Track Name: That Fire
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
Track Name: You're Not Alone
Well I'm sittin 'round feeling half my age
Cause these thoughts of you won't go away
I'm sitting 'round with not much to do
So i sit around and i think of you
You're not alone, You're not alone my friend
You're not alone, You're not alone my friend
Well i'm sittin 'round and i'm feeling dazed
Cause these thoughts of you won't go away
I'm sitting 'round and i watch the sky
Wishin it was you and i
You're not alone, you're not alone my friend
You're not alone, you're not alone my friend
No, you're not alone x 3
You're not alone my friend
Well I'm sittin 'round feeling half my age
Cause these thoughts of you won't go away
I'm sitting 'round with not much to do
So i sit around and i think of you
You're not alone, you're not alone my friend
You're not alone, you're not alone my friend
No, you're not alone x 3
You're not alone my friend
Track Name: Wildside
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....
Track Name: A Little Sign
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
Track Name: Should've Known Better
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
Track Name: Let Me Know
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
