California town on a warm sunny night I remember you at the old stop light I was young and bored looking for something to do Waiting on the street, that’s when I saw you I thought it was June, but it might have been July I looked out my car just as you walked by I still know your name and I think that you’d agree That was long ago. Did you notice me? Now I see that memories of summer drift away I still think about you now Wondering just where you are California town on a warm summer night Once again, I wait at the old stop light I’m alone and tired and I’ve got too much to do Someone on the street makes me think of you Now I see that memories of summer drift away

It’ll all be okay She’s not listening anyway You can try but you won’t make her see 
In the end nothing’s new You can’t change her point of view You can try but you won’t make her see She’s the one who thinks she’s got it all figured out She’s got all the answers but you’re still filled with doubt Maybe you could help her see the error of her ways But this just might go on and on for days It’ll all be okay She’s not listening anyway You can try but you won’t make her see 
In the end nothing’s new You can’t change her point of view You can try but you won’t make her see Look through her perspective, her rhythm and her rhyme I would love to help her out but I don’t have the time 
She’s got her opinion, but she don’t have a clue I don’t think there’s much that I can do It’ll all be okay She’s not listening anyway You can try but you won’t make her see 
In the end nothing’s new You can’t change her point of view You can try but you won't make her see Somewhere there’s a forest where everything’s at peace With a sense of calmness that time will never cease Maybe I could take her there if only for a week Wouldn’t that solution be unique It’ll all be okay She’s not listening any way You can try but you won’t make her see 
In the end nothing’s new You can’t change her point of view You can try but you won't make her see La la la, la la la La la la-la la la-la La la la la la-la, la la-la La la la, la la la La la la-la la la-la La la la la la-la, la la-la You can try but you won’t make her see You can try but you won’t make her see You can try but you won’t make her... La la la, la la la La la la-la la la-la La la la la la-la, la la-la La la la, la la la La la la-la la la-la La la la la la-la La la-la

Bakersfield 03:54
Workin’ I’m playing in a band We just got some gigs in L.A. Sleepin’ On somebody’s floor Ain’t the way I wanna spend my day Hopin’ That I can catch a break My clunker’s gonna take me home Drivin’ Down Highway 99 Cruising down the great unknown It’s getting late But I can’t wait To fall asleep in my own bed The miles go on Into the dawn And I’m just hanging by a thread When the red light’s flashing and the engine’s up in smoke And you’re falling asleep at the wheel Count your blessings and your change Yeah, I know it may sound strange But you’re only halfway to Bakersfield Driftin’ The radio is on  I just need to stay awake Thinkin’ Did I just miss my turn This all might be a big mistake It’s getting late But I can’t wait To fall asleep in my own bed The miles go on Into the dawn And I’m just hanging by a thread When the red light’s flashing and the engine’s up in smoke And you’re falling asleep at the wheel Count your blessings and your change Yeah, I know it may sound strange But you’re only halfway to Bakersfield When the red light’s flashing and the engine’s up in smoke And you’re falling asleep at the wheel Count your blessings and your change Yeah, I know it may sound strange But you’re only halfway to Bakersfield When the red light’s flashing and the engine’s up in smoke And you’re falling asleep at the wheel Count your blessings and your change Yeah, I know it may sound strange But you’re only halfway to Bakersfield

 We can have a real good time

Do you think someone’s trying to follow you Is there somebody under the bed Are you thinking that rumor just might be true Could it be that it’s all in your head Do you think someone’s trying to follow you  Wait, I think that’s already been said Do you need an alternative point of view I think maybe it’s all in your head I think maybe it’s all in your head If I close my eyes  Will it make it go away Close my eyes If I close my eyes Will it make it go away Do you think someone’s trying to follow you Is it true what the neighbors have said Are you thinking that rumor just might be true Could it be that it’s all in your head Is there some way to finally find a clue In a book that nobody has read If suspicions are true it all points to you I think maybe it’s all in your head Maybe it’s all in your head If I close my eyes  Will it make it go away Close my eyes If I close my eyes Will it make it go away Is there something that we need to talk about Is there something that needs to be said All your stories are leaving me filled with doubt Could it be that it’s all in your head Do you think someone’s trying to follow you  Wait, I think that’s already been said Do you need an alternative point of view I think maybe it’s all in your head I think maybe it’s all in your head Maybe it’s all in your head Maybe it’s all in your head

