1. this is not a love song

the time is 2:22,
and i hope your wish comes true.
but you say i'll know before you do,
and i hope you're right.

why can we talk this way?
we always speak
when you're so far away,
and i'm sitting right here.
it's 10:00 your time, and it's 1 by mine.

and i often wonder:
why you even care?
do you ever wonder why we met here?

the time is 2:22,
and i hope my wish comes true.
and i think i'll know just when you do,
and i hope i do.
maybe this is just what i need,
and maybe i'm wrong.

2. duane joseph

tell your mom you need a day off,
so we can play out in the rain.
we'll catch a ride to the mall,
go down to the arcarde,
cause that's where all the cool kids play.

tell your mom you need a day off,
cause i dont feel like school today.
we'll ride our boards down the hill
and to the playground,
where everything's okay.

tell your mom we will be home late,
cause building cabins in the woods is hard work.

you always know that i'll be there,
cause i'm the type, and you'll be near.
my closest friend, we'll always be;
you are a hometown kid like me.

tell your mom to make us lunch now,
cause we worked up an appetite.
g.i. Joes and karate matches in the backyard,
where everything's alright.

now i can see that things have changed;
we've gone our seperate ways now.

and it's not you and me
anymore, whoa...

why can't it be the way it was
when they were us...
my closest friends have turned and fled;
you are a million miles away...

and i guess i'll hold my breath.
(there is no harm for hoping for change)

3. august in bethany

with the sounds of the ocean crashing,
7:30,
friday evening...
everything comes tumbling down.

i choke back each tear that bleeds;
i'd rather rest forever in your arms.
i'd rather stay here than go,
but i know that i should leave,
as i sit here helpless...

don't go...
you said you wouldn't;
you said you couldn't.
i think of our time together;
is it fading?
am i dreaming?
everything you said lives on.

i cherish our memories;
i want to kiss your tears away tonight.
it's hard to give up the one you never thought you'd leave.

don't go...
your eyes: they see through my soul...
"don't go," you say as i walk out the door.

4. music box superhero

you'd like to think i have it easy;
at times i think you're right, but then i
take a look around and see your eyes on me.

at times i think i have it easy,
until i close my eyes and see
this life in my box lets you turn the key
when you want to hear a melody.

but i can never be
the apple of your eye:
the story of your life;
it's what's inside.
i go through stages when i feel this matters.
this song and dance is a way of life for me.

you'd like to think i have it easy;
at times i think your right, but then i
take a look around and see the grass is always greener
on the other side.

and i can never be
the one who saves the day;
i'm just the man in the music box.
it's nothing special;
i'm just the man in the music box...
(your music box superhero)...
i will never be your superhero.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

5. seven forty seven

autumn came and left the summer sun behind us with our thoughts.
when it stops raining, i think i'll take a walk to your house.
and if we ever get the time to set a date,
i think i'll take you on the next plane.
won't you come and take a holiday with me?
i've asked you twice before;
will this be the time you finally say yes to me?
i've asked you times before;
this is the last.
i've asked you times before...
won't you come and take a holiday with me?
please say yes!

won't you come with me?
there's things to see.
won't you come and take a holiday with me?
i can take you;
i can't make you.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

6. the closest thing

you're the words that come out easy,
and i am speechless at best.
your star: it seems to shine above the rest.
you're the face before the cameras,
the smile i'd like to earn.
the closest thing to perfect,
in a hollywood to burn.
you're the beauty that is deeper,
than eyes can merely see.
the closest thing to perfect
but the farthest thing from me.

i'd love to be,
the shoulder that you cry on.
i'd love to be,
the friend you call when things are great.

you're the dream that hasn't ended,
and i'm still anxious for rest.
your words: they seem to hang above my head.
you're the bud before the flower
unfurls into full bloom.
captivating beauty, but it may be all too soon.
you're the song that writes a story,
but leaves a lot to read.
the closest thing to perfect,
but the farthest thing from me.

and like i really deserve a chance to
sit across the table,
and tell you that i think you're wonderful,
and i think you're something special.
i guess this is my only chance to
say i wish i knew you,
because i'm sure you're wonderful,
if i'd get to know you.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

7. show me the money

i thought about what you said:
"it's not your money that i really want,"
and i don't care.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

8. for evangeline

in one night, you made me your own.
the deepest embrace's creation...

i laid there for days and you forgot.
in one night, you made me your own;
in one hour, you gave me away to the angels.
you sent me up to the sky;
now their wings fan the heat from the face you'll never touch,
the hair you'll never smell,
the little hands you'll never hold now.

now i am but a silhouette down there;
a silhouette of a memory of a solitary night...
nothing more.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

9. p.s., we'll call you when we get there

looking back, a lot has changed.
we never thought there'd come a day
when everything we used to live for,
everything we did, and everything we say
could fade away...
away...

now we're left holding onto dreams;
just small town kids, we're gonna get there.
now it's time i see those city lights;
i think it's time... to go!
we'll come back home when we hit the big time
and we'll come back someday.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

10. constellation

some things can never be explained;
why every sky still looks the same...
and i wonder how my world would look without you.

some things can never be explained,
like how our scars remain the same...
and i wonder how the sky would look without my star.
sleep seems a dream away,
and a year too late.
words that can't be spoken stream off my face.

and i wanna be selfish.
and i wanna be selfish...
you are my everything.

some things can never be explained;
why does your love remain unchanged?
cause i know it wouldn't be the same without you.
sleep seems a dream away, and a year too late...
words that can't be spoken stream off your face.

please don't forget my name,
and take me with you when you leave.
i've got a lot to lose.

i've got to let it go;
please don't forget my name.
