Track Name: Remember November
Remember November
Mike P. © 2009

Remember November spent
swimming in leaves
red and gold gifts dropped
down from the trees
there was no concern
with the dirt on our knees
or how much the grass
would color our jeans

Remember November she'd say
Remember November always

Remember November spent
jumping off swings
and landing the farthest
meant cookies and things
sweet cider and pie
that mother would bring
as long as no one
ended up in a sling

Remember November she'd say
Remember November always

I will hold onto you
and my goal is to lock you away
safe in my memory
as a pleasantry set on delay

Remember November she'd say
Remember November always
Track Name: Had Enough
Had Enough
Mike P. © 2009

the door slams our picture off the wall
the glass shatters all over the hall
I know that we need repairs
I shake my head and go upstairs

Do I make you feel like you have had enough
Cause you make me feel like I have had enough

I sit and eat across an empty chair
my steak begins to taste like despair
watching the clock I start to calculate
what could keep you coming home so late

Do I make you feel like you have had enough
Cause you make me feel like I have had enough

we lost our love
and passion that we had long ago
I'm tired of
pretending like there is nothing wrong

Do I make you feel like you have had enough
Cause you make me feel like I have had enough

Alone

She turns and frowns
tears roll down her cheek and drip onto her gown
she wishes that she could suddenly disappear so
no one sees her crying here alone

they took a walk late afternoon
and watched the sun pull up the moon
and starry romantic sky

curled up cuddling in her room
he said he loved her much too soon
but she ignored the warning signs

She turns and frowns
tears roll down her cheek and drip onto her gown
she wishes that she could suddenly disappear so
no one sees her crying here alone

She went out shopping for her dress
not expecting loneliness
was included in the price

What a tragic circumstance
but she could not wait to dance
all night with her love

She turns and frowns
tears roll down her cheek and drip onto her gown
she wishes that she could suddenly disappear so
no one sees her crying here alone

Where's her angel now?
All the things she thought he was
were wrong somehow
Where's her angel now?
Everything she'd wanted
she thought was found

She turns and frowns
tears roll down her cheek and drip onto her gown
she wishes that she could suddenly disappear so
no one sees her crying here alone
Track Name: Alright
Alright

packing tape and Styrofoam
scattered all over the ground
shape escape to a new home
in towers of tan and brown
I'll move them when you're not around

It's already hard enough to say goodbye
but you see a new start might be worth half a try
I promise everything will be alright

highway lines and bright headlights
darkened by gray cloudy skies
reignites the candlelight
that once reflected off your brown eyes
that night you had me mesmerized

It's already hard enough to say goodbye
but you see a new start might be worth half a try
this is where we disagree
cause the difference between you and me
is that I know everything will be al-

-right even though I'm holding my phone
it might be you calling cause you're alone
at night wishing you could smell my cologne
I find this tougher then I could have known
But still

It's already hard enough to say goodbye
but you see a new start might be worth half a try
this is where we disagree
cause the difference between you and me
is that I know everything will be alright
Track Name: Stay With Me
Stay With Me
Mike P. © 2009

slow wheels turn
in my head. I’m finding I
slowly learn
you will sink in quicksand

unless you yearn
enough to chance it and
overturn
new leaves on new branches

and I will find my day
but until then I will say
Just stay with me my love and hold on
maybe our love is strong enough

stop this blur
in my head. I'm finding that
I prefer
more than just oxygen

but I deter
until I am certain I'll
come to terms
with my stance and demands

and I will find my day
but until then I will say
Just stay with me my love and hold on
maybe our love is strong enough

I have no quick remarks, my distant heart wonders
why it's looking for more parts, it still can start yet keeps on searching

and I will find my day
but until then I will say
Just stay with me my love and hold on
maybe our love is strong enough
Track Name: Something New
Something New
Mike P. © 2009

It might be palm trees
swaying in a summer breeze
that gets me closer

waking up at nine
waving at the Hollywood sign
might get me closer

I've been looking for something new
to change my eyes, to change my view
wish someone would tell me what to do
to find that something new.

