Track Name: Brand New
My alarm clock rings,
And the birdie sings,
I roll out of bed
And do the same old morning things.

Get into the car,
Can’t believe I’ve made it quite this far,
I’m not gonna shoot an ace, but I can hope to
Come in under par.

I’m just getting through the day
So I can get to the night,
When I’m with you, got nothing to do,
That’s when I feel all right,

My problems seem to slip away,
And somehow it’s okay
When I crawl into bed with you
I know I’ll wake up brand new.

Yea, I’m a mess,
Could be worse, I guess
At least I’m coming home
Please baby, strip me of this stress.

I drink a glass of wine,
While you tell me I’ll be fine.
Eventually things will change
But I’d appreciate a sign.

CHORUS

You’re next to me, you keep me sane,
You’re the reason I’m still on this train
No telling what tomorrow brings
(Like dreams come true or diamond rings)
When I wake up to the song that the birdie sings:

CHORUS
Track Name: Get Out of My Head
Once in a while I see your face
And I try, but I can’t look away.
Once in a while I hear your voice
Beckoning me to stay
Get out, get out,
Get out of my head.

Once in a while I feel your touch
I’m on fire, all over again.
Once in a while I taste your kiss
All I want, is for it to end
Get out, get out,
Get out of my head.

Get out of my head,
Is this a sickness?
Get out of my head,
Is this a curse?
Get out of my head,
You’ve made your point
Don’t make it worse,
The damage is done,
Your fatal poison has been fed,
Get out of my head.

Once in a while I say your name
And it’s then I remember why
I can’t go a day where the thought of you
Does anything but make me cry.
Get out, get out,
Get out of my head.

CHORUS

I’m not gonna take the blame for your twisted game,
Oh no.
And you’re not gonna tear me down this time around,

CHORUS

Once in a while I see your face
And I try, but I can’t look away.
Track Name: Second Chance Dance
You and me, under a tree.
Younger versions of the people we grew up to be.
One innocent kiss sparks a short-lived romance.
As the stage was set for life’s second chance dance.

One step forward, three steps to the right.
Say hello, stay a while, then kiss me goodnight.
Three steps backwards, switch partners, turn around,
Come back to me, and hold my hand, safe and sound.

You walk by, no second thought.
Moments between us, we long ago forgot.
I flew south, while you drove north.
We’d meet in the middle, that far away June fourth.

Three years later, a lifetime it seems.
The girl you once knew was now the woman of your dreams.
My heart told me one thing, but my head disagreed,
For once I tuned it out, and my feelings took the lead

You and me, under a tree.
Planning our life together, happy just to be.
Who knew ten years ago we’d make our own romance
All the time rehearsing life’s second chance dance.
Track Name: Half-Full Girl
Yellow sunshine, clear blue skies.
After all the rain, what a nice surprise.
Open blinds and windows up,
Pour out the water in my half-empty cup.

‘Cause I’m more of a half-full girl, you see,
Don’t know why I let those showers get to me,
But now I’m trading in my umbrella for a pair of shades
I’m gonna need ‘em ‘cause the future’s bringing brighter days

I’m ready for this life, and what it’s got in store for me.
Don’t want to fall asleep and miss one single thing.
I’m ready for the feeling that my time has come,
But for now, all I’m gonna do is sing.

Drink my coffee, feel that high.
Watch the storm clouds keep on rolling by.
Count my blessings one by one,
And thank the Lord for all that He has done.

Like making me this half-full girl you see,
Who won’t let the small things in life get to me.
‘Cause I’ve traded in my umbrella for a pair of shades
I’m gonna need ‘em ‘cause the future’s bringing brighter days

I’m ready for this life, and what it’s got in store for me.
Don’t want to fall asleep and miss one single thing.
I’m ready for the feeling that my time has come,
But for now, all I’m gonna do is sing.

