morning opens - hello sunshine - you’re here today - same place - same time - you know the rules - just skip the facts - c’mon in - sit down - relax - one thing i need... it’s always good to be in great company - let’s talk o’ yesterdays gone by - it hurts to laugh - it helps to cry - today - a month - this week - all year - blue skies above - a love so clear - chorus - morning closes - goodbye sunshine - come back again - back anytime - i’ll miss you much - i’ll wait right here - til you return - so long my dear - chorus

everytime i think nothing will happen - something always does - like when my baby and i split apart and say we’ll never get back together - somehow - shi-dah... we do (4) - every time - thank you - everytime i feel a change coming i close my eyes, visualize and pray to god that we make it through okay - behold - chorus - everytime i imagine a place where we can go and be without fear, hesitation or question - i run and hide - you seek - we find each other there - every time - thank you - it all seems to me to be so real...

07. Face Down
first a ceiling then a sky - i woke up confused - went through all the options of what i can and can not do - rediscovered who i am before the who am i - now i’m feeling california as i slowly hide while i die here face down - as i slowly cry while i lie here face down - sour colors - illusory visions - psychedelic dreams - if hell is being stuck in the middle i’m right there in between - thumbs out - hood up - somebody please help me - cuz i’m seeing fame and fortune - chorus - repeat verse 1 - chorus

08. Say It Over
have you ever been there before - feeling as if life is way out of your control - it’s kinda like a stone: it’s all where you roll - say it over - have you ever been alone - have you ever been there before - feeling as if time keeps draggin’ you along - it’s kinda like a birth: breathing for the first time - say it over - have you ever wanted to cry - have you (2) - have you ever been there before - feeling as if love comes crashin’ down on you - it’s kinda like a jump: so great until it ends - say it over have you ever fallen in love - say it over (2) - have you ever been there before - say it over and over again and again - say it over

09. Chasing The Moon
in contrast to the white light, the devil has painted black on the back of my naked soul - now i find myself (3) on my own - chasing the moon (3) - in my silence are my screams - lift up over sounding - in my thoughts are all my dreams - i seldom hear a word - now i find myself (3) all alone - chorus - i find myself (3) on my own - chorus
