Track Name: The Lonely Streets of Boston
I don’t know what to do again
I’m sitting on the fence again
But in my defense common sense ain’t common
I thought i had it figured out
You’d think that I would know by now who I am
But it seems that I’ve forgotten
I’m to damn proud to ask for help
I’m doing everything myself
And I’m tired
I need a helping hand
Or someone who just understands

I don’t know what to do again
I’m sounding out a friend again
I know I tend to do that often
But I don’t really want to talk
I think I’m going to take a walk
So here I am on the lonely streets of Boston
Being to damn proud to ask for help
Means doing everything yourself
And getting tired
I need a helping hand
Or someone who just understands

One step forward
Two steps back
So many times that I’ve lost track and i
I need oh I need direction
Going round in circles
Playing it safe
Coz I don’t want to make mistakes
I want perfection
but I need a helping hand
or someone who just understands

Oooh x 4

Track Name: Now You Know
I'm in a dream I'm standing on a stage
Sixty thousand people screaming my name
I'm singing a song a song and they know all the words
They're singing so loud my voice cannot be heard

And i've wanted to be here for so long
I know that when i wake up in the morning it's gone
You ask me what i want when i grow up well now you know

I'm in a dream and you are by my side
We're lying in bed and your hand is wrapped in mine
We've got no where to go and no one has to leave
Our love is safe so we can finally breath

And i've wanted you right here for so long
I know that when i wake up in the morning you're gone
You ask me what i want when i grow up well now you know

Oh I've wanted to be here for so long
I know that when i wake up in the morning it's gone
You ask me what i want when I grow up well know you know
Now you know
Now you know
Track Name: On Your Side
Careful what you wish for
What if it comes true
Before you're really ready
Then what will you do?

Tell me what you'd do my love
If everything you're dreaming of
Was given to you all at once
Tell me what you'd do

You want life to treat you right and im sure it will
Just do yourself a favor and for a while be still

Give yourself permission
To just sit and listen
Before you make decisions
On where you wanna go

Where'd you wanna go my love?
The world is yours to travel
What's your hurry take your time
Life is on your side
Life is on your side
Life is on your side my love
Track Name: Said and Done
It’s you and me against an army
So don’t leave me standing here alone
I can’t fight them on my own
Drop your guns
And wrap your arms around me
Let’s get lost in each other’s eyes for a while
Just let the world crash and burn around us
And pretend we make it out alive

With nothing broken only minor scars
They’ll tell tales about us and how brave we are
we’ll just smile and thank all our lucky stars we’re alive

I won’t lie
The odds aren’t in our favor
Do you recall a single time they were?
We agreed we’d take the road less travelled
So what you say we try

A little harder coz it’s not over yet
We’ve still got time to live with no regrets
They’ll sing songs about us long after we’re gone
When children ask to know bout how the war was won
And they’ll be told we fought with love instead of guns
Love’s the only thing you need when all is said and done
And it’s all been said and done

Track Name: Winter
It’s getting darker earlier on
The leaves are changing color from
Green to yellow big or small
It won’t matter when they fall
They’ll all hit the ground running

It’s getting colder every day
The sun is slowly making way
The rain rides in to take its place
The zealous smile upon his face
Will soon leave this town running
Winter is coming

Bar all the doors tonight
Hold those you love real tight
And stay, steady now hush, be quite
And wait for it to pass you by

It’s getting darker earlier on
The leaves are changing color from
Green to yellow big or small
It won’t matter when they fall
