Track Name: I'm Into You
Close your eye
And as the world fades away
Listen to my voice and what it has to
What it has to say

I'm into you
Out of this whole wide world
I'm only into you

I'm into you
I'm looking out through love's eyes
I'm only into you

Like Leary said
Just relax and float down stream
Come to me you'll see it's not a dream
This is not a dream


I'm into you
Out of this great big world
I'm only into you

I'm into you
I'm looking out through love's eyes
I'm only into you

I feel your pain
Your tears wash over me
My heart would break
If you're not listening
Are you listening

I'm into you
I'm into you

I hear that song
"Just Walk Away Renee"
I fall apart 'cause it's saying everything
Everything I want to say


I'm into you
Out of this whole wide world
I'm only into you

I'm into you
I'm looking out through love's eyes
I'm only into you


I'm into you
I'm into you
Track Name: World In Love
She's suffered badly at the hands of love
Abused repeatedly you call that love
I call it tragic I call it lame
The way we treat each other it's insane

Will the world ever fall in love
Will the world ever fall in love
Will the world ever fall in love again

We take advantage of the ones we love
We lie cheat and steal and think that's love
We think too much we think we're so smart
What will it take to touch our hearts

Will the world ever fall in love
Will the world ever fall in love
Will the world ever fall in love again

Misfortune follows us around
Blame somebody else for all that's coming down

In the name of love we hate
For the sake of love we rape
It makes me sick it makes me weep
It's no wonder that I can't sleep

Will the world ever fall in love
Will the world ever fall in love
Will the world ever fall in love again
Track Name: She's Not There
I thought I felt her walk by me
I swear I heard her call my name
But when I turn to try and find her
She's not there
She's not there

I know I've always had this problem
Since the first love in my life
Though my heart tells me I still love her
She's not there
She's not there

I know I treated her badly
I could not wait to get away
Confusion led me down this dark road
And she's not there
She's not there

She was the only one
She was the only one
She is the only one

I was wrong I was mistaken
I can't begin to make amends
I let her slip right though my fingers
And she's not there
She's not there

Now I sit alone in darkness
Waiting for someone like her
And every time I think I've found her
She's not there
She's not there

Is this emotional surrender
To keep her vision burning bright
I am a prisoner of shadows
And she's not there
She's not there
She's not there
Track Name: Waiting For Lorraine
Waiting for Lorraine to come
Sitting on this broken bench alone

She said to meet her here
And we could go grab a beer
I'm waiting for Lorraine to come

Waiting for Lorraine to come
Waiting for the day when I won't be alone

She said she'd be here by ten
And I'm still sitting waiting
I'm waiting for Lorraine to come

Waiting for Lorraine
I'm waiting for Lorraine
Waiting for Lorraine
I'm waiting for Lorraine to come

Waiting for Lorraine to come
Talking to these shadows as they dance around 

I know it's getting late
And she might not keep our date
Still I'm waiting for Lorraine to come

Waiting for Lorraine
I'm waiting for Lorraine
Waiting for Lorraine
I'm waiting for Lorraine to come

Waiting for Lorraine to come
Looking past the street light for some sign of love

Is that her standing there
A halo in her hair
I'm waiting for Lorraine to come 

Waiting for Lorraine
I'm waiting for Lorraine
Waiting for Lorraine
I'm waiting for Lorraine

Waiting for Lorraine
I'm waiting for Lorraine
Waiting for Lorraine
I'm waiting for Lorraine to come
Track Name: Her Favorite Poem
Her favorite poem
Was lost many years ago
Misplaced or forgotten somehow
We'll never really know
Her favorite poem

Though tragically flawed
Her memory still clings
To bits and pieces
Old broken glass and worn-out string
Though tragically flawed


Pen to paper
Every word finds a place to hide
Every image disappears
Vanished with the tide
Pen to paper

She might recite for you
A verse maybe a few lines
Never together though
Never at the same time
She might recite for you

What stormy night is this
Where she has come to rest
What demons torment her soul
She will not confess
What stormy night it this

The fires burn
The flame says that he
He is the only one
The Adam to her Eve
The fires burn

Her favorite poem
Was it really so long ago
Young lovers danced beneath the moon
Bodies aglow
Her favorite poem

Old faded photographs
Found in a book of dreams
Reveals nothing
Except time is so extreme
Old faded photographs

Distorted rumors
Facts that lead nowhere
Faulty information
Dissolves the truth that once was there
Distorted rumors

Is there no end
To this madness caused by grief
Illusion takes its bloody toll
And gives back no relief
Is there no end

No safe harbor
No rewrite within sight
Her naked longing screams
Through this cold and desperate night
No safe harbor

