Track Name: California Sky
| California Sky |

Down in the city
Bright lights keep shining on the ground, on the ground.
Street lights direct you
Windows correct you, tell you what you need and honestly

I could care less about the busy people making their way home
All I need is air to breathe, some space to be alone
And then come back to what I know - how he lights the morning sky,
Adventure's in her eyes and every moment flying by is hers to hold.

Up on the mountain
The sky wraps you up like the fountain of youth, bright stars pull you through.
Heaven surrounds you
Happiness has found you and you have to stop the time, raise your hands up to the sky

And all the smiling faces bring you in and make you feel at home
All I need is air to breathe, some space to be alone
And then come back to what I know - how he lights the morning sky,
Adventure's in her eyes and every moment flying by is hers to hold.

And she'll hold onto the thought of every story ever spun,
Dream of days and ways to reminisce of all the times she fell in love,
And when that time has passed her by, that California sky will forever hold adventure in her eyes.
Track Name: Spells
| Spells |

Spells tell me how to find you
I taste the air behind you,
But where is left unknown.
I'd wish on you forever,
If only I knew better
But darlin' don't you know

That you keep me alive
So don't you dare get wise
Cause it's these times that remind me

Every light is an open door.
It's these moments of fondness
That never hint just what's in store,
And it's all of the chances
That I always chose to take
That make me the one that I am,
Don't forget it babe.

I feel it in the air, I swear
They know I'm here and they want to let me know
If I were to wish on you forever,
Could I ever do better?
Darlin' don't you know

That you keep me alive
But one day if you get wise, you'd realize
It's these times that remind me

Every light is an open door.
It's these moments of fondness
That never hint just what's in store,
And it's all of the chances
That I always chose to take
That make me the one that I am,
Don't forget it babe.
Track Name: September
| September |

Waiting as one out of four down the line
Thoughts passing by, none that should matter
Seem to matter this time

Cause I'm thinking of giving you love tonight
Yes I'm thinking of every bone in your body
When I should be thinking of all that's around me,
I find it astounding

But I sit and I breath you in,
Smell you touch leak upon my skin
For just this moment, you are all that's on my mind
Till I see all the other bodies passing me by.

Taking that step that puts you before all that you see
Never would have been floating through my head,
I would instead by drowning
But I think of all that I've done and what I've had to gracefully grow through
Yes, I think of those places where nothing is new,
Every feeling is certain because I have you.
Wait let me think this through

But I sit and I breath you in,
Smell you touch leak upon my skin
For just this moment, you are all that's on my mind
Till I see all the other bodies passing me by.
Track Name: February
| February |

Sitting with my back against the door,
Reaching for you.
Sitting with my feet pressed to the floor,
Wishing this dream would come true.
Even if our lives don't meet halfway, at least I got to say

"Hey I think I love you more than I was ready for"
Every waking hour I move and pace in hopes I'll see your face
Back where it was before - so far out of place

Not sure where this road is taking me,
Not sure if I'll reach you safely,
I'll run, I'll reach, I'll fly, I just can't let this pass me by.

Slow steps in the night right by your side,
breathing you in.
Trying to play it off as just a friend,
Lord help me, I'm falling faster, sinking in.
Even if the night's hours disappear, at least I held you there.

"Hey I think I love you more than I was ready for"
Every waking hour I move and pace in hopes I'll see your face
Back where it was before - so far out of place

Not sure where this road is taking me,
Not sure if I'll reach you safely,
I'll run, I'll reach, I'll fly, I just can't let this pass me by.

Anywhere you go, I'll follow you
Even if it takes a brand new view.

"Hey I think I love you more than I was ready for"
Every waking hour I move and pace in hopes I'll see your face
Back where it was before - so far out of place

Not sure where this road is taking me,
Not sure if I'll reach you safely,
I'll run, I'll reach, I'll fly, I just can't let this pass me by.
Track Name: Pretend
| Pretend |

Spring doesn't mean many days of shining sun anymore
Blue skies turned to rain, you're so vain, you let me pour my heart out on the floor
You sat there in the car, just stared at me.

I was so lost, hope was gone, and I thought I'd reached the end
You came along, I wrote a song, found an amazing new friend
I loved you, but to you it was all pretend.

She means the world to you, stars light up the sky when she's around
But you made me think I was your universe, we were spinning in circles, space bound
When time stopped the clock, our love hit the ground.

But I know you weren't the one for me
Even though you heard my melody,
It's so hard to say goodbye,
You should know why!!

Spring doesn't mean many days of shining sun anymore
Blue skies turned to rain, you're so vain, I poured my heart out on the floor
Now you sit there in the car, your heart empty.
Track Name: I Love
| I Love |

Muster up a little confidence,
Nobody ever started their life like this.
Try to gain a little focus,
No one's getting anywhere without any notice of practicing love.

