This record hosts Cheryl's first TV placements. The record was written to perform live and after hitting the road for a few years with these songs, they became perfect uses for shows like "All My Children", "Real World" and "Jane By Design"!

Track Name: Hi
it was always just a chord progression of events that never turned into anything until they did and they do. caught up in a wind that won me over, and landing where i thought i couldn't, relatively speaking, who knows where forward is, anyway? i found myself turning a corner and being amused that the only word i could think to say to you was "hi".
Track Name: Keep
I’m runnin’ fast and I am, I’m dodging trees.
The ground is frozen beneath the lazy breeze.
I think I’m close but I can’t be sure so
I’ll play it safe and I will, I will run some more.

Don’t let me keep you
‘cause I got too much to do.
Don’t let this get too deep
‘cause I got my soul to keep.

My hands are damp. The clay is fine.
I’m focused now on keeping time.
The table turns. The figure spins.
I’m molding you, the sculpture wins.

Spotless desert
Loose tongue
Talk balk walk back
Before the coffee’s done.
Grab it and devour
Don’t keep track of the hour.
Gift-wrapped love snapped
Drummin’ drums it has begun.

I fall in love at least 4 times a day.
And though it looks like I’m running, I will never run away.
Track Name: 16 Walls
My bags were busted at the seams. I was fleeing from more than my broken dreams.
I had my one-way ticket to Neverland where fairytales were forever banned.

On my way, I put up walls, one by one. Every time I got hurt, another got done.

There’s something I've been meaning to do; find you.
I've got 16 walls to break through to love you
Something's got to give for me to take
so 16 walls are coming, coming down today.

I stop to breathe, I look for the view.
I got no response when I called out to you.
I fall to my knees and I collapse to the ground.
I try to scream but I can’t make a sound.

Deep connection mixed with lust…
mind heart body unanimous.

There's a clearing in front of me
a pile of rubble at my feet
One step over and now I’m free
I can be who I want and I want to just be.

There’s something I've been meaning to do; find you.
I've got 16 walls to break through to love you
Something's got to give for me to take
so 16 walls are coming, they’re coming down today.
Track Name: Day Dreamer
Taxi cab splashes cause I got too close.
My headache is stronger than the strongest dose
of the little pills I took today.
The bottle said “take one to make pain go away”.

Crowd pushes past me, I push to go up
The phone rings again, I wish it’d shut up
I splash my face and I face the day
I look at the clouds and they pull me away.

I’m a day dreamer
Getting lost in the sky
Making stories up inside
my head never rests,
it waits for my return
and reality tells me I got something to learn;
that everyone thinks that I got love to burn.

But I got papers to file, a “dear jon” to write soon
Another love I filed under “doomed”.
If I’m quiet today don’t be alarmed
I’m on a short-term diet of internal charm.

I’m a day dreamer
Getting lost in the sky
Making stories up inside
my head never rests,
it waits for my return
and everyone thinks I got love to burn
well everyone has got something to learn [maybe it’s all in my head]

Thank you for sharing….
It’s not that I don’t care
But today I don’t got, I don’t got no love to spare.
So leave me in my stare and stay outta my day dreams.

Thanks for the flowers they’ll liven up my room
and dinner was fun let’s do it again soon.
I’m trying to behave and do everything right
but I’m tired and I can’t wait to sleep tonight.

I’m a day dreamer
Getting lost in the sky
Making stories up inside
my head never rests,
it waits for my return
reality tells me I got love to burn
and if that’s the case then I got something left to learn.
Track Name: You Want To
I remember when the night was young a few hours ago.
Now you stare from across the room while the story unfolds.

Why don’t you come over here, boy
‘cause I’m not coming to you.
Why don’t you look me in the eye
and tell me what I already knew?

You want to touch me gently and build the suspense and
you want to pull me close and make the most of this
and that’s all right.
If you want to I’m yours tonight.

I feel your eyes all the way from here.
It’s been a while since I felt like this, almost a year.

Why has the music stopped?
Or was that just my heart?
Call me crazy call me Juliet,
come on Romeo, play the part.

I cannot let myself risk it all again.
I cannot let my heart be in someone else’s hands.
But it you keep looking at me like that,
I just might change my plans.

I’ll stand here till the clock strikes none as you make your way to me.
you words will get caught on your tongue but I’ll loosen them free.

You want to hold me yeah
You want to be with me.
and that’s all right; if you want to I’m yours tonight. (Just say you want to)
Track Name: So Soon
Mysteries elude you.
Lovers past confuse you.
You give your best and take the worst
So take a breath ‘cause I know you hurt.

You live a life you can’t see.
Your love’s a wind that lifts me.

You will find your way.
You lift your face to the rain.
The moon will follow you
through every cloud that you pass through
so soon.

