Big Bad World

length: 3:07

It's a big bad world
We're doing what we can
Sometimes we fall on our face
Before we even learn to stand
But we get back up
Shake off all the dust
And take it step by step

I can fill the whole floor to the ceiling
With all the dead wrong choices I've made
And even though we try to learn
From each others mistakes

[Chorus]
We'll do it again (doing it again)
We'll do it again my friend (doing it again)
We'll do it again and again
'Till eventually we change
The way its always been

It's a big bad dream
Following your heart
Sometimes the one you
Need's the one that tears you apart
So you say goodbye
Kiss her one more time
And cry the whole way home

I can fill up the driest river
With all the tears falling off of my face
And even though we try to learn
From each others mistakes

[Chorus]
We'll do it again and again
'Till eventually we change
The way its always been

Just running 'round in circles
Tripping over every hurdle
We're just trying to do the best that we can

Well it's a big bad life
All that we can do
Is try to make it right
Tomorrow something new
So if a big rain cloud
Follows you around
Don't let it get you down

[Chorus: x2]

We do it again and again
'Till eventually we change
The way it's always been.

Natural Disaster

length: 3:40
She said she saw me on TV
This girl's a legend in the late night scene
And you can see she aimed to please
'Cause she just wouldn't take her eyes off me

She made the music come to life
She moved her body like a butcher knife
Chopping up every guy in sight
She was mysterious
I could not resist to save my life

[Chorus]
I don't know what this girl was after
She's a natural (oh) natural disaster
She's so sexy
I had to have her
She's a natural (oh) natural disaster
Natural disaster

And when she left me on the floor
She knew I'd follow her right out that door
She'd always leave you craving more
Just the addiction I've been waiting for

She made the music come to life
Staring me down with those electric eyes
And when she said "your place or mine?"
I was delirious, I could not resist to save my life

[Chorus]

(All my love)
What's your name?
What's your game?
Show me how to play
(All night long)
'Cause I can see you and me going all the way
(All night long)
I don't even really care what you're after
(All night long)
As long as you keep going faster, faster

She said she saw me on TV
This girl's a legend in the late night scene
And you can see she aimed to please
'Cause she just wouldn't take her eyes off me

[Chorus: x2]

Serious Mistake

length: 3:32
I am not a church going man, but father please won't you hear my confession.
There's a situation at hand though I have sinned won't you teach me a lesson.
I deserve nothing less than the worst you can do,
Father please make me more like you.

[Chorus]
I've made a serious mistake,
I hope it's not too late to fix the heart I'm breaking.
I've made a serious mistake,
I hope it's not too late to fix the heart I'm breaking.
I've made a mistake.

I am not a church going man, but I'm in desperate need of forgiveness.
I lost track of who I really am,
My own mother won't believe that I did this.
I deserve nothing less than the worst you can do,
Father please make me more like you

[Chorus]

I keep on letting myself down.
Even the rats say they don't want me around.
But every heart will someday break,
Everyone will make mistakes, wanna live with no regrets,
Walk the fine line between love and sex.
I deserve nothing less than the worst you can do.
Father please make me more like you.

I've made a serious mistake,
I hope it's not too late to fix the heart I'm breaking.
I've made a mistake

To fix the heart I'm breaking
I, I've made a serious mistake
And I hope it's not too late to fix the heart
I'm breaking
I'm breaking
I'm breaking
I've made a mistake

I am not a church going man but Father please won't you hear my confessions.

Rainy Day

length: 3:11
Oh, it's another rainy day,
Another excuse for me to hide away,
Fog on the window I write your name,

Oh, it's another rainy day.
Outside a cloud is forming,
In my heart the rain is pouring down, endlessly
The sky is gray just like me,
Just like me.

Oh, it's another rainy day
The sun isn't out to scare the dark away
Step outside and try to wash you away,

Oh, it's another rainy day,
Outside a cloud is forming,
In my heart the rain is pouring down, endlessly
The sky is gray just like me,

And all my tears flood the streets,
The sky is gray just like me,
Just like me.

Well it's cold and it's gloomy,
What are you doing to me?
Is the storm ever breaking

If only you could make it stop raining
Outside a cloud is forming,
In my heart the rain is pouring down, endlessly
The sky is gray just like me

And all my tears flood the streets
The sky is gray just like me,
Just like me.

(Oh, it's another rainy day)
Just like me
(Oh, it's another rainy day)
Just like me
(Oh it's another rainy day)
Just like oh, it's another rainy day.

