Track Name: We Think What You Think
We think what you think
And you think my eyes are focused on the wall
You tell me to lighten
But I never always know how
So help me
My eyes are following the ground

Come on...
You know I couldn't take it back, no

Make true the ways you
shoot a film and make projections on the wall
I can't forget you
Your film doesn't burn in a fire
So help me
My eyes are focused on the wall

Come on...
You know I couldn't take it back, no

Come through my bedroom
Sliding glass doors in the middle of the night
Shake me even harder
Wake me inside my dreams
And tell me
Is this love and will you ever leave

Come on...
You know I couldn't take it back, no

I don't understand
I always try
You watch the world go by with a smile, right
Track Name: Circus
My, what a new day!
A bit chipper for a Tuesday
All the elephants have found a purpose
All the people want a circus

And who am I to deny them?
Let them keep on drinking; keep on thinking
all their days will keep on sinking
How can i turn away?
When the circus comes to down today

All your sons and daughters
Screamin', splashin' in the water
and i must admit it makes me nervous
All the people want a circus

And who am I to deny them?
Let them keep on drinking; keep on thinking
all their days will keep on sinking
How can i turn away?
When the circus comes to down today

Come on now, step right this way
And wash yourself as soon as you pay
I'll not forget just when i heard this
All the people want a circus

And who am I to deny them?
Let them keep on drinking; keep on thinking
all their days will keep on sinking
How can i turn away?
When the circus comes to down today

Come on now, step right this way
And wash yourself as soon as you pay
I'll not forget just when i heard this
All the people want a circus
Track Name: Just Like a Dream
Asleep in a field
alone in the dark,
faces changing
from stones into stars

A town I used to know
has faded so slow
like the others
slipped away just like a dream

And how the sunlight was fleeting
And how you called out my name
I don't know the sunshine from the rain falling down
so alone in the dark, asleep at the wheel, alone in the dark in this field I will stay

The silence held strong
it didn't take very long
to hear all our sound as reason
reason why we never say

Maybe I waited too long
to show you this song
but my heart like yours is fleeting,
just running away from a dream

And how the sunlight was beating
And how I called out your name
I don't know the sunshine from the rain falling down
so alone in the dark, asleep at the wheel, alone in the dark in this field I will stay

And how the sunlight was bleeding
And how I called out your name
I don't know the sunshine from the rain falling down
so alone in the dark, asleep at the wheel, alone in the dark in this field I will stay
Track Name: Wheels of the World
Runnin' up and down the walls
Probably gonna take a fall
I'm never gonna sleep again

Spinnin like the wheels of a car
Faster than ever before
I'm runnin on the wheels of the world
I'm never gonna sleep again

It's not you
It's no you I'm looking for
I need more
I need more from a woman and more in a friend
This is the end
This is the end

I had to let her go
She said I already know
I saw it in a dream

The sky is falling down
My thoughts are spinning around
I'm never gonna sleep again

It's not you
It's no you I'm looking for
I need more
I need more from a woman and more in a friend
This is the end
This is the end
Track Name: Love Me Like She Did
I got a window blown out in my house, I called the super on the phone, but the super was me
I said, "When you coming over I got cold air blowin in?"
and he said, "yesterday."

"So when you coming back again?"
He said, "Never son you've had your fun. I'm off to see the other ones"
"But today's the day that's hurting man
I wish that you could understand: leave me in the cold, there's no tomorrow."

And I said why don't you love me like you did, love me like you did?
And I said why don't you love me like you did, love me like you did?

Well I met a girl the other day, she said, "Where you going boy? I wish that you could catch me up."
I said, "Do I even know you girl, and are you the one I'm looking for?" and she said, "yeah."

So we wandered off in the woods, found ourselves a house to settle in and call our own.
But now we're looking back again on nothing like a road, a friend, or any way to get ourselves home.

And I said why don't you love me like you did, love me like you did?
And I said why don't you love me like you did, love me like you did?

Life goes on...

Well I joined the army late last week; it was more than I could ever speak or do on my own.
And all the boys in my platoon say, "Get a shot; better take it soon. You may be never going home."

So I wandered off with my gun; thought I'd have some fun while the boys were all asleep
but someone crept up behind me late in the night laid me down before I could even breathe

And I said why don't you love me like you did, love me like you did?
And I said why don't you love me like you did, love me like you did?

So I left my body on the beach, further than i could ever reach. Up into the sky I grew.
And everyone I'd ever known- all their faces came and shown their light as I flew.

I thought of all the time we'd had, everything we'd ever done, all that I love in this world.
And as I took my final glimpse of my worldly deeds I saw my own mother.

And she said why don't you love me like you did, love me like you did?

Life goes on...
Track Name: Stars
If you ever want to see me again
You're gonna have to bring your friends along
And if you never want to see me again
It's gonna have to end on your terms
Cause mine will leave you standing on the stairway
And my way never gets you very far I've found

If you drop the key inside my cage
You're really only turning the page again
And if you want me to believe in it all
And the stars are making you feel small tonight
When instead they should be making you feel light
So light that your feet don't know the ground

And you're not around
And you're nowhere to be found


I tried to understand you
Making up for lost time
Making you feel light
Like your feet don't touch the ground

I was not around
I was nowhere to be found

And I thought I was erasing the list
But I was really only shaking a fist at it
Now I'm right back where I'd begun
But circle is a revolution
And we're all a revolution anyway
Floating away like we'll never see the ground

And we leave this town
Nowhere to be found

I tried to understand you
Instead I should be making you feel light...
Track Name: You Can't Stop Me From Tryin'
What you want from me
You can't stop me from tryin'
Your lips move so slowly I can follow every word you throw me
My story's long
But it's quick if you pay attention
I've been waiting for this moment in a burst of conversation

This is the story of pain and friendship and the women and men who brought me here
This is the story of revolution in a small child's mind
This is the story of bridges and train tracks and the creation of an everlasting love

What you ask of me
I can't give you the answer
But the way your looking through me I hope I haven't lost you yet
What you think of me
I told you I had a story
But don't you know better I said that just to keep you around

This is the story of pain and friendship and the women and men who brought me here
This is the story of revolution in a small child's mind
This is the story of bridges and train tracks and the creation of an everlasting love

This is the story of pain and friendship and the women and men who brought me here
This is the story of revolution in a small child's mind
This is the story of untold stories and the creation of our everlasting love
