Track Name: Just So New
you are just so sweet
I knew it from that first time we did meet

you are just so fine
I knew it from that very first time

to say it best
Iʼve got interest
and so I gave you mine
said to call me anytime

youʼre so new cause Iʼm so new
i want to discover if
youʼll come around again

youʼre so new cause Iʼm so new
in this town of avenues
hope the road wonʼt end

you are just so smart
i knew it right from the start

you are just so swell
want a chance get to know you well

its been a week
since we did meet
and now I wonder why
perhaps you are just shy

youʼre so new cause Iʼm so new
i want to discover if
youʼll come around again

youʼre so new cause Iʼm so new
in this town of avenues
hope the road wonʼt end

you are just so nice
so why do I need to ask my friendsʼ advice?

you were such a dream
some things are not quite what they seem

its been two weeks since we did meet
seems like an awfully long time
but I suppose that's fine

youʼre so new cause Iʼm so new
i want to discover if
youʼll come around again

youʼre so new cause Iʼm so new
in this town of avenues
hope the road wonʼt end

youʼre so new cause Iʼm so new
but Iʼm discovering that you
wonʼt come around again

youʼre so new cause Iʼm so new
in this town of avenues
seems the road does end

well who knew?
Track Name: Rangpur Tree
thought it was an orange tree
and that our love would be so sweet
but the green hint of lime,
only comes through in the spring time

will it roll right by your feet?
sweep you right off completely
like every girl you meet

oh no
its just a bit of bittersweet

it's May again that's your fate again
thereʼs no squeezing for you this season

a rangpur tree, filled with a nest of maybees
the usual teasing, for you this season(al blues)

reach up high to find some truth, within the foliage and fruits
to see what you can find, maybe an orange or a lime

it's both
it's just bit of bittersweet

it's May again that your fate (dismay) again
thereʼs no squeezing for you this season
a rangpur tree, filled with a nest of maybees
the usual teasing, for you this season (al blues)

all blue

If it's a lie and it's a lie,
Iʼm thinking sweet thoughts all the time
it's bitter too
when Iʼm not with you
and so Iʼve got the seasonal blues

all blue
it's just a bit of bittersweet
Track Name: Hesitations
draw out the last lines of our conversation
until weʼve sketched a grid of out quiet hesitation
but power grids will often fail
and backup plans they fail as well
and in the dark is where weʼll find
out what is really on our minds

make your move before I move away
make your move, though I cannot stay (say all you need to say)
donʼt need a point to follow or an
end in sight to start
light the wick up
right before we part

before I leave to somewhere only stamps can keep us touch,
replacing the embrace I wished came from our lingering hugs
lets fill up the time with what is on your mind,
and the xo on the page
not a board game - no need to guess
“I do feel the same”

so we say goodbye
and I wonder why
its not our time

make your move before I move away
make your move, though I cannot stay (say all you need to say)
donʼt need a point to follow or an
end in sight to start
light the wick up
right before we part
Track Name: Permafrost
Always search for the hidden ro***
Be brave and reveal some proof
of what is waiting inside
because its there, past the London Eye

and I would do whatever it took
to get back that magic look
but you, were scared at least
but you know I tried everything

They say you're no good for me but I know I'm good for you
They say you're no good for me but I know I'm good for you
Tell me the truth, are you good for me too?
Tell me the truth, will you be good to me too?

you gave up because of what you felt,
wanted to stop because my heart might melt
but to lose, would mean to just get lost
and heading over the permafrost (with you)

They say you're no good for me but I know I'm good for you
They say you're no good for me but I know I'm good for you
Tell me the truth, are you good for me too?
Tell me the truth, will you be good to me too?

They say you're no good for me (but I know)
They say you're no good for me (but I know)

They say you're no good for me but I know I'm good for you
They say you're no good for me but I know I'm good for you
Tell me the truth, are you good for me too?
Tell me the truth, will you be good to me too?
Track Name: Dreamin'/Wonderin'
my bedroom wall's covered up with: pictures,
some things I have cut out,
and with postcards sent by friends,
as they were wandering about

I've got flags of many nations,
and maps of US states,
but I know there is no place,
for a night light turned on too late...

Cause I do dream, and I do want,to awaken and recall,
and I won't let it keep me up instead of
keeping my nights full
of the memory of you holding me.

I keep on holding on to you, just holding me.

It won't keep me from my dreams, cause sleep is all I need
It won't keep me from my dreams, cause sleep is all I need

rather stare into your eyes than stare up at the ceiling
And if I wake up and you're there I'll know I'm still dreaming
I'll know I'm still dreaming

Cause I do dream, and I do want,to awaken and recall,
and I won't let it keep me up instead of
keeping my nights full
of the memory of you holding me.

I keep on holding on to you, just holding me.

I keep dreaming every night and you are all I see
Track Name: (Shoobie Doo) Won't You?
if I ask you then oh wont you,
do the things I hope you will do?
we both know that you won't do
anything that you wouldn't do
unless you wanted to
shoobie doo waa

you won't show up all and
if you do its 10 past 4
and we were always meant to meet at 2
you have a funny way with words
you never mean what I thought I heard
but doesn't mean that I don't know you're true

if I ask you then oh wont you,
do the things I hope you will do?
we both know that you won't do
anything that you wouldn't do
unless you wanted to
shoobie doo waa

shoobie doo waa...

You've never been one to plan
even though I hope you can
stick to what you say you want to do

So while I'm waiting by the door
you've changed your mind from just before
and I wonder why I'm still waiting
and why it is that i'm still wanting
and when it might be that you might come through…

if I ask you then oh wont you,
do the things I hope you will do?
we both know that you won't do
anything that you wouldn't do
unless you wanted to
shoobie doo waa

if I ask you then oh wont you,
do the things I hope you will do?
we both know that you won't do
anything that you wouldn't do
unless you wanted to
shoobie doo waa

shoobie doo waa….
