Distractions

(verse 1)

I've been waiting on you- long before we met

-living a life- full of regrets

Then you came along and helped me see

I've been waiting on you- to come and find me

(chorus)

But I... won't go wasting my time

...trying to make you mine

 

(verse 2)

I've fallen fast- so many times before

I've broken glass and kicked down doors

Then you came along and helped me see

I've been waiting on you- to come and find me

(chorus)

But I... won't go wasting my time

...trying to make you mine

 

(bridge)

There are moments I treasure- when I forget all about the past

But after- EVER AFTER -well, those moments, they just don't last

No, no, no, they just don't last...

 

(instrumental)

(chorus)

So, I... won't go wasting my time

...trying to make you mine

Boomerang

I don't know... how to tell you

All that you oughta know... if you'd like to love me

...and I'd like to think, I would treat you right

if you would just give me the time

We could resolve every fight

Darling, we'd be alright

'Cause you know that I... am thinking of you, every day and night

I don't know what to do... I don't wanna leave you- oh~

 

(pre-chorus)

I don't need you, but I want to stay true

I don't need you, but I want you...

(chorus)

...I don't know you that well, but I'm under your spell

...and it makes me believe, that you could be the one- for me

Tell me you wanna be the one- I'm waiting for

Don't leave me hanging on- outside your door

Tell me you wanna be the one... I'm waiting 'round to see

 

(verse 2)

I'd like to think- that I met my match

But it's hard to watch- this flame catch

-to this house- that ain't no home,

and I don't know where I belong

...so, I am ready... I'm ready to move along...

(bridge)

if you think you can do better, I'd wish you well

even though I don't wanna see you go, just so you know

if you are ready to stay, we will find our way

(pre-chorus)

'Cause I don't need you, but I want to stay true

I don't need you, but I want you...

(Chorus)

...and every word that you say, leaves me hanging on for more

...and every word that I pray, keeps me coming back for more

Tell me you wanna be the one- I'm waiting for

Don't leave me hangin' on- outside your door

Tell me you wanna be the one- I'm waiting 'round to see

The Other Side of the Moon

(verse 1)

I'm not waiting on tomorrow... 

while all of my sorrow- is washed and gone away

Baby, I don't know... no, we don't know...

where we're gonna go

(chorus)

So, I'm wastin' my time, waiting on you, waiting on me

and I- try to draw the line- between what's you, and what is me

And I... I've been waiting so long- to see the other side

...of the moon, of the moon, of the moon.

 

(verse 2)

Baby, I- I couldn't always see...

where the light was, deep down inside of me

Baby, I don't know... no, we don't know...

where we're gonna go

 

(bridge)

Is it all a choice- to fall in love again

-wouldn't we rather- skip over that dirtiness

and make a different move?

Baby, I don't know... no, we don't know...

where we're gonna go

 

(chorus)

So, I'm wastin' my time, waiting on you, waiting on me

and I- try to draw the line- between what's you, and what is me

And I... I've been waiting so long- to see the other side

...of the moon, of the moon, of the moon.

Self-Reliance

(verse 1)

I always remember- my mama, she- read to me

tales about princes- she read me... all those stories

She told me, baby, "Don't you ever wait on him.

You've got your own life.  You've got your own kin.

So don't always look- for what you want life to be

-Life is misleading... always showing you what you want to see

First trust in yourself.  

Not even in me, nobody else...

If you wanna let 'em in, rely on yourself

 

(chorus)

'Cause you don't need no one, no one but yourself

You've got your own mind, earn your own wealth

No, you don't need no one, no one but yourself

You've got your own skin, take care of your health

No, you don't need no one- no, nobody else

Before you can let 'em in, rely on yourself."

 

(verse 2)

Daddy always called me, "apple of his eye"

He said, "I'll always love you more than- any other guy!

No matter what you do- I know you'll go far...

I've known since the day you were born...

It's just who you are!

(chorus)

'Cause you don't need no one, no one but yourself

You've got your own mind, earn your own wealth

No, you don't need no one, no one but yourself

You've got your own skin, take care of your health

No, you don't need no one- no, nobody else

Before you can let 'em in, rely on yourself."

Collide

  Video available: Courtesy of Matthew Gordon World Cafe Live 

if I... could unravel... some mystery                                                      

wouldn't that be... a catastrophe                                                           

wouldn't it be over-rated... unappreciated

from how we see... how life could be

 

if I wasn't fascinated by what I've created

I don't think I could see a reason...

for you and for me... to ever believe...

that we... were made to be perfect

-and I'm far from perfect

if I... could meet that person...

who I'd wanna be...

Than worlds would collide-

we'd all collide

together... as one

ONE...

(instrumental solo)

if I wasn't fascinated by what I've created

I don't think I could see a reason...

for you and for me... to ever believe...

that we... were made to be perfect

-and I'm far from perfect

if I... could meet that person...

who I'd wanna be...

