Track Name: Hand Me My Ticket
When you walk up the hill you will see
as you look down on every busy street
thousands of faces smiling all downtown
but I guarantee I’m not in that count

I’m telling you I once was happy here
but it seems to me there’s not much to achieve
I’m one of those folks who have turned all bitter
just hand me my ticket and I’ll leave

chorus:
Mr. Bus Driver
Please take me far away
I don’t wanna sink like a rock in a lake
I gotta get out of this place

If the concert time says eight on the bill
nothing will begin before ten
for so many people this gives them a thrill
I’m certainly not one of them

I’m telling you I once was happy here
but it seems to me that something has gone wrong
I’m one of those folks who have turned all bitter
just hand me my ticket and I’m gone

(chorus)
Track Name: Loneliest Vacation
I can see you every time I close my eyes
I can feel that empty space by my side
And I miss you every night that I sleep alone
And I count the days until I come back home

chorus:
If I could know the time my train arrives at the station
Would you be there to welcome me home
This is the loneliest vacation I have known

Everyone’s been asking me why I look sad
I just want to lay here alone in the pitch-black
I don’t want to hear your voice on my cell phone
I just want to hold you tight when I get home

(chorus)
Track Name: Write A Big Tune
My mother always told me that to find something you love
you have to listen closely to your heart
when I started writing songs at the age of five
I knew that it was only just the start

Working in the morning, and by the afternoon
mother would be listening with pride
she always replied:
“one day you'll have to write a big tune."

My mother always told me how a dream needs discipline
and passion doesn’t burn in everyone
If you feel the fire, then your journey has begun
but you’ll need to walk before you run

Melodies would linger, like that number 5 perfume
but disappear before they crystallize
My mother would advise:
“one day you’ll have to write a big tune."

chorus:
She said: “go write a big tune,
play it for me in a day or two,
you’ll have to write a melody
that sticks to me like glue
if you want to write a big tune.”

My mother always told me that fame don't mean a thing
and don’t let money be your biggest guide
Every time you write a song, do your work with pride
even if the cheque never arrives

Now my only dream, when I'm heading to the bank,
Paying bills long overdue,
Is to pick up my guitar
And go write a big tune.

(chorus)
Track Name: Easy To Forget
She never asked for very much
she spoke so softly to me
she had the sweetest touch
a smile was always guaranteed

I never saw her shed a tear
She never said she was upset
She was so easy to love
and now so easy to forget

I know that I’m a strong one
My lonesome thoughts have gone away
I’m not writing her a song to say:
I think about you all day long

I may have hurt her precious heart
But I’m not dying with regret
She was so easy to love
and now so easy to forget
Track Name: With A Serenade
Say goodbye to the twilight
as we drive away from here
Good thing no one saw me take that left turn
I just want to disappear

though I packed all my gear and I’m riding like a bandit out of town
I can’t help but think at the end of this road, there’s another round

chorus:
Have I come to lift my final latch
or will I reach a golden age
bite the dust ‘cause each city looks the same
or keep on going with a serenade

Say goodbye to the moonlight
as we reach another town
just enough time to fill up at the station
and let the locals stare me down

when I turn myself in, guilty like a bandit in this town
I can’t help but think at the end of this stay, there’s another round

(chorus)

Say goodbye to this sunrise
It’ll be back in the spring
Just in time before the money’s running out
I’ll be on that road again

though I won’t feel that thrill when I ride like a bandit into town
I can’t help but think at the end of this sting, there’s another round

(chorus)
Track Name: If I Had Known
(Chris)
If I had known everything
About where you had been
I wouldn't be lying here in my tears
I would have known you're innocent
And I would have had a brain
Not to blame you instead of my fears

But now you left, you said this time for good
I'm just gonna wait here by the phone
Maybe you will call to tell me I'm a fool
And I'll start begging you to come back home

Ooh, is this the end?
I won't presume things again

(Sarah)
If I had left you a note
Saying "out with my friends"
Would you have believed me then?
I should have known that first time
And I'm only to blame
For thinking that one day you would change

But now I'm gone, this time for good
I’m not gonna wait here by my phone
If you were to call, I won’t be a fool
And listen while you beg me to come back home

Ooh, this is the end
I won't presume you can change

(Chris & Sarah)
Ooh, this is the end
I won't presume things again
