Track Name: All My Friends (Lindi Ortega cover)
My friend Mary Jane, she will come and ease the pain
Every time I feel the lonely lows
Then there's good ol' Jack, who would always have my back
We stayed up until the rooster crows
Yeah we stayed up until the rooster crows

Make me sane, make it easy
Silence all these voices in my head
Make me sane, cause I am crazy
and all my friends are gonna kill me dead

Cigarettes and wine, are both comrades of mine
together we will burn and we will drown
and I will sleep all night, flirting with suicide
its just my friend the pill that puts me down
its just my friend the pill that puts me down

Make me sane, make it easy
Silence all these voices in my head
Make me sane, cause I am crazy
and all my friends are gonna kill me dead
yeah all my friends, are gonna kill me dead

Make me sane, make it easy
Silence all these voices in my head
Make me sane, cause i am crazy
and all my friends are gonna kill me dead
yeah all my friends are gonna kill me
dead dead dead
yeah all my friends are gonna kill me dead.
Track Name: April
I can’t see the sun shine no more
Them beams ain’t what they seem, oh no
I don’t need those beams on my floor
Through my window or knocking on my door

I’d rather, rather drown in rain
Than get burnt all over again
I prefer this flow of life, I think
So let me float or make me even sink

Hey you rain, bring it on
Oh come on, you giant storm
Blow me away, blow me away
Oh dear rain, just make my day

Enough with the warmth, okay
You cannot thaw me this way
I’m cold, unwelcome, like rain
In war with the sun every day

Hey you rain, bring it on
Oh come on, you giant storm
Blow me away, blow me away
Oh dear rain, just make my day

Hey you rain, bring it on
Oh come on, you giant storm
Blow me away, blow me away
Oh dear rain, just make my day

Hey you rain, bring it on
Oh come on, you giant storm
Blow me away, blow me away
Oh dear rain, just make my day
Track Name: Passenger
I go by train
Every day
Always the same
But today
I saw a man
Reading a book
He was smiling
I wondered why

It must be funny
That story
He looks happy
To me
But the other day I saw him again
He wasn’t smiling
I wonder what happened

Who’s the person behind this passenger
A lot of stories in his eyes
Just sitting there
Staring blank ahead
Where’s he going every day

It’s so strange, I don’t know him
He’s interesting every time I see him
I don’t know where he’s going or where he’s from
But we go the same way every day

Who’s the person behind this passenger
A lot of stories in his eyes
Just sitting there
Staring blank ahead
Where’s he going every day
He’s just another passenger
Going his own way

Oh oh oh…

Who’s the person behind this passenger
A lot of stories in his eyes
Just sitting there
Staring blank ahead
Where’s he going every day
Who’s the person behind this passenger
A lot of stories in his eyes
Just sitting there
Staring blank ahead
Where’s he going every day
He’s just another passenger
Going his own way
Track Name: Little Lie (Lindi Ortega cover)
I told a little lie or two when I spoke to you on the phone the other night.
What's a girl supposed to do when the bitter truth turns into a sweeter lie.

I didn't want to tell you, tell you. Didn't want to tell you anything you didn't want to hear.
Look a little closer then the truth becomes clear.

I told a little lie or three when you looked at me and asked if I love you still.
You don't want to know what's real, how I really feel, never did and you never will. No, no, no.

I didn't want to tell you, tell you. Didn't want to tell you anything you didn't want to hear.
Look a little closer then the truth becomes clear.

I told a little lie or four, with you at my door, wondering where the hell I've been.

I didn't want to tell you, tell you. Didn't want to tell you anything you didn't want to hear.
I didn't want to tell you, tell you. Didn't want to tell you anything you didn't want to hear.
Look a little closer then the truth.
Look a little closer then the truth.
Look a little closer then the truth becomes clear.
Track Name: Thanks For All
Remember that time when you left me waiting there
I stood there wasting my time
I didn’t know that you just didn’t care
I thought we were just fine

It’s so strange you tried to comfort me
You said it’s gonna be okay
How’s it okay if you don’t love me
You talk nonsense honey, No it’s not okay

Thanks for all the tears
You made me cry
It’s you who’s made me stronger
‘cause you never said goodbye, Thanks for all the tears

I’ve tried to reach you but you seem too far away
‘cause you’re not mine anymore
You’ve gone elsewhere outside my heart babe
I’ve finally shut down that door, You’re not welcome anymore

Thanks for all the tears
You made me cry
It’s you who’s made me stronger
‘cause you never said goodbye, Thanks for all the tears

I’ve tried to reach you but you seem too far away
‘cause you’re not mine anymore
You’ve gone elsewhere outside my heart babe
I’ve finally shut down that door, You’re not welcome anymore

Thanks for all the tears
You made me cry
It’s you who’s made me stronger
‘cause you never said goodbye, Thanks for all the tears

Thanks for all the tears
You made me cry
It’s you who’s made me stronger
‘cause you never said goodbye, Thanks for all the tears
Track Name: Little Boy In The Window
You weep when your favorite toy is broken
and when your mommy denies you candy
If only I could worry ‘bout such things
Oh but I have others, way too many

You’re so innocent, I envy that
If you are all grown up, you’d be laughed at
You can soil yourself and climb a tree
You still are mommy’s little sweetie

Little boy in the window
I feel sorry for you
As your life fades to deep blue
Little boy, stay in your window

You don’t have a clue how lucky you are
And somehow misery still seems so far
When things start going so wrong, so wrong
Then you might understand this song

Little boy in the window
I feel sorry for you
As your life fades to deep blue
Little boy, stay in your window

