Sarah's Eyes - S. Tofte/B. Warren

Well she jumped across the ocean
To fall in love with her life
Sick and Tired of going through the motions
While everybody made decisions, made excuses, made their way
But she's the one who's leavin' cause she made her mind up not to stay

Well she searched for a story
To tell her friends back home
She fell in love in purgatory
He took her heart, he took her money, took her life and left his seed
She came to the conclusion that her life and her had disagreed

When she looks in Sarah's eyes
She's got a story of her own
What's she going to tell those friends of hers back home?
When she looks in Sarah's eyes
All her problems seem to be gone
She can rest at ease, though her plans turned out all wrong

When she stood on her front porch
With a small souvenier
Father dear slammed the front door
Justified, Disgusted Shouting "One's too many, two's a crowd."
Her complicated, infiltrated, dilapidated soul cried out....

"Somebody, help me please!
Jesus Christ, I'm on my knees."
A self concerning world turned a blind eye
But she summoned the strength to carry on
'Cause this beautiful beautiful girl must learn right from wrong

When she looks in Sarah's eyes
She's got a story of her own
She forgets about those friends of hers back home.
When she looks in Sarah's eyes
All her problems seem to be gone
She can rest at ease, though her plans turned out all wrong

Things That Could've Been - S. Tofte

I saw you sitting on a swing in Gordon Park
We sat and talked about the stars
You pointed slightly to the left of never-land
Said baby, that one’s ours

A place where we can share, and no ones ever there
A world that we can call our own
We’ll stay forver young, We’ll be here all alone
We’re never going home

We walked the town a bit, stopped to ponder it
You never brought your eyes back down
You stayed up in sky, I was afraid to fly
Too scared to make a sound

What about love? What about trust?
What about all the other things we thought would simply come to us?
What about faith? What about romance?
Without any of these things, what made you think we had a chance?

I brought my life to you, my whole inside to you
And you just laid me on a shelf
I tried to say there wasn’t anybody else
I lied to myself

There were opportunities I gave up willingly
To try steal a moment of your time
Watching her downfall parallel to mine
Got me thinking

CHORUS

It isn’t strange to want someone more like me
Not afraid to wear sweatpants get your hair dirty, curl up and watch rerun TV
She came with a smile to place upon my face
You came with a luggage rack, and a lot of empty space

That’s the price I paid, for giving love away
I salted earth that could’ve been
I was never comfortable just calling her a friend
She was more than you ever could’ve been

Connie - S. Tofte

Connie woke up with her eyes frozen shut to her surprise
She thinks it’s sad
It got that bad
Threw on a shirt and walked around, trying not to make a sound
4 in the morning
There wasn’t a warning

Connie looked into the mirror, unrecognizable she feared
This time that she had gone to far
The lights are flashing in her eyes, it’s still the only thing she spies
And now she’s losing her mind

Connie ran into her room, hadn’t a clue what she should do
She grabbed the phone
There was no one home
Thought about the night before, the only image was the floor
Falling down
Still no sound

Connie cried a single tear, the only one that she could spare
The girl had lost herself
Another look back to the mirror, now something that wasn’t there
The blood left stains everywhere

Now Connie don’t know what to do, her friends have left her, so have you
I hope you’re proud
Hope you sleep sound


What did Connie do to you?
What did Connie do to you?
What did Connie do to you?

Took Too Long - S. Tofte

You wanna really get to know me, know my heart
Plead with me, you're gonna have to beg to get me to go that far
See me, you wanna see me from the inside see my scars
Trust me, you wanna see me from without, don't look too hard

'cause I am hiding something precious
It'll make or break my mind
and I'm not ready for this
My conscience tells me

You took too long to make your move
then you let her slip away again
and wait another day

You took too long to say your peace
now you let it rest in agony
you buried it too deep

I try to tell you how I feel, I don't get far
It's not easy, but if it was I'd find a way to make it hard

By the time I've opened up
I feel like I have lied
and all but given up
You're tearing down my pride

Why You Care - S. Tofte

If I left you, would you cry a lot?
Would you have even wondered where I’d gone?
And if I stumbled before I got too far
Would you accuse my will of being flawed?

My walk has turned into a crawl
I don’t know why you care at all

And if I loved you, then I broke your heart
Would you still care to hold me in your arms?
And if above you there are only stars
Where will your dreams be broadcast when I’m gone?

My start has turned into a stall
I don’t know why you care at all

I tend you query your position on this situation
It makes no sense to me
You’re wasting time, you’re wasting effort, and you’re wasting patience
This is all that’s left of me
Why do you have to be
So Goddamn lovely?

My rise has turned into a fall
And my problems overwhelm us all
You didn’t worry, you didn’t care
You stood by me through the fall
I don’t know why you care at all
