(lyrics) Outta sight Didn't put up a fight Now I wonder if you're right This time Down and out Now I'm found out Another Saturday night out Wastin' time Now I'm complicated But I'm not quite elated To hear your point of view I guess I'm going to I'll take a seat I won't make you repeat What you want to say I know you've got a lot to say I know you've got a lot to say This time Come and go Now the true colors show Feelin' left out of the know Time after time Break it down Out on the streets of this town Gonna take another round Can ya do the time Now I'm complicated But I'm not quite elated To hear your point of view I know you really want me to I'll take a seat I won't make you repeat What you've come to say I know you've got a lot to say I know you've got a lot to say This time I know you've got a lot to say This time Words and Music by Mike Shupp Copyright (c) 2002 Workplace Music (BMI)

(lyrics) You watch the telephone so patiently And I leave you quite alone, that's kind of me I'm having trouble lately remembering my name Wish I could forget the rules of this sad game I would like to know I would like to know how How it ever came to this How ever did we miss A life made of memories and photographs Those were the days and we could always laugh I'm having trouble lately knowing who I am Wish I could remember if I gave a damn I would like to know I would like to know how How it ever came to this How ever did we miss I would like to know But I will never know how How it ever came to this And is this happiness Follow a dream into the deep sunset These are the days that we must not forget I'm having trouble lately knowing what to say How can you turn back when we've come all this way I would like to know I would like to know how How it ever came to this How ever did we miss I would like to know But I will never know how How it ever came to this It ever came to this We never wanted this We never wanted- Never wanted this Never wanted this Never wanted this Never wanted this Words and Music by Mike Shupp Copyright (c) 2002 Workplace Music (BMI)

(lyrics) Darling Can I thank you for the warning We'll pick up pieces in the morning And I guess I'll have to find you in Another life Where I'll be just what you wanted We'll be just gettin' started Maybe in another life We'll be happy to be there We won't have even one care And nothing left to prove Darling Now I see how I've been blinded Now I need to be reminded And I will be waiting for you in Another life Where I'll be just what you wanted Where we can never be parted Maybe there's another life We are willing to wait for I am dying to live for With nothing left to prove Darling There's no use in our pretending And it's alright to reach an ending 'Cause I know I'll find you in Another life Where I'll be just what you wanted We'll be just gettin' started Maybe in another life We'll be so happy to be there We'll find the answer to our prayers And nothing left to prove Words and Music by Mike Shupp Copyright (c) 2002 Workplace Music (BMI)

(lyrics) I don't know where I'll be tomorrow My world is torn apart I watched you walk away from me Watched you end it by degree Well you will never know how much You hurt me But you will know how cold A heart can be You'll never know the love The love that sets me free Well it sets me free Walk along this road to nowhere I feel your presence close and dark In the distance are you calling out Is this how you hoped it would turn out Well you will never know just what You were to me But you will know how cold This world can be You'll never know the love The love that sets me free Well it sets me free I don't know where I'll be tomorrow Our world is fading away I'm hanging on each word you said Hold on 'til this love is dead Well you will never know how much You hurt me But you will know how cold A heart can be You'll never know the love The love that sets me free Well it sets me free Set me free Words and Music by Mike Shupp Copyright (c) 2002 Workplace Music (BMI)

(lyrics) Would it complicate matters If I missed your smile My life is still the same After all this while Ordinary days, ordinary ways Of wanting you Could it be any sadder When you hide your tears Has nothing really changed After all these years Ordinary days, ordinary ways Of wanting you And you never had a clue Or gave a second thought Love can't find you where you are That's not what you were taught But you never take the chance Always too much to lose It's easier to make amends And never have to choose But I won't wait any longer Just to feel your touch I never ever guessed It would mean this much Ordinary days, ordinary ways Of wanting Waiting for the day, believing in the way I'm wanting you Ordinary days, ordinary ways Of wanting you Wanting you Wanting you Words and Music by Mike Shupp Copyright (c) 2002 Workplace Music (BMI)

