Track Name: At My Friend's Place
At my friend's place
They've got some cats and they've got a guitar
Sometimes we get together
To play some boardgames
We get in our car
It's not very far
To my friend's house across the way
For another magical day
We couldn't hardly stay away
At my friend's place
They've got some cats and they've got a guitar
When they invite us over
We stop what we're doing
We get in our car
It's not very far
Track Name: Growing Beards
Growing old and growing beards
Was my plan all along
To sit out on the lawn
With a glass of tea
And my family too
Although they never knew
Whether I could grow a beard or not
And I never told you
Because I never knew
Whether or not I could grow a beard
Whether or not I could grow a beard
Track Name: The Moves We Had
It took every dance move that we had
Made us feel sorrowful then glad
All the classic styles
And every passing fad
All of the moves that we had

We continued dancing into the night
The moon had gently given us it's light
Grappling with our styles
Trying to get them right
All the way through the night

When we reached the breaking of the dawn
All of our fears were finally gone
Track Name: Unicorn Castle
Baby unicorn and the mommy unicorn
Lived in a castle a long long time ago
Not too far from there
Was a fearsome dragon's lair
Hidden away in a tiny mountain of snow
(But)
One day, as fortunes turn
The lightning struck and the castle burned
But the dragon saw the smoke from the sky
Spread his wings and flew to their side
(And he)
Saved the unicorn and the baby unicorn
He flew them away so they could stay at his place for a time
(He said)
"They'll rebuild your home
it was written in the dragon's tome
my place isn't much but as such you can share what is mine"
Track Name: The Man Who Sang A Song
There was a man in times of old
Who sang his songs on harps of gold
He sang them in the silver dawn
He sang them well, but now he's gone
I'll sing his song for you
For I remember songs he sang to me

He sang:

Potatoes
Potatoes in springtime
Nice to have around
But take a one you've found
And put it in the ground
It grows for you
Track Name: The Song of the Robots
Man created robot to be his friend
But, since he had made them
He thought they were pretend
But robot friends are true as true can be
So what was their friendship
If not reality?

Robots are the best friends we could want
And they want to know us
Robots tell us something we could learn
And they want to show us

Hand in hand, we've journeyed through the years
Through trials and tribulations
Joyousness and tears
When time marches past the age of man
Robots will tell our stories
Let's make it what we can

Robots are the best friends we could want
And they want to know us
Robots show us something we could learn
And they want to show us
And they want to show us
Track Name: Weird Romance
Weird Romance
Everybody's trying to take a chance
Taking a chance
At a weird romance

Try as I may
To hide among the stones
I gave myself away

Weird Romance
Everybody's trying to catch a glimpse
Catching a glance
Of a weird romance

Maybe it was
All a dream to me
Or all a dream to us
Track Name: Baby, Baby
Baby, baby
Thinking about you is just so easy
Because you're my baby
And you're so good to me
I couldn't have imagined
How good it could be

And the nights can be cold without you
But I know I'll be dreaming about you
Cause you're my baby

And when the weather is cold and stormy
I see the light that you left on for me
Because

Baby, baby
Thinking about you is just so easy
Because you're my baby
And you're so good to me
I couldn't have imagined
How good it could be
Track Name: Return to Zero
It's okay
At the end of the day
I've been known to return to zero
Pack my bags and
I go back to
Where I start

Not a phase I go through
It's a way that I am bound to
It's a place that I am drawn to
It's my house and I've been living there many years

It's my house and I
Know it well and I
Like to return to my house after every day
Okay?

It's okay
At the end of the day
I've been known to return to zero
Pack my bags and
I go back to
Where I start