The final word
One last bitter root to share
Is there no hope for someone
Swimming in despair
The final word

The final word
Track Name: Everything I Need
Last night as I walked home
After coffee at the Weatherstone
I'll use any excuse to be alone

I turned a corner you were standing there
With this new color in your hair
All I could do was stand and stare

I've got everything I need
I've got everything I want
I've got everything I need but you

You kind of smiled then walked away
I tried to move but there I stayed
I think maybe I might have lost my way

Now being lost it's no big deal
It's like an orange waiting to be peeled
But being lost in love is so surreal

I've got everything I need
I've got everything I want
I've got everything I need but you

Your love is breaking
This heart of stone
Your love is melting
The ice in my bones

And now I see you everywhere I go
The open mic. or at Audrey's show
We never talk we just let the river flow

I've heard that love from a distance works
Whoever said it must have been a jerk

'cause out of sight out of mind is gonna hurt

I've got everything I need
I've got everything I want
I've got everything I need but you

I've got everything I need
I've got everything I want
I've got everything I need but you
Track Name: Tambourine Girl
Hey hey hey hey
Be my tambourine girl
Hey hey hey hey
Be my tambourine girl

An emotional tide
Has swept over me
A fire a flame
That's burning though me

It keeps lifting me up
It keeps throwing me down

Hey hey hey hey
Be my tambourine girl
Hey hey hey hey
Be my tambourine girl

There's nobody home
In my part of town
Only a ghost
And she's not around

She keeps standing me up
She keeps knocking me down

Hey hey hey hey
Be my tambourine girl
Hey hey hey hey
Be my tambourine girl

Hey hey hey hey
Be my tambourine girl
Hey hey hey hey
Be my tambourine girl

I will always be
The darkest shade of blue
I will always see
The other side of you

Hey hey hey hey
Be my tambourine girl
Hey hey hey hey
Be my tambourine girl

An ocean of love
Is what I fear
Afraid that I'll drown
In a sea of tears

But I stand up
I turn around
I scream and shout

Hey hey hey hey
Be my tambourine girl
Hey hey hey hey
Be my tambourine girl

Hey hey hey hey
Be my tambourine girl
Hey hey hey hey
Be my tambourine girl
Track Name: Spanish Rose
This rose of love
This rose from Spain
This flood of tears
For a heart in pain
I'll never know
This dark rose of love

This captive dove
These angel wings
The song of sorrow
This gypsy sings
I'll never know
This dark dove of love

This moon of tears
This moon of love
This moon of death
Called down from above
I'll never know
This dark moon of love

My vision blurs
With love's alarms
He comes to me
Though others' arms
I'll never know
This dark man of love

This nocturne of death
In which we sleep
This dance of lost souls
Which makes dreams weep
I'll never know
This dark song of love

This Spanish heart
These Spanish eyes
This dagger of truth
That cuts through our lies
I'll never know
This dark heart of love

This blade of romance
Sunk deep in my breast
These rhythms of pain
I feel so blessed
But I'll never know
This dark blade of love

These pools of blood
The rivers run
A night so cold
His poem is done
I'll never know
This dark soul of love
Track Name: Alone Again
Here I go again
Breaking all the rules
I swore I'd never do that again

Everything was fine
Then one walk in the rain
Here come the tears and the pain 

I don't understand
Why am I the one
Always left alone in the end

All alone in the end
All alone in the end

Thought I was all right
I see I was wrong
I've been lying to myself all along

Turn another page
Read between the lines
Try to find this heartache of mine

True love take a bow
Night begins to fall
And I'm left all alone in the end

All alone in the end
All alone in the end

There's nothing for me here
I'm all alone with these desperate tears

You could say that I
Am living with a loss
I won't let go and can't see the cost

Lavender and blue
There's no escape
From this shadowy solitude

Angels weep for me
Love is made of sand
And I'm left all alone in the end

All alone in the end
All alone in the end
Track Name: She's Not In Love
She's not in love
She tells you not to waste your time
On her
She needs to be
Free as a bird or something
And you know what she means

So you tag along
You tell her you've got a hold of your heart
But you don't
It's running scared
It's running straight for those arms
But she's not there

She doesn't want to be
In love
She doesn't want to be
In love


She's not in love
Just the thought of it makes her squirm
Inside
She wants to be
On her own simple and free
Can't you see

She doesn't want to be
In love
She doesn't want to be
In love

Let her go
Let her go

She doesn't want to be
In love
She doesn't want to be
In love

She's not in love
You tell her that it's all right you're strong
But you're not
You fall apart
As you try and let go of your love
For her

Let her go
Let her go

She doesn't want to be
In love
She doesn't want to be
In love

She's not in love
She's not in love
She's not in love
She's not in love
Track Name: Ruebi
Where is my Ruebi
My little Ruebi
If you see her tell her
She's the only girl for me

