Track Name: Broadway
Listless, I'm standing out on broadway, wishing on the stars to guide me back
To when I knew how to love and give back
Always told Myself I wanted, more than superficial things, but now-
I just want some likes and someone to scratch
my back, but she won't text back.
And I'm tearing up my posters swearing this will be the last time,
wishing on a star that never answers back
I never slept sound those nights

Sometimes I think its me and myself,
destined to parade across these roads, but my Dad tells me I can come home...
Its good to know I'm guarded but walls I build just keep out all the love I want from you; I refuse to give up
I'll save,
my best for you;
Just like when we both were kids and talked about our dreams,
like we had nothing standing in our fated ways,
I think I slept sound those nights

Thinking now its time to let go
Not stuck thinking of old times
But I need a compass showing me the way
The way towards you,
towards the light;
the way towards you,
towards the light

Listless, standing out on Broadway, wishing on the stars to guide me back, to when I knew how to love and give back.
Track Name: Baited Breath
Burdened by my sense of wonder how do I explain these things
I could try but I'll just show you, downtown lights with backroad dreams

Got a curiosity that kills me every other day
Made a pass at you last month just crossed my mind hope you're ok

These words I mean and mean to tell you,
Never got around to that
One day I'll tell you the song,
That brings me back to when,
We met...

On my way to irresponsible parties
Vision fizzles it all starts to get choppy
Did you know that I have my own heartbeat, in a box, ball and chained up
With a key dangling on baited breath

Now I'm staring in a mirror taking all my creases in
Starting to love all my cracks and thinking about letting you in

These words I mean and mean to tell you,
Never got around to that
One day I'll tell you the song,
That brings me back to when,
We met...

On my way to irresponsible parties
Vision fizzles it all starts to get choppy
Did you know that I have my own heartbeat, in a box, ball and chained up
With a key dangling on baited breath

You see me, see you, see it all, see your truth
You don't want to waste time, just be you, you'll be fine X2

God I wish someone would just stop me (stop me)
From keeping this love I feel halted
Far past due this month to have lost it,
But here you are in the flesh and I can't help but feel anew
Give me time its within my skills maybe
God since childhood I always was crazy, Oh
But the best minds are those that go chasing
All the views, that people choose to pass by, girl we see it all

All, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Hoh, oh, oh
Oh, oh oh
Track Name: Inspiration
Once there, was a friend in me to guide you
That face, got lost in all the untruth

That's alright, I'm doing fine, I'm doing fine
That's alright, I'll wait till our time is right

If I could, be with you on State Street
You'd see how far you're looking past me

Thats alright, I'm doing fine I'm doing fine
That's alright, I'll wait till our time is right
That's alright I'm doing fine I'm doing fine
Oh

I see you living you're an inspiration
And just know one day I'll be ready for your love
I hit rock bottom I drove you far from me
But I'm on my way back my way back home

Good for seeing not talking
I should talk to you more often

Thats alright, I'm doing fine I'm doing fine
Thats alright, I'll wait till our time is right
That's alright, I'm doing fine I'm really doing fine

Oh

I see you living you're an inspiration
And just know one day I'll be ready for your love
I hit rock bottom I drove you far from me
But I'm on my way back, my way back

I've been thinking
I've been sleeping on things
Think its time we test the waters

I see you living
You beautiful woman
I think you're an angel sent from heaven to help us believe
Oh I hit the bottom I pushed it all so far away
But I hear the calls of life their re-inviting me

I see you living you're an inspiration
And just know one day I'll be ready for your love
I hit rock bottom I drove far from me
But on my way, I'm on my way, I'm on my way back home
I see you living you're an inspiration
And just know one day I'll be ready for your love
I hit rock bottom I drove it all so far away
But I'm on my way, I'm on my way I'm on my way back home

Track Name: Goosebumps
Laying on a bed of corn and blankets
We don't need to compensate
Tilt your head towards me and ask me where I want to
Be in ten years from now

You wanna be my first love
In the worst way
I love looking at your face
Firing up these highways in my body
Ain't no stopping don't slow down

Lets get together and fall in love
Hasn't happened in long enough
Theres something special about your touch
Gives me goosebumps, gives me goosebumps
And I'm just saying this could be the day
That it all comes together
Time is just a word forget what they say
It really gets better it really gets better
You just gotta believe

Heartland is rolling by our window
It feels good girl to have you next to me
Tired of singing to these muted starlights
Could this be really what it seems

You wanna be my first love
In the worst way
I love looking at your face
Firing up these highways in my body
Ain't no stopping don't slow down oh no

Lets get together and fall in love
Hasn't happened in long enough
Theres something special about your touch
Gives me goosebumps, gives me goosebumps
And I'm just saying this could be the day
That it all comes together
Time is just a word forget what they say
It really gets better it really gets better
You just gotta believe

Oh its not the life they want for us to take
But whose to tell us how to live
Shook the cobwebs off my ego, let that fly
Now we laugh so hard we cry

