Track Name: Come Back To Me
Feels like you're losing
All your control.
The world is moving,
But your feet won't go.
And your heart breaks for every reason.
You found the pictures
Of you and me.
You thought you lost them.
But now you see
That you can't lose what doesn't wanna be lost.

CHORUS
And when the nights are long
And life seems to lose it's meaning.
And when the days move slow
And when your heart wants to quit beating.
There is a place you can go
Where you'll always be home.
Come back to me.

My world is changing
Most everyday.
But thoughts of you they
Still stay the same.
And I'm still here.
I've always been.

CHORUS

BRIDGE
Oh, my love
Can't you see my love.
Can't you feel my love.
Can't you see? (2x)

And come back to me.
Come back to me.
Come back to me.
Track Name: Without You
I think about it late at night
Whenever I can't get myself to sleep.
Go over all the hits and misses,
Gaps and twists that led you here to me.
I was so different way back then;
It's hard to think of who I now would be.
If you hadn't been there when you were
Or if I chose a different life to lead.

CHORUS
So let's go back, back, back to when I first met you.
What would my life be like without you?
Back, back, back to when I first met you...
Oh,
So let's go back, back, back, back, back. (3x)
Yeah, let's go back.

It's funny when you look at doors you closed
And wonder what'd be like if you stayed.
But looking at this life of ours
I wouldn't have it any other way.
'Cause out of all the cuts and bruises
False missteps I found myself with you.
If I'd chosen differently
Imagine all the good things I would lose.

CHORUS

BRIDGE
So let's go back, back, back to
When I first met you.
Let's go back, back, back to
When I first met you.

CHORUS
Track Name: Last of its Kind
Oh (2x)

I’ll be somebody someday
Gonna pay my dues
Gonna do it the hard way.
Gonna walk on edge of the line
And I’ll be just fine
Yeah I’ll be just fine.
My daddy had a good, hard life
Living like each day was the last of its kind
Gonna make it my own way
'Matter what they say
If it’s the last I do.
And I say

CHORUS
Oh
Got a moment
Take it up right
Oh
Don’t be afraid to put up a fight
Go driving that highway
Make it go my way
Live each day like the last of its kind
Yeah driving that highway
Make it go my way
And I say
Yeah I say
Oh
Oh

I don’t wanna look back
And feel like I didn’t do all I could
To make the most of what I got
And make this life be something good.
‘Cause it’s a long shot
But it’s a damn far cry from impossible.
You know, I want a big life,
If it’s a hard life
At least I did the best that I could.

CHORUS

BRIDGE
You can't stop me
'Cause I'm invincible. (4x)

CHORUS

Oh (4x)
Track Name: 1987
It's a little bit after midnight
And you're flashing on your headlights
Through my windowpane.
And you pull up with your top down
So that we can drive around town
And see everything.
It's become like second nature
To allow myself the stranger side of this city.

CHORUS
And when we go
Ain't nobody knows this feeling.
When it takes hold
Color starts to fade the grey.

There's a certain kind of moment
Where the world feels like it's open
To just what you need.
And I feel it everytime
You take me out on these night rides
And it takes hold of me.
I'm not worrying, just feeling
I'm not doubting, I'm just sealing
This to memory.

CHORUS

BRIDGE
When we're driving in your car
We don't have to go too far
Just to feel alive.
Just to feel alive.
Born in 1987,
Always knew where we were headed
To enjoy the ride.
So just enjoy the ride.

CHORUS (2x)
Track Name: Anyone Like You
I know your name
I've got your number.
And all your games
They pull me under.
I don't like anyone
I don't like anyone like you.
(Ba, bah, ba ba ba ba)
And all your lies
(All your lies)
They will catch up to you.
You've cut the ties
(Cut the ties)
Now what more can you lose?
We play these games again
And I don't wanna be your friend no.
I don't wanna be your
I don't wanna be your friend.

CHORUS
So let's go back to the life I lived before you.
Way back when to a simpler sort of time.
I hate that you won't let me just ignore you.
I hate that I am always on your mind.

