Banana Man

He might look just a little bit kooky
But he thinks thatís okay
He needs a job to pay of his mortgage and his chevrolet
If tricks you want then he ainít your person
All he does is stand
Except the times when he is running from the policeman

Banana Man
1, 2, 3

Iím Banana Man
Dance with me

It might surprise you he went to college
And got his degree
Itís hard to find a job with a major in plant psychology
His identity he tries to keep secret
But not because heís great
Cause the girls will just keep on laughing and heíll never get a date

Cliche

What they say never really mattered to me
I've been wrong
Open the door, time to move on
What has changed
Same old story with a new name
I'm not scared I've been here before

I guess I thought you'd be there I swear this
This is the last time that I close my eyes to it
Never again will we be what we were
Maybe I'll just walk away

Time thrown away
I didn't use it anyway
Been here for so long
Now it's time to move on
Read between the lines
I can't make up my mind
Was this what we planned

I guess I thought you'd be there I swear this
This is the last time that I close my eyes to it
Never again will we be what we were
Maybe I'll just walk away

Mercury falls forgot how much I hate the fall
Still sitting by the phone I hope that you don't call
It's alright now we'll make it somehow
You'd think we'd learned by now
Well, I guess it goes to show
You're the answer to all my prayers, I swear it

This is the last time that I close my eyes to it
Never again will we be what we were
Maybe I'll just walk away

Regrets

As I stand here and wait for you
You don't know how I feel
Guess I'm too shy to let you know
My heart's in control
This time I know everything will be okay
I don't know what you would think
I don't know what to expect

No matter what happens you will be my friend
I'm not going to mess this up
No matter what happens you will be my friend
I'm not going to mess this up
I don't want to end with regrets

I can't stop thinking of you
Can't get you out of my thoughts
Can't concentrate, I'm losing my head over a girl
I know I'll always love you
I wish that you felt the same

No matter what happens you will be my friend
I'm not going to mess this up
No matter what happens you will be my friend
I'm not going to mess this up
I don't want to end with regrets

I don't know what you would think
I don't know what to expect
No matter what happens you will be my friend
I'm not going to mess this up
No matter what happens you will be my friend
I'm not going to mess this up
I don't want to end with regrets

Rusty

In this room it's cold and dark
It feels like me, I'm far from home
In this town there is no one
The lamp is low, when can I go home
All I can do is hold onto what I have

Why did it change
I liked how it was
I'm without you, the world spins without me
Without your smile it takes a while
Nothing has changed, I wish you were here with me

I can't wait until the next time
That you'll be here by my side
Is there anything I can do
Give me a call, I love you
All I can do is hold on to what I have

Why did it change
I like it how it was
I'm without you, the world spins without me
Without your smile it takes a while
Nothing has changed, I wish you were here with me

Why did it change
I like it how it was
I'm without you, the world spins without me
Without your smile it takes a while
I miss you, I wish you were here with me

Joe's Sick

So what if you don't like me
Underneath our skin we still bleed
I can deal with your sarcasm
It takes more that that to put me under your thumb

You think I'll follow you down
I'm not as dumb as you think
You think I'll follow you down
You'll never see me break

You must think that you are better
Just accept that we are all the same
What do I do to make you hate me
It doesn't matter, I'll turn the other cheek

You think I'll follow you down
I'm not as dumb as you think
You think I'll follow you down
You'll never see me break

I'm not as dumb as you think
I won't make the same mistakes you have
Feeble minded, black hearted
Your widened mouth and simple ideals

Proved Me Wrong

A softer kind of smile
A star that holds your stare
Everything I've ever know just blew up in the air
Don't you hate it when
Every love song makes sense to you
And time away breaks your heart in two
I really hate it now
They should have taught us this in school
I really thought I was so cool
You proved me wrong again

I can't wait till the next time I see you

It's getting hard to sleep at night
I'll pretend that it's alright
It doesn't feel that way
By now you probably hate this song
It's probably best that it's not long
I guess you proved me wrong

I can't wait till the next time I see you

Father Son Picnic

To learn from past mistakes
To crawl out of the hole I dug myself
I should have learned by now, I can't do it

And the time it flies right past me now
I pray that You would show me how
You're the only one
You're my Father, I'm your son
And with Your love, I'm sure it won't be long

All I ever wanted was to fell as though You cared
But as time has shown I see we're all to scared

And the time it flies right past me now
I pray that You would show me how
You're the only one
You're my Father, I'm your son
And with Your love, I'm sure it won't be long

Faith in human being never go me anywhere
And here I stand with only You
Love is what you showed me
The only time I ever felt love
Is when You were standing next to me

Losing Sight

Sorry it turned out like this
I guess it's time for us to take our own separate ways
All I can do is pray that you would make the right decisions
And never lose sight of what is real

All the time I wonder why it turned out like this
It doesn't matter it's in God's hands

You're losing your grip on reality
You don't know what's real
And what it really in your head
You haven't learned, you never will
Unless you let God do what He wants
And not what you want to do

All the time I wonder why it turned out like this
It doesn't matter it's in God's hands

Fall

Lord I'm distracted by so many things of the world
My eyes always stray from You
But You are always watching over me

I don't know how you could stand having me as Your son
I'm always so selfish and You are always so kind
Lord, You're always there for me
Without You I don't know what I would do
You're always there for me
Without You I don't know what I would do

When everything is going well
I rarely stop and thank You
But when nothing is going right
I stop and complain to You

I don't know how you could stand having me as Your son
I'm always so selfish and You are always so kind
Lord, You're always there for me
Without You I don't know what I would do
You're always there for me
Without You I don't know what I would do

Don't let me
Don't let me fall

Walk Out

You cannot break me
How far this takes me
My mind is racing as I play this song
Will you walk out
This song is played out
This thing I'm facing will not go quietly

Place to place, I see your face
Keep me centered now
Need some sleep
Your song I keep deep within my heart

Tomorrow's at stake
But this show won't make
My love wander from my promises
I feel better now
And I will carry this song until we are done

Place to place, I see your face
Keep me centered now
Need some sleep
Your song I keep deep within my heart

Home now, nothing's better
With you forever, it doesn't seem long enough

Bounce

You're stuck where you fell
You're past comes back to haunt you
Things you thought you'd learned
Again and again didn't fit well inside your head
The victim of a crime of the mind
To heal it will take more than time
All I can do is pray that you
Would feel more like you did yesterday

They don't know you like I do
They never even tried to

You're misunderstood
You're feeling all left out
I see the terrible norm is tearing you apart
Now what can you do
It's time to face the truth
That life is just a tour and you're along for the ride

Last

She holds his hand and stares off into space
All she knows now is how much things can change
It's now her fault, it's not her, no one is to blame
It's just that regret has a way of taunting you

I guess it's hard to hide the past
The way she struggles to make it last
I want to share all I have with you
Would it change a thing if I was with you
A broken heart, too much has passed
I hope someday that something lasts

Her head hangs low, a tear is in her eye
It's now the first time someone has make her cry
Up goes a wall that no one can climb
The only way in or out is through the heart
I guess it's hard to hide the past
The way she struggles to make it last
I want to share all I have with you
Would it change a thing if I was with you
A broken heart, too much has passed
I hope someday that something lasts

Take your time, don't you rush a thing
I'll be here waiting for you
Never let you down again

I wanna share all I have with you
Would it change a thing if I was with you
A broken heart, too much has passed
I hope someday that something lasts
