Track Name: Good To Be Here
I woke up to an unfamiliar ceiling
'Look who's back' I saw the doctor smile
Careful, we almost thought we lost you for a while
'Cecilia' was the last thing I remember
On the radio of the overturned car
How long have I been here
I can't feel a thing but I think I'm all right

It's good to be here
It's good to be right where I belong
So good to be here
Good to be gone

I saw the ones I left behind me
In a lullaby town with the sun in their eyes
And I knew I had to make it out of here sometime
Now I'm awake in the city of the future
We gather on the platform with hope in our eyes
And I know why I came here
And it's good, it's good
For once in my life

It's good to be here
It's good to be right where I belong
So good to be here
Good to be gone

Sometimes it takes a shock to shake you from a deep sleep
Now I know what I wanted to say

It's good to be here
It's good to be right where I belong
So good to be here
Good to be gone
Track Name: A Girl Like You
Pardon me I know it's rude
But I couldn't help but stare at you
I never saw such a lovely view
How do I get a girl like you

Hang on baby let me please explain
All I've seen today is clouds and rain
But when you smiled at me
The sun broke through
How do I get
A girl like you

We may be be strangers
But maybe we could be friends
And I can't walk away
Wondering what might have been

Normally I wouldn't make a move
But I'm feeling something strong for you
Won't you tell me you feel it to
Baby how do I get a girl like you

We may be be strangers
But maybe we could be friends
And I can't walk away
Wondering what might have been

So tell your sister you got things to do
Tell your manager you caught the flu
Tell your boyfriend you met someone new
Tell me I got a girl just like you
Track Name: Words Fail
Why’d you have to write me
All those expensive words
That made me forget those things I’d learned
I wish I could believe you
But baby they’re only words
Never mind all those things you thought you heard

But I’m still calling out to you
Still hoping I’ll get through
But sometimes words fail
Even when they’re true

Finally started listening
To the space in between your words
That place where the meanings begin to blur

So tell me what you’re thinking
If it takes a thousand words
And let’s hope the feelings begin to stir

But I’m still calling out to you
Still hoping I’ll get through
But sometimes words fail
Even when they’re true

I just want to see
Someone smiling back at me
I just want to see
Someone smiling back at me
I just want to see
You smiling back at me
Track Name: Avalon
They say you know in the first seven minutes
But somehow you just couldn’t admit it
We fought till the end
But I’m not going through this again

But every time you break down I know it
Even though you try hard not to show it
You’re drifting away
I can’t believe you’re gonna make me beg you to stay

Avalon
I wish I knew what side you’re on
Wondering if you’d ever recall
The good things
But sometimes the good things go wrong
Avalon

I never knew why you chose to love me
Never said much about what was coming
Just show me a sign
Sometime when your judgment’s not drowning in wine

Avalon
Wish I knew what side you’re on
Wondering if you’d ever recall
The good things
But sometimes the good things go wrong

Yeah I’ve been predicting a change in the weather
But I know I can’t breathe in this atmosphere
Every time we say goodbye the air seemed to clear

I hope you find what you believe in
I hope it gets easier to listen
And I wish you the best
Before I put your pictures in a box like the rest

Avalon
Wish I knew what side you’re on
Wondering if you’d ever recall
The good things
But sometimes the good things go wrong
And sometimes we just don’t belong
Avalon
Track Name: Every Heart Will Break
why be so upset
just 'cause nothing came of it
why would you expect more than this?

even heroes fail
even empires crumble
dreams are far more frail and fragile

every heart will break
every dream will end in waking
no mistaking dream for real
every heart will break
every heart will break

so it always was
so it always will be
with all we have we still want more
what would be enough?
what would leave you satisfied?
what is all this precious longing for?

every heart will break
every start contains an end
we pretend it's not that way
but every heart will break
every heart will break
every heart will break

so deceive yourself
even love...
