Track Name: Pam
You sat next to me
While everyone was moving their feet
I loved the way you leaned on me
And I'll say your name
The name behind a million words
Not capable of describing you
A Perfect pretty girl
And lately I've been scraping over you
But my words can hardly be construed
If everything I sang was a wish
You'd be right here with me

I will take you everywhere I've been, whoa
And I will hold you till my hands won't grip, whoa

I like the things that make me feel relaxed
She doesn't know it but it’s when I'm looking in her eyes
She’s so beautiful
She’s so beautiful to me
She’s so beautiful
I don't want to do it alone
Let’s explore every last street of New York
We'll take the high the low, I don't care where we go
As long as you're smiling next to me

I will take you everywhere I've been, whoa
And I will hold you till my hands won't grip, whoa

Again I'll lie and say I'm selfish
My own demise
I cannot help this
You're taking steps away from me
I'm the fallen paint from my ceiling
The scriptures written on the page
Will lay my head to rest
Just do or tell a yes or no
You're killing me and you're still home


I will take you everywhere I've been, whoa
And I will hold you till my hands won't grip, whoa
I will take you everywhere I've been, whoa
And I will hold you till my hands won't grip, whoa
Track Name: Pike St.
I saw you walking towards me
I've never felt better than admiring your smile
And you'll say hello again, and again I’ll stutter
I'm following your glance
And you'll walk, and you'll glow, my insecurities will grow
What must a boy like me do to have a girl like you?
That’s my question
Just make your eyes talk once again

And you wanted to hang but then sat with them instead
What did I do? I got up and left
Climbed a roof, sang a song, got arrested
Its days like these that make me feel like shit
And the most I’ll get is distant admiration
So limit your dreams Mike, limit your dreams
Maybe then you'll reach more than reality

So
Maybe you'll give me a chance
In the near future maybe for a minute
Rather than forever
I’m so used to small talk
So stop laying more stops
I’m delayed either way, every day
Will I catch the train?
Will I catch the train?

Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa

So
Maybe you'll give me a chance
In the near future maybe for a minute
Rather than forever
I’m so used to small talk
Stop laying more stops
I’m delayed either way, every day
Will I catch the train?
Will I catch the train?
Maybe you'll give me a chance
In the near future maybe for a minute
Rather than forever
I’m so used to small talk
Stop laying more stops
I’m delayed either way, every day
Will I catch the train?
Will I catch the train?
Will you hold the door?
Track Name: Maple
Whoa When your hair shines sunset red, when the suns over your head
Found the best times in the glimpse of your smile
Whoa when I'm listening to you
Talk about the books that you’re into
Deep thought, smile at the conversation
Late night open eyes

Oh When I'm thinking feeling blue
Frames hugging artwork about you
Fly across my system like a shooting star
Whoa you’re like the rain in the spring
One of my all time favorite things
Oh it seems like all I have to bring
Is wasted time and lullabies

And your name is something sweet
And you're killing me, killing me alright
With the corners of your lips (you're smiling)
And if only you would know
The perfect words your name was brought to be

Another wave
The moon will pull
Me away
Stars from you
Your talks are like no whispers in
Space my mind is traveling
The ground I'm on
Is crumbling
It’s had enough misery
Your art like ears, a harps no fear
My eyes will see but my chest is a mystery

Whoa you can still want something that’s very unlikely to come
And I think that’s what’s keeping me up
Whoa when I think of you and I
Will I ever be compromised?
I’ll be drawing signals on your phone
That’s evident, I'm missing you

I always looked at you the way you never looked at me
I’d take you somewhere where the stars are visible
You'll look up and grin
And I’ll be fine with my eyes laid on you
There’s more to the universe in you

And you'll be fine tonight
Ignoring the signals that I'm sending your eyes
With your friends drinking on a Saturday night
While I'm pushing this wood to a shot of a light
Another, highway with a view of the sky
Fast paced cars without a care in their minds
I’m counting the stars that are left
I’m counting the songs in my head

Another wave
The moon will pull
Me away
Stars from you
Your talks are like no whispers in
Space my mind is traveling
The ground I'm on
Is crumbling
It’s had enough misery
Your art like ears, a harps no fear
My eyes will see but my chest is a mystery

And finally, stop wandering
I’ve spoken to the universe
Apparition, never seen something like it
Flowers sunset, I fearfully love her
Within, within miles within
I've drowned to trenches
Still floating in space
Your Colors are beautiful
Your sea is so magical
Black table cloth with salt all over
A micro dust that’s us again
With our temporary light
A planetary nebula
The ending so extraordinary
Speak to the stars
Though we're not the same
Gliding green, petrichor's true
A crying sky, a walk through Manu
Spiritual travel, a can't catch up
A fragrance present, beautifully strange
Show it all with a smile
Track Name: World's Against Me
Sun rising and my eyes wide
I wonder if she ever thinks about me
Late night talks with her
Nothing more than a dream
It’s long gone with her smile and her voice

I hate the nights you crawl inside my head
The way you grip my brain
With your bare hands
Please understand
That time slipped by
Once again

I do feel alone most of the time
I’ve grown to rely on it to keep me from pretending I'm fine
If your smile won’t leave
I guess I'm where I'm supposed to be
When that’s the worst I know that I should leave

I hate the nights you crawl inside my head
The way you grip my brain
With your bare hands
Please understand
That time slipped by
Once again

I don't know where to turn anymore
The worlds against me, against me
I don't know where to turn anymore
The worlds against me, you're against me
Track Name: Kicking My Wall Again (Limerence)
Isolation, one of my best attributes
You shaped who I am, now I’m calling out to you
I know but I can’t show
I’m simply better off alone
Being torn is the closest I’ll ever get to her

When will I stop thinking about her?
It’s been a fucking year and I’m struggling with change
These late night walks replace
3 AM fights and laughs they fade
Yet her smile still remains and I’m still kicking my wall again

These cold summer nights make me fear the winter more
I’m not the same so don’t ever treat me like before
How can someone so far away constantly step on you?
Being on the floor is the closest I’ll get to know myself

When will I stop thinking about her?
It’s been a fucking year and I’m struggling with change
These late night walks replace
3 AM fights and laughs they fade
Yet her smile still remains and I’m still kicking my wall again

Here I am finding myself
Every night falling deeper in
I missed you more yesterday but everyday seems like the first
I can’t shut my eyes and sleep
Restless nights keep telling me
I am the bug inside the house
Sees the window but won’t get out

When will I stop thinking about her?
It’s been a fucking year and I’m struggling with change
These late night walks replace
3 AM fights and laughs they fade
Yet her smile still remains and I’m still kicking my wall again
