Track Name: Surfboard
In a hammock
On the shores of a passing dream
Working up the courage
Feel the flutter of the wind in me

Feet on the coral
Deep undertow
Mystery pulling me

Just a mirage
Heat waves arising
All feels surreal indeed

Somebody once told me
I'd be there again
And you know, they're right
They're right, they're right, they're right
Somebody once told me
The way that time could bend
Like the breaking tide
So white, so white, so white

Deep under the water where the pressure is rising
She makes my mind wave theta like the rolling sea

Do you even know how
Time burns up like beach fire?
Native-like we danced before the stars

On the moonlit dunes of sand
We laid down laid down
On the boardwalk when you let it all out all out
The cliff top vision of our lives made longer

And the evening air was feeling so right, so right
And we stayed up talking for the long night, long night
Fireflies circled round our heads like starlight
Track Name: Stay Young
You said lately
There's music and we gotta face it
Melody strung with complacence
What a brave new world
In which savages hide

Such amazement
That no one bids them time

Walking on the byway
Humming low
Pattern of the nimble notes strung staccato
Broken up like glass bottles
Bound together by a dreamer's
Passion flow
Why don't we think like Barlow
Look afar and focus in,
Telephoto

Pack up and let's go

Stay young
Run into the wild with us
Wait don't rush
I'll take you to the places I know

You said maybe
One day we'll stop being jaded
Worried, thinking we're not
Living up to somebody else
Only a stranger
Who you're following

Awake from lucid state
To the passing train
Jump your fate

Walking on the byway
Humming low
Pattern of the nimble notes strung staccato
Broken up like glass bottles
Bound together by a dreamer's
Passion flow
Why don't we think like Barlow
Look afar and focus in,
Telephoto

Head for the unknown

Stay young
Run into the wild with us
Wait don't rush

All the seasons wait for this sunrise
Ooh I can see it
Seeping through the windows through the blinds
Now I know it's time to stay young

Stay young
Run into the wild with us
Find a reason
I'll take you to the places I know
Track Name: Con Amore
Sidewalk shuffling
They can't believe it
All the people wondering
Why we play for free
Blessing others

Warming up my fingers
In my left coat pocket
Thinking of the next way
Father will use me
Keep the heart
From waiting over time
Carpet corners seek and you will find

I'm leaving you con amore
It's better the less you know
God will reveal it
Pull you in con amore
He will satisfy
You better believe it

Dim lit corridor
Near an emporium
Out of business
Keeping your list till you fly
Out on the stage

Ticking telling stories in a circle
With your hand upon the number
That you want to turn back -
Back to a lovelier time

Can I take you where you want to be?
Where will you reside?
Much is there to find

With the wind in the west
Of the wandering harmony
Like the waves
I will reach you

In a far away town
Where the symphony
Plays for you
Through the night
Nature whispers

Held up by the normal
Get out in the world and breathe

And you think that you want to remain for security
Can it last
For a lifetime

When the walls
Hinder me from all my
Creativity
Swimming out
Where my mind flows

Held up by the normal
Get out in the world and breathe

Take me where I regain my sight
Water rushing over my eyes
Can I be where I am inside?
Is this all a fantasy
Or is this what I'm meant to believe
Track Name: All I've Ever
This indulgence is
So temporary
Movie theaters
And new brand name things

Spend an evening
Looking out for me
And I stick to who they say
I'm supposed to be
And I later think I need a someone Who won't let me go
Let me go

All I've ever known
Kept me from myself
All my dreams
Traffic lights all shone
All I've ever done
Crossed trails all blazed
Already there
Already hoping for a change
And I know
Oh I know
That it's true for us
Already there
Already finding a new way

In the back of parked cars
Thoughts flowing
I look through photos

Spend the evening looking back in time
And I look for reason to arrest my mind
And I take a step to follow suit with who I was on my phone

For a minute I sought to be another
But I found myself mirroring a lie

Ooh paint your path with light
Ooh no two strokes alike

Oh I find it
The path that was set for me all along
Track Name: Time & Time Again
Taking the news like gospel
Father said to go
Time and time again

Jumping out the way
Tripping on iron
We're pressing coins beneath the train
Just for the craze

Miracles all around me
Show I'm where I need to be
Time and time again

Swinging ropes in May
Smooth like a river
Like the snow melting in spring I felt it slow down life for me
Okay
Let me tell you what I thought about it when the people
who believed me turned the other way
Okay
When I turned the corner, took the phone,
and heard the words I knew my wanting was now credible

Miracles all around me show I'm where I need to be

Taking the news like gospel
Father said to go
Waiting until I surely heard the "no"
But places were falling into spaces
Strong as stone
Time and time again

Look out the window in flight
Over the clouds and sunshine
Sleep pulls me down but
I fight it, fight it

Curvature riding the globe
The shadows blur down below
From summer to where it's snowing
Track Name: Reverie
Driving down near the ocean
On rocky cliffs
And roads that wind
Spending our days in moments
Like this one

When times are getting heavy
We pull over to watch the sun beams
One day I'll look back on it
Discover magic I was missing

Take my word for it
The view from up here is incredible
Walking hand in hand
So as to not slip on the rocky slope
I couldn't have let you go

Singing out in song
In the back of a moving car
With all the passing blurring lights
In glazing eyes
Running from whatever
In the dark and sloping weather
As we're
Slipping into reverie

When eyelids get so heavy
We drift on shoulders of our family
Late night stops, up we're joking
Something about the air elating

Shooting stars
And passing cars
Holding shutters open just to
Capture what's fleeting and far
You had your hand
Around my arm
We laid there silent by the car
I realized I'm
Too busy wasting time on
Wasting time on me
When I could be wasting time on
Wasting time on you
You won me over

Driving down near the ocean
The salty air and spirits rise
Something that can't be broken
Held up by moments like this one
