Track Name: Alive
I don’t have to fall asleep
When I want to dream
I’ve been over counting sheep
Numbers felt too absolute for me

They don’t own my time for it’s mine
And only mine to waste
I may be lost but I’d thrive
If you’d just let me be brave

They’ll never understand
The spirit that compels me
I’m the leader of my band
And I don’t need your blessing
I’d sit on shards of glass
Before I do your bidding
I won’t die
Before I know that I’m alive

I need outside air to breathe
There is glory in mundanity
Just a dose of morning calm
I’ll be ready for calamity

They don’t own my life for it’s mine
And only mine to waste
I may be lost but I’ll be fine
Rather be lost than be tamed

They’ll never understand
The spirit that compels me
I’m the leader of my band
And I don’t need your blessing
I’d sit on shards of glass
Before I do your bidding
I won’t die
Before I know that I’m alive


Let me sit next to the window
Give me sunlight and I will grow
I may wander to and fro but
Please just let me go


They’ll never understand
The spirit that compels me
I’m the leader of my band
And I don’t need your blessing
I’d sit on shards of glass
Before I do your bidding
I won’t die
Before I know that I’m alive
Track Name: Here to Stay
Painted hands
Skin that hides
Speaking tongues that flip and fold like paper
Oh do we seem alright?

We bow our heads
and kneel down low
whispering words that seem to rise like vapor
You wonder what we know

Oh you heard we're coming
and we're bringing something through the back door
and you best start running
cuz we don't cause nothing but uproar
so stay awake
we're here to stay
oh you heard we're coming
and we're taking something that was once yours

Brows of sweat
fingers rough
reaching for the stars way in the distance
like they belong to us
We multiply
and stay too close
draining every drop left in the system
so that our seeds may grow


Oh you heard we're coming
and we're bringing something through the back door
and you best start running
cuz we don't cause nothing but uproar
so stay awake
we're here to stay
oh you heard we're coming
and we're taking something that was once yours


Oh you heard we're coming
and we're bringing something through the back door
and you best start running
cuz we don't cause nothing but uproar
so stay awake
we're here to stay
oh you heard we're coming
and we're taking something that was once yours
oh you heard we're coming
and we're taking something that was once yours
oh you heard we're coming
and we're taking something that was once yours
Track Name: Smolder
Every time I walk away
I think about the mess we made
and I just have to clean that shit up

Every time I look at you
I think about all we've been through
and I just can't give it all up

Cuz you look so sweet
when we're all sound asleep
but I'm so tired of our dreams

When the party is over
and we start to get sober
will we still have that smolder
or will we just get older

Every time I feel alive
I think about how we would ride
each night till our fuel would run out
Now I can hardly look at you
and sometimes you are colder than the moon
is this the heaven that they fuss about

When the party is over
and we start to get sober
will we still have that smolder
or will we just get older

Did you notice when we broke this
that I don't have no glue left for you
Been wide awake babe
and you slept too late
knowing that I'd be waiting for you
waiting for you

When the good days are over
and we start to walk slower
will i still have your shoulder
when we get older?
Track Name: Young
Sometimes I lay up at night
Wondering what is it become of you and I
What lies ahead of us
So much to think about that my head's feeling light
Come by and I'll rest it on your shoulder
Just stay for a while and we'll hide from getting older

Don't want to think about what may wait for us
Nine to five, overtime, lots of growing up
Things can change but can we stay the way we are
Young and naive, hopes and dreams and love in our hearts
One day we will succeed in conquering the world
but right now I am content with being your girl

I got my things to do
and I know that you have your own
I got my ambitions
and we both know you have your goals
but can't we have it all?
We do we have to dream so small?


Don't want to think about what may wait for us
Work all day, bills to pay, lots of growing up
Things can change but can we stay the way we are
Young and naive, hopes and dreams and love in our hearts
One day I'll pay the rent with this guitar
You'll win the lottery and drive a fancy car
One day I'll pack my bags and sail around the world
But right now I am content with being your girl
