Out of my mind He speaks in tongues In a burst of eloquence He's all keyed up I'm all undone Yeah, it makes no sense. He's an exclamation A shot in the dark A dollop of pure confection He says what he means And he means what he says He's a mythical creature So magnificent He's an exclamation! He goes all out I can't keep up And with a wave of his hand He stirs the air I hold my breath More than I can stand He's an exclamation A walk in the park A swinging sound sensation He says what he means And he means what he says He's a mythical creature So magnificent He's an exclamation! Like a painting framed with desire He inspires. Fill my thoughts with color Illuminate my eyes And never question why. He's self assured I'm full of doubt Need a moment to clear my head Make no mistake What I have found For crying out loud! (chorus and out)

It's Not Me 04:04
My skin can’t feel the cold beneath all the scars. And I still can’t believe I am here where you are. Yeah, I knew on this rooftop it would be hard. But now I see clearly here in the dark. (CHORUS) No, it’s not me That you’re needing to be with. No, it’s not me That you’re needing at all. No, it’s not me That you want to spend time with. No, it’s not me That you’re wanting at all. But it’s okay. As the rain starts to fall a sigh escapes from your lips You brush back you hair and say softly, time to go in. I can hear in your voice there’s another you’d rather be with I can see in your eyes there’s another… (CHORUS)

In the morning when we wake up We'll feel the sun So we know we'll be okay. We'll march along the city sidewalks As we sing a song 
In our very own parade, it's a brilliant day.
 But then we'll take a break And talk about the weather Maybe even share a story or two On a crowded street We'll say that things are better As we gaze out on the avenue.
 Maybe we could take a walk up The streets that know you 
Where they're always shouting your name Feel the energy of this town It never gives up and It never will give in, so let's step in
 Where we could get a drink And talk about the weather Maybe even share a moment or two In a smoky bar We'll feel that things are better As we gaze out on the avenue
 In the evening as we walk back We'll watch the buildings 
As they run and chase the stars We'll see the lights go out on Broadway But the light inside you will most Surely guide our way, but I know it's late
 As we say goodbye We'll talk about the weather Maybe even share a kiss or two As the sky turns pink We'll know that things are better As we gaze out on the avenue.

Sitting on a porch and drinking wine You lost your train of thought when I found mine I know it’s hard to try and find your way When all you see are dullard shades of grey So I just have to ask you now Get the truth somehow I’m losing anyhow. (CHORUS) You don’t have the time you say Under your breath I’ll just sit tight and wait, I guess You don’t have the time You say. (INSTRUMENTAL BRIDGE) I can’t believe its all come down to this When all you want to do is follow your bliss Why do you close all doors that lead to your soul I wish I knew but only you can know So I just have to ask you now Tell the truth right now I’m losing anyhow. (CHORUS)

I cannot lie I was born before you were. I’m up at night Entertaining pleasant thoughts. I think you’re fine It’s a blissful ignorance. You’re pure sunshine A warm fire when it rains. (Chorus) Ooh, living in a fool’s paradise Ooh, living in a fool’s paradise I’ve seen the light And it shines in your eyes. And I don’t know why You’re just not giving in. You’re a delight You’re icing on my cake. It’s lilac time My head is in the clouds. Ooh, living in a fool’s paradise Ooh, living in a fool’s paradise Should I tell you what I’m thinking? What goes on in my mind. Should I tell you what I’m feeling inside? When you’re talking and you’re breathing, Angels fly out of your mouth Well, it’s clear see, When you’re near me, I’m tongue-tied. If you don’t mind I’ll give you daisies from my yard. Then I’ll say goodnight And dream of long good-byes. Ooh, living in a fool’s paradise Ooh, living in a fool’s paradise Ooh, living in a fool’s paradise

Firefly 03:50
Quiet thoughts You are a tender sight I try and catch your light But you slip right through my hands, again. A sun soaked gaze Takes in a field of green The brilliance that I see Is out of my control, I know. Firefly, You radiate the night Firefly, You burn up have the sky Firefly, You're glowing out of reach Firefly, Can you stand still for me? Firefly. Cast a spell My deep, blue butterfly Your mouth, your touch, your eyes Heat up my evening skin, and then Firefly, You radiate the night Firefly, You burn up have the sky Firefly, You're glowing out of reach Firefly, Can you stand still for me? Firefly. Ahhh... Ahhh... Ahhh... Hearts wander Where loyal spirits roam A kiss seals all that's known Your wings spark with desire But I'm tired. Firefly, You radiate the night Firefly, You burn up have the sky Firefly, You're glowing out of reach Firefly, Can you stand still for me? Firefly.

Odds and ends A living breathing cast off. This rubbish heap It looks to be exhausted. I believe, you're neither here nor there You believe, that I am somewhere else. It's easy to see You're no more sorry than me Look around now you're free And when your moment's over You will be feeling no more Than me. That is that This race has finally run it's course We both win No bitter end. Up in the smoke There's a shadow of a flame The afterglow Still clings to our remains. We believe, we're neither here nor there We believe, that we are somewhere else. It's easy to see You're no more sorry than me Look around now you're free And when your moment's over You will be feeling no more Than me.

"She's California meets Liverpool, by way of New York - melodic vocals over chiming guitars - it's earnest, sweet and rocking. With a touch of whimsy and a whole lot of heart!" - P. Hux (Parthenon Huxley)
