Track Name: Who Am I?
Who am I to go everywhere you want to be?
Who am I to hold on when you want to be free?
Yeah, who am I?

Who am I to stay with you the rest of your life?
Who am I to decide what is wrong and what’s right?
Yeah, who am I?

I occupy your mind
And often times you do ignore me
Then you see
How much you need me
How much you need me again

Who am I to watch out for you when you can’t see?
Who am I to take over whenever you need?
Yeah, who am I?

Who am I to be telling you what you should do?
Who am I to repeat what you already knew?
Yeah, who am I?

I occupy your mind
And often times you do ignore me
Then you see
How much you need me again
Who am I?
Track Name: Something About the Girl
There’s something about the girl that makes me laugh
There’s something about the girl that makes me cry
There’s never a halfway
She’s either night or day
I’m long past wondering why
I never sleep if I try

There’s something that she says from time to time
A cross between a threat and a guarantee
"You’ll never ever find
Who loves you more than I
That’s why you’ll always love me"
I guess I won’t disagree

She is a lovely princess from a fairy tale
Her Royal Highness and I take a stroll through the garden for tea
When the wicked witch appears
To cast a spell on me
I have to try to charm her
Kisses and flowers disarm her
Love is no fairy tale at all

There’s something about the girl I’ll never know
There’s something about the girl I can’t explain
She’s positively fine
And she’s absolutely mine
You’ll never hear me complain
Although she’s sometimes a pain

There’s something about the girl, there’s something about the girl
Track Name: Starting Today
Yesterday I was happy as I could be
Everything in my life was so complete
And then a dark cloud appears
A dry spell for so many years
I couldn’t write a song to save my life

Starting today
Words came back to me
Starting today
I’ve got melody
Starting today
I can sing again
Starting today

Long ago I was poor, sad and insecure
Writing songs was an outlet if not a cure
You know, how they always say
A tortured artist stays that way
But things turned for the better in my life

Starting today
Words came back to me
Starting today
I’ve got melody
Starting today
I can sing again
Starting today

Today I crashed my car and I killed some guy
Now I’m anguished and depressed and that’s what I needed to get outta this slump

Inspiration is endless it’s all around
I am dancing and music is pouring out
Inside, I am torn apart
A stabbing pain inside my heart
This day will haunt me for the rest of my life

Starting today
Words came back to me
Starting today
I’ve got melody
Starting today
I can sing again
Starting today
Track Name: Never Before
Whatever happened to the innocence
Known by the child who once was me?
For far too long
It’s all gone wrong
I am longing for a sea of tranquility

Never before
Have I looked at the moon
And felt so sure I want to live there
I want nothing more, like never before


I really need to get a break from here
Start my life over far away
Where there’s plenty of space
And no rat race
And the skies are not cloudy all day

Never before
Have I looked at the moon
And felt so sure I want to live there
I want nothing more, like never before, like never before

We’ll build a house for two
Then sit out front enjoy the view,
And have a drink with friends sometimes
And when we take a holiday we’ve got all of the milky way to do

I’ve got no problem with the gravity
On earth things tend to weigh me down
Cast the anchors away
We’re leaving today
Maybe someday we’ll see you around

Never before
Have I looked at the moon
And felt so sure I want to live there
I want nothing more, like never before
Like never before, like never before
Track Name: Time Machine
Have you ever wanted to escape from all the mess that you’ve created at one time in your life?
Have you ever wished that you could get another chance to turn your life around?
Now you can!
Don’t believe me - try it for yourself if you like.
If you can’t stand the life you’re living, go back and try again.
Just use the Time Machine.

Time machine
Bring back the past
I can’t bear this moment
Time machine
I won’t go too far
Just give me a chance to fix a broken heart

Maybe you’d prefer to just forget about the past and make the best of what you get in your life.
Wouldn’t it be comforting to know that everything you do will work out right?
Now you can!
And it’s easy - try it for yourself if you like.
If you can’t stand the life you’re living, go back and try again.
Just use the Time Machine.

Time machine
Show me the future
I can’t bear this moment
Time machine
Won’t be gone too long
I just want to see if I will love someone

Time machine
Take me away
I can’t bear this moment
Time machine
Time machine
Time machine
Track Name: Oblivious
She is another world
All the other worlds
Long to be

She has an innocence
Which in every sense
She brings to me

If the world should stop revolving
I’d be the last to know
I am oblivious, I am oblivious
I’m unaware
And I just don’t care
For I am delirious
Oblivious

She is the candle light
In the dead of night
Beckoning

We have a love we know
Will forever grow
Unwavering

If the oceans boiled over
I’d be the last to know
I am oblivious, I am oblivious
I’m unaware
And I just don’t care
For I am delirious
Oblivious
Track Name: Killing Time
I left my schedule wide open. I had some time on my hands. Such is a moment like this that one can’t let it slip away, and so without delay I take a trip out to her place. Memories of our romance, which make me smile after such a long while, passing here and there. Yes, we made quite a pair – killing time.