she might be five foot four
brown hair with laughs galore
that gets me closer

giving love another try
even though I know it's on
short supply

and works against
my own defense
might get me closer

Cause I've been looking for something new
to change my eyes, to change my view
wish someone would tell me what to do
to find that something new.
Track Name: How You Sing
How You Sing
Mike P. © 2009

Press the pedal to the floor
until blurs of green and yellow are ignored
Hold the wheel as you drive like a runaway train
Glides on steel

Breathe in slow down take in all in sight
Don't hold back at all, not at all

Cruise around with windows down
nothing but moonlight and highway is around.
cool night air curls and flows its fingers
through your hair

Breathe in slow down take in all in sight
Don't hold back at all, not at all

Sing until you lose your voice
Laugh until your lungs run out of air
Love long and live strong
Just remember it’s only all in how you sing

Crank the volume knob to ten
replace your reality with magical pretend.
go explore that's what your imagination
is there for

Breathe in slow down take in all in sight
Don't hold back at all,
Sing until you lose your voice
Laugh until your lungs run out of air
Love long and live strong
Just remember
it's only all in how the

melodies console you
and reach into your soul

Sing until you lose your voice
Laugh until your lungs run out of air
Love long and live strong
Just remember it's only all in how the

Sing until you lose your voice
Laugh until your lungs run out of air
Love long and live strong
Just remember it’s only all in how you sing
Track Name: Midnight
Midnight

late night I wish you'd let me sleep right
before the morning comes bright
crashing through my windows

lately we can't seem to agree
so I lay here lonely
and wonder if she knows

the things said only in my head as I've laid here in my bed

Midnight I've tried
my head under my sheets
Midnight I've tried
counting all the sheep
Midnight I've tried to dream

Dark room I'll try to become immune
to heartache so that real soon
I'll stop being obsessed.

for now those silhouettes and shadows
that I am up against
won't let me lay to rest

the things said only in my head as I've laid here in my bed

Midnight I've tried
my head under my sheets
Midnight I've tried
counting all the sheep
Midnight I've tried to dream

cause nothing else could ever bring her back
no magic spell or wand that I could wave at
her picture to talk to her or hear her laugh
wish I could relax

Midnight I've tried
my head under my sheets
Midnight I've tried
counting all the sheep
Midnight I've tried to dream
Track Name: What Am I Waiting For
What Am I Waiting For
Mike P. © 2009

I say hello
can't find the words that I should know
I let you go
because of fears I should outgrow

what am I waiting for
what am I waiting for
talk alone won't help me anymore
what am I waiting for
what am I waiting for
I'll never be prepared for what's in store

I think aloud
allowing hope to be put out.
but am I proud
that it's overshadowed by doubt

what am I waiting for
what am I waiting for
talk alone won't help me anymore
what am I waiting for
what am I waiting for
I'll never be prepared for what's in store

unless I try
cause I'll never learn
unless I do
and my concerns
will eat me through
unless I try

what am I waiting for
what am I waiting for
talk alone won't help me anymore
what am I waiting for
what am I waiting for
I'll never be prepared for what's in store
Track Name: Don't Have The Time
Don't Have the Time
Mike P. © 2009

Where are you going? Why are you running?
For some reason it always seems
like you're running from me
Take me or leave me she says through her tears
on the opposite end of the phone
you like being alone?

no need to start getting loud
just stop it here stop it here stop it here

I don't want to fight with you tonight
cause I don't have the time
Could we take all of our differences
And set them all aside

What are you saying? Stop dancing around with your words and quit playing these games
Cause if you're gonna complain

Give up or cave in, whatever you call it there's lots of things I'd like to change
although you mind find it strange

no need to start getting loud
just stop it here stop it here stop it here

I don't want to fight with you tonight
cause I don't have the time
Could we take all of our differences
And set them all aside
