Track Name: None of These Songs Are About You
I know you might be worried and you might be worried sick
But trust me if you met me your impression didn't stick so
None of these songs are about you
None of these songs are about you

Call me Carly Simon or call me Taylor Swift
I wish you'd call me Jimi but then that would be a gift so
None of these songs are about you
None of these songs are about you

None of these songs are about you
None of these songs are about you
None of these songs are about you
None of these songs are about you
Track Name: Nothin'
Ain't nothin' to do
Ain't nothin' to do in this town
Ain't nothin' to see
Ain't nothin' to see in this city
Spending all my money, wasting all my time
Dreaming 'bout the day I used to call you mine
Ain't nothin' to do in this world without you

Ain't nothin' to see
Ain't nothin' to here darlin'
Ain't tears in my eyes
It's been years since I've cried

I guess I oughta, I oughta let you go

Baby I'm just wasting away
It's been so long and I wished you'd stayed
Haven't left my bedroom for days
You left me in a smoky haze

Ain't nothin' to do in this world without you

I remember everything
Last December you made me sing
You made me sing (ooo's)

You made me sing (ooo's)

You made me sing (ooo's)

Ain't nothin' to do
Ain't nothin' to see
Ain't no one like you

Baby I'm just wasting away
It's been so long and I wished you'd stayed
Haven't left my bedroom for days
You left me in a smoky haze

Baby I'm just wasting away
It's been so long and I wished you'd stayed
Haven't left my bedroom for days

There ain't nothin' to do
Ain't nothin' to do in this world without you
Track Name: Carry You Home
The wall stretches for miles
I walk in circles I walk with friends
No one knows where we're going
No one even knows when

Praise flowing as water
and nature sings his song
Patience is a virtue
we'll all know before long

If your feet should pain you
If your legs do tire
He will be behind you
Hope to help you transpire
Simple words for simple folks, salvation's coming
If your feet should pain you
He will carry you home

I grow weary and I grow tired
i beg for it to end
The only way to cleanse my soul is to
release all of my sins

Hope to end the battle
and love to heal our wounds
Faith can be hard to come by
but prayer will sustain

If your feet should pain you
If your legs do tire
He will be behind you
Hope to help you transpire
Simple words for simple folks, salvation's coming
If your feet should pain you
He will carry you home

Well I've been to Bethlehem
and I've seen the place where he was born
Bullet holes line the roof tile
A place to praise now a place to mourn

Anger can overwhelm us
and grief can cloud our sight
Peace comes at a strange price
Let us end the fight

If your feet should pain you
If your legs do tire
He will be behind you
Hope to help you transpire

He is always in our lives, sing alleluia
Alleluia, alleluia
Alleluia, alleluia

He is always in our lives, sing alleluia
Alleluia, alleluia
Alleluia, alleluia

If your feet should pain you
He will carry you home
Track Name: Girl of Your Dreams
Let me be the girl of your dreams
Day and night
I wanna be on your mind
Alright
You might not have met me but I'm gonna change your life

I'll be the poison that seeps in your veins
I'll be the curse that drives you insane
Your private catastrophe, you'll always remember me
as the good girl that felt so bad

Let me be the girl of your dreams
Day and night
I wanna be on your mind
Alright
You might not have met me but I'm gonna change your life

I'll be the serum that soothes your soul
I'll get you high when your feeling low
The sweetest symphony, you'll always remember me
As the bad girl that felt so good

(Trombone soli)

Hey-o hello
Aren't you gonna ask me my name?
You might not have met me but I'm gonna change your life

I'm gonna change your life
I'm gonna change your life
I'm gonna change your life
Track Name: For Now
You know the words to say to make me smile
Twist your fingers in my hair
I won't tell anyone what you're doing
Just let me stay here while you're sleeping

You'll tell me anything to make me think you're the one
(who makes me lonely)
You'll tell me anything to make me think you're the one
(who makes me lonely)

Doesn't matter I know our fate
You were at the right time and place
Use me and I'll use you
Don't worry, I want you to

Doesn't matter I know our fate
You were at the right time and place
Use me and I'll use you
Don't worry, I want you to
I want you
For now

You already know what to do
You already know what to
Say it anyway
Honestly is not a crime
I just wanna pretend you're mine

I won't tell anyone what you're doing
Just let me stay here while you're sleeping

