Track Name: She Bears - Victim of Circumstance
I speed my steps and walk myself home to rest my aging bones. Because I feel older than I did last year. But I guess I should shoulder some of the blame.

Maybe I am just a family man in waiting.

But if my options run dry, where will I turn?

I feel older than I ever have, but I should just shoulder most of the blame.

I am older than I've ever been so I should get sober, at least for the day.
Track Name: Les Sages - Nomads
I'll be your puppet. You can tie your string and tug it. I will follow your lead. And when the devil gets us tangled I won't cut myself free because I never wanna leave. I'm never gonna leave, I need you. Just take this ring. We'll set a date for in the Spring to sign in permanent ink to the terms and the conditions for a permanent link. We'll be fearless as our lives combine and find light.

If you ever say that you're craving change, I will get up and run away with you. I will get up and run away with you and try to find a better life. I will get up and run away with you, I will pack up and run away.

Oh, the king himself can honor me in royal song and the people of the city can shout, Bob! Bob! But I am bored…if the voice isn't yours.

You'll be my puppet. I will pull your strings, you'll love it. We'll play out the best scenes from your favorite romance movies and my epic spy themes. Oh you'll never want to leave 'cause we're such a perfect team, you and me D. We'll have nine kids. They'll learn to sing and strum and pick. The boys will play in a band and they'll write this song to honor us and our tattered, tired hands. It'll be the best of heaven, earth and hell as we grow through this.

So what if I want to move our life? Would you get up and run away with me? I know you'd get up and run away with me. And try to find a better life. I know you'd get up and run away with me. You'd pack up and run away.

Oh, the king himself can honor me in royal song and the people of the city can shout, Bob! Bob! But I am bored…if the voice isn't yours. Oh, the king himself can honor me in royal song and the people of the city can shout, Bob! Bob!

I know you know this but I have to let this out and tell the world through songs and shouts: That I am bored…if the voice isn't yours.
Track Name: This Drama - She Had A Knife!
Run, run, run!

Love is too late bring me back tonight. Hey, hey babe! I gotta go now. Oh, I gotta go, now I gotta go.

I'm really scared, yeah I really care. The way you go when you don't understand. I gotta go, go, now I gotta go.

'Cause you…the city is burning tonight.

Hey, hey, hey!

Yeah, It's over. Was your last dance. Now I gotta go, gotta gotta go. So it's over, was your last song. Now I gotta go, gotta gotta go.

Yeah and I'm still there when you get up.

'Cause you...the city is burning tonight.

Run, run, run!
Track Name: The Lions Rampant - Lights On
I know you felt it when I let you go and told you, you weren't mine. But you were always on my mind, like cigarettes and wine. And every kiss that was on my lips. Babe, you know that you were missed. So when we finally, we're gonna reconcile.

You know it will be with lights on. With lights on. With lights on. With lights on. With lights on on on, on on on, on on on, on on on!

And when I crawled into your bed, babe, it felt just like fire. The fire that burns in through the night, before the wind comes and breathes it all to life. Til the wind comes and sets it all alight.

You know it will be with lights on. With lights on. With lights on. With lights on. With lights on on on, on on on, on on on, on on on!

Oh darling, with the lights on. Oh darling, with the lights on. Oh darling, with the lights on. Oh darling, with the lights on. Oh darling, with the lights on. Oh darling, with the lights on. Oh darling, with the lights on. Oh darling, with the lights on.

Your unmade face can't be denied (oh darling, with the lights on). No your face can't be denied (oh darling, with the lights on). No, your unmade face can't be denied.
Track Name: Moonlit Sailor - Night Stroll
Instrumental
Track Name: Public Radio - Forgot Love
You can hum it all you like. You can sing it in your mic, but you can't be in love without showing it. You can write it on a page but you'll forget the phrase. 'Cause you can't sing of love without knowing it.

When are you gonna come home? I know your secrets, I know your songs. When will the fever break? I feel the wind's about to change.

You can leave it on your phone You can call it all night long, but you can't be in love without showing it. You can rule the radio, front the rolling stone but you can't sing of love without knowing it.

When are you gonna come home? I know your secrets, I know your songs. When will the fever break? I feel the wind's about to change.

And all you thought that you once knew. You've lost your way, your sense of truth. Your heart's been crushed. You forgot love. Coming home.

And all you thought that you once knew. You've lost your way your sense of truth. Take off your coat and wipe your shoes. I'm calling you, no more excuses.

Your heart's been crushed. You forgot love. I wanna be with you when the nighttime is over (your heart's been crushed. I wanna be with you when the morning is coming (you forgot love). I wanna be with you when the winter is over (your heart's been crushed). I wanna to be with you when the springtime is coming (you forgot love). I wanna be with you when this lifetime is over (your heart's been crushed). I wanna be with you when this morning is coming (you forgot love).

