Track Name: Just The Beginning
Verse: It's just the beginning for you my friend/ And already we're worried 'bout the end
Asking what's gonna happen, will this all come crashing down/ Be careful not to miss all the beauty around, right now (repeat)

Chorus: The future is only one minute away/ We need not be afraid
Forever is just 'til the end of the day/ The love it will never fade away

Verse: What if I need adventure, we ask with furled brow/ There's a thrill that surrounds us here and now
We just long to be happy, to make something of ourselves/ Just let go of the fear and you might break the spell, break the spell

Chorus


Bridge: Don't get lost inside the mind's fear/ Be right here (repeat)

Verse: Ooh 'cause it's just the beginning for you my friend/ There's no need to be worried about the end
Don't ask what's gonna happen when this all is said and done/This moment is the truth, it's the only one, only one

Chorus
Track Name: Sunny Sunny
Verse: Danny came a-running for me to the top of the hill/ Carrying his briefcase and umbrella, and I couldn't stand still
I said let's get you out of that suit, let's get you out of that tie/ Let's blow this popsicle stand and find someplace dry you and I
He sang...

Chorus: Rain rain go away, come again another day/ Nevermind don't come after me, I live my life sunny, sunny, sunny-sunny (repeat)

Verse: Danny left the office for good and now he can feel his heart once more/ Maybe we should celebrate and do something we've never done before
So we went in a hot air balloon and we burned all his corporate clothes/ Now the future's wide open for Danny & me, let's see where we go
I sing...

Chorus

Bridge: Now Danny & I know life can be funny/ And it can really suck when you don't have much money
But if you use your mind and your heart and your art/ To keep the cruel world at bay then that's a good start for a sunny day

Chorus

Bridge

Chorus
Track Name: I Can Wait
Verse: I can wait, I can wait/ I am always waiting
I am always waiting/ Because I'm always strong
I am strong, I am strong/ I am strong enough for you
Strong enough to wait for you to be/ Strong enough for me

Chorus: We are broken, beautiful and broken/ And you have your time and I surely have mine
Life is messy, love is an ocean/ I am treading water and waiting on the line
I am treading water and waiting on the line

Verse: I am still, I am still/ I'm remaining still
I'm remaining still to keep my clarity
I am clear, I am clear/ I am clear on my love for you darling
You will never know how much you mean to me

Chorus: We are broken, beautiful and broken/ And you have your time and I surely have mine
Life is messy, love is an ocean/ Climb into my vessel and we'll be just fine
Climb into my vessel and we'll be just fine

Bridge: We'll be fine, we'll be fine (repeat)

Chorus: We are broken, beautiful and broken/ And you have your time and I surely have mine
Life is messy, love is an ocean/ I am treading water and waiting on the line
I am treading water and waiting on the line
So climb into my vessel and we'll be just fine
Track Name: Got Me Good
Verse: I heard someone ring the bell and my heart skipped a beat/ I knew she was coming for me
I tried so hard to stay so strong but I couldn't stay that way too long
Because my hands that give just don't know how to stay that cold
So I better pack up and steal away before I fold

Chorus: Someone told me once that once you take love's hand/ You will never return to the way that you were
I am under her spell, never again/ Will my heart be a stone, even when I'm alone
Love got me good, love got me good

Verse: She always leaves me something at the door/ when I'm not home or I'm alone
And what awaits me in that deadly treat at my feet/ It chills me to the bone
Because my heart that yearns just refuses to stay at bay/ So I bring her little potion to my lips and eagerly drink away, drink away

Chorus

Pre-Chorus: She comes and goes when she fancies, nevermind whether I'm ready/ Never hesitates to go or stay

Chorus

...Love got me good, love got me good, oooh...
