Track Name: Eternal Sunshine
You can run through amber waves
Catch south sea pearls by the bay
But the Summer yellow days are only fun
Because someone brings the Sun

She's got pith and wit and she revels in it
Never ashamed to be admired
Even though she's all about the law
It's her Grace that makes her so desired

But get on her bad side and like the Dodo you're out of luck
But she beams so bright you wouldn't want to lose that light
Because she's got, Eternal Sunshine

Eternal Sunshine, Eternal Sunshine, Eternal Sunshine

You don't need Coppertone, you don't need Zinc
She is hot but she won't burn you alive
The more you know her, the less you're able
To Freeze the heat inside

Blazing fire on a blanket of snow
Tall beacon piercing the darkness
A gift like hers isn't one to harness
Yet you hope she don't let you go

Gliding on the water or dancing in the sky it's a dazzling sight to behold
I'm so hypnotized I realize I'm blind, but I'm better off than before
because I've got, Eternal Sunshine

Eternal Sunshine, Eternal Sunshine, Eternal Sunshine

Some say the moon is better,
But when's the moon left a good mark?
Moonshine makes folks blabber and wetter
And Mondays are terrible days to start

Sundays you can relax and party
and Sunshine brings smiles and good cheer
Making rainbows out of water falling
And bringing springtime, year after year

...

Because I've got, Eternal Sunshine...
Track Name: The Best Man
I'm The Best Man
Why'd ya settle for this man?
You know I'm your number one fan!
And He doesn't make the Top Ten...

You say you found true love..You think that he's the best?
If you're glad with good enough, then why call me up to ask...
"Can you hang out tonight?..I wanna feel alright.."
What's the reason you keep this boyfriend for, anymore?

You say that we're good friends? I think it's more along these lines
That you're just scared to death that if you leave this guy he'll die...
You know that I'm right, he knows you won't take flight
Is this sacrifice worth it for this kinda guy?

I'm The Best Man
Why just settle for this man?
You know I'm your number one fan!
And He doesn't make the Top Ten...

I've got one plan
It starts by leaving these badlands
Melting together with our hands
And keeping the faith til kingdom come.

...

I've followed the path you've paved and asked me to take
I don't know what else you need, what else it takes
You need to have the best one by your side
And the one you're with ain't that kind of guy
But you've said I'm that kind of guy
And it drives my mind crazy every tiiiiiiiiiime!

I'm The Best Man
Why'd ya settle for this man?
You know I'm your number one fan!
And He doesn't make the Top Ten...

I've got one plan
it starts by leaving these badlands
Melting together with our hands
And keeping the faith til Kingdom Come

...

If any person can show just cause why this couple should not be joined together, speak now or forever hold your peace...


I'm The Best Man!
Why just settle for this man?
You know I'm your number one fan!
And He doesn't make the Top Ten...

I've got one plan
it starts by leaving these badlands
Melting together with our hands
And keeping the faith til Kingdom Come, I'm the Best Man!
Track Name: Highlighter
To Say I love you is to say that I commit
I don't think I'm that responsible yet
I don't want to risk or ruin a beautiful thing
So I'll adore you from a distance

Cause like a

Highlighter, you brighten the pages of my life
And like a Piece by Dalí, you please and intrigue me when I
look or think of you, it's very true

Jessica:
I thank you for being my friend, throughout the years
I know if I need someone you'll come and volunteer
You're so truthful, joyful, loving, and sincere
If I need a love it's crystal clear

Cause like a

Highlighter, you brighten the pages of my life
and like a sweet smoothie, you soothe me with all of your
blended together fruits, all so ripe

David:
Maybe tomorrow I'll assert and propose
And give you chocolates and a rose
I might have better ideas further down the road
I just want to show you that I love you, love you!

