Track Name: Pink & Green
Pink and green, pink and green
Roses blooming in the weeds
Yellow and blue, yellow and blue
Sunlight shining in my room

Hard to believe I lied in bed all week
When I want so badly to receive the
Easy gifts of all things good
But there was another shooting in Ingelwood
And 10,000 thirsty in Hollywood
In Hollywood

Pink and green, pink and green
Babies reaching up towards leaves
Yellow and blue, yellow and blue
Street lights pouring over you

Help my mind to forget what it’s been
I’m the hypocrite, I’m the pessimist
I’ll close my eyes to a mist of rain
Just to miss the storm each day
Just to miss the storm each day
The sweeping shades
The lovely gray

Pink and green, pink and green
Beauty overwhelming me
Yellow and blue, yellow and blue
Sun and sky invading you

Pink and green, pink and green
Can’t you hear the forest sing?
Yellow and blue, yellow and blue
Swimming in a creek bed pool
Track Name: High as Lightning
High high as lighting every friday after five
High when I wanna be; smoke keeps rising to the sky
Oh what I hate is city traffic stopped for miles
So so close to home, could almost see your lips, taste your smile
Could almost taste your lips and bite your smile

Loud loud as thunder in the summer and in the spring
Crash through the ceiling when I need to hear you sing
Oh what I love is nothing going on and nothing new
We we got it all lying helpless in your room
Free and helpless in your room
Track Name: Mike & Katie
We’ll think back to where we first met
Few years ago, few years ago
We were kids just starting up school
Killing time with your friends and mine

Some days fun crashed a wave twenty feet tall
Dance breaks, staying up late, having a ball

Now both grown and planning our time
Still more to go, still more to go
Who knows where we’ll settle our life
But i’ll be there and you’ll be there

The Nashville or Boston who cares I’ll be with you
New York the hand-numbing cold but i’ll help you through

Look in my eyes
My feet on the ground
With you by my side
We’ll figure it out

Think ahead to our little house
You’ll read your books, read your books
I’ll bake bread or write down my thoughts
Then we’ll both cook, yeah we’ll both cook

Love comes, love comes on strong and topples us all
We’ll sleep and make up a bed wherever we fall

Look in my eyes
My feet on the ground
With you by my side
We’ll figure it out
Track Name: Open Up
“Open up” she said and played with my hand
“Open wide, it’s all right.
I’ll reach down right through your chest
Loving organs and all of the rest”

Well do you like what you found?
Don’t lie, don’t lie

Did you mind when I first came around?
Jokes at parties we’re missing right now
Punk rock music we danced to so slowly
Was I better when you didn’t know me?

Did you like what you found?
Don’t lie Don’t lie

Burn the books that are bringing you down
Burn the journals, CDs by the pound
Throw the ash in a locked little room
Walk away from the smell of the plume

Do I like who I am?
I can’t hide I can’t hide

“Close your eyes” she said and covered our heads
Cotton sheets warming me
“You can sigh til the stars all burn out
I’ll still be here to dance round the house”
Track Name: TN, I-24E
It’s when I drive up on a Saturday night
And you’re lying there with sleep still in your eyes

I can feel okay with your heart next to mine
My bad habits fade with one easy sigh

My voice my voice cries all day
My heart my heart it pulls your way
My voice my voice can spit some lies
My heart my heart a moonlit shine

Moonlit shine
Track Name: Bummer
Bring it back to me whatever you stole
Cause I’m a real bummer wherever I go
Track Name: Sentimental Heart
What’s worse when you call me -
what’s worse when you call?
Is it wanting you beside me or is it thinking of the fall?

I can’t help the things I feel
I won’t apologize for any tears
I can’t help the things I feel right now

How many times could a movie bring me right down to tears?
Have me crying for my family like I’ve been away for years

I can’t help the things I feel
I won’t ever think to dry these tears
I can’t help the things I feel right now

Neurological disorder or just conditioned from the start
I don’t know of any answer for the sentimental heart

I can’t help the things I feel
I won’t ever think to dry these tears
I can’t help the things I feel right now

Every ending makes me sick
