Track Name: Be Good
I hear the way that you talk to yourself & the things that you say you don't mean
I've seen the way that you stress yourself out waiting till the last minute with things

You wouldn't do those things to me
Why should you treat you differently?

Be good to yourself
Look after your health
And treat yourself kind
Like somebody else
Be good to yourself

I know the way that you beat yourself up with the worry you're carrying deep
You are the prisoner of all of your thoughts and they keep you from seeing your dreams

You wouldn't do those things to me
Why should you treat you differently?

Be good to yourself
Look after your health
And treat yourself kind
Like somebody else
Be good to yourself

What would you do if you knew that you couldn't fail?
You'd spend a lot less time trying to convince yourself
That you were worth a damn like everybody else
You'd see that you are if you'd only be good to yourself
Track Name: Honey Honey
It makes so much sense
You stole my attention love
Took my heart while I was sleeping said
You’re a guy who’s well worth keeping you

Tore my defenses down
Went and got me all distracted then
Kissed my mouth so I reacted said ooh

Girl you must think you’re smooth
You’ve been playing some kind of game with me
You must think it’s all the same to me too

But I don’t know what to do
You’re so highly unpredictable
Yet somehow we are so true

Oh Oh, honey honey
We’re so funny funny
We’re so common sense
In spite of contradictions

Oh oh, baby baby
This is more than maybe
We’re so obvious
It makes the night seem brighter
With the two of us here

Hey, that’s the sound
Whenever you’re around
My tongue gets tied my words suppressed
And my heart starts beating through my chest, you

You turn me upside down
So I can’t tell my left from right, but
With you here’s it’s all alright

Oh Oh, honey honey
We’re so funny funny
We’re so common sense
In spite of contradictions

Oh oh, baby baby
This is more than maybe
We’re so obvious
It makes the night seem brighter
With the two of us here

Do you believe in love
Then wish on stars above
That you and I are everything
That we've been dreaming of
Track Name: Oy Vey
I'm stammering on about you
To everyone I meet how you're the girl for me
I couldn't go on without you
And even if I tried, I'd be so incomplete
You're my heartbeat

Babe, oy vey, well I don't know what to say
Cause all the words in the world could never quite convey
That you're more important to me than anyone that I adore
Significantly more

We're having a conversation
Like the way the people talk and the kind of clothes we wear
Our vivid imaginations
We sit and laugh and talk while everybody stares
But we don't care

Babe, oy vey, well I don't know what to say
Cause all the words in the world could never quite convey
That you're more a scholar to me
Than anyone that I respect
Even my brother Jack

I'm laying in bed beside you
Just thinking about the past, how we grew up way to fast
But you were the one that I knew
Would be with me all along, our love would always last
And time just passed

Babe, oy vey, well I don't know what to say
Cause all the words in the world could never quite convey
That you're more a lover to me
Than anybody else's dream
You know what I mean
Track Name: It's Gonna Be
Wake up each morning
Roll out of bed, what a scene
Turn that alarm off
And start my morning routine
Jump in the shower
Oh what a pleasant affair
Rinse off and dry up
And find an outfit to wear

Look out the window
And tell me what do I see
A million faces
All people looking at me
Their expectations
Cannot compete with my dreams
Just hang around me
You're gonna see what I mean

It's gonna be, honey
It's gonna be our year
You're gonna see, honey
I've never been so clear
Believe you me, honey
There's not a thing 'round here
That's keeping me, honey
From making this our year

Last night I woke up
I had a dream that I'd be
Under the spotlight
My name up on the marquee
I've never seen it
But I know just how it feels
Cause I believe it
And that's what's keeping it real

It's gonna be, honey
It's gonna be our year
You're gonna see, honey
I've never been so clear
Believe you me, honey
There's not a thing 'round here
That's keeping me, honey
From making this our year
Track Name: Magical
It's begun
Our worlds have collided and the
And the sun
Came right out beside them to
Illuminate the colors that we had created when we were elated
And when we're with each other, I'm under your spell girl I wanted to tell you

It's magical this evening
The way you've got me singing
You've got me still believing oh it's magical

You came along
And my world started moving so I
Wrote a song
For you just to prove that I am
Girl I'm captivated by everything that you do and I
Wanna spend my whole life just stuck in this moment forever with you

It's magical this evening
The way you've got me singing
You've got me still believing oh it's magical

And from my feet to the ceiling
I get the ultimate feeling
It's magical, it's magical

It's magical this evening
The way my heart is beating
You've got me still believing oh it's magical

Wah, wah ba bah, wah ba bah, wah ba bah, ba da da
