Track Name: Summer's Kiss
You know it don't mean much
If you can talk about love
But there ain't no love left in you
They say you gotta have faith
But how much will it take
To make me believe it isn't true?

Can't put a price on your love
You know i can't afford

We took a stroll on an ocean tide
Moon was hanging in a blue twilight
Lying down with the stars in our eyes
Clothes were scattered on the sand that night

I know it don't mean much
But you can count on us
Somehow we've always seen it through
You say I lost your trust
But honey don't give up
You know I'm gonna keep coming back to you

Can't put a price on your love
You know I can't afford

We took a stroll on an ocean tide
Moon was hanging in a blue twilight
Lying down with the stars in our eyes
Clothes were scattered on the sand that night
Time was short with our arms entwined
Sun came rising like a fine aged wine
You were much too young to get caught up in this
Couldn't stop what started with a summer's kiss

I couldn't give you enough
I know you wanna give me more
Track Name: Analog Girl
See you walk around your room
Wearing out my button down
Staring at your every move
TV's on don't hear a sound but

You
And the madness that these walls have seen
You
And the things you mumble while you dream

I must be crazy
Look what you made me
I must be crazy
Look what you made me

My bread and butterfly
Schizophrenic little girl
Hip hop from the underground
The soundtrack to your little world

You
And the madness that these walls have seen
You
And the things you mumble while you dream

I must be crazy
Look what you made me
I must be crazy
Look what you made me

Staring at you, you stare at you
Yeah, the secrets that that mirror could tell
Track Name: Hey Andrew
Hey Andrew I miss you dearly
Just thought you'd like to know
I'm seeing things more clearly
Than I ever have before
And life's taken more sincerely
Not that anyone's keeping score tonight
You gave me more than I had the right

I see you up ahead and I'm not far behind
I'll cherish the times ziplocked in my mind
Cannonballs off the dock
And I swear I'm fine
I swear i'm fine

Your chair it holds your comfort
As I read here with your ghost
Your fingers turn the pages
I can feel that you are close tonight
You gave me more than I had the right

I see you up ahead and I'm not far behind
I'll cherish the times ziplocked in my mind
Cannonballs off the dock
In the warm sun of May

And I swear I'm fine
I swear I'm fine
Track Name: We're Alright
The lights in these parts
They're neither clear nor bright
The road seems longer
In the dark of the night
Commitment is love
When I've done you no wrong
But forgiveness rises above
So be strong

Cause we're patching a hole
In a heart that's been torn

If I forgive you my friend
With these words that I send
And a will to find wounds
That together we can mend
We're alright

We'll see eye to eye
When we're face to face
Does it even matter
If we can't retrace
The things that we loved
The places we belonged
And the times we didn't care who was wrong

Cause I'm still holding on
After all we've said

And I forgive you my friend
With these words that i send
And a will to find wounds
That together we can mend
Will you forget
All these scenes of regret
So that we can move along
And not have to pretend we're alright
Track Name: Trampoline
I saw her bouncing on a trampoline
The grass was blue and the sky was green
Angels dust on the tips of her wings
It's like you've never seen
And you forget to breathe at all

Her hair was flowin'
A cool wind was blowin'
I said 'hello there miss...'
You know you've really got a lovely smile
So would you give me a kiss
If I leaned in like this
I won't tell nobody at all
No I won't tell nobody at all

I could be your fantasy
All but the crown and cape
If you can show me some reality
There's only so much I can take
We can sip on some mushrooms in tea
Anything you please
It doesn't faze me at all

My thoughts were clearing
Her tone was endearing
She said 'you're good at this...'
My dreams were truthful to me all the while
So would you give me a kiss
If I leaned in like this
I won't tell nobody at at all
No I won't tell nobody at all
No I won't tell nobody

Then we stopped dancing
Your hands in my hands and
My focus on your lips
And it's hard to resist when you're looking like this
The shape in your dress isn't too hard to miss
Thunder and lightning and all this excitement is making me blind
But I won't tell nobody at all
No I won't tell nobody at all
No I won't tell nobody at all
No I won't tell nobody at all
Track Name: Cold of December
'Cause you might not remember
But how could I forget
Cuddling away the cold of December
Lighting each others cigarettes
With the door bolted tight
The prying eyes of the world could not see
I was truly myself it felt so right
There was magic between you and me

