Track Name: Disaster
What a beautiful day for disaster
She sold me lies
In between the what's and whys
And the silence that came after
Until I spoke... or at least I tried

I knew that you could be a runner
But I never thought you'd give me the, the run around
I'm a fool, I'm a fool, I'm a fool to think that I was keeping you
Looks like I was keeping you down


CHORUS
I locked my love in walls too strong to fall or shatter
You raised your arms to lift me up, lift me up, to let me down
And if it's not me you see or my heart that your after
Then tell me and I'll go, cause if you don't let me know, then I'll be..
…(just another memory)


You know that...
That babe we’re breathing deep
What I say, what I do doesn’t mean shit to you
So I’ve closed this door and lost the key


CHORUS


Now, it’s done
I’ve lost, you’ve won
Slow fade, end scene
It’s all, been a dream


CHORUS
Track Name: Fallin'
I, I know,
That I may be a foolish man
Cause no matter how hard I try
I know you got me in the palm of your hand

You ain’t acting right
I deserve more than what you’re giving me
Staying out all night with no call,
And I know, I should just pick up and leave

But I just keep fallin', fallin', fallin'
For those games you play
And I keep crawlin', crawlin', crawlin'
Back for the love that we make


Anytime I get the courage to leave ya
I tell you why it’s gotta be this way
You tell me you just can’t believe that
I’d give up after all the work we gave

Well you take me in your arms (and I can’t let go)
And you give me those tender eyes
I try to resist your charm (but I can’t say no)
As you put my hand between your thighs…


But I just keep fallin', fallin', fallin'
For those games you play
And I keep crawlin', crawlin', crawlin'
Back for the love that we make


Well I’m tired of playing, tired of always saying
That I’m leaving you tonight
If I don’t scoot now then I’ll only stick around
So this is my goodbye


But I just keep fallin', fallin', fallin'
For those games you play
And I keep crawlin', crawlin', crawlin'
Back for the love that we make
Track Name: Rich
Well it’s an uphill battle when life keeps throwing boulders
Just want to the load to lighten up while we gettin’ older
But you stand strong, and keep love on your side
Smiles all the while though you’re hurting inside

You see angels, may come in disguise
The tears are gonna prove to be the cheers in time
Embracing the struggle, hand-in-hand
A strong superwoman with a rock of a man

Money’s getting hard, battles of health
But love is gonna prove we got unlimited wealth
Money’s getting hard, battles of health
But this love is gonna prove we got unlimited wealth, 'cause…

(We Rich) Oh cause we got each other
(We Rich) Loving parents, sons and daughters
(We Rich) In the face of it all we sing
If we stand strong together we can do anything

…Ain’t it a beautiful sign
Ain’t no limit to what we can do with our powers combined
We gone work hard together, got each other forever
If we hold on strong we gon’ make it through whatever

You got a problem, you just come to me
No judgment involved, I’ll listen happily
And I know, if I’m feeling beat down or low
You gone be there for me like I was there before

Even if money is hard, and we got battles of health
This love is gonna prove we got unlimited wealth
Oh if the money is hard, and we got battles of health
This love is gonna prove we got unlimited wealth, Cause…

(We Rich) Oh cause we got each other
(We Rich) Loving parents, sons and daughters
(We Rich) In the face of it all we sing
If we stand strong together we can do anything

L-O-V-E gonna get us through
Because you got me, and I got you
L-O-V-E gonna get us through
Because you got me, and I got you
Track Name: The Way
Let me take the time to say
I can’t believe you found a way
To break down this wall
That I had around me for much too long

It’s as if you already knew (already kneeeeew)
Already knew just what to do
To pick me up (Pick me up) Now I can’t let go (No-oo-oo)
And I wanna tell the world exactly what I know


I thought this kind of love was only in my dreams
But darling with each new day, it gets better (and better) than I ever could believe


CHORUS
(I can’t believe the way)
The way that you love me


There just ain’t no better way
Then waking up to your smiling face
Ain’t no place I’d rather be
Than right her with you next to me

So you don’t have to worry at all (worry at all)
We’ve climbed too high for us to fall
Cause I’ll pick you up (pick you up)
And you know it’s real (Re-ee-eal)
And I wanna tell the world exactly how I feel


Now I know this love ain’t only in my dreams
Cause darling with each new day, it gets better (and better) than I ever could believe


CHORUS


BRIDGE
Now we both know we can carry on
We been through rough times but never fall
Ain’t no turning back
Cause I’m learning that
That I need you in my life baby

Cause there ain’t nothing that can get in our way
We gon’ share in each and every day
Just you and me, and a family
I'm so thankful to say, I can’t believe the way


CHORUS
Track Name: Push On
Written by: Lyle Divinsky


Say sister I see you walking with your head down
Is it cause you got something on your mind
Does it feel like the world done dealt you a hand that meant to lose
You keep getting knocked down no matter how you try
You got a four-year-old daughter
With another on the way
Making money’s getting harder
It seems there’ll never be a brighter day, but you gotta push on.

