Track Name: Start Your Engines
Start your engines, start your boats

Feel the movement, make the most

It’s never that easy, it’s never that easy, it’s never that easy,

Start your engines…



Call your mother, call a friend

You may need them, make amends

It’s never that easy, it’s never that easy, it’s never that easy,

Call your mother…



Pack your suitcase, pack it all

Pack your memories, see them crawl

It’s never that easy, it’s never that easy, it’s never that easy,

Pack your memories…
Track Name: Pastoral
Tom Wait’s music was perfect for the road

We fought the way there but we were happy on the way back home

The scenery was moving, the scenery was moving, the scenery was moving…



The frost comes early in the mountains and it turns the trees

Into reds and yellows and purples and scattered greens

The houses were cookies, the houses were cookies, the houses were cookies…

And assorted sweets…



Oooh…



The frost comes early in the mountains and it turns the trees

Into reds and yellows and purples and scattered greens

The houses are cookies, the houses are cookies, the houses are cookies…

And assorted sweets…



Oooh…
Track Name: The Mouse
Once I had a mouse in my apartment,

And now every time I hear movement,

Out of the corner of my eye… I think I see a mouse.



I ain’t young and I ain’t foolish

I know what I see and how to prove it

And from the corner of my eye… I think I saw you wink.



Once I had a man and he was pretty,

And he gave me love and he gave me pity,

But from the corner of my eye… I knew that it would die.



Everyone who comes and goes,

Shows us what we didn’t know.

But this time is not like those,

I’m happy that it’s you I chose.



Ooh



I ain’t young and I ain’t weak

So baby won’t you stay with me.

Out of the corner of my eye… I see you kissing my cheek.



Listen what I have to say,

We only have so many days.

So, from the corner of your eye… decide if you wanna stay.



Everyone who comes and goes,

Shows us what we didn’t know.

But this time is not like those,

I’m happy that it’s you I chose.



Ooh
Track Name: Bumper Cars
Daddy, will you steer me, down the line.

The neighbor’s cheering, as I’m riding by

Getting steady, by and by,

Hold on ready, one more try…



Somehow I took off, in between

The gas station and the Dairy Queen



Maybe you can hear me, calling in the dark

Are you anywhere near me, in this crowded amusement park?

Cotton candy, sticky stands

Empty tummy, empty hands



Somehow we got lost, in between

The bumper cars and the trampolines



Somehow we got lost, in between

You wanted bumper cars

I wanted trampolines
Track Name: Anthem(s)
Same as lyrics to “The Star Spangled Banner”
Track Name: Anna
Anna and I got sick

And we’ve been in bed for weeks

It’s taken us a bit by surprise

Anna and I got sick

And we’re sweating through the sheets

We’re spending the whole day inside



We’ve let everyone know

We’ve cancelled our shows

We’re waiting to feel like ourselves



Doo doo…



Anna and I are rich

And we’ve known it now for weeks

We just don’t want to spend it all at once

Anna and I got rich

On one of those lucky streaks

We’re filling up our cheeks

We have, everything we need

As long as we take our time

We’ll have enough…



Doo doo…
Track Name: I'm On Fire (cover)
Hey little boy where’d your mama go

Did she go and leave you all alone

Oh, I’ve got a big desire

Oh oh oh I’m on fire



Tell me now baby is she good to you

And can she do to you the things that I do

Oh oh, I can take you higher

Oh, oh oh, I’m on fire



Sometimes it’s like someone took a knife,

Baby edgy and dull

And cut a six inch valley in the middle of my soul



At night I wake up with the sheets soaking wet

And a freight train running through the middle of my head

Only you, can cool my desire,

Oh, oh, oh, I’m on fire

Oh, oh, oh, I’m on fire

Oh, oh, oh, I’m on fire



Oooh…



Sometimes it’s like someone took a knife,

Baby edgy and dull

And cut a six inch valley in the middle of my soul



At night I wake up with the sheets soaking wet

And a freight train running through the middle of my head

Only you, can cool my desire,

Oh, oh, oh, I’m on fire

Oh, oh, oh, I’m on fire

Oh, oh, oh, I’m on fire
Track Name: I Miss Berlin
I miss Berlin

I miss my friends

I want to be there, be there aga- a- a- a- a- a- ain

Yes it would be, success for me,

if I could be in two places at once.



I’d be in your house, I’d be in your yard

I’d be in your head, I’d be in your heart



Wait I’m getting carried away…



I miss Berlin

I miss Kottbusser Tor

I want to be there,

Be there much mo– o– o– o– o– o– ore

Yes it would be, success for me,

if I could be in two places at once.



I’d be in your heart, I’d be in your head,

I’d be in your arms, I’d be in your bed,



Wait, I’m getting carried away…



I miss Berlin

I like the TV Tower

I want to be there,

Be there right no– o– o– o– o– o– ow

Yes it would be, success for me,

if I could be in two places at once.



I want to be

In two places, at once!

Shua!
