Track Name: I Would
Too far away from you so I am talkin’ to myself
The people here don’t know me well they think I’m someone else
There’s writing on the bathroom wall
I read it all
And I raised my glass to your health

Their words get tangled up by the way they want to seem
Too short a friend for honest ends and ordinary dreams
The show it felt ingenuine
A waste of time
And the sky broke at the seams

And I would walk, to see your face, one more time
And I would brave the chance that just a glance would turn you back to me
Yeah I would run, to see your eyes, and touch your smile
Oh, oh oh, I see your smile

The sun it rose up early but it did not raise my head
The confidence I had last night replaced by doubt instead
If you were here you’d laugh at fear
And throw me out of bed
I could forget the things I read

Don’t you think that we could make it without giving in to pride?
Perhaps a middle ground before we choose to hide ourselves
I have lied to you, before my time

CHORUS
Track Name: The Wanderer
Travel far beyond alone
Hills and dales are the only home I’ve ever known
Safe from harm
The stars will be my lover’s arms

Take me under the willow tree
I don’t care to know your petty lies and broken greed
Safe from harm
The pines will be my lover’s arms

CHORUS: Whoa, oh, oh deep in the wood
Rings on trees, the things I see are time, time, time,
And I know no fear
Yeah I know you’re here

Lessons hard bought, the seeds are sown
Oh it pains to think the things I should have ready known
Safe from harm
The fire still will keep me warm

CHORUS

So hold me close, so hold me close now, hold me close
So I know you’re here, so I know you’re here

CHORUS
Track Name: Fools
Try me, left foot forward, saw me lookin’ at the door but I’d be game
I’ll be hard to touch but, damn, baby, if you want it enough
I could be persuaded
Slow and subtle, hold back just a little and maybe…

CHORUS: Late night, feels right, only slightly tipsy and the daylights far away
Shot’s back, feel that hand and watch the band, they know how to play
Slow down, we have all night ‘til the day
Drop line, dance time, absolute-ly, nothin’ to say

Make me frustrated, hate it, baby, make me beg for more
Touch me, leave me, tease me right now you’re too easy to ignore
I could be your Eden… Adam held out, whoa-oh, baby I need you to taste me

CHORUS

A whole lot of fools, seems to me
Pretending there are rules, this game is much too easy
I’d be your fool baby if you would not be such a, a fool, a fool to me

CHORUS
Track Name: Easier
Perhaps it’s easier to find a place to hide than to fight, if it came to that
Perhaps it’s easier to run when it’s raining out, the sun may not ever show

CHORUS: And I would try again with you, if you wanted to
I would try again
And I would try again with you, if you wanted to
I would try again

If we came a bit late that day, perhaps we should not have come at all
If we misunderstood I would speak again but you already built a wall

CHORUS

Take this heart and try to treat it better than
And I will take your pain back on
Take these hands and try to hold ‘em tighter than
And I will hold your hand in mine

Perhaps it’s easier, perhaps it’s easier, perhaps it’s easier
Track Name: Flowers In Your Hair
When we were younger we thought
Everyone was on our side
Then we grew a little bit
And romanticized the time I saw
Flowers in your hair
It takes a boy to live
It takes a man to pretend he was there

So then we grew a little and knew a lot
And now we demonstrated it to the cops
And all the things we said
We were self-assured

Cause it's a long road to wisdom
But it's a short one
To being ignored

Be in my eyes
Be in my heart
Be in my eyes ai yai yai
And be in my heart

So now I think that I could
Love you back
And I hope it's not too late cause you're so attractive
And the way you move
I won't close my eyes
It takes a man to live
It takes a woman to make him compromise

Be in my eyes
Be in my heart
Be in my eyes ai yai yai
And be in my heart
Track Name: Mirror Boy
Asked him to play all day but he is tired
Asked him to marry rich but he can’t find her
I watched you hold your head and lie there
You are alone your world can’t watch you fail

Felt like the storm was formed in your own house
Father so calm it’s all your fault now
I am enough, you said, to stand tall
You are enough I knew, and you doubt me

CHORUS: And woah-oh-oh the race is
One more test you aced and
Placed the best and
Don’t you, don’t you, don’t you go frownin’ at the mirror boy
And woah-oh-oh they will ask you to be, tell you to be, won’t you listen to me?
Don’t frown at the mirror boy

It was your flag they flew in our front yard
It was your words they used for their trump card
But it was your smile that held me in awe
You want to hide it… I’m not there

So run ‘til the rage you’ve caged has been let out
Open your mouth and scream your heart out
Lie in my arms until your tears halt
And breathe at the end your heart will feel safety

