Track Name: Roads
You know that place that feels so safe that you never wanna leave
You go down roads and you always know where each will lead
because there were the times, there were the nights where we

Parked our cars in the middle of a road
Sat in a street where nobody drove
then we stayed there for hours
on our backs watching shooting stars

And time goes by and as hard as you try it's never gonna be the same
but you always know which way is home even after you leave

And I hope I find that place real soon
where we're staring at the stars, we're staring at the moon
it takes so time to try and find another place where we can stay and

Park our cars in the middle of a road
sit in a street where nobody goes
Then we'll stay there for hours
on our backs watching shooting stars, watching shooting stars

Never wanna leave, never wanna leave, never wanna never wanna leave again
Never wanna leave, never wanna leave, never wanna never wanna leave again
Track Name: Brooklyn
We said, “Don't forget the nights under California skies.”
I'm such a fool, such a fool for you
But your eyes can't hide the truth
that these roads weren't meant for you
And that you'll be leaving soon cause I know you
I know you, I know you

Brooklyn you need time
and I know that you will find the way life ought to be
Brooklyn keep in mind that I'm hoping that you find
your new york city dreams

So we stayed on different sides,
we were finished but we tried
Still I'm a fool, such a fool for you
Now it's trains and cabs and lights,
and so long to countrysides
Where I lay under the skies and think of you

I know you, I know you

Brooklyn you need time
and I know that you will find the way life ought to be
Brooklyn keep in mind that I'm hoping that you find
your new york city dreams

But how good would California feel tonight
how good would California feel tonight
You know I love you
and I know you gotta feel what's right
But how good would California feel tonight
how good would California feel tonight
Track Name: Baskets
It started out simple;
I loved when you smiled - you loved when I sang,
And maybe it was us we were fooling
'cause we thought that was nothing that'd get in our way
But slowly we built up our worries,
we stacked them between us, hoped they'd go away
Now sometimes I wonder where you are,
I used to know that every second of the day

It seems that we can't find a way
to take us as simple as we came
did we make it so complicated
that we couldn't be together anymore

I wish we could take all our worries
and put them in baskets and wash them away
I wish we could still have those moments
where nothing else matters besides you and me

But it seems that we can't find a way
to take us as simple as we came
did we make it so complicated
that we couldn't be together anymore

I will always wish the best for you
even when it's years since you've gone
I will always wish the best for you
even when you're out on your own
I will always wish the best for you
even when we don't speak for months
I will always wish the best for you
even when new lovers come

I wish we could take all our worries
and put them in baskets and wash them away
Track Name: Broadway
She dreamed all her life of the opposite coast
so she saved up her money and she backed up her clothes
for the chance to be on broadway
for the chance to be an actress in new york

She does what she can but she never has more
than a subway pass, a meal and a living room floor
where she sleeps to be near broadway
where she sleeps is so far from me

and I say, Broadway
You're so lucky

'cause she wants you
and she wants you to want her so bad
so take your chance. 



So listen up Broadway, I've got something to say
there are ten thousand girls who arrive everyday
for the chance to be on broadway
for the chance to be an actress in new york

And one of those thousands is the girl with my heart
she's a brunette whose voice will just rip you apart
and she wants to be on broadway
what she wants is so far from me

Broadway
You're so lucky
'cause she wants you
and she wants you to want her so bad
Track Name: Tree
If you were a tree what tree would you be
Could I climb up your branches and stay in your leaves
If you were a bird for what would you sing
For the stars in the night, for the sun in the morning

And I want to know, if I can touch your collar bones
And I want to see, all the secret things
you said that you would show me

If you were a ship and you sailed on the sail
when you put down your compass would you come home to me
Because you have wings where bones should be
will you climb the honey tree and sing the bees asleep with me

Because I want to know, if I can touch your collar bones
And I want to see, all the secret things
you said that you would show me

If you were a ship and you sailed on the sail
when you put down your map would you come home to me
If you were a tree what tree would you be
Could I climb up your branches and stay in your leaves
Track Name: Missing You
Your rocks hit my window
but you know I sleep so sound
Even your tears won't wake me
As you call me from two stories down
Wake up and come and let me in
cause god i'm missing you

now I call you far too often
and I'm sure it drives you nuts
but my calls are like your rocks were
i'm only hoping that you'll pick up and say
Wake up and come and let me in
cause god i'm missing you

I'm throwing rocks towards you now
I'm trying to find something else to do now
Track Name: World Traveler
I hope you find your way,
I hope you're out there safe,
world traveler


I hope you get your break,
I hope you're out there safe,
world traveler

Where you go, I go too,
I already told you

I know that your feet will carry you home
(we'll find a way, we'll find a way)

I hope that you feel that you're never alone
(when you're far away, when you're far away)
I hope when we meet that it's always the same
(we'll find a way, we'll find a way)
I know everyday that you think of my name

I hope you find your way,
I hope you're out there safe,
world traveler
we'll find a way, we'll find a way
Track Name: I Know You Well
i know you well
but there are circumstances
where i can't tell what's on your mind
i know you well

so i don't, i won't
let you, let you
i don't i won't
let you know

that i just can't take it
if i know i have to make it alone
and i just won't bother
if our ship is sinking then i'm alone

i hate goodbyes
i wear my hat down low
so you can't see what's on my mind
i hate goodbyes

so i dont, i wont
let you, let you
i don't, i won't
let you know

that i just can't take it
if i know i have to make it alone
and i just won't bother
if our ship is sinking then i'm alone

and then you're alone
and where will you go
whose hand will you hold
cause you cant be alone
i know you well
i know you well

i know you well
but there are circumstances
where i can't tell you what's on my mind
Track Name: Lions Park
Lions Park

I knew why you had asked me
to meet you in Lions Park
and I came prepared with the shots
from the booth that you left in a card
and i tried to say that this was a mistake
but that wasn't what you wanted to hear
so everytime i see your face
or hear your name ill think of

Lions Park - where we thought
that you and i would go on together
Lions park - where we went to escape
but i didn't think you'd bookend it this way.

i should start to take down
all of the pictures that hang around me
and the cards that say
"we're puzzle pieces that fit perfectly"
and as hard as i'll try I won't be surprised
if im finding pieces of you for some time
so everytime i sing a song
about you i will think of

Lions Park - where we thought
that you and i would go on forever
Lions Park - where we went to escape
oh i didn't think you'd bookend it this way.

oh how foolish of me to trust in you
to actually believe that you'd here for me in

Lions Park - where we thought
that you and i would grow old together
Lions Park - where we went to escape
but i didn't think you'd bookend it this way.
Track Name: Fine
Don't you see that we can make it
We can make it if we try
And don't you see that when we're breaking
We're only breaking in our minds

So won't you try
To keep in mind
That everything heals in time
And we'll all be fine

Don't you know you can't control
The way things go all the time
Don't try and force the course of life
'Cause there's only trouble you will find

Give yourself time
To try and find
The way that the world will unwind
And remember you'll be fine

So go and do your best
To get it off your chest
And give it a little time
You've hit me with the worst
And god you know it hurts
Just give it a little time
We'll be fine
We'll be fine

Try and do your best
To get it off your chest
And remember you'll be fine
