1.
A magazine and a pack of nicotine gum A thousand bucks and a suitcase from my mum Five clean shirts and a picture of my son, I won't be long I'm not sure exactly where I'll stay So I packed a sleeping bag just in case I've gone on and on with the same old song and dance Meanwhile my Bonnie's moved on all the way to France If this is really what I want all along I must be strong and take a chance It'll cost a lot but I'm not afraid I sold two guitars to help pay my way Won't she be surprised, won't she be surprised Let's make our date this Christmas in Paris Won't she be surprised when the clock strikes midnight And I've traveled a million miles only for a new year's kiss I'm twenty-nine and I know what I must do It's time for a little romantic rendez-vous Can I manage all this baggage? Will I finally make my big move? Together we both learned what love means And she taught me what I can be
2.
One twist too much And the coil forgets what it's learned And hearts like ours won't admit When they've been burned A shortcut to a steady slide Couldn't handle it yourself So you took me along for the ride The bridge was rotted through But we promised to meet at the centre All the ropes get pulled And demand a quiet surrender A shortcut to a steady slide Couldn't handle it yourself So you took me along for the ride We cry out from lonely tombs Wrap neon signs around these wounds That say you still can't make it alone
3.
An hour to kill in a sleepy little town Nothing much to do but walk around But I don't mind that there's nothing to do Because I know soon I'll be seeing you The cloudy sky that's just about to rain I'll never see a sky that sweet again And the streets they look so pretty And the houses look so sweet Because this is where you and I will meet I'll wait for you I'm happy to and I'll look up and down This nowhere town The sun's gone down and now it's getting late But I don't mind, I'm content to wait And dream of getting married In the church up on the hill When you get here I'll ask you if you will I'll wait for you I'm happy to and I'll look up and down This nowhere town And everywhere I'll see you there
4.
If I put my hands before my head again Know my heart is still behind both of them So when I betrayed myself I betrayed a friend Well, I'm sorry for what I did, not for who I am But I still see you everywhere Even though you are not there Even though I'm hardly here myself Said I still see you everywhere I sometimes wish I didn't care 'Bout little things like who, what, why, When, how, and where So if I jump the gun after doing laps so long Well, I'm sorry for what I did, not for who I am Just once was not enough for the touch Of your hand in mine And once was not enough for the touch Of your body baby, please be with me Just once was not enough for the touch Of fingertips on lips that linger and long for a kiss That signals me to know Once was not enough For who I am Yeah once was not enough To see you everywhere Once was not enough for your touch
5.
What a Fool 01:17
Who you thinking of When we're making love I know it's him What a fool I've been to believe you On this bed you lay But you're so far away You're keeping company With your memories I won't be witness to I won't play substitute I've got much better things to do
6.
Roland 01:36
Up and up I've found my love Lying over the sea Between the wine, the height, the sunshine This time I'm finally free I'm Roland, Roland Yeah yeah yeah, I'm Roland, Roland, Roland Suitcase of diamonds, my assignment's an island I'll spend a lifetime away Will she sing my name as I step off the plane? Will she still feel the same? Now that I'm Roland, Roland Yeah yeah yeah, I'm Roland, Roland Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes!
7.
Green Light 01:06
Do you remember how I started out? Brokenhearted, down in the mouth Sleeping on an empty apartment floor My girlfriend moved out the week before Do you remember how we began? In your bed and you're my friend And I asked if it would be alright And you gave me the green light And the birds would sing And the sun would shine Outside your window And I can see the breeze The green leaves of the trees Oh so long ago But they say all good things must come to an end So I'm back down on the floor again Pining for another long-lost ghost Another old ghost on the coast
8.
Don't walk away from a good thing Is what we're told from the beginning Done it before and I'll do it again Don't expect that you would understand I've got a feeling like you feel right on I've got the feeling like that feeling is my fault And I'm not responsible Enough to be the one left in control Don't walk away from the pain That you feel locked up inside Can't be the one who's afraid That they might get left behind But it keeps me hanging on Just to see you hanging on Don't mean to sound like such a love-me-not But there are still so many question marks My love, my life, my cannonball pride My heart, my art, my inside I know you want me, mmmmm You know I want me too Now where's that leave you? You deserve better, yeah I know it's true Don't walk away when I'm talkin' to you I'll give you something to cry about
9.
You can see that I'm so scared of starting something new Oh, what to do? Oh no, it's love I concede why would someone who's been hurt before Go back for more? Oh no, it's love We spend a lifetime believing That we'll all find our special one But when I get that old familiar feeling All I want to do is run I can't believe just what is fakey and what is true I never knew Oh no, it's love I'd try to be understanding and just accept when I'm at fault But when I saw her dancing with her latest passing fancy I knew I wasn't crazy after all So you can see just why I'm terrified of something new Oh, what to do? Oh no, it's love
10.
