Track Name: Beauty ♡f the Beast
Time to be kind, time for the heart.
Would you be mine, life is so hard.
Say if you bleed, I’ll be your scar.
Just let me be, be where you are.

(Chorus)
Some-day you and me,
Maybe we’ll be, deep in our own.
With nothing to hide, touching the sky,
Like stars.

What can I do, to change what I am.
Change what you see, to make me your man.
Playing with hearts, you keep what you’ve found.
Love is the card, that’s hard to lay down.
Track Name: L♡♡se Lips Sink Ships
The winter nights in Charlevoix
Got a bit too cold for me
But I was told the lie
That I’d been brought up right
And I was taught that I should be free

But the nights on Lake Ontario
Took what was left of me
But I believed the lie
That I’d been brought up right
And I once believed that I could be free

But I disconnected my land line
And sold all o’ my shit to Todd Levine
But now I realize
That I was wrong to think that I wouldn’t need ya
To blow me back home tonight

I was listening to the moon tonight
And she explained to me
That you weren’t told a lie
And that you’d been brought up right
And you would always long to be free

So maybe motor on to Montreal
And forget that you knew me
Cuz I’ve heard all yer lies
And I am not surprised
To find that you’d come crawlin’ back to me

So run yer rig up on the shore
And wait for a message in a bottle
Like you done before
And send up all o’ yer flares
And you can mention my name
When you say your prayers
But I won’t hear ya
And I won’t blow ya back home tonight

But you got to know if I return
The sky’ll grow dark
And the rain’s gonna burn ya
So butter up yer spar tonight
Cuz I might make a mess of yer sheets
Cuz I might wanna bite ya
Cuz I guess I need ya
I guess I’ll blow you back home tonight

Let’s break another bottle
On the bow tonight
And set the headin’ for home
With the sheets pulled tight
Be sure to pull the anchor out
And be sure to let me know
When yer comin’ about
Because you know I need ya
And I know you’d blow me
Back home tonight
Track Name: L♡ve S’p♡sed T♡ C♡nquer All
Why didn’t you try
How could you let go so easily
Wasn’t I worth the fight
A little trouble comes along and you let trouble have it’s way

Don’t you know that love’s s’posed to conquer all

Guess you never had that kind of fate
And your apathy feels like hate

Don’t you know that love’s s’posed to conquer all

Guess you never had that kind of fate
And your apathy feels like hate
Yeah your apathy feels like hate
Yeah your apathy feels like hate

Valentines beware
Of a certain kind of fair-weather lover
He’ll pretend to be there
But the winds start a-crashin’ and the north winds blow, he’ll be gone

Don’t you know that love’s s’posed to conquer all

Guess you never had that kind of fate
And your apathy feels like hate

Don’t you know that love’s s’posed to conquer all

Guess you never had that kind of fate
And your apathy feels like hate
Yeah your apathy feels like hate
Yeah your apathy feels like hate

Don’t fall for fake
Don’t jump a train that’s goin’ nowhere
Don’t manipulate
Slow down, look around, get to know the town you’re in

Don’t you know that love’s s’posed to conquer all

I still lookin’ for a man with fate
With no apathy and no hate
With no apathy and no hate
With no apathy and no hate
Track Name: With♡ut Y♡u
Walk up to your door and I see
Heart falls to the floor and I know
That this is all a dream
Seems to float away but then I find
You’re everywhere in everything
Your love seems frozen in time

Chorus:
Seems so cold without you
I am cold without you
And just like your eyes I’m turnin’ blue

Faces in the pictures on the wall
Memories of everything seem to fall
Never fades with disappearing time
I’m everywhere in everything
And your love grows with mine

Chorus

Open up the door my love
Appreciate your every way you’re an angel from above
Cyclical motion return to me
We’re everywhere in everything
I can’t believe

Chorus
Track Name: Ruby Red
Flowers and chocolates
Are fine for girls like her I guess
I need a love with a little more flesh
Some meat upon the bone

Not that those things aren’t grand
Dancing, starlight, waves in sand
I need a special kind of woman
Who can really bring things home

Little girls play things on the floor
I need flames that have to soar

My love is ruby red
Warm and sweet like chocolate bread
The kind that goes right to your head
And never lets you go