Than worlds would collide-

we'd all collide

together... as one

ONE...

Stay

Well, I... I want you- to be happy... No matter what

But I'm not- really sure... what you want

Well, I want you here with me!

No matter what... I want you here with me!

 

(pre-chorus)

Would you to stay... one more day

Would you to stay... one more day

...and another one again tomorrow

...and another one again tomorrow

...and another one again tomorrow

Would you stay?  

...one more day

(Chorus)

If I could make you a map of my mind,

would you travel far and wide to find

the way to my heart?

 

(verse 2)

I... know I- can be happy... No matter what

But you're not- really sure... what you want

Mmm... you can have it with me!

No matter what... You can have it with me!

(pre-chorus)

Would you to stay... one more day

Would you to stay... one more day

...and another one again tomorrow

...and another one again tomorrow

...and another one again tomorrow

Would you stay?  

 

(bridge)

This universe is a dark lonesome space

and it- takes a lifetime to learn your place

while you're- always looking for somebody else

well, just be you... I don't want nobody else

'Cause you have always wanted to be is-

EXACTLY who you are to me

well, baby don't change...

don't go away...

(pre-chorus)

Would you to stay... one more day

Would you to stay... one more day

...and another one again tomorrow

...and another one again tomorrow

...and another one again tomorrow

Would you stay?  

...one more day

(Chorus)

If I could make you a map of my mind,

would you travel far and wide to find

the way to my heart?

...and another one again tomorrow

The Truth

Sometimes, I'd like to walk away... and start all over- 

But I dont' know how

'Cause I don't think... That's the way that this happens- This time

No, I don't

And I can't explain... You think that this is impossible- But I don't

Oh, I know

That the truth... Is hard to swallow-

And we don't know how things should be...

 

(CHORUS)

It's just how we move along

There ain't no rhyme or reason... for this song

It's just how our lives move along

So, Baby, please... don't you be cross with me

Oh, Baby, I won't hold it against you- if you have to live your life

But Baby, come home... when your adventures are done

...and I will be here

waiting on you, 

waiting on me...

waiting on you- waiting on me... waiting you, la ra la ra la ra la ra la ra...

 

Then I- got turned around again

Thought down was up... and up was down

But I'm not afraid anymore of feeling lost

It's just how it oughta be... waiting on you, waiting on me

And I don't mind taking my time down this road

Though it might be painful... I trust in it

...For today was once tomorrow, and soon again will be yesterday

 

(REPEAT CHORUS)

 

...Though your eyes may go wandering- 

always leave your heart at home with me...

Until you're ready... ready... ready for me...

When you're ready.

Pictures

(verse 1)

I don't know... what you've heard about me

What you might have been told... about me

No, I don't know... what you might have read

or what somebody said... about me

(pre-chorus)

But there are pictures hanging... on my wall

and I don't need no words... those pictures say it all

They way that you're looking at me when I'm- looking away

The smile that's on your face... it puts your heart out on display

(chorus)

But baby what you don't know... what you don't see... 

is you've been waiting on me... for all of history~

Through the sands of time, I've been making you mine

Making you mine... for all of time... 

I've been making you mine

 

(verse 2)

They don't know... how you make me feel

or what my words reveal- about me

No, they don't know... about the times we've shared

They don't know how much you care... about me

(pre-chorus)

But there are pictures hanging... on my wall

and I don't need no words... those pictures say it all

They way that you're looking at me when I'm- looking away

The smile that's on your face... it puts your heart out on display

(chorus)

But baby what you don't know... what you don't see... 

is you've been waiting on me... for all of history~

Through the sands of time, I've been making you mine

Making you mine... for all of time... 

I've been making you mine

 

(bridge)

Your heart speaks softly... and others they couldn't hear

While you were trying hard... to make your intentions clear

You couldn't find a way... to let your heart express

You had a stamp and a letter, but the wrong address...

(chorus)

But baby, you didn't know... Baby, you couldn't see... 

you've been waiting on me... for all of history~

Through the sands of time, I've been making you mine

Making you mine... for all of time... 

I've been making you mine

BEtter

You don't know- where I've been

But I know... It's not as good-

As where we're going... together- together

 

Well, I've been waiting, this whole long lonely lifetime to meet you

-and now I see- it was worth the weight

of the world... on my shoulders... mmm...

 

*But I'm not well, you can clearly see

I know you deserve someone better than me

I wanna be better...

But I can't understand, how I could ever recommend

that we should take some time apart for a while

-and I can't comprehend, how I could ever make amends

there's nothing I wouldn't give to see you smile- again

 

I could wait for a moment, if you could spend this life with me

But will you remember how we wanted it to be

Look into your heart and you may find

the way to break these ties that bind....... me

 

REPEAT *

I wanna see you smile... again
