Track Name: The Beginning
It won’t be long, three blocks further
and up on the second floor
down the hall and around the corner
she’s waiting by the door

toss the keys onto the table
she takes off my winter coat
leads me on inside the bedroom
we fall onto the floor

It’s the beginning of the show

hops to her feet, moves so sweetly
silencing the flames
under the sheets, slips in to meet me
we start to drift away

Closing the curtains, here we go
Track Name: Between You and Me
If I had a nickel for all of the times
You have gone your way and I have gone mine
I’d be a rich man and then you would see
There’s never been something between you and me

Our parents and friends said we fit like a glove
We got along fine with the idea of love
But my mind has grown weary, I’m down on my knees
Searching for something between you and me

I’ve got no regrets or gifts to return
But there’s one thing from being with you that I learned
We’ve all got that someone with something we need
But there’s never been something between you and me

We gave it our all, we had some good times
Ate tacos at midnight while we were both high
Hopped gates and swam naked in the heat of July
Nobody can tell us that we didn’t try

I’ve got no regrets or gifts to return
But there’s one thing from being with you that I learned
We’ve all got that someone with something we need
But there’s never been something between you and me

So goodbye for now, though its hard to believe
Someday we’ll laugh and remember when we couldn’t see

That things weren’t working between you and me
Like the old pickup truck at the end of our street
That just sits there rusting in old memories
I’m tired of rusting in old memories

Cause we’ve all got that someone with something we need
But there’s never been something between you and me
No there’s never been something between you and me
Track Name: Times Like These
Got the gloves on, still laced up
One eye open, one eye shut
Lift my body off the ropes
Bricks are feathers to my bones

At times like these

Got the kicks on, still laced up
With time running against me the race is already won
But I’ll be jumping the hurdles, tracing the track
Running circles to get back inside the place
That puts a smile on my face

At times like these with you my love
It’s alright to be confused and young
Don’t feel the need to fight it off
At times like these

Deal the hand out, ante up
Laid down a low pair, well its just my luck
When the winning and losing starts feeling the same
Wouldn’t it be nice to stay inside the place
That puts a smile on my face

At times like these with you my love
It’s alright to be confused and young
Don’t feel the need to fight it off
At times like these
Track Name: Become Like One
Cast by a shadow on a wall near the window, there you are
lost at the days end, I crash like a wave and there you are

The voice of an angel, constantly faithful, calls and calls
Living mostly alone now, learning how to be on our own

How to be on our own, all alone
Learning how to be on our own
Become like one

Two weeks to go now, feels like it’s been a day or a year
What a funny thing time is, when you want it to move it won’t

How to be on our own, all alone
When you want it to move it won’t
Become like one
Learning how to be on our own

Looking through the rain and I can see the sun
You’re living far away but I can feel your love
It’s easy baby, we become like one

We become the clouds up in the sky
We become the ocean deep wide
It’s easy baby, we become like one
Track Name: You Don't Need Me
I never expected to wake up alone
In a brand new apartment instead of our home
I never expected to stay up every night
Feeling empty without you in my life

You know I felt foolish, I was scared
To call up and beg you, to show you I cared
This time I’ll be honest, won’t keep anything inside
You know I’ll be there, when you need someone close by

But you don’t need me
You don’t need me

We were more than just lovers, we were water and wine
Put our faith in eachother through troubles and trials
It was not my intention, to push all that aside
And keep on hurting you until you realized

That you don’t need me
You don’t need me
Track Name: Get Back Up and Walk
There’s always something keeping people pointing fingers
at the reasons that their dreams are falling through
Don’t be defeated by the fear of never reaching
where you think these crooked roads are leading to

Days and days go by as the hamster wheel inside your mind
is spinning out the useless kinds of thoughts
Trust your innocence, relax and act with confidence
You’ve been knocked down, gotta get back up and walk

Get back up and walk these crooked roads that twist along
You’ve been knocked down and it ain’t nobody’s fault
Get back up and walk on through the springs and all the falls
You’ve gotta get back up and walk

Look for innocence in prostitutes, in presidents
In the pages of the news and pillow talk
Learn from accidents, these scrapes and bruises bend
but never broke your backbone, gotta get back up and walk

Get back up and walk these crooked roads that twist along
You’ve been knocked down and it ain’t nobody’s fault
Get back up and walk on through the springs and all the falls
You’ve gotta get back up and walk

Sometimes it’s hard to be alone
It starts when you stand to stumble though the sticks and stones
