Track Name: That's Not You
things are getting so hard
you know you wanna give up now
I don't know how you could allow that to pass
I know you've gotten so far
how could you turn back now?
I can tell that you're looking backwards to the past

that's not
that's not
that's not you

gone away for so long
I almost miss your face
but I know what you did to me
can't be erased
the girl I used to know
one day slipped away
and all that I have left is the memory of the day

that's not
that's not
that's not you

who can say why some things change
and some things stay the same
it was all so long ago
you can't be ashamed, no
you'll never be ashamed

that's not
that's not
that's not you

no it's just not you
no that's not you
Track Name: The Other Way
and I think I should have taken the other way
yes I guess I should have taken the other way

I have come to see
I gotta turn the other way
else I'm going to seal my fate my friend
my friend
time to change my tune
what else could I do
time to turn the other cheek my friend
my friend

and I think I should have taken the other way
yes I guess I could have taken the other way

all the words they don't mean much
you had them in your clutch
and I guess I should have known my friend
my friend
how was I to see
you wanna make a fool of me
I don't think you're gonna like how that ends
how that ends

and I think I should have taken the other way
yes I guess I should have taken the other way

I don't know who think you are
but it don't look like you're getting far

and I think I should have taken the other way
(other way)
yes I guess I should have taken the other way
(other way)
and I know I should have taken the other way
(other way)
yes I guess I should have taken the other way
Track Name: That's Alright
are you having fun my dear
how you feeling now
did it go just like you planned
are you feeling proud
the look that's on your face
priceless as can be
standing in your shame
like you'll always be
like you'll always

that's alright

I hope you had your fun
hope you had your way
giving all that you can give
to whoever wants to take
go on find someone else
someone who'll play your games
you're all history now
and that's not going to change
that's not going to

that's alright
Track Name: Give Me A Chance
torn in two
so sick of lying
things are going so bad
I can't help but want to deny it
at the brink
at the break of day
I know you wanna turn around
you're so far
but I can't blame you

just give me a chance
just give me a chance
just give me a chance
hold on

I almost feel
like things are doing so good
something's going to turn around
I won't have to wish and hope
and I almost feel
like I've been forgotten
no one cares now
time to draw the final curtain

just give me a chance
just give me a chance
just give me a chance
hold on

one by one
things are going right now
no more waiting
no more praying wishing hoping

just give me a chance
just give me a chance
just give me a chance
hold on

just give me a chance
hold on
Track Name: Missed Connection
it was a girl in a pink dress
standing in a grocery line
looked my way
asked me if I had the time
didn't get her name
guess I gotta go online

missed connection
missed connection
happens all the time
missed connection

you were at the bar
watching football on tv
you had short hair
drinking long island ice tea
if that sounds like you
please write back to me

missed connection
missed connection
happens all the time
missed connection

I know there's gotta be some better way
but now I'm checking craigslist and I'm looking least fifty times a day

missed connection
missed connection
happens all the time
missed connection

missed connection
missed connection
Track Name: My Song
another fine day
things couldn't be better
can't find a place
I don't belong
it's alright if things run together
ok sometimes if there's no rhyme

I don't know why life can't be like that
I don't care it's my song
I don't mind living in a fantasy
I don't mind cause it's my song
I don't mind cause it's my song

in the sunshine
you're my summer
in the nighttime
you're my star
some of these lines
start to makes sense
I can erase
when things go wrong

I don't know why life can't be like that
I don't care it's my song
I don't mind living in a fantasy
I don't mind cause it's my song
I don't mind cause it's my song

another fine way
things are getting better
I don't feel
like something's wrong
nothing reminds me
of your face
nothing reminds me
you're long gone
Track Name: Over The Internet
click click click
tapping on a screen
strange how things go
how you feel so mean
scifi future got you so uptight
better take your shades off
cause it ain't looking bright

are you on sleep mode
did you put up a wall
what's the status now
every cloud is gonna fall

I'm over the internet
I'm feeling so out of it
if this is good as it gets
I'm over the internet

ever wonder why things are getting so bad
everyone's so lucky they forget the past
getting high on yourself must feel so rad
remember when emotions were a thing you had

are you on sleep mode
did you put up a wall
what's the status now
every cloud is gonna fall

I'm over the internet
I'm feeling so out of it
if this is good as it gets
I'm over the internet

remember what it's like to go outside
remember what it's like to control your life
remember what it's like to stand in the sun
this brain drain game don't feel so fun

I'm over the internet
I'm feeling so out of it
if this is good as it gets
I'm over the internet

I'm over the internet
I'm over the internet
I'm over the internet
I'm over the internet
Track Name: Long Road Ahead
long road ahead
in front of me
gonna go ahead see where it leads
where it leads

if you wanna see
you can come with me
you can go alone
you're free
you're free

maybe I don't really know what I want
but I know I wanna spend some time with you
it's true

all the old cliches come out of me
when I'm not happy
you'll see

then someone like you is in front of me
maybe I can be honest

maybe I don't really know what I want
but I know I wanna spend some time with you
it's true

long road ahead
in front of me
gonna go ahead see where it leads
