Track Name: I'm Home
I'm Home
(Cherie Call)

Storms are beating at the door
But they can't reach me anymore
The stove is warm, the sheets are clean
And a fire is burning, it burns for you
I'm home, I'm home

Oceans tempt me to set my sails
But the invitation fails
The shades are drawn, the lights are low
And my heart is yearning, it beats for you
I'm home, I'm home

So if you want to be a vagabond, if you want to roll like a stone
Do what you have to do
If you want to find the answers, if you want to find yourself
I hope you find 'em in the place where I am too

Life is hard even when you're strong
You've got to find the place where you belong
Strangers call and lovers woo
And my world is turning, it spins for you
I'm home, I'm home
I'm home
Track Name: It Isn't Your Song
It Isn't Your Song
(Cherie Call)

Once upon a time I turned the TV on
Because it didn't play your song like my mind always seemed to do
And once upon a time I used to keep from sleep
Because I dreamt too deep about the times when I was with you
And in the background was that song again
I can't fight it anymore, so I'll pretend that

Chorus:
It isn't your song and I don't fall apart
Or melt to the madness of the breaking of my heart
I won't skip a beat when the first note plays
Or crumble down to the floor
Because it isn't your song, it isn't your song anymore.

Once upon a time I used to love that song
Before it all went wrong, before I ever laid eyes on you and
Once upon a time it used to make me dance
It made me want romance
And you walked in right on cue
And then the credits rolled and we were through
So the one thing left to do is take it back from you, so

(repeat chorus)

I'm gonna sing it half a million times at a karaoke bar
I'm gonna wave my phone while a superstar sings it live
I'm gonna play it on repeat until it doesn't get to me
As if I'm the one
As if I'm the one who decides that

(repeat chorus)
Track Name: Making Peace With A Dream That Won't Come True
Making Peace With A Dream That Won't Come True
(Cherie Call)

You're the guy who's always on the run
I tried to catch you baby, just for fun
I stood and waited right outside your door
And I tried to call it fate when you knocked me to the floor

Chorus:
I tried to make you love me and you thought you could
You divied up your heart the way you thought you should
And I held it all together with staples and glue
Now I'm making peace with a dream that won't come true

Some people dream they're gonna walk on Mars
Or climb up a mountain till they touch the stars
Or dive to the bottom of the ocean blue
My big dream was being perfect for you

(repeat chorus)

When you couldn't be a lover
I became a fighter
You dimmed your torch
I burned mine brighter
Then I lost my will
And you wouldn't lift a finger
Now our love is gonna be
A dream without a dreamer

I'm no quitter but I've had enough
I've got a stack of better dreams to love
Right now that's exactly what I'm gonna do
Now that I'm not so busy chasing after you

(repeat chorus)
Track Name: The Day The Stars Came Down
The Day The Stars Came Down
(Cherie Call)

I wrote the story of our love
On a great big piece of paper
And I cut it up in little stars
So nobody would know who you are
Because they didn't want to hear it anymore
I should have long since given up
But I held you in my heart through it all
And I stuck those stars all over every wall

And I wished upon them for the day that you'd return
You'd remember what you missed
And you would come back for my kiss
I kept surrounded by my emptiness and hope
Shining at me all around
Till the day the stars came down

I still believed that you would call
But when you did it took me by surprise
When you told you had planned your wedding day
You couldn't see me wipe the tears away
And I didn't want to hear it anymore
But I let you be the first one to hang up
I thanked you for the good news and the call
And I just stared up at those stars upon my wall

Cause I I had wished upon them for the day that you'd return
You'd remember what you missed
You wouldn't break my heart like this
I kept surrounded by my emptiness and hope
Shining at me all around
Till the day the stars came down

One by one I took them down and I threw them all away
And I opened up my heart to a clean slate
And all at once I looked outside and I finally saw the light
Of real stars shining down through the night

And now I wish upon them for a love that's meant to be
And I try to wish you well
I still remember how I fell
But I am thankful when your name gets thrown around
All around this little town
For the day the stars came down
Track Name: I Am A Homeless Song
I Am a Homeless Song
(Cherie Call)

I am a melody, I am a mystery
Somebody wrote me down, I have a history
But I am not on a landmark record
That people write about in Rolling Stone
I am alone

I am a homeless song, I am a homeless song
They try to put me on the perfect playlist but I don't belong
And I'll I really need is for you to listen to me
And if you get to know me well I'll let you sing along
I am a homeless song

When all my words get out, they're gonna want to touch your mouth
I'm broken and I'm still a mess, but isn't that what love's about?
You're gonna wonder how I know your story
And you'll discover when your mind gets blown
You're not alone

I am a homeless song, I am a homeless song
They try to pitch me to the famous singer but I don't belong
And all I really need is for you to listen to me
And if you get to know me well I'll let you sing along
I am a homeless song

You don't have to say that I'm your favorite
You don't even have to know my name
You don't have to try to make me famous
Just play me
Play me

I am a homeless song, I am a homeless song
They try to put me in a romance movie but I don't belong
And all I really need is for you to listen to me
And if you get to know me well I'll let you sing along with me
I am a homeless song, I am a homeless song
I am a homeless song, I am a homeless song
Track Name: Love Me If You Can
Love Me If You Can
(Cherie Call)

Tonight I tried to write the perfect song of love
But all the words I sang were blue
Because I've tried and I've tried to win you over
And I've done the best that I can do
So we may never be together
But my heart is in your hands
And if you ever think about me in your long lost dreams
Love me if you can

