Track Name: Back to Seoul
BACK TO SEOUL

I really wanna go somewhere today 
I really think I need a change of pace
So I'm going back to Seoul, Korea 
One more time and I really wanna go 
I really wanna go

I really wanna go somewhere today
I cannot wait to show you around this place
So I'm taking you to Seoul, Korea 
One more time and I really wanna go there
I really wanna go there

I think I want to stay a while and see
I'm thinking you should hang around with me
so I'm taking you to Seoul, Korea
One last time and I really wanna go there
I really wanna go...

There's a part of me
In my heart I know
In my blood/in my bones… a certain tone
It belongs in part in Seoul

I really wanna take you there
I really wanna take you there
Track Name: Hanging On A Thread
HANGING ON A THREAD

I think I can do without
I think I can make it on my own, I know
I had the time to contemplate
I think I can do it all alone, I know

That life’s not easy but I can take it
Though I’m hanging on a thread

I’m just trying to make a name
Trying to make some sense out of it all, alone
Trying to this or that or whatever comes to mind to make it work, alone

Life’s not easy still I can take it
Though I’m hanging on a thread

Life’s not easy still I can take it
No, life’s not easy but I’ll make it
No, life’s not easy still I can take it

Just get out of my way
Track Name: Ready Or Not
READY OR NOT

Ready or not, I'm gonna find you
I'm not gonna stop, I'm on my way
All I want to do is to get a closer view
If it's good enough for most, it should be good enough
I hope it's not a lot to ask
All in time, hey not so fast…

Ready or not, I’ve got to find you
I’ll give it a shot, hell why not
All I want to do is get up close to you
If it’s good enough for most, then it’s good enough
I hope it’s not a lot to ask
All in time, but not so fast…

It seems unreal
Everybody knows just how you feel
It comes and goes
Help me understand how to let go

All I want to do is to get up close to you
If it's good enough for most, than it's good enough
I hope it's not a lot to ask
I hope it’s not really a lot to ask
Track Name: This Might Be Love
THIS MIGHT BE LOVE

This might be love
This might be love but I’ve lived so long without it
Love, this might be love but I’m never sure about it

Till much too late
I don’t get it
It seems simple enough
But i always get stuck at the part where you walk out

Could this be love
Could this be it, don’t know too much about this stuff, a perfect fit
But I’m always scared to go for it

Till much too late
I don’t get it
It seems simple enough
But i always get stuck at the part where you walk out
With so many problems, could we really want them?
How could we just fall out?

If this could be love, I wanna be more than friends
If this could be love, I don’t know how it ends
If this could be love, I’m always too many steps behind

Your love

And as for us, I don’t get it
It seems simple enough
But i always get stuck at the part where you walk out
With so many problems, could we really solve them?
How could we just fall out?
Could this be love?

I hope I can with you
Maybe its not but maybe its true
Our love…
Track Name: On The Count Of Three
ON THE COUNT OF THREE

They met on the playground everyday there after school
Where he asked her if she liked him just as much one afternoon
He waited for an answer then she punched him in the nose
They were eight and now they're 23, who knew they'd fall in love

He don't mind if she first goes cuz he'd follow right behind
She don't mind if he first goes cuz it wouldn't change her mind
They take each other's hands to find it's hard to step over the line
So for the sake of going together they both go on the count of three

Brennan he loves Krista and you know she does the same
What they don't know how to say in words, they say it in another way
They both want to take the next step, so why not make the most
Of what they got and what is gonna be, well nobody really knows

He don't mind if she first goes cuz he'd follow right behind
She don't mind if he first goes cuz it wouldn't change her mind
She fell in love, he understands that she don't want no other man...
So for the sake of going together they both go on the the count of three

I wish i could love somebody to share my every moment
Singing just the same and wishing that day would come soon
But till that day I'm gonna dream of how it just might be
When I bump into you on that sunny day, and greet you with a smile

He won't mind if she first goes cuz I'd follow right behind
She won't won't mind if he first goes cuz it would change your mind
We'll take each other's hands to find it's hard to step over the lines
So for the sake of going together we'll both go on the count of three
Track Name: I Need to be Alone
I NEED TO BE ALONE

Some people say the lamest possible things
It’s a common mistake that we all make, and all out of turn
So I don’t mind it sometimes

But I need to be alone
I need to be alone sometimes
I need to be alone, like tonight
See you on the other side

You were on fire, fed up and sick of the world
I fanned the flame when I told you what you already heard
So I don’t mind it sometimes
No I don't mind it sometimes
But sometimes..

I need to be alone
I need to be alone sometimes
I need to be alone, like tonight
See you on the other side

Don’t forget to read your bibles
No regrets when all is said and done
Take your time, take your time

I need to be alone
I need to be alone sometimes
I need to be alone, like tonight
See you on the other side
Track Name: Pullout Couch
PULLOUT COUCH

It's good to hear your voice over the phone
You coming into town you say? When and how long?

I still remember the day you took off and when you boarded the plane
You asked me if I thought you were crazy

Well, you're welcome to stay at the house you know
You take the bed I insist, I'll be fine with the pull out couch
I prefer it anyway

I won't let anyone know
How you lost the part on that TV show
We all know you wanted to go, straight to top

We'll take you on back to the autumn day parades
Remember those days and the shit we used to say
When you were you

If nothing you know you can count on - be unafraid
You know you can always fall back on - if you ever lost your way
And now as long as you know, why don't you hurry home?

I won't let anyone know
How you lost the part on that TV show
We all know you wanted to go, straight to top
What won't last for long - I'm just so glad that you're home
I'm just so glad that you're home for now
Track Name: Shoot the Shit
SHOOT THE SHIT

Make no mistake, I'm not leaving here without you
Pull back the shades and get your ass up
And the key oh in the mighty sun it brings life to the bones
You better leave your dusty darkness you call a home

You can find me in the light, my dear friend
I will help you win the fight against your sins

And I want to know when your life will start again
and I want to go grab a whiskey and shoot the shit

When the tables turn, Goddamn your persistence
For what it's worth, thanks in advance
You always knew what to say
I hope I do the same for you in times like these
So I'm calling you out like you've always done for me

You can find me in the light, my dear friend
I will help you win the fight against your sins

And I want to know when your life will start again
and I want to know when you'll find yourself in line

You were always such an ass around the people you most loved
And fast, the time it took for all of us to know we had enough
But now you're gone
Now you're gone

And I want to know
When your life will start again
And I want to know when you're fine
And I want to go grab a whiskey and shoot the shit
With friends like yourself and the rest of them
Track Name: Be Mine, Baby
BE MINE, BABY

There's something in the way she hesitates
Sing it like a lover’s serenade
I never been a fan of love songs but sometimes you gotta write one

Be mine, baby

Suddenly I feel I’ll be okay
One less thing to worry about now
It’s feeling like the sun is coming out when she is around

Be my baby, be mine forever and be mine for good
Lovely lady be mine for life, well alright alright
Be my baby, be mine for life

She got me on the ropes most of the time
I think I kinda like it, big surprise
I told you I was bored from all the talk
You said to take a walk

Be my baby, be mine forever and be mine for good
Lovely lady be mine for life, well alright alright
Be my baby, be mine for life

And when she walks
It looks like she’s dancing
I look in her eyes
I make out the answers to life
I think we’ll make it out alive

Be mine, baby
