Track Name: I Could
It's over – he says you're through
Another one who couldn't handle you

And all those other guys
If they knew what you were like
It would send them running for the hills
You say “with all that's wrong with me
and all the ways I'm crazy
Who could know all this and love me still?”
Well, I could, and you know I will
I will, I will

I love every side of you
You're crazy, but I'm crazy too

I wouldn't change a thing about you
And I could never live without you
Every dream of yours I will fulfil
You say “with all that's wrong with me
and all the ways I'm crazy
Who could know all this and love me still?”
You know that I could, and you know I will
You know I will
You know I will

CHORUS
Track Name: Safety Net Sue
It's been a long time since I felt this way
Like nothing on Earth could get me down
I was a lonely man but now I can say
That I'm the luckiest in town

Oh Sue, you're unlike anyone I've met before
But rest assured if anybody asks me for advice regarding you
I'll tell them and I'll tell them true
I'll tell them of the things I've learned
To keep their hearts from getting burned

Oh lovely Sue, she'll put a spell on you
She really is the best a man can get
But wait, before you dive please follow my advice
If you're gonna fall in love with Sue, then bring a safety net

When you meet her, man you'll soon find out
She's an angel with a twist
Your world is upside down when she's around
But when she's gone she's always missed

Her face is beautiful, her voice is haunting
She'll tear you up and leave you wanting more
You know it's true, but if you want to be with Sue
Then there's a heavy price to pay
I know because I learned the hard way

Lovely Sue, and all the things she'll do
She'll take you on a ride you won't forget
But wait, before you fall you better heed this call
If you're gonna fall in love with Sue, then bring a safety net

Lovely Sue, she'll put a spell on you
She really is the best a man can get
But wait, before you dive please follow my advice
If you're gonna fall in love with Sue
There's just one thing you gotta do...
Oh lovely Sue, and all the things she'll do
She'll take you on a ride you won't forget
But wait, before you fall you better heed this call
If you're gonna fall in love with Sue, then bring a safety net
Track Name: I'll Make Up The Rest
Everybody’s got a favourite song
Sing me yours and I'll try to sing along
And even if I get a few notes wrong
I'll make up the rest

Everybody wants to win first prize
No one ever wants to compromise
Guess that means I'll have to improvise
So I'll make up the rest

When the moonlight hits you just right
It's beauty like there's never been
But your sad eyes are the saddest sight
That mine have ever seen

Go on baby, go do what you do
You'll be dancing when the night is through
Start me off with just a line or two
And I'll make up the rest

BRIDGE

VERSE 1
Track Name: Go Ahead
Go ahead and try
Try to break me if you can
No one else has managed it so far
Though God knows they've tried hard

Go ahead, ask why
Ask me why I'm still here
I should by long gone by now, I know
But that's not me, so...

Every night and day I pray
I'll get my chance and have my say
It's just the life I lead
It's how things are, and how they'll stay

Go ahead and tell
Tell me one more story
It's a mystery how you expect me to believe it

Go ahead and play
Play the game like always
You should know by now that no one wins
And that's how it's always been

In the race to win and score
We lose track what we're playing for
It don't know what's worse
To just accept defeat or not compete

Go ahead and try
Go ahead, ask why
Track Name: The List
I really hope that I can stand tall
If I'm remembered well at the end of it all
I can say that I did okay
Yeah, that's the goal
And I'm hopeful that a handful
Of the people I meet will remember me

All I hope is that I make the list
Of the people who will be missed
When they say goodbye
That's all I want out of life
And you know if I make the list
I swear and I promise that before I go
I'll do something worth remembering

One day you're here and the next you're gone
But if you're lucky some part of you will live on
Through your kids or the things you said and did
To make a make, to make an impact
To live a life that I'm proud of when I look back
Is that too much to ask?

CHORUS x3
Track Name: Next Time
If I had more time
I'd make this whole world just yours and mine
And we'd live each day our own way
With no compromise

But it's not to be
The only solution that I can see
Is to make sure we seize every chance
And every opportunity

'Cause it seems that every time we meet
Our time together’s always short and sweet
I’d like to stay a little longer
But the song is almost over
I’ll catch up with you next time

It's just how I feel
That this situation is far from ideal
But we'll have to make do
And we will do until the dream is real

'Cause we always have so little time
In each other's company
And every time you leave me wanting more
You have a way of making
A place feel just like home
Even if I’ve never been there before

'Cause it seems that every time we meet
Our time together’s always short and sweet
I wish I could stay a little longer
But the show is almost over
I’ll catch up with you next time
