Track Listing:

People living their lives for you on TV
They say they're better than you and you agree
He says "Hold my calls" from behind those cold brick walls
Says "Come here boy, there ain't nothing for free"
Another doctor's bill, another lawyer's bill
Another cute cheap thrill
You know you love him if you put in your will

Who will save your soul when it comes to the flowers now
Who will save your soul after all the lies that you told, boy
Who will save your soul if you won't save your own?

We try to hustle them, try to bustle them, try to cuss them
The cops want someone to bust down on Orleans Avenue
Another day, another dollar, another war, another tower
Went up where the homeless had their homes
So we pray to as many different God's as there are flowers
But we call religion our friend
We're so worried about saving our souls
Afraid that God will take His toll
That we forget to begin

Who will save your soul when it comes to the flower
Who will save your soul after all the lies that you told, boy
Who will save your soul if you won't save your own?

Some are walking, some are talking, some are stalking their kill
You got social security, but that don't pay your bills
There are addictions to feed and there are mouths to pay
So you bargain with the Devil, say you're o.k. for today,
You say that you love them, take their money and run
Say it's been swell, sweetheart, but it was just one of those things
Those flings, those strings you've got to cut,
So get out on the streets, girls, and bust you butts.

Who will save you soul when it comes to the flower
Who will save you soul after all the lies that you told, boy
Who will save your soul if you won't save you own?



I hear the clock, it's 6 a.m.
I feel so far away from where I've been
I got my eggs and my pancakes too
I got my maple syrup, everything but you.
I break the yolks, make a smiley face
I kinda like it in my brand new place
I wipe the spots off of the mirror
Don't leave the keys in the door
I never put wet towels on the floor anymore' cause

Dreams last for so long
Even after you're gone
I know you love me
And soon you will see
You were meant for me
And I was meant for you.

I called my momma, she was out for a walk
Consoled a cup of coffee but it didn't wanna talk
So I picked up the paper, it was more bad news
More hearts being broken or people being used
Put on my coat in the pouring rain
I saw a movie it just wasn't the same
'Cause it was happy and I was sad
It made me miss you oh so bad 'cause

Dreams last for so long
Even after you're gone
I know you love me
And soon you will see
You were meant for me
And I was meant for you.

I go about my business, I'm doin fine
Besides what would I say if I had you on the line
Same old story, not much to say
Hearts are broken everyday.

I brush my teeth and put the cap back on
I know you hate it when I leave the light on
I pick a book up and turn the sheets down.
Take a deep breath and a good look around

Put on my pjs and hop into bed
I'm half alive but I feel mostly dead
I try and tell myself it'll be all right
I just shouldn't think anymore tonight 'cause

Dreams last for so long
Even after you're gone
I know you love me
And soon I know you will see
You were meant for me
And I was meant for you

Yeah.... You were meant for me and I was meant for you.




You took your coat off and stood in the rain,
You're always crazy like that and
I watched from my window,
Always felt I was outside looking in on you.

You were always the mysterious one
With dark eyes and careless hair,
You were fashionably sensitive,
But too cool to care
You stood in my doorway,
With nothing to say
Besides some comment on the weather

Well in case you failed to notice,
In case you failed to see,
This is my heart bleeding before you,
This is me down on my knees

These foolish games are tearing me apart,
And your thoughtless words are breaking my heart.
You're breaking my heart.

You were always brilliant in the morning
Smoking your cigarettes
And talking over coffee
Your philosophies on art
Baroque moved you,
You loved Mozart
And you'd speak of your loved ones
As I clumsily strummed my guitar.

Well, excuse me
Guess I've mistaken you for somebody else
Somebody who gave a damn,
Somebody more like myself

These foolish games are tearing me apart,
And your thoughtless words are breaking my heart.
You're breaking my heart.

You took your coat off
And stood in the rain
You're always crazy like that.




