Track Name: Living With Myself
LIVING WITH MYSELF (Watts)

Another daybreak
Breaks me again
The sun shines
But I cast shadows instead

Never feeling quite whole
Is just the half of it
I’ve nothing to hold onto
And I’m starting to slip


Never gonna be cool
Never gonna be hot
Never gonna be someone
Always gonna be stopped
Never gonna be young
Only gonna get old
And the more I open up
The more I want to fold
So you’ll just find me here living with myself


Another Friday
Set adrift by the night
Alone in the dark
Praying for some kind of light

My thoughts beat me down
From when things were looking up
Weathering the storm
Has weather me more than enough
Track Name: Ahead
Ahead (Watts)

So she’s gone now
And so am I
To the man I was before
Goodbye

So suddenly
She up and left
Not ever
Would I have guessed

She told me would it be all right
She told me it wasn’t meant to be
She told me look forward, not back
At which I laughed so heartily


And why would I look ahead?
When I’ve lost the will
No, there’s nothing there
Yes, I know the drill
When I look ahead
Everything is stark
When I look ahead
It’s life in the dark


Love of my life
Girl of my dreams
You ripped me apart
And not at the seams

Bitch of my past
Wrecker of me
Won’t take your advice
I’ll just sink with glee

You told me would it be all right
You told me it wasn’t meant to be
You told me look forward, not back
At which I laughed so heartily


And why would I look ahead?
When I’ve lost the will
No, there’s nothing there
Yes, I know the drill
When I look ahead
Everything is stark
When I look ahead
It’s life in the dark


You told me would it be all right
You told me it wasn’t meant to be
You told me look forward, not back
At which I laughed so heartily
At which I laughed so gleefully
At which I laughed so deceitfully
At which I laughed so furiously
At which I laughed
At which I laughed
At which I laughed
Track Name: Start to End
Start to End (Watts)

When we are young we believe
In a love that’s so naïve
But when we’re young we don’t conceive
That love brings only grief

My love
It’s your love
The search for it has left me lost
Now my hate
It’s just too late
Finding you came at such a cost

But with hope we’ll fall again
And can’t forget remembering then
On our way down we try to stay Zen
It’s like we don’t know when to say when

My love
It’s your love
The search for it has left me lost
Now my hate
It’s just too late
Finding you came at such a cost

It starts with a first date, and it ends with such seething hate
It starts with passion and romance, and ends with an icy glance
It starts with finding a pearl, and it ends with the end of the world
It starts with finding the one, and it ends with admitting it’s done
It starts with a grand display, and ends with a turning away
It starts with a happy day, and it ends with a sad parade
Track Name: Perfect Woman
Perfect Woman [Watts]

Through the ether
And the fog
I search for her
Because maybe this
Is only prologue

And anchored by a long wait
All I can do is hold on

No, she doesn’t come here often
If she fell from heaven it’s something I missed
If her legs are tired she’s run right past me
Does a nice girl like her ever come to a place like this?


I’m still looking for the perfect woman
Should I just give up?
Or give in?
I’m only human
And she’s always looming
Over me


Over the rainbow
But beneath the stars
I can’t find her
But maybe she’s just
Under my radar

And anchored by a long wait
All I can do is hold on

No, she doesn’t come here often
If she fell from heaven it’s something I missed
If her legs are tired she’s run right past me
Does a nice girl like her ever come to a place like this?


I’m still looking for the perfect woman
Should I just give up?
Or give in?
I’m only human
And she’s always looming
Over me


No, she doesn’t come here often
If she fell from heaven it’s something I missed
If her legs are tired she’s run right past me
Does a nice girl like her ever come to a place like this?
Does a nice girl like her ever come to a place like this?
Does a nice girl like her ever come to a place like this?
Track Name: Blast Off
BLAST OFF [Watts]


You mesmerize from across the room
I’m caught
I close in, maybe to my doom
You’re sought
I see infinity in your eyes
You’re hot
Like what’s above us in the skies
Here’s my shot


You’re so heavenly baby
So powerful I’m breaking free
Your beauty leaves me racing
To cut space ‘tween you to me
I’m turning on my axis
Only to get closer to you
Will you leave me in the stratus?
Or let me sail right on through?


I want to soar with you lady
Blast off
Will you match my orbit or call me crazy?
Blast off
My course is causing me concern
Blast off
Cause I sure hope I don’t crash and burn
Blast off


You’re so heavenly baby
So powerful I’m breaking free
Your beauty leaves me racing
To cut space ‘tween you to me
I’m turning on my axis
Only to get closer to you
Will you leave me in the stratus?
Or let me sail right on through?

