"Concentrate On Me" © 2004-2006 Poppermost (ASCAP) Alex Oliver & Roy Rendahl www.poppermost.com A little bit of naughty conversation Baby, come over and talk to me And if you're looking for a new direction Baby, concentrate on me And if you're ready for a new vibration Baby, you're my cup of tea. You quench my fire like rain And, sugar-mama, talk to me I learned a long, long time ago When I was young; another girl But now I am more than willing to baby walk you home Maybe we'll be married And have ourselves a baby girl Who wonders who's watching you As you spin across this world? A little bit of naughty conversation Baby, "conversate" with me And if you're looking for a new vibration Baby, concentrate on me I learned a long, long time ago When I was young; another girl But now I am more than willing to baby walk you home Maybe we'll be married And have ourselves a baby girl Who wonders who's watching you As you spin across this world? A little bit of naughty conversation Baby, "conversate" with me And if you're ready for a new vibration Baby, concentrate on me For licensing or other music questions contact: pop@poppermost.com 702-985-2278

Down 04:09
"Down" © 2006 Poppermost (ASCAP) Alex Oliver & Roy Rendahl www.poppermost.com So I'll never drink a toast to love Shot glass of loneliness in my left hand So I'll never sit inside "the circle" Loving cups hold nothing I'll understand Chorus: Lovely, you're so lovely I could say a thousand prayers just to drink from your cup Only I'm so lonely Turn the table, turn the tide Turn my feelings upside down... Love can be as trivial just like a matchbox Left beside somebody's birthday cake And love can pierce the soul just like an arrow If it feels at odds with your mistakes (Chorus) I wonder if you ever see me Or even if you're looking right through me I wonder what's your biggest fear I sometimes wonder what you're thinking You can't be thinking what I'm thinking I wonder if I should even stay here Coz you hurt me...

"Forever Valentine" © 2006 Poppermost (ASCAP) Alex Oliver & Roy Rendahl www.poppermost.com Well, it might be insecurity Shootin' up my spine I'm sitting on a fence Cos it's my best defense Well, it might be a "man and woman" thing That keeps me sitting here Screening every call 'Till evening starts to fall I'd like to spend some time With you sometime If you're in the state-of-mind What did you do to make me need to hear from you? Call me and I'll revive that shine To your tired eyes Just keep me on your mind Forever, Valentine Well, you got me in your crosshairs Bull's eye; you hit your target For better or for worse The longing starts to hurt And I love you -- and I want you Do you need me like I want you? Twenty odd years of talking to myself Finally someone answers back Twenty odd years of looking in the mirror baby Finally someone's looking back Twenty odd years of idle conversations That never make a sound I'm ready to raise my spirit high But be there, baby, when I come back down When I come back down When I come back down I'd like to spend some time With you sometime If you're in the state-of-mind What did you do to make me need hear from you? Call me and I'll revive that shine To your tired eyes Just keep me on your mind Forever, Valentine And I love you -- and I want you Do you need me like I want you?

My Condition 02:39
"My Condition" © 2002 Brian Hudson, Alex Oliver, & Roy Rendahl www.poppermost.com Oh great! Here it comes again The trembling of a hand The slightest gestures known to man Is part of my condition, and The glow inside my bulb's too bright So I tried shutting of the light The best inventions known to man And I burn myself again, but Chorus: It's not the color of your hair Or all my favorite t-shirts that you wear It's all in how you came right back To check on my condition It's not enough to save your soul So save your dimes for growing old When every wind is chilling cold It's part of my condition, and I am the colour of the day Silly boy blue in shades of grey Things very seldom go my way And I burn myself again, but (Chorus) Alex Oliver & Roy Al Rendahl

"Punched Up Red, Black, & Blue" © 2006 Poppermost (ASCAP) Alex Oliver & Roy Rendahl www.poppermost.com Listen to me, mister My understanding is very crystal I can see your mind is mournful and confused And everything, at least to my understanding Has been punched up red and black and blue I figured everything that I read in the papers Past from mouth to headlines was the vicious truth And everything that I pick up off my TV screen Is punched up red and black and blue Punched up red and black and blue... listen to me Listen to me, mister I see another body starving in the street today It's them, tomorrow maybe me or you Are you prepared to ask a stranger for a favor When you're punched up red and black and blue? My understanding is very crystal I can see just why we're weary and confused And yesterday could set up all of your tomorrows When you're punched up red and black and blue Punched up red and black and blue... listen to me Listen to me, mister

Swan 04:25
"Swan" © 2006 Poppermost (ASCAP) Alex Oliver & Roy Rendahl www.poppermost.com Float like a swan... Don't you wish that you could float like a swan Underneath the golden rays of the sun? An ugly duckling, don't you wish you could be A beautiful thing that everyone wants to see? Chorus: It will be your day to come undone And walk the shoreline to a brighter sun We could all be like the chosen ones And float like a swan Don't you wish that you could sail like a swan Treading water in the face of the dawn? Brilliant and broken; don't you wish you could be Nevermore, and further more, there's nothing to see (Chorus) Is your reflection just reflections Of the way that you'd like to be? Or is it just another picture Of the damaged goods you see? For licensing or other music questions contact: pop@poppermost.com 702-985-2278
