Track Name: I Think You Know
i think you know (chapman)

it’s not the end
it’s not the end of everything
and you pretend that you don’t know
but you begin to let it go

what are you so afraid of?
what are you waiting for?
what do you think you’re made of?
i think you know

the things you’ve seen
the things you’ve seen won’t go away
and in between the truth and lies
that’s where the old inside dies

what are you so afraid of?
what are you waiting for?
what do you think you’re made of?
i think you know
i think you know

standing at the water’s edge
close your eyes and jump on in
jump on in

what are you so afraid of?
what are you waiting for?
just turn around and go
what do you think you’re made of?

what are you so afraid of?
what are you waiting for?
what do you think you’re made of?
i think you know
i think you know
i think you know
Track Name: New Car
new car (dane/chapman)

i get a new car every morning
drive it to work most every day
and if i spill my tea or coffee
i know the stain will go away

in my new car that i didn’t pay for
like a movie star the ones we all adore

i start my new car every morning
people say it isn’t fair
and i agree i don’t deserve it
though i look like a millionaire

in my new car that i didn’t pay for
like a movie star the ones we all adore

i remember the dreaded carwash
and the feeling when somebody nicked the paint
and the time when the windshield wipers fell off
they fell off in the rain

as i look back i often question
could i ever keep it clean
and even with my best intentions
you could always find some streaks

but not on my new car that i didn’t pay for
like a movie star that we adore
where did it come from i can’t be sure
but this is my car the kind you can’t ignore
Track Name: Something's Gotta Give
something’s gotta give (chapman/dane)

it’s not that you said no to me
i know that would have been just fine
but the fact that you said nothing at all
it has made me lose my mind… yeah

how could i forget that i might have it made
i’m reminded as i watch your taillights fade
i’ve got to stop and think just what it means to live
something’s gotta give
something’s gotta give… yeah

years have come and past the test
i know you love me deep inside
your perfect actions speak your mind the best
i didn’t hear you say goodbye… no no no

how could i forget that i might have it made
i’m reminded as i watch your taillights fade
i’ve got to stop and think just what it means to live
something’s gotta give
something’s gotta give
something’s gotta give
something’s gotta give

how could i forget that i might have it made
i’m reminded as i watch your taillights fade
i’ve got to stop and think just what it means to live
something’s gotta give
something’s gotta give
something’s gotta give
yeah… something’s gotta give

your actions never tell a lie
i didn’t hear you say goodbye
Track Name: Leaving In Mind
leaving in mind (davis/chapman)

i woke up, open shut, i was running out of time
you were bored, broken chord, we were partners in a crime
i got the message and i crumbled on a dime
that was easy

so here you go, don’t you know, wander back and i’ll repent
sometimes i wonder where my backbone went
we’ll keep it up until the money’s all spent
i think it’s easy
the past is all behind

if you got leaving in mind
if you got leaving in mind
if there’s something that you can’t find
i’d like to know

i’m all heart, not smart, i’d be betting on the race
i disallow, here and now, your stupid poker face
i’m thinking this one winds up in the trophy case
you’ve got to feel it

but just in case, i’m saving face, if you ever change your mind
i’ll be there, i can swear, you should bear in mind
i’m gonna be just like your nightmares all combined
so let’s not go there
we’ve got to work with what we’ve got

if you got leaving in mind
if you got leaving in mind
if there’s something that you can’t find
i ought to know

because we all can make mistakes
sometimes it’s not so great
we’ve got to learn to stop appreciating everything
we work so hard to make our own, but when they’re ours we’re still alone
i’ve got some good news i would like to bring

if you got leaving in mind
if you got leaving in mind
if there’s something that you can’t find
i want to know

if you got leaving in mind
if you got leaving in mind
if there’s something that you can’t find
if there’s something that you can’t find
if there’s something that you can’t find
i’d like to know
Track Name: Lost
lost (chapman/dane)

i’ve got everything i need
a pot of gold and a bag of magic beans
the curtains call I’ll play my guitar
in certain circles they view me as a star

but i am lost
all alone in this town
i am suddenly frightened by the sound
of never being found

i sing a familiar tune
it feels good for a moment or two
my song sings a shallow refrain
what is wrong with my soul and the way i pray

