Track Name: All My Life
I’ve come to love you
In the nick of time
My heart was in shambles
My hands were tied
You painted me a picture
So green and bright
If dreams are for lovers
Kiss me goodnight

All my life
I’ve been looking for someone like you
Let’s hit the road
We’ll go fast or steady
I don’t mind as long as it’s with you

Your love is like a meadow
In the summertime
I don’t mind the winter
As long as you’re mine
Let’s walk down the alley
I’ll hold your hand
I’ll sing you a love song
Played by the band

All my life
I’ve been looking for someone like you
Let’s hit the road
We’ll go fast or steady
I don’t mind as long as it’s with you

I feel so good
You make me feel so good
Track Name: I Do It
You don’t listen
To a single word I have to say
To the little clues I threw your way
So much for feeling oh so great
If I picked a time
Oh tell me, tell me would you wait
Though I know that you will hesitate
Just go ahead, I’ll take the choo-choo train

I do it honey cause you’re oh so beautiful
I do it honey cause you’re the best love I know
But you’re the bullet and I’m the trigger
Dada dum (3x)

You seem to have me
Round your finger oh it’s such a shame
How we linger on a silly game
Why don’t we stop, why don’t we stop right now
Lay here with me
Don’t you fight it let me take you there
When I stare at you why can I not tell
If you need me or this is just your spell

I do it honey cause you’re oh so beautiful
I do it honey cause you’re the best love I know
But you’re the bullet and I’m the trigger
Dada dum (3x)
Track Name: She Knows
He thought that he was wise
Taking corners to the finish line
He’s in denial
Oh he needs a reservoir for all his goals
Time is so not a friend
Cause he’s stuck between a polygraph
And childhood facts
Yet he’d break his back for all that he lacks

She knows
But doesn’t really care
If he’s breaking down or holding on
She wants to give him just another chance
To prove his worth, yet he won’t understand

He gave his mind to lust
At the corner of May avenue
Where youths go nude
Oh he stayed around just for a kiss or two
Proceeded, let it in
Wagged his tail
While he lost his trail
She’s mused in pain
But he’s so clueless of the rain.

She knows
But doesn’t really care
If he’s breaking down or holding on
She wants to give him just another chance
To prove his worth, yet he won’t understand
She knows
But doesn’t really care
If he’s breaking down or holding on
Oh she knows that once he hits the ground
Time out, light out
She’s never coming back around


Oh do you know who this man could be
Oh do you know how to set him free
I know that his words are growing cold
I know that his thoughts have made him rogue
I know that his bones are growing old
His thoughts have made him so rogue
Track Name: Honey
The circus inside her head
Holds me where I stand
She’s like fireworks in July
Intoxicating lullabies
Oh she blooms
Yes she blooms

Honey when you call me babe
Oh you make me so free
Darling when you call me honey
Oh you make me so weak

If only days were longer I’d dance like I were younger
Her solemn glow of wonder
My lighthouse and my thunder
Oh she blooms
Yes she blooms

Honey when you call me babe
Oh you make me so free
Darling when you call me honey
Oh you make me so weak

I’ve got no where to go
And no need to go alone
Track Name: Give It All
Is it hard
To walk in your shoes
Show me how you feel
Your fragile heart
Is hard to hold on to
Take it slow with me

I don't know how far we'll go
Cause I've been so high and so low
But I'll give it all I've got

Are you lost behind the shadow
Of what you want and need
Could it be a prayer to find love
Within you and I


You don't know how far we'll go
Cause you've been so high and so low
But I'll give it all I've got
