Track Name: Hold It Together
Build a bridge
So you can go where you wanna go
Build it large enough, for all to flow
Build it strong for all to gleam
Build it with such a vision every soul can dream
A bridge for all travelers, for a lifetime to come

Baby I’m a business man
She said when you gonna come my way
Cause I’m waiting for you (4x)
And I want you to
Hold it together (4x)

Baby called and said she seen me just the other day
Trying to tell me, you can’t go away
But I got’s to go, cause I got things to do
People to see, places to be, but I know you’re really needing me
Just keep holler hollering my way
Eventually I’ll make it across the bay, to the Holiday

She’s gonna see me real soon
I’m gonna see her real soon
She’s gonna see me real soon
I’m gonna see her real soon
Baby knows…
Hold it together (4x)

She said it’s hard times
When you ain’t around
Sexual frustration eh
All over this whole town
So put the bridge down
Hold it together (4x)

Hold it together (4x)
Track Name: Nowhere Fast
Across the ocean
Crossing time zones
You can take me
Nowhere fast

Backwards forwards
Even sideways
You can take me
Nowhere fast

Save your pennies
For a ticket
You can take me
Nowhere fast

Don’t you leave me
Where you find me
You can take me
Nowhere fast

Over bridges
By land or by sea
You can take me
Nowhere fast

Through the forest
Or by the lakeside
You can take me
Nowhere fast

We’ll take a racecar
Or a jet plane
You can take me
Nowhere fast

On a rocket
Or a spaceship
You can take me
Nowhere fast
Track Name: High Road
You could take a high speed train
I will take an air balloon
You could take a cross-town bus
And meet me half way

Make pact to make amends
We’ll make the bed we lie in
We’ll make it all up as we go
Take it easy, take it slow

You say you’ve got a happy place
Well where’s that at? Where’s that at?
You say you’ve got a dream to chase
Imagine that, imagine that

Chorus:
You, you take the high road
I’ll take the bridge
You, you take the high road
I’ll take the bridge
I’ll take the bridge

You told me babe it’s not my fault
I take that with a grain of salt
Cause words are easy, talk is cheap
The hardest thing is leaving

I made myself a dream to chase
Fancy that, fancy that
But lost my way while saving face
Imagine that, imagine that

Chorus:
You, you take the high road
I’ll take the bridge
You, you take the high road
I’ll take the bridge
I’ll take the bridge

Outro (layered vocals)

Losing the light take a shot in the dark
Hands in the air we’re missing the mark

You take the high road

It takes a lot of heart
I could take an air balloon
Takes me where I want to go
Meet me on the other side
Track Name: Don't Jump
I’m not leavin’, so you’re not leavin’ too
I’m not leavin’, so you’re not leavin’ too

If you go walkin’ on the bridge tonight
Don’t be confused by the starry lights
Baby you can throw it all away
I found the note you left on the bed
Can’t believe all the things you said
This is not how it’s supposed to be

Don’t
Don’t, don’t, don’t jump
Don’t jump
Don’t jump

I always thought we had the perfect dance
How did I not know about this circumstance
We’ve got way too much to lose right now

Don’t
Don’t, don’t, don’t jump
Don’t jump
Don’t jump
Don’t jump
Don’t jump

I’m not leavin’, so you’re not leavin’ too
I’m not leavin’, so you’re not leavin’ too
I’m not leavin’, so you’re not leavin’ too

Don’t you go walkin’ on the bridge tonight
Track Name: You & Me
Drivin’ around in my old hometown
How the hell did I grow up here and still not know my way around
Feelin’ like a bug stuck in molasses
The second hand ticks but the time never passes
The child that grew up in this house is not me
Blink so tightly ‘til there’s hash marks on the wall
Make me feel so small

Another night in my mother’s house
She likes to pretend that we haven’t changed at all
But we have
Comin’ home to a house full of strangers, faces, unfamiliar figures but we ain’t got a damn thing to say
Talkin’ ‘bout your job, talkin’ ‘bout the weather, talkin’ ‘bout whether not you would trade places with me
Standin’ out on the hot black asphalt
I don’t even know you and it’s nobody’s fault but yours
And mine

Both pretendin’ that we’re withholding judgment
But silently, we’ve agreed to disagree
You and me

Just because I love you doesn’t mean I don’t hate you
Just because I hate you doesn’t mean I don’t love you at all
Try to fix each other like broken machines
Try to force each other to have the same dreams
I think you’re simple, you think I’m an asshole
You think I’m cynical and I think you’re loyal to your father

Just because I love you doesn’t mean I don’t hate you
Just because I hate you doesn’t mean I don’t love you at all
Try to fix each other like broken machines
Try to force each other to have the same dreams
I think you’re simple, you think I’m an asshole
You think I’m cynical and I think you’re loyal to your father

BUT IT’S NOT YOUR FAULT

Oh oh oh, oh oh oh x4
Track Name: Coming Of Age In Hard Times
Shine a little light upon me now
Then turn that light upon yourself
Turn those shadows inside out
And let the tears run on down

