Track Name: #1
#1
Written by: Clay Bell

It’s the devil that makes me
Write these songs
Sad and blue
Do do do do do

I don’t know why
He’s just using me
To speak to you
Do do do do do

Now you’re looking after number 1
And I don’t blame you
If that’s what you choose to do
Because who
Looks after you?

You once believed in humanity
And that brother looks after brother
Now you awoken from that dream
And found the real world is quite another

So you’re looking after number 1
And I don’t blame you
If that’s what you choose to do
Because who
(Who who who, who who who)
Looks after you?
(Who who who, who who who)
Oh yea who
(Who who who, who who who)
Looks after you
(Who who who, who who who)

No ones pullin’ out their hair
Worryin’ (about you)
No ones stayin’ up late at night
Worryin’ (about you)

So if you’re in a self destructive phase
I can’t blame you
For what your about to do
Because who
(Who who who, who who who)
Looks after you
(Who who who, who who who)
Oh yea who
(Who who who, who who who)
Looks after you
(Who who who, who who who)

It’s the devil that makes me write these songs
Track Name: Marketplace
Market Place
Written by: Clay Bell

In the market place
Scanning the crowds for a cool face
Searching for a smile
I might forget yours
For a little while

Gather my senses, building fences
To no avail, only fail
To meet you there
Oh more than an hour before

In the market place
Trip down isle five
Don’t change my mind
Read a label to
All my thoughts still belong
Just to you

Gather my senses, building fences
To no avail, only fail
To meet you there
Oh more than an hour before

In the market place

In the market place
Track Name: Oblivion
Oblivion
Written by: Clay Bell

Would you searching for something beautiful
Someone precious and true
I believe that love is out there
Please tell me I am not lead astray

The rain it never fell
What does it matter now?
You nourished me back to health
What does it matter now?
If you and I never fail
What does it matter now?
The rain it never fell
What does it matter?

I can see tomorrow’s warm rays
Looking brighter than today’s cold wave
I know that you are out there
Please tell me I am not lead astray

The rain it never fell
What does it matter now?
You nourished me back to health
What does it matter now?
If you and I never fail
What does it matter now?
The rain it never fell
What does it matter?

I don’t want to slip into oblivion again
I won’t close my eyes and let the darkness win
That’s oblivion.

If you and I never fail
What does it matter now?
The rain it never fell
What does it matter now?
(Would you searching for something)
Matter Now
(Someone precious and true)
Matter Now
(Would you searching for something)
(Someone precious and true)
Track Name: Gave Up
Gave Up
Written by: Clay Bell

Oh how could it be that I see
The chestnuts in bloom
And feel nothing

After you gave up dear was
Never quite enough dear
After you gave up

It used to be but not that low
A bluebird’s song could sooth my soul

After you gave up dear was
Never quite enough dear
After you gave up

You don’t make it easy
You don’t make it easy
You don’t make it easy
You won’t make it easy
Missing you like I do

You don’t make it easy
You don’t make it easy
You don’t make it easy
You don’t make it easy
Missing you like I do

Cause after you gave up dear was
Never quite enough dear
After you gave up

After you gave up

After you gave up dear was
Never quite enough dear
After you gave up
Track Name: Love is a Road
Love is a Road


Have you seen the nighttime daydream that is her skin
Shows me domination is a game that no one wins

Loves just a word
Let it serve
Like a road that leads me back
To her, back to her

Love is a road

I have seen the nighttime darker when she’s not around
I can feel her ghost beside me at anytime I have found

Loves just a word
Let it serve
Like a road that leads me back
To her, back to her

Love is a road

Life gets hazy, no direction
We all twistin the wind
Get lost at times
Destination seems out of reach
Give it time & you might find
That love is a road

Loves just a word
Let it serve
Like a road that leads me back
To her, back to her

Love is a road
Track Name: Sarah's Sunshine
Sarah’s Sunshine
Written by: Clay Bell

I’m the type to wish on stars
Wherever you are
I wish I were there

Traveled halfway around the world
Just to lose a girl
From my own hometown

I am riding someone else’s high
On a matchbook on now that I love
Inscribed inside is a hand drawn sun
It’s signed by “Sarah – with love”

Now I’m holding on to Sarah’s sunshine
Feels so warm against my skin
Holding on to Sarah’s sunshine
And thinking of what could have been

Last call had been called
Just you against the wall
With neon hair

Took a walk down a dirt road
Just west of Birmingham
Where my heart lay exposed

We talked of love
We talked of pain
Until the sun came
But you never told me your name

In my coat pocket
You slipped your gift
With a slight of hand
And now I’m just trying to understand

So I’m holding on to Sarah’s sunshine
Feels so warm against my skin
Holding on to Sarah’s sunshine
And thinking of what could have been

Nowhere to write, nowhere to call
And I can’t reach out to Sarah at all
It coulda’ been bad, it coulda’ been great
A mistake, but the worst part
Is we’ll never, we’ll never know

So I’m holding on to Sarah’s sunshine
Feels so warm against my skin
Holding on to Sarah’s sunshine
And thinking of what could have been
Track Name: Say I Love You
Say I Love You
Written by: Clay Bell

Well it just hit me
Now I know
That you and I are through
For the days we have spent
And everything we meant
I’ll cherish through & through

So I must say
That I won’t regret a single day
Of time spent with you.
And as a matter of fact
Just glad I got the chance
To say I love you.

It all happened so fast
I nearly missed my chance
But now I’ve turned back around
But I won’t bear the weight
Of a single thought of hate
With regards to you

So I must say
That I won’t regret a single day
Of time spent with you.
And as a matter of fact
Just glad I got the chance
To say I love you.
To say I love you.
To say I love you.
