Track Name: Sunset
I walked a broken road, down to a place we used to go
It's a different world this time around
The evening is still quite warm, the water is slow and shallow,
Our footsteps are buried underneath the ground

Oh sun,
Don't set on me

I took my pocket change, cancelled my old investment
Said I would find my way from here
The sun set in gold that night, I knew I owned the sky and
I felt my vision start to clear

Oh sun,
Don't set on me

Oh sun,
I wanted to love someone,
I wanted to love someone,
I wanted to love someone for life

I wanted to love someone,
I wanted to love someone,
I just wanted to love someone for life

Sometimes I think it strange, the Earth turning endlessly,
Somehow still moving on
I catch a glimpse of the truth each time I go this route,
there's something there I didn't see before

Oh sun,
Don't set on me,
Don't set on me

I wanted to love someone,
I wanted to love someone,
I wanted to love someone for life

I wanted to love someone,
I wanted to love someone,
I just wanted to love someone for life...
Track Name: Too Many Love Songs
Too much pop on the radio and the TV stations,
Take the new songs and shut 'em out
We were dialed into stupid high expectations
Of everyday life and everyday love

When I called into question the lengths we go to to fit in
I couldn't see the end
I had written eleven ballads for my boyfriend and
Picked up my pen

I've written too many love songs in the face of my fear
since I've been with you
Why do I feel like a winner in someone else's shoes?
I've written too many love songs
I wish they were true

There was pop on the patio and there was a case of beer
We keep on pushing the envelope
I know it's irresponsible to drink for attention
It's either lose out or lose myself

And I counted the coasters, the kisses to my collar
Feeling angry and confused
I want not to want to, I hate the mainstream, the media
I realize that I've been used

I've written too many love songs in the face of my fear
since I've been with you
Why do I feel like a winner in someone else's shoes?
I've written too many love songs
I wish they were true

I've written too many love songs...
Too many love songs....
Track Name: I'll Be Gone
It’d be so nice to see you again,
Don’t know if I ever will
I’m so tired of wishing and waiting
For you to come back home, for you come back home

I’ve been all around this town but I would like to see it all
I want time and I want money,
I want everything this world can give me
‘Cause one day I’ll be gone, one day I’ll be gone

I’d like to sing our song again
And never change a word
But I can’t keep running in circles,
Waiting for my turn, waiting for my turn

I’ve been all around this town but I would like to see it all,
I want love and I want family,
I want everything this world can give me
‘Cause one day I’ll be gone, one day I’ll be gone

I’ve been all around this town but I would like to see it all,
I want love and I want family,
I want everything this world can give me
‘Cause one day I’ll be gone, one day I’ll be...
Track Name: Birds
Sweet little bird, singing your song,
Never be silent
Showing your heart, knowing the truth,
Does anyone buy it?
Day after day, never faced
Or even acknowledged
If I go away, far far away,
would anyone notice?

Seeing the world, spreading the word,
The wisest reporter
No one understands, tired ears
Denying the problem
He’s flying away, far, far away
He gave up his permit
Leaves a quiet place, empty and grey
Can anyone hear it?

Songs to write, tales to tell….
