Track Name: Adam's Rib
Once upon a time
I was just a little bone
I was just a little tiny rib
And the rib cage was my home
Somedays I'd wonder how it would feel
To be my own person
To eat my own meals

I never had to make a plan
Just be a little piece of a bigger man

And Adam rocked my world
I was his biggest fan
No such thing as being a girl
He had the whole world in his hands

Now that was the life
No worries, no pain
Just stay in my place
And grow a little more each day
I never had to make a plan
Just be a little piece of a bigger man

And Adam rocked my world
I was his biggest fan
No such thing as being a girl
He had the whole world in his hands

Then I started to wonder
What's this spell I might be under
It's time to break away
It's time to feed this hunger

Never had to take a stand
Just be a little piece of a bigger man

And Adam rocked my world
I was his biggest fan
No such thing as being a girl
He had the whole world in his hands
Track Name: There Is No Beautiful
Maybe it scares you
Maybe it makes you cry
Maybe it reminds you of all that you deny

To see the good
You never would

Without the ugly
There is no beautiful
Without the ugly
There is no beautiful

Walk down the street
And I turn my blind eye
I don't want to meet
The parts of myself I might find

To see the good
You never would

Without the ugly
There is no beautiful
Without the ugly
There is no beautiful

So Venus tries
To sympathize
We make her look so good

As kind is to cruel
As bitter is to sweet
This life has a rule
That the two must somehow meet

To see the good
You never would

Without the ugly
There is no beautiful
Without the ugly
There is no beautiful
Track Name: Absolutely Happy
How did I think it would be
Maybe like a tv show
Half hour episodes
to solve everything and make you
absolutely happy
Absolutely happy
Now I've made you cry
Never see it coming
Always takes me by surprise
that I don't make you
absolutely happy,
Sure gonna try to make you
absolutely happy
And why should I
I'm as mixed up as the next guy
And how could I
I'm just a woman
who wants to be here by your side
Wipe those tears away
'cause they'll be here again
before we know it
Just have one thing to say
that I will never make you
absolutely happy,
I'm sure gonna try to make you
absolutely happy,
But I know I'll never make you
absolutely happy,
Still I'll try to make you
absolutely happy
Track Name: I Can't Take My Eyes Off You
So dear to me
Always keep me company
Who needs to go outside
I will be your silent bride

I can't take my eyes off you

Nothing ever needs to be said
You send your message right into my head
You fill me up when I'm alone
So soothing is your monotone

I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes off you

So maybe you're not as real as the others
But I choose you over all my past lovers
For they have come and they have gone
but I can always turn you on

I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes off you
Track Name: Waiting For The Tide
I cry up to the man in the moon
He's the only one can help me now
I bought the line that as long as I tried
I could not leave empty handed
But I've done all I can do
And now I leave it up to you

I'm waiting for the tide to turn
Waiting for the tide to turn
Waiting, waiting for the tide to take me
To take me away

Goodnight moon
I should be talkin' to Neptune
He's the one who will teach me patience
For whoever rules the sea
Is now the ruler over me

I'm waiting for the tide to turn
Waiting for the tide to turn
Waiting, waiting for the tide to take me...

So I have proved
Some things can't be moved
And here I wait
But my faith is weak
And the water's creeping up to my chin

I am waiting for the tide to turn
Waiting for the tide to turn
Waiting, waiting for the tide
To take me away...
Track Name: Good Gifts
Good gifts of love
Good gifts you hand me down
From your first touch
To my wedding gown

Do you even know
What you've given me
Do you even see
That you are wisdom
You are wisdom to me
My song, my soul
You gave so easily
I'll not forget
These gifts to me

We say goodbye
But we are not alone
Here with me still
My heart, my home

Do you even know
What you've given me
Do you even see
That you are wisdom
You are wisdom to me
My song, my soul
You gave so easily
I'll not forget
These gifts to me
I'll not forget
These gifts to me
