Who Am I? 03:51
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?

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

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

Never Before 04:58
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

Time Machine 05:24
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

Oblivious 04:17
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

Killing Time 04:01
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.

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

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

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

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

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...