Your passions live deep inside
And there so quietly they lie
Until the day you take a chance
And let those passions out to dance.

I found my strength in you,
you found the strength to pull me through.
There’s a part of you in all I do. (Don’t loose your fire.)
Track Name: Wrapped Up
I wasn’t looking for you.
I know you weren’t looking for me.
I had to choose between a rock and a hard place
And I chose option C.

Because I’ve been wrapped up in my own thing
And now you’ve taken me away
And you make me wanna sing: Bring it on love I’ll get wrapped up in you any day.

I kept you nice and close
Just close enough away
When you packed up your things to leave
I knew I wanted you to stay


Timing can’t compete with you
nor any other of my cop-out excuses.
I’ll learn to love and I will love to live and I will live with you believing in me.

I’ve been wrapped up in my own thing.

I’ve been wrapped up
In my own thing
And now you’ve taken me away
You make me wanna sing
La da da dee de da di da di day
Track Name: Side Effects
I thought that he was all I needed.
I thought I found the perfect connection.
It was so hot I didn’t feel the bleeding
after the fight for his affection.

Now I’m tired the side effects
the open ended sores and the slamming of the doors.
I remember every word he said
I can’t forget his side effects.

I wanna make you my daily routine.
I wanna think it’s not all in my head.
As I lie here I wanna believe
that this is more than it seems.

‘Cause I’m tired of the side effects
the headaches and the fainting and the endless nights of waiting.
I remember every word he said
I try to forget the side effects. [try to forget]

I just wanted to be held. Look what you started.

Moving on now.

You are exactly what I needed,
always looking for the brightest star.
It’s funny that that’s how you see me,
maybe we’re meant to be, just the way we are…

without any side effects
only love and respect, you’re better than the rest.
The only thing I get from you
has a positive effect…. on me…
No side effects.
We’ll have the most amazing
Track Name: This Train
Who is this dispatcher?
Can he make the train go faster?
Like the man who’s running Oz
From behind that curtain and some fog
Like talent in a jar
Of your favorite falling star.
Like the fear behind your eyes
The kind that made the other kids cry.

Who is driving this train?
Someone with nothing to lose
and everything to gain
I’ll take the wheel if I can loose control
If I could just let go.

There’s a hand behind every puppet
They’re dancing around pretending that they’re lovin’ it
Oooo we watch it go down
like a ship in the distance destined to drown.

Big lights in a bigger sky
disappear when a firefly passes by.
A word touches your thoughts
Ties my stomach up in knots.

Who is driving this train?
Someone with nothing to lose
and everything to gain
I’ll take the wheel if I can loose control

What takes me over leaves me gasping for air
Now that I’m older I can’t pretend that I don’t care
I don’t care where I’m going
as long as I’m going somewhere.

Who is driving this train?
Someone like me with nothing to lose
and something to gain.
I’ll take the wheel if I can only let it go. I’d let it go.
Track Name: We
We weave in and out of the anchors that tie others down. We swim free in the ocean. Free. But let me take a breath. The surface lies beneath. It lies beneath us. But still we lie to save ourselves… so save me. For I am the other half of we.
Track Name: Congratulations
Congratulations, you made the happiest girl in the world sad.
Congratulations you proved yourself to be nothin’ more than a man.
You try to make me crumble in the place where I stand,
But congratulations you picked the wrong girl to control ‘cause I know who I am.

That’s a pretty nasty trick to play on someone for a whole year…
Pursuing and losing and giving in to your fears.
And now you don’t believe me when I say it’s for real
But congratulations to me, ‘cause I know how to deal…. With you.

Okay I’ll play your game of give and take.
When I go away, that’s when you seem to wake.
It’s my turn to pull back now. Now I have to wait for you.

Congratulations, you made the happiest girl in the world cry.
Congratulations you proved yourself to be basically the average guy.
And now you’ve returned and I think I lost track… is it my turn to leave?
well maybe next time I won’t come back.
No.

Like they all say, I can do better any day…. of the year.
Track Name: Up We Go
I’m ready to go
And take what I know
and travel these roads and watch it grow.

Why pack it all in one bag?
Why watch the news when it’s so sad?
Let’s go before you make me mad.
I wanna be the first one out when they
finally raise the flag.

Here we go again
You’ve come back around.
I’m floating away, my feet far from the ground.
I’ll take this ride, you take my hand
and up we go, up we go again.

You followed me through the rain.
You let me be then I did the same.

You learned to love, I learned to change.
My heart laughs when I hear your name.

Here we go again
I’ve come back around.
I’m floating away, my feet far from the ground.
I’ll take this ride, you take my hand
and up we go, I’ll take this ride,
I’ll take this chance, you take my hand
and up we go, up we go again.
