Lyrics

Love Comes to Town

Written By: Jeff Horwitz

When I go out baby
You're never very far
Whether I'm alone
or riding in my car

With the seasons changing
I know what I need to do
Cause this love we're making
Is made up of me and you.

They say you'll know it when you see it
When it comes around
Yeah, you'll know it when you feel it
When love comes to town

With my rosy glasses
The way I see the world
I know that everything passes
Cause I got my girl

As the years are changing
I am still here next to you
Cause this love we're making
Is made up of me and you

They say you'll know it when you see it
When it comes around
Yeah, you'll know it when you feel it
When love comes to town
They say you'll know it when you see it
When it comes around
Yeah, you'll know it when you feel it
When love comes to town

Well I'm sure you think I'm crazy baby
I'm sure you think I lost my mind
When I talk about this thing I'm feeling
That will come in due time
It could come to you in the oddest of times
in the strangest of forms
It could come to you from far away
or right outside your door

They say you'll know it when you see it
When it comes around
Yeah, you'll know it when you feel it
When love comes to town
They say you'll know it when you see it
When it comes around
Yeah, you'll know it when you feel it
When love comes to town

Ugly on the Inside

Written By: Teresa Horwitz

So you say you're feeling lonely
Say you're feeling down
Can't get no one to love you
It's a good thing I'm around

You're all hippie on the outside
You claim it as your own
But it's chaos on the inside
Not worthy of your om

You're ugly on the inside
You're ugly on the inside
You're ugly on the inside
And nobody sees it but me

So afraid of silence
Cause quiet breeds the truth
So you noisy up your life
Just to hide from being you

The antithesis of peaceful
Looking everywhere but in
Just blame somebody else
And be exempt from your sin.

You're ugly on the inside
You're ugly on the inside
You're ugly on the inside
And nobody sees it but me.

With so many things that you're hiding behind
Reiki, brow pencil, patchouli, hair dye
Convincing your friends and believing the lie
With your knot of crazy all for me to untie
You know I don't talk just to hear myself speak
And it's certainly time to practice what I preach
You can't understand cause you're not so unique
You're much to weak.

All the new age healing
Don't do a thing for you
I'm walking out the front door
You believe your own truth

My pair of life scissors
So cold and so cruel
Just having them's enough
I've only used them on you

You're ugly on the inside
You're ugly on the inside
You're ugly on the inside
And nobody sees it but me

Could it Be You

Written By: Jeff Horwitz

I put myself out there for you
Day after day
Moon after moon

I've been waiting for the wind
To blow my way
And bring me on home to you

Cause I just need someone to hold, could it be you?

If you can catch this restless heart
And keep me grounded
I'll take my hat off to you

It ain't easy being me
In this old world
With all the I'm trying to do

Cause I just need someone to hold, could it be you?

Could it be that I need you?
Could it be you need me to?
Could it be that I need you?
Tell me honey, could it be you?

I have been dearly devoted
To my well-being and state of mind

I've been living in this bubble
For far too long
It's time to head out for a drive

Cause I just need someone to hold, could it be you?

I put myself out there for you
Day after day
Moon after moon

Cause I've been waiting for the wind
To blow my way
Bring me on home to you

Cause I just need someone to hold, could it be you?

Could it be that I need you?
Could it be you need me to?
Could it be that I need you?
Tell me honey, could it be you?

One Day

Written By: Jeff Horwitz

In the summer sun I dig my heels in, trying to stop time.
Like a waning moon I feel it pulling, and I'm high tide.
This play never stops. I'll savor every drop I've got.

One day are words a dreamer loves to use.
One day I may not have this point of view.
One day always comes.
One day always comes.
So I'm gonna have my fun, have my fun today.

Looking back, on the time we spent together.
You just hang your head cause you missed out on the sunny weather.
One day, one day I'll make the time for you.
I'm gonna make it right, I'll stay the night and I'll make the time for you and me.

On a crisp spring day I'll make no secret, wanna stop time.
With the speed of June I feel us hurtling through the rest of our lives.
This play never stops. I'll savor every drop I've got.

One day are words a dreamer loves to use.
One day I may not have this point of view.
One day always comes.
One day always comes.
So I'm gonna have my fun, have my fun today.

Looking back, on the time we spent together.
You just hang your head cause you missed out on the sunny weather.
One day, one day I'll make the time for you.
I'm gonna make it right, I'll stay the night and I'll make the time for you and me.

You and me
You and me
You and me
It's about you and me
It's about you and me
It's about you and me
It's about you and me

Between You and I

Written By: Jeff Horwitz

Isn't it time that I, ran aground and made you mine.
Cause even I can't forget, the feel of your smile the weight of your breath.
Falling out under this sky, the stars come out just to say good night.
Just between you and I, everything's gonna be just fine.

Ooooh, haven't you figured out, you're mine?
All mine.
Ooooh, haven't you figured out, you're mine?
All mine.

Like the key tied to Franklin's kite, there's no better time than tonight.
With electricity in the air, the smell of your style our fate in your care.
So let's go out into this night, make big plans and change our lives.
Just between you and I, everything's gonna be just fine.

Ooooh, haven't you figured out, you're mine?
All mine.
Ooooh, haven't you figured out, you're mine?
All mine.