If I could tell the world just one thing
It would be that we're all OK
And not to worry 'cause worry is wasteful
And useless in times like these

I won't be made useless
I won't be idle with despair
I will gather myself around my faith
For light does the darkness most fear

My hands are small, I know
But they're not yours, they are my own
But they're not yours, they are my own
And I am never broken

Poverty stole your golden shoes
It didn't steal your laughter
And heartache came to visit me
But I knew it wasn't ever after

We'll fight, not out of spite
For someone must stand up for what's right
'Cause where there's a man who has no voice
There ours shall go singing

My hands are small I know
But they're not yours, they are my own
But they're not yours, they are my own
I am never broken

In the end only kindness matters
In the end only kindness matters
I will get down on my knees, and I will pray
I will get down on my knees, and I will pray
I will get down on my knees, and I will pray

My hands are small I know
But they're not yours, they are my own
But they're not yours, they are my own
And I am never broken

My hands are small I know
But they're not yours, they are my own
But they're not yours, they are my own
And I am never broken
We are never broken

We are God's eyes
God's hands
God's mind
We are God's eyes
God's hands
God's heart
We are God's eyes
God's hands
God's eyes
We are God's hands
We are God's hands




Sun sets across the ocean
I'm a thousand miles from anywhere
My pocketbook and my heart both just got stolen
And the sun acts like she don't even care
The wind blows cold when you reach the top
It feels like someone's face
Is stuck to the bottom of my shore
I got a plastic Jesus
A cordless telephone for every corner of my room
Got everybody but you telling me what to do

But I've been down so long
Ooh, it can't be longer still
I've been down so long
That the end must be drawing near

I look to everybody but me to answer my prayers
'Til I saw an angel in a bathroom
Who said she saw no one worth saving anywhere
And a blind man on the corner said, it's simple
Like flipping a coin
Don't mater what side it lands on
If it's someone else's dime

But I've been down so long
Ooh, it can't be longer still
We've been down so long
That the end must be drawing near

I take a trip
I catch a train
I catch a plane
I got a ticket in my hand
And then a man takes my money
And like cattle we all stand

But we've been down so long
Ooh, it can't be longer still
We've been down so long
The end must be . . .
I know the end must be. . .
Oh, I know the end must be drawing near
Oh the end. . .
Oh the end. . .
Oh the end. . .




Venus de Milo
In her half-baked shell
Understood the nature of love very well
She said, "A good love is delicious,
You can't get enough too soon.
It makes you so crazy
You want to swallow the moon."

Oh, oh Jupiter
Oh, oh be still my little heart
Oh, oh love is a flame
Neither timid nor tame

Take these stars from my crown
Let the years fall down
Lay me out in firelight
Let my skin feel the night
Fasten me to your side
Say it will be soon
You make me so crazy, baby
Could swallow the moon

My hands are two travelers
They've crossed oceans and lands
Yet they are too small on the continent of your skin
Wandering, wandering I could spend my life
Traveling the length of your body each night

Oh, oh Jupiter
Oh, oh be still my little heart
Oh, oh love is a flame
Neither timid nor tame

Take these stars
Lay me out in firelight
Let my skin feel the night
Fasten me to your side
And say it will be soon
You make me so crazy, baby
Could swallow the moon
Swallow the moon
Swallow the moon
Swallow the moon




Cutting through the darkest night are my two headlights
Trying to keep it clear
But I'm losing it here
To the twilight
There's a dead end to my left
There's a burning bush to my right
You aren't in sight
You aren't in sight

Do you want me
Like I want you?

Or am I standing still
Beneath the darkened sky
Or am I standing still
With the scenery flying by
Or am I standing still
Out of the corner of my eye
Was that you
Passing me by

Mother's on the stoop
Boys in souped up coupes
On this hot summer night
Between fight and flight
Is the blind man's sight
And a choice that's right
I roll the window down
Feel like I, I'm gonna drown
In this strange town
Feel broken down
I feel broken down

Do you need me
Like I need you?

Or am I standing still
Beneath the darkened sky
Or am I standing still
With the scenery flying by
Or am I standing still
Out of the corner of my eye
Was that you
Passing my by

A sweet sorrow is the call tomorrow
A sweet sorrow is the call tomorrow

Do you love me
Like I love you?

Or am I standing still
Beneath the darkened sky
Or am I standing still
With the scenery flying by
Or am I standing still
Out of the corner of my eye
Or was that you
Passing me by?

