Track Name: Love is the Season
Tonight,
Just might,
We try,
To fight it.

We suck,
at hide it,
You're just the type,
That's not my type.

You know you want to,
I know you want to.
You know you want me,
Just like I want you.

For whatever reason,
Love is the season,
When it comes down to,
When I'm with you.

I,
Disguise,
My awe-
Struck sighs

This cup
Keeps you
Here at my side
Tonight

You know you want to,
I know you want to.
You know you want me,
Just like I want you.

For whatever reason,
Love is the season,
When it comes down to,
When I'm with you.

You know you want to,
I know you want to.
You know you want me,
Just like I want you.

For whatever reason,
Love is the season,
When it comes down to,
When I'm with you.

I,
You're just the type,
That's not my type,
Tonight.

Tonight,
Your just the type,
That's not my type,
Tonight.
Track Name: Respect, Trust and Understanding
How to speak with you,
But not directly.
Trying hard to not to try,
But trying to be something.

I was just passing through,
But that didn't bother you.
Poolside and wondering,
What do you want to do?

There's a beautiful girl
On the back of my bike.
She wraps her arms around me tight
With cold air working on my side.
My side.

A simple squeeze
Tells me all that I could mean.
These wheels and souls
Are spinning around lifting off the ground.

Try to relax
'Cuz we're going so fast
But going nowhere we are both
So scarred so scared so unprepared.

There's a beautiful girl
On the back of my bike.
She wraps her arms around me tight
With cold air working on my side.
My side.
With cold air working on my side.
My side.

Please,
Don't, (you'd never hurt me)
Hurt me.

From the way that we speak,
I know you'd never hurt me (you'd never hurt me);
Respect and trust and understanding. (you'd never hurt me)

From the way that we speak,
I know you'd never hurt me; (you'd never hurt me)
Respect and trust and understanding.
Track Name: Live Your Life
(Live your life)
(Ahhhhhhhh)

Walking home down the road with my best friend gone.
Are the days so hard to find?
With our hands in the air,
super messed up hair,
not a care with our headphones on.

All the blondes with sunglasses on,
And the guys that they treat like pawns,
I think I'll pass but I gotta ask,
Is your life the one you want?

Set some goals you gotta raise the bar,
To find out who you really are.
It's time to take a chance,
So let's start now with this dance.

Step your left foot in.
Now jump up and down.
Step back turn-around
And clap and scream real loud.

Step your let foot in.
We all fall down.
Don't you know?

So call up your sidekick
We'll own the night with
A party

I'll drive my new whip
Pick something to sip
Along the way.

"What's up? Wanna hang out?"

Home down the road,
With my best friend gone,
Not a care with our headphones on.

Home down the road,
With my best friend gone,
Not a care with our headphones on.

Home down the road,
With my best friend gone,
Not a care with our headphones on.

(Live your life)
(Ahhhhhhhh)
Track Name: Heart is the Home
Pent up your feelings with a stronger seal,
With the intent to prevent what you know is real,
Because I know you more than I know myself and it's ugly,
But she's lovely.

And did I say I can control myself?
She puts her feelings on,
The top shelf.
Far out of reach, you turn me upside down,
With my feet in the clouds.

Trust in me now.
I'll carry your dreams carefully.
You should know when,
We talk on the phone,

That it seems like
You really know me,
And it shows.
We both know now
The heart is the home.
The heart is the home.

The better side of me can be so stubborn.
Otherwise I'd be in a van with my band for the summer.

Road map
Starry ceilings.
I've never felt so high.
These California evenings,
Are what make worlds collide.

And did I say I can control myself?
She puts her feelings on,
The top shelf.
Far out of reach, you turn me upside down,
With my feet in the clouds.

Trust in me now.
I'll carry your dreams carefully.
You should know when,
We talk on the phone,

That it seems like
You really know me,
And it shows.
We both know now
The heart is the home.
The heart is the home.
Track Name: One More Time
Put a puzzle to our hearts,
Each relationship removes a piece.
(Removes a puzzle piece)
We'd be careful 'til the last crimson,
Until we'd find each other.
Enticing us to keep our last bloody piece,
From taint or tarnish forever.

So hi,
I wonder if you'd mind,
Could I try,
To walk back in your life,
One more time?
I wonder if you'd mind,
Could I try,
To walk back in your life,
One more time.
One more time.

Hearts are what contain our souls,
And our head is what protects our hearts.
(Protect our hearts)
I don't know which to let decide,
But I do know that I'd rather play dead than die.
(I'd rather play dead than die)

It's when your head doesn't trust your heart that your soul is affected.
It isn't something that you should ever let be neglected.
It's not something you live with.
It's something you exist with.

So hi,
I wonder if you'd mind,
Could I try,
To walk back in your life,
One more time?
I wonder if you'd mind,
Could I try,
To walk back in your life?