I know your type.
I've got you figured.
You've got the world
Wrapped around your finger.
I don't like anyone
I don't like anyone like you.
You've got the looks
(You've got the looks)
So you get what you want fast
But I'm so done
(I'm so done)
With always kissing your--
Asking me to owe you one.
I don't wanna owe you one.
No, I don't wanna owe ya
I don't wanna owe you one.

CHORUS

Instrumental

CHORUS 2x
Track Name: Play It Again
Play it again (ooh, ooh)
Yeah, play it again (ooh, ooh).

Sun's setting; it's the end of June.
Summer nights--they end too soon.
Getting ready in the back of your car.
We can groove no matter where we are.

Ooh, ooh, it's got my heart mad beatin'.
Ooh, ooh, it's beatin' good.

CHORUS
Dancin' all night
Music's just right
Play it again-gain-gain
'Cause you know just what I like.
(Get down til the lights come up
Everybody's movin', wanna fall in love.)
Dancin' all night
Music's just right
Play it again-gain-gain
'Cause you know just what I like.
(Get down 'til the lights come up)
Everybody's movin'
So play it again.

Know a place out by the lake
Where the DJ loves to play.
Lays tracks down like an art.
Gonna tear this place apart.

Ooh, ooh, it's got my heart mad beatin'.
Ooh, ooh, it's beatin' good.

CHORUS

BRIDGE
When the beat's turned up this way
You wanna dance all night
Always feel the same (3x)

CHORUS (3x)
Track Name: All Night
I picture you while I'm lying here trying to sleep.
I wonder if you're ever lying there thinking of me.
Right on cue,
I get a ring from you.
It's like you're reading my mind.
I'm wide awake
And it's more than I can take
When I hear your voice on the line.

CHORUS
You turn to me and say
I wanna play this game
It's hard to stay behaved
When you're in my sight.
You know I love the chase
These are our golden days.
It's hard to stay behaved.
You're feeling just right.
So put your game face on
(All: We're playing all night!)
We're right where we belong
(All: We're playing all night!)
So take a chance on this
(All: We're playing all night!)
Just think of what we'd miss
(All: We're playing all night!)

Get in my car, it's pretty far just to meet you halfway.
A little diner open all night off the freeway.
Shame on me
What would people think?
But with you I forget to care.
With your hand in mine
And those big blue eyes
You don't know how to play fair.

CHORUS

BRIDGE
Nobody, Nobody makes me feel this way.
Nobody, Nobody makes me feel the same. (3x)

We're playing all night!

So put your game face on
(All: We're playing all night!)
We're right where we belong
(All: We're playing all night!)
So take a chance on this
(All: We're playing all night!)
Just think of what we'd miss
(All: We're playing all night!) (2x)
Track Name: Remember Me
I found our picture tucked inside my favorite book.
So worn and weathered, but I loved the way we looked.
Two bad haircuts and our sneaker fitted feet.
There was a spark back then that only we could see.
And it's a wonder to go back to where we've been
A world before our lives began--

Pre-Chorus
With just you and me
And hours driving endlessly to clear our own heads
Yeah you, and me
Back before we could remember everything we'd forget.

CHORUS
Remember me
And the way we use to be.

The night you left I snuck outside my parent's house
We walked in quiet but our thoughts were so damn loud.
You held my hand the way you did when we were kids.
We didn't want it all to change but then it did.
Two different worlds and different towns and different lives.
We didn't know the things we'd find--

Pre-Chorus
With just you and me
And years that fuse together every time I look back.
Yeah you, and me
How the hell did we lose track?

CHORUS
Remember me
And the way we used to be
Remember me
That's how I want to be.

BRIDGE
I've got this feeling coming over me. (6x)
I got this feelin--(4x)

CHORUS (3x)
Track Name: Running
There you go again
Actin' like a fool
Underneath my skin
Tryin' to get me riled up.
But I’m just sittin' here like—

CHORUS
Don’t you go running off your mouth this time
Don’t you go telling everybody your lies
Don’t you go runnin', runnin', runnin'

POST-CHORUS
It’s not my fault (Whoa)
No it’s not my fault. (Whoa)
It’s not my fault. (Whoa)
That you didn’t wanna to let me in.

