best friend (i was about to be)
music and lyrics by rob goraieb
2001 i'm not givin' up, smedley music (bmi), butterfly road music (bmi)


did you call me on the phone
i never am alone
i was about to be your best friend

i'm not one-inch tall
i love people
it's the public i can't stand

oh yeah
take me by the hand
weatherman

did you leave me out of touch
i always talk too much
i was about to show all the gold

i'm not feeling free for all
i love simple
i'm about your biggest fan

make it happen
music and lyrics by rob goraieb
2001 i'm not givin' up, smedley music (bmi), butterfly road music (bmi)

make it happen
it's up to you
see it clearly
see it through
don't look back now
it's all the same
make it happen

oh-oh here's another day when
oh-oh you make it happen
go-oh and make it happen

here's to the one that got away
one more reason
here to say
get together
and by chance
make it happen

thin
music and lyrics by rob goraieb
2001 i'm not givin' up, smedley music (bmi), butterfly road music (bmi)


i want to sleep late
won't go in to work today
cause i feel thin
i want to do myself in
i love when it rains
it's god's way of keeping me company
another place
a new face for the human race

and don't you know
they'll never sell your soul
and don't you feel
that everything is real
and don't you find
they'll never change your mind
and i said you and i
are never gonna change the world

not mad anymore
anger is such a bore
don't be a pen
they write you off on the other end
you're on your own
now you're the king of the castle
here's a chance
to finally be what you never can

take it all today, a better way to play

and the moment comes to the man
with a better plan in hand

cause you and i
might just change the world

stay together now forever

i feel free
music and lyrics by rob goraieb
2001 i'm not givin' up, smedley music (bmi), butterfly road music (bmi)


and don't it feel the same
when i was young you played
a role that in my life lasts forever

you made it hard to find
yet the treasure was mine
you're the keeper of
all time and temperance

and what can i say
without going on forever
cause everyone can see
that i feel free

and may it never change
how you weather through the maze
surprise time again
without pretending

author of the past
the cynic pressed to last
a reason left for all
who join the movement

waiting high above the clouds
waiting to be shown around
waiting high above the clouds
for blue skies

the makings of you pass
for no one can express
for what you leave this time's
without pretending

and i rebuild it all
so you can stand tall

big nothing
music and lyrics by rob goraieb
2001 i'm not givin' up, smedley music (bmi), butterfly road music (bmi)


in love at last with all of the past
it's so profound to walk from a crowd
a forty-five spins from back when

cause i don't know why
i waited so long
to tell you that i
i don't belong

all around the world the time has come
for everyone to walk into the sun
what i'd do to prove it all to you
a second time around to be someone
this time has made me strong

welcome the last third-class view
here comes the face
disguised for disgrace
a big nothing is one you can believe

number one
music and lyrics by rob goraieb
2001 i'm not givin' up, smedley music (bmi), butterfly road music (bmi)


remember when your legend began
they said your star was all right then
up to the sky you took it far
but today you're where you are
yeah today you're where you are

time to join the commoners
the view down here is very clear
time to throw in the towel
all dried-up is where you're now
yeah all dried-up is where you're now

i'll remember for you
here's to a world that you knew
it would have been oh so nice
to have traded places with you
staring down from the sun
as the world's number one
to blind all the normal people
when the day is done

so pack your bags and so it goes
you've been replaced as our heroes
you should have went out on top
only you went for the drop
yeah only you went for the drop

there are things i'd like to say
still you're up there today
and though my lows don't seem as bad
your one-up will make you glad
yeah your one-up will make you glad

never know what it holds
when you're rich your future folds
at least for most but not for some
but i'll be here when you're done
yeah i'll be here when you're done
yeah i'm here number one

ocean
music and lyrics by rob goraieb
2001 i'm not givin' up, smedley music (bmi), butterfly road music (bmi)


your heart is like an ocean
drown me and come in closer

cause i feel far from where you are
everything i entertain
i want you back more than me

sunday free from the devil
the sky is like a playground
and i won't come down

if i fell into electric wire
it would do me good
i feel wired
in this day alone
at last you speak to me

the royal circle
music and lyrics by rob goraieb
2001 i'm not givin' up, smedley music (bmi), butterfly road music (bmi)


saw you just the other day
sorry that i turned and walked away
but your memory is hard to face

to be someone believes too much
to forgive is never far from us
it's getting better than this bitterness

so down with the serene
you made a fool of me

and i know tomorrow
the royal circle
comes around to
surround you
and i know tomorrow
the royal circle
drowns you

now i hear and see your voice
it speaks to me
and whispers in the noise
as if we never had to fill a void

and so it's said you had your chance
now you've made your bed
and lied in it
now it's time to join the movement

forever
music by rob goraieb and rob laufer
lyrics by rob goraieb
2001 i'm not givin' up, smedley music (bmi), butterfly road music (bmi), earth's ear (ascap)


did you mean to be so true
i owe it all to you
the ever-changing face
has said goodbye to me

yeah i feel so strong
i'm holding on
cause i can feel forever

if i knew what i know now
i'd see it all work out
my way on up to you
is so like lovers do

today i feel this strength
where nothing takes your place
it's us against the world
i'll never leave you girl

everybody hides a face
music and lyrics by rob goraieb
2001 i'm not givin' up, smedley music (bmi), butterfly road music (bmi)


don't believe that you know
everything there's to know
'cause i can feel the glamour fade
all your money for your fame

'cause everybody hides a face
that everybody can't replace
don't you know there's a better view
of everything ever inside of you

don't believe what you've got
will make a difference to the plot
a viewer of the humankind
ain't much better than the blind

no one ever knew your name
no one ever saw your face
but you were there just the same
rise and recognize your place
