Track Name: New York City
Once upon a long ago
Your hand was mine to hold
But now you’d never know
It’s as if I was a ghost
A memory deleted
A runoff sentence not completed
But I was there
I was there

‘Cause New York City was my witness
To every act of love that we committed
Astor Place saw me kiss you
Central Park helped me win you
Snowing on a winter night
I held you close, I held you tight

I heard the things you said
I heard we were just friends
Friends who walked alone
Trading secrets I hope you never told
But if you look me in the eye
A thousand heavens will collide
‘Cause I was there
I was there

CHORUS

You can say what you say
New York City saw it this way

CHORUS
Track Name: I Never Knew You
I NEVER KNEW YOU

I never knew you, I never knew you
Like this, like this
I never used you, I never used you
Like that, like that

And yet I find myself here fighting for your love
Formulating fabrications for things never done
I see the bullet in your gun

CHORUS

Can we take a breath and see another side?
Guilty as I seem to you I offer one reply:
Without you I would die

CHORUS
Track Name: Better Late Than Never
There’s a million different things that I’ve never done
And I don’t want a million and one
Lovers never kissed, opportunities missed
Never taken that much of a risk
So put me on a plane and get me to the show
I’m sedated and I hate it and I want to go
Somewhere in the sun, somewhere I can run
Somewhere I can live again
And could you be there too?

Oh – better late than never, I say
Oh – better late than never, I say

Time and time again the boredom never ends
Taking each day like a thief
Leaving me the crumbs of someone else’s fun
Hungering for something new
So maybe I can change and get back in the game
And forget about the wasted days
I could’ve done this, I should’ve done that
I would’ve done it all for you
So whatcha think I’m gonna do?

CHORUS

So put me on a plane and get me to the show
I’m sedated and I hate it and I want to go
Somewhere in the sun, somewhere I can run
Somewhere I can live again
And could you be there too?

CHORUS

Memories are waiting out there
Track Name: Stay With Me
Tell me how the gods above
Conspired with your prior loves
And set you on a lonely road
A wandering and lonely soul
And let’s figure out what brought you here
What gave you, what gave you fear
How every corner you have turned
Is more than just a lesson learned

Stay with me
Stay with me
Stay because the moon is bright
The heavens are aligned tonight
Stay with me
Stay with me

I never want to be the one
The one who lets you down
The one who never seems to find the time
The time he never found for you
I swear I’ll be the kind of man
You read about in foreign lands
Or maybe just a simple fool
Boring and reliable

CHORUS

Cross my heart and hope to die
I’ve never had a better time
Better unbelievably
Is what you have become to me
You gotta feel what I can see
I’m blinded and I’m hopelessly
In love with you, in love with you
In love with you, in love with you

CHORUS
Track Name: Closer To You
And every morning I want to see you
See you by my side
And if I can hold you I won’t forget you
When we say good bye

Cause if just one star shines
Every dark night
I will know you’re nearby

So shine every night
And light up my sky
Bring me closer to you
So shine every night
And light up my sky
Bring me closer to you

And when the clouds and rain upon me
I won’t go back inside
Cause if just one cloud goes and leaves it open
I will stay there all night

Cause if just one star shines
Every dark night
I will know you’re nearby

So shine every night
And light up my sky
Bring me closer to you
So shine every night
And light up my sky
Bring me closer to you
Track Name: Wish You Were Mine
Cigarette smoke and empty stares
A mystery girl in a wooden-back chair
Reading a book and sipping a wine
Looking divine, I wish you were mine
I wish you were mine
You look so divine, I wish you were mine

I missed my stop because of you
I gotta double-back to Sixth Avenue
Cross my heart and hope to die
I'm gonna tell her this time
I wish you were mine
I wish you were mine
You look so divine, I wish you were mine

And when I held you close to me
I could feel the space when we didn't speak
I knew I'd never be your light
But I'd think all the time
I wish you were mine
I wish you were mine
You look so divine, I wish you were mine

Heaven waits for another man
Who gets your smile and holds your hand
And I keep searching for a pair of eyes
That look at me and say
I wish you were mine
I wish you were mine
You look so divine, I wish you were mine
Track Name: Tonight
Tonight, I leave the past behind
And find out if I have it in me
To laugh and then be
Free of all
Free of all the pain

Life is a mystery
That I, I don’t know, I don’t know
There was a time when your sun shined my night
So bright, so bright
But people come and go
It’s just so hard, so hard to let go

CHORUS

I’ve been afloat in the ocean alone, all alone
I didn’t know that you came here
To throw me a line, just a line
But how I see how you
Give me hope in the things that we do

CHORUS

Tonight, the world has come alive
And let me see that everything is meant to be
Both good, bad, and in between

CHORUS
