Track Name: Mulvane Saddle Club
Didn't I see you cry every night
Clutching the phone with all of your might
Might have become if we had the time
Main Street will flood, close all the rides

When you're in love you do the craziest things
Wait by the phone, convinced that someone would ring
I was in love one time-it was easy and slow
Sure, I've been in love. How would I know?

Didn't I see you, love at first sight
Rodeo grounds, hot summer night
Standing alone by the Saddle Club sign
Hot funnel cakes, $3.99

When you're in love you do the craziest things
Wait by the phone, convinced that someone would ring
I was in love one time-it was easy and slow
Sure, I've been in love. How would I know?

Sure, you've been in love this time, How would I know?
Because I always...
Sure, you've been in love this time, How would I know?
Because I always...

Always in love, I do the craziest things
Wait by the phone, convinced that someone will ring
Now I'm able to keep from falling apart
Sure, I've been in love. It broke my heart.
Track Name: Temperature Rising
My world, lately
Is like Christmas without you.
It's cold and it's boring.
There's barely anything to do.

Hey New York City:
Did we forget to dream?
I'm getting lost among the buildings.
I'm getting stuck among the leaves.

Darling meet me on the slopes of Swope.
We'll tiptoe all across the tightest rope.
I still love your ways, I have no metaphors.
Everything you say - I couldn't love you more

Meet me on a summer night.
I will bring the moon, you bring the flashlight.
You could feel me pulling from the oceanside.
There'll be no emotion in your frozen eyes.

Baby won't you pull me like the moon to the water
Make someone a happier son or a daughter
Breathless is the way that you tell me story:
Don't make it so sad for me.

Baby won't you pull me like the sun to horizon
I can feel the earth turn the surf capsizing
There's a single they will tell my story:
Say that you love me only.

I feel - temperature rising
I see - thunder and lightning
The world can be so lonely
Don't make it so sad for me.

Just lie down in clover.
Live my whole life over.
Our is a single story:
Say that you love me only.
Track Name: Myrtle Avenue
Any time I’m lonely
Any time I’m scared
Having trouble sleeping
I was unprepared

Light em up, sing that song
Do whateverI’ve done wrong
Winter rain, summer sun
Autumn leaves, spring has sprung

I feel so blue, waiting for all those dreams to come true
Waiting so long, it’s only half of what I’ve done wrong
Searched my whole life and I didn’t find you

Many times I’ve told you
Or at least I’ve tried
How I want to hold you
Hold you til I die

Come what may, rain or sun
I’ll be waiting, when it’s done
Light em up, sing that song
Do whatever comes to mind

I feel so good, I’m doing all the things that I should
Wandering downtown, I’m getting groceries, doing my laundry now
Happy I fell in love with you

I feel so good, I’m doing all the things that I should
Wandering downtown, I’m getting groceries, doing my laundry now
Tomorrow I’ll fall back in love with you
Track Name: Crying on the Phone
I - I’ve been awake too long
I know that I can feel it in my bones
When something isn’t right it’s wrong

Old - but I feel so new
And when my morning comes along
It’s just another symptom of my blurry view

Hey you can find me crying on the phone
Waking up alone
Always running off
Should be running on
Crying on the phone
Baby it’s a long way to

I - love you more than I should
Oh baby girl you know I got it bad
I got it bad and that ain’t good

You know that love - never felt so right
Oh but when my morning comes along
It’s going to be a sad American Night

Hey you can find me crying on the phone
Waking up alone
Always running off
Should be running on
Crying on the phone
Baby it’s a long way to

You know you’ll find me crying and crying and crying and crying
Crying and lonely, Crying and lonely
Crying on the phone, it’s just something that we do.
Track Name: I Don't Mind Waiting
I

It’s the way that you walk, curls of your hair
There’s just so little around to compare
I’ll have you one day baby, I’ve made up my mind
I don’t mind waiting a long time

Wait a little while, some things take so long
Don’t you worry baby - I’ll be strong
Wake up one morning, girl it’s me that you find
I don’t mind waiting a long time

Don’t you wait. Don’t you know.
Goddamn I’ve been thinking I was ready to go
You came up to me then I changed my mind.
I don’t mind staying a long time.

Wait a little while, some things take so long
Don’t you worry baby - I’ll be strong
One of these bright mornings, girl it’s me that you find
I don’t mind waiting a long time

II

Oh the dead man wish he were sleeping
Sleeping man wish to awake
I wanna wake up next to you
I don’t care what it might take

Lone man wish he were taken
Taken man wish to be free
This free man knows its no life at all
Without the pleasure of your company

I don’t mind your love coming truly
Take your sexual powers and fool me
Give me your rhythm your curves and your bakin
Honey love I’m there for the takin

You can beat, mistreat and then use me
Throw me down the street and then bruise me
I submit to all of your lovin
I admit that I had it comin

Knew this love / Right from the start
Oh my god, is that my heart?
I wanna know, do dreams come true
Oh oh oh oh, they do

And you ask me why,
I I I I oh I
I wanna know, do dreams come true
Oh oh oh oh, they do

III

Because the dead man wish he were sleeping
Sleeping man wish to awake
I wanna wake up next to you
I don’t care what it might take

Lone man wish he were taken
Taken man wish to be free
I said this free man knows its no life at all
Without the pleasure of your company

If I find you and you’re already there
Loving someone, I won’t care
I’ll wait forever girl, I don’t mind
I don’t mind waiting a long time

I said wait a little while, some things take so long
Don’t you worry baby - I’ll be strong
Wake up one morning, girl it’s me that you find
I don’t mind waiting a long time
