Track Name: I Want To Dream With You
i want to dream with you
lying in my arms
i want our dreams to collide
to connect and combine
to become one

i want my dream to enter yours
and to make its home there

i want my dream to die
and to take yours with it
so something new can be made

i want to hold you in my arms
forever
so our dream may be kept safe
so we can watch it grow on its own

then we can let it go
and it will become its own
reality
and it will dream
and i will still be holding you
in my arms
And that is why
i want to dream with you
Track Name: Shorter Days
a bruise upon my instrument
it leaks into my fingers
and wanders on up to my face

a red spot that blemishes
the fabric of my skin
it wants to rush out of my voice

the stinging words, unhappiness
that find their way to her ears
leave me without anyone

this feeling
will not leave me
it lodges my unhappiness
leaks into my loneliness

a smile a wink a simple word
the music of her sweet voice
tramples this feeling away

the sweetest song i ever heard
makes the day much shorter
leaves me wanting more

oh good day
make this feeling go away
please fill me up with happiness
and cast away my loneliness
Track Name: Two Birds
you are
closer to me
than anyone has ever been

we are
two birds learning
how to fly
up in the sky

two birds
tumbling
falling

we fly
through rainbows and
stars and through
mountains and plains

we fly
over
the whole world

we are
two birds learning
how to fly
up in the sky

two birds
tumbling
flying
Track Name: Falling Together
raise up your head
it’s not over yet
pack away all mother’s thoughts
and just keep on hearing your heart

tell me what you see
tell me what you know
if you want me to fall with you into the hole
let’s go

do you see the sun
it’s always on the run
but when tomorrow morning comes
it’s right back where it started from

lean upon me now
let me show you how
to throw away your fear
just trust, you’ve got me here

tell me what you see
tell me what you know
if you want me to fall with you into the hole
let's go

all of your pain will be washed away
in the river of my affection
rush to my arms and i promise i will
never let you go
we could spend the years finding
souvenirs together
if you’ll let me
i will take you there

can you feel my love
like a fuel, it makes my heart
beat harder and harder and faster and faster
i promise i won’t let you go...

all of your pain will be washed away
in the river of my affection
rush to my arms and i promise i will
never let you go
hold onto my hand or you won’t understand
the things we would miss out on
just trust me i swear we’d be halfway there
before we even fell
falling together, we’re falling together
i hope we land that way...

let me hold you tight, as i say goodnight
and i love you
if you let me
i’ll always be right here

and when i’m not with you i notice
what i see in you
are not the dreams we had before
we were younger then
we had our dreams
we had belief
false belief
Track Name: Seven Hours
where are you now
just two seconds ago
you were here by my side
but now you’ve gone away

oceans are spanned
by our words
by our thoughts
by the way that you kiss me
the way that you smile

but it’s
bedtime for me
and it’s morning for you
by the time i awake
you've already lived
a full day

days ahead
will be full of life
full of conversations
full of choices like

fly back to me
or should i fly
forward
if we can’t meet
in the middle
i’ll go to you
i’ll go for you
Track Name: Wake Up To Forget
tell me i’m not dreaming
tell me you’re really here
and tell me it’s the you i knew before
because i just want to hold you
one more time

fly with me to tomorrow
i’ll show you where i meant to go
i want yesterday and tomorrow to meet
because today is where i don’t want to be
but trust me

i need to wake up
to forget
i need to grow up
‘cause i’m not ready yet

when you left
i thought you would return
but i can’t wait
i know i’ve gotta learn

i need to wake up
to forget
i need to grow up
‘cause i’m not ready yet
Track Name: Beauty
i’m in awe of your skin
the wonder of your lips
my love

your hair in the wind
and the light of the sunset on your
freckled face and hands
as we stand by the water of
the lake

so still
like it’s closed its eyes
and laid down for the night

i must say i’m in awe of all the

beauty in the world
how much
love can one man have for all the
beauty in the world
i’ve only got one heart after all

after all of the mornings
just soaked with potential

every moment a blessing
everyone a gift unopened

when the world is full of life
how could anyone not see the beauty

just think of every voice
that ever said “i love you”
and think of every face
that ever made you realize
there’s so much

beauty in the world
how much
love can one man have for all the
beauty in the world
i’ve only got one heart after all

it will take every heart
loving everyday more
and maybe if we all could see
the beauty we would all live
more beautifully

beauty in the world
how much love could everyone share
beauty in the world
together we’ve got more heart after all
