Sunset 03:52
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...

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....

I'll Be Gone 02:55
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...

Birds 03:51
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….