David:
To say I love you is to say that I commit

Jessica:
And to linger longer would be your great regret

David:
I'll be your man and keep you warm and safe and calm

Together:
Our faith and trust will keep us strong!

cause like a

Highlighter you brighten the pages of my life
and like a
Film and Camera, there's so much to capture and develop now
that we have the right lens
and like a
sweet smoothie you soothe me with all of your blended together fruits
all so ripe
and like a
Highlighter, you brighten the pages of my life...all the time...all the time
Track Name: Life Complete
You're 1-2-3, I'm 3-4-5,
We rooted bud and blossomed vine
Harvest never better or taste so sweet
Walked too fast for other's toes,
been spurned by countless bros and hos
but living life with you, is living life complete.

Ranger Danger in my face
Swerving nights I can't erase
I wish every getaway was clean and neat
The evil urge to run is gone
the dawn is bright the west is won
I repeat, living life with you is living life complete

All Things Pink and All Drinks Clear
Bacon Cheeseburgers Disappear
You're the only one who can make me lose my seat
If I can't remember, it can't be great
I'm so grateful for these daily plates
I repeat, living life with you is living life complete

Nobody can put out our everlasting spark
We're spry with more than five to make a mark
You're gonna challenge me head on and help me grow
You're gonna be loved beyond what I think I even know

Arguments no longer powered
Still tragedies strike swift and sour
In the end death's the one thing we can't beat
But before we croak to crypt down under
We'll live and share with flair and wonder
I repeat, living life with you is living life complete

Alabama maid gave a voice to silent hands
Deaf Maestro composed universal ode to joy
Paralyzed Garcon fluttered butterfly by one eye
These folks lived great but had life rough
I'm glad you're fine and laugh at my stuff

If someone else like you existed
I'd never know and prob'ly miss it
I'm glad you're the one I had to meet
My world didn't turn around
Til I lost myself in you and found
living life with you is living life complete
Living life with you, is living life complete... :)
Track Name: Flood Over Me (Emily)
She lives so far, She's never on
She takes her time, and she won't let me turn the clock
Emily, I'm all wrung out
And I'm drowning in this drought

Flood Over Me.
Flood and Fill Me, Emily
Flood and Flow Through Me.

I've found your faults, and you've found mine
We only found them cause we cared to take the time
Emily, I'm all wrung out
And I'm drowning in this drought

Flood Over Me.
Flood and fill me, Emily
Flood and Flow Through Me.

We understand, We know what's true
But why am I alone saying I Love You?
Emily, I'm all wrung out
And I'm drowning in this drought

Flood Over Me.
Flood and fill me, Emily
Flood and Flow Through Me...
Track Name: TattleTaylor
Nashville Chicks prepared for KFC
They're tasty guilty pleasures for 12.93
Kinky Blonde Toothpick thinks that she's high class
Tells all the boys that they can kiss her ass

And if they don't pucker, well then they're gonna suffer
Gonna burn down in swift revenge

TattleTaylor, Oh! TattleTaylor!
You're such a craver, but say all men are dangers
TattleTaylor, Oh! TattleTaylor!
So what about John Mayer, we all know he's a player

TattleTaylor,
Grudges give us Vaders, and who needs ventilators? do us all a favor,
GROW UP AND MOVE ON!

Fairytale Dreaming with no Prince to complete
This Dragon can't see fire when she breathes
With grammies and veemees and ceemees to mount,
Gone worldwide platinum, Gained Critics' clout

She's got every cent to pay but with every word she say
They only last for a day!

TattleTaylor, Oh! TattleTaylor!
Selling your shout-outs don't mean that you're braver
TattleTaylor, Oh! TattleTaylor!
You're just like Kanye, you just pull on the triggers later

TattleTaylor,
Please stop playing slayer, there's time to dodge the nadir, do us all a favor,
GROW UP AND MOVE ON!

...

Tattle..Taylor..Taaaattle Taylor Swift!
You're not sixteen, so can we end this routine, now baby
Tattle..Taylor..Taaaattle Taylor Swift!
Did you think the dude from brokeback could really love a-you back
Tattle..Taylor..Taaaattle Taylor Swift!
If you don't make corrections, you'll be stuck one direction
Tattle..Taylor..Taaaattle Taylor Swift!
Exactly who's supposed to belong with you?
Exactly who's supposed to belong with you?