I park the car round the corner and toward her window I glance briefly before I walk up to the door with a big surprise. If you could see her eyes! She was quite happy to see me and before our discussion ends she and I drive out to the ocean side where we used to park long after it was dark – killing time.

I said I still can’t forgive her for sleeping with two of my friends. I held her under the water and then let her drift away. We had no more to say.

I know you’re probably thinking, have you just heard me confess? Maybe you have but then maybe you haven’t – it’s just a song – and has been all along.

Killing time.
Track Name: He’ll Never Know Me
Near or far I search for him
We’re two of a kind
In heart and mind
Yet it seems
He’ll never know me
He’ll never know me
And I, I will never know him

I believe in destiny
But I wonder when
Just now and then
Could it be
He’ll never know me
He’ll never know me
And I, I will never know him
He’ll never know me
He’ll never know me
And I, I will never know him

I have an explanation
For this deep infatuation
I have met him many times before
We’ve expressed our admiration
And had lengthy conversations
In my dreams
In my dreams

He’ll never know me
He’ll never know me
And I, I will never know him

Here I am where I began
Am I closer now
I’m not sure how
When it seems
He’ll never know me
He’ll never know me
And I, I will never know him
He’ll never know me
He’ll never know me
And I, I will never
Not really ever
No, I will never know him
Track Name: I Don’t Want to Count You Out
You got me feeling like I’m feeling again
You got me thinking that you’re not quite the same
You got me hoping that it’s you at my door
The door is open but I don’t know what for
Well, I don’t want to count you out
No, not yet

Expecting something I expected before
I really want you but I really want more
Although it looked like our affair wouldn’t last
I’ll try to put all our mistakes in the past
Cause I don’t want to count you out
No, not yet

All I want is someone
More or less
Not unlike you here
Yes, I’m vague
Because I still hesitate
To be so clear
All I want is someone
More or less
Not unlike you here
Yes, I’m vague
Because I still hesitate
To be so clear

I always wanted to see you as you are
But you’re so distant or can’t I see so far
If time will tell I wonder what would it say
If we together were to get back today
Yes, I don’t want to count you out
No, not yet
I don’t want to count you out
No, not yet
I don’t want to count you out
No, not yet
I don’t want to count you out
No, not yet
Track Name: The Elephant in the Room
I love when you try on the clothes you wore back when we met
Lying on the floor – breathe in a little more
You’re still the girl I fell in love with, minus the belt

Remember whenever we used to stay out all night long drinking or something?
Laugh at everything!
Why do our friends no longer want to go out these days?

So here we are
And so far I don’t feel the years have passed as quickly as they have
I don’t think we’ve changed at all
Turn a page, act your age – we don’t need to hear such nonsense
That is the elephant in the room

So someday we might say let’s stay at home and watch TV
Maybe we could cook, curl up with a book
That doesn’t mean we’re slowing down we just want a change

I’ve known you for so long I forget just what it’s like to be a single man
I was much younger then!
How bizarre…

Here we are
And so far I don’t feel the years have passed as quickly as they have
I don’t think we’ve changed at all
Turn a page, act your age – we don’t need to hear such nonsense
That is the elephant in the room
Track Name: Another Love Affair
Another love affair
Another love affair
Another love affair to remember

Here am I thinking over
All the wonderful things you say and do
And you know, I’ve discovered
That your love always comes and goes
But these passionate ebbs and flows
Make me try even harder to make you love me


Another love affair
Another love affair
Another love affair to remember

Now you say that you’re leaving
Well I want to believe you’ll change your mind
And I know that you’re feeling
That it’s too late to start again
So if this really is the end
Well there is no doubt that you will always be

Another love affair
Another love affair
Another love affair to remember

I’ve always wanted to find true love
And when I wonder if it’s you
Although there are some things I do love:
Are you there when I most need you?
Do you care that I care for you?
Is it possible that you feel the same way too?

Another love affair
Another love affair
Another love affair to remember
Another love affair
Another love affair
Another love affair to remember
Another love affair
Another love affair
Another love affair
Now it’s over
Track Name: Without My Pr0n
When I was 12 I found a magazine
Under my parent’s bed
With girls with hardly any clothes
Some naked

And so began my life of fantasy
I didn’t know
That I would end up all alone
So unfulfilled, heart like a stone
The only girls I’d ever known
Had never met me
And I didn’t give a damn

At some point I discovered DVDs
I tried my hand at it
Most of the girls were silicone
And shaven

The TV screen was the reality
I only knew
Where my remote was my best friend
I could fast forward to the end
Then close my eyes and just pretend
That for that moment
I’ve never been such a stud

No no no no no no
What would I ever do without my porn?
Don’t go go go
What would I ever do?
I really need something!

These days I download almost everything
And it’s unlimited
The girls are mostly still the same
Some Asian

Now recently it’s all the same to me
And pretty dull
It’s not so hard anymore
I think I must be getting bored
Because I’ve seen it all before
So what’s the next thing
If internet porn is dead?

No no no no no no
What am I gonna do without my porn?
Don’t go go go
What am I gonna do?
I really need something!

No no no no no no
What am I gonna do without my porn?
Don’t go go go
What am I gonna do?
I really need something...
