Track Name: I Could Never Be
Just tell me what you've got to say to me,
I've been waiting for so long to hear the truth,
It comes as no surprise at all you see,
So cut the crap and tell me that we're through.

Now I know your heart, I know your mind,
You don't even know you're being unkind,
So much for all your high brow Marxist ways,
Just use me up and then you walk away.
Boy, you can't play me that way.

Well I guess what you say is true,
And I'll never be the right kind of girl for you,
I could never be your woman.

I could never be your woman,
I could never be your woman,
I could never be your woman.

When I saw my best friend yesterday,
She said she never liked you from the start,
Well me, I wish that I could claim the same,
But you always knew you held my heart.

And you're such a charming, handsome man,
Now I think I finally understand,
Is it in your genes, I don't know,
But I'll soon find out, that's for sure,
Why did you play me this way?

Well I guess what you say is true,
I could never be the right kind of girl for you,
I could never be your woman.

I could never be your woman,
I could never be your woman,
I could never be your woman.

Well I guess what they say is true,
I could never spend my life with a man like you.
I could never be your woman.

I could never be your woman,
I could never be your woman,
I could never be your woman.
Track Name: Bobby's Dad
Every time I stop and take a look around
Everything’s just moving too fast
When nothing I do seems to make any difference
Wanna know why I bother

When I look in your eyes doesn’t matter that I’m lonely
When I see your face all my failures fall away
I’m just driving you to school but you think I’m so cool
Just a little boy’s father

When I’m Bobby’s Dad
I’m a freakin’ superhero
I’m the man with a plan
I can make you fly
I’m Bobby’s Dad
I know why I am here
So I can see you when you smile

You’re a crazy kid but I love you anyway
Even when you kick your brother’s knee
And I don’t understand half of what you gotta say
But I love it when you say it

Every picture you draw is a little masterpiece and when you
Sing off-key it’s like Handel in my ears
If you wanna play a game, doesn’t matter how lame
Kid you know I’m gonna play it

When I’m Bobby’s Dad
I’m a freakin’ superhero
I’m the man with a plan
I can make you fly
I’m Bobby’s Dad
I know why I am here
So I can see you when you smile

There’s a part of my heart
That lives for being with you
And I know that I sometimes
Let you down
But I’ve come so far
And I never wanna miss you
Gonna hold you while you’re
Still around

So there~

I know that one day you’ll be grown and gone away
I know you’re gonna make me proud
I know every time you say that you wish I’d go away
It’s already forgiven

You’re a beautiful boy and you helped make me a man
And when you be a man too I’mma help you find the way
Your name may be plain, but goddammit you’re a Cain
And we’re never gonna give in

When I’m Bobby’s Dad
I’m a freakin’ superhero
I’m the man with a plan
I can make you fly
I’m Bobby’s Dad
I know why I am here
So I can see you when you smile
Track Name: Shallow Song
I wrote some music today
Nothing in the words
A hollow tune to play
Once upon a time they
Swelled with life from a
Heart that's become clay

I wrote a sad song today
Something in the sound
Lacked feelings that would stay
I wish that I could relay
A little of how I feel
But the feeling's gone away

Hey~
Why's the music gone so flat
Oooh, oooooh
Hey~
Ohhh~

I tried to jot down a letter
Thinkin' I'd feel better
Once I got my thoughts up on the wall
Isn't it funny how
The one song I get running now
Just whines about how I can't write at all

Hey~
Why's the music gone so flat
Oooh, oooooh
Hey~
Ohhh~

Now there's something in the sound
Like rain upon my soul
And it burns me like some acid
Leaves a hole
I don't want the music to hurt me
But I can't get away
When the emptiness leaves a vacuum
Light flees from the day

There! In silence a scream!
Probably just a hope
But it sounds so real to me

The straws I grasp for are brittle
Even just a little
Meaning warms me like the sun
Every word drains me now
Each song adds to this darkened cloud
Each time I wonder if I'm finally done

Hey~
Why's the music gone so flat
Oooh, oooooh
Hey~
Ohhh~
Track Name: To Amanda (Bon Voyage)
Haven't you heard
Her ship sailed away
She left without
Saying goodbye

No kiss of cheek
Embrace nor even
A wave of a scarf

I gave to you
A piece of my heart
To hold until we
Meet again

That divided soul
Though promised your return
Can't feel its other
Now it's just a broken heart

I'm not okay
But I'll soldier on
I hope that someday
I'll find you
Wherever you've gone
I hope it was worth it
What you left behind
Was worth it too

Reaching inside
To search for the words
A lyric to bid you
Farewell

Torn up sheets
Of musical notation
Just garbage in your wake

Was life so hard?
Couldn't you tell me?
What set your heart
To sailing

Did I at least
Bring joy to your day
A smile to your lips
As you sailed away?

I'm not okay
But I'll soldier on
I hope that someday
I'll find you
Wherever you've gone
I hope it was worth it
What you left behind
Was worth it too

Didn’t you know that you
Were more than special
You were the light in
The dark of my life
And I can’t help but think
Can’t help but wonder
If something I said
Something I didn’t say

Now I'm not okay
But I'll soldier on
I hope that someday
I'll find you
Wherever you've gone
I hope it was worth it
What you left behind
Was worth it too
