Track Name: Bad News Blues
I know you're bad news
I know you're bad news
And I'm singing the blues
Cuz I can't say no to you

I always want what I just shouldnt have
Always the thing that's right beyond my grasp
I've got too much passion for any ordinary man
But I see you baby and I tremble within because..

When you came into town the world tunred upside down
It's not a feeling I can easily forget
No I try to say no but the feeling still grows
I have to have you in my bed

I see you baby and I know where this ends
Head in my hands and I'm ashamed I ever called you a friend
But you grab me baby and the tradgedy blurs
Even now I know I'm casting my own curse

Cuz you're bad, bad news
Your bbbbad bad bad news

But I live for the pain, I live for the strain
If it's too easy I'm just not interested
So go on and sin, and hurt me again
I never ever wanna play pretend because

Can't say no, I won't say no
Come on let's go
and take me home with you
Track Name: Eternal Optimist
I am an eternal optimist
I am very very dangerous
If you're always living on the bright side
You might get burned

I am an eternal optimist
I envy all you pessimists
If you're always living on the dark side
You don't get burned

Whenever opportunity comes my way
I always oh oh oh so naively say

This is it, this is it
This is the one thing that I need
oh this is it

This is it, this is it
this is the one thing that I wanted
This will cure all my disease

This is it

I am an eternal optimist
I am very very very very dangerous
Track Name: Opposites
Opposites attract and react
You pull me in so close, I turn back
Opposites attract and react
I turn away in fear but you're still here

And oh I love how you're so different from me
But oh could you change everything you are
Oh I love how you're so different from me
But I fear you're never gonna know my whole heart

Opposites attract and react
I wanna love you so but you'll never adapt
Opposites attract and react
I need to tell you this but I'll collapse without your kiss

Opposites attract and react
The chemistry is strong but it's not exact
Opposites attract and then they must react
Baby there's some things we just cannot neglect
Track Name: Off and On
Let's hurt ourselves again
Take a deep breath and just dive in
We've been here so many times before
And here I am still knockin on your door

When it was high it was so high
when it was low it was low
Somehow still there's something left unknown

And when I look at you everything fades away
When you take me in your arms I wanna stay

So let's break our walls within
Wipe the slate and begin again
There's something neither of us can ignore
And here you are still knockin on my door

our love grows stronger everyday

And it goes on and on and on

Then it's off

So let's not turn it off turn it on turn it on
Track Name: Home
I'm flying home to see my family
I hope I bring a few things back with me
A little piece of my humanity
To restore some of my sanity

I'm going home home where I'm free free free
Home home where I'm free to be me
Home home baby can't you see
I need a break from this city

I wanna breathe in that michigan air
And feel the breeze blowing right through my hair
I'll feel my feet as they sink in the sand
fresh water lake in the palm of my hand

I love my life I love my friends and my art
But there is nothing that can warm my heart
Like seeing my mom as she opens her arms and says
Welcome back my girl it's so good to see you
Rest your weary head and let me feed you
You've been away but now you best believe it you are

Home home where you're free free free
Home home with your family
we missed you so much darlin can't you see
Come take a break from that city

mm I'm home
mm yeah yeah
mmm

And when I say goodbye I know I'll be sad
Especially when I get that hug from my dad
He holds me tight says babe, you doin' alright?
I say yeah daddy don't you worry at night
Cuz' I'm goin

Home home where I'm free free free
Home home where I'm free to be me
Home home god it's so good to see
Those gleaming lights of my city
Track Name: Rose Colored Glasses
We've been apart for such a long long time
Still you've always been on a little piece of my mind
Dreaming of a past I thought I'd left behind
Falling back in love is such a fine, fine line

I wanna believe you're still in my life for a reason
But I don't wanna be naieve

I'm looking through rose colored glasses
and seeing a bright shinging star
I'm looking through rose colored glasses
But I know, I know I know that won't get me very far

Back in the day seemed like the happiest time of my life
I thought about the future and being your wife
There's still something about you I can't live without
So why am I still filled with such doubt

I wanna believe that we are meant to be together
But something inside feels wrong
Maybe I'm lookin through...

Well I gotta keep my head on straight
Gotta remember it all
The good times and the bad
Before I start to fall

I can't keep looking through rose colored glasses
Cuz' that isn't who you really are
Gotta take off these rose colored glasses
Cuz' I know I know I know
It won't get me very far

Cuz you're no good for my heart
