Track Name: Tell Me Why
I met him on a rainy night
He offered me a ride
I appreciate staying dry
So I climbed inside
He took me to a dinner and dance
I had a great time
And over the months
He fell in love
So why can’t I
Feel the same Way?

Tell me why (I can not tell you why)
Tell me why (I can not tell you why)
Tell me why (I can not tell you why)
I can’t fall in love

The flowers came every day
I had to send them back
I told him to move on
He told me I was it
He was so in love
So why wasn’t I?

Tell me why (I can not tell you why)
Tell me why (I can not tell you why)
Tell me why (I can not tell you why)
I can’t fall in love

We’ve heard it all before, it’s not you, it’s me

Tell me why (I can not tell you why)
Tell me why (I can not tell you why)
Tell me why (I can not tell you why)
I can’t fall in love

Track Name: City Boy Haircut
I like his style, I like his smile
I like his city boy haircut alright

I like his talk, I like his walk
I like his city boy haircut alright

It suits him fine (fine fine, I think he’s fine)
I want to be the one who calls him mine
(Mine mine, I’ll make him mine)
I think he’s fine (fine fine, I think he’s fine)

I don’t mind the top down on his car
It blows his city boy haircut around
I take the seat, right by him and
His city boy haircut, alright

It suits him fine (fine fine, I think he’s fine)
I want to be the one who calls him mine
(Mine mine, I’ll make him mine)
I think he’s fine (fine fine, I think he’s fine)

I’ll make him mine (I’ll make him mine)
I’ll make him mine (I’ll make him mine)
I’ll make him mine (I’ll make him mine)
I’ll make him mine (I’ll make him mine)
I’ll make him mine (I’ll make him mine)
Track Name: Tiki House
I don’t have any prospects in the winter
I prefer the warmer time of year

I don’t want to live in an igloo
I’d rather live in a tiki house

Green grass hides under ten feet of snow
And the sun doesn’t even bother to show

I don’t want to live in an igloo
I’d rather live in a tiki house

I don’t care for seven layers of clothing
I’m fine with one for each day of the week

I don’t want to live in an igloo
I’d rather live in a tiki house

I don’t want to live in an igloo
I’d rather live in a tiki house
Track Name: Didn’t Know His Name
She didn’t know his name
He was just someone she thought about
Would it be the same
If she had come to know him
Was it fantasy
Or did she really care
As she built him up
Only to tear him down

All of time seemed to pass him by
When he came to meet her eye

He always passed her by
But she never spoke to him
She was terrified
Easier to turn away
As the sun would rise
It just as easy fell
And she wondered if
He could ever feel the same

All of time seemed to pass him by
When he came to meet her eye