I’m gonna sing for my supper,
Gonna sing for my rent.
Gonna sing to have the life for which I know that I was meant.
I’m gonna sing until I’ve run out
Of the words and melodies
Because this life’s the only one I’ve got, and this day is mine to seize

I’ll always be a half-full girl, you see,
I’ll never let those showers get to me,
‘Cause I’ve traded in my umbrella for a pair of shades
And I need ‘em each and every single day

I’m ready for this life, and what it’s got in store for me.
Don’t want to fall asleep and miss one single thing.
I’m ready for the feeling that my time has come,
But for now, all I’m gonna do is sing.
But for now, all I’m gonna do is sing.
Track Name: What You Have To Do
All of her friends went to the lake,
But she stayed behind.
Her daddy had made up her mind.
"You've got a paper to write, by the end of the night,"
And then he said what he always said,

Do what you have to do when you have to do it,
So that one day you can do
What you want to do, when you want to
Sometimes your time just isn't your own,
But don't worry, you're not alone,
Do what you have to do 'cause right now,
It's not up to you.

Out on her own, a couple years passed by.
All alone, she started to cry.
She made a call home, her daddy picked up the phone.
And when he heard her voice
He said what he always said,

CHORUS

It's hard to play by someone else's rules,
When you don't agree.
And when you're in it, sometimes you can't see.
But when you've made it to the other side,
And learned along the way,
You'll be surprised to hear yourself say:

CHORUS

All of her friends went to the lake,
Spent the day on her boat,
Bought with the money she made
From the songs she wrote.
When people asked her how she got there,
She just had to share.
Her daddy would have been so proud of what she said:

I did what I had to do when I had to do it,
So that one day I could do
What I wanted to when I wanted to,
And though your time might not be your own
Don't worry, you're not alone.
Do what you have to do so that someday,
It's up to you.
Track Name: Sweet Sweet Summer
Na na na, na na na na, na na
Na na na, na na na na, na
Na na na, na na na na, na na
Na na, na na na, na
Na na, na na na, na

We walked hand in hand,
We wrote our names in the sand.
The tide was low,
So where did they go?

Daylight faded with the blink of an eye
Tell me why we had to say goodbye
Tell me why we had to say goodbye, to the

Lazy mornings sleeping in,
The heat rising off your skin,
Waiting for the night to begin.

Looking up into the sky,
Feeling like we could fly,
So happy thought I might cry,
Sweet sweet Summer, goodbye.

Laying in the sun,
It was like we were one,
You and me,
Hoped that we always would be.

But life moves fast, and we gave it a try
Tell me why we had to say goodbye
Tell me why we had to say goodbye, to the

Lazy mornings sleeping in,
The heat rising off your skin,
Waiting for the night to begin.

Looking up into the sky,
Feeling like we could fly,
So happy thought I might cry,
Sweet sweet Summer, goodbye.

Turn around and fall has gone,
Winter moves along,
Spring flowers start to grow,
And then it’s time to say hello, to the

Lazy mornings sleeping in,
The heat rising off your skin,
Waiting for the night to begin.

Looking up into the sky,
Feeling like we could fly,
And both of us wondering why
Why we ever said goodbye.
Track Name: By Your Side
I still remember that night,
When you reached out your hand
You said come with me.
I hesitated and you reached out even farther
You said come with me.
You told me don’t worry, ‘cause I’ll be
By your side,
By your side.


I could have gone anywhere,
Done anything that I wanted
But I’m here with you.
I could have left anytime, escaped with no warning
But I’m here with you.
And that’s where I wanna be:
By your side,
By your side.

Because it doesn’t feel the same way without you,
Well, I’m guessing, ‘cause I haven’t tried.
And my hands would get cold if you took yours away,
So don’t.
Promise you’ll stay,
By my side.

You had a smile on your face
When you reached for my hand
And said stay with me.
You had a ring, got down on one knee
And said stay with me.
Was there ever a doubt I would be
By your side,
By your side.

CHORUS

By your side is where I’ll be
Where there’s you, there’s always me.
By your side.

