Track Name: Yesterday's Passed Away
It almost feels like plastic flowers
We talk for hours and I shower in the rain
It almost seems like early morning
Cards are boring and church it is the same

All things I say usually make you laugh
And most things I do don't make sense
It’s just like the way that you rule the world to me

And it's all the same the way you love me
The way you keep me the world was once new
So don't tell me that I can't love too it’s not for you to say
yesterday has passed away

It's been said that lates better than never
We are together there ain't nothing feel the same
It’s hard to tell when the sky is a different colour
I love my mother and my father feels the same

All things you say usually make me laugh
And nothin you do don't make sense
It’s just like the way that you make it hard to sleep

And it's all the same the way you love me
The way you keep me the world was once new
So don't tell me that I can't love too it’s not for you to say
yesterday has passed away
Track Name: Jessica's Flowers
Too many times I had to leave
Before Jessica came come
My little girl and blue rubber trees
Da da da da da da da da da

So don’t you forget that I love you
And that I am your dad
You may perceive fantastically that’ll be okay until I say
There ain’t no more time to be sad

Jessica’s flowers taller than towers
They’re out in the field
Touch them they’re real
Jessica won’t mind at all

I raised a good girl and she raised a good dad
Just her and me and those blue rubber trees
And a whole lotta space to grow

Jessica’s flowers taller than towers
They’re out in the field
Touch them they’re real
Jessica won’t mind at all
(repeat)

They’re out in the field touch them they’re real
Jessica won’t mind at all
Jessica won’t mind cause she’s in my mind
She is not even real at all
Track Name: 50's Rock Ballad
You wake up in the morning with a feeling that things are over
And then you give your head a shake and tell yourself everything is ok
It's like you always say everything will eventually work out
Or at least it seems like it's always been that way

Now mama done told you that's how things would work out
So I don't know why you’re acting so surprised
That's how he's always got anyone that he's had
By covering up I love you with his lies.

Banter

I never knew what love was
Until I found you baby I was blind
Now that I know what love does
It makes me feel like I could die

But it's not like you didn't know that this was coming
I mean you must have seen it in his eyes last night
The way he talked and the way that he acted
Must have told you something wasn't right

Must have told you something wasn't right (x4)
Track Name: It Doesn't Matter
And if I told you that you could make me talk to let you know
That you oh anywhere for you I'd go yes I would yeah

Summer in December is nice but it makes no sense
And if you wanted me in September it could cost you 60 cents
That’s for me it's all I need you see it’s all I need

My dad likes Steve Earle he thinks that he rules the world
But I don't no I don’t yeah
And me I like the Big O his songs are sad and kind of slow
Ahh but he don't think so no no

And that doesn't mean that he don't love me
That doesn't mean that I don't love him cause I do

The Beatles never really died but John Lennon did
And sometimes I wanna cry because I ain't a kid
You see yeah what do you think about me yeah

It doesn't matter it doesn’t matter no no
It doesn't matter it doesn’t matter no no
It doesn't matter it doesn't matter at all to me
Track Name: Suppose
Suppose my love would never die again
Suppose the birds would never fly again
Suppose my eyes would never cry again
Suppose you were in love with me

Suppose that you weren't in love with him
Oh suppose that you love me again
Suppose that I could make you see and then
You'd be in love with me

But I can't help it that I feel the way I do
No I cannot help it oh I feel in love with you
No I didn't mean to didn't want to break you heart
But I can't help it oh it's tearing me apart

Suppose that I could turn back time
Is there a chance that you could be mine?
Suppose our love would live and be divine
I suppose but I can't

Suppose I knew the answer to my words
Suppose you knew they’re mine and then you heard
Suppose our love could fly just like a bird
Suppose I wasn't dream dreaming

And I can't help it but I feel the way I do
No I can't help it oh I feel in love with you
No I didn't mean no I didn't want to break you heart
But I can't help it it's tearing me apart

And I can't help it cause I feel the way I do
And I cannot help it no I feel in love with you
No I didn't mean to I didn't want to break you heart
But I cannot help it it's tearing me apart yeah
Track Name: Daniel
Sometimes when I'm all alone
Just sitting around alone
I think of us
I think of you and me

Sometimes when you’re not in the place
Where we were last night face to face
I think of us
Oh I think of you and me

Yeah but each time I wake up and you’re not around
I start feeling bad and my head hangs down
Just then I realize you’re not gone to stay
You’ll be back before I’ve got much else to say

I can't understand what makes us so good
It’s something that to me that never be understood
But ain't it grand no need to understand
Just take my hand

