Album Lyrics

Window Seat

Hey, mister in the clean white shirt
Can you help me with my bags
They're the ones with the tear-stained leather tags

I know I'm way too early but I'd like to know
Is my fight gonna be on time?
Looks like my tears have all been cried

I'd like to get myself a window seat
They're saying clear blue skies ahead
I've got a one-way ticket to a brand new life
Gonna get back on my feet again

Was really hoping for a window seat
Up there so high
It's not so hard to see the reason why

I tell ya, you don't want to know
There's so much that I could say
'Bout how it feels when your love gets thrown away

I don't want your pity, just a friendly smile
It means more than you could know
Just one more thing before I go

Yes, Love

Yes, love
You can have your way with me
Work my heart like poetry

Yes, love
They might think I'm just a fool
But there's no way I'm saying no to you

Just look how she looks at me
I hate to fall so easily
But I'm more than willing for one more try
I sure hope I can trust you this time

Yes, love
Her every kiss is such a thrill
Go ahead go in for the kill

Yes, love
No use coming up for air
I'm sinking fast but ask me if I care

Just look how she touches me
I thought that you were through with me
But I'm more than happy to face my fears
Funny how they all disappear

Yes, love
Yes, love

Just look how she touches me
And to think that you were through with me
But I'm more than happy to face my fears
Funny how they've all disappeared

Yes, love
I wish I had you figured out
Teach me what you're all about

Yes, love
Nothing's standing in your way
I need her and I'm here to say
Yes, love

All It Takes

If all it takes
Is just a baby step
Could it be that child in me is still alive?
Alive to dream
A dream I'd dare to chase
Something's telling me it's true
That's all it takes

I've watched them grow
And now they're watching me
So full of grins not "should-have-been's"and "should-have-tried's"
A child's gaze 
Is not a gift to waste
When it's telling you to try
With all it takes

Those darn regrets I can do without
My fearful heart longs to fly
Sure as the sun that sets there's gonna be no doubt
I'm livin', forgiven

As every dawn
Unwraps another day
I'll dive right in come sink or swim, at least I've tried
And I'll look back so much to celebrate
'Cause I've given it my all
That's all it takes

Those darn regrets I can do without
My fearful heart longs to fly
Sure as the sun that sets there's gonna be no doubt
I'm livin', forgiven

And as the dawn
Unwraps another day
I'll dive right in come sink or swim, at least I've tried
And I'll look back so much to celebrate
As sure as summer leads to fall
I'll know I've given it my all
That's all it takes

Wake-Up!

[This song is an instrumental]

Cha, dude!

All Is Lost

These are the arms that never reach out
 That need you to stay
These are the lips that never speak out
With so much to say

I'm hopelessly out of touch
And loving it way too much

All is lost  
But I don't mind  
The love we share's so rare to find
I'll count the cost
Can't help myself
You stole my heart like no one else
And all is lost
 
Here is the man that never gives in
So taken with you
Here is the man that can't even begin
To deny what you do

Defenses are crashing down
And nothing can stop them now

I Lose It

Never saw my daddy cry
Or ever get emotional
He said boy you've got to hold it in

So I've always been the quiet type
But the way I've been feeling lately
Since you stormed into my life
You turned things upside down

I lose it
Every time I hear your name
Your love's just driving me insane
But I don't mind

I lose it
And I can't hide it anymore
I've never loved like this before
And I lose it

So wrap me in your velvet arms
Kill me with your baby blues
Send your sizzle up and down my spine

Hope you're as certain as you say you are
That you love me and there's no other
Feels like a circus in my heart
I'll always be your clown

CHORUS

One kiss and I'm a mess
I can hardly wait to see you in a wedding dress
Girl, that just blows my mind

Preview & Buy

Let's Take The Stairs

Just feel that San Francisco breeze
Feel it blowing only for you and me
As it slips right through that crack I left in our hotel window

I love your smiling, sleepy eyes
As the fog unfolds us another California sunrise
No kids, no dog, and nowhere to be
Two days and nights just you and me

Let's take the stairs
Hearts clanging like two cable cars
Forget your hair
I'll race you to the breakfast bar

Let's take the stairs
Maybe jump into the rental car
Crank up Tony Bennett
All the way down to the wharf

I've got that North Beach in my blood
Maybe we'll find us a table in that corner cafe that I've been talking up
Some red wine, a red rose on a table for two
So slip on your shades and your walking shoes

Color My Sky

Was getting kind of tired of feeling blue
Was there another color I could choose
One to paint my world with shades of everlasting love

With every little lie that rained on me
The smallest ray of hope was hard to see
But there you were, a rainbow from above

So I close my eyes and thank my lucky stars  
For all you do and everything you are

You color my sky
Larger than life
You paint for me all love can be
So vibrant and alive

You color my sky
I never knew my heart could fly
You draw for me eternity
You color my sky

You hold me like a precious work of art
Created with a seal upon my heart
With the passion of Picasso in your touch  

'Cause when my world is full of cloudy grays
You gently come and brush them all away

CHORUS

Horizons open wide
A million colors blow my mind
A splash of every dream coming true

Little World

Feel like a french fry at the bottom of the bag
The kind that might get thrown away
Easy with my heart, girl
How long am I supposed to wait

Let me in your little world
Make my biggest dream come true
Let me in your little world today
Today, hey, hey, today

You put a smile on me that's wider than the sea
I guess you know you rock my boat
Let's super-size it
Can't wait to see where we can go

CHORUS

Easy with my heart, girl
How long am I supposed to wait

And We're Dancing

I miss your heart and mine
Keeping perfect time
Now I stand here lost in this song you left behind
A dream is all I have to keep the music playing
Where I hold you once again
And we're dancing

Tell this dancer's heart
As it falls apart
How we can say goodnight before the evening ever starts
How can you be sure the melody is fading?
I hear it time and time again
And we're dancing

Once more around the room
Please say you'll be there too
I see dancers everywhere
How can I help but see us there
Whispering the secrets only dancer ever share  

You're a haunting song
That I let linger on
And with every note my heart can't help but sing along
I'm holding on to promises you never made me
But I can hear them in my dreams
And we're dancing

Christmas In Your Eyes

You must have been a beautiful baby
Asking when will Santa arrive
Sleeping with the cookies in waiting
Where did the years go to

But that youngster's face
Time can't erase

Christmas in your eyes
Bringing out the little child
Forever may it shine
So playful and so young at heart
There's no sweeter sight
Than Christmas in your eyes

That silly little look that you're giving
Slippers on and you just can't wait
'Cause down the hall the morning's a vision
Of wish book dreams and memories

Love's waiting there
All wrapped with care

CHORUS

Out comes the little boy in me
That wants to race you to the tree
Must be some kind of magic in your smile
