Track Name: In Reveries
I was drifting til I met you
a Jellyfish in the sea
felt like I'd always been waiting
for your company

I wanted so badly to touch you
you made me want to sing,
but my arms they are useless
for I can only sting

in dreams I am free
in reveries

you're morning
you're morning
you're morning
you're mourning.
Track Name: Penny Please
I've been waiting here for you
while time's been tearing me in two
take a step outside the lines
beyond the limits that confine

been trapped inside these tiny shoes
with a heart this big I'm always confused
time's changing faster than I can tell
thrown all my pennies down a wishing well

I'll hold your hand while we sleep
curse these bad dreams

next to you I feel my heart race
winning matters and I want first place
can't look back I can't give up
not gonna blame this on bad luck

can't explain why you mean to me
a mighty bull, a trusty steed
you're not like everybody else
you understand my silent yells

I'll hold your hand while we sleep
curse these bad dreams

like a possom I play dead
won't be able to when my soul is read
no more time for our white lies
I can see it in your eyes

we all have dozens of ideas
it's up to us to make them real
our perception keeps us strong
fear everything or move along

I'll hold your hand while we sleep
curse these bad dreams
Track Name: Feel Bet-r
I wrote you a letter the pain self-addressed
I don't want to argue it's already a mess

I am trying to find
some peace of mind
so let's take our time
figure this out

I want to love you,
but if it's not right what can i do?
& I hope you understand this
it'll all work out

hold, hold, hold out your hands
and spin, spin as fast as you can
everything will be alright
so get some sleep tonight

run, run, run to keep up
fight, fight, fight it's not enough
it'll be over soon
it was always up to you

everything will be alright
so baby, get some sleep tonight

everything will be fine
happiness is just a state of mind
Track Name: Shoulder
there is a calling deep inside my chest
& it’s screaming “this is all you’ve got left”
screaming “hold on”

don’t you whisper, don’t you whisper
what you want me to hear
what you want me to hear
I live without the fear
that you’ve got in your eyes

screaming “hold on”

& our eyes are slowly shutting down
& your hands are screaming things I can’t make out
that I can’t make out

screaming “hold on” to me
hold on, baby.
Track Name: Foolish
I’m burning inside my skin
you brought the feeling back
I want to be numb again,
but around you I can’t relax

baby, I’m a fool
I’m a fool for this

& darling I don’t ‘ooh’
at your ‘oooh’s
oh, you knew

all my love is gone
I’m lost and I should have known
that you’d fall through

& did you know I’m scared to die?
yet it’s the only garuntee there is in life

& did you know I’m scared to be alone?
yet it’s the only way, it’s the only way
its the only way I’ve ever known

baby, I’m a fool
I’m a fool for this

& darling
do you ever think in time we might make some sort of sense?
Track Name: Summer's Slumber
Baby my baby, lay by my side.
When I am with you I've got no need to hide.

Baby my baby, sleep next to me.
Inside your arms is where I am meant to be.
Perfectly, perfectly.