CHORUS
Track Name: All We've Got
The world looks bigger from the outside in
Like a game that you already know you just can’t win,
You and me against the world, uneven teams,
At least, that is the way it always seems.

We’re all we’ve got
You’re not an island, nor am I, and if you thought
You’d go it alone, with heart of stone
You should have known, mmm-mm-mm.
I’m calling this shot,
‘Cause we are all we have got.

We never sat at tables set for ten,
Telling tales that went “Do you remember when?”
Quiet conversations over dinner for two,
Filled with secrets only meant for me and you.

I need you, need, you
You need me, need me,
Ooh, because we’re all we’ve got.
Track Name: Whiteout
There isn’t anywhere, I have to go.
So let’s stay home, and watch the snow,
Fallin’, like I fell in love with you.

There isn’t anyplace, I have to be.
And you, you’re sitting next to me,
Smilin’, as our eyes enjoy the view.

White out, so bright out,
And all that I can see,
Is the snow, watchin’ it blow,
Knowing you’re in love with me.
I’m warm and cozy in this sweater,
But your arms are even better.
In this white out, let’s hide out,
Just stay.

I don’t have no plans tonight,
The air is cold, the lights are bright,
Twinklin’, through the snow that’s coming down.

I don’t have no friends to see,
‘Cause you’re right here, that’s all I need,
Chillin’, like the white stuff on the ground.

CHORUS (2x)
Track Name: I'm Yours (Cover)
Well you done done me and you bet I felt it
I tried to be chill but you're so hot that I melted
I fell right through the cracks
And now I'm trying to get back
Before the cool done run out
I'll be giving it my bestest
Nothing's going to stop me but divine intervention
I reckon it's again my turn to win some or learn some

I won't hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait, I'm yours

Well open up your mind and see like me
Open up your plans and damn you're free
Look into your heart and you'll find love love love
Listen to the music of the moment
People dance and sing
A 'la one big family
It's your God-forsaken right to be love love love
Love loved

So I won't hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait I'm sure
There's no need to complicate
Our time is short
This is our fate, I'm yours

I've been spending way too long
Checking my tongue in the mirror
And bending over backwards just to try to see it clearer
But my breath fogged up the glass
And so I drew a new face and laughed
I guess what I'm saying is there ain't no better reason
To rid yourself of vanity and just go with the seasons
It's what we aim to do
Our name is our virtue

I won't hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait I'm sure
There's no need to complicate
Our time is short
This is our fate, I'm yours

Well no no, well open up your mind and see like me
Open up your plans and damn you're free
Look into your heart and you'll find love love love love
Listen to the music of the moment
Come and dance with me
A 'la one big family
It's your God-forsaken right to be love love love
Love, loved

I won't hesitate no more
Oh no more no more no more
It's your God-forsaken right to be loved, I'm sure
There's no need to complicate
Our time is short
This is our fate, I'm yours

No I won't hesitate no more, no more
This cannot wait I'm sure
There's no need to complicate
Our time is short
This is our fate, I'm yours, I'm yours
Track Name: The Glow
There’s a light, it’s shining bright.
No matter how dark the night should get
It makes everything alright.
And I feel it every day.
I don’t think you need another clue,
That light is you.

Oooh, I want to celebrate you,
And tell you just how great you are.
Why you’re a star.
Ooh, I want to celebrate you,
‘Cause I appreciate you, oh.
I hope you already know,
So just bask in the glow.

Ask anyone, they’ll say the same.
They feel the warmth at just the mention of your name.
Look around, at every face.
Each one reflecting your loving light
And your never-ending grace.

Three hundred sixty-five,
Of every year I’ve been alive,
You’ve been my tireless tower of strength.
You held my hand along the way,
You made me who I am today,
For me you went to every length.

You are loved, beyond compare.
And I’m happy just to know
That when I need you you’re right there.
So make a wish, and blow the candles out,
But your light will always shine beyond
A shadow of a doubt.
