    WATCH ME NOW

    Give me a pencil, pad and a guitar
    Chances are that I'll go far
    You should have believed me
    I'll do anything that you can do
    Probably better than you do (it)
    And you thought I couldn't

     

    Watch Me Now

     

    You show off
    I won't continue to speak soft
    Now I'm making a spinoff
    And I'll see you from the...
    Top's down, bottom's up now it's twisted
    Couldn't fight but resisted
    And I'm better off so...

     

    Watch Me Now

    NEW YEAR'S EVE

    Fireworks outside, sitting on the basement floor
    It's almost 12 o'clock, and the New Year's at the door
    Just another day, trying to make it right
    But it's all good, because I'm with you here tonight

     

    Another year gone
    Another sad song
    Another chance to try to want to be
    A new me

     

    Wake up, to find another day
    Turns out, everything's the same way
    I didn't mean to hurt you, I won't do it again
    It wasn't my intention, you were my best friend

     

    When will you realize
    How quickly time flies?
    When will you see?
    Oh brother when will you see
    The real me?

     

    On New Year's Eve

     

    Another year gone
    Another sad song
    Another chance to try to want to be...
    A new me

    YOU MIGHT BE

    Many have gone
    But through all our ups and downs we've carried on
    Approaching new ground
    Like explorers on a sea of chance unbound

     

    You might be
    My island in the sea

     

    It's times like these
    When you start to see the forest for the trees
    Though the leaves will fall
    The branches keep the forest standing tall

     

    You might be
    My island in the sea

     

    The future has demands
    So we're gonna keep this tight between our hands
    Stay close to me
    And hold me as we float upon that sea

     

    You might be
    My island in the sea

    SARAJEVO (OOH LA LA)

    Ooh la la
    I'm watching you dance
    Ooh la la
    In those bright yellow pants

     

    Why, oh why
    Why are you here?
    Why, oh why
    It's unclear

     

    But I want to go home
    Down the long dusty road
    And I gotta run
    Because I'm not having fun

     

    I've been out here so long
    Nothing's strange anymore
    And you gave me this song
    But I've heard it before

     

    If I bought you a whiskey
    Would you drink it with me?
    Can we start with a whiskey?
    There's a bar down the street

     

    And I want to go home
    Down the long dusty road
    And I gotta run
    Because I'm not having fun

     

    Ooh la la

    SPENDING THE NIGHT ALONE

    Something tells me I should sleep
    But my thoughts keep me up
    Late at night with TV glaring
    I've been in this rut

     

    When I dream, I can almost feel you
    Laying next to me
    But when I wake, it's a distant memory
    And no one's there, but me
    So I don't sleep
    I'm spending the night alone

     

    It's been days since you have left me
    But my pain endures
    I've found smiles in empty bottles
    None compare to yours

     

    When I dream, I can almost feel you
    Laying next to me
    But when I wake, it's a distant memory
    And no one's there, but me

     

    When I dream, I can almost feel you
    Like it used to be
    But when I wake, it's a distant memory
    And no one's there, but me
    So I don't sleep
    I'm spending the night alone
    No I can't sleep

    MOTHER'S DAY

    Maybe I got into trouble
    Maybe I went my own way
    Maybe I was a disappointment
    Maybe there's nothing left to say

     

    But you know me
    And you showed me
    What it means to be a man
    And you loved me
    And you hugged me
    When life didn't go to plan

     

    You know me all too well
    You know me better than I know myself
    Now I'm out here on my own
    But I know that I will always have a home

     

    You know me
    And you showed me
    What it means to be a man
    And you loved me
    And you hugged me
    When life didn't go to plan

     

    Mom

     

    And you know me
    And you showed me
    What it means to be a man
    And you loved me
    And you hugged me
    When life didn't go to plan

     

    And I praise you for the days you
    Spent your life with me
    Gave direction
    Introspection
    You're the best in me

    ALL I HAVE

    They say you don't know what you have until it's gone
    But I knew what I had all along
    10,000 miles are between us
    And all I have is this song

     

    I miss your body laying next to me at night
    The cold outside the blanket masked by our delight
    The winter's colder when we fight so...
    Let's talk it out and make things right

     

    Don't let the sadness mask the good times
    We'll have gladness in our lifetime
    In my dreams it's bright and clear, oh

    DRINK ALONE

    Pass me a Miller, pass me a Stone
    You might have a problem
    They said on the phone
    But they didn't care to come to my home
    So I sat and cried as I drank alone

     

    Pass me the bubbler, pass me the joint
    They said to cut back
    I didn't see the point
    Couldn't they see I needed a friend?
    They wouldn't realize until the end

     

    Pass me a codeine, pass me a perc
    Just another pill-popping, rich Jersey jerk

     

    Pass me the mirror, pass me the straw
    No friends complain now
    Don't see them no more
    Another long night again lonely ends
    But sleeping is easier without any friends

     

    Pass me the needle, pass me the dope
    That night I went to bed... I never awoke

     

    Pass me a Miller, pass me a Stone

    Is it a problem that I drink alone?