TattleTaylor,
Grudges give us Vaders, and who needs ventilators? Do us all a favor:
GROW UP AND MOVE ON!
Track Name: Look Here
Destiny's alright when it's in your favor,
I've prayed a thousand prayers, but still there's no good answers
Why does God strand us and save Goldman Sachs
What's the lesson to be learned?
Do I throw my fist at God, Do I throw it at the Church
Do I throw it at the law, do I throw just cause it hurts?
I don't know what to do, but I know I need to get it done

Stranded in the cold, from all the firing
locked out here with nowhere hiring
More than growing numbers, we're real flesh and blood
The people rising up and singing

Look Here!
We're living through the now,
With our lives in the air and our dreams on the ground
We're stranded, we're sweating, but look here,
We won't throw the towel!

New jobs now are outsourced abroad
The modern workforce made of foreign slaves and claws
I'm glad the DC folks care for those down in the valley
But understand this well
That's our own damn fault,
We gave them the power, we gave them the raise
but now there's time for us, for us to make a change!
We're mad as hell and we've had enough!

We can't choose how we're born, but
We can pick what we die for
I want to live for you, I want to die for you
I'm gonna stand by you, I'm gonna march with you
but we can't be alone...I mean just

Look Here
With our lives in the air and our dreams on the ground
We're fighting, we're bleeding, but look here,
We won't throw the towel!

I can't promise that you won't bleed,
I can't promise that you'll succeed,
But I know a better life begins when you and me
take a stand I mean just

Look Here!
We're living through the now,
With our lives in the air and our dreams on the ground
We're stranded, we're sweating, but look here,
We won't throw the towel!
I mean just Look Here!
We're living through the now,
With our lives in the air and our dreams on the ground
We're stranded, we're sweating, we're fighting, we're bleeding,
but look here,
We won't throw the towel!
Track Name: Healing Hands
Sweet Things, Pretty Women like to smile out loud
Bitter bros can't take it they just whine and howl
Wait up, wait up now, back up
I've never kissed, undressed, or felt fans

Wealthy, Trendy, Stuffy, he's got everything
Happy, Laughing, rolling cause he's made of dough
Wait up wait up now, back up
I've got debts that step and checks that bounce

Running where I don't know
It smells like something's creeping
Window quickly closing need to
Find some space, oh won't you
Feel My Fever and touch me with your healing hands

Vices, Pisces, Pieces, greases, fine lined mines
Season's Reason's feelings, leaving right for rights
Break Down, Break down...Let Down
A knight at night can't fight dressed in rust

Acting as an alien
Stitched inside this body
Breathing fine but nothing
Dive and stop my drowning
Won't you feel my fever and touch me with your healing hands
Fold my Faults and embrace me with your healing hands

Put my...best foot forward
Still I...slip and stumble
Kneeling...now I'm crawling, calling out..for..walk..ing
Won't you feel my fever and touch me with your healing hands
Fold My Faults and embrace me with your healing...
Sow my Soul and save me with your healing haaaaan-DZA!

Touch me, Save me, grow me and raise me
Feel my fever--Hold me embrace me
Touch me, Save me, grow me and raise me --

...

Won't you Sow my Soul
Sow my Soul
Fold my Faults
Feel my Fever
Won't you feel my fever..
Can you fold my faults..
Won't you feel my fever..TOUCH ME SAVE ME
Can you fold my faults..GROW ME RAISE ME
I beg you sow my soul!..HOLD ME EMBRACE ME
Won't you feel my fever..TOUCH ME SAVE ME
Can you fold my faults..GROW ME RAISE ME
I beg you sow my soul!..HOLD ME EMBRACE ME

Hey, Hey!...Healing Hands....Hey, Hey!...Healing Haaaaannndss...
Track Name: Miss Direct
It goes on, this playlist repeats
And the hold button is broke
It’s a searing sunkiss
It’s a reminder that I won’t soon forget
Now I could expect the lack of connect
If it were another instead
But we took this hike together
and, surprise we beat the weather
Did the morning glow scare you from home?

