Track Name: My World
I pulled up on your pedestal but,
it wasn't strong enough and you fell down to me
and now I need you to see
I'm strong enough to hold you up
you can stay here with me

You've got this peace of mind ya,
I'd like to find it
and I'll open up my inside,
if you'd like to try it

Too many little, miserable hearts you have torn
but you'll find this irresistible, if it is yours

I'll put you in my world
and make ya feel so good

Right now, I'm crossing your mind and
all you can think about is how you want me to stay
cause I'm a strange man, giving you a simple plan
for something you wanna make, and

Too many little, miserable hearts you have torn
but you'll find this irresistible, if it is yours

I'll put you in my world
and make ya feel so good

I'll put you in my world
and make ya feel so good

Ya, you gave me your heart girl

Cause it only feels true....when I'm with you

The two of us used to have it....all
Track Name: Easy
This is an easy day
I found a love the stays
cause when the night rolls in
you'll pick me up again
there is an easy way
I found the drug that stays
cause when the night rolls in
you'll pick me up again....and I know it

If you can't take it,
take it no more...
and you feel like your stuck to the floor
well you can call me,
and I'll pick you up...
cause I want you to say

This is an easy day
I found a love the stays
cause when the night rolls in
you'll pick me up again
there is an easy way
I found the drug that stays
cause when the night rolls in
you'll pick me up again....and I know it

And if your tired,
and out of breath...
I'll be the air that your lungs get
and if you don't know,
which way to go....
I'll be the light in your tunnel

Cause I got your back on this baby,
and I got your back on that too
so why ya got to still worry...
when I want you, I want you.....I want you to say:

This is an easy day
I found a love the stays
cause when the night rolls in
you'll pick me up again
there is an easy way
I found the drug that stays
cause when the night rolls in
you'll pick me up again


Cause I got your back on this baby,
and I got your back on that too
so why ya got to still worry...
when I want you, I want you.....I want you to say:

This is an easy day
I found a love the stays
cause when the night rolls in
you'll pick me up again
there is an easy way
I found the drug that stays
cause when the night rolls in
you'll pick me up again
Track Name: Do you Do?
I ran into a man
he said that he didn't care
if he was in the way
he'd just keep standing there....until he wasn't scared
and then another man
came up behind him and
stared at the back of his head and said
"I should just keep standing here,
because he looks scared"

and then he looked at me too,
and said, "what about you,
what are you gonna do?"

and I said....
I am not wasting anymore time
because I can see the way I know is mine
and even if it isn't easy to live through
its what I gotta do

I listened to a man
as he was singing a song
he said it wouldn't be long before I'm singing it too,
"cause that's what I want you to do"
and then I asked him, "why?"
and he said, "because I had to try,
and try and try and try again...
it doesn't come easy my friend,
because before ya do it too...
someone has to just do.
Will that be you?"

and I said....
I am not wasting anymore time
because I can see the way I know is mine
and even if it isn't easy to live through
its what I gotta do

and I said....
I am not wasting anymore time
because I can see the way I know is mine
and even if it isn't easy to live through
its what I gotta do

ah, so now I gotta go! Go! Go!
ya I gotta go! Go! Go!

Do you Do?
Or do you do too?
Do you DO?
Track Name: Catch you
I'm only looking through the eye in the mirror,
It's only showing me what it can believe
why can't it be, like the way that it used to be?
what kind of changes are the ones that you keep?

Could it be true, that the door closed behind you?
your only focus was the thing that you need
doesn't it seem like its always in front of you?
would you remember it from the things that you've seen?

Cause I can not catch you
and I wanna catch you
I need to catch you

I'll never see like the way that I used to see,
the world around me can only increase.
I've had you once, and I want you again and again,
I'm always grasping for whats out of my reach

Cause I wanna catch you
and I cannot catch you
I need to catch you

Right there, calling my name
Right there, everything explained
Right there, take away my pain
Right there....and I cannot catch you
and I need to catch you!

I'm gonna catch you....
I'm gonna catch you...
