Track Name: Baryl's Dream
Nine years spent sleeping,
Only to remember a few,
But, I could know a thousand more,
from just one day with you.

Seven minutes to fall asleep,
Sevent just for a dream,
But I won't need to waste that time,
If you'd sit here close to me.

I can dream.
I can dream.
Five dreams in one night,
140,000 for man,
Why does it start to seem
youre the only one I can't have?

Three hours spent in slumber,
of the eight everytime that I rest
16 to see you don't see me,
and to become downright depressed.

Still, I can dream.
I can dream

One, there is only one,
Dream to believe in,
and it's you.

One, there is only one,
Dream that I could love and,
It's you.
Track Name: We Can't Work It Out
It's nice to hear that you've gotten better,
but that don't mean you've changed.
Your story's nice and your lies are clever,
but, it won't be the same.

Yes, you were there
When I needed someone
To give my love
But, through it all,
you've scarred me deeply
and I've had enough.

So, we can't work it out.
(We can't work it out, oh no, oh no)
No, we can't work it out
(We can't work it out, oh no, oh no)

If I had my way we wouldn't need second chances,
but you had yours instead.
Now, I'm no fool who thinks of failed romances,
I'm thinking with my head.

Yes, I felt alive,
when you kissed me,
and told me that lie.
But, it wasn't true,
so I've discovered,
So, I said goodbye,

and we can't work it out.
(We can't work it out, oh no, oh no)
No, we can't work it out
(We can't work it out, oh no, oh no)

We can't work it out.
We can't work it out, oh no, oh no)
No, we can't work it out
(We can't work it out, oh no, oh no)
Track Name: Feelin' Groovy
I'm feelin' groovy,
And outta sight

You know those days when you wake up
On the right side of the bed?
And you're feelin' so happy when you realize
that you're not dead?
And if anyone goes trying to kill your mood,
you can go and say

I'm feelin' groovy,
And outta sight.

When you love yourself it feels like
Nothing can go wrong
Driving along in your car and you hear
Your favorite song come on
There's a sun shining in a cloudy sky, warm so you can say

I'm feelin' groovy,
and outta sight,
I'm feelin' groovy.
Track Name: Faded Faces
Faded faces are not who they seem to be,
Strange things happen, but it all makes sense to me,
The magic in my mind,
With my daily life combined,
Yes, strange things happen, but it all makes sense to me,

If sleep is the cousin of death,
Why do dreams feel lively?
They mean much more than a day,
and the world appears so brightly,
Like a looking glass,
My mind reflects the day,
Symbols show what's deep inside,
The things I just can't say,

Faded faces are not who they seem to be,
Strange things happen, but it all makes sense to me,
The magic in my mind,
With my daily life combined,
Yes, strange things happen, but it all makes sense to me,

What means the most to me
Are the things they are portending,
I could see doves fly
And have a happy ending,
Or if I saw a sasquatch,
I'd watch what was in me,
Dreams don't ever come true,
But the change is there hiding

Faded faces are not who they seem to be,
Strange things happen, but it all makes sense to me,
The magic in my mind,
With my daily life combined,
Yes, strange things happen, but it all makes sense to me,
Faded faces are not who they seem to be,
Strange things happen, but it all makes sense to me,
The magic in my mind,
With my daily life combined,
Yes, strange things happen, but it all makes sense to me
Track Name: Don't Matter Much To Me
Up and down and all around
The future makes no sound
She hold me high up in the clouds
Then throws me to the ground
So where should I be found?

I'm looking up, I'm looking out,
I'm looking for a sign
Everyday to find my way
Trying to make my mind
She says I'm wasting time

But, time don't matter much to me
Time don't matter much to me

My heart can't feel my soul cant breathe,
My eyes wont help me see,
She wears a mask to hide the truth that will not let me be
So where should i be?

I'm reaching up, I'm reaching out,
I'm reaching for her light
Everyday to find my way
I'm trying to make my mind
She says I'm wasting time

But time don't matter much to me
Time don't matter much to me
Track Name: My Brother
My brother used to love me
Now he wants out of the family
He don't have time to discuss
He just says what's wrong with us

I say it's
Family First
Though they may treat you badly
But when worst comes to worst
They're still my family

My brother and I were close
Now he acts like it's me he don't know
He don't try to make amends
He's too busy with his new friends

I say it's
Family First
Though they may treat you badly
But when worst comes to worst
They're still my family

People say let him be who he wants to be
But, that's not me, I love my family

It's
Family First
Though they may treat you badly
But when worst comes to worst
They're still my family
Track Name: I'm So Bored
I'm so bored,
With what I have,
And I'm so sick
of feeling sad

There's nothing to make me smile,
I don't feel very right

But, I'm so bored
With what I have,
And I'm so sick
of feeling sad

Time goes by before my eyes,
Nothing here, I wanna die

But, I'm so bored
With what I have.
And I'm so sick
of feeling sad
Track Name: Is It Just Me?
Is it just me?
Is it just me?

Is it because I'm not a beautiful woman,
With seven songwriters on each song?
Or is it because I don't have much money?
Or maybe I'm just doing it wrong?

Or, is it just me?
Or, is it just me?

Is it because I don't like nepotism,
With family ties there to see me through?
Or is it because I'm still living?
Who can it be if it ain't you?

Well, maybe it's me?
Maybe it's me?

Is it just me?
Is it just me?
Track Name: Get Away
Get away
I don't need you 'round
Get away
'Cuz I'm freedom bound

I'll live the hermit's life,
I think Jerome had it right,
I'm better on my own

I don't believe in love,
There is no one I can trust,
I hurt less alone

So, get away
I don't need you 'round,
Get away
'Cuz I'm freedom bound

People just run you round,
Build you up and tear you down,
Only care for themselves

So please just let me be,
To sit here by this mountain stream,
Her song beats all else

Get away,
I don't need you 'round
Get away,
'Cuz I'm freedom bound
Track Name: Just A Game
You asked to play a game
I surely felt the same
You see, what mistake for me

You played me for a fool
Went and broke the rules
You, To a game that I believed was new

Let me tell you 'bout the way it feels
Let me tell you 'bout false reality
Let me tell you 'bout the way it feels
Let me tell you
Let me tell you

Love is just a game we play
and it's so wrong
so wrong
Love is just a stupid word
and it's too long
too long

I let you roll again
Gave me hope and then
Sent me back to where I started

I was just too blind to see
The cards hid up your sleeve
Now, I don't want to play again

Let me tell you 'bout the way it feels
Let me tell you 'bout false reality
Let me tell you 'bout the way it feels
Let me tell you
Let me tell you

Love is just a game we play
and it's so wrong
so wrong
Love is just a stupid word
and it's too long
too long


Love is just a game we play
and it's so wrong
so wrong
Love is just a stupid word
and it's too long
too long
Track Name: The Sun
Sun, the sun
Keeps on shining
Won't be gone
Just been hiding
Silly things got in the way
But now I see it's here to stay

I was trying to find myself,
But, I can tell,
All I did was lose me

Ain't it strange that when things are false
Things appear
More truly?

Sun, the sun
Keeps on shining
Won't be gone
Just been hiding
Silly things got in the way
But now I see it's here to stay

Now I'm trying to shine my light,
It hurts my eyes,
Coming from the darkness

I know it's gonna take some time,
To feel alright,
And find better planets

Sun, the sun
Keeps on shining
Won't be gone
Just been hiding
Silly things got in the way
But now I see it's here to stay
