Track Name: Anywhere We Want To
Oh, it’s lovely to meet you
Right on the corner of my stoop
The wind races with autumn’s scent
Mixed with your perfume

I’m worked to the bone
I’m losing on my own reality show

The string of lights around the tapestry
Illuminates our wildest dreams

Why don’t you come on over
Come on over to me?
We'll ride down the city streets
Forget to sleep
Staying up past three
See, the birds outside my window
They fly anywhere they want to

Wake up before the alarm
Together, we are warmer than the sun
Three words are hanging on my lips
I can't promise this so soon

The string of lights around the tapestry
Illuminates our wildest dreams

Why don’t you come on over
Come on over to me?
We'll ride down the city streets
Forget to sleep
Staying up past three
See, the birds outside my window
They fly anywhere they want to
Fly anywhere they want to

Why don't you come on over
Come on over to me?
Leave the flowers at my window
And we'll fly anywhere we want to
Track Name: I Don't Know
I don't know much about the winter
I'm from a place far away
I know you wished it was closer
Well, better have it your way

I don't know if I'll ever stay
I'm from a place quite far from here
Connected through a computer

Like systems set on overdrive
These days get muddled if I don't write to remind
And oh I'm still trying to find

Oh it's pounding in my head
This battle to stay ahead
Why don't you help me out instead?

Sometimes I wish you away
From my cloud where it doesn't rain
What you want is more that I can give to you anyway

You ain't got to be afraid
Your life's already made
Oh it's pounding in my head
This battle to stay ahead
Why don't you help me out instead?
Why won't you help me out instead?

Wind me up, now put me down and watch me go
Around in circles spinning everything that I don't know
We are all the same

You ain't got to be afraid
Your life's already made
Oh it's pounding in my head
This battle to stay ahead
Why don't you help me out instead?
Why won't you help me out instead?
Track Name: Right By You
I've been counting the days on the vine I just sway through the breeze
Now I do what I like when I like but it don't seem to please

So I save my favors

For all the people that I never made time for
Every promise that I never saw through
Try, gonna try, gonna try to do right by you

Got a world on your mind, then again so do I
It's a draw
If I say I don't see what you see it don't change what you saw

So I save my favors
For a rainy day
For a rainy day

For all the people that I never made time for
Every promise that I never saw through
Try, gonna try, gonna try to do right by you

So I save my favors
For a rainy day
For a rainy day

For all the people that I never made time for
Every promise that I never saw through
Try, gonna try, gonna try to do right
Try, gonna try, gonna try
Try, gonna try, gonna try to do right by you
Track Name: Ocean
You’re the ocean I love the most
I dwell on land and I live by your coast
Pick up the shells that you wash to shore
Take them home and listen to them all

You're the ocean I love the most
Rolling waves and crashing locks of foam
I cannot float in your waters
For I am made of a heart too heavy

Throwing all these stones I watch them settle down
Gives and takes my breath
It makes no sound

You’re the ocean I love the most
Chasing storms and rocking all the boats
Running wild until you find peace
As lazy as a sunny island

You’re the ocean I love the most
Falling tides I’m tracing with my toes
Drawing lines across the sand that keep safe
From the pull that could wash me away

Throwing all these stones I watch them settle down
Gives and takes my breath
It makes no--

Throwing all these stones I watch them settle down
Gives and takes my breath
It makes no sound
