Track Name: Sunny Day
01 / SUNNY DAY

A sunny day and you’re trapped inside
Comparing life to a virtual high
We could lay in your bed all day
Ignore reality, “let’s run away”

You may be wandering the streets of Prague
Pounding pavement ‘til you find your God
The search to matter and of who to be
Choices made inside a lucid dream

Oh

How we right the wrong, we find what was gone
But don’t you want more
Turn of phrase, it changes life
Is this love
Oh, I want more
So we roll the dice, we go back and forth
Don’t you want more
Magic in the here and now
Is this love
Oh, I want more

Oh

How we right the wrong, we find what was gone
But don’t you want more
Turn of phrase, it changes life
This is love
Oh, I want more
So we roll the dice, we go back and forth
Don’t you want more
Magic in the here and now
This is love
Oh, I want more

Oh

Distant memory or déjà vu
Parts of me knew they belonged to you
Track Name: Nothing Happens
02 / NOTHING HAPPENS

I’ve been going all out
Like I’ve got something to prove
I work so damn hard
It makes no difference to you

An epic failure I am
Or maybe I can’t judge
How success even looks
I always lose in love

I need something amazing
But I’d take even something good
I’ve got so many days in, praying for change and
Nothing happens, nothing happens
Nothing does

So name your price and I’ll pay
The cost to be enough
I’m so tired of this game
Just let me have this one

I need something amazing
But I’d take even something good
I’ve got so many days in, praying for change and
Nothing happens, nothing happens
Nothing does

When it’s hard to hope
‘Cause it hurts just as often as it heals
In one day everything can change
Turning the page

I need something amazing
But I’d take even something good
I’ve got so many days in, praying for change and
Nothing happens, nothing happens
Track Name: Stars & Streetlights
03 / STARS AND STREETLIGHTS

Moon rising, a blanket sky
We lean in to the night
We are fearless, fully alive
We give in, we risk the flight

We’ve been searching stars and streetlights
We’ve been wanting signs of new life
And we have begun

A little bit is enough for now
A leap of faith when we don’t know how
I am watching you see to the heart of me
Hope is rising, we’re on bended knee

We’ve been searching stars and streetlights
We’ve been wanting signs of new life
And we have begun

The smile upon your face
You know it kills me, you know it fills me
The wounds we can’t erase
They make us who are, every single scar
The lines we can’t retrace
You know they brought us here, somehow we made it here

We’ve been searching stars and streetlights
We’ve been wanting signs of new life
And we have begun
Track Name: Better (With You)
04 / BETTER (WITH YOU)

Sometimes this world can feel so cruel
Like it’s a wonder that we get through
Our shoulders heavy, we get weighed down
And hearts are broken but make no sound
But all it takes is just one and then we start to believe

I think I’m better, baby, I am better
I think I’m better, baby, I am better I think
I’m better, baby, I am better

Our souls are longing, they yearn for more
And we reach back for what we knew before
In the domino risks of life, you have helped me believe

I think I’m better, baby, I am better
I think I’m better, baby, I am better
I think I’m better, baby, I am better
With you

We’re standing on the edge of something new
But are we ready to leap
Wherever you go, I’ll be next to you
So when you’re ready, I am ready too
I think I’m better, baby, I am better

I think I’m better, baby, I am better
I think I’m better, baby, I am better
I think I’m better, baby, I am better
With you
Track Name: You Belong
05 / YOU BELONG

I think of the things I want to say
A thread of subconscious sewn through my day
Thoughts that would have mattered to you
Piling up, no audience to tell them to

I will be waiting for you to see
One day you will realize
You belong with me

Complicated reads to you like protection
You spread yourself so thin so you make no investments
We go around in circles but you’ll find me right at the start
Your fear has masked me with the face of another
Just one of a hundred ways to break my heart

I will be waiting for you to see
One day you will realize
You belong with me
You belong with me

