Track Name: At My Door
[verse 1]
you tell me that I’m wrong
it’s written in the only book you know
that my flaws are starting to show
I don’t buy what you’re selling me
I’ll do what I need to make me happy
you act like everything you say is true

[chorus]
you say it’s the right way
but I’ve heard it all before
if I’m so lost and mixed up
then why are you at my door?
I can’t see
what’s so wrong with the life I lead
why don’t you spend more time on you
and less with me

[verse 2]
I can only be me
you’ve lost your individuality
I don’t wanna hear you anymore
(I don’t wanna hear you anymore)

[chorus]
you say it’s the right way
but I’ve heard it all before
if I’m so lost and mixed up
then why are you at my door?
I can’t see
what’s so wrong with the life I lead
why don’t you spend more time on you
and less with me

[chorus]
you say it’s the right way
but I’ve heard it all before
if I’m so lost and mixed up
then why are you at my door?
I can’t see
what’s so wrong with the life I lead
why don’t you spend more time on you
and less with me
Track Name: Hit #1
[verse 1]
the band’s first gig
in the backyard of this girl from Los Al
it was gonna be big
we were told there would be tons of people
dancing around
but there wasn't even music when we showed up at eight
there was nobody there
so we made a few calls and told some friends to

[pre-chorus]
stay up late, hang out tonight
the stars outside are big and bright
as long as you're happy everything's gonna be alright

[verse 2]
we started to play
and suddenly the party was full
everyone was watching
and then they started to move
there was dancing, shaking, skanking, moshing ‘round in a pit
two hours later no one wanted to quit
but the cops showed up, we had to end our set
so we played a song to let everybody sing

[pre-chorus]
stay up late, hang out tonight
the stars outside are big and bright
as long as you're happy everything's gonna be alright

[chorus]
turn the radio up
it can't get loud enough
we’re feelin’ good, like we should
now we’re gonna shake things up
we're making lot's of noise
so all the girls and boys
can take a chance, do a dance
this is gonna be our night

[pre-chorus]
stay up late, hang out tonight
the stars outside are big and bright
as long as you're happy everything's gonna be alright
[chorus]
turn the radio up
it can't get loud enough
we’re feelin’ good, like we should
now we’re gonna shake things up
we're making lot's of noise
so all the girls and boys
can take a chance, do a dance
this is gonna be our night
Track Name: Maybe Tomorrow
[verse 1]
tried to write some happy song
but those words feel so wrong
since I walked out and hit the open road
I’ve felt a bit depressed
and an excess of stress
trying to slam shut that door cause

[chorus]
it’s alright I cannot say
it’s alright maybe today
but if I can find a way to let go of yesterday
maybe tomorrow won’t be half as bad as now

[verse 2]
will I get this right?
I thought I knew someday I might
or will my every attempt end as a failure
still every day I try
they moved along so why can’t I?
why am I stuck in this place when

[chorus]
it’s alright I cannot say
it’s alright maybe today
but if I can find a way to let go of yesterday
maybe tomorrow won’t be half as bad as now

[bridge]
and even though I wish I hadn’t gone
I still know I, I had to move on
and so I reach out with one foot firmly in the past
trying not to move too fast

it’s alright I cannot say
it’s alright maybe today
it’s alright maybe today
it’s alright at least today

[chorus]
it’s alright I guess I’ll say
it’s alright for at least today
so I guess I found a way to let go of yesterday
maybe tomorrow won’t be half as bad as now
Track Name: Sean Connery
[verse]
I’ve had a hard time being number two
always wondered what I meant to you
after all that we’ve done
I’m still tangled in the web that we spun

[sub-verse]
and I’m still sorry ‘bout the way
that everything turned out today
I guess that when it’s said and done
we never had our place in the sun

[pre-chorus]
you’ll never love me but I won’t cry
I know it’s not because you haven’t tried
we’re getting dizzy on this rollercoaster ride
that goes ‘round in my heart and keeps me locked up inside

[chorus]
we will never get it right
try to force something on us overnight
what we need to do is open our eyes
and see what we have deep down inside
cause what we have is a friendship that won’t last
what the hell we might not even have that
but still I care, it’s the least I can do
I’ll leave the rest all up to you

[verse]
it’s sad to say
but I can see my life without you
I don’t mean go away
but when you’re gone it’s easier to breathe

[sub-verse]
how many times must I apologize
before you think that they’re no longer lies
hope some day you’ll realize
this is not our place this is not our time

[pre-chorus]
you’ll never love me but I won’t cry
I know it’s not because you haven’t tried
we’re getting dizzy on this rollercoaster ride
that goes ‘round in my heart and keeps me locked up inside

[chorus]
we will never get it right
try to force something on us overnight
what we need to do is open our eyes
and see what we have deep down inside
cause what we have is a friendship that won’t last
what the hell we might not even have that
but still I care, it’s the least I can do
I’ll leave the rest all up to you

[chorus]
we will never get it right
try to force something on us overnight
what we need to do is open our eyes
and see what we have deep down inside
cause what we have is a friendship that won’t last
what the hell we might not even have that
but still I care, it’s the least I can do
I’ll leave the rest all up to you

[outro]
what we had will not last
what we had will not last
Track Name: We Want More
[verse 1]
you can’t see who we really want to be
(why do we bother?)
never win, fitting in, get up just to fall again
this is not the first time and it
won’t be the last but it never mattered
(we can pull through this)
jump in line, just in time, soon’ll be our time to shine
you have yet to figure this all out

[pre-chorus]
it will start to show
but they’ll never know
what it means to be a part of this
you know it makes me want to

[chorus]
shout something
shout something
shout something
shout something

[verse 2]
we are who we are cause we’ve come this far
(finish what we started)
come in last, falling fast, rising from a broken past
now we hear you shouting
we want more

[pre-chorus]
it will start to show
but they’ll never know
what it means to be a part of this
you know it makes me want to

[chorus]
shout something
shout something
shout something
shout something