Once upon a time
I was so in love
Thought you were the one
And it’s all because you had me going.
But I’m not the same
That I used to be
I won’t play your games
Even though you’re trying
‘Cause you love it when they’re watching

CHORUS (2x)

POST-CHORUS

BRIDGE
Put on your mask, Baby.
Think of what you lack, Darling.
This is not my fault.
This is not my fault.
Blame it all one me, Sweetheart.
But it’s plain to see, Honey,
This is not my fault.
This is not my fault.

INTERLUDE CHORUS
Don’t you go—
Don’t you go running off your mouth this time.
Don’t you go
Tellin’ everybody your lies.

CHORUS (2x)
POST-CHORUS

Blame it on me
If that’s what you need
Just keep running,
Just keep running.
Track Name: Rain
I've been sitting here alone
Feeling sorry for myself.
I've been praying that you'd call
But it's always someone else.
And the words I wanna say
They keep building in my head,
What I should and shouldn't do.
When's this dry spell gonna end?

CHORUS
When's it gonna rain?
When's it gonna pour?
'Cause you don't love me anymore.
You don't love me anymore.
When's it gonna crash?
Something's gotta give.
'Cause you don't love me anymore.
You don't love me anymore.
(Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah) 3x

I just need to hear it said
I don't want to feel your ghost.
Seems like I just can't move on
'Til you tell me there's no hope.
And the memory's long replayed.
Going over in my head,
What you did and didn't say.
What I wish you'd said instead.

CHORUS

BRIDGE
When it all comes crashing down
Won't you feel so sorry now.
That you went out so damn low.
Couldn't muster up the words
Just to let me go.

CHORUS
But now it's gonna rain!
Now it's gonna pour!
'Cause I don't love you anymore
I don't love you anymore!
Now it's gonna crash!
Something went and gave!
I don't love you anymore
I don't love you anymore!
Now it's gonna rain
Now it's gonna pour!
Now it's gonna crash and burn
'Cause something's giving
Crash and burn
'Cause I don't love you anymore.
(Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah) 3x
Track Name: Hurricane
Yesterday
For the first time in a long time
I kept my head above water.
You kept your head above water.
I can't say that anything will ever change
But maybe that could be okay
'Cause then we'll always stay this way.

CHORUS
So come on, come on, come on
I need to feel you closer, closer.
I wanna hear you whisper my name
Like the calm of a storm in the eye of a hurricane. (2x)

INTERLUDE
Come on, come on closer
Come on, come on closer
Come on, come on closer
Come on.


They all say
We're crazy to feel this way
To keep on holding so tightly
That that's never the right thing.
But I say
That even if it ends in flames
That you would be my best mistake
I wouldn't have it any other way.

CHORUS (2x)

INTERLUDE

BRIDGE
I hear you whisper
I hear you whispering my name.
And you don't know yet,
But I'll never be the same.
And you don't know why
You don't know why it's changed
Like the eye of a hurricane.
You're like the eye of a hurricane.

CHORUS (1X)
INTERLUDE (1x)

Like the calm of a storm
In the eye of a hurricane.
Track Name: Feels Like You
You're long gone and I feel it now
And I don't know how to figure out
Exactly what I did.
'Cause remember when it was you and me
How the world made sense and it came so easily?
Like we were kids.

CHORUS
I just want somebody who
Makes me feel like you
Makes me feel like anything is possible.
Want somebody who
Makes me feel like you do
Where'd you go now?
No one feels like you.
No one feels like you.

Close my eyes and I'm back again
Four years younger and I'm your best friend
Playing guitar in the park behind my house.
And the night we drank the blackberry wine
And had shopping cart races in the parking lot
I wish that we could still be that way now.

CHORUS (2x)
I just want somebody who
Makes me feel like you
Makes me feel like anything is possible.
Want somebody who
Makes me feel like you do
Where'd you go now?
Where'd you go now?

Where'd you go now? (5x)

BRIDGE
And the world moves slow
When you're not mine to hold
And the years move fast
When you keep looking back!
When you keep looking!

CHORUS (1x)
Want somebody
Need somebody like you!
Want somebody
Need somebody.
Where'd you go now? (5x)
