Track Name: Learn to Swim
Oh I was on my way back home tonight,
I saw you there, you looked at me and smiled,
But then you left, you walked out of my life,
Now I can’t sleep, I’m walking all these miles,

All night long, here I stand,
And I’m telling you, that the more I wait, I just hope I can see you again,

So tell me now, will you come back around,
I’ll stay right here, I’ll never leave this town,
And even if, the sun melts the ice down,
Well I won’t move, I’ll learn to swim or drown,

Ooooh,

Oh I don’t I don’t I don’t I don’t I don’t,
Don’t know don’t know don’t know don’t know don’t know,
Oh I don’t know why I, fall in love,

I guess I’ll wait, I guess I’ll wait for you,

It’ll be like we, had never been apart for so long
Track Name: Telephone
I’m just out walking on my own,
Call you up on the telephone,
I just called to say hello,
But you say, that you gotta go,

Can’t you hear it in my voice?
I just want to take you out one night,
But you say that you’re with someone, it’s alright, three two one,

Now that I’m not on my own,
You call on the telephone,
Call me up to figure out,
If I’d like to take you out,

Well you know that there’s nothing more,
That I want in this world,
But I just can’t right now I’m with someone, three two one,

Now that I’m back on my own,
Call you up on the telephone,
But you say you’ve got no time,
Someone’s waiting on the other line,

Well it’s just the way it goes,
First you want me then you don’t,
And I don’t know how much I can take anymore, three four!

Well I heard it through the grapevine, you’ll be coming back to town,
And I won’t mess up this time I’ll make it right, I’ll call you up on the first night!

Now that we’re both on our own, we talk on the telephone,
I say hello to you, and you say “How are you?”

Well I know that it’s been a while, but you and I could fall in love,
And we’ll make up for lost time you know we will, what a thrill!

Now that we’re both in one home, throw away our telephones,
So nice being in one place, I’ll just say things to your face,
I’ll just say things to your face, I’ll just say things to your face,
I’ll just say things, to your face
Track Name: Pretty Girls
Lately I’ve been, on top of everything, I see it all catch you when you fall in the face of danger I stand tall,
But I can’t speak, walking down 5th Avenue, I see them there they all look at me and I don’t know what to do,

Because I see them, walking down the street, all the time those Pretty Girls,
And I can’t say a word to them,
Oh yes I see them, walking down the street, all the time those Pretty Girls,
And I can’t say a word to them

But don’t you know don’t you know I could be your lover, or I could be your friend, I could do anything you want, and I can be anything you say,
Oh don’t you know don’t you know I’ve been walking darling, and I can’t walk away, when you and I could fall in love,

Because I see them, walking down the street, all the time those Pretty Girls,
And I can’t say a word to them,
Oh yes I see them, walking down the street, all the time those Pretty Girls,
And I can’t say a word to them
Track Name: Mary Ann
I was down in the bar when the prettiest girl walked in, she was with her friends having such a time,
When I went up to her and I asked her for a dance, she said, you better, get in line,

But just then and there another girl came up to me, she said her name was Mary Ann,
Said if you want someone to take back home, oh well, here I am,

Mary Ann, Mary Ann, Mary Ann, Mary Ann, oh she took me by the hand, oh that Mary Ann and she said son I’m gonna make you a man,

So I just followed her we went dancing through the room, we were drinking laughing smoking all night long,
Said if you’re down on your luck just call my name, oh I’ll be around,

Mary Ann, Mary Ann, Mary Ann, Mary Ann, oh she took me by the hand, oh that Mary Ann and she said son I’m gonna make you a man,

I don’t know where she came from, and I don’t know where she will go, something tells me I won’t sleep alone,

So we walked out the door and I thought now this is it, but she said this is where your night ends,
Ah cause disappointment’s just another part of life my sweet naïve young man,

Mary Ann, Mary Ann, Mary Ann, Mary Ann, oh she took me by the hand, oh that Mary Ann and she said son I’m gonna make you a man

She said son I’m gonna make you a man, she said son well now you’re a man
Track Name: Goodbye Birdcage
I was falling asleep at the wheel,
Didn’t know anymore what was real,
Took my time getting back in the race,
Can only hope that I’m not too late

Oh there she goes,
Oh there she goes,

Now I’m flying I’m flying away,
Leaving home goodbye my birdcage,
Out the door and I’ll never look back,
A twist of fate now I’m on the right track,

All night and day,
Birdcage,
What you waiting for?
What you waiting for?

Oh, there she goes,
Oh there she goes
Track Name: The Sun in Santiago
What looks like four, feels like noon, the Sun in Santiago
When you love someone like you always knew, the Sun in Santiago,
Oh no what’s this it happened again,
Lost track way back of my only friend,
I hope I make it to the night,

What feels so hot when it should be cold, the Sun in Santiago,
When you’re out on the day so that story’s told, the Sun in Santiago,
Oh no I can’t see straight anymore,
I know it’s only a quarter past four,
I hope I make it to the night,

Mmmmm….

I know that you do not see me,
Maybe one day when you do,
That’s when I’ll know it’s all over,
That’s when I’ll know it begins
Track Name: All Over Town
I go all over town, I’m looking for a pretty girl I’ll love now,
I fall on the ground, I see her there and I’ll never be the same now,
She’s walking my way, then time stops and the spotlight shines on me so,
I’ll try to explain, she looks at me and there’s nothing I can say,

I don’t know what I’m waiting for, by now, I’ve got to go,

So my heart goes all over town, she taps her shoes and she puts her raincoat on now,
She’s running around, my head drops I don’t even know her name now,
I’m all out of time, I can’t escape oh the sight of her’s like oh,

I’ve never felt like this before, I know, won’t fall again, she’s what I’m looking for,

My heart goes but my feet they won’t follow,
My heart goes but my feet they won’t follow,
I’m just looking for a pretty girl
Track Name: Stick Around
Now that you’re leaving, we hope you had a really good time,
I know it’s not easy, but the time has come to say goodbye,

We’ve had our ups and downs our smiles and frowns,
Everyone’s had so much fun,
And we’ll be back I promise that, all you gotta do is stick around

The times keep on changing, we’ll be back again,
The times keep on changing, we’ll come back again, you know we will,

And aah, it’s the end of the ride, look on the bright side, yeah look on the bright side,
And aah, it’s the end of the ride, look on the bright side, yeah look on the bright side,

Now that you’re leaving, we hope you had a really good time,
I know it’s not easy, but the time has come to say goodbye,

And aah, it’s the end of the ride, look on the bright side, yeah look on the bright side,
And aah, it’s the end of the ride, look on the bright side, yeah look on the bright side
Track Name: Heaven Only Knows
Walking home one day I stumbled caught myself wondering where I’ll be in ten years and in ten life times heaven only knows,

Got back up was running forward looking back she’s coming for me who I was in my last life time heaven only knows

All the times I’ve waited for you thought I knew what I was doing, was it the way to go through it, heaven only knows,

All my life it seems, walking through a dream yeah yeah, will I get to where I’m going, heaven only knows,

After all the things I’ve seen I finally know what I can be yeah, will I get there oh I hope so, heaven only knows,

All my life it seems, walking through a dream, will I get to where I’m going heaven only knows
