Track Name: Everybody Knows But You
everybody knows but you
everyone can see it but you
well it's not supposed to be in the cards
that fool slips in wherever he wants

and everybody knows it but you
everybody knows it but you
everywhere we go
everyone we see
can see

everybody knows but you
everyone can see it but you
when ruebi read my palm she just smiled
she laughed and said this might take awhile

and everybody knows it but you
everybody knows it but you
everywhere we go
everyone we see
can see

everywhere we go
everyone we see

everybody knows it but you
everyone can see it but you
it's just a little secret i keep from you
but it's something we both could use

everywhere we go
everyone we see

and everybody knows it but you
everybody knows it but you
everywhere we go
everyone we see
can see
Track Name: Nature Girl
there is a girl
a very strange nocturnal girl
who's very shy
yet very wish
and also sad and blue

she came my way
on a cold dark rainy day
and though worlds apart
she stole my heart
and nothings been the same

you know there's just one thing
you could learn from me
and that's the sacred sound
of the holy bells
and as she turn around
she halfway smiled and said to me

love is all
love is everything
but when you've lost
lost your love
it's the saddest thing
it's the saddest thing
in the world
Track Name: Bodyguard
I think I need a bodyguard
to keep me safe from harm
cause love has left me broken
hurting and wanting
how could it be so cruel

I could not imagine
things could get much worse but
you know they always do
every time I think I'm
finally getting past it
I fail and feel like a fool

I think I need a bodyguard
wont you be my bodyguard

I think I need a smiling face
someone to help me get through
cause I am lost and drowning
slipping and sinking
in this ocean of blue

I remember walking strait into a nightmare
all my secret fears come true
someone should have told me
from the very start that
love would brake me in two

I think I need a bodyguard
wont you be my bodyguard

I think I need a bodyguard
wont you please be my bodyguard

I think I need protection from
a world that's grown so lame
and you know were to find me
slipping through the shadows
to avoid the pain

I guess I should warn you
everybody says that
I've gone a little insane
and I just have to laugh
cause I don't think their wrong no
I hold live to blame

I think I need a bodyguard

wont you be my bodyguard
Track Name: Shakespeare's Daughter
meet me at the bookstore
a quarter after 10:00
on the weekends their open 'till one
so we'll have time to spend

we'll go up and down the isles
searching for mysteries
then we'll sit and drink some coffee
and talk of things to be

I found this note slipped in my backpack
signed shakspeare's daughter in red

meet me this thursday
for poetry unplugged
I plan to get there real early
and grab that corner table that you love

then we'll listen to the words dance
in and out of symmetry
or just sit out in the ally
with our cigarettes and dreams

i found this note in my coat pocket
signed shakespeare's daughter in red

meet me in the park
by the duck pond next to the playground
please bring your spanish guitar
you know I love the way that it sounds

I'll get off around 11:00
hop on my bike and head strait over
then you can sing to me of heartbreak
my tears will dry on your shoulder

i found this note next to my bookmark
signed shakespeare's daughter in red
shakespeare's daughter in red
Track Name: Open Your Heart
what's the matter
mister big shot
isn't she fallen for you
you talk a good game
but I think it's plane
she's just to smart for you

cause it doesn't mean a thing
until you

open your heart
open your heart
it doesn't mean a thing
until you
open your heart

what's your problem
morning glory
isn't he into you
he's not buying
what your selling
I guess he's nobody's fool

cause it doesn't mean a thing
until you

open your heart
open your heart
it doesn't mean a thing
until you
open your hear

I hear the wind
blowing throw the leaves
in the trees
I hear your voice
softly
whispering to me

open your heart
open your heart
it doesn't mean a thing
until you
open your heart

okay it's my turn
I guess I owe you one
what is it you want to hear
that I messed up
I traded love for lust
hear me screaming through these tears

that it doesn't mean a thing
until you

open your heart
open your heart
it doesn't mean a thing
open your heart
open your heart
it doesn't mean a thing
until you
open your heart
Track Name: Long Ago
the birds still sing
their sweet sad songs
at least there sad to me

for I have lost
my one true love
and so I sit a grieve

long ago
long ago
I lost my love so long ago

forget the sun
forget the days
for me there's only night

my world won't turn
if she's not here
and so I sit and grieve

long ago
long ago
my world stopped turning long ago

the moon and stars
still shine for me
but such an icy blue

my heart can't sing
if she's not here
and so I sit and grieve

long ago
long ago
my heart stopped singing long ago

yes beauty's left her mark on me
and so I sit and grieve

long ago
long ago
my world stopped turning
ny heart stopped singing
I lost my love so long ago
