Track Name: Edison's Rival
Don't turn the light on, leave it out
It's just a reminder of my darkest hour
There’s a ghost of a man who took what’s mine
It comes back to haunt me every night

I can't be accused of lack of vision
If I finished first, things would be different
He's one step ahead in every instant
It's no fun to be Edison's rival

One night I came home, something wasn’t right
The light from the window shone too bright
I stepped through the front door just to find
The two of them bathed in electric light

I can't be accused of lack of vision
If I finished first, things would be different
He's one step ahead in every instant
It's no fun to be Edison's rival
Track Name: Knock, Knock
Knock, Knock, what is it now?
I thought I heard a sound
I try to tune it out
But now it’s getting loud

I’m only ½ awake, come back another day
I’m only ½ awake, come back another day

Knock, Knock on the door, what’s all the racket for?
Knock, Knock - keep it up, you’re going to wake me up

Knock, Knock all around
They’re trying wear me down
Pound after pound
I can’t keep count

I’m only ½ awake, come back another day
I’m only ½ awake, come back another day

Knock, Knock on the door, what’s all the racket for?
Knock, Knock - keep it up, you’re going to wake me up
Knock, Knock on my head, it hasn’t happened yet
Knock, Knock while you can, all that you can stand
Track Name: Me & You
We could take a walk along the ocean for the afternoon, if you wanted to
Skip along the sand and stone….maybe there’s an ocean tune we could listen to
We could find a place to lie where there’s an open view
Stare up at the clouds, hey they look just like me & you

We could sail around the world together on the great big blue, if you wanted to
Or we could take an airplane so that we could go straight to anywhere we choose
We could make a map of all the places we've been to
Redraw the borders to look just like me & you

Way up in the clouds I see me & you
Drawn across the ground I see me & you
Everywhere we go I see me & you

We could take a ride on a bicycle built for two
Cut through the crowd as they make way for me & you
Track Name: Mrs. Pepper
Dear Mrs. Pepper
You're going to wait forever
If you think he's ever coming home
Oh, Mrs. Pepper
Let's do this thing together
It's time you realize he's gone

You can’t go on pretending like there’s nothing wrong
Nobody really wants to be alone
Just take a look around you and find someone to love

Oh, Mrs. Pepper
We were two of a feather
‘Til he stole your heart away
You were his treasure
Then came the stormy weather
He disappeared without a trace

It was the hardest thing I’ve ever done to watch you walk away
With a man who could never settle down
I wish things had worked better, but I’m here for you now

Look at who's taking over
I'll be your four leaf clover

You can’t go on pretending like there’s nothing wrong
Nobody really wants to be alone
Just look over your shoulder, you’ve got someone to love

Dear Mrs. Pepper
Track Name: Pretty Little Piggy
Pretty little piggy with the laughing face
You look so pretty that I really got to say
All the other little piggies just fade away
When I see my little pretty piggy

Pretty little piggy with a belly full of change
I empty out my pockets just to feed you each day
Now you’re spilling over, there’s nothing else to say
I’ll miss my little pretty piggy

It always goes away
You look so good, but it’s time to pay
It always goes away
You look so good, but now it’s time to pay

Pretty little piggy, don’t look at me that way
I said I’m sorry, but there’s no other way
I’ll always miss you with your little laughing face
So good bye little pretty piggy

It always goes away
You look so good, but it’s time to pay
It always goes away
You look so good, but now it’s time to pay
