Track Name: Last Summer
she came from a place you can't brag about
it wasn't the best but it did the job
we all knew the secret you had to be strong
we all knew the difference between right and wrong
the waves were all giant
the people were smaller than ants
we all sat in silence there was lot of that
and somedays we'd cry cus tomorrow is comin
and somedays we'd laugh cus today flew on by
cheer on your sister cus she's doin her best
and love all your brothers cus they don't know how
the guitar will never strum itself
and we'll never love like we loved that summer
but can you hear the music in the air
that we made last summer
and can you feel the love in the air
that we made last summer
i can still hear the music in the air
and i can still feel the love in the air
that we made last summer
Track Name: Anticipation
can you taste the truth on my tongue
the smell of my hair could teach you something
i'm rollin under covers
i'm tearin up the streets
i've got something to prove
i can do it without you
can you whisper what you're thinkin in my ear
since we've been drinkin
release your truth onto my tongue
turn up the music take off your sweater
can you feel the lust in the air
i'm shakin with anticipation
mourn the loss and move along
i see red
i see blue
i am lost in you
Track Name: Sit
you can run if you want
you can hide if you want
you know it's gonna find you
it's always gonna find you
you can run if you want you cant hide
for as long as your bones allow
just open the door and invite them inside
your demons are there to remind you you're alive
i've been runnin too long
there is no where to hide
i know it's gonna find me
it's always gonna find me
so i opened the door
i was surprised to find
i said to my demons come in, come inside
let us sit and talk a while
you can run if you want
you can hide if you want
you know it's gonna find you
it's always gonna find you
Track Name: Trust Me
trust me you don't want to know
what i put myself through
my chosen avenues
they're dimly lit
and lined with filth
my eyes see only blue
and i wake up thinkin of you
i'm sorry that i keep on callin
i wish i could destroy my brain sometimes
i just miss our time together
i'm sure you're doin fine
and i probably should know better
i just miss our time together
i think i see myself in you
and that's what makes me cry
i just want to know that you're alright
i'm sure you're doin fine
but your eyes are filled with pain like me
trust me they don't want to know
what we put ourselves through
our chosen avenues
they're dimly lit
and lined with filth
my eyes see only blue
and i wake up thinkin of you
Track Name: Know You
i wish i could know you
i wish i could feel what you feel
i wish i could be you
just to know how it feels
i set my sights on you
i know it's not like me but i like you
and i believe in a love that's true
believe in a love that's true
i wish i could see you
just to see how you're doin
i always imagine you're smiling
i hope that you're smiling now
i wish i could know you
i wish i could know how it feels
the truth is you never really know somebody
unless of course you take the time
baby lemme take the time
and all this pain it comes in threes
and i can't expect it to leave in the morning
trying to separate thoughts from emotions
i'm feelin this way cus i feel for you
i'm feelin these things cus i feel for you
i wish i could see you
just to see how you're doin
i like to think that you're smiling
i hope that you're smiling now
Track Name: Remember
what can i say
sweeter than i remember
to be held in this way
by kind like you
so funny in the morning
our time is never long
we have to sleep sometime
but i'll never forget the times
we just stayed up all night
the sun is our moon
the moon is our guide
doin alright, alright
one day we'll get away
escape into simplicity
naked more often than dressed
total bliss
i will master the axe
we will each have a spoon
the sun is our moon
you will sharpen your knife
the moon is our guide
doin alright, alright
one day we'll get away
escape into simplicity
naked more often than dressed
total bliss
Track Name: Life
i blink
down home freeway drivin
overworked and underpaid
i drink
two hands on the night
i don't know if it feels right
do you hear or do you listen
are you hear or are you missin
i could take it all in one swig
i am
doomed to wander up and down crowded in the underground
i have
too much to give so i give more than i can
i am here and i am listnin
do you see or should i show you
we've created hell on earth
no more
shit talkin false promise know nothing know it alls
we are rulers of the underground fuck your light we brought our own
i am here and i am listenin
i have seen and i am missin
so much every night it blows my mind
as i sleep the world turns
when i wake it is different again
i'm asleep dreamin of the day
when i wake up and rain falls again
i am
doomed to wander up and down crowded in the underground
i have
too much to give you i give more than i can
i am here and i am listenin
i have seen and i am missin
i could take it all
Track Name: Grave
can i ask you
several questions
why being one of them
can i see
your face without these masks you hide behind
forgive yourself
we've all made mistakes
but none as grave
as the one you'll fill someday
life is short
don't waste it wondering
ask me questions
why being one of them
i have begun to see myself without these masks i hide behind
i have to say it's worth the time
forgive yourself
we all have made mistakes
but none as grave
as the one you'll fill someday
forgive yourself
this is rough terrain
forgive yourself
we've all made mistakes
but none as grave
as the one you'll fill someday
Track Name: Love
whisper quiet
don't be shy
whisper quiet
i leave tonight
whisper quiet
they don't need to know
whisper softly
you leave tomorrow
i'll miss you
i love you
we're all falling
fallin apart
just pretending
that everything's alright
yes it's fine
i can't pretend that i am not afraid
have courage
i love you
i will listen to your record loud by myself
and watch the sun go down
when i see you play i just look away
i can't feel that much again
i love you
Track Name: The Beast
i put my hands over my eyes
when i look i hope it's gone
all day all night
you haunt me
and you will until
i see and say just what i mean
i'm looking at the beast
he is not so bad
but he certainly thinks so
Track Name: Fiery Hope
sinking slowly
you don't control me
so am i holding this fiery hope in my icy hands
steam rises and there is morning
then the stream from my eye again
i have released you but you won't let me go
holdin on still
the sting of fiery hope
i have sang all i need to say looking you straight in the face
sinking slowly
maybe one day
i will make it to your soft center
the part you've built your armor around
the part that needs to be open
the part that needs to be free
i have released you
but you won't let me go
holdin on still
the sting of fiery hope
you have released me
but you won't let me go
holdin on still
the sting of fiery hope
sinking slowly
maybe one day
i will make it to your soft center
the part you built your armor around
Track Name: Mexico
hold me close then set ourselves free
we're as real as anything
adrift on a sea of uncertainty
i have found you
and i will set you free
we read stories
explore new territories
we're in Mexico
we're in California
adrift on a sea of uncertainty
hold me close my heads in the sink
we fit like left and right
i'll meet you in the middle when the time is left alright
we have each other but we're free
adrift on a sea of uncertainty
we have each other but we're free
Track Name: Hungry
stare at the sky
drink beat happening
and listen to lemonade
tumbling in my mind
no ground to find
we're all just getting worse
fingers for feeling
eyes to see
nice to see you smiling
nice to pretend i can see you smile
forgot our dinner
now there's none to eat
we're always hungry after the feast
when did we forget how to play
it's all so simple
it's all so strange
who are you
who i am
we are what we choose to be
and they won't all be good days
but those days are everything
and nothing
stare at the sky
drink beat happening
and listen to lemonade
turning in my mind
no ground to find
we're all just getting worse
Track Name: Sweet Yesterday
sweet yesterday
you linger with me
and i feel your fear
while you sleep and dream
fighting this dimension
i watched your door close
i felt your door close
and as i drove
your sadness remained
my sadness remained
i miss you lately
though it may sound strange
i have to remember to forget everyday
i hope the breeze can lift such a weight
and carry it all
carry it far away
i hope i don't think of you all day
but chances are you'll be there anyway
this too shall pass
and one day i hope it's true
i will sing with you
i'll love you forever
and you'll always hate everything
