Track Name: Already Gone
I could leave you in the morning
I could leave you in the night
I could leave you at high noon
Or I could leave you in the moonlight

I could leave you in the summer
When the leaves all fall
I could leave you in the spring
When the snow is gone

But I will never leave you
No matter what I say
No I could never leave you
Because you never stayed

I could leave you in the alley
Of any lonely bar
I could leave you like a dog
In the back seat of my car

I could leave you in your bedroom
I could leave you in the hall
I could leave you lost and wandering
The worlds biggest mall

But I could never leave you
No matter how I try
No I could never leave you
Because you’ve already said goodbye


No I will never you
No matter what I sing in song
No I will never leave you
Cuz you’re already gone
Track Name: The One For Me
Time
It tumbles like a stream
It looks the same but it’s always changing

Time
Means little to me
We found eachother so we’ll keep on floating

When I was young
With wide open eyes
I never believed that
You’d be by my side

But you needed me
And I needed you
Who needs the facts
When we both know the truth

If I could do over
I’d do it over and over again
Go back to the start
Cut to the chase and give you my heart

You’re the one
You’re the one
You’re the one for me

I can see I can see

You’re the one
You’re the one
You’re the one for me

So come right here, stay with me


On top of a mountain
With so much to say
We can save our words for another day
What matters the most
Our hearts found a home
When we walk together
We’re never alone

I’m no longer young
With eyes open wide
But i'm still in awe to have you stand by my side
We don’t own tomorrow
Can’t see round the bend
Who needs the facts
When we can pretend

And when we’re haunting
Deep in the garden of forking paths
I know where we stand
I close my eyes as you take my hand


You’re the one
You’re the one
You’re the one for me

I can see I can see

You’re the one
You’re the one
You’re the one for me

So come right here, stay with me
Track Name: To Fall In Love
It's not hard to fall in love
if you want to fall in love, if it's what you want
Track Name: Forever Now
You’re the cloud in the sky
When I’m feeling blue
When it’s raining hard
You’re the morning dew

I’m a workhorse
You’re the jockey’s shoe
If you stick with me then I’ll stick with you

If you’re the entourage
of airforce one
Then I’m the blank bullet in the loaded gun

And if we’re dinner
You’d be an oil fondue
I was just raw meat til I met you

When I’m a religion
You’ll be my secret sect
You can do the things that I might regret

From now til forever
Forever now
From now til forever
Forever now

And if I’m an author
Then you’re misery
And at the end of the day, you’re good for me

Oh through comedy or tragedy
I’ll stick with you if you stick with me

You’re the dog-eared page
Of my open book
The story's old but It’s worth a look

And if you’re a story and I’m the news
Nothing I say should be taken as true

From now til forever
Forever now
From now til forever
Forever now
You’re the cloud in the sky
When I’m feeling blue
If you stick with me,
then I’ll stick with you.
