Last Summer 03:36
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

Anticipation 04:11
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

Sit 02:43
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

Trust Me 04:28
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
5.
Know You 05:01
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

Remember 04:08
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

Life 02:50
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
8.
Grave 02:43
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

Love 04:04
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

The Beast 02:14
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
12.
Fiery Hope 03:16
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
13.
Mexico 01:55
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

Hungry 03:41
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
15.
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
