Track Name: Blackberry Beer
Well I went to the fair on a mighty fine day
Saw your smillin’ face lookin’ my way
Hoping and a prayin’ I could get you near
Started out pourin’ that blackberry beer
Blackberry beer, blackberry beer,
Gotta stop drinkin’ that blackberry beer

Then we closed down the fair on that mighty drunk night
Caressin’ and undressin’ in the queasy moonlight
You told me a secret that I didn’t wanna hear
Why d’ I start pourin’ that blackberry beer?
Blackberry beer, blackberry beer,
Gotta stop drinkin’ that blackberry beer

Cause you told me that story that I didn’t wanna hear
That sticky little secret got stuck in my ear
I gotta walk around keepin’ it year after year
And you got me paranoid and racked with fear
Over that stupid little story that I didn’t want to hear
Gotta stop drinkin’ that blackberry beer…

Well we stumbled down the lane
Till’ we were out in the clear
I was feeling like I wanted to smack you dear
Tryin’ hard to snarl but I could barely sneer
Started crying out tears of blackberry beer
Blackberry beer, blackberry beer,
Gotta stop drinkin’ that blackberry beer

Cause you told me that story that I didn’t wanna hear
That sticky little secret got stuck in my ear
I gotta walk around keepin’ it year after year
Man, you got me paranoid and racked with fear
Over that stupid little story that I didn’t want to hear
Gotta stop drinkin’ that Blackberry beer…

Now I’m awake in your bed on the very next day
Hopin’ your smiling face would just away
Hopin’ and a prayin’ I can get outta here
Gotta stop drinkin’ that blackberry beer

Blackberry beer, blackberry beer, gotta stop drinkin’ that black -
Blackberry beer, blackberry beer, gotta stop drinkin’ that blackberry-
Blackberry beer, blackberry beer, gotta stop drinkin’ that back blackberry beer.
Track Name: Are You Somebody Now?
Ah-ah-ah-are you s…s…somebody now?
Ah-ah-ah-are you s…s…somebody now?

Are you branded?
Are you linked in?
Got all the “likes” time will allow?

Ah-ah-ah-are you s…s…somebody now?
Ah-ah-ah-are you s…s…somebody now?

Are you hooked up?
Are you looked up?
Got a million hits and how?

When you’re no one
Come and find me
I’ll be waiting
When you’re no one
When you’re no one
Come and find me
I’ll be waiting
When you’re no one

Ah-ah-ah-are you s…s…somebody now?
Ah-ah-ah-are you s…s…somebody now?

Are you linked in?
Are you looked up?
Got all the “likes” time will allow?

Ah-ah-ah-are you s…s…somebody now?
Ah-ah-ah-are you s…s…somebody now?

Well if you’re ever
Disenchanted
And you take that final bow…

I’ll be waiting
When you’re no one
Come and find me
When you’re no one

When you’re no one
I’ll be waiting
Come and find me
When you’re no one…


When you’re no one
I will be waiting
Come and find me
When you’re no one…

When you’re no one
I’ll be waiting
Come and find me
When you’re no one…
Track Name: Until The Sunrise
Lost inside the neon
On the dance floor at the bar
Lies and smoke and mirrors
In the dash light of a car
Guess we been a roamin’
But we didn’t get too far
Let’s just wait until the sunrise

Wait until the sunrise
I think we’ll see the light
Wait until the sunrise
Our hearts will shine so bright
Don’t you even think of leavin’
In the middle of the night
Just wait until the sunrise

Been searching in the darkness
For a sweeter hand to hold
Been sifting through the shadows
For a heart that’s made of gold
Let’s just stop this roaming
Through the ruins of the road
And wait until the sunrise

Wait until the sunrise
I think we’ll see the light
Wait until the sunrise
Our hearts will shine so bright
Don’t you even think of leavin’
In the middle of the night
Just wait until the sunrise

