Track Name: Woke Up
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
Track Name: Jaguar
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
Track Name: So So So So
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)
Track Name: If I Were More Like You
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
Track Name: I Can Hear My Voice
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
Track Name: Only One
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?
