Track Name: The Next Best Thing
You want someone to love you
Someone to take his place
But the only thing you're looking for
Is someone with his face

I've tried so hard to tell you
But my words all come out wrong
I've crossed all the T's and I've parted the seas
Still he's the one you want
Still he's the one you want

Why not save it for someone who really loves you
Save it for someone to come along
Who's all that you need and nothing you want
Save it for the next best thing

You knew your days were numbered
When he took you by the hand
You'd be torn from the tree like the smallest of leaves
Broken like a grain of sand
Broken like a grain of sand

Why not save it for someone who really loves you
Save it for someone to come along
Who's all that you need and nothing you want
Save it for the next best thing

I tried so hard to tell you
But my words don't make a sound
They got lost on the breeze like a stone in the sea
Knowing that they won't be found
Knowing that they won't be found

Why not save it for someone who really loves you
Save it for someone to come along
Who's all that you need and nothing you want
Save it for the next best thing
Track Name: The Robin
I am waiting in the garden
As the sun begins to rise
To hear the robin sing the blues
Bring me all the latest news
From far across the sky

Crow is calling in the distance
The wren is whistling by my side
I hear the hissing from the trees
As the wind blows through the leaves
I'm running out of time

Nightingale might try to fool me
But I've heard the joke before
Jackdaw doesn't take requests
He sticks to what he knows the best
He doesn't need applause

Magpie tries to steal the spotlight
But he doesn't know the tune
Hummingbirds can't hit the notes
The ones that really hurt the most
The robin brings me back to you

And if that bird don't sing
I will wait again for what tomorrow brings

I am waiting in the garden
For that robin to arrive
The morning light will pretty soon
Drift into the afternoon
And then will come the night
Then will come the night
How will I survive
Track Name: Lost At Sea
I'm a lover lost at sea
I need the waves to carry me
To a place I knew before
A long, lost forgotten shore

I can feel the ocean breathe
The waters rise and fall beneath
Dragging me away from home
To a darkness down below

I can hear the sirens sing
'Batten down the hatches the storm is setting in'

Overboard and castaway
A prison made of foam and spray
I learned the ropes and I tied a noose
There's no one here to cut me loose

I can hear the sirens sing
Batten down the hatches the storm is setting in

I'm a lover lost at sea
I need you here to rescue me
Come to me and take my hand
Lead safely to dry land
Track Name: When Sunday Comes
When Sunday comes and I roll away that stone
Will you be here or will I find myself alone
Will you believe in me or will you doubt my word
When Sunday comes will you belong to me

When darkness falls and light has hit the road
The sun is gone and you're left out in the cold
Will you call my name or will you pass me by
When darkness falls will you belong to me

When Sunday comes and I roll away that stone
Will you be here or will I find myself alone
Will you believe in me or will you doubt my word
When Sunday comes will you belong to me will you belong to me
Track Name: Feeling Blue (Live At The Green Note)
Don't take the poison when the water's safe to drink
Don't let your eyes close you might miss it if you blink
Don't take the fall when you know you should be standing tall
Don't waste your whole life feeling blue

Don't burn the letter when there's more you have to read
Don't learn your lessons from the ones who cannot teach
Don't get left behind when you're staring at the finish line
Don't waste your whole life feeling blue

Forget your umbrella, the weather's much better than you think
Forget tomorrow, you'll see your sorrow start to shrink

Don't point the finger when there's dirt beneath your nail
Don't let your future run your dreams right off the rail
Don't play the fool when there's so much more that you can do
Don't waste your whole life feeling blue

Don't pick the lock when you've got keys to fit the door
Don't keep your mind on all those things you had before
Don't break your heart when you can tear somebody else's world apart
Don't waste your whole life feeling blue

I won't waste my whole life over you
