I ALREADY KNEW I already knew I already knew In my heart So convincing, such a tale to tell A confusing lie that you tell so well I wondered when you would take the time To let me know you're leaving me behind I already knew I already knew In my heart Keep your secrets, keep your venom sting Go possess the next shiny thing It won't be long at your hungry pace You'll forget my name, you'll forget my face I already knew I already knew I already knew In my heart Shed your tears for a little while Behind your sorrow hides your smile Say goodbye and let it end I never mattered so don't pretend I already knew I already knew I already knew I already knew In my heart

Chance 03:55
Chance A silver cloud outside my window Lit so brightly from the moon Slow and silently began to slip away I wish it didn’t disappear so soon It slips away But it’s alright Come another night Another cloud I found a dollar on the sidewalk And bought the numbers for the day The governor thanked me for my money But the magic in my ticket did not pay No easy money But it’s alright There are more numbers On the way Everywhere I’ve been Everything I’ve done Has brought me to this circumstance Where would I be If I couldn’t see When the time was right for my chance Right place, right time Right place, at the right time Right place, right now I took a sip of holy water And poured the rest over my head She spoke to me with a lusty whisper Hallelujah was the word she said She said hallelujah And it’s alright That silver moonlight Was in her eyes

Feel 03:39
FEEL Seeing shades of light I never saw before Bright and shining in my eyes Dark and dreary don’t surround me anymore Satisfaction in a radiant sunrise I hear a symphony in every passing breeze A rhythm playing in the wind Scattered songs and tones and random melodies A new beat for my heart, a heart that wants to mend Do you feel This thing that I feel for you Do you feel This thing that I feel for you Private hopes and horoscopes I wonder if you’re reading my mind The compass spins around again Are we who we’re trying to find Do you feel This thing that I feel for you Do you feel This thing that I feel for you Do you feel the connection When you look in my direction Can you see a possibility come true Am I someone that you mention Do we share the same intention Are my crazy wishes reaching you Do you feel This thing that I feel for you Do you feel This thing that I feel for you

Will I Know 05:20
WILL I KNOW Will I know, will I ever know love again Will I know, will I ever know love again All the distance and all the time Has moved me on, so far away All I know and all that I feel Has turned to dust and blown away Will I know, will I ever know love again Will I know, will I ever know love again In my exile in my mind Reflect upon the wasted time Covet sunlight, purify I need a chance to make it right Will I know, will I ever know love again Will I know, Will I ever know love again Will I see, will I ever see light again Will I feel, will I ever feel warmth again Will I be, will I ever be free again Will I know, will I ever know love again

High and Low 03:11
HIGH AND LOW Two cheap pints and a bottle of wine I spent my money and I lost my mind The calendar says it’s another day on my own Dark dirty room with a sofa bed Hard drinking night hanging over my head A pistol in my pocket with one name left to go I’ll look for you high and low Where you run to is where I’ll go I’ll look for you high and low I will be the last sight in your shadow We played hard and we played fast You sold me out when you played me last I’m a free man now with payback on my mind I wrote my list, old friends of mine Who owe me money and who owe me time I got a pistol in my pocket with one name left to go I will be the last sight in your shadow When it got tough all of you were gone And there I stood with handcuffs on You set me up and you let me do your time I paid my debt and I paid yours too My life of crime will soon be through I got a pistol in my pocket with one name left to go I’ll look for you high and low Where you run to is where I’ll go I’ll look for you high and low I will be the last sight in your shadow

Messenger 05:21
MESSENGER A mob is making noise outside A promise made, no need to hide We’re friends today Stand tall, salute the flag My uniform is a tattered rag I stand away You see ships arrive from far away You try to stay alive, send them away I am a messenger I am not alone See the woman in her rags A metal cart with all her bags And you turn away I saw a shadow in the glass And heard a scream that didn’t last You laughed it all away The edge is sharpened now, so cut away Our eyes stare at the ground, all led astray But, I am a messenger And I am not alone Touch me, watch me Touch me, watch me Disappear Show me, tell me Show me, tell me What you hear I am a messenger And I am not alone I am a messenger And I am not alone
