Track Name: Find Love (feat. Joshua Jern)
Find Love and you’ll find the rest of me
Doubt’s thick and it’s gettin tough to see
But if you look through it, It’s a possibility

My phone keeps a buzzin
Why do all these people try to get ahold of me
Can’t the wheelin public try to stop and see
All I wanna do is get down
So don’t you come around
Unless you are prepared to take a deep breath,
Smile as if the coming of us all together can be reality
But can we really see?

Find Love and you’ll find the rest of me
Doubt’s thick and it’s gettin tough to see
But if you look through it, It’s a possibility

Will the train be comin
We’ve been waiting on the platform for an hour or two
We’re getting angry and I wanna sue the soles who are responsible
For puttin all these strangers up into my atmosphere
But are we really here?

Find Love and you’ll find the rest of me
Doubt’s thick and it’s gettin tough to see
But if you look through it, It’s a possibility
Track Name: Not Much Else to Do
Florence is slowly getting used to Humboldt
But she still flinches with each shadow on North Avenue
Now she is cuddled close to Daddy and Piano
She doesn’t seem so sorry that there’s not much else to do

Does she miss her old family
While she happily begs from me
Does she recall her time in jail
How could old Florence be for sale

What is a bloodhound like that doing in the city
The booze and dope fiends on the corner always say hello
Everyone’s always sure to tell her that she’s pretty
Despite her English skills she always seems to know

Walking the block can seem a pain
Especially in October rain
But when she looks at me and smiles
I know she loves me all the while

Florence is slowly getting used to Humboldt
But she still flinches with each shadow on North Avenue
Now she is cuddled close to Daddy and Piano
She doesn’t seem so sorry that there’s not much else to do
Track Name: No Matter How Hard
Ginny what did you go make that deal for
Settle down and life might be a real bore
I might never figure what you’re after
You don’t seem to stress about the answer

You always seem to find love easy
No matter how hard
But it finally found you
Although life might not always be breezy
You gave your heart and in it you’ll find all you need to

Ginny think when we were back in Clevetown
We were witnesses to both ups and downs
I remember all the broken hearted
I must admit I picked up where you started

You always seem to find love easy
No matter how hard
But it finally found you
Although life might not always be breezy
You gave your heart and in it you’ll find all you need to

Ginny don’t you know I look up to you
Lately I’m not sure what I am to do
I’m excited as a brother can be
Can you reveal that he will make you happy

You always seem to find love easy
No matter how hard
But it finally found you
Although life might not always be breezy
You gave your heart and in it you’ll find all you need to
Track Name: Redefine Clean
In the city you can feel the street
Dirt can get to feel good at your feet
So you just redefine clean

People here don’t tell you who you are
When you need to hide out in a bar
You’re a star in good company
You can be just who you are
If you wanna be

In the city everyone gets lost
Either you are bossing or are bossed
You get tossed in the pile with me
What crooked paths we will cross
When we love the city

Hey look now, I am cool
Dontcha think?
I don’t need no school
Just a pad and ink
And all the trouble I find
Is just fuel for the imaginative mind
Stuck in a dream

In the city you can feel the street
Dirt can get to feel good at your feet
So you just redefine clean
Track Name: Back to You
Will you come to me
I can promise you everything you need
If we happen to be misled by greed
Then I’ll come back to you

Am I not enough
Someday you’ll know that nothing else is real
We’ll begin to accept all that we feel
And I’ll come back to you

It’s true
I don’t know what to do
Sometimes
We’re new
Always and then
I’ll come back to you

Do you like it here
I know you say your fingers are still cold
You’re mind tells you that we’re both getting old
So I’ll come back to you

Now we’re looking west
I can follow the hard gaze of your eyes
You deserve to live under clearer skies
And I think I do too

It’s true
I don’t know what to do
Sometimes
We’re new
Always and then
I’ll come back to you

