Track Name: By Design
You might wonder
Are we here by our design
Over, under
We are looking for a sign

We are listening
For the beat from outer space
We’re so tired
Running in this human race

Ba da da da
Ba da da da da da da
Ba da da da
Ba da da da da da da

And the rain came
It washed us all away (washed us all away)
All we wanted was the time to play (at least that’s what they say)
And the crossing over
To each other
Is so hard to do
Such a distance between me and you

It’s so quiet
As we round and round the sun
But I am certain
We are not the only ones

‘Cause here’s a message
We can send it to the sky
And we can wonder
But we cannot wonder why

Oooooh, oooooh, oooooh hahhh

And the rain came
And washed us all away
All we wanted was the time to play
And the rain came
And washed us all away (washed us all away)
All we wanted was the time to play (at least that’s what they say)
And the crossing over
To each other
Is so hard to do
Such a distance between me and you
Ba da da da
Track Name: Lost At Sea
My heart is a sinking vessel
My head is filled with blood
The voices ringing in my ears
Of those of every woman I have loved

I will not set foot upon the mountain
Though I know it must be such a sight to see
I will turn and face the wrong direction
This’d be a good day to get lost at sea

I’m dreaming in another language
There’s talk of decision among the ranks
The natives are a-growing restless
And I’ve got a bad case of the shakes

I will not set foot upon the mountain
Though I know it must be such a sight to see
I will turn and face the wrong direction
This’d be a good day to get lost at sea

Somewhere God is in a casket
The dogs are circling round
Waiting with tireless patience
For their master to rise up from the ground

I will not set foot upon the mountain
Though I know it must be such a sight to see
I will turn and face the wrong direction
This’d be a good day to get lost, a good day to get lost, a good day to get lost at sea
Track Name: How It Used To Be
It’s not my place
To recognize who’s at fault
But then again
I ain’t dyin’ to get off
And on shaky days, this child will never let all of this
Stack up so high on you
No teardrops
On your eyelids

‘Cause this ain’t how it used to be
But this ain’t how it used to be
No this ain’t like it used to be
No this ain’t how it’s gonna be

It’s never clear
How much weight
We can take
I’m always here to keep an eye
On the place
The nights won’t be so hard because I will get your back
I won’t put this off on you
No teardrops
On your eyelids

‘Cause this ain’t how it used to be
No this ain’t how it used to be
This ain’t like it used to be
No this ain’t how it’s gonna be
Track Name: Main Street Parade
Big balloons
Soarin’ high, all floatin’ down the lane
What to do
I lost you
In your main street parade
The stream upstream
People screamin’ and the children smile and wave

I got a thrill
Just us two
Walkin’ in the park
Simple times
Left behind
Still shinin’ in the dark
It’s not complicated
I don’t need a big production
All I want is your sweet lovin’

Another night
Fireworks
Explodin’ in your sky
Slight of hand
Looking up
Instead of in your eye

It’s not complicated
I don’t need a big production
All I want is your sweet lovin’
Can’t fight the crowd pushin’ and shovin’
All I want is your sweet lovin’

We learn to forgive when we make mistakes
Sometimes we give, sometimes we take
And every mornin’ when I wake I see

Big balloons
Soarin’ high, all floatin’ down the lane
What to do
I lost you
In your main street parade

You make it complicated
I don’t need a big production
All I want is your sweet lovin’
Can’t fight the crowd pushin’ and shovin’
All I want is your sweet lovin’
What to do
I lost you
In your main street parade
Track Name: Passing Over
I’ve been lost since you’ve been found
The weather has turned around
Everything but the sun’s gone down
Mmmmhmm

I was young and you were there
Was to blame but didn’t care
And now I can’t find it anywhere
Mmmmhmm

I was holdin’ your hand
I was holdin’ so tight
I was holdin’ your hand
I was holdin’ so tight
Passin’ over
Passin’ over
Passin’ over from me

Now the talk has left the town
And the dust has settled down
And my feet hold for steady ground
Mmmmhmm

I was holdin’ your hand
I was holdin’ so tight
I was holdin’ your hand
I was holdin’ so tight
Passin’ over
Passin’ over
Passin’ over from me
From me
From me

Passin’ over
Passin’ over
Passin’ over
Passin’ over
Passin’ over
Passin’ over
Passin’ over from me
Track Name: Other Side
A man on his way to work spills coffee on his tie
A woman with a suitcase and a tear in her eye
Young boy with a beer in his hand on the way to a DUI
Over water, crossing time
The stories that pass me by

We’re all on our way
Movin’ on through another day
Travelin’ down the same road
With different lives
Just tryin’ to get to the other side

Medic with a siren tryin’ to save another soul
Old man and a pickup truck with a boy and fishin’ pole
A truck driver with a sad face carryin’ a heavy load
Over water, crossing time
The stories that pass me by

We’re all on our way
Movin’ on through another day
Travelin’ down the same road
With different lives
Just tryin’ to get to the other side

Over water, crossing time
The stories that pass me by

We’re all on our way
Movin’ on through another day
Travelin’ down the same road
With different lives yeah, yeah
Just tryin’ to get to the other side

We’re all on our way
Movin’ on through another day
Travelin’ down the same road
With different lives
Just tryin’ to get to the other side

We’re all on our way
Movin’ on through another day
Travelin’ down the same road
With different lives
Just tryin’ to get to the other side
Track Name: Don’t Tear That Steel Bridge Down
Don’tcha don’tcha tear that steel bridge down
You got no reason to steal a piece of this town
Don’tcha don’tcha tear that steel bridge down
You got no right to steal a piece of this town

Headin’ out on a Friday night
Someone’s waitin’ on the other side
Tear it down, can’t see my baby tonight
My baby yeah

Don’tcha don’tcha tear that steel bridge down
You got no reason to steal a piece of this town
Don’tcha don’tcha tear that steel bridge down
You got no right to steal a piece of my town

There are things worth more than gold
Even when they’re boring and old
Tear it down before the whole story is told
Before the story is told

Don’tcha don’tcha tear that steel bridge down
You got no reason to take apart my town
Don’tcha don’tcha tear that steel bridge down
You got no right to take a piece of my town

I have to get across to you
So that new bridge will have to do
They tear it down, they take a piece of me too
Take a piece of me too

Don’tcha tear that old bridge down
Don’tcha tear that old bridge down
Don’tcha tear that old bridge down
Don’tcha tear that old bridge down
Don’tcha tear that old bridge down

Yeah
Track Name: The Bridge Goes Up & The Bridge Goes Down
The bridge goes up, the bridge goes down
Joins two halves of this little town
Now everybody can gather round
‘Cause the bridge goes up and the bridge goes down

There’s a line of cars about ten miles long
That’s enough time to sing this song
Take a new bridge and that would be wrong
There’s a line of cars about ten miles long

The bridge went up and a boat went through
Made big trouble for a little canoe
Now there’s a woman in a bubble with a bad hairdo
The bridge went up and a boat went through

Don’t you honk, don’t you yell
Waitin’ for the bridge, can’t you tell
Impatient people tend to go to hell
Don’t you honk, don’t you yell

The bridge goes up, the bridge goes down
Joins two halves of this little town
Now everybody can gather round
‘Cause the bridge goes up and the bridge goes down
Now everybody can gather round
‘Cause the bridge goes up and the bridge goes down
Now everybody can gather round
‘Cause the bridge goes up and the bridge goes down
