Track Name: Up & Down
We go up and down like a boat on a wave,
'Round like a car on a busy motorway,
Always in motion, never the same.

Some days you're happy, other days I'm sad,
I try not to think about what we could have had,
Live for the moment, never the past.
Track Name: Hospital View
Sunny days on Kodachrome,
Memories captured when you were home,
Slide projections on the wall, that's all.

A tall glass of lemonade,
Just doesn't taste the same,
Ever since you went away last fall.

I know you said you'd visit,
But I didn't know,
That there would be so very few.

[int. break]

I know you said you'd visit,
But I didn't know,
That there would be so very few.
And while you're living,
I'm just sitting here,
With this hospital view.
Track Name: Apartment Song
I live in an apartment with a bright orange room,
My kitchen is painted sunshine yellow,
The hallway to my bathroom is minty, minty green,
These are the colours that represent me.

I got a neighbor upstairs, got a cat acts like a dog,
A dog next door that never turns off,
The neighbors on the other side, they just got married,
But I never see them, I wonder how they're doing?

I love my place in life,
It just get a little cold sometimes.

I live across the street from the premiers mistress,
He comes calling in a small, black lincoln,
The girl who lived here before has a photo collection,
I wonder if she'll use it in the next election?

I love my place in life,
It just get a little cold sometimes,
Just gets a little strange at night,
When I turn-out all of the lights.

[int. break]

I love my place in life,
It just get a little cold sometimes,
Just gets a little strange at night,
When I turn-out all of the lights.

So I live in an apartment with a bright orange room,
My kitchen is painted sunshine yellow,
The hallway to my bathroom is minty, minty green,
These are the colours that represent me.
Track Name: Goodbye Little Town
Goodbye little town, I'll miss your scenery,
It's been real, it's been fun, but you no longer hold anything for me.

So goodbye little town, so pretty by the sea,
It wasn't what you said, or anything you did,
This time, it's not you, it's me.

We've had some good times together,
I wouldn't trade them for the world,
Maybe it's just passing bad weather,
But I don't think so.

So goodbye little town, you're nothing but a memory.
