Track Name: I Will Disappoint You
Recorded at Tangeled Wire Studio, Seattle, WA
Track Name: Heart of Stone
Heart of Stone

Sometimes you've got to be crazy
just to make it through the day
doesn't matter to me no, no
We're all crazy anyway

I saw you on the weekend
You had your party face on
But it's so transparent, yes it is.
You ain't fooling anyone

And I saw you yesterday
you turned your head and looked away
chip away your heart of stone
'cause the night is cold when you're alone

I know it ain't easy
I get by any way I can
you don't have to run away from me, no, no.
Give me a chance to understand

And I saw you yesterday
you turned your head and looked away
chip away your heart of stone
'cause the night is cold when you're alone

It must be so damn lonesome
when you can't be who you are
pretending it doesn't matter
Ain't gonna get you very far

And I saw you yesterday
you turned your head and looked away
chip away your heart of stone
'cause the night is cold when you're alone
Track Name: Sideways
SIDEWAYS


I'm falling sideways
I'm falling sideways
And I know so are you
Said you know it's true,
You know it's true
I'm falling sideways
So are you

I'm stuck in quicksand
I'm stuck in quicksand
And I know, so are you
Said you know it's true
You know it's true
I'm stuck in quicksand
So are you

I'm going nowhere
I'm going nowhere
And I know so are you
Said you know it's true
You know it's true
I'm going nowhere
So are you

I'm falling sideways
I'm falling sideways
And I know, so are you
So are you
Track Name: Makes No Sense To Me
Makes No Sense to Me


Sunlight, go away
leave me alone,
I can't bear to see you today
I'm just drowning here
in my memories
Everything I thought I knew
Now makes no sense to me
Makes no sense to me

And I got nothing
But time on my hands
to wallow in the darkness
and the ruins of all my plans
and it makes me crazy
something so obvious I can't see
Still I'm trying to understand
But it makes no sense to me
Makes no sense to me

Break:

And I got nothing
but hands on my time
and it's got me wondering
How I could have been so blind
and I might be crazy
or maybe I'm finally free
no matter how hard I try
it makes no sense to me
Makes no sense to me
Track Name: Naked
Naked


I see you nearly every night
an abstract portrait lit by bedroom light
From my little box just across the way
with facing windows and open shades

It's Friday night and we're both alone
The city's calling, but we're stuck at home
But you're a beacon of hope for my despair
while you vacuum the floor in your underwear

And there's something I hope that you will do
Respectfully I ask this of you
I just want to see you naked
I just want to see you naked


I'll do you no harm, do you know harm
Just need a little help riding out the storm
Show me some time, show me sometime
Just a little peek, if you don't mind


Let me see you naked
I just want to see you naked
Track Name: Azure Blue
Azure Blue

I was blinded by the night
and the sight of azure blue
when the feeling grabbed a hold of me
there was nothing I could do

and the misty air grew colder
while the fog danced with the ground
everything I thought was lost
now was found

on the sweet side of the evening
I will lay my body down
Let the chilly night soothe my skin
and spin my head around

let me soak inside your goodness
may this feeling never end
and it's all because of you
azure blue

when you whisper in the silence
all my troubles float away
the starry night, above us sings
a celestial serenade

your open arms, they beckon me
and pull me to your warmth
to be a part of you, azure blue
azure blue

though time has passed, the image lasts
my memories will not fade
I still feel the bite of that night
in ways I can't explain

And if you're wondering what it's all about
just remember it's for you
only for you
azure blue
Track Name: Beverly Drive
Beverly Drive

I used to go down on Beverly Drive
For the easiest girl, you could ever find
She was the queen of the right side of town
She’d lift your spirits, when they- were down

She played around with all the boys
Her amusing games, her human toys
They lined up every night to see her
They’d make her smile, but they just couldn’t free her

When you went down on Beverly Drive
You could see the heartache in her eyes
The tears she shed, you knew were real
But nobody cared; tears weren’t part of the deal

I used to see her walking around town
With a hollow smile or her eyes to the ground
She ran away from the pain inside her
I knew some day the truth would find her

Whatever happened to Beverly Drive?
They said she left one cold July
On lonely nights, I can hear the boys cry
No more Beverly Drive
No more Beverly Drive
Track Name: Water Water
WATER WATER

Water water everywhere
But not a drop for me
Everything I need is here
Just beyond my reach

All the faces that I see
Pass me by on the sullen street
A parting glance
A knowing stare
Deep in the water
Water everywhere

In my past blind despair
Water water everywhere
I bailed and bailed and still it flowed
It got me wet, but I didn’t know

Then I surrendered myself
And I dove right in
In the soothing pool
So began my swim
I found an answer to my prayers
Deep in the water
Water everywhere

But that was then,
This is now
A different year
Another drought

I keep on searching cause I know it’s there
Deep in the water
Water everywhere

Water water everywhere
But not a drop for me
Everything I need is here
Just beyond my reach
Track Name: Chip Away
CHIP AWAY

Sometimes you have to be crazy
Just to make it through the day
Doesn’t matter to me, no
We’re all crazy anyway
Chip away your heart of stone…

I saw you on the weekend
You had your party face on.
It’s so transparent
You ain’t fooling anyone
Chip away your heart of stone

It must be so damn lonesome
When you can’t be who you are
Pretending it doesn’t matter
Won’t get you very far.
Chip away your heart of stone

Chip away your heart of stone
