Track Name: One Man
Two hands to help me hold
Two feet to help me walk
One mind to help me think
Two eyes to watch the clock
I am just one man
That is plain to see
One man in the world
One man who is weak

It’s not about what I can do
Or what I have done
It’s not about what I have lost
Or what I have won
It’s not a price I had to pay
It’s a choice I had to make

Two hands to put to work
Two feet to get me there
One heart that lets me feel
Two eyes to see what’s fair
But I am just one man
Trying to do things right
One man in the world
One man with a light

It starts with one man

One man
Track Name: Miracle
I’m down and out
I need repair
Can you fix my broken stare
I sit in your plastic chair
With plastic face and fake wire hair
Make me beautiful
Make me fair
At any cost, I don’t care
I don’t care

I’m crooked and cracked
I need some glue
I’ve got to fix my shattered view
I look out my electric tube
At electric sky and electric moon
Make them believable
Make them true
Whatever it takes, do what you have to do
What you have to do

I need a miracle
Someone to catch my fall
And help me through
I need a miracle
Love unconditional
I need you

I’m ripped and torn
I need some thread
I’ve got to sew my broken head
I lay down in my proverbial bed
Of which I’ve made and now must tread
I drink the wine
I break the bread
To a miracle
To a miracle of crimson red

I need you
Track Name: You Would Do The Same
Hold me close now baby doll
Don’t you know I’m about to fall
You wreck me with your ways so sweet
However am I blessed that we did meet

And there’s no better way
Than to love you

I will hold your hand, when you feel afraid
By your side I’ll stand, in the pouring rain
Walk across this land just to ease your pain
As time turns to sand, I know
You would do the same

Miles apart or eye-to-eye
The space between won’t change my mind
Hear my words and see my ways
I bare my soul in all I do and say

I will hold your hand, when you feel afraid
By your side I’ll stand, in the pouring rain
Walk across this land just to ease your pain
As time turns to sand, I know
You would do the same
Track Name: What Happened To Our Love
Moving along
Holding your hand
Humming a tune from the radio band
Wouldn't you like to
Go back where we've been to
When we were much younger
And every dream came true

Times they have changed
Faces have aged
We're not the same
As we were the first day
Couldn't we try to
Be how we used to
When this love was younger
And all that I wanted was you

All these things that I want back
I watch them slipping through the cracks
As I let go of the past
I just thought this love would last
And it ended all too fast
What happened to our love
What happened to our love

Gone are the days
Of your lovely face
Your disarming grace
Was it all a waste
I try hard not to
Forget what we've been through
Cause you've got a hold on my heart babe

Driving alone
I hear our song
I wish you were here
Singing along
Track Name: As Long As It Takes
I wait for hours
Which turn into days
Now it’s been a week
And still no change

What’s the use
Am I just wasting time
Hoping that you’d change your mind

Well I’ll wait five more minutes
Five more minutes just in case
Though I know these five minutes
Will turn into five more days
All I’m trying to tell you
What I’m really trying to say
Is I’ll be waiting
As long as it takes

You’ve got thick skin
To keep hurt at bay
I get too close
You push me away
Track Name: Don't Go Away
Our time is standing still
A hundred hours I could kill
Watching you just watching me
Both pretending we can’t see

As pretty as a picture
Inside a perfect frame
I wanna hold your hand
But I don’t know your name

Don’t go away
Please say you’ll stay
Tell me your name
Don’t go away

You’re playing with your hair
Oh I can’t help but stare
I try to catch your eye
Is it me or are you shy

Will I ever see you again
Will I ever see you again
Maybe not and that’s alright
It was nice to meet you anyway
Track Name: Tears
Oh, someone’s broken her heart
Now she’s left here to cry on her own
Oh, she let someone into her heart
And now she’s all alone

And I would offer, my shoulder
To comfort her head
And I would offer, offer my hands
To hold her instead
Oh and I just can’t leave her
All alone when she’s crying that way
All I want is to wipe the tears
And take all her heartache away

Oh, she tries to forget
But it’s taking a toll on her heart
Oh, she just wants to be loved
She just wants to go back to the start

I offer my shoulder to comfort your head
I offer my hands to hold you instead

Oh and I just can’t leave you
All alone when you’re crying that way
All I want is to wipe the tears
And take all your heartache away
Track Name: The River Song
Come sit by the riverside
Rest your hands in mine
Lay down your weary head
Close your eyes and go to bed
So we can dream
Of places unseen
Taking a trip inside our minds

We close our eyes and drift away
All of our troubles start to fade
We’re in a perfect made up place
Where everything’s fine and we’re okay
There’s no such thing as time or space
When we close our eyes and drift away

Come sit by the old oak tree
Come and sit with me
We will watch the hours pass
Putting our busy minds to rest
So we can dream
Of places unseen
Taking a trip inside our minds

We close our eyes and drift away
All of our troubles start to fade
We’re in a perfect made up place
Where everything’s fine and we’re okay
There’s no such thing as time or space
When we close our eyes and drift away
Away, away
Drift away
Away, away, away

Come sit by the riverside
Track Name: One By One
4:00am, my mind finds no rest
Body’s tired and still fully dressed
Sleep’s a long time coming
Though I’m lying in my bed
I’m kept awake by the thoughts in my head
In my head

4:01 been up all night
Eyes are heavy and closing tight
But sleep’s not under my roof
There’s no room for it to stay
All my crowded thoughts
Are just getting in the way

Tangled up and broken
With no place to go
I’ve got to work them out nice and slow
Take my time and bite my tongue
I’ve gotta to work them out
One by one
Work them out one by one

4:14 things start to slow
Emotions high while movement’s low
I pray for a little peace
And some sleep would be nice too
I just ride it out
What else am I to do

12:00pm and change and a change has come over me
All my racing thoughts have seemed to leave me be
I thank God for the peace
And again for the sleep
I start to get ready for the day ahead of me
Ahead of me
Ahead of me
What will I see
Track Name: Do You Know How Much I Love You
You’ve gone away
Returned to home
And now I’m left here all alone
Without you
Feeling blue
It’s true

Do you know how much I love you
Won’t place anyone above you
When you’re gone I’m thinking of you
Do you know how much I love you
Do you know
How much I love you

Day and night
Night and day
Oh the hours pass away
Without you
I feel blue
I do

Don’t stay away for too long darling
Remember to write everyday
And when you return
I’ll be waiting here for you
When you come
When you come back to stay

Do you know how much I love you
