Track Name: Real, Too Real
The world still looks the same to me as it did yesterday
It's a cruel reality but it's the game we play, yes it is
Running 'round in circles all the time
But it doesn't look so bad when you're in the frame
And it doesn't sound so bad when I hear your name, yes it's true
Running 'round just wishing you were mine

But I know you wouldn't understand
There's nothing that I can teach
I know I could never be your man
You're close but out of my reach

You're real, too real for me
You'd wonder what's the deal with me
You're real, too real for me

Here I go alone again, I'll fight another round
While my head is in the clouds, you're still on the ground and can't you see
The ground's an overrated place to be
Don't you want to see things from another point of view
Don't you want to think about all that we could do, you and me
Take a step outside reality

But I know it isn't in the cards
I'll play the hand I've ben dealt
When I fell for you I sure fell hard
Wishing you knew how I felt

You're real, too real for me
You'd wonder what's the deal with me
You're real, too real for me

I'm far ahead, you're far behind, I'm out of my mind in love with you

The world still looks the same to me as it did yesterday
It's a cruel reality but it's the game we play, yes it is
Running 'round in circles all the time
But it doesn't look so bad when you're in the frame
And it doesn't sound so bad when I hear your name, yes it's true
Running 'round just wishing you were mine

But I know you wouldn't understand
There's nothing that I can teach
I know I could never be your man
You're close but out of my reach

You're real, too real for me
You'd wonder what's the deal with me
You're real, too real for me *2x*
Track Name: Here in the Shadows
Malina dances and she takes a bow
The curtain closes and she takes her leave
She wonders how she'll get away somehow
To a place with better air to breathe

Ohh they'll all be clapping their hands, while looking on in the stands
With prying eyes beneath their brow
And even though she's spent, it'll pay for her rent
It looks like this is home for now

Here in the shadows, you do what you can
To not get screwed and to manipulate
Hell of a shadow, with the shell of a man
And soon this world turns into a place to hate

And Malina is a friend of mine
She's got a mortgage and her mouth to feed
But it don't cut it working nine to five
It just doesn't give her what she needs

Ohh a little night on the town, a little fooling around
It's going to be an easy fix
So take your high heels off, honey you're on the clock
Everybody has their kicks

Here in the shadows, they don't know your name
"Come over here, give me a kiss."
Isn't he shallow, hiding his shame
"Let's not tell my wife about this."

Woah but honey don't you cry, keep your head held high
You better go collect your pay
You've only just begun, it'll sure be fun
I know you'll be a star one day

But you're in the shadows, and you're here to stay
It has a knack of getting under your skin
If you leave the shadows, if you get away
Goodbye for now, you'll be back again.
Track Name: Right For You
You've made it very clear
You've made me realize that
We've grown apart
I'm sorry if I broke your heart

We've both got growing up to do
But maybe when that time is though
You'll be right for me and I'll be right for you

And I made it very clear
That I don't want a love that's
On borrowed time
Or a love that's past its prime

We've both moved on to someone new
But the feelings that we had were true
You were right for me and I was right for you

There'll come a day when all the things you said
Will fill your head with memories of days gone by
And wondering why we went our separate ways
And thinking 'bout what I'm up to these days

And I made it very clear
I won't forget about you
And though it's the end
I know that I'll love again

We've both got living life to do
But deep inside we always knew
You were right for me and I was right for you

There'll come a day when all the things I said
Will fill my head with memories of days gone by
And wondering why we went our separate ways
And thinking 'bout what you're up to these days

And I made it very clear
I won't forget about you
And though it's the end
I know that I'll love again

We've both got living life to do
But deep inside we always knew
You were right for me and I was right for you

You were right for me and I was right for you
Track Name: How Does She Do It
How does she do it, how does she do the things she does
Maybe it’s her style, or the way she smiles, maybe it’s the way she combs her hair
How does she do it, how does she make me feel this way
Her little eye’s a winking, but it’s got me thinking, I’m looking into something that isn’t there

And I wish I knew it, how does she do it?

How does she do it, how does she have this hold on me
Maybe I’ve been lonely, for a one and only, maybe I don’t have a place to go
How does she do it, how does she make me feel so good
Maybe she’s been waiting, and anticipating, and if it’s true please tell me, I wanna know

And I wish I knew it, how does she do it?


You got me chasing you all around, you say you want me then you’ll put me down
Now I’m not playing I’m not going to fight, 'cause what you’re doing to me just ain't right
You say you’re lonely baby I am too, you want somebody but you don’t know who
You treat me wrong but I’m stuck like glue, there’s just no getting over you

How does she do it, how does she do the things she does
Maybe it’s her style, or the way she smiles, maybe it’s the way she combs her hair
How does she do it, how does she make me feel this way
Her little eye’s a winking, but it’s got me thinking, I’m looking into something that isn’t there

And I wish I knew it, how does she do it?

How does she do it
How does she do it
Track Name: Stay Tuned
When there's no more songs left to play
And the stars have all come down from the stage
Will you still be listening to me, ohh
Are you going to stay tuned to me

When there's no more words left to write
When the day is gone and turned to night
Will you still be holding me my love, ohh
Are you going to stay tuned to me

Just a single touch
Can mean so much
It can mend a heart
That's been torn apart

When there's no more love left to give
I couldn't carry on, I couldn't live
Will you still love me when we're though, oh you
Are you going to stay tuned to me
