    Something New

    Here we are

    Jumping through the same old hoops again

    Making everything as complicated as we can

    Nothing can be easy

     

    Here we are

    Swimming in the same deep water again

    Never noticing we're in way over our heads

    Nothing's ever safe

     

    If you fall, just fall forward

    And if you fall, I'll be right beside you

    When we fall, let's just fall forward

    Don't look back- don't look back- it's time we tried something new...

     

    Here we are

    Covering the same old ground again

    We change the words to say exactly the same thing

    Nothing ever changes

     

    Here we are

    Walking down the same old streets again

    Now everything is coming back around the bend

    All the scenes we've been...

     

    If you fall, just fall forward

    And if you fall, I'll be right beside you

    When we fall, let's just fall forward

    Don't look back- don't look back- it's time we tried something new...

    Everything

    You make me smile like a child

    when I hear your voice

    You touch my hand and my

    stomach does somersaults

     

    But I don't know if you know

    Just what you mean to me...

     

    You've taken over my mind

    I can't concentrate

    Every dream that I dream

    comes back to you again

     

    Still I don't know if you know

    Just how much you mean to me...

     

    So I'm telling you now

    and forevermore

    You are everything.

     

    I don't always show how I feel

    keep it locked inside

    But I wouldn't be complete

    without you in my life

     

    But I don't know if you know

    just what you mean to me

     

    So I'm telling you now

    and forevermore

    You are everything

     

    So I'm telling you now

    and forever more

    You are everything


    Yeah, I'm telling you now

    and I need you to know

    You are everything

    You are everything

    You are everything

    You are everything

    Eleanor

    Eleanor, dear Eleanor

    I know we've never talked before

    but I'd like to give you thanks for my freedom

     

    I was trapped in mediocrity

    by a tragic sense of loyalty

    but you found the door & turned the key and

     

    set me free!

    set me free!

     

    Eleanor, oh Eleanor

    I know you didn't know the score

    when you walked into my house to look around

     

    but I wonder, did it bother you

    to take my clothes & wear my shoes?

    but if you'll be me then I'll be you and

     

    I'll be free!

    I'll be free!

     

    Eleanor, dear Eleanor

    I know we've never talked before

    but I'd like to give you thanks for my freedom

     

    it took a while, I must confess

    to see you there in my old dress

    but the color suits you better every day that

     

    I am free!

    I am free!

    And now you’re me

    I’m so free!

    Invisible

    how many times can I turn this page?

    how many times can I die?

    how could it seem this right in every way

    and still be a wall with just one side?

     

    until you

    can see what's right in front of you

    I'll be here

    waiting patiently, invisibly...

     

    you tell me you're gonna get it right this time

    leave all the old mistakes behind

    you're searching for someone real to love you as you are

    but how will you know it when you find her?

     

    until you

    see what's right in front of you

    I'll be here

    waiting patiently, invisibly...

     

    until you

    see what's right in front of you

    I'll be here

    waiting patiently, invisibly...

     

    and yes, I know I'm not your pretty type

    with a crooked smile and a clumsy awkward style

    still, you know it caught me by surprise just how easily your wall could fall

    for some makeup and a pickup line... how could we both be so blind?

     

    and so until you

    can see what's right in front of you

    I'll be here

    waiting patiently, invisibly...

     

    until I

    see what's right in front of me

    I'll be here

    in invisible futility...

     

    you know you could've done better

    I could've done better

    yeah we could've done better...

    Bittersweet

    could I have a little honey

    to go with all my bitter

    just a little taste of sweetness

    if only for a while

     

    I could use a little sunlight

    to break the hold of winter

    it's been nothing but these grey skies

    holding on so long

     

    and it sounds so sweet

    when you sing to me

    I could almost believe...

     

    I've been staring at the ceiling

    ticking off my failures

    I'm counting on the morning

    if only sleep would come

     

    I'm ready for a new day

    the chance to start it over

    so tired of the silence

    & I'm tired of being cold

     

    and it sounds so sweet

    when you sing to me

    I could almost let myself believe...

     

    the dawn could be breaking though the sun's still pale & cold

    it's a fragile awakening--- when we dare ourselves to hope

     

    I could use a little bitter

    to temper all this sweetness

    'cause you know, I might believe it

    when you sing me your song

    I might just sing along...
