Track Name: Morning Light
I've seen that look before tonight
Underneath those tearstained diamonds in your eyes
It tells me that you're all right
Such a harmful little line

I know you're scared I won't like what you're saying
And I'll just head for the door, no delaying

If I said that I love you
What makes you think that I'll stop soon
So just speak your mind
I'm by your side
You'll see I'm right, by the time that you and I can see the morning light

Now I'm man with his good foot stuck in Neverland
No steady job or a home with a yard, and damn the ten year plan
But I think you kind of like the whole world wrapped up on our own shoestring
We can trade in if you prefer a good ol' fashion ring

You've got to let me know what you think about this
If you want me to go and change something about it

If you said that you love me
Well I'd hold nothing higher above me
So just speak your mind
I'm by your side
You'll be alright, by the time that you and I can see the morning light

So catch your breath and take your time
Common let's stay in and get it all out tonight
Cause nothing hurts or cuts you up inside
Like saying you're just fine

If you won't open your lips then I'll kiss them
And wait as long as it takes to listen

If I said that I love you
What makes you think that I'll stop soon
So just speak your mind
I'm by your side
You'll see I'm right, by the time that you and I can see the morning light
Track Name: The Last Song
Looking at pictures, lying in my bed, nobody but me
Floating on memories, drifting in a sea of self-pity
Your look in the picture tells me not to worry, says "I'm yours baby"
Yeah right, I'm eating my own lies, cause I know the your brown eyes no longer see me

I can't believe that I'm still thinking about you
And I'm fighting my emotions, I know they're still true
And I can't even get it to tell you I miss you

Oh, who knows how long I'll wait for you?
Cause I've been waiting for you now for oh so long
Who knows how long till I get over you?
Let me go, you don't even notice how I'm in your control

Where did you go to, why did you leave me? Guess I'll never know
Yeah right, I know why, but I'd rather lie and pretend the reason is still unknown
Why don't you do me a favor and next time you see me
Let's not talk about all of our new things or flings
I don't want to know about the new you
Just you from the past, and what we had

I can't believe that I'm still writing about you
And I'm fighting my emotions, I know they're still true
And I can't even get it to tell you I miss you

Oh, who knows how long I'll wait for you?
Cause I've been waiting for you for oh so long
Who knows how long till I get over you?
Let me go, you don't even notice that I'm in your control
Oh, you're killing me slowly, got me feeling like shit, I'm straight missing you

I hope you like this song
Cause it's the last one I'll ever write for you
Never hurt again, never gonna be my friend, I tell you baby girl this is the end
It's the last song I'll ever write for you

It's the last song I'll ever write for you
Yes it's the last song for you
Track Name: Ed's Wood
I've got a picture of the girl next door
She's been married seven times before
But I love her, oh yeah I love her

I said I love you and she said your funny
She said you know that trees don't grow on money
That's why I love her, yes I love her!

I want to rock her and roll her and take all control of her
Tell her that's the way it could be with me
I want to wind it and grind it and spend all of my time with
Tell her that I love her cause that's the way it's meant to be!

She said the thing about that is that it isn't this
And I said that's true, but the content was missing from your anecdote
(The content was missing from your story)
But I don't care
(But you never bore me)
I still love it, I love every second
(Love it, I love it, I love it, whoa!)

I want to wind it and grind it and take it from behind
Tell her that's the way it could be with me
I want to rock and her and roll her and take all control of
Tell her that I love her cause that's the way it's meant to be!
Track Name: Zanadu
Well I remember, all the chaos coming from my neighbors garage
Rockin' to it with my brother on air guitars
We heard our city's sound on 107 the end
And then I'd see it in free concerts with all my friends
Life wasn't over-produced
We played our music loud and rode through town on skateboards to school
Our clothes weren't nice; we wore them anyways
They turned Nirvana into muzak at the Bon Marche'

(Chorus)
Give me a Zanadu books or a Cellophane Square
Go to Rudy's on the AVE and cut your bright orange hair
I want to love and live like I did back then
But all good things must come to an end

Nothing better than listening to the sounds of Eddie Vedder
While you're sitting in your in mid november
Just to stay out of the nasty winter weather
While you're munching on a Dick's Deluxe with cheddar
They used to call us AVE Rats
Until the rest of the country turned us into a fad
they modeled junkies wearing flannels and playing a didge
Back when you could go bowling in U-Village

(Chorus)

It seems that I have lost a friend
So I go to the Duchess and I reminisce about

(Chorus)
