Track Name: Make It Better - Demo
Every day I think about what happened
And how I let you down
I could try to beg you to forgive me
But if you say so I’ll be on my way
Or if you want I’ll stay

There is nothing I can do to make it right
So I will try to make it better
I can hear you crying through the night
So I will try to make it better
I will try to make it better

Do you want to tell me how you’re feeling?
Or should I just leave you alone
Would it help to hear how much I love you?
Or if you say so I’ll be on my way
But if you want I’ll stay

There is nothing I can do to make it right
So I will try to make it better
I can hear you crying through the night
So I will try to make it better
I will try to make it better

I just can’t bare to see
The way you look at me
I want to see you smile again

There is nothing I can do to make it right
So I will try to make it better
I can hear you crying through the night
So I will try to make it better
I will try to make it better
I will try to make it better
Make it better
Track Name: Lucky - Demo
I thought my world was ending
My bed was empty and the sky was gray
Ever since you went away
That's over!
I've done a lot of thinking
And maybe too much drinking, Maybe not
Still I know now what I've got

I've got a lot of other people
Who will care enough to see me
Through another day

I'm feeling Lucky
I'm feeling Lucky
You should have bet the long shot
You could have the whole pot

I'm feeling Lucky
I'm feeling Lucky
I'm looking at a strong hand
I'm betting all that I can
'cause I'm feeing Lucky

You said I'd die without you
And that I'd cry about you all the time
It would make me lose my mind
Whatever!
I've grown a whole lot stronger
You've grown a little longer in the tooth
Sorry, babe it's just the truth

So now I've come to the conclusion
That our love was an illusion
And it faded away

I'm feeling Lucky
I'm feeling Lucky
You should have bet the long shot
You could have the whole pot

I'm feeling Lucky
I'm feeling Lucky
I'm looking at a strong hand
I'm betting all that I can
'cause I'm feeing Lucky

I fell apart when you walked out
God, I wanted you to stay
I'm feeling so much better now
So, I wouldn't have it any other, any other way

I'm feeling Lucky
I'm feeling Lucky
You should have bet the long shot
You could have the whole pot

I'm feeling Lucky
I'm feeling Lucky
I'm looking at a strong hand
I'm betting all that I can

I'm feeling Lucky
I'm feeling Lucky
You should have bet the long shot
You could have the whole pot

I'm feeling Lucky
I'm looking at a strong hand
I'm betting all that I can
'cause I'm feeing Lucky
Track Name: Sycamore (Demo)
Sycamore

Time burns away my memory,
But Sycamore will always be.

Sycamore, at the corner of Riverside.
We were young. We were lonely. You asked me for a ride.
Where did we drive that day? I don’t remember.
No matter anyway for the place. ‘Cause the smile on your face
cast a golden glow and made my soul surrender.

Time burns away my memory,
But Sycamore will always be.

We were cold, with the top down, we went inside.
We were young and we were lonely. I asked you for a ride.
And what we did that night, I still remember.
The fire burned so bright in the room. But the sun came too soon
for the golden glow of the embers.

Time burns away my memory,
But Sycamore will always be.

Sycamore, at the corner of Riverside.
All those miles and all those years ago and still you’re by my side.
So much of time and space, I don’t remember.
But, there are treasures time can’t erase, like the smile on your face.
In the golden glow, the golden glow of our December.
Track Name: Falling Again - Demo
Said I’d hold on to this heart of mine
No more letting go
Baby, how was I to know you’d
Fold it in two like a Valentine
Crumbled in your hand
Not exactly how I planned it

I don’t know what you do to me
But, I’ve been here before
It’s always the same
I’m drawn in like a moth would be
Always going to far
Into the flame

Thought I blocked out every sound
Why did I still hear you calling
Thought my feet were on the ground
So I can’t understand why I’m falling again


You ask me how have I been
Well, babe I’m doing fine
Can you read between the lines I’m
Tired of this groove that we’re in
I’m always getting burned
There’s a lesson to be learned here

I don’t know what you do to me
But, I’ve been here before
It’s always the same
I should work up some apathy
Tell my why should I care?
It’s only a game

Thought I blocked out every sound
Why did I still hear you calling
Thought my feet were on the ground
So I can’t understand why I’m falling

Love can lift you to the sky
Start off flying, end up crawling
Lover, should I laugh or cry
‘Cause I can’t understand why I’m falling again
