Track Name: Baby, Why'd You Love Me?
Baby, why'd you love me? Baby why do you care?
See, I ain't never loved nobody, lovers should beware.
Baby why do you love me? Baby why do you say
That you ain't never loved nobody, the way that you do love me?

Well I say.. (instrumental)

Baby why do you trust me? Why do you believe?
Most things I be saying' roll right off my sleeve.
Baby why do you call me up, and say you're missing me?
I don't intent to keep in touch, I just want to be free

And I say No, let it go. Let me go. You got to let go.

Lord why do you tell me, Lord why do you say,
Just call on your name, to take my pain away?
Lord why should I listen? and Lord why should I pray?
See you aint showing me a damn thing, and I been praying all G** damn day

Well I say No, let it go. I say no, you got to let go.
And I say No, let it go, let me go, you got to let go.

Let go!
Here we are, here we are, here we are again.

No no no.
Track Name: San Francisco
Summer sea, Ocean Beach, listening to motown with the top down
never shade only rays, yeah you can’t find that kinda sunshine
and oh, maybe she loves you maybe she don’t
and oh, maybe she loves you

C
Ive been chipping away, countin the days till I get to San Fransisco
and Im heading down to coast, meeting up with the most beautiful girl
and I aint never gonna let go

what a kiss how i miss, lines of her suntan ass on the warm sand
bright blue eyes, bright blue skies, just a free man, with no plans
and oh, maybe she loved me, maybe she don’t
and oh, maybe she loves you

Ive been chipping away, countin the days till I get to San Fransisco
and Im heading down to coast, meeting up with the most beautiful girl
and I aint never gonna let go

C

Oh, I won’t let her go.
No I’m never gonna let gonna let let her go.

C
Track Name: The Tide
Tender age of only 17, leaves his home, whats left of his family
unequipped for fortune unknown, he hopes that he can make it on his own.

Older now and still misunderstood, given a second chance he knows he would,
turn back time and welcome loving arms, of mother sweet keeping him from harm

C- He tells me "Come to your senses, hold up your head, tear down and bury your fences, remember the tide is rushing in." You must remember, you must remember.

V2- "you will need not know more than this." he says. "take what you can get or you’ll miss out on what this life has in store. That or be blind to what’s worth living for."

C

Bridge- "and oh, when you find what you're looking for, hold on tight and don't you let it go. The hands of time will always want it more than you do, so you have to"

C
Track Name: Compose Me (ft. Lisa Morales)
All day all night, spent thinking of,
that last goodbye and why it wasn’t quite enough
and what do I need, to do to show
you that I’ve never seen something like you before

Won’t you compose me? tell me where to go tonight tonight tonight
Baby won’t you show me, show me how to hold you right you right, you right, all right now

2000 years, that mankind spent learning ins and outs and ups and downs and signs
of life are al- ways hard to find, what luck that I oh I am reading yours just fine.

C

Show me, tell me, show me tell you’ve got to
show and tell

C
Track Name: Telling Time
V1
Everyone says, that I need to say
how I really feel, that it’s the only way
But I’m leaving you, yes Im leaving you
Oh and right now, I don’t know just what good it will do

Chorus
Cause its telling time
And you know that you’ll always be on my mind, girl I tell you the truth
If not for you, there wouldn’t be a me
But you’ll be just fine, you'll be just fine, you'll be just fine

V2
Everyone says, dare to dream
Oh but to them, your dreams don’t mean a thing
I know you, and you got to help me to
Oh to convince you that it’s not make-believe

C

Bridge
Don’t let your colors fall, don’t you let them fall