I wanna be where you are. I wanna be where you are. Yeah, I wanna be where you are. I wanna be where you are.
Track Name: Papermoons - Live Right
I just wanna know if my life is a joke. Cause I breath right, do I live right?

Flash back two thousand five. With our heads in the clouds, a one-track mind, we made our own bed to lay in.

Were we okay then? Are we okay now? Were we okay then? Are we okay now?

We share a drink on the porch at six am. At six am, we made our own bed to lay in.

Were we okay then? Are we okay now? Were we okay then? Are we okay now?

And I just wanna know if my life is a joke. Cause I breath right, do I live right? And I just wanna know if my life is a joke. Cause I breath right, do I live right? And I just wanna know (I just wanna know) if my life is a joke. Cause I breathe right, do I live right? And I just wanna know (I just wanna know) if my life is a joke. Cause I breathe right, do I live right?
Track Name: The Cast Before The Break - Onward, Love
We are the instrument in tune with all that's surfacing. In time we'll all be blessed again with all we know. We are the paradigm for elemental pantomime. Our love will conquer anything after we grow
Track Name: Cari Clara - Stars Evading
Are you listening? The quiet hissing of the streetlights our sunshine guiding us through the night. Let's be shadows and let our hearts go dance fine lines through land mines waiting.

If the world should end before we wake, at least tonight is ours to take. So never let go, say you'll never let go.

Let's make no sounds but marching chest pounds. Run from dark clouds to stars evading.

If the world should end before we wake at least tonight is ours to take. So never let go, say you'll never let go.

We're taking everything, it's ours, I swear. No use for gravity, we've used our share. We're gonna sing from the roofs while they load up their guns, running free through the dark 'til the morning we find the sun.

If the world should end before we wake at least tonight is ours to take. So never let go, say you'll never let go, you'll never let go. Say you'll never let go.
Track Name: Goonies Never Say Die - Everyone Comes To Life
Instrumental
Track Name: Nathan Xander - Trial By Fire
Everybody wants to be the genuine artifact, an archetype, like they met some holy ghost. But everywhere around me, I'm saddened by the fact that all the old masters are either dead or getting close.

Leave it up to the young ones to decide who's a real one. Do you feel like a real one? Pose a couple of questions and I think you'll see, you never had a choice in the matter and there ain't nothing wrong with me. Inspiration brings a grand fortune but baby it don't come easy.

Conserve your patience. Conceal your pride. Wouldn't want some body to find out and tell the others what you've stolen. Lead the lamb to slaughter like you ain't got nothing to hide. You'll run the table tomorrow, if that poker face don't crack by morning.

Leave it up to the young ones to decide who's a real one. Do you feel like a real one? Pose a couple of questions and I think you'll see, you never had a choice in the matter and there ain't nothing wrong with me. Inspiration brings a grand fortune but baby it don't come easy.

Come, come, the bell has rung and the curtains pull back on the balcony. Your fate's already decided, but for me it's a trial by fire, on the border of the frontier next to me, on the border of the frontier next to me.

Look me in the eyes while my song is played and I hope you can't do nothing else. And I hope you realize that I can't be thrown away. I'm tied to this world like you're tied to pleasing yourself.

Leave it up to the young ones to decide who's a real one. Do you feel like a real one? Pose a couple of questions and I think you'll see, you never had a choice in the matter and there ain't nothing wrong with me. Inspiration brings a grand fortune but baby it don't come easy.
Track Name: Late Night Condition - Saviour
Drive it faster. Speed up the pace. Now I discover why you said those words in my ear. You're always down. You count the days. Light up, you'll miss your chance to shine. This is a warning, a warning sign.

In this new home you'll try to be the saviour of our memories. Away from harm, we'll always be. You'll come and set us free.

Something's missing, a part of me. It's hard to listen but I'll try to focus on this. Depressurize and stop to think. Light up, you'll miss your chance to shine. This is a warning, a warning sign.

In this new home you'll try to be the saviour of our memories. Away from harm, we'll always be. You'll come and set us free.

This night, you'll get to see our decline. We'll give in to what you know, all you know.

In this new home you'll try to be the saviour of our memories. Away from harm, we'll always be. You'll come and set us free.
Track Name: Down To Earth - Prisms 1
I'm about to be dazed. But anyway, I'll seize the day. About to depress. Not thrown away, more castaway. In a diamond it stands. Which side of me takes it away? A dive in that prism. Intruder in that reckless land.

Inner riots here. Smart bodies and lips glazed by death. With absurdly blinks, with blissfully blinks. Inner riots here. Smart bodies and lips glazed by death. With absurdly blinks, with blissfully blinks.

I'm blasted and weak. But anyway, I'll seize the day. I'm scared to be here. Not thrown away, real castaway. More dives in that prism. Which part of me feels addictive?

Inner riots here. Falsetto realm in the midst of my head. With absurdly blinks. Inner riots here. Falsetto realm in the midst of my head. With absurdly blinks.