(Instrumental break)

So hi,
I wonder if you'd mind,
Could I try,
To walk back in your life,
One more time?
I wonder if you'd mind,
Could I try,
To walk back in your life?

So hi,
I wonder if you'd mind,
Could I try,
To walk back in your life,
One more time?
I wonder if you'd mind,
Could I try,
To walk back in your life?
Track Name: Don't Go
Your independence attracts me.
You warned me from the start that this,
Day would come eventually.

I thought that I might change your mind,
But when I didn't I thought that I could just leave all of my thoughts of you behind.

You said that "it really doesn't have to be this way."
I replied "Babe you're right so why don't you just stay,"
and as you turn and go I make my final plea.

Girl don't go.
You know the world is hard enough we don't have to be alone now.
Girl don't go.
You know the world is hard enough we don't have to make it by ourselves so,
Come back baby girl now
I'm ready to work this out.

You turned to me, and said
"Boy you know you're making this so much harder than it has to be.
One of these days you're gonna learn,
that if you really loved me this wouldn't be something to keep us from being together."
"Yeah but it isn't just that easy"
"Yes it is I need this so come with me."
"I can see this working out but I still have doubts"
"Have doubts, have doubts"

Girl don't go.
You know the world is hard enough we don't have to be alone now.
Boy I know.
You know the world is hard enough we don't have to make it by ourselves so,
Come back baby girl now
I'm ready to work this out.
Track Name: West Coast is the Best Coast
Getting off work for the weekend we can't wait to see what will unfold.
Making plans with all my best friends chances are we'll end up at a punk rock show.
Mosh pits, hot chicks, I know that this,
Summer will be, summer will be like this. So,

Let's go,
Back to the times when we were so little,
And innocent

Yeah let's go,
Be unforgettable and let them know,
The west coast is the best coast.

Ahhhhhh
The summer's coming I can feel it everybody's ready.
The heart you guard I plan to steal it even though it's heavy.
Bare feet, the heat that radiates,
From the concrete cuts deep when you stay up late.
When you stay up late.
So let's stay up late,
'Cuz I can't hardly wait.

So let's go,
Back to the times when we were so little,
And innocent.

Yeah let's go,
Be unforgettable and let them know,
The west coast is the best coast. (let's go!)

Let's go,
Back to the times when we were so little,
And innocent

Yeah let's go,
Be unforgettable and let them know,
The west coast is the best coast.
Track Name: All at Once
I,
Found it unfair,
When I attempted to compare,
How easy people could find,
The kind,
Of lover that makes a lifetime,
Short enough that you don't mind,
To spend it all by their side.
(Hold on, wait, I need to tell you something)

You're all that's on my mind.
I can't believe it all the time.
Baby girl I'll be the guy to please you.

And all at once I finally realized,
I don't know why it took the time,
You're everything and more that I could ask for.

I can't believe that I could think that I would end up all alone,
But now I see that all this time that I've been wasting on my own,
You've been patiently waiting.

You're all that's on my mind.
I can't believe it all the time.
Baby girl I'll be the guy to please you.

And all at once I finally realized,
I don't know why it took the time,
You're everything and more that I could ask for.

All at once our lives can change in ways that we wouldn't think could improve it.
And I find it strange that the ones that mean the most seem to be the worst to get through it.
Now.

All at once you're all that's on my mind.
I can't believe it all the time.
Baby girl I'll be the guy to please you.

And all at once I finally realized,
I don't know why it took the time,
You're everything and more that I could ask for.
Track Name: Set Your Sights
I need to spend some time alone and sit down by my window,
And think about my life.
To figure out which way Your winds blow,
I tied a piece of tinsel,
Below a broken sign.

And it's hard,
To focus on it when,
Your breath disappears,
I say I'll stop waiting for,
Something to happen here.

I look into the mirror,
And say,

Set your sights, choose your fights, take pride in your life.
When it keeps on tugging
Won't be long, stay up strong, if you're wrong make it right.
Slow down and take your time.
Forget your past mistakes,
And stop your running,
Before you let all of this lovely life go by.

All at once my eyes are bright,
And I know that I can make it,
And we will make it.
Our next step forward,
Brings us closer to
So much more than,

The lives that we've been waiting for;
The promise that we need;
The dreams we've forgotten;
Come back with clarity,
And guide us as we sing.

Set your sights, choose your fights, take pride in your life,
When it keeps on tugging.
Won't be long, stay up strong, if you're wrong make it right.
Slow down and take your time.
Forget your past mistakes,
And stop your running,
Before you let all of this lovely life go by.
You still have time.
You still have time.
Track Name: Changing on the Inside
I've been,
Huntin'
Fiending for something real,
And it's deep inside of me.

On the,
Surface,
Of my outer shell,
You can tell I'm doing well.

I'm just fine,
I'm changing on the inside,
And the further that I go,
The more that it shows.

I've been waiting,
To put my heart,
Into,
Something new.
What's yours for taking,
With work and time could come,
To you,
What do you have to lose?