‘cause i am lost
all alone in this town
i am suddenly frightened by the sound
of never being found

someday you will find me again
broken down on my knees
i’ll be found
but until then i am bound

to be lost
all alone in this town
i am constantly frightened by the sound
of never being found
of never being found
i want to be found
Track Name: Hard To Believe
hard to believe (shaw/chapman)

don’t know why i try to pry these thoughts from inside
they’ll be watching you
it’s hard to believe

the blacker the taste, it satisfies
the more it elates, the less we get by
they’ll be wanting you
so hard to believe
it’s hard to believe

and in a word, it’s going to cut you down
and send you in a spin
in a world that will crumble, comes around
to set you up again

green and spry, i try to pry these thoughts from inside
they’ll be watching you
but it’s hard to believe
so hard to believe
it’s hard to believe
Track Name: No One Knows
no one knows (chapman/dane)

all this time i want to be happy
i need to seem happy, but i really don’t care
on my mind that’s where you’re hiding
i keep hiding, i’m going nowhere
everyday i seem a little bit brighter

‘round and ‘round i’ve got to keep moving
i need to keep moving, i’m staying in place
in my town you’ve got to seem cooler
you’ve got to be cool and try to save face
everyday i seem a little bit brighter… everyday

i’m passed out on sunday in my very best clothes
i’ve been found in places where no man should go
i’ve got a hole in my heart and i think it shows
and if i love Jesus, how come no one knows?

you’re my friend but you made me a coward
hour by hour i’m sinking so low
then again i’ve learned to be stronger
how much longer, i really don’t know
everyday i seem a little bit brighter… everyday

i’m passed out on sunday in my very best clothes
i’ve been found in places where no man should go
i’ve got a hole in my heart and i think it shows
and if i love Jesus, how come no one knows?

all this time i want to be happy
i need to seem happy, but i really don’t care

i’m passed out on sunday in my very best clothes
i’ve been found in places where no man should go
i’ve got a hole in my heart and i think it shows
and if i love Jesus, how come no one knows?
how come no one knows? how come no one knows?
how come no one knows?
Track Name: Catch
catch (chapman/dane)

i saw you late friday night (at the underground)
voted most likely to be the ride (drive your friends around)
you caught my eye

wallflowers grow in the darkest light (when they’re on their own)
pulled by your roots at closing time (you don’t want to go)
you caught my eye
tell me something real tonight

do you sometimes feel like you’re tied to the tracks?
you know the deal, you might never make it back
how do you feel if you feel at all?
i want you to know i will catch you when you fall

we went out for a bit of caffeine (at 3:00am)
you shred your napkin up while talking (to me again)
you caught my eye
tell me something real tonight

do you sometimes feel like you’re tied to the tracks?
you know the deal, you might never make it back
how do you feel if you feel at all?
i want you to know i will catch you when you fall

i want to catch you
i want to catch you when you fall

do you sometimes feel like you’re tied to the tracks?
you know the deal, you might never make it back
how do you feel if you feel at all?
i want you to know i will catch you when you fall

do you sometimes feel like you’re tied to the tracks?
you know the deal, you will not be coming back
how do you feel if you feel at all?
i want you to know i will catch you when you fall

i want to catch you
Track Name: I Believe In You
i believe in you (dylan)

they ask me how i feel and if my love is real
and how i know i’ll make it through
they look at me and frown, they’d like to drive me from this town
they don’t want me around
‘cause i believe in you

they show me to the door, they say don’t come back no more
‘cause i don’t be like they like me to
and i walk out on my own, a thousand miles from home
but i don’t feel alone
‘cause i believe in you

i believe in you even through the tears and laughter
i believe in you even though we be apart
i believe in you even on the morning after
oh, when the dawn is nearing
oh, when the night is disappearing
oh, when this feeling’s still here in my heart

don’t let me drift too far, keep me where you are where i always be renewed
and that which you’ve given me today is worth more than i could pay
no matter what they say
i believe in you

i believe in you when winter turn to summer
i believe in you when white turn to black
i believe in you even though i feel outnumbered
oh, though the earth may shake me
oh, though my friends may forsake me
oh, even they couldn’t make me go back

don’t let me change my heart, keep me set apart
from all those plans they will pursue
and i, i don’t mind the pain, i don’t mind the driving rain
i know i will sustain
‘cause i believe in you
i believe in You
Track Name: The Difference
the difference (chapman/dane)

roll down the windows and hold the wheel
let me close my eyes
listen to the wind blow, now tell me how you feel
i’ll push the pedal while you drive

you know how i am
this is how i could be
do you see the difference?

let’s take our shoes off, and the rest
go for a walk with me
i know it’s raining, maybe the best
opportunity to feel we’re free

you know how i am
this is how i could be
do you see the difference?

pick up the mattress, pull out the headboard
we’re sleeping outside tonight
and this my weakness, you know what it’s there for
and what can fill me inside

you know how i am
this is how i could be
do you see the difference?
it’s not how i began
tell me can you see
can you see the difference?