Hey hey hey
Coming of age in hard times
There’s a world that you don’t see
Then one you see but don’t believe

Let those fears go let them lie
Kiss that darkness goodbye
Let some trust into your life
Feel your strength rise up inside

Hey hey hey
Coming of age in hard times
There’s a world where you belong
Let your dreams turn you around

Calm your heart and heal your head
Then live your life like a sun that never sets

Shine a little light upon me now
Then turn that light upon yourself

Hey hey hey
Coming of age in hard times
Find your way while you are young
With your dreams to guide you on
Coming of age in hard times
Coming of age in hard times
There’s a world where you belong
Track Name: Bridge On Fire
We took a trip and we danced on the waves uh huh
Ship hit a brick and it burst into flames uh huh

Thought we saw bridge on fire
We swore we saw bridge on fire

Could’ve been a star, could’ve been a place uh huh
Far away smoke from an old freight train uh huh

We thought we saw bridge on fire
We were sure we saw a bridge on fire

Now we sail in this cosmic light
Through ripples of sea
We were sure there’d be no survivors
But luckily we see…

We thought we saw bridge on fire
We were sure we saw a bridge on fire

Bridge on fire, bridge on fire, bridge on fire…
Track Name: Shot Down
Strollin’ down the sidewalk with my girl in hand
See the Holiday sign, we’re home again
Firewood burning, smoke in the air
Feelin’ happy and free and that’s all I really care
Crankin’ up the music with the boy I adore
He’s my whole world and that’s all I need for sure
Hoppin’ in the car, grab the keys and go
Over the bridge headin’ to the show

Love, love, love, love
Whoa oh oh oh oh
Over the bridge for love
Whoa oh oh oh oh
Love, love, love, love
Whoa oh oh oh oh
Over the bridge for love
Whoa oh oh oh oh

Walkin’ down the beach got my toes in the sand
Waves are rollin’ in walkin’ hand in hand
Keep my guard up but I already know
He’s got the way to make me smile and it really shows
Sun falls down at a quarter to nine
Moon comes up as we gaze at the sky
Lookin’ at the stars there’s a lunar eclipse
Bring her in close, tryin’ to steal a kiss

Shot down, down, down
Shot down, down, down
Shot down, down, down
Shot down, down, down

I’ll try again tomorrow

Love, love, love, love
Whoa oh oh oh oh
Over the bridge for love
Whoa oh oh oh oh
Love, love, love, love
Whoa oh oh oh oh
Over the bridge for love
Whoa oh oh oh oh
Track Name: Diamonds On The Bay
Lovers lost in lust, may stumble in the blush
Tangled up in twilight, a fever so right
No sense in pullin’ off the road that got us lost
Cuz the bridge went out after we crossed
Covered head to toe in the afterglow
Makin’ up reasons as doubt creeps in
And you can make believe any way you please
But the truth will bring you to your knees

Star-crossed lovers by daybreak
But I was too blind
Tumblin’ head over heartache
Poisoned kisses and wine
The night the full moon was shining
We sat a while on a bench watchin’ waves
You saw water I saw diamonds on the bay

Now I look at you, a darker shade of blue
Clouds fill up the skies, no stars in your eyes
I don’t wanna hold, a heart that turned so cold
You can’t take the fool out of fool’s gold

Star-crossed lovers by daybreak
But I was too blind
Tumblin’ head over heartache
Poisoned kisses and wine
The night the full moon was shining
We sat a while on a bench watchin’ waves
You saw water I saw diamonds on the bay
Track Name: Heaven
When the lights are low in heaven
In the room behind your eyes
You can wander on forever
Like a lost and weary traveler
Through the darkness deep and white

But if you believe in heaven
It will always be your guide
Lead you from the rocky path now
Lookin’ up and over back now
Cross the bridge into the light
(Bridge into the light)

I’m just tryin’ to get to heaven
Just to be by mama’s side
But if I can’t get into heaven
If I find that I’m denied
(Find that I’m denied)
If I can’t get into heaven
Oh, heaven knows I tried
Track Name: Over and Over
Over and over, I take the tiny lights where they belong
It won’t be long, it won’t be long
‘Til they find out where those tiny lights belong

Little lights are shining out so bring, across the water calling in the night
Come here little lights don’t run and hide, let me take you to the other side

Over and over, I take the tiny lights where they belong
It won’t be long, it won’t be long
‘Til they find out where those tiny lights belong

I can bring you there from over here
But when you’re there you’ll find it’s here

It won’t be long, it won’t be long
‘Til they find out where those tiny lights belong

Marriage of two empires, that’s me
‘Cos all roads lead and rivers run to Rome and to the sea
Open air confessional, that’s me
Good and Evil all dissolved by passing under me

Over and over, I take the tiny lights where they belong
It won’t be long, it won’t be long
‘Til they find out where those tiny lights belong

It won’t be long, it won’t be long
‘Til they find out where those tiny lights belong