Da, da, da, da, da, da Daniel
Da, da, da, da, da, da Daniel
Da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da

Oh but each time I wake up and you’re not around
I start feeling bad and my head hangs down
Just then I realize you’re not gone to stay
You’ll be back before I’ve got much else to say

I can't understand what makes us so good
It’s something that to me that never be understood
But ain't it grand no need to understand
Just take my hand

It doesn't matter what the others say
I love you more with each passing day
And ain't it grand no need to understand
Just take my hand

Seems quite unusual that you'd take the time
To tell me that you disapprove
What made you think that I'd give a damn
I do what I want cause that's who I am

Da, da, da, da, da, da Daniel
Da, da, da, da, da, da Daniel
Da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da
(Repeat)
Track Name: The Water's Running Fast
The waters running fast
But it's still too cold to get in
I've had you in the past
I can't wait to get to heaven

Now I didn't mean to hurt you I didn't mean to make you cry
I didn't want you to lose the love that you had for me inside
But now it's gone and it seems you won't be coming back at all not at all no no
So I'll believe in believing though sometimes I don't believe I believe at all

Blues my favorite color
Paula’s my best friend
Up is where the arrow points
Cause down is where we've already been

I was always worried of things that would never change
Until you start to believe in yourself everything is gonna stay the same
But don't you worry cause you know someone out there will believe in you
So when your soul is feeling empty just trust your faith to pull you through

Talk so I can hear you
Look so you will see
The music’s getting louder now
Put both your arms around me around me around me
Track Name: Jennie
Jennie works at the all night grocery store
She wakes up everyday wanting more
No she ain't poor
But she feels empty

And her girlfriend Jill doesn't have a job
And Jennie’s mom says Jill ain’t no good
Look in her eyes
They are empty

Ah but Jennie has a beautiful voice
Yeah one day she will be at the top of the charts yeah
She’ll do everything that needs to be done
To be herself to be number one no no no

Jennie became a rock star
And she moved into a mansion on the hill
Jennie was paid like a rock star
She was paid to be Jennie what a thrill

But her mama always told her that she was something special
Yeah her mama always told her that she could
Yeah her mama always told here that she was something special
Yeah her mama always told her that she could

But when I wake up will you be my side
Will you run to the sun where no shadows can hide
And when I wake up will you be in my arms yeah
Will you tell me you feel like like it’s where you belong

With me with me just like you belong with me
Lord with me like you belong with me alright

Today they closed that grocery store
Jennie still writes songs sings and performs
To sold out crowds
Just like she new she always could
Track Name: Forever In My Heart
Forever in my heart
You’ll always stay
Thinking of you always
In the hours of every day

Even though you do not understand
Just how much I really do
Baby don't you know
That I love you yes I do

Whenever trouble is near
Near your side
There ain't no need to hide your face
No there ain't no need to hide no

Cause you can always come to me
Cause in my heart is where you'll be
With me day and night
So come on baby we can make this right

And I don't think you know
That I love you so
Thinking in the days of the past
How much longer can I last

The first time I laid my eyes on you
It was you for me and me for you
So come on baby won't you understand
I live my life just to hold your hand

You’re in my heart it’s where you’ll be
Please stay forever in my heart
It’s where you’ll be please stay I love you
You’re in my heart that’s where you’ll be
Track Name: By My Side
So where would you be if you weren't here with me
Would it be where you were last night
And why should I believe what you are telling me
When I know something ain't right

So come a little closer you know it feels nice
To have you by my side
So come on over yeah it will only be time
And you'll be by my side oh you'll be by my side yeah yeah yeah yeah

Track Name: Mom's Ballad
I saw your smile in a little child’s face
Even though you’ve been gone for so long
Writing words on the paper as I sing along
It isn’t really fair that you’re gone

Sometimes I cry when I’m lonely
I cry cause you’re not here
It’s been so long it feels
Just like a million years

Since your arms were wrapped around me
Told me I was yours
Been a long time
That’s for sure

It’s been a long time mom
Since you’ve been gone
I don’t know if I’ll ever see you again
But if I don’t then I’ll cry once again

Used to make my school lunch
Take me out the lane
And when I’d come home
You’d pick me up again

Ask me how my day was
And you’d ask Jason too
You really made it easy
Wanting to love you

But the love that you have shown me
I fear has gone away
I know that dad would listen
I just find it hard to say

He seems so far away now
From the way he used to be
I guess that’s true of everyone
It’s even happening to me

But dad I know I’m not wrong
It just takes so long
And it’d be easier if mom were here
But she’s not
