Big Energy 03:46
Come out tonight, don’t hold back If you trust me, just say “yes” Do something new, leave your room Break the rules, make your move Wherever you stand take my hand Whoa, don’t let go Whoa, don’t let go From the back to the front row Just enjoy the show Whoa, don’t let go Hold tight to me, my mood is weak At a crux now with the worries and my dreams The future is daunting The passed time haunting You say words are just words Yet they all come to taunt me Ignore the talk, we’re headed for the top Whoa, don’t let go Whoa, don’t let go Learn the song, sing it loud And enjoy the show Whoa, don’t let go So hold your breath, now let out the air I’ll never forget that you were there Our love is gift Let them stare Whoa, don’t let go Whoa, don’t let go Dance with me, live your truth And our hearts will grow Whoa, don’t let go

Scratched CD 03:24
Let me guess what you’re gonna do My money’s on you, you, you Face up, I left you face up You were peaceful Could barely see the scratch I knew it couldn’t last Messed up a good thing Now if I give it a spin Guaranteed to hear it again In the same spot now that it’s always been I can guess what you’re gonna do Let me guess what you’re gonna do Always get the same song stuck on repeat Hoping not to notice, but it’s hard to believe Fighting with the voices in my head Is it repetitive or defected? You’re like same song stuck on repeat Now the skip skip skip is almost intrinsic An echo I find hard to enjoy Hear you tick tick tick And of course I wish for entertainment Yet, I’m annoyed

Such a dream to hear you say All the things about your day Morning sun brighten up my way You make me know the happiness Even in the days that are so distressed That’s when I see you can be my sweet escape I say it all the time, it never gets old Your gentle waves… it’s all about you Another time to build these ties Picking up the pieces that fell behind Come on, come on take this great escape Can’t believe I’m here with you Your always in mind so I’m never unglued Now, don’t let this moment fade away

Mean Green 03:00
We are friends But where it ends is where the ugliness is Nursing madness again Can’t let it take me Something unhealthy On my heart, In my head Swallow it down Tied up with Envy, jealousy Mean green took over me Honest fondness, yet I can place The impression that we’re in a race Feel it sizzling It’s happening to me Misty green In between, silently I’m suffering When you’re around Doubled with Envy, jealousy Mean green took hold of me Take over me, take over me Feeling it now when you’re around Caught a buzz but it made me sober Now the green is taking over I’ve got that envy, jealousy Mean green took over me

Some Nights 03:05
Never been one to dwell on past reactions or distractions Lately, I’ve been breaking my own rule A sad song to bring you up The happy place from when you were young Memories that shaped everything about you Some nights I wonder When will this happiness be over? Is it all just something I made up inside my head? I hope it's not because this is fine by me Maybe it’s just optimistic Thinking that this time will be different Have I finally pieced it all together? Will it all just fail again? Nothing changes beginning to end Am I destined to a path of a never ending uphill battle? (Some nights) Are we gonna fall apart? Can these feelings last forever? Should know by now but I can't remember (Some nights) Are you gonna stick around? Or just long enough to knock me down again

When the day comes down And everybody says it’s just a cycle Through suffered dreams We will flee for our survival I’m sorry, son At six this war can’t be won I still hold hope for you When the day comes down And when the night does fall You’ll just be growing tired of the same thing I hope you’ll say “I’ll be a better person than you made me” Though pulled and torn This world can keep you warm There’s better nights ahead When the day comes down I’m not your mother dear I know we’ve barely met And you don’t know me We’ve seen the signs You’ve been sublime in how you’ve shown me With trust and love I know you will rise above The trap they set for you When the day comes down I still hold hope for you When the day comes down I still have hope for you This world has love for you When the day comes down

LP Song 03:43
Are you stuck in the sunrise? Are you fading away? Are you listening instantly, awkwardly For every word that I’ll say ‘cause every time that I open my throat I feel like it could be my last note So I say take away all the meaningless days Tell me how the hell do you cope? I suffer from this full length album curse That says I can write a thousand stagnant words Well your summit is your ceiling You have to scream how you’ve been feeling And if they listen, then it only makes it worse Scene uniforms, tired metaphors A voice that I cannot ignore ‘cause it’s reminding me what’s mine is yours But that is half a world away And a lifetime ago or so it seems When you laid down on me all your epic dreams I turned them around I did some unkind things Between our actions, my words And our parallel deeds all say I I left a note on your door to begin again Did I break all the ties that I swore I would mend? Were you left out? This much is true I have no doubt

Top Gun 03:45
Never knew the rage you bring When you drop words like “I’m suffering” It’s okay to disagree You’re right, so right I can’t control what others do, but I could live without you. Who am I defending, who do I protect? The ones that you ignore, that you forget I’ll torch this bridge with a smile and happiness. I don’t delete, I confess Go ahead and tell me who you are inside I guess your life is just more important than mine Your opinions are christensing, I’m listening Just because you made the plate doesn’t mean I’ll digest it or even chew The shit you prepared for me I’ll spit it back right on to you Dare to ask how I could do this to you Your caprice, your demands, now I can see right through you Won’t turn around, it’s about time you knew

Blue Harvest 00:39
My phone didn’t charge again Somehow turned off my alarm This is why I shouldn’t day dream Got so much work to do But now I’m on the 22 Glad it won’t be that much longer In Unit G those worries are dead One door, one more door, the foyer, The Back of David Irish’s head Where the rainbow ends I’m happiest
11.
Shine 03:29
Until today every problem’s been my own All my troubles are small I’ve changed so suddenly Look in the mirror that’s not me Every stab inconsequential And you’re crying on my shoulder Not what I expect of getting older I’m not strong, but for you I’ll be strong Plant a seed to watch it grow Water it and soon I’ll know Can it survive the shadows of this life? I will shine for you If there’s just one thing I can do And I will trust so much The future’s bright for us Anything, everything I ever did with too much pride I take it back, I take it back Any sadness or pain I caused you in your life I take it back, I take it back It’s a mask, I’m not happy when I laugh Paste on a smile, inside I’m crying It’s a task, honored faithfully ‘til my last Because of you everyday I’m trying When I’m gone, gone, gone And you need strength to carry on Just listen for this song I’ll be here for you
12.
I built a home on this stage It’s true that it’s seen better days From the coming and the going It’s never quite the same And the little things that get harder with age So give it all and give your love A song to sing that you can be proud of A chorus with no ending A note that never bends The first part of a song that’s all paper and pen So dance by the buildings Remember the small dreams That remind you You were almost home We’re going back to a place that we’ve been A thing that we have seen before And probably will again These lives are unending A ghost we’re living in Taking our time We’re going back to a place that we’ve been And with each building torn down Well, at least we got to dance And I would live it again If you gave me half a chance Or maybe I wouldn't dare Because age has built me We’re going back to a place that we’ve been A thing that we have seen before And probably will again Make it last forever Or throw it to the wind Building up We’re going back to a place that we’ve been You and me, it’s been such a long time What we have, I hope it never ends All that we’ve shared, when I close my eyes, Hear your voice a thousand miles away And I’m home It goes on and on and on and on, again
