never did I think that I
would be used, abused, and tossed away

But now you're standing here with you back against the door
Despite your crazy second thoughts perhaps there's something more

And Go! Go-oh-oh-oh, I tried so hard to reach you
but you let it slip away
Please, don't waste my time, time won't change both our minds, come on baby
You'd better pack your things and Go

There never was a time
I didn't try to please you in every way (oh no)
If that's not dedication to you
then I don't know what love is anyway

And now you're calling me a hundred times and more
No amount of lovin' voicemails leads me to your door

And Go! Go-oh-oh-oh, I tried so hard to reach you
but you let it slip away
Please, don't waste my time, time won't change both our minds, come on baby
You'd better pack your things and Go

Go! Get you gone and get you on your way
Any thing we had to talk about was wasted on the way

And Go! Go-oh-oh-oh, I tried so hard to reach you
but you let it slip away
Please, don't waste my time, time won't change both our minds
You made your decision
You'd better pack your things and Go

Track Name: Come In Out of the Cold
You used to think that maybe you'd be just fine
But despite the reassuring talk, you just can't quiet your mind
and you can try to tell yourself that you did nothing wrong
but that singer just won't sing along

She would've been about 13 years old
You never thought what seemed the right decision then
Would take this kind of toll
The farther that you carry your pain down the road
The harder and the heavier to carry that load
You need to let go and surrender and I'll be your home

'Cause it's no use, beating yourself up
The old you is already gone
I'll leave a light on when you're ready to reclaim your soul
and come on in out of the cold

In your darkest moments when your exit's assured
but for another day you force yourself to turn
another face to the world
and make it through while you swing from the end of your rope
You can turn to me when it's just too hard to cope
You need to let go and surrender and I'll be your hope

'Cause it's no use, beating yourself up
The old you is already gone
I'll leave a light on when you're ready to reclaim your soul
and come on in out of the cold

And you can be forgiven
Just bring a pure heart and ask

'Cause it's no use, beating yourself up
The old you is already gone
I'll leave a light on when you're ready to reclaim your soul
and come on in out of the cold

Track Name: Thing About Me
Well every time I hear the ringin' of the ice cream truck
I run and grab a gallon for my little buttercup
I'm doing everything just trying to please
'Cause I love you baby and I know you got a thing about me

500 miles down and 40 to go
Nothing's gonna keep me from making your show
I do 65 down your dead end street
'Cause I love you baby and I know you got a thing about me

Baby, baby, baby now I love you true
and in your arms the place I should be
Got no money and I got less sense
So why you spending your time with me

You call me to come, wherever I am
Nothing gonna keep me from being your man
You're the only one I know who can set me free
'Cause I love you baby and I know you got a thing about me

Track Name: I Wanna Be a Beach Bum
Well I swore I'd never work a day in my life
But now I'm working 9 to 5 and I've even got a wife
but now I'd give it all away
for the sand and a tan and some body surfing waves

(Woah-oh) Oh I wanna be a beach bum
I wanna live in the sand and be my own man
Woah-oh, oh I wanna be a beach bum

Now the girls in bikinis all look real, real fine
When they wear those low cut dresses you can check out their lines
But the traffic's trapped me in my car
for the hours I could get my own lines at Belmar

(Woah-oh) Oh I wanna be a beach bum
I wanna live in the sand and be my own man
Woah-oh, oh I wanna be a beach bum

I don't wanna be trapped in opportunity land
I wanna hit the beach and get a Copper Tone tan

I wanna prove that my ranting and raving's just not just talk
I wanna throw it all away and make my home underneath the boardwalk
and I'll be as happy as can be
with the sand and the waves and the sun beatin' down on me

(Woah-oh) Oh I wanna be a beach bum
I wanna live in the sand and be my own man
Woah-oh, oh I wanna be a beach bum

Track Name: Hey Santa
Santa, Hey Santa
My little girl wants everything
Santa, Hey Santa
The dreams, the hopes, the diamond rings

It's been so long since I believed in you
I'm gonna need your magic to make my baby's dreams come true

Santa, Hey Santa
My little boy wants everything
Santa, Hey Santa
The trucks, the trains, the finer things

It's been so long since I believed in you
I'm gonna need your magic to make my baby's dreams come true

Hey now Santa, make it right, make it down my chimney tonight and
we won't have a Merry Christmas without you

Santa we've been good all year long
Sweet as angels, we have done no wrong
Good 'til Christmas is our solemn vow
Santa do you understand my situation now

Santa, Hey Santa
My little world has everything
Santa, Hey Santa
The dreams, the hope, the joy you bring

It's been so long since I believed in you
This year I won't need your magic to make my baby's dreams come true

Hey now Santa, it's alright if you can't make my chimney tonight and
We'll still have a Merry Christmas
We'll still have a Merry Christmas
We'll still have a Merry Christmas without you
