Track Name: How Bout Now
I need what you have/and when I take your hand/you show it to me/show it to me/but my mind gets in the way/always thinking of what to say/I'm a lonely guy/just trying to get it right//

But there is no perfect time for me and you to make it/we have everything we need we just have to take it/How bout now//

See the truth is I get nervous when we're alone/but I try not to let that show cuz I know/that I just can't let you inside/now's not the right time/and I'm getting old, getting old//

But there is no perfect time for me and you to make it/we have everything we need we just have to take it/neither one of us knows what to do so let's just fake it/and girl I've got to open this heart of mine sometime/How bout now//

Track Name: This Way Is Up
Just look at my life stuck in a rut/every change I tried well no such luck/and I guess that I believed in luck a little too much/so much I couldn't make my own/I had an excuse for everything/to rationalize was my favorite game/cuz when things aren't my fault well I don't have to do anything/

but oh some nights/I see the signs/they say//

This way is up/yeah today you're gonna get out/you'll escape this shell you've built yourself//

Just look at my life watching the clock/the hours roll by but I feel stuck/it always seems like I can never finish what I start/I'm not gonna call, why even try/you're prob'ly out there having fun with some other guy/at least that's what I tell myself to say goodbye/

but oh some nights/I see the signs/they say//

This way is up/yeah today you're gonna get out/you'll escape this shell you've built yourself//

Track Name: Now the Monsters
There's a searing breath on the back of my neck/and I can't keep my raging fears in check/the last thing you said was so hard to hear/now I'm lonely and I can't shed a tear/my unrighteous hands touch this cold window pane/my holiest memories are forever stained/now every single hour in this restless night/against these beasts I'll test my might//

What if I said I'd fail here/without you to light my way/no more imaginary friends/just me alone inside my head/father turned his face away/how much longer can I stay/and I'm standing here so weak/and now the monsters/they come my way//

You're just a shadow of a photograph now/and these cynical voices are growing ever louder/when there's no answer from the complacent stars/I'll think of you when I tend to all my scars//

What if I said I'd fail here/without you to light my way/no more imaginary friends/just me alone inside my head/father turned his face away/how much longer can I stay/and I'm standing here so weak/and now the monsters/they come my way//

Track Name: The Rain
There's a young man never leaves this town/yeah he's always around/says he likes the colors of the summer/but I think it's the girl that he's found/says she paints the sky blue/and when she's near/she makes the sunshine last/they walk together oh so slowly/cuz they don't wanna grow up too fast//

She's like the rain (and it's just going on) falling softly on his face (and it's just going on)/and when she whispers his name (they don't wanna go home) she makes sense of the pain//

There's a young man/he just left this town with no money to spare/he says that this place crushes his dreams/they're better followed elsewhere/he's always quick with facts and figures/but his feelings are numb/and when he's faced with things he can't process/you know he's just gonna run//

He prays for rain (and it's just going on) to fall softly on his face (and it's just going on)/someone to whisper his name (cuz he wants to go home) and make sense of the pain//

And he wants to go home
Track Name: Like Fire
You always knew where I was it's true/You always knew that I needed to be understood/so now with a swing of your hips I'm glued/and now with a brush of your cheek on my cheek I feel it too//

You dance like fire/moving desire/and I'm caught in the eye of the storm/when we move just as one/while the weight of the world hits the ground/now cracked and torn//

You never asked me to change this time/you there's no deceit in your eyes, but there's deceit in my eyes that hides/now as you sway in my arms well I know that you're not quite mine/now in the heat of your breath I can forget it all for a short time//

You dance like fire/moving desire/and I'm caught in the eye of the storm/when we move just as one/while the weight of the world hits the ground/now cracked and torn//

You dance like fire (won't you dance, won't you dance like)/
You dance like fire (won't you dance, won't you dance like)/
You dance like fire (won't you dance, won't you dance like)/
Yeahhhhhh!

You dance like fire/moving desire/and I'm caught in the eye of the storm/when we move just as one/while the weight of the world hits the ground/now cracked and torn//
Track Name: Old Enough
I spent most of yesterday packing old clothes into bags/holding photos in my hands/of back when love made no demands/

But I always did/you know this well/you say I'm wrong well do tell//

You said I'm right where I needed to be (and it's right here where I am)/when some dreams fall like last year's leaves/they always do so the new ones grow/you're old enough, now you know//

I spent most of yesterday folding the paper to make it straight/and when it seemed like I was right/well then my anger just bred the fights/

That's where I was/you know this well/I fell into a dream, I had to break the spell

You said I'm right where I needed to be (and it's right here where I am)/when some dreams fall like last year's leaves/they always do so the new ones grow/you're old enough, you're old enough...

You said I'm right where I needed to be/some dreams fall like last year's leaves/they always do so the new ones grow/you're old enough, now you know//

You said I'm right where I needed to be (and it's right here where I am)/when some dreams fall like last year's leaves/they always do so the new ones grow/you're old enough, now you know//