I give my pictures a factual sense. I give my pictures a factual sense. Give my pictures a factual sense. Give my pictures a fact…

Inner riots and new facets. Inner riots and new facets.

I love to be dazed. Cause anyway, I'm thrown away. I've blown out my brain. This part of me took it away. In a diamond it stands. This part of me took it away.
Track Name: Track A Tiger - Heart
I felt the bullet hit my heart and all at once I felt so cold. It's in too deep to cut it out and scrape through another dream with you, a dream with you.

And every time I have to lie, it tears a little more away. I'll have to make it up somehow before there's nothing left to say to you. Nothing left at all.

And every day I'm losing ground, sailing on this side of hope. But you will pass me by as I wait to ride in time with you, ride in time with you.

I feel this bullet in my heart. I know it's never coming out. It's in too deep to cut away and scrape through another dream with you, a dream with you.
Track Name: Ride Your Bike - The Connection
And I saw the connection between the end of the roads and the signs on the street. It was the day L.A. saw stars, someone pushed aside the smog. Let them see what they've been missing.

I wish I knew what I do know now. I know it's dim but it's the truth somehow. And later on I learn you yell loud. What the hell happened to you?

When will this sly chemical give up and pull her teeth from me. Dawn is a sweet delusion, best not to think it's free. Let them see what they've been missing.

I wish I knew what I do know now. I know it's dim but it's the truth somehow. And later on I learn you yell loud. What the hell happened to you?

Cause I laid eyes on the golden gate and it felt so strange. There I drove across the sea, into that city. Oh Elly, I saw you in the sky tonight. Yes sir, long after the stars died and I hold on.

I wish I knew what I do know now. I know it's dim but it's the truth somehow. And somehow the truth feels like I'm free now. I felt it crawling in my hands when Thailand was still Siam.

I wish I knew what I do know now. I know it's dim but it's the truth somehow. And later on I learn you yell loud. What the hell happened to you?
Track Name: Desoto Jones - Don't Fail Me
I could have handled this a little better, I know, but so far I have seen no evidence that this one would last. It's not a personal attack, it just got bored and stretched out. Let's not pretend to concern ourselves 'cause it's really not that bad. I better stop now (stop now) before I (before I) get caught (get caught), get caught in a lie (that I can't prove). I better stop now (stop now) because it's not fair (not fair) for the both of us.

Don't fail now, don't fail me now, don't fail now. Commitment comes and scares me away again. Don't fail now, don't fail me now, don't fail now What I've become has blown me away again.

To keep avoiding, you could surely make things worse. With a phone call, I could be responsible for the first time in years. I better stop now (stop now) before I (before I) get caught (get caught), get caught in a lie (that I can't prove). I better stop now (stop now) because it's not fair (not fair) for the both of us.

Don't fail now, don't fail me now, don't fail now. Commitment comes and scares me away again. Don't fail now, don't fail me now, don't fail now What I've become has blown me away again. Yeah!

This bridge is burning down (so far), this bridge is burning down (so good). Sit back, I'm not changing your world, I'm passing through, I'm just a face. This bridge is burning down (so far), this bridge is burning down (so good). Someway, somehow, I'm better off alone. I can't wait 'til the fire burns out and it's over.

Don't fail now, don't fail me now, don't fail now. Commitment comes and scares me away again. Don't fail now, don't fail me now, don't fail now What I've become has blown me away again. Yeah! Commitment comes and scares me away again. Commitment comes and scares me away again.
Track Name: 500 Miles To Memphis - The Regret
I ain't ready. Yeah, I ain't ready. Don't put me in that pine box yet. This here whiskey kept me busy ‘til I could get my mind off of you. It's been hazy. Yeah, real hazy. The past eight months have been a bitch. Now I'm ready. Yeah, I'm ready to start all over without you.

I'll get up, up, up. I might be bloody. I've got more regrets than anybody should. The good times we had are gone and they ain't coming back.

Well, I'm sorry. Yeah, I'm sorry. I never meant to do wrong by you. Now I'm sober. Yeah, I'm sober. There ain't much else that I can do. All my bridges, all my bridges have long ago gone up in flames. Well, I'm trying. Yeah, I'm trying to get it together despite you.

I'll get up, up, up. I might be bloody. I've got more regrets than anybody should. The good times we had are gone and they ain't coming back.

Why should I care? Why do I care? I've been taking all the blame for everything that's been going wrong with you.

I'll get up, up, up. I might be bloody. I've got more regrets than anybody should. The good times we had are gone and they ain't coming back.

I'll get up, up, up. I might be bloody. I've got more regrets than anybody should. I could have been a better son and a better man.

I'll get up, up, up. I might be bloody. I've got more regrets than anybody should. the good times we had are gone and they ain't coming back.
Track Name: Moving Mountains - Aphelion
And that's the fire in the sun. And that's the fire in the sky. We are so far away from home. We are so far away from home.
