Track Name: Oh Yeah
What a funny feeling to wake up in the morning
When someone started sailing, sailing for the mainland
On a sunny day
Coast is clear
Never thought I’d feel you so near

Peeling back a quarter
Pulling all the rind off
Right down to the center
Sweet as any nectar

Savor every piece
That I could
Never knew strange fruit
Could taste so good

Barely had a moment
Feeling for the time now
Everything is slowed down
Everything is fine now

On a sunny day
Waters clear
California sky
Love is near

Oh yeah
Track Name: Pretty Soldiers
Fly away pretty soldiers
We’re gonna have some fun without you
Drive away pretty soldiers
We’re gonna get things done without you

Cause you’re always on our backs
Talkin’ about attacks
And we just want to relax
And have us a good time

Night and Day dirty boulders
No one toils away like you do
Comin’ back it’ll be colder
Nothing much to miss

Cause you always did believe
That we just wanted to be
Knee deep in the good life
And you just want to live one day though

Dads carried you on their shoulders
Memories are such bliss
Now worry has left him older
Remembering the last kiss

And he’ll never feel relief
Til’ you’re between cotton sheets
And you always did believe
Now you just want to live one day through

Just want to float
Alone on stream
Alone in my head
Just want to be free
Just want to be with you
Just want to live one day through
Track Name: I'm the Teacher
Are there any volunteers
I don’t see any volunteers
I’m gonna have to call on someone
Who hasn’t raised their hand

I’m the teacher
I’m the teacher
Giving you my everything
Giving you my all
Don’t blame the teacher
You might need her
Giving you her everything
Giving you her all

I’m the teacher
Yes I’m the teacher
Giving you my everything
Giving you my all
Don’t blame the teacher
You might need her
Giving you her everything
Catch you when you fall

There’s a matter of importance
A disturbance out there in the hall

It won’t help to look down
Or fidget with your pencil
It won’t work to look away
I know all the tricks

I’m the teacher….
Track Name: Little Duck
Silent night
Say goodnight
One more time
For the last time

Little duck
Wish you luck
May you have pluck
All the time

You’ll be pretty when you’re all grown up
You’ll be pretty but you're acting tough
When I want to hold your hand
But you’re all grown up

Then you’ll walk
Then you’ll talk
Blackboard and chalk
For the first time

It’s a pity but we all grow up
It’s a pity but you have to be tough
I hope you’ll understand
When you’re old enough
Track Name: Only Apart
You put your feet up on chairs
Where are you now
I always knew you were there
Where are you now
You always had my attention
Where is it now
Keeping me in suspension
Where are you now

Never near or far
Only where you are
Never near or far
Only apart

I search for you in the a.m.
The p.m. too
I thought you would always be staying
Now I look for you
The little things so annoying
Like the aforementioned shoes
On the chair you’re destroying
I call a truce

I love the way your shirt was open
and you stared into the sky
and tossed your head back and the hair out of
your eyes
I keep forgetting to remember
that I never should forget
Another day another night I might regret
Track Name: Karen
She’s new in town
Got a pretty face
She’s new in town
Got her own nice place
Walking around
Thinking she’s so grand
Making friends
It’s more than I can stand

I’d like to introduce myself to Karen
Then I can explain why I’ve been starin’
Just let me introduce myself to Karen
Cuz that’s my husbands sweater she’s wearin’

They say don’t judge a book by its cover
But what if the book took away your love
Her hair is straight
Must take a lot of work
For all the nights
She’s spending with that jerk
Track Name: Why We All Believe
Hear me I only need a moment of your time
There’s less to hate and more to love
They hold you close when your heart breaks
Forgive when you need grace
Live every moment for your face
And that is why we all believe

in you

Warm words heard from near or far
Always there wherever you are
A smile never deceiving
Touch only relieving
Listen to your breathing
And that is why we all believe

in you
Track Name: Paparazzi
Why did the paparazzi have to ruin my life?
I’ve had enough of all this signature signing
I wish the cameras weren’t allowed where I’m dining
I wanted to remain anonymous
While I dine with my D&G skirt on

Why did the paparazzi have to ruin my life


When you’ve got celebrity status
Celebrity status has you
I didn’t ask for celebrity status
Now what am I supposed to do

I hope the lord above can see how I paid the price
When you were learning how to play
How I played my part
You had a broken toy
Well I had a broken heart

I wanted to remain anonymous
While I flirt with my D&G skirt on
I hope the lord above can see how I paid the price
Track Name: College Girl
Look everybody its me
Look at the way I pour my syrup
Finish up the morning meal
Got my backpack on
I’m going to Europe

Look everybody its me
Grab the reigns
Foot in the stirrup
Riding into the sun
Got my backpack on
I’m going to Europe

Thinks its time I went on an adventure
Think its time I flew the coop
Momma and Papa I’ll see you in a could of months
When I need the money
Bring back my new honey

Tired of the way they divide you up
Tired of the way you get used to rejection
Don’t want to follow all the sheep
Cuz you’re gonna need more than wool for protection

Thinks its time I went on an adventure
Think its time I flew the coop
Momma and Papa I’ll see you in a could of months
When I need the money
Bring back my new honey

Cuz its cold outside
And I don’t want to have to put my coat on
Its cold outside
And I’d rather die than do as I am told

La la la

Well what happened after I left
What happened after I went to Europe?
Call it money well spent
Cuz you got to hit bottom and pull
Yourself clear up

Thinks its time I came home from my adventure
Need a little time to regroup
Momma and Papa I’ll see you as soon as I can
Isn’t it funny
I missed you more than money

Cuz it’s cold outside
With no one around to tell you to put your coat on
Yeah it’s cold outside
And I want to live until I’m really old

La la la

I’m just a college girl to you
Track Name: Eye Level
Baby won’t you come down to my eye level
Maybe you would come round
And I’ll put on the kettle

Don’t think twice
Never let me go

Baby I’m not gonna be some kind of devil
Baby won’t you come down to my eye level

Don’t think twice
Never let you go
