I'm working hard to be the man that you need not the man you got. To be the man I can be, be the man I'm not. Girl, your love will set me right. I'm working hard to tell you all the things you mean to me. To tell you all the things you need to hear. Girl, your love will set me right. There's something in the way you smile after we've been good awhile.
2.
Just as long as I got you, got you in my life, it's gonna be alright. Just as long as you love, love me every night, it's gonna be alright.

Nightstand. Home of your brown and black beaded necklace. Evening in the summer. We lie together quietly in the window breeze. We'll sleep late, sweet kid. We'll rise and surprise the midday sky and take the evening for a ride. Eight-ball with the answers floating. I wait patiently. Someday in the city we'll live together happily in a blue jean dream. We're happy in our blue jean dream.

Maybe We're In Love (free) 02:35
Maybe it's time we sing aloud, start holding hands, kissing in crowds. Maybe we're in love. Maybe it's time we settle down. Buy a little house, a dog running around. Maybe we’re in love. For so very, very long before we met I was waiting for the things we take for granted now.

So It Goes 03:22
January in the afternoon. We’re gonna live forever or die too soon. January, when the nights are long. We’re gonna lay until Monday and get along. And so it goes. We’re not alone but we’re growing old. In the summer, when the days are long, we’re gonna walk on weekends and get along. And in the summer, when the skies are blue, when I say I love you, you know it’s true.
6.
When the lights go out at night it sure is easy to write. Sometimes there’s nothing to be said. But we’ll be good again. Familiar name on some p.a. reminds me of the way we once used to start our day, with nothing good to say. When we’re alone it’s like the world is on our side. We’ll stay at home the rest of our lives and we’ll be fine. We’re gonna love somebody, you and me.
7.
It was the night that turned me into something that wasn’t right, that wasn’t who I wanted lying next to you. When we woke up and we were still and silent, it shook me up. And so I went outside and struggled to turn around. Now we’re okay. Now we are laughing, happy. Pray for the day when we can laugh and not be sorry for throwing stones.
8.
When the morning comes and you’re around to say what’s on your mind. It’s a crazy way to start the day, with mountains out of smiles. I’ll see you Sunday. Another chance to feel you breathing. I’ll miss you Monday. Just another day for dreaming. Put on my lonely clothes that no one knows and say what’s on my mind. And when the morning cold begins to fold you know we’ll be alright. When the morning comes and you’re away to say what’s on my mind. It’s a crazy way to end the day, with mountains out of miles.
9.
We’re gonna drive until the sun comes up. And then we’ll sleep all day. We’ll get by until the sun comes up. Then we’ll dream the day away. And we’ll stay warm in our uniforms of blue jean. And you’ll steal more of the bedroom floor and hold me.
10.
Only one. You're my only one.
11.
Jane, tell me how much you love me...
