Track Name: Do What You Want
Stay with me, take the night off
I'll be here with the light on
You decide what you abide

What's the point of living
If you can't have any fun?
What's the point of heaven
if you don't know anyone?

So lay with me in the magic
Breathe it in, break your habits
Rest a spell then raise some hell

I don't understand
Why you gotta work so hard
The world is full of players
Only I know we're the stars

What's the point of doing anything
If you can't do what you want to?

Stay with me in the madness
Stop your toil, get distracted
Honestly believe in we

What's the point of loving
If you keep it on the shelf?
You leave me all alone and I am
Nothing by myself

What's the point of doing anything
If you can't do what you want to do?

(Instrumental)

What's the point of doing anything
If you can't do what you want to do?
What you want to do
What you want to do oo
Track Name: Allston (Dance Around)
woo oo woo oo woo oo oo

Take a southbound train
To a dead end street
Where the dead beats meet
On their losing streak
Had my fill of work
Gonna stay out late
Strung out on sleeping
Now I’m wide awake
And I wanna dance around dance around,
and I wanna jump around, jump around,
And I wanna scream and shout, scream and shout
and I wanna shout it out, shout it out, out loud

Like a picture show
I pretend it’s true
Get a brand new view
To fix my attitude
I’ve been working hard
Just to stay afloat
I don’t to care to linger
Don’t wanna be alone
And I wanna dance around dance around,
and I wanna jump around, jump around,
And I wanna scream and shout, scream and shout
and I wanna shout it out, shout it out, out loud

woo oo woo oo woo oo oo
Track Name: Bad Luck Charm
Baby I’m a bad luck charm
Hanging round your neck when misfortune starts
Maybe we’re just star crossed lovers
Blessed with a curse we’re bound to discover’s a sign

Don’t need you to be mine
If I’m causing you trouble I ain’t worth the struggle dear
It’s a shame
I’m the source of your frustration
A senseless obfuscation of pain

la la oo la la la oo la la oo whoa oh

Blame it on the cards I guess
Cause anything you do I know you do it your best
I’m not trying to force your hand
You bet with good intentions, but it’s not the way you planned it this time

Don’t need you to be mine (one high)
If I’m causing you trouble I ain’t worth the struggle dear
a slow decay
from truce to altercation
infatuation led us astray

la la oo la la la oo la la oo whoa oh

You’re gonna be better off
You’re gonna make it to the top
You’ll see (without me)

I am just a bad luck charm
Getting in your way and now I’m breaking your heart
Maybe there’s no deeper meaning
the dream has long been over, it’s the only thing we’re leaving behind

Don’t need you to be mine
If I’m causing you trouble, nothing’s worth this struggle dear
But it’s okay
I turn in my resignation
Decline my invitation to stay

Don’t want you to be mine
‘Cause I’m causing you trouble, and I ain’t struggle dear
You should know
Time is wasted on regretting
And this is why I’m letting you go
Track Name: Who Could Love
Tired and thankless
No room for the vanquished
The man at the banquet
Says there's plenty of food
Just not for you
There's no point in fighting
I used to play nicely
But damn Aphrodite's got a hold on me

I'm not the person I used to be
No one stays in their infancy
I am leaving my history

Who could love a fool like me?
I'm beat, broke down
I've got nothing to give but mystery
Who could love a fool like me?

I need a new love
I'm kicking the old drugs
To the man up above
Let me go my way
I've got no reason to stay
I'm staring at pages
I'm lost in the spaces
Can’t get what they’re saying
What's that say about me?

I'm not the person I used to be
No one stays in their infancy
I am leaving my history

Who could love a fool like me?
I'm beat, broke down
I've got nothing to give but mystery
Who could love a fool like me?
Track Name: Work It Out
Thinking about yesterday
ringing in my head
all the awful things we said

We went our separate ways.
I hate when we fight
But I know it’s gonna be all right

Sometimes I feel like walking away from it
Sometimes I think that there’s nowhere to go from this
But I believe that love’s what it's all about
we’re gonna work it out
we’re gonna work it out
we’re gonna work it out
we’re gonna work it out
we’re gonna work it

Babe it’s getting late
no matter where this goes
you and I can take it slow

babe i wish i could erase
the times that we fought

Blame it on a twist of fate
We’ve been here before
So don’t go walking out that door
(walk down the road)

