Track Name: Corner Of My Heart
I’m getting too old for promises
And dreams that I never can start
I’m just a little too tired of loving you baby
From this corner of my heart
But every time I try, I cannot find the ways to part
With the hope that you might find me in this corner of my heart

Corner of my heart
It was all that you would let me give to you
It was all I had left to take away

Maybe I should have known
That you would never wait as long as you thought
I guess that time just moves a little bit different
From this corner of my heart
But you called me with a whisper baby
And you begged me to come this far
Now you hand me an invitation to this corner of my heart

(Repeat chorus)
Track Name: Surrender To Me- Feat. Lawson Harris
Well I know you think you're safe and secure
And everything you ever wanted was yours
Well baby that may be true, but tell me what does it mean
When it's so late at night and honey you start to dream
You dream of the one thing that you've never seen

So baby lay down your arms
And surrender to me, yeah baby…surrender
Just surrender to me
Oh baby, surrender...just surrender to me
Surrender...just surrender to me
Yeah baby, surrender

Come on and give me a reason baby
Show me how you feel
Just a reason baby

Well it’s getting late, and we’ve both been here before
There’s no need to knock now baby, you just open the door
And maybe just for tonight you'll let me help you know
How to handle the one thing baby you've been reluctant to show
Cause, I’ve got you surrounded and there’s nowhere to go

(Repeat Chorus)
Track Name: Claudine
It was late, they were beautiful
Everybody hoping to see
Something rare, something wonderful
Someone more than they'd ever be
I was tired, I'd been turned around
I had taken too long to see
That I was searching for a miracle
In a temple where I could not believe
Ah, but that's when I saw Claudine
Oh, that's when I saw Claudine

She said, "How long have you been standing there
Now sit right down and tell me your name"
"I was lost for a while," I said
"But maybe you're the reason I came"
She just laughed, and as she smiled at me
She said,"It's best if we don't try to explain
Because I can see we've both been wrong before
Just take me someplace I've never been"
And then the night just dissolved to Claudine
Oh, the night just dissolved to Claudine

Claudine
Tell me I won't wake from a dream
If I should call your name...Claudine
If I should call your name...Claudine

Well, I'd been caught by an echo
And I'd been carried from the ground by a breeze
And though we both could see what Heaven was like
We never cleared the tops of the trees
"You've been so kind," she said,"But still I have to go
Though it seems you might just have what I need
But if you're sure that I'm what you've been waiting for
I'll tell you something else to believe...
Well, you can just wait some more for Claudine
Oh baby, just wait some more for Claudine"

Claudine
Tell me I won't wake from a dream
If I should call your name...Claudine
If I should call your name...Claudine
(Repeat Chorus)
Track Name: So Much More Than I Can say
If I wrote down a song for you
Now what would I say
Can the words that belong to you
Ever be found in a day
It's not that I'm lazy, it's not that I'm blind
You might think I'm crazy
But, I've just been taking my time
To paint you in flowers or in a room by the sea
Or maybe just close your eyes
And I'll try to sing you to sleep
Because I will remember
So much more than I can say

La la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la

Sometimes I wander
With nowhere to stay
Over the hills awhile
And then I land where I may
We followed the stars that night
And the moon on the sea
The morning was somewhere nearby
And you were somewhere near me
"Do you know where we're going"you said,
"And how long can we stay"
"It's not that I'm lost" I said,
"It's just that I'm finding my way"
But I will remember
So much more than I can say

(repeat chorus)
Track Name: Unlucky
My daddy's dog used to bite me when no one was looking
The neighbor kids used to pull my hair
And Santa Claus used to fly right past our chimney
Come Christmas morning there was nothing there
"It ain’t your fault boy, I read it in the Bible"
That's what my grandma used to say
"It’s just the truth boy, cause I ain’t one to libel
Some folks lives just come that way"

"Oh, you're just unlucky baby, that's what you are
It’s plain to see that you’re unlucky baby, from near and far"

I used to dream that someone could love me
I used to dream that life was fair
Til I was taught, that God above me
Well, he ain’t blind, he just don't care
So late one night while they was sleeping
I turned up the gas and walked away
I dropped a match as I was leaving
And I spoke those words my grandma said

"Oh, you're just unlucky, that's what you are
It’s plain see that you're unlucky, from near and far"
Track Name: She Was Everybody's Dream
She was everybody’s dream
At least that’s the way it seemed to me
We used to hide just to see her walk on by
Because she was everybody’s dream

Now we all heard her daddy was a colonel
Her momma died they said, when she was young
And on sunny days she’d lay flowers on her grave
She’d say herself a prayer, then head on home

If only I’d the chance to hold her
And carry all her troubles through the night
If she could only see, a place she’d never be
I think that things’d probl’y turned out right

Well, no one heard the shot that Sunday morning
She called the police herself the neighbors said
And there was nothing I could say when they took her away
They walked her to the car and she was gone

