Track Name: I'll Start Tomorrow
I'll start tomorrow
There's no way I'll start today
I'll start tomorrow
It's so pointless anyway

It's a shame
I don't care
I accept my decree
That I'm not gonna go anywhere
In this life
As I whiddle away
My precious time

I'll start tomorrow
There's no reason to start today
I'll start tomorrow
If you ask me I will say

I can dance
I can sing
I will do anything to not do anything
I will laugh
'Cause it's more fun
Than writing a paragraph

I'll drive around town
I'll stop for a bite
I'll call up my friends
And we'll stay up all nite

I'll sleep until noon
I'll browse some online
I look at the clock
Oh wow! I wasted more time

I'll start tomorrow
There's no reason to start today
I'll start tomorrow
If you ask me I will say

I can dance
I can sing
I will do anything to not do anything
I will laugh
'Cause it's more fun
Than writing a paragraph
Track Name: I'll Be By Your Side
Live your dreams
While you're awake

Face your fears
And meet your fate

Life is what
You choose to make

Don't hold off
Don't hesitate

I'll be by your side
Oh precious child
Don't you cry

You'll be flying high
Like the planes in the sky

I will be on call
In case you trip and fall

Listen to my voice
It's in this song
Travel on, travel on

Climb your doubt
And reach the top

Now look down
You'll never stop

Doors once closed
With daunting locks

Will soon reveal
The gold you've sought

I'll be by your side
Oh precious child
Don't you cry

You'll be flying high
Like the planes in the sky

I will be on call
In case you trip and fall

Listen to my voice
It's in this song
Travel on, travel on

Flying high above the clouds
Suddenly you're filled with doubt

Don't turn back, you've gone this far
You're already halfway to the stars

I'll be by your side...
Track Name: Nearing Twelve
I want you
I need you
My god
I have to have you

I yearn for
The good times
We had
Before you left me

Love will bring you to your knees
With unexpected ease
But life is way too short
To close the door

My pillow
Is filled with
The tears I have
When I'm not with you

The seconds
Are ticking
It's midnight
And I'm still waiting

Love will bring you to your knees
With unexpected ease
But life is way too short
To close the door

The clock, the clock is nearing twelve
Are you happy by yourself?
Is it time to expand your heart?
Make a new start?
Track Name: I'm Glad You Called
In the middle of the night
You called me up to say
That he was leaving you for good
That he had gone away
I was the one you called
When you were in trouble?
I was the one?
I think I'm seeing double.

And then you opened up the door
Into the dark-lit room
Your eyes ignited me
And sent me to an early tomb

I could've sworn
I saw an angel from heaven
Scored 1 to 10
I think you'd be an 11.

I'm glad you called
I'm glad you came
And most of all
I hope you're feeling the same about me

So I told you that you
Really ought to aim for more
That girls like you
Deserve a man who'll make you feel secure

I could've said
You shouldn't look any further
The guy you need
You're crying on his shoulder

And then you looked me in the eyes
With your wanton stare
I had one chance, I had one try
To kiss you then and there

I should've known
That you were looking for love
I should've known
Who you were thinking of!

I'm glad you called
I'm glad you came
And most of all
I hope you're feeling the same
Track Name: Cassandra
Sitting on a park bench in my Sunday best
Waiting for a girl to return all my texts
I've been wondering if I did something wrong
I guess I'll found it out before too long

Standing in the courtroom of my con-sci-ence.
Waiting for the judge to read the consequence
I've been kind to you, but I ignored myself
I let my future hinge on someone else.

Cassandra,
I've been flying blind
Weaving through the thunderclouds
While you've been on my mind

Don't leave me
I might lose my way
Searching for the words I said
That made you run away

Working on the crosswords of my memory
Getting stumped on what goes across 23
The clue says that it rhymes with "astrology"
But I can't guess the word that it should be.

Squeezing through a crowd of all my past regrets
Cacophony of thoughts that don't make any sense
Close my eyes to clear my mind of all of this
The one sound that remains is of your voice

Cassandra,
I've been flying blind
Weaving through the thunderclouds
While you've been on my mind

Don't leave me
I might lose my way
Searching for the words I said
That made you run away

Rewinding the video footage
Playing in my head
Can't hear the words I yelled
That made you turn all red
Track Name: Restless Fear
Things are changin'
I'm not the man
That I thought I used to be

Life's rearranging
In a different place
I'm not where I used to be

I can't look backward now
There's nothing left
As far as the eye can see

I can't look backward now
The future is all
That there is left of me.

