Track Name: Just To Be With You
Just To Be With You
by Chris Vogt


I would shiver out in the cold
Stand waiting for your hand to hold
Just to be with you

And I would stay awake all night
Talking to you until the morning light
Just to be with you

Please don’t consider it a crime
The way I spend my time
Because there isn’t any excuse
That I wouldn’t use
That I wouldn’t use
Just to be with you

I could watch the worst movie
As long as you were sitting there next to me
Just to be with you

And I could learn your favorite song
Though I’d probably get it all wrong
Just to be with you

Please don’t consider it a crime
The way I spend my time
Because there isn’t any excuse
That I wouldn’t use
No, there isn’t an excuse
That I wouldn’t use
Just to be with you

I don’t care if I’m criticized
For all the plans that I will devise
Just to be with you

And I don’t mind looking like a fool
‘Cause there isn’t much that I wouldn’t do
Just to be with you
Just to be with you
Just to be with you
Track Name: More Than You Know
More Than You Know
by Chris Vogt


Your eyes, how they shine
Brighter than the stars
Brighter than the stars

Your lips taste like chocolate-
Covered candy
Covered candy

You are beautiful
You are beautiful
You are beautiful
More than you know

Your hair feels like silk
Running through my hands
Running through my hands

Your skin is angelic
So smooth to the touch
So smooth to the touch

You are beautiful
You are beautiful
You are beautiful
More than you know

You are beautiful
You are beautiful
You are beautiful
More than you know

More than you know…
Track Name: Unfinished Sympathy
Unfinished Sympathy
by Chris Vogt


I’m sorry, dear, that you are having
Such a crappy day
If I were able
I would take the crap away
I’d paint your skies with the brightest sun
And bluest of blues
And I’d fill your heart with all
The joy you could use
Track Name: The Verge Of Falling
The Verge Of Falling
by Chris Vogt


It’s funny how our plans
Are as solid as shifting sands
Before you even know it you are holding hands
With a special someone
Wasn’t it just yesterday
That I was off in my own way?
Now you are someone else who has a say
And I don’t really mind at all

I’m losing ground
I hear a sound of victory

I never thought that I would find
Someone with such a like mind
And someone who is so unbelievably kind
You know that it’s true
And when I look into your eyes
I see oceans, I see skies
It doesn’t really come as any surprise
That you have drawn me in

I’m losing ground—I’m nearly crawling
I hear the sound of your victory calling
My defenses are surrounded, but I keep stalling
I keep stalling

I’m holding out
I’m holding on to everything I should
All necessary working parts
But don’t begin to doubt
Please, don’t be inclined to think that I would never
Want to give each other our hearts
In due time

I’m losing ground—I’m nearly crawling
The only sound is your victory calling
My defenses have been bound, but I keep on stalling
My world is upside-down—I’m on the verge of falling
I’m on the verge of falling
I’m on the verge of falling
I’m on the verge of falling for you
I’m on the verge of falling for you
Track Name: Take This Road
Take This Road
by Chris Vogt


It’s a fine evening
The sun is setting
And I’m sitting here by the waterside
It’s so refreshing
Yet I’m so uneasy
Because you keep running through my mind

And I know we’re both so afraid
Of what could happen when tomorrow breaks
But I’m here, I’m ready to make
A risk with you, no matter what it takes
So, take my hand, we’ll walk down this road
We’ll find together where it goes

The night has fallen
Revealing in the distance
A million worlds unseen with our eyes
It’s so profound
So exhilarating
Just like how ours found a way to collide

And I know we’re both so afraid
Of what could happen when tomorrow breaks
But I’m here, I’m ready to make
A risk with you no matter what it takes
So, take my hand, we’ll walk down this road
We’ll find together where it goes

Will you take, take this road with me?
Will you take, take this road with me?
Will you take, take this road with me?
Will you take, take this road with me?
Will you take, take this road with me?
Will you take, take this road with me?

So, take my hand, we’ll walk down this road
We’ll find together where it goes
