Track Name: I Was Born Early Monday Morning
Being born... Monday morning...
Chords from “Cosmic Dancer” by T Rex

I was born early Monday morning / With a song already playin’ in my head / Song after song without a warning / By Sunday… I’ll be dead / With a new song playin’ in my head...
I woke up late, had trouble with my laces / Go out to work, and I hurry to the bus / Feels so bad to see these same sad faces / I hear a sad song playin’ just for us / By Sunday… I’ll be dust
Track Name: I Want You To Always Be Mine
First day of school... Monday night...
Chords from “We’re Gonna Be Friends” by The White Stripes

I know I should be excited / I know I should be all right / I know I should be excited / I cannot sleep tonight / But I’m feeling blue / I know I’ll miss you / They say that I’ll be fine / But I want you to always be mine...
I know I should be excited / I know I should be all right / I know I should be excited / But I can’t sleep tonight / Well, hold my head / And tuck me into bed / They say that I’ll be fine / But I want you to always be mine / Yeah I want you to always be mine...
I’m supposed to be excited / My face shows how hard I try / But as I take those first steps / Out the front door I think I’ll die / I’m going out alone / I’ll leave the safety of my home / Say I’ll be home so soon / But I won’t be - the same kid that you knew...
I’ll admit I’ve been feeling blue / And a couple of those colours in between / I’m supposed to be at ease with this / But I’m not really sure what that means / Your baby bird has flown / The nest is just sticks and stones / I’ll remember you / But you won’t be the family that I knew / Yeah I want you to always be mine
Track Name: Her Arms Around Me For Sure
First kiss... Falling in love... Tuesday morning...
Chords from “Her Arms Around Me” by Bag

Let’s stay in bed / Never leave this room / This honeymoon / Should be never-endin’ / I want my arms around her / Her arms around me for sure...
Well I’ll feel better / Even better than this / If you come in closer / And mine touch your lips / I want my arms around her / Her arms around me for sure
(solo)
I want my arms around her / Her arms around me for sure
Track Name: I Wish I Didn't Feel So Free
Getting my heart broken... Tuesday night...
Chords from “Nothing Compares 2 U” by Sinead O’Connor

Tryin’ to live in the moment now / Tryin’ to live for today / Tryin’ to act appropriately / Tryin’ to be sad and grey / Tryin’ not to react to the tune I hear in my head / Tryin’ to act the right way / Tryin’ to live in the moment now / Today is still the saddest day...
I’d never had a girl to care for / Nor had I one to care for me / So for a while I felt on top of the blue world / Smiling down on the shining sea / She held me tight and even tighter I held her / Me for her and her for me / But tonight it all came crashing down / And I wish I didn’t feel so free
Track Name: Roosevelt
Driving on my own... Wednesday morning...
Chords from "Motor Away" by Guided By Voices

On our way to Roosevelt / He knew exactly how I felt / He knew exactly what mistakes I’d make / He knew the left, he knew the right / Would i go left? He knew I might / But there’s a left I really shouldn’t take / I dropped him off on Fuller Ave / The day was grey, the roads were bad / I turned and parked and curved til I was done / I picked him up and took him home / And sped back off all on my own / For once, this time, the paper sure did come / Pedal down, I look around / Make sure no cops around / It’s simply a race against time / It’s me versus him / You better bet on me to win / Now it’s back to the scene of the crime...
On my way to Roosevelt / The rain had cleared / The ice did melt / I took the left I really shouldn’t take / With no one looking over me / I was who I was meant to be / I should’ve stayed in bed not awake
Track Name: Paper Girl
Losing a close friend... Wednesday night...
Chords from "Goodbye Dear Friend" by Deer Tick