Blast off
10, 9, 8, 7
Blast off
6, 5, 4, 3
Blast off
2, 1
Blast off
Now lets fall in love
Track Name: Fallin' For You
FALLIN’ FOR YOU [Watts]

Friday night
Firefly light
Swept away
I couldn’t fight

You smiled
And you lit up
You spoke
And I listened up
I knew
That I wasn’t givin’ up
Then my search
Didn’t have me feelin’ so down anymore
No I wasn’t feelin’ so down
Not when I saw you


When I look at you
Brains and beauty
When I see you
Strong but goofy
When I’m with you
Poetry that moves me
And when I meet your eyes
I know that I’m fallin’ for you


Friday night
Memories ignite
You looked at me
And it felt so right

We kissed
No more breathing
We touched
Space and time leaving
I knew
Just what I was feeling
Then my loneliness
Didn’t have me feelin’ so down anymore
No I wasn’t feelin’ so down
Not when I touched you


When I look at you
Brains and beauty
When I see you
Strong but goofy
When I’m with you
Poetry that moves me
And when I meet your eyes
I know that I’m fallin’ for you


Friday night
That’s tonight
Away together
My question excites

I ask
Will you set of with me?
You and I
Off on our own journey
There is no one
Else with whom I’d rather be
And us together
Make sense of the madness in this mad, mad world
Yes, us together
Makes sense of this world


When I look at you
Brains and beauty
When I see you
Strong but goofy
When I’m with you
Poetry that moves me
And when I meet your eyes
I see that I’m fallin’ for you

I know that I’m fallin’ for you

I know that I’ve fallen for you
Track Name: Rose Colored
Rose Colored [Watts]

Yesterday life seemed hard
But I’ve softened fast
Today I’m falling
And no longer stalling
Could this be it?
At last

I’ve really let myself go
Yes, I’ve come down hard
I’m wide-awake
Cause this doesn’t feel fake
I think I found her
En garde!


The whole world’s gone
It’s all gone rose colored
Is it real?
If it’s real
I’m recovered
And should I
And should I stutter
The words I hear
Hear when I’m fluttered
Maybe it’s time
Time to say
I
love
‘I love you’


Everything feels so easy
Didn’t think it would
Seems like it should feel
Much harder than carbon steel
Didn’t see it being this good

And I’m so scared of history
Yes, my past is loud
Should I listen?
Or keep dismissing
And leave my head in the clouds


The whole world’s gone
It’s all gone rose colored
Is it real?
If it’s real
I’m recovered
And should I
And should I stutter
The words I hear
Hear when I’m fluttered
Maybe it’s time
Time to say
I
love
‘I love you’
Track Name: Tell Me When It's Over
Tell Me When It's Over [Watts]

You don’t stand so close
You pull away instead of lean in
You avert my gaze
In so many ways
I sense our ride
Is coming to
Quite an unhappy end


I’m closing my eyes
Tell me when it’s over
I’m closing my eyes
So tell me when it’s over
I didn’t love you anyway
Please tell me when it’s over


I think you’re telling lies
You say you’re fine but I can sure tell
You won’t even laugh
At the jokes that I craft
I sense our ride
Is heading for
A very unhappy end


I’m closing my eyes
Tell me when it’s over
I’m closing my eyes
So tell me when it’s over
I didn’t love you anyway
Please tell me when it’s over


But I might still love you
I think I still love you
Oh, I think still love you
I do still love you
Track Name: Momentary
Momentary (Watts)

You were momentary
Nothing but temporary
I thought we could be happy
Oh yeah

Away I let you carry me
Gave you the shovel to bury me
Since you were momentarily
For me


Our alchemy
It grew inside of me

And so naturally
We lined up perfectly

With you
Then without you
Time is so cruel

Merging
Then parting
Yes, I was a fool


You were momentary
Nothing but temporary
I thought we could be happy
Oh yeah

Away I let you carry me
Gave you the shovel to bury me
Since you were momentarily
For me


The monotony
Calmed like a breeze

Now instantly
I feel empty

Our joy
Was just my joy
Did not know you

Our short time
Haunts my mind
Yes, I was a fool


You were momentary
Nothing but temporary
I thought we could be happy
Oh yeah

Away I let you carry me
Gave you the shovel to bury me
Since you were momentarily
For me
Track Name: Solitary
SOLITARY (Watts)

So it’s just me, myself and I
Again everything just went so damn awry
I might have missed the mark, lost the spark, but gave it the old college try
Devoid of, do you hold for love, and stay on the line?


