Track Name: All We Have Is Now
There'll come a day when I can't hold you,
so won't you let me hold you now.
Now.
Let me hold you now.

There'll come a day when I can't know you,
so won't you let me know you now.
Now.
Let me know you now.

Every beat... beat of your heart, is one less I've got.
Honey, you should be here... here but you're not.

There'll come a day when it's all over,
baby all we have is now.
Now.
All we have is now.
Track Name: (Try To) Pretend
Words on my tongue that I can’t speak
Are even harder to swallow
All I can think when our eyes meet
Is maybe our lips they will follow
Yes, maybe our lips they will follow.

Just try to pretend you
Don’t want me
I’ll try to pretend I
Don’t want you

Each nerve in my skin can detect it
We’re inches away from connection
Our bodies are burning electric
Our particles melt from the tension
Our particles melt from the tension

Just try to pretend you
Don’t want me
I’ll try to pretend I
Don’t want you

I mean of course I don’t want you
I mean of course I don’t want you

Our love’s become something magnetic
An invisible force of attraction
Baby now don’t you forget it
Desire’s a natural reaction
All this desire’s a natural reaction

Just try to pretend you
Don’t want me
I’ll try to pretend I
Don’t want you
Track Name: Slow-Motion Jeans
I slip my hand into your back, right pocket.
Those hips are moving swaying in their sockets.

When her feet hit the floor
it’s like the band starts playing
If you could see her move
You’d know just what I’m saying

You slip your hand into my left side jacket
This girl’s got something I just have to have it.

‘Neath her feet it’s like the streets
Were just made for dancing
How can I loose my heart
In the name of fashion

When she slips into those
Slow-motion jeans
Girl, walk it out once for me

Those legs they strut even when she don’t let ‘em
My wildest dreams wrapped in those tight blue denim

There’s no spotlight in sight
But the girl, she’s still glowing
With every move she makes
She just keeps the beat going

When she slips into those
Slow-motion jeans
Girl, walk it out once for me

Ooo I swear. She got that. Special pair.
With magic stitched right into the seams.
And I don’t care. What else you wear.
But girl when you’re with me

Put on those slow-motion,
Girl’s got her slow-motion,
Put on those slow-motion jeans
Track Name: The Summer Of Lou Reed
It was the Summer of Lou Reed and the heat
Did its best to beat us
We wouldn’t let those girls defeat us.

With our spirits up and the windows down
We sang for freedom
You let them heartaches know that we don’t need them.

And the winter was long gone with the songs
That used to haunt us.
But look what all that sorrow brought us.

Take a walk on the wild side we cried
And the nights they echoed
Nothing to hold on to—so much to let go.

But if you ever peel back slowly and see
You may find a good friend and a good song’s all you need
The summer of white light, the summer of white heat
I won’t ever leave you
The Summer of Lou Reed

We’d talk of fortune, lust, rock and roll,
And where fame would take us.
That summer all those things would save us.

In the verses of Sweet Jane our pain
It seemed so painless
Those things we couldn’t change, they’d never change us.

But if you ever peel back slowly and see
You may find a good friend and a good song’s all you need
The summer of white light, the summer of white heat
I won’t ever leave you
The Summer of Lou Reed
Track Name: Prowess Is Power
As quick as the slip of the tongue
Her lips honey drip the taste of love
We were wrong to have gone our separate ways
But we were right to invite another taste

Baby, you were so convincing
I even remember thinking that the power was my own

You were slow to invoke your fatal spell
Not sent from heaven above, nor sent from hell
I was alone, turned to stone in your gaze
Why should I fight, I thought you might've changed your ways

Baby, you were so convincing
I even remember thinking that the power was my own

But I should've known, I should've known.

My wildest dreams, just like scenes in a play
She knew her part, all by heart there on the stage
Was I wrong to play along if I didn't know
That the tragic mislead lover was my role

Baby, you were so convincing
I even remember thinking that the power was my own

I should've known, I should've known.
Baby, you were so convincing
I even remember thinking that the power was my own
I should've known.
Track Name: Same Old Haunts
When every song sounds the same
On that jukebox playing in your brain
And it's just a waste of change
To put on her favorite song

When every night's just alright
And you're waiting for some sparks to light
Keep her outta mind, outta sight
And try not to feel alone

Of all the things that could be on my mind
Of all the things that could be on my mind
I can see her face
I can see her face

Do you got something to talk about
'Cause I can sure go without
The same old haunts
Do you got something that I can take
"Cause I can sure use a break
From my own thoughts
These same old haunts

When every dream's just as grey
As your bitter empty day to day
Like movies in your head they play
Movies where she's the star

With every new attempt you make
You shout towards heaven, "For heaven's sake"
Well someone's gotta take her place
And I don't care who you are

Of all the things that could be on my mind
Of all the things that could be on my mind
I can see her face
I can see her face

Do you got something to talk about
'Cause I can sure go without
The same old haunts
Do you got something that I can take
"Cause I can sure use a break
From my own thoughts
These same old haunts