Lets get together and fall in love
Hasn't happened in long enough
Theres something special about your touch
Gives me goosebumps, gives me goosebumps
I'm just saying this could be the day
It all comes together,
Time is just a word forget what they say it really gets better it really gets better
You just gotta believe
I think its time we fall in love
Oh please
Think its time we fall in love, love, love
Come on baby I think its time we fall in love
Lets get together and fall in love, hasn't happened in long enough
Oh something special oh something special about your touch
Enough is enough
Track Name: Fireflies
One day is all it took to begin
Won't you service me to sleep
I'd love a gentle hum to keep
Bandits with our hands both free

One day I'll come back you know that, oh they say
Grab your money talk is free
I love you but this climb is steep
With hands I'd venture toward the deep

All the money that the world gets to give away
Grab a glass this ones one me
Fireflies that yearn to light the way
All my ghosts rush in and greet you here, you are my tower

Point your toes, like a dancer your body shows
Poise like its had lifetimes here
I called out to a puppeteer
disappointed turned and ran from fear
I never looked back


All the money that the world gets to give away
Grab a glass this ones one me
Fireflies that yearn to light the way
All my ghosts rush in and greet you here, you are my tower

Its not so empty like you tried to tell me just last night
Feelings spun into webs harden we lose our will to flight

All the money that the world gets to give away
Grab a glass this ones one me
Fireflies that yearn to light the way
All my ghosts rush in and greet you here, you are my tower
Ohhh
All the money that the world gets to give away
Grab a glass this ones one me
Fireflies that yearn to light the way
All my ghosts rush in and greet you here, you are my tower

Fireflies that yearn to light the way
All my ghosts rush in and greet you here, you are my tower
Track Name: Staying The Night
They say it takes the legs under you time to feel like running
Wiped that frown up off my face dreams take money do they do they
Uh huh-----Yee-haw
ONE TWO THREE ONE TWO THREE FOUR

Bored we don't talk as much, but scared to fuck it up when we do
What I can't change is what you hate
But you want me to break through

And I hold on
The clock is ticking water running
And I don't want to believe this ended we can still be friends
Oh, oh, oh

Heaven knows
What I got in my bones
You won't wait I'll sweep you off your feet I promise this
Well i know its only words but now we're touching
He's not here, I'm not staying the night

Truth is I think you're amazing just the way you are
Your eyes look up from jet black lashes baby I'm on fire

And I hold on
The clock is ticking water running
And I don't want to believe this ended we can still be friends
Oh, oh, oh

Heaven knows
What I got in my bones
You won't wait I'll sweep you off your feet I promise this
Well i know its only words but now we're touching
He's not here, I'm not staying the night


Hey baby do you want somewhere to stand
Hey baby do you know your land
Do you care to dance

(two, one, three, four, two-two..one (three four five six seven eight nine..))

Oh oh oh oh

Heaven knows
What I got in my bones
You won't wait I'll sweep you off your feet I promise this
Well I know its only words but now we're touching
He's not here, I'm not staying the night X2
Track Name: Take Over My Mind
Every night I lay awake and feel the shadow cross my face
I wonder, will I ever have someone to lay next to
I got baggage but I'm not the type to put that Shit on you
Why not just find someone who takes away the pain

Oh, we're farther from that life we chose
Oh, we're loving less thats not right you know

I wanna let you into my mind let you take it over
I wanna let you into my mind let you take it Ooo X2

Mark my words like treasure chests on dried out maps displaying quests
We only have 50 more years to make the most
Laying shirtless in the sun oh midday heat can make you hungry for
Every pretty person that walks on near you

Oh, we're farther from that life we chose
Oh, we're loving less thats not right you know

I wanna let you into my mind let you take it over
I wanna let you into my mind let you take it Ooo X2

Our hearts went cold life sucks grow old
Thats what they tell you, thats what they tell you
Me you no way, what's more to say
Kiss me we'll melt away

I wanna let you into my mind let you take it over
I wanna let you into my mind let you take it Ooo X4
Track Name: Tangerines
Some days I just wanna break love
Some days I just wanna shine, shine, shine
But all the days that I can take love, are none without you by my side side side

I'll live with open arms I wanna know can our hearts still go this far

If I had to say the worst ways, that you made peace with me again, -gain, -gain
Loving flickers of a birthplace cast shadows of a man

I'll live a wordless life to save us one last goodbye

I wanna give
I'll stay for this
Its not staying in my head, in my head no more
Your love is sweet like Tangerines
No chance staying incomplete
No first to swing uh uh

Bet on my life not on my first name
It took a lot to make this work
Oh, oh, ooo
But I might not be the best one to stake claim
On a first that nearly made us cry

I'll walk your worried heart straight to the door
My hand on yours

I wanna give
I'll stay for this
Its not staying in my head, in my head no more
Your love is sweet like Tangerines
No chance its staying incomplete
No first to swing uh uh

If all the fires in the world burnt out
I could make you forget

I wanna give
I'll stay for this
Its not staying in my head, in my head no more
Your love is sweet like Tangerines
No chance I'll keep this incomplete
No first to swing uh uh
I wanna give
I'll stay for this
No chance its staying in my head, in my head no no
Your love is sweet like Tangerines
I'll make sure that this stays with me, stays with me this stays
Your the girl of my dreams
