Track Name: Dreamin'
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

I'ld 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: 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
Let's 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
It's 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 it's there, past the London Eye

And I would do whatever it took
To get back that magic look
But you, were scared at least
And 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?
