Track Name: Tomorrow's Only Tuesday
I'm too, too tired for this Monday
I wish that Sunday had settled in
I'm too, too tired for this workday
For all of these weekdays to start again
My coffee's not helping me anymore
I can't get my feet to move through the door
So hand me my pillow, I'm taking my blanket
I'll just go back to bed

Because Tomorrow's only Tuesday
The time is passing by so slowly
And when the week is over
The week just starts all over and
Tomorrow's only Tuesday. Hey!

I'm too, too tired of this condition
We have of longing for 5 o'clock
I'm too, too tired of repetition
But we have no way to make it stop
My coffee's not helping me anymore
I can't get my feet to move through the door
Now, only my pillow can hold all my dreams
I might as well go back to bed

Because Tomorrow's only Tuesday
The time is passing by so slowly
And when the week is over
The week just starts all over and
Tomorrow's only Tuesday. Hey!

We ride through each day waiting
Just to get in line for the next
All because the future
Makes better dreams than does the past

I’m too, too tired; I’m too, too tired; I’m too, too tired
I’m too, too tired; I’m too, too tired; I’m too, too tired

Because Tomorrow's only Tuesday
The time is passing by so slowly
And when the week is over
The week just starts all over and
Tomorrow's only Tuesday
Track Name: Tell Me What It's like
There's a girl I knew
From the time that I was two to twenty-four
She was coolheaded, bighearted
Never asked, but always wanted more
She was up for every nomination
Loved by all her congregation
Always told her voice was angel's song
She was sweet and clever
She knew how to do it better
all along

Can you catch a whisper here, a whisper there? It's so unfair
Oh, can you catch a whisper as she pulls her skinny fingers through her hair?

She said "tell me what it's like to fall in love
I've been thinking and it just doesn't add up
You lose your logic to the fervor
Of your passions as they further
The intentions we reserve for the insane;
I prefer my solitary counterpane"

There's a boy I saw
Who would hang on every heart that passed him by
He was bowled over, blindsided
Every time a new one caught his eye
He was all romance and tragedy
He reminisced so longingly
But time and time again, he'd cry defeat
He was smooth and smitten
With each pretty little kitten
He would meet

Can you catch a whisper here, a whisper there? It's so unfair
Oh, can you catch a whisper as he pulls his skinny fingers through his hair?

He said "tell me what it's like to fall in love
'Cause it sounds like something I'd like something of
You lose your logic to the fervor
Of your passions as they further
The intentions we consider somewhat touched;
I don't know if I could ever get enough"

Tell me what it's like to fall in love
I've been thinking and it just doesn't add up
You lose your logic to the fervor
Of your passions as they further
The intentions we consider somewhat touched
I don't know if I could ever get enough
I don't know if it could ever be enough
Track Name: Addicted
I'm addicted to your smile
The way your eyes mash at the edges
Been away from it a while
Sense myself becoming restless

I can't stand to be apart from you, my dear, my dear
Mine's a lonely, lonely heart without you near, without you near

I'm addicted to your face
The way it lights up when it sees me
Not to mention your caress
Your hands and arms when they are near me

I can't stand to be apart from you, my dear, my dear
Mine's a lonely, lonely heart without you near, without you near

I need you like coffee in the morning,
I'm addicted to you, darling,
And I can't put you down
I'm so glad to have you here so close
You know I'll make the most of having you around

I'm addicted to your face
The way it lights up when it sees me
Not to mention your caress
Your hands and arms when they are near me

I can't stand to be apart from you, my dear, my dear
Mine's a lonely, lonely heart without you near, without you near
Track Name: The Magic
Chapter one, the story's just begun
They call it fake, but I'm fixed on your charms
All well and good, it played out like it should
Till I found myself safe in your arms
I can see it now,
Honey we are bound
To seal it with a vow,
Oh babe, they'll all come around soon
The sparkle in your eyes
They say it's a disguise
But they're just sounding false alarms

Chapter two, a picture perfect view
But I'm catching on to the cracks in the hall
Your eyes go blank when I'm just being frank
While I explain the way it's starting to fall
You build your brew
In the shelter of your room
In a castle too new
To become consumed with all that
Well I suppose that I
I should've known but I
Was hoping I could have it all

But the magic just left one day
It sensed the mood and it got a little afraid
Decided to pack it's bags
And find a friendlier place to stay
Well, I bet it was the way
I said goodbye

I said goodbye

I can't keep up with your incantations
Their sweet sensations are starting to fade
While I fade, you berate
My inclination to disbelieve
Though your spell is o'er, dear,
I can't ignore how we had it made
An impermanent win;
Now, baby, I'm drinking in
This sense of reprieve
Reprieve

Oh, the magic just left one day
It sensed the mood and it got a little afraid
Decided to pack it's bags
And find a friendlier place to stay

Well, I bet it was the way
I said goodbye