Say brother I see you with that swagger in your step
Can’t nobody hold you down
Behind the scenes you’re screaming cause the woman you love done up and left
And it’s feeling like the tears gon’ make you drown
But you gotta love your mind and body
Before you’re loving someone else
Finding happiness in somebody
Comes from finding happiness within yourself, you gotta push on

And I say la, da, da, da, dat da…. x2 (Sing with me the second time)

Take a look in the mirror and I barely even recognize myself
It’s a stranger looking me in the eye
I’m lost in city living, done changed to somebody else
Feel like the child in me done said goodbye
But I gotta smile at the struggle
Gotta stand tall through the pain
Though it feels like I’m the only
I know that you’re going through the same, but we gotta push on

If we come together we gon’ push on
Smile on your brother and we gon’ push on
Lift your sister and we gon’ push on
Love yourself and we gon’ push on
Track Name: Carry On
Love or leave me baby
Push or pull me in
Ain't got no time for maybes
So honey lets begin

I've spent 6 weeks waiting
I'm sure you've got your doubts
But I've used up all my patience
You're either in or out


Now they said you were trouble
Trouble is free
I'm paying fines for the times you mistreated me
These accusations ain't helping the hurtin
But baby one thing's for certain


CHORUS
But if you're gonna carry on
I'm gone I'm through with this
You got a man that goddamn you're gonna miss

So you can carry on
I'm done with manipulation
The situation, I flipped it

Cause if you carry on
Too long, you screwed with this
You had a plan I can't stand
I'm gotta quit

A man like me don't come for free
If you ain't down for what I need
Than you can turn around and carry on


I'm sure I'd miss you honey
If I thought I'd get my way
But there's no use in pretending
Because everything has changed


You spent the love that I had
Stole my soul in between
I bought into your games
Ain't left with a thing

I'm ashamed of the past, the future's unseen
I've become the kind of man I never thought I would be
So lets quit the blame, no need to get heavy
So pack up all your things and get ready


CHORUS


Get gone...


CHORUS
Track Name: Uneven Floors
I wanna know your body like i know your mind,
And we can live forever or at least we'll try,
My eyes are keeping record of your every move,
Tell me that you love me even if its untrue,


I wanna know your body like I know this steel,
Your living proof that heaven is real,
At war with truth in the words you say,
But tell me that you love me anyway,


We gotta make a choice so,
Do we love or let go,
And I'm asking for an answer though the ends unknown,
And she needs me and she knows it,
But she'll put me to rest,
Her voice a loaded weapon and I'm worried i'm next..
Track Name: Hit Man
I’ve been alone,
For far too long now,
I’ve forgot what it means
To love free
I had all I could ever ask for,
But one day she didn’t,
Didn’t come on home to me

Oh I’ve been waiting (waiting), oh but it’s in vain
Guess you’d call it another heart struck by the hit man

Well fuck you cupid, where the hell you been?
Could’ve used you before she walked out my door, way back then
I been hopeless (hopeless you see)
Oh, I’ve been moping (a little bitch indeed, Ooooh)
Picking up the pieces ain’t been easy as I thought it’d be
So as much as I’m trying (trying), I know that it’s all the same
Just another heart struck by the hit man
Just another heart struck by the hit man

Bridge
Well I’m tired of waiting… Waiting to see
If that cold-hearted woman, gon’ run back home to me
But I can’t (No I can’t), take much more (Take much mo-ore)
(Ooooooh)Of this spell that she, has right over me
I gotta, I gotta, break Freeeeeeeeeeeee

Outro Vamp
I’ve got to break free, I’ve got to break free
I’ve got to break free hey-ee-ay-ay……
Track Name: You Want to Leave (feat. Phil Divinsky)
All that I need
You’ve been offering
Now that I’m wondering
You want to leave

It’s seems like, just yesterday
When everything, was going my way
You were trying, now you’re crying
And I just couldn’t see


That the woman, I was needing
Was the woman, I was fleeing
Now I’m a broken man pleading, for you to come home


CHORUS


You always have been, my dream
And it took me losing you, to (make this blind man) see
Now I’m trying, and you’re denying
But I just can’t let that be

Come here woman! Let me prove
Oh!! Pretty darling what I’m gonna do for you
I’m gonna give you my heart, my soul, the sun and moon


If you would only, Give me a chance
I did you wrong, but please understand
I admitted, to my mistakes,
I’m committed, to do what it takes
If you can forgive me and oh I pray
Then I’ll work harder every day,
To love you in every way,
Just tell me you’ll come home to staaaaaaay
Track Name: Serious Web
Girl you spin a serious web
And I’m entwined, in the ropes
Praying on the fears in my head
Cause you’re the hunter, and I’m the host

Crawling up the sides of my bed
I can’t leave, I need more
So baby let me settle the score
