Track Name: Universe
We'll get things right, we'll get things right
and your universe will expand into mine

we'll get things right, heaven on our side
our stars collide as they intertwine

and I want to know all there is to know
about you
and that is all that I need to know, to know that
all I need, is you

we'll get things right, when time is right
it will stand still, it always will

part of a divine making up for time
'cause I was always yours and you were always mine

I want to know all there is to know
about you
and that is all that I need to know to know that
all I need, is you

'cause I want to know all there is to know
about you
and that is all that I need to know to know that
all I need, is you

and that we'll get things right
we'll get things right
and your universe will expand into mine
Track Name: I'm Not Doing My Best
I'm doing my best to get my head around this
just to get out of bed
it wasn't always such a mess

baby, I'm trying
I'm not doing my best
I am just trying
I'm not doing my best

I see another world on television
while I slowly loose what is left of my inner vision

baby, I'm trying
I'm not doing my best
I am just trying
I'm not doing my best

and sometimes it is harder, and sometimes even harder
I'm just doing my best to get my head around this
sometimes it is harder, and sometimes even harder
I'm just doing my best to get my head around this

It is a very thin line, I guess a matter of time
before a feather on me is all it takes to weigh me down

baby, I'm trying
I'm not doing my best
no I am just trying
I'm not doing my best

and sometimes it is harder, and sometimes even harder
I'm just doing my best to get my head around this
sometimes it is harder, and sometimes even harder
I'm just doing my best to get my head around this

and sometimes it is like this
all of the time
and I know they say to me
that it's only in my mind but

sometimes it is harder, and sometimes even harder
I'm just doing my best to get my head around this
sometimes it is harder, and sometimes even harder
I'm just doing my best to get my head around this
Track Name: Yellowstone
My God, your eyes and the never ending possibilities in them
they really turn me on but if I look at them
for too long will I get back again?

well I did my best to act like someone who knew
how to act around someone like you

I'm so confused 'cause I am not the one easily confused
but when it comes to you two and three makes two
though someone would argue five
you beat logic every single time and I am still looking straight into your eyes

as we walked the canyons
we survived the yellowstone
and right down to the bone we turned the world into our own

my God, your eyes.. if I look at them for too long what will happen then
will I ever get back to this world again?
well I guess that we'll find out sometime
until then let's stay in my mind

as we walked the canyons
we survived the yellowstone
and right down to the bone we turned the world into our own
Track Name: From My Rooftop
From my rooftop I can see you go down
with the city lights that slowly fade out my town

in a room a man of fiftyfive eat his take-out
as the young lovers next to his make out

if you really want to know me
you have to go and see all the things I see
if you really want to see the colours that I see even in a pitch black night
if you really want to know you've got to be next to me
Track Name: I've Got You
I, I've got you
and you, you've got me
at least when I dream, at least in my dreams
and I dream a lot

you said to me "come down by the sea, I will put red roses in my hair
that only you can see, anywhere I go"

you really got me dreaming my days away
into the night
but when the morning sun comes
I'm already blinded by the light

the following morning I went down
to the river as you told me to
but as the evening sun set the notion rose
within me, so obviously, you would never show

you got me thinking, you got me dreaming
way into the night
you really got me, dreaming my days away
when the morning sun comes
I'm already blinded by the light
Track Name: Five Years Went Fast
Maybe I did a left
where I should have done right
perhaps it was a theft
and we should have stood the fight

I built a fence to protect me from hell
but I built so high, it went up to heaven as well
and all I can tell from

this is that I don't know
I don't know, no I don't know

why we all went away
with such a haste that we left no time
for saying goodbye

we took different turns
and five years went fast
and with a feeling that burns
we've got more than the past
shouldn't it last, well

all that I can tell
from this
is
that I don't know, no I don't know

honestly, I don't know..
honestly, I don't know..
honestly, I don't know anymore..

shouldn't it last, well

all that I can tell
from this
is
that I don't know, no I don't know
Track Name: Sweet Juliette
I love the sound of your voice
I love when you're around
you leave me no choice..
and such a delight when your eyes, they come into my darkness
and they shine with the brightest light

you, my sweet Juliette
could you ever know
how much I love you but I won't get you

the irony in this
you see, I'm not me without the things I miss
and what I've become and things I have done
they would become undone, if I had always won but

you, my sweet Juliette
could you ever know
how much I love you but I won't get you

aren't you just like heaven to me
some place I hope someday I will see
aren't you like an angel to me now
someone I hope someday I will find
aren't you just like everybody else

my sweet Juliette
if you'd you ever know
how much I love you but I won't get you
you, my sweet Juliette
but I won't get you
Track Name: A Foolish Love for a Foolish Heart
I waited all, I waited all
I waited all, I waited all year
just to get me where I'm at
and I know what they'll say to me
"it's just a dream, you really should move on!"
that I've been doing this for too long

I know this, I know all this
though I know this I linger with your kiss
and everything you've touched
stays with my reality
and this increasing insanity of mine
that I'm the only one for you
and you're the one for me..

it's a
foolish love
for a foolish heart

If I'd be yours and you'd be mine, but
you're in my mind, you're in another time
it is so bitter, it is so sweet
and we could never, ever be
anything else than in perfect symmetry

'cause in my mind there's all the time
that we could really ever need
it is a truly
bitter sweet harmony
this you, and this me that

stays in my reality
and this increasing insanity of mine
that I'm the only one for you and you're the one for me

it's a
foolish love
for a foolish heart

you are everywhere
you are the clothes I wear
you're my dream, my daily dream baby
will not shake this or brake this or try to awake from this

I waited all and did my best
to make sense what to make out of this mess
just to get me where I'm at
and I know what they say to me
"it's just a dream, you really should move on"
that I've been doing this for so long
that I've been doing this for so long
that I've been doing this for so long
Track Name: Not Thinking of You
I am not thinking of you
I'm thinking how to not think of you
Just tell me how I should get through
without ever start to think of you

tell me how to get around
through the core of this underground
this is something I would love to find out on my own

tell me how I should find out
from my own tangled mind
and how to get you
out from my own tangled blue

I am not thinking of you
I'm thinking how to not think of you
Just tell me how I should get through
without ever start to think of you

tell me how to get around
through the core of this underground
this is something I would love to find out on my own

tell me how I should find out
from my own tangled mind
and how to get you
out from my own tangled blue

'cause I am not thinking of you
I'm thinking how to not think of you
so tell me how I should get through
without ever start to think of you
Track Name: Sweet Angel
Oh sweet angel
my sweet angel
sleep my baby
you'll meet just maybe..

you really need your sleep

my sweet angel
drown your sorrow
let tommorrow
slowly, slowly

take you home
you're not alone
