Track Name: Stars Aligned
Start my day
Don’t matter they’re all the same
At a diner south of town
Serving strangers, so mundane
But there’s gotta be
Something better in life for me
Just a sea of passerbys
Till I find the perfect guy

Only took one look
Stars aligned and I was hooked
2 lost souls, 3 steps away
4-ever destined, come what may

Start my day in this worn out hall of fame
I pick-up my paper and a tea
It’s the only thing that can keep me sane
But there’s gotta be
Something more in life for me
I’m just a tycoon sitting pretty
Alone in New York City

Only took one look
Stars aligned and I was hooked
2 lost souls, 3 steps away
4-ever destined, come what may

To my surprise
I’ve looked into your lovely eyes
A dozen times
Standing right in front of me

The story ends
Perfect lovers, but barely friends
So let’s not stick around
We’ll leave this God forsaken town

Only took one look
Stars aligned and we were hooked
2 lost souls, 3 steps away
4-ever destined, come what may

Only took one look
Stars aligned and we were hooked
2 lost souls, 3 steps away
4-ever destined, come what may
Track Name: Something 'bout You
It’s just something ‘bout her gaze
That starts my heart to race
When I’m sitting all alone at night
And thinking ‘bout her
Eyes twinkle on her face
Like stars in outer space
But I’m looking back in time right now
And that’s the part that gets me

So I got her picture
It’s not enough, I want to be there
She’s so far away from me

When I close my eyes
I dream of you at night
You and I will be together
One day, maybe someday
You’ll be mine

It’s just something ‘bout his smile
It just stops me for a while
When I’m on my way to work each day
Daydreaming ‘bout him
Lips so soft it’s hard
Thinking 'bout the past
Hand in hand that day we kissed
How I prayed that it would last

Now I got his email
It’s not enough, I want to touch him
He’s so far away from me

When I close my eyes
I dream of you at night
You and I will be together
One day, maybe someday
You’ll be mine

There’s just something ‘bout you girl
That makes me wanna yell
I can’t breathe without you, without you in my world
My day, my night, we speak
Like lovebirds exchange a tweet
But we’re not face to face right now
And that’s the part that gets me

So I got your cell phone
It’s not enough I want to be there
You’re so far away from me

When I close my eyes
I dream of you at night
You and I will be together
One day, maybe someday

When I close my eyes
I dream of you at night
You and I will be together
One day, maybe someday
You’ll be mine
Track Name: Your Guide
Time is of the essence
So it’s told in a tale
A romance made of magic
For a boy and a girl
All the things beautiful
Reside in the warmth of a smile, a smile

Walks on the pier
In the summertime breeze
Wind in our hair
As we watch autumn leaves
Sit by the fire as winter
Storms by in a flash, a flash

There’ll be roses
That wilt in the fall
When you’re lonesome
I’ll be there when you call
There are mountains to climb
With you by my side
Let me be your guide, tonight

Nothing like the touch
Of your hand when I’m scared
A kiss on my cheek
From your lips when I’m sad
If fishes were wishes
I’d bathe in the sea of your love, your love

Let’s hold on forever
Till death do us part
Bottle our soul
Preserve them deep in our heart
Eternity’s just an old friend
Here’s a toast to our life, our life

There’ll be heartaches
To heal if you fall
When you’re lonesome
I’ll be there when you call
There are mountains to climb
With you by my side
Let me be your guide

There’ll be roses
That wilt in the fall
When you’re lonesome
I’ll be there when you call
There are mountains to climb
With you by my side
Let me be your guide, tonight
Track Name: A Sailor's Tragedy
Baby,
Wherever you are tonight
I’m sending this lullaby
In hope it reaches to your heart

Crazy, crazy
Time is boundless and cruel
Like that it changes everything
And spins you like a fool

It was only briefly,
Now I must let go

Love rushed in
Then pushed us out
Two drifters lost at sea
Laden by the moonlit night
A sailor’s tragedy

It was only briefly,
Now I mourn for you
Track Name: The One I Want
There’s something about you
That makes my heart beat
Whenever you’re near me
Feels like I’m floating high above the street

Starlight, beaming through my window
Flowing softly through me
Until it leads you back down to me
But is it me you’re destined for?

You are the one that I want
(Am I the one you want?)
You are the one that I need
(The one that you need)
There’s just something about you, baby
That makes my whole world feel complete

Falling, can’t shake this feeling
I’ll never stop believing, no
That one day I could wake beside you
So tell me this, can it be fate or could it be bliss
I want the world to know, girl I’m never letting go
While I’m standing by your side
But is it me you’re destined for?

You are the one that I want
(Am I the one you want?)
You are the one that I need
(The one that you need)
There’s just something about you, baby
That makes my whole world so complete
Track Name: Fading
Bound to the night
Endless days taunt me
I shy from the light
Surrendering to you
Enticing…

In only my dreams do you appear
Reaching for me
Upon open eyes you disappear
Fading…

Caught in a web
Languishing till you
Unravel me
But what is love without pain?
You live in my dreams
Till I sleep again

My wants
Your needs come before
Don’t wake me

In only my dreams do you appear
Reaching for me
Upon open eyes you disappear
Fading…
