All you have is now what you don't hold up falls down There's nothing in you way It's just a game to play He acts as if he's mad but it's painted over sad And the tears they won't come for you or anyone At first you wanted love next you asked for sweat then you needed blood then you took the death So easy to lie fingers crossed and grin wide You hoped for the best but you knew what was next All you have is now the secrets are all out what you held in your mind Grew to make you blind He acts as if he's dead but he's waiting for is lead to turn to gold or a women he can hold O to let him go cut the cord stop the show He's drifting away and you can't make him stay

Love Song 02:42
This is the way he walks These are the shoes he wears And the subtle expression as he runs his fingers through his hair We're in love, we're in love, we're in love This is his appetite and these are the books he reads the tone of his voice and the poetry he speaks We're in love, we're in love, we're in love We're in love We're in love We're in love... We come together and the panoramic view turns us inside out and then pulls us through I see my reflection in the windows of his eyes He gives new life to every part of me that has died We're in love....

Jaguar 03:55
Your mind a book full of stories Your eyes look but you can't afford me You have a long way to go We'll meet down at our favourite restaurant Where we will order what we think we want The waitress comes she smiles she knows You want to be my lover I want to be your friend It's the same old story again and again You have a long way to go You want to be my lover I want to be your friend It's the same old story again and again

Clean 05:57
I pressed my finger onto the lower vein of the subway map and declared I will live there, fancy that Then the bottom blew out and just a cavity remains with the false pride of a football game I'm one step up with five more to go To the top of the city where the virgin forest grows I have seen the stars fall right from the sky... If I'm wrong, please help me along Sing me the song that leads me to you And know that I will show you everything That I could possibly dream of I've walked this earth, I've gathered dirt And now I'm soiled and worn I will pour myself in, put all my quarters in and spin until I'm clean Underneath the skin we move underground I need oxygen so I float uptown to the center, the lungs, the heart The beating of the drums in central park I take this pulse as my own I am connected to my broken home Chorus The sun goes down and I go to The edge of the city to greet the moon The cross the bridge, stop in the middle, drop five pennies a wish an a little Prayer for everyone Sleeping in their beds This world is so messed up We need all the love we can get

On My Way 04:49
I'm all alone, by the phone I need some place I can go Outside on the street it's much too busy go to the roof then to another climb up higher and higher I'm ready to jump and catch a ride on the wind as it comes in I'm on my way... I rise above the neighborhood That I love, above the towers Above the flowers in the park Above the people making their mark Above the flashing of the lights Above the sirens and all the sight seeing sights I'm free and I fly away I follow the sun each and every day I'm on my way...

The City 03:34
Let's go to the city where all the strangers meet We'll execute decisions and we'll think on our feet And we won't get caught when the music stops If there's no seat for us We'll sing our way up We are right on time Let's go to the city Every one of us We'll be reflections factual and fictional And when the lights goes out and no more water flows And when the sirens shout We'll know where to go We are right on time Let's go to the city We'll feel the earth below if there's no seat for us then we'll go

If you follow me and I don't have a plan Tell me it will be alright as long as we hold hands New York for now It's been three years since I hit this town I've seen the scene I've done the dues I've gotten up when I've fallen down New York for now The subway is a hot and stuffy mobile home full of busy strangers with plans of their own The beggars, the preachers, the business men, the hormone buzzing teens we all live together in one happy family for now When I hear your call I know I am in the right place after all So many empty hands so many that are full Some push it all away and never think to pull Each one wants a stab, to see if they can kill The childhood dream that haunts them still New York for now When you hear my call You'll know you are in the right place after all
