Track Name: The Circus Is Coming To Town
The circus is coming to town
Don't wanna miss it do ya?
Step right up and let's get down

I know you're lonely
But your only fooling around
Everybody's looking for a good time
You could be mine tonight

The circus is coming to town
Don't wanna miss it do ya?
Step right up and let's get down

Everybody wants to be a high flyer
On the high wire of love

The circus is coming to town
Track Name: Heart-Shaped Man
he is a heart-shaped man
he's got his head in the sand
he's got his fingers in his ears
to wipe away the tears
he is a heart-shaped man

he's got a heart-shaped head
sleeps in a heart-shaped bed
he is the color of a rose
and everybody knows
he is a heart-shaped man

picture yourself on a boat with nobody else
the water's leaking in
no bucket or a tin to help you bail it out
fight for yourself
you've got to fight for yourself
tell me how you feel, come on and make it real
it's what it's all about

trapped like a bird in a gilded cage
life is the debt that you can't repay
you've seen the signs but do you know the way?
the way to love.

(chorus)

Do you feel my love?
Track Name: 123456789
I got money in my pocket and a woman on my mind
I got a woman in my pocket and money's on her mind
123456789

Gonna go see her and bring her a bottle of wine
Tell her that I love her more than a million times
123456789

The best things cost you nothing
And that's all you'll ever have
Cause the one thing that you need is in your hand, yes it is.

I got a buzzin in my pocket and my lover's on the line
He's got a two timing heart and a one track mind
123456789

I'm gonna give my love a penny just to see how well he lies
By the time I get to 10 he better open up his eyes
123456789

There's one thing I know,
Round things roll,
love lies and money walks &
Yesterday ain't no tomorrow!

I got money in my pocket and a woman on my mind (keep walking)
I got a woman in my pocket and money's on her mind (keep talkin)

Track Name: Blue
Everybody's gone
they left the party and went home without you
Everybody's found that certain someone
they can hold on to.
Oh, doesn't mean you'll always be alone, you know.

Why so blue

Everybody says they're sorry
they just made other plans with anyone
Gone to see the side show at the circus
and the bands about to go on
Oh, doesn't mean you'll always be alone, be strong

Why so blue



Why so blue??
Track Name: Dreaming Of A Dream
I'm dreaming of a dream for you
Way up in the stars
Coming to where you are real soon
I'm dreaming of a dream for you

I'm dreaming of a dream for you
Way up in the clouds
Don't let it get you down
It's true, I'm dreaming of a dream for you

Something in my heart just tells me
Everythings gonna be alright
Cause tonight I'll be dreaming of a dream for you
Track Name: Nobody Now
Searchin through the desert for a flower
Crawling where the river used to run
Time can't erase the lines on my face
Shadows growing shorter by the hour
I walk until the ocean meets the sun
And falls into place
I long for your embrace

California like summer rain
Got my eyes wide open
I see everything
And it's too late to turn back now
Got my head going round and round
Who's nobody now?

I used to keep your picture in my pocket
It helped me keep your body of my mind
And now I'm alone (the lights are on but)
Nobody's home.

California like summer rain
Got my eyes wide open
I can breathe again
And it's too late to turn back now
Got my head going round and round
Who's nobody now?
Who's the loser this songs about?
I'm nobody now.
Track Name: Never Knew Ya
Never knew ya

How can I explain
To a heart that's been broken this way?
I am lost but I know
I must let you go
Even though I never knew ya

Would you promise to save me a kiss?
Would you tell me you'd never forgive?
Oh I'm lost but I know
I must let you go
Even though I never knew ya

Roads were untravelled
No one came to see
Left without shadows
Never meant to be
Track Name: Passed You By
I'll never forget her
Upon a smile
Upon a face
Across the room you lose me
I'm lost in time I'm lost in space
I'll never go anywhere if you don't
You never get anything
If you don't try
You gotta leave it behind when you go
Another moment in time
Will pass you by
Pass you by
Track Name: Friend
I can't stand up I can't fake another day
I've been drowned in silence
Watch me wash these blues away
I've been crawling round the yard
Underneath the stars
We used to dream
I've been waiting for your call
Wondering where you are and where you'll be
I keep holding on
But I could really use a friend

Drunk and tied up
Where truth and loneliness collide
I've been uninspired
No where to go nowhere to hide
I've been crawling round the yard
Underneath the stars
We used to dream
I've been waiting for your call
Wondering where you are and where you'll be
I keep holding on
But I could really use a friend
I'm still holding on babe
I could really use a friend
