Andrew Hart One word - Heart. It would be worth the money on it's own, but the rest is just as good! Favorite track: Heart.

Track Name: Highway
Volkswagon Bus rolling down the road
Rock and roll dream never growing old
I never wanna stagnate
I gotta find my own way home
You're never gonna know if you never go
So go!

I'll be on the highway
Slowly making my way
We're always on the run
I'll be on the highway
Slowly making my way (yeah!)
We're always on the run, run
We're always on the run

I work a 9 to 5 and it kills my soul
I don't wanna die with nothing to show
I never wanna stagnate
I gotta find my own way home
You're never gonna know if you never go

I'll be on the highway
Slowly making my way
We're always on the run
I'll be on the highway
Slowly making my way (yeah!)
We're always on the run, run
We're always on the run

And I don't believe you.
You led me blindly in the dark.
I don't trust you.
I'm letting go to defend my heart.

I'll be on the highway
Slowly making my way
We're always on the run

I'll be on the highway
Slowly making my way
We're always on the run
I'll be on the highway
Slowly making my way (yeah!)
We're always on the run, run
We're always on the run
Track Name: Malea
Music by Stu McNeill, Paul Gordon White, Tom Butler
Lyrics by Tom Butler

When she smiles my heart leaps from my chest
it takes right off into the evening air
oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

She caught my eye dancing by the seaside
Talked for hours, kiss on the cheek goodnight
oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

Whoa oh ooh ooh
Whoa oh oooooh ooh
I think I'm coming for
I think I'm coming for

Whoa oh ooh ooh
Whoa oh oooooh ooh
I think I'm coming for

Ma Malea
Ma ma Malea
Ma Malea
I think I'm coming for

She drives me wild and crazy at the same time
But I can’t wait to see her again tonight
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
My friends tell me I don't stand a chance
I'll prove them wrong with every single laugh
oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

Whoa oh ooh ooh
Whoa oh oooooh ooh
I think I'm coming for
I think I'm coming for

Whoa oh ooh ooh
Whoa oh oooooh ooh
I think I'm coming for

Ma Malea
Ma ma Malea
Ma Malea
I think I'm coming for

Ma - Malea
Ma ma Malea
I think I'm coming for
I think I'm coming for

Every girl in the world wants to be her
And every boy wants to meet her
And I call her my own

Ma Malea
Ma ma Malea
Ma Malea
I think I'm coming for
Track Name: Heart
I fell down from the mountain
On all of my mistakes
I washed the blood from my hands
You washed blood from my face
Why can't we just be better than we were yesterday?
Why can't we just be better than we were yesterday?

I know I could've been should've been more
I know I could've been should've been more

You said I know you've got
I know you, you've got heart
You said I know you've got
I know you, you've got heart

Stand up dust off my jeans now
Look at the mess I've made
Start now to keep my commitments
Start now to take my place

Why can't we just be better than we were yesterday?
Why can't we just be better than we were yesterday?

I know I could've been should've been more
I know I could've been should've been more

You said I know you've got
I know you, you've got heart

You said I know you've got
I know you, you've got heart

Why can't we just be better than we were yesterday?
Why can't we just be better than we were yesterday?
Why can't we just be better than we were yesterday?
Why can't we just be better than we were yesterday?
Why can't we just be better than we were yesterday?
Why can't we just be better than we were yesterday?
Why can't we just be better than we were yesterday?
Why can't we just be better than we were yesterday?

You said I know you've got
I know you, you've got heart

You said I know you've got
I know you, you've got heart

You said I know you've got
I know you, you've got heart

You said I know you've got
I know you, you've got heart
Track Name: Dad's Song
Driving, hear my father's voice
callin' from the side seat sayin' slow
better cool your engines pal
or you're gonna drive us off the road

from Cascade Lake to Madison Park
i was the match and you were the spark for me
left home at just 19 and
Mamma left after me

and with Mumford on the radio
it takes me back to our longest road
thanks for your hands and the love they've shown
they've always shown
they've always shown
shown me love

from docking bays to boy-to-boy days
sock wars up the spiral staircase, no
when I fell down hard
you got me up and set me on the road

you always tried to teach me to work
but all i remember is being a jerk to you
well i'm sorry for the wrinkles on your head
Sorry for the pain I caused you

and with Mumford on the radio
it takes me back to our longest road
thanks for your hands and the love they've shown
they've always shown
they've always shown

I hear a whisper
calling in the dark
brothers and sisters
this is all we are

i want my childrens' hands to feel
those big hands that help me sit still
and listen to papa's stories i know they will
i know they will

and with weezer on the radio
14 showing you the first songs I wrote
thanks for not laughing or making jokes
I love you so , I love you so
I love you so
