Track Name: Way Back When
Way back when, when I was young
I used to dream I'd be someone
But the times have changed
Nowadays it's plain to see
The world ain't what it used to be
And it all seems strange, so very strange

Way back when, there was a time
When I thought I could make her mine
But I was wrong
Everything I seemed to say
She seemed to take the other way
But I'll get along, life goes on

The sun would shine upon her only
When she walked she made the highest seem so lowly
She'd make a sermon seem unholy
But she's sad and lonely
She's sad and lonely
She's a sad and lonely soul...

Way back when, when I was small
I used to think I knew it all
But what did I know?
Half of what we see is real
The other half is what we feel
And it goes to show, noone told me so

The sun would shine upon her only
When she walked she made the highest seem so lowly
She'd make a sermon seem unholy
But she's sad and lonely
She's sad and lonely
She's a sad and lonely soul...

The sun would shine upon her only
When she walked she made the highest seem so lowly
She'd make a sermon seem unholy
But she's sad and lonely
She's sad and lonely
She's a sad and lonely soul...

Way back when, when I was young
I used to dream I'd be someone
But the times have changed, the world seems strange
Track Name: I Just Wanna See Her Face Again
I'm just looking for the face I know so well
I've thrown all of my coins in the wishing well
I'm looking for a soul that I can tell
Without her it's been hell

I just wanna see her face again
I just wanna see her face again

I'm just going through the things that I would say
I'm praying that the rain won't go her way
I'd give away the world if she would stay
Forever and a day

I just wanna see her face again
I just wanna see her face again

She never calls my name
She never looks my way
I think it's such a shame
I could die when I see her cry

I'm just going to the places she would go
I'm waiting for the train at the railroad
I'm looking for a way that I can show
Just how I need her so

I just wanna see her face again
I just wanna see her face again
I just wanna see her face again
I just wanna see her face again
Track Name: It Ain't Alright
Well the rain is getting heavy and my boots are wearing thin
I ain't got no shelter 'cept the hole that I'm stuck in
If this was a story, I don't know where I'd begin
I think about the future...and I jump out of my skin

Somewhere a lady's crying, she ain't got a thing to eat
She's barely got the money for the shoes upon her feet
The minister's just laughing, he says 'Darling, don't you know you're all the same?'
Can someone please arrest this man? I don't even wanna hear his name

The clouds they keep on rolling by and I can't see the sun
A holy man once told me that it shines on everyone
Well I don't think he's lying, I just think he's got a jaded point of view
I don't like the sound of him telling people what they should and should not do

The world it ain't ok, there's something wrong, it ain't alright
It's taken so much shadow to identify the light
I don't think I can tolerate another second on this barren stage
And it feels so wrong to think this song's about the troubles of this day and age

It ain't alright
It ain't alright
It ain't alright
It ain't alright
Track Name: Caroline
She takes the hairpin from her hair
Her thoughts are flowing everywhere
She tries to calm herself but finds no words to say
She looks into the looking glass
That sees the future and the past
But now reflects her thoughts like words upon a page, words upon a page

Caroline
Waste no dreams on summertime
Reside in the things you feel inside
Caroline
There's a world outside these walls
You cry, but your name will never die

She turns towards the open door
That calls her into nevermore
A crowd of jeering faces baying at the stage
She stumbles slowly up the stairs
Before a world that never cared
She used to watch the sunrise almost every day, almost every day

Caroline
Waste no dreams on summertime
Reside in the things you feel inside
Caroline
There's a world outside these walls
You cry, but your name will never die

She feels her tears begin to run
Her cheeks now shimmer in the sun
But now the clouds descend to wash her fears away
She bows her head down to the floor
She hears the crowd begin to roar
And though her hands are tied behind she tries to pray, she tries to pray

Caroline
Waste no dreams on summertime
Reside in the things you feel inside
Caroline
There's a world outside these walls
You cry, but your name will never die
Track Name: Get Me Out Of Here
I don't wanna stay no more
Please don't leave me on the floor
Won't someone get me out of here?
Too much going through my brain
And it's driving me insane
Won't someone get me out of here?

Get me out of here
Don't let me disappear
Get me out of here
Don't let me down my dear, oh no, oh no

I've been trying to tow the line
But I'm running out of time
Won't someone get me out of here?
Too much rides upon my name
I don't want fortune or fame
Won't someone get me out of here?

Get me out of here
Don't let me disappear
Get me out of here
Don't let me drown my dear, oh no, oh no

It always seems the same
Everyone will jump the gun in the pouring rain
And there's no place to be
I think I'll run away to sea
The world just seems so cold to me

Get me out of here
Don't let me disappear
Get me out of here
Don't let me drown

Get me out of here
Don't let me disappear
Get me out of here
Don't let me drown my dear, oh no
