Track Name: Stormy Weather
Long is the night, long as the thoughts I lay beside
Quiet is your breath, quiet as my voice that wont confide

The rain outside the window brings me back beside my brother bed
Where the rain outside his window kept my mother rocking his sweet head

And I know stormy weather's going to live in my soul
And I know stormy weather's going to live in my soul all these nights long

I'm like my mother rapped in a dream to pass the hour
And I'm like my father silent when the time's upon our shoulder
Grandma isn't getting well anymore, things can never be the same anymore
We would paint in the afternoon while the rain fell on the roof

And I know stormy weather's going to live in my soul
And I know stormy weather's going to live in my soul all these nights long
Track Name: Lullaby
Sing for me. Sing for me and I will sing for you
I got a little harmony that we could do
All the way, all the way from Hong Kong to Timbuktu
We will sing so lovely just me and you

Because you are sweeter than a lullaby
And you are sweeter than a song bird in the sky

Long ago not very long ago I didn't know that you were so far away
But now your in my arms and your here to stay
Follow me follow me and I will follow you
I dont know where your going but I'm going to

Because you are sweeter than a lullaby
And you are sweeter than a songbird in the sky

Sing with me sing about love just like an angel sent from above
I”m in heaven when your next to me
Harmony our little harmony will never go far from me its stuck in my head
But the moon is on the rise and its time for bed

Because you are sweeter than a lullaby
And you are sweeter than a songbird in the sky
You are sweeter than a lullaby
And you are sweeter than a songbird in the sky
Track Name: End of the World
I sent you a postcard. Goodbye was too hard
You never replied, never hear my side.
I gave you my heart. You fed it to lions

Feels like the end of the world everyday
No need for new conversation since you went away

I kept to myself. What would I say?
You told me before I would go my way

Feels like the end of the world everyday
No need for new conversation since you went away

I sleep all day and all night
I'll be by myself the rest of my life
and maybe tomorrow I'll try

Feels like the end of the world everyday
No need for new conversation since you went away
Track Name: Dream of a Girl
Let me go where my heart is, high in the clouds
Just three thousands miles from the body of a woman chasing the heart of a girl

Tilt my head from spinning out, further from the ground
Just five thousand miles from the body of a woman chasing the heart of a girl

Falling. Falling head over heels. Falling in love with a dream of a girl

Tell me how do I get there. I'm running out of time
In this real life, my body hurts like a woman chasing the heart of a girl

Falling, falling head over heels. Falling in love with a dream of a girl
Track Name: When I Come Home
Disappeared to a dream where the streets go nowhere
And frosted flowers pave my way; they know I leave in the morning
Because everytime I run away I was trying to make you understand
That every time I shared your bed I was just trying to hold your hand
Cuz I just want your love everytime when I come home

On a train through the night where time stops turning
And colored shadows line the way. Take me home to the morning

Because every time I run away I was trying to make you understand
That every time I shared your bed I was just trying to hold your hand
Because I just want your love every time when I come home

I'll be strong I'll be so bold when I get off the plane
I'll tell you I'll tell you what I know I already knew

That every time I run away I was trying to make you understand
That every time I shared your bed I was just trying to hold your hand
Cuz I just want your love
I just want your love
Every time when I come home
I just want your love every time when I come home
Track Name: Be A Man
I don't look in the mirror. I don't look in the shower. I don't relate to my own reflection.
I'll die before I stop to fall for the image of a doll that my magazine shares with me
Tell me I could be a man. Tell me. Tell me.

I don't want to be a girl if it means I have to run on and on this treadmill every single day
I don't want to put on this makeup. I don't want to even lye on the beach today.

Tell me I could be a man. Tell me I could be a man. Tell me. Tell me

I could eat this whole town. I don't care. It doesnt know what I woman is.

Tell me I could be a man
Track Name: Please You
Tell me is it wrong what I do
Tell me is it wrong to think of you in a car in a bus in a plane in a train in a plane
Tell me am I doing it the right way. Tell me your love is here to stay in the dawn in the noon in the night
And if the stars are down and if the moon's around
I wont' make a sound because all I want
All I want to do is please you. All I want to do is ease you. Won't tease you, just please you.

Tell what you need and I'll give it to you.
Tell me what you want and I'll give it too in a bus in a car in a plane in a train in a plane
Take you up a hill take you down a bay. Take you to a land far away in the dawn in the noon in the night

And if the stars are down and if the moon's around
I won't make a sound cuz all I want
All I wanna do is please you. All I want to do is ease you. Wont tease you, just please you.
Track Name: Little Debbie
I'm trying to grow up, trying to be clean and kind
But no ones giving me grades so I'm back to wasting my time. Wasting my time

Little debbie you fill me up on the inside
Than you leave me empty
Oh you were going to help me out

But you don’t, don't know what to do
I keep crawling keep crawl crawling back to you
And its sad its disappointing to see Little Debbie is strong, much stronger than me

I'm out of words to say, nothing seems to change my mind
Always looking for love in the same grocery line, grocery line

Little Debbie you fill me up on the inside
Than you leave me empty
Oh you were going to help me out

But you dont, dont know what to do
I keep crawling keep crawl crawling back to you
And its sad its disappointing to see Little Debbie is strong, much stronger than me

Little Debbie you sad you were going to fill me up and love me
But then you just left me empty
Oh you were going to help me out

But you don't don't know what to do
I keep crawling keep crawl crawling back to you
And its sad its disappointing to see Little Debbie is strong, much stronger than me
Oh little Debbie is strong, much stronger than me
Track Name: Maybe In the Morning
My sweet boy, I wish I knew how to explain
my heart has never been the same since my demons came to me
told me to close my eyes and dream
Maybe in the morning we will meet
My old friend, I'd like to see you again someday
I wish I knew what you would say
I'd like to keep your dream alive
But I just close my eyes and dream
Maybe in the morning we will meet
And I close my eyes and dream
Maybe in the mornig we will meet
I'd like to leave it up to you
But I've got nothing else to do
Feels like I'm worried all the time
And I just close my eyes and dream
Maybe in the morning we will meet
And I close my eyes and dream
Maybe in the morning we will meet
Track Name: Kingdom
Child of silence and shadow you lay in great beds of mint
You dreamt on rivers devoured by a flame of moon
Your hands flowed in the wind
Where are your night lost angel?
Don't you see the sunshine?

Dawn listen to the voice too heavy
Throbbing in the casting of steel
Do you feel the fear entering you like a knife in your chest
You pass through our lands lost in the midst
You don't see the sun shining
Like the first morning on earth
Track Name: Promise Me
They say I'm going home
Where angels roam
And I'll have freedom and nothing to own
They say I should feel peace. The end of sorrow
And I've had some good years but its my time to go

Am I going to wake up to a dream
Promise me you can promise me
Will I have a heart beat that never dies
Promise me you can promise me what you'd like

They say I've loved and learned, paid all my dues
And I'll walk forever in my children's shoes
But strong on a wire is no way to live
And I've given all I can give

Am I going to wake up to a dream
Promise me you can promise me
Will I have a heart beat the never dies
Promise me you can promise me want you'd like
What you'd like

My friends hold my hand next to my bed
And turn off the light over my head
Because everybody knows how the story ends
And when its over its me they send

Am I going to wake up to a dream
Promise me you can promise me
Will I have a heartbeat that never dies
Promise me you can promise me what you'd like
What you'd like. What you'd like.
