Track Name: One Thing
i look in the rear view mirror
leaving the lights behind
somehow i can still hear the jackpot janglin’
echo in my mind

i think of the days i wasted
and the price i paid
the desperate bets i placed on losing races
and all the mistakes i made

and if only i knew then everything that i know now
ONE THING leads to another
ONE THING leads to another
on the road that leads to you

had a ninety-two camaro
i barely knew how to drive
we were flying like an arrow
ninety-nine miles an hour where the sign said forty-five

and she said she’s gonna be my blue jean juliet and call me romeo
now the car is in the junkyard waiting for a jump start
julie left long ago.

and if only i knew then everything that i know now
ONE THING leads to another
ONE THING leads to another
on the road that leads to you

there’s an arrow sign twenty miles from town
but the screws came loose so it points straight down
still the people come but nobody knows
which way they’re supposed to go
Track Name: When You're Gone
who’s gonna hold you warm and tight
thru the cold and the black of night
and when the storm cloud’s hangin round your head
who’s gonna know what to say to ease ya out of it

who’s gonna be your hero when your scared
and when the party’s over who’s gonna help you
clean up the mess, zip up the back of your dress
who’s gonna know when no means no and when no means yes

girl you’re gonna regret everything that you said
and you’ll know you were wrong
WHEN YOU’RE GONE, gone, WHEN YOU’RE GONE

one day you’ll find yourself somebody new
but he won’t love you half as well as i do
seven months, give or take, just to break him in
now why in the world would you wanna go thru all of that again

though you try to pretend, starting over again
is much easier said than done
WHEN YOU’RE GONE, gone, WHEN YOU’RE GONE

you’ll be sorry when you realize
what you had, what you lost
you’ll remember when you’re gone

you better take a good look at what you’re losing

you’ll look back on the day when you threw it all away
and you’ll wonder how you ever let a good thing go so wrong,
when you’re gone
(you should have listened, but you didn’t)
(now look what you did, that was stupid)
Track Name: Anybody Out There
the girl in the blue dress is the daytime waitress
down at the o.k. cafe downtown
she sings in the kitchen where noone can listen
and she dances when noones around

she sits by the window on the train ride home,
quiet and shy
and she looks up into a clear blue sky and says

can ANYBODY OUT THERE hear me
is there anybody out there listening
can ANYBODY OUT THERE hear me
can you hear me at all

man carries his bass down to the station
he lays his case down for some nickels and dimes
bows out an old thing so low down and lonely
it gets swallowed by the sound
of a downtown train going by

the footsteps rumble like thunder
from a cloud of dark gray suits
then the storm breaks
he sees the girl in blue

can ANYBODY OUT THERE hear me
is there anybody out there listening
can ANYBODY OUT THERE hear me
can you hear me at all

a thousand cages, a thousand birds
a thousand voices, a million words
caught in the lost and found
waiting around to be heard

everybody needs someone to listen
one you can count on to understand
Track Name: If I Gave You My Heart
if i were a desert cracked up and dry
and you were a rain cloud crossing the sky
would you give me some water and bring me to life
or roll on to another horizon

if i were an ocean helpless and wide
and you were the moon always tossing and turning the tide
would you smile on me every now and then
or just carelessly turn me around and around again

in the middle of december
when the sky is cold and gray
could your body still remember
the summer promises we made

IF I GAVE YOU MY HEART what would you do with it
would you always be kind always be true

when the world’s shiny and new
we roll into town ten feet off the ground
flipping upside-down like young lovers do
we are light as a feather floating in neverland

though it feels like the very first time
i’ve been down this road before
so before i run all the red lights
i wanna know for sure

IF I GAVE YOU MY HEART what would you do with it
would you always be kind always be true
would you go changing your mind and breaking it all apart
tell me now what would you do if IF I GAVE YOU MY HEART

would you take it in, take it home
give it loving like it never has known
maybe some moonlit night would you close the doors,
hold me tight and give me yours

let it out, let it in
this is where we begin
you never know where it ends till it ends
Track Name: Nothing But Static
I turn on my tv, to channel ten
i watch the same old thing i saw before again
something looks different, the color fades out
it aint makin’ me happy like it used to yesterday now

maybe my eyes are getting tired
maybe my mind’s just letting go
i don’t know, i don’t know

I’m getting NOTHING BUT STATIC
over the air, as i sink into the back of my chair
NOTHING BUT STATIC in my eyes
like a technicolor lullaby
I’m getting NOTHING BUT STATIC
fading away in a thousand little shades of grey
NOTHING BUT STATIC still the t.v. won’t leave me alone

go see my doctor, he runs some tests
starts saying something ‘bout the side-effects of stress
his lips are moving, i watch his eyes
i don’t hear nothing but the traffic going by

continuous stream of information
making my mind kindof overflow
i don’t know, i don’t know

