Track Name: This Time It's Different; This Time It's Better
Every time I see you baby I lose track of words
And I can't speak

Any time you say my name my legs give out
And I can hardly breathe

'cause this time it's different
This time it's better
This time I know it's real
This time it's different
This time it's better
This time I know it's real

Everybody tells me I should guard my heart
Before I go too far

But they don't know you like I know you
I already know just who you are

This time it's different
This time it's better
This time I know it's real
This time it's different
This time it's better
This time I know it's real
Track Name: Speak Up
You've seen it all now
Oh, you've seen it all
You've seen the rise and fall
But you've kept your mouth shut
Oh, you've kept your mouth shut
You say it's not your call

But there's so much you want to say and you know
The last one to shout is the first to go

Now put your hands up
It's time to stand up
We've gotta hear ya
Come on and speak up

It's time to step up
So keep your head up
We've gotta hear ya
Come on and speak up

You've come to terms now
Oh, you've come to terms
You think we'll never learn
But you've kept your mouth shut
Oh, you've kept your mouth shut
It's not your concern

But there's so much you want to say and you know
The last one to shout is the first to go

Now put your hands up
It's time to stand up
We've gotta hear ya
Come on and speak up

It's time to step up
So keep your head up
We've gotta hear ya
Come on and speak up


Hey, hey, hey, you've got to speak up
Hey, hey, hey, you've got to speak up
The last one to shout is the first to go

Now put your hands up
It's time to stand up
We've gotta hear ya
Come on and speak up

It's time to step up
So keep your head up
We've gotta hear ya
Come on and speak up
Track Name: Love You Something Good
Was it something I said
Or maybe something I did
I just don't know anymore anyway

Was it something in your head
That made you take the lowest bid
I just don't care anymore anyway

How about I just love you something good
I'll just love you like I know I should
I'll just love you something good
I'll just love you like you want to be loved

You've been pushed all around
You've been told to quiet down
Well, you could use a real man real soon

I'll pick you up off the ground
And keep you safe and sound
Yeah, I can be a real man to you

How 'bout I just love you something good
I'll just love you like I know I should
I'll just love you something good
I'll just love you like you want to be loved
Like you want to be loved

How 'bout I just love you something good
I'll just love you like I know I should
I'll just love you something good
I'll just love you like you want to

I'll just love you something good
I'll just love you like I know I should
I'll just love you something good
I'll just love you like you want to be loved
Like you want to be loved
Track Name: Be Somebody Who Has Somebody
I don’t know why
This is so hard
All that I want
Is to give all my heart

It’s not like I haven’t tried
But it’s a shot in the dark
I’m all for having fun
But I just want to

Be somebody who has somebody
Has somebody who’s here in the daylight
Somebody who has somebody
That’s just right, just right, just right
Just right for me

I’m not one for tears
So don’t expect much
But ever since you were here
I just imagine your touch

It’s not like I haven’t tried
But it’s a shot in the dark
I’m all for having fun
But I just want to


Be somebody who has somebody
Has somebody who’s here in the daylight
Somebody who has somebody
That’s just right, just right, just right
Just right for me
Track Name: I Can Do This
Does it make you feel good to drag me down
With every word that comes out of your mouth

Am I jumping the gun to assume the worst
That you won't be done until I break down first

There is nothing that you can say
That doesn’t come out as a bad cliche
There is nothing that you can do
I am going to find a way

I can do this
I can do this
I can do this

So how does it feel to be proven wrong
To be put in your place by a stupid little song

I'll say it again but just to myself
I'll say it again when I think it will help

There is nothing that you can say
That doesn’t come out as a bad cliche
There is nothing that you can do
I am going to find a way

I can do this
I can do this
I can do this

And there's something coming my way
And there's something coming around
And there's something coming, something coming, something's coming

I can do this
I can do this
I can do this