Little boy in the window
I feel sorry for you
As your life fades to deep blue
Little boy, stay in your window

Mommy, have you seen my Teddy bear?
I just cannot find it anywhere
Don’t you swear at daddy every day
Mommy, please stop crying, come and play
Track Name: Reaching Out
Don’t reach out your hand
I know you’ll let me fall
I don’t want your hand
And the rest of you at all

So don’t reach out your hand
Because I don’t want to fall
No, I don’t want your hand
And the rest of you at all

Hands full of strength
Oh that’s just what I need
I need some strong hands
To hold me when I weep

So hands full of strength
Please, come to me
Oh, dear hands
Please, find me

I tighten my grip
And do all that I can
But then I slip
And clench my empty hands

My empty hands
Turn into fists
Because I’m so angry
At the strong hands I miss

Hands full of strength
Oh that’s just what I need
I need some strong hands
To hold me when I weep

So hands full of strength
Please, come to me
Oh, dear hands
Please, find me

Is there anyone
strong enough
To hold onto me
Is there anyone
patient enough
to love me

Hands full of strength
Oh that’s just what I need
I need some strong hands
To hold me when I weep

So hands full of strength
Please, come to me
Oh, dear hands
Please, find...

Hands full of strength
Oh that’s just what I need
I need some strong hands
To hold me when I weep

So hands full of strength
Please, come to me
Oh, dear hands
Please, hold me
Track Name: Those Empty Eyes
You said "I wanna break up
'cuz you're not my kinda thing"
I said "Sorry, excuse me, what did you say?"

I am a person, I ain't no thing
Thanks for being nice to me
No you're not my kinda thing either, anymore

I looked at you in disbelief
I didn't wanna hear those words
I was gonna ask you not to leave, oh!

Where's that love in your eyes
All that love for me
Dear, what happened to your eyes
Why do you give me those empty eyes

Living life without you is even worse
than making you stay with me
making you unhappy, 'cuz you don't love me anymore

Oh but that is quite unfair
yeah that would be selfish
So I guess I'll let you go, now go!

Where's that love in your eyes
All that love for me
Dear, what happened to your eyes
Why do you give me those empty eyes

I don't know those eyes
Those empty eyes
I don't know those eyes
Those empty eyes

Where's that love in your eyes
All that love for me
Dear, what happened to your eyes
Why do you give me those empty eyes

Where's that love in your eyes
All that love for me
Dear, what happened to your eyes
Why do you give me those empty eyes
Track Name: This Is The Life (Amy MacDonald cover)
Oh the wind whistles down
The cold dark street tonight
And the people they were dancing
To the music vibe

And the boys chase the girls, with curls in their hair
While the shocked too many "just" sit way over there
And the songs get louder each one better than before

And you're singing the song thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and your head feels twice the size
Where you gonna go, where you gonna go, where you gonna sleep tonight?
And you're singing the song thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and your head feels twice the size
Where you gonna go, where you gonna go, where you gonna sleep tonight?
Where you gonna sleep tonight

So you're heading down the road in your taxi for 4
And you're waiting outside jimmy's front door
But nobody's in and nobody's home till 4
So you're sitting there with nothing to do
Talking about Robert Riger and his motley crew
And where you gonna go, where you gonna sleep tonight?

And you're singing the song thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and your head feels twice the size
Where you gonna go, where you gonna go, where you gonna sleep tonight?
And you're singing the song thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and your head feels twice the size
Where you gonna go, where you gonna go, where you gonna sleep tonight?
Where you gonna sleep tonight

And you singing the song thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and your head feels twice the size
Where you gonna go, where you gonna go, where you gonna sleep tonight?
And you singing the song thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and your head feels twice the size
Where you gonna go, where you gonna go, where you gonna sleep tonight?

Where you gonna sleep tonight?
Track Name: Folsom Prison Blues (Johnny Cash cover)
I hear the train a comin'
It's rolling round the bend
And I ain't seen the sunshine since I don't know when,
I'm stuck in Folsom prison, and time keeps draggin' on
But that train keeps a rollin' on down to San Antone..
When I was just a baby my mama told me. Son,
Always be a good boy, don't ever play with guns.
But I shot a man in Reno just to watch him die
When I hear that whistle blowing, I hang my head and cry..

I bet there's rich folks eating from a fancy dining car
They're probably drinkin' coffee and smoking big cigars.
Well I know I had it coming, I know I can't be free
But those people keep a movin'
And that's what tortures me...

Well if they freed me from this prison,
If that railroad train was mine
I bet I'd move it on a little farther down the line
Far from Folsom prison, that's where I want to stay
And I'd let that lonesome whistle blow my blues away
Track Name: Bluebird (Lindi Ortega cover)
If I were a Bluebird I'd sing all day
I'd sit on the shoulders of people at pain
I'd sing a tune for the lonely and sad
Just to remind them that life ain't so bad

If I were a Bluebird I'd sing a song
If I were a Bluebird you'd sing along
But I'm not a Bluebird I'm sorry to say
Oh I'm gonna sing songs to you anyway

If I were a Bluebird I'd sing while I fly
All through the tree tops and across the sky
Sing to the ocean and sing to the sun
Just so I teach them the songs that I've sung

If I were a Bluebird I'd sing a song
If I were a Bluebird you'd sing along
But I'm not a Bluebird I'm sorry to say
Oh I'm gonna sing songs to you anyway

If I were a Bluebird I'd sing a song
If I were a Bluebird you'd sing along
But I'm not a Bluebird I'm sorry to say
Oh I'm gonna sing songs to you anyway

No, I'm not a Bluebird I'm sorry to say
Oh I'm gonna sing songs to you anyway
