Track Name: Before Too Long
So you lost all your friends, but if you skip pretense
Never had them anyway
You can close that door, and in moving forward
You’ll set yourself free

Just keep your head up and remain strong
You’ll find a new life ‘fore too long

So you changed your ways, and as you clear the haze
You don’t know how to live
Well baby, give it time, and as you walk the line
You’ll find that weight will lift

Just keep your head up, and remain strong
You’ll find a new life ‘fore too long
Track Name: Give It Up
Come let your hair down, let it all hang out
Forget your worries, it will all work out

Let’s have a good time, c’mon don’t be shy
Open yourself up, don’t let it pass by

Let it go now
Let it show now
Give it up

Give generously, now don’t be stingy
Someone will be there when your glass is empty

Let go of anger, love one another
Embrace Compassion, sisters and brothers

Let it go now
Let it show now
Give it up
Track Name: Gonna Be Alright
C’mon, lift up that sad face
You’re down ‘cause you had a bad day
Bad week, bad month, bad year, I dunno
Sometimes, that’s just the way it goes

But cheer up, for things are bound to get better
Don’t you know these things don’t last forever

Sing alright - It’s gonna be alright now

So you tried to live out your big dream
You fought a good fight and it took everything
Beat up, cast out, knocked down for the count
Sometimes that’s just how it works out

But cheer up, for things are bound to get better
Don’t you know these things don’t last forever

Sing alright - It’s gonna be alright now

Well don’t lose hope for the future on account of the past
Your life isn’t over until you breathe your last
So when this world has got you down my friends
Just shrug it off, stand up and sing out again…
Track Name: Tell Your Story Well
Don’t’ give into complacency, oh no
Don’t let go of your sacred dream, oh no
Everyone that you meet, every person you tell
You can change the whole wide world
If you tell your story well

Don’t give into the voice of doubt, oh no
Don’t let go of your great ideals, oh no
Every breath that you breathe
Holds the power to compel
You can change the whole wide world
If you tell your story well

It’s up to me, it’s up to you
It’s up to us, and there’s nothing we can’t do

In the darkness of the age
Hope can seem to fade away
But there’s light in your spirit if you’ll let it shine
We can all be free if you let it shine
Won’t you let it shine
Track Name: Life Carries On
Time slips away, more every day
Life carries on, life carries on

Change is gonna come
To the weak and to the strong
Life carries on, life carries on

Hold on to love

We all are one, we will become
We, with open minds, truth we will find

Hold on to love
Track Name: Through To Your Heart
You locked your door and you hid the key
You don’t wanna hear from me, oh no - oh no
You say you need change, but you’re not that strong
Well I don’t get just what it is you’re on - what you’re on

What can I say when you’re acting this way?
What can I do?

How do I get through to your heart?
How do I get through to your heart?
The deepest part of who you are
How do I get through to your heart?

You want your space ‘til this thing’s through
Well I’m not giving up on you oh no – oh no
You feel like you can’t break these chains
But together we can beat this thing so come on – come on

There is hope, you don’t have to walk alone
What will it take?

How do I get through to your heart?
How do I get through to your heart?
The deepest part of who you are
How do I get through to your heart?

I’m crying out – can you hear me now?
I’m screaming out woah-oh

How do I get through…
Track Name: How Did You Know?
You’re the one that was sent
When the times were tough
You’re the one I needed so much
You’re the one and I don’t care how it looks
Yeah, I’m gonna sing out
Gonna sing about your love

How did you know I needed you?
How did you know to call?
How did you know I needed you so much?
How did you know?

Just when I thought that times were getting tough
Just when I needed you so much
You came along and didn’t care how it looked
Yeah, I’m gonna sing out
Gonna sing about your love

How did you know I needed you?
How did you know to call?
How did you know I needed you so much?
How did you know?

I couldn’t go on any more
I couldn’t carry on – carry on without your love – oh
One more day and I don’t’ know if
I’d have made it out
Made it out of here

How did you know…
Track Name: Self-Destructive Habits
Sing a song of something good for once today
We already know ‘bout all the other junk anyway
And we’ll never make it
If we just sit around complaining

Tell us something good, something we wanna hear
Careful of the words that you put in our ear
If they cause us all to perish
All our deaths will be on your head

We’ve all got our self-destructive habits
Won’t you come and fix me up?
Come and fix me up? Wah – alright now…

Is there anything more fleeting than the good times?
Does anyone here need a chance
To kick-back and unwind
If you got a hand-out, man, I’ll take it
I’ll pay it back if I can make it
Track Name: I Just Wanna Rock'N'Roll
Don’t wanna talk about the President
Don’t wanna know where all the money went
Don’t wanna worry ‘bout payin’ the rent
I just wanna rock’n’roll – just wanna rock’n’roll

Don’t wanna keep workin’ for the man
Don’t wanna waste time on a five-year plan
I can’t explain it, you don’t understand
But I just wanna rock’n’roll – just wanna rock’n’roll