Just step up and be sweet,
Don't matter if people think you're weak
Cause I love today, I love today, I love today!
The sun is shining down on me,
This can't be ruined by nobody.
I just gotta keep breathing,
But I keep thinking
And somehow I forget and waste my attention on you

Are you not getting tired of this?
Parading around with the emphasis that you hate my guts,
Was that your way to cuss me out?
I'm getting really fucking bored with this,
I'll wear what I want, flash the smile that I've got
And embrace my whole self, you ain't leaving me on the shelf

I'll just step up and be sweet,
Don't matter if people think I'm weak
Cause I love today, I love today, I love today!
The sun is shining down on me,
This can't be ruined by nobody.
I just gotta keep breathing,
But I keep thinking...

I keep my space
It seems like only to fulfill your games,
I know you know that it drives me insane
Why do you insist on playing?
I'll stay away,
But I'm really hoping you'll see straight
I'm just trying to bring the sunlight out in hopes that people will forget their doubt
And know that every time they feel left out that someone's always thinking of them,
Someone's always thinking of them

Step up and be sweet,
It really don't matter if people think you're weak
Cause I love today, you love today, we all love today!
The sun is shining down on me,
And this cant be ruined by nobody.
I just gotta keep breathing,
I just gotta keep thinking,
Always thinking
Know that we're always thinking

Someone is always thinking of you,
Someone is always thinking about how much they love
Someone is always thinking,
So I am gonna keep on walking tall, walking tall
Feeling so on top of it all!

Cause we're all together up on top of the world
We're all in eachother's rear-view mirror, smiling back ever so lovingly, lovingly

Even if it was that person that you ran into on the street the other day,
He spilled some coffee on you wasn't that, wasn't that just so cute?
Even if it was that little lady crossing the street, nobody saw her coming
She was just, she was just living

I love today,
You love today,
We all love today.
Track Name: Dreaming Of You
| Dreaming Of You |

I wanna write about you.
I wish all the ways you make me feel could become real on this page,
But my words still escape.

I keep dreaming of you,
How the moon would lean down and kiss your face
Please bring me back to that space.

You, there in the night
Sweating on my sheets, all tangled up in in-betweens
With you there in that light
And nothing but the star glow and the start of living right.

I wanna wonder with you,
Dance the streets like they were built for us, long ago, we move slow
No one knows where we go

I stay covered in you.
Watch the city lights electrify every step that you take,
It's tonight that we'll make it

Through clouds just out of sight
Filling up my dreams, all tangled up in in-betweens
With you, there in that light
And nothing but the star glow and the start of living right.

Let me love you tonight,
I'll hold you close and keep you always by my side
Baby let me love you tonight,
I promise I'll keep you always, always by my side.

I keep dreaming of you.
Track Name: Tree Song
| Tree Song |

One fall day I sat beneath your withered arms,
The icy chill brought my head to face the sky
And all around the wind was dancing through you without a care,
You kept me breathing strong, you kept me breathing on.

And through the miracles each day,
Even the most horrific ways the world forgets us,
Human to human-
You've always been the warmth I need
The closest pathway to the sea,
Sending all your love through my veins and into me

You're Eucalyptus, Redwood, Cedar, Ginkgo, Oak, and Palm
Pine, Willow, Avocado, Orange, I have seen them all
As I was left still breathing, breathing in the air,
The air that we once breathed together there

Looking out as I continued on along the heavy banks that lined the river, Singing me their blues
Up and away I saw the day was fleeting,
The sky so full and stretched until it's colors grew much softer,
I knew I'd lost her.

And through the miracles each day
Even the most horrific ways the world forgets us,
Human to human-
You've always been the warmth I need
The closest pathway to the sea,
Sending all you love through my veins and into me

You're Eucalyptus, Redwood, Cedar, Ginkgo, Oak, and Palm
Pine, Willow, Avocado, Orange, I have seen them all
As I was left still breathing, breathing in the air,
The air that we once breathed together there

And as that silver sliver of the moon declares its place amongst the stars,
Your branches keep me safe, they give me faith -
Cause just like you I've lost my leaves,
Left them behind for somebody that may never know time moved too slow for me too handle.

Still you kept roots in all the ground that I have ever ventured on
You built a home on all the earth I'll ever walk upon
And all the memories of him left there still fester in the air,
An east coast breeze blown through the trees is where he'll always be...

You're Eucalyptus, Redwood, Cedar, Ginkgo, Oak, and Palm
Pine, Willow, Avocado, Orange, I have seen them all
As I was left still breathing, breathing in the air,
The air that we once breathed together there
