Track Name: Stranger
I want to get out
I want to shout
Until you start listening
Until you stop what you're doing

I want to breathe free
I want to see
All the colors in view
I'm just a man passing through

Are you listening?
Cause I want to say something
Do you know what it's like
to hurt on the inside?

Are you listening?
Cause they're trying to say something
Do you know what's like
To fight on the inside?

Cause I'm hanging on all of your lines
Like they'll even make a difference this time
I'm wanderer but you call me lost
I'm wanderer but you call me lost
And I'll probably be stranger when I see you

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah...

I want to get out
I want to doubt
I’ll carry your shoes through the street
I’m not the one in need

Are you listening?
Cause I want to say something
Do you know what it's like
To hurt on the inside?

Are you listening?
Cause they're trying to say something
Do you know what's like
To fight on the inside?

Cause I'm hanging on all of your lines
Like it even makes a difference this time
I'm wanderer but some call me lost
I'm wanderer but some call me lost
And I'll probably be stranger when I see you

You get on your way
I’ll watch the back door
You get on your way
And bust down the front door

Cause I'm hanging on all of your lines
Like it even makes a difference this time
I'm wanderer but some call me lost
I'm wanderer but some call me lost
And I'll probably be stranger when I see you

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah...
Track Name: Old Train
I am on an old train from Marburg to Sante Fe
And I wonder
I've bee on the run for way too long
And I wonder where you gone

Meet where we found love
Cause that's the only place that my heart is from
Meet me where you know
But it's up to you cause I can't show

I miss your smile and I miss your sound
Yeah, I miss your smile and I miss your sound

I am on an old train from Marburg to Sante Fe
And I wonder just where you are
I wonder

Meet where we found love
Cause that's the only place that my heart is from
Meet me where you know
But it's up to you cause I can't show

I miss your smile and I miss your sound
Yeah, I miss your smile and I miss your sound
Track Name: Stars and Sandbars
There were stars and sandbars at our feet
We would climb on rooftops above the streets
And gave out

There were falls and mountains that led to streams
We always said we would live among the trees
And gaze out

But we were stranded in-between
And we didn't want to say we were dying inside
That we were fighting for our lives

We were holding, holding on
Underneath a golden sun
We were holding, holding on
Underneath a golden sun

Didn't you know
Didn't you know
We were somewhere in-between

There were long drives and we didn't know
We were given chances and we didn't show
Come home now
There were letters you sent and you wrote in code
We had pictures made of places we'd go
Please write now

But we were stranded in-between
And we didn't want to say we were dying inside
That we were fighting for our lives

We were holding, holding on
Underneath a golden sun
We were holding, holding on
Underneath a golden sun
Track Name: Summertime
Old country roads that lead from the back of our house
I'll pack our load and I'll take you out of this town
Summer is filled with gold light as the stereo plays out
We don't know where we'll roam but we'll take the scenic route

Oh, and I'll be here for a thousand years
Oh, and I'll be here- summer is drawing near

Hey, hey

Old wooden posts where you posed for photos I kept
Paintings you sold in a town where we stopped to rest
Winter's grown cold but I can still feel your warmth in our bed
Words written in bold on a card that I found on my chest

Oh, and I'll be here for a thousand years
Oh, and I'll be here - summer is drawing near

Do you feel my love?
Does is it reach you far above?
Do you hear my voice?
Does it reach you through the noise when it rains and it storms?

Summertime
Summertime

Oh, and why?
Because I'm going to love you like I can
Oh, and why?
Love you more than I can stand

Oh, and I'll be here for a thousand years
Oh, and I'll be here - summer is drawing near

Do you feel my love?
Does is it reach you far above?
Do you hear my voice?
Does it reach you through the noise when it rains and it storms?

Summertime
Track Name: Forward
I remember it well
I remember it well

I remember open roads
Long drives we were alone
I remember you called us roamers
I remember it all

I remember your taste
Trace your legs up to your lips
I remember you call it over
I remember it all

And the ground swallowed the sun at the end of the day
And the galaxies rose at the end of the day

So look forward and don't look back
Not to the times we used to have
Look forward and don't look back
I know
Oh yeah, I know

I remember it well
I remember it well

And the ground swallowed the sun at the end of the day
And the galaxies rose at the end of the day
Track Name: Cold Night
It's quiet in the cabin
As silent as you left it
I would love it if you wanted
I would say something if you want it
As you can tell I'm not doing well
Please don't blame yourself