I’m getting NOTHING BUT STATIC
over the air, as i sink into the back of my chair
NOTHING BUT STATIC in my eyes
like a technicolor lullaby
I’m getting NOTHING BUT STATIC
fading away in a thousand little shades of grey
NOTHING BUT STATIC still the t.v. won’t leave me alone
Track Name: Still
i found a photograph of you and me
with our old california friends
a frozen picture of what used to be way back when

dig the hairstyles and the hippie clothes
dig those buddy holly frames
none of this stuff fits us anymore
some things never change

STILL our starlight fills the sky
STILL our candle holds a fire
baby don’t you know i still go crazy for you

look again a hundred years from now
when you and i are long gone
kids in their hydrogen jackets all floating around
while the radio keeps on playing the same old songs

STILL our starlight fills the sky
STILL our candle holds a fire
baby don’t you know i still go crazy for you

STILL as a summer sky over an endless sea
i see the light in your eyes when you are here with me
and you are here with me STILL

STILL our starlight fills the sky
STILL our candle holds a fire
baby don’t you know i still go crazy for you
like i did on the day when i said i do
summer, winter, spring or fall and i always will
STILL
Track Name: Rebecca
she was pourin pink lemonade at the carnival corn-dog stand
i was doing three sets a day in an old time trad-jazz band

every day we’d get a little close
meet in the shade under the roller coaster
and we’d like around in the grass
just like our boss said we’re not supposed to

why don’t you wanna be my girl, REBECCA
why don’t you believe anything i say
ah, REBECCA

I come knockin on her window at night and say
can becky come out and play
she close the window, turn out the light
and say oh no no no, no way

c’mon baby, there’s nothing to be afraid of
you just gotta slide out the window and climb down a tree
take a ride up to the old water tower with me
and the moon and the stars and the stuff that dreams are made of

why don’t you wanna be my girl, REBECCA
why don’t you believe anything i say
i won’t ever let you go
i need you more than you even know
and you and i were born to roll together, forever, REBECCA

when we’re seventy-five there’s no doubt we will be
still in love, still alive, rockin outside on the front porch swing
and the kids of our kids will bring their kids over
for the fourth of july and the sparklers will be sparkling
for you and i, queen and king
Track Name: Pocket Superman
baby turn around and look at me
tell me what’s on your mind
are we breaking down or just breaking up for the hundred millionth time

you know this love of ours is a ferris wheel
we ride thru the highs and the lows
we’ve been up and down far too many times
and i don’t want to ride it anymore

i know
what you need is a POCKET size SUPERMAN
give you what you want and then fly away
lovin little rocket you can slip into your pocket
holdin steady till you’re ready to play

you need a perfect man with a heart of steel
to satisfy your needs
someone to come when you call him
catch you when you’re fallin
and spin your galaxies
so you know that you don’t need me

and i know
what you need is a POCKET size SUPERMAN
give you what you want and then fly away
lovin little rocket you can slip into your pocket
holdin steady till you’re ready to play

and he’ll do whatever you say
and he’ll never get in your way
hiding up on a shelf
see you don’t need me to do it you can do it to yourself
look in the sky it’s a bird, it’s a plane
you can drive yourself insane
and always buy the family size of duracells

what you need is a POCKET size SUPERMAN
give you what you want and then fly away
lovin little rocket you can slip into your pocket
holdin steady till you’re ready to play
Track Name: If You Were Mine
IF YOU WERE MINE
the sunlight would always shine
and light up the world for you and me, so beautifully
and what a magnificent light it would be

and oh, how high our garden would grow
and the seeds of our love would fly far and wide
like dandelions, IF YOU WERE MINE

i would never leave you lonely
give you all my love every day
you would be my one, my one and only
and i won’t have it any other way

so as soon as you’re ready to stay
right here in my arms where you belong , that moment on
i would have you and hold you and love you as long as i’m alive
and our lovelly light would always shine
IF YOU WERE MINE

i would never take you for granted
when the winter wind begins to blow
once the seeds of love have all been planted
you know i’ll be there to help them grow

so as soon as you’re ready to stay
right here in my arms where you belong , that moment on
i would have you and hold you and love you as long as i’m alive
and our light will shine, and you will be mine
Track Name: Ghost Band
way back before we were born
we used to be really big
we’d pop a bottle of dom perignon or whatever we wanted after the gig

we played the hollywood bowl
to a capacity crowd, mind you
spent all our money on them hollywood honeys
i wonder where are we now

we’re just a GHOST BAND, dig that sound
comin to you live from the underground
do you remember me, the way it used to be
we’re just a GHOST BAND, dig that vibe
comin to you live from the other side
so darling close your eyes
this next tune i know you’ll recognize
(GHOST BAND) the sound that never dies

we fit right into their shoes
we sound exactly the same as we ever did
we stand with our grandpas and grandmas and smile for the cameras
and sign somebody else’s name . . .

G-G-G-GHOST BAND, dig that sound
comin to you live from the underground
do you remember me, the way it used to be
we’re just a GHOST BAND, dig that vibe
comin to you live from the other side
so darling close your eyes
this next tune i know you’ll recognize
(GHOST BAND) the sound that never dies
