Track Name: Dreams
@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

Dreams

Now I, always dreamed of you
and I, had to believe it was true

Now you, are such a perfect dream
like rain, i fell right through the seams

Your brown eyes and the sidewalks at dawn
and the feeling you waited, waited too long
my reflections in the black green vines
and a chance that you'll never find

My dreams, are sometimes turning back
my dreams are now a budget kind
Your brown eyes and the nervous dawn
and the feeling you waited, waited too long
A true connection that you dreamed would come
the feeling you waited when you should have gone
I should have gone, I should have gone, I should have gone, I should have gone

My pretty dreams of you, my pretty dreams of me
these pretty dreams, haunt me, cause they're still beautiful to see

Track Name: I Won't Leave You
I Won't Leave You

I'm not sexy and I never knew, sometimes I don't even know what to do
but go to some forsaken place all alone it's true
now I'm not pedigreed with business trips, every other month to the Midwest
I'm not the one spending time every year at the lake

but I, I won't leave you, I won't leave you anymore
no I, I won't leave you, I won't leave you like before

Sometimes I want to spend some space out of time, early afternoon in a bar with my wine
staring out from the darkness to the the light outside
your lies don't fit you and you eyes start to waver, so sorry that I'm not much of a savior
but I waited outside the rooms only your mind knows

so I, I won't leave you, I won't leave you anymore
no I, I won't leave you, I won't leave you like before
no I, you know I'm trying, I'm up here dying
yeah I, I am trying, and I'm buying

Track Name: All I Ever Wanted
All I Ever Wanted

It's Seven o' clock and, I'm just wasted
I'm wasted from life
It's Seven o' clock and, I'm not waiting
so leave it on the phone it's alright

Can't say nothing cause it's everything
something that could find you
something to remind you
Can't say nothing cause it's everyone
Sneaking round the old ruins,
With the fog to haunt you
All I ever wanted

Flying in to Rome, always draws you in
though you just came for the car
All my friends are, like strange Angels
while I'm face down at the bar

Can't say nothing cause it's everything
something that could find you
something to remind you
Can't say nothing cause it's everyone
Sneaking round the old ruins,
With the fog to haunt you
All I ever wanted

It's Seven o' clock and, I'm just wasted
I'm wasted from life..
Track Name: San Francisco
San Francisco, you are gone
and things don't seem better
San Francisco, you are gone for me
and things don't seem easier

I gave a lifetime remembering
each and everything
yes and I spent a lifetime
remembering everything
Track Name: A Girl
In and out, of the shadows I go
sometimes it's clear, sometimes I just don't know
In and out, of the shadows I go
sometimes it's clear, sometimes I just don't know

And I wonder how, do I get, a girl like you
I wonder how, do I get, someone like you?
still I wonder
Track Name: Summer Blonde
You sold to the pacific rim
you walked between moving trains
like pale moonlight on the water

When we talked I'd see you smile
how does one describe?
A souls darkness

You called a simple curse and
I had to run far away
Track Name: A Perfect Day
I know that you don't have no love for me
I know that you won't ever wait for me
I know that you ain't ever coming home
But I'm to self absorbed to call you up and
I'm too self absorbed to pick you up and
I'm to self absorbed to win your love

But I wish I could, I wish I could
If I had the chance, I really wish I would

If I knew that you could be the one, I'd
gladly line up in a ten year line
knowing we were gonna meet one day
I think that I would wanna settle down
yeah I think that I could settle down I'd
stop my aimless pointless silly ways

But I can't be sure, you could be an assassin
and I hope your not, I truly hope your not

One day you are gonna have a day
the kind of day that comes up naturally
the kind where every thing you do works fine
I know that I am gonna see you smile
I know that I won't want to be far from you
I hope that you'll want to spend your time...

On a perfect day,
In a perfect hour
In a perfect time
On a perfect day
On a perfect day...
Track Name: The Grove
I went down,
to the grove
where I found you

We talked a while
I listened well
I felt a thrill

The sun broke thorough,
the tender leaves
and in your eyes,
found myself, wandering

don't run away, don't run away
I will stay

When we meet again,
in the grove
I know our past will rest and be still
For you my love,
For you my dear
I will keep
Track Name: Ode
Ode to the bay

The city is a jewel, it's got every facet covered
down the bay, San Mateo, still has a little flair

but south of the Dumbarton are mud flats and no ships sail
all we have by the shore, are the grounds of the ordinary
bones of the ordinary..

And I dream of the train bridge there, as I fall asleep
it is where I'll test my mettle or fall into cold retreat

Call the old ghost trains, I'll feel the wildness there
I'll watch all my steps and I'll keep my souvenirs

The marsh dwellers had, their folklore and their legends
and marsh people had, their ancient prophecies

San Jose is watching, dusty in late afternoon,
a night cap is falling down, upon the weary heads

So say goodnight, to the Dumbarton, to the wind and the mud
and to where no ships set sail, by the shore we have watched

Say goodnight to the bridge lights and suns last orphaned glow
Say goodnight by the shore to the grounds of the ordinary, grounds of the ordinary
bones of our ordinary..
grounds of the ordinary, grounds of the ordinary, bones of our ordinary..
