Track Name: Déjà Vu (Solo Acoustic)
I feel I’ve been here before
Staring calmly at the open door
I knew you’d be back this way
You spoke softly, said you couldn’t stay

You’d hoped to find me a changed man
I know I haven’t; please understand
It’s in the way you move me
Running in circles, and I can’t break free

I can feel it coming ‘round again
Love begins just to end again
Around and around, here we go again
Love begins just to end again

In every path there comes a time
When past and present meet and roads divide
Which way are you gonna go
Left or right, high or low

When did you know
That this was the end
And how can I go
When we were just beginning
To end …again

I can feel it comin’ down again
Love begins just to end again
Against the tide it’s sink or swim again
Love begins just to end again
Begins …to end …(here we go) again
Track Name: Secondhand (Solo Acoustic)
I’ve been searching, can’t seem to find my way
Seems the nights get darker each and every day
This time I’ve wandered too far from home
Friends all around me, but I feel alone

I feel lost and broken, bent out of place
Shall I stay, or do you need some space
Different means all lead to the same end
How can we even try to pretend

I need a secondhand heart
Only slightly ripped apart
I need someone who will always be around
Unrequited from the start
Feel I was born to play the part
Give me someone who will never let me down

Sure I don’t miss what was missing
But oh how I miss kissing you (of course I do)
I miss your lips, your hips, your thighs
Miss the sparkle of your eyes
I know it’s gone now but I don’t know why
How did this become of me
How was I too blind to see
That the one you loved was no longer me
Was my heart in your hands just a pawn
Feelings faded like the night at dawn
Where was it that we went wrong
How am I supposed to heal
When I don’t know what it is I feel
Was it really ever real
I know kindness is contagious
So come on be courageous
Give your love away

With a secondhand heart
Only slightly ripped apart
Gotta somehow get my feet back on the ground
Unrequited from the start
No one’s born to play that part
Just find someone who will never let you down
Don’t let me down
Track Name: Unspoken (Solo Acoustic)
She’s weighed down by the colors of the wind
A bird so afraid to fly, regretful of her sins
She thinks of what she’s done, all she can’t undo
“I can’t say these things (she says), not to you”

Words… without eyes to illustrate
Words… nor voice to communicate
Words… telling a story she’s told a thousand times in silence

Her fingers are stained with unspoken fears
She struggles to see the page through the falling tears
Unformed thoughts dance upon her tongue
The hurt’s not over yet, the healing has just begun in

Words… without eyes to illustrate
Words… nor voice to communicate
Words… telling a story she’s told a thousand times…

Words… without eyes to illustrate
Words… why can’t you communicate in
Words… a story you’ve told a thousand times
Track Name: In Dreams (Solo Acoustic)
Still clinging to a past
Now called into question
Rejection (of affection)
More times than I care to mention

I’m so tired of this loneliness
This aching need that is never met
It’s been so long and I’ve hurt so much
Feel small and ugly and out of touch

Will I know
When it’s really happening again
Will it show
If it is real or just pretend

Wounds are weeping
Beneath a bruised and blackened sky
Like a broken bone (never set right)
A broken heart lingers like an endless night

Seems by now there should be a cure
A better way to endure
To put together what’s been torn apart
How I wish I could change your heart

You know I don’t believe in regret
Just trying to remember to forget
Taking each day as it comes
No looking back, now I’m moving on

But will I know
When it’s really happening
Will it show
Might I mistake it for a dream

Will I know
When it’s really happening again
Will It show
If it is real or just pretend
