Track Name: So Deep
I know I barely met you
But you stole my heart away
Now I need to be with you
Won't you hear what I have to say

I'm gonna call you beautiful
(Everyone says you're beautiful)
But then I'll tell you something
That I bet you've never heard before

My love is SO DEEP
My love is SO DEEP
Don't think it's skin deep
My love is SO DEEP

I'm not a superficial guy
I can feel it through and through
I never knew I had a type
'Til I found my type was you

The more I watch you dancing, baby
I want you more and more
You're making me feel something
That I never ever felt before

My love is SO DEEP
My love is SO DEEP
Don't think it's skin deep
My love is SO DEEP

Until this very moment I
didn't believe in love at first sight
But I'll admit that I was wrong
'Cause everything about you is right

You got no reason to trust me
But I promise every word is true
You just need a man like me
Who can show you what love can do

I'm not like the other guys
Who want to love you and leave you there
'Cause when they get bored
And they've all gone home
Look around and I'll still be there

My love is SO DEEP
My love is SO DEEP
Don't think it's skin deep
My love is SO DEEP
Track Name: Cartoon World
I'm living in a cartoon world
Full of bright and happy colors and sweet melodies
All the animals are friendly
and they smile when I walk by
And I smile right back at them

You make me see so differently
I don't have to fantasize
The way you make me feel
puts a whole new world
before my eyes
My cartoon world

I'm living in a cartoon world
There's no cloud up in the sky, just a smiling sun
Birds are landing on my shoulder
and they sing a happy tune
And harmonize with me

You make me see so differently
I don't have to fantasize
The way you make me feel
puts a whole new world
before my eyes
My cartoon world

I'm living in a cartoon world
Cars and trees and building talk and they say lovely things
It's a world of joy and happiness
A world made of love
Of the love I have for you
And it's a world made for two
Come join me in my cartoon world

Come join me in my cartoon world
Track Name: Good On Another Day
Tale of two cities
The time is today
Caught up in the motions
Of serious play
Dangerous pity
A wounded left hand
Don't know how to say it
You won't understand

Maybe it's better we can't be together
Cause I'm not ready
You're not willing
Maybe it's better we can't be together
Cause I'm not ready
You're not able

You try to be distant
I try to be wise
Boundless attraction
Cut down to size
We try to ignore it
It won't go away
It's not going to happen
No, at least not today

Maybe it's better we can't be together
Cause I'm not ready
You're not willing
Maybe it's better we can't be together
Cause I'm not ready
You're not able

But at least
We caught a glimpse
Of something that could have been
Good on another day
In some other life
For two other people
Track Name: The Day I Dared To Hope
The day I dared to hope
I thought I couldn't lose
I thought a great big jackpot sure would chase away my blues
My confidence was high
I had to go all in
I put the money on the table, watched that wheel spin
I had a lucky feeling, but I guess my luck was bad
The house took me for everything I had
The day I dared to hope

The day I dared to dream
I dreamt that I could fly
Built myself a pair of wings
And reached up to the sky
I thought I'd be a bird
I thought I'd be a plane
I thought I'd be a Superman
And get my Lois Lane
As soon as I got in the air
So high above the ground
All my hopes and dreams came crashing down
The day I dared to hope

Now hope makes the impossible
Seem possible at first
Makes you think at least it's worth a try
But trying leads to failure
Oh my god that failure hurts
If you never hope
You never have to cry

The day I dared to hope
I pinned my hopes on you
Nothing else could bring me down
Our love would see us through
I hoped you'd be my queen
And I would be your king
I hoped together we could conquer anything
But when you told me I would never be the special one
That's when I knew my hoping days were done
The day I dared to hope
Track Name: Can We Still Be Friends
So you said no, as expected
All I can do now is move on
I might need some time to get over you
But please don't forget me while I'm gone

Can we still be friends?
When I'm done swimming in my sorrow
Will you still talk to me tomorrow?
Can we still be friends?

Although I can't pretend that my heart isn't shattered
It would have hurt worse if you lied about what mattered
And I still wave the flag of love
Albeit tattered and torn
and broken

Maybe you don't think I can do it
Cause I already asked for more
But if I can't have you closer
Then the only thing that I have left to lose
Is what we had before

Can we still be friends?
I don't expect you to adore me
But will you have a kind word for me
Can we still be friends?

I would have loved to be your lover 'cause I love you
And though I can't I still am always thinking of you
If I can't be the one,
I'd rather still be someone to you
Than no one

I want whatever makes you happy
If that means go away... I will
I won't be hateful or dramatic
Cause even if we're done, I love you still

Can we still be friends?
Will you still try to care about me
Or did you decide to do without me?
Can we still be friends?
Though my heart's in pieces all around me
I'd rather go back to where you found me
Than bring it to an end
Track Name: Gonna Make You Feel
I can't sleep at night
Now I'm gonna keep you up all night

When I look in your eyes
You set me on fire
Now I'm gonna give you fever
Get you burning up, baby

Light a candle
Play some music
Gonna make you lose all sense of time
When I kiss you
When I hold you
Nothing in this world but your body and mine

I'm gonna make you feel
Like you make me feel
I'm gonna make you feel
Like you make me feel

Now you're nervous
And you're trembling
You don't know where I'm gonna take you next
But you know
It's gonna be higher

When I'm away from you
Feel so empty inside
Nah... I won't make you feel empty

You can feel it
In your body
All that tension building up inside
Close the windows
Hug your pillows
Gonna give you happiness that make you
Scream and cry

I'm gonna make you feel
Like you make me feel
I'm gonna make you feel
Like you make me feel

I can't sleep at night
Still I wake up happy
Track Name: Crossing The Distance
You know I love you
I know how you feel
But could it go further
Could it be real
You say there's no reason
For thinking this way
Because of the distance
You never would say
"Let's get together and give it a try
If we don't find love, at least we'll know why."

There's a distance we must cross
(A distance we must cross)
And we'll never know what's lost
(and we'll wonder all our lives)
And we have to cross it soon before our love can slip away

If I have a chance with you
If I have a prayer
Then let me be with you
Just let me be there
I'm crossing the distance
Between you and me
With no expectations
Except that we'll see

Whether together we still want to try
If we don't find love, at least we'll know why

There's a distance we must cross
(A distance we must cross)
And we'll never know what's lost
(and we'll wonder all our lives)
And we have to cross it soon before our love can slip away

Track Name: I Am Not What I Want For You
What I want for you is
Joy, smiles, and laughter
Living in luxury
Happy ever after

And all I can promise you is
Tears and sadness
Giving in to weakness
Emptiness and madness

I am not what I want for you
No, I am not what I want for you

What I want for you is
Safety and security
Living without worry
Strength and stability

And all I can offer you is
Doubt and uncertainty
Giving in to misery
Constant ambiguity

And love
But love is not enough

I am not what I want for you
No, I am not what I want for you

So go
And live a happy life
Find the joy I cannot give you
And everything I want for you
So go
Please go
I'm letting go

I am not what I want for you
