Track Name: Imaginary Jeri
When the middle of the night comes
and the good kids are all in bed
Imaginary Jeri turns
the lights all on instead
I always have an eye out
just in case she’s around
then I tap on her window pane
and hope she hears the sound
Even when she hears me
there’s no guarantee
Imaginary Jeri might
not be up for me
When I see her light on
I should take my own advice
I should keep on keeping on
Cuz she’s not all that nice

135 bpm, capo 2
Dm Am, Em C, C Em, G C C
Track Name: A Steady Job
I’m not around enough
to know about all this stuff
but I’m sure your daddy is
all you really need
Holding down a steady job
is hard enough when you believe in God
just imagine those who don’t
it’s so hard to succeed
I see in your eyes
A different glow of light
You’re not looking at me
And that’s not alright…
I’m not around enough
to be in charge of all this stuff
to hold a steady job
is not the same
as to succeed

140 bpm, capo 2

Track Name: Specks of Gold
I’ve seen some awful things
I’ve seen some things that I’d like to forget
I’m glad we met
Sometimes we need to dig through shit I guess
to find the specks of gold
So, now I know.
Hold me, hold on to me
Don’t leave me, don’t send me back to those awful things
More and more and more and more and more and more
I’m starting to get bored
Are you getting bored?
I’ve seen and seen the same old things
I wonder if you’d do some awful things
Just for me
Hold me, hold on to me
Don’t leave me, don’t send me back to those awful things

Track Name: Awake Another Hour
You were begging me to stay awake
another hour is all that this will take
then you’d be on your way til tomorrow
But baby I wake up with the sun
I got lots of stuff I’ve got to get done
I need what little sleep I can get
You convinced me to stay awake
another hour is all that we could take
then we were on our way til tomorrow
(break)
When I beg you to stay awake
another hour is all that this will take
you see the tides have turned
and now I want you

Track Name: Try Not To Scream
I snuck up behind you
I wanted to see how you’d react to me
I don’t think you noticed
You barely even looked up to see
One way or another
your attention will belong to me
Because I’m about to do what it takes
to make you scream
Try not to scream
Try not to scream
Try not to do anything
Try not to scream
I snuck up behind you
I wanted to see how you’d react to
me. One way or another
I’ll do what it takes to make you
scream
Try not to scream
Try not to scream
Try not to do anything
Try not to scream

Track Name: A Stupid Man
I guess that I chose to believe
The compliments that were clearly meant to deceive
I really desperately
Needed to believe that she meant those things
And I’m not a stupid man
Well maybe yeah I am
Never been a stupid man
Well maybe now for her I guess I am
She says she’ll wear a hand me down
wedding gown
I’m not sure what that implies
But she says it with that sparkle in her eyes
And I’m not a stupid man
But maybe maybe I am
I was never a stupid man
But maybe now for her I guess I am
Maybe now for her I guess I am
I guess I am
I guess I am, I guess I am
I guess I am, I guess I am
Maybe now for her I guess I am

125 bpm, capo 2

Track Name: Gone for Good or Center Stage
I’m not really sure what we’re heading for
Will we meet again beyond today
What can I show you to make you stay
What can I say to make you go away
This can go either way
gone for good or center stage
What can I show you to make you want to stay
What can I say to make you go away
This can go either way
gone for good
or center stage
or center stage
or center stage
or center stage

Track Name: There’s Something To Be Said About A Mystery
Will I ever really know the real you?
Are you ever gonna let me in?
I’m not talkin’ ‘bout your deep dark secrets
the kind I know you revel in
And I don’t mean your fears, your dreams
though I hope to know those someday too
Just tell me more of the ordinary
things that make you you
There’s something to be said about a mystery
There’s something to be said about a mystery
There’s something to be said
about a mystery
But, baby, share just a little
Share a little history
Tell me just a little about you
so I’m not left to guess
then I can say kind words about your thoughts
instead of simply how you’re dressed
There’s something to be said about a mystery
There’s something to be said about a mystery
There’s something to be said
about a mystery
But, baby, share just a little
Share a little history
(solo)
Share something I can’t easily
see or hear or touch
something deep inside you
that isn’t seen so much
There’s something to be said about a mystery
There’s something to be said about a mystery
There’s something to be said
about a mystery
But, baby, share just a little
Share a little history

Track Name: Don't Mind If You Spend The Night
I saw what I liked, I liked what I saw
don’t mind if you spend the night
I heard what you said, I liked what I heard
from me you won’t get a fight
I turn to the truth, when I run out of things
to say to you at night
confused I confess, I love how you’re dressed
everything’s just right
you and me can do almost anything
you and me can do what we like
I said what I meant, I meant what I said
when I asked you to say goodnight
I fumble for words, then stumble to bed
forgetting to be polite
you and me can do almost anything
you and me can do what we like
I saw what I liked, I liked what I saw
don’t mind if you spend the night

Track Name: Crawl From Your Coma
All I can see is the whites of your eyes
the lines on your face are beneath the disguise
Smile and wave so I see that you’re real
tell me to speak so you hear how I feel
Barely alive, barely awake
Crawl from your coma for God’s sake
Up on the roof at a quarter to five
barely awake barely alive
All I can see is the rest of our lives
I can’t blame you for hiding your eyes
Barely alive, barely awake
Crawl from your coma for God’s sake
Barely alive, barely awake
Crawl from your coma for God’s sake

150 bpm, 3/4

Track Name: Glow?
Seeing you there, right where I left you
makes me feel alright
I know you’re alone, alone by the glow
and it makes me feel alright
most of the time
most of the time it makes me feel all right
most of the time
most of the time it makes me feel all right
but some of the time, I feel really bad
that it makes me feel alright
seeing you there, alone by the glow
doesn’t feel so right
most of the time
most of the time it makes me feel all right
most of the time I feel all right
but not tonight

130 bpm, capo 3

Track Name: So Pleased To Meet You
You look like the daughter of Jesus Christ
Wizen up young lady take your own advice
Smile like you mean it and sit up straight
the violins and the mandolins are late
You fancy me a poet, imagine that
You’re living off the land, not off the fat
If anybody asks you, it’s not your ring
just roll your eyes and do not say a thing
sit in the corner down on the ground
so pleased to meet you don’t make a sound
tie up your ankles get on your knees
so pleased to meet you
I bet you’re pleased to meet me
(solo)
You look like a poet, at least to me
but frankly I know nothing about these things
I just try to make a living, that’s all I do
I’m so pleased to meet you
