Track Name: Beneath The Surface
Feel the colors coming back
Into a world that's white and black
A ticket in my hand will take me anywhere
Anywhere with you my dear

Oh I dream of us on islands
Never fear the sound of violence
But we gotta leave before the morning comes
Hurry cause the sun is rising soon

I can't sleep, misbehave with me
I'll misbehave with the future you

You...

As we race against this sky
I'm letting you steer, I close my eyes
You'll keep me safe, you'll make the grey
Grow distant, fade away

Covered up with lights and lust
I never fear, in you I trust
But we gotta leave before the morning comes
Hurry cause the sun is rising soon

I can't sleep, misbehave with me
I'll misbehave with the future you

You...
Track Name: Over Our Heads
Got this shit from Hong Kong
You won't find one in L.A.
Don't ask me for the details
Can't remember anyway

Next time I'm in Tokyo
Gonna find one if I can
Seems like I spend all my life searching
Maybe I could make one up instead

I know what you are
I know what you got
I know what you are
You'll make it till you fake it
I know what you got
But what what you need we got more!

We are not in over our heads
We are inside them
We are inside
Yes we are inside them
We are not in over our heads
We are inside them
We are inside

It's not a destination
But what we got along the way
Not like instant gratification
Cuz we don't need that anyway

Next time I'm in Tokyo
Gonna find one if I can
Seems like I spend all my life searchin
Maybe I could make one up instead

I know what you are
I know what you got
I know what you are
You'll make it till you fake it
I know what you got
But what what you need we got more!

We are not in over our heads
We are inside them
We are inside
Yes we are inside them
We are not in over our heads
We are inside them
We are inside
Track Name: Vocode You
I look at you and I wonder why
You couldn't be steady easy free
Like this kick drum even if the chords change

Oh I don't wanna do a solo
I just wanna be John and Yoko
Kissing on the cover of that record

Cause without you I'm talking to myself again
Then I vocode my words and pretend it's you
And I turn blue and this is what I hear

Can you hear me?
Listen closely
Promise me that you'll try to understand
I wanna love you
God I love you
I wanna love you but I have to go away

I wake up cold in the middle of the night
I lost my cool, I think you knew
Said "I need love" then started crying in your bed

How could you leave with pieces of me?
I just wanted to be your honey
Why did you pour salt in my sugar

Cause without you I'm talking to myself again
Then I vocode my words and pretend it's you
And I turn blue and this is what I hear

[chorus]

Everything we wanted
I know I let you down...

[chorus]

I have to go away...
Track Name: Young Love
The way you make my heart race
When your blue eyes gaze on my young face
And I can't breathe but it's okay
Cause I just can't fight the feeling
It lingers on and on
Even when the evenings gone
In the morning I'm still high above, in

Young love
Maybe
I still believe
In always
Through darker day
I tried, but I can't stop thinking of you

Nothing I feel is ordinary
No, this is strong
Every word you don't say
In the spaces we belong
I've come so far, I'm home
Even when the evenings gone
In the morning I'm still high above
And the years just feel like days..

Young Love
Maybe
I still believe
In always
Through darker days
I tried, but I can't stop thinking of you
Track Name: With You
I could feel it kick in
When I saw you I knew
We exchanged our stories in a crowded room
And as you pulled me close
I was trying to keep cool
Running faster than we should
But it's okay cause I feel safe with you

What do I do?
I'm in love with you
And I feel like fool
Cause you're gone
Our hearts beat in sync and it's all I want
What can I say?
I can't live this way
Cause I keep thinking this could be right
Especially when I'm alone at night

And if you listen to Slayer
I'll learn to love you for it
It's euphoric
Don't need thunder
The lightning will stick
And I'll stay
And we'll never be the same
Running faster than we should
It's okay cause I feel safe with you

What do I do?
I'm in love with you
And I feel like fool
Cause you're gone
Our hearts beat in sync and it's all I want
What can I say?
I can't live this way
Cause I keep thinking this could be right
Especially when I'm alone at night
Track Name: Simple & Sweet
I'm not one of those girls with man after man
I could never fall in love that many times
Twice to be exact
Not likely to happen again for a while

I'd always rush over right after work
I could never get to you fast enough
You'd welcome me in
And we'd quickly begin playing records and such

On those nights it was simple and it was sweet
We were all about telling stories
Talking about futures and dreams
And it just so happened that you were both for me
You understood them all, oh you did

Remember that party
When somehow every single wine glass was broken?
I helped you clean up
Gathered my stuff and said I must be getting home
You ran after me like there was something you needed
Then you kissed me
I wanted to stay, but I floated away
And knew that so much remained

On those nights it was simple and it was sweet
We were all about telling stories
Talking about the future and dreams
And it just so happened that you were both for me
You understood them all, oh you did

Sometimes I catch myself staring across the street
Thinking about my favorite stories
Hitting play and then repeat
And it just so happens that you were everything