Sometimes I think I’ve got nothing to show for it
Sometimes I feel it would be better to call it quits
But I believe that love’s what it's all about
we’re gonna work it out
we’re gonna work it out
we’re gonna work it out
we’re gonna work it out
we’re gonna work it

Sometimes I fear that the best is over
I’m all alone and the night’s getting colder
When I’m alone I wanna cry on your shoulder
It’s all my fault, I’m filling my heart with doubt
we’re gonna work it out
we’re gonna work it out
we’re gonna work it out
we’re gonna work it out
we’re gonna work it out
Track Name: Troubled Mind
I’ve got problems, plenty of worries, weighed with issues doc can’t cure
I tend to sing the blues but lately I feel fine
When you’re with me I forget my troubled mind

I've been rambling round this whole world
Followed footsteps but what for
To the ends of the earth for a sake of a search I'd ride
But When I saw you I knew I finally arrived

Now that I found you, won’t say goodbye
Dark days are over, I’ve seen the light
Had a theory that I would grow weary with nobody at my side
Thanks to you I think I changed my troubled mind

I's a lonely little lover, jaded Jane just a-waitin' in vain
For anything to come along and break the spell of aching apathy
But I made peace, honey you're the one I need

Now that I found you, won’t say goodbye
Dark days are over, I’ve seen the light
Had a theory that I would go weary with nobody at my side

Now that I found you, won’t say goodbye
I couldn’t leave you, don’t wanna try
Happiness may be for fools, but baby I’m the foolish kind
Thanks to you I think I changed my troubled
All the world awaits to be discovered
Thanks to you I think I changed my troubled mind
Track Name: Firewalk
come on fire walk with me
through the forest pine
I’ll keep you company
through the darkest times

the darkest times have yet to come
when we’ll walk side by side
we’ll take the night, light up the sky
oh won’t that be divine

come on fire dance with
hold me in your arms
I’ve been waiting patiently
the calm before the storm

the darkest times have yet to come
hear the horned owl sing
side by side, all through the night
fire walk with me

the darkest times are soon to come
when we will be set free
we’ll take the night, light up the sky
fire walk with me
Track Name: Lonesome Soul
Pity me I’m a lonesome soul
Left my home in Ohio
Just to find a better place to hide
Seemed all my friends were looking to me
To provide a little company
But that’s something I know nothing about

Ain’t it strange, one such as I
I could wander all my life
I’m not alone, I’ve got a home
And it’s out on that open road

Cloud in the breeze I drift along
Arrive at night, leave before dawn
Don’t know where I’m going but I ain’t standing still
Maybe I’ll never be satisfied
Looking at life like a carnival ride
It’s a cheap thrill but I don’t wanna get off

Oooo…
It’s all the same, everywhere I go
Oooo..
Don’t know why I run, forgot what I’m hiding from

Years slipped by but I woke up
A sore in my back and an empty cup
The fire in me turned cold dark ash
Some say I’m a lonesome soul
But I don’t believe everything I’m told
There’s still a lot of world I have yet see
Track Name: The Simple Truth
Where does the time go
Why don't my mind know
I'm better off leaving it alone this time
I had been chasing
A light that is fading
I’m doing what I can to keep my hope alive

I used to believe in a simple truth
Followed the lead, what I'm supposed to do
But now what I need is to listen to me

I can't begin to know everything I thought I knew…

All that I’ve been through
What’s it amount to
if I can’t do it better than I’ve done before
For all that I’m able
Maybe I should be grateful
You have to brace the waves before you reach the shore

I used to believe in a simple truth
Followed the lead, what I'm supposed to do
But now what I need is to listen to me

I can't begin to know everything I thought I knew...
Track Name: Endless Summer
There's a place to escape the constant worry
Where we live outside, the days are kind
And there's no hurry

We talk about it and dream about it
I know it's out there somewhere

Endless summer is a
waiting for me waiting for you
I know happiness lives
In endless summer, endless summer

Imagine we by the sea
beneath the blue moon
I wanna stop but can't get off
don't know what to do

We talk about it and dream about it
I know it's out there somewhere

Endless summer is a
waiting for me waiting for you
I know happiness lives
In endless summer, endless summer

We talk about it and dream about it
I know it's out there somewhere

Endless summer is a
waiting for me waiting for you
I know happiness lives
In endless summer, endless summer