Cold night
I drink
Cold night
I think
of only you
holding you

Cold night
I drink
Cold night
I think
of only you
holding you

I believe that we can make it
You know that it's worth the waiting
I believe that we can make it
I always miss you in the cold night
Miss you in the cold night

I can feel the winter cold
I can feel it all
I would love it if you wanted
I would hold ya if you wanted
I won't turn the heater on
I would rather feel the cold

Cold night
I drink
Cold night
I think
of only you
holding you

Cold night
I drink
Cold night
I think
of only you
holding you


I believe that we can make it
You know that it's worth the waiting
I believe that we can make it
I always miss you in the cold night
Miss you in the cold night
Track Name: Stay In Bed
Summer light breaks on a London night
You and I hide for the time
With the lights on
With the lights on
Baby

Morning light breaks and the city finds
That nothing's changed in the night
With the lights off
With the lights off
Yep

And oh
I just want to stay with you
And oh
We can play it all aloof

Cause we don't have to go, no, no, no
What lies outside, we already know, yeah, yeah
We don't have to believe all those lies
That say we have to go

So let's stay in bed
Why don't we just stay in bed
C'mon let's stay in bed
Why don't we just stay in bed

Phone call, fake cough and you smile
Your last sick day for awhile
Turn the lights off
Turn the lights off, baby

Roll back, kiss your lips, and I sigh
I am your acolyte
With the lights on
With the lights on
Yep

And oh
I just want to stay with you
And oh
We can play it all aloof

Cause we don't have to go, no, no, no
What lies outside, we already know, yeah, yeah
We don't have to believe all those lies
That say we have to go

So let's stay in bed
Why don't we just stay in bed
C'mon let's stay in bed
Why don't we just stay in bed

We don't have go, oh, oh
No, we don't have to go, oh, oh
No, we don't have to go, no

And stay in bed
Why don't we just stay in bed
C'mon let's stay in bed
Why don't we just stay in bed
Track Name: Spark
I know our spark it will out burn our lifetime
I just want to know where it goes
I know that we will out shine the nighttime
I just want to hold you close
I just want to know where we'll go

I know that when I wake up sometimes
I roll over to kiss your nose
I know that when we said goodbye the last time
I looked back and left my home
Looked back and left our home

And I can't help from thinking we should stay a little bit longer
And I can't help from thinking life is just a little bit sweeter with you
And I can't help from thinking

I know I can't forget our little pastimes
All of your notes and memos
I know that we were cut short of our time
What to do now, God only knows
I just want hold you close

And I can't help from thinking we should stay a little bit longer
And I can't help from thinking life is just a little bit sweeter with you
And I can't help from thinking

We've come too far
We've come too close
We've come too far
We've come too close

I know our spark it will out burn our lifetime
I just want to know where it goes
Track Name: Lost
Slipping sideways dancing through the airport terminal
Heavy helvetica, a pen, and paper that you wrote
My heart's breaking without even reading a word that I own
Sitting silently, slide out the paper, moving slow
Wishes, what could haves, why didn'ts, and it hits home
A spotlight shines light, do you remember ocean air
Well, I do

Oh, I was lost
Oh, I was falling for ya
Oh, What will it cost
To see you in the end
And to not be lost

Weary wondering, we're walking in the moonlight
Lovely laughter lingering and we sit side by side
Never knowing and not caring we let time go by
Now it hurts
Sitting shuddering, there's something that we have to say
Circumstances avoid chances and we played it safe
The air feels cold, you sit alone, and you watch the waves
And I'm here

Oh, I was lost
Oh, I was falling for ya
Oh, What will it cost
To see you in the end
And to not be lost

Oh, all alone
Oh, all alone
To see you in the end and to not be lost
Oh, all alone
To see you in the end and to not be lost

Oh, I was lost
Oh, I was falling for ya
Oh, What will it cost
To see you in the end
And to not be lost
Track Name: I Miss You
I can't stop thinking about the time we had
I can't stop thinking about how I want to go back
Everything was effortless on the path with only us
There were things I should have said
There were things I should have done
But oh dammit I walked away
Oh dammit you walk away

And I miss you
And I miss you

I would try hard to make our time last
I would try hard to make you laugh
But were good at holding it back
Which in turn would make me laugh
There were times we sat and stared
We had nothing prepared
No telling what a love would
Oh no we couldn't change a thing

And I miss you
And I miss you

We felt time slipping away
But we didn't have the words to say
As we stood in the driveway
I held your hand
And you held my hand

Then we walked away

There were things I should have said
There were things I should have done
But oh dammit I walked away
Oh dammit you walk away

And I miss you
