Track Name: Hardly Spoken
But we've hardly spoken,
you barely opened the door
Caught a glimpse of perfection,
an idea from a dream before

ooh, too many times
ooh, too many times

It's total destruction
careful balance all on the floor
can I trust this emotion
will it even out the score

'cause I've given it up, given it up
Too Many TImes
'cause I've given it up, given it up
Too Many TImes
giving it up

Don't give up , don't give in
get out of my head it's the only way out
I know you real well
give someone the right to see
the right to hold on
the right to complain
I hear them echoing
don't bring me down
Just get me out

Giving it up, giving it up
Cause I've given it up, given it up
too many times
Cause I've given it up, given it up
too many times
But we've hardly spoken
Track Name: Recharge
Recharge.
It's a recharge, just a fresh start
It's a recharge, just a fresh start
Just a fresh start

Recharge yourself tonight
why don't you move a little closer
recharge yourself tonight
why don't we move a little closer

Just a fresh start

It's a recharge, just a fresh start
it's a recharge, just a fresh start
just a fresh start

Recharge, why don't you move a little closer
Recharge, why don't we move a little closer

Recharge, just a fresh start
Recharge

recharge, why don't you just sleep over
recharge, why don't you just sleep over
recharge
Track Name: Caught Up To You
How did she know what's going on in my head?
what did she mean by those words?
is it all right because of the fight
or is it in all of us?
You play with my emotions like it's a joke that I care
but me without my senses there's nobody there.

Caught Up, Caught up, Caught Up to You
Caught Up, Caught up, Caught Up to You

What if I don't want to run in your race
I've got my eye on the bigger picture
Are you ready for that pace
To copy's the way, does that make it ok
here's hoping original wins the day
here's hoping original wins the day
here's hoping
here's hoping

Caught Up, Caught Up to You
Caught Up, Caught Up to You
Caught Up, Caught Up to You

Caught Up, Caught up, Caught Up to You
Caught Up, Caught up, Caught Up to You

It's just the way we are
It's just the way we are
It's just the way we are
Track Name: California '15
California, what the hell happened to ya?
you were once part of my own golden dream

Long drive from a pink motel
hugged the coast in a car we bought to sell
midday heat shimmers and blurs
where the road and the sky and the distance merge

And I think of the time
you were a state of mind
I still think of the times

California, what the hell happened to ya
You were once part of my own golden dream
California, you were once part of my gold dream

Lying on the bed I remember it all
too hot to sleep got some ice down the hall
drank beer as we sang along to the radio
the radio

And I think of the times you were a state of mind
Snow globe and a Hollywood sign

California, what the hell happened to ya
You were once part of my own golden dream
California, you were once part of my gold dream

Gold dream.... ( and I think of the times, you were a state of mind).

My turn at the wheel through Monteray
stop for gas, a photograph, headed for LA
as all the views rush by Palm trees push up through the sky
Palm trees push up through the sky

California
You were once part of my gold dream
California
You were once part of my old dream
California
You were once part of my gold dream
California
We were once part of the same dream
Track Name: Smoke and Choke (Wonderbro remix)
Well you smoke and you choke on the air
And we laugh as you say you don't care
'Cause we smile as you play with your hair
'Cause you're doing your best

And the car that you park in the drive
and the job the that you need to survive
and the friends that you've come to rely on
but you're doing your best

Well the dirt in your hair and your eyes
and the sweat on your back and your thighs
in the way you tell truth from the lies
'cause you're doing your best

And this world that you hold in your mind
on whose back will your pyramids rise
by whose god will your fortunes divide
'cause you're doing your best

Everybody's trying to do the right thing
but maybe we could do it better
instead of trying to figure it out on your own
we should put our heads together.

Well you smoke and you choke on the air
And we laugh as you say you don't care
'Cause we smile as you play with your hair
'Cause you're doing your best

Track Name: Best Tonight
The odds are long but we'll still make it
set a record and then we'll break it

we booked a flight and then we'll take it
Australian nights, and getting naked.

Short on money, but long on soul
what we found funny was all that we could not control

So we'll travel the world and visit our friends
we're putting our dreams together again
'cause nothin' makes me happier than music
let's be the best tonight.
Don't be so hard, you've already made it.
made it...

So we'll travel the world and visit our friends
we're putting our dreams together again
'cause nothin' makes me happier than music
we'll be the best tonight.

Don't be so hard you've already made it
(feel so fine, and it's alright, we'll make the best, the best tonight)
It's not that far, we've already made it
(feel so fine, and it's alright, we'll make the best, the best tonight)
Don't be so hard you've already made it
(feel so fine, and it's alright, we'll make the best, the best tonight)
It's not that far, we've already made it
(feel so fine, and it's alright, we'll make the best, the best tonight)
Track Name: Stop Givin Up On Love
I see you questioning, just why am I still here
it's not as if it's been much fun for a while now

and even the sunshine is failing to appear
to lift that gloom across your shoulders

and if I feel the weight of all you must endue
I somehow know it makes me stronger

and that tiny spark that lives so deep inside your heart
well we all should make it bolder

Well the world's not spinning faster
a hundred years for us to master
Stop givin up on love
yeah the world's not spinning faster
a thousand years for us to master
stop givin up on love

It's been a year or two since the last time we saw you
now computer screens seem to be the best we can do

I hear you telling me about your broken history
and you know I wish we could be closer to you

'cause you're looking back at all that coulda shoulda been
and feeling tired from misadventures

and the tiny spark that lives so deep inside your heart
it's calling out for a new answer

Well the world's not spinning faster
a hundred years for us to master
Stop givin up on love
yeah the world's not spinning faster
a thousand years for us to master
stop givin up on love
yeah the world's not spinning faster
a million years for us to master
stop givin up on love
well the world's not spinning faster
a billion years before we pass her
stop givin up on love
Stop givin up on Love

You don't have to fall apart chasing all you dreams
(stop givin up on love)
You don't have to fall apart it's closer than it seems
(stop givin up on love)
Track Name: Real Life Turns Me On
Robotic, hypnotic, symphonic, tectonic,
Track Name: It's Still On (Paul Schroeder Remix)
Waking up, still tired
feeling down, uninspired
draining out, the hard work washed away
Giving up, so heartbroken
all the dreams, left unspoken
see them smile as we become the same

Don't be scared of what you're seeing
just realize there's more to being
than what you buy or steal or break
it's how you live and what you make
I think it's time to disagree
with what we've learned for centuries
'cause never in our history
have we been more in debt to greed.

Waiting for a wave to break
riding on the chance you take
for a better way, someday
might not be that far away

It's ok, we made it through today
we'll beg or steal or borrow
to make it through tomorrow
Hope's not gone, it's still on
you may be out of favour
but you could be your savair

it's ok.
