Track Name: feelin' alright
Daydream, sweet talking queen
Yeah she’s always in my brain and man that’s alright with me
I can’t make her stay but I’d lay here all day
Yeah I hope and babe I pray because I can’t have my way without it

I’d be feelin’ alright, if I only had the time
I can feel it alright

Shotgun, man on the run
Yeah I’m shaking like a leaf and girl I’m nothing but lungs
I can’t think straight but it’s better that way
Cause when I’m thinking straight I’ve never got nothing to say about it

I’d be feelin’ alright, if I only had the time
I can feel it alright ∞
Track Name: sidewinder blues
Sidewinder blues comin’ in fast and hot
Told me she’d always love me with everything she’s got
And I believed her
Well that’s my fault

Everything is peaches but she’s livin’ in a dream
Ain’t no feelin’ like a woman treatin’ you so mean
And I forgave her
And that’s my fault

What’s makin’ me crazy? I’m still waitin’ on her call

Heatseekin’ sorrow deep inside my brain
I don’t know just how it happened but I ain’t been the same
And now I need her
And that’s my fault

Sidewinder blues is comin’ on
Sidewinder blues is comin’ on
What’s makin’ me crazy? I’m still waitin’ on her call
Track Name: i wanna be your friend
Give me a reason to smile
It’s you I’ve been missin’ for so long now
Tell me when should I breathe again?

My heart is weighin’ a ton
Got enough lovin’ for everyone
So please baby won’t you just let me in?
Oh I wanna be your friend

I feel myself rippin’ my seams
It’s not happenin’ so gracefully
I know you can sew me right up in a pinch

The space in between the stars
Is bigger for some than it is for ours
I’m brighter with you than I ever been
Oh I wanna be your friend

Give me a reason to smile
It’s you I’ve been missin’ for so long now
Tell me when should I breathe again?
Track Name: goin' thru the motions
All these creatures run me
god they preacher’s son me
like they think they’re so above me
man I need a release

All these hallways lost me
embrace me and emboss me
or entangle and accost me
man I need a release

Release, release
Release, release

Oh release me please so I can get on my way
you can call it what you want but I’d just call it a day
I got to say, I got to say, I got to say
There’s got be a better way

Sitting at my day job
just trying to keep the weight off
while I’m waiting to get laid off
man I need a release

Doctor’s got me dozing
it’s comatose commotion
caught me phoning in devotion
man I need a release

Release, release
Release, release

Cause I’m (Oo la) just going through the motions
(Oo la) just going through the motions
(Oo la) just going through the motions yeah

Cause I’m (Oo la) just going through the motions
(Oo la) just going through the motions
(Oo la) just going through the motions yeah

Oh release me please so I can get on my way
you can call it what you want but I’d just call it a day
I got to say, I got to say, I got to say
There’s got be a better way
Track Name: everything is special
Can’t no man say that he loves you
Tell ‘em to keep sailin’ on by
I got everything I’ll be missin’ someday
Just floatin’ back, tied on a line

Follow me down to the river
We don’t get the problem with time
Soakin’ in the rhythm of summer lovers
And doin’ just enough to get by

And I know everything is special
And I like to think that we are, too
Cuz I’m a lightning bug glowin’, a current flowin’
Right back home to you

General man say that he needs me
To go behind the enemy line
I know it’s a suicide mission baby
But maybe I will make it alright
Cuz when I see you down by the water
Helpin’ all the critters survive
I just want a little bit of your lovin’
And I will always stay by your side

And I know everything is special
And I like to think that I am, too
Cuz all I ever needed was you to believe it
And you can be special, too

Can’t no man, can’t no man, can’t no man cuz I’m the man
Who’s always gonna say that he loves you
