Track Name: The Strongest Man in the World
no one to ask about fast cars and heroes
no one to tell me my music's too loud
and the freedom is so bittersweet
feels like nothing in life ever ends up complete

gave me the lecture 'bout trouble and girlfriends
told me i will cut the grass and my hair
he's the same man that bought me the toy red guitar
and he held me and lifted me up to the stars
with just one hand... the strongest man in the world

something in our house grew tired one summer
he held onto his american dream
well a man can be swallowed by pride
and he smiled as i walked up the aisle with my bride
and shook my hand... the strongest man in the world

stood by the bed where the old man was fading
watched as the power went out of his eyes
and i knew that his dreaming would not be destroyed
when i saw what he meant to my own little boy
hand in hand... with the strongest man in the world
Track Name: I'm So High
i'm lyin in the bed we made
and thinking of a hundred stupid things
that i could say
for every look in my direction
i take two steps away

can't leave the house without my keys
i put them underneath my bed
to get me on my knees
and in a minute i'll climb down there

say a prayer, let me go
don't let anybody tell me
i'm not supposed to know
how to fly
i'm so high

i'm floating high above my head
and i've forgotton all the brilliant things i might have said
and if i trust myself, i'll take my own advice

close my eyes, let me go
don't let anybody tell me
i'm not supposed to know
how to fly
i'm so high
Track Name: Faithless Kind
i feel something
is broken inside
i feel angry teardrops
burning holes in my pride
i never felt the pain in the world
like i felt when i learned that your love
was the faithless kind

i feel so empty
i got no more to give
like i lost my reason
lost my will to live

my whole world is shattered
since the only love that matters
is the faithless kind

love love

i'm afraid this heartache
ain't got no way
i feel deep down somewhere
i'm never gonna love again

well i never felt the pain in the world
like i felt when i learned that your love
is the faithless kind

when i learned your love for me
is the faithless kind