If only I’d the chance to hold her
And carry all her troubles through the night
If she could only see, a place she’d never be
I think that things’d probl’y turned out right

(Repeat 1st Verse)
Track Name: Peut-Être Ce Soir
C’est étrange, de te connaître sans t’avoir rencontrée
Inconnue tu arrives d’un lointain passé
Une chanson non enseignée
Pourtant je sais la jouer
A quoi ça sert de le dire
Puisque tu sais ce que je décris

Peut-être ce soir, montre moi ou nous allons
Parce que tout paraît bien, et nous sommes ici maintenant
Toi et moi ne trouvons pas notre trajet
Mais, peut-être juste pour ce soir nous pourrions y rester

C’est juste un rêve où nous marchons
Tu disparais sans un son
Chaque fois je pense que je t’ai perdue
Te voila ré-apparue
Quand je respire je sens ton cœur
A travers tes yeux je vois
C’est clair que t’as pas oublié
Quand ce moment est arrivé

Mais peut-être ce soir, montre moi ou nous allons
Parce que tout paraît bien, et nous sommes ici maintenant
Toi et moi ne trouvons pas notre trajet
Mais, peut-être juste pour ce soir nous pourrions y rester

Peut-être ce soir, peut-être ce soir
Peut-être juste pour ce soir nous pourrions y rester
Track Name: An Unfinished Portrait Of Marianne
There is a painter that I know
Who keeps her pictures locked away
She reveals her colors only shade by shade
She reveals an art that has no name
No name at all, no name

She is the kind that walked alone
Sometimes it's easier for her to be
But ever since the time she passed my way
She stopped and stayed a while with me
With me alone, with me

She stirs beside me in her sleep
In a restless dream she takes my hand
If I could only find the words to say
I'd paint your portrait Marianne
Marianne my love...
Track Name: With Your Love
If I could walk to the very edge of the world
And then I climbed to the top of every mountain I’d see
Well I know I know I know I'd never find
Another love like this

No, because with your love I don't wonder any more
Which way I should begin
And with your love
I don't need to search the whole world over
Because you’re here...yeah, my love is here

There ain't no secret, don't have that much to tell
But, one day when I wasn't looking
I saw you standing right there
And I swear knew I knew I knew just what I'd found
When I saw you smile

With your love I don't wonder any more
Which way I should begin
And with your love I don't need to search the whole world over
Because you’re here...yeah,our love is here
Track Name: I Discovered You
Some folks find diamonds in faraway hills
And gold in long forgotten streams
And I myself once crossed an ocean
Blindly searching for a dream
But sometimes treasures come and go
And all your hopes can run you through
And just when I thought I'd lost my reason to believe
Baby, that's when I discovered you

That's when I discovered you
Like a whisper on the wind
And when I found the place that echo first began
Baby, you taught me how to dream again

Sometimes a moment can haunt you baby
Sometimes your love is more like fear
You can turn away a thousand times
And close your eyes to what is near
Until there's nowhere left to go
And you find there's nothing new
It's just a circle we were following by heart
And baby that's where I discovered you

That's where I discovered you
Like a whisper on the wind
And when I found the place that echo first began
Baby, you taught me how to dream again

(Repeat Chorus)
Track Name: I Need You
I've got something on my mind
That scares me so much I could cry
I woke up this morning in your bed dear
And I realized I finally knew why

I'm like a stray dog that longs for a choker
The way a cyclone confuses the sky
How bad news can help to remind you
To get what you can before you die
That's how I need you baby, I need you

Now I've lived my life all alone dear
And it's easy to see why I've tried
Cuz sometimes what you never wanted baby
Is just what you need to get by

Now my daddy always said I was crazy
My momma always said I was sad
No one but you understands me
And no one's ever hurt me that bad
That's why I need you baby, I need you

I'm like a stray dog that longs for a choker
The way a cyclone confuses the sky
How bad news can help to remind you
To get what you can before you die
That's how I need you baby, I need you
Track Name: Meagan
It seems so long ago I used to sit and dream
Of a woman who could rescue me
And Meagan was her name
I was only 15 and she was five years more
The green eyed widow of a sailing man
Who never came to shore

Meagan played the violin
And painted pictures of the sky
And time would make no difference
As the days would pass us by
Meagan made no promises
She'd never seen one keep
She gave her love in solitude
And awaited what would be

And Meagan is a song to me
A lyric never heard
A harmony to live beside
That comes without a word
And though I'll never find her
She wanders in my dreams
I can hear her play on stormy days
Where the heather meets the sea
And Meagan plays for me...