You'll tell me anything to make me think you're the one
(who makes me lonely)
You'll tell me anything to make me think you're the one
(who makes me lonely)

Doesn't matter I know our fate
You were at the right time and place
Use me and I'll use you
Don't worry, I want you to

Doesn't matter I know our fate
You were at the right time and place
Use me and I'll use you
Don't worry, I want you to
I want you
I want you
I want you
I want you

For now
Track Name: Keep Your Hands To Yourself
No sir I'm not in the wrong location
I'll fight my way til I belong
I was born without the qualifications
that don't mean that I'm not strong
Nothing you can say will make me move along

I'm not looking for an explanation
I can reason, sir, just fine
I won't cater to your expectations
You never acquiesce to mine
If you tell me hurry then I'll take my time

So keep your thoughts to yourself
So keep your thoughts to yourself
So keep your thoughts to yourself
So keep your thoughts to yourself
You tell me not to worry that don't ease my mind

Say what you will bout my reputation
That won't make me hold my tongue
You can withhold all your recommendations
the way you think can't be undone
You lecture to your daughters but then not your sons
You say the fight is over but it's just begun

Keep your words to yourself (keep your words to yourself)
Keep your words to yourself (keep your words to yourself)
Keep your words to yourself (keep your words to yourself)
Keep your words to yourself (keep your words to yourself)
You tell me not to worry that don't ease my mind
If you're not in a hurry then you'll be left behind

I'm not trying to make a fuss
but know my heart breaks when you look at us
What you see is not reality
A dressed up version when you look at me
And keep your hands to yourself
Keep your hands to yourself
Keep your hands to yourself
Keep your hands to yourself

Keep your hands to yourself
Keep your hands to yourself
Keep your hands to yourself

I'm not trying to make a fuss
but know my heart breaks when you look at us
What you see is not reality
A dressed up version when you look at me
And keep your hands to yourself (Keep your hands to yourself)
Keep your hands to yourself (Keep your hands to yourself)
Keep your hands to yourself (Keep your hands to yourself)
Keep your hands to yourself (Keep your hands to yourself)

No sir I'm not in the wrong location
I'll fight my way til I belong
Track Name: Alone With You
Baby you might have noticed my bags at the door
And maybe you might even know what I'm leaving for
I've spent too many years crying out your name
Are you gonna listen?
I've spent too many nights wastin' all my tears
On you

Baby I ain't seen this sad look on your face before
And maybe you've realized that you're all that I've been living for
But being on my own sure beats being alone with you
And now that I'm grown I'll be gone, gone, gone, gone

(violin solo)

You've used me, confused me, abused me
Now baby I've turned to stone
You can beg me, beseech me, plead to me
Baby just leave me alone

I've spent too many years crying out your name
Are you gonna listen?
I've spent too many night wastin' all my tears

It took you awhile to notice
It'll take you longer to forget
Track Name: Call Me A Fool (As I Wait)
I've got nothing that you haven't seen before
There ain't nothing that I haven't felt before
I know you don't even care anymore ahh
Have you really never seen my tears before?
But please, don't stare

I can't write a book or write a song
I can't figure out where this went wrong
I need something stronger, hold my hand
This won't last much longer
As I wait for you
As I wait for you

A perfect moment just slips into the dark
As I waste my time just trying to play my part
And what good is there in playing by the rules?
When even the idiots make us look like fools
Well, call me a fool

'Cause
I can't write a book or write a song
I can't figure out where this went wrong
I need something stronger, hold my hand
This won't last much longer
As I wait for you
As I wait for you

Oooo, oooo
Oooo, oooo

I can't write a book or write a song
I can't figure out where this went wrong
I need something stronger, hold my hand
This won't last much longer
As I wait for you
As I wait for you
As I wait for you
As I wait for you

As I wait for you (I leave myself behind)
As I wait for you (I push the thoughts back in my mind)
As I wait for you
Track Name: Anytime
Anytime you're feeling lonely
Anytime you're feeling blue
Anytime you feel downhearted
That will prove your love for me is true

Anytime you're thinking bout me
That's the time I'll think of you
Anytime you say you want me back again
That's the time I'll come on home to you

Anytime will be the next time
Anytime at all will do
Anytime you're sure you want me back again
That's the time I'll come on home to you