That Girl

length: 3:07
I met a girl and it was easy to see
That she was falling hard for me
That girl
She wanted me to know
And by the time the night was ready to end
She grabbed a hold of both my hands
That girl
She wouldn't let me go
And now I'm singing

[Chorus]
Do do do you wanna be on top
Or on the
Ba ba bottom don't make me stop
'Cause I know oh oh
I'm in la la love with you girl
I can't stop singing
Do do do you wanna spend the night
And wake uh uh up
Under the morning light
'Cause I know oh oh
I'm in la la love with you girl

I really thought that she was taking it slow
When she asked me to take her home
That girl
Kept giving me the eye
I said goodnight we traded numbers and stares
But she said "you're not going anywhere"
That girl
She made me come inside
And now I'm singing

[Chorus]

La la love with you girl
La la love with you girl
Yeah, oh yeah,

And now I'm singing
Everybody sing it with me
Do do do
Ba ba ba
Oh oh oh
La la la
Yeah,
(One more time, yeah)
Do do do
Ba ba ba
Oh oh oh
La la la
Yeah,

[Chorus]

Yeah,
La la love with you girl
La la love with you girl
Yeah

Sunlight

length: 3:50
When the storm won't end
On your raging sea
When you've all but given up
Float back to me

When the waves come down
And your arms get weak
When you're tired of bailing out
Float back to me

[Chorus]
'Cause I can see sunlight
Through my window
If you open your eyes you'll
Find your way back home
Sunlight
Through my window
If you open your eyes you'll
Find your way back home

When you're all alone
Stuck in the dark
When you've lost your way in life
I won't be far

When the seasons change
And you fall apart
When the winter chill is near
I won't be far

[Chorus]

Baby,
Can you hear me?
Come home
Baby,
I need you near me
Come home

(Home)
(Home)

[Chorus]

Well it's lonely now
In this hotel room
And these sheets are empty, love
Waiting for you.

I Really Want You

length: 2:58
Can't believe the feeling that I felt when I saw you
If I was an artist, onto paper I would draw you
Hang it on a wall with all the masterpieces
'Cause that's where you belong

Before long the people would be lined up down the streets just to see you
People that will never get the chance to really meet you
They won't see in this gallery just how beautiful you are

[Chorus]
You know I want you
I really want you
Don't know how bad I want you
I really do

Can't believe the feeling that I felt when I met you
If I was the pilot of a jet then I would let you
Fly us all the way up far into the stars
'Cause that's where you belong

Before long the people would be wondering why we've gone celestial
People would be wondering what makes you so special
They won't see in this galaxy just how beautiful you are

[Chorus]

And when I finally get you
I'll probably want somebody else
Ain't that the way it goes

[Chorus]

You don't know how bad I want you
I really do
Yeah,
And when I finally get you
I'll probably want somebody else
I really want you.

Meet Me in California

length: 3:34
I knew that this was wrong as I
Stood reaching for the bedroom light
But she turned me on
So I turned it off
Now every man has got his flaws
His breaking point, his sacred cause
And I had mine
But I crossed that line
Now I could never ask you to
Forgive me for the things I do
But if you ever need me
You know where I'll be

[Chorus]
Meet me in California
I'll be there waiting for your call
I'll be there waiting for you
'Cause you know in California
There's something better for us all
Meet me in California

This night was like a bible verse
With pages torn and missing words
Condemning me

And I'm on my knees
I wish that I could start again
Peel the past like sunburned skin
Right off of me

Now I could never ask you to
Forgive me for the things I do
But if you ever need me
You know where I'll be

[Chorus]

I don't wanna say goodbye
And I don't wanna make you cry
I just wanna see you smile again

'Cause everything I used to be
Is waiting over there for me
This is a beginning not an end

Now I could never ask you to
Forgive me for the things I do
But if you ever need me
You know where I'll be

[Chorus]

Oh, oh, I'll be there waiting for you
'Cause you know in California
There's something better for us all
Meet me in California.

Someday

length: 3:40
[Chorus]
Someday we'll all get started
Someday we'll have what we wanted
Someday we'll want what's better
Someday we'll all live forever

Oh, oh

Someday we'll all reach higher
Someday we won't be so tired
Someday we won't say never
Someday we'll all be together

Oh

What if we all could just agree
(What if we all could just agree)
To live together in the world, in perfect harmony?
And what if we all could find a way
(What if we all could find a way)
To live a better life today?

[Chorus]

Oh, they will never understand us
Oh, wouldn't want it any other way
Oh, they won't always stand against us
Oh,

What if we all could just agree
(What if we all could just agree)
To live together in the world, in perfect harmony?
And what if we all could find a way
(What if we all could find a way)
To live a better life today?

[Chorus]

Someday we'll all reach higher
Someday we won't be so tired
Someday we won't say never
Someday we'll all be together

Oh,

Someday we'll all live together
Someday we'll all live together
Someday we'll all live together