I am now an older man
And I've seen more than my share
Of women who I'd hoped to love
But none was much like her
My first wife was an actress
Who left to see the world
The second was a debutante
Who got what she deserved

Now I'm looking back at innocence
And I'm looking back on dreams
I'm looking back where better days
Are never what they seemed
I'm looking back toward shadows
That were never really there
I'm looking back at Meagan
The wind is blowing through her hair

And Meagan is a song to me
A lyric never heard
A harmony to live beside
That comes without a word
And though I'll never find her
She wanders in my dreams
I can hear her play on stormy days
Where the heather meets the sea
And Meagan plays for me...
Track Name: Mr. Substitute Man
Nobody knows me
I'm not the girl that I'm supposed to be
Sit by my window and dream all day
Nobody ever heard a word I say
Oh, but you did when you looked my way
Mr. Substitute man...ohhh Mr. Substitute Man

I never learned what they told me
They couldn't teach what you showed me
Now I've got a secret that I can't tell
They'll try and take from me what they never felt
So I'll just keep our lesson plans to myself, Mr. Substitute Man
Ohhh, Mr. Substitute Man

I never wanted more than I just gave to you tonight
Is it all right
Make it all right
Won't you please, Mr. Substitute Man
Ohhh, Mr. Substitute Man

Do you want do you want do you want some candy
Do you want do you want do you want some candy

I never wanted more than I just gave to you tonight
Is it all right
Make it all right
Won't you please, Mr. Substitute man

Do you want do you want do you want some candy
Do you want do you want do you want some candy
Do you want do you want do you want some candy
Track Name: Jamie
The New Year had passed
Something found and someone lost
As Jamie headed homeward in the snow
Somehow he had taken the wrong direction
And wondered if he'd make it back again

And Jamie looked for company and Jamie trusted love
And Jamie walked in circles more than once
A trail of fond remembrance always led him
And followed him like footprints in the snow

Where are you going my lonely one
The moon has just begun to shine
Stop and look because we've both been here before
And we'll pass again

Jamie knew a woman once
Who collected fallen leaves
One for every lover she misplaced
And Jamie now remembered how he'd meant to tell her
That she'd never seen the forest for the leaves

Then Jamie laughed as he realized
That he was guilty of the same
He remembered every confidence time betrayed
In some ways he was searching for forgiveness
At the hand of each companion that he'd made

Now where are you going my lonely one
The moon has just begun to shine
Stop and look because we've both been here before
And we'll pass again
Track Name: I See You
Here you go again but I’m not playing
Or maybe I’ve just finally learned to be wise
Cause it was long ago that I leaned the difference
Now I don’t hold a grudge, I just open my eyes
And I see you, I remember who you are
And the things that you do
Yeah, I see you, I remember who you are
And the things that you do

And here we are, you and me
We’re goin’ round and round and round again
But something’s changed and you don’t see
I know this feels familiar but it’s not the same
Oh no no no,

Because I see you
I remember who you are
And the things that you do


Now I know some people might say that this ain't fair
"We’ve all been younger once. Why don’t you leave it right there"
But growing something older doesn’t make it new
And lookin’ out a different window doesn’t change the view
Oh no no no,

And now I see you
I remember who you are
And the things that you do


And here we are, you and me
We’re goin’ round and round and round again
But something’s changed still you don’t see
I know this feels familiar but it’s not the same
Oh no no no

Because I see you
I remember who you are and the things that you do
Yeah, I see you, I remember who you are
And the things that you do
Track Name: Maybe Tonight
I knew you long before I met you
Or, was it yesterday
Like a song that no one taught me
But I know exactly what to play
Well I could go on and on
But I know that I don't have to
Cause you already know what I would say

So maybe tonight,
You could show me where were going
Because everything feels right
And tomorrow we'll be gone
Now you and I may never find our way
But maybe just for tonight you and I could stay

It's just a dream that we've been walking
You disappear without a sound
And every time I think I lost you
You keep coming back around
And when I breathe I feel your heartbeat
When I look it's through your eyes
And I can see you still remember
When this moment first arrived

So maybe tonight,
You could show me where were going
Because everything feels right
And tomorrow we'll be gone
Now you and I may never find our way
But maybe just for tonight you and I could stay
Maybe tonight…maybe tonight
Maybe just for tonight you and I could stay
Track Name: Thoughts Of You
"Don't lean on me", she said," I can barely stand at all
I won't be there to comfort you every time I fall
I can't explain the darkness
And I don't know where I am
But you see me much too clearly now
And I don't want you looking in
There's nothing that you didn't do
There's nothing that you can say
Just pretend this never happened here
And safely go your way"

And I don't know if I love you
But I'm afraid that maybe I do
I just can't afford to lose myself
To thoughts of you
You

I thanked her for the warning
As she lay across my chest
She held on to me tightly
Like a drowning man at rest
I said,"I'm not looking for forever
I'm not looking for a friend
I'm not looking to lose my heart to you
Just misplace it once again
It's too late to turn backwards
It's too late to say goodnight
So wake up now it's morning dear
And I'm right here by your side"

And I don't know if I love you
But I'm afraid that maybe I do
And from time to time I lose myself
To thoughts of you
You
