01. Sam Cooke: A Change Is Gonna Come

Oh there been times that I thought I couldn't last for long
But I think I'm able to carry on
It's been a long, a long time coming
But I know a change gonna come, oh yes it will

02. Augustana: Boston

I think that I'm just tired
I think I need a new town
To leave this all behind
I think I need a sunrise
I'm tired of the sunset
I hear it's nice in the Summer
Some snow would be nice

03. Abra Moore: Somebody That Cares

Does he say he loves you
And does he play to win?
And does he leave a light on
When you're late getting in?
Now you can't keep leaving
Trying to run from your feelings again
It seems your mind wonít forget
That undecided love affair
It's time you let him go
For somebody that cares

04. Zach Berkman: Before You Move Your Lips

And I would say
It's hard for me to feel this way about anyone
So I just came to see
So think about it
Before you move your lips to say anything
How do you feel about me?

05. A Fine Frenzy: Near To You

Well, you and I, have something different
And I'm enjoying it cautiously
I'm battle scared, I am working oh so hard
To get back to who I used to be
He's disappearing, fading steadily
When I'm so close to being yours
Won't you stay with me, please?

06. Carolina Liar: When You Are Near

Time is passing so slow
Dragging me deep
I can't make anything
Out of what might-have-beens
Will tomorrow bring all into light?
When you are near me
When you are here I see
All that I am made of
And all that I am
When you are near

07. Chantal Kreviazuk: Feels Like Home to Me

If you knew how lonely my life has been
And how long I've been so alone
And if you knew how I wanted
Someone to come along
And change my life the way youíve done
It feels like home to me
It feels like home to me
It feels like I'm all the way back
Where I come from

08. Averi: Mouth Full of Sand

Fell asleep at the wheel the other night
And I crashed into reality
It's a scary place to be, or so I found out
Without the faces that used to surround me
Like a pilgrim in the desert, I'm diving into air
Thinking there's water, but nothing's there
Because I thought you were an ocean
But this view from where I stand
Has me leaving with a mouth full of sand

09. Athenaeum: What I Didn't Know

Cause what I didn't know
Is I was killing you
I said a lot of things
That I didn't mean to
But I am older now
And I believe in you
So I can wait a while
If it brings me back to you

10. Augustana: Found My Place

Sink or swim
Take me in
Hold my hand
Running through the sand
All this time
All this time
I've finally found my place
Found my place
