Track Name: Ordinary People
Ooo, Ordinary People

Verse:
Who are these nameless faceless fiends
Cool and silent walking up and down the street
Your friends, your loves , your enemies
You’ll never know it until the day you meet
Everything can seem just peachy
And every moment can feel sublime
Until the day they screw you over
They end up crossing that finely drawn line

Chorus:
Ordinary people hurt each other everyday (Ooo, Ordinary People)
Ordinary people hurt each other everyday (Ooo, Ordinary People)

Verse:
It’ll hit you like nothing you ever knew
When those you love do and say cruel things to you
It’ll have you writhing singing sad, sad songs
When without warning they turn and do you wrong
And you’d think you’d see it coming
Cause in the past it sent you running
Often times deception wears a pretty mask
Before you know it she’s gone and kicked your ass

Chorus:
Ordinary people hurt each other everyday (Ooo, Ordinary People)
Ordinary people hurt each other everyday (Ooo, Ordinary People)

Bridge:
And when your high is coming down
Don’t know who’s gonna be around
Guess you’ll be lost and never found
You’re gonna feel it baby
When you hit the ground

Chorus:
Ordinary people hurt each other everyday (Ooo, Ordinary People)
Ordinary people hurt each other everyday (Ooo, Ordinary People)
Track Name: Music II
Verse:
It’s about how it makes me feel
It’s about everything that’s real
It’s about my pride my strength my pain
It’s about everything I am

Refrain:
That’s my music

Verse:
It’s about the journey that has many destinations
And finding the beauty in all of my creations
It’s about forgiving the one even though he hurt me so
Any finding salvation in the art of letting go

Refrain:
That’s my music

Bridge:
It’s about the freedom of letting go
Of everything I thought I know
TO face the work with a new mind
Being open to not knowing what I’m gonna find
Maybe a new dawn, maybe a new world
It’s whatever babe cause I’m a new girl
Pushing through doing what I wanna do
With open eyes you know I’ll be all right

Refrain:
That’s my music

(Ad Lib Out)
Track Name: Easy For You
Verse:
I’m still here trying to pull myself from the wreckage
I’m doing my best to find my way back to the land of the living
You’re the only one able to walk away from the damage you’ve done
Must be nice I’m just hoping that someday I can do the same

Chorus:
Everything must be so easy for you
To just way away
And it’s easy for you
To just let it go
And it’s easy for you
To go from everything to nothing
It’s easy for you

Verse:
It’s gonna take a minute or maybe a lifetime
For me to catch my breath
Just to put it all together now and trying to figure out
Exactly what’s supposed to come after this
With everything I should have said spinning around inside my head
I feel turned inside out, forgot how hard it is to rise up from a breakdown

Chorus:
Everything must be so easy for you
To just walk away
And it’s easy for you
To just let it go
And it’s easy for you
To go from everything to nothing
It’s easy for you

Bridge:
I tried to reason with you
I tried to make it right
And I know that I was never perfect
But you can’t say I never tried
I know I never gave you limits
I never had control
I feel like I never knew you
Feel like I’ve sold my soul

(Ad Lib Out)
Track Name: Thank You For Loving Me
Verse:
I am a sinner
I think things I shouldn’t
Don’t like to make promises
Cause it’s work to keep them
It makes me wonder how we lasted so long
I have decided you must be really strong

Refrain:
Thank you for loving me
Thank you for loving me
Thank you for loving me
Thank you for loving me

Verse:
I’ve asked forgiveness
when I said things I shouldn’t
I don’t deserve you, but I’ll work to keep you
It makes me wonder how we lasted so long
I have decided we must be really strong

Refrain:
Thank you for loving me
Thank you for loving me
Thank you for loving me
Thank you for loving me

Bridge:
It’s the way you make a space for me
The way you slow the world for me
The glow you leave on everything
The change you’ve made in my life

Refrain:
Thank you for loving me
Thank you for loving me
Thank you for loving me
Thank you for loving me

I am a sinner
I've asked forgiveness
I am a sinner
I've asked forgiveness
Track Name: Make Me Forget
Verse:
It pounds inside my head, stretched across the bed
Keeps me wide awake, far too much to take
Can’t help but let it in, allow it to begin
As for what I used to know, I’m still trying to let it go
So I think of you and what you do just to hold me together
Nobody knows me better baby
Need you hands and your sound just to calm me down
When the world is too loud

Chorus:
Won’t you do that thing baby to make me forget
Break it down with just a little piece of heaven
Leave nothing here to regret
Ain’t it true at the end of the day we’re all just trying to feel good
So won’t you just do that thing honey like I want you to

Verse:
Spending hour after hour trying to work my shit out
Tossing and turning couldn’t force the change about
My search began under an ocean of covers
Its pull is strong but not enough to drag me under
When I think of you and what you do just to hold me together
Nobody knows me better baby
Need you hands and your sound just to calm me down
When the world is too loud

Chorus:
Won’t you do that thing baby to make me forget
Break it down with just a little piece of heaven
Leave nothing here to regret
Ain’t it true at the end of the day we’re all just trying to feel good
So won’t you just do that thing honey like I want you to

Guitar Solo

Chorus:
Won’t you do that thing baby to make me forget
Break it down with just a little piece of heaven
Leave nothing here to regret
Ain’t it true at the end of the day we’re all just trying to feel good
So won’t you just do that thing honey like I want you to
Track Name: A Little Too Much
VERSE:
Harsh words have been spoken
Hearts have been broken
Promises all cast aside
Still I can’t leave you
My heart can’t let go of the dream
Cause it keeps me alive