CHORUS
Track Name: Dance with Me
I must be going crazy, to feel this way… as if the other day had been a lifetime
Put on my dress, I must confess, I was hoping to run into you
Then you would take me dancing
On the rooftop in an empty warehouse lot
Hours would pass before we noticed we forgot….
To keep our clothes on

CHORUS: And I will go on, dance with me, dance with me
Go, go, go on
Smiling freely, my friends we were meant to be
Dancing, now let’s dance on

And strangers I’ve found, try not to be aware. On the bus they’ll stare at anything but me
I’ll fight that now, I won’t look down, ‘cause I find you much more interesting
But this time he looked back at me
A smile flashed between us in the crowd
But then his stop arrived and he got off without a sound
I’ve never felt so free

CHORUS

And I’ve got no time for these silly rules
I will play the game my way
Let us not be frightened fools
Or we will give ourselves away
So take my hand and be my lover
Take my heart I’ll be your friend
We’ll make mistakes, but we’ll forgive one another
As we laugh and sing and play and love and dance!

CHORUS
Track Name: Stay
You’re too much to hold on to, too much to believe
And each day I fall harder I can’t seem to breathe
Hey, ey, ey, ey, you’re the one I want to stay with, baby

From the first time you touched me I couldn’t let go
And the things that you shared then made me want to know you
Hey, ey, ey, ey, you’re the one I want to stay with

CHORUS: And would you share my world
And hold me, I’ll be your girl, I’ll be your girl
And take me every night and I’ll be
I’ll be your light
Would you be mine?

And the way that we smile the way that we laugh
Doesn’t matter how long still the time’s gone too fast
But hey, ey, ey, ey, you’re the one I want to stay with

I remember the time you first said it to me
And that word is so scary, a risk to believe
But hey, ey, ey, ey, you’re the one I want to stay with

CHORUS
Track Name: Vertigo
Just weigh the anchor there is no way to be ready
Worlds are waiting for you to reach their shores
Many tell you of the paths they took to get there
Their words are wasted for you cannot use their doors

Many days at sea and I am still unsteady
Even small waves pitch this great weight side to side
But there are mornings when the sun’s on the horizon
And I begin to feel the changing of the tides

CHORUS: So hey-oh, pick yourself back up!
When the world it weighs too much
You are enough, we are enough
And dig deep, your roots cannot be pulled free
The stars are there to guide thee
They are not comin’ down
To make fires on the ground

You’re walking quickly ‘cause these streets are unfamiliar
Turning corners though you do not know their names
As though decisiveness protects you from their judgments
As though they’re watching you as if they weren’t the same

CHORUS

BRIDGE: But this is mornings when the sun can’t raise you up
This is rainy days, it doesn’t matter anyway
There are shadows in the room, blue faces talkin’ to you
Drawing curtains cross the moon

So put this water to your lips I see them tremble
Whether fear or health betrayed you I don’t know
It seems the sky has brought its vertigo to earth now
But you don’t have to take the offer it lays down

CHORUS
Track Name: Takes Me Down
It’s hard to know, and as we get older it’s harder to ask
And they say we get stronger but I swear it hurts more as time passes
And I try to believe that I was… beautiful once
Now every misdeed, misstep, I misspoke, you missed the point
Feels like every mistake is permanent, takes me down, and now
I can’t get off the ground“Make time,” they said, “for the ones who matter the most”
So it feels like a crime that I just don’t know who I want to get close to
And everyone feels like they are tied down by the clock
Now every choice chips the time off of our limited supply
Feels like every mistake is permanent, takes me down, and now
I can’t get off the ground
CHORUS: I need an angel it’s too hard to not believe in God
And justification is makin’ me sore to the soul
And I’d take it on faith but I just don’t have any faith left to take
I’m holdin’ out hard for a chance to believe or at least…
At least I need a break

Spit out your petty words ‘cause righteousness can hurt
Like a broken tooth, remove the proof, that you were hit first
Entitlement shouldn’t be dependent on your birth
So try to find an open mind for the ones who closed theirs’ first
I am listening to boys whose only toy is philosophical dirt
And it’d be fine if it wasn’t meant to hurt

CHORUS

It’s easy to see, but as you get smarter it’s harder to feel
That everyone adds some good and bad and no right way is the real way
And I don’t believe that you should teach them they are wrong
Believing in heaven is better than letting your conscious go numb
I am listening to girls, wanna change the world by telling them they are dumb, and I for one
Won’t beat on that drum

CHORUS

It’s hard to know, and as we get older it’s harder to ask
And they say we get stronger but I swear it hurts more as time passes
And I try to believe that I was… beautiful once
Now every misdeed, misstep, I misspoke, you missed the point
Feels like every mistake is permanent, takes me down, and now
I can’t get off the ground

CHORUS
