Track Name: It's True
Close your eyes, just pretend we are flying
Be so sure, don't look behind
Suspend your science

I'm afraid that I can't let you go
There's a moon in the water down below
You know it's true, you know it's true

Once we arrive we'll carefully unwind
And sleep like lions
We'll wake to find clear, clear blue skies
And space wide open

We can make it all up as we go
Just a moonlight mile or so down the road
It's true, you know it's true

I would rather be staring at the sun until I go blind than lose you to anyone
I can see you in the movies of my mind over and over again

I won't be surprised to read the story of our lives
We'll save the ending

And you can't say that we didn't try
Every move with our arms open wide
You know it's true, you know it's true
You know it's true, because it's true
You know it's true, because it's true
Track Name: Dutudu
You push me over the hill again
And I was leading you in the right direction
It's making me feel alright
Now I'm dusty and prone to accidents
I can't trust you your soul is black
Pretending, that everything seems alright

Dutudu, dutudu, doo-doo
Dutudu, doo-dutudu, doo-doo dutudu...

All I need is a friend I can lean on
All I want is the end of all this lying
That would make me feel alright
Can't you feel it's kind of creeping in
Essentially I'm at a loss for words again
But everything seems alright

Dutudu, dutudu, doo-doo
Dutudu, doo-dutudu, doo-doo dutudu, dutu-doo-doo

I think I've seen you before, it's making me feel alright
I think I've known you before, I think I left you behind

I'm feeling lucky, you know it's time I win
I don't mean I'm afraid of the time put in
Well that's how it goes, and that's how it lies

Dutudu, dutudu, doo-doo
Dutudu, doo-dutudu, doo-doo dutudu, dutu-doo-doo
Track Name: Long Time
Meet me down the road a ways
Keep quiet, I don't want you to say to anyone what we got going on here
I don't think they'd understand

Why don't you park in the shade by that big oak tree
Grab the body and put him in the driver's seat
We'll make like we just came along, we found him on his own
And it was frightening

Well, I've known you for a long time
And I'm so sorry to lose control
Well, I broke through to some dark side
Let's keep this quiet
We'll blue sky-it, 'cuz we're in love

These traffic rules weren't made yesterday
You gotta yield, you can't just accelerate
My god what does the evidence say?
That's some CSI shit, man
They're gonna put me away
They're gonna put me away

Well, I've known you for a long time
And I'm so sorry to lose control
And I broke through to some dark side
We'll keep this quiet
We'll blue sky-it, 'cuz we're in love

Don't leave me here to answer all these questions
Don't leave me here, it's not the way we planned
Oh god my dear I'm gonna get blamed for all these things
You know how I fear (in general) along the way
You think and you know and you wait for a long, long time
Who's gonna believe me darlin' for the rest of my life?
Well, that's a long time
A long time
Well, that's a long time
A long time
Well, that's a long time
Track Name: Spark
This is more than you should know
I can't tell you which way to go
There's a feeling my heart is exploding, again
Maybe we should let it go, girl
Maybe we should let it show
We could be like we're living on sunshine

And I, I got an empty heart
I fill it up and then it falls apart
And I need you to gimme a chance, gimme a spark

Now I've said way too much
In this moment of weakness, I must
You know I'm feeling ok, I always mean what I say to you
Maybe we should take it slow, girl
Maybe we could let let the world know
Maybe we should let it be because they'll find out on their own

And I, I got an empty heart
I fix it up and then it falls apart
And I need you to gimme a chance, gimme a spark

Maybe we could find an island out at see
We'll build a house and raise a family
We'll catch some fish to eat

Here, even after all we've had all this alcohol
You know I still feel the same way about you that I always do

And I...
I, I fill it up and then it falls apart
And I need you to gimme a chance, gimme a spark
Track Name: Maggie
What's the matter with you girl, the look on your face
There's a lot of something-wrong for you as of late
Must be something easier than taking your heart out and draggin' it all over the place, after all
After all, after all, after all

Try to make it ok and do my best to erase
Easy enough to understand the pain and your broken faith
Take it slow and maybe go looking for you just to give me once chance to replace
After all, after all, after all

Maggie I won't let you down
It's nice to have you here kicking around
And everybody here will make sure you're not left out
Close your eyes and wake up in this house

Making you a promise I'll keep every day
You feel the cool grass and the sunshine on your face
Then you close your eyes and feel a warm bed and nice things like love, a good soul should have in spades
After all, after all, after all

Maggie I won't let you down
It's nice to have you here kicking around
And everybody here will make sure you're not left out
Close your eyes and wake up in this house

The very likes of you teaches us everything old is new
Hold your head high
And if you need help I would surely give it out to you

Looking out your window, can you feel that smooth air?
Look at these friends you have, they do seem to care
And it seems like they want you to stay
After all
After all
After all

Maggie I won't let you down
It's nice to have you here kicking around
And everybody here will make sure you're not left out
Close your eyes and wake up in this house
Track Name: Ray Of Sunshine
I'm fighting for sleep on this ten hour drive
There's no chance I'll be home tonight, I'm sorry now
This ain't no small town, you gotta dream big
You gotta make money and you gotta think quick
I'll come back around
I hope this works out somehow

I don't know why you care for me
All I do is make you cry
Maybe someday I'll be there for you
With a fresh bouquet of flowers, a ray of sunshine and a sparkle in my eye

Twenty two smokes and thirty five beers
Dreams seem real, I kick the shit our of fears
I worry about you now
I got rocks to break and no time to waste
You work real hard and you stay a little late
That's when they give you a raise
And think about those better days

I don't know why you care for me
All I do is let you down
Maybe someday I'll be standing there
With a fresh bouquet of flowers, a ray of sunshine and a sparkle in my eye

Oh why do you always say "Don't give me the runaround"
I can feel you from a thousand miles away
And I'm feeling it come unwound

I got a few jobs and I'm picking up steam
I'll be home by June with a brand new scheme
I mean it this time
The money's alright but the work is so hard
I'm breaking my back and I'm tired and scarred
That's my calling card
And I send this to you with best regards

I don't know why you care for me
All I do is make you cry
Maybe someday I'll be there for you
With a fresh bouquet of flowers, a ray of sunshine and a sparkle in my eye
Track Name: On A Plane
I'm on a plane
It takes me away from here, and I'm sad
I'll be awake
Watching miles from the sky, flying fast
All I ask is get me on the ground
Safe and sound

I'm on a chase
Feeding and facing fears, and time drags
Don't say it's too late
So much time wasted here
'cuz we have what no one else has
Just get me on the ground
Safe and sound

It keeps you waiting, it keeps you waiting all this time
It keeps you waiting, it keeps you waiting all this time
It keeps you waiting, it keeps you waiting all this time
It keeps you waiting, it keeps you waiting all this time