I've been,
Struggling,
To feel something real,
And I think it's killing me.

On the,
Inside,
Of my calloused shell,
I scream and I yell,
And feel,
Alone,
I can make it on my own,
And the further that I go,
The more that it shows.

I've been waiting,
To put my heart,
Into,
Something new.
What's yours for taking,
With work and time could come,
To you,
What do you have to lose?

Everything is all right now.
I'm not backing out,
Dust my shoulders off,
Put my feet back on the ground

Everything is all right now.
I don't know what you're talking about
Time to work it out,
Put our feet back on the ground.

Everything is all right now.
Serious as a heart attack,
You can still turn back,
And make your piece on common ground.

Everything is all right now.
I'm not backing out,
Dust my shoulders off,
Put my feet back on the ground.

Everything is all right now...
Track Name: DBYLAOK (Don't Break... Your Legs Are OK)
The final straw
Came back to you
And now you do all you can do

To prove to me
That now you see
How perfectly
I treated you

I never thought it would be this way
I think about you everyday
I wish this feeling would go away
This hated urge of needing you

You say that you're brand new.
You say I still love you.
Did you forget what you,
Did?

I bring myself back to the times when I was glad I wasn't right,
Because it's hard for me.
I realized,
The jealousy I felt inside,
Wasn't just a dream.

I bring myself back to the times when I was glad I wasn't right,
Because it's hard for me.
I realized,
The jealousy I felt inside,
Wasn't just a dream.

I thought that I could forget,
And now it seems that I have,
'Cuz when I think about it,
I remember the good times we had.

The pain that you caused with,
All of your lies it's
All I can take,
To not repeat the same mistake.

You say that you're brand new.
You say I still love you.
Did you forget what you,
Did?

I bring myself back to the times when I was glad I wasn't right,
Because it's hard for me.
I realized,
The jealousy I felt inside,
Wasn't just a dream.

I bring myself back to the times when I was glad I wasn't right,
Because it's hard for me.

The jealousy I felt inside,
Don't break... your legs are okay

Don't break... your legs are okay
(Because it's hard for me. I realized the jealousy I felt inside wasn't just a dream)
Don't break... your legs are okay
(I bring myself back to the times when I was glad I wasn't right)
Don't break... your legs are okay yeah yeah
(Because it's hard for me. I realized the jealousy I felt inside wasn't just a dream)
Don't break... your legs are okay yeah yeah
Don't break... your legs are okay yeah yeah
Don't break... your legs are okay
Track Name: Here With Me
Here with me!

I have the rest of my life
(So baby if you leave please believe me I will be alright)
Don't want to spend it alone
(Don't want to spend it alone)
When all I need is to know where you stand,
Before we run out of sand.

Don't want to walk away,
All alone on the backstreets baby.
I want you here with me.
(I want you here with me)
We'll take it day by day.
I've gained the strength to say
I want you here with me

So show me,
Exactly what you're made of.
I want the world to know
(I want the world to know)
Of all the beautiful things in this world.
No surprise, it's your eyes girl

Don't want to walk away,
All alone on the backstreets baby.
I want you here with me.
(I want you here with me)
We'll take it day by day.

Suddenly we break away.
This feeling is here to stay.
It will be you and me someday.
Until then I'm content to say
I want you here with me

Don't want to walk away,
All alone on the backstreets baby.
I want you here with me.

All alone on the backstreets baby.

(I want you here with me)
We'll take it day by day.
I guess it's safe to say
I want you here with me.
(Here with me!)

Here with me!
Here with me!
Track Name: Kight For Me
So, define kight.
As a noun it's something a person is passionate about that requires dedication to support or achieve.
As a verb, it's a joyful struggle that fuels passion.
Example...

The story starts in a Seattle bar
Where a figure skater meets a rock star.
They fall in love and end up married.
Have a daughter and a son named Sean.

The rocker quits the band,
To provide for them.
The figure skater loved her family first,
But then became a nurse to help make ends meet.

This is my family.
It isn't perfect but it made a man of me.
My mom and dad could be,
Anything, but instead they chose to kight for me.

"So, it means taking care of someone you love?"
"Yeah, someone or something... but, there's a catch"

You gotta love yourself,
Before you can love anybody else;
And if you question well,
Time will tell.
I give my word you'll see,
(I give my word you'll see)
How good your life can be.
You gotta love yourself,
Before you love me.

It's my philosophy.
It isn't perfect but,
It is a part of me.
Our time is short you see.
Everything is nothing without parts of you and me.

This is my family.
It isn't perfect but it made a man of me.
My mom and dad could be,
Anything, but instead they chose to kight for me.

ahhhh, ahhhh, ahhh

You gotta love yourself,
Before you can love anybody else,
And if you question well,
Time will tell.
I give my word you'll see,
(I give my word you'll see)
How good your life can be.
You gotta love yourself,
Before you love me,

And that's the way that it has to,
Be.
