Track Name: When You Run
When You Run
Ted Wulfers

I look to the sun and wash the rainy days out of my eyes
You, you were the one who really made my spirit come alive
And I would like to see you again
And you were my friend

I can see you when the wind is blowin’
I can see you when you walk away
I can see you when the wind is blowin’
I can see you when you walk away
When you walk away, when you walk away
When you run
When you walk away, when you walk away
When you run

Times, they’re getting’ hard
Every now and then they come around
It’s time to take charge
‘Cause nothing’s ever gonna bring us down
‘Cause you and I we’ve been up to the mountain
‘Cause you and I we’ve been over the sea
You and I will always live forever
You and I will always be free
When you run, you take my breath away

I can see you when the wind is blowin’
I can see you when you walk away
I can see you when the wind is blowin’
I can see you when you walk away
When you walk away, when you walk away
When you run
When you walk away, when you walk away
When you run
When you walk away, when you walk away
When you run

Track Name: Dreams Come True
Dreams Come True
Ted Wulfers
Well here we are, goin’ through the madness
Tryin’ to find a lil’ bit of gladness
Something good to get us through
Yeah, here we are, goin’ through the phases
Flips of the coin, good luck and graces
A bit of the old, a bit of the new

Life goes on, on and on
There’s something for me and you

Dreams come true for little boys
Grow up to be men and still play with toys
Work real hard and pay their dues
Dreams come true for little bitty girls
Grow on up and be women of the world
Just doin’ whatever they choose

Yeah we work so hard to make this money
You step back and the whole thing’s funny
What’s that gonna getcha when you’re through?
Yeah we all try hard to be good people
In temples and bars and pretty church steeples
I’d rather think, “what would Elvis do?”

Chorus

Round and round, there she goes
Where she stops, no one knows
Nobody knows

It’s that farm bred kid called up to the majors
The girl elected to write legislature
Yeah, we even put a guy on the moon
It’s that little girl who wants to do this
The little boy who wants to do that
Just doin’ what they want to do

Dreams come true for little boys
Grow up to be men and still play with toys
Work real hard and pay their dues
Dreams come true for little bitty girls
Grow on up and be women of the world
Put a white dress on and say I do
Dreams come true, yeah they do
Dreams come true, for me and you
Dreams come true

Me & Miss 4th of July
Ted Wulfers

Four hours outside of San Francisco
I met a girl who reminded me of you
She was runnin’ wild outta Broken Arrow
Singin’ a song that was red, white and blue

Here we are tonight, there’s no place for us to get high
Me & Miss 4th of July

Don’t the sun look bright on a Thursday mornin’
Brushing back the hair from your eyes
California girls come with a warnin’
So sugar sweet and full of surprise

Here we are tonight, there’s no place for us to get high
Me & Miss 4th of July

Well you can take a bus, a car, a train
A plane or palomino
Where do you go?
Maybe down to Mexico
I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know where to go

And so what if I like to dream (I like to dream, I like to dream)
Yeah so what if life’s a dream (Yeah so what if life’s a dream)
Yeah so what if I like to dream

Four hours outside of San Francisco
I met a girl who reminded me of you
She was runnin’ wild outta Broken Arrow
Singin’ a song that was red, white and blue

Here we are tonight, there’s no place for us to get high
Me & Miss 4th of July
Here we are tonight, there’s no place for us to get high
Me & Miss 4th of July, 4th of July

More Than A Mystery

Your love is more than a mystery, the writing’s on the wall
Kiss me, let’s make a history, see where we fall
You come whenever it feels good, you go when you please
So come on, let’s make it real good, I’m down on my knees

Baby, everything is change, everything is strange
But you stayed the same, you stayed the same

Close your eyes and tell me a story, the kind I like to hear
Wake up, mornin’ glory, dry your tears

Baby, everything is change, everything is strange
But you stayed the same, you stayed the same

More than a mystery, more damage done
More than a mystery, oh but so much fun

You are a gift to the lonely, an apple to the eye
Your love is more than a mystery and only you know why

Baby, everything is change, everything is strange
Oh, baby, everything is change, everything is strange
But you stayed the same, you stayed the same
Oh and it makes you wonder
You stayed the same oh, and it makes you wonder

Stay (For A Lil’ While)
Ted Wulfers

Well it’s the Tuesday mornin’ after I got lost in the rafters
The laughter of a love that wasn’t meant to be
But I gave you all I got in the Guitar Center parking lot
So much for broken dreams

So why don’t you stay for a lil’ while?
Why don’t you play here with me?
We can laugh, we can cry, we can stay up all night
Why don’t you stay for one more smile?

Bob Dylan gets me thinkin’ and Tom Waits gets me drinkin’
My heart is sinkin’ when it comes to lovin’ you
But you know I’m still willin’ and your lovin’ ‘s so thrillin’
Honey you could make a killin’ doin’ the things you do

So why don’t you stay for a lil’ while?
Why don’t you play here with me?
We can laugh, we can cry, we can stay up all night
Why don’t you stay for one more smile?

Well you know that it’s true and you know that you want to
So why don’t you stay?

We can laugh, we can cry, we can stay up all night
Why don’t you stay for one more smile?
Why don’t you stay for a lil’ while?
Why don’t you play here with me?
We can laugh, we can cry, we can stay up all night
Why don’t you stay for one more smile?

What R U Doin’ 2 Nite?
Ted Wulfers

Well the voice inside my head said you’d better introduce yourself
She’s pretty good lookin’ and she’s lookin’ your way
So I followed the suggestion and ditched my lack of confidence
An’ ordered up a smile and I asked you your name
And you get that funny feelin’ when you meet somebody special
Like everything’s gonna be alright
And you find yourself a chance or the right opportunity
The beg of the question, what r u doin’ 2 nite?

‘Cause I need some company and some better conversation
Than the voice in my head and his witty insights
Yeah I need someone to get to know, I need someone to hold me
Hey babe, what r u doin’ 2 nite?

What r u doin’ 2 nite?
Do you have someone special?
Do you have somewhere better you need to go?
Well if the answer is yes, then you better get goin’
But please stick around if the answer is no

We never had it so good like I knew we would, oh, oh

But it’s gettin’ pretty late even though I am used to it
We drank all the stories and talked all the wine
But there’s just one thing before you go
There’s just one thing I gotta know
Hey babe, what r u doin’ 2 nite?

What r u doin’ 2 nite?
Do you have someone special?
Do you have somewhere better you need to go?
Well if the answer is yes, then you better get goin’
But please stick around if the answer is no
Yeah please stick around if the answer is no

Friday night I’m all alone, don’t feel like goin’ to the movies

And I got a full tank, a full tank of beer
Don’t try to pass me Mr. Mollasses, NO!
‘Cause in a flash babe, I’m outta here, gone

Friday night I’m all alone, don’t feel like goin’ to the movies
