Lyrics

We Are

Written By: Casey J. Cavanagh

You win so
put your cards back on the table
and let me be

'cuz I can't
take much more of this heartache
that you've given me

Oh we all, fall down
we fall down sometimes
but we get back up
and we stand back in line

We are, we are
so beautiful
as strange as it must seem
we are, we are
we are living in
a complex but beautiful dream

You are so beautiful
so extravagant
I wanna catch your disease

In the midst of all this
I cant get
what I really need

Oh we all, fall down
we fall down sometimes
but we get back up
and we stand back in line

We are, we are
so beautiful
as strange as it must seem
we are, we are
we are living in
a complex but beautiful dream

Happy

Written By: Casey J. Cavanagh

Look at you out on the dancefloor
shaking the night away
I wanna hold you deep in my arms
wanna feel your hips swing

You make me happy
please stay for a while
then we could be happy
happy tonight, what a wonderful life

Look at you just sitting on the stairs
waiting for someone to take your hand
oh babe I love you, and I need you
I can be your man

You make me happy
please stay for a while
then we could be happy
happy tonight, what a wonderful life

Some Things

Written By: Casey J. Cavanagh

I left my heart in Boston
She said she'd never leave
Now I'm standing here
Trying to relieve

The pain that she's caused me
Now I'm all alone
Yes now she's on a train
Down to San Anton'

Ooo Ooo Ooo
I find it kind of strange
Ooo Ooo Ooo
That some things never change
Some things never change
They never change

I have moved on now
I've found a better place
Where I can see the sun shine
And forget about her face

The love that we once shared
It's breaking me in two
The words that we used to say
I love you

On My Way

Written By: Casey J. Cavanagh

I dont, really
Know what's going on
In my head (in my head)
Hello, goodbye
That's all you said

Well I'm on my way around
Yes I'm on my way around
You think I'm crazy,
But I'm just getting down
Yes I'm on my way around
(Yeah)