Bit by bit these walls are built up
One by one I will take them down (I will take them all down)
Word after word, a poet of disguise
Provision still to find you, help will come in time
Provision still to find you, hope will come in time
Provision still to find you, love will in time

I am not she, that is not me

I will be waiting for you to see
One day you will realize
You belong
Track Name: To Be Loved By You
06 / TO BE LOVED BY YOU

Three small words have hollowed me
All of my life, I will follow thee
Like a shadow spreading from my feet
So will I carry you along with me

I just want to be loved by you
I just want something that feels true
I’m still pleading for you
Yeah, I just want to be loved by you

And as night falls I will dream of you
And when morning comes I will pretend it’s true
The weight of your arms, your body curved round mine
Oh, the sound of your voice.. you are holy wine

I just want to be loved by you
I just want something that feels true
I’m still bleeding for you
Yeah, I just want to be loved by you
Track Name: Collateral Damage
07 / COLLATERAL DAMAGE

Expectation is just resentment under construction
Slice through all ties and welcome all the destruction
Forget about knowing everything
‘Cause you don’t know anything
Anything at all

Existential but reality’s hard to manage
So you view me like sidebar collateral damage
No excuses for giving everything to get what you want
You’ll do anything to get what you want
Anything at all

It’s rote philosophy, truth will set you free
That’s just the excuse you’ll use for leaving me
We can’t unlearn what’s known
But you let it go,I tried to let it go
And in the end we are alone

Sacrifice reason, deny truth for the ease of lies
Turn off familiar, turn on compulsion to be admired
Forget that you’ve been given everything
If it’s new you’ll take anything
Anything at all

It’s rote philosophy, truth will set you free
That’s just the excuse you’ll use for leaving me
We can’t unlearn what’s known
But you let it go,I tried to let it go
And in the end we are alone

Can I still blame you
When I have enabled you too
Oh can I still blame you
When I still love you too
When I still love you too
Track Name: Get What You Want
08 / GET WHAT YOU WANT

One step at a time, you start
Each single moment plays a part
Beginnings are fragile things
But every close has an opening

Set aside all that you can’t know
Find the joy because it is unknown
Let the questions unfold and go

You could get what you want
You have to live it all

A strike of the match, a flame
Remember the reason, your aim
Your eyes can adjust in the dark
You will find light, protect the spark

Set aside all that you can’t know
Find the joy because it is unknown
Let the questions unfold and go

You could get what you want
You have to let it burn
You could get what you want
You have to live it all

When it’s right are you willing to sacrifice
When the obstacle becomes to the fight
Will you fight, are you willing to sacrifice
Then go

You could get what you want
You have to let it burn
You could get what you want
You have to live it all
Track Name: Happy To Be
09 / HAPPY TO BE

It was there, on your porch
January ice
The night you looked at me and said “I love you”

You moved close, you held me
A little bit too long
For a friend and I knew that I loved you

Oh, it is sweet
The way life unfurls
Happy to be there

The world standing still
To possibilities
All the wrongs in life made right
Because you love me

Le monde immobile
Tant de possibilités
Les douleurs passées effacées
Parce que tu m’aimes

Ah, quel plaisir
De voir comment la vie se déroule
Le plaisir d’être là

Oh, it is sweet
The way life unfurls
Happy to be here
Track Name: Kings Cross
10 / KINGS CROSS

I am standing on the tracks
I can see the train is coming
I cannot estimate how fast
But there’s no doubt that it is moving
No way to tell how near
No choice, I wait right here

I’m gonna lose someone I love
There is no way for me to change this
It is a blessing and a curse
The cost of freedom from suffering
Life swings the two-edged sword
The train will come, we board

We are praying for a sunrise
No brokenness or pain left to survive
And beauty’s all that’s left to thrive
Oh, let it come

I would give up all my days
For you I’d trade everything
I’d shelter you with my heart
So that you could live completely
I’d barter life for love
I wish that it was enough

We are praying for a sunrise
No brokenness or pain left to survive
And beauty’s all that’s left to thrive
Oh, let it come
