Track Name: Don't Think Twice, It's Alright (Bob Dylan Cover)
Written by Bob Dylan
Track Name: No Big Deal (Live at Sun '09)
NO BIG DEAL

I'm alright
But I'm trying to stay up through the night
To keep myself from feeling lonely

And everything is fine
I make the best of all my time
By waking up late after morning

This is so me
Forgetting what to say
Let's take one step back
From everything that's changed
This is the start of something new
Back to old familiar roots
This is the greatest way of falling down
I'm landing with my inside out

Cause what I need is to be just me
And with every song of mine
I'd love to change your mind
But what I feel could be no big deal
And in everything I do
I might never get my point across to you

So days want more
I find myself back in the norm
And figure out my next direction

But easily I get so bored
On my back laying on the floor
Tuning out the world I know
And living as a one man show

And this is so me
For lack of better words
Slowly moving
The path was never worse
But this is the start of something new
Back to old familiar roots
This is the greatest way of falling down
I'm landing with my inside out

Cause what I need is to be just me
And with every song of mine
I'd love to change your mind
But what I feel could be no big deal
And in everything I do
I might never get my point across to you
Track Name: One Way Road (Live from Sweetwater)
ONE WAY ROAD

So I’m giving what you want
But I can’t get my hands on what you’ve got
You big teaser, playing games
But I can play them too, I’m just the same

You’re moving on, I see it
But my eyes, they don’t believe it
‘Cause inside I feel
There ain’t nothing more real so…

I’ve been waited and I want you to know
Your love is irreplaceable
inside of my emotions
But this falling is getting old
So bye-bye love
It’s a one way road

Knocked down and thrown back
I’m losing my mind and my plan of attack
So reload or explode
It’s getting pretty crazy
‘cause I want you to know

I’m moving on, you’ll see it
Then your heart will stop receiving
All the things I’d do
If we weren’t through so…

I’ve been waited and I want you to know
Your love is irreplaceable
inside of my emotions
But this falling is getting old
So bye-bye love
It’s a one way road

So anyway
What you say
It doesn’t mean much to me now
‘Cause what I need
Is just to be
Everything I am without you
So I guess you lose

I’ve been waited and I want you to know
Your love is irreplaceable
inside of my emotions
But this falling is getting old
So bye-bye love
It’s a one way road

I’ve been waited and I want you to know
Your love is irreplaceable
inside of my emotions
But this falling is getting old
So bye-bye love
It’s a one way road

It’s a one way
It’s a one way
It’s a one way road
Track Name: The Way You Do (Live from Sweetwater)
THE WAY YOU DO

She's not waiting
As I sit here and concentrate on reasons I'm alone
And I'm just saving
A little space to hold my grace on seasons made of stone

So maybe I'm just a photograph for her to laught at
Seems that I don't want her back, I do

Seems to me a little bit crazy
Hard to think I'm in the middle of a maze
But still I feel a little real killing time
Seems to me a little too hard
I jumped the gun and I ran too far
And slowly I feel too
I feel the way you do

So move a little fast and make me the last
I feel a little down and want you around
And suddenly another me feels a little loss for words

Oh then I'll see
This ain't the place that I want to be
So sorry if I fail to see your view

Seems to me a little bit crazy
Hard to think I'm in the middle of a maze
But still I feel a little real killing time
Seems to me a little too hard
I jumped the gun and I ran too far
And slowly I feel too
I feel the way you do

Oh then I'll see
This ain't the place that I want to be
So sorry if I fail to see your view

Seems to me a little bit crazy
Hard to think I'm in the middle of a maze
But still I feel a little real killing time
Seems to me a little too hard
I jumped the gun and I ran too far
And slowly I feel too
I feel the way you do
Track Name: Two Bit (Demo)
TWO BIT

You could do me right
Or you could do me wrong
Play your game
Try to put me on
But you won’t get what you want from me
I’m not one for two-bit kinds, you see
Yeah I know your type
And I know your game
I don’t think you want to start with me

You can walk around
Act like you want
Shine the glitz
And ritz the talk
But you’re one more B in line with S
I confess you seem to have it made
You play the part
And you know the lines
You’ve got it down inside you’re two-bit mind

Well you could do me right
And you could do me wrong
I could play your games
And try to put you on
But seeing how you know so much
Your attitude ain’t nothin’ I could touch
Yeah, you play the part
And you know the lines
You’ve got it down inside that two-bit mind
Track Name: Night To Remember (Demo)
I've been waiting for this night for so long
You let your hair down,
We'll paint this whole town

So much fun when the weekend comes, it's crazy
I'll take the car keys,
I'll be your safety

We'll hit the bar and stay
For a Friday night parade
And if it gets too bad we can call a cab to get home

1,2,3 it's time for us to leave
To get a chance to breathe
How are you feeling?
All I need is you right next to me
Don't need another drink
This is the real thing
You are so lovely
A perfect night to remember

I can see the sweat glisten down you face
You rule this whole place
Dancing your life away
I would hate to wreck all of this magic
Don't make this tragic
Just keep on laughing

Another club is used
For cigarrettes and booze
If it gets too bad we can call a cab to get home

1,2,3 it's time for us to leave
To get a chance to breathe
How are you feeling?
All I need is you right next to me
Don't need another drink
This is the real thing
You are so lovely
A perfect night to remember

1,2,3 it's time for us to leave
To get a chance to breathe
How are you feeling?
All I need is you right next to me
Don't need another drink
This is the real thing
This is so lovely
A perfect night to remember
Track Name: Love Who's Lost (2003 Demo)
LOVE WHO'S LOST

I'm holding you tonight
But only in my mind
Could this be the last time for a love who's lost
To meet up once again
Again I see you, dream you
Place you in my thoughts
If only you were with me
Could I have a better shot

'Cause I wonder how you do without me
Do without those things you know you want
And I wonder why you're so high on me
And I'm so high on things that I forgot
Oooh, where is love?