CHORUS:
Maybe I need you a little too much
Cause when I think of you
I long for your touch
I need you a little too much
When I lay down to sleep I just dream of your love

VERSE:
The ground has been shaky
Don’t know if we’ll make it
But my heart would like to believe
That we are both destined to be here together
To live and accomplish great things

CHORUS:
Maybe I need you a little too much
Cause when I think of you
I long for your touch
I need you a little too much
When I lay down to sleep I just dream of your love

BRIDGE:
Baby I’m so in need
In my dreams you’re what I see
In my heart you’re what I feel
Darling, stay here with me

CHORUS:
Maybe I need you a little too much
Cause when I think of you
I long for your touch
I need you a little too much
When I lay down to sleep I just dream of your love
Track Name: All Right
Verse 1:
I can feel my blood in motion
Coursing through me, ship through ocean
Senses that might overtake me
Toss me over please don’t break me
Can’t reveal how much I love you
It might scare or even bug you
Please forgive my trepidation
I’m strange to this situation

Chorus:
I hear it’s called love
I hear it’s called happiness
I hear it’s called life
I’m finally living
And I think I’m gonna be alright

Verse:
Finally feel my life in motion
Drank deep of your magic potion
Punch drunk, deep sunk let it drown me
Full immersion since you’ve found me

Chorus:
I hear it’s called love
I hear it’s called happiness
I hear it’s called life
I’m finally living it
And I think I’m gonna be alright

Bridge:
If our hearts stay open
Alright, if our truths remain spoken
Alright, if promises remain unbroken
We can try

(Vocal Ad lib)

Chorus:
I hear it’s called love
I hear it’s called happiness
I hear it’s called life
I’m finally living it
And I think I’m gonna be alright
You and I will be alright
You and I will be just fine
Track Name: Not Exactly Perfect
Verse:
I don’t apologize for being who I am
But I’ll always try to do right by you
I’ll do the very best I can
And I won’t lie to you
Sometimes to myself I sit and say
I’m falling short of being the living proof
Of who I say I am

Chorus:
Not exactly perfect but I’ve given up that goal
It’s not exactly worth it when it’s wearing down your soul
I believe that I deserve to find the parts that make me whole
It’s on this journey I have learned it’s not about the place you’ve been
It’s where you go

Verse:
I will admit that I’ve never given too much
Was too afraid that I’d fall short
And knowing they would leave when the truth was revealed
I was the one holding the door
But I know that you’re sincere my love
And you’re not here to judge
I only want to be everything in this life
That is deserving of your love

Chorus:
Not exactly perfect but I’ve given up that goal
It’s not exactly worth it when it’s wearing down your soul
I believe that I deserve to find the parts that make me whole
It’s on this journey I have learned it’s not about the place you’ve been
It’s where you go

Vocal Ad Lib

Verse:
Not exactly perfect but I’ve given up that goal
It’s not exactly worth it when it’s wearing down your soul
I believe that I deserve to find the parts that make me whole
It’s on this journey I have learned it’s not about the place you’ve been
It’s where you go

Outro:
It’s where you go
It’s where you go and what you know
And who do you see when you look in the mirror
Who do you see when you look in the mirror
When you look in the mirror
When you look in the mirror
Track Name: If You Ever Loved Me
Verse:
I’m not gonna blame this on myself
And I don’t feel the need to make this thing your fault
We both know no matter what I say no matter what I do
You are never going to try to play your part

Chorus:
If you ever loved me
You never told
If you had the answers
You never let me know
If you were angry
You never let it show
When I said I was leaving
You just let me go

Verse:
I’m so close to giving up the dream
That you and I will become what I believe we should be
I can’t look at you now cause it hurts too much
To see that two hearts made of each other
Will never truly touch

Chorus:
If you ever loved me
You never told
If you had the answers
You never let me know
If you were angry
You never let it show
When I said I was leaving
You just let me go

Bridge:
I think we all want to be loved
We all want to be appreciated
We all want to know that somebody understands
I’ve been searching for some proof that you feel that way I do
I know you’re set in your ways
And you don’t believe in change
But maybe I do

Chorus:
If you ever loved me
You never told
If you had the answers
You never let me know
If you were angry
You never let it show
When I said I was leaving
You just let me go
Track Name: Never Explain
Verse:
Hell yes I’m bitter
I think I did the best I could
I was never perfect but this I did not deserve
Why would you call me out just to stand me up?
When all I ever wanted baby was to fill your cup

Chorus:
Dreams and desires sometimes cloud the way
We say and do things we don’t mean because we’re not thinking straight
We become frantic when the magic starts to fade
Who knows why it happens
It’s just something we might never explain

Verse:
So tell me this: What was your motivation?
Are you just innocently thoughtless or did you lie to me for your own stimulation
Whatever it is I have no energy left for you
I wanted badly to make this work but it’s clear now I can’t trust you

Chorus:
Dreams and desires sometimes cloud the way
We say and do things we don’t mean because we’re not thinking straight
We become frantic when the magic starts to fade
Who knows why it happens
It’s just something we might never explain

Bridge:
Well I thought your love was mine
Seems you’ve been spreading it round
So I’m putting pen to paper to break this all down
Inside your heart evil prevails
Every word and every deed is completely derailed
You lied baby yes you led me on
But I was in too deep to see it I was too far gone
Save your tricks, don’t say a word sill rabbit
Now as far as I’m concerned you’re a broken bad habit

Chorus:
Dreams and desires sometimes cloud the way
We say and do things we don’t mean because we’re not thinking straight
We become frantic when the magic starts to fade
Who knows why it happens
It’s just something we might never explain
