Track Name: whoo [that's better]
it's that sunday afternoon breeze
it's the spendin' time with my family
it's that inevitable three-part harmony
it's the biscuits, gravy, mashed potatoes, collard greens
it's the "please and thank you" common courtesy
there's somethin' to that southern hospitality
i look around, people wearin' these frowns
and i think i got to go back down

'cause i got grown and went far away
now all i want is to leave today
take a ride through some countryside and say
oh, say

"whoo..."
"whoo... now, that's better!"
Track Name: passin' me by
the sun just passin' me by
the sun just passin' me by
the sun just passin' me by
by, by

travelin' this lonely road
and it seems i've no place to go
travelin' this lonely road
and it seems i've no place to go

and
the sun just passin' me by
the sun just passin' me by
the sun just passin' me by
by, by

question, what do i have to lose
do what i must do
just to get it through to you
but you runnin', you ain't ready
and i just don't get it
said you like a challenge but you
frowning at the first one
meanwhile, i keep movin'
steady, provin'
no help from you
the things i said i'd do
and time's a wastin'
wonder where the day went
my purpose melting
out there on horizon

and
the sun just passin' me by
the sun just passin' me by
the sun just passin' me by
by, by
Track Name: rather just believe
wondering where you are
sometimes you seem so far
especially when it's dark
'cause the sun has a way
of hiding all of my fears
better than the moon, when it appears
the night tends to make things clear

and it isn't like i could just call you
askin' you whatchu been up to, no, God
oh no, 'cause you're a different kind of friend

i wish i could just see you
i wish i could just hear you
then maybe my faith would increase
but if i, i could just see you
if i, i could just hear you
then you wouldn't be
all that you've been to me
so i'd rather just believe

now, clearly i can i remember
i was reading in your word
and found that i'm not the first one to question
see, there was a man named Thomas
he was never really fully convinced
until he felt the scars on Jesus' hands

and sometimes i really feel just like him
i wanna know all the outs and ins, but God
oh God, you're so much bigger than i'll ever know

i wish i could just see you
i wish i could just hear you
then maybe my faith would increase
but if i, i could just see you
if i, i could just hear you
then you wouldn't be
all that you've been to me
so i'd rather just believe
Track Name: come back home
struggled through the long, long day
said my mood came with the rain
yeah, you know i was lying again
and so i pulled into the driveway
turned the house key
turned the shades
all alone

inside i think a voice is speaking what is right
question is, do we ever listen
had it all, threw it away
just to play this losing game
still i hear you say...

come back home
come back home
though you've strayed
you are never too far away
you can come back home
Track Name: notice me
you stepped right over me
i was lying on the floor
i was the one sprawled out
welcoming you at the door
see, i am the ground that you walk on
the reason why you are here (your foundation)
but with your eyes never shifting
you'd think that i had disappeared

notice me, notice me, notice me...