Did you see some shooting star you wished on Did it make you hold your pillow tight? Could have been an airplane going down So don't tell yourself that I'm your type Stop calling me baby Stop calling me every night Stop calling me baby It'll never be right Said you wanna take a walk in my garden Said you wanna see my flowers bloom Oh darling, do you think me so green That I'd let my tulips fall prey to you? Stop calling me baby Stop calling me every night Stop calling me baby It'll never be right Oh, I know you're lying When I hear you cry You love me babe You don't understand I've got myself a man who loves me babe
11.
Sweet Petite 02:57
Money money makes a clever man a dummy It's so strange how nobody knows Where our money goes Money money makes a cloudy day sunny It's so strange how nobody knows What money composed I tried to walk out of a storm I need sunlight to keep me warm I couldn't find your loving touch Oh when I hurt so much
12.
You looked up, the sky was a silent blue You let it get a hold of you You're walking down darkened halls Looking behind shut doors You cried and begged from your lonely tomb A dream of a cold dead moon You burn up all the things you touch 'Cuz what you want, you want too much In one of these rooms Someone cries for you No one can touch you now Late at night You're convinced of what never was You're sure of what will never be You're filling up the dark with ghosts They hold you here and keep you close They don't care where you been They kindly let you in No one can touch you now
13.
Hey hey, it's the end of a new thing Pack up the tent and the mosquito bite ointment Hey hey, it's the end of a good thing Roll up the sleeping bag, it's the last time we'll use it Hey hey, it's the end of a good thing Maybe we'll sleep on it and decide it all tomorrow Some hearts are stolen While some others only borrowed I hope the bus back to Toronto comes real soon Do you want a lot of sweet-talk and romance? Hey hey, it's the end of a good thing Or go make-out in the next tent With your coke-head friends? Hey hey, it's the end of a good thing I think I'm having the worst camping trip ever I got dumped and a nasty summer sunburn Will I need another Ghostbuster now to get over you? Why do you need that love so bad? I just need someone to love Just go to sleep and you'll be with her again But what about when I wake up? Dumb-dumb you know that's why Man invented rewind, fool!
14.
Thanks for calling me baby Thanks for calling me out Thanks for calling me honey Thanks for calling me on it Thanks for calling no doubt about it
15.
Done before it started She needs a love that is true Can't get what she wanted But she'll settle for you Leave that woman alone, she'll ruin you boy Leave that woman alone, she'll ruin you boy Leave her to a man who can believe And understand all she needs And can be there when she needs him And not just whenever he pleases Who can please her with more than just a Visa card Oh my lord Let's take it back to the start and begin again Burn out 'fore a flame up Anyone else would agree Go ahead try and tame her I'm just glad it's not me Leave that woman alone, she'll ruin you boy Leave that woman alone, she'll ruin you boy Treat a man like a boy, use a heart like a toy 'Cause she's had hers destroyed too many times before Build a wall thick and tall, stacking words big and small Laying tricks for the bricks, how long 'til she falls? And she'll fall
16.
Prove It 01:03
17.
Don't you be so reckless In giving all your love To one who won't respect it And your heart is dragged along To a cold and heartless song It's a good thing Your love is a good thing Don't let him break your good heart Our hearts were meant to witness A love that lifts the darkness In time you'll come to learn That all the sad songs that you've heard Are still just empty words It's a good thing Your love is a good thing Please don't let him break your heart
18.
We've come so far taking our two hearts apart and starting new Figuring out what's allowed and what's against the rules Do you wanna tell me about the new friends you've met Tell me have you found a new boyfriend yet, because until then Can I keep calling you baby? Until we're together again Can I keep calling you, baby? While I still can I'm so proud to see our record cover on your resume And I admire the work you've done at Tokion While waiting for the plane We'll forget the stupid shit that we said And remember I'm still your biggest fan
19.
I tried so hard to run away To put the ghost back in its grave What's lying over the sea It's the lion in me Now that I know Oh yes, it's love Why go and play the poor victim That's just a game you'll never win Can't blame the distant past for all the things you've never done You gotta face up Yes, it's love I never thought you'd go so far How can I travel to where you are? Please come back to me and I'll make you see And then you'll know Oh yes, it's love Been looking back and looking down So much of that for so long now Things are looking up now that we've looking forward Yup, we know Oh yes, it's love
