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 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 I don’t really want to be alone I just really don’t want to be alone I really don’t want to be alone 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

Ahead 05:19
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 it would 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

Start to End 04:53
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

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?

Blast Off 03:08
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

FALLIN’ FOR YOU [Watts] Friday night By the Firefly light I was swept away I just couldn’t fight Then you smiled And my world lit up for awhile When I saw you I wasn’t blinded by the height I’m going down, down, down I’m fallin’ for you By leaps and bounds, bounds, bounds I’m soarin’ anew Feelin’ unsound, sound, sound Hope you’re feelin’ it too And it’s because I’m, I’m, I’m Just fallin’ for you Friday night Our memories ignite When you looked at me It all felt so right Then we touched And the world quieted to a hush And I knew then I wasn’t helplessly lost in plight I’m going down, down, down I’m fallin’ for you By leaps and bounds, bounds, bounds I’m soarin’ anew Feelin’ unsound, sound, sound Hope you’re feelin’ it too And it’s because I’m, I’m, I’m Just fallin’ for you And when I look at you It moves me Everything you are I…want…to…see Your brains and beauty, and heart and soul Your bruises, blemishes, dreams and goals Your strength and duty, new you and old Surrendering totally; I’m in all told And God, I hope you’re really lookin’ At me ‘Cause…can’t…you…see I’m going down, down, down I’m fallin’ for you By leaps and bounds, bounds, bounds I’m soarin’ anew Feelin’ unsound, sound, sound Hope you’re feelin’ it too And it’s because I’m, I’m, I’m Just fallin’ for you Friday night By a Belgian white Those tuxedo tees Woke me up to good advice Then I was sure That I was lost without a cure When I see you Every single fear excites I’m going down, down, down I’m fallin’ for you By leaps and bounds, bounds, bounds I’m soarin’ anew Feelin’ unsound, sound, sound Hope you’re feelin’ it too And it’s because I’m, I’m, I’m Just fallin’ for you I’m fallin’ for you I’ve fallen for you

Rose Colored 03:22
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’
8.
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
9.
Momentary 04:11
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
10.
Solitary 03:03
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
11.
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

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

Behind Me 05:03
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