The days go by
And where am I
When life is through
Can I still come to you

Will you come to me
I can promise you everything you need
If we happen to be misled by greed
Then I’ll come back to you
Track Name: Michelle
I’m feeling like it’s Friday afternoon
I’ll have a Blue Moon
Puff, kick back as if I’ve got nothin to do
The sun is creepin through the cracks above
And I am in love
Life can’t knock me even with a steady shove

It’s true – I can live without you
But I don’t live very well
Far as I can tell
But all I can say’s “Michelle you might as well just live with me”

Yesterday you did not know my name
Each day was the same
I was singing to myself and yet you came
Finding me was not so hard to do
Or did I find you in the process of loosening my shoes

It’s true – I can live without you
But I don’t live very well
Far as I can tell
But all I can say’s “Michelle you might as well just live with me”

So if you are in the mood for me
Just let your love free
And you’ll find that we can live in simplicity
Well I have not been known to bet
But if you just let love be love, I think you’ll see we’ll both be set

It’s true – I can live without you
But I don’t live very well
Far as I can tell
But all I can say’s “Michelle you might as well just live with me”
Track Name: Black Dress
I wandered into you
Unaware
Half-way across the room
You caught my stare
Backstage was full of “Joe’s”
I don’t care
That night you let me know
I’d follow you anywhere you go

“Come sit here next to me”
You show no doubt
I couldn’t disagree
We’d just gone out
I left Chi-town to find
Your sweet mouth
I found no peace of mind
Only clearer shouts

The drama became thick
As Johnny-Cat and I indulged
Oh it did surely kick
My eye-lids bulged
The heat began to hit
I must confess
My bottom lip I bit
When you put on that black dress
Track Name: Just a Crush
Do I believe that I am somewhere
Can I conceive that no one does care
Does there exist a place where I can just retreat to
When the only place I wanna be is near you

This may be just a crush
I never wanted this much
And I forget all of my worries when you look at me

I am young now and you are older
You are young at heart and I am colder
And I am not as immature as you may see me
I just can’t help that with you is all I want to be

This may be just a crush
I never expected so much
And I forget all of my troubles when you look at me

Is my dream within the realm of my reach
Do I seem over the earth or beneath
Come with me to a place I don’t know
Could this be real or is it just another show

So come with me on a journey
I wonder if in my life I’ll ever stop learning
And now I finally can begin to see the real me
Something tells me that with you I’ll find my destiny

This may be just a crush
I never imagined this much
And you can make me feel amazing when you look at me.
Track Name: Hope Ahead
There was a girl that I thought I knew
I thought she thought she knew what to do
We were happy
But then it turned out we did not know
That sometimes all we can do is grow

And all of a sudden there is finally hope ahead
We mix a little love with travel to get it right
And all of a sudden we sought humility instead
After we found pain we found we were alright

There we were playing our selfish games
As we kept saying to weightless names
“I think I love you”
And soon thereafter we’d realize
Again we’d fallen for our own disguise

And all of a sudden there is finally hope ahead
We mix a little love with travel to get it right
And all of a sudden we sought humility instead
After we found pain we found we were alright

Where is the past now, what did they say
I don’t remember that much today
But I know that
A life is only good as it is
And if we’re lucky we’ll have troubled kids
Track Name: On Me
I’m sick of writing about drugs and alcohol
But now I’m left with nothing to write at all
So I’ll make up a simple melody
As I have one more drink on me

I’m sick of musing upon all the lovers past
There’s no more using that trick ‘cause now I’ve got a love that I know will last
But a singer must at least have a melody
So I smile as I sing for me

Kids you shouldn’t get high
‘Cause everyone knows it’s bad
But know you can rely
On the fact that we’re all sad
If you ever get by
The eye of your good dad
Then you really might try
To fly

I’ve never been one to make a stand
I’ve always done my best at hiding my hand
All I ever really wanna do is make a melody
While you all have a drink on me

Just have one more drink on me