I know that you've moved on, it's what you had to do
I never had the chance to say goodbye
It's on my list of all the things I never said
It goes on for pages and it keeps me up at night

And my heart is missing pieces that only you could understand
And if you ever think about it in your long lost dreams
Love me if you can

So this song I sing is a little sad and it's unrehearsed
I just hope you hear that this broken life has had a second verse

Cause in those days gone by I tried to build you castles
And maybe they just turned to sand
But if you can only love who you wished I could have been
I wish you knew it's finally who I am
I remember how you needed me
And I know yesterday will never come again
But if you feel me reaching for you in your long lost dreams
Love me if you can

If you feel me reaching for you in your long lost dreams
Love me if you can
Track Name: Stronger Than I Was Before
Stronger Than I Was Before
(Cherie Call)

I threw away my pride
I crumbled down and cried
But I'm stronger than I was before
I didn't win the prize
But I am still alive
And I'm stronger than I was before

I am stronger, so much stronger
I am stronger than I was before
I can't say that I won the fight
But I think I'm gonna be alright
It's not gonna hurt me anymore

I held on for so long
And still I got wrong
But I'm stronger than I was before
I made a bad mistake
I knew my heart would break
But I'm stronger than I was before

I am stronger, so much stronger
I am stronger than I was before
I can't say that I won the fight
But I think I'm gonna be alright
It's not gonna hurt me anymore

Nobody's gonna hoist me on their shoulders
When all I am is older and wiser than yesterday
You may never see the way these things have changed me
Or how my struggles saved me
They're gonna save me anyway

It used to worry me
To take a little leap
But I'm stronger than I was before
I have met defeat
And now it won't scare me
Cause I'm stronger than I was before

I am stronger, so much stronger
I am stronger than I was before
I can't say that I won the fight
But I think I'm gonna be alright
It's not gonna hurt me anymore

I'm stronger than I was before
Track Name: Big Yellow Moon
Big Yellow Moon
(Cherie Call)

You can walk me home if you want to
It's not that far
Walk me home
Nights like these were never made for driving in cars
We could count the sidewalk cracks
Or wish on mars
Walk me home, walk me home

Chorus:
There's a big yellow moon in the sky tonight
And it's just about to pass us by
And it's just the sort of night that was made for three
You and the big yellow moon and me

You can hold my hand if you want to
While we walk home
Or you can walk the other way if you'd rather be alone
But think of all the things that we will never know
Walk me home, walk me home

(repeat chorus)

Tomorrow will keep, whether or not we get any sleep
Tell me I'm right, that walking home was made for evenings just like tonight
Cause it seems so right

(repeat chorus)
Track Name: Marry Me
Marry Me
(Cherie Call)

Baby is it time to set the date
I'm shaking and my heart can hardly wait
And everybody wants to know the fate
Of this forever
You can wear a suit and I'll wear white
We'll make your mom and daddy dance all night
Underneath the stars that shine so bright
When we're together

And at the end of that day
With the rice on the floor and the friends gone away
All that will matter to me is you
It's meant to be
Marry me

Baby when you finally wear my ring
I'm gonna hear a thousand angels sing
With heaven in the distance echoing
So sweetly
Your sister's gonna wear a satin dress
The cake is gonna make a great big mess
My mother's gonna cry when you confess
That you need me

And at the end of that day
When we walk out the door and you whisk me away
All that will matter to me is you
It's meant to be
Marry me

It doesn't have to be in June
Just promise that a million days from now
Will be a day I'm still with you

And at the end of that day
If the stars are in flames and the world's gone away
All that will matter to me is you
It's meant to be
Marry me
Track Name: The Fall
Summertime is in all the love songs
And summertime is when I fell for you
But summertime never lasts forever
And wintertime is when things usually fall through

Chorus:
I was ready for the heartbreak conversation
I was ready for a "Sorry, see you later"
And I was ready for some sad midnight telephone call
I just wasn't ready for the fall

Summer days were so soft and dreamy
Weeks flew by and we fell in love so fast
But cooler winds only drew you closer
I never knew that such a perfect love could last

(repeat chorus)

You're still here, you're still here

And I fall for you, over and over
Like the leaves letting go in a wild October storm
But when the winds slow down and the cold moves in
You'll still be there to keep me warm

(repeat chorus)

I'll get ready for the winter and the fire
I'll get ready for the springtime and desire
And every summer I'll be glad you can hold me through it all
Hold me and help me through the fall

(repeat)
Track Name: Sweet, Sweet Dreams
Sweet, Sweet Dreams
by Cherie Call

Verse 1:
Cowboys and dandelions
Popcorn and butterflies
Magic carpets and purple kites
Can't wait for you to arrive
Just put on your cape and fly down the hall
To the second snore on the right
This is bound to be a beautiful night

Chorus:
In your sweet, sweet dreams
You can do anything
When you sleep in the language of angels
Children are kings and queens
In your sweet, sweet dreams

Verse 2:
Monsters and big brown bears
Never make reservations there
Scrapes and bruises and hurts and tears
Haven't been seen for years
And fire engines are just big red trucks
That men in red hats like to drive
This is bound to be the time of your life

Chorus:
In your sweet, sweet dreams
You can do anything
When you sleep in the language of angels
Children are kings and queens
In your sweet, sweet dreams

Bridge:
Don't you fear
I will be right here
When the dreamland sunlight train brings you home

Chorus:
In your sweet, sweet dreamsYou can do anything
When you sleep in the language of angels
Children are kings and queens
In your sweet, sweet dreams
