Track Name: Love Lover
I'm no longer angry
I'm no longer sad
I'm no longer sitting 'round feeling sorry for myself
I'm glad to have the chance
To tell the world just what your love has done
And why I feel so differently
It's 'cause your love has made a love lover out of me

I'm no longer crying
How could I be mad
When I've finally found someone who has canceled any doubt
I've had about the way I feel
What was before I fear no more
And I welcome what will be
Now that your love has made a love lover out of me

And I was never the one in a party of two
No I was never a fan of the positive view
And I never thought love would set me free
Until your love made a love lover out of me

Undivided understanding
That's the way it should be
Uncommitted, undecided
No, there's no guarantee
But my love has been waiting way too long
To waste time with uncertainty

And I was never the one in a party of two
No I was never a fan of the positive view
And I never thought love would set me free
Until your love made a love lover out of me

Track Name: Needless to Say
All the stuff I saved up then gave up for good
To be what you wanted
I have come to take back and make back my own
To get back where I started

And on my rainy days
I'm finding different ways
To use up what I've saved

Needless to say, the doors are wide open
Needless to say, I've stepped outside
Needless to say, it's more or less true
I need more of me, I need less of you

All that stuff you told me that sold me on you
I've come to return it
'Cause it was useless, through the true test of time
I can't believe that I bought it

You almost had me fooled
Disguising your bad moods
But they were too true to be good

Needless to say, you're a mindless distraction
Needless to say, I've got less on my mind
Needless to say, it's more or less true
I need more of me, I need less of you

Not a lot left to discuss
About what we've become because
It should be obvious

Needless to say, I'm doing less damage
Needless to say, I'm getting more done
Needless to say, it's more or less true
I need more of me, I need less of you

Track Name: See Love
Said those words
In what was once a foreign tongue to me
But now I see love
And say love
I love you

Wear your fingerprints
Like armor against the enemy
Who cannot see love
Can't say love
I love you

You bring order to my chaos
With a thousand, thoughtful things
You find our corner inside circles
You put air under my feet

That's how I see love
I see love everywhere

Chased my ideal down
And I finally found someone who simply
Lets me see love
And say love
I love you

Under open sky
Every space that's in between
That's where I see love
And say love
I love you

Oh and when the camera finds us
And we smile into the lens
We'll make our old photos jealous
As we burst out through the frame

That's how I see love
I see love everywhere

You bring order to my chaos
With a thousand, thoughtful things
You find our corner inside circles
You put air under my feet

That's how I see love
I see love everywhere

Track Name: Now
So this
This is what it is now
We are breathing on our own now
The deepest breath, exhale regret
Yet the air is thinner at the end now

So this
This is what you want now
You are moving on your own now
Strings untied, life undefined
Determined to return to simple ways now

Now comes the dark and the light
My tumble down a gradual decline
Bring me a quieted mind now

So this
This is who we are now
We are walking on our own now
Streets are paved, we know our way
But I think I'll take a different road now

Track Name: Goodbye Seventh Avenue
Pay your respect to the trade off
Regrets are unwelcome
Leave it behind
You will find you won't miss where you don't go

Say goodbye to what you know
Say goodbye fourteen below
Say goodbye to downtown view
Say goodbye, Goodbye Seventh Avenue

Keep it alive
Go outside there's a remedy waiting
A simple solution will prove to be validating

Say goodbye to what you know
Say goodbye, it's time to go
Say goodbye to downtown view
Say goodbye, Goodbye Seventh Avenue

Say goodbye, Goodbye Seventh Avenue

Track Name: Only Tuesday
Baby
You said you'd be back by the weekend
I'm keeping busy, but it's hard to wait another day for you

And it's only Tuesday
Endure the meantime and the malaise
Staying up all night blurs the waking hours as I count down to you

Patience promises such great return
But we've learned promises break
And it's only Tuesday

Baby
You said there'd never be a delay
I'm keeping busy, but it's hard to wait another day for you

Track Name: Tonight
Sweet humidity
Curl my toes and hair
Curling my toes and hair
Sweet sincerity
Unsettling surprise
Slide over to me dear

I see stars up on the ceiling
Faith is restored to sleepy eyes
Light in my head
Light in my step tonight
Tonight

Breathe serenity
Calm my nervous heart
Calming my nervous heart
Breathe in symmetry
Perfect by design
Finding the missing part

Now I see stars up on the ceiling
Faith is restored to sleepy eyes
I'm out of my head
It's out of my hands tonight
Tonight

I gave into the thought of you
In spite of what I thought I'd do
Will you follow through tonight

Now I see stars up on the ceiling
Faith is restored to sleepy eyes
Light in my head
Light in my step tonight
I'm out of my head
It's out of my hands
Tonight

Track Name: Us Apart
It's not what you are
It's what I wanted you to be
Your sweetness and your charm
Just a figment of imaginary

It was just enough to tempt me
But not enough to sell me

It wasn't what you said
It was what I thought I heard
So distracted by sound of each melodious phrase that you turned

It was just enough to tempt me
But not enough to sell me

And it pulled us apart
We're like a chocolate caramel heart
Broken on the inside
Watch how the outside melts

It isn't what you've done
It's what I hoped that you would do
But my hopes were so easily dashed
I knew you'd never see it through

And it was not enough to tempt me
And not enough to sell me

And it keeps us apart
Best to end it before it can start
Harden up the outside
Wait for the next time...
