Track Name: California
He went down to California today
Said that's where he wants to be
I woke up, nothing was left
You know California is away from me

If the sun rises in your eyes, you've taken it with you
Left me alone, with these ties, alone in company
Oh I see, Oh to be free
Is the treasure we all, we all like to keep

Never go with expectations
If the truth is what we hold
our answers will unfold
And take us (honey take us)
out of the cold

The babes are wet and curl their lips
They work for tips
The room is lit, adjusting to fit
all of your needs
The orange trees, feed and get you high
on each new idea

I'm doomed with a frown but I can't frown upon
all the things that you have done
California blaze
Leave him unharmed
Oh I see, Oh to be free
If only we knew, if only we knew how to be

Never go with expectations
If the truth is what we hold
our answers will unfold
And take us (honey take us)
out of the cold

Never go with expectations
If the truth is what we hold
our answers will unfold
And take us (honey take us)
out of the cold
Track Name: Creeping
s this what we are meant to do?
One too many promises went up in smoke
When do you know it's time to let go
Before you become a joke

I keep running and diggin' my own grave
To find your loving arms that once kept me safe
Where can I find you now?
When the world is spinning around

I feel something creeping up my spine
Disillusion of reality
Distortion of succes
Well I prefer to believe in you and me
In you and me

Round and round goes the time
Baby I've tried to make room for you
But someone else came and entered too
and committed the perfect crime

I've seen it happen somewhere else
But now it's got a hold on you
At once we're reduced
to our faith tangled up in blue

I feel something creeping up my spine
Disillusion of reality
Distortion of succes
Well I prefer to believe in you and me

I feel something creeping up my spine
Disillusion of reality
Distortion of succes
Well I prefer to believe in you and me

in you and me
in you...
Track Name: If Only
Stop this train,
better get off while I can
You know he lives down south
And I guess I do, I understand.

I’ve tried to keep his lips wet.
Made him a summer bed
But he loves his freedom too.
Said he loves…

Someone like me, Someone like you.
I kept missing all the clues.
I don't know how I can get to him
No I don't know..

I am such a fool.
Getting it on with you

You, You, You my baby you…

We talk in signs and signals.
I give him the space he says he needs
I'll wait for the first falling of leaves.
Maybe he'll come back to me.
And pray for spring days. The blooming of his innocence.
No more resilience. His fears will have to fade away.

And I will stay away.
'Cause what I do is it ever enough?
What I do is it ever enough for you…

I am such a fool
Getting it on with you

If only…if only
Track Name: Numb
I saw memories float away across the universe
You danced in circles in your own time

Spring comes and goes so fast
Summer never lasts
I have become perfectly numb
to any wave
And all that remains is all that you gave
And all that you gave had light

Clouds drift by over meadows cracked and dry
On the autumn wind I swear I heard your sigh

Nothing is like it was before
My insides turned, they bored a hole
And I have become perfectly numb
to any wave….

The tumble weed froze
The tumble weed froze

Spring comes and goes so fast
Summer never lasts
I have become perfectly numb
to any wave
And all that remains is all that you gave
And all that you gave had light

And I saw memories float away across the universe
Track Name: Cruel World
You said you were easy baby
I think you’re complicated lately
I shouldn’t haven fallen so hard
'Cause now I’ve got to pick myself up from the start

It’s a cruel world
You’re a cruel man
I don’t think I could ever fall in love again

It’s a cruel world
You’re a cruel man
I don’t think I could ever fall in love again

You said me coming here is kinda crazy
Now everybody knows I’m a mess for you baby
Why do we play the games we do?
I guess I had it coming when I met you

It’s a cruel world
You’re a cruel man
I don’t think I could ever fall in love again

It’s a cruel world
You’re a cruel man
I don’t think I could ever fall in love again

If you want to follow me
Into the dark where you can’t see
Love be smart, I might trip over your heart

If I want to follow you
It should because I choose to
Love and crave, something bold and brave

It's a cruel world
Don't treat me rough
I don't think I could...

It’s a cruel world
You're a cruel man
I don't think I could ever fall in love again (4x)

It's a cruel world
You do what you can
I know I'll fall again...
