Track Name: Mountains High
"Mountains High" (lyrics)
by Joanna Sternberg

I often wonder why these thoughts keep crossing my mind
They run in circles and always keep me falling behind
And when I look back, look back on the years
I see all of the time that was wasted on tears

I once loved a boy and now he don't remember my name
I loved him madly although I know he didn't feel the same
It's not his fault the fault was all mine
I'm trying to feel better sometimes I feel fine

I can't, I can't be sure
How much I can endure
Each day's a mountain high
A mountain high up in the sky

We all have secrets that we keep on hiding with lies
And we believe them we believe our lies to my surprise
I'm trying hard not to lie anymore
I don't wanna be the person that I was before

All I can do is try
When climbing mountains high
All I can do is try, try not to cry on mountains high

All I can do is try
When climbing mountains high
All I can do is try, try not to cry on mountains high
Track Name: Right Here
I know that you're gone away but I will stay right here.
Yes I will stay right here.
I only hope you'll come back someday.

Still in shock look at the clock the hour's almost near.
The hour's almost near.
I know that you are getting ready.
I'm sure that you will soon forget me.
And in one day you'll go away and I'll lose you, you won't lose me.

You will always have my heart if I like it or not.
If I like it or not.
But knowing you you've already forgot.
I'm tangled in your web and now I'm caught.
I can't escape what will I do, I won't survive here without you.
Track Name: Drifting on a Cloud (the zoloft song)
I'm drifting on a cloud
I'm drifting on a cloud
I'm drifting on a cloud

I can't remember when
I was back here again
How long has it been?

How long has it been?
How long has it been?

Since my laughter was bright and I felt this light
How long has it been?

I wished for this so long
I don't know what was wrong
Just hope that it is gone

I'm drifting in a dream
Nothing is how it seemed
I'm screaming in a scream

It has been so long
Since I smiled
For no good reason
Like a child

And I'm crying from the feeling
And I'm flying past the ceiling
In the sky, I am drifting on a cloud.

My moods were up and down
I was a crying clown
Laughing to hide my frown

Now since I took this pill
I can't even sit still
I'll feel it right until

I fall off my cloud
Again
Feel that heavy weight
From back then

And I almost lost my heart
But I got a brand new start
Flying high I am drifting on a cloud

Flying high I am drifting on a cloud
Flying high I am drifting on a cloud
Track Name: Never Again
I can remember
Everything that happened
I don't expect you to
Close your eyes and see
I wish I knew you
Back when you were lonely
Never again lonely
Now that you're with me


Sometimes we hide
Hide inside of bedrooms
I loved to hide
Until I met you
Thanks for your smile
Many smiles it brought me
Many smiles it brought me
Now I can see

CHORUS

Everything you've done for me
And all the smiles your smile brought me
Can't end
How can it end?

It's always big news
When it's the first time
After the first time
Nothing means that much it seems
I lost my mind
Now it's hard to find
I won't forget you
You will forget me

CHORUS
I know what you're gonna do
And then I know I can't see you again
Never again

(humming)
Track Name: How People Work (neighbors...)
You don't say hi to me so I don't say hi to you
You won't smile at me so I won't smile at you So, so what's next?
So, so what's next?

I see you standing there, you see me standing here
Thoughts of approaching you are filling me with fear
So, so what's next?
So, so what's next?

So, so what's next?
In the scheme of things
I will never
Though my heart, it stings
And my paranoia's chasing me
Although we both must know
That we are far to stubborn to
Ever let our feelings show

Sometimes I find that I'm talking to myself
If I said something wrong so much for mental health
Why'd I say that?
Why'd I say that?
(humming)

I look over at you seeming so strong and cool
If I go talk to you, I'll look like such a fool
So I won't go
So I won't go

So, I won't go.
I will let you be.
We may never
Get the chance to see

If a conversation builds and shatters
All we thought we knew
If you do not say hi to me, and I will not say hi to you
And I will not say hi to you
And I will not say hi to you

(humming)
Track Name: He Dreams
He dreams of another
Every time I call his name Every time I call but still I fall In love
Again

Oh, he dreams of another
Every time he feels the same
How can I get over the pain I know I will not love again
I will not love again
I will not love again

Her eyes pierce my heart with a sword Her hair black as night
Her face sweet like the smell of rain
Soft lips that kissed him goodnight

So he dreams of another
But he says it isn't so
How can I believe as I watch him grieve He'll never let her go
He'll never let her go
He'll never let her go
Track Name: Human Magnet Song (for Ross Rosenberg)
I felt your magnet pull me near
As my whole body quaked with fear
The minute I met you
Your human magnet had a force
That I was blinded by of course
Now I must forget you

This moment of our lives Will not happen again
I wish to be apart
From the moment we began

I know that we don't get along
But no strength is as strong
As our magnets

Though I am tempted to break free To be divided by a sea
I know i can't free me

This moment of our lives Will not happen again
I hope to be apart
From the moment we began

(humming)
Track Name: Lullaby to Myself (the insomnia song)
When you're sleepy
Go in bed to hear me
I'm just waiting
For you to close your eyes

But if I sing this little tune
Designed to carry you
Gently down the path to float to sleep

Go in your book
Full of dreams and take a look
Pick one to make you
Have the sweetest dreams

You are your own best friend
Hibernating in your den
Gently down the path to float to sleep

Sing this lazy song
With me as you sleep
Sing this lazy song
And no nightmares shall creep

Don't be scared now
When you're in the darkness
Nothing will harm you
Your pillow's soft and warm

Please don't forget the things you know
Now I think it's time to go
Gently down the path to float to sleep

Sing this lazy song
With me as you sleep
Sing this lazy song
And no nightmares shall creep

And no nightmares shall creep
And no nightmares shall creep
Track Name: Without You
Without You, I'll never make it out alive
Without You, won't have no reason to survive
Without You, I'll greet the river then I'll dive
Without You

I'll never, I'll never stop singing the blues
I'll never, I'll never stop thinking of you
If love songs can work at all
Of course they do
But not without you

(humming)

I'll never, I'll never stop singing the blues
I'll never, I'll never stop thinking of you
If love songs can work at all
Of course they do
But not without you
Track Name: I Will Be With You (an Irish waltz)
Every night I cannot sleep I lie awake and pray
I will be with you
I will be with you
I will be with you someday

When I drift into a dream
You're there each night and day I will be with you
I will be with you
I will be with you someday

One day, you'll see
How your life was meant to share with me I will be with you
I will be with you
I will be with you someday

I'm not one to play a game I ain't too proud to pray I will be with you
I will be with you
I will be with you someday

One day, you'll see
How your life was meant to share with me
I will be with you
We'll start our lives new
I will be with you someday