I’ve been a lot of places
Can’t tell you where or why
I’ve seen a lot of faces
But yours lights up the sky
Stay with me tonight
And let me stare into your eyes
And wait until the sunrise

Wait until the sunrise
I know we’ll see the light
Wait until the sunrise
Our hearts will shine so bright
Don’t you even think of leavin’
In the middle of the night
Just wait until the sunrise
Track Name: California Winter
Hasn’t rained forever
Feels like it might storm
Some folks want to run inside
Where it is safe and warm
Me, I want to soak it in…
And watch the puddles form

Rain has finally found its way
Into the corners of this town
Many people love to stay
And watch the come down
Me I’m going to breathe it in…
And feel my wet heart pound

I’m wanna walk into the rain
It’s gonna clear my cluttered brain
I’m wanna stand there open-wide
I’m gonna take the rain inside
I wanna walk into the rain
It’s gonna wash my worried brain
And I will stand there open-wide
Where I will take the rain inside

I thirst for inspiration
A way to grow a thought
Despise this desiccation
Inertia that it wrought
I need a way to free my mind
And teach what I’ve been taught

I’m gonna walk into the rain
It’s gonna clear my cluttered brain
I’m gonna stand there open-wide
And I will take the rain inside
I’m gonna walk into the rain
It’s gonna wash my worried brain
And I will stand there open-wide
And I will take the rain inside

Well come on, come on, come on,
Come on, come on, come on, come on
California Winter
Well come on, come on, come on,
Come on, come on, come on, come on
California Winter

It hasn’t rained forever
I’m shriveled to the core
My dreams are dry and brittle
My spirit’s scorched and sore
The moment that I hear that rain
I’m heading out the door.
Track Name: I'm Done
I’m done with this
I’m done with me
Being some one I don’t want to be
I’m done with trying hard to stop
Done with dodging till I drop

I’m done with this
I’m done with you
Pretending you know what to do
And telling me to do it too
I’m done, I’m done, I’m done..

I’m done…
My dear I’m outta here - I’m done
Yes I said I’m done…
Stick a fork in me
I’m done.

I’m done with this
I’m done with sad
And I’m also done with feeling bad
And you’re the one who makes me mad
I’m done, I’m done, I’m done..

I’m done with this
I’m done with you
Complaining that you’re hurt and blue
And then making me feel guilty too
I’m done, I’m done, I’m done..

I’m walking out on all those words
You think I need to hear
And all those hyped-up stories
Of our mucked-up yesteryears
And you can’t even stop me
With your histrionic tears
Because I’m done with you my dear
I said I’m outta here I’m done

I’m done with this
Yeah I’m done with us
I don’t need you to make a fuss
‘Bout all those broken promises
Or feelings we might mend

I’m done with this
I’m done with us
I don’t need you to scream and cuss
‘Bout all the hours wasted
Our time is at an end

I’m walking out on all those words
You think I need to hear
And all those mucked-up stories
Of our fucked-up yesteryears
And you can’t even stop me
With your histrionic tears
Because I’m done with you my dear
I said I’m outta here I’m done

I’m good as gone...
So don’t call for me,
Cuz I won’t come…

I’m done with this
I’m done with me
Being some one I’m not supposed to be
I’m done with trying hard to stop
Done with dodging you ‘till I drop

I’m done with this
I’m done with you
Pretending you know what to do
And asking me to do it too
I’m done, I’m done, I’m done..

I’m walking out on all those words
You think I need to hear
And all those hyped-up stories
Of our fucked-up yesteryears
And you can’t even stop me
With your histrionic tears
Because I’m done with you my dear
I said I’m outta here I’m done

I’m done with this
I’m done with us
I don’t need you to make a fuss
‘Bout all the broken promises
Or those feelings we might mend

And I’m done with this
Yeah I’m done with us
I don’t need you to scream or cuss
‘Bout all the hours wasted
‘Cause our time is at an end…