Restless fear
I have forgotten my mind
Somehow inadvertently
Left it behind
In lightening my load
I'm declining in sorrow.

The days are flyin'
Time's speeding up
And the hours 1-2-3

There's no denying
I'm growing old
Time's catching up to me

I can't look backward now
There is no way
To change my history

I can't look backward now
There's nowhere to go
There's nowhere I have to be

Restless fear
I have forgotten my mind
Somehow inadvertently
Left it behind
In lightening my load
I'm declining in sorrow.

Ten months ago
In uncertainty
I was taken aback
To a road I once followed

But then I found
That I outgrew the path
And I needed to let go
Track Name: Please Girl
Please girl, don't deceive me
I've been level as can be
Worries in my head
Fables in our bed

Please girl, don't behave this way
I've been waitin' 'round all day
Panic in my veins
Almost gone insane

I'm alone
I desire
My lost love
Not another

You're not home
You've been lying
And I know
You're with a new guy.

Please girl, tell me where you're at.
I've been searching like a rat
Looking for my cheese.
Calling baby, please!

Please girl, don't deny me
I've been open wide you see
Sorrows in my heart
Leading me to dark

I'm alone
I desire
My lost love
Not another

You're not home.
You've been lyin'
And I know
You're with a new man.

Please girl, wake me from the dream
Save me before I have to scream
Let me know what's up
Make the worry stop

Please girl, tell me yes or no.
Call back or say it's time to go,
I need clarity.
Then I'll be at peace.
Track Name: Let's Grow Old Together
What's mine is yours; and, babe, what's yours is mine
Helplessly, we are intertwined
Our love is strong; we smile in photographs
I wrote this song to say I hope it lasts

Let's grow old together
Like two birds, one feather
Let's grow old together
Brave the stormy weather
Let's grow old together
Oh, the time we'll treasure
Let's grow old together

Distance tried to break our love apart.
But all it did was generate new sparks.
Whatever struggles tear our love will mend.
That's because you are my dearest friend.

Let's grow old together
Like two birds, one feather
Let's grow old together
Brave the stormy weather
Let's grow old together
Oh, the time we'll treasure
Let's grow old together

In front of all
We take our vows
We move in fall
To our new house

We close our eyes
And wish for more
We welcome angels
At our door

We share with awe
In their lives
As they grow
Before our eyes

And then we rest
In our nest
Looking back
We did our best

Let's grow old together
Like two birds, one feather
Let's grow old together
Brave the stormy weather
Let's grow old together
Oh, the time we'll treasure
Let's grow old together
Track Name: Don't Look The Other Way
----------------------------------------------
Don't Look the Other Way
Michael S. Lee (2012)
-----------------------------------------------

The messages you were text'n me
Were a warning from the start
I denied my destiny
I kept listen'ng to my heart

The little clues there for me
were a real-life mystery. Yeah.

I may've seen it coming
Didn't think it'd come so soon
The happiness left your eyes
In the limelight of the moon

The little clues there for me
I was too blind to see. Yeah.

I think about you,
Dream about you,
Ev'ry night and day.
When you pass me by,
Don't look the other way.

I knew that there'd be days like this
When darkness fills the mind
I just didn't think it'd come so fast
It crept up from behind

The little clues there for me
I was too blind to see. Yeah

Now I'm feeling lonely
The joy has left my soul
The memories of loving you
I'll have till I grow old

The little clues there for me
I am too blind to see. Yeah.

I think about you,
Dream about you,
Ev'ry night and day.
When you pass me by,
Don't look the other way.

Your final message to me
I found it hard to believe
It said "We should be friends" sorry
It was a misunderstandin'

Now I feel withdrawn
My head is hanging low
My heart is in my pocket
Why did you have to go?

I think about you,
Dream about you,
Ev'ry night and day.
When you pass me by,
Don't look the other way.