(lyrics) You were one in a million I was ready to kill you With your borderline type personality I was caught in the middle In a world of trouble Couldn't face a life outside these walls Replay each unanswered call, but I'm Startin' to feel good again Didn't know if I had one single friend I'm ready to take you on again We'll start a brand new day I was taking for granted Thought the world was slanted I was losing touch with some reality And I already know you I've been meaning to show you I just need some time to sort things out Do you think you might help me out, 'cause I'm Startin' to feel good again Didn't know if I had one single friend I'm ready to take you on again And maybe learn this lesson in time Startin' to feel good again Startin' to feel Startin' to feel good again Startin' to feel Words and Music by Mike Shupp Copyright (c) 2002 Workplace Music (BMI)

(lyrics) You've got a lot on your mind And I'm not the dangerous kind You bring me down to my knees You shatter my world with ease Well it's all over town How your love broke me down It's all over town And I know how you love the sound You come apart at the seams You're following pipe dreams There's a benefit to the cost And you're writing off what you lost, what you lost Well it's all over town How your love broke me down It's all over town And I know how you love the sound Love the sound Love the sound Love the sound You're never right for the part And your life won't imitate art But you bring me down to my knees Your love is like a disease, my disease And it's all over town How your love broke me down It's all over town How your love broke me down And I know how you love the sound Love the sound Love the sound Love the sound Words and Music by Mike Shupp Copyright (c) 2002 Workplace Music (BMI)

(lyrics) You and me Want to be Forgiven You and me We all want to be Forgiven So take me there Take me to the place where I'm not the only one To the place where the things I've done Are erased And forgiven Here and now Is only doubt In living Here and now We go without Your blessing So take me there Take me to the place where I am not alone To the place where I can be known At last And forgiven All around Is only time And silence Crying out Into the night Your penance So take me there Take me to the place where the rivers flow To the place where we all must go Released Forgiven Words and Music by Mike Shupp Copyright (c) 2002 Workplace Music (BMI)

(lyrics) Don't keep runnin' away from trouble Got your head in the sand Don't you know it can only double, won't you Won't you show your hand Don't you think you should talk about it You're gettin' nowhere fast So she's havin' her doubts about it, don't you Want your love to last Well you don't have to be sad and lonely Don't have to lose what you found Just take a little advice go slowly In the end she'll come around In the end she'll come around In the end she'll come around You've been runnin' in place forever But you've run out of time And you pick up the pace together, then she Stops it on a dime Well it's just part of the process baby You're gettin' used to the sound Just try to open your heart and maybe In the end she'll come around In the end she'll come around Don't you let your love die down In the end she'll come around Don't you think you should talk about it You're gettin' nowhere fast So she's havin' her doubts about it, don't you Want your love to last Well it's just part of the process baby You're gettin' used to the sound Just try to open your heart and maybe In the end she'll come around In the end she'll come around Don't you let your love die down In the end she'll come around Words and Music by Mike Shupp Copyright (c) 2002 Workplace Music (BMI)

(lyrics) Clinging to something sane It's all you can do Find your way through the pain That's inside of you Purge the poison from your veins More than you knew Turn your face up to the rains They'll wash over you When love comes down from so far away And leads you out of your darkest day There's no more obstacles in your way Don't fight it You never will deny it Don't let it go Open your heart and let it in And love will take hold Give in to your only sin Your chances are sold When love comes down from so far away And leads you out of your darkest day There's no more obstacles in your way Don't fight it You never will deny it Don't let it go Purge the poison from your veins More than you knew Turn your face up to the rains Let them wash over you When love comes down from so far away And leads you out of your darkest day There's no more obstacles in your way Don't fight it You never will deny it Don't let it go Don't let it go Don't let it go Words and Music by Mike Shupp Copyright (c) 2002 Workplace Music (BMI)