But I thought we had what it takes
To make it to the other side
So let's not make any hasty mistakes
Let's just wait for a sign
Of the times that we saw a light
At the end of the tunnel

I knew all along that you were pretending
The silence in your eyes couldn't lie
Messages that you were sending
Enough to make a grown man cry
You had me convinced that night
No better place in the world to be
I was lost in your lies
You held me tight
There was magic between you and me

But I thought we had what it takes
To make it to the other side
So let's not make any hasty mistakes
Let's just wait for a sign
Of the times that we saw a light
At the end of the tunnel

Your true love went out like a gas lamp
On the windiest winter night
And then darkness came to remind you
What it's like to be alone
Track Name: Annabelle
There's no need for sorrow if she's already taken
You know she's young and she could be mistaken
When she tells you it's over now
She might sound sure but you don't have to listen
She can't tell you what you heart's been missing
If you love her anyhow

She's out the door with a crash
She might not come back
Cause I could not hold back what I needed to say

Say something
Say anything
Don't just stand there staring
So please, I need to know
Can you save me
From myself, from everything
All this hate around me
So please, I need to know

Your friends tell you one thing
And you know it's the other
You won't find peace
With a different lover
And when you break down
Do it gracefully

She's out the door with a crash
She might not come back
cause I could not hold back what I needed to say

Say something
Say anything
Don't just stand there staring
So please, I need to know
Can you save me
From myself, from everything
All this hate around me
So please, I need to know
So please, I need to know
So please, I need to know
Track Name: Open Letter
Tell me your heartache
Your heartbreak and your sorrow
Include all the details
For facts i can borrow
Tell me your weakness
I'll give you the power
And when the pressure begins

When you look to the side cause you just feel too shy
It's really a shame
If you fell out of line and got lost in the night
I'd feel to blame
Sometimes you have to pretend it's the last time
We'll rise again

Clarity comes from
The bottom of the tub
With water all around you
The tears just won't come
You can change all your mistakes
But only if you want to
And when the pressure begins

When you look to the side cause you just feel too shy
It's really a shame
If you fell out of line and got lost in the night
I'd feel to blame
Sometimes you have to pretend it's the last time
We'll rise again

And when the pressure begins
To get under your skin
Well don't fret my friend
Track Name: Slow Dance
Do you think we could slow dance tonight
By the fire in the warmth and the light
Time might stop and I'm ok with that
Two left feet, your smile cracks
Your grace makes up for my lack
Slow turn and we're back in step again

You lean in close to whisper sweet and sincere
It's getting late and I'm drunk on you dear

So what am I waiting for
I should kiss you at the door
You'll invite me up for an empty coffee cup
So baby turn off the phone
Every second we spend alone
I'll do what you want
Just tell me how it feels
My lips are sealed

We'll take a train ride up the coast
Borrow your hand and share my coat
Storytelling to pass the hours
Still learning, I already see
In your heart all I wish to be
So say that you'll be mine

You lean in close to whisper sweet and sincere
It's getting late and I'm drunk on you dear

So what am I waiting for
I should kiss you at the door
You'll invite me up for an empty coffee cup
So baby turn off the phone
Every second we spend alone
I'll do what you want
Just tell me how it feels
My lips are sealed

And it might not turn out the way we plan
But I've got plenty of time on my hands
Track Name: Grace Falls
You thought I didn't know
But then I proved you wrong
With some encouragement
We just might get along
It's not an accident
That you're right down the street
Guess that's the kick of it
The time it took to meet, yeah

So let's just work it out
We couldn't know it all
And that's when grace falls
And if you give in to doubt
Well then we've lost it all
And that's when grace falls

You could convince yourself
You're gonna have to leave
Back to your normal life
Or what you think it should be
Would you be happier
Another face on the street
When in reality
There's only you and me, yeah

So let's just work it out
We couldn't know it all
And that's when grace falls
And you give in to doubt
Well then we've lost it all
And that's when grace falls
