Track Name: One Last Time
Verse 1:
It's snowing outside, I'm going for a ride
I only want to see you one last time
It's really white out there, I'm about to cut my hair
Symbolizing love that's lost and found

Chorus:
Baby, I know you're out there
Baby, I know you care

Verse 2:
So it's all that I can do, to smile and say, "I love you"
And hop a plane to see you one last time
You said, "You're welcome here," you're afraid to lose me, dear
'Cause you'll say, "Stay," and I will say, "Goodbye"

Chorus:
Baby, I know you're out there
Baby, I know you care

Bridge:
I really wish I loved you more than that
I really wish I wouldn't leave you flat
But I'm a girl, and girlie's got to live
You've got way more love than I can give

Verse 3:
It's snowing outside, I'm going for a ride
I'm headed out to see you one last time
So if you should raise a glass, to toast what may have passed
I'll sell you wine as soon as I've arrived

Chorus:
Baby, I know you're out there
Baby, I know you care

Bridge:
I really wish I loved you more than that
I really wish I wouldn't leave you flat
But I'm a girl, and girlie's got to live
You've got way more love than I can give
Track Name: The Feng Shui Song
Chorus:
Singing Yai-dai-dai-dai
Yai-dai-dai-dai, yai-dai-dai-dai-, dai, dai (x2)

Verse 1:
Rearranging shelves of trinkets
Getting rid of all the wicked dust and gunk that's here

Chorus:
Singing Yai-dai-dai-dai
Yai-dai-dai-dai, yai-dai-dai-dai-, dai, dai (x2)

Verse 2:
Opening windows, setting straight
The feng shui that dictates fate; I've got to get that clear

Chorus:
Singing Yai-dai-dai-dai
Yai-dai-dai-dai, yai-dai-dai-dai-, dai, dai (x2)

Bridge:
What you want is always closer
Than where you think it is
Close some doors and open more
For big surprises

Chorus:
Singing Yai-dai-dai-dai
Yai-dai-dai-dai, yai-dai-dai-dai-, dai, dai (x2)

Verse 3:
Striving for illustrious,
It's time to get industrious, and let go of old fear

Chorus:
Singing Yai-dai-dai-dai
Yai-dai-dai-dai, yai-dai-dai-dai-, dai, dai (x2)

Verse 4:
You can shake it, you can make it
What you want, the day -- just take it, today starts your new year

Chorus:
Singing Yai-dai-dai-dai
Yai-dai-dai-dai, yai-dai-dai-dai-, dai, dai (x3)
Track Name: It's Time to Let Go
Chorus:
It's time to let go
How will I know
When it's time
To say goodbye?

I don't want to let go
Oh, but I know
That it's time
To say goodbye

Verse 1:
Looking back I see your face
A memory I cannot erase
Twisted time, and twisted truth
Shattered by abandoned youth
Oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

Verse 2:
Looking back won't get you far
You're much stronger when you are
Facing forward, and fancy free
A dosage of sobriety
Oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

Bridge:
Who do I want to be?
Someone better than who you see in me.
What do I want to do?
Much more than you expect me to.

No, I'm not looking back
No more self-esteem attack
I cannot be with you
Not if I want to keep growing, too
Not if I want to keep growing

Chorus:
It's time to let go
How will I know
When it's time
To say goodbye?

I don't want to let go
Oh, but I know
That it's time
To say goodbye

Instrumental - drum solo

Chorus:
It's time to let go
How will I know
When it's time

I don't want to let go
Oh, but I know
That it's time

Instrumental - trumpet solo
Track Name: Inner Child
Verse 1:
From the moment that I met you I was so far behind
And I know it did upset you that I was not so kind
And I want to say I'm sorry that you had to remind me
Now I'm working on myself so I can put that all behind me
Oh, now I'm working on myself so I can put that all behind me

Chorus:
And I need to be single for a while
A chance to be with just me, my own smile
Yes, I need to be single for a while
And hang out with my inner child

Verse 2:
From the moment we stopped talking I was so relieved
From the fighting, fear, and anger I was quick to want reprieve
In your absence, still, I miss you, and want us to be retrieved
The problem was with me and not with you like I believed
The problem was with me and not with you like I believed

Chorus:
And I need to be single for a while
A chance to be with just me, my own style
Yes, I need to be single for a while
And hang out with my inner child

Bridge:
You were right, in that whole fight
I was wrong, but now I've come along
I need some time, to clear my mind
To not think of you, and do this growing up I need to do

Verse 3:
From this moment I relinquish all my thoughts that reach the moon
You're a world away and yes, today, I vow to be clear soon
But it starts with me and yes, baby, before this afternoon
I didn't know that it took more than time to heal the wound
I didn't know that it took more than time to heal the wound

Chorus:
And I need to be single for a while
A chance to be with just me, my own smile
Yes, I need to be single for a while
And hang out with my inner child
And hang out with my inner child