I'm not sure / If I remember your face / I'm not even sure if you'd recognise mine / We go back / Way further than most / But the connections is being killed off by the time / The dust still shows your prints on the handlebars of your bicycle / I should know because it's sitting there next to mine / I'm not ok with growing up alone without you now / But I'm getting so much better at pretending I’m fine....
I still hear you / Singing those made up songs / I start to smile and people ask me 'Hey what's wrong?' / But they can't see you / And hey neither can I / You're just a permanent resident at the back of my mind / I've been living in a future that we never dreamed of / I wish that I could call you and tell you; 'baby take your time' / We've got nothing here that I would ever want to write home about / Flying cars are still way off and the dinosaurs are all still dead...
Just A Girl Isn’t / what you were / The world uncurls but it's / still not her / Paper girl floats / in the ether / Flutter in the swirl / I wish you coulda seen her / I wish you coulda seen her / Wish you coulda seen her
Track Name: Your Dance
Graduating from college... Thursday morning...
Chords from "The Future’s So Bright, I Gotta Wear Shades" by Timbuk 3

movin’ up movin’ out movin’ on / doin’ time doin’ right doin’ wrong / it’s time son to hop on off of the fence / i hope you learned enough to come to your own defense / i hope you’re ready to dance, dance to your own damn song / i hope you dance, all night long...
pave your path it’s a brand new world / grab the hand of the nearest girl / it’s too slow at the zoo and they never cared about you / it’s time for you to do anything you want to do / make up a brand new dance, shake swing shimmy and swirl / make up a dance, for the world...
movin’ up movin’ out movin’ on / doin’ fine doin’ right doin’ wrong / it’s hard to be “anything you want to be” / cuz you can’t describe something that you just can’t see / go on and make your dance, make your song / make up your dance, so you’ll belong...
See you dancing not the easiest step / I’m not the kind of man to place bets / But I reckon you are gonna go far from here / See it in you’re your eyes….You’re full of fear / But I’ve got faith in you...You’re gonna dance whether it’s wrong / You know it’s right in your mind so... you’ll always belong / Yeah, I think - you’ll always belong
Track Name: Beehive
Getting my dream job...Thursday night...

It’s a night time song / I’m not going to admit I think I was wrong / It’s not long / The evening dies And I start my morning / How hard I try / I’m trying to fit in With those other guys / They look so strong / Working the day away...
It’s like, The bees stuck in the hive / We work all the day, The sweet stuff gives us life / I’m one of many, I’m a Drone / I work all day, In the hope I’ll die alone...
It’s not wrong / It might not be right, I’ve never really taken the time / To think it out / I’m just a cog In the machine, That I could live without / I’m trying man / I’m wishing every day For a change of pace / I’ve got a plan / To up my roots And leave long gone / without ever looking back...
It’s like, The bees stuck in the hive / I work all day, The sweet stuff gives me life / I’m one of many, I’m a Drone / We’re working all day, Because we all want to die alone…
Yeah it’s waiting for you / This life will murder you / It’s not what you want / But it’s where you’re gonna be…..
Not right, I should be outside / Sleeping underneath, The moon and starlight / Please get out now, Before it’s too late / They’re always watching, So make good on your escape...
On their break / They watch the walls / At the cafe / Down the street / They’re painted just / Like the hive / They might as well / Never leave / They go home / mend their socks / Their mind’s at work / They never leave
Track Name: Do You Take This Man?
Getting married... Friday morning...
Chords from “And I Love Her” by The Beatles

Finally I’m beginning to start to feel my toes / Luckily there’s a priest here by the side, the side of the road / Grab him by the alb and throw him in to the van / I trust he knows the deal blah blah blah do you take this man...
We’ll dance the night away to “And I Love Her” / It’s too late to call back our fathers and our mothers / We’ll take turns exorcising our ex-lovers / And, whatever song is playing I’ll hear “And I Love Her”...
Remember the morning when I said, “Maybe we could marry.” / I remember it well cuz you shouted “Hell yeah, gladly!” / I didn’t mean it as a question, it was more of a thought / Being honest I was thinking of painting over that painting you’d bought...
I don’t regret / How you misunderstood / I think it’ll all work out / for the good...
I’m sorry I left / But I’m back forever / Till death do us part or / Or maybe whenever / We’ll dance the night away to “And I Love Her” / Too late to call back our sisters and our brothers / We’ll take turns exorcising our ex-lovers / Whatever song is playing I’ll hear “And I Love Her”
Track Name: Are We Ready For The Big One?
Buying a house... Friday night...
Chords from "Do It Yourself" by Salako

