Track Name: Seventies
I figured this song would write itself when I saw you standing there
Because the way the light met your eyes
I didn't think I'd ever
See you again

Forget the times
That you disappeared
And regret the lies
That you told yourself to see him again
If you think it's right
Then dance baby like you used to
Back when you were mine
And I'll cherish the memories that you never gave to me

Blame all your problems on the fool that writes songs for you

Your perfect timing
And your pretty remarks
Made all of the others
Forget the words to our songs
So why are you here?
And why do I care about
The way that your hair
Is falling down

Your perfect timing
And your pretty remarks
Made all of the others
Forget the words to our songs
So get outta here
Just get out of here
We want to sing the words

Forget the times
That you disappeared
And regret the lies
That you told yourself to see him again
If you think it's right
Then dance baby like you used to
Back when you were mine
And I'll cherish the memories that you never gave to me

Blame all your problems on the fool that wrote songs for you
Track Name: Can't Help Falling In Love (Elvis Cover)
Wise men say
Only fools rush in
But I can't help
Falling in love with

Shall I stay
Would it be a sin
If I can't help falling in love with you

Like I river flows
Surely to the sea
Oh darling, so it goes
Some things
Are meant to be

Take my hand
Take my whole life too
'Cause I can't help falling in love with you

'Cause I can't help falling in love with you
Track Name: Until
If only 'til the morning,
Weather says it's storming
If only 'til the morning,
lay here beside me

If only 'til the morning,
Darling it was cold here, until
You came in through the pouring rain
I want you to lay beside me

Because if all of the stars in my brain would explode
I wouldn't be here talking to walls
I wish that I could have been there before the flood
But I ran away long before then

If only 'til the morning,
Darling it is cold here now
If only 'til the morning
Stay here with the stars now

Show me all the stories that you wrote for your friends
Show me all the bitter tastes you left them then
At the time of your innocence
When the world was a street long
But I saw your dreams among them
And you'll live on

I found a way to the surface of the water

If only 'til the morning
Weather says it's pouring
If only 'til the morning
Lay here beside me

Because if all of the stars in my brain could explode
I wouldn't be here talking to walls
I wish that I could have been there before the flood
But I ran away long before then

Because if all of the stars in my brain could explode
I wouldn't be here talking to walls
I wish that I could have been there before the flood
But I ran away

Show me all the stories that you wrote for your friends
Show me all the bitter tastes you left them then
At the time of your innocence
When the world was a street long
But I found your dreams
And you'll live on

I found a way to the surface of the water
Track Name: Vault
Lately I've been reading the letters that I
Wrote to you
So when I begin to stutter when we're alone
I hope that you're listening

'Cause I am drifting through the space between dreaming
And the reality of trying to force practicality
We are flying too close to the sun
So why don't I mind
I've forgotten

So then we came back down
And they began to find out
That we weren't strong enough
And the noises were too loud

I've become the martyr
And you always started the fire
But this time
They warned me
Conceding never sounded so appealing

Lately I don't sound like I used to
But I can't forget the way that I loved you
So when I remember what you said to me

I still wonder
How I responded

Love was like chasing lions

Leaving my headaches to lie
On your bed, where we met
Evenings and cocktails
Will never let me forget

I am drifting through the space between dreaming
And the reality of trying to force practicality
We are flying too close to the sun
So why don't I mind
I've forgotten

Then we came back down
And they began to find out
That we weren't strong enough
And the noises were too

Loud
