Track Name: Turn Around
Did I see you again yesterday?
Will I see you again today?
And if you look at my face
And you take me by the hand
Will you tell me just where I stand?

And if I gave you just a little more time
I don't think you would pay any mind
And if I tried with all my might
I bet you'd leave me lonely
Lonely like every time

(Chorus)
I wanna make you turn around
I wanna know that I was right
And who is being the fool?
And who's gonna make it all right?

(Bridge)
And if I could make you stop
And if you could make you stop
I don't want the same old story
I just want you to see
Just what you mean to me

(Chorus)

Track Name: Lightning Never Strikes Twice
I'm sitting all alone in a hotel room
Right next door to the ice machine
I've been thinking about an old tune
About a rock and roll queen
Singing all about how she'd be so nice
And about falling in love for the first time
And looking for that first little star that shines

But I'm still waking up every morning
Feeling about as cold as ice
And I've been watching the sun dawning
Lord, I'm payin' the price
Lord, I'm payin' the price

And I used to sing 'cause I had something to say
Tryin' to keep my sanity from slipping away
But sometimes it just don't work out that way

But now I'm out in the road alone
Singin' about how she'd be so nice
But deep in my heart I know
Lightning never strikes twice

Track Name: Vision Of Paradise
He spent his entire life
Being told what to do
And he's looking behind himself
In some cracked rear view
Mirror, don't always show
What's true
And he's waitin' on the morning
When he's off to chase his vision of
Paradise

It's been a long time comin'
But quickly, it's becoming true
And to our eyes
It's coming into view
Clearer, unto a heart
Untrue
And we're waitin' on the morning
When we're off to chase our vision of
Paradise

There's a life that I've been livin'
Always trying to pull through
And I see myself
In this cracked rear view
Mirror, don't always show
What's true
And here comes the morning
When we're off to chase our vision of
Paradise