She can hit any target smaller than the palm of my hand.
But she can’t see the beauty of the Sistine Ceiling.
or the pleasure that a serenade can give
She thinks breathing means flexing your lungs
And that the heart only beats on its own
All her answers get A’s
But they don't explain what's best
I can't help to help, but she'll still go miss direct.

Llike a nail needs wax or a hammer.
Differently, we all need treatment applied
I’m don’t like to strike straight on with these rhymes
But after caressing and washing and painstaking detailing
Pampering what I thought a Swan, nothing more than a duck in the end
While she migrates at night
I might turn on the right
C’est la vie, missing me, and miss direct.
Track Name: Wish
Doubt, pressing every space
Lies repeat, grant me honest grace
Fresh incense fill the breeze
Swirling through my head
Led away beyond my wish.

Sea, waving over land
Help me hold, teach me with no hands
Quietly lifting up
Blue, yet brightly
Trust the bow after the storm

But lo, a marble saint
Stayed close while I suspended in darkness
hark, a light curve o'er my heart
I began praying out loud
Crying praises and new vows
And somehow landed on solid ground

Lakes, solace to survive
Take a drink, cool down passing by
Robins in Symphony
Lullaby my soul
While I hum their melody

Sea, waving over land
Help me hold, teach me with no hands
Quietly lifting up
Blue, yet brightly
Trust the bow after the storm

Daily, stainglass folks
Impress a most dazzling display
No mistaking their power
In life then and now

Yet I don't know the time
Blizzards blow while I pine
But one day I'll find
The I do from yours to mine

Doubt, pressing every space
Lies repeat, grant me honest grace
Fresh incense fill the breeze
Swirling through my head
Led away beyond my wish.
Track Name: Aurora
Stun Gun made a coinflip for California
Kissed her brothers tucked tight in their bed
Clothes and cash all packed and saved
For a spotlight role on a wide-eyed stage

Watch Prince Albert open his can of worms
Sing new songs with lonely, lowly men
Milk and Peppers soothe and burn
and a Motel Shower can wash the dirt

...

Madonna and Dick Tracy caught in surprise
They always get their man but now they've lost their minds
Sooner or later's best bet's in prayer
While she toils away to rein some favor

She may not be an undergrad
But she understands you can't live inside a flume
She may end up in vagrancy, but she's gotta chase her destiny

Aurora, brightly beaming, gently gleaming
Aurora, floating freely, dancing dreamily,
Aurora, trying to find a space to shine across the sky

Stun gun met Jean Jesus in a crowded room
They turn five words to daily sweet perfume
She trusts him fast, his aim is true
But when he hit his mark, she dropped the cue

It's hard to break a pattern
Only understanding one fashion, one design
She says it doesn't matter
She'd rather go back home, and leave the lights behind

Aurora, brightly beaming, gently gleaming
Aurora, floating freely, dancing dreamily,
Aurora, trying to find a space to shine across the sky
Track Name: Take Me Home
Fine Shining City
Why do you deceive?
After all I've done...Doing good, being Kind

All knowing people
Blind, Deaf, and Loud
I wish to love you...Sharing Joy, Giving Peace

Raise me up and Take Me Home
Leave my shell behind and lift my load
Raise me up and Take Me Home
I wanna live inside a living world

Pebbles have purpose
Ripples have reason
Why've I sprung this Season?..will I save? Or, Wipe a Slate?

Raise me up and Take Me Home
Leave my shell behind and lift my load
Raise me up and Take Me Home
I wanna live inside a living world

I won't take my thoughts and sheath them
I won't shift on how I stand
If I must suffer, then so be it,
I have a hope beyond the sand!

Raise me up and Take Me Home
Leave my shell behind and lift my load
Raise me up and Take Me Home
I wanna live inside a living world...
