Track Name: El Matador Beach
I held your heart on El Matador Beach
Breathing with the waves
Birds flew ahead just out of reach
In the shade beneath the cave

A girl in pink and yellow danced by
In the land of golden youth
I love you so much that it made me cry
For the sad, sad joy of the truth

Oh, hear the waves, washing clean away
Inhaling and exhaling, day after day

Try as we might, we'll never, ever control the ocean
Stop the day from becoming the night,
The minutes from drifting in motion

Oh, hear the waves, washing clean away
Inhaling and exhaling, day after day

Where are the moments past
Oh, they didn't last
And I learned too late

So many seashells kept
So many teardrops wept at the hands of fate

Oh, hear the waves, breathing on and on
They're not gonna pause for a moment
After we are gone

Oh They're not gonna pause for a moment
After we are gone
Track Name: Go Where It's Warm
I go to kiss you, you turn to the side
One little move and I crumble inside
I don't know why I ever tried to love you

Your eyes are closed, you’re far away
Dreaming about some other day
Pretending I'm not your friend, I'm somebody new

I gotta go, I gotta go
I gotta go where it's warm
'Cause the winds of change
Are blowing through
I gotta go where it's warm
Where I don't have to perform
And I'll be far, far away from you

I'm leaving behind the hesitant kind
Ones who screwed with my heart and my mind
Not quite as sexy as it seems

And I'm going to find the sweetest touch
The one who loves me oh so much
The eyes that gaze upon me as in dreams

I gotta go, I gotta go
I gotta go where it's warm
'Cause the winds of change
Are blowing through
I gotta go where it's warm
Where I don't have to perform
And I'll be far, far away from you

I still believe in impossible bliss
I'll never, ever again have to plead for a kiss
'Cause someone is going to love me when I'm grey
Won't tell me the truth, just tell me I'm cute anyway

I gotta go, I gotta go
I gotta go where it's warm
'Cause the winds of change
Are blowing through
I'm gonna go where it's warm
Where I don't have to perform
And I'll be far, far away from you

Oh, I'll be far, far away from you
Yeah, I'll be far, far away from you
Track Name: Walk It Alone
The first fire of fall
The coyotes call
An owl surveys the city

It's a challenging climb
And there isn't much time
Before the sun goes down
Seems like a pity

Up here there's no one around
Lights come on over town
The wind sounds just like the sea

I wish that you could see
The orange-purple sky
The moon coming out of the clouds
Even now after everything
I would run to you
If only I wasn't so proud
But I walk it alone

Shadows cross the hills before me
Another evening in L.A.
Try to remember
That all is passing
Starslight up, then they fade away

Birds are all crying and I keep on trying
To forget that you're not here with me

Oh I wish that you could see
The orange-purple sky
The moon coming out of the clouds
Even now after everything
I'd still run to you
If only I wasn't so proud
But I walk it alone

Birds are all crying and I keep on trying
To forget that you're not here with me

Oh I wish that you could see
The orange-purple sky
The moon coming out of the clouds
Even now after everything
I would run to you
If only I wasn't so proud
But I walk it alone
Track Name: Never Been Hurt
One day I didn’t have a care
Except my picture in the mirror
And the color of my hair
I sang along to records about tomorrow

Now my hands are worn, and my clothes are torn
And a lot of my dreams have been met with scorn
And I don’t have too much time left to borrow

But still I’m gonna love you like I’ve never been hurt before
Love you like I’ve never been hurt before

Love you like I’ve never been hurt,
I’m gonna start all over and know what it’s worth
Love you like I’ve never been hurt before

Your stubborn independence
Reminds me of myself
It doesn’t make a lot of sense
It isn’t very good for health

I know you want to be alone
But I sure like talking on the phone
And I’ve finally left my carry-on bag behind me

Yeah I'm gonna love you like I’ve never been hurt before
Love you like I’ve never been hurt before

Love you like I’ve never been hurt,
I’m gonna start all over and know what it’s worth
Love you like I’ve never been hurt before

I'm gonna start all over and know what it’s worth
Love you like I’ve never been hurt before
Track Name: So Thankful
When I awaken from a scary dream
And find you lying next to me
I feel so peaceful, calm and so serene
About the life ahead of me

No more Christmases alone and blue
Same with Valentine's and New Year's too
I never, ever thought I'd see the day
When every day's a holiday

Oh I'm so happy that I met you
I'm so thankful you are mine
I don't know what I did so right to get you
And it feels divine

Oh sweet baby, baby you're the best
You came along and slayed 'em, all the rest
And I never, ever would have guessed
I'd hit the jackpot big time in this life

Oh I'm so happy that I met you
You make it so fun to be alive
And I'm so grateful that I get you
Until the end of time

How I love it that you love romance
You love to kiss and smooch, make love and dance
And yes you're brave enough to take a chance
'Cause you know what's important in the end

And when you hold me tight so close and true
Oh I'm so thankful that you love me too
'Cause you're the best thing that I ever knew
Forever you will be my favorite friend

Oh I'm so happy that I met you
I'm so thankful you are mine
And I'm so grateful that I get you
You make me shine

I'm so happy that I met you
I'm so thankful you are mine
Track Name: No Expectations
Take me to the station
And put me on a train
‘Cause I got no expectation
To ever pass through here again

Once I was a rich girl
But now I am so poor
But never in my sweet short life
Have I felt like this before

My heart is like a diamond
But I throw my pearls at swine
And as I watched you leaving me
You packed my peace of mind

Our love was like the water
That splashes on the stone
Our love is like our music, babe
It’s here, and then it’s gone

So take me to the airport
And put me on a plane
‘Cause I got no expectations Lord
To pass through here again
To ever pass through here again
To pass through here again
Track Name: Feel It Coming
That’s it, I’m all better now
Spit up the last of what made me hurt
And I feel light as a feather now
At last I finally know my worth

Thought I’d never learn to be alone
Open all my windows wide
Turn the ringer off the phone
Light my orange candles every night

And I’m wishing on a new moon
Something better’s coming
It’s coming soon
I feel it coming, I feel it coming, I feel it coming

I close my eyes up on the high, high dive
Stretch my arms up to the sky
Endless water lies deep below
But somewhere in the air I’ll learn to fly

And I’m wishing on a new moon
Something better’s coming
It’s coming soon
I feel it coming, I feel it coming, I feel it coming

It’s so easy to complain
But it’ll make you insane
That same routine
The impulse to be mean
But the grass is oh so green
After winter rain

And I feel it coming, I feel it coming, I feel it coming
I feel it coming, I feel it coming, I feel it coming