Am I meant for solitude?
Is it my ineptitude?
I’ll just build up my gratitude
For you
When you finally get here
When will you get here?
I’ll be waiting right here
Where are you?


So will this pause linger or fly?
Thought we were close, though we were such a far cry
Should I curl up now, take a bow, and wither and die?
Dream girl of mine, give me a sign, are you nearby?


Am I meant for solitude?
Is it my ineptitude?
I’ll just build up my gratitude
For you
When you finally get here
When will you get here?
I’ll be waiting right here
Where are you?


Oh, I’m laying low
Oh, Can’t take another blow
Oh, Will I ever be someone’s Romeo?

So it’s just me, myself and I
Again everything just went so damn awry
Track Name: Blast From the Past
Blast From the Past [Watts]

Out in the world today
Just minding my storm
And there you were again
It hadn’t been too long

Familiar smile
Familiar smell
Familiar eyes
Familiar hell

We took different paths
And now here you are
Standing right in front of me
I know I must stay strong

You’re a blast from the past
And you’ve knocked me off my feet
It’s such a contrast
Now there’s no ‘complete’
You’re a blast from my past
All I want to do is leave

You look just the same
Like when you moved on
Did I really let you go?
Do you see that I’m gone?

Familiar style
Familiar tell
Familiar guise
Familiar cell

We took different paths
And now here you are
Digging deep inside of me
I know I must stay strong

You’re a blast from the past
And you’ve knocked me off my feet
It’s such a contrast
Yesterday’s now on repeat
You’re a blast from my past
And I hope you don’t leave

You’ve stirred things up
You stir me up
You’re stirring
Track Name: Changing Tunes
CHANGING TUNES (Watts)

“You catch my riff?” she said
As we sat on her bed
She asked, “What are the thoughts in your head?”
And then she harmonized so sweetly, I could see a light instead

And suddenly I wasn’t just passing through
I was moving on
I was moving to

And that’s when I found myself surprised again
I found myself whole
I found myself new

And that day
It changed
Her tune
Rearranged
On me

Would she stay
Or estrange
I felt
Deranged
And lonely


Yes it’s like every tune you’ve ever heard before
It’s always moving round and round and through the chords
Will you let it linger, do you pretend?
Do you let go, and let it end?


“It’s not all you,” she cried
As we stood at the door
I asked, “How often do solos collide?”
And she just went silent, there was no melody anymore

And then I felt myself coming to
I was falling down
I was falling through
That’s when I found my joy replaced again

I saw a life lost
Life without you

And one day
That changed
Again it
Rearranged
On me

Felt betrayed
And exchanged
But so
Grateful
And happy


Yes it’s like every tune you’ve ever heard before
It’s always moving round and round and through the chords
Will you let it linger, do you pretend?
Do you let go, and let it end?


Only time will tell
Oh yes, only time will tell
Stay in time, it’s just as well
Things change often, best not dwell
‘Cause it’s only time that will tell

“Now it’s our life,” she sighed
As we watched the night sky
There were so many years left for us to spend
And she smiled at me so sweetly, I felt so lucky and so high

I had always feared it was her I might lose
Now she made life great
She made life move
And that’s when I found myself whole again

I found my life bright
Found my life renewed


Yes it’s like every tune you’ve ever heard before
It’s always moving round and round and through the chords
Yes it’s like every tune you’ve ever heard before
It’s always moving round and round and through the chords

Only time will tell
Oh yes, only time will tell
Stay in time, it’s just as well
Things change often, best not dwell
‘Cause it’s only time that will tell
Track Name: Behind Me
Behind Me [Watts]

Everything that came around
That was creeping up without a sound
That was tap, tap, tappin’ on my door
That I’d answered once or twice before

Everything that brought me low
Has just seemed to up, up, up and go
The sun is really shining right ahead
She’s sticking with me cause that’s what she said

I’m leaving all that pain behind me
Dropped it off and thanked it kindly
Then snuck away and left it slyly
Now I say that pain’s behind me

But what’s that sneaking up
Silently
What’s that I can’t seem to shake
Violently
Will it go if I hold my breath
Quietly
What’s that sneaking up
Behind me

Everything that came around
Is still creeping without a sound
Still tap, tappin’ on my door
Should I answer like I did before

Everything that brought me low
Just seems to up, up, up and grow
My doubts sound with breeding dread
Can’t forget all she ever said

Thought it was all behind me
Found it yet again and hold it tightly
Don’t know if I’m daft entirely
Or if I should run from what’s behind me

And when I look into her eyes
I see its shape and size
Reflected there
Behind me
