Track Name: Paper Tiger
Paper Tiger Lyrics

You can see them
you can feel them
they'll try and fight you
but the won't bite you
they'll irritate you
don't let them hate you

Cause no one even really knows your name

You got the paper tiger paper people paper places to go
Everybody's telling me, but I still don't know
How much more of this I can take

They'll surround you
hammers pound you
they will use you
then abuse you
They'll desert you
don't let that hurt you

Cause no even really knows your name

You got the paper tiger paper people paper places to go
Everybody's telling me, but I still don't know
How much more of this I can take
Because, all they're trying to say to me is a great big lie
Like all you need to cure the pain is to go get high
I don't think they understand at all

They'll envy you for all of your power
They'll make you hurt for hours and hours
Just like you used to
Just like you used to
They'll beat you down and call you names
They'll look at you through eyes of disdain
Just like they used to
Just like they used to

Cause no even really knows your name
Cause no even really knows your name

You got the paper tiger paper people paper places to go
Everybody's telling me, but I still don't know
How much more of this I can take
Because, all they're trying to say to me is a great big lie
Like all you need to cure the pain is to go get high
I don't think they understand at all
I don't think they understand at all
Track Name: Come Find Me
Come Find Me Lyrics

She said its time for her to be leaving.
She said she's scared that i can't be strong
But i can and no i won't fall apart.

I guess ill need just a little more patience
Cause she'll be away for Oh so Long
But i can't fade away gotta carry on

Cause I know that loves gonna find me, love's gonna find me soon.

I can't promise her perfection
Cause being perfect is just too hard
But ill try my very best to stay strong
Yes ill try my very best to hold on.

Cause I know that loves gonna find me, love's gonna find me soon.
Yeah I know that loves gonna find me, love's gonna find me soon.

No i won't cry, but i may be shaken
and maybe some time, i could take a small vacation.
Into your life, to see where you've been taken
And ill be holding on, cause this is worth the waiting.

Cause I know that loves gonna find me, love's gonna find me soon.
Cause I know that loves gonna find me, love's gonna find me soon.
Track Name: Now You Know
Now You Know Lyrics

It was a natural disaster when it happened,
she wore a beautiful gown to the ball,
And I told her my name out on the dance floor
I'm surprised she remembered me at all,
It was some kind of instant connection
I could feel it so deep in my chest
at first I assumed I was dying
but the thief had just taken my breathe

And I let her get on a train in the morning
and watched as she rode down the track
I let her get on a train in the morning
And i fear that i won't get her back

And now that you're gone
Can you leave me alone
I'll sing this song
If it reaches your world
Maybe I'm wrong
Can you teach me the ropes
Can you teach me the ropes

And it felt like a kick to the stomach
I decided to roll with the blows
perhaps someday soon i could see her
but the time and the place no one knows
And my head became clouded with liquor
I decided I would give her a call
perhaps i could somehow remind her
of a beautiful night at the ball

Theres a hole in my lung
I can't breathe anymore
cause we're not quite done
can you please just come home
and maybe I'm drunk
you'd need to see me to know
you'd need to see me to know

Cause I'm not quite finished don't you know
and it's not like me to let you go
No i'm not quite finished, so now you know
no it's not like me to let you go
so i won't let you go

And I let her get on a train in the morning
and watched as she rode down the track
I let her get on a train in the morning
And i fear that i won't get her back

And now that you're gone
leave me alone
cause we're not quite done
can you please just come home
and maybe I'm drunk
you'd need to see me to know
you'd need to see me to know
Track Name: All For Love
All For Love lyrics

Maybe I was the greatest bastard,
Maybe I was the best of all,
Maybe that's why she couldn't stand me,
Maybe that's why she made the call

It was all for love,
and all that you found
within your simple heart
And it's all I'll ever want

And maybe someday I'd like to meet her
Maybe someday I'll let her know
I got some questions bout why she left me
I'll always wonder why she let me go

It was All for love
And all that you found
within your simple heart
and it's all I'll ever want

It was all for love
and all you ever needed,
All for love,
But you could never see it
All for love

It was All for love
And all that you found
within your simple heart
and it;s all I'll ever want

It was all for love
and all you ever needed,
All for love,
But you could never see it
All for love
Track Name: Foster Mountain
Foster Mountain Lyrics

Well it's times like these we never want to loose
The memories of sailing across the blue
Everyone would ask us where we were
Seems like we're the greatest travellers

We used to climb to the top of foster mountain
We used to place seaweed wigs on top of our heads
All the memories of life down at the cottage
Oh I never ever will forget
Never will forget

Well it's times like these we never want to loose
The memories of all we used to do
Everyone would ask when I'm around
And said I'm always heading out of town

We used to climb to the top of foster mountain
We used to place seaweed wigs on top of our heads
All the memories of life down at the cottage
Oh I never ever will forget
Never will forget

Climb
Climb
Climb
Climb

We used to climb to the top of foster mountain
We used to place seaweed wigs on top of our heads
All the memories of life down at the cottage
Oh I never ever will forget
Oh I never ever will forget
Oh I never ever will forget
Never
