Track Name: There There (John Torres) - No Time For Yesterday
No Time For Yesterday
By: John Torres
Copyright 2005 John Torres Music

V1
This could set you free and we would live
Like perfect people in this kingdom
And we would never die,
we’d never even wonder why we have this freedom
And this is not the end it’s the beginning
Of forever this is heaven
So stop your wondering, say goodbye to all the worry that
Your Life has Given

V2
We’re moving at a faster rate than we can
Stop and contemplate it’s magic
And at this speed Oh I can see us
Living in a world that isn’t tragic
Cause lying on the floor I wondered
What’s beyond the door how could it hurt me
To feel so right despite the wrong
But in your arms I know you won’t desert me

Pre
So Don’t turn around because you see the sun go down upon you
You hear the sound but can you be the essence of the music
Don’t close your eyes and make believe that you’re forgotten
We’ve got not time for yesterday (no time for yesterday)

Ch
Let’s go out and see the world
I can show you how
Tell me where you want to go
You can be there now
There’s so much more for you to see if only you would just believe that
There is life that’s waiting to be lived
Oh, Don’t give that up for yesterday

V3
Could it be that all of this is happening because there is a reason
And does the weather change as if to tell us that this too is just a season.
Cause something seems a little strange about the patterns that I see emerging.
And though I might be slow at times I know inside this fire still is burning

Pre
Don’t turn around because you see the sun go down upon you
You hear the sound but can you be the essence of the music
Don’t close your eyes and make believe that you’re forgotten
We’ve got not time for yesterday (no time for yesterday)

Ch
Let’s go out and see the world
I can show you how
Tell me where you want to go
You can be there now
There’s so much more for you to see if only you would just believe that
There is life that’s waiting to be lived
Oh, Don’t give that up for yesterday

Comply

V1
It’s another fine day to try to make sense of where you are and where you’re going.
And it’s another fine moment to set your sails. You will not fail. The wind is blowing.
And there’s a fresh opportunity at your door it isn’t trying to sell you something.
And if you let the opportunity pass you by it might forever leave you wondering.

Pre 1
And it’s you that must comply.
And I’ll be on your side.
I’ll be cheering you on.

V2
I can see it in your eyes, you are screaming inside, but you’re smiling on the surface.
There’s a fire in you heart and you’re coming apart at the seams like you’re getting nervous.
But there’s a fresh opportunity at your door and it’s calling you directly.
And if you let the opportunity leave your door you will be missing out completely.

Pre 1
And it’s you that must comply.
And we’ll be on your side.
I’ll be cheering you on.

CH1
On and on all through the night, I’ll love you and I’ll hold you tight.
There isn’t any need to fight what’s going on inside you.
On and on I’ll point your way. There’s really nothing more to say.
The distance is too far away if I’m not here beside you. (Repeat)
Track Name: There There (John Torres) - Maybe
Maybe
By: John Torres
Copyright 2006 John Torres

V1
Maybe we could be movie stars and never show the tears
Maybe we could be millionaires and buy away our fears
Maybe things would better if we weren’t growing old each year

Maybe it would be easier if everything were free
And all our problems were solved like half an hour on T.V.
Maybe you would be happier if you had never talked to me

V2
Maybe I’d write a story about a man who lost his way
And I could live in a country where the words are hard to say
And maybe no one would notice if I slowly drift away
Oh but I’d miss you
I’d miss you

Ch
Maybe this is just a warning sign
And maybe
Maybe this is just a state of mind
And maybe
Maybe if we look then we might find
That we don’t want these maybes
Maybe we should call it quits today
And maybe
Maybe we’d regret the things we say
And Maybe
Maybe we were meant to always stay together
We don’t need these maybes
Maybe

V3
You see I’m tired of talking now
It’s time to go to bed
And all the worries and problems have their party in my head
But still I can’t help but wonder about those wise words that I read
They said maybe
“Maybe this is all a dream”

Ch
Maybe this is just a warning sign
And maybe
Maybe this is just a state of mind
And maybe
Maybe if we look then we might find
That we don’t want these maybes
Maybe we should call it quits today
And maybe
Maybe we’d regret the things we say
And Maybe
Maybe we were meant to always stay together
We don’t need these maybes
Maybe

Outro
Maybe we don’t need your maybes
Maybe this is how it should be (repeat)
Track Name: There There (John Torres) - Your Life
Your Life
By: John Torres

V1
I have no answers to all of my questions
And I don’t have an outfit for every occasion
And I hate to say it but I just don’t feel so free
Who is the captain and who gives the orders
And where are my limits and who draws the borders
And why can’t I be more than what you’ll let me be.

CH
Cause I don’t wanna waste my time
Living someone else’s life
And I don’t care
I don’t mind
Tell me what you find when you get there
I don’t wanna waste my time
Saying sorry for my crimes
And I don’t care
I don’t mind
My mistakes are mine.

V2
We’re right on time
Just like they expected
And we’re so afraid that the might have detected
That we didn’t follow the instructions perfectly
We’re really sorry if we cause a scene
And we really hope that we didn’t seem mean
But we’re tired of trying
Tired of trying to save face


CH
Cause we don’t wanna waste our time
Living someone else’s life
And we don’t care
We don’t mind
Tell us what you find when you get there
I don’t wanna waste my time
Saying sorry for my crimes
And I don’t care
I don’t mind
My mistakes are mine.