I'll tell you everything
But it's not what it seems
Another late night promise for a love who's lost
To meet up once again
Again I dream you, think you
Are thinking of me too
But I'm not for certain,
I never could learn how this whole thing worked out

And I wonder how you do without me
Do without those things you know you want
And I wonder why you're so high on me
And I'm so high on things that I forgot
Oooh, where is love?

Again, again I see you, dream you
Wish that I could stop to breathe
You hold me down but keep me up all night
The same old same has happened, lasted
A love of laughing that I could not resist
Well it still exists but it's alright

And I wonder how you do without me
Do without those things you know you want
And I wonder why you're so high on me
And I'm so high on things that I forgot
Track Name: So Typical (Early Live Version)
SO TYPICAL

This morning sky won’t clear up
Feels like it’s been raining 3 whole months
But maybe if we chin up
We could turn the days into what we want

And so, for everything, I’m sorry
It’s so typical, don’t worry about it

Filling in the outlines
Of memories that we could never draw in
Then running in these circles
Will make us dizzy, we’ll just keep on falling

And so, for everything, I’m sorry
It’s so typical, don’t worry about it

We just need to situate ourselves
Get away, just evacuate this hell
Maybe take a short vacation
A little rest and relaxation
Could never hurt all for something so typical

So, for everything, I’m sorry
It’s so typical, don’t worry about it
And so, for everything, I’m sorry
It’s so typical, don’t worry about it
Track Name: So Typical (Original Home Demo)
SO TYPICAL

This morning sky won’t clear up
Feels like it’s been raining 3 whole months
But maybe if we chin up
We could turn the days into what we want

And so, for everything, I’m sorry
It’s so typical, don’t worry about it

Filling in the outlines
Of memories that we could never draw in
Then running in these circles
Will make us dizzy, we’ll just keep on falling

And so, for everything, I’m sorry
It’s so typical, don’t worry about it

We just need to situate ourselves
Get away, just evacuate this hell
Maybe take a short vacation
A little rest and relaxation
Could never hurt all for something so typical

So, for everything, I’m sorry
It’s so typical, don’t worry about it
And so, for everything, I’m sorry
It’s so typical, don’t worry about it
Track Name: Up To Me (Original Home Demo)
UP TO ME

You want to feel loose
You want to feel how I’m abused, I see
You want to get faded
You never want to concentrate on me
I’m too much of an angel
I’m too much of a saint,
Thought I can’t be
I’m too much of reject,
You don’t expect much from

I want to feel safe
I want to feel like I’m not hated too
I want to get closer
I want to feel the most I’d get from you
I’m too much on the rebound,
I’m too much on the ground,
But you can’t be
You’re always getting higher,
You don’t desire me

So what’ve I got to prove?
What’ve I got to lose
When you’re not worth fighting for?
And why am I feeling down
While you’re out messing around?
You’re not worth begging for

Just wanted to stop by
Just wanted to see you one last time
Just wanted to say bye
Just wanted to get you off my mind
Just wanted to fit in
But then I saw you with him

So what’ve I got to prove?
What’ve I got to lose
When you’re not worth fighting for?
And why am I feeling down
While you’re out messing around?
You’re not worth begging for

It's up to me, It's up to me
And I'm still falling
It's up to me, It's up to me
And I'm still calling

(It’s up to me)
And I’m still hoping
For you to hold me
To let you go
But for all you know
I’m already gone
Track Name: Hover (Live from Sweetwater)
HOVER

Shelter me
Keep me inside
Keep me alive
Help to me
You keep me in line
And I’ll keep you for mine

You hover over me
You hover over me

Cover me,
A blanket of you
In all that you do
Smother me
With all that is true
Only from you

You hover over me
You hover over me

You and your sympathy
Sounds like a symphony
A song you keep singing to me
Here I am safe with you
Here I can’t wait for you
And all that you’ve given to me

You hover over me
You hover over me
You hover over me
You hover over me
Track Name: Fix Me (Extended Version)
FIX ME

Look at my face, you can't tell
Wouldn't know it hides well
Can't let go, it's in my blood
It's all I ever wanted

Slowing down, I can't move
I battle my faith to get through
Can't let go, I'm holding on
It's all I ever wanted

So where did i go wrong?
You've got me singing the same songs
Now you hold my own heart against me
I can't say if I tried enough
I can't tell if I want too much
I was there when you needed mending
Now I need you to fix me

Turn around, it's okay
I'll find a new course each day
Can't let go, it's way too hard
it's all I ever wanted

You've taken from me when you hurt
Another soundtrack for your world
Use my words and don't look back
That's all you ever wanted

So where did i go wrong?
You've got me singing the same songs
Now you hold my own heart against me
I can't say if I tried enough
I can't tell if I want too much
I was there when you needed mending
Now I need you to fix me
Track Name: Open Road (Demo)
OPEN ROAD

Heading out on an open road
All I know is I'll never be alone
Hotel rooms and wasted food
Downtown walks not knowing what to do

Open road is calling me home
It's tracing my thoughts on pavement and stone
Open road is wearing me down
I've been here before, I've been to this town

Sunlight hits the dashboard dust
Beads of ice around an empty cup
You're sleeping next me, in the afternoon at three
Writing songs on an old napkin
Reaching over to touch your skin
Tells me we'll survive, we can make it back by five

Open road is calling me home
It's tracing my thoughts on pavement and stone
Open road is wearing me down
I've been here before, I've been to this town
