Track Name: You Don't Know Me
You don’t know me like you think you do

So, you’ve got yourself a new boyfriend
So, you’re so in love did you wait for ours to end?
Got it all figured out
You know my mind beyond a doubt

You don’t know me like you think you do

So, you think I’m running out of time
So, you think I’m starting to lose my mind
Got it all figured out
You know my mind beyond a doubt

You don’t know me like you think you do
Track Name: Dreaming
In the morning when the sun is shining
another day this world's surving
I can feel it coming, the sun is risisng

In the evening when the sun is sinking
another day gone by drinking
I can feel it coming, the sun is sinking
The sun is sinking

I had a dream, saw the world united
no one starving and no one fighting
but there's nothing I can do
when I'm dreaming, I guess I'm dreaming
Track Name: Going to See Lou
Get out of my way
I had a very bad day
And if you ask me one more time
Well, you know just what I’d say
Now I’m going to the man who knows what to do
I’m going to see Lou

Don’t you ever ask my woman
She just doesn’t understand
When I’m feeling this low down
Well, it’s time to see the man
And now I’m going to the man who knows what to do
I’m going to see Lou

You bring the papers and I’ll bring the money
‘Cuz if you ain’t got dough, Lou don’t talk to you honey
Hurry up, I just can’t wait, play it cool and don’t be late
No, don’t be late

Ask anyone in my band
They all know just what I mean
When we start to lose the groove
Time to get some California green
Now I’m going to the man who knows what to do
I’m going to see Lou
Track Name: Star
The walls are closing in
looks like his id has done it again
Turn back his feelings has turned day into night
You want to get it right, well keep your eye on the prize
There ain’t no such thing as true love
Just mutual compromise and self-deception

There you are, you’re the loneliest star

Empty, broke to the bone
Paying the price for wanting to be all alone
Abandoning chase before the thrill of the kill
I wonder if you will ever look past your windowsill
You could see the world go ‘round
If it was only standing still for you right now

There you are, you’re the loneliest star
Track Name: Hollywood
Gather ‘round, hear me now
there’s something I must confess
All the guys will know what I’m talking about
and the girls can guess the rest
Anybody needs some body
or at least that’s how the story goes
Where you end up when that ride is over
I don’t thnk that anybody knows
How’d I end up so low
when all I want to do is fly
I’m so good at getting in trouble, baby
I don’t even have to try
And the blues all say they know me
but I act like I don’t care
I’m well acquainted with loneliness
and good friends of despair
Well, I’ve been licked and I’ve been kicked
and I’ve been tossed around a bit
I’m feeling like a parking meter
with the shit kicked out of it
And if in the movies the loser always wins well
Hollywood, where you been?

Now I’ve been running ‘round, losing ground
been down since I don’t know when
Just been trying to come up even
ever since that I was ten
When I became a paperboy
I wore a hole in the bottoms of my shoes
Making a small town honest living
on the big bad country’s news
How’d I end up all alone
when there’s always a girl around
Why did it take me ten long years
to put just one little girl down
I always say good things are coming
and good things take a while
But when I get dressed up to go out on the town
I’m two years out of style
Well, it’s a fact that I can act
because I had to learn to act my age
I’m the classic tragic hero
and the whole world is my stage
And if in the movies the loser always wins well
Hollywood, where you been?
