01. Fields Of My Heart
walking in the fields of my heart - i look around - i see your eyes at play in the fields of my heart - i do believe - whatever it does i can’t deny - you’re leaving me with a good feeling inside - dancing in the fields of my heart - holding you close - i feel our souls - they touch in the fields of my heart - chorus - is this love (2) - chorus

02. Gold & Silver
gold and silver oceans don’t care about me - gold and silver powers don’t know what i need - downtown men - live with this: i don’t owe you god-damn fish - do or die - what is this - downtown men - god-damn fish - gold and silver oceans don’t know what i like - gold and silver powers don’t care if i’m right - chorus

03. California Thinkin’
i hear the ocean is the place to be when you need to think things through - that’s why today i’m on my way to california - i’ll be back sometime next summer - maybe with a different point of view, but - never will i change my love for you (3) - i hear the sunshine has an effect on the way a person feels - that’s why i’m on my way to california - i’ll be back sometime next summer maybe with a different attitude, but - chorus - california thinkin’ - never will i change my love for you

04. Circled
i can remember, yet i don’t understand the high price you must pay for your circle - i’ve been circled - circled - i was giving it all before - now it’s taking all of me and choosing sides - let the games begin - chorus - i can remember like it was yesterday - lah-las... - i consider this freedom, yet everyday i can’t help but get away from this pain i’m feeling - chorus - chorus

05. EYR
when it’s raining it’s not rain to me - it’s pouring down daffodils - underneath a sky - lined with silver and gold - i hold a thought close to my heart and she close to me - tell me what’s on your mind - here i am she says and there you are - where do you think i would rather be - it’s so difficult to say good-bye when you know it’s gonna be forever - therefore when you see it in my eyes would you do it for me - someday under a rainbow - a drip-drop down of burgundy - underneath a sky - as i finger paint you on the wall i know it’s not the art of living - it’s the look of time when i stare into your eyes - with a monstrous sweet little voice i scream - again and again and again - chorus

06. New
oh my love - i made it out alive - i never thought i’d see the day with my own two eyes - oh the things i see - where am i - the other side - i never thought i’d feel this way - unafraid of the light - staring at the sun - you and i are one - oh my love - it’s gonna be all right - you’re never gonna have to hear me say goodbye - goodbye - oh the dreams i have - you and i - there’s no where else i would rather be than right here by your side - chorus - new streets - new trees - ideas - memories - new everything - i have changed - i am changing - i will change - chorus

07. Take Me
even to a young child of what little still remains - it seemed so long ago - since the last time - once upon a lie - tell me was it worth waiting for - a toast to your return - are you happy - how does it feel to be back in a place that anticipates your love - come and take me for a little while - even if it’s only for the moment - show me the places that you know - but take me please - take me with you when you go - deep are the mountains of ocean sky - much to say - step inside - as the water drips it hollows out the stone - nothing destroys us but time - be that as it may - how long will you stay - dim the lights - rest your head against my lonely heart - only with you do i pray the moment never ever slips away - chorus

08. Counting Backwards (Demo)
floating in a world of pure fear and dangerous freedom - counting backwards - let the excitement enter you - on an erotic yet romantic wooden horse i was screaming profanity at the elephants on parade - be as dangerous as you want as - dangerous as you want as - dangerous as you want as - dangerous as you want - if it’s way out of reach - don’t hesitate - i’ll meet you halfway there - from where i stand there’s so much to be proud of - counting backwards - with a fist as my open hand - people i meet - faces i know - up to bat first day - swing high - keep low - chorus...