Outro:
You can do what you like with your story
You can live if you want for your glory
I’m not gonna go your way
I won’t trade away my days
(You can do what you like. You can do what you like)
(It’s your life. It’s your life)
Track Name: There There (John Torres) - Stay With Me
Stay With Me
By: John Torres
Copyright 2005 John Torres Music

V1
It’s been 14 days since you went your own way
And I guess you don’t have anything to say
So perhaps I thought much more of what we had
Cause I didn’t think that it was all that bad
Was that only me

Ch
And was it me that made believe
That there was something in the breeze
To make me wanna make you stay with me
And was I blinded by your smile
Did you just love me for a while
To make me wanna make you stay with me

V2
You’ve requested that I stay your smiling friend
But I can’t remember how to make pretend
And I just can’t change the way I feel inside
So I guess I’ll do my best to run and hide
(don’t we own that to each other)

Ch
And was it me that made believe
That there was something in the breeze
To make me wanna make you stay with me
And was I blinded by your smile
Did you bring heaven for a while
To make me wanna make you stay with me
And was it me that made believe
That there was something in the breeze
To make me wanna make you stay with me
And was I blinded by your smile
Did you just love me for a while
To make me wanna make you stay with me
Stay with me
Stay with me
Track Name: There There (John Torres) - Transparent
Transparent
By: John Torres
Copyright 2006 John Torres

V1
I could tell you everything that I feel
I could even swear it’s real
And you’d believe me
I could show you all that lies in my heart
You could sift through every part before you leave me

Pre
Oh no, I don’t stand a chance
I won’t make the grade
There’s too much I’m revealing
I can’t keep it in
I keep spilling out
While you’re there concealing

Ch
Well it doesn’t
No it doesn’t
Oh it doesn’t
It doesn’t pay to be transparent
You know it doesn’t
I’m sure it doesn’t
It doesn’t pay to be transparent

V2
Strap me to your table, cut me up
Put two dollars in the cup
That’s your kind donation
You can point at all my insides now
I can even show you how
If it’s for education

Pre
Cause I, I don’t stand a chance
I won’t make the grade
There’s too much I’m revealing
Oh I, I can’t keep it in
I keep spilling out
While you’re there concealing

Ch
Well it doesn’t
No it doesn’t
Oh it doesn’t
It doesn’t pay to be transparent
You know it doesn’t
I’m sure it doesn’t
It doesn’t pay to be transparent

First of All
Words and Music By: John Torres

V1
If you could see all that is lying in wait
Would you still believe you were the victim of fate?
All by yourself, all you can hear is your voice.
Glued to your chair, can’t see the power of choice.

Ch
I can’t seem to go on my own. Why must I remain all alone.
You whisper your wisdom in song.
And it’s alright if you know that first of all you were all
wrong.

V2
Finally I see, you’ve always been at my side.
When all of this time I made believe you had died.
If I survive, swear I won’t do this again.
Wish we could change. Wish I could call you my friend.


Ch2
But oh, how could I think it okay?
What made me believe in this way?
You whisper your wisdom in song.
Still it’s alright Now I know that first of all I was all
wrong
Track Name: Where We Are
Where We Are
By: John Torres
Copyright 2006 John Torres

V1
We ran toward the mountain
We talked in their language
We looked like your children
We learned all your answers

We stayed in your castle
We dressed in your armor
We sang all your music
But still we are wandering

Ch
And we don’t really know where we are,
Don’t really know where we
Are you gonna show us?
Will we ever know us?
We don’t really know where we are,
Don’t really know where we
Are you gonna show us?
Will we ever know at all?

V2
Well they have the power
And they’ve got the answers
And they’re on the T.V.
While we’re coming after

And they are the drivers
And they’re in the cockpit
While we’re running forward
But still we are wandering


Ch
And we don’t really know where we are,
Don’t really know where we
Are you gonna show us?
Will we ever know us?
We don’t really know where we are,
Don’t really know where we
Are you gonna show us?
Will we ever know us at…

We don’t really know where we are,
Don’t really know where we
Are you gonna show us?
Will we ever know us at…

We don’t really know where we are,
Don’t really know where we
Are you gonna show us?
Will we ever know us at all?

The Best In Me
By: John Torres
Copyright 2005 John Torres Music

V1
I can tell you that I feel it growing inside my heart
And I’m a bit afraid because I don’t know exactly what it is
I never spared a second thought about someone else
Now I seem to think about the way my actions affect you

Pre
And you treat me how you’d like to be treated
And you make sure you’re the last to be seated
And I can’t tell you where you get your passion
But you amaze me

V2
For someone so simple you’ve got lots of heavy language
And I’m afraid because I don’t know exactly what you mean
When you say that there is something lingering around me
And I could be a million dollars freer without money
I don’t want to admit oh you’re onto something
I’m just so scared of what “something” might do to me
Take it all away, won’t you take my every idol
You keep my glory oh you take my titles

Ch
Cause you, you bring out the best in me
You, you bring out the best in me
And I can’t tell you how you do what you do to me
Oh but now, now I can’t tell you with certainty
You amaze me

V3
It isn’t very hard to see that you have been gifted
And I can say that I don’t know exactly what this means
I don’t want to lie to you cause you see right through me
And it wouldn’t do a lot of good if you turned away now

Pre
And you treat me how you’d like to be treated
And you make sure you’re the last to be seated
And I can’t tell you where you get your passion
But you amaze me

Ch
you, you bring out the best in me
You, you bring out the best in me
And I can’t tell you how you do what you do to me

Oh but you treat me how you’d like to be treated
And you make sure you’re the last to be seated
And I can’t tell you where you get your passion
But you amaze me