When every song sounds the same
On that jukebox playing in your brain
And nothing's ever gonna change
By playing her favorite song
Track Name: Trouble
Romeo had his mind set, he was gonna win that Juliet
Gonna love her don't care how
It came at such a high cost, cause baby they were star-crossed
It's all that luck would allow

Johnny, when he found love, he caught himself a June bug
But catching lovers takes some time
When you've gotta past life, your children and your first wife
Well, Johnny had to walk that line

So every time my heart breaks, I tell myself that heartache
Just ain't gonna change my mind
The greatest of all endings has always been depending
On trouble in the storyline

Poe, he found the dark side, all the things the heart hides
In searching for his lost Lenore
Every line about her showed, though he was without her,
She'd be with him evermore

Jack, he didn't have long, he knew that he had done wrong
In taking someone else's Rose
But if fate was gonna choose her, he knew he wouldn't lose her
She said "Jack, I'll never let you go"

So every time my heart breaks, I tell myself that heartache
Just ain't gonna change my mind
Cause, Babe, our happy ending has always been depending
On trouble in the storyline
Track Name: Great Expectations
I don’t know, I don’t know what Adam saw in Eve
That he could not find in all the snakes and beasts
She’s a killer, an animal. It’s no different now
It only takes a single bite for her to bring you down

You were built to break my heart
And I was built to be ripped apart
My expectations were so great
But love is revenge on the human race

“Bone of bone, and flesh of flesh” woman took from man
As time went on there was nothing left; she’d taken all he had
First his soul and then his heart, then every ounce of joy
Was this the plan from the start? Was she created to destroy?

You were built to break my heart
And I was built to be ripped apart
My expectations were so great
But love is revenge on the human race

And the fall of man
Came not with what he ate
And the fall of man
Came the day that Eve was made

You were built to break my heart
And I was built to be ripped apart
My expectations were so great
But love is revenge on the human race
Love is revenge on the human race
Track Name: When All Else Fails
I’ll sing to you a love song darling
From the bottom of my heart.
It’ll be so sweet, you’ll have to keep
From crying when it starts.

And when you think you couldn’t stand
Me another day.
By its end, the song would send
Those doubts and fears away.

Powerless to all its charm
Sincerity and love.
Your heart would burst, and just one verse
Would surely be enough.

Surely be enough…

‘Cause there are days when all else fails
To show you just how much
You mean to me. You’ll always be
A friend that I can trust.
To fix my breaks, forgive mistakes
My calm when times get rough
And baby girl, I’d give the world
To know that I’m your love.

I’ll sing to you a love song darling
One you can’t ignore
It’ll be so nice, you won’t think twice
To let me sing you more.

I’d sing you things I’d never sing
To any other girl
Even if she was the last one left
In the whole wide world.

You’d ask for me to start right over
When I reach the end
And for a kiss, maybe on the lips
I’d sing this song again

I’d sing it all again…

‘Cause there are days when all else fails
To show you just how much
You mean to me. You’ll always be
A friend that I can trust.
To heal my aches, forgive mistakes
My calm when times get rough
And baby girl, I’d give the world
To know that I’m your love.
Track Name: The Wait
I was just a boy when my heart was stolen from me
a grieved and sorrowed boy for the thief would never love me
Then to my surprise I was swept away in madness
Her affections would be mine if I could sing her songs of sadness

But things change, people change, some things never change
Things change, people change, some things never change

No honor among thieves, I soon claimed what I was after
but fate had to release the hearts that had been captured
Years from now I know we both will look back grinning
If only I had known, some hearts just don't need winning

But things change, people change, some things never change
Things change, people change, some things never change

And the wait it wears me down, it wears me down
And the wait it wears me down, it wears me down
And the wait wears me down, wears me down, wears me down
wears me down

And the wait it wears you down, it wears you down
And the wait it wears you down, it wears you down
And the wait wears you down, wears you down, wears you down
wears you down, yeah

And the wait it wears me down, it wears you down
And the wait it wears me down, it wears you down
And the wait it wears wears me down, it wears you down
it wears me down
Track Name: The West Was Never Won
You can hear her name, it’s a whisper in the wind
And your soul knows where to find her
And to ride along, and to ride along that trail that never ends
Is to ride along beside her
None have survived of the great and mighty men
In vain they’ve tried to take her
For her boundaries begin, at the point where heaven’s end
Seen only by her Maker

That girl she was my wild west
My vast and untamed wilderness
One look would surely take your breath
I know cause breathless I was left
My eyes have seen and my tongue confess
No man can conquer endlessness
Her beauty’s terror and it scares me to death
No man can conquer endlessness

When first I’d seen, when first I’d seen that fierce and fiery sun
Get lost in her horizons
I knew a cowboy’s heart, that a cowboy’s heart could belong to none
Save for the dirt he dies on
And oh, Lord I swear by the barrel of my gun
Used only to defend her
In the end that boundless land, The West was never won
It was she who had surrendered

That girl she was my wild west
My vast and untamed wilderness
One look would surely take your breath
I know cause breathless I was left
My eyes have seen and my tongue confess
No man can conquer endlessness
Her beauty’s terror and it scares me to death
No man can conquer endlessness