If my car was haunted Would you take a ride Would you climb in back of my Cadillac What would you decide If a ghost was driving Would you hide your doubts What’s your position on apparitions What’s that all about You better be safe than sorry That’s what your mama said You better be safe than feeling sorry instead If my car was haunted Would you take a ride Would you take the wheel and begin to feel How to be alive If a ghost was driving Just about midnight Would you grab the keys and pray on your knees Till the morning light You better be safe than sorry That’s what your mama said You better be safe than feeling sorry instead You better be safe than sorry That’s what your mama said You better be safe than feeling sorry instead

I don’t know why you and I should fight I’ve done everything to make things right Yeah I fixed my hair I bought new clothes to wear Still I sit alone most every night I think you know what I’m talking about Don’t need a genius to figure it out Might need my help When you finally do Don’t call me baby I’ll call you Once I thought I’d be your shining star The more I’d try the more you’d raise the bar Now I wonder why Why I even try To put my hand into that cookie jar I think you know what I’m talking about Don’t need a genius to figure it out Might need my help when the rent comes due Well don’t call me baby I’ll call you I think you know what I’m talking about Don’t need a genius to figure it out Might need my help when the rent comes due Well don’t call me baby I’ll call you Now I see your world is in reverse And you think things couldn’t get much worse Yeah, I know it’s true You’ve got work to do Welcome to a whole new universe I think you know what I’m talking about Don’t need a genius to figure it out When you’re not sure just what to do Don’t call me baby I’ll call you Don’t call I won’t answer Well, don’t call me baby I’ll call you

You told me You wanted to have fun You told me  That I might be the one But I’ve been here before I’d give but you’d want more You told me You would see it through If only That turned out to be true But I just got your text And I know what comes next It wasn’t gonna work out anyway It doesn’t really matter what you say I did try my best Let’s give it a rest It wasn’t gonna work out anyway It doesn’t really matter what you say It’s time to move on Now I’ll write this song You told me I needed to relate I told you I don’t want to debate ‘Cause you and I don’t fit So why should I commit It wasn’t gonna work out anyway It doesn’t really matter what you say I did try my best Let’s give it a rest It wasn’t gonna work out anyway It doesn’t really matter what you say It’s time to move on Now I’ll write this song You and I don’t fit So why should I commit It wasn’t gonna work out anyway It doesn’t really matter what your say I did try my best Let’s give it a rest It wasn’t gonna work out anyway It doesn’t really matter what you say It’s time to move on Now I’ll write this song It wasn’t gonna work out anyway It doesn’t really matter what you say It wasn’t gonna work out anyway It doesn’t really matter what you say

Hush 04:31
Draw the curtain dim the lights I don’t like the room too bright You say I’m too hard to see I don’t think I disagree Don’t get me wrong Don’t get me anything at all Just play along You make the call I saw something move outside You don’t have place to hide Don’t talk loud someone might hear And all your friends will disappear My lonely room It isn’t lonely anymore I’ll just assume You’ll guard the door Hush  Someone else is here Hush Someone else might hear What is going on Now it’s all so clear to me You see what you want to see Two can play at make-believe But I got tricks right up my sleeve Don’t get me wrong Don’t get me anything at all Just play along You make the call Hush  Someone else is here Hush Someone else might hear Hush  Someone else is here Hush Someone else might hear What is going on What is going on? What is going on? What is going on?

Mystery Man 03:56
If you see me coming Don’t you run and hide If you see me coming Don’t you run and hide ‘Cause I’m your mystery man Oh yes I am If you think you know me You better think again If you think you know me You better think again ‘Cause I’m your mystery man Yes I am If you hear me callin’ Now won’t you come on by If you hear me callin’ Now won’t you come on by 'Cause I’m you mystery man Oh yes I am Yes I am You know I am Yes I am
