Track Name: Backgrounds
I want to say
Something to you
but infatuation
Keeps my mouth glued

This time I'll watch for how you move
I tend to
Fall for an ideal
that is not real
but I can't help how I feel.

We both arrive with different backgrounds.
Nothing is certain when you come around but a mood
I bet we both have nothing to lose
yet I would if I could choose

You play it safe I keep my sails down
My compass spins where will I be found
Next to you the sea is such a radiant blue
Like the eyes we both see through

I want to know
Your point of view
From held on high
To misconstrued

The type of lens that I look through
Tends to focus on ideals
That you might shield
It makes me come undone.

We both arrive with different backgrounds.
Nothing is certain when you come around but a mood
I bet we both have nothing to lose
yet I would if I could choose

You play it safe I keep my sails down
My compass spins where will I be found
Next to you the sea is such a radiant blue
Like the eyes we both see through
Track Name: Literate Bae
You cross my mind
Only all the time
I had to write you some love lines

We like to talk
About being grown up
And the different bands that we should hear

I wish you lived near
I wish you were right here

Cuz everything you say
Can make or break my day
When you're so literal
You got the look that look
that'll keep me from my book
If you don't watch what you say
The combination of words I always wanted to say

You're such a literate bae

One day we'll meet
And a kiss will greet
Your cheek for that look in your eye

You'll be in my life
and I'll make you no strife
Nor the type of pain we've both felt lately

I like you living near
I like it right here
I like the way you whisper in my ear
"would you be mine?"

Cuz everything you say
Can make or break my day
When you're so literal

You got the look that look
that'll keep me from my book
If you don't watch what you say
The combination of words I always wanted to say

You're my favorite girl and I want you to stay
So just grab onto me and we'll drift away

Cuz everything you say
Can make or break my day
When you're so literal

You got the look that look
that'll keep me from my book
If you don't watch what you say
The combination of words I always wanted to say

You're my favorite girl and I want you to stay
So just grab onto me and we'll drift away

You're such a literate bae.

You cross my mind
Only all the time
I had to write you some
Love lines
Track Name: Say Anything
The phone rang.
I read your name.

Butterflies. You said,
"Come if you can."

Typical.
Restaurants and matinees.

Just to hold you,
And feel this way.

I'll lay still and endure some pain.
Your touch will make it go away.

It goes away.

This sunrise.
We're on display.

Through windows,
That hide our face.

I asked you,
"Are you awake? Should we go?"
You said "No, let's stay."

I'll lay still and endure some pain.
Your touch will make it go away.
Your eyes close.
Here we remain.
Lovers hiding, waiting to say...

Say anything.
Say anything.

I'll lay still and endure some pain.
Your touch will make it go away.
Your eyes close.
Here we remain.
Lovers hiding, waiting to say...

Say anything.
Say anything.
Track Name: 92 Days
Song: 92 Days
Artist: Kight

I had this girl she
Rocked my world for
92 days October till my birthday

She liked to laugh at me and she,
Liked the way I sang along with all the,
Old songs that no one else would know but me.

I was amazed at the way we would lay around all day
My arm would fall asleep so I would turn to her and say
”Hey babay

If you’re happy then I am too.
If you’re happy then this will do.”

54 more days and I,
Had to say “We need a break cuz…” Well,
I was making lots of little mistakes.

She looked at me like a,
little puppy and my heart just had to break so,
I asked her back in 2 more days.

I told her how I felt and
All of it was true.
And when she took me back she,
Turned to me and said,
“Hey babay…

If you’re happy then I am too.
If you’re happy then this will do.
We both have made mistakes and
Your touch is what I crave
I love your way”

Our love was in full bloom,
But something changed in me and you.
So I turned to you and said,
“Hey babay…

If you’re happy then I am too.
If you’re happy then this will do.
We both have made mistakes and
Now it’s time to say
Goodbye babay…
Goodbye babay… Oh hoewhoawhoa
Goodbye babay.”
Track Name: Heart of Gold
Here I am letting go just to watch how things unfold.
Every plan I've ever made did contain forces that we can't control.

I,
I have been told that a heart made of gold never shivers.
You,
You and I know sure as the wind that blows we are sinners.

Where do we go when we dream when we're sleeping?
How do we know where we go isn't an oversight.
These types of thoughts I've been recently thinking,
Open,open my mind.
Hope, hope is a friend of mine.
Time, time never rewinds.
So I'll look and I'll look 'til I find.

Here I am wanting more, more than I could ever afford.
It's hard to justify when I realized what all of this is for.

Now I cherish the times that the love that's inside of us is lifted.
Like when, you remember the time that I drove you to town with your sister.

Where do we go when we dream when we're sleeping?
How do we know where we go isn't an oversight.
These types of thoughts I've been recently thinking,
Open,open my mind.
Hope, hope is a friend of mine.
Time, time never rewinds.
So I'll look and I'll look 'til I find.

I know where you might want to go.
Please don't give away your heart of gold.
It might hurt you to know that I see you letting go.

Where do we go when we dream when we're sleeping?
How do we know where we go isn't an oversight.
These types of thoughts I've been recently thinking,
Open,open my mind.
Hope, hope is a friend of mine.
Time, time never rewinds.
So I'll look and I'll look 'til I find.

Look 'til I find
Look 'til I find
Look 'til I find