My love is ruby red…
(His love is ruby red…)
Track Name: Darlin’ It’s Y♡u
Sometimes love
Sometimes love
It don’t mean nothin’
Sometimes love
Sometimes love
It don’t mean nothin’
But nothin’ means the world to me
Like you do
Darlin’ it’s you

Once in life
Once in life
You might find someone
Once in life
Once in life
You might find someone
Someone to help you make it through
Make it through
Darlin’ it’s you

Love
It don’t mean nothin’
Love
It don’t mean nothin’
It don’t mean nothin’

Sometimes love
Sometimes love
It don’t mean nothin’
Sometimes love
Sometimes love
It don’t mean nothin’
But nothin’ means the world to me
Like you do
Darlin’ it’s you
Darlin’ it’s you
Darlin’ it’s you
Darlin’ it’s you
Darlin’ it’s you
Track Name: Y♡u Were With Me
Ice skates, frozen rings upon the lake
Fire’s burnin’ in the hearth, catchin’ snowflakes
Feelin’ your presence
Under this crescent
I could have missed you but
You were here with me
I could have missed you but
You were here with me

Leaves are fallin’ and I see the colors change
There’s a bit of frost, your heart don’t seem so strange
Feelin’ your presence
Under this crescent
I could have missed you but
You were here with me
I could have missed you but
You were here with me

Fireflies, summer days never end
Campfires, singin’ songs, remember when
Feelin’ your presence
Under this crescent
I could have missed you but
You were here with me
I could have missed you but
You were here with me

Icy chill now slowly fades away
Newborn colors replace the cold and grey
Feelin’ your presence
Under this crescent
I could have missed you but
You were here with me
I could have missed you but
You were here with me
You were here with me
Track Name: Hard Time L♡vin’ Y♡u
I love it when you talk behind my back
I love it when the car falls off the jack
The slow driver in the fast lane
Nothing beats a good ankle sprain

I love it when I trip and fall
Or when there’s no paper in the stall
I love it when I drop my glass
Or when my car runs out of gas

Chorus:
Good things are easy to love
But I can love the bad things too
I try so hard to love everything
But I’m still havin’ a hard time lovin’ you
I’m havin’ a hard time lovin’ you

I love it when I can’t sleep at night
I love being wrong when we fight
I love it when I must go straight to jail
I love it when all I get is junk mail

I love the line at the DMV
I love when everything is blamed on me
I love these things though cold and unforgiving
At least they let me know that I’m still living

(Chorus x2)
Track Name: Resale Sh♡p ♡f L♡ve
Janie used to say, man in this town
You can find broken love lying on the ground
There’s like thirty-seven people
On a merry-go-round
Changing partners every week

Come that day when I leave this burg
I’ll scream obscenities and flip the bird
At every stupid sucker who dreamed they’d heard
Their hometown song of love

Just take one look in the storefront there
If you question any word I say
Second hand shops crammed to the rafters
With love that’s gone astray
Wedding gowns with hemlines stained
Ever so lightly in cheap champagne
Half-price dreams from the resale shop of love

St. Vinny DePaul’s changing room stalls
Know every story in this town
On display in the window today
There’s a red tag fire sale on (on-on-on!)

Wedding gowns with hemlines stained
Ever so lightly in cheap champagne
Half-price dreams from the resale shop of love
Half-price dreams from the resale shop of love
Track Name: Take My L♡ve
Razor’s edge and little deaths
Are bleeding into one
In the dark we found our spark
Our shadows become one

Break my heart
Or take my love
Break my heart
Or take my love

Comets tails all stars aligned
The future has begun
Together walking backwards
As we stare into the sun

If you’re going to break my heart
Then go on and do your stuff
But if you’re in for real then
Go on and take my love

Sticks and stones and broken bones
Are all likely outcomes
Baby’s breath and dragon’s tails
The circle’s come undone
Track Name: If Y♡u ♡nly Knew
You got money
That can’t do no harm
You got the looks, baby
And a certain kind of charm
Yeah, you got your good points
In fact, quite a few
You could get a big head, baby
If you only knew

When I am happy
Then you’re happy too
And whenever I’m sad, baby
You know what I’d want you to do
I think I could really
Really fall hard for you
Yeah, I could fall hard, baby
If you only knew
If you only knew
If you only knew
Baby on you I could get stuck
If you only knew
If you only knew
If you only knew how to

