Track Name: Searching For You
SEARCHING FOR YOU

I was dancing alone when you smiled and asked my name
I said it’s three in the morning in the dark we all seam the same
But you said you could tell this was not my kind of place
And there must be a demon in me that I’m too afraid to face
It true I’ve been looking for a door
Out of this Hollywood tomb
Asking for more

I’ve been searching for you
In this Hollywood tomb
Only searching for you
In this Hollywood tomb

My school friends are married I’m on my own
They were the party it’s Tuesday I’m going out alone
You said nothing good happens here at this bar
It’s all just booze, smoke and coked-out-wanna be stars

I’ve been searching for you
In this Hollywood tomb
Only searching for you
In this Hollywood tomb

Take me home
Take me home
Take me home
Take me home

It’s not a party we’re out every night
Running to put money in the meter with heels in the morning light
Those moments I wonder how got to this place
This Hollywood wasteland of lost dreams and frauds and fakes

I’ve been searching for you
In this Hollywood tomb
Only searching for you
In this Hollywood tomb

Take me home
Take me home
Take me home
Take me home

Track Name: Go
GO

I won’t fall for you tonight
Cuz I know this isn’t right
And you will never be mine
And I can’t accept your warm embrace
Without dreaming of a day I wake
In your arms

But oh, oh, oh, oh
I’ll never know, I’ll never know
And I need you to go
Go

You’ll wanna meet after my show
And I’ll have to tell you no
There’s a line we cannot cross
I want to but I will not

But oh, oh, oh, oh
I’ll never know, I’ll never know
And I need you to go
Go
Just go

So when I stop taking your calls
You might think I don’t care at all
It’s easier if you do
It’s simpler than the truth

But oh, oh, oh, oh
I’ll never know, I’ll never know
And I need you to go
Go
I’ll never know

Track Name: The Ghost
THE GHOST

Every time my phone rings
Every call it’s true
I think it’s you
It’s not you
And every hour feels like a day
Staring out into space
I fear
You’ve disappeared

You don’t come through for me
What’s wrong baby?
On a bed of nails you make me wait
But lately I’ve been wondering
Was it real?
Was it just a dream?
I thought you were a man
You’re just a ghost

Your voice is ringing in my ears
Perfectly in time to the choir I hear
Of sirens wailing in the night
I see your face you’re smiling at me
When you lean in to kiss me
Your lips are bees stinging me

You don’t come through for me
What’s wrong baby?
And on a bed of nails you make me wait
But lately I’ve been wondering
Was it real?
Was it just a dream?
Cuz I can’t sleep at night with a ghost

You’re on my mind
In my head
Thorns and roses on a thread
But I won’t live my life with a ghost

Track Name: Here and There
HERE AND THERE

Here and there
Anywhere
Anyplace with you is home
You and me
Anywhere, everywhere
Any place we go is home

Home is when the sun is setting on the sea
And my hair is blowing in the ocean breeze
Handstands on the sand
The evening calm
My palm in your palm
You and me

Here and there
Anywhere
Anyplace with you is home
Standing on a mountain top
Where we find a cozy picnic spot
Anywhere with you
With you
With you
Is home

I’m terrified of what this means
To give so much and know that I could lose this dream
Are we ok?
Are we still fine?
Hurts more than it should this time
And I know
What it feels like
To cry so hard you think you’ll die
But still we all must try

Here and there
Anywhere
Anyplace with you
With you
With you
Is home

Track Name: Brave
BRAVE

We won’t be younger than today
There’s no great time or place
We won’t be younger
We won’t be brighter
We won’t be crazier than today
We’ve missed chances before
I got shy at your birthday
Even though I wanted more

Are we ever gonna be brave?
Are we ever gonna be brave?
Are we ever gonna take a chance
Or will we always wonder?
Are we ever gonna be brave?
Are we ever gonna be brave?
We might fall hard
We might fall flat
But what if it lasts

We don’t know where we’ll be next year
Or who we’ll meet along the way
You might be on the road
And I said I might go
To New York or San Fransisco
I see that look in your eye
You light up when you see me
Why are we so shy?

Are we ever gonna be brave?
Are we ever gonna be brave?
Are we ever gonna take a chance
Or will we always wonder?
Are we ever gonna be brave?
Are we ever gonna be brave?
We might fall hard
We might fall flat
But what if it lasts
What if it lasts
What if it lasts
What if it lasts

We won’t be younger than today
There’s no greater time or place

Are we ever gonna be brave?
Are we ever gonna be brave?
Are we ever gonna take that chance
Or will we always wonder?
Are we ever gonna be brave?
Are we ever gonna be brave?
We might fall hard
We might fall flat
But what if it lasts
Are we ever gonna be brave?
Are we ever gonna be brave? (What if it lasts)
Are we ever gonna take a chance? (What if it lasts)
Are we ever gonna be brave?
Are we ever gonna be brave? (What if it lasts)
We might fall hard
We might fall flat
But what if lasts
It might just last
