Track Name: Are You Happy Now?
Fluffy kittens, bright yellow mittens
Puppies in the window with snow falling down
Ice cream on Saturday, the face of Doris Day
Ellen dancing wearing beige or brown

Volkswagen Bugs,
One of Oprah's never-ending hugs
People playing Twister, Bean and Rogers Mister

Are You Happy Now?
Are You Happy Now?

Photos in yearbooks, Darwin's bumbling crooks
Firecrackers on the 4th of July
Clowns throwing candy, Danny & Sandy
Summer Lovin' before he made her cry

Volkswagen Bugs,
One of Oprah's never-ending hugs
People playing Twister, Bean and Rogers Mister

It’s you that we appreciate
We’re tired of your frown,
Turn it upside down!

Track Name: She Only Likes Talking To Me (When I'm So Far Away)
She only likes talking to me when I’m so far away
She only likes talking to me when I’m so far away
A different time zone, a long time till I’ll be home
It’s cold and dark, sitting here all alone
Do me a favour pick up the telephone
She only likes talking to me when I’m so far away

You say you love talking to me when you’re so far away
Words are rolling off your tongue there’s always something to say
Making plans, feel like we’re holding hands
Shifting sands, someone that understands
Plans deferred, rumours I’ve overheard
She only likes talking to me when I’m so far away

It could be beautiful, so beautiful
What do you say?

She only likes talking to me when she’s so far away
Track Name: Waiting, Hoping, Listening
Waiting, Hoping, Listening
Waiting, Hoping, Listening

With you I want to go,
To a picture show
Are you ready?

Waiting, Hoping, Listening
Waiting, Hoping, Listening

With you I want to go
To a picture show
Sure would like to know
Where did everybody go?

Waiting, Hoping, Listening
Track Name: A Child's Point Of View
Some things confuse me
A lot I don’t understand
Other things amuse me
They both go hand in hand
We learned a long time ago
Not to cross the fine line
But the lessons we learned and the stories we told
Have faded over time

When will the sun come up?
Why is it dark out here?
How high is the sky?
And what makes a river flow?
What would it be like to live your life from a
child’s point of view?
Every day is bright and new
From a child’s point of view

The kids are getting older
I guess we all are too
You see their innocence slipping away
They don’t have to believe what they’re telling you
We learned a long time ago
Not to cross the fine line
But the lessons we learned and the stories we told
Have faded over time
Track Name: Keep Calm
Beneath the endless sky
It was only you and I
The rain began to fall
Staring straight ahead
At mountains made of red
Etched by time and sun

Where did it go wrong?
Could never get along
Keep calm and carry on
Something’s got to give
There’s a better way to live
Keep calm and carry on

Innocence was lost
Still adding up the cost
Freedom has a price
A love that was so pure
Now we’re looking for a cure
A cure that can’t be found
Track Name: Sirens On Kingsway
Sirens on Kingsway they’re ringing so loud
Sirens on Kingsway they’re ringing so loud
But you’re beside me sleeping so sound
Sirens on Kingsway they’re ringing so loud

Sirens on Kingsway they’re ringing so loud
Sirens on Kingsway they’re ringing so loud
Down at the Biltmore could be lost in the crowd
Siren’s on Kingsway they’re ringing so loud

So happy, they’re not coming this way
So happy, I can live another day

Siren’s on Kingsway they’re ringing so loud
Track Name: Because You Could
Where were you when the sun was high?
Sleeping late because you could
You took me to the river but the river was dry
I couldn’t stay I thought I would die
Nothing left but dust and sand
It wasn’t nice, and it wasn’t good

Because you could

Where were you when the moon was high?
Leaving town, like I knew you would
Did you hear when the shots were fired?
I should have left early, man I was tired
It wasn’t good
Maybe it was me who misunderstood
That because you could, you actually would

Because you could
Track Name: Too Blind To See
Out of the warmth and into the night
September breeze has got a hold of the trees
Nothing in particular weighing on my mind
As the sky opens up

Alone in the darkness, soaked to the skin
Time for reflection, where to begin?

Too blind to see
Too blind to see

Got to keep moving, can’t stand still
Everything’s distorted and it’s testing my will
So many questions, so little time
So little time

Alone in the darkness, soaked to the skin
Time for reflection, where to begin?

Too blind to see
Too blind to see
Track Name: Watch Your Garden Grow
I’m going to watch your garden grow
I’m going to watch your garden grow
And there is something you should know
I’m going to watch your garden grow

Old man sitting by the side of the road
I’m going to stop and talk awhile
He says I know exactly what you’ve done
Picked me up and threw me straight into the sun

I’m going to watch your garden grow
I’m going to watch your garden grow
And there is something you should know
I’m going to watch your garden grow

Old man still sitting by the side of the road
Think I’ll stop and talk awhile
I said I know exactly what you’ve done
Picked him up and threw him straight into the sun
