Track Name: Nothing Left To Lose
Wake me up when all of this is over
I don’t care, don’t give a damn anymore
Gave it all I had, and now there’s nothing left to add
Just that I’ve gone as far as I can go, gone as far as I can go

Now I’ve got nothing, nothing left to lose
Yeah, I’ve got nothing, nothing left to lose anymore

I won’t back down, won’t stick around, won’t let you get the best of me
I’m cutting loose, won’t let myself be your excuse
Call me a fool, and maybe I am, but I’ll take my chances
Leaving all this pain behind, break the chains that bind and hold you down

Now I’ve got nothing, nothing left to lose
Yeah, I’ve got nothing, nothing left to lose anymore

People love to look at all the pretty broken pieces on the floor
And I’m sure when I say that no one’s going to pick them up
No one’s going to pick them up but you

Now I’ve got nothing, nothing left to lose
Yeah, I’ve got nothing, nothing left to lose anymore
Track Name: Morning In New York
Early mornings in the city sing of hope and beauty
The sun begins to rise, the Hudson shines with promise around me
Mornings in New York are always quite like this
But people move so fast, they miss the little things
It’s so nice to take a look around and soak it all in

Morning in New York, morning in New York
There’s no where in the world I’d rather be than New York City

Downtown comes to life, the buzz of last night’s stories fill the air
The Yankees won, the Mets are done, but that’s the way things run here
The headlines read of stocks and trade
The market’s ebb and flow is frayed
The experts say that they’re afraid
But experts change their mind’s each day
Every walk of life in intertwined
The hipsters, suits and brokers wives are on their way to nine to five’s
When lunchtime comes they pack the local dives

Morning in New York, morning in New York
There’s no where in the world I’d rather be than New York City

Vendors on the street are found about every fifteen feet
The smell of fresh brewed coffee coming from the deli on the corner
Musicians on the train play to passengers in vain
Always on the move, always constant change
The norm to the offbeat make it feel complete
The city never sleeps, makes every other place seem so obsolete

Morning in New York, Morning in New York
There’s no where in the world I’d rather be than New York City
Track Name: Everything Is Going To Be Alright
The sun is shining down upon the endless road
The valleys stretching out before my eyes unfold
As the cool wind rushed through my hair, through my soul
And we’re just driving on until we lose control

And I don’t need, I don’t need…
I don’t need, I don’t need anything at all
‘Cause I know everything is going to be alright
All I need is you to get me through the night

I long to go, begin the urge that’s in my skin
Take me where it will around a corner, passed a bend
Whatever comes our way, we’ll see it to the end

And I don’t need, I don’t need…
I don’t need, I don’t need anything at all
‘Cause I know everything is going to be alright
All I need is you to get me through the night
Might cost you your love, might just mean your life
But I know everything is gonna be alright

And I don’t need, I don’t need…
I don’t need, I don’t need anything at all

‘Cause I know everything is going to be alright
All I need is you to get me through the night
Might cost you your love, might just mean your life
But I know everything is gonna be alright
Track Name: Be Here Without You
Feel a bit lonely, but I don’t know why
No, I don’t know why I feel this way
After all, you said you would leave me
And I should have listened, I should have listened to what you were saying
Now I see how it’s going to be, all alone here, no one but me
Now I know, oh yes I know that I should have never taken you for granted

And I don’t want to be here without you
No, I don’t want to go on without you

Sometimes I find my mind wanders, wondering what went wrong
And how I long for a chance to make things right
Sleepless night after night I get out of bed, try to clear my head
But I’m always awake to see the light
Now I’m tired, and I feel the cost of my foolish ways and the love that I’ve lost
And I wish it all was a dream, but everything’s as true as it seems

And I don’t want to be here without you
No, I don’t want to go on without you, oh

Oh, I’m so confused, thought I’d be fine but now I don’t know what I will do
If I don’t see you walk back through the door
But I know you’re not coming back anymore

And I don’t want to be here without you
No, I don’t want to be here without you
No, I don’t want to be here without you, no, no
Track Name: Stranded
She’s a crazy lady who loves a thrill
Out every night with a different man picking up the bill
She gets what she wants using what she’s got - looks that kill
There’s not a man that met her don’t love her still
I took her out last Friday night
A five-star restaurant, lobster dinner, and a hundred-fifty dollar bottle of wine
Took her home, thought I’d sealed the deal, and I was standing tall
Then she kissed me on the cheek and said she’s give me a call
Haven’t heard from her...waiting by the phone

Now I’m stranded, stranded - stuck in the middle of love
Got me running around, looking like a fool, falling all over myself
And I’m standing, standing with my hand in the middle of love
Grasping blindly for a line to grab and hold, so I’m not standing here alone

I can’t believe I got the run-around again
Usually I wouldn’t care, but this is wrong, it isn’t fair - ‘cause I can’t get her off my mind
She won’t return my e-mail’s, she won’t return my calls
I’m getting the feeling that I won’t see her at all
Waiting by the phone...sitting all alone

Now I’m stranded, stranded - stuck in the middle of love
Got me running around, looking like a fool, falling all over myself
And I’m standing, standing with my hand in the middle of love
Grasping blindly for a line to grab and hold, so I’m not standing here alone

I’m waiting for you girl, wondering what went wrong
Was it something that I said to turn you off?
Or did you use me like so many guys before
To get what you want and then close the door
Well, my days of being used are over now I’m sure
You’re a whore, but I love you

