Woke Up 03:46
I woke up in the morning I awoke with the sun inside my face I woke up with the moon outside Blind me through the blinds And I wondered if it's true what your girlfriends say They can spin another web and I'll get nothing but a thread I get sad I get lonely I get under my own skin I get under my blankets Fall asleep for days Cause I guess it must be true what your girlfriends are telling me They can weave another tale and I'll end up with a friend Why is it so easy to feel like you're the only one Hanging around Waiting for love to come your way? You'd think anyone could feel a little bit more

Jaguar 03:07
Hold me now Can you tell that I'm driving you away? You and me in the back seat of a Jaguar How I hate to dream When I know that I will only wake To see you and me in the back seat You little one of mine

So So So So 03:03
You could be having so much more You could be happy so much more So alone are you You could be laughing so much more You could be happy so much more So alone are you Wakey-waking up at night Sleepy-sleeping through daylight So alone are you (so alone we are) You could be happy so much more You could be having so much more So alone are you (so alone we are)

Golden grass now has a shine that only comes in summertime Too dry to grow, not dry enough to die And walking toward a closing door, you can't help but feel you're growing old Funny how a change can come so slow If I were more like you I'd listen very close If only you were here with me To whisk away each lazy day Watch them as they pass away "I've Just Seen a Face I Can't Forget" is playing on the radio, And then I think of certain places that I used to go Thoughts that come to me when I'm alone, I wonder if I'll need them Funny how you never really know If I were more like you I'd listen very close If only you were here with me To whisk away each lazy day Watch them as they float away

I can hear my voice calling you back to me Let the night roll in, let it come rolling in My eyes fill with wonder In slumber, They turn until I can plainly see My own history Coming back to me

Only One 03:10
When you feel like only one, You are not the only one Waiting for someone to come your way Will she brighten your lonely eyes? Will she never never say goodbye? Darling, when will you hear? Your face is soft next to mine But your voice is moving away And every bone of mine Seems to call you back Well you've made it almost all the way Sleeping all of every day It's your happiness It's your happiness Darling, when will you hear?
