Track Name: Out of Order
Candle’s burning down, down, down
Not a soul around in this whole town
All is quiet outside my window
And Tom is singing on the radio

There’s a sign on my door that says:

Out of order
When you’re not around
Out of order
And I can’t be found
Just save it for a rainy day
Save it for a rainy day

Clock is striking now, now, now
But my eyes are open anyhow
I toss and turn the whole night through
Dreams can’t hold a candle to you

All night long, I’ll sing my song:

I’m out of order
When you’re not around
Out of order
And I can’t be found
Just save it for a rainy day
Save it for a rainy day

Time heals all things
I’ll wait for what tomorrow brings
Track Name: I Thought I Could Fly
When I was a little girl,
I thought that I could fly
And people came from very far to watch me try
I climbed way on up to the rooftop,
I held my arms up to the sky
But the world said, “Come on down, girl.”
So I never got to try

There is gonna be a day
When the world will finally hear the words I say

When I got a little older
got a 9 to 5
I learned to make a living
But never felt alive
You know I almost gave
a piece of my mind a hundred times or so
but the world said “Sit back down, girl.”
So I never got to go.

There is gonna be a day
When the world will finally hear me as I say

You can watch me float away
We weren’t meant to stay
Down here on the ground
Watch me float away
Track Name: You Get What You See
Don’t ask me why
I do the things I do
You know I couldn’t change a thing
if I wanted to

Don’t tell me not
to say the things I say
You can scream and shout,
But I’m gonna say them anyway

You get what you see
There’s no other me

I tried fitting in
It didn’t last too long
You know that Life is a melody
I’ve gotta sing my song

I tried to march along
to another beat
But I always ended up
Tripping on my two left feet

I’m not lying
There’s no time for that
I’m just trying
To tell you where I’m at
Track Name: Taxi Outside
Well, it’s a low-light, over-hyped, Hollywood night -
full of diamonds and six-figure deals.
The suits are sharp.
The skirts are tight,
and it’s anything but real.
What do you say –
We make our get away?

There’s a taxi outside
At Fountain and Vine
We can go downtown and have a real good time
A taxi outside, so jump on in
Turn the meter on,
and let the night begin

Well there’s an angry moon in the sky tonight
And it’s playing games with my mind
And the piano’s playing but the changes aren’t right
And I think it’s long past time
we run down through the hall
And we break down all the walls

There’s a taxi outside
At Fountain and Vine
We can go downtown and have a real good time
A taxi outside, so jump on in
Turn the meter on,
and let the night begin

And let them pose for all their pictures
Like so-called millionaires
By the time they start to miss us
We’ll be out of their fabulous hair
Track Name: Go with the Flow
I don't think about tomorrow
Can't remember yesterday
There's no map for me to follow
I just take what comes my way

I just go with the flow
and I let the wind carry me home
I just go with the flow
It's the only thing I know

Don't mistake me for complacent.
I'm no victim of chance.
There's a voice that I am chasing
and I'm just learning how to dance.
Track Name: Find a Dream
I got voices in my ears.
Going back and forth they keep reminding me:
Almost time.
The pressure’s on.

And I gotta take a step, move my feet
to the beat I hear inside of me.
Take a stand
or move along.

'Cause I can’t stand waiting by the tracks no more.
Waiting for the train to come my way.

I gotta find me a dream to get me to tomorrow.
I gotta find me a dream to get me through today.
Tired of sitting around and living with my sorrow day to day.

And now all the words you said
echo back and forth inside my head
and I’m losing sight of who I am.

So I gotta make a change,
Rearrange all the lyrics and the melodies.
Get in tune
and sing my song.

'Cause I've been waiting so long,
but these questions don't have answers
and I've been trying to slow down,
but the days keep moving faster and I know it now.