I know I can trust you
And that sure means a lot
And you seem to appreciate the woman you’ve got
Baby, you could trust me
Yeah, you could trust me too
Maybe you could trust me
If you only knew
If you only knew
If you only knew
Man, you might have better luck
If you only knew
Yeah I could be true
If you only knew how to

When I left your room at the Hilton last night
I bet you’re wondering where I went
You wouldn’t believe me if I told you
I spent the night in a tent
It’s not my job to wise you up
If you don’t have a clue
But hey, do you think I like camping
If you only knew

If you only knew
If you only knew
That luxury suite wouldn’t totally suck
If you only knew
If you only knew
If you only knew how to
Oh baby
If you only knew how to
Oh baby
If you only knew how to
Don’t make me fuckin’ say it
Track Name: Here T♡ Mexic♡
I was foolish to let you go
But I guess I was scared
Of the distance from here to Mexico

You say you’re back now
In this quiet town
But it doesn’t feel like the time
To start again

No warning signs
That I’d be left behind
Thought I was yours and you were mine

I just keep losing sleep
Walking down these dead end streets
All these endings before their time
…But I needed to let you go

Time’s not on our side
We just hope for the best
As we pass like ships in the night

Tried to weather the storm
But the winds of change
Have sent us off to
Separate shores
Track Name: L♡nely T♡gether
Been up all night, countin’ my tears
Been singin’ the blues but there’s no one to hear
Tryin’ to pick myself up, don’t know what to do
Been feelin’ so lonely, how ‘bout you?

When I come home to a house full of no one
An empty feeling washes over me
All this space with no one to share it
Bein’ lonely’s so hard, baby wouldn’t you agree?

Chorus: (x2)
It just makes sense that we console each other
Tonight I wanna be your lover
If we’re gonna to be lonely, let’s be lonely together

Here at the bar now for a couple of hours
I can see your sadness from across the room
I looked at you and I knew you were lonely
I came in alone, but I’ll be leavin’ with you

Chorus x2
Breakdown chorus
Chorus

If we’re gonna be lonely, let’s be lonely together
If we’re gonna be lonely, let’s be lonely together
Track Name: Gh♡sts ♡f Calif♡rnia
I set a course for liberation
On the road to higher faith
Leaving the fires miles behind
And the ghosts of California
Just fade away

Ask and you shall receive
Yeah, you can go my way
I can’t hide these highway eyes
Hush little drifter I already know your name

Cuz I never met a lover that I didn’t loathe
Cuz I could never fall in love, girl, I just fall

Hangin’ on for the ride, hangin’ on by a hair
We’re going to the same place but you gonna beat me there

Cuz I never met a lover that I didn’t loathe
Cuz I could never fall in love, girl, I just fall (x2)

Ghosts of California
Ghosts of California
Ghosts of California
I just fall
I just fall
Track Name: Besame
Te quiero mama
Besame
Te quiero mama
Aye
Track Name: M♡♡nlight Healing
Looks like the water is kissing the sky
Black lace over golden sunset
Facing the east, the moon will be my guide
Behind me the memories of when we met

Before the night comes, there is only one star in the dusk
There is no twilight between the worlds
Our golden love now has turned to rust
Solitude is mine as the night unfurls

There was a world together, now there’s a world apart
The moon will be my guide with its ever changin’ heart
When she shines her light, I will know just what to do
Even though I feel I can’t find my way I know that it ain’t true
Moonlight healing
Moonlight healing

Navy night now is falling all around me
The stars are poking through this earth-bound ceiling
This soul of mine has been naïve
I bathe my broken heart in moonlight healing

There was a world together, now there’s a world apart
The moon will be my guide with its ever changin’ heart
When she shines her light, I will know just what to do
Even though I feel I can’t find my way, I know that it ain’t true
Moonlight healing
Moonlight healing

Moonlight healing
Moonlight healing
Track Name: If L♡ve
If love
If love could make you stay
If hearts could never say goodbye
If dreams could never die

Then you
You would always be
Here to share each memory
Until the end of time

And now
Now that you’re near
Just hold me close
In your arms
The love
All of your love
I promise to keep
Here in my heart

And you
You will always be
The starlight in the open sky
Shining down on me
