Track Name: Year of the Horse
Try not to let it get to you
Another day full of bad news
In the year of the horse
Year of the horse
Year of the horse

Everything seems so strange
Your life is headed for a big change
In the year of the horse
Year of the horse
Year of the horse

And I just can't explain it
I guess I'll have to blame it on the year of the horse

The days go by so fast
When you're thinkin' to much of the past
In the year of the horse
Year of the horse
Year of the horse

Worry too much who to trust
It's all gonna end up rust
In the year of the horse
Year of the horse
Year of the horse
In the year of the horse
Year of the horse
Year of the horse

Always second guessing
It's hard to count your blessing in the year of the horse

Try not to let it get to you
Track Name: Bad Moon
Bad Moon is rising
Bad moon
Bad moon is rising
Bad moon
I would lie to change your mind
Bad Moon

The fall is coming
In June
I see it coming
Bad Moon
And you lie to yourself
Bad moon

It rises slowly
On you
It rises slowly
What can you do?
You just lie to yourself
Bad moon
Said you lie to yourself
Bad moon
Bad moon
Bad moon
Bad moon
Bad moon
Track Name: Say I'm Sorry
Wish I could say I'm sorry
Wish I could wish it all away
Wish I could say I'm sorry
But not today

Wish I could tell you I need you
That is just something I'll never do
Wish I could say I'm sorry
And you'd be sorry, too

Cause if I did, then you'd know that I'm leavin'
And it'll never be the same as it was before
If I did, then you'd think that I don't love you
Anymore

Cause if I did, then I know you'd be leavin'
And I'll never have what I've been waiting for
If I did, I just might find out you don't love me
Anymore

Wish I could say I'm sorry
We were not meant to happen this way
I just can't seem to remember not thinkin' 'bout you every day
And I'm thinkin' 'bout you every day
Still thinkin' 'bout you every day
Track Name: Do What?
Do What?
Do what you wanna do
Do What?
Do what you wanna do
Do What?
Do what you wanna do
Do What?
Do what you wanna do
Track Name: Invitation Only
Your beauty is invitation only
Your smile is invitation only
Your party is invitation only
Your lipstick is invitation only

Can I get an invitation?
Can I get an invitation?
Can I get an invitation?
Can I get an Invitation?

Your Dance is invitation only
Romance is invitation only
That look is invitation only
I'd steal it like a crook
But it's invitation only

Can I get an invitation?
Can I get an invitation?
Can I get an invitation?
Can I get an Invitation?
Track Name: Cryptic Smile
Pleased to meet you
Where you been
I had long since just given in
But I just eyed your cryptic smile
As you walked by

Once again I
Realize
I was taken by surprise
You can take me where you like
I'm too tired to fight

I don't need anyone, but you
You're the one that I've waited for
It's true
I don't need anyone, but you

Tell me now how
This all will end
Never mind I
Choose to pretend
You'll live a lifetime by my side
As more than a friend

I don't need anyone, but you
You're the one that I've waited for
It's true
I don't need anyone, but you

I don't need anyone, but you
You're the one that I've waited for
It's true
I don't need anyone, but you
Track Name: Pick It Up
Pick it up, pick it up, pick it up little darlin'
The feelin' that I get whenever you're around
Pick it up, pick it up, pick it up little darlin'
Are you pickin' up what I'm throwin' down?

Woah

Pick it up, pick it up, pick it up little darlin'
The feelin' that I get whenever you're around
Pick it up, pick it up, pick it up little darlin'
Are you pickin' up what I'm throwin' down?

Woah
Track Name: Too Tough
It's enough to know you want me
It's enough to know that I want you, too
Later on, we can let go our Egos
Later on, we'll know what to do

You're tryin' hard, but it's too tough to break it
One more time, and I think that we can make it

Is it time? So, someone told me
Is it time, or does time never quite make sense?
Is it fate lost in hieroglyphics?
Is it fate we go straight to our best defense?

You're tryin' hard, but it's too tough to break it
One more time, and I think that we can make it
Track Name: Absolutely Guaranteed
And I know what, what you need
Absolutely guaranteed
I know what you're lookin' for
I could give that to you
You know what you wanna do
I can give it to you, baby, one more time

If you listen to what I say
We could surely make it ok
If you listen to what I need you to hear
Track Name: Every Time
I knew before that you wanted more, but he took you for granted
You told me what was in store Always the same old score,
but you've got me enchanted

and every time that I see you cry I wanna love,
I wanna love you
I wanna love
I wanna love you

He left with you, although I wanted to
You thought I wasn't the right one
Now it's who blames who, you don't know what to do
I'll find out in the long run

Still every time that I see you cry I wanna love,
I wanna love you
I wanna love
I wanna love you

And every time that I see you cry...
Track Name: Love Redo
Love

I see you there
watching me
What do I care
who you want me to be?

Love

What do you know?
I'd like to see
I'll wait for you
To wait for me

Love

All this time
I should have known
Better leave
Well enough alone

Love
Track Name: Make a Change
Love is the way
To make a change
All I can say is
"What's your name"
"Make a change"

Ahh

Don't turn around
Der Kommissar's in town
Don't make a sound
He'll let you down
Don't turn around

Ahh
Track Name: Nobody's Ever
I still remember those nights, when you held me tight
I thought I treated you right, but now years have gone by

And nobody's ever gonna love me
Nobody's ever gonna love me
Nobody's ever gonna love me again
Track Name: Supposed To Be
It all turns out how it's supposed to be
But supposed to be's not you and me

I still remember you from before
When you were walking out my door
It all turned out how you had planned
So I put it all right in your hand

It's up to you what comes 'round here
Nothin' else but pain and fear
But they say it all turns out the way it's supposed to be
Guess supposed to be's not you and me
Yes, they say it all turns out the way it's supposed to be
But supposed to be's not you and me
Supposed to be's not you and me
Track Name: Not What They Wanna Hear
It's so much to say
What you've got to say
When it's not what they wanna hear

It's a lot to me
All I've got, you see
But it's not what they wanna hear for free

It's so much to say
What you've got to say
When it's not what they wanna hear