Are we ready for the big one, I think we are / We did our studies for the piece of mind, and our buck is gonna go far / Who’s gonna find us a sign / I think this place will suit us fine / How little can we offer you, to take your place / This guy who we barely know’s gonna tell us if it’s safe / Who’s gonna lend us a dime / I swear we’ll pay you back in time
I didn’t build it but I own every wall / I could add more things on or I could just sit back and watch it fall
Just seal the deal, man, don’t hesitate / Throw our stuff in the moving van, no suitcase / Who’s gonna unload the van / I’m sure my dad will lend a hand / He loves to do this sort of thing / He’ll get it all done right for free
Track Name: I’ll Snap The Neck Of Anyone Who Does You Wrong
Becoming a parent... Saturday morning...
Chords from "Gracie" by Ben Folds

The truth is I’ve always been afraid / Until I met you until I saw your face / I always said that no meant no / Not hey let’s wait and see where this might go
Then you showed up so mild and so meek / And you had changed me in well under a week / I used to be all peace and love / And now I’ll snap the neck of anyone / of anyone who does you wrong
Track Name: The Sun Can Go Down
Death of a parent... Saturday night...
Chords from “Do You Realize?” by The Flaming Lips

The stories they told / Even as they grew old / Exaggerations I’m sure / About how great things were / Saturday, endless nights / Filled, filled with delights / How mom had proposed / And how he couldn’t say no / To her beautiful face / How they floated through space / On the earth, spinning round / The sun / Must / Go down...
Some things went untold / Even as they grew old / So happy they cried / Everyone else had died / Time went by, oh so fast / But they made the good things last / As she took her last breath / He could then welcome death / He held onto her hand / Just as he always had / With just their kids, gathered around / The sun / Can / Go down...
Track Name: To Go Back
Retiring... Sunday morning...
Chords from “When I’m Sixty-Four” by The Beatles

The ship is sinking and the building’s burning / Right down to the ground / Sunday morning is our time to rest / We hit the church just to hedge our bets / Tell a stranger in a costume my sins / How do I look in black? / How long to live? What would I give / To go back
I got no plans today tomorrow / I spot the nun creeping from the church / After brunch I’d like to nap til noon / I’ll be grumpy if I wake up too soon / No kids, no chores, no cares / Of the time I’m losing track / I’m having a ball. Would I give it all / to go back?
Mixing up our chemicals / I’m lazing right into the end / I take some of yours and you take some of mine / A smorgasbord of we both feel fine / Would I ever want to go back? / I kinda like the way that things are stacked / What would it take to get / me to go back?
Track Name: Just A Waltz, And Then We'll Leave / Sunday Night
Dying... Sunday night...
Chords from “Goodbye Dear Friend” by Deer Tick

I wouldn’t call this the end / But it doesn’t look like a start / We drag these dregs / Until in our hands they fall apart / One more waltz, you know it’s what I need / One more waltz and I promise you we’ll leave / Would you say it’s time to call it quits / The deed is done the king is now in bits / We’ve failed too many times before / Our plans have died –they’ve given up – they’re lying on the floor / One more waltz, you know it’s what I need / One more waltz and I promise you we’ll leave...
One more waltz, I need / Then I promise we will leave / One more waltz is what they’ll see / When they look our way / Way out upon the ocean, / It’s not the time there’s no commotion / Let’s round this up and draw a line / Under this most close and personal crime…

Chords from “Knockin' On Heaven’s Door” by Bob Dylan

Just like Sunday night / She always comes too late / Where is my wife? / She’s about to miss what’s left of the rest of my life / I’ve only Sunday night / She’d better not be late...
