Track Name: Glad to See You
I'm really glad you made it out.
I was starting to have my doubts.
It's good to see you once again.
It's always nice to see an old friend.

And I know it's been a while
but I'm GLAD TO SEE YOU.
A couple years, a thousand miles...
Well, I'm GLAD TO SEE YOU.

It's good to see you in real life
in stead of memories or moving lights on a screen.
I'm glad to see you still exist.
You don't know how much you were missed.

There's water underneath the bridge
but I'm GLAD TO SEE YOU,
A couple bottles in the fridge
'cause I'm GLAD TOO SEE YOU.

"For Old Time's Sake," you say...
For crying out loud!
THESE are the Good 'Ol Days right here.

"For Old Time's Sake?!"
For crying out loud!
These are the Good 'Ol Days right here.

Right here. Right now.
Track Name: Moonglow (So Lovely)
The last blooms of the season are repressed
the Winter's breath makes them nervous
and it seems we dream together
while I try to coax the night out of the sky.

You have hypnotized me
and I am only at your mercy,
MOONGLOW, so lovely...

Night is full of only dreamers...
Your Magic will not work on me this time.
I thought so when I was still young inside
I never felt the Sun reflect upon you
quite the way that I do now

Now that you have hypnotized me
and I am only at your mercy,
MOONGLOW, so lovely...
Track Name: Storms Brewing
Black clouds, rolling in like waves
take over the sky
The winds blowing trees around
People all run inside
because a storm is brewing
and I don't know
what I'm still doing here.

Could have saved me years ago
Could have saved me now.
A cold wind slaps you in the face
It's too late anyhow
a storm is brewing
and I don't know
what I'm still doing here.

Getting way too quiet now
Think you've gone too far.
It starts with just a crack
before the whole thing falls apart
A storm is brewing
and I don't know
what I'm still doing here.
Track Name: Tourist
You don't remember me, do you?
Don't lie to me. I can see right through you.
I am just a tourist in your life.
I am only a tourist in your life after all.

Of course you wouldn't recognize me, would you?
I never gave you anything
but company.
Why am I even talking to you
when I am just a tourist in your life?
I am only a tourist in your life after all.

It's not too late
to walk away.
It's not too late
to run.
And I'm offended
your not embarrassed.
Must think I'm no one
Maybe you're right.

I am only a tourist in your life.

You don't remember me, do you?
Track Name: Off the Wagon
Well, Ive been here for many years
Through the blood and shame and tears
And I have felt the same
and even worse.

Wine & Women, Song-and-dancin'
and anything I could get my hands on
I knew I was to blame
for my own curse

When I fell off of the wagon into your arms
I fell OFF THE WAGON into your arms
I fell OFF THE WAGON into your arms
and now you want to put me back again.

What are you about to do?
After all you put me through
just what are you about to do to me?

And she said: "After all the time I gave you,
just shut up and let me save you.
I will tell you how it's going to be!"

"Oh, but Honey, I fell off of the wagon into your arms..."
I fell OFF THE WAGON into your arms
I fell OFF THE WAGON into your arms
Now you refuse to pick me up again.

What are you about to do?
What is it you're trying to prove?
And, tell me, who is it you want to prove it to?

Because I was pleading and bleeding and begging
and I did not have a leg to stand on
when I dove off the wagon into you

Yes I fell off of the wagon into your arms.
I fell OFF THE WAGON into your arms
I fell OFF THE WAGON into your arms
and now you want to put me back again.
Now you refuse to pick me up again.
And now you want to put me back
and now you want to put me back
and now you want to put me back again.
Track Name: Eye of the Storm
I saw you last night through the eye of a storm.
I looked through the window, you were not alone.
I tried to imagine it's not what it looks like.
Opened the door and discovered I was right
all along
I saw you last night through the eye of a storm.

