Track Name: I'll Never Leave You or Forsake You
You say it’s alright
Give me one year
It’’s the nick of time
The world’s corrupt
It’s not who you are
But who you know


You can’t defeat what you want me to be
You can’t dish what you wish you could be
And it shows
It’s all a show


Can’t hear them speaking
Let it pass by; needing
Something must be done
But it’s not


You can’t defeat what you want me to be
You can’t dish what you wish you could be
And it shows
It’s all a show

I’ll never leave you or forsake you
Track Name: I'll Be on My Doubts
Everybody’s gonna dance tonight
We’re gonna dance the night away
Everybody’s gonna feel alright
We gonna feel alright yea

Say oh yeah


obvious is as obvious is as obvious is as

can you feel it out
when I’ll be on my doubts

everybody’s gonna lift it up
lift it up today
everybody’s gonna put their hands up
put their hands up today

obvious is as obvious is as obvious is as

can you feel it out
when I’ll be on my doubts
Track Name: Nothing Can Come Between Us
I drive a dozen miles away
Stay where I can think where I figure a way yeah
This time I talked myself to sleep
And that’s not alright
alright yeah

Oh where’s that station
Oh where’s that theorist by your house
Not even nations
Nothing can come between us

Wish I caught a glimpse of the sun today
I never told you that the sun was set to sway
Sick of towns that breathe then suffocate
It’s not alright
alright with me

Oh wheres that station
Oh wheres that theorist by your house
Not even nations
Nothing can come between us

oh when you took out all the things
outside
wish you stayed

oh where’s your picture
it’s in my wallet on the shelf
oh where’s your getup
I took it always always on myself
oh where’s your picture
it’s in my wallet on the shelf
oh where’s your getup
Nothing can come between us
Track Name: Vermont
I talked to benjamin today, he said you’re gone away for a while
that you miss everything and you still cant leave behind your smile
he said you're tired and just a bit mad, pulling your hair out over the fads
and you see the world going miles an miles an hour

he said you went as far as you could go
he said you went as far as the sun sets and the moon does glow

you try to explore the corners of the continents in the absence of a government
isn’t that what everyone wanted
i never told you it would be easy, love never comes to those who don’t believe in it
i hope that you won’t be leaving to vermont

he said you went as far as you could go
he said you went as far as the sun sets and the moon does glow
Track Name: Next To You
there's a grey office chair
that I would roll in the day
clothes everywhere
a wrinkle in the shirts for kisses we made
our love will never fade

oh, I want to be next to you
bring me on back, I want to be with you

I'm still thinking of Sunday
when I'll take the bus up to you
I don't want to think about Wednesday
when I'll say goodbye and we make do

oh, I want to be next to you
bring me on back, I want to be with you
Track Name: Everybody Waits (For Love)
I’m not settling down, Take it down
Shaking up the system, Shaking the floor
They told everyone, Move your hearts
Move your souls, This systems taking control
I’m not shaking up, You’ve got heart
Putting up, With systems asking for more
I saw people there, Moving up
Washing up their fears, Like dishes on machine flow

Everybody waits for love
Everybody waits for Friday’s love
Everybody waits for love When the paycheck comes

I got dinner now, happens somehow
Settle down, wait till Fridays pounds
I start selling things, remember when musically
these records weren’t going anywhere
I got money on a Friday afternoon and I know I got bills to pay
Got some kinda love, buy some songs, give some love
Everybody sing it again

Everybody waits for love
Everybody waits for Fridays love
Everybody waits for love When the paycheck comes
