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

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

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)
4.
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

Suppose 02:57
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

Daniel 03:20
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)

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

Jennie 03:08

Mom's Ballad 03:20
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