I saw you last night through the eye of a storm.
The man I was, you thought you once knew, is gone.
This could be prevented. I wish I was warned.
But whose fault is that, anyway?
Didn't have to end this way.
I saw you last night through the eye of a storm.

I saw you last night through the eye of a storm.
Your heartbeat was pounding, you clothes were all torn.
And I am a hurricane, so unpredictable
The only thing you can now count on is trouble.
...
I saw you las night through the eye of a storm.
Track Name: Don't Know Anything
Let them storm right through the walls
Let them come up through the floor
Let them tear apart the room
They cannot get you anymore.

And you're sure to be a Saint.
I'm sure to be at Pace.
Fools can try to own the world,
One day we all will be released.

I can howl at the Moon.
I can travel in my mind.
I can see you in the Sun
even when they take my eyes.

They can be my living's end
They can capture all my friends...
I don't even know they will.
You don't really know anything, do you?
Track Name: Have a Little Butter
Have your cake and eat it too
Have a couple hours, see what we can do
Nothing in the cupboard, nothing on the shelf
Have a little butter with your bread as well

HAVE A LITTLE BUTTER
HAVE A LITTLE BUTTER
HAVE A LITTLE BUTTER with your bread as well.

I really didn't mean to be arriving late
She exploded on me like a jailbreak.
You only get one chance, as far as I can tell
Have a little butter with your bread as well.

HAVE A LITTLE BUTTER
HAVE A LITTLE BUTTER
HAVE A LITTLE BUTTER with your bread as well.

"If Music be the food of Love, play on..."
A man's gotta eat, even when you're gone.
I'm not going to get cooking by myself
Have a little butter with your bread as well.

HAVE A LITTLE BUTTER
HAVE A LITTLE BUTTER
HAVE A LITTLE BUTTER with your bread as well.

HAVE A LITTLE BUTTER
HAVE A LITTLE BUTTER
HAVE A LITTLE BUTTER with your bread as well.
Track Name: Make Me Wrong
At my window, late at night
Something isn't sitting right.
What it could be, I suppose,
Loneliness within me grows.
I lost it all, but won the fight.

Now I'm right but I'm alone
- Want to be wrong, MAKE ME WRONG -
- Want to be wrong, MAKE ME WRONG -
I know I'm right, but so alone
- Want to be wrong, MAKE ME WRONG -
- Want to be wrong, MAKE ME WRONG -
Stay with me. Make me wrong.

I want to be wrong...
- These eyes are so blue -
If I could belong...
- From looking at you too long. -

Scuffling and shuffling and suffering...
- Succotash! -
Wandering and wondering what might have been...
Want so bad not to feel so bad,
Want so bad not to feel...
When it is revealed

that I'm right, but I'm alone
- Want to be wrong, MAKE ME WRONG -
- Want to be wrong, MAKE ME WRONG -
I know I'm right, but so alone
- Want to be wrong, MAKE ME WRONG -
- Want to be wrong, MAKE ME WRONG -
Come back to me. Prove me wrong.

I want to be wrong...
- These eyes are so blue -
If I could belong...
- From looking at you too long. -

I want to be wrong...
- These eyes are so blue -
If I could belong...
- From looking at you too long. -
Track Name: the Magic is Over
Now that the party is over no one is around.
We're sweeping up confetti and pulling streamers down.
Wanted to go out with a bang, but you leave without a sound
now that the MAGIC IS OVER.

It's been seven years of tug-of-war, it's time we both let go.
You won't be trying to change me. I won't hold you back anymore.
It's time we put the light out, call it a night and close the door
now that the MAGIC IS OVER.

No more waiting and hoping.
It's all out in the open.
We need to take some time.

And now that the Magic is over we can try it out as friends.
Not answering to anyone, I can be myself again.
What we had was beautiful, but this is where it ends
now that the MAGIC IS OVER.
What we had was beautiful, but this is where it ends
now that the MAGIC IS OVER.
Now the Magic is over.
