Track Name: Better With You
BETTER WITH YOU
Written By: Chris Assaad

Darlin’, I’ve got something to tell you
I was running all along.
I know there’s nothing I can say or do
To make up for doing you wrong

Now that you’re gone,
I can see the other side.
Looks like the grass over there’s
A little greener than mine.

Woman, deep down I know even though I’ve been good
Things are better with you
Just because I don’t show it all the time doesn’t mean
I don’t believe that it’s true

Yeah, it’s true, things are better with you.
Remember when you told me you loved me
For the very first time.
You whispered it to me so softly
And then you said goodbye

I knew you were leaving
So I tried to avoid the fall.
I guess it’s better to have loved and lost
Than to never have loved at all.

Woman, deep down I know even though I’ve been good
Things are better with you.
Just because I don’t show it all the time doesn’t mean
I don’t believe that it’s true.

Yeah, it’s true, when I’m with you
The whole world feels like it’s new
And I know why you had to leave
But all I’m asking is darlin’ please, plesase believe.

Woman, deep down I know even though I’ve been good
Things are better with you.
Just because I don’t show it all the time doesn’t mean
I don’t believe that it’s true.

Yeah it’s true, deep down I know
Things are better with you,
Yeah it’s true, deep down I know,
Things are better with you.
Track Name: Into The Light
INTO THE LIGHT:

I used to be afraid of the dark
But now I know it’s not so hard
To see the light, it’s all around
So I’ll be lookin’ out when you’re lookin’ down.

Brother, if you need a helping hand
Someone you can call to take a stand
I’ll be there by your side
As you walk out of the darkness
Into the light.

Don’t let anyone tell you it’s too late
To get where you’re going, to make a change.
You’re not alone,
I’m right here with you
And there’s so many of us,
Just trying to make our dreams come true.

Sister, if you need a helping hand
Someone you can call to take a stand
I’ll be there by your side
As you walk out of the darkness
Into the light.

Oh… You know the sky is big enough for all the stars
I don’t mind sharing the light with you
And maybe we could even learn a thing or two
I know I’m at my best when I’m with you.

Brother if you need a helping hand
Someone you can call to take a stand
I’ll be there by your side
As you walk out of the darkness

Sister if you need a helping hand
You know I’ll be there to take a stand
As you walk into the light.

Into the light…(and I’ll be there).
Into the light…(and I’ll be there).
Oh…(and I’ll be there)
As you walk.

Just call on me if you need a hand…(and I’ll be there).
Oh into the light…(and I’ll be there).
Oh yeah…(and I’ll be there)
As you walk.
Track Name: Tomorrow
TOMORROW

Tomorrow I will go to heaven I will go
To heaven I will go tomorrow.
And I will change all my ways I will change.
I will change tomorrow.

Way deep down I can feel it in my soul
That every day’s a blessing and my time will come to go.
So for now I will do all that I can
To make the most of every moment, be a better man.

We don’t know just what we’ve got until it’s gone
And then it’s gone.

Tomorrow I will go to heaven I will go
To heaven I will go tomorrow.
And I will change all my ways I will change.
I will change tomorrow.

My brothers and my sisters
Please come with us.
We can get there together
If we start love.

We don’t know just what we’ve got until it’s gone
And then it’s gone.
We don’t know just what we’ve got until it’s gone
And then it’s gone.

Tomorrow I will go to heaven I will go
To heaven I will go tomorrow.
And I will change all my ways I will change.
I will change tomorrow.

Tomorrow I will go to heaven I will go
To heaven tomorrow.
And I will change, oh my ways I will change.
I will change tomorrow.

Tomorrow I will go to heaven I will go…(to heaven I will go)
To heaven I will go tomorrow…(tomorrow)
And I will change all my ways I will change…(I will change)
I will change tomorrow….(change tomorrow)
Track Name: Turn It Around
TURN IT AROUND

I wonder how much money there would be
If we gave every penny that we didn’t need
And bought food for the hungry
Imagine how many we could feed.

I wonder how many years it will take
For the earth to heal from our mistakes.
And how much longer we would have
If we lived every day like our last.

So what are we gonna do now?
We’ve dug a hole and now we’ve got to get out.
So what are we gonna do now?

Every day they say it’s getting worse
Try to scare us with their terror and their fancy words.
Every day while they let the oil run
Into the water that our children will be drinking from.

It’s more fuel for the fire,
I’ve got this burning desire.

So what are we gonna do now?
We’ve dug a hole and now we’ve got to get out.
So what are we gonna do now?
We’re the only ones who can turn it around.

Turn it around. Turn it around.
Turn it around. Turn it around.

So what are we gonna do now?
We’ve dug a hole and now we’ve got to get out.

So what are we gonna do now?
We’re the only ones who can turn it around .
Track Name: Waiting
WAITING

Oh dear friend, it’s been so long since you left
I’ve tried and I’ve tried letting go.
The last thing you said has lived me in my head
Now I’m waiting for you to come home.
Waiting for you to come home.

I’ve been waiting
Hoping you’d knock at my door
I’ve been waiting
I wish it could be like before…

So I’m waiting,
Waiting for you to come home.

The ones you love will hurt you the most
I know that I let you down.
I acted the fool and got the worst out of you
And now I’m waiting for you to come around.
Waiting for you to come around.

I’ve been waiting
Hoping you’d knock at my door
I’ve been waiting
I wish it could be like before…

So I’m waiting for you to forgive me
I know I was wrong, was blind but now I see
That what we’ve been through together we’ll make us stonger.
But if you’re not feeling better, I’ll just wait longer
For you to come home.

I’ll be waiting
Hoping you’ll knock at my door
I’ll be waiting
I wish it could be like before…
So I’m waiting,
Waiting for you to come home.

Oh I’m waiting,
I’m waiting for you to come home.
Come home.
Track Name: Last Breath
LAST BREATH

Neighbour, brother,
Do you need a hand?
I will do whatever I can.
I’ve got plenty more to spare
Even though I’m over here
And you’re over there.

I need your help
I’m on shaky ground.
Won’t you rescue me
Before my time runs out.
I’m on my last breath,
Don’t let me down.

Sister, mother,
What can I do
To make this place a littler safer for you?
And if you love me too,
Won’t you let me rest my head
A minute here with you?

Just a little help, please
I’m breakin’ down.
Won’t you rescue me,
Before my time runs out
I’m on my last breath,
Don’t let me down.

So let us be one
And let Thy will be done
And if we should fall
Send someone to pick us up.

I need your help
Don’t forsake me now.
Won’t you rescue me
Before my time runs out.
I’m on my last breath
I’m on my last breath
I’m on my last breath
