Track Name: Macrocosm
Sunshine brightens the moonlight
It came just in time
I'm glad that you're mine

Waves crash just like how times pass
You let me know
Don't let me go

Earthland, stuck in the quicksand
A lifetime of shame
I'm glad that you came

Wind blows stronger than we'll know
Floating away
I hope that you stay

Moonbeams flow through my bloodstream
Sailing through space
Far from this place
Track Name: Why Girl, Why
Would you listen to me if I told you
That I was always afraid?
Would you happen to be there with me
If I felt alone and betrayed?

And now that we're looking back from the future
I'd like an answer from you
And darling don't work around it too much because
All I want is the truth

Could you tell me why girl, why
You're killing me on your own?
Could you tell me why girl, why
You're acting like you've never known?

And maybe I can be happier now
Without you holding me down
I didn't know that I needed you then
And you turned me right back around

I know that it's right for me to say
That I didn't have to change just for you
Glad I could figure out and see
Why I didn't want to be there for you

Could you tell me why girl, why
You're not standing here by my side?
And instead of living
I was not even alive

Doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo
doo doo doo doo, da da daa

Could you tell me why girl, why
You're not standing here by my side
Woah, I was alone, girl

Could you tell me why girl, why
You're not standing here by my side?

I was alone, girl
Track Name: U.S.A.
I've never been here before
This place I don't even know
Lordy, where did I go?
Where did I go?

I came to California
About 20 years ago today
Woulda never thought I'd stay here
In good ol' U.S.A.

And my Momma, she's against it
I tell her she don't understand
Why all the gold and diamonds
Could never make me leave my land

And now I'm stuck in this place
And I don't know a face
It's a wild goose chase in here
In here

My neighbor grows his own potatoes
And dear Sally's working at the zoo
Ain't a thing that could go wrong here
And baby that's the truth

Catch me cruisin' all across the highway
In the hottest piece of muscle around
And all my friends will be there
Darlin', I won't let you down

Now I seen a show on Broadway
And gone huntin' all around the West
I've climbed the Rocky Mountains
And I'm on to do the rest

And my mom, she's still against it
She'll never change her mind a single way (no she won't)
'Bout how I learned to love to live in
The U.S.A., yeah the U.S.A.
Yeah the U.S.A, yeah the U.S.A.
Track Name: I'll Be There
When it rained outside last summer
I thought of you
Every sideways conversation
And memory too

Maybe someday we'll be together
I'd like to pretend
Rearrange the time so we can
Start over again

So know
No matter where you go
You won't be alone
You can call on me
I'll be there

Through all the time spent arguing
I'd never thought I'd stay but
I'll be there

And even though the seasons change
Through every passing evening
I'll be there, I'll be there

Why it rains outside in summer
I don't understand
At least loving you completely
Is in my command

I play over in my mind now
What you think of me
Only time will give me an answer
I'll just wait and see

So know
No matter where you go
You won't be alone
You can call on me
I'll be there

I've told you 'bout a thousand times
So try to understand that I'll be there

And maybe we'll come close to love
It's not too far away so I'll be there
I'll be there, I'll be there, I'll be there
Track Name: Destiny
I never knew you but I've seen you before
I got so lucky when you walked through the door
My heart was racing I was shivering down to my core
We ran off

I showed you places that were special to me
You made it clear what a man ought to be
I'm talkin' senseless and I'm under your spell
And they love's a mystery

Baby, trouble'll be looking for us
Tonight, you'll probably be thinkin' 'bout the
Last time, that anyone ever made you
Feel so alive

You know I
Need you, to open my eyes to something
Brand new, and give it a try for me to
Break through, and pray to the skies
'Cause it's your love that brings me home to you

When I first saw you I had nothing to say
You saw me shakin' and you came right away
And then you told me to remember today
Because, "Our lives will never be the same"

So let me show you what my lovin' can do
You're talkin' crazy I guess I do it too
I'll never settle and you know that it's true
Until my heart is one with you

You know I
Need you, to open my eyes to something
Brand new, and give it a try for me to
Break through, and pray to the skies
'Cause it's your love that brings me home to

Yoohoo, you're driving me crazy baby
And God knows, my memory's hazy but I'm
Still sure, I know when I crave you
'Cause to me, you're one to keep

To her
Beauty never came right away
She needed time to just get away
To come back again someday

And I
Knew the kind of woman you'd be
It's black and white and easy to see
Could it be
Destiny?
Oh yeah

Baby, trouble'll be lookin' for us
Tonight, you'll probably be thinkin' 'bout the
Last time, that anyone ever made you feel so alive

You know I
Need you, to open my eyes to something
Brand new, and give it a try for us to
Break through, and pray to the skies
'Cause my love is only just

For you
From me
For you
From me
Track Name: Burnin' For You
Three words
Sending me back on my way
She'll be
Smiling softly through the day

I know
Someday we will meet again
She'll be
Living in my head 'til then

And I know
She feels it too
Love is stronger than I thought I knew

Dear my love,
You've set my heart on fire
Now I'm burnin'
I'm burnin' for you

Dear my love,
You've set my heart on fire
Now I'm burnin'
I'm burnin' for you

Ooh baby, let me hold your hand
Let me be your man
I've tried my best to warn ya
So hold on if you can

If it's love you're tryna find
I'll give you mine

Yeah yeah yeah yeah
Track Name: My Love Ain't Up For Sale
I know baby it's down to me
I got a place to be
And someone who cares for me

And I know that trouble will still find me
Doin' the same old things with people I shouldn't be

I told her
My love ain't up for sale
You can't buy it anywhere
Take it from me

Yeah, I told her
My love ain't up for sale
You can't buy it anywhere
Yeah, take it from me

They say somethings been changed with you
You normally wouldn't do
And I think it's true

I think that you should know we are through
It's time to get rid of you
Something I ought to do, girl

I told her
My love ain't up for sale
You can't buy it anywhere
Take it from me

Yeah, I told her
My love ain't up for sale
You can't buy it anywhere
Take it from me

Yeah, love (for sale)
Ooh, love (for sale)
Wahoo, love (for sale)
Da dooby dooby waka waka love (for sale)

La la love (for sale)
Love, love, love
Love, love, love
Love, love, love

Will you ever know?
Our situation goes
Something gone unplanned
Something you'll understand

Go with Mr. Right
I won't put up a fight

Misconceptions, misconceptions

I've always tried to tell you
Just to forget about me
