That Fire 03:58
Won't somebody put that fire out, its creeping up upon my toes Its been poked and its been teased and told where it shouldn't go Still every morning comes that breeze, and gives it just a little blow It seems that things are heating up That fire is on my case and got me acting like i just don't know Surprise its on my tail and got me pushing just a little more I can feel the heat, and man, its hitting places that it shouldn't go That fire is on my case and got me acting like i just don't know Why's that fire haunting me, i used to have some self control Its thermal trouble, and creeping up upon my clothes I don't need fire, i don't need smoke, i don't need nothing that is down that road Its seems that things are heating up That fire is on my case and got me acting like i just don't know Surprise its on my tail and got me pushing just a little more I can feel the heat, and man, its hitting places that it shouldn't go That fire is on my case and got me acting like i just don't know Here we go I'd better stop, drop and roll Before that fire takes It seems that things are heating up That fire is on my case and got me acting like i just don't know Surprise its on my tail and got me pushing just a little more I can feel the heat, and man, its hitting places that it shouldn't go That fire is on my case and got me acting like i just don't know

Wildside 03:58
Its been coming clear to me, i've got some sides i won't be shaking Some things that i have carried through with me through all this time and aging I remember feeling frozen Ah man it just kept calling Through all the nights still i kept my cool as though it never phased me Its the betterside of mid night, but i can't fall asleep I'm just inclined to keep on rolling, and see what morning brings I must admit it just the Wildside of me, it just keeps calling It's been said, i love the chase and i will not be changing Its a habit i can't break, especially come lately I remember feeling chosen Ah man it just kept calling Through all the nights still i kept my cool so she could be my lady Its the betterside of mid night, but i can't fall asleep I'm just inclined to keep on rolling, and see what morning brings I must admit it just the Wildside of me, it just keeps calling It goes....

This world is just an island and changing like the seasons before me now As I'm flying down this highway chasing down a feeling Then the sun it shines just in time on something worth revealing for me now This world is just and island Now I know I'm not leaving We're all just getting older With passing time we're all just trying to find a way to lift that weight from off our shoulders A little sign that comes along to help us ease our minds Finding something worth believing It took time but now I'm seeing All my cares and all my fears Its seems as though they are retreating A little sign has come along to help me ease my mind and from this day I'll be feeling fine For all I've left behind me There's always been a reason for me now As I'm flying around this ocean chasing down a feeling We're all just getting older With passing time we're all just trying to find a way to lift that weight from off our shoulders A little sign that comes along to help us ease our minds Finding something worth believing It took time but now I'm seeing All my cares and all my fears Its seems as though they are retreating A little sign has come along to help me ease my mind and from this day I'll be feeling fine

Oh ya you should've known better Now you're finding yourself alone The sun set on all of your chances And its chilling you to the bone No time to sit and regret it You should be taking this time to grow So next time you're gonna know better When a good thing comes along Oh ya, you should've known better Than to picture yourself with somebody better Good times can never get better Unless you open yourself to change like the weather Oh ya you should've known better Then to even try and play the role Next time you'll only be acting when your sitting there all alone Its time you learned your lesson Started singing a different song So next time you're gonna know better When a good thing comes along Oh ya, you should've known better Than to picture yourself with somebody better Good times can never get better Unless you open yourself to change like the weather It seems you're searching for something that you heard in a song or read in a letter Good times will never get better when you picture yourself with somebody better It seems you took your chances when you let that someone go You were hoping it'd all work out when you walked on out the door But now you're looking for answers wondering where it all could've gone Well I hope that somebody catches you cause you're falling

Let Me Know 03:18
Ah well you're uptight but you'd be feeling alright if you'd just come outside that shell you're living in There's no mistaking that all that time you taking are goodtimes you've been wasting Just by holding back In the morning you should call Leave a message on my phone Yeah its all been done before So if you feel it let me know You can't waste another day caught up in all those silly games Chances come and chances go so if you feel it let me know Ah well its your fight The enemy's in your mind when something just ain't feeling right with the state you're living in You need to stand up Show that you've had enough and lift that sagging head up and let it all come out In the morning you should call Leave a message on my phone Yeah its all been done before So if you feel it let me know You can't waste another day caught up in all those silly games Chances come and chances go so if you feel it let me know Come on let me know If you feel it let me know Let me know Cause I can see it Oh yeah you feel it So come on let me know
