Track Name: Heaven Help Me Now - (Live from Genghis Cohen)
Heaven Help Me Now
Lyrics and Music by Dan Holguin (ASCAP Dan Holguin Music)


Verse 1 Pt. 1
I want to be free of all the lies that I believe

Heaven help me now
Heaven help me now

I am so programmed I am half human

Heaven help me now
Heaven help me now

I am so sick of losing weight and doing drugs

Heaven help me now
Heaven help me now

Pt.2
I want to be free of all the lies that I believe

Heaven help me now
Heaven help me now

I am so programmed I am half human

Heaven help me now
Heaven help me now

I am so sick of losing weight and doing drugs

Heaven help me now
Heaven help me now

CHORUS

Heaven help me now....

Verse 2
I am such a tyrant my love can become violent

Heaven help me now
Heaven help me now

Angry and tortured I own my part open up my eyes

Heaven help me now
Heaven help me now

If an open heart is hard to find, try to open up yours this time

Heaven help me now
Heaven help me now

CHORUS

RAP:
These verses are the lessons in the life that I've been living
I will never try to stop changing because of what they're saying
You won't see me sleeping in the bed that I've been making
I'm too busy dreaming because life is what you dream it
Best believin' that I only dream in millions
And because it keeps on coming
I will give you all my money all my thoughts and my feelings

Track Name: Now I Only - (Live from Genghis Cohen)
Now I Only
Lyrics and Music by Dan Holguin (Dan Holguin Music ASCAP 2010)

I don't know where to start
I don't remember where or why we left off

CHORUS
From the dirt comes flowers
Questions lead to answers
You're not always on my mind
Now I only think of you most of the time

VERSE 1
We talked about love
What we did wrong
What we did right
And what we couldn't do at all
I smothered you good my dear
I'd cry when you were thirsty
To give you my tear
When all you wanted was air

CHORUS
From the dirt comes flowers
Questions lead to answers
You're not always on my mind
Now I only think of you most of the time

VERSE 2
In a fit to try and figure out
Who's at fault
Who should take the blame
And which one of us needs to change
But now I'm on my own again
And now I've decided to begin
I'll never be left behind again

CHORUS
From the dirt comes flowers
Questions lead to answers
You're not always on my mind
Now I only think of you most of the time

BREAK DOWN
I only think of you
I only think
I only think of you
I only think you most of the time

CHOURS
From the dirt comes flowers
Questions lead to answers
You're not always on my mind
Now I only think of you most of the time
Track Name: So Damn Beautiful - (Live from Genghis Cohen)
So Damn Beautiful
Lyrics and Music by Dan Holguin (Dan Holguin Music ASCAP 2010)

I hope this doesn't scare you
I can't run from the truth
You know how I feel and I'm trying to deal with
Falling out of my blue
And I can't believe how you've already
Broken down my guard
Using brick after brick, building wall after wall
I used to run from them all

And now I see so clearly
Crying and swaying
These day's I often write what I should be saying
If I lit this book on fire
And threw it past my hearts desire
It would be the shooting star I would use
And this could start

CHORUS:
But you think he's perfect
And every word he says is
So damn beautiful
I cannot keep this inside
My fists all clenched up
I'm bound and tied by my feet
I know he's what you want but
I'm right here and I could be
Exactly what you need

So when you need me
Could you please be helpless and alone
So can break your fall and repair it all
No matter how bad the damage
Then I can pretend when take my hand
You've finally come to your senses
I've got to call you my own
I've lost control
I knew this would happen

Theses pages are cages of rages
I've never said until now
I'm about to uncover the worst thing I've ever harbored
Two journals later and I'm only better
At compromise
There's no more fear
There's just that line I wish you'd find

CHORUS:
But you think he's perfect
And every word he says is
So damn beautiful
I cannot keep this inside
My fists all clenched up
I'm bound and tied by my feet
I know he's what you want but
I'm right here and I could be
Exactly what you need

But you think he's perfect
And I just heard he belongs to you now
As I stand in this hall
I see your light on
You're getting ready to go to his house
Quietly screaming my dreams just keep bleeding
Why can't you see
I'm exactly what you need

I'm not perfect, but I could make your world so damn beautiful
