Track Name: Stay
I don’t count the minutes
Don’t keep track of days
And I don’t worry so much
When you’re away

Babe you make my smile come easy
Baby you take my breath away
You have got my heart completely
I won’t say forever
But if you don’t mind I’d love for you to stay.

I don’t stay up late at night
And I don’t pace the floor
And I don’t wonder
who could love you more

Babe you make my smile come easy
Baby you take my breath away
You have got my heart completely
I won’t say forever
But if you don’t mind I’d love for you to stay.

Baby you make my smile come easy
Baby you take my breath away
You’ve got my heart completely
I won’t say forever
But if you don’t mind I’d love for you to stay.
Track Name: Worse for the Weather
What am I supposed to do
Now that things have come unglued
Needle in hand Tryin to mend
It all back together

Where I am supposed to stay
Now that it is not okay
To be where I am and my best laid plans
As fickle as the weather

Over time, this will not matter at all
Its over now, just waiting for someone to break my fall

What am I supposed to say
Words like rivers run away
Flooding my tongue and I’m overcome
By my latest disaster

Who am I supposed to be
Treading water in futility
Drowning in mud
I’m bleeding my love
Cause you said forever

Over time, this will not matter at all
Its over now, just waiting for someone to
Look me straight in the eye
Love me without asking why
I need a reason to cry
Take my heart in their fist
Wipe away your last kisses
Make me forget just how hard this is

What am I supposed to do
Is there any getting over you?
I’m moving my feet
Right left repeat
Into the horizon

And what am I supposed to see
Freedom spreadin out
Ahead of me
My world has changed
But I will remain
No worse for the weather

Over time, this will not matter at all
Its over now, just waiting for someone to break,
waiting for someone to break
waiting for someone to break
my fall
Track Name: Savior
I could just apologize
I could tell everybody lies
And you could be the brightest star
Like you were at the start
Melting me down the door
But you are not my savior

I could live my life for you
I could die the same way too
And maybe we wouldn’t come so far
Just to break apart
Washed up along the shore
you are not my savior

Savior, save yourself the trouble
Savior, save yourself some face
I wish I could keep myself from falling for you
With such amazing grace

I could just apologize
I could tell everybody lies
And I could be the brightest star and shine down where you are
But I’m not what you’re searching for.
And you are not my
You are not my
You are not my savior.
Track Name: Peter Pan
Hey Peter Pan
Where has your shadow gone to?
and here I am, in its place

This Tinkerbell
I've given all my dust to fools
and Wendy never stays

I'll give you my wings
So you can fly
cause I love to watch your face
as you soar through the night
and I'll wait here
Burning Bright

Hey Peter Pan
You got so damn hard to hold on to
and here I am lost

This Tinkerbell
I only want to fly with you
but you were my happy thought

I gave you my wings
so you can fly
cause I know how you love
to soar through the night
and I'll wait here
Burning Bright

Second star to the right
couldn't rival this fairies light
straight on past a million mornings
and a million more midnights
I will be right where I am
even if I burn a hole where I stand
I will wait forever
even if he Never never lands
Even if even if he never never lands
Even if even if he never never lands
Even if even if he never never lands

I'll give you my wings
so you can fly
cause I know how much you love
to soar through the night
and I'll wait here

Even if even if he never never lands
Even if even if he never never lands
Even if even if he never never lands
Track Name: Coffee and Conversation
Every day I live I feel I get a little bit older
Every day goes by I feel more and more I’m wastin my time
And then you walk in
With your coffee and conversation
And nobody knows that we’re perfect strangers
And I may be seeing you for the first and the last time

Every time I go I feel like I’m starting over
Every question just the same, just the same sad lines
And then you walk in
With your coffee and conversation
And nobody ever dares to cross the lines
And I may be seeing you for the first and last time

And oh, it not me its you
Or oh everything is fine
All I want is a no whip latte and some god damn peace of mind

Every time I go out I feel like I’m starting over
Every day goes by I feel more and more like I’m wastin my time
And you walk in
We have coffee and conversation
And soon I am steeped in your distaste or desperation
Nobody know that we’re perfect strangers
And nobody dares to cross the lines
And I may be meetin you for the first and the last time