Are you passing me by?
Passing me by
Do you want me?
Passing me by

Do you need me
Like I need you too
And do you want me
Like I want you?
Passing me by

Are you passing me by
Or am I standing still?




I will meet you in some place
Where the light lends itself to soft repose
I will let you undress me, but I warn you
I have thorns like any rose

And you could hurt me
With your bare hands
You could hurt me
Using the sharp end of what you say
But I'm lost to you now
And there's no amount of reason
To save me

So break me, take me
Just let me feel your arms again
Break me, take me
Just let me
Feel your love again

Feels like being underwater
Now that I've let go
And lost control
Water kisses fill my mouth
Water fills my soul

So break me, take me
Just let me feel your arms again
Break me,
I'll let you make me
Just let me
Feel your love again

Kiss me once
Well, maybe twice
Oh, it never felt so nice

So break me, take me
Just let me feel your love again
Break me
I'll let you make me
Just let me feel your arms again
Just let me feel your love again




I'm just a simple girl
In a high tech digital world
I really try to understand
All the powers that rule this land
They say Miss J's big butt is boss
Kate Moss can't find a job
In a world of post modern fad
What was good now is bad

It's not hard to understand
Just follow this simple plan

Follow your heart
Your intuition
It will lead you in the right direction
Let go of your mind
Your Intuition
It's easy to find
Just follow your heart baby

You look at me
But you're not quite sure
Am I it or could you get more?
You learn cool from magazines
You learn love from Charlie Sheen

If you want me let me know
I promise I won't say no

Follow your heart
Your intuition
It will lead you in the right direction
Let go of your mind
Your Intuition
It's easy to find
Just follow your heart baby

You got something that you want me to sell
Sell your sin. Just cash in.
You got something that you want me to tell
You'll love me. Wait and see.

If you want me
Don't play games
I promise it won't be in vain
Uh-uh-uh

Follow your heart
Your intuition
It will lead you in the right direction
Let go of your mind
Your Intuition
It's easy to find
Just follow your heart baby




I say to myself
Self, why are you awake again?
It's one a.m.
Standing with the fridge door wide open, staring
Such a sight, florescent light
The stars are bright
Might make a wish, if I believed in that shit
As it is, I might watch TV
Cause it's nice to see people more messed up than me
I say to myself, as I smile at the wall,
"Just let myself fall"

It's gonna be all right, no matter what they say
It's gonna be a good day, just wait and see
It's gonna be okay, cause I'm okay with me
It's gonna be, it's gonna be, it's gotta be

I shiver, shut the door
Can't think standing here no more
I'm alone, my mine's racing, heart breaking
Can you be everything I need you to be?
Can you protect me like a daughter?
Can you love me like a father?
Can you drink me like water?
Say I'm like the desert, just way hotter.

The point of it all
Is that if I should fall
Still you're name I'll call

It's gonna be all right, no matter what they say
It's gonna be a good day, just wait and see
It's gonna be okay, cause I'm okay with me
It's gonna be, it's gonna be

As long as we laugh out loud
Laugh like we're mad
Cause this crazy, mixed up beauty is all that we have
Because what's love but an itch we can't scratch
A joke we can't catch
God, but still we laugh

I go back upstairs, turn off the TV
You say "I'll be okay baby,
Just wait and see."

It's gonna be alright, it's gonna be okay
It's gonna be alright, just wait and see.
It's gonna be alright, no matter what they say
Gonna be a good day, just wait, just gonna be
Gonna be okay, cause I'm okay with me
It's gonna be, it's gonna be, it's gonna be okay




I guess you could say I'm one of those girls
That's always been with one of those guys
You know the type
Like right now, he sleeps while I write

But it's better than crying
I'm worn out from trying
From loving a man who always makes it clear
I'm not welcome here
Just when he's hungry or frisky
Or needs something cleaned
You know what I mean
But not tonight
'Cause come the morning light, oh

I'm gonna love myself more than anyone else
Believe in me, even if someone can't see
The stronger woman in me
I'm going to be my own best friend
Stick with me till the end
Won't lose myself again, never, no,
'Cause there's a stronger woman,
A stronger woman in me

Light bulbs buzz, I get up
And head to my drawer
I wish there was more I could say
Another fairytale fades to gray
I've lived on hope like a child
Walking that mile, faking that smile
All the while wishing my heart had wings