Where has my Ruebi gone
All that's left is this tattoo on my arm
This world's a lonely place
Without the smile on my Ruebi's face
I stand on ancient ground
I scream her name the storm clouds gather 'round

Where is my Ruebi
My little Ruebi
If you see her tell her
She's the only girl for me

My Ruebi
My Ruebi

Where can my Ruebi be
I can't escape these chains of misery
The light of my life's gone
And darkness binds my to this underground
Is there one secret spell
One word to free me from this living hell


Where is my Ruebi
My little Ruebi
If you see her tell her
She's the only girl for me

My Ruebi
My Ruebi

I want my Ruebi
My little Ruebi
I want my Ruebi

Where is my Ruebi
My little Ruebi
If you see her tell her
She's the only girl for me

Where did my Ruebi go
It's been so long why can't I let her go
The rain keeps beating down
My eyes have dried but my heart has drowned
I want my Ruebi back
If you see her tell her I'm still wearing black


Where is my Ruebi
My little Ruebi
If you see her tell her
She's the only girl for me

My Ruebi
My Ruebi

If you see her tell her
If you see her tell her
If you see her tell her
That she's the only girl for me

My Ruebi
My Ruebi
My Ruebi
Track Name: A Minor Melody
a) Silent Heart

A silent heart
Beats soft and clear
Hides in the shadows
Veiled in tears

A silent heart
Reaches out for love
In loneliness
She finds a dark dove

Fly away little bird
If dreams are all that's left you
Fly away

A silent heart
Lives in pain
A silent heart
Slowly fades away

b) What Is Love

What is love I want to know
Is it magic or a myth
Could there be something
Something that I've missed

What is love I need to know
Is it real or just a dream
Or you telling me that love
Is not what it seems

Why can't it be
Just a little more fair
I thought that love was the one thing
That we all share

What is love I want to know
What is love I need to know
What is love

c) A World Of My Own

No need to wake me
You don't have to shake me
I'm in a world of my own

With no relations
No expectations
I'm better off on my own

That's what she told me
I just said hold me
But I guess I said it wrong

She said I'm living in a world of my own
And I'm not sure if it's right or it's wrong
But I've been living off of stardust so long
Now it's loneliness that's driving me on

She said I'm living in a world of my own
And I'm not sure if it's right or it's wrong
But I've been living off of stardust so long
Now it's loneliness that's driving me on

d) I Don't Want To Fall In love

Don't say that you love me
Don't tell me you'll always be there

Don't say that love is forever
Don't whisper softly in my ear

No I don't want to hear it
I don't want to hear it
I don't wanna fall in love

No I don't wanna fall in love
I don't wanna fall in love
Track Name: What Am I Going To Do
How many times can I tell you
What could I possibly write
What could I ever say to you
You haven't already heard twice

Know you tell me that it sounds like yesterday's news
And you've heard all of that before
Well I gotta admit you're probably right
So what am I doing it for


What am I gonna do
What am I gonna do
What am I gonna do about you
What am I gonna do

I can read about it in the papers
I can even see it on T.V.
But I never thought it would go like this
I never thought it'd happen to me

Well you tell me that you've heard this all before
You don't really want to get involved
I guess you're right I really know the score
So what am I doing it for


What am I gonna do
What am I gonna do
What am I gonna do about you
What am I gonna do


You know it's all over baby
When love calls your name
You know it's all over darling
When you start screaming in vain


What am I gonna do
What am I gonna do
What am I gonna do about you
What am I gonna do


I saw you last week at a concert
You were standing on a chair in the back
I know I shouldn't get so excited
But I'm a sucker for a girl in black

Now you tell me that it's time to open my eyes
And come down from the clouds
I guess you're right this will never work
So what am I doing it for
Track Name: Confusion
Ask a man ask a woman
Are we the same or are we different
Do our passions divide us
Down a pathway perilous

The answer's always the same
Confusion reigns

Love deifies love falters
Love fails to conquer
And in a whirlwind of anger
Still the heart stops to ponder

The question's always the same
Confusion reigns

And I know it's true
Since I've met you

We say we all want the same thing
Love and the happiness it brings
But if it's love that divides us
Then it's our pain that unites us

The question's always the same
Confusion reigns

Obsessions flame passions linger
Bitterness points its finger
And past the hallways of deceit
Is where we finally meet

The answer's always the same
Confusion reigns

And I know it's true
Since I've met you

Ask a woman or a man
If there is some divine plan
Has someone poisoned the well
Through these tears I can't tell

Love will fly
Love will crawl
Love will make fools of us all
