Track Name: September
Lately I’ve been showing signs
Of far too many starting lines
I remember when ours was the only one

But some part of me can’t help react
To every ready, set and sudden crack
There I go again jumping off the gun

I’ve grown so tired of all these ways
And the marathons that run for days
My body’s broke from all of this pursuit

And I’ve felt it as our candles burn
Out by the point of no return
How I miss you babe, do you miss me too

Come inside love, come and rest with me
‘Cause we’ve been working hard love
It’s time to let things be

Those seven sweet September days
The thunderstorms and your western ways
It was harvest time and every taste was new

We hopped the gates and slipped the guards
And traded wounds like baseball cards
Now I miss you babe, do you miss me too

Come inside love, come and rest with me
‘Cause we’ve been working hard love
It’s time to let things be what they’re gonna be
‘Cause right now what I need
Is just you and me

Oh tell me love do you remember
By the river’s edge, we just watched it flow
And the sweetness of that September
Oh now tell me love, where did it go

So let them have their starting lines
‘Cause I’ve lost my taste for things that shine
And I was never great with the follow through

I want to take some time with every step
Before my weary mind forgets
That I miss you babe, do you miss me too

Come inside love, come and rest with me
‘Cause we’ve been working hard love
It’s time to let things be what they’re gonna be
‘Cause right now what I need
Is just you and me
Track Name: Once Again
Baby here I am, I’ve fallen down so low
My sun has disappeared, my river’s lost its flow

The devil took a bite and now he won’t let go
I tried to shake him loose but babe I just don’t know

Oh and I’ve fallen once again
It’s never if I will but when
I’ve done everything I can still here I am

Gone and fallen once again
It’s never if I will but when
I’ve done everything I can still here I am
Once again

The evil monkeys fly, their shadows down below
See the sand slip fast and my panic grow

No forest only trees, they’re shaking to and fro
I've got no yellow bricks here to guide me home

Oh and I’ve fallen once again
It’s never if I will but when
I’ve done everything I can still here I am

Gone and I’ve fallen once again
It’s never if I will but when
I’ve done everything I can still here I am
Once again

Tell me now will ever get better
Tell me now can it ever get better
I tell you now that it’s gonna get better

‘Cause I’ll rise up once again
And it’s not if I will but when
In spite of everything I’ll stand up
Once again
Track Name: Superman
I remember empty jars and fireflies
And fireworks on the Fourth of July
And Jenny O in the yellow house across the street

Cutting deals with baseball cards
And the Little League fields where we were stars
Rode my bike so fast thinking I could somehow beat that heat

I was so young, I felt invincible
Like some childhood Superman
And though I can close my eyes and it’s all right here
Well I’ll never walk those roads
I’ll never walk those roads again

A few years later running free
Full of piss and possibility
Going faster, going higher, going longer too

It was any way or any how
Like a man of steel with a twisted vow
If it didn’t kill me it would only make me stronger

I was so young, I felt invincible
Like some teenage Superman
And though I can close my eyes and it’s all right here
Well I’ll never walk those roads
I’ll never walk those roads again

I've got a head that’s full of worry now
That’s never sure and don’t know how
The simple answers I no longer understand

Bravado’s now just a trait of fools
And I ain’t as quick to break the rules
And it’s still hard to say but sometimes I just need a hand
Tell me where’d you go
Where are you Superman

Late at night when they’re all asleep
When all my thoughts are running deep
And my mind starts rolling backwards playing tricks on me

Tell my why the hell do I still care
About reflections in some funhouse mirror
When I can’t say for sure just what it is I see

I was so young, I felt invincible
Our good old hero Superman
Somehow I can close my eyes and it’s all right here
But I’ll never walk those roads
I'll never walk those roads again
So tell me where’d you go
Where are you Superman
Track Name: Butterfly
Butterfly at my window there
Have you got something to offer, something to share
‘Cause I’ve been stuck here all alone
Just trying to get past the seeds I’ve sown

Butterfly, don’t fly away
‘Cause butterfly, I think I need you to stay

You might be wondering, it might seem strange
But I’ve been thinking you know something about change
So be my teacher and be my friend
‘Cause I need some help now starting over again

Butterfly, don’t fly away
‘Cause butterfly, I think I need you to stay

Do you remember, were you unprepared
And in that darkness, did you get scared
‘Cause you know I’m frightened by those sorts of things
But I want to do what it takes now to get those wings

‘Cause butterfly, I want to fly away
Butterfly, I want to fly away
I want to fly away
Track Name: If or When
There you go again
As if your world was gonna end
Like no one ever said this would be hard

And so you kick it down the line
Praying for more time
So practiced now at keeping up your guard

Are you scared of where it’s going
Or just afraid of knowing
That you might have to finish what you start
And so the battle rages on inside your heart

The feeling never wanes
No, some part of it remains
Don’t matter if you look the other way

But if you never follow through
Afraid you’ll lose some part of you
I tell you now you’ll lose something anyway

Are you scared of where it’s going
Or just afraid of knowing
That you might have to finish what you start
And so the battle rages on inside your heart

It’s no surprise how your heart’s been breaking
Compromised by all the time you’ve taken
And if it’s right, then when will you
Stop this fight and once again let it start
Find peace within your heart

So here you are again
At the point of if or when
Trying to find the strength to follow through

But you’ve been here before
Knocking at this door
So tell me now, what you’re gonna do

Are you scared of where it’s going
Or just afraid of knowing
That you might have to finish what you start
And so the battle rages on inside your heart

Afraid you’ll have to finish what you start
And so the battle rages on inside your heart