Well from now on I'm going to be
The kind of woman I'd want my daughter to be, oh

I'm gonna love myself more than anyone else
Believe in me, even if someone can't see
A stronger woman in me
I'm gonna be my own best friend
Stick with me till the end
I won't lose myself again, never, no
'Cause there's a stronger woman,
A stronger woman

This is me, packing up my bags
And this is me, headed for the door
And this is me, the best you ever had

I'm going to love myself more than anyone else
Believe in me even if someone can't see
The stronger woman in me
I'm going to be my own best friend
Stick with me till the end
Won't lose myself again, no, no
'Cause there's a stronger woman
A stronger woman
There's a stronger woman,
A stronger woman in me,
Yeah...




When all the world is a hopeless jumble
And the raindrops tumble all around
Heaven opens a magic lane
When all the clouds darken up the skyway
There's a rainbow highway to be found
Leading from your windowpane
To a place behind the sun
Just a step beyond the rain

Somewhere over the rainbow
Way up high
There`s a land that I heard of
Once in a lullabye
And somewhere over the rainbow
Skies are blue
And the dreams that you dare to dream
Really do come true

Some day I’ll wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far behind me
And troubles melt like lemon drops
Away above the chimney tops
That's where you'll find me

Somewhere, over the rainbow
Bluebirds fly
If birds can fly over the rainbow
Why, then oh why, can't I?

Someday I’ll wake and rub my eyes
And in that land beyond the skies
You’ll find me
I’ll be a laughing daffodil
And leave the silly cares that fill my mind behind me

Somewhere, over the rainbow, bluebirds fly
If birds can fly over the rainbow
Why, then oh why can't I?

If happy little bluebirds fly
Beyond the rainbow
Why, oh why can't I?




If you love somebody
You better let it out
Don't hold back
While you're trying to figure it out
Don't be timid
Don't be afraid to hurt
Run toward the flame
Run toward the fire
Hold on for all you're worth

'Cause the only real pain
A heart can ever know
Is the sorrow of regret
When you don't let your feelings show

So did you say it, did you mean it
Did you lay in on the line
Did you make it count
Did you look 'em in the eye and did they feel it
Did you say it in time, did you say it out loud?
‘Cause if you did, hun
Then you lived some
That feeling inside, thats called satisfied

Busy people walking by
Can't help but worry some
With so many things to do
So little love gets done
Empty hearts everywhere
Drowning but dying of thirst
If you want love, It's not that tough
Start by giving it first

It's so easy to give
Baby can't you see
Just close your eyes open your heart
And do what comes naturally

So did you say it, did you mean it
Did you lay in on the line
Did you make it count
Did you look 'em in the eye and did they feel it
Did you say it in time, did you say it out loud?
‘Cause if you did, hun
Then you lived some
That feeling inside, thats called satisfied

Horses are built to run
The sun is meant to shine above
Flowers are made to bloom
And then there's us
We were born to love
We were born to love

So did you say it, did you mean it
Did you lay in on the line
Did you make it count
Did you look 'em in the eye and did they feel it
Did you say it in time, did you say it out loud?
‘Cause if you did, hun
Then you lived some
That feeling inside, thats called satisfied

You're the ship
I'm the wreck
You're the bomb
I'm the tick
You're the pause
Before the fall
I'm the crash
That follows it all

We are one
We are whole
We are one whole dying soul
We're the crash, the burn
The dream that turns
From ecstasy to aching
We are the sound of two hearts breaking

You're the blink
I'm the eye
You're the shiver
I'm the knife
You're the crutch
I'm the break
You're the emptiness I make

We are one
We are whole
We are one whole dying soul
We're the crash, the burn
The dream that turns
From ecstasy to aching
We are the sound of two hearts breaking

I'm dry heaving tears from crying all these years
And I know this is your nightmare come true
I never wanted this for you, but...

I'm the teeth
You're the heart
Together
We're the start
Of the inhale
And a scream
You're the not waking
I'm the not dreaming

We are one
We are whole
We are one whole dying soul
We're the crash, the burn
The dream that turns
From ecstasy to aching
We are the sound of two hearts breaking