Now I’m stranded, stranded - stuck in the middle of love
Got me running around, looking like a fool, falling all over myself
And I’m standing, standing with my hand in the middle of love
Grasping blindly for a line to grab and hold, so I’m not standing here alone
Grasping blindly for a line to grab and hold, so I’m not standing here alone
Track Name: Tell Me Why
I was wondering to myself, what is right and what is wrong
I’ve been asking for so long
What’s the line? Where is it drawn?
The great divide that split’s the sides has been deceptive all along

Tell me why, oh, tell me why is the answer so unclear?
Was the meaning obscured out of fear?
I don’t know, but I’ve got to try
To clarify the question, someone tell me why

The desperation that will drive people to cling to a lie is inspiration to survive
It all depends on where you stand
Are you an animal or man? Someone help me understand

Tell me why, oh, tell me why is the answer so unclear?
Was the meaning obscured out of fear?
I don’t know, but I’ve got to try
To clarify the question, someone tell me why

Do I just misunderstand? Have I misjudged what’s been planned
Is my perception even real? Can I even think or feel?
Undermined by old ideals, from self-serving men were born
An epidemic that eventually becomes the social norm

Tell me why, oh, tell me why
Track Name: Falling Down
Let me break this to you now, doesn’t matter anyhow
I’m not listening to a word you say
Another night, fill the space, same old story, different place
This is all I know, there’s no other way
I don’t want to hear you say how much you care, save the cliché
It really doesn’t matter much to me
So hear me out, take this in, don’t care you think that it’s a sin, It is what it is, so let it be

Don’t you cry over me
Don’t you cry

Down, falling down, I’m addicted to you now
Down, falling down, I just can’t quit you now, I’m falling down

How could I ever explain the fire burning through my veins
A fire that I just can’t contain
I know you think that I’m insane, think I’m throwing it all away
And now you’re looking for someone to blame

Don’t you cry over me
Don’t you cry

Down, falling down, I’m addicted to you now
Down, falling down, I just can’t quit you now,
Down, falling down, I just can’t quit you now
Down, falling down, falling down

Think it’s gotten out of hand, didn’t turn out how I planned
Tomorrow I’ll be on my way again… I just can’t quit, I need a fix, just one more night, one last hit, one last time and I promise it’s the end…It’s the end.
Track Name: Lafayette
Good old frank’s behind the bar, it’s been a quiet night so far
But he knows that the boys are on their way
Pours a pint for Mr. Mills, then he fires up the grill
It’s Monday night, and Monday’s usually run late

A couple slow dance and romance each other to the sound of the band at the open jam
My Funny Valentine the trumpet softly sings
A few musicians sit and listen, waiting in the wings, they’re waiting

Lafayette, you can’t forget, it’s where I want to be tonight
With the boys down at the bar, we’ll have some fun, gonna party hard on Lafayette

Twelve o’clock the boys arrive, Dan the man, BK and I,
Geronimo and Spunky start to buy the rounds
That once quiet night is now filled with the sound of voices come alive
They really thrive and go around, and then they lock the doors, light up the cigarettes
Preparing for a night that they won’t soon forget
But wait until that whisky hits their heads

Lafayette, you can’t forget, it’s where I want to be tonight
With the boys down at the bar, we’ll have some fun, gonna party hard on Lafayette

Dan the man, a sailor with a skull cap on his head,
He’s always wide awake while you are in your bed
Makes everybody laugh at something Spunky said
Probably from some essay Nietzsche wrote that he had read

Discussing anything and everything
Drunkenly philosophizing on the meaning of it all
Who was better, John or Paul?
Looking for a common ground, stay until they close the place down

Lafayette, you can’t forget, it’s where I want to be tonight
With the boys down at the bar, we’ll have some fun, gonna party hard on Lafayette
Track Name: All For You
When I look at you, I can’t believe that I have found
Someone who’s so perfect for me, a connection so profound
I never thought, I didn’t believe it could be true
There was a person out there as wonderful as you
Now I know better than I did before
Because baby I adore you
And if you agree, I’ll spend my life trying to be
As perfect for you as you are for me

Don’t you know that I’d do anything for you
I would give it all up, there’s nothing I won’t do
Don’t you know that it’s true, hope you know that it’s true
It’s all for you

There's nothing you and I can't face together
Cloudy skies, windswept seas of stormy weather
Even when things seem like they're going to fall apart
We always find the heart to start all over again

Through every high, every low - every day we're learning as we go
It's the only way to grow
And I want to show - need you to know
That nothing's ever going to change the way I feel about you now

Don’t you know that I’d do anything for you
I would give it all up, there’s nothing I won’t do
Don’t you know that it’s true, hope you know that it’s true
It’s all for you

You are the one that I run to when I need a friend, when I’m on the mend
Yeah, you are the one, and I need you to be here in my arms, to hold you until the end
Don’t you know that it’s true, hope you know that it’s true

Don’t you know that I’d do anything for you
I would give it all up, there’s nothing I won’t do
Don’t you know that it’s true, hope you know that it’s true
Track Name: Hold On
Patiently waiting for your turn
Thinking it all through, hoping that you’ve learned
So when the moment arrives you’ll know for sure that luck is on your side

You’ve got to hold on just a little longer
Hold on, and then you make your move
Hold on just a little longer
Hold on, yeah

Swift and precise as a painters brush your plans unfold; rehearsed, controlled
Feel the rush as the wheels spin wildly round, watch them fold
Play them like a pawn, lead them like a fool, you know what to do
So many ways for you to win that it’s hard to lose
But one wrong move, yeah

You’ve got to hold on just a little longer
Hold on, and then you make your move
Hold on just a little longer
Hold on, yeah

Their disbelieving eyes tell you all you need to know
Take a look around and find it will keep you on your toes, ready to go

Hold on just a little longer
Hold on, and then you make your move
Hold on just a little longer
Hold on, yeah
