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: 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: And I need an angel it’s too hard to not believe in God
And justification is makin’ me sore to the soul
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
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 night 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, baby

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
